Re: Why are programs allowed to overtake processor and memory to the point of stalling the system?

I fiddled with inxi, and took a look at the CPU and GPU temperatures, and wondered what they ought to be. This I think is the most likely cause, as electrical components heat up the conductivity goes down so the hotter the machine runs the less efficient the components are. They have to draw more c...

Yes. OK, settled.

It's not a miracle drug though.
I agree, the effects are pretty mild, some of those concentrates are fairly strong but I find chamomile tea just about as effective for a sleep aid.

Re: Wow! Just swallowed some CBD oil. Anyone else uses this new mircacle supplement? I got sleepy and relaxed instantly!

So Hemp and marijuana are classified as cannabis but are two different plants. I was thinking more in terms of scientific definition than legal. I remember talking to a guy at a hempfest a couple of years ago who was talking about new laws concerning hemp but I never checked it out. By scientific de...

Since I am deadly allergic to marijuana, I wonder if I will get the same reaction to CBD? I'd check with your doctor! Great idea, I don't relish the idea of using an epi-pen. I doubt your doctor will be able to tell you which of the alkaloids present in cannabis is responsible for your allergy, alt...

Re: South Korea says goodbye to Microsoft

Anyone saying the Government is wasteful and the private sector is efficient is, frankly, either ignorant or on the take. I own my own business and I am not on the take, thank you very much.

Re: Adobe Customers Now At Risk of Legal Action For Not Staying Current...

I am all about personal liberty and freedom, I'm just not interested in actively recruiting AOLuserz to the platform, that's all. What about the freedom of the creators of intellectual content? Free speech man, the freedom to exchange ideas means we have the right to remain silent as well. I don't ...

I'm not interested at this point in my life of having platform-using peers who lack critical self-determination. I don't know if that makes me a bad person, but I really just no longer have room for intellectual laziness or uncuriousness. So you're not interested in individual freedom at all, just ...

Re: [SOLVED] Hypothetical question about gravity

While the being may be constructed of particles, there is absolutely not a skerrick of evidence to even hint that consciousness is in any way, shape or form, material. I'm not saying that it is. I would, however, suggest that consciousness is affected by material. LSD has a very profound and extrem...

If I buy 1000 palladium metersticks and place them in a carefully controlled environment, they'll probably all be identical even a hundred years from now.
