Post by: Dr. Pezus on May 16, 2014, 06:00 PM
Today I realized we don't have a thread for everyday discussions, so here it is!
Discuss anything you like that doesn't fit into other threads.

You know I caught the tail end of that the other day on TV and had / have no idea what they were talking about (will watch vid above soon to find out) but it did make me think about how majority of the scientific community used to think the world was flat, or the earth revolved around the sun.. :-p

Well, I went looking for an apartment today. I think i found one i really like but it's a bit pricey. I hope i can get in. I had something showing on my report for an old place that i rented that i already took care off, but the company didn't do what they needed to. So now i got to spend some time on monday getting it fixed and chewing some dog. Talk about being embarrassed.

I think this text style looks really nice. HBU?

(just random text from a vizioneck article)

Although it is far from being released, Sony and lead developer Michael Armbrust decided to announce VizionEck, a first person shooter coming exclusively to the Playstation 4. When one sees the trailer, it looks nothing like a traditional first person shooter, but instead looks much more like a stylish puzzle game.

"VizionEck is technically an FPS. It has very little in common with the traditional FPS though. In the game you play as a Ranger -- essentially just a cube," Armbrust said on Playstation's official blog, also mentioning in the post's comments that the game does have a solo mode, but its focus was multiplayer.

From the trailer below, it's pretty difficult to figure out how the game plays. Armbrust does give us a slight idea on how it may play in the blog post, but thus far it's vague. We'll have to wait and see. Check it out:

Flappy bird within flappy bird?

Here's how it could go!
Flappy Bird Alpha and Flappy Bird Beta.  Flappy Bird Alpha will act as the bird in Flappy Bird Beta. 
-From this point there are two ways that are best I think for how it could be played. 
-Both are controlled by the player, this would be immensely difficult. 
Flappy Bird Beta is controlled by computer player while Alpha is player controlled.  I think this would work better than the other way around because it would be more challenging.  -Smaller screen, would bounce around with Beta. 
It'd be interesting...

im a barcelona fan, a big one.
he is overrated, costed the club shame loads of money, he is a lair, and ultimately, he is not a good player.

People comparing him to Ronaldinho and Ronaldo (brazilian Ronaldo). should be ashamed. he isnt even close. those were legends. this guy falls down when ever he is touched.

That is true, he has a lot of improving to do. I've never seen him play as well for Barca as he did at the Confed cup last year, perhaps he just needs time. Although however good he is and will become, he is not worth the money it cost, I agree on that one.

Which is why devs need to try and encourage them to the new gen by stopping old gen support. Most cross gen games that have released this year have done better on the new gen. I think cross gen games are only going to be giving that much profit to devs of the big games like COD.

It'll be a while, I think.  It'll start to get less prevalent as games become more difficult to run on older systems.  I'm thinking 2017, we'll see the end of cross platform titles for the most part.

forgot the name of the place were gonna stay honestly, i asked about prices and expenses first. too expensive for me. i could go to turkey for like half of that. and thats the point, i could go to somewhere else for a much longer period of time, or cheaper.

Whats iced up about that is its not. I was going to go from isreal to the Philippines, cause I thought it would be cheapest, but It was the same price, maybr 100 dollars less.


da fudge?! should be alot cheaper since its about half the distance. :/

so there was a good chance i was gonna go to Japan, but trip was to expensive for me to go. i got really excited about the possibility of going. :-(

It is a place I plan to travel in the future... it is expensive but I think it is worth of it.

Went to Malmö today, took only about 30 minutes by train. Went to a big mall there and had a burger, bought one t-shirt for my nephew and tried Mario Kart 8 (dem jaggies; placed first). The ride home took me 4 hours though...The fudgy train just didn't go farther than to the end of Malmö (did I mention that the train was absolutely PACKED with people? I could not move at all). So, when the train stopped we had to move to buses to get further. No problem, right? Wrong...If it hadn't been for the lots of other people going the same way as me I probably would never have made my way back lol.

