Found a kind of solution for my games not scaling/aspect ratioing, found and app called QuickChangeResolution.exe and with some help created a bat file that resizes the screen, launches the game, then waits for the game to exit before resizing back to normal.

The baseball episode of Deep Space Nine is SO GOOD. Worf had me cracking up. I'm almost done. Having to rush through before its off Netflix.

Yep. I somehow missed DS9 when I was young. I watched TNG and Voyager but never got around to DS9. I am really enjoying it.
If you have access to a VPN DS9 is available in almost every other county besides USA on netflix

I just got a surprise pay raise :hsd: Now I am going to have to work super hard again and stress out of guilt.
When was the last time you had a raise? If it's been longer than a year and it's less than 25% I would say nope, they are just trying to make sure they keep you...

I got 2% earlier this year and now just got another 3.5% :rofl: Better than nothing though and I've really been chilling out on how much I work and worry. I'm more focusing on just my own thing now and keeping it easier on myself.

Yeah, that's not even a cost of living increase. It's definitely better than nothing though. My last 2 gigs combined I haven't gotten a single raise in over 7 years...

Luckily I was able to make up for it at my last job though. Even though I was salary we could still get OT, on average I was putting in over 500 hours of OT a year at time and a half... My current gig I don't get OT but it's WFH and I'm pretty much free to do just about anything between tickets as long as I'm available and I usually knock them out as they come in even if it's after hours, weekends etc... since I can normally complete them in a few minutes.

So I've been playing Days Gone on my Steam account on 3 different PC's

i9-10900KF
32gb 4000
NVME SSD
3080

i7-8700k
16gb 3200
NVME SSD
5700xt

i3-10105f
16gb 3200
SATA SSD
RX 570 4gb

The game can saturate the 3080 at 1440p on highest settings and not get me 120fps solid, but if I tune settings down and resolution scaling a bit I can even get 60fps on the shittiest system, and I don't really feel like I'm missing much.

I am starting to believe I've wasted too much money on parts that don't really matter to me :hs:

So far I haven't worked for a company stupid enough to pay me overtime on my salary :wtc:

Yeah, now that mining isn't as profitable I totally get it...
