Lest we forget that the internet was never designed for the www, either... :roll:

Re: your latest purchase

That's the biggest < 5w power supply I've ever seen :shock:

Luke Dormehl The Apple Revolution

Picked up this title at HPB a few weeks ago and inhaled it in one Saturday. If you liked the folklore.org stories (or it’s print counterpart, Revolution In The Valley), and are into Atari/Apple/Next/Pixar and whatever else Jobs touched you would like it. Don’t worry, lots of Asshole Jobs stories too...

Re: AI Chess

It's been running for a bit over 4 hours so far and it's averaging 71 games / hour. I am using the user ID mxs http://lczero.org/user/mxs Per the getting started I'm running two clients. But the GPU usage in task manager is only around 56%. I have no idea how accurate that usage indicator is. I am n...

Re: AI Chess

I have an Nvidia P2000 in my PC (mid range workstation card), I have no idea what any of this (and I suck at playing chess) but I can try running it for a day and see what kind of performance it gets. I'm trying to track down a 1070 or 1080 that isn't crazy overpriced for my razer core. I had a 1070...

Re: What Apple hardware do we have?

If I had bought a G5 in 2005, I would have been rather unhappy when they announced the change to intel in 2006. (Thats my personal opinion) I want to call this out specifically, as I had a 2006 mac pro (INTEL) that was unsupported in 2012 with the final release of 10.7. Whereas the G5's were unsupp...

Re: IBM T221 killed by incompetence - one more for packing stuff properly

Noise. A lot of what you say doesn't make any sense. Let's say I have a 100 dpi resolution 24" screen - 1920x1080. I decide to upgrade to a 200 dpi resolution 24" screen - 3840x2160. The number of pixels, the image quality, the whatever you want to call it... has quadrupled. The computer ...

Re: IBM T221 killed by incompetence - one more for packing stuff properly

1) you get beyond what the eyes can discriminate Ah, yes, if you are looking at cel-animated films. In which case, you're better off putting your money into the contrast and brightness side of the equation, instead of resolution. Aliasing is still an issue for line drawings, text, anything contrast...

Re: IBM T221 killed by incompetence - one more for packing stuff properly

Not to beat up on 'newer' or nuttin but ... can you point out a newer display that displays everything from 640x480 to 3840x2400 without a hiccup ? Yes, they practically all can. happily works with one to four single-link dvi connections or one single plus one dual-link or two dual-links ? The fact...

Re: What Apple hardware do we have?

Well I'm probably not going to drag around my Focusrite just to plug headphones into a macbook, either.

Re: Reviveing old mobiles?

I like the jet black iphone 7 so much I'm on #2 (as opposed to an 8 or X). Wifey OTOH always insists on the latest and greatest handset, currently a Note 8. I think I'll be sticking with the 7 for at least another few years. I also have a sony but... the software has really been a letdown and it's j...

Correct, it contains a USB interface and some extra logic, DAC, ADC for the mike, headphone amp, and connectors. The assembly could be called an "adaptor". :roll:

Re: What Apple hardware do we have?

I just think that its a very stupid move for Apple to release an intel-based machine only a year before they move on to something else. (Especially being their flagship line.) The last G5 Powermacs introduced 2005, Intel Macs introduced early 2006. Here are some pics of my current hi-fi setup I don...

Re: What Apple hardware do we have?

Let's face it, Apple never produced "workstations", so to compare a Mac Pro to a fully fledged workstation with terabytes of RAM and many multi-core Xeon processors is a little bit unfair. They did until 2013... I will have to do my research in the coming months then, as I won't waste my ...
