    Things I have learned during my time on Atomic I’ve been around the forums for just over 11 years now - pretty active during the first year or two (sorry 'bout that) slacked off and then absent for a few more years - its kinda cool to be kicking back in the Green Room and catching up with old acquaintances again….Thanks @Chaos.Lady for getting my log in fixed. I’ve learnt a lot during my time here and just wanted to say a big "Thank You" to all I’ve gotten to know over the time. DON’T SHOUT! It hurts the eardrums. There’s some super funny buggers in here - given the wide demographic age the humour is much varied. Advice is plentiful - be it relationship, tech, food, pet, gardening or anything in between Most of us are up for a good strong debate on a wide variety of subjects Spam is bad mmm’kay? Rankspam - not so much. Acronyms are fun….and confusing…. IANAL is not a new sexual position Visual poisoning is a real thing (Lemon Party, Blue Waffle, Bukake etc) - keep bleach on hand Spelling and grammar is super important….. as 1shot1kill will quickly point out. Don’t feed the trolls and finally - ignore Takoma

    So I figured I go ahead and replace the tim. PCB: VRM: Heatsink: Then I saw these horrible grooves.... Couldn't believe how rough it was! I couldn't just put tim on, I knew I would be taking it off again if I did. 2hrs later using 2000 and 1500 grit, it was all I had, there is still some lite scratches, but i would need to take off quite a bit more to get those. There was two really bad machine marks going thru the center area... At least it is smooth now and doesn't grab with my nail.... How much this has helped, I don't know yet. Been awhile since I had to lap anything. Nearly the same cooler as what was on the 2080, but I guess the tooling was getting to the point of needing replaced, well at least imho. Same but the 5700xt is slightly thicker: Edit.. WOW! Junction is down a solid 20c! It is most the time around 90 to 89c, it hit 93 for like a second running higher clocks. This is running the 50mhz higher than "yellow" setting in my previous tests: FireStrike Extreme Stress Test 20 loops. Core: ~2000mhz (Setting it to 2060mhz runs load around 50mhz less), very little fluctuation Volts: 1.181 to 1.2v little fluctuation Power: +20% Core temp: 70c max 68 to 69c mostly Junction: mostly 90c or less, a few jumps but not much. The only bad is the memory is 2c higher at times.. possibly the pads were not put back on perfectly. Super happy with results but now I need to retest everything ----- Edit 2: Seems like the tim is really working in now after a few runs. Im running out of time today to test much more but lapping really helped, wish I did it sooner! FireStrike Extreme Stress Test 20 loops. Core: ~2050mhz (Setting it to 2100mhz runs load around 50mhz less), very little fluctuation Volts: 1.2v solid Power: +50% Core temp: 70c max 68 to 69c mostly Junction: mostly 91c or less, a few jumps but not much.

    https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-10-24/leunig-cartoon-criticising-mother-use-of-instagram-sparks-debate/11634522 Now there's a lady in the article who gets a tad upset with the artist and calls him a " "f***ing gronk". " for producing the above cartoon. She then says things like it's obvious the artist has not had to spend hours pushing a pram around, " feeling isolated and alone and terrified," ". So um, I'm wondering why she felt the need to say that in response to the above cartoon. If the baby lands on the ground due to lack of care then fuck the carer's feelings, seriously.

    Norm Mcdonald told this on Conan once An old fellow named Jim is having memory troubles and goes to the doctor who prescribes him some medicine. Jim's friend pulls up to his house one day while he is gardening and asks "Jim, I understand you got some medicine for your memory. Tell me, does it work?" "Oh yes, yes", says Jim. "It works like a charm!" "Well, I'd like to get some of that medicine for myself. What's the name of it?" "Oh...the name of it?", says Jim. "It sounds kind of like...Ah, I'm not really sure. Hey, what's the name of that flower?" "Flower? I don't know" says Jim's friend. "There's so many of them. A tulip maybe?" "No, no. That's not it. It's the flower you take on a date with a woman." "Is it a carnation?" "No, no. You know, it's the romantic one. It's red, and long stemmed..." "You must mean a rose!" "Yes! Yeah, that's it", says Jim, turning towards the house "ROSE! WHAT WAS THE NAME OF THAT MEDICINE THE DOCTOR GAVE ME FOR MY MEMORY?"

