When I saw the word Tornado
I was hoping it was about this

I was hoping it was about this
Easy to rationalise
1. BBC - Top Gear
6. Amazon Prime - The Grand Tour
All motoring shows worth watching counted for.
Worse spelling than I thought!
Missing key strokes mainly and a shift 4 rather than 5
PS4 runs on a variant of BSD not Linux
Standard PC graphics ;ibraries are also not best for graphics quality.
DX12 best, doubt it.
Getting closer to the "Metal" is always best for performance.
I reckon SCORIO will be about 10$ to 20% more powerful hardware wise, but never bet against Sony ICE team and Guerilla*
* yes they did have a PS3 multiplayer which looked better than the first this generation COD
Sorry for any bad spelling as I can't quite see my monitor clearly due to presbyopia and y moniror glasses are at work
But many great games missing.
This week I have played 3 games
Horizon Zero Dawn, console only
Destiny, console only
Uncharted 4. consoel only
Yes I took down a robot dinosaur* with a compound bow and arrows
Yes I ran around slaughtering aliens.
Yes I robbed an auction (hard play through)
And yes I own Borderlands 1, 2, Presequel
* Most are mammal equivalents, only the Thunderjaw is a robot dinosaur.
But it would not cover PS and XBOX
Then you do need 2 subscriptions
Quite possible that console 2 would be off line.
"If you were plowing a field, which would you rather use?... Two strong oxen or 1024 chickens?"
Raw power helps.
Better draw distances, better animations, more NPCs, more detailed characters.
It can allow more engrossing stories, more games which provide that wow feeling.
After spending the last month hunting robotic animals, being able to stop and sightsee really adds to the experience.
But better than emulating a PS1 is that I can download and play a lot of them on the 3.
Oh and you can play Crash Bandicoot on a PS4 as well, complete with commentry from Nathan Drake himself.
One good thing about the PS3 was the fast connection between CPU and GPU, it enabled the fast but low throughput GPU to use a few CPU SPUs to do calculations.
Hard to code for, but when done properly by the likes of Naughty Dog or Guerilla the results were astounding.
The 360 was a lot easier to code for but ultimately a bit less powerful.
Well stuff that
I am only missing the PS1.
Got 2, 3 and 4
And prefer Vita games to telephone games
The SCORPIO fixes the XBONE technical weaknesses.
1 main CPU core
6 SPU cores
7 cores basically, but most of them got used as surrogate GPUs.
And console CPUs are a little bit different to telephone CPUs.
last gen though was fascinating.
Same ram as PS4 (GDDR5) but more, slightly more compute cores than PS4PRO, running slightly quicker, slightly better CPU than PS4PRO. A number of small improvements which will all add up.
Appears to be similar improvement over PS4PRO as PS4 is over XBONE.
If it is not too much money it would be worth getting if you have a suitable TV, and you like the games.
Now the crunch, where are all the games for it? Is it worth the extra money over a PS4PRO? Will people upgrade from XBONE or S? Will PS4PRO owners double up? Would a TV owner going from HD to UHD get one?
And one more thing, Sony have 2 studios who can wring the last drop put of any console, would a SCORPIO game look better than Horizon : Zero Dawn on PS4PRO.
Now if I was in the market for a new console (my PS4 stays put) I would go S before SCORPIO, due to price as it would be an exclusive only box. If I had a new UHD TV I would go PS4PRO for the games over SCORPIO.
I hope it does well as we need a strong market to keep everyone honest.
Anyway good luck MS with the SCORPIO, it will keep the market active, but you have rather a large lack of Thunderjaws.
Well due to forced adverts Fox DVDs are unpurchasable so Fox = torrent
In fact it was Sky poaching stuff off Free to Air that lead me first to the world of torrents
To not give a single penny to the crook and his companies.
But it is difficult.
An apprentice PFY here.
Instead I got excited about the well know 10 engined KM
Mine is off, but search is broken.
I typed in action centre, nothing found.
I don't type Yank
As to dog tags, for fashion?
Wasn't it a dodgy fashion years ago?
They sack a sysadmin without protecting their system.
Sack someone and you make an enemy. As soon as you are considering it make sure that you can protect your system.
