    Zen 3: 32MB cache(current) vs 64MB

    AMD seems to be on a core / uncore cadance, similar to Intel's old "tick tock" cycle. AMD makes changes to the core (Zen 1), then the uncore / caches (Zen2), then the core (Zen3), then the uncore / caches (Zen3+SRAM stacking) Zen3 actually had a pretty drastic change to the uncore though, lol...

    Anime Nation

    Its "When they Cry: Kira" btw, if you wanna search for it. Apparently there's uncomfortable amounts of fanservice. I will say that I enjoyed the "filler arcs" in Rei. The characters don't have to be killing each other for the show to be fun, lol. But even for a "filler arc", I've heard it...

    AMD BC-160 Cryptocurrency Mining Card Surfaces with 72 MH/s in ETH

    ETH will be proof of stake in 2018... I mean 2019... 2020, 2021, oh definitely in 2022.

    Most everything was a bonus. Lets not talk about that one arc, lol. To be fair: I've been told to avoid this arc so I don't actually know anything about it!

    Higurashi kai (answer arcs) uses the question season's OP played in reverse as the basis of it's weird sound effects. (hare hare hare eeeee of the question arcs turns into eee areh areh at the end). I always found that little tidbit to make the OP to Kai my personal favorite: its a very...

    When they Cry Sotsu: Arc 1: Kinda obvious, but it was the introduction again. Glad they went with it. There's a lot of parallels between this arc and the original, making for some interesting compare/contrast material, but not really that hard of a mystery once you knew the answer from Gou...

    Ocean currents and hydropower, solving the worlds energy problems without fusion dreams?

    Resisting yes, but saltwater is very, very VERY corrosive. By my understanding, most boats today use sacrificial zinc or something like that (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galvanic_anode), in addition to using corrosion resistant materials (like "stainless steel"). Sure, your stainless steel...

    Ocean currents and hydropower, solving the worlds energy problems without fusion dreams?

    The classical solution is yes, plastic (though you may know it in terms of another word: polyurethane paint). When we look at large metalic structures over salt-water (ex: Golden Gate Bridge), we can see that the maintenance tasks include replacing said plastic component (aka: the paint) every 7...

    Ocean currents and hydropower, solving the worlds energy problems without fusion dreams?

    Turns out that salt-water causes galvanic corrosion, meaning any metal machine you make will fall apart in a year or so. (Ships get around this with Zinc plates: carefully making the Zinc fall apart while keeping the rest of the ship usable). As such, any machine you make in the ocean: be it to...

    US Becomes Global Bitcoin Mining Leader

    Not really. The US-grid is well connected (with one... Texas-sized exception). Meaning that the green-energy used in Washington could very well power Oregon or Idaho (cutting out non-green sources there). There's transmission line loss, but you'd be surprised at how efficient modern high-voltage...

    US Becomes Global Bitcoin Mining Leader

    USA actually has cheaper energy prices than China, though fewer sources of corruption (at least, by comparative measure). Now that China is cracking down on the energy corruption (ex: random governor-level politician using local power-plants for his own BTC mining operations), that illegitimate...

    What are you playing?

    What is this? Oh, that makes sense then. Lol. Well... is the game fun? What is it? Like Diablo 2 style or... JRPG (Final Fantasy) style? I swear that car-games always look the most realistic out of all video games. These game devs must spend insane amounts of time on car-paint physics or...

    What are you playing?

    I declared war on Netherlands first (ahistorical). France figured out what I was up to, and started massing their troops northwards into Belgium. I then declared war on Belgium and stopped the French reinforcements. The 5th Army (largely composed of Mountain Commandos) slowly made their way...

    What are you playing?

    Hearts of Iron 3. Dear god, the manual is so thick: https://forumcontent.paradoxplaza.com/public/16772/hoi3 manual.pdf The map is too detailed... Those black lines you see there are over "regions". There are "provinces' within each region, maybe about 4 to 8 depending on country. Its like...

    selling remote controls and memory cards on ebay need 100,000 views what's the route to marketing!

    Yeah, you'd want a domain name (ex: FlashThemRemotes.com, or something memorable like that), and a webpage on there. Static is the "simplest technically", it requires the least amount of money to host. But I'd push you for something a bit more $$$, and say maybe play around with Wordpress for a...
