nice to hear that it wasn't your coding that was bad, but AMD's :mrgreen: and that they've solved the issue. It must've really gotten under your skin

Oh man, this really makes me wish I could have gone out there! It looks like an awesome time and all the cool new games to demo would have been crazy, and of course the best part of meeting you guys in person. :D

Hopefully at the next event. I do seriously want that Factorio hoodie Klonan has though! I'll trade one my megabases for it.

Also happy the AMD issue was fixed and wasn't a fault on your end. Look forward to having you guys go to more future events. :)

It's for developers only, either become a dev or kill one. oh, nevermind.
It's valuable because it's exclusive.

I have too many t-shirts already as I moonlight as a roadie for: awesome workouts (load >20 trucks tell me you aint fit or dead), free concerts, and free t-shirts...

But I would gladly buy a hoodie. Black hoodies are my favorite casual clothing for half the year.

Why I deserve a hoodie: I am a dev! ... of restorative microbiology for the interface between terrestrial/aquatic ecosytems, and soil regeneration systems, and more... When the Factories have trashed the place, it's folk like me gonna save us.

Just humbly... :D

CPU bug


...so was it really a CPU bug that needs BIOS/microcode to fix, or was it just a chipset bug/issue?

Seems like it was a rousing success! Any hopes for another appearance, this time at PAX West? [Hint, hint, hint!] ;)

It's not because sheldon loves them that the script-writers love it too. those tv-companies charge extreme fees for product placement.

guess I'll have to lurk in big Multiplayer servers I've forgotten who but I do remember that at least one of the devs liked to drop in on those.

Either way it's AMD's fault.

Getting your own CPU bug is quite something. Congrats! You have unlocked a great achievement!

it's too late for us, save yourself!
Looking for people to play with! Not sure the ettiquette or things. Ideally, I'd like peeps that can play fairly often, and with voicechat.

There's a factorio pin? Where can I get one (other than flying thousands of miles to PAX)?
