    Windows 10

    I also like the idea of the new start menu. The start screen for me was the worst thing they could have done, and this way people who like one or the other get a bit of a compromise. It seems to bring the best of both interfaces into one. I am looking at getting a Windows Phone next year when my contract ends. I hadn't thought of that possibility, which has me now wanting the phone and OS even more.

    how crap is this government ?

    I for one, am waiting on the Australian National Socialist Workers Party to form. I'd vote for them. Despite the obvious name link, no, I don't support Fascism.
  3. They usually mean max when they say that. Everything set to maximum settings - AF, AA, etc

    NBN - Is it too expensive?

    Goodbye mostly ubiquitous network, we hardly knew ye. The MTM FTTN scheme is a fucking disgrace.
  5. BF4 - http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews/gpu_displays/nvidia_gtx980_maxwell_review/9 Watch Dogs - http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews/gpu_displays/nvidia_gtx980_maxwell_review/20 TTL didn't run Thief, so here's Fire Strike Extreme - http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews/gpu_displays/nvidia_gtx980_maxwell_review/7 I look at the 1440p results these days. The results aren't too far apart. The main difference between the two is the power draw. I have a bit of hate for both red and green teams lately. ATI/AMD have always had shit GPU drivers, and nVidia released the 32*.** series drivers that COOKED my old 580. That was a pretty common problem, it was all over the geforce forums. I would have kept the 580 for a while longer if they hadn't done that to me. I have no doubt the gap will widen still as drivers become more optimised, but for the time being, there is really dick all difference between them other than power draw and 6-12 fps at resolutions that still stress the card. Edit - I should stress that I am comparing the 980 to MY 290. Mine is an extremely good overclocker, and I matched TTL's MSI R9 290 Gaming OC clocks (as can pretty much any of the MSI 290's. I also have the 2nd BIOS flashed to a 290X). Bog standard 290's I can cede the difference.
  6. I don't think they'll need to release anything until nVidia put out a GTX990. From what I can see, the 980 sits about the same place on the charts as a 290 (non-X)

    Cooling In A Hot/dry Environment

    Thought about a new case and moving to an AIO cooler? The H105 is pretty good, and fits in a mid tower easy (I have mine in an NZXT H440 with push/pull). It can keep my CPU cool on a 1.4v 4.9GHz+ OC, so running stock speeds @ ambient 45 you should see high 50's to mid 60's under normal loads (Maybe up to high 60's but that's very acceptable.)

    my 24/7 OC is 4.7, could do a direct comparison if I had a 9590 :P

    What's that say about you if you think publishers think you want to see mysognistic and otherwise poorly written content just because you're a male? I believe it's called 'enough rope to hang yourself with'. If a game makes you gratuitiously perform something, then sure. But if it's just an option in the game that you're kind of steered away from but can still perform? It's a big grey area with moralising on one side and torturing and raping furry animals on the other. Stolen Content) No, she never references any content she has taken from Youtube play vids. The kickstarter funding was for her to buy the games, play them, analyse them and make her videos. So far all she has done is put out 6 vids or so in 2 years (so, possibly doing research between, but given the way out of context parts of play she uses, and very very few of them being her playing if she does at all, only for her personal agenda). Girls only playing social games) Not actually what I said. I said that the 45%+ statistic is only valid when you take into account Facebook browser games. In the context of Sarkeesian, she is talking AAA titles etc. This is always a confusing point in the debate and gets people riled up. If you want to talk AAA games, talk about the % of female gamers who play them, don't add in other types of game to bolster your argument. It's misleading and disingenuous. Says about me) I think it says nothing about me, as I acknowledged there is an issue with the disclaimer that I think Sarkeesian is an opportunist/con-artist/liar/professional victim etc. and shouldn't be held up as an example to listen to. Again, let's take another of her points - the Strip Club mission in Watch Dogs. She talks about how misogynistic the whole mission is, but conveniently leaves out the fact you're there to stop a sex trafficking ring... Like I said, she distorts the truth to the point where any argument she has falls apart.

