while it doesn't guarantee it, it sure seems to be working.
Can someone please tell me?
We are still raising money for his daughter. Send me a PM if anyone is interested in donating to his daughters fund. I just thought I'd try to put this thread in a positive direction.
I've been looking into who has custody, though I'm not sure it should be common knowledge. Jon passed on 12/28.
Ill be talking to my wife tonight to see how much money we can spare to send to his little one. I just hope his girl isn't put in state custody or something. I would just like to know she is in a safe place and the money we send is going for her. My chest feels so heavy now. I wish her the best.
For those who have not read this, you should. It just brought tears to my eyes again.
You're a good man Mailman
Please redirect any future posts regarding Jon to this thread:
Or you can put him on your ignore list and tell yourself what kind of he is every time you see a blocked post.
I love this thread !!
... and so does Drama LLama as he brought his whole family this time
That one, 2nd from the front on the very right of the picture looks a little like my mother in law..... U visited England recently?
LOL, I see myself as trying to get across that 3rd stage!
I'm sure that most of TPU is like this:
This thread that W1zzard has created is one of the reasons why this place is an overall upbeat place. But even in heaven, there's an occasional dung pile that needs to be cleaned up, and I've tried in my capacity to help the moderators do a little cleaning, trust me!
Guys, I'm not banning myself from that section just because of Steevo. I just need to do some more useful things with my time, since I have a wife and kids. Hopefully somebody here will try to continue with investigating the 5870 image quality issue, like air_ii for example, who has already provided Oblivion and Far Cry 2 comparison screenshots with both a 5870 and a 4870. Please ask him to test it in Mass Effect, at least. I think my work here is done--as erocker said, "it's impossible" so he just tried to make it impossible for my efforts to turn out as a honest success or failure. Whether he took a heavy dosage of cynicism or not (along with Steevo), it was a honest investigation from the beginning to the end. Then I realized that this kindergarten section is just not the place for me and I need to move on.
I really think that I'm doing myself a favor here, and hope you can understand that. Cool?
Those who have been friendly to me, thank you from my heart.
I'm confused by this .
Bo_Fox, please, please stop the drama.
There's no section banning, either you can post in all forums, or you're completely banned. If you simply want to stay away from graphics cards section, why don't you stay away from that section?
A lot of effort went into making Graphics Cards one of the most popular sections here, people from all over look up to it because it's the graphics cards section of W1zzard's site. So don't try to malign it with this...and for what? Because someone had an opposing view on a bunch of AA drawings. If you were doing serious work there, you would have tried something constructive than take offence to counterpoints, spam us with reports and PMs, and wash dirty linen here.
Again, take up serious issues concerning staff on this thread. No more "t'saal good man lol" posts, please.
No, I was trying to be upbeat. And I wanted to say that I really do believe you guys that the rest of TPU is a great place, and to give my final thanks to those who have been friendly to me in the graphics section, that's all. Once again, I'm done with the graphics section, and here. Nothing else to it, really. It's just to help you guys understand that I'm not that bitter (since there are other personal reasons involved).
I intended it as a positive message for TPU, and for you guys to not take it so personally since I need to do more useful things with my time. No need to be offended by this. Peace out.
Please. No one post responding to Bo_Fox anymore in this thread. Its the only way this shit will die.
What's happening here?
By no standards is bitching at another member in public 'positive' or constructive.
No, we should be doing better things with our time than reading the same reports every 5 minutes, tl;dr PMs whining at other members and the 'system' on no genuine issues, or replying to the same thing over and over again in this thread. We're sparing you any punitive action for this, reciprocate with not wasting ours (and yours) time on this thread, especially after you found out after your first post in this thread that the thread is not meant for what you were trying to do.
Annoyed, not offended.
This is the last post on the issue, or what's left of it.
Thank you, Btarunr, as a friend.
This might sound like a prayer (LOL ), but here goes..
I have decided to leave the Graphics Card section. Please disregard my last email asking you for permission to open a new thread on continuing the investigation of 5870's IQ.
It is for several reasons:
1) Most only chose to take my efforts in vain since I do not have a 5870 to compare with my 4870 and 8800GTX.
2) It's to leave it up to the community. I have led the investigation far enough, which was not well-received at my own part. Anybody else could pick up and continue the investigation, I trust.
3) Erocker and Mussels would probably be happier with my absence from the section if I just give up on the 5870 investigation. (EDIT: Perhaps I did break Mussel's rule by triple-posting, but that 3rd post was to ask Steevo to stop harassing me. He did just a minute later. Examples of triple, quad, quint, and six-posting are in this thread: http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?t=112933 . I do not see myself as the bad guy in that thread, when I was the sincere one trying to lead the investigation to clear results. Steevo was the one who was trying to derail the thread, and it does not take a genius to see that. Needless to say, Mussels has never warned me of double-posting until after I reported Steevo's post, and I think it's a lame and unfair excuse--plainly injustice.)
4) Most importantly, it's for my own personal reason, to spend my time doing more useful and important things in life, especially with my wife and kids.
I apologize for some drama that we participated in this very thread of yours. Please spare those who participated in the drama out of a desire to help. I only brought the issue up here because of your inquiry, which is sincerely appreciated in the first place, after Erocker and Mussels refused to reply to my PM's, having closed the thread as the conclusion. The posts were reported with a message basically saying "I am reporting these additional posts for your convenience so that you do not have to find them in the huge thread." I, as the victim, brought it up to your attention, for my intentions into the 5870 investigation were in good faith and for good purposes in the end.
Hope this saved you time/trouble as I have already arrived at my own solution that should hopefully keep peace with everybody here, and just close the case.
This is becoming entertaining.
We need to enhance it. Zoom in on that. Sharpen it. Use a different algorithm.
Can I make a flowchart?
If I dance around the totem, and put my ear to the ground, I think I can hear it: a whining brown-noser
OK. I'm really sick of all of this. The next person to participate in this utterly stupid drama will receive an infraction. THIS crap is NOT what this thread is for. I'm serious guys. Just test me.
My wife has her soaps and I have this thread.
Gawd, I has been sucked into the Zone...
I really believe that this has to be the best maintained and freindliest forum that I have ever participated on (even including my old BBS days). 99.9% of the people who come here for help, get the answers they need, which I think is a great service and I am proud to be part of it.
Jeesh! hope everything's gonna be fine!