First we had to take one bus to another place in Malmö, where we had to walk some distance to take another bus that went to Lund. But the bus didn't stop in the center of Lund, oh no, it stopped some distance from it so I had to find my way there and walk to take a train home (nearby town called Kävlinge). BUT, there were zero fudgy trains leaving Lund which meant my ONLY option was to wait a fudgy hour and a half for a bus that would go to Kävlinge to arrive. Then the bus took fudgy ages to get to Kävlinge because it had lots of places to stop at (a train ride from Lund to Kävlinge normally takes 9 minutes, the bus took like 30 minutes).

tl;dr: 4 hours of my life I'll never get back only because I wanted to go to a mall. At least I got to try Mario Kart 8...

Everyone knows what "American football" is in regards to a sporting event, but not everyone knows that there is another form of football (I assume your talking about rugby)

Lol I was talking about Soccer as you would call it. Rugby was also invented way before American football and is also much more popular around the world than American football. Soccer became big throughout the world with no influence of American football.

If I wanted to become a Vita dev, what would I have to do?
And what would I have to know?


You could become a PlayStation Mobile dev. That's the simplest route, since Vita supports PS Mobile. Also the cheapest option. PS Mobile games can be exclusive to Vita.

Or you could directly develop for Vita, in which case you'd need to sign up here: http://us.playstation.com/develop/ The static IP address is a must, but you don't need it when registering. This is the more expensive option.


As far as knowing things, just learn an engine. With PS Mobile there are lots of free engines you can use (including unity). With direct Vita development you can still use a lot of the same engines, but there's a lot more behind the scenes you have to do. It takes time more than skill though.

pro soccer is still not very popular in the us (while it is growing) which makes it mostly a moot point if its the most popular in the world since the #1 hub of sports and media in the world is the US... meaning the saturation of that popularity isn't as meaningful as the million dollar 1 minute commercials for the superbowl... you know the real football game:P

besides that soccer is boring to watch... almost as much as golf or baseball

:P I wouldn't say the US is the #1 hub of sports in the world, simply because they have such different tastes to everyone else. Also, prize money in football is way higher than for nfl. e.g. Champions league winner gets 5x  the amount of prize money. The huge ad costs are just weird really.

Actually the Championship (English 2nd tier of football) playoff final, the game to get into the Premier League, is the biggest sporting event in the world in terms of prize money. Teams in the Premier League get paid £70 million (about $120m) more than teams in the Championship. Its crazy really.

My worry with VR is that if you are playing with move controllers, or similar, swinging them around could be dangerous particularly when it reaches mass market. 

My idea is that the camera takes in information about the surroundings and perhaps displays a warning message, or even takes input from a second camera that is on the headset, so that it effectively pauses the game and shows the view that you'd see if you weren't wearing glasses.

Step 1:  Camera takes in information about surroundings, most notably movements. 
Step 2: Headset displays warning (1) - Option to press blank/blank to see headset camera view(2), option to press blank/blank to cast away notification.(3)

(1)  The warning can be turned off in settings, but default option is turned on. 
(2)  Headset camera view is taken from 1 or 2 cameras on the front of the headset. 
(3) Player continues as before.

IMO it's all about what's important.

So for example if in VR suddenly a real world chair showed up so that you wouldn't hit it. That chair would be augmenting the game world, thus VR.

720p with a decent bitrate is almost always in the 4GB area (4-5GB). Might be more if it's a very long movie. The 1080p movies vary widely depending on their bitrate. Most of them are 7GB+.

If you're not looking for HD, the SD movies are most of the time around 700MB.

This means a low bitrate is especially noticeable when there's some movement

Case in point: blu ray movies take up most of the Blu Ray disc. When you rip a movie you can lower the bitrate to make a smaller file. It's basically the amount of information or detail per second

1:
I'm very disappointed in how Marvelous Interactive is utilizing the Harvest Moon series.  6 DS games, 3 3DS games.  I feel that is far too much.  Mostly because they are pretty much ignoring other platforms.  It makes sense for them to do that, but I don't like it. 

2: 
I'm very worried about LittleBigPlanet 3.  The usage of new characters that do different things could divide the gameplay.  I hope it doesn't become a necessity for 4 players.  Multiplayer is nice, but it isn't something I want to use all the time. 

3:
I think for the best PM experience (used with the Move controllers) would be to dedicate most of the buttons to leg movements.  The back button, I guess feels incredibly natural for grabbing, so I'd use that for grabbing, and perhaps the trigger button for pressing some buttons. 
But then all the other buttons, will be used for walking, running, etc, leg movements...

