[D2 PvP] Double Quickdraw and Auto Rifles in PvP

I am a very firm believer in the Quickdraw perk. I believe that I can say, without a doubt, that it's my favorite perk in the game.   Some background... I like to play anti-meta outside the competitive playlist. For the purpose of this post, that means running an auto rifle. One that isn't Suros Regime. It means running an auto rifle with low recoil direction and stability stats. It means running a Halfdan-D in the Crucible.   What does running a Halfdan-D in the Crucibl

Discussing Myths: Task Manager is Broken

This is one I often see and often question about what's really going on: the idea that Task Manager is halfway broken and what it reports is inaccurate and shouldn't be trusted. Instead, trust some other program! The reason why this assertion puzzles me is that it's a system tool that Microsoft readily makes available. I'm pretty certain as well that companies, especially major hardware manufacturers, makes sure that Task Manager in Windows reports at least something resembling what they're desi

The Ooblets problem: When hatred goes a bit too far

At this point, you already know my stance on the Epic Games Store. It's not worth repeating but to sum it up, it's a very bare-laden store that utilizes a questionable-at-best tactic in order to catch up quickly to Valve's Steam, the current market leader.    Whilst I've not been a fan of AAA releases going Epic Exclusive, I've usually left an exception for most indies, provided some conditions are met.    Take Ooblets, the latest indie title headed by 2 partners to be going

Discussing Myths: The Intro Post

Since I seem to talk about assertions that people seem to throw around left and right, I thought I'd start (yet) another blog series, Discussing Myths, where I take an assertion and explain why it's a myth. Or at the very least, spreading more light on it so people know what's going on beyond the surface.   So for an introduction post, I figure a shotgun approach to various assertions with shorter responses are in order. If you have more you want me to look at, feel free to drop a repl

10 Programming Languages RANKED

This is just a fun thing of 10 programming languages ranked. Random, and you might not even know them. 10 - Python - Good for beginners, has tons of use, BUT: Slowest language, worst syntax, has less uses than it claims 9 - C - Much better than python except not beginner friendly and is slowly being killed out by C++ 8 - C++ - Speaking of which this is just a more complex C, but nicer in my opinion 7 - F# - FUCK R is what F# stands for. F# is great for data science. Fuck R. 6 - D -

Syntatical

How and why I made Syntatical (an NPM package that changes how you write JavaScript) Basics of Syntatical: Goal:  The initial goal was to make an NPM package that changed how JavaScript is written. Not to make it "easier" or "weirder", just a different way to write it. How it works: Syntactical basically just puts JavaScript code into functions. Making multi-line functions one-line. It also makes console.log shorter, I did this because I hate using console.log() to log every

Packaging for PyPI

How to PROPERLY Make and Package a PyPI module First thing is first: Python This is a case you are making a PYTHON module and unless you WANT to go into the nitty gritty of compilers and binaries for lets say JavaScript, stick with Python files.    Proper folder-ing This is how your folder should be set up (with files   Creating the actual functionality of the package Creating the package just requires code that does SOMETHING.

Yet another AMA

I've been stewing on this for a while (and I kind of didn't want to stomp on @Arika S's) but I figured... why not go for it? So here's the AMA if you want to ask me a question, any question! Yes you can ask anything and I will answer. But just so you're aware of the "rules" about this: The answer that I give may not be the answer you want. Until it gets added to this post, I'll accept the question. But once the question is added to this post, I will ignore future repeats of that que

Well guys, yet another super super late blog... Most of you already know I fell asleep at my PC last night.   All of our participants are seeing themselves in the trenches, stalemated with one another, unable to pass through no mans land in order to break the deadlock.   In first place we have the king @Den-Fi with 30.7m points, @miker07 isnt too far behind the mark there with 28.2m points, if only he could fine a little more power he may even be able to knock the king from t

How does the CPU/GPU bottleneck work?

The title might be a little strange to anyone who's remotely familiar with performance bottlenecks. But rather than try to explain things on a higher level, where all of the CPU and GPU usage comparisons are done, this explains on a lower level. That is, not only the what is going on, but why it happens. How Do Performance Bottlenecks work? To understand how performance bottlenecks, particularly for games, it's important to understand the general flow of games from a programming standp

Process for gathering video card data when analyzing application behavior, pt. 2

There was one bit I should add from this last blog: Once you've gathered up the data, how do you use it? The biggest trouble with PerfMon in the way it gathers GPU data is, while it can do per-process data gathering, it doesn't actually capture the process you're interested in unless it's already running. While that's fine and all for observing it without logging, creating a Data Collector Set that captures the process is impossible. PerfMon uses Process IDs, or PIDs, and the game's PID wi

Gene Silencing Treatments - Days of Future Past.

Many of you will have seen the new treatment trialled for porphyria - a condition which is a result of a large buildup of porphyrins. Heam is a protein that is a constituent of haemoglobin, a notable component of our red blood cells that utilises an iron ion to carry oxygen. Heam is composed of an iron ion and porphyrin components. In the porphyria there is an imbalance of the porphyrin constituents due to a mutation in the enzymes converting the various porphyrins to needed types. What we get i