    Do you remember the first time we had sex together over fifty years ago? We went behind the village tavern where you leaned against the back fence and I made love to you." Yes, she says, "I remember it well." OK, he says, "How about taking a stroll around there again and we can do it for old time's sake?" "Oh Jim, you old devil, that sounds like a crazy, but good idea!" A police officer sitting in the next booth heard their conversation and, having a chuckle to himself, he thinks to himself, I've got to see these two old-timers having sex against a fence. I'll just keep an eye on them so there's no trouble. So he follows them. The elderly couple walks haltingly along, leaning on each other for support aided by walking sticks. Finally, they get to the back of the tavern and make their way to the fence The old lady lifts her skirt and the old man drops his trousers. As she leans against the fence, the old man moves in.. Then suddenly they erupt into the most furious sex that the policeman has ever seen. This goes on for about ten minutes while both are making loud noises and moaning and screaming. Finally, they both collapse, panting on the ground. The policeman is amazed. He thinks he has learned something about life and old age that he didn't know. After about half an hour of lying on the ground recovering, the old couple struggle to their feet and put their clothes back on. The policeman, is still watching and thinks to himself, this is truly amazing, I've got to ask them what their secret is. So, as the couple passes, he says to them, "Excuse me, but that was something else. You must've had a fantastic sex life together. Is there some sort of secret to this?" Shaking, the old man is barely able to reply, "Fifty years ago that wasn't an electric fence."

    Environmentalists believe the redgum forests need frequent floods to survive (a load of crap) so every 4 years rain or no they flood them, at times they have done this before a large rain which has washed that man made flood back into the river killing all the fish. https://www.weeklytimesnow.com.au/news/national/murray-fish-deaths-blackwater-event-kills-hundreds-of-cod/news-story/7881f6e224c470aa9a8c07289ce8a605 In my mind they should only do this when there is sufficient rainfall to create a natural flood to better mimic nature. The powers that be also seem to think the rivers should be flowing full out to sea 24/7 even when they use to dry up to nothing but a few water holes when the rain stopped in the past and it is only the dams that allow them to continue flowing. It is just a case of stupid people playing god from within there concrete bunkers people that see the people that make food as as environmental vandals that they are happy to see get shut down. Although I do like eveln theory that there is actually some nefarious intelligence behind it all using greenys to do the mines dirty work for them. This site has there point of view or marketing however you want to look at it. http://www.vewh.vic.gov.au/news-and-publications/news On a side note French farmers know how to perform proper protest here they spray manure in through the window of there parliament house...

    Something something @hectorbustnuts had much much much better taste in movies/everything, relative to @Takoma. 'Ignore Takoma, he likes bad stuff and is bad'. (include your preferred number of grains of salt) My oh my how the tables have turned now, tho'.

    a noble aim, although your methodology to achieve that outcome is monotonously flawed per your protocol, the answer is fiscal, and the success is if you are leo, or something like leo, or those people that leo aspires to emulate your expectations disregard other people's motivations, unless they accord with yours precisely - it's the major problem of the capitalist paradigm to measure monetary gain as the most important parameter, and absolutely refuse to hear that isn't a universal appraisal as for expecting to culturally assimilate indigenous people because they have no choice - it's that very lack of choice that destroys motivation "be like me or perish" is a death sentence to anyone who doesn't choose your offering if success can only be your brand of success, please accept that it's successful for you only even though it is transparently obvious to non-leo observers, you just can't buy it i don't think a sob story makes anyone inferior, but i do understand it illustrates their personal view point - the one you can't seem to visualise as you don't "see" how that could possibly be i was educated in psychology and psychiatry as part of training i'll tell you depression isn't "cured" it might be effectively treated, by pharmacological or non-pharmacological interventions, but your seemingly binary approach to complex issues might not feel comfortable with the paradox of individuality that extends beyond mood and encompasses motivation via rewards that you don't empathise with imagine someone is motivated by something, and it's not essentially money - there's an interesting concept for you to consider your impressive presumption of knowledge merely reveals that you lack the finesse to appreciate that no-one actually knows much, and i'm quite happy to say i know plenty, but it isn't a lot, and i disagree with your prismatic aberration of society the more certain people are that they are right, the more i accept that they confuse self-righteousness with clarity

