    Neftex reacted to Stahlmann in Canada to follow Australia's lead in taxing Facebook for news links, gov't says they won't be intimidated by Facebook's threats   
    I still don't really get it. Why should google pay news sites to have their links come up in the search results? Google is the reason for the majority of their traffic to begin with. Could google not just blacklist news sites so they don't come up? Can someone explain to me why this would make any sense? Sounds to me like the news sites "biting the hand that's feeing them".

    Neftex got a reaction from dalekphalm in CD Projekt Red ask Nexus Mods to remove Keanu Reeves sex mod - but issue a misleading statement as to why   
    1) this is factually wrong in many cases, read about software licensing.
    2) youre making mountain out of molehill, cdpr simply asked for removal and nexus complied. the reason was understable and nexus was reasonable.
    3) they all know the mod will remain available somewhere, they just both understand removing the mod was ethically good choice

    Neftex reacted to Syfes in CD Projekt Red ask Nexus Mods to remove Keanu Reeves sex mod - but issue a misleading statement as to why   
    Okay was the 4 page litany in the original post about the legality and whatnot really necessary? As far as I understand they sent a simple request to Nexus, not an agressive demand and it doesn't sound like anyone at any time threatened anyone else with legal actions. And it doesn't sound like CDPR'S message was intended to cover any legal bases but was simply a short message towards the public explaining why they made such a request of nexus.
     
    I'm alright with calling people and companies out when they're in the wrong, but this just feels like you're looking for fire where there isn't even smoke.

    Neftex got a reaction from Kilrah in Palit send me a BIOS file that has broken my 3070   
    why did you even want to update?
    then why did you not listen?
     
    every good guide on bios flashing tells you to save the old bios first.
    "long story short" doesnt really tell us much, you might have fucked up and given the support wrong hardware information or the support fucked up
    you can ask around forums and provide the most accurate details of your card, maybe someone can get you the original bios

    i dont get your analogy, heres example - streaming the walking dead (game) theres barely any interaction between the streamer and the game, its like youre watching a movie. the viewer on stream gets all the content out of that game without even playing it, meaning hes unlikely to buy it for themselves

    Neftex reacted to HairlessMonkeyBoy in AMD is confident there won't be availability issues with the RX 6000 series when it launches   
    This doesn't necessarily mean that there will be good supply. You folks aren't looking at the other side of the equation.
     
    Perhaps the demand will be low.

    Neftex got a reaction from SpaceGhostC2C in AV-Comparatives: Antivirus programs in 2020 has gotten better in detecting stalkerware   
    nice deflection
     
    if youre looking at this source (av comparatives), "real world test" shows exact same detection rate and compromise rate for avast, avg and microsoft. difference is only 2 more false positives for avast and avg. "malware protection test" shows avast and avg better than microsoft. "performance test" shows again avast and avg outperforming microsoft.

    Neftex reacted to dalekphalm in AV-Comparatives: Antivirus programs in 2020 has gotten better in detecting stalkerware   
    My main dig at both AVG and Avast is not their performance at anti-virus protection, but rather their utter bloated mess now with additional “features”, and the fact that they nag you like crazy to upgrade to the paid versions. 
     
    You can tweak them to minimize some of the nagging but they’ve just gotten worse and worse in terms of user experience. 
     
    But if you can stand/ignore all of that, they do a decent job of protecting your computer.

    yes, it's wrong in the humanities aspect. would you apply the same literal kind of anti-discrimination to USB drives plugged into a computer?

    Neftex reacted to BuckGup in Github changes branching terminology.   
    I don't really care one way or another how they label things I'm just confused as the term master and slave has no racial attachment to it. You can be any race and be a master and/or slave. If it had the prefix white attached to it I would see a big problem but it doesn't.

    the bottom config is bad, youre stealing air from the gpu cooler
     
    the top 2 stacked fans probably wont help at all, if theres space for fan above the cpu block, thats where i would put it

    3rd gen Ryzen does not OC well as these chips pretty well provide the best performance right out of the box, nor is traditional OC'ing really something I would recommend, I have found that I have gotten the most performance out of my memory. Look at this as a new way to OC. Instead of adjusting the CPU you play around with memory voltage, frequency and timings. 
     
    IF a CPU overclock is something of interest then the best way to do so is keeping the voltage low, set an offset, and adjust the boost frequency via PBO with the Ryzen Master software. In the past I have always OC'd my CPU's but after extensive research on 3rd gen Ryzen behavior I have deiced to not bother at all, I have instead OC'd my 3200MHz memory to 3466MHz and tightened up my timings, I got a good performance boost this way. 
     
    Good read on voltage issues with the new Ryzen CPU’s: (And why I recommend low voltage)

    As for which CPU to get, (assuming USD) the extra $30 is not worth it in my opinion, it is better suited towards getting faster RAM, I recommend a 3600MHz CL16 kit.
