  1. Past hour
  2. MFW I recognise avatars but not the display names and I'm compulsively wrecking my mind trying to recall who the hell was that


    1. Mr.Meerkat


      Hehe, I'm partially the same. I remember display names I get to see a lot of but for others, its easier to remember their profile pictures. 

  3. Today
  4. So. I just got given a free copy of Trainz 2009. Still going to keep Trainz 2006 though as it runs on Ati MR 9000igp at well above minimum settings. And that GPU locks up with Halo 1 (even in safe mode).

  5. I really wanna tinker around on my PC..... but what? Specs are the best. They are amazing. I mean they are tremendous.  I even got the most amazing overclock in place. Truly great. The greatest. 


    All kidding aside. What do you do to optimize you PC setup or actual PC?

  6. *Looking at the humble monthly trove*


    Why the fuck haven't I downloaded ALL of these already?!!!!

    1. ARikozuM


      Your name has been added to the book.

  7. Watching Quick Man run into a Crash Bomb you planted and seeing him continuing to run into it is fun :D



    1. ARikozuM


      Quick Man? I didn't know that referred to his memory. 

    2. M.Yurizaki




      Here's the fun part in question.

  8. How to make spaghetti 


    cook noodles

    Warm up tomato sauce

    Place fridge in tomato sauce


    1. ARikozuM


      Sounds logical enough. 

    2. WereCat


      I just dip uncooked noodles in ketchup and eat them like fries

    3. Tech_Dreamer


      what is he saying guys?, i don't speak Italian.

  9. This is, by far, thee most expensive upgrade I have ever made. FULL SOLID STATE SERVER (technically not...mechanical array for backup), 12TB of solid state storage using Intel DC S4500s.


    My family will never hear the price-tag for all of these...I plan to get them sled mounted and installed tonight. Benchmarks will happen tomorrow. Plans are to test RAID0, 5, 6, & raidz3("7"). This is like Linus's old SSD Server but 1/2 scale and with much more modern drives...and HBAs instead of RAID cards...and no plan to do RAID50...or use Windows Server...OK its not very similar. I am using the same chassis though. Norco RPC-4224. Nice case...except those damn SFF-8087 cables Leadeater you know what I'm talking about. I swear the day that fan fails is the day I'll need brand new cables. Anyways, benchmark results will be posted some time tomorrow for those interested.

      Pretty nice setup. My plans eventually are a custom HDD array with SSD cache on both the server and my pc as to eliminate storing anything on my main rig permanently. Everything will be stored on the server(s) and will take from there when I want something 

    3. Windows7ge


      @8uhbbhu8 Minus the cache part my setup is identical until I get this solid state array going. What server OS are you working/going with?

    4. 8uhbbhu8


      Probably windows server cause I have access to it but if I feel like getting it going I may go with freenas.

      @ARikozuM Dark Souls with a high school setting?

      Or a modern day industrial setting?


      Instead of being "undead" they have "dead end jobs".

    3. ARikozuM


      Instead of New Londo, it's New York.

  11. Time for you guys to mock me in the art of driving, its totally me driving in real life, definitely not me playing a racing game whistles suspiciously


  12. what even is my life

  13. When you share stupid plot details on a potential fan project, and the other person says that it actually sounds pretty cool.


    1. 8uhbbhu8


      Isn't that you everyday anyway?!!!

      @8uhbbhu8 Dumb fanfiction plot?  Or going past the point of no return?

    3. 8uhbbhu8


      Both :P

      Did the Washington Post complain about an AdBlocker? Strange, I run one on my iPhone and it didn’t seem to care. 


      Maybe their mobile website is more lax? 

  15. I would love to be able to cast my iPhone and it’s YouTube App to my Desktop like I can cast my iPhone YouTube App to my Smart TV. 


    Doubt Microsoft would want to do that though.....

  16. 1:50 - "I got 38 kids on Bucknell scholarships." 


