I can't for the life of me get fsi to be a recognized command in windows.
I can do
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\F#\10.1\Framework\v4.0\fsi.exe" <command> 

but just fsi gives me an error. How do I even path variable this thing, I feel like I tried like 3 things
set PATH=%PATH%;"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\F#\10.1\Framework\v4.0"

Hi /g/

I'd like a bot/script that checks dubs/trips/quads/quints/etc

Generally just one that frequently checks the most recent post number and extrapolates a rate of increase.
You also have to account for a small rush of extra posts around a major get, and for network speeds
/g/ is slow enough that you can monitor the most recent posts on the first page and submit your post in time for a get.
yeah that's basically it
There was a website made by an anon that monitors the rate of posts per board. I don't remember it exactly but look around.

Just got a 1060 6gb for £100

Not at all. I got mine for $140. With the alt-right in charge of the UK I hear you're all eating babies just to survive, so the value of a GTX 1060 is probably close to $0.
You can get to this frame rate on a 1050 on those games as well.
All you can do is crank up the details etc and they won't give you too much of a graphical difference.
UK is not even close to alt-right.
Not even the brexiteers are actually alt-righters, and the prime minister is a weakling trying to give her rear to the EU.
I know that's true for the 1050ti, I haven't actually looked at the standard 1050 really. I got the 1060 6GB because it was a good price point for 1080p gaming for current games and I was completely building a new PC. I upgraded from a GTS 450, and I was going to get a 1070 but I decided that doing that was retarded. My current plan is to ride with the 1060 until I feel like upgrading my monitor and my GPU at the same time. Everything else in my build is good for a while.

It will be implemented slowly when some retards will leave the their win7&8.
>It's overall just a very balanced architecture.

this, the dx12/vulkan spec has all sorts of different features.
nvidia read properly the use cases for each feature and the speed at which the industry would adds support for each to spend their silicon wisely when designing their architecture.

The few features within the vulkan spec they didnt implement (ie async compute) are not a big deal.
Think about it this way, your CPU doesnt operate imaginary numbers natively but that doesnt mean it cant actually perform tasks associated with them effectively.

You have to realize that when competing with an inferior product you try to create differentiation with whatever features the competition doesnt have. Problem in this case is the differentiation doesnt add actual value, or at least not enough to counter the overall inferior technology AMD has.
Dx12 and vulkan have been out for years and there is only a handful of games that use it. About 90% of games these days are still coming out using dx11 or opengl.

Dx12 and vulkan are fucking dead
I wouldn't go that far
go away man
what about unoptimized trash like Wildlands? What about upcoming games like Metro Exodus and Tomb Raider 3? Like hell the 1060 can run those maxed out.

it's not a mental illness if you don't have frinds of or family to care about
My cousin works in law and wanted me to build him a PC. He wanted Windows 7 and I decided it would be best to be 100% legit because of the field he works in. When I told him how much a license would be he backed out. Later on I found out how crooked he was, forging documents and all sorts.

This ones for you terry

I play a few games like Old School Runescape and Battlefield 4 and it's fun and it's what I do on my free time when I don't have anything better to do.

I don't hate all of video gaming, but here's what I don't like:
>most games made after 2011
>mobile games
(Seriously, just browsing through the Android market in the games category is super hard cringe, it's all goofy faces and stupid games)
>games with mobile-like graphics
(Civilization 6 prime example)
>gaming tournaments/e-"sports"
It's literally nerds sitting in chairs and people cheering them on, and people actually consider it a sport
I shouldn't have to explain what's wrong with it
>obsession with rgb

I grew out of them.
I'm 35. I like the older games best (NES/Gameboy/PS1/PS2/Xbox/late 80's - 2k4 pc games). I still play UT 99 and Quake 3 from time to time. I find that anymore new games are kinda lame rehash/ports of what came before. They take more effort into getting the graphics right than anything else. Or they'll take something classic and totally end up fucking it up in the quest to make it "modern"
RE2 is a classic. To me a "modern version" is take the game, leave it alone but merely update the code to take advantage of new hardware. Leave the control system alone, leave the story/room layout alone but update the graphics/character models to best use new hardware while keeping them (claire/leon/etc) looking as they did then.
Because its something that linux struggles with
"They don't make em like they used to"

/g/ is at least above that and mostly doesn't regress into a nostalgic child. Well except crt/vinyl/other retards but they're contained to generalsd
>RE2 is a classic.
are you as confused as i am that everyone seems to consider RE4 the best one?

captcha has been absolutely maddening ever since hirojewmoot stopped using v1
4chanX's no-script captcha is much more tolerable
get 4chanx and turn on noscript captcha
Yes have this problem. From my home IP and even if I use my phone on public WiFi. No problems if I use library computer. Makes me really paranoid!
the captcha docs does say they sometimes reject 'valid' challenges, all in the name of making it harder to automate
also your input, like mouse movement and duration to complete the challenge is monitored for the same reasons

It's ok without caching, though.
Some people want to still be able to see images while blocking scripts. It's not about stopping tracking for all. For me, I mostly just want to block scripts for added security and speed.
Type doesn't matter. It's not about images, cookies, css or scripts. If you allow any type, you will connect to a 3rd party server and they will log (track) your "visit".

The uMatrix repository explicitly says it will break sites and is only for advanced users looking to customize each website they frequently visit that can unbreak it.

I personally love uMatrix because of shit like pic related.

I'm a Europoor and I'm not an audiophile, so I don't understand why I need a DAC or amplifier for my HD650.

Can someone tell me what I exactly need to put my HD650s to good use? What type of cables? What are the best DAC and amplifiers? Do I need both? Balanced or not balanced cables? etc

Thank you lads

You need more power to drive your headphones, that's what an amp is for. A dac cleans up hissing noises whining and interference that shitty pc motherboards make when you plug in your headphones.

Don't fall for cables they won't provide a noticeable difference unless you are a bat with supersonic hearing.
that's why you don't use analog audio plugs on the back of the motherboard
same shit with the plugs in the front of the case.
This should be in the headphone general thread for the future but, you need a DAC because usually the default soundcard on your motherboard isn't great quality itself, but most importantly it won't have very good output impedance. Buying a dedicated DAC will improve conversion quality and also reduce mechanical noise from your computer, fans and disk spins etc, as it's a dedicated device outside the case.

An amp is important because it provides enough power to drive your headphones properly - get them to decent volumes and do so without distorting the sound. This is especially important for your HD650's as they have high impedance and so need something with a little juice. Speaking of impedance, a dedicated amp again will have the right output impedance to work well with your headphones. Having an analogue volume control is always super useful as it allows you to change volume outside of the digital realm, providing the possibility for bitperfect playback - audio streams where the digital information isn't altered in any way, providing higher quality music.

I don't like the way the drawer works on Nova


It does its thing, stays out of the way. Only default thing I don't like is that "favorite" programs shouldn't show up in the recent listing; however, that's easily changed.

T-UI is kinda neat too though, if you don't mind not having wallpaper outside of the window-swapper. It's probably the closest thing to dmenu on a phone.
