64-CORES/128-THREADS THREADRIPPER 3995WX WORKSTATION GRADE CPU CONFIRMED TO WORK IN WINDOWS 7

64-CORES/128-THREADS THREADRIPPER 3995WX WORKSTATION GRADE CPU CONFIRMED TO WORK IN WINDOWS 7

Well known Chinese driver modder [Canonkong] confirmed that [64-cores/128-threads Threadripper 3995WX] based upon sWRX8 chipset works flawlessly in Windows 7 environment. Considering the news it looks like that more recent [5995WX] will also work without any issues. So, we have plenty of headroom in terms of system performance. As for me, i have no need to switch to “recent operating systems” like Windows 10/11. Here is brief [confirmation] from the WinRaid forum:
PERSONAL CONCLUSIONS OF A LIFETIME

PERSONAL CONCLUSIONS OF A LIFETIME

1. Never ever ask a question when you know that answer is going to be a complete lie [some people are always lying or how they think "holding smth not important back"] 2. For most cases it is pretty safe to talk frankly with people, because they are not really listening or simply don't care much about 3. Be yourself [kinda trite expression, but generally works for me] Imagery by spacedrone808
BIG BANG THEORY [2007-2019] ▀ PROBABLY THE BEST US SITCOM EVER

BIG BANG THEORY [2007-2019] ▀ PROBABLY THE BEST US SITCOM EVER

[Big Bang Theory] shows how to do comedy in a proper way. Excellent sitcom. Story line holds up pretty well. Overall scenario and actor cues are just brilliant. Sense of humor is universal with glimpses of geek related stuff. Main disadvantage is permanent backdrop laugh. I wonder is there any chance to get version without “wonderful” pointer when to laugh and when not? One more downside that I’ve noticed: complete absence of music.
HOW TO DEPLATFORM YOURSELF, ESCAPE PROFILE BUBBLE AND STOP PERSONAL DATA LEAKAGE

HOW TO DEPLATFORM YOURSELF, ESCAPE PROFILE BUBBLE AND STOP PERSONAL DATA LEAKAGE

Stop using mainstream operating systems like Windows 11/10/8.1, modern Linux, like Ubuntu or modern MacOS versions. On mobile Android 14/13/12/11/10/9/8.1 are prohibited because they use neural networks to profile your device and dial back to “home” to dump your personal data and preferences. iOS from very beginning was very phony platform. My personal choices are Windows 7 for desktop and Android 8.0 for mobile. These two cover my digital needs fully, no restrictions whatsoever.

44 THREADS XEON WORKSTATION AND 32 THREADS OPTERON SERVER RETRO BUILDS


As you already know i fed up using [modern Ryzen/Radeon hardware] and decided to go a bit retro. Cheap Chinese clone mobos and second-hand high-performance cpu’s of previous generations induced me to rebuild my workstation and also fool around with Opteron-based server.
Here is [very detailed spreadsheet comparision] of almost all available Chinese x79/x89/x99 boards on the market.

WALKING DEAD [2009-2022] ▀ HOW TO RUIN GREAT IDEA

WALKING DEAD [2009-2022] ▀ HOW TO RUIN GREAT IDEA

Just watched 9.5 out of 11 episodes of this [zombie soap opera] . Oh, my! What a waste! Lil’ breakdown of main key features: interesting story-line at the beginning, but rapidly degrading into repeating marasmic rave [end of episode 8 is a peak of delirium] frequent meaningless dialogs diluted by zombie cameos low quality acting is a frequent thing also [hi goes out to captain Karl, boy with dumb sheriff hat permanently glued directly to his head, later on was replaced by little girl with the same hat] after disappearance of Rick [main character], series completely lost meaning of existence Highly encourage you not to repeat my mistake and do something useful instead of wasting time on this “masterpiece”!
WHY NO COMMENTS SECTION? ▀ THOUGHTS ON TOPIC

WHY NO COMMENTS SECTION? ▀ THOUGHTS ON TOPIC

This is a second revision of question “Why your blog doesn’t have commentary section?” and “How do you come up with such stupid decision?” First one is [here] . Once again, i don’t see any convincing point, which forces me to incorporate comments section. Reasons not to do this: overwhelming amount of AD spam-robots to fight with overwhelming amount of political/propaganda human flame wars to resolve overwhelming amount of nonsense/emoji commentaries to delete I better spend my spare time on something more useful.
ICEWEASEL ▀ NEW ALTERNATIVE TO DISMISSED ICECAT

ICEWEASEL ▀ NEW ALTERNATIVE TO DISMISSED ICECAT

Not long ago [already reviewed] in the past Firefox forks Icecat and [Iceweasel] for some reason went into 404 void due to applied sanctions to Russia. So, i was forced to find an alternative way and stumbled upon Chinese builds of [Iceweasel] . Just want to digest this historical fact as a blog post. Imagery by spacedrone808

PALIT GEFORCE 1650 TI ▀ FASTEST PASSIVELY COOLED GPU

[GeForce 1650Ti] is the fastest passively cooled GPU avaialable on market. It was made by Palit company and carries KalmX branding. Recently, i finished my Blender investigations and that is why i don’t need [Radeon 6900xt] power anymore. So, i decided to switch to something without fan with decent performance. KalmX design solely relies on massive radiator. Despite the fact that device doesn’t have any fans it provides pretty good performance.

