  1. This feels insanely 1984 esque and there is no valid reason for taking it down. This is the RIAA testing what they can get away with in court.
  2. Uh oh.

     

    F@H client on macOS Catalina might not like R9 M370X.

     

    REEEEEE. Muh potato GCN card wants to compute.

      The M370X just does it for the meme.

    Idk why the points earned thing is being dumb. But good news is 800K PPD.

    So far today and yesterday I've racked up 11 out of the 40 required WUs for this event. The biggest challenge will be the 20 active days. So far I have 2.

      It still doesn't help that you have a ridiculous amount of GPUs and PCs at your disposal.

      All I have is one 5700 XT.

      I just overclocked it a lot.

      I like what @yaboistar said - its a scientific research thing first...dick measuring contest second

       

      I cant keep up with @Den-Fi either, even with 5 GPUs I have avail running, but for me its about participating with LTT team and a couple badges :)

  4. Wargaming gave me some World Of Warships free codes so I'm gonna give you guys it.

     

    Be nice and share :P.

      Got 2 containers. Just 400 Coal and 1k fxp and some flags. Free coal is free coal!

  5. As far as I understand the problem, the model works fine it's just that drivers can't complete enough jobs per hour to earn above minimum wage. Which sounds suspiciously like the fares in California are too cheap through the Uber app. I don't know what percentage of a fare Uber takes but I'm going to hazard a guess that it's at least 20%.
  6. Our dear friend Cali has just been given the reverse Uno card.

     

     

  7. Uber is allegedly bullying their drivers, previously classified as self-employed, into voting YES for California's Proposition 22 Ballot Initiative to re-classify Uber style Drivers as self-employed. The Verge reports that Uber drivers are suing Uber over this alleged bullying. The drivers are complaining that Uber is bombarding their smartphones with messages encouraging them to vote for Propositon 22 and telling them what would happen if it doesn't pass. The claim being made by Uber Drivers against Uber is that California law prohibits Uber from trying to influence their employees to vote a particular way. It is expected that if Proposition 22 fails to pass, Uber drivers in the state of California could lose their jobs permanently as Uber is unwilling and unable to pay self-employed drivers as employees. I'm honestly not surprised, and frankly I was expecting Uber to use mafioso style tactics like "It'd be a shame if something happened to your job because you didn't vote for Prop 22" or something in that style. Obviously it would need to be more lowkey but Uber really needs to stop this for their own sake. Anyways, good for Uber giving California the reverse Uno card.

  8. It looks like we're gonna get a repeat of the free school meals during Summer thing, which is to say Marcus Rashford, a professional football player, is going to make the government U-turn and change their mind on letting children starve over Christmas.

     

    Why we need a football player to lobby the government to not let children starve is beyond me. They shouldn't have to be told to do it, they should just be doing it.

     

    At least he's willing to lobby on behalf of the people on this issue for free I guess. 🤷‍♂️

      Oh yay, can't wait for Nicky to use this as fuel for indyref2 😆

      Anyway, it seems as SNP is already kicking Tory MSP asses for voting against it, even if it doesn't affect Scotland directly (Scotland has already made the necessary plans for it). 

       

      Mind you, I would agree with some statements made by the conservatives. We're in a vicious cycle where more people than ever are seeking welfare and giving them even more welfare might not be the correct step forward.

  9. And I was proven wrong.

      @minibois They weren't officially announced nor officially cancelled.

       

      It's just behind the scenes people knew they existed because of leaks and this is not officially confirmed but leaked or rumored.

      oh, ok.

       

      I don't pay much attention to rumors anymore.

    4. Mateyyy
  10. I'm not gonna lie it looks like Asus has discontinued the 1660Ti and 2060 versions of the G14.

     

    In the UK the big retailers are only stocking the 1650 version now.

  12. I personally prefer the term "Submarine Talks" rather than "Tunnel Talks". Cos you're talking out of sight and out of mind and taking the breath out of the media.

     

     

  13. Not An Apple Fan talked about this last week and basically said VideoCardz were making this up.
  14. "Australian Style Departure" . The amount of mental gymnastics required to come to that name for No Deal is painful.