    NEW FORUM ISSUES HERE PLEASE (Atomic v.π)

    Just curious, but are ranks broken? I noticed Journeyman over my name tonight but I definitely have more than 128 posts. Over 6300 in fact.

    1.2 actually, gotta love those FSB fluctuations. I figured that 100 x50 is pretty much being there :P Temps were completely fine for the time it ran - idle in the high 30's so somewhat like a minor OC on air. Haven't retried again yet as I've been busy getting my PC gaming master race on after 8 months with only a console for company. I am pretty sure it will run for longer than 10 mins if I drop the RAM from 2400 to 2133 or even 1866. I saved the settings in the BIOS so I can re-attempt at any time >:D Oh, and even though it's a given, Hyper Threading was indeed turned off past 4.9 (boots and runs stable at 4.9 with HT, I think this is the 3rd time in a row I have won the silicon lottery)

    Never played Hitman so let me I understand clearly what is going on: people are giving her shit because she states that this is part of the normal playthrough. although it's not the optimal playthrough 'for points', it is an option, a very easily traversed option. it's a strawman argument. her point is that such scenes and abilities are the problem. So she can change it to 'possible' rather than 'normal' and not affect her point at all. Normal play through? The thought probably doesn't cross the minds of the majority of the players to kill those women. Yes it's possible but killing any bystander is possible AFAIK. Look at any of the "Let's Play's" on Youtube, I think it's pretty much only her video that singles it out and makes a point of it. I would say that 99/100 people just sneak past them judging by what I can see. Basically, her argument boils down to this - "Ooh, it's possible to kill these women even though it's viewed as a negative by the game. I could kill just about every person in this level if I wanted to, but I am going to single out a 5 second part of ONE level of SEVEN levels where I can make a point and bullshit about something". The women in question are not in your direct path to where you need to go. You have to specifically walk in there with the intention of killing them (something the majority of game walkthrough footage doesn't have). She specifically and purposefully goes in there just to do that to make a point out of a non-issue. They don't even really trigger any alarms unless you go to their side of the room and stand up right behind them. You have to traverse the room in a direct line from one doorway to the other while the bouncer isn't there, that's it, 5 seconds and no real threat of alerting them. Of course it's horrible that you can do it, but the game is set around a bloody contract killer! It could be 2 guys standing in a stadium locker room in mascot uniforms, it could be 2 sleepy guard dogs, but everyone kicks up a stink over 2 strippers getting killed in, I'm gonna take a stab here, ONE playthrough by a professional victim and shit-stirrer who disables comments specifically to stop people pointing out the hole in her argument that she had to do that purposefully for it to even be shown. Do you get it yet? She created the fuss about that imagery. Pretty much nobody else of sane mind would think to do that unless they were stupid enough to sit in plain sight and wait for the women to trigger an alarm. You can even grab a security outfit and just walk straight through the room standing up if you want. Sarkeesian isn't worth the time to write about, so I'm gonna leave the thread with, again, the suggestion to people just to ignore her silly drivel. Maybe she'll be worth listening to when she doesn't try to stifle any voice but her own and can do her research properly without creating silly little video diatribes. The only solution, if people feel that stuff like this is over the top, is to not buy the game. The developers will change tack to find something that sells, sure enough. Given that the game sold 3.6 million copies and maintains critic review scores above 70% overall (AFAIK), I think the haters like her are a minority. All this hooey about misogyny in games boils down to one thing. For the big title games, males are by far the biggest demographic. Games developers will always target the demographic which gives them the most money. I would like to see people like Sarkeesian make a game, I'd be interested to see the sales figures, because I bet you dollars to doughnuts that it would be a financial flop (hence why EA, Square-Enix, Ubisoft, Valve, Epic etc etc etc aren't interested). If they made something, kept production costs down and turned out something for that segment of the market, they could grab that whole niche and possibly expand it, forcing the AAA developers et al to consider changing their stance. Now there would be a productive use of these vloggers time that would actually do something to combat their perceived oppression. Producing games designed for women does not address the behavioural tendencies of those that don't play well in chat. Trying to keep the sexes /genders / separate is not the fix ... and besides it would seem a lot of femmes like to play the guys games. It's part of the reason for the shit flinging around, yes ? I cede that point, but other than whining what are they doing to change the situation. They usually offer no alternatives, just talk about how bad it is. Like I've said, awareness raising is a good thing, and some games really do need to stop their shit. Stifling intelligent debate with comment locking and victim playing isn't the way to go about it though.

