  7. f*ck. slow roll detroit was cancelled today due to the heat.


    Two weeks ago it was cancelled because of the cold, not it's been cancelled because of the heat. Why can't people just man up?


    I was there last week and it was so slow I was having trouble balancing for the first two miles. The average speed was 5 miles an hour. Yet the heat is what cancelled it? We get like, barely any exercise and don't sweat at all.

  8. Today
  9. I still need story ideas and inspiration... >;(

      Or you can write a story about someone whose arms and legs all have a mind and personality of their own and it is a daily struggle to get everyone to cooperate and function as a complete body. At the end you find out the the story is actually a story within a story where the writer is a parent who is struggling to manage their marriage and two three kids

  10. Thanks dad.

  11. Nvidia's fathers day tweet.

      I'd much rather a real dog but, if it can perfectly emulate a real dog than I might be down but anyways NVidia gets a *thumbs up* from me for having dogs in it

      weird thing is AI isn't capable of showing affection or love, it's dispassionate , this is just an ideological image & perspective on how things are in our heads. robotic dog conforming to instructions out of observation in a enclosed space, rather than having an independent real connection to another human being.

      that AI dog will probably cost $3000.



    Alright - here's the actual price breakdown for the build. Please keep in mind that I had some of these parts before Autumn 2017 - which was before I even had this PC (in fact, that would be when I had my first hand-built PC - the X5472 build).With that out of the way, let's see the shopping list, starting from 2018:

    • Generic Silver Thermal Compound                                            -     1.99 USD
    • Dell Precision T7500 (1x Xeon X5650 + 12GB DDR3)              - 170.00 USD
    • Dell Precision (T7500) H236F CPU/RAM Riser Board                -  95.00 USD
    • 24GB (6x 4GB) DDR3-1333 PC3-10600 (REG+ECC) RAM       -  50.00 USD
    • Intel Xeon X5650 SLBV3 Processor                                           -   20.95 USD
    • Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS SB0350                             -  17.49 USD
    • 24GB (6x 4GB) DDR3-1333 PC3-10600 (REG+ECC) RAM       -  50.00 USD

    All other parts that you see, I already had in my inventory - which aided in reducing the cost. They include:

    • nVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti (25.00 USD - eBay,2017)
    • nVIDIA GeForce GT 520 (17.00 USD - eBay,2017)
    • Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2 SB0240 (00.00 - given to me in 2017)
    • 4TB Seagate Central 5900rpm HDD (10.00 USD - yard sale)
    • 500GB Seagate 5400rpm HDD (13.00 USD - eBay,2017)
    • 320GB Seagate Barracuda 7200rpm HDD (9.99 USD - eBay,2017)

    The totals are as follows:

    • 403.44 USD for purchases from 2018 alone
    • 74.99 USD for purchases from 2017 alone
    • 478.43 USD for all current parts, excluding future CPU+GPU purchase(s)

    What do ya think so far?...

    1. TopHatProductions115





      Could grab 2 for 80 if I make a good enough Offer ;) 558.43 USD overall. The only thing left is the GPU...

      How did they find out about the daughter?

    4. Mr.Meerkat


      @ScratchCat Because someone works for the goverment ;) 

  16. Nice PC specs man. Great to see somebody who favours using hardware til its unusable rather than throwing it away once it can't run everything on ultra.

  17. Hello 😁

    1. ScratchCat


      I would be surprised if she has time to respond.

  23. Hey - could someone help me price my build (Dell Precision T7500)? It'll have two variants - the state it's currently in, and its intended 'final form'. Here are my current spec's:

    • CPU :: 2x Intel Xeon X5650's
    • RAM :: 34GB DDR3-1333 PC3-10600 (REG/ECC)
    • GPU :: nVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti + GT 520
    • SFX :: Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2 SB0240
    • PSU :: Dell W301G H1100EF-00
    • _OS :: Windows 10 Enterprise + Windows Server 2016 Datacenter
    • STR :: 4TB Seagate Central 5900rpm + 500GB Seagate 5400rpm HDD + 320GB Seagate Barracuda 7200rpm HDD

    Here are the specs for its 'final form':

    • CPU :: 2x Intel Xeon X5680's
    • RAM :: 48GB DDR3-1333 PC3-10600 (REG/ECC)
    • GPU :: nVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (6GB) + GT 520
    • SFX :: Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2 SB0240 + Audigy 2 ZS SB0350
    • PSU :: Dell W301G H1100EF-00
    • _OS :: Windows 10 Enterprise + Windows Server 2016 Datacenter
    • STR :: PCI-e SSD (at least 256GB capacity) + 4TB Seagate Central 5900rpm + 500GB Seagate 5400rpm HDD + 320GB Seagate Barracuda 7200rpm HDD

    I'd like to hear expected prices for both, just to see if I'm doing okay with sourcing of my parts thus far...


    Please head here when you've replied...

  24. Unfortunately I was only able to fly once today. In the afternoon, the winds picked up a little where the wind sock was fully horizontal (was around 25kts, 22kts when I landed earlier) and was gusting up to 40kts. Dammit, the winds doesn't seem to be dying down either so...rip flying tomorrow? :/ 


    On a side note, I've found out that if I went private cardiologist, I can see one next Tuesday late-afternoon. I guess its now all down to whether I get slotted into the 'normal' waiting list on the NHS (around 11 weeks) or 'emergency' list (around 2-3 weeks). 

    1. OJTheAviator


      Good luck!

    2. Mr.Meerkat


      @OJTheAviator Hopefully I get slotted into 'emergency' list as it would save me £1K~, which I have not budgeted for at all as I never thought I'd need to see a damn cardiologist.

  25. Have an FX 8350 in the mail on the way for $15. Supposedly it just has some bent pins. Nothing I haven't fixed before. If it works I'll be stoked! :D If not, well at least it'll make a nice desk ornament. ;) 

    1. iamdarkyoshi


      Oh come on, thats SO EASY to fix.

    2. savagepain


      why dont you do a giveaway for the people less fortunate on the forums 

    3. MEC-777


      @iamdarkyoshi I'm not sure if that is in fact what's wrong with it. I hope that's all it is. 


      @savagepain This may end up being what I use for the next while. There's a possibility I might have to sell my main gaming rig. I am one of the less fortunate on the forums, financially speaking. :S
