Keep saying it Burrito....

As you wish...

USE LINUX!


Seriously, at this point if you are using Windows 10 you fall in to one of three categories:

  • You're lazy

  • You're ignorant

  • You're a masochist


  • "But...but...muh gamezuh" is not, and should not, be an excuse for continuing to use a platform that abuses you. Moreover, you should feel, and demand, that you wholly own your machine and have direct, godlike control over everything that goes on in it and how it operates. If you opened process viewer, could you identify every running process and what it is doing? Why not?

    Use an OS that respects you, your privacy, your autonomy, and your hardware.

    Yeah, I watched that earlier in the day. It's really haunting especially if you know the story of the Grayback.

    Jesus, that's an unimpressive CPU at that price point.

    The 3900X is a better overall value plus it has PCIe 4.0, is not a short term product, and has a promised long socket life ahead of it.

    Garriott has been a has-been since Ultima 8. As a former NCsoft employee, Tabula Rasa was a very clear indication that the man no longer had what it took to put out a AAA game. The development story of that game was a bright, flashing, neon sign warning of extreme danger about his ability to put out a decent game.

    So all of my previous gripes were fixed but one:

    When I hover my mouse over either the "Preview Comment" or "Post Comment" button, the button turns dark blue with black text. If this is intentional, cool, I'll stop reporting it as a bug but the old site did not do that.

    Honestly Blues, the new look sucks! everything is bigger and the text looks off.

    Hardware, OS with version, and browser with version, please.

    I agree...the site looks off. The left side bars are massive with lots of dead space. Story titles are a third again larger than the commentary by Blue and the yellow quoted text is about half the size of the titles. I expect dead space in the top bar and on the right as that is where ads would normally go. Also, when I hover my mouse over either "Preview Comment" or "Post Comment", the buttons go to the dark blue of the background with black text, making them unreadable.

    The only thing overclocking results show is that chip makers are shipping chips with no extra free speed. They could have done the same with the 300a Celeron and it would have been a 450 instead.

    I think the days of overclocking as a means of truly tremendous speed gains is long over*. We're not really CPU bound any more. If anything, what we need is tremendous improvements in mulithreading. What's the point of a 4.5Ghz+ 8 core processor when 7 of the cores are sitting idle or near idle? Rust, as a language, shows that it doesn't have to be as brutally painful and pyrrhic as C is.

    *Cue the "I gots 10 more FPS by overclocking" crowers.

    News Comments > Steam Cloud Gaming Plans?

    If cloud streaming becomes the only way to game, then I'll be done with gaming. This wet pipe dream of publishers fails to take in to account the hundreds of millions, if not billions, of gamers with shitty or non-existent connections. Still, that is a demographic they have largely written off anyway since disc based games are all but extinct.

    There is no gray area when it comes to fighting for your own liberty, for fighting against censorship, oppression, rampant police brutality, and wholesale murder of civilians by the state. There is zero wiggle room here for which side of the line is the right one to be on.

    I have been running the Fedora 31 beta at home due to needing Mesa 19.2 for my 5700XT. It was flawless and fast as Hell. Upgraded from Fedora 30 to 31 at work yesterday. The upgrade was smooth and troublefree. It's actually a fair bit faster than 30, too. Boot times dropped from around 7 seconds to 3. Apps launch faster, too. The upgrade also seamlessly transitioned me from RPMFusion's repos from 30 to 31.
