    Xceed 144Hz Monitor with HDR from Checkers

    Man, when I got my cheap but 'fancy' monitor, and armed at the time with very little information on various considerations and technology in relation to monitors, suffice it to say, ghosting is not a word I ever wish to hear again. That said, it's bad, but is only noticeable under certain...

    International COVID-19 Updates & Discussion 2

    I'm honestly surprised that the liquid is flammable. I happen to have some, and I was about to go set it on fire, and realised I don't own a lighter. The places boredom can take a person...

    Who is still awake?

    I'm having a bout of insomia. It's not particularly late now, but I've had about 6 hours of sleep in total over the last 3 nights. I'm not enjoying this at all, to be honest.

    Ban on alcohol and cigarettes in South Africa remains

    He's not missing anything, since he's just discussing a particular slice of data. I'm not agreeing or disagreeing with him or with you, but you've just made claims, and provided no evidence, and as far as I can recall the only strong claim he made was that smoking is bad from a health...

    Ban on alcohol and cigarettes in South Africa remains

    I thought about this myself, and then realised that while this is a great solution for those that can afford to vape, it's probably not an equitable one for those that struggle to pay for some cheap tobacco and a pack of Rizla. The only answer that makes sense here is to allow the sale of...

    International COVID-19 Updates & Discussion 2

    I must admit I am shocked (and I really don't mean to sound condescending), at how many armchair experts are mouthing off about various aspects of the pandemic, when literally worldwide, the most qualified people across the globe are tirelessly working to untangle a very complicated and...

    Xceed 144Hz Monitor with HDR from Checkers

    I would say it's going to differ depending on the type of game and other variables. I don't have a very speedy GPU (GTX 1070), and I'm running a 2K monitor @ 144Hz. What I can say is that I was playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey yesterday, which has an in-game performance 'report' screen, and I...

    Ban on alcohol and cigarettes in South Africa remains

    Not an endorsement of the ban (which is indefensible whether you like smoking or not, since the black market exists rendering the ban is entirely pointless, and is undoubtedly causing more trouble than it solves). Just so I am clear, my view on any drug is that personal consumption for...

    Here are the new level 3 lockdown rules

    For clarity, my further explanation doesn't reflect my opinion on the effectiveness (or lack thereof) of the measures taken in response to the emergence and spread of the virus - I was just trying to be more clear about what I meant about the situation being unprecedented, as I realise it was...

    Here are the new level 3 lockdown rules

    You could well be right. I really have no idea. Is it strange, really? Surely government has the capacity to enlist the best scientists, etc? What they do with that information is of course another story, and to be fair, I feel that the initial response was pretty good. It was when they went...

    Quick question to those paranoid about tracking

    Practically, I don't really care (about myself), because the convenience of technology is worth more to me than my ability to avoid being tracked. If the nutjobs on Facebook are really worried about these sorts of things, wtf are they doing on Facebook to begin with... That said, of course I...
