Seems everything would be jumbled... everything that happened on the first of every month would be first, then second of every month... etc. Or am I not missing something?

Everything that happens on the first of each month is the most important which is why you did it first.  Everything else of diminishing importance gets pushed further back into the month.  Therefore, it makes the most sense to prioritize your files by the day first, then the month.  schooled.gif

Doesn't work in all situations.

 

Sometimes I want to modify/create something that needs to be in a different chronological place (trimming down a video or photo).

I don't think it's been mentioned in this thread yet, but SEGA just announced Two Point Hospital, the spiritual successor to Theme Hospital.

And apparently the two heads of this development team also worked on the original Theme Hospital.  I'm very much looking forward to this (as long as SEGA doesn't interfere much and lets them do their thing).

You know, it actually would have been easier for you to simply change the date on your own rather than typing out that explanation for the incorrect date format. But you took those extra few seconds out of your life to point out that the rest of the world is wrong. And for that, I salute you.

ISO 8601, yyyy-mm-dd > all countries not using it

Yeah, looks exactly as I would imagine a modern Theme Hospital. I hope SEGA partnership doesn't mean DLCs.......

And if the game success we could see Two Point Dungeon Keeper also.

 

Ok, first DLC be called "Obamacare"

You can manually set correct one :P (Modify is better since it stays when copying).

 

Anyways using dates in filenames is in most cases definitely easier.

If my desktop smells like something is burning and I haven't opened it up in maybe five years and then it starts making noises that sound like an animal dying inside, I probably have a fan issue, right?

Not yet. I don't know which one is doing it. The damn case has like four or five on the outside, two on the processor heatsink, and two on my SLI setup. I've just left it powered off and haven't felt brave enough to venture into the jungle that is a 25-year-old's lack of interest in cable management.

This is what you do: Get a laundry basket, turn it upside down and place it over the computer.  Then, on top of the laundry basket, you place a new computer.  That should fix the problem.

Nope, that still doesn't address the burning issue.  Oxygen feeds fire and the laundry basket has holes on the side.  Best solution is to tape all the vents with duct tape and run it until the fire dies inside.

Just put a little food and water in the tower and see if you can nurse the animal back to health.

They probably watched that stupid fidget spinner video Ashit Pai made and instantly hated him (like the rest of America).

So, for everyone that is dmy, isn't naming files with dates confusing when you sort?

 

Seems everything would be jumbled... everything that happened on the first of every month would be first, then second of every month... etc. Or am I not missing something?

 

 

 

Everyone should just follow ISO 8601.

I use year-month-day because it seemed most logical for sorting.  I didn't realize there was an ISO for it.

Just be sure to burn the ISO to CD/DVD or use Daemon tools to virtually load the ISO.

Let's hope not. I honestly don't use my PC all that much nowadays so I'm in no rush, but I hate to see the thing go completely unused. Probably gonna open it up soon.

Why is it so difficult to remove the batteries from the Steam controller? I think it eats the batteries as long as the contacts are touching the battery. What a pain in the ass. I need to invest in some good rechargeable batteries for this thing.

Definitely get rechargeables.

 

Too bad they didn't add AA recharger to controller. I doubt it would've cost much more.

My mouse has integrated and it's very easy, just plugin usb cable when out of juice. No need to take battery out everytime. (Though at least it isn't as tight as steam controller so it comes off very easily).

Last night the bros played Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes.  I think it was in a Humble Monthly and I ignored it at the time because it said local MP only.  Works just as well online as long as you have voice chat since it's crucial.  One person is trying to defuse a bomb, the other people are telling that person what to do by consulting the bomb manual.  We had a decent turn out though some people were having connection issues and had to drop.  Plenty of explosions and they have leaderboards so you have a reason to keep defusing the same level.  Damn you LN/Stephen!  We will best you one day.
