My Folding@home and BOINC Projects

IMPORTANT EDIT:  Link to my website is incorrect as I am migrating to a new datacentre!   Hi all! It's been a while, but boy have I been busy!  Over the last few months, I have acquired my own server!   A HP ProLiant DL380 G6 to be precise. While I will post about that separately, here I would like to show you just one of the things I am doing with it.   Scientific research! I am using Folding@Home and BOINC to allow my server to do computing for the greater good of ma

The Chiplet "Problem" with GPUs

UPDATE: I've edited this blog too many times because I always think I'm done, but then another idea comes up. *sigh* But I should be done now.   With AMD's semi-recent announcement of their server processors using the so-called "Chiplet" design, I thought it'd be a good idea to talk about how this could affect other processor types. People have pointed to GPUs being the next logical step, but I've been hesitant to jump on that and this blog is to discuss why.   An Explanation

The Journey to Health

I have failed traditional weight loss. Mostly as others due to lack of motivation and commitment. Diet is not horrible, but not great. I never took the initiative to learn to cook as a kid, even though my mom cooked constantly. So when college came around and I was free reign, I didn't take care of myself. It's taken years of mistakes to learn to manage myself better, but damage is done.  The reason I'm writing this is two fold.  1. If I expose it to criticism, I have to face it head o

Selling and Buying.

Soo to make this more clear, the rants to do with my experiance on multiple places for buying and selling. These include Ebay, LTT classified thread and Facebook/ Direct messeging.   Buying: So as a buyer their are things expected of ya, being able to purchase the product, be intrested in the product and be able to communicate with the seller if needed.   As being a buyer on Ebay three times now (positive n Negative) and a buyer here on the LTT forums i tend to be unders

The BSD 3-Clause License

Lately I've been working on a light temporal sampling algorithm that might be able to avoid some aliasing by adjusting the sampling rate. I usually do things like this strictly in MatLab, because it makes it overwhelmingly easy to build and run these kind of simulations, and then explore the results in potentially interactive graphs. But there are a few problems with that approach: The MatLab IDE is overwhelmingly slow to startup and to compile and run programs on every machine I have ever

My Top Waifu

@Cyberspirit ok, so there's my top by looks, my top by personality, and there's my first waifu that will forever hold a spot. My first waifu was Hinata Hyuuga My top by personality is a tie between Sakie Satou and Hinata Looks are a tie between later Hinata and Zero Two There are other contenders that I can't remember off hand, but those are my top right now Edit: I can't believe I left out Hestia under the personality section! that is now a three way tie

First PC Build

When did you build your first PC and what were the specs? @iLostMyXbox21 As for a fresh build from scratch it hasn't happened yet. I did frankenstein a prebuilt ACER into a full ATX gaming case with corsair 750W power supply I got for free. Don't know all the models, but it's a 4th gen i5 with 12 gb ddr3 and 1 tb ssd. Last year I tossed in a 120 gb ssd and a rx580 4gb gpu for an upgrade

AMA for fun - Post Q's Here

Not piggybacking off ANY of my peeps here, but I figured I'd do an AMA for sh*&s and giggles. Rules 1. No TOPIC is a problem, though I can't guarantee everything will be answered if it gets too personal 2. While no TOPIC is a problem, respect is required and as such, please tone down any language, no harrassment, no abusive language. Just questions and answers in nice english. 3. Do your worst! Or not, if you do it's probably too personal and won't get answered 4. I'

Why you might consider the new P600S over the Define R and S Series

UPDATE: 4/30/19 Credits to @Firewrath9 for suggestions are corrections.   I was gonna do a status update but this started getting sorta long, so...   After watching Paul's review of the case which went into much more detail than other reviews I've seen so far, I drew a strikingly large amount of similarities between this and the Define R6/S2 cases from Fractal (some of my personal favorite cases) with some notable differences. The P600S is basically the Evolv X with (dif

Second followup to the airflow mod

I had two burning questions in my head: What happens if the fan is pointing down? Are the intake fans creating much of a difference? The new configs are: Intake at 30% with the other fans at a custom fan curve Fan pointing down, not running CAM Fan pointing down, running with CAM at 50% fans So here's all the data compiled. Regarding the charts, instead of using maximum clock speed (which all of them were within 1% of each other), I used maximum tempera

What is a computer?

