Oops, too late.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Once the celebrities start spouting the nonsense, it's too late.
The female 18-50 market segment won't let go of it for another five years.
Thanks Lancet! Thanks Hollywood!
Janitors don't produce any revenue for a company, but they are necessary for the people who do.
The same goes for IT staff. Unless your company is selling IT services, they don't produce any revenue for the company but are necessary for the people who do.
IT people understand a developer's job about as much as a janitor does.
Seriously - get overselves and STOP finding ways to make my job more difficult. MY job produces the revenue that pays YOUR salary.
. . . it would have been a giant mushroom on a mini-bike.
And nobody would have reported seeing anything unusual that day.
Seriously, how predictable and cliche can you be?
Wow. Just frickin' wow.
You must be making bank to stick around a hole like that.
If you're getting laid, you're much less likely to hate your fellow human beings and desire to blow them (and sometimes yourself) up.
I wonder how long it will be before someone posts a foaming-at-the-mouth diatribe against Dick Cheney. . ?
And you think its going to get any better AFTER you're married?
Bwa ha ha ha!
Sorry - couldn't resist. Much joy and happiness to you both.
And it's pretty much guaranteed the anchovies will keep moochers way.
Alas, the OLD Helen Back pizza, the one with the salt-rimmed crust.
Now it sucks, but its still a great place to pick-up crazy off-duty strippers late at night.
Once upon a time when I watched my diet and exercised 6 days a week, it used to be around 55-60 bpm. But now, after my second divorce and a year of booze, cigarettes, and high-fat foods who knows where its at - maybe 70 bpm resting if I'm lucky.
But I sure as hell am a lot happier.
Microsoft and Lockheed Martin? Greed overload detected...
It's a natural synergy. When the cargo door falls off, there will be a
Most of the "important" features of Direct3D 11 will be exposed immediately as OpenGL extensions.
Well, given the fact that the most important feature of DirectX 11 isn't Direct3D, but in fact is DirectCompute, OpenCL would be a better suited equivalent.
And OpenCL integrates nicely with OpenGL, just like DirectCompute with Direct3D.
But beside a few simulation eye candy like water surface or debris during an explosion, it won't cause much difference in games (because otherwise the physics would influence too much on the game play).
That is, until monstrous power hogs like Crysis 3 and Windows 8 are out. Then the users will have to buy modern hardware en masse, and the install base of DX11 hardware will increase. Only then the developers will be free to safely harness DXCompute for complex physics simulations at game-play level.
Imagine a massive stock car race with Rigs-of-Rods -grade physics simulation of every single vehicle - much more realistic collision and more fun, but would require massive acceleration. If a game developer decides to go for DirectCompute as a possible acceleration solution, better check that most of the user have DX11 capable hardware !