1:
I'm very disappointed in how Marvelous Interactive is utilizing the Harvest Moon series.  6 DS games, 3 3DS games.  I feel that is far too much.  Mostly because they are pretty much ignoring other platforms.  It makes sense for them to do that, but I don't like it. 

2: 
I'm very worried about LittleBigPlanet 3.  The usage of new characters that do different things could divide the gameplay.  I hope it doesn't become a necessity for 4 players.  Multiplayer is nice, but it isn't something I want to use all the time. 

3:
I think for the best PM experience (used with the Move controllers) would be to dedicate most of the buttons to leg movements.  The back button, I guess feels incredibly natural for grabbing, so I'd use that for grabbing, and perhaps the trigger button for pressing some buttons. 
But then all the other buttons, will be used for walking, running, etc, leg movements... 



@2 I suspect they'll have sections for 2/4 players like they did in LBP2 or when playing solo have access to each character and have to switch

I hope so.

They confirmed you can switch between all the characters at any time, even in multiplayer. This means  you could have 4 sackboys or 2 oddsocks and 2 swooops etc.

I just did some number stuff because I'm bored.... I looked at average sales for the full year and sales up to the start of June. I worked out what proportion of sales were before June and then extrapolated PS4 numbers to estimate the full year. The range was 11.5-13.3m with an average of 12.1m. Therefore, I predict PS4 will sell 12.1m this year which is amazing for a first full year and bodes well if it has the legs.

My thought is that MS's E3 needed better music.  That's why it wasn't very good. 
Sure, we already knew about the games coming.  But we knew about Bloodborne too, and that trailer had me stunned. 
Okay, really though, I think it was about their trailers and... music.

while that is completely true there is a big difference between an 18yr old female, and a 23 yr old male... compared to say a 25yr old and a 30yr old...
they say females mature faster... but that's not exactly true female maturity is more like a sine wave it goes up and down 18 ~ 22 is on the decline in that regard. On the hand you may get lucky and be able to train her, but on the other hand it just may be better not to get too attached until she starts leveling out emotionally again.

Women are as different as they are many. Thing is that I don't look at myself as particularly mature either. I'm still a teenager at heart xD

it's hard to explain... males tend to gradually mature, and hold more things as standards that become more defined over time. (those standards can change as well over time) However, females at about 18 ~ 22 start to question their own standards and are more likely to act out differently than one would normally expect based on that females normal actions and attitudes. This also happens again around 27~30 for females. Men have midlife crisis that may be more extreme in some cases, but this happens to females as well basically at those points in time and possibly later as well...

I wasn't trying to "sound sexitst" men and women are fundamentally different after all. That doesn't mean one is lesser than another, just different. That being said what I was referring to isn't a discriminatory statement, but more of an observation which is based on personal experience and "rumours" (things I've read or heard that seemed to be more scientific in basis). Life does go through stages and these are different for men and women. Also every individual will act and react to these stages differently to different degrees.

Yeah I've gotten used to them now as well. The missions thus far have been pretty lackluster to be honest, but it's definitely much better than GTA IV where every mission was you going somewhere to kill some dude. GTA V seems to have more variety. Also the city is much more colourful and vibrant, whereas in GTA IV it felt grey and dull most of the time.

Nah bro, back in my day, we'd watch whole marathons.  Expensive, a little bit.  Well, it's probably matinee.  So, maybe it's only 12$ + popcorn stuff. 
Or something like that. 

I'm not sure where Riderz lives, but that's probably about what I'd be able to spend right now. 

Don't forget day after halloween sale!  I just need a respectable video card and I should be set for everything.

On Tuesdays they have cheaper tickets. Plus I'm a scene card member so I get extra discount. In the end it's 6.75 for a ticket which is pretty good considering it's usually 15$ on a regular day.

Finished first day of work as a Grocery Clerk.

I worked 2 PM to 10 PM (8 hours). Pretty tiring but it wasn't too difficult.

I had to keep asking this one guy what I was supposed to stock because he had the list and he was supposed to train me. I feel like it would have been a bit better if I had my own list though cause it was weird bothering him all the time to ask him what I needed to stock, because he then had to stop what he was doing to help me. I think it's just going to be like this for 3 weeks though cause the manager said 3 weeks is my training period.

