  1. I eagerly await S3 and hope they follow through with these ideas:
  2. I recently learned that there’s a Spaceballs cartoon and am disappointed that it’s fucking awful
  3. I thought I read that was the eventual goal and is for v3.0? Maybe I’m mistaken.
  4. Compared to other headsets, this looks decent. The benefit of this is that it looks incredibly light weight. Obviously we’d need real specs to confirm.
  5. EVGA does this as well, but it’s a much slower grind. With the RTX cards, they actually prioritize people who didn’t get one from the waiting list/queue yet over ones who got, say, a 3080 from the queue and re-entered for a 3080 Ti.
  6. Yes, there's barely even a pinch to it as it's a very thin needle. However, most fears/phobias for needles isn't regarding the pain, it's the very sight of the needle that gives a reaction.
  7. How would a minimum framerate option keep a minimum framerate without dynamically changing resolution and/or graphical settings?
  8. All patients within the study were given molnupiravir or placebo within 5-days. We do not know how effective day 5 was vs day 1. We also must take into account that, in real world application, within 5-days of symptoms starting is a short window as one must recognize that they are sick, it might be covid, get a test, get a doctor's appointment and script for molnupiravir. It could be argued that if one has any "covid-like" symptoms they are immediately given a script for molnupiravir while they await a covid test, however, we do not know of any side-effects this pill may have yet. This is what I'm talking about when I say that we need more information before rejoicing. As I already stated, it is a step in the right direction, regardless, and I'm not arguing against that. What I am arguing is that this is not a substitute for vaccination, and one should not look at this pill as an alternative to vaccination. The Phase 3 trial was made public? Do you have a link? I never said or meant to insinuate otherwise.
  9. I’m aware As I said, I never attempted to be diagnosed, which is why I noted as such as I don’t want to misrepresent. However, my actions/whatever around needles fits (or used to) the phobia diagnosis. Even seeing ones on TV, video games, illustrations, descriptions, etc makes me cringe and my heart race and turn slightly pale. Every time someone posts a video or pic of them getting their vaccine, if I can see the actual needle on the syringe, my entire body shutters. I basically forced myself to find ways to deal with it, and it was not easy by any stretch of the imagination.
  10. I have a fear of needles, a big fear. I never bothered to be diagnosed as to if it’s actually a phobia or not, however, what’s helped me with blood work/shots/whatever is mostly to not look and keep my eyes shut as soon as I sit down. Alternatively, she could probably ask her doctor about xanax or something pre-vaccine.
  11. I get what you’re saying, but just to be clear: this pill is not a replacement for nor an alternative to a vaccine. It is not an oral vaccine. We need a lot more information about this pill before anyone rejoices; if it’s like tamiflu in terms of timing to be effective, it’s a step forward but isn’t going to help the majority of people dying or in the ICU. For clarity, Tamiflu needs to be taken within 24 hours of symptoms first starting for maximum effectiveness, 72 hours being the max before it’s almost worthless. I’m not saying this is the case with Merk’s pill, I’m citing examples of why we need a hell of a lot more information.
  12. Minimum framerate options are typically the same as dynamic resolution/details, aren’t they?
