@JourneymanGeek I agree
@allquixotic I see, thanks
 
2:45 AM
@Bob Did you see this one?
from the new terminal
 
Bob
3:03 AM
@MichaelFrank yea, saw that comment
 
3:41 AM
@JourneymanGeek lol that post tho
+3/-11
ow
Can you please post a screenshot of the deleted comments that Mari-Lou A speaks of?
 
4:03 AM
yawn
Morning?
 
whatsup
Again misrepresenting my comment. The best contributors are leaving in their drones because the quality of questions is literally going down the toilet, this is not just an SO thing, it's across the network. If SE cares about keeping its best contributors something must be done about quality, and new contributors who never bother reading the help centre and just come here to post homework questions. The vast majority of new contributors on EL&U post shite. I am not exaggerating. — Mari-Lou A 19 mins ago
I'm not sure that I interpreted wrongly?
 
4:26 AM
Leaving in their drones?
Muh bees
 
How do I report this? addtofirefox.com
 
To whom?
 
@bertieb that's what I meant to ask
where do I report it?
 
What is it?
 
4:35 AM
Ah
Dunno
 
4:45 AM

4:57 AM
Normally AMD processors do not come with stock cooler?
 
@Boris_yo ...no processors come with stock coolers, afaik
 
Maybe Intel only.
 
If you're buying just the processor, that is
 
Just processor.
Boxed versions should come with coolers you say?
 
@Boris_yo yeah, no cooler for you then. Either way. Intel or AMD.
 
4:59 AM
I know tray versions do not have cooler, do not have thermal compound.
 
You'll get a stock cooler if you purchase a PC with a processor, be it AMD or Intel.
 
Where can I find list of AMD Ryzen generations of processors?
What is 1st generation, 2nd generation, 3rd generation etc.?
 
@Boris_yo wikipedia
 
What defines generation? 1 Number after Ryzen or 4 digit number?
Ryzen 5 is 1st generation or what?
I tried Wikipedia but all information is mixed.
Ryzen 3, 5, 7, 9
Are these generations?
 
Is it possible in MySQL to check minimum and maximum possible values (based on the allowed range of values for that column)?
 
5:06 AM
@Boris_yo depends on the model. AMD has a pretty nice stock cooler
 
@JourneymanGeek Starting from which generation?
 
@Boris_yo anything older than ryzen is a bit not very good
 
Ryzen 2600 is quite mighty to haul today's games.
 
I'm guessing no one knows?
 
@DemCodeLines off-topic for this room
 
Bob
@rahuldottech Nope.
Every Intel boxed CPU, barring k-series, has a stock cooler included.
 
@Bob yeah I just looked it up
LTT videos have let me down
:(
 
Bob
IIRC all Ryzen CPUs also come with stock coolers.
Tray CPUs might not, but unless you're a large OEM you're not buying trays.
@rahuldottech ...LTT is your source?
As geek would say: dude
 
@Bob It's the only exposure I have to PC building, lmao
I'm not really into that stuff
 
6:21 AM
To his defence there's not that many good general PC building youtube channels
or even websites
 
 
1 hour later…
7:27 AM
@Bob I have this idea that everyone assumes I'm a gruff sounding terrier with a slight surfer dude accent.
 
8:06 AM
I'm calling it right now: FB's cryptocurrency is going to fail. They'll keep pushing it but no one will like it and eventually they will give up. Shouldn't take more than a couple years
 
8:18 AM
@rahuldottech eh, maybe
they're doing a few smart things though - like not controlling it
but without more details, who knows
and its not 'really' a cryptocurrency.
Its a fiat currency, just that its corporate, not government owned
 
8:37 AM
@JourneymanGeek Familiar with Jayz2Cents and Linus?
 
Not a fan of Linus
 
he's very annoying, but the info tends to be ok-ish
also, mornin
 
8:56 AM
Do you know if 3200MHz DDR4 memory has backwards compatible speeds? i.e. can it step back to 3000Mhz, 2900Mhz, 2600Mhz?
I saw a motherboard that has 2333Mhz, 2600Mhz, 3000Mhz (OC) and 3200Mhz (OC)

Does that mean that it normally works with 2600Mhz memory modules but when overcloked, can work with higher speeds modules?
 