Last hour was pretty chill...Pretty much no one at the store and all you do is walk around organizing all the things that the customers left in random places.

I thought death rates were closer to 60% at the moment in Africa.  Could very well go up though. 
Still, I read in the neogaf thread about ebola, that similar diseases in America, while they didn't affect very many people still had a pretty high mortality rate.  Something like 33%.  No where near as high, but that's still scary high.

I've always read this 90% number but haven't really researched it myself. Maybe you're right. Where did you see 60%?
@other thing: Yes, it's high but you also have to remember that the risk of getting infected is way lower due to much better facilities and more trained staff etc.

1711 cases, 932 deaths. 
932/1711 is closer to 55%, but I typically see them put 60%.

"EVD outbreaks have a case fatality rate of up to 90%."

up to 90%

Maybe that 55% will rise once it stops spreading and more of those already infected die.

The original outbreak had a 90% fatality rate.  A more recent one had a 70%, I still expect this one to go up.  Hopefully not too much.

Then i find out it was from a thread i created xD
Thread is already locked but dang ... it was funny, dude got all defensive ( kowenicki always so arrogant and in the high horse and pulled the mob mentality card was hilarious) then he attacking Legend game omfg that dude is unbelieveble.

just relax dude, the 95 % comment was talked a lot during the day after the sales results,the thread was just waiting to get bumped by someone. And most of the people here still have accounts there and comment in both places, kowenicki is the first to pull comments he saves to shove them to the face of other people later dont know why you all so dang salty about this.

Soooo....... a light hearted, humorous gif was posted by pezus after riderz asked.

Then again this is a different website though, Legend has no control over what other people want to do on the internet.

Jab? That what you got from my post? It wasn't related to Kowen... it was more a about how I miss VGC when it was fun to meet and talk with others guys and make friends... this is what make you interact with people and create relationship.

What the problem to wish that a place you love back to be cool again?

That is my point... I don't hate VGC, or the users, I don't hate Kowen, even Axum knowns I don't hate any mod for what they did... a lot of cool and fun discussion I had in the past was with Seece and Kowen to the point to some day I said I wand to meet these guys in real life.

Apart from the salt gif, they were posted "out of the blue." Go back and read the discussion. Riderz doesn't have a vgchartz account so he posted his thoughts here, while everyone else just posted on vgchartz. Heck going off time stamps you can see most people posted over there before it was even brought up over here.

Can you define trouble please.

I didn't see any trouble comment in that thread... the thread had a peace pace to be fair... no insult or anything like... some arrogant comments but that's all... same situation happens in real life and people just laugh with each other because it is what to be friends means.

Edit - Not be silly or anything againt you but I think you are overreacting a bit... just personal opinion.

He's was annoyed because he was wrong and knew it. And instead of acting like a man and saying "yeah, it was a stupid thing to say, I'm sorry I was being an dog", he come back into the thread with the same condescending attitude that got him in trouble in the first place. I  am glad the users of that site did something the moderation couldn't, and put kowen in his place. If things like that happen more often the place would be more enjoyable because it would teach other users how they should act, something swinging the ban hammer rarely ever does. Besides, every other post from that guy is baiting, he just got what was coming to him.

I wasn't trying to get any reaction. The reason I wanted that gif to be posted was because of his RESPONSE to after he was called out over his comment he had made months ago. The guy can't handle being wrong actually believes everyone is out to get him, thus me wanting the salty gif to be posted.

You can even see in my comment I linked to the VGC thread on the page where he made his response about the whole "mob mentality" and I said it would be awesome if you could quote him whilst posting that gif.

Had he said nothing and moved on accepting his mistake, I wouldn't have even acknowledged him.

Is that the TV you play your games on?

We have a 55 inch TV at my house, but the couch is far away from the TV and I hate playing on it. I prefer playing on my small one which is like 20 inches or something like that. I just prefer sitting close with a chair because I feel like I can see better and my reactions are quicker.

Are you lot playing name british people until we pin the tail on the vgc member?

The point im making is that you really shouldnt be doing it. It doesnt matter if you would have posted the gif anyway because that didnt happen. You posted it knowing that it was from someone else with bad intentions. You posted something from someone here on another site that you know for a fact would get on someones nerves and exacerbate the already hostile situation. Having fun at kowenickis expense is fine because he deserves it half of the time but posting bait from another user who has bad intentions isnt.

