The guy is a Darwin award waiting to happen.

he's lying. he's just a selfish sociopath trying to increase his own popularity on social media. his camera buddy as much as admitted it. he didn't give a shit about the consequences.

Workers Try To Remove Icicle From Roof, Things Go Horribly Awry. Now it's Miller time.

One of the few acceptable uses of holding the camera in portrait mode.

the reasoning behind that video was so essentially russian it's ridiculous - why do it the safe way and remove each block of ice from the bottom up to prevent the reasonable possibility of a cascade failure when you can just say fuck it and knock the whole thing down at once. less work for you and who cares about the safety hazard.

Love this thread , also big pc audio nerd going back to the dark ages. For me it was as important as 3d graphics and I invested in components 50/50 split audio vs gfx. I had all the good ones, early SBs, Gravis Ultrasound, than godly A3D Vortex and Auzen X-fi's. Until fucking MS decided to nuke direct sound acceleration. Now the only way forward is out of the Pc case so to speak, usb dac/amp combo for headphones and digital out to a/v amp for speakers. Internal sound cards can't hold the candle to external gear.
Btw anyone here heard new Super X-fi gizmo ? They promise holy grail of headphone 3d sound again but I'm sceptical.

As someone who both owns and has tried several external SOUNDCARDS and internal ones, this fallacy that PCI-e is garbage doesn't hold water. All that matters is the amp, and the dac, that's it. PCI-e or USB doesn't make any difference if the pci-e one is properly shielded.

I know this goes against the popular grain that "you HAVE to have an external soundcard" nowadays, but it's bunk. I'm not an expert on many things, but audio is kinda my niche. What matters is the components. A Pci-e card can have better components than a USB external one, and vice versa.

ok tough guy, i'm sold. what's the best sound card to get for under $200?

IT guys can be nasty themselves. i remember the story of one who worked for an oil company i think. they fired him for some board room penny pinching reason, so before he left he encrypted their entire database and took the password with him. he didn't actually take anything physical so legally it was at best murky if he was responsible for anything. i think in the end they just coughed up some cash for the password.

I'd like to take a moment to thank the GOP for making me feel like I am one of the most hip people on the planet after seeing the nonsense about the video they "uncovered" of Rep. Ocasio-Cortez.

Women dancing in public! The world is coming to an end!

YouTube
CNN

when footloose has become reality, reality has officially jumped the shark. conservatives actually crying about someone dancing. kevin bacon is both laughing and crying at the same time.

doesn't warpig win like every year? there must be something beyond just general familiarity to picking winners. i was always pretty sure that any deeper than general football knowledge was just random chance at picking winners.

edit: now i'm curious what the deleted post was. who makes a new account to firstpost on a jan.2nd ootb?

HNY guys. Blue we all fall over ourselves to express our gratitude for your tireless work in bringing us gaming news, but I particularly also appreciate your positivity, your humanity, and your embrace of intellectuality in your ootb posts. you daily make us a full course meal of gaming news to sate our habits, with a hefty helping of helping us be better people on the side. you are a dam against the flood of ignorance that crests heartbreakingly high these days; so, simply, thank you, for not giving up on us. Happy new year Blue, and i hope in 2019 we can reverse the course of our trajectory.

The actual edge of our solar system is the Oort Cloud.

The following is from Bill Bryson's "A Short History of Nearly Everything" green txt is my contribution on traveling from the Sun to Pluto.
"Now, the other thing you will notice as we speed past Pluto is that we are speeding past Pluto. If you check your itinerary, you will see that this is a trip to the edge of our solar system, and Iím afraid weíre not there yet. Pluto maybe the last object marked on schoolroom charts, but the system doesnít end there.

In fact, it isnít even close to ending there.We wonít get to the solar systemís edge until we have passed through the Oort cloud, a vast celestial realm of drifting comets, and we wonít reach the Oort cloud for another ó Iím so sorry about this ó ten thousand years (if we are traveling in one of the fastest space ships we have). Far from marking the outer edge of the solar system, as those schoolroom maps so cavalierly imply, Pluto is barely one-fifty-thousandth of the way."
As I am so fond of repeating, "No Human Will Ever Leave Our Solar System".


sublight travel to proxima centauri is a remote possibility. never is a long time, and assuming we don't apocalypse ourselves, i think there will certainly be a future elon musk in, like, 1000 years who will go for it.

That should be an automatic towing to the local impound charged to the truck owner, with repeat offenses doubling the charge each time. Problem solved.

trumpist ignorance at its finest - let's shit on things that will save our planet in the long run and make a cleaner future for our children, cuz, conservatism! fuck you! yes i know some of them are just trolling, but i guarantee some of those fuckers are dead serious too. they'd rather cover the world in ash and smog than give an inch to green technology because teh scary left wants it! it must be evil!

i've always felt like will farrell's movies were on the precipice of being unredeemingly god awful. if you think about ricky bobby, or anchorman, if they weren't funny they'd be completely worthless. i guess holmes and watson is finally the end result of that nightmare scenario.

We skipped Christmas this year...and it was glorious! I could do this every year and die a happy man. I had a sandwich for dinner last night and pretty much just played X4 all day.

The only holiday thing I did was tell Mrs. Burrito "Merry Christmas" over our usual morning tea on the back porch. I am very much looking forward to not taking down a tree, not taking down outside decorations, and not taking down inside decorations. I will also enjoy not lugging all the damn boxes up in to the attic.

'Twas the night before Christmas and... I don't give a fuck eh burrito?

Steve King nearly makes Trump look sane. What you saw there is merely the tip of the iceberg of his stupidity.

the answer i WISH one of these tech dudes would give to king and his ilk;

'i'm not going to dignify that with a rational answer, because ignorant question deserve ignorant answers. what i will say is this - you ever heard of mccarthyism, you ignorant fuck stick? that's you right now, reviving the most shameful era in the history of american government because you've lost all sense of what it means to be american.'

I have similar backup issues with my wife, El Presidente. My one bit of free advice [often worth what it costs] is to have her set up a free Dropbox account [or OneDrive or Google] and have documents set up to autosave into it. That way they are backed up and *may* be accessible from work. If her office has tight security she can access documents from her phone app and email them to herself at work.

really strange that a word doc could just up and vanish like that since it autosaves every, like, 5 minutes by default. maybe if it was a new doc, but if it was weeks of work there should've been a file somewhere. no mention of it in the My Office documents list? or the Word recent docs list?

god i hope they find the email where Pai says 'let's use the fraudulent emails to justify taking it up the ass from big telecom so i can get paid after i leave this shitty government job.'

That comment carries even more weight coming from you. IIRC, you work for a big telecom.

moi? nope, i work for UPS.
