i'm in the market for a new phone. anybody have a recommendation? android, mid-tier preferably, or last gen, good camera. SD card slot a bonus but not necessary.

I got a Moto G5 from Costco a few months back for $170 or $180? It's running Android 8.1.0 atm. I have a 32GB SD card in mine, not sure what the max mem is. Cameras are 13 and 5 MP. Battery isn't great IMO but I don't use the battery saver stuff either. However it comes with a rapid charger and it is really effing fast. Basically 0 to full in an hour. I don't like how integrated it is with Google so I've disabled as much of their shit as I can and I use apps from a company called Simple Mobile Tools on the Gplay store. I encourage everyone to use them. They fast, light, clean, work well, and the guy that makes them actually respects peoples privacy - which is why he started making them. They only ask for necessary permissions. Well worth supporting the guy. Good enough phone for the price point IMO.
Thanks for the info on Simple Mobile Tools, I'll put that in my toolbag.

One of my guilty pleasures is Al Pacino in "The Devil's Advocate" which seems to get far less credit than I think it deserves. So many people are down on Keanu...
Agreed

But Inglorious Bastards is one of my favorite movies
The opening scene with Christoph Waltz in that farm house is one of my favorites in any movie. It gives me chills to watch it, and it immediately put him near the top of my "best actors" list.
ditto
I could not drink milk for a long time afterwards.

jdreyer, Dacote - Recieved the 2080TI at work. I'll keep you updated on the 1080TI.
Let us know how much of an improvement it is over your other card.
I plan on updating my test guide with New sheet. This will also include my memory upgrade although I suspect the extra 16GB will have little impact on the FPS. The 2080TI should be handling the bulk of that.
The test guide is public but the New sheet asks for permission.

Stranger Things can do no wrong.
The second season had something to say about that...
Exactly, I thought the second season was way better than the first.
Alas metacritic ranks season 1 at 76 and only gives season 2 a 78.

Ionizing radiation damages electronic equipment. Components can be "hardened" to shield them from the effects, but I doubt such old soviet-era equipment was built for such a hostile environment.

Yes I know that much but that doesn't explain why the prop fell off. It looked like it almost disintegrated.
The blade hit a crane guy wire.

This helicopter crash did happen in real life—there's even footage on YouTube of it hitting the crane line, and falling right out of the sky, just like in the show.

This entire thing is just hyped up to absurdity to sell more CPU's

I think it has more to do with confidence in Intel rather than being genuinely concerned in regards to MDS. Intel has been riding a wave of damage control ever since Spectre and Meltdown was discovered which was further compounded by the scope of the impact as well as the solutions which can undermine performance especially in older systems.

Just two days ago a new MDS, Zombieload, popped up. Intel's potential solution to this? Tell consumers they may have to disabled Hyper Threading. I'm still sure the chances of being affected are microscopic but this is how far down the rabbit hole Intel has found itself.

I'm not at all concerned about my system getting compromised so I've been more or less ignoring the mitigations but it leaves an incredibly sour taste in my mouth when consumers are asked to pick up the slack because Intel put performance over security whereas AMD has hardware mitigation out of the box and are quickly gaining ground.


... this probably doesn't address the point you were making. Caught myself in a tangent.
forum post snippet
"Intel engineers haven't respected ring 0 kernel mode security for ages. Its why their hyper threading has major issues... I mean their unpatched chips basically don't bother to check if bits have permission to be there until after they execute. (just saying it out loud even complete laypersons know that is bad... lets unlock the door and then check and see if that shady looking dude had a key)"

Thanks ChadD

Purchased a 2080TI.

And...? How is it?

I'm about to purchase another 2070. The last one crashed on certain games (DCS), but worked fine for others (E:D). Hoping a new hardware revision, or better drivers will be sufficient.

I don't have it yet. I'll get it in 1-2 weeks, so I'll let you know then.

That puts my current 1080TI likely up for sale. In July 2018, I paid $810 for a MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti DirectX 12 GeForce GTX 1080 Ti GAMING X 11G 11GB 352-Bit GDDR5X PCI Express 3.0 x16. This card is one of the best-in-class 1080TIs. So far, performance remains excellent and without issues. I didn't OC it, so there's plenty of life left in it. I'll likely offer it for $250 (shipping included) which is cheaper than a standard-priced 1080. Highly recommend for anyone on a 960 or less, but not ready to go full 2080 series.

I'd be interested. I'm still running a 670, which still runs great, but not good enough to power my VR HMD. Not really interested in RTX. Send you a PM?

EDIT: Oh, your Blues DM is off. Can you DM me?
I'm in need of a new card, I would buy it if for some reason jdreyer does not. my dm

Funny, I don't remember a Gallup poll on fan reaction to the new Barret. It's almost like Kotaku, ground zero in the culture-war-as-clickbait disease, sees the opportunity to bitch about something while harvesting clicks, without the slightest evidence. But how could that be? That would be like... I don't know... monetizing outrage.

But I'm sure that they actually have a carefully designed poll to gauge "fan" reaction, as opposed to asking a handful of soy-boy colleagues in the desks next to them (who never even played the original)...

Did you unironically call someone "soy boy?"


Yep, it's my "Beamer call." I figure you hear "soy" and just assume you've been summoned.
Spoken like a true troll. Dude, that's sad.