    That's it? You make how many millions a year and you're funding thirty-eight, (38) (38!) (38) ONLY 38(!), kids?

      I hate how people will use the argument that somehow because we participate in a system, perhaps even successfully that I'm wrong or stupid for supporting alternatives and reforms. Just like this:

      That girl as goofy as she looks, she's a hero to me. "expensive smartphone". Even Syrian refugees have smartphones. Would you leave it behind in a crisis?

    3. DrMacintosh


      @Okjoek I love how when she saw that that girl was reporting for Info Wars she went into full troll mode. It was freaking great! 

      "Eating the rich" xD 

  17. Note to self: Put the original cooler on a GPU when submitting the item for RMA.


    Just got an e-mail from EVGA saying that they'll be mailing out a 1080 FTW iCX to replace my 1080 FTW ACX. 


    I bought the iCX cooler through EVGA's support back when the cooler came out and have installed it upon arrival, but it seemed to have confused some of the techs as they were expecting an ACX board, not an iCX board.

      @ARikozuM Thanks, but I didn't create the GIF, just wanted to make that clear.

    3. ARikozuM


      You've doomed us all!

  18. What do you think of the Alienware AW2518H, as it says Dell monitors in your interests?

    1. Sombra


      It's BT.1886 gamma tracking is pretty neat. I've never used a 240hz monitor though, so I can't provide an opinion on how beneficial it is

  19. All thanks to @Sombra's recommendation, Inkscape, I'm done with my profile picture (I finished it 3 weeks ago, finally finished a week ago). @Sombra, tell me what you think please!

    1. Sombra


      Very nice! I recommend that you keep playing around in it, watch some tutorials to learn new techniques and tools so that you can improve. I learned a lot by following some tutorials from a Youtube channel called 'Logos by Nick.' He shows how to make some high-quality stuff with Inkscape.

  20. A350-1000 vs 777X

    1. TheRandomness


      Both, why not
      (Based off looks alone, the A350-1000)

    2. OJTheAviator


      777X (I don't know much about the A350-1000). Also, isn't the A350-1000 more of a direct competitor to the hypothetical 787-10?

  21. Yesterday
  22. I made this GIF you can use whenever someone types in ALL CAPS



    1. Dankk


      thanks papa.



    Oh boy. Just so everyone knows, clean coal is basically washing shit with water. Anthracite, the highest quality of coal once burned releases less pollutants than lignite or bituminous coal but still produces pollutants in the air. However, burning anthracite requires more energy than burning lower classes of coal. In order for it to become the oxymoronic “clean coal”, before releasing the combustion byproducts to the air, mists of water is sprayed in order to wash some of the pollutants. Pumping water and the pressure required also consumes more power so I don’t know how saving a dying industry like fossil fuels is worth investing.

      You voted for the crop, you shall reap the crop. 

    4. DrMacintosh


      The State of California has more green energy jobs than the entire country has in coal jobs.....


      Fossile Fuels is a death sentence for economic growth. If the United States wanted to increase its GDP and improve our national standing, we should be going into overdrive to become the world leaders in green energy production. 


      The US could be the world exporter of Solar, Wind, and Hydro and even Geothermal installations.......but nah, Corporate politicians only think about themselves and their short term gains. 

  25. Really bothers me how when people are asking for help and they explain their situation, you see a bunch of replies like "Well I had to get my own car, I had to pay for my own phone". Things are different for every family you're in, the area you grew up in ect. Unless the person seems crazy and snobby, to them it really makes no sense as to why some things like this would happen to them.

  26. ...But at a certain point it just becomes sad:



    1. King_of_Oz


      Also, this man needs help. Somebody save him.



    2. King_of_Oz


      Please do this:


      It's for a good cause.

  27. Top 10- "nasty can of worms"

      Gameplay/Gunplay: PUBG

      Netcode/Optimization: Fortnite

      Oh and Fortnite's progression system is much better than PUBG's dumb crates.
