    Volkswagen Toolmaking Tests the World's First 3D Printed Titanium Brake Caliper

    Titanium has really poor heat transfer; the outer surface would vaporize under heavy braking, making it an ablative disk. You need a good heat transfer to prevent ablation. Steel works well, cast iron works well; Stainless steel would have the same issue as Ti. Learn some engineering; it's...

    Intel Promises to Increase Transparency in the Future

    intel is off my list until they fix KNOWN problems. I'm looking forward to a new system next year, and it will likely be all AMD for the first time in ~20 years. The last one was a Barton core XP2500M processor and an x850 video card, on an Nvidia motherboard, lol. It ran an x13.5...

    The 16xx chips are supposedly unlocked, the 26xx chips are locked. :) If I get the 26xx chip, I'll see what I can do with BCLK. :) I put a Xeon X5670 in my I7-920/X58 system, and it runs much faster and cooler than the 920. But there's an issue with the multiplier resetting to 22 at odd times...

    Quake II on Vulkan API Now Available on GitHub

    Crap! It crashes on launch. I guess I've missed some dependencies, lol. Works great in openGL or software, so it's Vulcan. Vulcan works under DOOM, so I'm betting it's the C runtime; off to M$ I go, lol.

    Quake II on Vulkan API Now Available on GitHub

    Q2 runs great on a raspberry PI, under Linux; Gotta keep the interns in line, lol. :) I wonder how the Crakwhore skins look in this release? I remember getting it to run on openGL mode on an S3 Virge card with 4MB of Vram, back about 20 years ago; after all that effort, it ran 4 frames/second...

    Teardown of the $2500 Titan RTX Video Card

    I replaced two $600 cards with a $250 card a couple of years ago, and have better performance, and less heat. There's no way I'm ever paying $2500 for a video card, lol. I'm an engineer; most performance per dollar is what keeps you employed; building a system with a $2000 processor, $1000...

    Viral Video of Glitter Bomb for Package Thieves Exposed as Partial Fake

    I'd be afraid of being sued for getting glitter in someone's eye. I'd hate to end up paying a thief for "injuring" him. :rolleyes:

    Teardown of the $2500 Titan RTX Video Card

    So, the fails on the previous 2080 generation were just really bad chips they tried to salvage by turning off some features, but the chips were really, really bad. With these cards failing pretty publicly, (previous story) maybe these chips have some flaws that don't show up until they're...

    One of Two Titan RTX Cards Defective

    What, space invaders is now "Top of the stack?" Rofl That AIW card still runs in an old PC I use to digitize old videos, it's 4:3, and old. But it still works after 10+ years, unlike any NV card I owned.

    One of Two Titan RTX Cards Defective

    No, they lied about 64 bit capture drivers for my 7800GTX. Years ago. Don't lie, don't misrepresent, and be honest. That's all I ask for. AMD did supply drivers for an all in wonder card, that I still use. Fuck the fuckers. Sorry, to be PC, it should be Hug the Huggers. (Translate that to...

    One of Two Titan RTX Cards Defective

    This seems a lot like the Win10 saga; the manufacturer is Beta testing hardware in this case. The RTX fails we've seen with the 2080 card were the beta tests for the full-up Titan cards. This is obviously a design issue at this point, as "Test Escapes" doesn't hold water here. If they can't...

    So, you like Dudes touching your balls, and you're OK with that. OK, that's lifestyle choice, but not mine. And by "getting him back" you're saying you like touching other dudes balls. Again, lifestyle choice; but if beating Queers is wrong, so is your being gay to non-gays. Don't try to...

    Former NASA Engineer Makes a Box That Tortures Package Thieves

    One of my uncles had to leave Tennessee due to rigging a booby trap involving a shotgun and an easily broken-into window; it cut a 14yo repeat burglar in half, that had a penchant for robbing my Grandma during church. Different times... I think asshole got what he deserved; judge let Uncle...

    White Hat Hacker Contacted a Man Through His Security Camera

    Factory Worker Is Impaled by 10 Steel Spikes from a Robot Arm

    This was obviously a test. After the victim survived the test, they operated to see how much effort would be required to save an enemy soldier after an attack. This is "Coming soon to a battlefield near You!" They published the pix as a cover story, and as a demo to the rest of the populace...

    They're bipolar; ssm2210's. I actually bought a book about Audio Phono Preamps, "The Sound of Silence", by Burkhard Vogel; I believe it's available online, and it has some very nice descriptive math. My main experience is more feeding high speed electronics. I've designed low noise high...

    Games used to be a story YOU unfolded; look at Quake, Q2, Halflife, et al.

Now, videogames have all these unskippable movie scenes I could...
