    NCASE M1: a crowdfunded Mini-ITX case (updates in first post)

    Hey guys, I'm planning a build in an NCASE M1 (old hardware, air-cooled, already exists; case and iceman pump/res are ordered), but to continue planning some details, I need two distances: bottom of case to one-slot GPU (aka, waterblocked GPU) to see what radiators fit with what fans and how...

    Temporal circuit of macroscale dynamic brain activity supports human consciousness

    Did I mention I've been playing Shadowrun for a decade and am very much looking forward to CP'77? XD

    The Elder Scrolls 6 could be heading into full production as Bethesda begins hiring spree

    Most people don't bash Bethesda/FO67 for the technical issues at launch, but for how that was handled. And how the fans have been handled. Broken collector's edition promises. Basically scams when it came to merchandise Re-introducing bugs that had been fixed, then posing they don't exist...

    One more thing artificial intelligence can beat you at ...

    I'm saying we have no grounds to talk about souls, free will, spirits or other things outside philosophy. Rationally, there's no place for fanatic grandstanding like what was posted. THAT's what I'm saying. PS: No, I don't believe in destiny.

    Crytek's lawsuit over Star Citizen using Cryengine continues heating up

    Not entirely sure, I think 2016. I think I was roughly "a year in" when the Super Hornet got sold in the "Weekend Warrior" Package (which I got to my existing Aurora). So yes, I'd say roughly 2016-ish. I'm in no way a recent backer, and also not in my honeymoon phase. I'm out of my "hype"-phase...

    We have no sufficient reason to believe "souls" or "spirits" are a thing. And blood... That's just soup to carry oxygen and other stuff.

    Crytek's lawsuit over Star Citizen using Cryengine continues heating up

    Yes, quite a bit of fun. Not the best $/hours of fun I've ever had (that'd be Space Engineers and KSP), but better than every movie I've ever paid for and quite a few games as well. We're still around ;)

    The Elder Scrolls 6 could be heading into full production as Bethesda begins hiring spree

    Not in a technical sense, no. TES-games have been dated, buggy garbage for the last 20 years. Atmosphere, sometimes writing, etc... sure. But not on the technical side.

    New case format for m.2 SSDs

    I've built in a Define Nano S (roomie's rig), Meshify C (same case, mesh-front) and am currently building in a Meshify C Mini. Fractal Design has nice cases, build quality, well thought out. I like it and would recommend them.

    Bethesda is inviting players to test the delayed Fallout 76 Wastelanders update

    Alienware's Concept UFO is basically a Nintendo Switch for PC games

    I personally think the idea for this isn't even bad. It's just... too much "everyone does their own shit." Why not make a nice x86-tablet, ship it with Win10, and have some various hardware expansion options for it? - "a real keyboard" (think Lenovo Tablet 10) for people that actually want to...

    Germany Bans Windows 10 and Office 365 In Schools

    Well, tbh, it's nothing I can prove @ "normal person's views" or not. I know quite different people, from my middle class colleques (both with left and right tendencies) to my family (quite left) to people further right. No extremes, though, so I can't talk about them, obviously. Yeah, CEOs and...

    Maybe. I think we're not yet on the same page (possible language barrier). Germans (in general, of course there are exceptions) as individuals (in contrast to: "as business leaders", one person will have varying opinions on the same matter, depending on if he's viewing the topic from the...

(- Did the „New Statesman“ not compare Merkel with Hitler (2012, kinda irrelevant)) -...

    You're correct, I missphrased that. Source: about 80% of foreigners that have met me or people I know. ;) It does depend, though, on where you're from and what you're doing. German attitude towards foreigners has changed heavily in last 5-10 years, due to both external and internal political...

    Android co-founder Andy Rubin accused of running sex ring

    You're comitting a false equivalence fallacy. What does universal healthcare, better welfare and affordable education have to do with open borders? Not really anything. I am a proponent of the former, but an opponent of the latter.

    So you have read the multiple, paywalled articles then. Okay. For the given year 2014, what was the average hours worked per week for male and female veterinarians? And if you really think, everything that calls itself science is to be trusted, you a) are comitting a logical fallacy and b)...

    Let's see. "According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the national median for weekly full-time job earnings in the first quarter of 2014 was $791.1 Women had median weekly earnings of $716, while men had $867. This simple difference represents a 17.4 percent wage gap." Fact: In...

    - hours worked? - additional qualifications? wage gap != earnings gap != unfair wage gap. a) I do expect a person working 20 years in their field accumulating additional qualifications to earn a bit more than the guy fresh from highschool b) I do also expect the person that works 10 overtime...

    "even black people" ... I hope you realize how (actually) racist that statement is, yes? Blacks: Might not get a job because they're black, might need to be a bit more cautious when dealing with police, might get killed by other blacks Whites: Might not get a job because they're not black...

    Maxine Waters wants to ban tech companies from making cryptocurrencies (closed)

    1) Trump telling "the Squad" to go back to their "own" country isn't racism, it's 4D chess. It caused enough outrage for people to not notice the change to asylum laws. 2) Some people are racist, yes. Basically no one denies that. But it's quite a far jump from "Some people are racist" to...
