it over 9000 lol ;D best review ever
 "So here's the situation:

I wanted to give my computer a bit of a boost with this card because it's been executing commands in DOS pretty slowly and running Text Adventure even slower. My current build has an Intel 80386 running at 25 MHz, 2MB of RAM and an American Megatrends BIOS. This card seemed to fit the bill so I bought it. Despite my credit card now being in enough debt to justify starting a new life on Mars, this GPU is amazing. When I put it into my computer (which I had to modify on a quantum level to accept PCI-e), my computer grew legs, walked to Best Buy, bought Windows 8.1 and installed it on itself. At this moment my 30 year old computer is somehow running 8.1 with no problem at all despite my CPU now glowing brighter than the sun and producing enough heat to incinerate any mass within 2,000 miles of it. I had to bury my computer underground and run 2,000 mile long USB, VGA and power cables to my monitor above ground. Funny thing is, soon after I went through this ordeal, people started complaining about global warming. Probably unrelated though. So in short, great GPU if you don't mind living off of ramen and tap water in an outhouse for the rest of your life.

Hope you got a good laugh out of this. :)"

Dammit Loo-nix... Why when I want a program to crash, it won't... but when I don't want a program to crash, it crashes all over the place?

GUI? GUI?!?! Over the years, I've turned into a CLI neckbeard, and proud of it.

I'm currently diagnosing issues with the Polipo caching web proxy daemon. I only have wireless devices set to utilize it on my network right now. The daemon crashes at random times for reasons untold by logging or if I run the daemon manually to observe it's output.

I created a shell script to run from cron every 1 minute to check for the existence of the polipo process (since .pid files can be unreliable). If it's not found, restart the service. I added simple logging to my script so I can at least monitor its progress. I'd be happy to share it with you if you would like to look it over.

YES! Now this will be incredibly useful soon.
 
A step forward for real time effects in Audacity (effects that you can vary as you listen to them).  Audacity 2.1.0 will support real time preview of  LADSPA, VST and Audio Units effects.  

The image below shows the Antress "Modern Spacer Black" VST plugin effect, running in Audacity.  It will now run with real time preview.  You can for example loop-play the audio, adjust the controls as it plays, and When you are happy with it, click 'apply'.  This particular VST plugin gives a very adjustable echo effect.  There are many others.  

Kudos to Leland Lucius for progressing real time effects in Audacity.

We're working on getting Audacity 2.1.0 packaged and tested.  It should be released in the next few days.

I'll just drop this here for some old school anime opening themes. Makes for good coding music.

Not only is everyone gathering on Vulcan to remember Mr. Spock, but they even made a nice little blog post in remembrance.

#StarTrekOnline   #LeonardNimoy  
Today we honor Mr. Nimoy's legacy and extend our condolences to his family, his friends and his fans. You have been, and always shall be, our friend.

I often wondered how rich I would be if all the CPU+GPU power that I've put into Folding@Home was instead put into [rnd]coin mining... I've been running Folding for about 3 years non-stop across multiple high powered computers.

Is crypto currency really the way to go? I've done lots of reading about it, but if there is anything I've taken from all the reading is that it is incredibly unstable in value and even harder to gain any without doing dubious evil deeds to get your miner on all the computers you can.

I think maybe in 100 years or more this crypto currency, or even some other from of virtual currency might be the norm, but as it stands now, good old hard cash talks a lot better than what these current [rnd]coin currencies do.

Why does the Internet Archive logo look like a trash can? There is lots of great content on that site. Ahhh, I get it. One person's trash is another's treasure.

Went here when I was a kid. 3 of my best teachers ever worked here as well. 4th grade: Leslie Scatchard, 5th grade: Kirk Drygas, 6th grade: Loretta Parras. I doubt any of them are still there 25 years later.
