Re: What HP/DEC/Compaq do we have.

Picked up a VAXStation 4000 VLC from a recycler who knew they were valuable. I paid him $50 for it as we couldn't test it. It looks decent enough. Needs a new Dallas chip and probably some other work.

Re: A smear campaign against nekochan.net mods on reddit

Yeah only reason I keep reporting his antics is because it is funny. His latest escapade is to post on /r/conspiracy for sympathy. And get downvoted into oblivion. He thinks there's some conspiracy of Nekochanners out to harass him. The fact is that isn't true. If anyone is fucking with Carlo, it is...

Re: Intel backdoor: not a bug, a feature (buy a new processor!!!)

I'm not panicking as an Intel user only because not only did kernel.org and MS push out patches soon, even on 8.1 and 7, the performance hit I can stand to take. I'm going to postpone any upgrades to new tech until the dust has settled.

Re: Talos Secure Workstation

As usual Classic's blog posts are informative, talk to instead of at the viewer and give me confidence in what he writes. One question I do have is if in-order POWER architecture versions, such as POWER6, have this vulnerability. If you have some time, Classic, I'd appreciate it. I suspect that sinc...

I'm pretty sure both Ryzen and Threadripper support ECC RAM (depending on motherboard).


AMD does not validate ECC for their consumer chips. Same as Intel.

Re: Intel backdoor: not a bug, a feature (buy a new processor!!!)

Performance wise, well it depends what and when you buy. My previous AMD CPU was an Athlon X2, and these comfortably outperformed the competing Pentium D CPUs in both single and multi-threaded workloads. Of course, AMD's more recent CPUs have generally been pretty poor, which is why my last CPU was...

Re: A smear campaign against nekochan.net mods on reddit

Perhaps, but I'm still amused at the way this thing unfolded. It bothers me not that much, but it is insanely entertaining.

BTW, legacy, if you're reading this, I'm not low enough to make an account on your site.

Re: Intel backdoor: not a bug, a feature (buy a new processor!!!)

The Meltdown flaw isn't some sort of defect for Intel chips but a design flaw that nobody 20 years ago could have possibly known. That's not a quality flaw. Intel chips are still the best performers on the market. AMD alienated me after years of poor quality GPU drivers on all platforms, and poor pe...

Re: A smear campaign against nekochan.net mods on reddit

That's what he claims. I wouldn't be surprised if he did it himself, considering his signs of mental illness, and then forgot about it. I noticed a lot of things from the hacks he's done to the forum: Clicking on anyone's usernames sends you back to the front page, not the login screen. So he broke ...

Another chapter to the ongoing saga of Carlo. Poor attempt at sockpuppetry and professional victim game.

Re: Intel backdoor: not a bug, a feature (buy a new processor!!!)

Yes, and :lol: if you think Intel is going to try to replace 10 years worth of chips when they can just patch the OSes and let the owner take the performance hit. They've accused AMD and ARM of suffering from the same problem, something which AMD has flatly denied and ARM is being cagey on (which s...
