    Epic Games Denies Client Spying Accusations

    Scanning the list of processes on start up would be necessary for Epic or Steam to prevent the program from running multiple instances, yes? I don't see the harm there. Scraping files from your competitors software seems not as cool though.

    Netflix Brings Dragon's Dogma and Other Japanese Anime to the Platform

    If you read past the first sentence in the wikipedia article you are quoting from, it says "Outside Japan, anime refers specifically to animation from Japan or as a Japanese-disseminated animation style often characterized by colorful graphics, vibrant characters and fantastical themes."...

    Diablo Is Now Available for Purchase on GOG

    Ok, so I bought it and took a run at it this weekend, and I made about an hour on the dot. It hasn't aged especially well. However, I took Majinhoju's suggestion and installed the Hell 2 mod, and that really fixed most of my gripes. You can highlight fallen objects, everyone moved to the...

    Diablo Is Now Available for Purchase on GOG

    This is a definite purchase from me, and although D2 is the pinnacle of the series, I'm looking forward to experiencing Diablo again.

    Friend building new Ryzen 2950x system. DOA no matter what.

    I’d bet a dollar he had most the WC for the threadripper and is waiting for a new intel block. Sometimes people know just enough to be dangerous.

    Intel Wants to Take You on a Graphics Odyssey

    Years away? So probably still on 14nm then. I make a joke, relax.

    FFXV Benchmark: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti on Par with GTX 1070, Titan X

    Because it creates these huge margins between similar products and it makes for a better article. Journalistic integrity in the tech industry is fleeting at best. Exceptions do exist.

    Here Are The Metro Exodus Unlock Times

    Maybe the next gen RTX cards and Metro on Steam will land around the same time? That would be a nice coincidence. I don't want to replace my 1070Ti yet.

    Mercury Research Says AMD Made Gains in the x86 Market

    For Oracle at least, the issue was that the licences based on the processor formula definitely favored Intel due to Intel's higher IPC. You take the total of all cores across all sockets and multiply it by a core licencing factor and voila that's how many licences you need. AMD and Intel x86...

    Watch Robots and Humans Work Together to Create the 2019 Ford Ranger

    It doesn’t look professional I agree, but if the work is good I guess it doesn’t matter. Maybe Ford doesn’t want to provide uniforms. I was more surprised at the lack of bump caps, lots of stuff moving around overhead it seems like.

    IBM HR Made Me Lie to US Government, Says Axed VP in Age-Discrimination Legal Row

    Why would he go to the effort to provide these facts when you already know that what you are saying makes no sense? You can't lump benefit and pension plans in with your dues and just say 'oh the union is stealing my monies'. You literally have no idea what you are talking about.

    IBM HR Made Me Lie to US Government, Says Axed VP in Age-Discrimination Legal Row

    I’m sorry you had that experience. I’m certain that dues didn’t cause a plant to shut down, dues are paid by members. If it’s inflated wages or poor workmanship then sure, blame the union. Blame the members for wanting too large a share of the profits, or blame them for resorting to the lowest...

    IBM HR Made Me Lie to US Government, Says Axed VP in Age-Discrimination Legal Row

    This can be an unintended consequence of seniority protections, I agree. Your visual observation of your city employees is unconvincing but sure, ok. And the fact that you think the teachers unions are the reason for the decay of the public school system is beyond understanding. Perhaps they...

    IBM HR Made Me Lie to US Government, Says Axed VP in Age-Discrimination Legal Row

    Any union is what you make it, that much I’d agree. Not every guy in a union goes to the Jimmy Hoffa School for Organized Labor. There’s a lot of problems that can occur, especially in really large organizations, but every member has a voice. The concept of ‘every member works as fast as the...

    IBM HR Made Me Lie to US Government, Says Axed VP in Age-Discrimination Legal Row

    Labor racketeering did not birth unions, labor abuses birthed unions. I’m not even talking about child labor and the like during the industrial revolution in Britain. I’m talking the good ole USA, where safety precautions didn’t exist, hours and pay were unfair, workers were payed in company...

