... sits down and starts singing about gold.
"Gold, gold, gold, gold..."
Oh bugger, can't remember the next verse... something like... Gold, er... glod, not that's not right. GOLD! yeah that's it. Gold, gold gold...
MySpy has been spyed on.
Irony isn't only "a bit like iron."
Well, while you're talking about SINGLE THREADED apps, sure. You are correct. Lots of games have a sweet spot at 4 cores (like a lot of intels offerings.) These are OK if you only game, or are happy with only a few open programs.
Me though, I use a number of sensible programs that use ALL of the available cores. And they fly with my FX9590. I have a large screen real estate and many forground programs and a number of background services too. my kit rarely gets to 40C (about 20C above ambient.) A corsair H110 water cooler sees to that, and I only run at stock clock speed, 4.7GHz.
I use Intel i7's at work, it is trying to provide the same environment as I use at home. My home workstation is far, far more usable than the i7 setup.
The total cost of ownership weights heavily in AMDs favour too. AMD based motherboards, CPUs and High end graphics cards are much cheaper than the intel / nvidia products.
IMHO if you want to play, get intel. If you need to work, get AMD.
Oh yes, still sniggering.
In the late '70s I had a discussion with a colleague regarding the efficiency of cylinder combination locks. I said that they were crap, he thought that his was good security.
To prove him wrong I opened his lock, dissembled it and rearranged the combination cylinders. The whole job took less that 5 minutes.
When I later found him cursing & swearing at his 'broken' lock, I paused and told him the new combination. He changed his bike lock that night.
Don't forget that it doesn't cost the content producers, as always the tax payers have to foot the bill.
Once upon a time copyright was a civil matter, now we tax payers have to pay to protect other peoples IP.
I think INTELLECTUAL property is a breach of the advertising laws. After all have you seen some of the tripe that comes out of Hol/Bol-iwood now-adays?
Bit like going to the cinema then, eh?
Just GUILTY, there fixed it for you.
Cliff, Please, don't beat about the bush, come right out with it and say what you mean.
It's no good being shy now.
A similar incident occurred just a few weeks after I joined the RN.
The training establishment was HMS Ganges, which meant that all of the trainees (trogs) were between 15 & 16 years old. One such trog was on duty at the guard post. The duty RPO (a hideous breed spoored by the devil himself) had been briefed that, as the Captain, HMS Ganges, was attending a 'do' at the wardroom (officers mess) that night there was to be no cars allowed in via the wardroom gate. Duty RPO instructed trog (mentioned above) that "No cars were to eneter via the wardroom gate."
You can see where this is going can't you.
Trog, now standing watch all by his lonesome, has been turning away cars for a while now. And a BIG cars arrives. Trog stops the car and asks the driver to use the main gate as this one is closed. (well the actual gates were wide open but he was guarding them gates and he had bin told that they wus closed.
The cars rear window lowers to reveal an Officer,who was NOT impressed. "Do you know who I am?" he asked. "No Sir," said trog saluting. "Please may I see your ID card Sir?"
The seated Officer, now ready to rip body parts off people, showed his ID card. (Showing your ID is always a GOOD IDEA. As the guards have the right, privilege and AUTHORITY to request ID from ANYONE.) The trog handed the ID back and said "I know who you are now Sir, you're The Captain, HMS Ganges. The Captain nodded, pleased at having been recognized at last. "Now may I enter my ship?" he asked. The trog replied "No Sir, please use the main gate. I have been briefed that this gate is closed tonight."
Seething Captain relents and tells his, white faced, driver to go round to the main gate.
At the main gate the Captain stops and inquires WHO briefed the guard on the wardroom gate.
All fingers point to the Duty RPO. Who is also now white faced. But he's trembling as well.
At the conclusion to this sad tale, the RPO got a reprimand, a serious blot on ones record, and a VERY swift move to another ship. And the trog got a written commendation, for following orders inspite of the obvious difficulty he was in.
gen dit honest!
Don't forget the fact is that ridicule hurts. It hurts whether you're a child, adult (I was going to say "grown up", but I've read a lot of the commentards on this site.) or dribbling fanatic.
The purpose of terrorism is to terrify. If your target is laughing at you it's hard to believe that you have terrified them.
