    Deus Voltage reacted to Aochan in Social Justice advocates are running a campaign to "cancel" Richard Stallman (again) and the whole Free Software Foundation board for good measure   
    Why do the modern right has to refer to companies and organizations in a free market protecting their interests by distancing from troubled individuals as "cancelling" by "social justice warriors"? It's a free country and you're not free from consequences of your actions.

    I just simply wanted to point that there's plenty of actual evidence of him being a misogynist and sexually harassing women. I don't care enough about him to dig into the rest of it, though, and sure, there are undoubtedly people who are also coming up with false claims in the hopes of getting attention -- but then again, that happens for everything, it seems, nowadays.

    Seems to me like there is plenty of basis, like e.g. RMS insisting on handing out his "romance cards" and harassing women, even when told not to; he just moved outside the conference to do it instead of doing it indoors.

    Deus Voltage reacted to Commodus in Facebook exec says in hidden-cam discussion that Facebook and Google need to be broken up, and Zuckerberg stopped   
    Can we just put a moratorium on using Project Veritas as a source? When it's not outright lying or attempting entrapment, it's frequently taking footage out of context or otherwise manipulating it. Even if this is perfectly accurate (it's not, see below)... I'd rather not give any more air to an organization that's dishonest as a matter of course.
     
    As it stands, "something called CRISPR" is not exactly shocking or revelatory. That's CRISPR-Cas9 (there are other methods, this is the most common), a well-known, enzyme-based gene editing technique. It has its limitations, and there's already a lot of ethical scrutiny over its use. It has the potential to cure diseases (particularly genetically inherited ones) and end famine. So, as usual, Veritas isn't providing the real story.

    My good man, you usually post pretty reliable sources. You dropped the ball on this one, Veritas is as trustworthy/reputable as Alex Jones/WCCFTech for news/information. Did you get hacked or something?

    sounds like tin foil hat type stuff that has been said for decades. Also, this is project veritas, they can be completely ignore as they are about as credible as a tabloid magazine.
    Seriously “No king in the history of the world has been the ruler of two billion people, but Mark Zuckerberg is,” this sounds like the ranting of a crazy guy who did too many drugs. Its gibberish.

    Deus Voltage reacted to mikegray in Nvidia Unhackable RTX 3060 anti-miners driver has just been hacked (this time for real)   
    This pisses me off, seriously.
     
    If you're a miner, and you intend to buy entire warehouses of these things, problem solved. Buy 10k of them, run them in a fairly closed system in your warehouse at the North Pole with this particular driver, and rake in cash until the market crashes.
     
    OTOH, if you've a gamer who wants to make up a little money on a card you probably had to overpay for, you're going to want to update your drivers for games, security, etc. But if you want to mine, you're stuck with this one driver. 
     
    Perfect example of why the program doesn't benefit the gamers Nvidia said they wanted to help.

    Deus Voltage reacted to Sauron in Star Citizen studio accused by staff for making them work during Texas winter storm.   
    Too bad that's typically not the case with vital infrastructure. Privatized systems like US healthcare are significantly more expensive overall than comparable state sponsored systems in other countries, often with worse average outcomes as well. Even if you believe the free market is beneficial it simply doesn't work when "consumers" don't have an alternative, as is the case with infrastructure. If the choice is between bad service and no service you're just going to take the bad service, no matter how bad it is.

    Deus Voltage reacted to PianoPlayer88Key in [Intel, come on!] Intel FUDing Ryzen 4000 Performance on Battery   
    Sooo..... Intel says laptops with AMD CPUs perform worse on battery vs AC power, while implying laptops with their CPUs don't do that?
     
    Hmm...
     
    Here's a screenshot after a few Cinebench runs on my laptop, with an Intel CPU, plugged into A/C power...

     
    And here's the benchmarks re-run after unplugging the laptop (the only thing I changed, plus restarting a few apps)...

     
     
    And they want to tell me that laptops with their CPUs don't throttle hard on battery?

    I do have to say, this thread proves that there's a massive divide in how we view content providers. In a time like the coronavirus, it would generally be a time of understanding everything to actually figure out what the hell's going on, but as distrust has wrecked any proper way to understand it, there's a split between absolutely tooth-and-nail believing what fact-checkers wanna put out and being massively skeptical about everything. I err on the skepticism more than I do the believing everything, but at the same time, all that does is prove that the way that institutions have made people lose trust in them has fucked everyone up.

    no, the science community will be. the social media companies will simply be directing people towards the science and away from fake news.

    Power and control helps to foster order, some people are not taught it from a young age so need to be taught it when older in life, so here it is.

    A woman looking for reparations to compensate for emotional trauma after sexual abuse is not revenge, it's logic.
    Ok no more politics for today.

    Nope they where everywhere. I'm not saying everyone was saying that, but it was VERY common, or at least being very vocal, which in perception terms is just as important.
     
    Also GN has their 5600x video out, not sure if it's been added to the OP yet so dropping it here in case.
