    Taja got a reaction from Dr. Historic Low in Witcher 3 100fps?   
    1080p FOR SURE. 1440p I would guess yes too, but maybe you have to tweak a few settings.
    Also im considering hairworks to be off or at least not maxed, because it just cuts so many fps that its never worth it.

    Taja got a reaction from Ithanul in Cyberpunk 2077 pre-order on Steam!   
    I will get it on GOG, more money for CDPR and you get the non drm version.
     
    Also good to see regional pricing, that means a lot to me. I dont mind preordering this game, because I will play it no matter what. But I will wait when its near launch to pre-order.

    You can DIE from the nasty shock. OP is really lucky if he messed with faulty capacitors without even knowing what they are and nothing bad happened

    Taja got a reaction from dgsddfgdfhgs in How do you pronounce "M.2" ?   
    I say m dot two and I HATE IT.
    There is no reason to say it that way (well, there is the dot but also you really dont have to say it), but every techtuber says it like that so it just became burned into my brain.
     
    But nothing bothers me more than the way Riley says OLED.
    Also, why people say LED as "el ay dee" and not just led? But when saying OLED they do say oled instead of "o el ay dee"? Mysteries of humanity.

    Taja got a reaction from chckovsky in Game of Thrones Season 8 question...   
    1-7 is not based on the books. Up to season 5 it was, but iirc things started diverging on season 5 itself.
     
    Nowadays, martin himself is not happy with the show.. but if im not wrong, the producers know the ending, but the path is where things went sideways.
     
    To me, books are canon and the show is not, simple as that

    Taja got a reaction from Sauron in Single, Unemployed Better "Gamers”   
    In e-sports, women and men can compete in the same teams (because its not a physical sport) and in dota there are ZERO women that play in a real pro level.
    I think that will change, and thats good, just like the South American scene is growing internationally (Im brazilian and very happy to see a brazilian team going to most majors, and even if they lose most of the times, its still an evolution).
     
    The main problem IMO is that the new generation of "gamer girls" is not ready yet. Im 23 and most of the women I grew up with didnt play (or dont until today) - gaming was a male activity, so most women didnt grew up gaming (like most males), but nowadays this is changing rapidly.
     
    In the end, its all math: some research shows that 50% of gamers are female, but they dont take into account the AMOUNT of time they play (daily/weekly or whatever), the amount of time they have been playing (since 6yo? since 20yo?) and if they are playing competitive games. I would guess that in competitive games, balancing by gameplay TIME, it would still be 98%+ men.

    Taja reacted to yian88 in Single, Unemployed Better "Gamers”   
    Please i see this everywhere, pointless comparison between women and men when they are slightly better at something.
    You could find 10000 things men are better at than women but i wont and we shouldnt care.
    Both men and women can do the same things just as good if they dedicate themselves to it, except physical activities and sports.
    Men and women do think differently due to biology yes, which makes us have very different personalities and interests but as i said if both men and women tried hard enough they would be almost equal at any task.
     
    Would you enjoy to see tons of threads starting with "men are way better than women at...", i dont want to see that because its pointless and generates conflict between men and women like feminists like to do.

    LTT didnt get it YET because they are canadian, most likely.

    I agree that merch can be a "ez money" strat from popular ppl, but it can also be VERY good.
    I never bought merch, but I would buy merch that is neutral and has good quality, to help some creator and at the same time get something nice for myself.

    Taja reacted to purplemonkeydishwasher in Riley and James need to go   
    Honestly, these two guys are killing my, and many others, enjoyment of LTT.
     
    Riley knows nothing about tech. He demonstrates this again and again with his apperances on the main channel. He knows absolutely nothing about PCs, and I've no idea what he is supposed to add to the channel, other than being really irritating. He's not funny. He doesn't know what he's talking about. So why did you hire him? Oh yeah, nepitism. Brilliant.
     
    James is just a child. I mean what he is 35? And he acts like he's 15. It's utterly pathetic. HE is utterly pathetic The guy is just an irritating little sh*t, whom ruins every single video he is involved with. The guy is an utter embarrassment to the channel.
     
    Whomever is in charge of new hires, needs to to take a serious look at themselves, because they are failing massively.

    Taja reacted to Sauron in Is there gender inequality in IT or cyber security?   
    Yes, it's true.
    It's hard to measure something like that and it would depend on the company, but the statistics seem to indicate that it is - the sex distribution in IT management positions is lower for women than that in the IT industry in general. Google, for instance, has a workforce consisting of about 30% women, but only about 20% of management positions are held by women (though not everyone who works at google is a computer scientist or engineer, so IT specific data may vary).
    Apparently, only 12% of engineers at google are female.
     
    Stats I referenced: https://www.techrepublic.com/article/the-state-of-women-in-technology-15-data-points-you-should-know/
    it's an article from 2014, so current numbers may vary slightly. I think it still offers a good overview.
     
    In the CS classes I followed and in all universities I've been to, the number of girls has been drastically inferior to the number of guys, though the ratio seems to become a bit better when you get to the doctorate stage. In my first year of university, studying IT Engineering, out of 120 students only 10 were female. I'm in Germany for an Erasmus at the moment and I have only seen a couple of girls in classes of 50+ people, so clearly it's not a situation that is limited to my local area.
     
    As for why this is, in my opinion it has a lot to do with the stereotypes about computer science; girls are taught that it's a "boys' thing" and most media tends to show computer scientists as asocial and insufferable men who often exhibit some degree of misogyny. Even things like computer games, which are many people's first gateway into CS, are very often disproportionally marketed towards males even though girls can have just as much fun with them - as a kid I had some great mario kart races with my sister though she later lost interest, probably because of social expectations. Since you're a woman you probably experienced at least some of this growing up, though you may not have given it much weight.
     
    With that said, I wouldn't let that discourage me if I were you; CS is a varied field and there are definitely plenty of opportunities to shine, even as a woman.
