  • gene - Great. But a few flaws

    so there are alot of things i can say about the steam machine and im sorry if this post goes on forever but playing games like warthunder on max settings at 60fps bioshock infinite on high at 60fps shadow of mordor on high at 30fps racing simulators on high at 30-60 fps i have to say that this is one amazing little piece of hardware . theres almost no fan noise . no louder then the early model ps4 which can easily be drowned out with the game volume and there being great thermal performance . (stays decently cool no thermal throttling or whatnot ) how could you go wrong ? well there are a few ways . the os is not polished. its very buggy and still lacks alot of games . sometimes games wont quit so you will have to restart the system and that may end up bugging the leds and changing them back to the stock color (although not a big deal to change them back still bothers me) there are tons of games that would be amzaing on this system and i know that steam machines only launched late last year but there are still huge triple A titles missing. i would love to play COD on this thing . some times games arent completely optimized and are buggy or glichty (not the os fault but the ports being brought over to linux/steam os ) i find that often there is a lack of profiles for the controller and this console only works with the 360 and steam controller so that is a slight issue although remedied by being able to map controllers but i dont have a year to make a mapping for each game and games dont download when turning off the system it sometimes even resets downloads like you never even started them (so leave the console on) and the controller . it seems to have stopped but for a while every time i used the steam controller i would get the same notification that it was having trouble connecting even when it was working fine . so the os still needs to be ironed out even tho they are doing a good job of keeping it updated and supported . the reason i call it a console is cause thats what it is . or what its trying to be . and to be honest its doing a great job . i replaced my xbox one and ps4 with this because i never used them and i have to say in the few days ive had this steam machine its seen more use then both consoles have seen in the 2 years i had them . and to be honest im planning on useing it for along time until the eventual upgrade when newer and harder to run triple A games come to steam os like valve has been promising . ide also love to see games from other companys come to steam os . like maby if origin could work with valve to get battlefront on here (i know it probably wont happen but i can dream) one last complaint i have was i called alienware to try and fix a problem i was having with the "controller is having trouble connecting" issue and they told me they could not help me and i had to go thru valve -_- so obviously its a good thing i bought a warrenty thru gamestop cause dell and alienware are of no help if this thing ever does decide to explode . but as a now complete pc gamer this pc will never be leaving my family of pcs because it is a great little system that is always being improved upon and will only get better. especially if you have a more powerful pc this will be its "best friend"

  • Short-Term Practical AND Long-Term Directional - Short-Term Practical AND Long-Term Directional

    The 2001 version of WCIYP is logical, readable and immediately practical. The book provides tangible assistance to anyone trying to deal with either or both of the sometimes conflicting priorities of (1) 'What kind of work should I really be doing?' and (2) 'I need a job right now!', and it builds a bridge between the two. I found that completing the workbook (a separate purchase) was a useful and necessary part of the exercise.
