  1. Came here, knowing nobody would have anything good to say about this sale. Was not disappointed. 😁
  2. Okay. Thanks. I own Barbary for Kontakt but I never received the code. I'll reach out to support. Update: Support was able to help me out.
  3. Ya. And no Beat at Pocketmags.😞
  4. The developer is not the most reliable. Apparently the software is really buggy and he promised updates last March that never materialized. He went AWOL for a long time and hasn't been heard on KVR since last June. Buyer beware.
  5. I am not sure if they are still doing this, but at one point, they banned all gmail addresses. So anyone using a gmail address was automatically deemed suspicious. As they say, it is nothing personal.
  6. I need another synth like I need holes in my tires. Oh well, I bought it anyway.
  7. Looks like the I9 blows the M1 out of the water, at least with multicore tests. I don't think I would want the I9 in my laptop though. But I also don't want an M1 laptop if it means going Apple.
  8. Somebody did it! The group buy is at the next level now.
  9. This is a super group buy! Highly recommended.
  10. I use the Vivaldi web browser. I didn't even notices the ads.
  11. Are you commenting on the amount of Larry's alcohol consumption? Not nice. 😉 Happy New Years to all, and I really mean that. I do hope 2022 will be a better year for us all. I didn't think it could get any worse than 2020 and then 2021 comes along. I pray it is not a trend. And thanks to Larry and all who not only bring us the best deals, but the best entertainment as well. This is truly a sanctuary in a crazy world.
  12. How did you people get access to the magazine? I didn't think it was available yet.
  13. You mean there is a topic? That's just your opinion.
  14. A man is convinced he is dead. His wife and kids are exasperated. They keep telling him he's not dead. But he continues to insist he's dead. They try telling him, "Look, you're not dead; you're walking and talking and breathing; how can you be dead?" But he continues to insist he is dead. The family finally takes him to a doctor. The doctor pulls out some medical books to demonstrate to the man that dead men do not bleed. After some time, the man admits that dead men do not bleed. The doctor then takes the man's hand and a needle and pokes the end of his finger. The man starts bleeding. He looks at his finger and says, "What do you know? DEAD MEN DO BLEED!"
  15. And you call yourself a deal monger???
  16. https://www.videocardbenchmark.net/compare/GeForce-GTX-560-Ti-vs-GeForce-GTX-660/18vs2152 The 660 is a bit faster than the 560 TI. Perhaps more memory too.
  17. Check your Arturia account. I only had the Arturia freebies, yet for some reason, Pigments was $69 for me. That puts in in pretty much no brainer territory.
  18. The Talos Principle is an incredible game. I couldn't believe it was created by the same people that did the Serious Sam series. It seems to be even cheaper now, $4.19 Canuck dollars.
  19. We lived in Laval, specifically Ste. Rose. I still remember skating on the Rivière-des-Mille-Îles.
  20. I was born in Edmonton. So glad my parents moved away when I was four...to Montreal. Maybe not as cold but certainly way more snow.
  21. Here on the Canadian west coast it has been -10 C (14 F for those temperature challenged people) with a wind chill factor of -10 C. Now I know everyone out there thinks Canada is the land of snow and ice, and that we ride around on dog sleds and live in igloos so this should be no big deal. But things are a bit different around here. Vancouver has had a white Christmas only three times in the last 20 years. When we had the winter Olympics in 2010, we actually had to manufacture snow for the local ski hills. The biggest problem with all this is not the cold; it is those idiots who don't know how to drive in snow.
  22. That's just your opinion.
  23. Happy birthday Larry. I can't believe the number of old farts around here. I realized I had hit that golden age when I bought something in a second hand store on seniors day and as I was walking out the store, realized I had been given the 20% discount. Full disclosure, I am 63.