I'm sure that the leaders and organisers of the ISIS know the real effect that their propaganda is having. I'm equally sure that the average cannon fodder^W^W foot soldier hasn't. But it does bring in a few more morons who believe the bullshit that their preachers are telling them.
With so many idiots being killed in the ISIS, maybe they are doing a good thing. They are after all increasing the average IQ of the planets population.
“the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.” What will the Americans think of next?
You really don't get this whole respect thing do you. When you die do you hope people will say "Oh, he's dead now. Whats on tele tonight?" I hope someone remembers to bury / cremate your body before you start smelling too bad.
There will always be people "greater" than you. And those "lesser" than you. If you have no respect for the abilities, talents and achievements of the "greaters" how are you going to acknowledge any assistance you could give to the "lessers?" This isn't about peons knowing their place. It's about knowing when (and from where) to ask for help, and when (and to whom) to give help. I take it that you've never needed assistance in your (seemingly quite lonely) life.
And you don't respect other peoples choices. You only seem to take note of what affects you. If people are smoking in a public, outdoor area, why don't you exercise your right to move elsewhere?
I wonder, when you die will people who have never met you say "My life is better for his being here, for his work." Will someone on another continent say "Did you know ACs died, Oh my $(diety) how awful."
Will thousands of strangers want to keep your name alive?
My daughter cussed for the longest time when she heard. She too was bemoaning this embuggerance of no more pressies for her lovely Dad.
RIP Terry, loved you stories since the first. The world is better for your short visit.
No, it's not dusty in here. With this news, I am crying.
War office, wanna fight?
or, for land lines only - Can't talk now, I'm driving.
"and sex education tends to limit any offspring."
You don't live round here do you?
You're not really trying are you?
Turtle, while I agree with you about the absurdity of this situation, I have to point out that decisions like these aren't taken by rational beings. No, they are taken by lawyers and managers. The senior staff at the hospitals and health trusts, those who don't get their hands dirty helping the patients. The people to whom patients are numbers and trends, inconveniences.
If there was any way to show that their 'bottom line' could be improved by as little as 1p per year by keeping patients alive, or patients details private, then they would fight to do so. However there is too much money to be made by killing^W allowing patients to die with dignity. Besides, it saves on the food bills too.
I really think it was a twunt (a bit of both.)
Try driving up the A34, A43, A14. Oxford to Cambridge sorted. Or do it in reverse. :)
I use two power line adapters to get intrwebby access & transfer stuff & sh!t around the house. I have WiFi too, but one set of PCs are in a black spot. My power line stuff hasn't ever given me a problem.
Oh for goodness sake Breakfast, stop beating about the bush and SAY WHAT YOU MEAN.
Er... How about e) Wait until he's finished and comes outside and arrest him then?
"Is shanks pony.
When I lived in London, I was constantly amazed at how little extra time it took to walk the whole way than walk to the tube/bus, spend money to be exposed to filth dirt and disease, and walk the other end."
I used to walk from St Pancras to Back Hill, Many times I have been nearly killed by twats, sorry, cyclists running red lights, cycling on the pavement, cycling through parks filled with parents & kids playing. One guy knocked an old woman over (she was stupidly crossing while the pedestrian light was green, Tsk tsk) and the swore and cursed HER for being in the way!
The noticeable facts were that they were all convinced that they were in the right, they were untraceable and (I suspect) uninsured. Oh, and were all foul mouthed sods.
Re : Dogged, irrespective of what Braben should or should or should not have done, Mr Braben DID NOT tell his investors that he wasn't going to include a specifically desired and publicized function.
There is a passage in the UK sale of goods act which states that goods or services must fulfill specifically advertized functions or functionality.
Under UK law the complainers have a right to a refund.

Popcorn - Check
More beer - Check
OK now to read these comments.
That's absolutely correct. Because that way they don't get picked up and nabbed for something stupid like not wearing a seatbelt, or doing 5mph over the speed limit, or dropping litter, etc. etc.
Not quite as insulting this time.
But he forgot a number of points.
1) Dress for an INTERVIEW! Your favourite geek tee-shirt won't do. And yes, I've had an interviewee turn up in tee-shirt and jeans. Cleavage DOES NOT WORK! If it does you really, really don't want to work there. I have blackballed a candidate simply because of inappropriate dress.
