In an unrelated WTF, I'm trying to buy renew my FFXIV subscription (something about it scratches an itch I have every so often, and they just had a free-play period that got me back into it), and the "buy time" page doesn't have the prices for the different options listed (besides the discounts for 90 or 180 day subscription periods, there is a slightly cheaper but more limited option that restricts your number of characters). This is kind of an important thing to tell somebody that you are trying to get money from.

I have to go to a completely different page to get the pricing information. Bad form, SE. Bad form.

So, I tried to fire up a game for some evening fun, and it immediately crashed. Tried again, same deal. Look at the list of recent downloads, and sure enough, Steam had just updated it.

I get all ready to fire off an irate bug report, but first I decided to check what the log says, just in case. Hmm... It is failing to create a DX11 context, so it falls back to DX9 but that fails too. Odd. Very odd.

On a hunch I try another game, and it crashes too, although it complains my graphics card does not support OpenGL 2.1 (which is absolutely ridiculous).

By this point warning bells are going off, so I check GeForce Experience, and sure enough: It is offering to install the drivers I had just installed yesterday. Apparently driver installation failed silently yesterday (after successfully uninstalling my current drivers), and when I started Experience today, it realized I didn't have any drivers installed at all and offered to install the ones I had downloaded last.

I'm still getting some persistent emails. Ignoring them doesn't seem to be helping. I got two just today.
You okay? Are the emails threatening?

I mentioned before, but someone's trying to get me to sell 3d models on some site. They're just oddly persistent, given how many other people there are to pester.

Came here to drop a thought, wondering why people keep downloading my mediocre models. Someone's persistently emailing me to sell them on some site.

Your email provider almost certainly has a way to filter those out.

I'd just flag them as junk, possibly auto-send to junkmail, if they're that annoying.

It is scientifically proven that workdays run at 0.5 times the normal passage of time. But it could very possibly it could be a bit of burnout. So keep that in mind.
