    Do you still believe in Cryptocurrency ?

    Yeah, proof of share/stake system is more efficient but easy to abuse ... Well, concerning bitcoin they are indivisible. From other variants I kinda like proof of research concept. At least let greed cure cancer.

    Do you still believe in Cryptocurrency ?

    It's exactly inherent to the tech, the system can be decentralized and distributed because validation of the transaction is done by the mining network doing what is essentially cracking SHA encryption by brute force (huge amounts of energy wasted on every single transaction)

    Leaked AI-powered Game Revenue Model Paper Foretells a Dystopian Nightmare

    Yes ... and the quick buck here is in detecting big spenders ... mapping the house to see how much space there is, detecting the squeaking of the chair to detect income level (non squeaky chair is an expensive chair) ... next it'll be voice recognition trying to catch you speaking about your...

    Do you still believe in Cryptocurrency ?

    It's not cheap, I'm with ford on this one, massive amounts of energy are thrown away to validate a single transaction ... and also the same energy is wasted to validate, for example, transaction of buying a bubble gum or transaction of paying country's national debt.

    Spectre / Meltdown Fiasco - User Side

    If that's using pure javascript it must be thanks to the modern JIT compilers in browsers for faster script execution.

    Are this black-grey artifacts-squares in dark areas normal?

    Basically, because games look fine and only videos show this behaviour as I understand

    Low quality video compression artifacts made more easily visible by possibly wrong brightness/contrast setting on the monitor

    Windows 7 or 8 TO Windows 10 upgrade is still available for free... till Jan 16th, 2018

    Now I'm worried about well being of Microsoft, and whole this time I was under the impression the ripping off is happening in the opposite direction.

    What are you playing?

    I guess burning my machine will be good enough reason to upgrade

    What are you playing?

    Very RPG like, one main quest line and side quests sprinkled on the map ... don't know about story quality, I'm not that deep into the story, spent most time exploring very detailed world and doing side stuff. Character progression is also RPGish with ability tree and points on level up...

    Setting up a Router & PC to a WAN port for Router bandwidth testing

    Most home devices distributed to subscribers by ISPs are router + modem combo and people + tech support are simply calling them router ... that's where confusion is coming from

    Assassin's Creed Black Flag is free via ubisoft's uplay software ... hurry while it lasts

    Would you opt-in to allow for CPU mining while visiting the forums for them to remain ad free?

    As long as you don't actually use adblock to block ads ... because 'uBlock Origin' is faster and much easier on the cpu and memory

    Onward to the Singularity: Google AI Develops Better Artificial Intelligences

    Using neural network to correctly classify regions in the captured frame is what we repeatedly see demonstrated. Those are good old algorithms from the 1970's reworked and applied on today's massively parallel compute architectures, and that's great, neural networks learn faster, detect faster...

    Do you guys lock your framerate ?

    I'm sure even back then patricians among themselves called each other pleb out of endearment.
  23. BiggieShady

    Do you guys lock your framerate ?

    You are not, comes from ancient Rome and their patricians and plebs citizen social classes ... being a pleb means not being an elite, and calling one means being a dick

    Do you guys lock your framerate ?

    At 1080p you better crank that shit up not to loose some frames when it hits 150 fps occasionally :laugh: you always have DSR for older games though, so you may never loose a frame again
