[QUOTE=Fatal-Error;30184747]Games shouldn't rely on subatomic particles. I don't want to think about the response to this.[/QUOTE] Well, most quantum computers use photons. Photons are technically not subatomic particles because they are not a component of atoms. You could probably devise a similar functional quantum computer using gluons, or W or Z bosons. One of the neutrinos might also be usable. And if you still aren't satisfied with that, you could figure out a way to perform calculations via ghost fields.
oh god what if your gpu overheats :psyduck: nuclear meltdown or your motherboard explodes?

Valve :v: [quote]Greetings citizens! We'll be updating some of the Steam servers today, June 1 2011, around 15:30 PDT (GMT-0700). Chat, game lobbies, and the community web site will be affected. Content downloads and game play should not be affected. There is little database maintenance scheduled for this update, and I will be urging the hamsters to spin the wheels ever faster, so the downtime should be short. [/quote]
Poor server hamsters :saddowns: .

Also for some reason i can install a Pentium 4 630 but i can't install a 631 because "DURP IT NO SUPPORT :downs:" the only difference is the 630 is 90nm and the 631 is 65nm NOTHING ELSE. AUTOMERGE :argh:

So I've recently been showing a friend at school the basics of Hammer Editor and Source SDK in general. He's already fairly experienced with UDK and he's pretty used to how those tools work. I was showing him different methods on optimizing his maps and I was showing how useful using Func_details details could be when messing with visibility. After I told him, he selected his [B]entire map[/B] and func_detailed it.Without telling me and tried to compile his map. Needless to say, literally his entire map was a leak. Gosh, we need a mapping-illiterate people who think they know things thread.
Did you tell him func_details will not seal it from the void (or show what the cordon tool is)?
I think we need some func_content.
[QUOTE=WebOfTrust;30189179]Did you tell him func_details will not seal it from the void (or show what the cordon tool is)?[/QUOTE] No, though I previously stated that Brush entities wouldn't seal the void. I guess it never occurred to him.

[QUOTE=Goz3rr;30176047]I would like to have a word with all the macfags out there: So today my sister got her 13" mac again, after it dropped from the table and destroyed the charge IC. You always hear macs are so expensive because its their awesome support you are paying for, [b]NOT[/b]. So the charger IC is a 10 euro component, secured by two screws to the case. So instead of replacing this component, they pushed it back (While the screwholes were damaged) and screwed it back in calling it 'fixed' (Do note, this was done by an official Apple certified technician, not a IT guy from school, these aren't even allowed to open the macbooks up). And so when she got it back, attached the MagSafe charger, the exact same problem occurred. The repair note said they replaced a component, but you could clearly see it was the exact same charger IC.[/QUOTE] Oh wow. This is EXACTLY what happened to my Macbook.
That update to OS X to combat that MacDefender thing? Got fucked over in 8 hours. Nice, Apple.

[QUOTE=Political Gamer;30191283][url=http://optimization.interlopers.net/]He should have read this first[/url][/QUOTE] I actually showed him that afterwards. It seemed to help out alot. Now I'm onto showing him how to import materials/models and how to mount FGDs and the like. Boy, this will be fun considering he's used to the whole 'click and drag' aspect of some other engines.
I think I accidentally deleted the settings on my router that handle network connections.
Since I'm getting a new router from Newegg.ca free of charge and they're letting me keep the broken one (Which bricked when I tried upgrading Tomato), I'm going to solder together a JTAG adapter tomorrow and try unbricking my router. Since I can solder on a serial header to this router, the amount possible uses for it make it very interesting. One use that comes to mind is hooking it up my Arduino and sending commands over wifi and telnet. If it doesn't work out, then I didn't really lose anything except for some time.
I have an uninsulated Firewire cable hanging 2 inches away from my foot I feel incredibly safe!
Eugh, this was rough. I just finished writing up my presentation for my Network Security class. This was the presentation that caused nigh-apocalyptic rage trying to prepare back on Tuesday, I remind you. I decided to completely throw everything out and change to a vastly different subject. Rather than Linux auditing/logging, I'm covering Linux file permissions, su/sudo permissions, and Samba share security. Including a rather fun-looking interactive bit, where they SSH in and follow a trail of instructions, almost like a scavenger hunt. Instructions including such gems as "Should your teammate have failed to properly set their permissions, and you find you have write access to their document, you are authorized to leave a humiliating message there noting such, as punishment for their lack of vigilance." Or my personal favorite: "5) Attempt to run the program "adduser" to create a new user. Note that this is impossible. 6) However, failure is not an option. Use sudo to elevate your permissions to be able to run adduser." And yes, I included the [url=http://xkcd.com/149/]XKCD Sandwich strip[/url] in the powerpoint. Note to self: create a makefile with the target "me a sandwich" that requires root access to perform, so that you can actually type "make me a sandwich" and "sudo make me a sandwich". Since the teacher wants to be a bit lazy on the exam, I had to write a ten-question multiple-choice quiz on the stuff I covered. It should be relatively simple for anyone who's used Linux much. Should I paste it in here for you guys?
