    What exactly is the deal with GPUs

    I hear ya. I was just comparing to the particular segment of high volitility stocks which I see so many people lose their shirts in. Trailing edge VC, pump and dump activity, etc. It's much smaller scale in the crypto world, but it's the same general premises. I never knew how it could be so...

    What exactly is the deal with GPUs

    There's a mad dash to GPU mine before the ETH DAG ends sometime in 2022. The date was pushed back twice so far, but I only hope it ends sooner than later---and even then I'm not convinced this card shortage will wane. There are a lot of people heavily invested in the pump and dump alt-coin...

    What Mouse and Keyboard Are You Using Right Now?

    Sorry for potato. Keyboard is very custom. Plans for a fully custom (6 row) ortholinear on the backburner, but for now this one is real nice. Mouse is a G203, which I quite liked at first, but after a couple years of use I'm liking it less. Might try an ergonomic next. No plans for custom, but...

    Micron Cuts DRAM and NAND Flash Output as ASP Falters

    Thanks for this refreshing bit of sense. I mean, Micron expects a certain profit margin and it just so happens that they can adjust it at will using the most basic supply and demand principles. You can't blame them for doing what works and adjusting the numbers to suit. However, putting...

    Steam Is Getting a Redesigned Library and New Events Features

    Seems reasonable. Just improving what was already there, in place. I've been wanting an integrated friends list for some time, so that's nice. Tear-away windows really need to be optional.

    DroneClash Turns Counter Drone Research Into a Sport

    Seems fun, however the most effective methods would immediately be banned in the arena for literally giving everyone in the audience cancer. i.e. High C battery + inverter + magnetrons.

    What Happens When You Water Cool an Air Cooler?

    Neat little project, but you still need to dissipate heat. Ideally, to the air so you can blow it away... Adding a water step kinda adds complication and length to the process.

    Epic's Tim Sweeney Calls Store Exclusives "Procompetitive"

    It doesn't matter how hard you rationalize your actions -- when you are trying to establish yourself in a middleman position we all know there are easy ways to abuse the role. A distributor wields enormous power in commerce and effectively gates the industry. Calling resource gating...

    PC Sales to Decline in 2019 Amid CPU Shortages, Weak GPU Market

    I'm in the same boat. I picked up this 1300X with the intention of upgrading since AMD said they were going to stick with the same socket for some time. I didn't upgrade to a a higher core count, passed on the Zen+, and I'm not sure I'll get a Zen2 either. Not because I don't want one ;) it's...

    Valve Addresses Review Bombing on Steam by Removing Them from Review Scores

    I'm guessing this doesn't detect paid/free key/influencer reviews.

    Prisoners in England to Be Taught Code

    There has got to be better hobby programmes in prison. "in order to better prepare them for the world of work." What "world of work" are they talking about?

    Steam Link Anywhere Enables Game Streaming over the Internet

    I suppose it's just another easy thing to do to pad the list of "things we do." It's just a "yeah, but why?" moment for me.

    "Uncharted" Creative Director: AAA Development "Just Doesn't Feel Sustainable"

    She's talking about interpersonal relationships at scale in the office. Not financial feasibility or market analysis. It seems to be quite a narrow view as well considering the number of asset haus studios churning out textures, models, sounds, and other assets for use in games for the past 15+...
