Well, I'm back guys, you just can't keep me away for long can you.
Due to an unusual error in Stanfords database we have had to make a correction to one users stats, @leadeater will be awarded 786,241 points, this number was worked out by analysing his previous production data along with carefully reviewing log file submitted to us. We are confident that this value should be close enough, with 100k likely to be the maximum error. as the final ranks are wo
Day 4 in the trenches.
Were still stuck in the trenches of the Western Front up to our arses in mud and it is raining slow WUs on the troops. Despite this bad weather Major General @miker07 is still our leader at 54.2Milion points but Brigidier General @Gorgonhasn't given up yet and may have brought up reinforcements for his divisions and is hot on his tail at 53.6 Million in 2nd place. The reining champion, Brigadier General @Den-Fi is close behind at 51.6million and again has out-p
With our fearless leader @GOTSpectrumindisposed I'll try to fill in with Today's stat's update ...
Team LTT has produced almost a billion points in the first three days of the event and since today are posting the most points per day of all Folding@Home teams with 423MPPD versus CureCoin's 392MPPD today.
A fierce battle is still raging for the lead but @miker07 remains in 1st place at 39 Miliion points and is slowly increasing their lead over @Gorgon at 38 million. @Den-F
In these early days we start to see the initial ranks coming out, much can, and will change over the next 33 days, but for now we can get a small idea of generally where many of us will find ourselves, will we be comfortably finding ourselves fighting for a respectable top 100, maybe even top 10, or are we in for the misery of finding ourselves fighting to stay afloat in the middle. These numbers are interesting if nothing else and may be an indicator of what is to come, but one is is sure, that
Well guys, we had a hick up for the day one stats and blog, posting in the wrong blog... Total error on my part.
We go through a rigorous validation procedure, most of it is automated, but the final validation is done by hand, which means there is a chance for human error. In this case one value was missed in the sheet of 1754 records, we record both point and WU data too. If you see anything not quite right feel free to drop any of us a DM.
any users that have not produc
Hey guys, this is just going to be rankings being pasted as my partner is very much unwell,
If you don't see yourself on the list that is because you haven't produced any points yet, if you think this is wrong PM @Gorgon
Well guys, it is my pleasure to once again welcome people from all social echelons of the LTT forum to the second official Linus Tech Tips FOLDING MONTH!
We welcome folding titans such as @Den-Fi who is the sitting champion, @Gorgon who will be eyeing up the top spot this year with the intention of dethroning the king and @_Rlocke who has promised to give us a good show with more hardware to throw around this year. LMG staff such as @jakkuh_t will hopefully be joining us along with m
The Kailh Box Jade is one of the most famous clicky switches in the mechanical keyboard scene, boasting a thick click bar, MX stem with a box, and moderate afforadability at around $0.34 at any major mechanical keyboard switch retailer.
I have owned and use Kailh Box Jades for a month on my main keyboard and have experienced great joy from using these particular switches, they have a consistent click and actuation, and the sound of them is crisp and full, compared to that of the Cherry Blue
If you've ever used Cisco Prime Infrastructure's CLI Templating, you'll find that Cisco DNA's (Digital Network Architecture) CLI templating is an enhanced version found within Cisco Prime. Of course, there are many other features within DNA but this is just a quick example while I have 15 minutes of free time to demonstrate CLI templating and how it can be used to effectively deploy unified templates to a Cisco infrastructure instead of using other methods such as: Python + CLI scraping, Ansible
The Tealios V2 are a boutique linear switch offered by ZealPC which features a 67g spring, Gateron-made housing, and a smooth, linear stem in Tiffany & Co. blue, no I'm not joking, the pantone for the stem is inspired by Tiffany & Co, and it's adorable. It sets itself apart from color from Zeal's popular purple Zealios, Hermes orange Healios, and pink Sakurios and Rosélios switches.
I bought a 68 pack of Tealios V2 from KBDfans, for $1 a switch, which is expensiv
Recently got the catalyst for Graviton Lance, been essentially maining it in PvE and PvP as a result.
Today, I'd like to talk a bit about this weapon. In the event of somebody not knowing Graviton Lance, I'll start by doing a quick run-down:
Graviton Lance is an exotic Void pulse rifle. It fires a two-round burst, and features the Black Hole perk(second round does more damage, has no range falloff, and has more recoil), and the Cosmology trait: kills with
The NovelKeys Creams are a linear switch made by NovelKeys in partnership with Kailh. This switch is the first of its for Kailh as it features a traditional MX stem and MX-style latching for the housing, and I'd say Kailh have done fairy well.
