I would agree the bridge painting is art and the photograph is not, but many people see photography as an artform in its own right, which I am 50/50 over. Certainly getting the subject, lighting, and composition right to form a pleasing image, is technically clever, and a skill I don't have.

IMO most people would view the photographic work by Ansel Adams as art.

Actually Clyde i agree with you on that let's send the nutters back there and save money on police and the courts and the jails and then drop just 1 big ass mother F^&*(* Bomb and be done with the whole dam area .

Aside of the evil you are alluding to I think many who are not in that "game" would be inspired to be proactive. What you propose sounds attractive because it is fast and cheap but I doubt it would have the desired results.

If you are going to go down that road my guess it is a farm reporting in a batch mode.

I would report the owners to a local animal protection agency and force them to keep it indoors or re-home it. I have dome similar things before and got the police involved. Ending up in court and a 5 year ban from keeping animals, protects our furry friends from neglect and abuse.

Trying to control cats is impossible, they do what they do.

Prevailing theory that I have read is it's because of OEMs. They don't really care about the underlying technology, they just need a model number increase with every year. Hence NV gave them the 800M series. Post-700 desktop GPUs are only being released now, at the same time as 900M series for mobile. So to make things consistent between desktop and mobile GPU names, NV sticks to 900 series naming for all new GPUs at this time.

The naming scheme just confuses me anyway. 700 series included 'big' Kepler, renamed Kepler GPUs from 600 series and first-generation Maxwell.

This is a case of if you can't dazzle them with your brilliance baffle them with BS.

Nice ad hominum


Thank you. Not usually my style. My tolerance must be slipping in my old age.

I think I'm a bit older than you.

It's gonna be a long time before we get fresh APs. We are paying now for the recent gluttony.

Another thread has established that Thor is the designer.

Glenn

Thank you for your numerous corrections to my misconstructions of science and common sense. It is a breath of fresh air to be enlightened by such an erudite scientist and educated gentleman such as yourself.

I understand this is a new program, is the data it will process split the same as we are currently receiving?

As I see it this is just a continuation of the Balkanizan of the world. Regardless of the efficiences of a group effort it is what can I get for me and ef the rest. We saw it in the Balkans, Iraq, now Great Britian. The world will be poorer, the rest of Britian will be poorer and the SNP does not care. They view their duty to mankind to be trivial.
