So I think I killed another motherboard.

RIP: GIGABYTE GA-X79-UD3 Apr 2012 - Aug 2014
RIP: MSI X79A-GD45+ Aug 2014 - Jan 2016

I think it's the i7-3820 Sandy Bridge-E that just wrecks em.

I'm thinking it's the motherboard or CPU, and not the RAM, because:

2x 4gb in 128 bit mode = Ramtest locks up consistently
Either stick individually = Random amount of time until pictured error, at different memory locations

The other day I switched the RAM to XMS 1600 mhz and played Fallout for a few days. Yesterday I started the computer, windows explorer wouldn't open, and iheartradio was just scrolling through the songs.

There's not really much you can do about windows 10 updates. It needs security updates as much as windows ever has, but now there's no good way to separate a fix for a zero day from anti-anti-telemetry measures.

If you don't want updates, you basically need to have some kind of network whitelist, which is a noscript level of pain in your ass.

>cool tech the cops will be using on you in about 10 years

Little noticed amid the daily news bulletins about the Islamic State and Syria, the Pentagon has begun a push for exotic new weapons that can deter Russia and China.

Pentagon officials have started talking openly about using the latest tools of artificial intelligence and machine learning to create robot weapons, “human-machine teams” and enhanced, super-powered soldiers. It may sound like science fiction, but Pentagon officials say they have concluded that such high-tech systems are the best way to combat rapid improvements by the Russian and Chinese militaries.
These potentially revolutionary U.S. weapons systems were explained in an interview last week by Robert Work, the deputy secretary of defense, and Air Force Gen. Paul Selva, the vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Their comments were the latest in a series of unusual recent disclosures about what, until a few months ago, was some of the military’s most secret research.

“This is how we will make our battle networks more powerful, hopefully, and inject enough uncertainty in the minds of the Russians and the Chinese that, you know, if they ever did come to blows with us, would be able to prevail in a conventional [non-nuclear] way. That, for me, is the definition of conventional deterrence,” Work explained.

Within the Pentagon, this high-tech approach is known by the dull phrase “third offset strategy,” emulating two earlier “offsets” that checked Russian military advances during the Cold War. The first offset was tactical nuclear weapons; the second was precision-guided conventional weapons. The latest version assumes that smart, robot weapons can help restore deterrence that has been eroded by Russian and Chinese progress.

Gen. Joseph F. Dunford, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, voiced an early warning during his confirmation hearing in July when he said that Russia posed the greatest “existential” threat to the United States. Work said in a recent speech that because the United States has focused on the Middle East since 2001, “our program has been slow to adapt as these high-end threats have started to re-emerge.”

The Pentagon’s 2017 budget includes some money to prime the high-tech pump: $3 billion for advanced weapons to counter, say, a Chinese long-range attack on U.S. naval forces; $3 billion to upgrade undersea systems; $3 billion for human-machine teaming and “swarming” operations by unmanned drones; $1.7 billion for cyber and electronic systems that use artificial intelligence; and $500 million for war-gaming and other testing of the new concepts.

>“Imagine if we are unprepared to counter such capabilities in the hands of our adversaries,” the board warned.
This makes no sense. Russia and China are building drones... therefore we must build drones to counter their drones. How will a cop drone in New York counter a Russian mil drone somewhere in the middle east, this sounds imbecilic in the extreme. The counter to drones is electronic warfare, not other drones.

While these idiots are busy building cop drones WITH NO OTHER PURPOSE THAN OPPRESSING AMERICAN CIVILIANS they have allowed America to lag in electronic warfare, so that when these optimus prime drones are eventually deployed they won't function for very long. Russia and China have far better hackers all in service of the state, meanwhile the cream of the American crop releases sluts dating info and is sent to prison. Russia and China are testing high tech EWAR devices directly against American systems in the middle east, while America has yet to build anti-drone EWAR systems. Closest thing America has to an EWAR program is NSA blackmailing computer manufacturers to put hardware bugs inside the box.

>a small “Perdix” micro-drone, less than a foot long, which flew with 25 of its mates in a tight grid last summer after being launched from a large plane
Let's spend billions on sophisticated autonomous drone control software that Russia will be able to copy from the first drone they bring down with their <$1 million EWAR truck or a $150 shotgun, that sounds like a plan.

Since Open Carry of handguns became legal in Texas, dozens of businesses I used to frequent in the Houston area have been putting up 30.06 AND 30.07 signs that ban both open AND concealed carry. For reference, Texas requires a CHL in order to open carry a handgun.