Its pleasing to know that it wont be welcome on the new forum.

Like I said before, had Kowen NOT posted that shaming reply where he says the whole "mob mentality" crud, I would have NEVER told someone to post that gif. You can even see I asked to quote him and linked it to the page where he makes that comment. The dude is just so salty so I thought the gif fit his personality well.

Youre not getting what im saying. kowenicki did deserve people jumping on him as so many people have had the same treatment in the past for stupid shame they say.

Like i said earlier it exacerbates the entire thing. Just adds to the verbal diarreah being flung at kowenicki and gets more people jumping onto the salty bandwagon. The aggro was already there, the gif multiplied it.

I think you are overreacting Carl.

I mean there is no problem to post somebody else request in another forum... and the gif express exactly what most users in VGC are saying abou him.

Kowen created the hostile situation to himself... nobody help him about that instead hinself.

You know... that happened with me a lot of times and I just admitted was wrong and laught with the guys... I even post the gifs for myself bey case it is cool and fun.

Like i said earlier it exacerbates the entire thing. Just adds to the verbal diarreah being flung at kowenicki and gets more people jumping onto the salty bandwagon. The aggro was already there, the gif multiplied it.

So again are we at an agreement?

I'm a bit confused at what the problem here is.   

The problem is only because someone posted a gif, because someone else asked the gif to be posted? 
The only way that becomes a problem is if Ninsect wouldn't have posted the gif in the first place. 
Cut Riderz out of the equation, would Ninsect have posted such a gif if he knew about it?  I'm guessing he would've, and seeing as how Ninsect is a member of VGC, it is pretty much a nonissue according to you. 

I don't see how the gif multiplied anything.  Only 3 posts out of the 60+ even noted the gif. 
2 of those were quotes about how they liked the gif.  There were already 20 or so posts about Kowen before that and there certainly would've been as many posts about Kowen regardless.

I am pretty sure you're carl. But you're saying you're kowen then? In any case, I don't know why I should be making excuses. It was fun while it lasted and definitely something that needed to happen after his own claim. He called a user delusional and you had no problem with that, did you?

Im not saying im anyone. Who i am doesnt matter be it carl or kowen or whoever. Think of me as a middle man.

He called many people delusional with what he said and he was wrong to do it as the numbers show. I disagree with it but what he said isnt at the core of what im saying or what im trying to do here with you and riderz. I think he was wrong to try put down vizioneck to Legend too.


Why did the gif multiply it? Only one user responded to it, I believe. Everyone else was already saying how ridiculous kowen looked. Maybe it helps serve as a lesson for him to be less condescending in the future

It multiplies how much it will have been pissing kowenicki off. Its a needless bump. It makes more people want to join in because its humorous. Look at it from a different point of view.


I think you are overreacting Carl.

I mean there is no problem to post somebody else request in another forum... and the gif express exactly what most users in VGC are saying abou him.

It is a problem when it is bait from a user who is banned ethomaz.


At an agreement for what? You're telling us to not post insinuating posts on VGChartz?


Im asking not telling. I cant do diddly squat to any of you but i can at least try to build bridges and cut down the hostility.

And splinter cell blacklist is brilliant.

and this forums quote function is a million times greater than vgc.

You're as much a middle man as mustacheman is.

I don't think someone unknown posting a dancing salt gif multiplied his feelings but okay, if you think so. Anyway, I am of the opinion that kowen deserved to get pissed off for what he said. Can't go around saying stuff like that without consequences. He could've handled how he responded far better too.

What was a needless bump? My original one (the only real bump in there)? I don't think so.

Does he know that it was from a banned user though?  If he doesn't know who it came from, then it doesn't matter much.
I'm assuming as far as he knows it is from a relatively unknown user, or if he looked further he would suspect it would be from Pezus, but not from Riderz, so this point doesn't matter much.

Its mainly the bandwagoning it causes. One guy posts a funny gif and it makes other people want to jump in and have fun at the targets expense.

Divergent had very little action and it was a 2 hour 20 minute film. It just got really boring halfway through cause nothing was happening. I mean I know it's the first movie in a series so they have to develop the characters and whatnot, but it was soooo boring.