Music pack aims to create a Metal experience. Every original midi song of the game has been replaced by remakes using real instruments.

ICEWEASEL ▀ MODERN REPLACEMENT FOR AGING ICECAT 91 ESR BRANCH

I’m still using trusted [Icecat port by Muslayev] . Problem is that it begin to show it’s age by not rendering some websites in a correct way. After checking [Firefox release roadmap] i find out that 91 ESR branch on which Icecat is based will reach EOL status at the end of the summer. So i’ll need a replacement to keep up with modern web standards. Chrome and original Firefox are not an options because of their telemetry framework and bloated nature.
STOP USING UGLY GOOGLE AND HAVE SOME DIGNITY

STOP USING UGLY GOOGLE AND HAVE SOME DIGNITY

I recommend you to use alternative search engines like [Searx.me] or [Duckduckgo] not because g is mining your data and then resells it to marketing agencies for targeted ads, but because if you say something restricted or will be “lucky” to be banned by their anti-spam bot you can lose access to your data forever. Three years ago i had YT channel with [tracker music] where i posted stuff almost daily, also i had [trackers database] hosted on their blogger platform.

OPENTTD ▀ ANOTHER REVISIT TO LIVING MICROPROSE CLASSICS

As you may already noticed i like to give a reference to Microprose games. Previous posts covered masterpieces like [UFO: X-Com] and [Civilization II] . And i’m doing that on purpose. Games of the past primarily relied on solid and very high-quality storylines. Back in the day processing power of computer was quite limited and developers can’t offer breath-taking graphics. So they have to use head to output quality entertainment product.

Some nostalgy rant about convinience of older websites and absense of uneeded crap. Don’t you remember? Here is some fine examples of modern sites, which try to match older web in terms of ergonomics and overall perception.

RUSSIANS ARE NOT THAT BAD ▀ NO TO WAR

The whole concept of blog was non-political information and entertainment.
But world is changing pretty fast. Everybody heard about recent activities of Russian “government”.
I put quotation marks because you must understand that people who are in charge in Russia don’t have any relation to Russian nation.

PINEPHONE PRO ▀ EXCITING LINUX PHONE ALMOST READY FOR USAGE

UPDATED ON: 2023-01-24 After long consideration my interest is lost, due to understanding the fact that 4G module is 100% closed blackbox, which cancels all privacy benefits of the phone in one stroke. It’s a true thing for official version of the phone. On the bright side there is an [unofficial open-source project] of modem firmware in early alpha. Will report back if something good happens. I bet some of you are already tired of ugly g monopoly with their telemetric data mining platform os-called operating system.

AKI KAURISMÄKI ▀ THE ESSENCE OF MINIMALISTIC MOVIES

AKI KAURISMÄKI ▀ THE ESSENCE OF MINIMALISTIC MOVIES

[Aki Kaurismaki] is Finnish film director who makes minimalistic’n’ambientish movies about life of plain folks. Some people describe Aki’s films like «depressive», but I’m not agree on such superficial conclusion. I consider his art as a very neat backdrop for inner thinking and self-analysis. Most of the characters are quite silent, but despite that fact their feelings are 100% understandable without any words. I think that Aki’s movies represent the brief essence of entire life and they teach us about many aspects of life.
WHY I DON'T LIKE BLOGGERS WITH MILLIONS OF SUBSCRIBERS

WHY I DON'T LIKE BLOGGERS WITH MILLIONS OF SUBSCRIBERS

The answer is simple and very straightforward. They sold their spirit and soul for money to promote low quality products and prepaid benchmarks. In 98% cases it is an incontestable axiom. Everything above 1.000.0000 is pure business ► nothing personal. Loads of ads, important information is uncovered and hidden, frequent misinformation, but footage quality can be quite good ► for God sake this is a business! The most quality stuff you’ll get only from bloggers with less than 500.

As long time micro stock contributor I can rest assure you that [Creative Market] is the most cool marketplace on the web to sell your digital creations. Very solid royalties to contributors, comparing to rest of the market.

In [older posts] I’ve pointed to the fact that Nokia 808 is the most powerful camera-phone in terms of provided detail. I would like to remind you that previously tested [Samsung S20] and even [1-inch Panasonic CM1] can’t stand in direct competition to Nokia 808. Here are sample pictures.
