Re: US Election 2016

The problem with Trump is that he's... ...a filthy fascist carnival barker. I just can't do 3 pages, so I'll just do a link dump from my recent bookmarks. Have fun!

Re: Audio Encoding

From an archival standpoint I would get a pair of terabyte+ drives and dedicate them to audio (one for a backup of course) and rip all your music to them, uncompressed. Then, when you want to listen to an album on a media device with limited space and support for file formats, rip a copy of that al...

Re: Arma Textures: Trail Decal Poll

I think the lightning bolt was a terrible choice, opposed it from the start. Just doesn't fit the aesthetic whatsoever. Stupid metalheads. >:P I've always supported a basic trail with a directional arrow on it. Simple, clean, helpful without being distracting. I in fact have created probably a coupl...

Re: Unifying style

Today's movies emphasize dark realism. You see it in all the superhero movies. Yeah, I've been criticizing this for some time. So over it. "Words like “realism” and “dark” and “gritty” get bandied about Hollywood as if the only merit a story can have is in its verisimilitude, but that’s a lie. Emot...

Re: Phytotron's stupid computer blog

Should work. I just grabbed Steam from the wily repository. Ah, in 14.04 the Software Center has one of those "Buy" buttons instead of "Install," and I remember reading there being some stupid process to get that to work so forget that. I guess there's Synaptic, but like I said, people seem to be m...

Re: Food & Animals

Yeaaaah. Reactionary. you sound absurd and shockingly swayed by emotion instead of reason. Right back atcha, buddy! And by using a computer and electricity you implicitly endorse slave labor and global warming. Not a reasonable comparison, on several levels actually, and if you'd put away your emoti...

Re: Phytotron's stupid computer blog

PSU wise, check whether you can get a beQuiet! . Those look cool, but it seems they may only be (reasonably) available in Europe. No matter!...more below. Regarding driver installation, my experience with three current *buntus and NVidia is the "Just use the additional drivers thing". Let's hope th...

Re: Food & Animals

If you consume animals, you implicitly endorse cruelty to animals. There's really no escaping it. And what's more galling is to attempt to justify it with the sort of nonsense you and others have asserted in this thread (not to mention the unprovoked attacks), all in a lazy and vain attempt to ratio...

Re: Just in case you think it's no big deal

For example, Mud Puddle would be a great place to start, where this originated and where he continued a few days ago. That server has always had wacko moderation. Phytotron, you saw how people reacted to my thread. The majority of people don't think it's a big deal that people are deliberately atta...

Re: Unifying style

We're kinda currently stuck on the Tron backstory of programs being forced to play a gladiatorial style game. I'm completely fine with that, and in fact most supportive of retaining it. It's implied, and it's plenty. So we have "x core dumped y". I like these, too. But that means I've always though...

Re: 0.4 Cockpit Discussion

Just to be that guy: if speed is unnecessary because it is relative , shouldn't framerate be under the same umbrella? I mean, it's pretty obvious when your FPS is shitty, you don't need a number to prove it :roll: I didn't say anything about knowing framerate being necessary or even useful for game...

Re: Phytotron's stupid computer blog

Oh yeah, and something perhaps relevant to the previous matter (besides the realization and resolution that I would need those 32-bit dependencies). I was going through the MIME Type Editor and noticed this:

Maybe I'm missing something, but other than being chopped up to go with the trailer, it's not remixed.

Re: Phytotron's stupid computer blog

Welp, I done ordered me an EVGA 750 ti SC, for a bit less than $100. I've been watching it the past near-two years since it came out, waiting for the price to come down, and would have liked to have seen it come down more, but just got kinda tired of it lingering on my mind. I'll also have to get a ...
