  • If you absolutely need an RTX 3090 Ti This is your lucky day. (Tom's Hardware)

    EVGA has slashed the prices on two models by close to 50% to a merely exorbitant $1149 and $1199.

    This sort of price cut does suggest the RTX 4000 cards are (a) close and (b) a significant upgrade over the current lineup - enough that existing inventory will be dead weight once the new cards ship.

  • The best thing we can do with JavaScript is retire it. (Dev Class)

    Well, the second best thing we can do with JavaScript is retire it. The best thing is to take it out the barn and kill it with an axe. And a chainsaw. And ten gallons of kerosene and a box of matches.

    What the person saying this - Douglas Crockford, inventor of JSON - wants to replace the world's most popular programming language with is E:
    The E language provides a convenient and familiar notation for the ELib computational model, so you can program in one model rather than two. Under the covers, this notation expands into Kernel-E, a minimalist lambda-language much like Scheme or Smalltalk.
    Objects written in the E language are only able to interact with other objects according to ELib's semantics, enabling object granularity intra-process security, including the ability to safely run untrusted mobile code (such as caplets).
    Yeah, I suspect you may have your work cut out there.


  • Do not disturb is no longer enough. (The Register)

    We need a STFU mode for computers and mobile devices.


  • Build your own Windows tablet. (Instructables)

    A large, heavy, power-hungry Windows tablet, based on laptop gizzards, but still.

22 Morning all. Every hardware and software vendor on the planet here and two galaxies over think their primary function is to disrupt your life with banners, bells, bings, boops, and buzzes that notify, warn, or terrify you of everything you already know, things you don't want to know, and things you won't survive anyhow, 24 hours a day. My default policy is STFU because there is not STFU mode. I shudder every time a new Android version comes out because it usually means a new battle of whack a mole over this crap. Windows is only slightly less annoying here. You really have to work at getting these machines to shut up but once you figure it out it is well worth the work.

34 Since tech thread -
Neighbor called me over yesterday to troubleshoot a dead string of can lights in a cathedral ceiling. Three cans - all out. Traced the circuit back to the panel - okay, breaker getting line power, all's well there. Back upstairs, dug into the 4-way switch set ups - after much, much fussing and testing, all switches operating properly with line side (and load) looking good. A real head scratcher. While taking a lunch break and pondering our next move, 16 yr old daughter, who is serving us lunch asks - could the bulbs be burned out? Couldn't be - what are the odds? Besides, it's a 24 ft ceiling. Major pain to get the bulbs out.

Set up ladders, extension wands. All three bulbs were burned out.

I wanted to cry. Four hours burned to replace three bulbs.

I know better than that.

74 It does feel abnormally hot this summer for some reason... it's only 85 degrees, and I'm no stranger to high humidity, and yet it still feels far more oppressive outside than i can ever remember. Does glow bull worming somehow make the atmosphere hold more water at saturation, so that 80% relative humidity is now higher than 80% humidity used to be? This is horrible.

108 I am done. Good wishes to so many here. To name a few there is Cicero and many more. There are the good ones like MH, CBD, and Weasel. There are others like Dragon Berzerker who is one of the best.

I quit because the boss doesn’t like me. I was shocked by this but it eas shown to be true. No one explained it but to be honest, I don’t care. We are supposed to be on the same side here. You don’t go after your own kind unless there is a good reason.

The jagioffs could be named but I will let it go. Not Flounder for sure. Some other guys with fish names, for sure not Flounder as a Diocletian.

I was shocked when the boss called me out. I wish we could have discussed the issue. No chance I was trying to mess with him. We have years of posting to prove that.

109 I guess the Rs had another aw, shucks, they got us again moment. The dems pulled some "trick" which got the CARES act through, but left the Rs thinking reconciliation was off the table for BBB. Once it was assured that BBB wad going to go through, Manchin "caved" on BBB. The Rs allowed the bill to go to the floor, then, surprise reconciliation and it didn't really need 60 votes.

111 This week, fast food giant McDonald’s ended its trial of their plant-based burger, the McPlant, which uses Beyond Meat™ meatless patties. “Neither McDonald’s nor Beyond Meat has announced any plans for additional testing or a nationwide launch,”

Posted by: Cat Ass Trophy at August 08, 2022 07:20 AM (R8uWY)

119 I am done.

I guess I missed something. I hate to see regulars leave.

FWIW, I love this community and have gotten hours and hours of entertainment out of the eclectic mix characters here. When I get peeved, and I do get peeved at some, I remind myself that the only thing sadder that fakey internet friends is fakey internet enemies.

But I am simple minded - so, there's that.

125 The one intentional banning I had here, there having been several accidental ones, was the first time I did a thirsty Tree of Liberty post. Ace was much more sensitive back when he was still trying to get major advertising.

We have come a long way, or fallen far. One of those anyway.

Posted by: G'rump928(c) at August 08, 2022 07:27 AM (MeDDJ)

126 119. My God if I ever flounce. This was based on a comment from months ago. It does look dumb now but I didn’t get it at the time.

This is not a flounce. I went off half cocked. I think the entire thing was a misunderstanding.

Posted by: Quint at August 08, 2022 07:29 AM (btbnt)

No exit interview for flouncers? Pity. There ought to be a page where someone taking that step could check off who to blame for their departure to greener pastures.

135 “And what we saw just in third quarter, we’re seeing it continue into fourth quarter, is that death rates are up 40% over what they were pre-pandemic,” he said.

“Just to give you an idea of how bad that is, a three-sigma or a one-in-200-year catastrophe would be 10% increase over pre-pandemic,” he said. “So 40% is just unheard of.”

Last week I finally encountered the lauded kiosks for ordering the gustatory delights offered at McDonalds. What a clusterfook. After taking a beating from others in my party for having gotten the order "all wrong", I yielded the honor for future ordering to someone, anyone, but me.

Were it not for the gKids, we'd not even have been there. It is time to open their eyes to better choices for spending dining out $$$.

When you think about this, this is appropriate as they have pretty much declared war on the normal American citizen (rather than enemies from afar).

Until WebAssembly or something like it is usable we're stuck with it in the browser. Increasingly JavaScript is becoming a target for compilation for other languages (like Kotlin) rather than something humans actively code in. That's probably the best short-term solution.
