Washington Redskins Stripped of Trademarks

Bleek II Redskins to Natives (646 comments)

Where I come from in northern Michigan there are tons of Native Americans. I call all my native friends just "Natives". It's only two syllables, it's factual, and it's respectful. The Washington Redskins could keep their logo, and number of syllables just by changing to "Washington Natives". Is this too obvious or something?

Behind the Great Firewall: What It's Really Like To Log On From China

Bleek II Re:I'm in reading this from China right now. (90 comments)

I've come from nowhere to nowhere, and I'm going nowhere. I never much cared for the illusion of somewhere full of somebodies full of themselves. That's just how I flow.

Behind the Great Firewall: What It's Really Like To Log On From China

Bleek II I'm in reading this from China right now. (90 comments)

I'm a chemistry teacher at a private school in Kunming, China. I use a VPN to get around. First of all half the battle is the terrible infrastructure here. I use a VPN to access everything I need to but I am constantly in a battle to stay connected with my 1Mb/s 500ping connection. If you don't have a VPN you are pretty crippled for most common sites like Google and social media. BTW Slashdot works fine without a VPN.

$3000 GeForce GTX TITAN Z Tested, Less Performance Than $1500 R9 295X2

Bleek II Re:64Bit floating point and compute mode (151 comments)

Could you provide an example of a single car solution which can provide 2.6 TeraFLOPS at 64bit precision while also allowing the user to run consumer applications?

$3000 GeForce GTX TITAN Z Tested, Less Performance Than $1500 R9 295X2

Bleek II 64Bit floating point and compute mode (151 comments)

The titian line in not a purely gaming GPU! The higher price comes for leveraging it's GPGPU CUDA technology. It's like buying a server hardware and complaining it doesn't run your games and well as an i7 which costs less. Game enthusiasts always ruin hardware news with their one golden spec, the frames per second! "That said it’s clear from NVIDIA’s presentations and discussions with the company that they intend it to be a compute product first and foremost (a fate similar to GTX Titan Black), in which case this is going to be the single most powerful CUDA card NVIDIA has ever released. NVIDIA’s Kepler compute products have been received very well by buyers so far, including the previous Titan cards, so there’s ample evidence that this will continue with GTX Titan Z. At the end of the day the roughly 2.66 TFLOPS of double precision performance on a single card (more than some low-end supercomputers, we hear) is going to be a big deal, especially for users invested in NVIDIA’s CUDA ecosystem." - AnandTech

Which desktop environment do you like the best?

Bleek II CDE (611 comments)

Because the early 90s nailed it. Excuse me while I work on an edgy new hip-hop mix tape and some screen prints. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C...

"Microsoft Killed My Pappy"

Bleek II I loved window for 19 years before I was a hater (742 comments)

It seems like MS is trying to find ways not to blame Windows 8. I was a Windows user since 3.1 at the age of 5. I've used every version including XP Pro x64. I'm a pragmatist because I use computers for productivity. So when 8 came out with a consumption rather than production oriented UI it was time for a divorce. Yes I could have stuck with lovely 7 for a slow death but I wanted to hurt my Ex for ditching productivity. Productivity is the only place for my loyalty. Hate MS for trying to turn my work tool into a media consumption machine worse than a Mac? Yes, I think I will. Long live the Cinnamon / KDE.

Bleek II I Like it. (2219 comments)

Make feedback questionair so you can get possitive feedback too. Not just a bunch of flaming fools. That's all. Nothing to see here.

I'm not sure how many of my neighbors were fooled by this. But I've been using it for about three years now in 4 different apartments.

Bleek II Mine or my family's? (587 comments)

I built my first system when I was 13 but my family has had a computer since I was 4. There is an order of magnitude difference between the two. I'm going with my family's first system which just happens to be 1000x from 8MB to 8GB, even though my current system is four years old.

Proposed Rule Would Drastically Restrict Chimp Research

Bleek II Re:Good! More social power! (134 comments)

Maybe Elon Musk will be our Zefram Cochrane. But we're still pre-warp civilization so we're going to have to wait a little while longer.

Proposed Rule Would Drastically Restrict Chimp Research

Bleek II Good! More social power! (134 comments)

Inhuman practices by research groups gives science a bad name, even if you feel it is mere public perception. This will help science more that it hurts it given advances in simulation and lab grown tissue methods of research. The more social traction we can get the better.