..Rant..
I don't have a problem with places that only ban open carry, but fuck, 2/3rds of the gas stations near my house banned both. My favorite comic book/gaming store banned both; some of these places I was on a friendly customer basis with the employees and owners; I even emailed one of them, and his literal response was 'people are welcome at my store, guns are not'.
../rant..

Aside from not giving my business to a place that bans concealed carry, what can I do? To OPERATORS in other states, was there a similar effect if your state of residence recently legalized open carry? What did you do?

I used to spot Texas Rangers open carrying in Austin some times, small badge, sometimes they would have the hat, otherwise no obvious sign of being law enforcement.

I would ask other people if they had seen them and almost always they would say no, if people aren't told to freak out about it mostly they won't.

I'm concerned about what the push for open carry did to the general feel for guns in the Austin area, but I don't have a problem with open carry itself.

Civil Rights Act of 1964 banned segregation based on, among other things, religion. Segregation is outlawed in all public spaces, and shops with general access to the public have been ruled as public accomodations.

Guns are a legal thing to own and carry, and there is a religion solely devoted to guns as one of the religious accessories.

Therefore it is as illegal to ban someone from entering a store because they're wearing a gun as it is to ban them for entering while wearing a turban.

The reason why this hatred and intolerance continues is because no one has stepped up to sue a shop based on those grounds.

I'm starting to see them at major chain stores now, so it will be standard operating procedure to hang em if you say want to go to a Home Goods or what not state wide.
I'm not even a Texas native, I'm originally from the north east.
What good is CCW if every where you go 30.06 is posted and violating it is criminal trespass?
This shit needs to be taken care of now before it gets out of hand and you realistically cannot carry because your options for eating out/shopping will be limited to whataburger (CCW only) and walmart. Other states don't put criminal charges behind violating a sign, it's only grounds for removal.

If someone walks into a private business practices their percieved first amendment right and Proselytizes or for a protest they get asked to leave/escorted off the property, only arrested/breaking law when they refuse to vacate. For gun owners if you violate 30.06 the second you enter that property you are committing a crime without benefit of the doubt.

Ostrich farming in the United States has never had a lot of staying power. But with the ever-increasing focus on climate change and greenhouse gas emissions for which meat production, especially beef, is partly to blame, perhaps ostrich’s time has truly come.

Meat from this seven-foot African bird, unlike chicken or turkey, resembles beef in taste, coloring, and texture—in fact, it’s often compared to filet mignon. It’s also leaner—97-percent fat free—lower in cholesterol, and higher in iron than beef. The other differences between two proteins are the resources and environmental costs it takes to produce each. According to the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization, about 14.5 percent of all greenhouse gasses comes from the livestock sector (an earlier report from the FAO has it at 18 percent), and cattle’s responsible for about 65 percent of that. Additionally, cattle production takes a lot of water, about 1,799 gallons per pound of meat, whereas ostrich uses about four times less per pound.

“Ostrich emits virtually no methane, which is the most destructive greenhouse gas, and cows’ burping and farting emit that,” says Alex McCoy, an ostrich farmer near Boise, Idaho. “By incorporating ostrich into your diet, you’re doing way more to fight the cause of global warming than driving their your car less, flying less, or taking shorter showers. That’s small potatoes compared to the meat you put on your plate.”

So why don’t we eat more ostrich in the United States? To figure that out, we have to look to the past, and why farmers chose to raise the birds in the first place. Ostrich farming first took off here in the late 1800s to supply the plumage used to decorate the era’s ostentatious headware. For the adventurous agrarians who imported the birds from South Africa and set up shop stateside, business was good. The New York Times reported in 1882 that a pound of top-quality ostrich feathers was going for as much as $400, which is about $9,400 today.

But by the eve of World War I, fashion sensibilities changed, and feathers were out. Since farmers were exclusively raising the animals for their feathers rather than meat, that meant good-bye to the ostrich industry. It would be another 60 years before ostrich farming would see a revival. In the 1980s, there was a boom, but the industry became more pyramid scheme than viable agriculture venture with little investment in market creation. Instead, the primary focus was on hatching and selling the birds. The unsustainable industry model imploded the following decade.

“Everyone was so focused on cranking out chicks to sell to some other sucker that no one ever created a viable end market,” says McCoy. “Why would you slaughter a bird for $1,500 in revenue if you could sell it to your neighbor for $30,000? Why turn that into meat? That would be an $800 steak, so no one ever did. And as a result A

Just a foreward: if you want to make a holster or belts, and not just simple things like masks, expect to drop around $200 on the low end to start. Also I'm around on the IRC all the damn time if you want the live Frank experience.

