        Different strokes for different folks. but the embody, aeron, leap and gesture are the ones to check out if buying a high end task chair, see which one works for you :D

        The more I sit in the Embody and slightly tweak it over time, the more I'm liking it, my back loves this chair

        You are so lucky!
        Mine finally (after several years) got repaired after flood immersion (do NOT let the seat get wet: water destroys it!) but I got happy in chair 1/5 of the cost. Wife now has the Embody. Cat likes it, but wife refuses to share!

        Critical path: 3ns+ -> 2.2ns. Is real time all that's typically considered now? Was wondering about cycles, and what clock speed you used to get that.

        Had an interview once where I had to provide the total clock cycles for a loop in Z80 assembly. Missed it by 1 cycle because the positive branch of an if took +1 cycle than the negative.

        Man that was a long time ago.

        when I say critical path I mean in the heardware for a single cycle, so the critical path is what determines your cycle time and therefor the clockspeed you can run the chip at. So we took it from passing timing at ~300MHZ to doing so at 450MHz with some reasonably minor changes to the architecture. Getting the cycle time down further would require much more significant changes we dont have time for.

        Yeah, to boot the DEC10 you had to feed punched paper-tape through a reader. And plenty of lights and switches.

        The VAX 8087 used a DEC-made IBM PC clone to hold the boot code, and essentially network-boot the VAX.

        I used qbitorrent for a long time on my desktop. The main reason I went with deluge after trying several was cause it allows you to rename files and folders within torrents from the remote interface. None of the others let me do that in the webui they have

        Transmission lets you do that with the remote GUI. I have 970+ torrents seeding with transmission and only use QBT for new downloads. It’s kind of cumbersome. Maybe I’ll give deluge a shot.

        also with Deluge you dont have to use a webUI, you can just use the normal app, and connect to the remote daemon, which is also nice

        Ah, but that's not something app programmers usually think about. They consider it a system-level problem. Or a library problem. There are some libraries that "do the work" and throw it away because it's unneeded, simply for that reason, tho.

        Actually, the reality is that most apps will run just as fast without a bunch of threads.

        Just the look and feel of things, basically. It's a relatively faithful adaptation of the manga, but the animation doesn't match the quality of S1.

        Also I just hate the HDR-looking style JC employs.

        It's too faithful to me, in that they don't actually flesh out movements and just substitute with special effects. Like I said earlier, pretty much the manga with colours and audio thrown in.

        I could rewatch S1 no problem, but S2 feels like they're just going through the motions (or the panels, to be precise), to the point that 90s anime seem to have better action.

        Dude, go Pentax and hunt for the their old SMC-series manual lenses. They have no AF or AP functionality but do have sharpness and crisp colours you will love. I would almost recommend Nikon but that Nikon/Nikkor brand commands high prices and Nikon does not understand the importance of legacy lenses like Pentax.

        I was reading a blog post on cheap used lenses today. It is all very interesting, and my one legacy lens does offer rewards all its own, but in general... Yes, one can buy lots of cheap lenses like that, but then why did I buy a body with sophisticated autofocus mechanisms. Might as well have bought an older camera too.

        My next camera will be a Pentax K5 or K50/70. After that I am done with big DSLRs. If I had been a Nikonian I would have chased the D700/750, gotten the legacy lenses and stopped a long time ago.

        More interested in something for open cans that keeps the soundstage & air, but would block the music from disturbing coworkers. And absorbs or greatly attenuates vs. reflecting.

        But this could certainly be used for subwoofer tuning.

        There are YTers who rip the shit out of their Ferraris and R8s. Just saying it is a sad old story that having money automatically means zero competence. In some cases yes, but I never cared for these people. Koenigsegg is more of a technology statement anyway. At least they drive the industry forward with new and cool designs like upper mentiond valve tech.

        That’s not quite true, a lot of koenigsegg owners I think really like the idea of breaking records, so customer cars frequently get used to attempt records at tracks and stuff, or the Agera RS that was used to set the top speed record several months ago
