  1. My Molecular report is finally done. Time to celebrate with some good ol' No 7 and a fresh pot of coffee. No point going to bed at this point

    1. CUDA_Cores


      When I saw your first status update, it was 4am here?


      What time is it where you are and you've been working how long exactly?

    2. revsilverspine


      I have no idea how long it's taken. Currently 1AM and I think I started sometime yesterday at around 9PM, after already having worked on the report for about 16 hours last weekend

  2. For non-gaming is the AMD FX-6300 acceptable

    for strict non-gaming it should be just fine, but i'm not sure what the i5-650's specs are or how they stack up against eachother. keep in mind that you would need a gpu alongside the 6300
  3. I've got a lab report due tomorrow with a 3 page limit.

    in its current form, mine has 17 pages. I cut down on the math in it and it's down to 7. Now I gotta cut down on the theoretical bit. Can't make it less than 5 pages if I want it to not look like a report written for ants.

    also, the report needa to be handwritten. Yay.

      lol. AFAIK the Nokia and Blackberry ones needed a stylus or something like that. And yeah, you should probs get to the report. It's very strange they don't let you type it though. 

    3. revsilverspine


      By not letting us type it they make sure we at least go through the subject while we write about it. Were it a typed report I'd wager 99.9% would just copy/paste off of the .pdf they provide for each experiment

  4. monday morning and I already want to chuck a few of my colleagues out the window because they're insuferable dipshits. I can't wait to see them fail their exams and either drop out or redo the entire year

      There's this kid in class that is literally living in slow-mo.

      By the time I took 30 sets of 50 oscillation data points he took... 6.

      That's an hours worth of work.

      My math notes: 18 pages on average (written during the 2 hour course). His? 5 pages total.


      How tf is he a student here?

    3. Ethocreeper


      i my brothers have a student literally slo-mo even the way that he speaks, walks and reacts is in slo-mo

    4. revsilverspine


      We're 47 (hehe) in the first year.

      Maybe 35 are going to pass the year from what I can see so far and I've had people share my point of view.

      Gonna be funny seeing them not pass their exams

  5. you've been silent for a while

    1. revsilverspine


      I don't really have time for, well, anything.

      I'm at the Uni from ~8AM to 8PM pretty much every day and when I'm at home I binge on games and studying

  6. 2 Motherboards 1 PC

    Unless they're blade server motherboards with the corresponding backplane, you can't connect them.
  7. My first set of homework in over 6 years just got graded!

    Got a 10*0.7*π for my Thermodynamics homework and 9*0.3*π for Newtonian Mechanics.


    That's pretty freakin' good, all things considered.

    1. Lurick



      I can't understand this!

      I'm out!

    2. revsilverspine


      Oh, I just realized I didn't explain the grading system.


      Homeowrk is individual and once completed is e-mailed to the professor. First to get the mail sent gets G*1*π, where G is the grade. Second gets G*0.8*π and so on until 0.1π. After that it's 1*e, 0.9*e etc.

  8. I Knew It. Intel Doesn't Want To Support Kaby Lake On Z370

    Intel doing something dickish? Whoda thunk
  9. Only has one lab today and after that we went for a coffee.

    We kinda sorta maybe possibly have a CDN framework that was written on napkins.


  10. R5 1600 cooling.

    It'll get you to around 3.7. Definitely not to 4.
  11. I'd say it's fake. Changing the CPU model in Task Manager is a trivial regedit task
  12. facebook is acting real weird

    people can't find me and if they do it takes 2 hours to add me.

    someone added me to a group and no notification about it so far.


  13. Have a couple hours to kill between classes.

    During General Physics the professor went on a tangent about nuclear fusion. My colleagues were looking at him confused and I was like: "Uuu, I know this!"

  14. I think I might take a page out of DIY Perks' book and turn my old Asus laptop into a desktop.

    How well do dual cores hold up these days for light tasks (mostly office stuff, no gaming, maybe some occasional media consumption)?

      Not looking for major performance. Just the odd youtube video every now and then, nothing more

    3. imreloadin


      I had a T7200 and that thing was pretty....slow. Should be fine for the occasional YouTube video though.

    4. revsilverspine


      Like I said. I only need it for pure office use. My NUC shat itself and I don't really want to be using my main rig when I'm studying

  15. Help me crack this code

    AAAAAAAALrighty then. Finally in front of a computer for the first time in the past 20-something hours. After some light research: http://www.biologydiscussion.com/genetics/cryptogram-of-dna-genetics/65167 Well doesn't this look oddly familiar? Problem is that we only have 3 singlet codes and 33 possible triplet codes. Another problem is that each DNA strand is based on 4 bases, not 3. This could be a complete dead end moar light research: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triple-stranded_DNA Triple stranded DNA is possible, though it seems it also involves 4 singlets.
