      Even Trumps campaign manager admits that Bernie would have won in a Trump vs. Sanders election. 


      There are no new faces for the Presidency. People only vote for who they know and like. Bernie Sanders is literally the most popular politician in the country. 

    3. BuckGup


      I thought you were just saying that but yeah Burnie is the most popular wow

      Bernie FTW!

    3. DrMacintosh


      Bro @themctipers 4790Ks are like $200 used.

      @Skanky Sylveon I was but then I was able to secure a Wraith Prisim cooler. 

  3. Do yourself a favor and watch Top Secret

    New CPU and motherboard - Computer Keeps Freezing!

    What drive are you using? Have you checked it for errors? Have you tried different RAM sticks/slots?

    PCIe vs USB Network Adapter

    I just bought all the parts to upgrade my rig (in signature) to an R5 2600 and I bought this little PCIe card: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00HF8K0O6/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00__o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 It's a nice looking little card and even has bluetooth 4.2 support. I'd get that over a cheap usb dongle.
  6. My Java class has these labs due on Saturdays and man I can envision so many people failing this course if they aren't super dedicated. Here is an example of one of our labs just a few weeks into the semester. 




    import java.util.Scanner;
    public class TextMsgExpander {
       public static void main(String[] args) {
          /* Type your code here. */
          Scanner scnr = new Scanner(System.in);
          String userInput;
          System.out.println("Enter text:");
          userInput = scnr.nextLine();
          System.out.println("You entered: " + userInput);
          if (userInput.indexOf("BFF") != -1) {
             userInput = userInput.replace("BFF", "best friend forever");
             System.out.println("Replaced " +"\"BFF\"" + " with " + "\"best friend forever\"" + ".");
          if (userInput.indexOf("IDK") != -1) {
             userInput = userInput.replace("IDK", "I don't know");
             System.out.println("Replaced " +"\"IDK\"" + " with " + "\"I don't know\"" + ".");
          if (userInput.indexOf("JK") != -1) {
             userInput = userInput.replace("JK", "just kidding");
             System.out.println("Replaced " +"\"JK\"" + " with " + "\"just kidding\"" + ".");
          if (userInput.indexOf("TMI") != -1) {
             userInput = userInput.replace("TMI", "too much information");
             System.out.println("Replaced " +"\"TMI\"" + " with " + "\"too much information\"" + ".");
          if (userInput.indexOf("TTYL") != -1) {
             userInput = userInput.replace("TTYL", "talk to you later");
             System.out.println("Replaced " +"\"TTYL\"" + " with " + "\"talk to you later\"" + ".");
          System.out.println("Expanded: " + userInput);

    It's actually not too difficult if you read the material and can think like a computer, but the professor has already said that most of the class isn't even doing the participation activities which anyone with very little skill could do in a few minutes.

      Seeing how popular python is now I feel like they should be teaching it instead of Java

    3. Sauron


      They do in a lot of places, it was in my first university programming course over 4 years ago. Not sure why that's not the case for him.

    4. BuckGup


      In the two places I have been it's just Java and Python later on if you go down the path of AI

  7. I removed the Verge from my Apple news and unsubscribed from them on YouTube after watching the latest WAN show coverage of the Kyle copyright strike.

      I knew about it a few days ago.

      They are garbage as far as I'm concerned. 

  8. People tell me I should upgrade my PSU.....but like PSUs are expensive, lol. 

  9. DrMacintosh

    GTX 1050 2 GB vs. R9 280x

  10. The Verge

      Steve so pretty...

    2. Tech_Dreamer


      kinda disconnected meme , but it works.

  11. How thin the bezels are has nothing to do with the fact that a decent sensor requires depth, depth that laptop displays don't have.
  12. FXAA vs. DLSS

      Just be glad it didn't rush to "if I kill all humans, no one will force me to render jagged lines"

      Does it have to do anything with some people being rough around the edges? 

    4. themctipers


      fake 4k is the same as 1440p upscaled to 4k, aka upscaled 4k

      it looks like shit where it matters (text) and it looks like standard upscaling everywhere else

  13. Assume the Ryzen 5 1600 and Ryzen 5 2600 are both $149 on Amazon. Which would you consider to be the better value? 


    Keep in mind that the 1600 includes the Wraith Spire while the 2600 includes the Wraith Stealth.

      @DrMacintosh #BrokeCollegeStudent  #FeelsBadMan  😂

    3. DrMacintosh


      Im a broke Community College Student. A broke state college students are in debt, I'm not xD 

    4. CUDAcores89


      @DrMacintosh A broke college student implies your net worth is zero.


      A POOR college student has debt to their name, thus they are really just poor.


      A broke person has assets and liabilities that place their net worth at zero.


      a poor person has more liabilites than assets. Thus their net worth is negative. 


      The working classes net worth is negative.


      the middle class is just broke. 


      Everyone above that is rich.


      Yes, you can be rich too. All you have to do is spend less than you make. It's that simple. Now you are rich.


      I would rather see you as broke than poor that's for sure. If you have to make these choices, then go with the ryzen 5 1600.

  14. Even if you could, things can always go wrong. The convince of being able to reinstall your OS easily and reliably in a few minutes is very nice.
