    What a joke

    That's in reference to a moon mission. Sort of funny - 50 years ago it was almost leading edge to get that shitty SSTV 140 scanline or whatever it was picture, which was converted by putting a TV camera in front of a monitor. In the modern day we should manage somewhat better.

  4. Ah good catch The gaming has a 50mm thick HSF vs 40mm on the windforce

    What a joke

    So, what, does that mean what my radio says is true, or just that it is likely the clearest signal ? ... heading into the nearest town the signal goes to shit amongst the hill and valley
  6. True. I think the Kitguru review was actually for this, though: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Gigabyte-NVIDIA-GeForce-RTX-2070-SUPER-GAMING-OC-8GB-Graphics-Video-Card-USBC-DP/362705969454?hash=item5472f5e12e:g:vX0AAOSwf8VdhCik:sc:AU_StandardDelivery!3121!AU!-1&frcectupt=true which is still $50 less to be fair! The windforce doesn't run so quiet and cool, judging by comments on the Kitguru review: a few people were perplexed as to how they got it to run so quiet and cool, and it turned out they had the windforce, not the gaming, heh. So I'll sleep on the Gigabyte Gaming vs MSI Trio (it has shiny lights, so that's gotta be worth something, right? :P) as people on Reddit are also claiming the RMA process with Gigabyte wasn't good, or that they received inadequate repairs!

    Yeah ... no. imo. What's say the local teacher wants to grab a bottle of wine, as a gift, to take to the local doctor's place for dinner ? But the teacher can't do that cos they be Aboriginal.

    I don't hold with the contrived apology at all. It sounds like the apologist expects me ( well, maybe not me, I'm not allowed to vote ) to actually believe the bullshit . lol. Justin has grown up in a country that has it's own first nation issues to deal with ... to think he's unaware makes the idea of him being the PM even more ludicrous

    What's on your mind?

    It'd be alright if they gave the dog some fluro strips ... but noooo they let them walk / trot the road cos ya can't be too careful about what's in the grass at night

    What a joke

    Land based radio is the only firm guarantee to stay in contact. Comms to satellites can be jammed, overridden etc. Though in this day I reckon a combination of physical layer elements might be best, and just dynamically switch to the path with the least lag and interference.
  12. No idea they all have there duds but they both have 3y warranty so if you have any problems they should take care of it.
  13. Coincidentally I was actually just looking at the Kitguru reviews for the MSI and Gigabyte today, but hadn't noticed the Gigabyte on eBay at that price! That is brilliant! The only thing holding me back on pulling the trigger on the gigabyte right now is that there seem to be quite a few people on Reddit saying their non-super windforce RTX 2070s had problems with artifacts, or failed within a few months. Are Gigabyte videocards a bit less reliable than MSI these days?

    I have a pair with reflective strips too. I pass people with dogs but I don't have one. I used to think it would be good to get me out but now I don't think I'd like running with one.

    What a joke

    My radio told me this morn that Gina Rhinehart is also going ...

    What's on your mind?

    lol . moving target practice. tell you what though those leggings with the fluro strips on them work a charm at night ... I live in outer country suburbia that thankfully doesn't do lots of street lights , so seeing those fluro strips moving on the side of the road ( that is not quite wide enough ) are definitely worth the money ... what shits me tho is the dog on the lead

    What a joke

    I'd have thought just the rotational orientation of the earth still makes Parkes a necessary radio telescope to stay in contact with a moon shot. Although with advances in satellite tech. I would have thought could get by without it. Still, it's mostly symbolic and to keep the next moonshot on the agenda, five years is the goal. Cheers

    I like running with headphones while it's still dark. You can look out for headlights. But just to be sure I wear a fluro yellow shirt, bright blue shorts and fire engine red tights.

    Navi Confirmed: 2019

    The perfect 5700XT ??? Other than locked down nature of the 5700XT that is.

    What a joke

    Scomo signed an MOU about going to the moon ... yeah OK, so is Australia stumping money to help NASA for something? Yes the moon idea was Trumps. https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2019/sep/20/scott-morrison-lands-us-promising-another-100-years-friendship
  24. That's very impressive, pretty much neck and neck with the gaming x! I don't use multiple monitors when gaming, but I do for standard computing activities when needed so that could potentially be a bit of an issue as it's here where I really want the PC to be as quiet as possible. The gaming x trio though still seems to be noticeably quieter based on the techpowerup tests (albeit it's a close-run thing, and the gigabyte would be a little closer still than the sapphire going by gamernexus), so I'm definitely leaning heavily towards it;. I know you pretty much can't beat the value of the 5700XT at that price, but the features probably just pip it for me even so. https://www.techpowerup.com/review/msi-geforce-rtx-2070-super-gaming-x-trio/31.html

    how crap is this government ?

    https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-09-20/newstart-pay-rise-day-24-cents-peanuts/11531734 Newstart got increases ... if you receive it, you get a whooping increase of ... $3.30 per fortnight. Yes that's like 23.57 cents per day Other rates got increases but it's only a few dollars either way.

    Problems with the 737MAX ?

    Actually I'm a little surprised that they were, the tower operators don't tend to look out the window anywhere near as much as they used to. The old days of watching each aircraft on finals, often with binoculars is sort of gone really, apart from on carriers. However Tullamarine does lend itself to plane spotting and the 787 is still sort of exotic enough to have a keen spotter in the tower pick up the binocs. Bet it woke him or her up Cheers

    Ever considered becoming a Supreme Court Judge? That was a perfectly succinct surmation of the situation.
