    The coronavirus conspiracy

    If you have COVID-19, and you blow your nose... ... is that corona discharge?

    For our fallen brethren

    Twinny and I definitely had our disagreements, but I always had a lot of respect for him and his contributions to atomic life. Vale. Many hugs, @plebsmacker

    Atomic Origins

    Joined in.... some time in 2002 I think. I had recently left high school over what I now recognise were mental health issues, stemming from Autism. I needed a non-judgemental place to fit in. I had recently started reading Atomic magazine, since seeing copies of it floating around at LAN parties. I felt accepted here from the word go, among people that live and breathe computers the way I did! The computer I had at that time was a meagre Pentium 4 with a GeForce 3 Ti 200, built from hand-me-down bits and pieces from my dad. I posted some photos of it here: When I got a job in 2003, I finally had the money to start upgrading. First I went to a DDR Pentium 4, a 2.4GHz Northwood with a GeForce FX 5600. Left dissatisfied, and tired of the ribbing from forumites and IRL friends alike for having a P4, I jumped to AMD. It looked something like this AthlonXP 2800+ Barton Asus A7V600 mobo 512MB RAM Sapphire Radeon 9800XT And that's where my love of overclocking really took off.

    Give me a Language!

    I'll throw in support for C# - The language is very structured and strongly typed, it's basically impossible to produce "true + true == 2" type bullshit (looking at you Javascript ), so it encourages good programming practice -- While this might make is seem less "forgiving", Visual Studio does relatively thorough syntax and type checking on-the-fly, so you don't have to wait until build/run to find your errors. -- Curly braces and semicolons make blocks of code unambiguous. JS has this as well, but this is in contrast with Python. - The tools are sophisticated, mature, and free. Visual Studio community edition contains most of the development/debugging tools found in Pro/Enterprise. - Both the applications you produce, and the IDE itself are cross-platform. - Unity Engine uses C# as the scripting language, if you ever want to muck around in that space - NuGet.org contains libraries for almost anything you could ever want to add in, and the package manager is built right in to the IDE. - Syntactically very similar to C++

    Juggs, you da man
  12. They already outed themselves in a biggish thread where they shared their real name, and the fact they're DMB, a loooooooong-time conspiracy nutjob and general serial loony/pest. One who has been banned multiple times before.

    It must keep you up at night, reconciling your notion of "liberty" with a religious belief system that inherently denies it.
