Intel Resumes Shipping of Faulty Sandy Bridge Chip

Archeleus Re:Most folks don't know what is in a computer any (203 comments)

There will be no need for a "Faulty Intel Chip" inside logo since its the chipset that has a bug, not the processor.

Nvidia Unveils New Mid-Range GeForce Graphics Card

Archeleus Re:More benchmarks (158 comments)

Going by this, this card ain't worth getting. My 480 GTX performs close enough at 1080p and it will keep going on for half a year more or so. Of course I don't mind reducing AA to 2x, you don't realise notice the changes when getting shot in the ass by Koreans.

I may get it after Deus Ex Human Revolution is out though.

States Letting Students Opt Out of P.E.

Archeleus Moar fat kids? (18 comments)

If not for P.E, then then kids who don't want to do it in the first place will never play a game outside or know the smell of fresh air. I firmly believe that everyone must do P.E, except for medical reasons.

Why Teach Programming With BASIC?

Archeleus I disagree about the notion that once you learn (709 comments)

BASIC, you are fucked. It's not like that since I was interested in BASIC as a kid and did pretty well at it too. Then I moved on to C/C++/Java/Python/Perl and all that and I can code well. I think that it has even helped me to understand some languages like assembly more.

Researchers Race To Recover Radioactive Rabbits

Archeleus Now that's cool (145 comments)

Wonder what mutations can occur given that the amount of radiation is small? Also, why wouldn't the rabbits children be toxic? Given its a female rabbit.

Latest site design

Archeleus Archeleus writes  |  more than 3 years ago

Is nice, okay agreed, but I still will prefer a plain HTML version to these JavaScript intensive designs which will raep old computers. For one, the preview button while posting a comment is taking too long. Also, I absolutely hate fixed elements in a page. Glad that its fixed (is it?).
