Comment: Humans versus Human (Score 1) 50 50

This contest pits Human artists against Human machine programmers (who are also artists, but opinions on this may vary). One holds a paints brush, the other a violin, a third one a computer.

It is not the computer that generates the art works, just as the paint brush and the violin do not create the art.

Comment: Meccano to support CPU cooler. (Score 1) 210 210

I have an extraordinarily heavy CPU heatsink, of about 2 kg, that would tend to bend the motherboard, and maybe damage it, or lose close contact with the CPU because of it, so I have supported it with a Meccano support beam and suspension to a higher part of the case. So far, this has worked perfectly.

I have a heavy CPU heat sink (Thermalright True Copper) that could easily bend my motherboard with its 2 kg coppery goodness. To prevent that, I have made an extra support structure using Meccano. Luckily, the distance of the holes was precisely right for the support.

The USofEUis just the desire to become bigger bigger BIGGER MUAHAHAHAHAAH. The EU is even having longstanding plans to incorporate Turkey, while it is a theocracy where journalists who write critically about the government are 'vanished'... The EU is just a money game for people high up the asslicking ladder to have their asses licked more thoroughly

You are the prerequisite for a programmer. I consider myself a fairly decent (although by no way expert) programmer, but I can do nothing when my machine is down. I do not understand about network architectures and various related problems. I need somebody to make my machine run smooth and nicely, and I can take it from there. But people like me are very grateful to people like you!
