  1. Dual Monitor setup?

  2. MadCast Donations

    Structurally I think we have a few things to think about: Account Structure. Currently all funds are held in a PP account and bills are paid directly from PP. If we integrate a second payment option we need to then explore options for financial consolidation. Other than banks I'm not sure what the capabilities are when crossing various fund transferring services. To be clear, MadCast does not currently hold an account with a financial institution that participates in fractional reserve banking (aka a bank). Being a not-for-profit community means 100% of donations go right back to the community and as such the balance never reaches a notable value. Integration. We utilize add-ins designed to work with PP and the software that runs our site. Ease of use is integral to maintaining a steady donation stream and we certainly do not want to make things more difficult to contribute to MadCast. Audience. Measuring the gain of additional donation options is more of a factor than one might think. It's not as simple as "well at least the option is there". In addition to the reasons noted above we need to evaluate the cost/benefit ratio of expanding our financial footprint. For example if the decision is made to create a bank account we have to evaluate the cost of fund transfers, banking fees, currency conversion (why that is a fee makes no sense to me), and I'm sure other factors. Legality. I'll leave the details of this one to those that have educated themselves on law. What I do know is that creating a bank account is not black and white. Establishment, location, ownership, and again I'm sure some other factors muddy the waters a bit. Understand that I am not against the idea, and in fact encourage any ideas that may help better MadCast. I just want to be clear that this type of decision is much more complicated than simply voting yes/no.
  3. Whats your PC setup like?

    They say hind sight is 20/20 😎
  4. Gaming Slump

    Life + lack of gaming interest is why I've been largely absent. I've logged maybe 10 hours of gaming this year where as I would regularly log 10 hours a day on a weekend.

  6. New Overwatch Patch!! 4/10/17

    This is overall a big QoL patch. While I love me some D.Va, she was a counter to too many characters. Hopefully this puts her back inline as a defensive tank who capitalizes on mistakes rather than the DPS tank she's been for the last several months. The Zen change is interesting to me. I didn't realize there was such a fuss about his burst damage. He's already in a tough spot with more and more mobility heroes picking on him. He relies greatly on getting his ult as quickly as possible. Perhaps that is the underlying cause of the nerf? Either way, I'm still going to play sniper battles with Widow and Hanzo as Zen. I'm not scared.
  7. Ready Player One

    I wasn't all too impressed with the execution of the plot. There was plenty to look at and I found myself constantly focusing on the outlying visuals rather than what was front and center (in this case that isn't a bad thing!). One thing is for certain though: Blizzard paid a pretty penny for all those cameos (Cheers love!)
  8. Mechanical Keyboard?

    I currently own 3 mech keebs. In general the most satisfying thing about a mech board is the tactile confirmation of a key compression. You don't get that feeling with rubber domes. There is a distinct feel when a mech key is pressed along with a satisfying click that confirms each stroke. It also allows you to create a customized experience. Switch type, color, back lights, RGB, keyboard size, artisan caps, etc. The possibilities are endless and it can become a bit of an addiction if you aren't careful. Head on over to /r/mechanicalkeyboards to get your learn on This is my main keeb: Vortex Poker II While LEDs Ducky Keycaps Cherry MX Blue switches O-ring silencers
  9. Wednesday Overwatch! 4/4/18

    Wednesday evenings are difficult for me but if I'm home I'll be here.

  12. .

    While i suspect your intentions were good, we're pretty firm on the rules here and like to keep our noses clean.
  13. Sea of Thieves

    I have a friend that told me about this just a couple hours ago. Sounds interesting.
  14. Fenix is the new Hero!

  15. what is your favorite role for overwatch

    Junkrat is (IMO) was the first hybrid character. He surely excels at Defense but he's long been my favorite poke hero and makes devastating offensive plays.
