  1. Is this a low blow? Perhaps it is, but as been explained here, it is very much a real world test of how scams in the wild are run. IMO it makes little sense to complain about a company baiting you when the example it was trying to simulate, actual scammers, hold absolutely no punches in trying to trick people to doing their bidding.
  2. Nuclear reactors commonly use water to water to water cooling.
  3. If I wire a WC loop to a full bathtub with a massive radiator in the bottom, does that count as passive?
  4. Oh, how the mighty have fallen... To me, this is solid evidence that nobody with half a brain cell should create or join cults on the basis of some arbitrary principles such as FOSS. Let me remind you that there has been a string of very questionable behavior inside the scope of this kind of mindset.
  5. I am sorry, but that is not how it works here. Have you ever heard the burden of proof? How about you prove to us that this maliciously out of context "marketing double talk and rhetoric" bunch of hot air is even applicable to this topic. There is no need for me to present anything, as I am not the one making the original claims, and a lot of people have already made very concrete points that you in your rose tinted glasses have chosen to ignore. Your dismissals of actually on-point data is not going to help you.
  6. Should I mention the double irony of the name KFConsloe? Not only is KFC a brand reference to Kentucky Fried Chicken, but it also refers to the three different units of measuring temperature (Kelvin, Fahrenheit, Celsius)
  7. The main issue with this so-called "information" that you have presented is that you have presented them in a way that is intentionally and maliciously dismissive of the context and relation to the actual subject matter Uh-huh... what a nice way to twist someone's else words into something they aren't. Not only is this accusation insanely petty and completely unwarranted, but is also factually inaccurate and once again shows everyone your complete disregard and dis-concern for anything that may be outside your bubble of confirmation biases.
  8. You really need to stop projecting, because that accusation will be turned around and used against you. Instead of conflating objectively irrelevant things, maybe try to put out information as is, if you have any? And if you are going to pin me as a "fanboy" just for calling out your silly stunt there, then you have already proven to me at least that you have zero intent of arguing much of anything in good faith.
  9. Well then... now I certainly don't feel any less conflicted... The recent topic of mutual empathy is an interesting one, and it highlights how important it is to take a step back, remove yourself from any emotional attachment to people or companies, and to try to look at the bigger picture of what is actually happening.
  10. I have so many mixed feelings about this. The discontinuation will negatively affect the reception to RHEL On the other hand, I do not see too much value of RHEL or SEUS over the likes of BSD. On the other hand, this hurts the intended goal (in the eyes of many diehard Linux/FOSS fanboys such as Eli) of Linux coming to take over Windows in usage shares. On the other hand, there REALLY needs to be standardization in the Linux world if the above hope and dream has any hope at all of coming to fruition.
  11. My point is that there are valid questions to be raised on the integrity of HUB, but at the same time also valid questions on the impact and petiness of nVidia's decision here in the bigger picture.
  12. I don't even know what "side" to take, as there is an unbelievable amount of nuance to the story, and I have seen a lot of very weak and fallacious arguments made in this very thread.
  13. IDK, my experience with Adobe products tells me that it is very poorly optimized for... anything, basically. Hell, the reason why 10-bit is even such a big deal in Nvidia-land is the fact that Adobe refuses to upgrade their APIs from OpenGL, where 10bit is locked to Quadros, to DirectX and Vulkan, where 10bit is supported on GeForce line
  14. Okay, fine, but my previous statement stands: Remember, calling facts opinions does not ever make the facts opinions, no matter what nonsense you pull.
  15. I am going to ignore everything else you said, as it is too unbelievably out of touch with the conversation and reality to bother responding to. But this I will need to highlight: What exactly have you brought for citations? I have been looking at your post history in this thread, and you have not delivered anything of merit. So... again, stop bullshitting everyone and talk to us straight, please.
  16. I do not like this line of thinking at all. There are no "opinions" about this, so get off your god damn high horse and look at the actual matters for just a minute. This idea of mining for the profits falls into the exact same line of thinking that many scalpers have. "hey we bought it, so it is fair. Nobody has a right to complain about how much we choose to sell the cards for hurr durr capitalism". This I will absolutely not ever entertain, and this kind of ultra-linear thinking is what got us into so many nightmares in the tech world alone. Doing it for the sci
  17. Okay... putting aside the fact that one of the citations here is a very well known liar and charlatan (seriously, if you take MLID seriously in any regard, shame on you!), and putting aside the fact that the questionable reputation of the claim made would make this entire news and discussion moot... Can someone explain to me what is the benefit is nowadays of bitcoin mining? If you are doing it for profits, then congrats, you are no better than the damn scalpers many of us are having to deal with. If you are doing it for the science of it, there are much better and much more straig
  18. About the dropping of 32-bit support; bloody took them long enough.
  19. Neat. Now I need to build a script to automate the process for the other computers in my home.
  20. Huh... That means then for those who were happy enough with 2GB or 4GB RAM can now set up a couple of ramdisks. It might be a PITA given how Linux and RPi works, but it will certainly be a lot faster than the overclocked speed of the SD card, and even of the newish USB3 IO.
  21. You claim that "Look at reality and you will get your hard evidence" and yet none of this is hard evidence. Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence; hell, all of this data is little more than loose extrapolations made from connecting the wrong dots together.
  22. So then what happens when support of some of the vital software that they use ceases for the operating system they are stuck in, and any inquiry about bugs or support gets met by "if you want further support, please update your operating system"? That also screws them over, and at that point updating the OS and losing access to some of the software they need presents far less cost in downtime, monetary, or support. Again, it costs so much more to train new students and programmers to use ancient languages than to use languages that are up to date or remain very usable.
  23. But that is the thing about investments; long term costs need to also be taken into account. 6-8 figure digits is nothing in comparison to the costs and downtime risks of maintaining some relics for an extended period of time. That is the point: they SAVE money by updating their systems in quick successions, they just don't do it because they are so afraid of spending a few thousand more as an installation cost. To add, it needs new recruits which means constantly training people to use the ancient languages, which... well, to quote Prince EA: Are you preparing them for the future, or the past
  24. Stop evading his question and fucking give a direct answer. That attitude is only further proving his jab against you, and further proving to everyone else why you should not be trusted with any claim.
