  1. Apparently the AMD cards are good for cryptocoin mining. Ive had a few people tell me to flog off my 8GB 480, and get a 1060 or 1070.
  2. Every time I hear about the NBN, it just gets worse. Its like theyre actively trying to get rid of the internet or something.
  3. Damn son. But myrepublic... Commerce commission made them rename their "gigabit fibre" offer here, on account of it not actually giving gigabit performance. Not sure what youd need that sort of bandwidth for on a domestic scale anyways.
  4. Aww yis, ISP upgraded local network. http://beta.speedtest.net/result/6562561724 Tasty AF. Its nice to finally live somewhere with modern network systems.
  5. Eh. I have some fun with it, but at a certain level the game is just empty. The grind is its own reward, and as the corridors get tighter, and the map variety gets smaller, Im starting to get pretty fatigued about the whole thing. I cant even into CW, because prime time is just too farkin late for me to commit too (thx asia server timezones). Its a pity, because at its core, the gameplay is solid, and kinda unique. But that lack of variety, lack of viable alternate modes, and lack of any sort of narrative style content means that the game will only ever appeal on the mechanics level
  6. Isnt the cap mostly dictated by the server load caused by running spot checks? I dont see them changing that any time soon, unless they revamp their hardware in a big way.
  7. So some bloke names his clan after his favorite breed of dog and has a stereotype for an emblem. Its a little awkward, but I dont know if that meets the criteria for racism timmeh. For a comparative test, if there was some clan called DINGO with a picture of Ned Kelly for an emblem, would that be racist?
  8. By all means do it, but I dont think youre going to see any meaningful change. Or be able to attribute that change to anything specific. Could I guess be interesting to see how the draw rate changes with population, but I dont think those overall stats are refreshed very regularly.
  9. You do realise that the server avg WR is just 50% - the draw rate right?
  10. Fwark. We were so close too... With Turnbull looking shaky, our man might have nabbed the number one spot and knocked Greg Chappell off as the all time greatest trans-Tasman troll.
  11. http://www.nzherald.co.nz/world/news/article.cfm?c_id=2&objectid=11903860 Gold. In tanks related news, I just cannot seem to stop this slow slide back into shittery. For every decent session, theres an absolutely abhorrent one where I run at 30-40% and tilt like a maniac. Should probably get back to playing the tanks Im actually good at, rather than my gloriously cursed 263 and Blackdoge. Either that or get gud...
  12. Quit baiting him, i seriously would rather he goes and stays gone. His shit stopped being amusing some time ago.
  13. Would probably have told you that knowing how fibre optics work doesnt mean you know anything about cables XD
  14. Amusingly it actually works the other way. Fibre optics cables actually need a relatively high optical index to function, which significantly slows the speed of the signal. The bloke seems like a real winner though. For someone who claims to be a IT/Network professional, theres an incredibly poor understanding of how the internet works. The bits I could understand anyway. Nothing quite like a bloke who barely understands an issue and cant adequately communicate with the people trying to help him. Extra props for bringing up bandwidth while talking about signal delay...
  15. Hardware limitations mean that theres always gonna be a minimum amount of latency even for machines in the same building. Not a networking guy by any means, but Id imagine 5ms is getting to the point where the modems themselves are responsible for a significant amount of the latency.
