Rod Beauvex Re:Stop developing 64bit (242 comments)

I'm shocked to see such a comment from someone with a four digit UID. Maybe today the difference between 32 and 64 bit isn't obvious, but Window 3.x, a 16 bit OS, didn't become unusable immediately following the release of NT4 and 95, but could you imagine trying to use 3.x in, say, 2004?

Remember, no one needed more than 640k of ram at one time, either.

Ode To Sound Blaster: Are Discrete Audio Cards Still Worth the Investment?

Rod Beauvex You know..... (502 comments)

I recently broke out my old Live 5.1 to play around with on my PC, because I was having a weird noise issue with the on board sound, and Creative's 64 bit beta drivers did not work. But guess what, C media had drivers for the now ancient 8738 that worked perfectly. On Board sound is still bottom rung stuff, but at the same time the bottom rung has improved noticeably. Another thing people forget is that on board sound is still connected to the same bus that off board sound is. Usually what you get with a sound card is a better dac.

Chinese-Built Cars Are Coming To the US Next Year

Rod Beauvex Three wheeled vehicles. (431 comments)

There have been three wheeled vehicles and at least two different trucks imported in the past, but I'm guessing someone in the government didn't get their palms greased, or possibly they got their palms greased by the wrong individuals who didn't like competition, because they disappeared rather quickly.

NVIDIA Is Better For Closed-Source Linux GPU Drivers, AMD Wins For Open-Source

Rod Beauvex Better open source drivers, eh? (185 comments)

Is that why, on my HD6450, Linux Mint setup boots into a garbled screen, PCLinuxOS skips the desktop installation, and Desktop BSD just gives me a black screen when any setup method is selected?

Well there's the problem right there.

It kills me how people complain about how in a hurry they are and how they never have the time to do anything, and they never connect it with the fact that they're always gaming.
