Re: The Battle For The Centre.

I'm pleased that my rounding off of the Skeptics Saga here wasn't in vein, it's rather dull stuff when gone into in detail and I'm glad to draw a line under it. I agree with " Sargon for all his faults still provides a valuable service... ", and I've referred to him before as an 'information crunche...

Re: Tracing the roots of the SJW

We were talking of the old-guard of Socialism/Communism above, the ones who never really bought into the intersectionality interpretations of Marxism, perhaps they will re-emerge and do a "back to basics" thing when this clusterfuck is over. How does the clusterfuck end? Stalin stopped the leftward...

The Left-Wing Cannibal Holocaust by David Cole January 02, 2018 Her name was Nari and she was the tallest Korean girl I’d ever seen. Six foot, at least. It was 1996 and we were on our second date when she started talking politics. Naturally, I assumed she’d be leftist. She was a student at UCLA…’nu...

Re: Security? LOLOL

My Linux system is now patched for the Meltdown bug and the microcode updates for Spectre** are applied. Windows user should probably use one of the checks available to see if these are actually active rather than just relying on vague updates that may or may not be doing what they claim. I haven't ...

Re: Security? LOLOL

I run an 8-core AMD chip - Windows 10 has updated today and I've noticed no drop in framerate on my most labour intensive games. That's not to say that something might be coming down the pipeline that fucks it all up - these fixes are rushed, under-pressure knee-jerk responses that will possibly - ...

Re: Security? LOLOL

For those of a conspiratorial bent, there is an interesting wrinkle occurring, but first a little history (again): Possibly through both having a hitherto independantly earned lion's share in the business market, Intel (hardware) and Microsoft (software) became intertwined for quite a long time and ...

Re: Security? LOLOL

At least we've established that 'security' is not a black and white thing. I would say that is a no-brainer, but some people might be tempted to go with it and then get pissy that they've been misled.. let the buyer beware is a good one to remember, especially as we had a stark scenario above starri...

Re: Security? LOLOL

Consider your doorway to the house. You may close door to stop people wandering casually in, a first level of security. People can still enter easily though so you put a lock on it which would be the next level of security. A lock can be picked however and even if the lock can't be picked, the door ...

Re: Security? LOLOL

There are three (related) bugs, one major one and two minor ones. The AMD processor negates the first two so I shouldn't incur the slowdown. However, I'm certainly not complacent which is why I'm taking steps and that is the way to approach things. I'm also documenting the process in the spirit of ...

We'll beg to differ on this one. I wouldn't get too used to having a secure AMD processor just yet - I feel there's more to come. :-) There are three (related) bugs, one major one and two minor ones.

Re: Security? LOLOL

I've just taken the plunge and purchased an AMD based setup. So after all that Intel PR horseshit you regurgitated above, you've rushed out and bought yourself an AMD processor. LOL. It's the Intel chipset that is the unknown quantity IMO.. that isn't being looked at (yet). However, with the AMD pr...

Re: Security? LOLOL

I've just taken the plunge and purchased an AMD based setup. I would be ok with the patched OS, even with the slowdowns, but my all my boards have Intel chipsets too and I don't think the 'partnership' of these with an Intel CPU has been looked at yet. So soon I'll be running an AMD CPU with an Nvid...

Re: Security? LOLOL

It takes a lot of digging, and processing power to get at those 'secrets'. The chip doesn't "give them up". If one takes the 'slowdown' provided by the patch, then there shouldn't be any problems provided by this particular ** flaw. I can only speak for Linux though.. Microsoft's patches are closed...

I feel slightly naughty mentioning this, but if they were designed with the flaw for backdoor entrance by various Western acronym Intel agencies, it may be of interest to note where the architecture was developed. The notion that this was designed as a "backdoor" is tempting to conspiracy minded fo...

Re: Still think trans women are women?

They're either very tough kids or they've been glued to the floor as a normal child's instinct would be to run from that monstrosity. It's quite effective conditioning though. Once a natural fight/flight instinct is overcome (or at least distrusted), then the door is open for even more egregious occ...

Re: Still think trans women are women?

'Multiculturalism' to me marks one of those points where we can notice that an alien concept has been slipped into our lexicon. This sleight of hand is usually quite subtle and continuous, but every now and again it stands out a bit more. Along with most people I didn't really notice this in the 00'...

Re: Still think trans women are women?

That experiment will be left to run its course though because its destructive nature is useful to those who wish to rebuild society afterwards to their own specifications. Or is it's nature actually defensive ? We already live in a society built to their own specification - multicultural. That mult...
