Dangit, I gotta change my depends after reading about that x570 mb, it's gonna look sweat on my RGB desk with my RGB coffee cup and RGB stapler.

Pffft, noob. You need an RGB trimmed monitor, RGB pen holder, RGB pencil sharpner, RGB paperclip holder, RGB tape dispenser, and RGB printer.

No, you don't understand. Cops are all magically heroes who deserve all the ass kissing, fawning, and dick sucking they get because...reasons. They're heroes, goddamnit! That's all you need to know.

Jesus, why the fuck can't you get with the program? Civil liberties, civil rights, accountability, and due process are bullshit socialist propaganda.

Nikola is probably rolling over so hard in his grave that he has finally achieved his dream of wireless power.

As long as your name isn't Tesla Edison all is fine I think.

And yet, I would bet that at least one set of parents did.

I got a question for you since you are still in charge of my next system build.
I mainly game and I won't be replacing it for 5 years, do I want an 8c/16t at 4.8ghz or a 12c/24t at 4.4ghz.
I've come to the realization that any future CPU upgrades will also require a mb change, your ideas.
Please use as many crystal balls as you need.

No pressure!

OK, so you mainly game. What else do you do with your machine besides gaming or while you are gaming? For example, I might generally have a movie or a TV show playing on one my side monitors or some other task running in the background while I am gaming. So, for me, I'm going to pick the 12C out of the two processors you mentioned. This gives me headroom just in case. Now, to be fair, not too many games are truly mulithreaded yet to the point where they are going to truly saturate an 8C but you said a five year service life so that may change in the future with both the PS and Xbox next-gen consoles being 8C units. So I would still recommend the 12C proc for future-proofing and headroom for today's usage.

As for your motherboard, I'd see if ASRock kicks out a X570 Taichi Ultimate Board at Computex to stay current with the new 3000 CPUs to serve as their flagship AM4 board. I've never had a bad ASRock board and while they are not as flashy as some of the boards from Asus, Gigabyte, and others...they have been incredibly solid and reliable. They're also pretty quick with BIOS/UEFI updates and generally tend to add features during those updates. For example, this machine I am on right now had X Sky Boost for OCing, then Intel pitched a fit because it also allowed OCing Xeons so they, ASRock, removed it in a BIOS update. Then ASRock said "Fuck it" and re-implemented it back plus added memory OCing in a later BIOS update. I would expect that the Ultimate board will have at least two NVMe sockets so you'd be set there, too, if you wanted to migrate from SATA based SSDs to NVMe either during the initial build or afterwards.

I would've thought all the liberals that post here would relish the govt. stepping in once more and telling them how to protect their kids and what to do in lieu of common sense. That is your thing right?

I don't know what anyone else's "thing" is, but my "thing" is shoving my booted foot way up the ass of morons who paint in broad brushes while using straw man arguments and thinly veiled pejoratives. It is my hope, although sometimes in vain, that in doing so, I will cure those types of people of recto-cranial inversion syndrome.

Windows, becoming more like Linux every day. In the future, "Windows" will be nothing more than a set of APIs and a DE over the top of a Linux kernel.

If your 67 year old mother, took a Windows laptop or a OS-less laptop and installed a functional Linux system and uses it without any problems, then I would gladly hail her as far more computer savvy than I am, despite the fact I made my living in the IT industry since 1988.

By your measure, she is more savvy than you. She swapped herself from Mint to Manjaro without my assistance while also managing to keep her existing home partition fully intact.

Giving her a laptop without an OS or Windows on it and telling her "Go install your preferred Linux distro" is as much of a challenge to her as baking a pone of cornbread these days. Linux is truly that easy now.

12. Bike lanes need physical protection from car traffic, study shows. May 4, 2019, 13:58 Burrito of Peace
 
Or, you know, you could stop trying to force fucking pointless bike lanes on to roads that were already barely wide enough to allow two vehicles on in the first place.

Or, you could create bike lanes that were entirely and physically separate from the roadway.

But, no, clearly it's all the fault of motorists and not boneheaded "planners".

Thanks to GPU passthru its actually a pretty viable solution for gaming too.

This, so much fucking this. Fuck Windows as a primary OS. It. Is. Garbage. Features that Microsoft is touting as "new" have been in other, better OSes for, in some cases, more than a decade.

However, if GPU passthrough seems impossible, then check out Proton. Steam has it available by default on Linux. If you don't use Steam, you can also use Lutris+Proton which is stupidly easy to setup.

If you choose to stick with Windows, then you reap what you sow. I know I pimp Linux hard but it is easier now than at any point in history to transition over. Getting things done no longer requires you to ever touch the command line. My 67 year old mother uses Linux daily.

Are you really going to tell me that my 67 year old mother has better tech skills than you? If you're going to say "But BoP, I bet she only reads emails and uses the web", she would laugh at you. I would laugh at you. Your own mother would laugh at you. Right now, she's preserving, enhancing, and archiving some ancient audio recordings that were done on first gen reel to reel tapes from the 40s. Previous to that, she was working with vinyl from the 20s. All on her Linux based laptop.

News Comments > Landinar: Into the Void Released
2. Re: Landinar: Into the Void Released May 2, 2019, 09:15 Burrito of Peace
 
I bought the game because this seemed up my alley. Build my own ship, pilot through a galaxy Privateer style, take contracts when I need cash, and generally wander around the universe as I see fit.

On the whole, it does do all those things. It's a fun game for $16USD. However, it's not quite a seamless experience yet. There are some odd little bugs (like some folks are reporting that after a while, the game stops responding to keyboard input but that is not an issue I have experienced myself) and glitches but the dev appears to be very involved with the community and quick to own up to issues and work on fixing them rapidly.

Would I recommend it? For $16 bucks, yeah, I probably would with the caveat that you understand you're buying a game from a small indie who has exactly one previous title, Convoy, under his belt.

2. Systemd invasion into Linux Server space. May 2, 2019, 06:40 Burrito of Peace
 
Gah, that article is so full of shit and FUD it goes beyond hyperbole. The second sentence in sets the tone for how wildly inaccurate it is. I am a Linux sysadmin and, in all the conferences, meetups, working groups and the like that I have been to, I've met a grand total of two people who really bitched about systemd. The rest of us either don't mind systemd or rather like it.

It's just the inane ranting of some neckbearded grognard who has let their skills lapse and now feels left behind.

Advertisers don't get that. Google knows you're a person, but doesn't care who you are. They know you're a person that lives in XYZ state, and recently searched "mountain bikes." Huffy wants to advertise to people currently interested in buying mountain bikes, so it tells Google to display its ad to anyone that's recently searched it. Google doesn't go "Well, Burrito of Peace likes mountain bikes, here's his info," it just sends the ad to however many thousands of people Huffy paid them to, within that bracket.

At what point in my reply did I ever state it was solely about advertising? I did not. Profiles are not just advertising. They're built for swaying purchasing decisions, sure, but they're also used to sway political voting, personal opinions, information gathering to target specific people and groups, and many other activities. This is a larger issue than just advertising. I can use data analytics on my own users to get a fair view of their beliefs and opinions and then use that data to manipulate them for my own purposes.

the fleeting reliability of seagate

Don't I know it. I just had to swap out the last four remaining Seagates out of my primary NAS because they all decided to go tits up at the same time. The HGST drives in the array on the other hand, still reliable and hassle free.

Swapped the Seagates for HGSTs and let the array resync.