9:15 AM
@Boris_yo yes
but faster memory can be a waste a lot of time
 
So there is not much difference between 2666Mhz and overclocked 3200Mhz?
Waste in terms of power consumption and heat secretion?
 
well practically - you'd see differences in some workloads
If you used an IGP you may see some performance difference
 
9:32 AM
Looks like for $1250 today you can build a system that can run all games smoothly with 60-75 FPS.
 
morning
 
Morning.
 
@Boris_yo at 1080p? Pretty certainly
 
Yes at 1080p.
At 1440p can still be okay?
I don't see a point in increasing resolution when you can enable antialiasing.
Why play in 2K, 4K when you can enable antialiasing?
 
10:08 AM
@Boris_yo I used to game at 1440p when I got my 4k monitors
 
10:28 AM
@CanadianLuke tis cool, right? :)
At our place we have some terrible big enterprise monitoring systems, and they are terrible and I'm like wtf is this crap.
 
@djsmiley2k kinda like my job ;p
 
in SG its cheaper to employe a dog person to watch blinking lights than implement @djsmiley2k's company's system
 
@Burgi someone needs to bite the human if he touches the computer
 
heh
 
@Burgi oh hell yes
i hate to imagine how much this system costs.
especially with how unwieldly it is
errrrrrrrh
'No route to host' isn't something you'd expect, from a locally connected subnet?
> inet 192.168.101.160/24
> 192.168.101.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth1
> ~> telnet 192.168.101.128 111
Trying 192.168.101.128...
telnet: connect to address 192.168.101.128: No route to host
u wot.
 
11:01 AM
is the device actually plugged in?
 
11:23 AM
lol yeah
something weird going on in vmware land i'm gonna ignore it for now
already blown up half the ocmpany this morning due to a typo
 
12:08 PM
@djsmiley2k Remember remember the... twenty first of June?
 
12:27 PM
lol
hey, a 2.5+ year gap is pretty good
infact might be 3.5yr
 
Since the last gunpowder plot?
Should we start calling you Guy Smiley?
 
1:05 PM
@bertieb aka Pay Day
 
kerrrching.
yey
the router I blindly configured, because BT won't give out any details because 8^&^£ you, works \o/
not that the site told us they'd installed it and connected everything up.
 
@Burgi Oooh, one of those things
I've heard of those
They sound fun
Have to work for 'em, though ;-P
 
1:32 PM
So I've been chatting with this girl for a few weeks
And holy crap she really can't start or carry a conversation
So the burden is always on me? Sdvffddvg
 
or maybe she isn't into you
 
@burgi She says she is
 
if you don't find her stimulating enough, get rid now because she probably won't change in the near future
 
Anyone tried RX 580 graphics card?
 
I mean she'll text first and ask what's up, and I'll tell her and ask "wbu" and she'll just say "nothing" and then... Idk? Either say something or ask me to elaborate on my response.
@Burgi yeah, true.
 
1:36 PM
@rahuldottech or that could be the clue for you to ask her if she wants to hook up
 
@Burgi Is it a problem to have relationship with non-stimulating girl?
 
@Boris_yo yes
 
Why?
 
because it is boring?
 
Oh I see. Maybe also because you will always have to do the talking and entertaining.
 
1:38 PM
exactly
 
@Burgi she's already said that she won't be able to meet because her dad doesn't let her go outta the house and doesn't allow (male) visitors
@Boris_yo yes. It's painful.
 
get rid then dude
 
Sounds like she's an introvert. Just sounds...
 
i suggest calling or facetiming her and guage her reaction to that
 
@Boris_yo introverts can talk to others just fine
 
1:40 PM
if the conversation dies then its time to move on
 
Especially on chat
@Burgi yes I might do this
 
@Boris_yo I have one
 
@allquixotic FYI: support.apple.com/…
 
@allquixotic What brand? How does it perform in modern games in 1080p? Would you pick 1660 TI over it?
 
