    What are you currently reading?

    This is the first I've heard about it (admittedly, I haven't visited the forums in close to a year)... Where can we get it? Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    Raspberry Pi

    I got to thinking after I posted this that if worse came to worse I could always just set up a few different SD cards and swap them out for what I want to do. Was hoping to do all that without that hassle though. Lol Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    What are you currently reading?

    Right now I'm reading Daggerspell, the 2nd book of Katherine Kerr's Deverry Saga, when I have the chance to read a hard copy. When I'm reading in bed on the phone I'm currently reading Landsend Plateau, the 2nd book in Eric T. Knight's Immortality and Chaos series. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

    Raspberry Pi

    Hey guys, was at a friend's house the other day playing some of the Jackbox games (really fun!) and he was talking about how he was using a Steam Link to stream/cast his pc to his tv (they're across the house from each other) and one of his other friends mentioned that his Walmart store was selling them for a couple bucks. Got the wife and I talking that some way to stream/cast from my pc to our tv would be nice, as we have some of the Jackbox bundles, as well. Long story short, my wife and I haven't been able to find any on Walmart's online store or in-store... and their price keeps skyrocketing on Amazon. We looked at Chromecast, but I've heard it's really not that good for streaming your games like that. So I started looking at maybe Raspberry Pi as a solution. I think I found what looks like a viable way to do it (installing a program called Parsec on the pi and on my pc). The only problem is that the wife would like to be able to use it to cast from our phones to the tv, as well. On top of that, I figured I may as well go for broke and see if I can set it up to stream YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, Twitch, etc while I'm at it, if I can. Unfortunately, from my brief attempts to look up how to do so tonight it seems like each of the different devices/services to stream may be made possible by taking different paths which may not be compatible with each other. Is that the case? Am I just tired after work and misunderstanding stuff? Or do any of you guys know a way to set it up to allow me to stream from my pc, cast from my phone, and use the streaming services (the streaming services are the least important - I can do the streaming through Comcast and/or my ps4 if I have to)? I'd much rather spend about the money to set up a raspberry pi to do a bunch of crap, be able to customize what it does, and do it well then to spend the same on a Chromecast that may not be a great solution for what I want to do.

    Conan Exiles

    I see this is a year old thread but figured I'd ask if any of you guys still messed around on the game. My brother just got me into it and I'm really enjoying it.

    Site Update: Questions or Comments

    Haven't been on the forums in quite some time but I seem to be getting an error when I'm trying to connect with Tapatalk in the last few days. Server error '256 or some such. Any ideas?

    @dadshideout.com email

    Sorry, another question: Any idea why my phone client won't update with emails any newer than last December? My last phone did it and I just set up the account today on my new phone and it's doing it there, also.

    @dadshideout.com email

    My email app on my phone apparently stopped pulling from my dho email back in December. My computer is down at the moment so I'm borrowing one from my brother. So I was wondering, how do I find the site for the email again? Lol

    7 Days to Die

    I've had the game for a couple years now and my interest in it waxes and wanes, usually due to changes they make to it lol. Maybe I'll pop in at some point. It's been a while since I've played and it couldn't hurt to see how the game is looking at this point (I'm the same way with ARK: Survival Evolved, as well).

    Annoying prompt

    Thanks, Mykk! That did it. I was using the skin that the thread you linked to was about.Guess that shows how much I've visited the site lately :( . I scanned my computer for no reason. Then again, it's been far too long since I initiated any scans myself, so maybe it was just the kick in the rear that I needed. lol

    Annoying prompt

    Yeah I was about to head to bed when I posted about it so I didn't do anything last night. The odd thing about it is that this site is the only place where I'm getting that prompt. I also just ran CCleaner and still getting it... so on to the AV now...yay...

    Game of Thrones - Season 7 ***SPOILERS***

    While I see a lot of disappointment on the interwebs with this season so far, I'm loving it. It's definitely setting up some big moments to come in the next couple weeks. This season has really brought it so far! Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  13. So if anyone is interested and didn't know, Humble Bundle's current book bundle is a host of Unreal Engine and Unity 5 eBooks. https://www.humblebundle.com/books/unreal-unity5-book-bundle Now for my question. For anyone that may already being doing things in Unreal and Unity, what is the software used, and do you have to pay for it? While I could just get the first group and only pay $1, I'd rather know if I'll actually be able to make use of the books before buying them. If the software is paid/expensive I'd probably end up having to pass on it.

    Annoying prompt

    So I keep having this annoying come up every time I go to a new page of the site/forums: I know that it obviously isn't legit so all I'm doing is cancelling it. The question is, is anyone else getting it or just me (aka I need to run some anti-malware)?

    Dads playing Mass Effect: Andromeda

    Definitely getting it on pc if/when I get it. Controller just seemed too awkward for me. Now that people have gotten a chance to get past first impressions and really get into the game,what do you guys think? I know when you look online there's lots of negativity. I would like to hear more reasonable thoughts on the game. Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
