Oh... This explains a lot what is happening in our world right now. It all makes sense now. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunning-Kruger_effect
AndersonIt's only aggravated by our unhealthy postmodernist swings in society. Lots of people need help.

teh_saccadeSotha's comment re: cricism.
This is something I try to do in all things - students will better respond to "deconstructive" critique if it is followed by "constructive" critique of their work.
A compliment must always have some kind of back-hander, as people are unused to receiving positive criticism - in some cases, unable to receive it due to the disparity between themselves and the standard of their work.
A kind word (preferably action)...

teh_saccade...can make all the difference.
It starts with this.
Other people judge and qualify me (eg, I am not an artist, unless I am doing it and people say that I am).
I am not qualified to judge myself or others - only a person's work.
Critiquing the work depersonalises the issue and thereby affects condifence in other ways, without affecting psyche.
I agree - praise the work, not the person.

BikerdudeBut HOW has it been patched? directly in the chip firmware or some driver in the OS..?
May 03 2017 02:09 PM
kanoFrom what I understand, you'll need a new version of BIOS/UEFI. And that's if the manufacturer of your motherboard feels like providing one. (Just because Intel provides patches doesn't mean that vendors will pass them on.) And BTW: https://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/05/05/intel_amt_remote_exploit/
Supposedly this only poses a serious threat to enterprise users, for now. But what scares me, is how long before we are all at risk.

stgatilov"The entire network is trained in an end-to-end fashion on a large dataset composed of locomotion such as walking, running, jumping, and climbing movements fitted into virtual environments". I suppose recording the training set was a tremendous task =)

A moment of appreciation for Brutal Doom... Someone has finally managed to mix the good aspects of old and new games correctly in a way that creates something that feels new, but is not watered down. There is no two weapon limit, auto-healing, or snail-like movement. What there is, is a whole lot of blood and guts, grenades for clearing out monster infested areas, multiple functions for weapons, fast paced action, easter eggs/secrets, smarter/tougher monsters and an unlimited number of levels...
SothaBrutal Doom is awesome! No way I'm playing the old Doom after that.

teh_saccadetempt you with doom 2?
(that i paid £50 for way back when - 4 discs!)
Apr 30 2017 05:56 AM
could anyone tell me what is the name of the song that is used in Accountant 2(main menu)? Love that song.
GoldwellIt doesn't technically have a name but the musician who made the track for me called it "Dark Path" in it's filename.
I'll PM you a copy of the full song.

2017, the year that congress argues that degenirate 4chan culture is a "Russian propaganda weapon". The hackers have indeed taken over, but they aren't Russians.

Terrorist attack now in Stockholm? Will this never end? :( Fieldmedic, you ok?
SpringheelThe terrorism, and the general political response to it, is part of the reason those people are gaining power.

Chromecasting TDM to my android tv, works (only in windowed mode and frames are not smooth)
Today is April Fools Day... Ever since the US presidential election campaign and with the advent of false news and alternative facts, the day does not mean much anymore. It is more like every normal day is april's fools day, and what we really need would be a special day when only 100% verified and truthful news is published.
AndersonWhere's the fun without the complications?
Apr 01 2017 12:16 PM
SpringheelWouldn't it be nice if people spent time being skeptical of unusual claims made on days OTHER than April 1st?