Let's start with the most basic of questions when it comes to programming a computer: What is a computer? It seems a silly question for a device we take for granted but it's important to understand what it is if you want to program for one.   To put simply, a computer is a calculating machine. That's it. Its sole purpose is to compute things. A computer need not be electronic either, as there were mechanical calculating machines such as Charles Babbage's Analytical Engine, with even pr

Welcome to the programming guides!

After stewing on it for a while, I decided to start a blog of guides for the budding programmer. This will be covering the basics and some intermediate topics, and if I feel like sharing something more advanced then that may crop up once in a while. This series is intended more to give a crash course on programming and concepts in general and while I may use a programming language for examples, I must emphasize the language does not matter here. The programming language is the means with which t

Follow-up to the Airflow Mod

This is a follow-up to my blog on the airflow mod I made. It was brought to my attention that the sound card might play a role in affecting how well my video card remains cool. My presumption is that it's not doing much to affect the cooling potential because the issue was moving hot air away from the video card area and that while the video card is sucking air from the rear, there was enough airflow that it wouldn't make much of a difference.   So today I decided to test whether or no

Simple mod to increase video card airflow in my build

Update time to my experiments with improving GPU temperatures and case airflow. So as a recap: I've noticed that my video card was hitting thermal limits on workloads that normally didn't in the last case it was in, a Silverstone FTZ-02 After looking at the case and thinking of the airflow pattern, I came up to this conclusion: The idea was that the case fans on the top and rear would draw the hot air (marked red) up and out. But there wasn't much airflow going there. So I stu

A taste of python automation in networking

A few personal projects I've been working on, mainly just putting together a load of useful functions in python along with the netmiko library to pull specific data from Cisco IOS devices (mainly ISRs and Catalyst, not been designed for Nexus, ASAs, other vendors yet etc..)   I've mainly been testing some open source IPAM solutions such as netbox and PHPIPAM to see if I can do some neat little tricks and I've created a few things for both solutions on the side of my job because I want

The actual post

I can't think straight today (dumped a page worth of text after going on a tangent on EFI and eGPUs) so I'll just start straight with how to install Windows, OSX, and have one more partition.   Normally it's pretty straightforward to add partitions (not sure why would anyone need to slice a disk into quarters these days with a regular windows PC), but when it comes to Bootcamp's default method of installing windows, partitioning becomes tricky because Windows Disk Management would say

Always wanted to do an AMA. Am impatient so will do so now.    Just as in Arika's AMA, 3 ways to ask a question: 1) PM me on here 2) E-mail me at rorznz@gmail.com 3) Post as a reply to this Blog entry   All questions are welcome. I have decided to follow Arika's layout and display the questions simply.

Clever anti-piracy schemes

Many companies like to protect the sales of their software by incorporating anti-piracy schemes. A lot of them fall flat, being annoying and inconvenient to use to outright dangerous and perhaps legally dubious. However, there were a few that I thought were pretty clever in that not only was it transparent to people who purchased the game legitimately, but served as frustration to pirates at the same time.   Sony's "Wobble" Detection Mechanism On the PlayStation 1 Most of this is

[RQB] How the USB Type-C retention system works

Note: This is a copypasta of a status update I did.   One of the things that has eluded me about USB Type C was its retention system. On Micro B it's easy to see; those little bumps on the top of the cable's connector are it (they go into divots in the device's end). But in Type C I couldn't see anything. So I chalked it up to either friction or those six metal bits on the end of the cable's connector.   It turns out it doesn't look like either. I found an exploded diagram of

The AMA

Hi all.   Bet you didn't know this place existed   So I've decided to run an ongoing AMA for no real reason than to let others find out more about me and I feel like I need to open up a bit more in life, and since i spend so much time here, might as well start here. It's hopefully a way to deal with my shyness RL by letting others "ask me anything" and help me build confidence, plus i still have some form of anonymity so i'm more likely to share things here that i wouldn't wi
