My most heartfelt condolences, man. I know how it is to lose a close family member very suddenly... it's not easy, but you can get through this, and we can help you if you let us.

So having said all of that, it's still pretty damn fun. BD Wong, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Jeff Goldblum pop up every now and again to offer you nuggets of wisdom (well, to say frequently smarmy things).

Amusing but it goes on a bit long. I love that movie, even though the science was laughable at best, and most of the animals in it belonged to the Cretaceous Period. It was one of her favorites too. I bought this at Wal-Mart the other day. 

 

Thanks again, everyone, for your kind words and thoughts. I'm going to get through this because I have to and because it's what she would want. She had some physical and mental health problems, so we had occasionally discussed the idea that she might die before I do, and, frankly, that's how she wanted it. She told me on more than one occasion (and I knew she was serious because that was not something we joked about) that she would kill herself not long after I died if I happened to die first. She felt that she literally could not live without me. We aren't kids anymore, but I still always thought that in a worst-case scenario, we would have had more time than this. I try to keep my thoughts focussed because railing against the injustice of it or blaming her for leaving me here are just pointless and stupid rabbit holes to go down. For my part, I'm going to try really hard not to turn into one of those guys who is constantly talking about his wife. But I probably will be one of those guys for a while. I don't know that I can help it. I think I'm officially late for work now. I'll "see" you knuckle-draggers later. 

 

By the way, I should say that I'm sorry to hear about bah. I didn't know him particularly well, as I didn't really participate in many (I'm up to a total of 1) bro nights, and I'm also still not well-versed in "chat" technology, despite being relatively tech-savvy for an old guy. Nevertheless, he seemed like a decent guy from his posts and the world always needs more of those.

Warreni, go ahead and post about your wife all you want or need to.  It can't be any worse than any of the other nonsense that gets posted here routinely  :D/ .  If it does you some good, I can't think of a single person here who would object.  

 

We're here for you.

Warreni, I'm so sorry for your loss...  I know I couldn't comprehend being in your shoes right now...  I would be listless without my wife.  I doubt there's anything I can do for you on my end but if there is don't hesitate to shoot me a PM...  We view this community the same, as extended family, so please don't hesitate to lean on me or others as you need to.

My deepest condolences Warreni, to you and your family. Just last night I sent a message to my mother telling her I love her, she immediatly asked me wth did I want from her, but needless to say this is such an important and profound reminder to not be jerks, specially with your loved ones. Much love.

Really sorry to hear about your loss, warreni. As a married CAG I can only imagine what that it would be like to experience such a loss. I've always hoped that I'll be the first to go, even after she inevitably leaves me for the UPS guy.

 

Also, wow, I did not know about bah until today. So sad. I haven't been able to make a brodate in a long time since parenting duties have completely absorbed my weekday evenings but I have lots of fond memories of Rocket League, corn grass, Jackbox Party Pack nonsense, Sensual Jesus, and many others best left unspoken. Really wish now I could have made a few more nights over the past year. He was always a fixture and a big part of what made those nights fun.

That's funny. Yeah, it's worth a little incredulity to be damn sure they know how you feel. That's one thing I'm glad I didn't have to worry about. Of the thousand things that I feel I will always second-guess myself about, I can say this: my wife definitely knew that I loved her and I know that she loved me as much as it's possible to love another person. I suppose I'm glad of that.

So the thing about UPS guys is that being fast is generally considered a disadvantage by women when it comes to bedroom activities--you may be safe. . . .

No experience w/ Cyberpower PC's - but the specs on both of those are awesome.

 

Since both are NVidia-based, I will also advise this: go for a 120hz G-Sync ready monitor. I have never experienced anything so smooth in my life, gameplay-wise. As good as playing anything at 60fps is - that feels like crap, when compared to what comes out of a 120hz monitor w/ G-Sync support.

Thanks for this recommendation. My 27" G-Sync monitor arrived today and it's glorious. I took my 27" Freesync monitors and turned them on their sides to give me a triple screen setup. I'm gonna rock some serious solitaire on this thing.

@Synnarc

 

OMG @ that above set-up w/ the three monitors. That looks awesome and insanely cool. :)

 

I really hope you enjoy your new rig. I bet it's insanely awesome!

 

And I hope you especially enjoy the G-Sync monitor, as I think this is the biggest game-changer for me in playing games. If you don't have G-Sync - even when playing games, even w/ all the power, you can still takes performance hits & feel something...even if it's say 10 frame loss. You'll notice it, even if you normally are at 60fps and have one small hit to say 50fps; especially in fast-paced games.

 

Playing games at 30fps or 60fps w/ No-Sync, V-Sync, or Fast Sync is no comparison. As good as even 60fps can be - meh, any of that is crap compared to what 120fps w/ G-Sync and taking even nasty 30fps hits (down to say 90fps) does when playing...i.e. you still feel nothing b/c everything moving so fast anyways, no graphical tearing, no stutters, nothing. Smooth as butter and silky smooth as can be, no matter what happens.

 

I think with your new super-rig and especially G-Sync, you're gonna be in Gaming Heaven.

 

I seriously need to find a G-Sync monitor for my main desktop PC at a decent sale sometime. 60fps with anything that isn't G-Sync just isn't the same anymore.

 

Enjoy your PC!

 

EDIT:

Is that a G502 mouse there I see? That mouse rules.

The G502 is such a great mouse. I'd sex it right in its mouth if I could.
