I still probably wouldn't reccomend it for Rocket League, as that's very much a game where every millisecond counts. It would be playable but you would still notice. But it's working great for me on games like Asassins Creed and Skyrim. Slower paced stuff.

Apparently Google are launching there own game streaming product in a few weeks and it's supposedly got much lower latency than all the competitors too.
In my case I'm referring to in home streaming. It's just not quick enough for RL.

Oh right. To be honest when I tried in home it seemed laggier than over the internet somehow.

It's a tech I think is cool but not quite ready for prime time yet. But probably will be in 5 years. I will never give up my PC because it's always going to offer the best experience. But if I can stream at 80% the same quality for $10 a month or something while i'm at work or my dads house, then cool.

Halo MCC coming to PC and Steam, DX12 on Windows 7, Xbox Live coming to Switch, and PC streaming to Xbox. Microsoft is making some big waves over there.

XBL also coming to iOS and Android

And apparently they are testing out deploying Windows 10 games via Xbox Live servers and even the files are in Xbox format apparently.

hmm.jpeg

If Microsoft let me play Xbox games on Win 10 PC. I guess that would be awesome.

You know what's ****ing annoying. When there is no info about something you want to buy. I am super interested in seeing the Asus PA32UCX. But they have gone completely cold since the CES announcement. It's really agravating when the internet typically returns you 1000 pages of content to read on most products.

So. I've done rollouts of 1000+ devices several times for the past two companies using various MDM suites. AirWatch, Intune, MaaS 360. I've always done it by myself from scratch, and I feel very clued up on it. So I figure, hey, I wonder if people do this full time as their only job.

Found multiple 6 to 12 months contracts in London paying equivalent of 80k to 100k a year for people with start to finish experience of MDM.

mfw

Well, suffice to say I sent my CV off immediately.

Just had a whole week of training, and then a 4.5hr exam. Absolutely exhausting. Required pass mark of 80%.

Got 79%. At least the other two guys got 78% and 59% so I'm Queen of the Failures xD

Doing my second attempt on Sunday.

What's the exam ?

This gives me memories of my IT Apprenticeship. Sat in a training room learning the most boring IT **** ever, followed by laborious crappy exams. I hated it so much. Looking back, they were pretty easy exams as you'd expect. But it seemed crap at the time.

I was out of town basically all week for work, got home Thursday night. I ended up driving 1500 miles from Monday morning until I got home Thursday night. I worked with the Kentucky tech to upgrade nine stores to the newer credit card readers as their old ones were no longer PCI compliant. The locations ranged from Steele, Missouri to Central City, Kentucky.

My wife had an interview for a job this past Tuesday. She said that the interview went very well, and that they took her out and introduced her to several people at the facility which seemed weird to her. I told her that she must have impressed them. The place called her Wednesday and offered her the position. My wife told them that she actually wanted more money than the max that they were offering they said that they would give her the max and re-evaluate it in 90 days. She accepted and asked when they wanted her to start and was told that Thursday. So she interviewed on Tuesday, was offered the job on Wednesday, and started on Thursday. She put in two days at her new job this week after being out of work since December 12.
