So I've been reading Beyond the Hundredth Meridian: John Wesley Powell and the Second Opening of the West, and watching some of the Dick Proenneke movies.

You guys ever just want to get out and want to go adventuring, go on an expedition, or similar?

When I was younger, yeah. Nowadays I'm too old, too unwilling to do anything exciting.

Plus I had the realization that any adventure probably isn't going to be all that adventurous, any expedition will be only to places someone has already been, and anything close these days like taking up arms to fight ISIS or exploring lightly explored areas will never even come close to the grand adventures of the past.

Whats the point of going on an adventure if you can't find some untouched place with a bunch of native girls who have never saw a white dick before? Just not worth it.

Here, let me help you, since you're fond of screencaps and insinuations.

Face it. You got butthurt and went screencap hunting so suddenly because you didn't think I was still around to snap back at your Goony ass on account of not posting in a long time.

You're a net negative on this entire site and whatever sense of community and fraternity it used to have. You provoke shit, stir shit both provoked by you and by others, travel with a little entourage of anon operators who never seem to post anything but proverbial one liners unless they're backing you up in a thread at 3:00 in the morning, and you only ever speak with that signature arrogant tone of pseudo-detached pretentiousness almost unique to Goons, SRS trolls and their ilk. But you're just here to "enrich our discourse" or "stop it from being a hugbox" or whatever bullshit excuse your thirsty beta adherents will spit out in defence of your shit stirring this time.

So fuck you. I don't post much, but I've never left this place, and I won't be leaving, either. Get used to the idea, and shove a nice screencap of this post right up your ass with your other ones.

A few things:

1. You probably noticed opchan was down for about a day. If you haven't read the other threads, it was a server hardware problem relating to our hard drives, of which we have 2, configured in RAID 1. It took longer than it should have, but at least the host communicated with us to let us know what was going on while they fixed it. Thank you Bob for volunteering to help out with issues like this in the future, that is extremely helpful, we'll talk more.

2. Donation drive is moving to fall. I simply don't have the time to do it right now. I would still very much appreciate volunteers to help me run it.

3. Brainstorm for me how the user experience (UX) of operatorchan is distinct from other sites or forums you go on, and then ponder how that could be replicated using more traditional forum software. Some points I know we've discussed in the past:

a. optional anonymity - most forums require you to sign up
b. images central to discussion - most forums are text based with links and shit for images.

Say words to inform my brain.

I've always seen opchan as halfway between typical chan and their culture and traditional forums. I like the imageboard format and believe images and videos add character.

I agree with that, I wonder if it can be replicated in a meaningful way in something better supported than the current crop of imageboard abor... I mean softwares.

William Tecumseh Sherman professed that he hated profiteers, politicians, and sentimentalists. Above all, he hated reporters. He felt they revealed war secrets just to sell newspapers.

“These dirty newspaper scribblers have the impudence of Satan. They come into camp and poke about the lazy shirkers and pick up camp rumors and then publish them as facts.”

He went on, “If I killed all of them tonight there’d be news from Hell before breakfast.”

Bob Dole, I can personally attest to the usefulness of the IRAC method of note-taking. When reading a court opinion on a case, jot down the main points of the case's story and circumstances and then write lines on the case's issue, rule, analysis and conclusion. Page-brief these cases, do not just book-brief them (making IRAC notations in the book). I also pasted the case's condensed opinion from Lexis-Nexis in my IRAC document. Really helped me out with my studies.

Since the WARFARE board is no longer in existence I have to ask my question here:

HOW are fighting doctrines and TTPs developed for USMC and US Army? People in Pentagon work their brains out and send the conceived products down the line? Or the ideas come from the bottom through some prepared channels solely for improvements and suggestions inflow up the chain of command?

And more practical question - WHICH of those (USMC or USAr) manuals and such documents would you recommend to introduce to improve combat training of light infantry and also motorized and mech infantry in middle european country?

To put it in a stupid simple way - which tactical solutions are "BETTER" for combat?

Hey guys Bob Dole here talking about porn and masturbation.

Have you ever had a long day and you were surfing the chans and you run into a photo of a sexy lady? What about multiple photos of sexy ladies and your peepee goes hard? But you told yourself you are going to stop masturbating for sometime.

Do you have issues finding having very high standards in women you are willing to bone? Have you ever lost interest in a girl after busting because she did not hold up to those high standards?

Well with avoiding porn you can hold those standards in check. Because some physical contact from females is better then none!

