    Chett_Manly got a reaction from LAwLz in Richard Stallman of GNU leaves MIT email leaks   
    That is not how blacklisting works. Anyone who works with him will be smeared a pedophile and blacklisted as well. His career is over. That his incredibly libertarian views on sexuality have nothing at all to do with software makes no difference.
     
    This is interesting piece by one of the people who got him removed from MIT. https://medium.com/@selamie/remove-richard-stallman-appendix-a-a7e41e784f88
     
    I particularly like how she embraces that this is a blacklisting for wrong think, by starting with "1. Richard Stallman has problematic opinions." Then notice how at the end she veers off into other far left issues that MIT has failed to appease her on.
     
    Tech is ruled by leftwing people who think and act like Stalinists now. There is no future in it for anyone who commits the sin of wrong think.

    Chett_Manly reacted to RafaPolit in PCI Encryption/Decryption Controller on Ryzen 3900x, Asus Strix 570-E   
    Thanks.  Had same problem, had installed the driver from ASUS on a B450-f Gaming, and had the same un-recognized hardware.  Installing the chip directly from AMD solved the issue.

    Chett_Manly got a reaction from Ryan_Vickers in Honey Extension - Does it ever feel unethical to you?   
    I've been using the Honey extension for a few weeks now. For most things it seems to just give me the coupons I already got in an e-mail or advertised on the site. Which is great.
     
    Yet then there is this $20 coupon I keep getting at Safeway from it. A coupon Safeway has never sent me, and I cannot find anywhere. Yet it works. Which gave me this feeling that I am somehow pulling one over on Safeway, that I have somehow gotten this secret code that I am not supposed to have and using it to cheat them of $20 a week. I mean who gives out an unlimited use coupon of $20 off any order no strings attached?
     
    What if the code is only for employees, and it says so on the employee handout that had it, would Honey be committing some sort of fraud offering it? Woud I for using it? I do not know what circumstances it was given out, but certainly suspect that it was not for general public use.
     
    I guess the question is, is it unethical to use coupons you were not supposed to receive?

    Chett_Manly got a reaction from Ryan_Vickers in nvidia 436.02 drivers, draws inspiration from AMD, Intel   
    I tried turning on ultra low latency and played some Battlefield, then I turned it off, and played again. I cannot tell the difference. Would make for an interesting LTT video, can anyone tell the difference in a blind test for Nvidia and AMD.
     
    I did have GSync on, if that does make any difference.

    If the business accepts the coupon then it's on them, is the way I see it.
     
    Employee coupons etc. in my experience almost always require some kind of verification that you actually work at the place in question. The only exception I've found is things like periodic "friends and family" discounts where an employee grabs a book of coupons (or a coupon code) and gives them to friends and family. Someone COULD just post that code out for a while.

    Chett_Manly got a reaction from SirStephenH in Private Internet Access Internal Problems? - Post is titled "Revealing The PrivateInternetAccess TRUTH!"   
    So its an anonymous post, SUPPOSEDLY by an employee, and the allegation amounts to whining about his boss being too demanding, spending money on a nightclub and having people sign non competes and NDAs for payment?
     
    Yeah I don't care. Even if it was true. If its against your labor laws, take them to court. Otherwise QUIT.

    Chett_Manly reacted to Oshino Shinobu in Effective memory clock   
    That's the actual/physical speed. Effective speed is when DDR and other factors are accounted for. 
     
    GDDR4 and higher (I believe, it may be true for others as well) performs 4 operations per cycle. If the actual clock speed of the RAM is 1000MHz, the effective clock speed is 4000MHz. 
     
    There's some confusion, as it actually has three different clock speeds that can be quoted. Different programs show different things. Manufactures will pretty much always quote the effective clock speed, which is the actual clock speed x4. Most system monitor and overclocking programs will show the actual clock speed, which is multiplied by 4 to get the effective clock speed. There are also some, however, that show another clock speed, which is half that of the effective speed. This is a clock speed that accounts for how GDDR RAM works, but does not account for DDR.
     
    I have a longer post somewhere that explains the RAM clockspeeds in more detail. I'll see if I can dig it up.
     
    EDIT: Can't find it. There's some details on it on the GDDR5 Wiki page. It's the parts that cover CK and WCK. For the most part, you don't need to know it, but there's a common misconception that it works in the same way as standard DDR RAM.

