Dumpster dove some Quadro k6000.  Dunno if any work because my damn power supply is short a cable  :argh!:


My luck though is they're actually fried.

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

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.
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.


Many prospects here.
I like.

Cain/E.O.C:
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.

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.

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.

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.

Modded Unix, uncle mac, you mean apple shite?

Yeah they mold all their components, and inject with plastic save a mm in space, kill the heat profile of the device, you can never repair a faulty component, it forces users to replace the whole thing. I've been apple free since 2016 when I got rid of itunes, haven't had their hardware since 2014. Have never looked back.

if I may be so bold, could you be kind enough to tell us what you run?
(I did enjoy osX's free bsd kernel and bash shell)
(I might just get a 2017 and run a linux box)

IIRC some noob now owns git. so i feel a smidge less sure of myself.

[edit 1]
Q) Dear Axod, why is your knowledge of hardware so deplorable?
A) Internet porn, Sir.

I thought that his mis-represenation of the truth during his hearing would count against him. Now it seems like they were testing for that as a qualification to play in the highest court... in my days, they would have given /him/ the polygraph, not her.

World population now at levels which cannot be contained within the limits of novelty's manifold. This results in novelty compression protocols that make several individuals share the same (identical) experience of novelty. This results in a whole new wave of identity politics that takes the manifold itself by surprise (in a good way)

Fine, I 'need' some new computers in order to watch/serve the show. So I look at my favorite friendly purveyor of stylishly modded unix boxes, uncle mac. To my horror, they soldered all user servicable parts to the 'logic' board of their portable devices. If history (mine) is any guide, this does not bode well for my use profile... Also, I use blender, which supposedly melts the clock on this 'optimized' configuration. Does anyone have any advice before I get fired for using boxes that are over a decade young?

[cost is not an issue, apparently, but I'm not guaranteed full upgrade for who knows how long]


Never again buy from that person.  I have tossed vendors involving millions of dollars per year over that sort of shit.  Then I make it known that I did.

okay, but the other guy runs his ship like a hoar-house. at least he used to. not that theres anything wrong with that, except when you cant even synch 44kHz audio reliably. that caused at least one person to sprain an ankle.

I was just thinking...How many people that lived in the Matrix would be happy if they got rescued by the heroes?

I mean, they'd be trading in a half-decent 21st century existence for a post-nuclear frozen wasteland.

I bet most of them would be really pissed off.

Wasn't that like, a major plot point in the first movie?  Like Cypher decided he didn't care if it was an illusion, he wanted back in, so he sabotaged the mission so Neo can get captured by Smith.




How the fuck do I remember all of that?

The first movie was reasonable. The other two were terrible.

But yes, you are correct. Cypher wanted back in because "ignorance is bliss", the real world was more terrifying to him.

I can't tell, but something about this current Justice confirmation hearing thingy makes for a very "red pill" moment.
Something about decortification (sp?) and the desert of the real.

A procedural detective series following a forensic investigation unit tasked with determining how certain crimes could have resulted from strange attractors, instead of being intentional, accidental, or purely random.
