great! I pretty much don't have time for single player games these days, unless they are bite sized arcady stuff to kill time.

News Comments > New AMD Drivers

1. Re: New AMD Drivers Jan 16, 2020, 17:33 bigspender
 
Some single display Radeon RX 5700 series graphics product system configurations may experience intermittent reboots when the system is left idle on desktop.

It's shit like this, that lets Nvidia get away with charging a premium for their graphics cards.

The 5700 series hardware is amazing, but the drivers are just garbage. In the grand scheme of things a crash/reboot every week or so isn't a big deal, especially now days with SSD's allowing for a 10 second reboot at most, but a black screen in the middle of a critical moment whether gaming or working is frustrating as all hell.

Still I've saved like $500 going with an AMD build.

The tech is OK, but the software hasn't gone much past the gimmick phase. But it is changing now, and hopefully this new HL game will set things in motion.

'Like sending bees to war'- the deadly truth behind your almond-milk obsession.

But sending bees to pollinate 160x that amount of crops to make dairy is totally fine right? Journalist love to forget that cows need to eat a shit ton of food.

Fuck are you talking about? You know cows, sheep, and goats eat grass, right?

Maybe in the wild, but dairy is from farms 98% of which are intensive farms. We're growing soy, grains etc to feed them. In fact something like 75% of all crops grown are fed to farm animals.

No grass here https://youtu.be/W7NEqjJZzwY?t=38

The FDA Announces Two More Antacid Recalls Due to Cancer Risk

Stop eating animal products and highly processed foods, and you'll never eat antacids again. ForksOverKnives.com

And coincidentally this lowers your cancer risks on top of not needing those antacids.

I'd like to thank whatever adult was in the room and managed to convince Trump to de-escalate something for the first time in his life instead of doubling and tripling and quadrupling down. I'm sure it was a Herculean effort.

I dunno, I feel like the one thing Trump is good at is starting conflicts, so it's kinda weird that he's failed at that too lol

Possibly the dumbest shit I've heard today, and is water down legitimate concerns about stereotyping.

There's a similar game on steam called Black Eater or something, but it looks more fun with focus on lots of players on the same ship. Not just 4 players.

Sunflower's $9,950 security drone aims to protect your home autonomously

I wonder if it can differentiate between the footsteps of a regular person and a crim. Dodgy people tend to walk with a certain stride, even when they aren't sneaking around.

Hell, this done might even be able to tell some one that they have various brain diseases depending on the gait. Although not sure if I'd want a drone telling me I have Parkinson's everytime I carry something heavy and do my heavy walk in the yard haha

How a country like Australia isn't already covered in solar panels is really beyond me though. That takes some special kind of malicious intent.

Hillsong church which the prime minister is part of is ready and eager for judgment day sadly.

LUL. Imagine using a 1080p monitor in 2020.

I do, daily. Six of them at 144Hz. 4K can blow me. It brings nothing to the table for my usage and, according to the latest Steam survey, nothing to the table for most gamers, either. 4K monitors represent less than 2% of the market.

ForgedReality wrote on Jan 6, 2020, 11:33:
And it's 24" why? That is way the fuck too small. 40" is the smallest I will go these days. I use a 55" 4k currently and it's blissful perfection. I'll take screen real estate over a few extra frames per second any day.

55"? Fuckin' pleb! At least sack up and buy a 75" 8K QLED like a REAL man would! /s

It's bringing plenty new. Problem currently is graphics bottleneck to drive a 4k display.

4k will be the norm once you can maintain over 60fps, which no single video card can do on most titles yet. The resolution is very nice of you have a 32" or larger screen.

For games where you want clarity and sharpness on distant objects, e.g. Space and flight sims, then 4k is amzing

If I had the horse power to push 360fps in 1080p I would absolutely be happier with a 4k resolution running at "only" 144hz / fps

Australia bushfires might burn for months, Morrison warns

It's been burning for months already because this twat is such a huge climate denier that he pretended that these fires were fine and normal, letting them go out of control.

I wouldn't be surprised if some small towns lynched him at his next photo op. I'm sure they would legally get away with it too, since these climate deniers are going to kill us all, so it's arguably self defense to end these scum.

I seem to remember sony claiming the same due to the processing power of the ps2 far outstripping what was available on the pc.

Unlikely. Plus, if there are cross platform games then these will be (drum roll) cross platform! PS only exclusives that are coded purely foe the PS will remain so.
Unless console makers are using fast storage as a cheap replacement for graphics memory (mentioned in a video blue recently linked) me thinks it's all a bunch of marketing baloney.

Balony, I agree, SSD will be only for streaming in art assets on the fly as all consoles have done since ps2 anyway.

'Wake-up call': Study suggests kids who drink whole milk may be leaner.


Oh come on, the sugar industry pulled the same shit a few years ago with diet coke and pepsi max etc People who are lean from other methods, don't worry about buying low fat, or sugar free products.

Just like the article says, it's a reverse causation: People are lean despite the whole fat milk, and the sugar drinks. NOT because of them.




P.S. there's a reason why dairy isn't on the Canadian food guidelines anymore. Humans are not cows.

There's added sugar in skim milk but not whole. And whole milk fat is good a good fat. And people of northern European ancestry need dairy because that's how we evolved. When we were stuck in doors several months a year we had to get our nutrition and Vitamin D from somewhere else - milk/cheese. It's why so many in the sun belt are lactose intolerant and we're vitamin D deficient. Milk and cheese are good for you. And butter is light years better than margarine. We are naturally deficient in several key vitamins and minerals that dairy provides.


If dairy is good for you why are countries removing it from thir guidelines?

Because it's not. The protein in it caesin causes cancer, the naturally occurring bovine hormones cause cancer, increase igf1 in the human body, and cause obesity. The saturated fat causes diabetes type 2, and now likely even type1 thru epigenetic means. And lastly the cholesterol causes heart disease. Cot death, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis and the list goes on.

The 1/2 of the world that doesn't drink or eat dairy is better for it.
