2. Green Power Jan 30, 2008, 19:40 UnderLord
 
I'm sure the U.S. electricity authorities would happily sell everyone 100% Green Power (for the good of the planet, of course).
Well, the all but useless 'Certificates' anyway, since I'll safely bet that there isn't much actual Green Power around.
Probably not even enough to run Intel alone if Dans' insights on the Green Power situation in Australia are any guide:-

1. AMD Breaks Teraflop Barrier... Jan 30, 2008, 19:32 UnderLord
 
"AMD Breaks Teraflop Barrier with Graphics Chip"
Nice headline, too bad they actually break it with TWO graphics chips.
SLI on a single board is still SLI, nice try though marketdroids!

So, as long as the terrorists don't make exploding cats, the vaunted airline baggage screening security is really safe eh?

I just can't understand it.
If the problem is that the people who script the shows are on strike, why don't they just make more 'Reality TV' programs?

8. Re: LOL and more Jan 7, 2008, 14:58 UnderLord
 
Just saying "(A must in my book)" doesn't actually make 1280x1024,4xAA,8xAF Low Settings so that you can moan at not achieving decent performance at those settings, imo.
I hope the foot gets better soon.

I thought the mention of 20 and 40 core Intel chips was interesting, other than the non-x86 80 core demo we all know about (right?), this sounds suspiciously like a slip of priveleged info' to me.
I mean, they may have mentioned it as a future possibility, but for Mark to mention it suggests it was pitched to him as more imminent than 'one day'.
(Or I could just be wishing! ;-)

Typo and clarify

17. broadcasters leeway Jan 2, 2008, 23:01 UnderLord
 
I think folk are in for a shock regarding broadcasters leeway, once the old analogue bandwidth is irrevocably flogged off.
So far they have been sending high bit-rate content, but they can always send more channels of low bit-rate content instead.
You can imagine their eyes lighting up at the though of more channels of advertising revenue.
I have caught the local TV networks trying it on with crappy lego-vision low bit-rate content during Kids TV time, very ugly!
Sod giving the broadcasters MORE leeway, what we want is a guaranteed quality of content that they may not go below.

16. Human Head Jan 2, 2008, 22:56 UnderLord
 
The whole point of the human head demo is to show handling sub-surface light scattering of realisticaly simulated human skin.
You've never seen a hot blonde without make-up, though you might think you have if it's well applied ;-)

1. Chili Mouth Dec 30, 2007, 19:48 UnderLord
 
Capsaicin, the stuff that makes chillies hot, is fat soluble, which is why water won't help (or Beer, but that shouldn't stop you trying ;-)
Most Dairy stuff like Milk or Sour Cream will get it off of your tongue / palate.
Hence this rather nice accompaniment to Indian Curries - "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raita_(condiment)"
Cheers and many thanks for the recipe, Blue. Have a great New Years Eve.

A great idea, mostly. Unless you type real funny, the keyboard would be a pain to watch video on, and it'd be covered in fingerprints as well.
To be able to switch to gaming mode with no darned 'Widows' key and alt-tab etc' disabled would be great, plus all your shortcuts for weapon/ammo etc for each game, Lovely!
In fact, it would be the end of localised keyboards completely, dollars, pounds, layout, big 'Enter' keys or 'Backspace' keys etc', all completely customisable.
Oh yes, I think this HAS to happen!

5. Altered Corn Dec 26, 2007, 16:02 UnderLord
 
So the USA has plants altered to kill insects (I doubt they'd stop at just Corn) and Europe deosn't.
Next thing you know the US is going "What's killing all the bees?"
Uh huh!

News Comments > NVIDIA Vista Drivers
13. my only Vista problem... Dec 21, 2007, 23:45 UnderLord
 
Is that every time I install new WHQL-certified Nvidia drivers it messes up the arrangement of my desktop icons.
Presumably due to going through a lowest-common-denominator 640x480 VGA mode during changeover.
How hard could it possibly be to find out where icons were and restore them, they get the display mode right.
I'm getting totally sick of it, this shit passes MS quality checks?
Does this happen to any other 8800GTS + 32-bit Vista users?

(edited for more info', and typo's fixed, I hope!)

Technically better, but proprietary and royalty based.

15. Alice movie Dec 11, 2007, 13:27 UnderLord
 
I guess we can trust Tim Burton to do a decent job of it.
Still, I expect most visitors to this site would rather see McGees' Alice as the starting point, though that would be a much harder undertaking.
