A quick glance over at Newegg would throw into question your statement that "most intel/amd sound chips don't support high range, 5.1 or 7.1 surround". Supporting 5.1 & 7.1 surround are de rigeur on even the low end motherboards that are available. As far as "high range", if you don't define it, I guess we don't know if they support it.
I had a sound driver that could play digitized audio over my case buzzer. Worked OK on my laptop.
Soundblaster cards don't have the imaginary qualities audiophiles look for?
IOS full device encryption is only activated when a passcode is added to the device. Android's works the exact same way. If you don't have a passcode on your iPhone, your device is NOT encrypted, and resetting your device will have the exact same vulnerability to these kinds of data restoration tools.
Must be bad power or something. I have CFLs that have lasted so long that I took them with me when I moved.
There are plenty of laws in existence to deal with libelous or legally damaging stories on the internet. Why does this law need to exist outside of those existing methods? Well, that would be to force Google to do the job of the courts in the EU, of course.
Personally, I wouldn't have a problem if all these instances were adjudicated by a court first, and Google was handed a list of "when a user searches for this, this specific link should be omitted" rather than the cop out "Google has to look at each request and decide what fits" BS.
Hmm. I use power from the TV USB port, so it shuts off when I turn off the TV.
Yeah, no kidding. Clearly these knobs have a more accurate study they're quoting, right? They couldn't just be saying, "Yeah, sure, it's never that windy around me" and trying to pass that off as skeptical insight?
Oh wait, that's exactly what they're doing. Clearly these idiots have never been to the Columbia river gorge where this real study was done and the wind blows nearly constantly. What a bunch of morons.
Yep, and for very good reason. Anyone approaching this without fear, uncertainty, or doubt is a complete idiot who understands neither the process nor the math.
Exactly. If it were a mathematically proven safe bet, the companies making the mining equipment should be sued by their shareholders for not taking those machines and putting them into production themselves. They'd be doing the owners a great disservice by not taking the guaranteed profits.
I understand quite well that with bitcoin you're competing to complete a proof of work for a block before anyone else, and there is no guarantee, there is no prize for second place, you have no way to accurately gauge who you're competing against, and the prize itself has a volatile value. Clearly our definitions of "speculation" differ wildly.
So yes, just like a coin toss is governed by forces that can be modeled mathematically but are so ridiculously complicated that there's no practical way to do it in the ascribed time period, so is bitcoin mining.
If it were a sure bet that could be counted on to produce, then the mining machine producers would be idiots to sell the equipment they produce in lieu of firing them up and mining themselves
It's speculation because it is possible to spend outrageous amounts of money on equipment and there is no guarantee that you'll see any return. There is no payout for "best effort". It's not like a job where you turn on the machine and you get paid for the number of hours that the machine runs. It's a race in which you have no way of accurately knowing who you're racing against.
Yeah, just like betting on a coin toss is governed by "mathematically laws".
Freedom of speech! Freedom of speech! I don't know what it means, but I'll bitch about it on the internets, yup!
A few cherry picked lines from a chat log and it really looks like Sabu is the mastermind behind everything... or not. Even with this garbage that's being presented out of context it looks like he's just doing what people do on chatters, answering questions and talking crap.
