Re: Potentially the longest thread in history...

I would think the US dollar's value would fall faster than the Australian dollar's value, which would make the Australian dollar rise relative to it.
Since this is the US election we're talking...

Re: Potentially the longest thread in history...

Now, I think Implied Volatility is too high, which makes IV crush very likely.

Re: What is your favourite audio format?

Opus is way better than MP3.
AAC comes second, but has more compatibility.

2004 means 11 years. Unless you mean you were a lurker before.

Re: The What You've just Bought thread!

But why would you want Windows on a Raspberry Pi?
It's not going to run normal Windows programs (they'd have to be ported to ARM too).


I also ordered a Raspberry Pi 2.

Re: HP's "The Machine"

Sure, we have NAND flash. And yes it's much faster than using mechanical drives. But memristors should take it to a whole other level. At least in theory.

They're supposed to be:

Re: HP's "The Machine"

The key technology with it is memristors (also known an ReRAM), which if they end up ever getting to market, could end-up replacing both hard drives and RAM, into a single unified storage system....

Re: The What You've just Bought thread!

I like electric cars. But the thing that's holding them back is battery technology. Specifically:
1. energy capacity vs weight or volume
2. charging time

Let's see how well graphene...

Re: Best Laptop within My Budget?

Looks pretty bad.

From MSY, there is the HP Pavillion G6-2235TX
Quad core i7, and an HD7670M for $699
Probably the best CPU + GPU combination you'll get at that price

Re: Best Laptop within My Budget?

Yes, it's CPU rendering only.

I think first you'd need to work out what would be of importance to you as far as CPU, GPU, RAM etc go
What other games would you run on it?

Re: Best Laptop within My Budget?

For gaming you'd normally want a decent GPU - except for Minecraft, because it doesn't actually use the GPU. And I think it also only uses one core (two with the Optifine mod).

For other games,...