Bring them into the meeting, chat about why and how sorry you are to let them go. Offer a nice (but honest) reference. Keep them there.
While this is happening change all passwords, temporarly block all remote access, make sure your backups are OK.
If there is no new sysadmin ready to drop in, oh dear!
Remember there are people who think BOFH is a documentry.
Nice to see first flight using RR Trent engines.
Something world beating and British
Boeing or Airbus, both use a lot from the UK.
Is there a copy anywhere safe?
Do not want to go to a conspirasy theory site
National security risk.
We have the technology GCHQ
We have the reply SAS
Just do it, trace them back and terminate them.
Not sure what to say, but so incredibly backwards.
I am surprised this moron has even heard of computers.
Is currently looking at new wood flooring.
I have to do two rooms and she is looking for the colour she wants.
But Elms was a really nasty piece of work, but looking at recent events I would say that nutters recruited by extremist nutters is a really important thing to watch.
Lee Rigby killers and Elms are both of this type.
A complete nutter and used to go around slicing people for fun.
Elms should have been on a watch list as a total nutter found by radical nutters a few years ago.
Plenty out there about his past, a really nasty piece of work.
I found that Google was faulty, one of the biggest faults is that + is no longer used so searching for X Y Z will find many results for Y Z but none for X Y Z, so did +X Y Z, errors.
DuckDuckGo however returned a few X Y Z sites.
Should have gone to Nantucket then, or CA even
Does it on computers as well
I hate moving stuff, especially when stuff is moved for no reason.
But my favourite and the one which needed a restore was great.
I wiped an accounting system.
Because it used non standard GUI.
I accidently went into the wipe system option so clicked no. But the program yes no boxes were all swapped over, so I clicked yes, brilliant design there Pegasus, I did have a go at you for that. A right shonky piece of software.
I so wanted to bypass their importer by directly inserting transactions but I was told not worth the risk, use their ANAL and TRAN files.
I still think directly inserting is safer than letting a programmer test on a system.
BTW Our system used a DBF compatable client server system.
Or another one, didn't we used to have a very effective V/STOL jet fighter?
Beat me to it
I need to tell a US friend who didn't vote against Trump (not sure if abstained or Trumped) he will be for sale and it is his own fault.
Next building to ours is an old building, black timbers, white paint. A sign on a post. Quiet and relaxing.
Serve Stowford Press.
Yes I work very near a pub!
Fruit is for fermenting, apples, grapes, pears.
Vegetables are for keeping the meat company in a roast.
Roast potatoes hmmmm
Sprouts hmmmm - really!
And some nice roast beef and Yorkshires, or chicken with stuffing.
But I detest peas!
I am now hungry!
Lot of effort being invested here.
So sell in Europe and Tax in Europe, nothing to do with US taxes.
I cannot see anything wrong with that.
Still says hotmail in the address, so still hotmail to me.
Is that why I get strange logins for Hotmail now?
I don't have a Skype, nor a One Drive, nor an X Box?
What has an email account to do with online telephones, or a gaming login?
I have had 2 Hotmail accounts for YEARS. They are now approaching unusable, one is my fail over non ISP non my mail server account, and the other my risky use one.
Hotmail bring up that outlook turd, or some generic login nothing to do with hotmail.
I need to migrate those last two accouts off it.
Look at the way the government are now threatening the BBC for doing the news as it does not fit their narrow view.
They say a safe and filtered internet, but why has that PC picked up an encryption virus?
That is NOT safe.
Break out the solicitors.
If you cannot use the internet on an old unsecured version of Windows without getting owned that filter is useless.
But they say that is not the aim.
But it endangers computers.
Does this mean they are stopping it and I can remove my greasemonkey scripts?
Why do you think she look so confident around him?
She has him by the short and curlies.
It was a real pain compared to 98 R2
Still DOS under the bonnet but hid it for no real reason.
It was a PITA to set up to run DOS applications, much more hassle than 98.
XP was much much better than ME, as at least it was a proper Windows OS rather than a messed up GUI layer
At least I am OK with XP and 7
(yes I did get updates on XP yesterday)
>> Trump doesn't do evidence. The fecal bacteria in his gut do all his thinking for him.
The ginger moggy on his head does that.
Education required more than punishment.