Brand: just OEM AMD, not a particular brand, because I bought it as part of an Apple Developer Kit for Thunderbolt 3 eGPU
Performance: At 1080p60 it'll play modern games just fine. Super high end games like Unreal Engine 4 games will probably have to run on medium detail, but MMOs, etc. can run at max settings no problem and the framerate will be very smooth.
Pick 1660 Ti over it: The 1660 TI is $80 USD more than the RX 580, uses less power and delivers significantly higher performance (see: https://www.videocardbenchmark.net/compare/GeForce-GTX-1660-Ti-vs-Radeon-RX-580/4045vs3736 ) so I'd
also if you want to go with AMD, wait for Navi to come out on July 7 - they will have a card that's in the price range of the 1660 Ti but will probably be faster
 
1:47 PM
@Burgi okay you're right I'm done with this
 
Gotcha. Thanks.
 
@rahuldottech did the phonecall not go well?
 
@Burgi No I didn't call yet
But holy crap man
I'll text and she'll reply within seconds
But it'll be a one-word answer, so there's no scope to carry the conversation forward?
 
call her and ask what is up
 
2:03 PM
maybe she is just more comfortable with text?
Or is a woman of few words
 
@Burgi We've never called before, so I'm not sure if i should do that suddenly
 
you can't really guage a person until you've spoken to them IRL
 
@Burgi I have
 
at least for the most part
 
We met at a four day course
And spoke lots
That was the end of last month
 
2:05 PM
then she is better with calls
 
It's been text ever since
 
trust me
 
Okay I'll ask her if she wants to call
 
just call her
 
Afternoon
reads
Sorry, wrong chatroom
Oh, this is RA!
;-P
Well that sounded way less snarky in my head
 
2:16 PM
 
2:34 PM
@XKCD lol
 
2:58 PM
Is the PC wattage meter to know how much wattage my machine uses?
 
yes
 
3:21 PM
sounds lelgit.
 
3:39 PM
Help me choose
T-shirt that's slightly too small or t-shirt that's slightly too big?
 
3:54 PM
I'm going for slightly too big
 
too big
unless you're planning to work out, and even then, you won't do it unless you're already doing it....
hometime and pc reboot time \o/
 
4:23 PM
@djsmiley2k i literally cannot get any thinner
;p
 
get ripped.
 
@djsmiley2k lol I'll try
 
4:39 PM
@Burgi I'm not affected
 
 
1 hour later…
6:37 PM
:O
 
 
2 hours later…
8:58 PM
lol i'm so drunk
lets anwert
ffs
lets answer some quesitons!
 
@djsmiley2k What are your views on potato chips?
 
normally from above
 
@djsmiley2k do you think they're better than french fries?
 
hell no
but i'm presuming you're talking about crisps, not chips.
as I'm not american
 
9:17 PM
@djsmiley2k ah, we call them chips here in India
I personally think I might like fries a bit more
 
SO we're talking crisps k.
:d
I don't realy like any traditional crisps
 
@djsmiley2k ah okay
@djs what's your favorite cuisine?
 
i eat the rest tho
hmmm Italian i think
but i hate paying at resturants for it
because mst of the time i can do better at home myself
 
@djsmiley2k Ah. The only Italian stuff I've had is like pizza and pasta. Although I'm pretty sure the Indian preparations are very different from the originals.
 
pizza and pasta is all you need man
 
9:25 PM
@djsmiley2k lol, here in India we don't like to eat too much flour-based stuff. It's not very healthy, apparently
We're more about the atta (wheat) ;P
Similarly, brown bread > white bread
Speaking of which, it's impossible to find brown bread in Bhutan.
 
9:39 PM
I don't really like bread
 
I love bread
holyyy
Someone SuperChatted NOK 2,000 to a Linus livestream
That's 235USD
 
10:03 PM
duuuuuuuuude
I really want the zenfone 6
 
10:48 PM
@jou duuuuuuuuuuuuude check this out! Seems like a great option, right?
I just need it so I can have multiple displays while coding, mostly
 
11:45 PM
Seems good enough for that
 
@JourneymanGeek Okay so I have a question
All the outputs at the back
Are they just going to mirror the same image, or can they be used to extend the main display?
 
@rahuldottech They'll extend.
 
yey :)
thanks!
 
Probably not all of them will work at the same time though.
 
@MichaelFrank two?
 
11:57 PM
@rahuldottech Yea, you'll get two out of it.
 
@MichaelFrank great. Onboard video will stop working tho?
 
Not necessarily
 
Oh, so I can get three total?
 
Yea, it depends on the motherboard I think. I know what some Dell systems will disable the onboard when a dedicated graphics card is installed.
