Actually, it is kinda Kafka-esque in a way because we've got such volatility in the net-neutrality stage right now with our new American President. Things are teetering on a very fine edge and these next few years could determine many of the laws that will affect all of us in some way or another.

I'm sorry, but I see the point of purchasing something like this as sensible as spending $12,000 out of pocket for the Adobe True Type font package. It's great and all that you can make things run at a barely perceptible higher speed, but at the cost of not only the card itself, but cooling, PSU, etc., I'd rather just stay with a more affordable card.

Was built in 1785 :P I know that's pretty low tech, but it's impressive considering how well this place has stood the test of time (in upstate New York with its endless blizzards), and now we've got modern half million to million dollar homes that are made with plywood and pressure treated boards and have problems from day one. Just more examples of how newer is so very often NOT better. For the win.

How can you work when the system's so crowded?
