Listen in to the audio of the WOW signal.

There was no "audio" of the WOW signal, just a sequence of numbers recorded on paper tape.

Any "audio" is almost certainly a hoax.

The Left is very Hateful and Disgusting.


Well I know many people who consider themselves left wing.

There are several on these boards, and I have found none of them to be either hateful or disgusting.

Here in the UK and many other countries, the "left" is considered a valid political stance.

WinterKnight...

Europe's problem. Europe hasn't learned from their history.

The USA doesn't have the European Culture of Victory's of the Marxists (Left) and NAZI's (Right).

Yes, we had Slavery. Which could not have lasted. If Slavery was not supported by European Capitalists. Who encouraged, and made American Slavery very profitable for Them, and the Slave Owners.

Unlike Europe. The USA does not (Unless The Left Succeeds) ban any Party. Including NAZI.

Understanding why NAZI is banned. Does not make it correct.

Unlike Europe. The American People appear to be disgusted with The Left's attempt to impose Orwellian Speech Police (AKA PC), Disgusting 'Free Speech' Zones on College Campuses, Bigotry against some genders and races, etc.

That Europe considers the above "a valid political stance". Is, I repeat, Europe's problem.

Question: Should Americans emulate European Culture, and ban The Left.

Answer: Of course not.


Well as you seem to quite often get confused has to who posted what, I will put your very broad generalisations down to the same confusion.

In case you are still confused I posted what you quoted not WinterKnight and as to knowing left wing supporters I was not referring to the UK.

Well I walk for an hour every day in my local park and have to admit I don't really have a favourite.

However I do like the spring for the blossom.

This was today.


Those are very pretty pictures, but the tree in the third one at the lower left looks a little out of it's natural habitat.

I wondered if anyone might notice.

They appear to be a dwarf plam tree. There are 3 next to the path at the south end of the park.

Here is a pic from last month.



They actually stand in round flower beds.

This pic is from last May as I don't have a good one from this year yet.

You see a lot of people stopping to take pictures here.



I have to say that a possible favourite are evergreens , they keep the park looking green even in winter.

The one in the centre here is a one I like

The Left's total failure to understand this, or The USA, is amazing to some.


Surely you don't have to be "left wing" to disagree with almost everything he says.

SETI-Germany was recently hacked and have had to postpone their Pentathlon

http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=79379

So I suspect they have increased security.

I have sent a PM to Bill Walker to remove the link form his sig, but there may be others.

The server www.seti-germany.de keeps putting up messages that it wants a login and a password. Anyone else getting these messages?

No, but then I run Adblock plus which can be used to block everything on the page except the posts!

It seem that it may well be in Bill Walkers signature.

If I take off adblock and click on his sig it takes me to a login page for seti-germany and asks for a password.

Or maybe some should just grow up after all if you make stupid statement you should expect someone to call you out and say your stupid for making the statement in the first place .

Stupid, in your opinion, that is the difference.

Everything everyone posts here unless backed up by solid facts (which is difficult to do as there is no 100% reliable source of information on the internet), is just there belief or opinion.

Things that seem stupid in America may well not seem stupid in Australia, and vice versa.

So if people could be a little more tolerant to others views and beliefs.

I was born and raised in South London UK, and even in this small country there are many regional variations in how people do things and what they think is the correct way to behave.

Just post your own opinions in a way that does not suggest anyone not agreeing is stupid and things will be fine.

As this appears to be 2 years old. I will lock this thread to prevent further confusion.

Seems it was 30th April 2014

Appears it was Twitter that got the year wrong!!

going into device manager and doing the driver update manually,


That gives you a basic cut down Windows driver that does not have OpenCL.

For crunching the only way to get the full driver is from the Nvidia website.

For my "crunching only" machines I only ever install the video driver. As I play games on this machine I install everything except the Geforce Experience as it has never worked correctly on this machine.

I would re-install the Nvidia drivers as you seem indeed to be missing OpenCL

Here are the lines from my machine

01/05/2016 16:09:00 | | CUDA: NVIDIA GPU 0: GeForce GTX 970 (driver version 364.72, CUDA version 8.0, compute capability 5.2, 4096MB, 3347MB available, 4045 GFLOPS peak)
01/05/2016 16:09:00 | | OpenCL: NVIDIA GPU 0: GeForce GTX 970 (driver version 364.72, device version OpenCL 1.2 CUDA, 4096MB, 3347MB available, 4045 GFLOPS peak)

Yours shows no OpenCL.

Did you get the driver form the Nvida website or Windows?

I would download the driver from Nvidia and try again

As I believe alternative technology is a must for the future, I will now unlock this thread.

Please can people stay on topic and stop the personal disagreements on-line. If you wish to debate other topics do so privately.

Thank you.

He was in one of my all time favourite movies, The Long Good Friday.

As someone said it was a "Londoners Movie"

RIP.

I posted:
These tactics are ensuring a Trump victory.
Why doesn't The Left understand this?

Bernie Vine replied:

Perhaps the actual people orchestrating these things do understand.

Bernie Vine...

Could you explain?


I thought it was obvious, if the Trump campaign has some really smart people, perhaps they might just be behind some of these so call "demonstrations".

It has been done before, organising demonstrations against your own candidate, to show how lawless your state/country is.

As you say tactics that could ensure a Trump victory.

Bernie Vine...

The latest demonstrations in California were orchestrated by Trump, or his supporters?

Specific attributions please.


Perhaps you might read what I said, "if the Trump Campaign" note the "if" and then "perhaps they might".

Nowhere did I state that they did anything, only that they could have.

Just speculating.

As I have already said in other threads in this forum

Other people will have different views on life than you other people come from different cultures than you, other people will have had totally different life experiences than you and will disagree with you.

None of the above makes them inferior or stupid.

Please be civil to your co-posters here, if you cannot be civil please do not post.

Note, calling someone stupid or having a low intellect is not considered civil.

Thank you.