If you watch the whole thing, that'd be better.
But basically even what he said in the video, that people don't talk about it.  It's too sad, the article was just throwing that part in their face.

yes but it isnt DRM, 

and as currently i dont think there is a third party controller that actually has a touchpad + share button,  isnt it really something to complain about?   if someone comes out with one, then it would be an issues, but right now it seems like its there to make sure you have full functionality.    think about if you dont have a ds4 so you buy a 3rd party controller.   then you go and pick up little big planet.   and half the game is useless because you dont have a touchpad to spin and place objects.    sure thats an extreme example where the person should know,  but a parent with zero knowledge certainly wouldnt know.

Is it just me or does it feel like Nolan isn't "psyched" to be doing Uncharted 4? Seems like he was frustrated when Amy and his friend Todd left the project. Also in this vid he acknowledges Graham as the dwarf in the Hobbit movie but doesn't say he also he plays Cutter in Uncharted. Maybe I'm just being cynical lol

In North America, the term school can refer to any educational institution at any level, and covers all of the following: preschool (for toddlers), kindergarten, elementary school, middle school (also called intermediate school or junior high school, depending on specific age groups and geographic region), senior high school, college, university, and graduate school.

Right, public schools are free and anyone can get into them. Private schools are paid for (usually very expensive) and can be the type where you live at them as well.

It's very weird having the VizionEck official forum have so little to do with VizionEck. I am truthfully worried that once it goes into open beta, you guys will feel forced out of town as users sign up to talk about the game itself. Hopefully that doesn't happen but we'll see.

You can listen to audiobooks if you want to learn something ;). But your body learns a lot in the gym, you just need to have some self-discipline and make sure you're working out hard. Also, I've stopped using headphones in the gym for some reason.

Even team sports players go to the gym because you can't grow most of your muscles by playing most team sports (like football). Gyms are good!

Guys know anything about Vizio tvs? 


Yes. I know a lot.

Before the game's reveal, when you googled VizionEck it'd say "Did you mean Vizio neck?"

Apparently the necks on their tvs break a lot.

Tomorrow I'm buying two 25' long HDMI cords and two HDMI to HDMI connectors.

The screen at my desk works fine for game testing, but it's extremely un-optimal for fine tuning 4 person splitscreen gameplay.

With the new cords I'll be able to directly hook up to the big screen.

I'm doing something very similar.  And by that I mean play testing 4 person splitscreen VizionEck.

I spent an hour debugging the scoring system. Kept having to delete parts and delete parts until I got it to at least work partially.

Even once it was just a single line of code, it still wasn't working though.




The stupid problem was that I accidentally dragged an object into that objects file. So when the code accessed the first child, it was accessing that object instead of the correct object.

Oh and also what screen resolution do you want? Me personally I don't go for anything under 1920X1080, but maybe to you it doesn't matter.
Title: Re: The General Discussion Thread
Post by: Xevross on Sep 27, 2014, 02:33 PM

Anything up to £800 I guess. not too bothered about resolution

Post by: Riderz1337 on Sep 27, 2014, 02:52 PM
I think Nvidia is releasing the 970M and 980M GPU's for laptops soon so to be honest you could wait for some laptops that have those built in them. Although they will probably be expensive, however by the time they release maybe the laptops with 800M series GPU's will lower in price.

If you don't want to wait, Here are a couple laptops you can check out. The £800 figure you gave me comes out to about 1300$. Not sure if any of these websites will ship to where you live but you can just copy the name of the laptop and try to see if the retailer you buy your electronics from has it.

http://www.ncix.com/detail/asus-rog-g550jk-intel-core-ca-98211.htm

One of them has a GTX 860M the other has 850M, which should be good for most games nowadays. There's lots more here on this neogaf thread, http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=745783&page=28. This is where I looked for when I was purchasing a laptop. Post #1399 in the thread has a lot of good laptop suggestions in it, but like I said I don't know if any of those retailers will ship to you.

I'd recommend waiting. 
GTX 900M series will probably be pretty big for laptops. Especially because of their power consumption.

Title: Re: The General Discussion Thread
Post by: Riderz1337 on Sep 27, 2014, 07:22 PM
Wow that is a great deal. According to the description it has a GTX 860M which is a pretty good card for a laptop (Especially at that price!)

