Fucking bank. They're like "activate your new credit card by tapping activate in the app." They don't tell you which hamburger menu hides the additional choices menu which hides the card status menu which hides the activate button.

Steam Deck

The steam deck seems like the ideal summer console. It plays well, and puts out very little heat. And every game now comes with a bonus game of screwing with the TDP and frame rate limits. (I actually do love that.)

It is expensive. Not just the system, but then I immediately had to buy a dozen more steam games, a cover, a case, some new headphones, a tiny keyboard, a kickstand. It all adds up. Or maybe that's just me.

Can confirm that some older games like Fallout 3 and Borderlands 2 run really well, and look about as good as they ever did. Maybe better, since FO3 textures don't scale up to 4k very well. I have a long list of games from that era that I never finished. I'm still about 100 hours short of finishing Witcher 3. Seems like a good way to get more value out of existing game collection. Everything ten years old is new again.

I got the OLED model, and would absolutely recommend it over the LCD. The price difference doesn't come close to compensating for the value. Running just a little bit cooler, the new CPU seems like a much better fit. I never hear the fan. I never used the previous steam deck, but I know fan noise was a common complaint.

Currently playing Mass Effect. It's still great, although I thought Ashley was hotter? Maybe I wasn't looking at her face 15 years ago.

The Star Trek tactical plan of having the bridge crew confirm every order three times in combat seems suboptimal.

"Captain, they're firing at us."
"Where?"
"They're targeting our weapons."
"Target their weapons back."
"Target locked."
"Fire."
"Firing!"
(Finally pushes button.)

Shouldn't they train for this? Adopt a shorthand battle language?
