My room is so super quiet now..
« on: Tue, 22 October 2013, 15:42:17 »
....that I've stopped competitively seeding data-on-the-internet*...


Yeah, it's a kind of silly hobby...


Did you know, that you can hear crickets "even in the morning"... but only when your hard-drives spin down...

Do you use water or passive cooling?

The hard drives on my beasts at home are the least of the problem comparing to the fans. Even with bigger slower fans with better blade design... Still louder than the HDs.

I used water during my intel q9400 days.. 

After i7, I stuck with air because the water pump churning-noise didn't justify the 100-200mhz extra ontop of air-cooled overclocking... 

now my computer only has a single 120mm fan for the cpu onto of the other stuff that carry their own fan..

no other spinning going on in my room.

I know he's talking about torrents, but there's a masturbation joke in there somewhere...

Agreed, apparently the 'elitists' are bad at math and don't realize torrents are a 'zero sum' game

I'm not Russian, lol. Also, the only private torrent sites I've visited were populated by English-speaking Americans and Western Europeans.

it's better to say that "all the best seeders are slavic", so here you are haha
(...)Whereas back then I wrote about the tyranny of the majority, today I'd combine that with the tyranny of the minorities. These days, you have to be careful of both. They both want to control you. The first group, by making you do the same thing over and over again. The second group is indicated by the letters I get from the Vassar girls who want me to put more women's lib in The Martian Chronicles, or from blacks who want more black people in Dandelion Wine.
I say to both bunches, Whether you're a majority or minority, bug off! To hell with anybody who wants to tell me what to write. Their society breaks down into subsections of minorities who then, in effect, burn books by banning them. All this political correctness that's rampant on campuses is b.s.