Same Laptop here from the looks of it -
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834317541
http://www.amazon.com/Lenovo-Y50-TOUCH-Laptop-Computer/dp/B00K3F4KG2

And that one is 1400$ which is roughly £800....1080P resolution 8 GB RAM.

I have to say though, I have never heard of that website. The description is a cluster fudge and not very well organized, they wrote Intel Core i7 i7 (i7 twice). Never heard of that...must be a typo. It has no reviews also and that price is REALLY good...almost too good.

IF I am reading it right, and it has a GTX 860M, i7-4700HQ @ 2.40 GHz, 8 GB RAM, 1 TB storage (I think???)...If all of that is accurate, at that price it's a steal. It's roughly 1000 canadian dollars I would def buy it myself. But like I said the website is kind of fishy. If you trust them enough then I would do it. I'll try to google the website name and see what I can come up with too.

When you click "learn more" it actually just takes you to a completely new site. The price on that site is $1,200. That's roughly  £740, so not exactly the advertised price...

About half the game case was empty, without even a tag for a place.

kmart actually got bought by Sears believe it or not - which in itself barely exists...at least in my area lol.

Kmart was actually more common in the 1990s in my area but now barely any - same with Sears - now there is just one in my area lol.


Another store I miss greatly is Toys R Us - not the same it was before and there was this big one in my area which had a huge gaming section - nowadays its just small :(.

This is something that I'm not sure they understand.  Or maybe they think that the router speed helps the internet speed.  It's not like they are trying to sell anything either.  If they honestly believe another store has something better, they tell them to go there.

The internet speed is the bottle neck for everything coming through the router, but the modem speed is what boosts your capability to use multiple devices. 300 should be enough for like 3 devices with light usage, but more devices the more speed you want. It also means that what is coming into the router is being sent out faster to those devices. Like getting on the freeway, before getting on you can only go 30-40 mph, but once your on you can open it up and truly speed as long as the cops don't catch you. Even still you don't get to the freeway any faster, but once there you can get a decent boost.

But internet speed is not bandwidth. That'd be like your example driving on to the freeway as far as lanes go.. More lanes, but no effect?
Title: Re: The General Discussion Thread
Post by: the-pi-guy on Oct 05, 2014, 04:38 AM
Sure higher speed is good for local connections, but not so much otherwise. 
For example, let's say you're filling up your gas tank.
Tank -> hose -> nozzle -> tank
If only so much is able to go through the hose, getting a bigger nozzle isn't going to get more gas through.   By that same logic, you could say getting a bigger tank (keeping everything the same) would allow more gas to get through the hose/nozzle.  This is of course not the case because the connection is still being restricted by the rest of the process. 
Internet -> modem -> router -> devices

Hahaha the 3D printing company increased their prices by an extreme amount. A puzzle that would cost $50 to produce, now costs $300 dollars to produce.

So I'm thinking of bringing production back in to my control. Could make a puzzle that used to cost $50 to produce, only cost $10 to produce.

We tested a laptop with the GeForce GTX 980M card, the new Asus G751J. In our standard gaming benchmark tests, the Asus ran our Metro: Last Light test at high settings and 1080p resolution, at an impressive 45.7 frames per second. BioShock Infinite at the same settings ran at 115.8 frames per second. By way of comparison, a similarly high-end Alienware 17 laptop with a last-gen GeForce GTX 880M card ran the same tests at 25.3 frames per second in Metro: Last Light and 80.3 frames per second in BioShock Infinite.

I've been having issues with my PC to TV connection for months/years since I switched to Nvidia. I have a PC monitor that I use most of the time but I also connect my PC to my TV and when I turn on the TV (to watch a movie on my PC, for example), it's as if it isn't recognized or it is blocking the signal or something. It repeatedly tries to connect but it doesn't work. Maybe it's time for a less shaming TV (I don't even remember the brand name and I am sitting right next to it right now...)

So it often happens that someone comes in the store looking for a SIM card. 
And then they get very unhappy.

well 2 out of those 25 I went to today, and they got removed from my paperwork while I was out so I basically lost about 2hrs of work... or rather did it for free...
I'm a product vendor so i go to a lot of stores to check on my product's inventory, displays, and stuff like that

yeah that had nothing to do with me, but sucks I didn't get a heads up... 25 stores can make up a lot of hours in a week depending on their level...
9 of those would have made up my weekly 'A List' visits which is 3/4 of my A list... really hurts my hours

just venting cause it sucks...

