Broadcom Releases Source For Graphics Stack; Raspberry Pi Sets Bounty For Port

burisch_research Asustek Extreme4 (77 comments)

On a related topic, I had an issue with my motherboard, which hasn't been resolved. It's an Asrock Z87 Extreme4. Running Windows 7 - I notice that the first hyperthread of my i7 4770k is pegged at 50%. Lots of digging, it looks like it might be a faulty design, putting the intel management engine and the USB subsystem on the same interrupt. What do you lot think?

Another Possible Voynich Breakthrough

burisch_research Re:Schizophrenia (160 comments)

One of my father's patients claimed to visit another world frequently and wrote a very long book detailing the world and its inhabitants

I would be interested to see this book -- is there any way to get a copy?

Oops, correct, neither of those are fraud. But all are stealing, whether that is illegal or not.

burisch_research Fraud (240 comments)

This is, simply, fraud. It's the same as snatching a purse or looting a shop.

Virtual Boss Keeps Workers On a Short Leash

burisch_research Re:Virtual slave (664 comments)

That's the least impressive option, as it's a 50 line script that inserts something from the list of "steak house", "golf course", "mistress", and several less palatable options.

New England Burns Jet Fuel To Keep Lights On

burisch_research Re:[OT] mmBtu? (230 comments)

Err, maybe I'm completely misinterpreting every other post in this thread, but as far as I can make out -- mBTU == kiloBTU; mmBTU == megaBTU. I think you're wrong here, maybe?

Will Electric Cars and Solar Power Make Gasoline and Utilities Obsolete?

burisch_research Re:Energy density. (734 comments)

I don't know why no EV manufacturer has thought of this:

Build a small generator / fuel tank into a TRAILER that you can hook up to your EV. This gives you the best of both worlds: for short, around-town trips, you leave the range extender trailer at home; but, when you want to drive long distance, just hook up the trailer and you can travel an arbitrarily long distance. Given the incredible efficiency of EVs, it's likely that a well-designed range extender trailer could give you several thousand kilometres of range.

Is Ruby Dying?

burisch_research Re:Short answer: no (400 comments)

An historic X would be correct (the adjective starts with a vowel). So would an eulogy (y is really a vowel, in this case).

In both cases, I disagree, because it's just dumb. But that's the rule ... can we change the rule?
