More cores, aren't most consumer apps single threaded.

Yes, but mostly due to code monkeys being lazy asses. Over the summer, we hosted a code camp where teenagers were in their 2nd, 3rd, or 4th year of Rust programming and the 3rd and, especially, the 4th year students were doing some amazing mulithreading work. We just need a new generation of code monkeys to accept something other than C as a viable language and that you should design multithread support in from the ground up.

Disney is funny in the weird way not the humorous way. They bitch and piss and moan about piracy but they do everything within their power to ensure that their content, be it shows. movies, or games, becomes pirated by being absolute dicks about availability.

Whether or not Tron: Evolution is a good game or not, the fact that they have now fucked over owners of legitimate copies just means that people who either own it or were interested in owning it will now go pirate it. Because that copy will work forever without DRM issues.

Did you forget where you're headed the next couple of years.

No, it;s just not now. I am becoming impatient because we're on that countdown before launching off the precipice.

And the stopover is Michigan while we wait for my immigration process to wind its way through the system. A much shorter move than Texas, certainly.

We went up over Thanksgiving to see friends and I received a job opportunity. Now it's just a waiting game.If all goes well, I may be moving up before Mrs.Burrito. Which is good but also would suck at the same time. Hard to have really good adventures without your adventure buddy.

My favorite was the teaser "You can reinstall from the cloud!" Yeah, like that's faster than a USB stick or that everyone has both a fast enough and stable enough broadband connection to do so. If they have broadband at all.

But it's Microsoft...they just can't stop fucking that chicken.

The only way to stop them is to severely overstep boundaries and not only lock their devices down but closely monitor them.

Not necessarily the "only way". Network level capture and monitoring would give you all the information you needed. Sure, they could resort to a VPN but you can block access to those IPs and/or namespaces at the network level as well. Pretty much any home router supports at least some of these features to some degree.

If you found objectionable traffic/content, sit down and have an actual face to face talk without resorting to emotional bullshit like being angry and yelling.

If you don't trust your kids, you have fucked up as a parent. Sure, they're going to make mistakes but you should expect them to and given them the opportunity to correct those mistakes. Moreover, you can't fight biology. No matter how much religious/"moral" bullshit you lade them down with, it will never overcome biology in a way that is psychologically healthy.

You didn't spend enough time with it.

<Shrug> Steam had one chance at a first impression and they blew it. The fact that you how you hold it is non-intuitive shows that it is a poor design.

You can like it, and that's great that you do, but that doesn't change my impression of it. At this point, however, it's moot anyway since it is now a dead product with no future so I shan't be revisiting it.

...it seems they had no money for decent sound effects or music.

So I have been playing it for about an hour now and I don't hear the same tinniness that the reviewer described. Since we don't know what his audio setup is, he could be playing on laptop speakers for all we know.

The audio is fine on my cans. Can't say much about the music as that is the first thing I disable in most games so I can play my own music selections.

A friend of mine has one from when they were released. I was less than impressed with it. It just felt...unsatisfying in my hands. It definitely did not feel like it had the same build quality as my Xbox 360 and Xbox One controllers.

Hey BoP, what is your spin on their PoP!_OS?

I'm going to be honest. I hate Ubuntu with a passion.

Because it tries too hard to be something (Windows 10) that it's not (Linux).

No, I don't care about how they have chosen to arrange the Desktop Environment. Unlike Windows, you can change and modify that entire thing as you see fit.

What I do not like is how Ubuntu lays out the system underneath. It doesn't make any reasonable sense at all. Moreover, I do not like how Canonical does updates and the lack of available packages compared to Manjaro or Fedora with RPM fusion enabled. I also dislike to get that same breadth of choice, you have to add a bunch of PPAs separately.

I wiped Pop_OS! off my new laptop and installed Manjaro which is working with all the functionality of the distro that shipped with it.

I'm going to be honest. I hate Ubuntu with a passion. I think it is a garbage distro. That being said, I think S76 did a good job of unfucking Ubuntu as best as could be expected.

One thing I really like is that all updates, firmware, drivers, OS and applications. come through the Pop_Shop which is really quite elegant.

If you don't hate Ubuntu as much as I do, then give it a shot. You might like it quite a bit.

I know, right? They'll be going out of business any day now. Any. Day.

Can it run Crysis?

With a RTX 2080, I should certainly hope so! Bucktooth

Picked up a new System76 laptop and a 1TB Samsung 970 EVO Pro nvme drive to go in to it. Oh, and an 8qt Instapot for my mom for Christmas. That's about the only deals I took advantage of.

So it looks like AMD is now destroying Intel in the HEDT segment. EPYC is doing well, too.

Intel is in deep shit and they've nothing in the quiver with which to answer.
