NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 and Game Ready Driver available today
NVIDIA shared the exciting news that its GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card “powered by the new ultra-efficient” Ada Lovelace and 3rd generation RTX architecture is available starting today. For those looking to unlock the “full potential” of the RTX 4090, NVIDIA notes in its announcement post that you’ll need to download the company’s new Game Ready Driver.
You can do this through the “Drivers” tab in GeForce Experience, with the Game Ready Driver available for both Windows 10 and Windows 11 computers. Not only can the Game Ready Driver benefit the RTX 4090, it can also improve the performance of previous-generation RTX cards thanks to new DirectX 12 optimizations.

but babe this is my emotional support pile of stuff next to my bed— Adamned Cerious (@Browtweaten) October 7, 2022
That's my emotional support row of half empty water bottles, stack of journals in various stages of being written in, books I'm never going to finish, pens, etc...

Parents, please be careful this Halloween. In my kids candy I found a copy of the critically acclaimed MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV.

Accidentally triggering story progression in a video game before having a chance to finish exploring an area & not being able to go back you to see if there were any collectibles pic.twitter.com/cQE9pIIOD3— cσσkíє 🎮 infamous 2 ⚡ (@ArcanaLegacy) October 11, 2022
I do this far too often.
If no one's going to stop me I might as well share a few more starting with this random track Spotify recommended to me that I ended up falling in love with.
The new Lamb of God album is very, very good!
A fun song I keep returning to again and again.
This song never fails to punch me in the gut and make me misty-eyed, but I love it just the same. It's heartbreakingly beautiful.

"Pile of emotional support stuff" is too true. Getting rid of that tendency has been a real victory in my adult life.
Wait. You got rid of it?
