    these are the nicest to come across
    I like good old 7-segment LED displays. I've been wanting to get some and make a cool racing sim steering wheel display similar to this.

    VFDs are neat. They're like old LCDs but with the warmth of nixie tubes or neon.

    I feel like a better solution is to not get mad at video games. I'm 24 years old and getting married in 2 days, I have no excuse for having such awful behavior.
    unironically thought you were 16. then i read your username and said "wait hasnt this guy been around forever" and then i read you're getting married

    take a chill pill my dude. direct your rage towards your [FORCEFULLY QUIT APPLICATION] shortcut instead

    I still don't understand how I've somehow been immune to this.
    Literally never had Windows 10 reboot on me unexpectedly even since the early insider previews.
    In fact the only time I come home to a rebooted/updated PC is when I'm running Insider fast ring builds vv

    Reminds me of SGDQ 2016. During the Bioshock run,    the runner replaced the Andrew Ryan cutscenes with a recording of windows 10 rebooting for updates. He and the couch played along like windows 10 was rebooting his computer, until the cutscenes ended and it cut back into the game

    I'm the least immune to it, I don't shut my PC down, just put it in sleep mode so I'll get woken up in the middle of the night by the sound of a jet engine coming from under my desk and tons of lights.

    Something in Windows keeps my machine waking up every few minutes if I put it to sleep (It says it's my ethernet adapter...) so I just either turn it off or deal with the occasional sound of my hard-drive spinning up at 2 AM.

    I have a lot of footage of a harddrive speaker somewhere on my old HDD but I think I never put it together as it wasn't anything too amazing.

    Also went through sine waves and things, that was fun.

    Edited:

    I think we used an SSTV thing too to transmit a picture with the HDD speaker and then captured it with a laptop.

    Guess that'd be a real nice way to make interesting glitch art.

    I know you guys have seen Techmoan's New York 1993 Digital VHS, but here's footage from the same master of American footage from one of the earlier HD-VCRs, a W-VHS which recorded analog component 1035i:
    This is almost exactly what the video off my Canon 60D would look like, but this one doesn't have a shit ton of moire.

    Gas Plasma and Vector CRTs are my favorite.

    There's just something about vector graphics that raster images can never emulate for me. Anyone who's played an original Asteroids machine can probably relate. The brightness and smoothness is just beautiful.

    It's doable but there is absolutely no reason for it. Nobody optimizes games for multi-socket, so it would barely be faster than a single i7, while being much more expensive and really limiting your board options.

    Source: I gamed on a dual-Xeon computer for five years. I got the machine for free, which is about the only situation where gaming on a dual-Xeon computer is reasonable.

    Just get a Threadripper and call it a day

    Edited:

    Honestly going the "uncommon route" with computer stuff in general is usually a bad idea. It'll seem cool on paper but after you're done paying for everything you'll find that it actually kinda sucks ass because no one bothers supporting the uncommon route.

    If you compare it to the XF300 footage, you can see the 60D is more like a 720p camera with aliasing and moire.

    I love my GH5, only real downside is the AF. Even after v2.0 firmware it's worse than none. So use it if you're used to cinecameras or you shoot filmically.

    I manually focus all the time on my 60D but in the past chances I got to use the GH5, I got lazy and used the photo AF before recording and it tends to work really well. Continuous is kinda meh and not having AF in the slow-motion mode was kinda annoying. You can't even pre-focus before recording. The best and fastest AF I've seen in a while was on the Sony a6500, but it had bad battery life, a dim LCD display and Sony lenses aren't that great.