    you guys are really having a semantic debate about over- and under-statement. it all depends on how you choose to frame things. you can say Newton wasnt wrong - just incomplete. you can also say he was dead wrong in that fundamental premises of his physics were later contradicted. you could say, Einstein broke the physics we already knew, or merely extended it. *sigh* both are valid characterisations. it was a monumental shift in understanding which ever way you cut it, mkay. likewise, you must allow for the possibility that something we learn from encountering new naturally occurring elements could lead to a comparable shift in our understanding.

    Yeah nah. It's pretty hard to imagine anyone making such statements about undiscovered elements having a solid grasp of what the periodic table means. The nuclear forces aren't strong enough to hold the heaviest elements together. Scientists muck around in labs trying to create new elements, and it's a BFD when they do, but what you might have missed is that they last for nanoseconds. And anyway, even if there's some undiscovered 'island of stability' where even heavier elements somehow manage to hold together, are they going to have magical properties? No, they're going to be analogous to other elements above them in the table, just like how the rest of the table works. Most of the properties are down to an element's outer shell of electrons. This stuff is pretty damn predictable. What are these hypothetical elements going to be good for? Shielding is about it. Saying Cybes is is taking science for religion misses the mark by a long shot. He just knows more of it than you, and has a better idea where there's any wiggle room. We have quite a bunch of stuff almost totally nailed down.

    ...Right, I'm staying out of this thread from this point on. It's bad for my blood pressure, and worse for my impression of people. "Different elements"...ffs.

    new estates these days seem to get built with excessive numbers of those tiny Fuckabouts, like every 50m. can be annoying, but worth it for slowing down the hoons, i guess. the trade off with roundabouts is so many arterial roads that used to function as shortcuts through metropolitan suburbs get turned into longcuts. infinitely better if youre a local driving the kids home from practise, but worse for those of us passing through your bullshit town. smearing congestion over a greater area has to be better for everyone, but it doesnt feel that way when youre encountering one roundabout retard after another.

    Religitards won't be ready. Everyone else, including many religious people who accept science, will be utterly unamazed as NASA officially recognises that Mars had microbial life a few million years ago.

    woah, youve latched onto that one word and gone mental haha she didnt say, "I'm a very conservative person politically...". she probably meant conservative of temperament (since terminating your own pregnancy is an extreme intervention) and conservative sexually (because a no sex before marriage lifestyle choice tends to be very effective at eliminating all but the most unthinkable scenarios for an unwanted pregnancy). while its safe to assume 99% of social "conservatives" are "conservatives" politically, that does not mean the word is interchangeable and connotations within context can be overlooked. its also safe to assume theres a fair proportion of sexually promiscuous atheists who happen to be conservative voters, so it should be pretty fricken obvious that the main thrust of her comment was not to invoke an association with the entirety of those on the right of politics. moreover, with her answers, she was pretty much doing the exact opposite of what youre accusing her of! she resisted offering a personal view, repeatedly downplayed its supposed relevance, and generally displayed a level of reluctance befitting someone with a healthy respect for the separation between church and state. so who is she trying to make feel guilty? first she said "I don't want to make people feel guilty who have had to go down that path." later she said "Ben, you've been naughty in pushing me to say that, because I don't want anyone to feel guilty about decisions they've made, because I'm not in their shoes." oh, i see it now. it must have been the last bit that set you off: "...not in their shoes". she was clearly echoing the famous aphorism that says we should cast hasty judgments on people with different life circumstances. i see your point now. by the way, just as an aside, when she says "I've not been in a situation where I've had to contemplate that, and nor would I", i totally believe her. being someone who grew up as a god-fearing christian, theres every chance she knows to take precautions whenever she rolls over for Alan Jones.
