  1. Very good analysis of Heinleins Star Ship Troopers


  2. About women

      You can easily shorten this to "Never trust women".

  3. A great YT - channel for young men. A realistic, honest view on life with a positiv touch. Especially for those that grew up without a real father figure.

      As far as I'm aware, that can also happen in germany. You don't even have the right to make a DNA test as a man to determine, if the children are yours. And if you do, the test results you obtain arn't grounds for legal action. All in the name of "informelle Sebstbestimmung des Kindes" ... The child has rights, the woman has priviliges and you can go and fuck yourself.


      An other fact - women arn't equal to men, and we arn't equal to woman. We have different brains and bodies. Sure the average woman has roughly the same IQ as the average men, but the distribution is different. While women are more clustered around the middle (100), men have more outliers. Which partly explains the much higher number of male prisoners at one end and also the higher number of men in leading postions be it in science or economy. Doesn't mean there are no genius woman, just that there are fewer of them compared to men. Which makes the whole femminist push for more/equal women in leadership postions and hard science nothing but a joke, when they can't even get basic biology and statistics right.

      And that doesn't even touch the whole topic of gynocentrism and monkey branching.


      I won't deny that there are pretty radical MGTOW channels on YT, but they usually argue from a point of science, statistics and logic (at least the good ones - there are morons in every movement) and you don't have to arrive at the same conclusions/solutions.


      The guy I linked is pretty tame in that regard, but gives good advice on live in general.

  4. What resolution are those monitors? That aside: 1) For testing purposes disconnect one monitor, restart and run benchmarks like Firestrike or Heaven and a few games, compare your results with others while wunning these benchmarks monitor your temps (CPU and GPU) idle temps (empty desktop no browsers open or whatever) 2) restart and reconnect your 2nd monitor repeat above tests Furthermore this built looks like some kind of stew - picked random parts from the shelf, throw them into a box and stir them around A 980Ti has the same performance as a 1070 and there is absolutly no reason this shouldn't run 1080/1440p at max or near max setting with decent FPS. Also updating your BIOS to the latest version in combination with a fresh W10 install might do the trick. In the last months MS seems to have released at least one (forced) update, that might screw with performance. If you are hell bend on spending money, get rid of that single 8GB stick and motherboard and replace it with 2x8GB DDR4 and a good used Z170. That single 8GB stick could be a reason for some dips in min FPS especially when you have applications running in the background. A Z-series motherboard would allow you to use the full potential of that K-series CPU via OC (4.4 GHz at least).

    If you think that RT has any relevance for gaming in the next 2-3 years beside 2-3 prestige projects sponsored by NV and therefor you should pay a premium, go out and preorder now. You probably also believe in astrology and nothing can help you anyway. The amount of dedicated RT-hardware on that chip is not big enough to power a game at reasonable resolution and FPS, especially considering that all game engines are also new to this whole thing and need to be optimized/rewritten and game devs to need to learn how to use that shit. Atm the whole RT thing might be good enough to power an additional effect here and there (see PhysX or hairworks in the past).

      so i watched the first 3 minutes and i cant decide if that guy is a genius making fun of the whole "wemens are bed" reddid shit in a satirical way. or a fucking stupid moron. either way. i think even theese 3 minutes were wastet :(

    New Tank Game (Sim level with multi crew)

