AMD is finally getting back into the desktop CPU market. Next year they're releasing the "Zen" processor which is a 14nm quad-core with hyper-threading. I'm thinking about delaying upgrades until the release, just so I can support competition.

It should be a fine upgrade, since broadwell 's performance improvements are only 4% clock for clock

I recently got Sketchbook Pro and I'm really impressed by it. If any of you guys do concept art for games or toons, I'd suggest giving it a try. You can buy it or lease a subscription which are both half off right now.

You can also just download the free version, if you create an account you can use the "essentials" version for free.

I'm currently using the subscription version which I got for 12 dollars for the entire year. It's pretty cool, because I can use the same account to load the program onto multiple machines. So I've got it on my desktop, laptop and tablet. #sketchbook2014   #sketchbookpro   #conceptart

In case anyone is confused about open-source programs, here is a helpful guide. It's important to remember that just because something is free doesn't mean that it's inferior!

The open-source programs listed get their funding from donations and all the money collected goes directly to programmers and not a bunch of corporate executives and lawyers.

Found 2 really cool online IDE's. These let you try out lots of different programming languages and even compile. The latter includes languages like C, C++, Java and C#.

We could probably trade them breathable air in exchange for it. The air quality in that place is so shitty it makes Houston look like a rain forest.

SpaceX is going to launch a new Satellite tomorrow and then attempt to land the 1st stage rocket. If they succeed, it'll be an historic milestone in space exploration.

If you don't understand the significance of this, then let me put it to you this way. This is like the Superbowl for nerds!

Good luck, SpaceX!

I stumbled across a really cool youtube channel that teaches all kinds of obscure topics regarding coding mathematics. I particularly like the bezier curve lessons.

So, apparently they're calling the next version of windows "Windows 10".
  
It seems Windows 8 failed so hard they feel the need to jump a version number to escape it ... like they're trying to pull out of a black hole or something.

A fantastic explanation of Euler rotation and Gimal Lock. This is a must see for anyone interested in 3d animation or game design. #blender3d   #b3d
