However, he reveals that "since March of 1997" he doesn't really believe in anything. This could possibly refer to the March 26, 1997 incident in San Diego, California, where 39 Heaven's Gate cultists committed mass suicide at their compound. It is a plausible explanation, since one of them was the brother of Nichelle Nichols (a Star Trek actress), so the event got a big resonance in nerd circles (and Randall often refers to Star Trek in xkcd). However, given Black Hat's strange behavior, it could be anything, even Bill Clinton banning federal funding for human cloning research.

Ah right Unicode...

One line of questioning asked whether Carmack knew about a "secret meeting" in a hotel room with Oculus co-founders Nate Mitchell and Palmer Luckey, to which Carmack responded "No I didn't, it was a secret." A MacBook was brought up during questioning as well, with the lawyer asking why it was never wiped, with Carmack responding: "I am not a Mac user unless under duress."

None of the entertaining quotes from Carmack?

Same here, but since I switched to a 1080 (from a 290x), the Nvidia drivers come with an app to limit maximized windows to individual screens.
No more need to switch between surround and regular mode anymore.

I doubt it'll work, but you could try running the setup to extract the files and see if it works on your radeon

Pretty much the same situation as my mom; mid-sixties, fatal brain tumor, and a DNR (as well as no treatments/experiments, only quality of life).
She was a nurse for a few decades, so she had plenty of first hand experience of what the butchers (well-meaning, but still butchers) will do to keep a body "alive".

I'm not trying to say anything bad about E.R. doctors (that's a hard and usually shitty job), but they will try anything and try again.

There aren't your organs anymore, it's just a lump of deteriorating flesh soon to be a rotten sack of maggots.

Not to mention in the event of an accident, organ donors are much more likely to be allowed to die so that their organs can be harvested.

Oh, you're one of those, I suppose I shouldn't even bother posting this.

Cut me open and take whatever you need, though I'd stay away from the heart and lungs...