    Chett_Manly reacted to Spotty in Delete   
    How much cash are you talking? Police won't normally take fingerprints for something like this unless it was a violent crime where someone was badly injured/killed or if it was a large amount (10s of thousands). If you're missing $50 they won't care.
    Even if they do bring in forensics unless they have your family and girlfriends fingerprints on record it will be useless if you suspect them. Police won't be able to force them to provide their fingerprints without reason to suspect them or reason to charge and process them. They can't just go on a witch hunt processing the fingerprints of a bunch of people you might suspect to find the culprit.
     
    Fingerprints do not prove someone committed a crime. All fingerprints do is say that a person at some point in time touched where there fingerprints are located. Since you're suspecting people who live with you and who have access to your apartment, even if you did find their fingerprints on the box it would not prove that they took the money. They could easily explain their fingerprints on the box by saying that they moved the box while cleaning, or something similar.

    Break up with her. Regardless if she took it or not, you suspect that she would steal from you. Either she's stealing from you or there's a lack of respect and trust in the relationship.

    Chett_Manly got a reaction from Trik'Stari in German Union suing YouTube for billions over unfair conditions for Creators   
    I am growing more sympathetic to their arguments every week. People start making videos on YouTube, they have a contract with YouTube, Terms of Service, they abide by it, they grow their channel, they invest in it, they make money off it, it becomes their career, it makes YouTube a ton of money as well. Then one day some bluecheckmark on Twitter whines and suddenly their channel which provided their income, which put a roof over their head and food in their child's mouth, which took years to build is stripped away, without warning, with no recourse, no way to gain it back, no alternative in the marketplace due to YouTube's monopoly.
     
    YouTube sets itself up as being a place where you invest time and follow the rules you can have it be your career. They advertise it as such. The courts needs to provide a solution to dealing with YouTube as a creator who invested their time into YouTube only to be destroyed by YouTube with no recourse. YouTube is providing people full time employment, they advertise the platform as a way to make money, they are the ones selling that ad space and paying the creators, they should be held accountable.

    Chett_Manly got a reaction from dalekphalm in Ford Demos F-150 Electric Prototype, Has it Pull a 1 Million Pound Train   
    Why 5-10x? I think you, and the battery swap people, are dramatically overestimating the daily mileage a work truck needs. If you are doing 5-6 jobs a day in the local area, you still aren't racking up much more than a 100 miles. Overnight charging and a range of 300 miles will likely suit the needs of most light duty truck jobs. You are going from your home/office to your work site to supply pick up back to a work site, back to home/office. That's most light duty truck jobs, its not interstate travel. 
     
    And while no technology is going to grant us a 5x-10x increase in capacity anytime soon, graphene ball technology may well give us a 40-50% increase in capacity in the next few years, enabling Ford to sell an electric F-150 with a range above 500 miles, which also enabling even faster charging, possibly even giving you the ability to charge over 100 miles per 10 minutes with an almost empty battery.

    Chett_Manly got a reaction from Bananasplit_00 in US DOJ launching another antitrust probe into big tech   
    Google has a monopoly in search, in advertising, and uses those anti-competitively to boost other products to near monopolies, as it has done with YouTube, which they then used to cement their Browser monopoly by creating a subpar experience in YouTube for non Google browsers.
     
    Google is nothing but anti-competitive practices.
     
    I hope it is broken up.

    Chett_Manly reacted to goto10 in What did you do with your Ryzen or Intel stock cooler?   
    not used or second hand, no, it was oem, tray cpus, they seem to buy them by the hundreds, are units meant to be used by system integrators, not sold per unit so they dont have boxes for the cpu
     
    perhaps you never bought a oem cpu on a tray, it looks like this
     

     
    for some reason they had the right heatsink for it on a oem box
     
    i bought it because it is cheaper and it came without the heatsink that i dont need, i have a cooler master tx3 evo
     
    is not a great cooler, but uses the old mounting system from the old amd cpus and is quiet, something most stock coolers dont offer

    I've got a box of stock Intel coolers, mostly 775 though so pretty much useless now. Sometimes I use the fans for things, sometimes I do find situations where I need them, often they just sit in a box. They *can* be used for other purposes if you drill holes and tap threads or use thermal epoxy. I've seen them used to cool high power LED's in custom built lights.
