Not the impression I got from the Reddit thread that popped up around this issue. All anecdotal, but mostly positive with only 2-3 fps lost and at least one where the fps improved instead.
Thanks for the reply. I'll go do a little research on that.
Is there any way to tell a WD Caviar Black drive to behave this way? Mine automatically spins down after 30 minutes of inactivity I believe.
Oh that's fantastic! I didn't even know a setup.exe was stored there. Thanks for the tip!
If only you weren't Anon so I could actually ask for a link or citation.
I have never heard this assessment of Type O Negative before, but I feel like I should have. I only ever got the October Rust album on recommendation and I'm not really fan, but your comment definitely paints "My Girlfriend's Girlfriend" in a different light from before.
Your link to the wiki article on The Third Wave was fascinating....and unsettling. Has the same eerie "we're-not-as-free-willed-as-you-think" vibe as the Stanford Prison Experiment.
I just want to point him in the general direction of the Murdoch media empire with a healthy dose of PCP.
I bet that would be fun to watch.
The restaurant at the end of the universe has already got that contract.
Neither the iPad Mini nor the iPad fully function as a mobile phone. You haven't offered an alternative, you've completely ignored a key factor and still not accounted for calligraphy.
The iPhone 5 has a 4" screen, but with weird dimensions of 640x1136. That's pretty narrow, though I'll readily admit I used to read on my iPod Touch with a very small font. Still, I find it an odd design move.
I currently have the Google Galaxy Nexus at 4.65" with the movie friendly 720x1280 that's wider in portrait mode, the way most people would read on a mobile phone. It's not an unwieldy pocket-choking phone, especially when not in a third party protective case.
The S4 at 5" with a true-to-pixel HD 1080x1920 comes next in size. Having played with one, I find it still doesn't feel to unwieldy at only
Finally for that next step up - and note it is a fully functional mobile phone and not a tablet with Skype to make it a "phone" - is the Samsung Note II. This time with a resistive screen that is better suited for use with a stylus - which comes with it's own spring-loaded dock within the casing of the phone. Now, that does feel big. Kinda like those big wide men's wallets that are meant for big trenchcoat pockets or a briefcase. Also dangerously close to that Nokia N-Gage "side-talking" feeling when used as a phone. No argument there, it's on the big side. But you know what? Those bluetooth earpieces are all over Singapore and I imagine China and Taiwan are no different.
I was struck by this particular bit in the summary:
With the growing problem of gang violence in major U.S. cities...
Wait a sec. Weren't they saying the Crips and Bloods were a growing problem back in the late 80s/early 90s?
Funny how the same record gets played over and over. I'd wager the amount of gang violence has remained about the same, and in relation to a growing population i.e. per capita, has actually shrunk.
Totally off-topic, but I would love to hear your rant on Square Enix. Is it in written form somewhere?
Woops! Got it wrong. Don't know how to edit my old comment. Out of 8 sockets:
- a. 1 is a Master socket with battery backup
- b. 6 sockets are slaved to the master, of which:
- i. 3 slave sockets have battery backup
- ii. 3 slave sockets are surge-protected only
- c. 1 socket is an independent "always-on" socket
Ah right. Well the way this particular model seems to be set up is out of 8 sockets:
- - 3 sockets are slaved to a master socket and have battery backup (4 in total)
- - 3 sockets are not slaved and only have surge protection i.e. no battery backup
- - 1 socket is an "always-on" socket, only surge-protected, no battery backup
Hope that clears things up
I've just bought one of these for personal use in anticipation of my new gaming PC I'm building this weekend: APC Back UPS ES8 Power Saving Outlet 700VA
Found it while scouring for surge-protected multi-plugs with good reviews. The really good quality multi-plugs were already pretty pricey, so going for the UPS seemed logical. Based on its specs, I'll get about 8 minutes to shutdown my PC safely. Not too shabby for less than £100.
