  1. Re: The disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.

    So you've seen an ocean calm. They are common, especially near the tropics (look up "doldrums"). On what way does that make you an expert and me ignorant about ship and aircraft disappearances?

    Re: Ban assault knives!!!

    The answer to both your questions is: because nobody died. Yes, of course you can kill people with a knife, but it's a **** of a sight easier to do it with a gun. And spree killings are vastly easier...
  3. Re: The disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.

    Nope, there are precisely zero of them.

    I'm not sure if you are being serious, so...

    Let's start with the fact the thing that links these so-called mysterious areas is the high amount of...
  4. Re: The disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.

    You say huge, but seem to fail to follow that through? Have you any idea how many ships disappear without trace every year? And they are a lot bigger than planes. If the plane came down in...
  5. Re: The disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.

    Did you read up properly on the fire on board scenario. As soon as the fire is detected, pilots do two things: they switch everything off, and they fly towards safety. SWITCH EVERYTHING OFF. If it...
  6. Re: The disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.

    Also did I miss something, but did the same group of people who say Obama couldn't organise a **** in a brothel say that he could keep a downed 777 secret?
  7. Re: The disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.

    It's on the bottom of the Indian Ocean, and the reason why we haven't heard from anyone on board is the obvious one. People seem to have some strange idea that because they are spied on in their own...
  8. Re: The disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.

    Although it has a couple of holes, the fire on board scenario still looks best. It least it actually makes sense. The main argument against is the later course change, but that could be explained an...
  9. Re: Kingston Technology 2x 512MB DDR1 suggested timings

    Start with a 2T Command Rate. That one setting makes more difference than anything else. You'll lose about 10% performance, but if it's speed you are after...

    Re: Having an issue with my Gateway tower

    Out of interest, what was wrong? Or is it too embarrassing? My most recent was after moving: I could only get screen #2 of the dual-screen to come on, and only as a blank screen showing just a mouse...

    Re: To OC or not to OC !!!

    Do you need to? No.

    Should you? Yes.

    Will you lose data? You shouldn't, and anyway, surely you back up everything important?

    Re: AMD vs Intel

    Not easily. For a start, you'd need to take into account not just speed and design, but cost. AMD compete at least as much on price as performance. I'm sure there's a "bang-per-buck" table out there...

    Re: Best PSU for handling 2 Quadro K6000s

    I think at 850W would be cutting it a bit fine personally, although it's probably doable. I tend to err towards 1000or 1200W units, usually by Corsair. But I agree that a 1600W is massive overkill,...

    Re: PC Video Output

    True, but not very helpful for the OP!


    But yes, it's getting more common. Some monitors are the same: only SVGA or HDMI input.
  15. Re: Forceware 162.65 WHQL display settings gone?!

    I have a very vague recollection of something like this happening, many years ago - when those drives were current. But from the same vague memory I was forced to uninstall the drivers, scrub the...
  16. Re: Dead video card pt 2 - replacing thermal pads

    Pads? Do you intend to take this thing apart again? If not, I'd go for thermal epoxy.
  17. Re: [solved]Video card with birdshot patterned square artifacts at 2D desktop

    The GPU is not the only thing which can overheat - a few years ago I had to have a GTX8800 replaced (by BFG - I miss them) after the RAMDAC started overheating. No, I don't know why.
  18. Re: [solved]Video card with birdshot patterned square artifacts at 2D desktop

    I can't think of any such test off-hand, but I'm inclined to agree that one card is over-heating. From experience, this does NOT require heavy loading - lighter loading just delays the onset.

    Re: AMD fails at Eyefinity and Surround in CFx

    OK we're straying OT here, but I'm in charge so I'll allow it. First, what memory leak? I can play the game for eight hours solid without issue? If you mean "some people have a memory leak" that's a...

    I give up: why is it Bethesda's fault if third-party mods slow the game down?

    Have you tried a different mouse? Is the mouse wireless? If so, try a wired one.

    Re: i have problems with GTX 760

    Look up a couple of posts. It's possible the monitor is an issue, but I'm not certain. The CPU and RAM look up to the job, but the PSU is a bit weak. That wouldn't cause this problem though. If the...

    Re: i have problems with GTX 760

    Stop running it in Ultra? Seriously, dial the settings down and see if it stops. Keep the res, but in particular drop FSAA to about 2 and AF to about 8. See what it's like then. If you have shadows...