    I had to waybackmachine the nastythings blog to read it. Her antics aren't just questionable, they are downright bloody disgusting. From that site: No, just no. She turned off comments so people like the Let's Play video makers can't complain publicly that she stole their content to make out like she actually played the game. She turned off comments because she isn't interested in intelligent debate and discussion on making things equal. She only wants one voice, hers. She IS an attention seeker. She got ~$150k to make videos, takes forever to put anything out, uses other peoples play videos instead of actually playing anything and when called on her shit, she cries that she is a victim and online media like Kotaku etc start fawning over her and giving her press. She is a parasite and people need to stop watching her videos and giving her air time. lol. she's an outsider who looked at the content and analysed it critically against a series of criteria. People are upset with her because she took money, saying she would play the games and analyse them. Instead she ripped off others work and tried to pass it off as her own. That's what riles me up. If you look at one game she DID play, Hitman, she goes out of her way to kill the showgirls/strippers/whatever and drag their bodies around before dumping them in a box. She rants about how this is so mysoginistic and trashes the game and the people who play it. What's wrong here? You actually get penalised for killing those women, because it has nothing to do with the story and they are just bystanders. She is doing things specifically to create something to whine about. She is not, and has never been right. She is a thief and a professional victim. She can preach all she wants as far as I am concerned, just without the fake talking points she inserts (see Hitman above) and the stolen content. There is an issue that needs dealing with. Listening to someone like her however isn't the way to deal with it. Like I said before, women make up half the gamer populace only when farmville/candy crush etc are added in. It is still predominantly male in the mainstream AAA title sector. Should this be addressed? Sure, but you can't expect game devs to add all the extra man-hours (excuse the term :P) to modify something like Hitman, or Assassins Creed, or Battlefield/CoD to animate the extra character models and their equipment etc etc etc for a much smaller percentage of gamers who play them. Majority rules in AAA titles, and the the aim is to make money, not spend it on 20% or less of the players. If more women get out there and contribute pro-actively without going "feminazi" then that's great, but Sarkeesian is not and should not be a role model or someone taken seriously.

    NBN - Is it too expensive?

    Which would be criminal considering on FTTP you get pretty much what you pay for, and on FTTN you may or may not, depending on a multitude of factors.25/50/100+Mbps vs "up to, but only our best effort, promise we'll give it the ol' college try" 25/50/"probably never seen in real world conditions that aren't for headlines" 100Mbps The network is a load of crap if we go FTTN. Cheap? Yes, and you get what you pay for - a cheap, nasty, unguaranteed network that is still susceptible to too many external factors and costs an exorbitant sum to maintain and power. FTTH/P is "up to" as well. Less "up to" but still "up to". 32 premises connected to a 2.5 GPON which can do 2.488Gbps/1.244Gbps down/up. GPON is shared bandwidth before you even get to CVC. It's basically DOCSYS 4 - advanced cable. Also, FTTH, our version of it is more expensive to power. FTTN wins the power argument too. I'd love to see where that's been stated - the power requirement differences. Even in that case, the copper is still a bucketload more expensive to maintain and replace so the "benefits" from that would be negligible in the end. Do it once and do it right. There is little to no reason to do one thing while the rest of the planet is doing another. It makes no sense for our global competitiveness. Rwanda, populated by subsistence farmers has installed/were installing FTTP last I checked. Pretty sure we can afford to set up our telecoms infrastructure to last us for the next century, rather than piecemeal minuscule incremental upgrades that set us behind the global trend from the outset.
