  1. Can't tell difference between G-Sync and Vsync

    Some people have already mentioned it, but if you are getting a solid 60fps you wont notice any difference as when at the monitors refresh rate limit it functions the same as vsync (experience wise, not in terms of how it is technically accomplished). the difference is that if you drop to 59fps, instead of throwing away 29 frames every second and skipping down to 30fps (it displays each frame twice since without adaptive sync the monitor is stuck at 60hz), it just adjusts your monitor to 59hz. essentially a 29 fps improvement. This is about the simplest explanation and skips over lots and over simplifies just about everything but you see the main function of adaptive sync tech. try to play a demanding game at intensive settings where you can get 60fps sometimes but not all the time and you can watch vsync snap back and forth between 30 and 60fps
  2. Need a New really long desk for computer PC Setup

    I finally upgraded my old 2009 21" monitor to a 34" ultrawide and when i first set it up within arms reach i felt like I was going to hurl playing rocket league. I don't know how you keep your lunch down with your whole vision filled!
  3. 3 Reasons to NOT Buy a $400 Laptop

    Dropping matlab on the 800 laptop was kind of a strange choice, most matlab work falls more into the workstation category rather than small bang for the buck notebook category. I mean the base install of matlab is over $2000 and if all you were going to use was the base install you would probably be using octave instead.
  4. 711 million emails have been captured by a massive spambot

    no, he is mad that he finally understood the simple concept that emails being search that haven't been previously pwned are NOT "data that has been leaked." He realised he was wrong and is now being defensively angry. All you can do is trust that troy is both: not malicious, and impervious to being hacked.
  5. HTML GUI Editor / PDF forms

    https://www.google.com/webdesigner/ its a mix of drag and drop and WYSIWYG. It's about as close as you can get to what you want as far as I know.
  6. What are you going to do with the result of this multiplication?
  7. Making a div clickable for changing another element

    You need the parenthesis after the function to actually call it. like onClick="showDiv()"
  8. Why does Reddit hate furries so much?

    Not even remotely true. over 45% of the people in the world have working access to the internet, that would make 16% of the entire world "furries." Also, it's because you people do very weird things... how is that not self apparent?
  9. The rubber nubbins for fans are really nice. They stop any vibration noise from transferring to the case/rad/thing they are attached to. Generally, if you have an unbalanced fan, tightening it on really hard makes the computer hum, and leaving it loose makes a sharper rattle sound. putting rubber grommets or little bits of soft foam or rubber between the fans and the screw holes before screwing them in will quiet them down. make them snug not tight.
  10. How to progress in Java without getting bored to death?

    browse github and find a project in a different language that really sparks your interest. try to recreate it in java. Any language without an interesting program to write is 'boring' its what you do with it that becomes exciting. https://github.com/explore The best way to learn a new language/framework is just to make something and learn along the way, once you have all of the concepts and bits of jargon you have picked up you can start to understand the articles and tutorials aimed at advanced concepts without getting stuck on the weird language.
  11. Whats linux like?

    Dirt Rally, Witcher 1 & 2, Rocket league, Dota 2, CSGO, CIV 6, Portal 2, Bioshock Infinite, Metro Last Light, Cities Skylines, and terraria make up a non exhaustive list of the Linux supported games in my steam library alone. To say that you can't game on Linux is a flat out lie. more and more games are coming out with Linux support because the tooling makes it much easier than it used to be. Unity and Unreal 4 both support building for Linux. the new Davinci resolve works flawlessly on Linux. IMO linux is best suited for very computer literate people and very computer illiterate people. Its not so great for people in between who use computers all the time but don't understand how they work, those people know just enough to be dangerous to their own computers. Fortunately, if you fall into that middle category, if you the time, you can easily become very computer literate by using Linux!
  12. CMD file cache?

    https://github.com/Microsoft/BashOnWindows/issues/1788 points to this https://wpdev.uservoice.com/forums/266908-command-prompt-console-bash-on-ubuntu-on-windo/suggestions/16108045-opencl-cuda-gpu-support blender renderer uses cuda, they must have been using blender for windows or used it in cpu only mode. I have scoured the internet all day and haven't found a single person with this issue. "more myfile.py" and "notepad myfile.py" on the same command prompt without switching directories shows two different files. python seems to be running the version that more sees. Some serious dark magic here. Switching back to linux tomorrow.
  13. CMD file cache?

    Unfortunately the bash terminal doesn't have access to the GPU and I need cuda support to run my program. and for whatever reason, Microsoft's cutting edge neural network toolkit (I'm using CNTK) doesn't support powershell. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/cognitive-toolkit/setup-windows-binary-script If you run the .bat from inside powershell it just says Please execute this script from inside a regular Windows command prompt. I was just using more to see inside the file, the problem is that python itself sees the incorrect file contents. any gui based editor (I tried notepad, VScode, VS community) all see the correct file contents. I have been making do by working in vscode and copy pasting the code to a jupyter notebook to execute for now but this is driving me bonkers.
  14. CMD file cache?

    CMD is not a linux shell but it is most definitely a terminal/command line. you can run python or any windows command from cmd, it just seems to use the wrong version of the file. I used 'more' which is a shitty version of less. but just running "python myfile.py" prints out that it is using the default 20000, the file no longer has a single occurence of 20000 in it. i changed it, saved it and python/more still show it as 20000.
  15. CMD file cache?

    After over a year exclusively using linux and many years of almost exclusively using linux I decided to give windows 10 a try to see how it is. Long story short, CMD appears to not see changes I am making to files. opening the same python file from CMD in notepad shows the correct file contents but if I run it, it still prints the old unedited message. if I open the file on the command line with the more command the file shows the old contents before my recent save as if it cached the file. this has persisted across a reboot. Does anyone have any experience with this issue? edit: I attached a screenshot to show an example. CMD on the left, notepad (launched from CMD to ensure that it was the same file) on the right.
