Holy crap was thanksgiving rough. So my wife and I get the flu pretty much on black friday (super glad I got a flu shot... I did...). My car goes into the shop on black friday. Comes back on black friday, but now has a new problem. I send it back to the dealership on Monday and they resolve that and give it back (still waiting on a part for another fix sometime). The other night my alarm system has a false fire alarm for pretty much no reason, which wakes up my wife that has the flu. Now, if this were to happen when I was not home and my security company couldn't reach me, the fire dept would come out and potentially break into my house in response to said BS alarm.
So, I call my security company and tear them a new one, while drugged up and enjoying the glorious flu. I have to follow up and tear them another new one today or tomorrow as their alarm system is pretty much trash and a huge PITA.
But today, after about a week, I'm finally feeling quite a bit better. Yesterday went the whole day without flu meds. Anyway, whinging aside, happy to be back.
In random boaz news, he moved into his new house on Monday and will likely reappear sometime soon. Cow reemerged briefly and will likely be popping in and out. We saw quite a bit more of Bryff recently - even having a girlfriend and all. And I've been playing some more with madcasters here and there (the last game we played I went afk due to that awesome fire alarm.... so huzzah).
quinn/mundo = super strong. The new champ is fun on arams and pretty much so so so poop elsewhere (tentacles pretty easy to dodge at currently implementation).
Oh - and DPI settings on mice. I started to tell karls about this them I bored myself. Short version is its worth it to increase your DPI on your mouse (depending on what you are set to). Muscle memory is really quick for this sort of thing, so you can typically get used to a new setting after a few games... in my experience. Doing this enables you to more precisely and more quickly click on things, which translates to greater control.
The longer version is I came across a some web based mouse trainer "game." I was on 800 DPI on my mouse, which was godly slow. The game pops up things you need to precisely click on (very small dots) and gives you a score based on how close you are (think OSU but with SUPER small things to click on). Anyway, I'm slow as FUG at 800 DPI and I noticed I was slow even not utilizing my full screen. Which meant that at 800 DPI, I'd do substantially worse if the small dots were further apart.
Anyway, my take away was higher DPI = faster mouse movements = faster to get from here to there on the screen = able to quickly and precisely click on things. Now, I'm only up to 1200 DPI now, but I'll likely increase that as I better.
Also, this makes me think that the smaller my field of vision, the faster I can click on things as well. Less precisely, but much faster to respond if my field of view gives me the info further back. That means playing in windowed mode with a small resolution would likely result in an improvement for me. I don't think I'm willing to do that, but I think I'm right.