Some WIP shots of a pistol I'm modeling.  It's really for my Stewie Griffin model that I have to do for my organic modeling class, so for that it won't be too high quality of a model. But overall as it's own model I want to make it as amazing as possible.  I NEED THE PRACTICE!

I believe it's been maybe an hour to an hour and a half modeling it.  I'm watching TV so I get distracted! :-p

What I'm thinking about right now is when you aren't as close to a friend as you used to be.
I feel like that happened on here, and in real life too. 
I don't talk to some people as much as I used to, and some of my best friends I've hardly talked to at all over the past few months.  It's just depressing. 

Now I'm wondering how many people care about me as much as I care about them.   That's a different ball game though.

Do you ever come back to your game and go "When did I make this?!"


I never do that, but way too often I come back and think "fudge this is good stuff! Which stars aligned to make my old work so perfect? I'll never be able to match that quality again. I must have just got lucky."

ya I buy the little hand warming packets by the box load lol gloves wont keep them warm at temps like that. Also take breaks every few hours in a heated vehicle to eat.  Usually its aroubd -10 to 5c up on the hills. Those are just the extrene temps we get.  Good thing about nountains though is you can get days wuth 1 to 2 feet of fresh snow lol going off small cliffs is easy

Could you tell me about coil whine?
Title: Re: The General Discussion Thread
Post by: Legend on Oct 29, 2014, 05:05 PM

@Legend
Could you tell me about coil whine?


Coil whine is mechanical resonance of the coil with the frequency of the signal passing through it. Physically, a coil is just loops of wire, sometimes with a core other than air. If the frequency of the signal is in resonance with the physical wires of the coil, the coil may vibrate. Oft times, the vibration is beyond human hearing (yokes in TV's can do this), other times it's in the range of human hearing.

There are many electrical parts/circuits which can cause whining noises, so don't just assume you are hearing coils. "Annoying buzzing/electrical sounds" are unlikely to eminate from a coil - you have something else making noise. Whining is caused by a part (or parts) physically vibrating.

Unto itself, voltage is not going to cause a whining sound. Voltage is electrical potential (actually, EMF); current through a device is dependent on the voltage across it. With a CPU, changing the voltage probably changes the operating frequency of various components within the processor (I really don't know what is changed), however something is probably in resonance with the signal. If you can narrow down the source of the noise, you may be able to reduce or eliminate it. Try using the paper tube from a roll of paper towels to "listen" to various parts of your system to locate the source.



Also your picture is bs. Yuck

I've typically found that Android is more open, you can get emulators and stuff. 
Whereas the apps on iOS typically work better from my experience.

Yeah, Android is far more capable.  It honestly reminds me of Windows of old (Not this new Metro crud).  Just a bit more strict in execution.

so far I've had no problems with ios 8? but dislike the manual typing as opposed to swype on my android... then I realized I could dictate audibly and don't have to type period (o:
other than that i've just been like looking at it randomly waiting for awesomeness to pop out and it hasn't yet... i feel like its more or less the same just with a few different ways to go about doing this or that which make a very minimal difference in the end user experience... only had it for 3 days so far though so who knows maybe something awesome will pop out at some point...

Iphones are great because they just work.

Androids are great because you can decide how they work.

I like my android because you don't need to swipe random edges of your screen to find menus.

My mom has an Iphone, and half the time I'm lost whenever she needs help cause there's just tons of hidden menus.

so far I use my phone just for work, which is filing reports while on job sites and taking pictures as well as using my dropcam app. Haven't had any problems with it at all functionality is great for this! However, the only reason I use my work phone instead of my android is because of the battery life as I use my personal phone (android) for navigation all day... If I used either for both all day long then either one would probably run out of juice quickly.

We should have the pumpkin be our profile pics for a few weeks and set it up so that it start rotting.  Once it gets gross we set up Christmas, and then on Thanksgiving day we will have Thanksgiving day stuff, then back to Christmas.

Probably not, no. Didn't sleep last night (didn't go out but because of the friend issues I had to help them out) and was going to have an early night tonight, but there's things on VGC which require my attention right now so that seems unlikely. And tomorrow will likely be more of the same from today.
