[03:09:18] <Bytram> Prices of the new AMD GPUs are attractive. At under US$1,000, the top-line Radeon Pro WX 7100 is "the most affordable VR-ready graphics solution," said Raja Koduri, senior vice president and chief architect of AMD's Radeon Technologies Group.
[03:09:19] <Bytram> That's much cheaper than the FirePro GPUs, priced more than $3,000. The WX 7100 delivers 5.9 teraflops of double-precision performance, has 8GB of GPU memory, and can handle four 5K displays simultaneously.
[03:09:20] <Bytram> re-read that last part: can handle FOUR 5K displays simultaneously!??!!!!

[03:18:45] <cmn32480> it was the ruling class in old russion
[03:18:51] <cmn32480> starting in Ivan the terrible's time
[03:19:07] <cmn32480> loosely translated it means "the state within the state"
[03:19:21] <cmn32480> it because what was known as the kgb much later
[03:19:22] <Bytram> wikipedia:
[03:19:23] <Bytram> Apparatchik /ˌɑːpəˈrɑːtʃɪk/ (Russian: аппара́тчик [ɐpɐˈratɕɪk]) is a Russian colloquial term for a full-time, professional functionary of the Communist Party or government "apparat" (apparatus) that held any position of bureaucratic or political responsibility, with the exception of the higher ranks of management called "Nomenklatura". James Billington describes one as "a man not of grand plans, but of a hundred
[03:19:23] <Bytram> carefully executed details."[1] It is often considered a derogatory term, with negative connotations in terms of the quality, competence, and attitude of a person thus described.[2]
[03:20:07] <cmn32480> the more trusted ones became the KGB
[03:21:07] <Bytram> I could understand that

[10:28:40] <exec> └─ 13Error
[10:28:44] <takyon> should this story be retracted?
[10:28:48] <takyon> it's basically a complete smear
[10:29:55] <takyon> it doesn't seem to be pushing the "Trump is actively working with Putin" angle but other than that it is pretty much speculation, no evidence, and already covered in the comments of our previous wikileaks article
[10:33:29] <takyon> if we need to replace it with something we could do a post along the lines of "How many U.S. political stories do you want to see on the site? We just retracted this Hugh Pickens story for being unfounded garbage. Here is a list of the politics-related stories (including shootings and war) from the past 2 weeks, tell us which ones should have not made the front page."
[10:52:07] <TheMightyBuzzard> takyon, personally i'd prefer retractions be in the form of a new story unless it's caught before anyone comments.
[10:53:05] <TheMightyBuzzard> for "all fuck-ups should stay visible once published" reasons mostly
[10:53:26] <takyon> this is about a story that has not been published yet
[10:53:36] <TheMightyBuzzard> ahh, rgr
[10:53:49] <TheMightyBuzzard> nuke dat bitch den, says i
[10:54:37] <takyon> done
[10:54:50] <takyon> I guess I should submit something to make up for that
[10:55:33] <TheMightyBuzzard> but yeah, the meta story sounds good just include a bit about "until a political type nexus that you can use to filter them out entirely is live"
[10:55:51] <TheMightyBuzzard> cause that's in the works if we can catch ncommander in a worky mood
[10:56:57] <TheMightyBuzzard> or if i can be arsed with all the other shat on my plate
[10:58:51] <takyon> I'm surprised that making a new nexus hasn't been simplified to hitting a few buttons, since there's already multiple nexii on the scene
[10:58:57] <takyon> or maybe i'm just entitled. work, slave!
[10:59:18] <takyon> coders are worthless! let's outsource it to india!
[10:59:27] <takyon> or detroit 2.0!
[10:59:37] <TheMightyBuzzard> well the first ones were created by ncommander waving his magic 2' schlong. the rest of us never played with them.
[10:59:56] <takyon> yeah I got that
[10:59:58] <takyon> too bad
[11:00:27] <TheMightyBuzzard> i'll see if i can break a few into existence on dev after i get bitcoin working again
[11:00:30] <takyon> this would be the literal best time to implement a politics nexus, so people don't whine about the stories every day until Election Day
[11:00:54] <TheMightyBuzzard> yar, i think it might even be possible with nothing but db changes.
[11:01:03] <takyon> neat
[11:01:22] <TheMightyBuzzard> well and a theme with relevant files
[11:01:34] <TheMightyBuzzard> course that can be pointed to the default one for now
[11:02:13] <TheMightyBuzzard> if i weren't on a laptop with chicklets for keys, i'd have a look today. going to have lots of sit on my thumb time today.

[11:21:05] <takyon> I have two stories set to not display. One is the mentioned Hugh Pickens submission, the other is my meta story about removing the Hugh submission
[11:22:01] <takyon> I'd like some opinions on what you feel is appropriate. If you want to go ahead and run the Hugh submission, I would suggest adding this interview that an anon posted on the previous Wikileaks article:

[11:22:09] <exec> └─ 13EXCLUSIVE: WikiLeaks' Julian Assange on Releasing DNC Emails That Ousted Debbie Wasserman Schultz | Democracy Now!
[11:22:24] <takyon> which addresses the Russian conspiracy theory
[11:23:13] <takyon> in the meantime I will throw in a couple of submissions to make up for attacking the content pile
[11:23:56] <takyon> definitely want to hear the opinion of Bytram|away since it was your story I hid
[11:42:19] <cmn32480> Turkey purge looks like a dupe. as pointed out by butthurt - https://soylentnews.org
[11:42:21] <exec> └─ 13'Turkey Purges Universities After Failed Coup" looks like a duplicate: SoylentNews Submission
[11:42:23] <cmn32480> have set it to not display
[11:42:44] <cmn32480> have merged the two stories on the undersea vents and posted.
[11:50:54] <takyon> got an opinion on the Trump story and my meta sub?
[11:52:49] <cmn32480> seems rather thin
[11:56:48] <takyon> witch
[11:57:29] <cmn32480> the pickens story
[11:57:46] <takyon> it even admits in the summary that there is no evidence
[11:58:17] <cmn32480> yeah
[11:58:25] <cmn32480> I'm not sure that one ought to go out
[11:59:50] <takyon> should my meta go out or just drop the whole thing?
[12:00:14] <takyon> if bytram or somebody gets on I will seek a 2nd opinion
[12:00:53] <cmn32480> I'd be curious as to the results of the meta discussion
[12:01:03] <cmn32480> we've been running a lot of politics lately
[12:01:13] <cmn32480> mostly because that si what has been in the queue
[12:01:24] <takyon> that and mass killings, which are closely related
[12:02:52] <cmn32480> yeah
