Tabletop QOTD 2020-07-07


 
RPG books are on a shelf in the office. Nearly all of our boardgames and card games are stacked (in a rather inelegant arrangement) onto one big bookcase in the den. (Exceptions are the games that have been moved to Broken Token boxes, which are on the partner bookcase to this one.)

We used to keep our games stored in a more space-efficient manner on shelves in the basement, but we found that "out of sight, out of mind" really held true for us, and we kept forgetting what we had. So we moved everything upstairs where we can see it.
 
Lots and lots of bookshelves. Like 15 of them in my game room.

I've got an article about how to sort your collection that people may enjoy. In it, I talk about how my shelves are organized

Dear #

I am pretty noob and I am still in the process learning... I have question about rendering settings... I have an old but still pretty decent GPU: a Nvidia 970M.

I did several Cycles tests (2560*2560, 128 sample) and I found out that using CUDA GPU+CPU @ 64*64 is 40% faster than rendering with just the GPU @ 256*256... And I am just figuring out why... When I bought my laptop that was the best card available, I bought it with the intention to learn better Blender, but it is just when 2.80 came out that I really started to study Blender seriously.

Now, since I am a # user I am wondering, thinking about rendering speed, if for the future would be better buying a powerful CPU like a Threadripper and a decent AMD GPU rather than buy another Nvidia card.

I mean AMD is always better for Linux but just focus primarily on rendering speed.

Thanks

i'm a lot more comfortable with the devuan community and developers (like jaromil) and where their ethics are, than debian's, official social contract or not.
i only (sid/)ceres, so i dont notice a slow moving aspect.

though, i skip a lot of the "which distro" dilema, with bedrocklinux. shsh. ;D [void|artix|gentoo|devuan]

Aww. Ennio Morricone is dead. He composed my favorite tune to play on the recorder.
 
I've never associated GBU with a recorder. My wife and I used Gabriel's Oboe as the processional for our wedding. (I'm a movie soundtrack nut.)
 
That's very cool. As you probably know, I was a serious pipe organist in my younger days, gave recitals in Europe, etc., and played for events in the Los Angeles area in the 1970s, like weddings. Haha. Lots of weddings. It was rare that the couple requested special music outside the traditional tunes, and usually it was something like "We've Only Just Begun". They usually went with my recommendations.

For the recessional, I always recommended Purcell's Trumpet Air, and I had my own arrangement with lots of spectacular embellishments. I love this tune. It kicks ass. Diane does a good job on it here. Since this particular organ has a rank of Trompettes En Chamade, I would have put them to full use on this piece. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jE162op5DzA

There a couple of idiots on #, but I suspect that both are the same person, that are constantly spreading # and # about #.

Their arguments are so silly and ephemeral that everytime I engage them the result is always the same: offences against myself and my comments deleted.

The inability to have a civic and constructive dialogue with these two individuals just leads me to one and simple conclusion: those persons are **saboteurs**!

I ignore the reason but they have a precise bias against Debian that cannot be based on the nonsense they repeat. There is a precise and captious scheme behind, **hence I invite all of you to not trust these two guys.**

I guess every human organisation has lights and shadows.
It's a pity. As a Debian user I'd like to read a discussion of all you (fans and detractors of the Debian project) on Diaspora. Perhaps an impartial third party could host the thread of discussion, with no deleted comments, just people trying to get their points across. Too bad this summer everybody seems to be more passionate than usual, so I'll have to read separate threads and arrive at my own conclusions.
 
@icavot

Honestly there is no point at all. It is constantly accused Debian as entity while:

1. The DPL is in charge two years with only two mandates on a row.

2. The DPL serves more as coordinator under its own program and has very limited power.

3. Each Debian team is autonomous and it responds only to itself and when is time to freeze and release Debian.

4. Debian is made by volunteers which follows the do-ocracy philosophy and barely known each others beside the mailing lists who belong to.

5. Debian uses the funds that receives to pay its infrastructure and to organize its meeting. Probably this is the only area where the DPL is in charge.

For the rest accusing Debian is stupid, you can accuse each individual that you think is not conforming or acting under the Debian Social Contract; all the rest is pure millantry.