2) Posture. This is important. Look as though you are interested in the interviewers and what they are saying. Even if it is a bunch of crap.
3) Say Hello, say Goodbye. Manners maketh the man. They also help make the employed.
4) Most technical managers doing the interview are probably as nervous as you are. If they feel that you are at ease, that will probably help them too. This brings major brownie points.
that Leonardo DiCaprio died in Titanic.
I'm sure he did. I watched it eight times just to make sure.
or even religious fanatics who are lawyers.
Never bought into the i* thing. Was impressed by the Apple Lisa, after than, no.
Mr. Jobs, the man... A great loss to his family, my condolences to them.
A loss to the business world? well, that depends on your views of his business ethics. As others have said, like him or loath him, he had a tremendous impact on the way we now live our lives.
"and gets to keep your children to boot."
Ummm... It's starting to look better now. How many do they want and where do I ship them?
"And what do they intend to use when they need to test the upper end of the intelligence spectrum?"
The ability to leave the bluudy thing alone for ten minutes.
I was using non-IBM PC's in the mid to late 80's. We even had an official copy of Flight Simulator. If a PC could run FS, it _WAS_ IBM compatible.
I worked on the Sirius 1 (Victor 9000), and machines from Aston Technologies an outfit near Birmingham (the UK Brum).
There were a huge number of third party manufacturers around then. Low margins finished most of them though.
So, given the number of teetotalers that I know, the rest of us probably need intravenous drips (or should that be pressure pumps?) to keep up the numbers.
I should add that my wife drove me to drink.
God bless her.
"Education is the way out of this problem."
And most of the chavs I've seen don't want education.
In the forces they'd be subject to a strict formalised environment where they can be educated.
Its either national service, of bringing the SAS into our schools to impose discipline on these feral buggers.
At least make your story believable.
Finding your hammer drill indeed.
I don't know.
"Perhaps he should be in talks with the Finnish government to share education methods."
WHAT!!! You mean we should start trying to educate these people!!!!
Go and have a lie down Sir, you're obviously delusional.
We really are missing Ms Bee aren't we.
"Slinging an expensive remote-controlled buggy across will of course not get quite as much done, but it's a lot cheaper and a lot lower risk."
But if you posted an ad in, say flight magazine, "Wanted qualified test pilots for one way Mars mission. 8.5 months in hard radiation 24 months of supplies and no possibility of resupply. Four positions available. Send CV to NASA.
Then I think that you'd need to employ three or four extra admin / HR staff to sort through the CVs and, maybe a platoon of SEALs to stop them trying to break in and plead their case in person.
Exploration is incredibly dangerous. But, if humanity wishes to survive, then it needs to get its collective arse in gear and get off this rock.
If they really want to colonise space, Shirely they'd take TWO ladies and ONE bloke.
Those swine Legonauts are going to colonise space before we do.
"The inquiry into peer review came after the release of the Climategate files, which revealed academics at the University of East Anglia selectively disclosing data needed to replicate their results, hiding from Freedom of Information Act requests, recommending destruction of email trails, and vowing to "redefine" the peer-review process to keep papers they disagreed with out of the publication system."
This and this alone should have been enough to have the scientific world screaming at the CRU.
Golbal warming is far too serious _NOT_ to publish full data, show the algorithms and assumptions used, and present conclusions.
The 'Hockey Stick' graph, would have been laughed out of existence _IF_ the full data and algorithms had been published.
So we now have 'scientists' who are ready to block access and pervert the usual quality processes, I cannot help but wonder WHY.
This time, _WE_ really do need to know.
where does the shark sit?
People want to know.
'it can't be done' proclamations. The 'it's impossible!' ones are just as good.
We'll all have a good laugh about this when time travel is a reality, made possible by ignoring the so called 'limits'.
You try getting a 'suspended prison sentence'. It is a punishment, one that will affect his entire life. _IF_ he gets caught, and convicted, for anything else during the period of his sentence then he goes inside.
So he might not serve 1 day behind bars, he might serve 16 months.
Use laser ring gyros. No drift and very, very accurate. Light weight too.
So it's got to be done in a garage.
Just has to be.
