Re: " with a third of its staff in the UK from overseas"

Health service?

what a great example of a vibrant healthy business....

due in no small part to being _constrained_ to operate with a significant proportion of their frontline staff being contractors.

If they were in the private sector (checks watch) they would ALL have gone bust years ago.

in a post about electoral accountability you state a preference for a monarch.

Sleep an hibernate are just a pain in the arse as far as I can tell. i was trained to shut down with windows 3.0 and don't really get the 'advantage'of having my computer not working, but still running the battery down. nevermind the consequences of even the smallest memory leak when your uptime is potentially infinity.

shut down, it's cathartic, it's the end of the day. full stop, i no longer belong to 'the man', the next few hours are all mine.

The underbelly of simulation science: replicating the results

Naughtyhorse

Re: Often modelling simply adds rigour to thought experiments

Stay there while I go find my copy of 'chaos' and load it into the pocket trebuchet i just aimed at you :-)

the reason 'cfd' is hard is that it is fundamentally chaotic, and the combination of floating point and positive feedback is what caused all the problems. high sensitivity to small variations in initial conditions, coupled with noisy data. you can't really model something like that incrementally - you can theorise, and apply limited tests under highly controlled conditions, but as soon as you try to do anything real world all bets are off.

There is still much work to be done in understanding nonlinear systems. and the current political shenanigans between the scientific and oil/coal producing industrial complex is not helping.

Yet curiously the predictions of the warmists come to pass time and time again.

It must be so frustrating knowing you are right and having the data dispute your.... deeper understanding/prejudice (delete inaplicable) time after time

Re: 198,000

- Expensive Well-built

Trouble with that analysis is that it's based on the cars already produced by tesla, which were slightly more expensive.

it's like saying the ferrari F12 berlinetta is one hell of a car, so this fiat 500 must be great too.

both made by fiat

Apple Fools: Times the House of Jobs went horribly awry

Naughtyhorse

Re: 1985-1997 missteps???

Have you seen any of the tat they have produced in the last few years?

If they fell into a barrel of tits they would come out sucking their thumbs!

By all accounts St. Jobs was a nightmare to deal with, but you have to grudgingly admit he really knew what he was about - or at least stood his ground even if he was wrong!. Everyone else at 1 infinite loop (what an appropriate address) not so much, I guess the last person Jobs would consider working for was Jobs.

As an anti fanboi the last few years have been very entertaining, as they dropped the ball time and time again. It's going to catch up with them soon.

As far as I can see, it's just a question of how long it takes them to burn through that (mahoosive) pile of cash they are sitting on.

better to plug it into the GPS and only have it operate when you are under a bridge.

Got a pricey gaming desktop from PC World for Xmas? Check the graphics specs

Naughtyhorse
Silver badge

Probably never be an issue...

Given that modern GTX cards automatically limit the clock & therefore consumption based on heat. If you run the psu hot, the inside of the box gets hot, this hot air is drawn into the card and the gpu throttles back.

My vishera does not like the heat, so the gpu (a 970) is limited, by me, to 60C - just to keep the overall heat in the system down. Under load the gpu runs flat out until the temp reaches 60, then eases off. I use it for cuda rendering, and that loads the thing more than any game (well crysys with all the knobs turned up to 11 is a breeze compared to a large render)

dunno about PSU limits... mine is 850w and.... sufficient. But i do have a 3d printer with slurps about 30amps at 12v and a (500w? 650w?) PC psu simply couldn't drive it. didn't overheat just maxed out at 25A and ran happy for hours on end, just didnt drive the bed heat up enough. so the protection on modern psu's is pretty good.

Then again anyone looking for a serious game rig is not going to start at pc world, and definitely not end up there.