  10. "For the man in the field, the tension of constant warring very often resulted in a voracious sexual appetite. The outlet for this natural desire for sex was only available when a unit found itself in a relatively quiet situation. While officers and senior NCOs would consort with market girls, female volunteers and Wehrmachtauxiliaries, the common foot soldier was rarely accommodated because of his low rank or standing. The German Army considered rape a very serious matter and the penalty was severe. Local brothels, if they existed at all, would be unable to cope with the demand when a whole division arrived, and in any case, OKH opposed such establishments on principle as sources of venereal disease. Many men actively sought infection with gonorrhoea as a means to lose their ‘fit for the front’ category. (The other main venereal scourge of the time, syphilis, was barely treatable and a condom gave no protection. After contagion there would be a period of remission of several, perhaps many years before its effects began to show, and it was therefore worthless to the malingerer. Gonorrhoea showed after a few days, was highly contagious, did not go away and required immediate treatment.) In order to provide a sexual service and guard against its disadvantages, it was the practice along secure sectors of the front to allow a Wehrmachtfield brothel to be set up. For the purpose of preventing the infection and spread of gonorrhoea, these brothels had more medics in attendance than girls. Preventive treatment for everybody followed a sex session and was painful and extremely unpleasant, involving as it did a large syringe being forced into the urethra for the purpose of releasing 100 millilitres of a green sulphanomide solution into the genital tubes. All handling of the body parts was carried out by the medic. The disinfectant had to be retained for five minutes and could then be urinated free. It was reported that the latter sensation of relief was more orgasmic than the session which preceded it."

      Better to masturbate or just forget about sex in combat, because it's not worth fucking prostitutes, nor is rape okay.

      Well that about settles it. 

      WW2 officially sucked.

      ok not about HDDs so probably off topic but as far as i can tell you are one of the hardware cracks here and a fellow german? (also i cant do status updates for some reason)

      I need a new notebook and im currently pretty interrestet in a xiaomi mi pro. seems to be a pretty good deal. do you have an oppinion? also sorry for off topic and ill delete if this is against forum rules :)

      While I'm the resident PC guru, I'm not much into notebooks. I 'd advise you to check out Furthermore it seems to me that the notebook you have in mind isn't sold in germany/EU officially. Depending on the shop you buy from you may have to pay import tax and down the road have interesting experiences when it comes to warrenty + repair. Especially mobile devices like laptops and smartphones are harder to service and break more often than regular PCs.

    New Tank Game (Sim level with multi crew)

    Destroying a moying tank in a sim, especially if player controlled is hard. Forget WT and it's mouse aim. Furthermore you will also have friendly air cover and realistic damage models for planes, no WT planes with fire extinguishers in the engine and fuel tanks. But we ll have to wait and see ... .

    New Tank Game (Sim level with multi crew)

    It is, but as Magz explaines in (t)his vid, the game engine makes tanks possible and they are extending a developer mod to a 100km x 100km map (Kursk area). I doubt it will have much in common with WT let alone WoT. There is no vehicle research or crew leveling in IL2, you just buy a module (Moskau, Stalingrad, Kuban, Bodenplatte ...) that includes vehicles (planes atm) and map(s) - that 's it. There is "no" balance only the drive to get as close to historical accurate as possible. -> get gud, it's a sim after all. But tanks could be a big success for them even as a sim, because the barriers of entry are much lower compared to planes. And if they keep their current buisness model, it might appeal to many people.
  13. I wouldnt touch neither of them, at least until you made sure that you can upgrade the RAM in the 4GB model with the FullHD screen. Often in low cost models (or Apple) the RAM is soldered without the option for expansion. Trust me when I say two low clocked cores with only 4GB RAM in todays day and age becomes a pain in the arse even with websurfing the moment you have more than 5 tabs open. Without addblockers you better have a good old fashioned men's magazine at hand to bridge the site loading times. And I havn't encountered a 1366x768 screen I didn't want to smash the moment I saw it, if only because the web is designed for FullHD. And that is before the issue of picture quality these screens have.
  14. Side note: Sometimes bad thermal performance for GPUs isn't the result of bad TIM application (see above), but insufficient tightening of the screws that mount the cooler.
  15. With only 400€ you won't get far be it specs or (build)quality. I selected dome very basic specs (8GB, 4 cores Intel, 1080p) and you already look at ~500€

    Graphics settings

    A long time ago I had that "feature" activated by accident and I found it pretty irritating, when textures changed suddenly for no apparent reason despite a good framerate.
