    Emberstone got a reaction from Trik'Stari in Show off your old and retro computer parts   
    After thinking a little bit about the age of my own system, I started to wonder what other experiences people have had with their computers/components that simply won't die, or simply won't stop being awesome despite their age.
     
    For context, my PC is on the X58 platform and is rocking 3x4GB of DDR3 in triple channel and an i7-980X overclocked to 4.0 GHz. As with my Q6600 + SLI 8800 GT rig before it, I expected this computer to start falling behind a year or two after its birth, but graphics card aside, it hasn't. The 980X, a seven-year-old CPU, continues to be faithful to this day. Cities: Skylines runs great and Doom never seems to drop below 120 fps. The GTX 1070 is allowed to reach max GPU usage and the CPU barely breaks a sweat. If Ryzen doesn't provide a big upgrade at a decent price, this computer will continue to live on for the years to come assuming nothing breaks.
     
    I couldn't be happier with this thing, to the point where I have an emotional attachment to it and the level of performance it provides after all these years. I've had it for so long (since early 2010), I don't want to see it go when the time comes!
     
    So yeah, do any of you folks have any old, reliable hardware you've fallen in love with over the years?

    Emberstone got a reaction from parthm in Mobile manufacturers show ads in ui- realme,xiaomi,samsung.   
    My Galaxy S9 is showing ads in the built-in Samsung Weather app. It isn't just the cheap phones.
     
    This right here is reason enough for me to deal with not having a headphone jack and switch back to an iPhone. Fuck getting ads on a flagship device.

    If I have to pay to have more than 3 friends and myself in a server after the advent of Discord, I consider this DOA.

    Water is wet and sun is hot. Of course the point of phishing attacks is to make people think the wrong way. Tell us something we don't know lmao.

    He's been in a few videos/done work for Linus.

    Emberstone got a reaction from Ben17 in Louis Rossmann's take on LTX   
    Considering Louis has done a fair bit for Linus up to this point, if I were in his position I'd be a bit insulted that Linus isn't throwing me a bone. It's like none of that work matters anymore.
     
    But since none of us are Louis or Linus, we're all lacking context/info surrounding what was actually said or the state of LMG's finances, so it's all pretty moot anyway. Others were tossing their two cents, so I figured I would, too.

    Emberstone reacted to DrMacintosh in Elder Scrolls No More - New US Bill to proposed to ban Infinite Scrolling and Autoplay   
    Contact the people who authored the bill and tell them to get a real job. They obviously don't know how to be a public servant. 
     
    Public servants work for us, we tell them what to do.

    Emberstone got a reaction from Lahn in Louis Rossmann's take on LTX   
    Pretty sure the issue was that he would be one of the "star Youtubers" and not just a regular attendee going to an event solely to enjoy it. As he put it, it's business. If I had to leave my own business to be part of someone else's, I'd expect to be compensated in some fashion, especially because Louis doesn't have any kind of brand to promote or booth to market out.
     
    Considering he'd be losing several thousand dollars from trip costs and unfinished repairs back at the shop, all in the end to throw a bone to someone else's event/business (LMG), I think it's a bit short sighted to say this is simply "self centered."

    i am not impressed with amd so far for gaming... i even think for pure gaming a 9400+fast ram beats something like the 3600 in price and performance, which is sad.

    Emberstone reacted to Sauron in Big Tech to Potentially Lose Immunity for user created content in US   
    I'm for this - Youtube and Facebook profit off of user generated content, therefore they are responsible for said content.
     
    Maybe there can be some middle ground where creators can self-flag their content as "potentially inflammatory" so Youtube/Facebook won't show ads on it and relinquish any responsibility on the views expressed and work more or less as it does now, taking down videos only if required by law or if they are in violation of some basic terms of service; on the other hand there would be a stricter scrutiny on channels that choose to be monetized.
    I agree 100%.
    Dunno, every other form of hosting and publishing that makes a profit off of the content it promotes is held responsible for what that content expresses. Why should internet hosting services be any different?

    Also far better he sell it (even if it's a paltry sum) than to shutter the doors and lose the important resource.
