Ever seen the video where he's asked to quote his favourite verse from it (his "favourite book")?
("..about equal."  :cheesy:)

It's a wonder he didn't try to blag it by quoting from the Book of Fingerbobs.

He said that, but then goes around standing with the book in his hand. If it were that "personal", he wouldn't need to do that. But what I was referring to, was about the hypocrites who Jesus mentions, that were singing and praying aloud to make themselves look good

he knows how to use props and quite clearly has no idea what those props actually are, but they look good, apparently.

Today’s news about Dexamethasone suggest that those without ventilators only 35% it will help, and 20% with a ventilator

By no means a silver bullet, but some help at least

Nvidia might buy ARM, but it could face regulators, so it may not come to fruition

AMD, one of Nividia's competitors license technology from ARM.

ARM, the once British company, currently owned by Japanese Softbank is up for sale

That was some fucking massive explosion in Beirut today.

The red/brown smoke reminds me of the shit that comes out of battleship guns

Certainly was not seen a shockwave as close up as that before!

It was ammonia that was stored there for 6 years, unsafely....I would have thought that being a potential target from other forces, they would have removed it. Grant that they didn't have the resources, but they should have at least scattered it

There was a fire that started it in the first place, new footage showed that there was a fireworks fire. But that explosion looked really big, maybe that was the shockwave cloud you see on some military planes

Apparently the blast force was half that of Little Boy.

That's fucking big!

Nvidia buys ARM, they said they promise to keep the company based in the UK. I’m just thinking of what the Cadbury owners said when they bought the company, exactly the same thing, but now most of the operation is in the EU

It's the CPU market they're after and yes, I hope jobs do stay in the UK.
This from the leather jacketed one:

Let's face it, the CPU market needs more competition for the fanboys to moan about  :cheesy:

True, because there are only two manufacturers that produce them with any clout. Intel went bad trying and failing with their 7nm processing

That's pretty extreme. I've used spectrum analysers to detect WiFi interference, but that's a hell of an event.
