^Aren't your machines hooked up to one-another?

Mine are; sometimes I watch films on TV, sometimes I only use the TV as a monitor...

Re: All I Got Left is My THREAD BOMBS!

Don't have a TV for one; and even if I had, my computer has a nice big screen with a great sound system. And unlike a tv I don't need a remote and I can alt-tab to other things.

I don't look things up when I watch movies. If I'm watching a movie, I'm laying back in my recliner under a blanket.

Yeah, if I'm watching a movie I am sitting on the couch with my feet up. Sitting at a computer to watch a movie is not my idea of a pleasurable movie watching experience. If I really feel the need to look something up I'll use my IMdb app.

I do occasionally use my computer to play movies using my HDMI out though, so I know what you mean about the mouse pointer appearing onscreen. Bugs the hell out of me too, which is why I avoid using my computer to watch movies if I can help it.

Yeah, well, I haven't actually watched any films directly from my computer since I acquired a server and a media-player (I still control the whole thing from the computer though).
But I used to just use the PC as the hardware and a (software-)mediaplayer for viewing video on my third monitor (the TV-set). And (despite it's 21:9 aspect ratio and 58"-size) my TV has a rather poor browser, for YT-vids anyway, so I tend to use the internet connectivity from my PC instead of watching that sort of content directly from the TV. -And 'mouse&keyboard&dedicated control monitor' is a superior control mechanism (when compared to an old-fashioned remote control anyway).




And now for something completely different:

You'd think this would just be a common sense rule that doesn't need to be verbalized, but for the clueless, don't post pictures of people taking a shit.

Definitely need to add that to the posting rules...

May be sensitive, so I'm putting this in spoilercode:

It's saying that anyone would agree the first two would be shockingly racist caricatures, yet somehow the third is hunky dory. The Cleveland Indians are an American baseball team. There's been plenty of debate as to the political correctness of the team name.