Silly infomercial stuff aside. Trying to go no fap no porn and shits hard yo. I am tired of being controlled by my urges and want more incentive to actually chase tail. I have noticed that when I fap I am way worse with women and have less incentive to be on the prowl.
I have also noticed watching porn or viewing pornographic images causes me to hold certain standards higher then others. I have baseline interests I look for in girls but I am tired of needing x,y, and or z from a girl. The same x,y, and or z I specifically look for in a girl in a porn to bust to.
I am not getting as much action as I want to and I feel a good step to changing that is to cut all masturbation and porn. Has anyone else tried this? I have read multiple articles on this and it seems like it could be a benefit on my life. I went 30 days a year back and noticed a positive change in my ability to get girls during that time.

Have any other OPERATORs tried the 30 or even 90 day no fap no porn challenge? I seem to about 70% of the time I start one of these have a wet dream by day 3 which is super annoying since it is always a super fat load.

  GOP Platform Identifies Pornography As A National Public Health Crisis And A Public Menace That Is Destroying Lives
As GOP delegates gather in Cleveland to formulate the party’s principles document, social conservative priorities have dominated the discussion, with several provisions opposition same-sex marriage and endorsing controversial conversion therapy passing preliminary votes Monday. The platform committee approved several of the measures in a sometimes-heated discussion between social conservatives and more moderate Republicans that represent a more conservative shift from the draft platform authored by Republican National Committee staff and outside advisors. But the platform committee softened language calling for legislation in opposition to transgender protections pushed by the Obama administration.

Among the provisions is an assessment that internet pornography is a “public health crisis.”

“Pornography, with his harmful effects, especially on children, has become a public health crisis that is destroying the life of millions. We encourage states to continue to fight this public menace and pledge our commitment to children’s safety and wellbeing,” the amendment stated. http://time.com/4401600/gop-platform-contemplates-anti-porn-provision-embrace-of-conversion-therapy/

Well, if you forgot, USSR still has enough power to destroy Japanese occupational forces in the other part of the continent after that (talk about shit nobody cares about).

No, a very important ally, at least in their effectiveness in fighting Nazi Germany and the Axis powers. Something like 80% of Germany's casualties in WW2 were inflicted by the Soviets.
And if the Soviets were our tools or vassals we would not have had such trouble with them in the post-war period.

Sorry if this is the wrong spot, but STEM didn't seem like the ideal location.

I've been looking for a new computer. I don't do anything beyond normal computing, aside from do some video editing for fun. I wanted a laptop because I worked 24 hour shifts, go to school etc, so it seemed like the easiest way to keep all of my stuff together. After looking at how much space I would need, and on the advice that I should try to get an SSD, I would need a 512gb SSD. Which often pushed me into the premium lines of most makers, and prices north of $1k (which I'm willing to pay if necessary).

But recently I started looking at All-In-One (AIO) computers. Yes, they are not portable (although there are some models that do side duty as huge tablets). However it seems like I can get similar performance for a lot less money (although most have traditional HDDs). If I went this route, I would have to get with the times and figure out how to do cloud computing so I can access necessary things on the go. And then I would of course still need a laptop...

So in conclusion I guess, has anyone gone either way on this? High end laptop vs standardish desktop and laptop?

> PassMark score

Rant(-ish) time.

I'm always a bit hesitant when using passmark (for GPUs at least - I haven't looked much in to their CPU charts), their scoring is a bit weird imo, and they do some weird groupings of cards, especially with AMD cards (nvidia bias maybe?). A prime example of this is that they've lumped the R9 Fury and Fury X together as if they were the same card with the same performance, which they definitely are not (not to mention they've completely missed the R9 Nano, which is effectively and air cooled Fury X and should be lumped with it instead). It would be like lumping the GTX 980 and GTX 980Ti together. I do understand the grouping of cards that are effectively just refreshes though, that makes a bit more sense(although they aren't even consistent with that).


That aside, what I'm getting at is that I highly recommend using more than one source for GPU and CPU performance numbers. There are loads of youtube channels that do reviews these days.
>> No. 106305 ID: 6057a8
Indeed. I just used that to get an idea of what cards to aim at.

I researched more thoroughly the card I wanted to get, comparing power requirement and other benchmarks with the competing cards and also my budget. I'm happy with the GTX960, I've been using it since I got it and it has been fantastic. Very quiet, my computer runs cooler, it has CUDA and has proven more than capable for what I need and even what I might need in the future. Even with two monitors, it has more than enough horsepower for me from what I can tell.
