Sweet.

 

Hopefully others find it handy.


In Topic: Paying for photobucket

So in other forums my photobucket images still work. Trying to post an image here I just figured out why.

 

Ages back before Photobucket started auto resizing the images you upload, the original images were still accessable but they simply preferrentially gave you a link to the auto downsized version.

There was an option back then, somewhere, to enable original image linking, which essentially just tacked "~original" onto the end of the URL.

 

These forums don't allow me to embed an image with ".jpg~original" extension, preventing me from posting. But over at the atomicsimracing forums the forum software there allows it and I can still upload and embed just fine.

So I'm not completely foobared.

 

See post here for proof

Perhaps some of you can try putting "~original" on the end in other forums to see if it works.

 

Will keep using that until either they break that too or something.

Imgur and Tinypic are viable alternatives if it comes to it.

Wait for the Alpha 3.0 release. Coming soon.

It'll be worth it.

 

Personally I'm waiting for the new delta patcher before I bother trying it again. Not going to waste my time downloading gigs unecessarily.

Well yes. But if you're going to be calculating Pi (or anything) in 2017 for sciencetic stuff are you going to be using x87 or the latest accelerated instruction sets?

 

You make a good point regarding comparitive results. And of course that's needed. But equally you want benchmarks to reflect real world capability, if you can exploit AVX-512 on one CPU to make it legitimately process something faster you're not showing it's full real world potential by not using it. They may be comparitive, but not the whole story. There's room for both methods imo

That's fair enough.

Yeah space is basically the problem. As a result you just want to make sure all the highlights are touched on and usually by then that's all there's room for.

Sometimes there's just a single page to look at the architecture and platform by itself. I did the X99 stuff when it launched, iirc I got a somwhat generous 3-4 pages to cover just the platform's new features/architecture etc. Did pretty well with it. That's probably the maximum you'll see these days unfortunately.
