51-49 yea votes, confirmation votes starts tomorrow.

Fucking knew it.

In a 'shocking' twist, one Republican voted no, and one Democrat voted yes.

I saw that.  Which democrat?  This requires life-long shaming.

"Here is the story," Trump began. "I don't want to have them make a big chart. Costs too much and I am a business guy. I asked how much it costs to make a big chart. Like it matters but it matters to me, does that make sense? Two maps identical. Except the one on top was Syria. See that? The one on top was Syria in November of 2016," Trump said. "This is all ISIS. On the bottom, today, the caliphate is gone as of tonight. Pretty good. That is pretty good, right?"

Joe Manchin of West Virginia.  The 'yes' Republican was Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.

She was no.
 

But she will roll over in the full session.  Bank on it.

Manchin needs some sweet, sweet FB & Snailmail lovin'.

Ty for the specs. For the commercial OS, I'm prolly still gonna have to do a hackintosh, because I dont see being able to migrate back to windows anytime soon. cant even think about /usr/local.

Yeah, I still dont understand GPU's very well. when I'm doing neural nets tho, I know I need about 4Gigs, at least thats what works on the desktop.

So, instead, today I bought some chains at the hardware store, to which I can still somewhat relate. Oh, and now I need broadband or Mr. Thiel is gonna pull me over.

I was trying to teach myself to deglaze a pan, and accidentally made a small quantity of what I can only describe as "teriyaki caramel".
I don't know how to repeat this, and suspect it would be unwise to try.

I did a quick and dirty price comparison, and a GTX 680 4GB only costs around $40 less than a GTX 1060, which is listed as 3GB but is effectively 16GB of virtual RAM.  Given the difference, I would go for the latter as the price difference is negligible but having more VRAM is always nice - it will allow you to do other things while the neural nets work away.

Current Status: Well, at least 1080 is divisible by pi. Thar goes my future in IT and liberal democracy.

That number after the three letter acronym, I think it's related to the clock rate. Not sure you need that to be big if you're doing nets/demoscene art instead of full texture scene rendering at 60 fps for hyper-responsive high-end gameplay. If you were looking for a laptop, one of those GPU's may require breakout via thunderbolt. Just my 2 cent.

Oh yeah, for sure it would be overkill and then some.  But for such a small price difference, I thought I'd mention the option.

Could just be an ity bity resistor? Give us a ring next time, we have all diving certifications.

I for one appreciate knowing that that might be overkill— at least now I know which way is up. its frankly disorienting, this technology is.

It kept on whispering, "put that in your pipe and smoke it."
