    Nvidia launches RTX 2000 series

    Truth. I look forward to this path more so than VR, which to me seems like a gimmick (unless its being used for simulators, which in that case I'm really hyped and hope for a virtual cockpit for flight simulators). My comment was more so to point out the irony.

    What is the closest you've been to death?

    Maybe not here, but if you ever posted on 4chan, I think I've read the story or a similar one before. I've almost died too many times to list. Most recent was due to some high school kid on his bicycle cutting in front of a hyundai (which was in front of me). I was on my motorcycle. It was a blind curve. The hyundai disappeared around the turn, and as I just started to roll into it, the hyundai reappeared in a dead stop. 2 lane traffic. Opposite lane was an oncoming bus. I opted to smash into the stopped hyundai. A near-shattered knee and totaled bike later (near totaled hyundai as well), I found myself standing up in the middle of the road, while everyone did the "are you okay?" and "stay down!" gambit, searching instinctively for the cause. I saw the kid. Rage consumed me. I sprinted on my injured knee, while he pedaled away on his bike. Chucked my helmet at him, hit him, but he kept going. Then the adrenalin wore off.

    Nvidia launches RTX 2000 series

    I honestly just find this whole obsession with ray tracing hilarious. ATI did this 10 years ago with the HD 4800 series. They had that Crossfire 4800 series live rendered ray tracing tech demo. No one cared. But when Nvidia does it...
  4. Not sure exactly how long ago it was, but during the development of UDM3, I had 3 maps to contribute that were roughly 90% done. They were also saved to one of those infamous 500GB Seagate Sata 7200.11 drives... I lost more than just those maps - I lost photos of family, high school, music I had made, you name it. I learned the value of regular back ups that day - as well as how powerful RIPlinux and ddrescue are. I salvaged some data, but not all. Still have the drive in hopes that one day I can recover it.

    RIP 802.11, 1997-2017

    Wait, I'm confused... How does this effect RADIUS setups? Is the vulnerability specific to WPA2 AES personal? Or enterprise with handshakes and PKI? I read that this was only relevant to your basic ISP modem with built in wifi... Did more come of this?

    What PWADs invoke the most nostalgia for you?

    It was from 1997? I had no idea. I have two directories for files - one for Getwad, and another one I built over the years which has it dated as 2001. I always assumed it was much older, but sure enough the one from Getwad is dated 1997. Thank you. Ah, my foot tastes wonderful - but needs more salt. That's what I get for only checking the first two pages. That's a thing? Born in 1987, but truth be told I only had access to doom back in 94/95 at a friend's house - my folks would never have let it fly...they had no idea. They were the anti-MortalKombat types. Winquake over Mplayer was my first fps internet deathmatch experience. Novalogic's F 22 Raptor was my first internet multiplayer experience period. 128 players on Novaworld, baby! And that was 1997. Way ahead of its time.

    What PWADs invoke the most nostalgia for you?

    Ctrl+f No EARTH.wad? Really? So innovative for its time back in '94, and its still a blast to this day. I constantly host it. Multiplayer? UDM.wad. All day. Then there's the stuff from the old MJ Doom page I stumbled upon way back like the original Simpsons Mod, School Doom 2, and Batman Doom 2. Afterwards, any of the below do it for me: Dwango5 Dwango6 AZDwango DCDwango LBDwango DOOMMALL.wad (might be mall.wad, not sure) PLAYPEN6.wad SON, DO YOU EVEN POINT OF DEPARTURE? TNTBlood and I can't remember, but the old west one with the chaingun replaced by dual revolvers.
  11. Doom and the doomworld community have aged like fine wine to me. Many of us have been here to witness both tragedy and success, such as members passing away/taken before their time and others moving on to create their own games respectively. By far the most fascinating to me is how much the mapping architecture has changed over the years. Seeing limit-removing source ports open up the future to larger and more complex maps may not seem like that big of a deal to many newer members, but for myself at least the vast contrast between your circa 1995 DEU generated map and a modern Lutz map is quite extraordinary... ...and the realization that I've been around to witness it and map some maps of my own makes that experience all the more precious. Also, I think I still hold the current longest active member/lowest post count card. At this rate I'll never see a custom title.

    id Software Sets 3 Guinness World Records

    This. Build something well the first time, and it will outlast its creators. Regardless, well deserved record.

    AMD or NVIDIA.

    If you want better performance for DOOM 4 and don't want to break the bank, stick with AMD. Vulkan is heavily based off of AMD's Mantle tech (as is DirectX 12). All AMD cards with the GCN 1.0+ architecture were built for Vulkan/DX12. My 4 year old HD 7950 runs the game solid 90+ fps with Vulkan, and my R9 Nano hits the 200 fps cap occasionally. The RX 480 just came out early July. It is the AMD equivalent of the GTX 980/1070, and even exceeds it at times. Its also only $200 for the 4gb version - half the price of a 1070. In DOOM 4, the RX 480 beats out the 980 in Vulkan and is on par with the 1070. Nvidia GPUs do not have hardware Async. AMD GCN 1.0+ cards do; therefore, they benefit exponentially more from DX 12 and Vulkan than Nvidia cards do. Also, you're gonna see a lot of GTX 970 cards drop in price - AVOID THEM unless you are okay with false advertising (they are truly 3.5gb cards, not 4gb) and want to gamble with low GPU usage issues. I think there's still a thread on the Nvidia forums regarding the GTX 970 and the gpu usage problem that has hit 300+ pages. That's just downright irresponsible. If you don't mind not being futureproof, pick up an NVidia gpu if you find it cheaper than a modern AMD gpu. Otherwise, let Nvidia learn from their mistakes for a bit with drops in sales, and force them to improve. The Linux VGA-passthrough world has already dumped Nvidia in favor of AMD as well. You can google all the above if you want to verify.