These switches are made using an al-POM housing - that's DuPont POM Plastics - and also for the stem. POM has been used in this switch as it is often referred to as self-lubricating, which due to the nature of lubing, means that it will naturally be s
Let's talk about Liar's Handshake some more.
This is easily one of my favorite exotics to run in PvP. It pairs excellently with top tree Arcstrider, Way of The Warrior.
Before I get into all of that however, let's talk about Swashbuckler. Fallout Plays did a very good job of explaining it in his video along with some damage numbers, but I'll give you a basic rundown if you don't want to watch it.
Swashbuckler is a damage increasing perk like Rampage. Unlike Rampage however,
The Zealios V2 are a well-regarded switch made by ZealPC in partnership with Gateron, which has come to rival the famous Holy Panda switches. This particular Zealio in my hands is a 62g weighted one, which is the lightest out of the four Zealios weights, those being 62g, 65g, 67g, and a hefty 78g version.
These Zealio switches feature a purple stem which with each weight, has a darker colored stem with the heavier weights sporting the deeper purples.
I bought my Zea
On this entry, GeForce RTX! And not just one thing but the whole thing. Or at least as much as possibly can remember. As with the Discussing Myth series, it's more about taking assertions or claims that people have said and poking at it, presenting an argument against the assertion or claim.
RTX is only about ray tracing
Perhaps the "RT" in "RTX" makes it confusing, but RTX is a technology feature set that encompasses what Turing can do. In addition to hardware accelerated ray t
Missed yesterday's blog post, so you get a bonus weekend post today
Yesterday, I finally acquired Luna's Howl and put it to some work in the Crucible:
Today, I'll be talking about what weapons I've paired it with and what I think of it so far.
First and foremost, I highly recommend you run hand cannon scavenger and reserve perks if you can. With Drop Mag, you burn through ammo pretty quickly. I actually ran out during a comp match last night.
Titans punch things, it's what they're known for doing, it's the main thing they do.
This build will knock a Titan out of his One Eyed Mask.
Let's start by talking about top tree Arcstrider, Way of the Warrior.
There are three perks of this subclass that I want to draw attention to:
Combination Blow. Kills with this ability trigger health regenaration and increase melee damage for a short period.
Combat Flow. Melee kills recharge your dodge ability.
It's a new week, time for another blog post. Today: Zippy Boi v2: Hunter Edition
Let's talk about the Iron Banner/Control gamemode.
Running around capturing zones and killing people to gain points is fun. It can be tough sometimes, but it is fun. Especially if you equip the right loadout for doing so.
Last time Saladin visited the tower, I perfected what I believe is my ideal loadout for the Control mode.
The parts of this loadout are fairly simple:
This is possibly the most map-specific build I've ever done. Be that as it may, it's still super fun.
The main components of this build are the Last Word hand cannon and the Orewing's Maul grenade launcher.
Let's start by talking about The Last Word:
It is a 225 RPM hand cannon featuring the Fan Fire perk: this weapon can be fired quickly and continuously. Faster reload and increased accuracy on successive hip-fire damage.
This hand cannon will 4-tap a typical G
This is just a quick post asking people never to do what this guy did:
This is an Icarus Grip mod, on a grenade launcher.
But why, Crunchy? Icarus Grips improve in-air accuracy, right? On most weapons, yes.
However, all grenade launchers are 100% accurate from the air anyway. So this is essentially a waste of an Icarus Mod that this player will never use again unless they dismantle this Orewing's Maul.
Icarus Grip is the most pointless mod you could
Going back onto the main topic of the blog though, I decided that I'm gonna use Linux for the very first time in My life on this UDOO-BOLT-V8 only! I've been using Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10 for the majority of My life which have served Me well but I figured Hey!, why not try Linux as I had similarly said above. For those are curious, I've decided to install Ubuntu for now..., but I'm gonna be doing a ton of customising which will include some daily updates he
So I've decided to main Warlock for a few weeks as I attempt to hone my skill on and improve with that class.
I discovered Transversive Steps last night. In case you don't know what those are, T-Steps are a very fun Warlock exotic boot that makes you sprint faster and reloads your equipped weapon as you do it. Some of you may have gone to the same place I did.
Immediately, out came the Parcel of Stardust and the Recluse. Why that specific combination, you ask? I'm glad you asked
