They fixed that AVX thing months ago on older CPUs. I know because once they patched it to remove AVX instructions, like 4 or 5 patches ago, it fixed the crash I always got on my old i7 980x at the point after meeting Jackie and going through the border check. They needed to fix it again or what? I've since built a $4200 (pre-trump-tariffs) monster PC because it ran like shit on my old box with a 1080 Ti. Lel

Edit - oh apparently they released a patch sometime after that added them back in. Lovely.

I had to ditch my old phone as it would not upgrade past android 5 and the state government's QR check in app only supports android 6 and up.

So I bought a samsung galaxy s9.
Frankly I was disgusted with the amount of crap that it comes preinstalled with.
What I was most annoyed about though was that so much of the crap can't be properly uninstalled. I've spent too much time disabling permissions and trying to decypher dark patterns. I've had moderate success getting things into better shape but it is still less than ideal.

If I'd had more time I would've never purchased this phone. But it was cheap and I need the app to move around as freely as is allowed. We are still in lockdown Sad
If people would just do the bare minimum required to help keep everyone around them safe, we would be through this shit already.

This is definitely shaping up to be the dumb, intolerant generation in some respects--it must be awful to have to go through life censoring--or trying to censor--every opinion you find personally disagreeable. Sounds like a lot of useless work for no reward except maybe ignorance. Such conduct does nothing to convince anyone of a contrary opinion. OTOH, I often like to hear and read opinions that differ from my own because of the slim possibility that I might learn something, or that they might actually think of something that hadn't occurred to me. In a free society, it is called debate, and if you cannot debate your point of view then censoring someone else's contrary opinion sure won't carry the day. It's called "having an open mind," which seems to be a rarity these days.

Whistleblowing does not equal absolute truth--and I'm surprised that isn't common sense these days. It's a self-evident truth. Too many people are ready to jump on the bandwagon whenever an accuser speaks. Maybe I'm an oddball, but for me, accusations do not equal "evidence"--evidence is something entirely separate from mere accusation. If you set out to hurt someone, then you better darn well have all your ducks in a row and be able to prove your case in an objective sense. We've seen far too much pettiness and narrow-mindedness in the politics of the last five years. Anyone that has to block others from reading opinion articles--well, there's just something wrong with that person, imo. In all of my life I've never seen people more afraid of words, and people who hold strong opinions but are completely unable to support or justify those opinions, who think that censorship is "debate." Censorship is the opposite, the absence, of debate. Debate is healthy, censorship is a disease in a free-speech zone like America.

Yeah. Republicans are 100% traitors. I agree.

Why don't people learn? EVGA is fucking hot garbage. Almost as bad as Zotac. They always cheap out on components. Remember the fucked up heat sinks on 970s and 2070s, and the whole POSCAP/MLCC thing? I'll never own an EVGA product. They're cheaper than some other brands for a reason.

Please. Anonymous is like half a dozen fat, hairy neckbeards on 4chan flexing their self-importance for all to see. I'd bet they don't really communicate either, one of them randomly releases a video or something independently to make it seem like there is some organized group of nerds, but it's just a handful of dudes with bad hygiene and no real potency in terms of "hacking" skills. 🙂

I'll never go back to sub-48-inch displays after my 55" 4k Sony TV on my desk. All these 144/240hz whatever monitors need to start coming in a more appealing size than like 27". Who the fuck can even use such a small screen anymore?

Sweetie there's no need for you to feel ashamed. But rest assured your ignorance and anti-vaxxer trolling is lame and sad.
People like you are what's wrong w/the world today.

Buzzword alert: Troll. Wow, I've never been called that before. Good show mate.

Btw, I thought that was the whole point of calling people with opposing viewpoints anti-vaxxers and grandma killers. To instill a sense of shame and remorse for...well...wanting to kill all the grandmas in the world. We are horrible people, aren't we?

When "other people" stop writing silly #*$& in their taglines maybe I'll remove mine. Until then read it again!

Unintelligence has never been easier to call out since the Trumpandemic.

I really wish I could find a 3080...

Have you tried the Newegg Shuffle?


Was mostly 3060's today

https://www.newegg.com/product-shuffle

good luck!


I sold someone a 5900x I had used for like two days before I got a 5950x on OfferUp for $625. We got to talking about computers and stuff, and he mentioned he was trying to get ahold of a 3080. I told him I'd keep a look out and let him know if I could find one. THE VERY NEXT DAY, I won an Asus Strix 3080 in the Shuffle. Sold it to him for basically what I paid (retail+tax). It can be done.
