Not talking about their price specifically, but does anyone actually recommend Opteron/Xeons for their grandmother?

AMD One-Ups Intel With Cheap Desktop Chips

Decollete Re:nothing new (362 comments)

I call them not-for-me processors. When looking at price lists or benchmarks, I disregard Opteron and Xeon completely.

GCC Moving To Use C++ Instead of C

Decollete Transitioning from C to C++ (546 comments)

Although I am not a contributor (for now at least, maybe), I want to follow how the developers will transition from C to C++. I mostly use C at work but I want to learn C++ as well. However, most of the time, I'd rather code in C than in C++ because I am that uncomfortable with it. Maybe the last time I used it is back in college, and that translates to not knowing much of it at all.

Today, May 10, the Philippines is holding the presidential, legislative and local elections. It is the first time electronic voting machines are being used. I am wondering if the machines used are similar models as the ones being discussed in this article.

StarCraft Cheating Scandal Rocks Korea

Decollete Re:How is this news? (471 comments)

I guess so. Surprisingly, the word "cheating" only comes up twice in the Wikipedia article about Match fixing, and its localized to a single sub-article, which I assume is written by the same author.

StarCraft Cheating Scandal Rocks Korea

Decollete Re:When money is involved (471 comments)

Well, maybe aside from that, old players will never match the speed of young players. I guess this is them leaving their mark before their retirement, albeit a bad one. And also, that is, if Starcraft 2 does become popular. While what I know is mostly about fighting games, successors of the series really need to prove themselves in term of game balance and depth. Otherwise, these pro gamers will stick with the old version and leave the new games collecting dust.
