    DOOM Eternal: The Final Preview

    Sweet! I actually liked talking to some of the devs mingling around but didn't care for Bethesda's hipster HYPE squads haha.

    Waterfox browser sold to ad company...

    I don't care why he did it - only that he sold a browser-fork founded on privacy to an adtech firm. It's really quite that simple.

    Waterfox browser sold to ad company...

    This has nothing to do with "being on a high horse" and everything to do with not being a selfish, money-grubbing hypocrite - particularly in "tech". You don't start a project based on privacy to then go around and sell it to an adfirm especially without informing your users before the sale.

    I wouldn't choose either if it means going against everything my project was built on.

    DOOM Eternal: The Final Preview

    I played the Doom Eternal 30-minute gameplay demo at Quakecon last year and IMO it *is* too much. I think the gameplay designers focused on specialized counters and gimmick features to the point where the majority of the gameplay encounterns felt more rock-paper-scissors than blow shit up and...

    EVGA RMA support.

    Yes, with the caveat that they were excellent when they were smaller, hobbyist-oriented companies. The days of Corsair's Yellowbeard just helping people out on random forums are sadly over now. I've had some pretty horrible experiences with Corsair quality and support since those days. EVGA is...

    Sony Is Struggling With PlayStation 5 Price Due to Costly Parts

    I'm personally not buying any console without a physical disk drive/removable storage format for games.

    AMD Threadripper 3990X CPU has the raw power to run Crysis without a graphics card

    yeah I thought that sounded familiar - just more clickbait spam from LTT and friends apparently Edit: I was actually thinking of this:,6645.html

    Waterfox browser sold to ad company...

    Here's a hint - you should blame him and his lack of integrity for selling a project founded on principles to an adtech company.

    Yes, there's this bizarre concept called having principles.

    Intel warns of critical security flaw in CSME engine

    I's just reality - no piece of software is ever completely secure. At least this time Intel disclosed the problem and provided a patch without excuses and diversions. Of course, it would be better for all if none of this software was closed-source to begin with.

    Yep it sold this morning. RTX 2070 is back up though - buyer had an issue with their mail-forwarding service.

    Dark Souls 2 PC - April 25, 2014

    I don't get the love for the DLCs either - maybe because they're harder? In my opinion that increase in difficulty is "cheap" though because it's mostly achieved by increasing resistances to everything but physical and much higher damage output. I did like Crown of the Sunken King the most...

    [FS] 2x16GB DDR4-3000 Ballistix Elite

    Parting out my gaming PC - all parts were bought new over the last 1-2 years, actually used for maybe 6-12 months. No overclocking, no pets, cleaned fan filters twice a month. Recent ebay feedback: Ancient ebay feedback...

    Switch From Windows to Linux

    Decisions in the Linux kernel are made based on performance and efficiency; although granted, this is slowly changing with the influx of non-technical "woke developers" - re: Linus and RMS "cancel"-attempts. Decisions in the Windows kernel seem to be mostly based on eroding user freedoms in the...

    Diablo IV Announced

    Fortnite season 11 event ends with a cosmic explosion and now the game is gone

    This may come as a shock, but yes, EA and other large and small publishers are less interested in creating a game and more interested in engagement and optimizing money-grubbing. Optimizing for sucking vulnerable people dry is disgusting and unethical. What makes you so passionate about...

    Fortnite season 11 event ends with a cosmic explosion and now the game is gone

    The gameplay loop in shit like Fortnite is tuned and tweaked by sponsored research to maximize engagement and investment. There's not much of a game left anymore (expect that played by the corporations pushing this junk), it's all over-optimized to extract as much money as possible while keeping...

    Steam Library Beta Coming Sept 17th

    No, I don't hate it because it's new, I hate it because it's pointless and bloated "UI" wankery which ends up creating visual noise. I prefer minimalist and clean UIs which provide the bare minimum for needed information and nothing else. Also I am <30 so please, take your ageism elsewhere lol.

    Intel impacted by SWAPGS vulnerability

    The Spectre/Meltdown whitepapers are actually pretty good and "readable" (by paper standards hah). This article is a pretty good overview without getting lost in technical details: If you need to brush up a bit on modern CPUs without watching lectures - this is quite excellent...

    Uber now worth 73 billion.

    It’s imaginary fun bucks until you realize how 99% of people in this country rely on these stupid inflated values to grow 401ks and provide for retirement. Absolutely disgusting.

    Intel impacted by SWAPGS vulnerability

    No. These attacks exploit side effects in the micro-architectural state ie. stuff like inter-instruction state bleed. Prior to these disclosures, attacks were executed through completely different attack vectors by exploiting architectural vulnerabilities. micro-arch -- what only the hardware...

    Intel impacted by SWAPGS vulnerability

    Definitely possible and if true more kudos to AMD. If you find the article please post a link as I’d be interested to read the full interview.

    Intel impacted by SWAPGS vulnerability

    PSP has nothing to do with this class of exploits (meltdown, spectre and friends). They are considered micro architectural exploits as they take advantage of micro arch vulnerabilities (mostly residual state after certain instructions) inside the CPU pipeline itself. PSP and IME are more of a...

    Twitch Relents And Allows Breastfeeding On Stream Amid Controversy

    Gotcha, yeah I didn't know it's gotten that prevalent -- although I am not surprised unfortunately. Twitch imo started off with a good premise -- interactive Let's Plays, but quickly veered off into cringey commercialization and excess.

    Twitch Relents And Allows Breastfeeding On Stream Amid Controversy

    Not really, I watched some programming stream a few years ago -- but still I wouldn't watch that while at work. I guess personally I don't go pleasure browsing the interwebs while I am at work - especially not on a work machine. Maybe this has changed, but with Twitch primarily being...