So for whatever you are making, You'll need something to cut the leather. A box cutter you keep sharp is fine for this, but if you are doing thin or soft leather you might want to invest in a rotary cutter. For cutting strips, straps, and belts, you might want to look into a strap cutter. Or you can splurge and get a head knife for $200. An X-acto is hand to detail cutting. There's a whole mess of other tools just for cutting, but don't worry about them yet.

You also need things to not suck at cutting. Straight edge is a must, metal, and the longer the better. I recommend a square of some sort, get one that suits the size of your projects. You might not need these just for masks and armor. Also consider a self-healing cutting mat.

Next up is stitching. You might not need to stitch for masks, armor, or slings, but for holsters or pouches you will for sure. You need an awl. C.S. Osbourne makes the cheapest one available, and it's serviceable. For marking your stitching, you need to trace a line with wing dividers. Then you have two options. Either mark stitch holes with a pricking wheel, and then set the holes with an awl; or use a set of stitching chisels.

I started out using a wheel and hand stabbing stitch holes. It fucking sucks, get the chisels. Cheapo Chinese chisels on amazon are fine to start, but make sure they are diamond stitching chisels and not lacing chisels. The more sturdy the item you are making, generally the larger the thread and wider the stitch spacing you want. I use 1mm thread and 5spi(5mm spacing) for all my belts, holsters, etc.

If you are doing more rough and tumble type items, I suggest insetting you stitch, this requires a stitching groover. If you use a groover, you don't have to premark your line with the wing dividers.

Stitching. Save yourself some headache, and order John James harness needles. They aren't expensive, and they are the best you can get, bar none. Don't bother fucking with linen thread; some old fucks like it, it's terrible. Get some nice polycord, I'll tell you where at the bottom. Maine thread company makes thick, sturdy, and *cheap* thread. The "best" thread you can get your hand son is Ritza 25 Tiger thread; it's a waxed braided polycord and it's fucking amazing, but it's hard to source and it ain't cheap.

Hardware. Every bit of hardware you attach(aside from buckles and shit) needs setting tools. Different types of rivets need different setting tools, and snap fasteners and stuff need different setters as well. The cheap setters fucking suck, but they're usable and the best you can get unles

Oh, there's other questions and I forgot.

Leather cord is... okay? I'd consider it specialty use. It's fine for drawstrings. It's fine for lacing, but that depends on the combined strength of a large number of laces. On it's own, leather cordage is pretty weak. Note that artificial sinew is usually just unwound nylon thread.

The strength of other thread is such: cotton thread<linen<generic polycord<maine thread<tiger thread.

To keep things from fraying, hit the end with a lighter or heated tool to melt it.

Double stitch isn't bad, but it's usually basically decorative. Used for machine run stitches to add strength. With a hand-run saddle stitch it's over kill, and when you stitch something by hand, no one will be able to pay you enough to stitch it twice.

Astorstat seems to be mostly an automotive product? Weird. In any case, for wet weather items, treating the leather with beeswax is great. SOP is to melt beeswax into either linseed or neatsfoot oil, and apply it to the leather. Use a heat gun once it sets up and buff it into the grain, then wipe off the excess.

Avoid petroleum product on leather if you can help it, they are typically not helpful for long term durability and might break down the grain.

Springfield has good low cost options and will cut to size. Best option for starting out.

If you wanna fancy it up and don't mind buying a whole side/hide, Wickett & Craig has good prices and does high quality vegtan, harness, bridle, and latigo. They also split/skive for free.

If you really wanna go fancy, but have a budget, Maverick Leather Company does Horween factory seconds. Good price, limited/oddball/one-off selection.

Fancier shit... well don't worry about where to get it for now. It's hard to source, and you don't want to spend that kind of money for a few years. No sense spending $200/sq.ft. on a Cordovan Shell 'til you know you can use it well.

You've got a few options for treating the unfinished flesh side. If you are most concerned with coloration, you can just buy the appropriate dye. I prefer Fiebings professional oi dyes, flesh side of hides soaks up dye like crazy so you might have iffy results with their normal line or the popular eco-flo dyes. If you are concerned with its hardiness, tankote is a relatively light sealant that will protect it without hardening it excessively. A more aggressive approach would be an application of gum tragacanth and a brisk burnishing. This is usually done to overly hair flesh sides, and will leave it harder, smoother, and darker. If you want to straight up seal it, use Fiebings Acrylic Resolene.

