    Kiwibot Self Destructs in Spectacular Fashion on the UC Berkeley Campus

    There is no such thing as "minor flames". You would think people in CA would understand that simple concept since half their state was on fire this year. Clearly this robot went mental and they had to hit the "fail safe".

    Looking for budget gpu

    If you are ok with used cards, keep an eye out for used 1070's. Some are hitting the $200 mark or slightly below. These are likely mined on, but, are getting dumped on the market in quantities that are really pushing prices down. One of those would drive your monitor fine and you can add a...

    I'm thinking with single processors having lots of cores now

    this is a rare and super niche area of hobbyist computing. The SLI of CPU's but for different reasons. I was looking at another 2P to replace mine but settled on a TR instead.

    Town Rejects Comcast and Chooses to Build Its Own Broadband Network

    And when they do they may be able to negotiate a better deal for the people. I hope it works out for them. I had so-so service from Charter/TWC and used the shitty city service in that market to keep the pricing on my service reasonable. What the people won't have to do is pay $150 a month for...

    Town Rejects Comcast and Chooses to Build Its Own Broadband Network

    The Right is calling for competition in this space, not just the entitled Leftists. Where the private sector won't go the public sector may. So, yeah, good for the city that's building their own. Lots of good stories out there where it's working. Some bad. Just those same leftist elites who...

    Town Rejects Comcast and Chooses to Build Its Own Broadband Network

    Good for the town and its people. Comcast is digging their own grave in this space. So is Cox and others with their data caps. They predicted streaming a long time ago and made a preemptive strike. Time for consumers to strike back by going to the dark side and turning internet service over to...

    Humble Bundle: 12 months for $99

    Depends on the publisher/distributor but if it's on Steam you get a Steam code. Sometimes they offer games Steam doesn't distribute and you have to redeem them on that publisher/distributor site (Overwatch on Blizzard, iirc) . Some of the small indie stuff or extras you have to download direct...

    MSI MEG X399 Creation Threadripper Motherboard Review @ [H]

    I ended up with this in my TR build. Tried a couple of ASUS MB's during the Black Friday sales but both had issues. Splurged a bit more on this one and it's worked well. Thanks for a good review as it helped the decision making process.

    Bethesda Bans Fallout 76 Players for Life after Shocking In-Game Homophobic Attack

    This, like any entertainment platform, is a horrible and incorrect place to push any social agenda to the masses expecting everyone to always drink the koolaid and go along with your worldview. Take the rest of this to the Soapbox.

    Bethesda Bans Fallout 76 Players for Life after Shocking In-Game Homophobic Attack

    From what I recall, the half naked player complimented the hicc's outfit - told him it was cute, or something. You know, a completely made up verbal exchange that would never take place IRL if a strait redneck walked, unknowingly, into a gay camping group asking to barter for some stuff. The...

    Bethesda Bans Fallout 76 Players for Life after Shocking In-Game Homophobic Attack

    As far as PC gaming goes, I think we saw the big change in online behavior when the entrance barrier dropped low enough for kids to join in. In the early days most PC online gamers were adults and behaved as adults, for the most part. The kids that were part of our community were often...

    Bethesda may owe all the players of this title refunds, but none due to this incident. All the parties involved acted fine, post incident. A player reported offensive conduct that violated the TOS and showed proof. Bethesda investigated and took action based on their TOS. The offending...

    Bethesda is free to do what they like. Good for them. If you are going to have rules then you need to abide by them. I don't think I read anyone disagreeing with the action Bethesda took - just largely amused by the whole thing.

    Bethesda Bans Fallout 76 Players for Life after Shocking In-Game Homophobic Attack

    Maybe people who are so sensitive shouldn't be playing a game about killing people at all. Their G rated world view does not fit in the 17+ Mature rating for the game. Or, more likely, the online rating should be strait up AO or there should be a level above that - like YWBO.

    Bethesda Bans Fallout 76 Players for Life after Shocking In-Game Homophobic Attack

    Let's see- They play a game where murder is acceptable, even encouraged, but, an opinion of anothers in game behavior is a problem? Because it may hurt their feelings that their lifestyle and/or real life "identity" is not condoned by others? Yes, it is sad. Mute, leave the server, move the...

    That's exactly what we need, a large AAA game with a giant AAA budget that is 100% safe for every single sort of person on the planet. Safe Space - The Game. Maybe something like watching paint dry on a safe space wall - choose your color. No mention of what the wall is made of or how big it...

    No doubt. In other news, Hasbro bans chess players for being racist. White always going first and trying to kill the black king and all. We should start a video game SJW thread. I'm sorry, but if I were playing CS:GO and three of five on your team looked like the Village People I'm going to...

    A little help for my next DC build

    The transplant went off without a hitch. The initial problem with the Zenith is not evident on the Strix, so looks like we're in business. The memory slot issue on the Zenith did hold this setup back a bit, ~7% or so. Maybe more in memory intensive tasks. Simple stock to stock comparison...

    That ROG Strix board is what I have scheduled for delivery today to swap for the Zenith. Price/performance for new parts is crazy good. If AMD keeps doing this I'm going to keep throwing money at them.

    A little help for my next DC build

    This thread is nostalgic for me. I have an SR-2 and started thinking about its successor a few years ago. I put X5670's in it, dialed them to 4.2 and left them there until the X5690's got cheap a few years ago. I, too, started looking at a 2P system for various reasons, mainly, since this is my...

    Craigslist finds

    Nice. Reminds me of one of my best ever CL deals for a Logitech G710(+) keyboard. I was looking for a used KB for ~$50 a couple years ago. Found one that came with an i7 2600k system. It had a Cooler Master HAF X case, 16GB ram, don't recall the MB. I don't recall the GFX card. It also had an...

    TR 1950x $410 NE through eBay

    I'm hoping this base system (MB) will last as long as my SR2, which is still going. So, I'm going to splurge on the MB. Hoping to drop a 2950X in it next year(?) or when they have them for ~$400ish. Then maybe the next gen? If the MB lasts 2-3 cpu's it'll be worth $500ish.