    IBM HR Made Me Lie to US Government, Says Axed VP in Age-Discrimination Legal Row

    If only there were some kind of common interest groups of people that worked together to protect each other from these kinds of practices. I heard there used to be but they died out with the coal industry.

    Sold a 1080Ti on ebay 55 days ago...

    Could be as simple as a failing power supply, and the old card he's testing with is less demanding. There are a dozen possibilities, and it's not OP's responsibility to offer him technical support. Help with the RMA if you want, but that is the gamble of buying used. EDIT: Basically I'm...

    Bitcoin Tumbles Again, Loses a Quarter of Its Value during Thanksgiving Week

    I agree with you. The fact that bitcoins ‘value’ is based solely on scarcity and the speculation of its future value make it pretty worthless as a currency. If you think of bitcoin as a commodity it makes slightly more sense. It’s a bit like oil, prices can fluctuate pretty wildly over time...

    Breakthrough Extends the Life of Aluminium-Air Batteries

    Agreed, this is a refinement of an existing battery type, not some miracle breakthrough. We might actually see this one in use.

    New Vegas Moves to New California

    From 6-8 to 15-30? So from 6 to 30? Or are the hours of 9 to 14 specifically excluded? If you play for 9 hours you are committed to play at least 6 more. It’s like someone is just rambling off numbers.

    Boxed ATI Rage Fury MAXX

    I think the question was MORE than 2, and if that is the case, the VooDoo 6000 may be the only one? There were a few obscure dual cards, like the Obsidian X-24 (dual Voodoo 2 cards on a single PCB), but I can't find anything with 3 or more GPUs.

    AMD and NVIDIA Reveal Plans to Lower the Impact of Tariffs on Video Cards

    I'm glad some people understand who is actually paying the tariff, because there is a certain population that seems to think the US government is taxing foreign nations and that it's free money.

    Elon Musk's Flamethrower Tested

    NVIDIA RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti Unclothed @ [H]

    If the performance between the 2080 and the 2080Ti isn't super absurd, I'd probably settle for the 2080. 1100CAD vs 1600CAD based on the preorder pricing.

    First RTX 2080 Benchmarks Hit the Web with DLSS

    Kyle, you could nearly double the performance of your bar graphs if you printed them on 11x17. Sure you’ll need a wide format printer, and you’ll never use it for anything else, but I think it’s worth it.

    For what it’s worth I voted yes, because it’s probably best for [H] as a business. It’s nice to know they didn’t stay mad, I didn’t think that was their style.

    AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX & 2950X CPU Review @ [H]

    There was a lot of information in this review to process in one reading, so I'll probably have to give it another go through, but I am initially left wondering what excuses I can make to myself to justify a 2950X purchase. Furthermore, the honest tone and writing for the review itself was...

    3dfx Voodoo 5 5500 (my first 3dfx card)

    Fuck yeah! Haha sorry I couldn’t find the pass through cable, I don’t know where it went to. I think I’ve got lots of IDE shit around if you need anything, though it’s probably not worth shipping it to you from Canada.

    Nintendo Sues Console ROM Sites for “Mass” Copyright Infringement

    A long long time ago I used to help moderate the forums at CherryROMs, and Nintendo would very often use legal threats to have the roms removed. The downloads were disabled so often, moderating was mostly mocking people who came onto the forums looking for the roms. I was kind of a dick to...

    3dfx Voodoo 5 5500 (my first 3dfx card)

    I think so. I had it on a socket 7 setup, but I can’t think of any reason it wouldn’t work on a slocket setup, it’s not like the pci spec changed. Edit: only thing I can think of is trying to pass the PCI VooDoo through an AGP card, I never tried that. You might actually need to conjure up a 2d...

    3dfx Voodoo 5 5500 (my first 3dfx card)

    Right on! This might sound lame, but the VooDoo 1 was really the biggest change, and is the one I’m most curious to see if it still boots. I had a GeForce 2 and the 5500 was less impressive since there was quality competition. I’m glad they ended up in good hands ;)
