Well I've hit the point where "actual evidence is required" after UAV and Dalhousie(both being the most recent). Fuck this noise. Seriously, fuck it right in the neck. I don't "trust the articles" I don't "trust the admins" I expect actual evidence.
Don't forget the other faces of anti-GG. Like Wu, who just turned around and supported the doxer of Milo Yiannopoulos. These people and their CON are just plain fucked up in the head.
/. is now turning into "gaming, shit, and garbage." It's just like kotaku...
They tried this in Canada with thermocams. The supreme court hit them so hard on that being a warrantless search that crown attorneys and police services across Canada are still smarting over it. There is precedent, and legal justifications are often carried from other countries on things like this.
Really, I'm leaning the same way but if they did...my question is how stupid do you have to be do to it. As well hotwheels has something up as well, telling mootles to talk to him about something a mod or couple of mods sent him. A lot of stuff flying around the biggest theory is that the ddos against infinite chan was done by a group of mods with his consent. Whether or not that holds true, we'll find out in the next day and a half.
Yep. Here's one if you haven't seen it yet, the sql database for "lizard stresser" is in the wild now, and there's apparently some very interesting email addresses in there. Including information on the person who paid $500 to DDoS 2ch and 8ch.
So I guess that means there's no child porn on infinite chan right. In other words, he made it all up in order to slander gamergate and infinite chan. Well that sure make it easy doesn't it? It's always nice when people come right out into the clear like that, and simply prove what everyone already knows. That when someone doesn't have something substantive, their only recourse is slander and libel.
No it's a euphemism for a group of people who whine, bitch and moan because they think they're special snowflakes and would rather the world work on their idea of justice, or promotion. Instead of merit, and law. Note that the UVA scandal is an example of SJW's in action, so was the whining and moaning over Mozilla's president being fired for making donations on his own time to a group.
You can try and label it as the "scary conservative bogyman" but you're only proving one thing. That you actually have no substantial argument that people are right in calling them the bottom feeders of society.
If by "work just fine" you mean wasting energy and costing you more, then you are right.
You mean "smart meter" programs and all that jazz don't cost you money? Damn why has mine gone up 8% in the last 3 years since they brought this boondoggle into being here in Ontario. Well if it's on track(according to the forecasters), then by 2018 the electricity price here will have gone up by 20% oh joy!
Except that the parent poster wasn't talking about 'nix drivers. They were talking about drivers in general...but I could see how that's confusing.
Don't worry, Nvidia has had shitty drivers for the last 6 or so. So they're catching up. Otherwise there wouldn't have been that series of nvidia drives that cause incorrect fan throttling that burned up cards. Or the problem with TDR's that plagued the 299 through 330's, that's only two years worth. And of course the problem with those drives was so bad that they were paying for PC's to be shipped to California for testing. Of course that particular problem revolved around voltage issues, and the cards being forced into a lower-voltage setting that would cause the card to become unstable. That was their solution to overheating. And then of course we've got the on-going problem with firefox and hardware acceleration on the cards, either causing corruption of the browser, or right up crashes. Then there was the drivers that caused hardlocks on 400,500,600,700 series cards.
I say all of that as someone who's owned 22 nvidia cards over the last 15 years. It was the TDR problem that broke it for me, and I switched to AMD after having swore them off in the 90's. I haven't looked back, and am happier with my 7970.
We already have this in Canada on the books, and is codified in our charter of rights and freedoms. Basically it boils down to: "You can do whatever you want, as long as law or society deem it to be harmful." Generally it's worked out well, and when it's over-reached, people have rallied around getting the law changed and it's happened.
Linking to media matters and using it as a factual source, isn't any different then linking to world nightly news and making the same claim. Their version of truth is "what they want to tell you" even when actual facts are against their grain.
Anything that's stick will still do that. More common in Europe, not so much in the Americas where most people drive automatics now.
Guess you don't live in a cold part of the world in the winter, or where it can hit 35C+ in the summer. Around here in Canada, we use 30-50m segments that aren't welded because the tracks shrink and expand so much. Once the temps drop to -20C here, you can lose over an 3cm, and once it gets over 35C with the train's on them they can expand over 10cm causing them to warp off the bed.
So if I walk outside, the next time a train goes by I can hear it hit every clack clearly. Since it's around -20C right now, I can hear it inside my house about 300m away if I pay attention.
