Boosting efficiency... that made me laugh Do they mean undervolting the cards so they don't hit their thermal ceiling instantly?

(I am asking honestly, I haven't followed AMD GPU's this month, election was more important ;P)

Yep, and word is, Chesko himself is making this mod. This whole creation club nonsense is just weird.

Was never updated for the 64bit version, because SKSE doesn't work in 64bit.. mhh, makes you wonder doesn't it...

So that Dyson electric car, will it street sweep too?

ON a more serious note, it's a shame they didn't lobby harder to have their diesel particulate capture tech to be made mandatory. How many deaths would that have avoided...

It's mandatory now in the EU though... well, for diesel cars that come out post 2017 anyway. The problem is this tech stops working at low temperatures. And in Germany, we have 50% of the year low temperatures.

On the plus side, all German car makers will be offering full electric versions of all models shortly, so there's that.

But definitely not because they want to, there is a real threat our courts make the laws this time around, cities HAVE to protect their inhabitants, and that means bans for diesel cars/trucks on certain roads are not just looming, they are coming. Especially as it seems that our elections left us with no functioning government until way into November. (Which is a good thing, obviously)


I mean, maybe 10% this, but 90% China is mandating it, and what China wants goes, because that's where cars are sold.

But maybe not German cars, China would be pretty daft to not push this advantage

160 terabits per second for Netflix streaming..

Interestingly enough, I tried to look up how much bandwidth Netflix uses and couldn't find it.. yet could find bullshit articles that say they use 37% of all downstream internet but nothing to quantify how much that is...

To give you an idea, 6T is the max daily usage in Germany, 600G in Japan... 160T cable would be serving entire European continent.
(that's per second) T =tbit/s , G = gbit/s

More importantly, it would beef up the lackluster US cix connection speeds, tremendously, actually. This cable improves interconnect speeds and will likely fix a lot of bandwidth problems.

Time to do Freespace 3 eh? Haven't we waited enough already?

Uh, when THQ went down, the IP went from Volition to Interplay, and the "auction" that happened later on was bundled, and nobody apparently won the bid for Interplays IP.

So neither Deep Silver nor Volition own the Freespace IP

I have to rate the first 2 shows higher then the last star trek movie. It was pretty good IMO, can't wait to see more. I am a little disheartened after reading the wiki as it is apparently NOT intended to go on for more then a few seasons, after a couple of story arcs they will jump to a new ship and crew and time period (if the show is still going on of course).

Really? I think that the last Star Trek movie was more Trek than the first two reboot movies by far.

About Discovery: only the first two episodes of Star Trek: Voyager were weaker first episodes of a Trek series up to now. Discovery needs to improve quite a bit to stay for the usual seven seasons.

Technically what we saw was part 1 and part 2 of the pilot.. I hope this series isn't gonna FOCUS on the Klingon conflict....

Hob looks pretty good! Reminds me of Bastion, but more puzzly.

Great little game for sitting on the couch with a controller.

As long as you don't do that via steamlink, which causes it to crash.. seems to be a pretty rough launch (Also I had no idea Ogre engine still even exists)

Re: The Star Trek transporter.

There's no problem because "continuity of consciousness" is an illusion created by our memory. We only remember the past in so far as our memories recall them for us. These memories are inaccurate and often change.

The debate necessitates the existence of some magical nonsense like a soul. Something separate from your body which can become detached when you are transported. If all you are is your body, then you aren't dying anymore than a toaster that's been taken apart and put back together properly. Both still work the same as they did before.

How do you account for identical twins then? Your twin is not you, even though you have the same genetics.

Twins may look similar because of shared genetics, but they aren't a single organism. Twins are no harder to account for than two of the same model of toaster. The illusion of continuity depends on the contents of memory, which in turn depends on the biological construction of the brain, and twins don't share that.
But that's exactly my point: if you deconstruct something or someone, then reconstruct it or them, is it original or a clone/copy? A twin or clone has your exact makeup, but they aren't you. If you teleport Star Trek style, will you still be looking through your eyes?

You will be conscious throughout and "experience" the actual teleport too, which leaves some interesting ethical and psychological questions though.... that's at least how Star Trek showed it. If we go by how the EXPLAINED it then you are literally entering a suicide box. But I guess nobody at Star Trek writer staff thought about the implications, they just thought it'd be a cool tech to have. I would still prefer teleporters to NOT be a thing though.

So the teleporter literally transfers your consciousness into a digital buffer, probably with a digital facsimile body, and then transfers you back over 1:1 wherever it is you need to go. Apparently this is pretty quick so you don't have time to feel like the Doctor on the Voyager... except when the teleport fails.

Let's ignore the fact that this is an absolutely dumb way to travel if you can separate consciousness from meat-body.. Ghost in the Shell showed what is possible. You teleport a puppet body or biological avatar and "assume direct control" and you are basically immortal through that.

Oh man, how I would love a Ghost in the Shell inspired Star Trek....

Anyone watch Star Trek Discovery?

Yep, seems like a good start, but no idea where it's going

I liked it, generally good writing and so far intrigued by the plot/promise of action. Though because of a football game going long I get the feeling parts of it may have been cut. It certainly ended abruptly, it went to commercial, and when “it” resumed “it” was NCIS. There was one event that seemed to be motivated by very flimsy rationale. [SPOILERS] When she goes EVA because they don’t have shuttle craft, or ones that are as maneuverable as a space suit, I got the sense it was only done for the purpose of being cool. Also a little worried the main character might be too much of a Mary Sue. More [SPOILERS] Also I’m assuming that was the last episode for the main character since she assaulted the captain and attempted to commandeer the ship. She’ll be thrown out the air lock for treason right before the Klingons kill everyone right?

Yeah you are definitely missing an entire part of the 2nd episode there.... Spoilers if you are curious
The Klingons don't kill everyone, they use a torpedo warhead attached to a dead Klingon to detonate that thing close to the big ship, that cripples the big ship, they (captain and first) teleport over with the plan to capture the Kligon chief, but that goes haywire, Captain dies in combat and 1st is teleported out.

She is courtmartialed to lifelong imprisonment, but the captain (who I think is gonna be awesome ,p) of the titular ship "USS Discovery" picks her out and transfers her to his crew (why we don't know yet, but it's probably something to do with her heritage and the ship itself, which seems to be a pretty big vessel)


So yeah. What a shitty thing by CBS to do. And yes, that means the 1st is literally serving time on the Discovery. So it's not a thing she could have refused

I wonder this too... but I guess when I go 4k with a 1080TI (once the price drops more) this becomes a moot point anyway. Might as well "upgrade" to W10 then, when I need to redo all my OS crap anyway... not looking forward to that with the dozens of licenses I have running on here.

Justice Department goes nuclear on Google in search warrant fight.

The government noted that "the customary sanction for an individual's refusal to comply with court-ordered disclosure is immediate imprisonment." But the authorities are not pressing for that because "a corporate entity obviously cannot be imprisoned for its refusal to comply with a court order, the usual contempt sanction imposed against corporate entities is a fine."

So wait, corporations aren't people? I'm so confused!

Even better, the court order demands that google US violates EU law, which would make it target for persecution in the EU.

The court order by the US court is illegal.