First off, I know I know the source is pretty crappy but holy hell this is a great article that is truly worth a read especially for those who have serious issues with SJW's.

>In my first year of college, I stopped calling myself an activist.

>It took attending just a few meetings of the campus queer group for me to realize that I didn’t fit in with everyone else. Despite that the fact that I was definitely queer – a pre-transition trans woman at the time – I could tell immediately that I wasn’t “queer enough” to fight for social justice alongside these university-educated revolutionaries who spoke with such confidence and rolled their eyes every time I opened my mouth.

>I didn’t know what “trigger warnings” or “intersectional systemic oppression” were. I didn’t dress in ripped denim and black leather, or have a colorfully dyed, asymmetrical haircut. I wasn’t white, like most of the people in the room. I didn’t even know who this “Judith Butler” person that everyone seemed to love so much was.

>Simply being racialized, a trans person, and survivor of abuse had apparently not prepared me to talk or think about racism, transphobia, or trauma in any valuable way. Neither had facilitating workshops on homophobia in my hometown.

>And after a few weeks of feeling confused and invisible, I decided that I just wasn’t smart enough to be an activist.

>Six years, two degrees, one gender transition, and a bunch of published Internet rants later, I’m able to see that my feelings about those early forays into social justice weren’t so much about my personal capacity or value as they were about exclusion and accessibility.

Half the state lives in the tri-state/NYC metropolitan area (including White Plains and Yonkers), the urban/suburban populations of Poughkeepsie, the Capitol/tri-city region, Syracuse, Rochester and Buffalo pull to the left. Most of the state pulls to the left. The counties that Buffalo, Rochester, etc reside or those that surround them in may go red alot of the time, but the gerrymandering is controlled by corrupt NYC dems.

There are only a few true conservative bastions in NY, in the South it's Staten Island and bits of the Hamptons, Orange Ulster and Putnam and anything between them and Albany besides Dutchess, otherwise in the rest of the state it's the rural areas not near the NYS state thruway or in a college town or near Cooperstown, the only other area that that stand out red besides rural/countryside areas NY is Amherst/parts of the Buffalo suburbs. I also can't stress enough how bad fucking Syracuse is.

The only thing I can add to that (having lived in Texas for 95% of my life) is that most of the people that work/live/visit the major cities PROBABLY grew up on the outskirts of those cities, or in the rural area and moved/commute into those cities for work.

I spent my HS years in a town of 2000 or so people (and about 100+ churches I swear to christ) about an hour-hour and a half outside of the greater Houston area.

Everyone I still speak to has migrated to one of the major cities, I have heard some of the shitbirds I grew up around are stuck in that shit hole of town being typical methhead redneck dumb fucks.

So because of that rant, you see a lot of people raised with the "I dont give a fuck, just handle your bidness, pay your bills, care for your family" mentality living in the bigger cities in Texas.

Everything that can be done to reduce and marginalize the political power of cities should be done. Rural counties should hold equal sway, part of why Texas does so well is because Austin, San Antonio and Houston aren't running the show.

Compare and contrast to NY where one megacity de facto rules the entire state (Houston is a megacity too, as is the DFW metropolitian area)

I used to work at Botach.

As much as people hate it, it was worse to be there.

7 Days and these fuckers still haven't refunded my money.

Of ocurse, they sent an email claiming they have, and blocked my form posting reviews or comments on their facebook.

Time the call the BBB! And my bank. And fish around for a lawyer, just for shits and giggles.


If any operators post on other gun sites, let me know, i'd love to spread the word about these monkeys far and wide.

I'm towards BWI.

Elite shooting sports in Man-ass-es is pretty nice for an indoor range. Outdoor or innawoods would, of course, be preferable.

The whole Puritan thing was kinda why I suggested Gin "hiding" in Earl Grey tea, Bats.

Plus I thought it would be funny if one of the ingredients of the drink was/is named after Charles Grey, prime minister of England from 1830 through 1834. Although he abolished slavery during his time in office, he is most remembered for his namesake tea.

Ive got nothing against Satanists that are pressing for statues of baphomet/wanting satanist prayers in school, etc.

They are doing good work, and they should keep it up.

Jim Lane's going with it, sounds like.
They get 3 minutes and that'll be the end of it. Really don't need to give them any more time than they really want.
