    No, you just find yourself at a table hearing about how you're killing the planet by eating meat and how much healthier you'd be if you just ate like a rabbit and took all these supplements instead.

    My favourite subtype of vegans is the ruminants. Coarse grind, medium, toasted brioche bun, Jack cheese.

    Eh, I'm happy for anyone to criticize what I do. And I'm happy to keep doing it right infront of them while they do. :)

    You are supposed to set it to 33890 to fool all the hackers. Or change the listening port in windows and have public 3389 go to the custom listening port, security through obscurity!

    I've already posited my opinion on this, but here's another:

    Heterogeneous computing is what most folks are betting on. Lots of different vendors in a big pool, and smarter software to send the right questions to the right hardware to get the answers the fastest. So while Intel and AMD will be a part of that, supercomputers of the future won't only be that.

    Sounds like you just hang out with shit vegans. I'm a vegan, I mentioned it once on OCAU before IIRC. It's not something I talk about often and I don't push my thoughts on others because I know as a person the best way to have me completely dismiss someone's ideals is to have them try shovel it down my throat.

    Also supplements are not necessary at all, I've never taken them. At most, maybe B12 due to pesticide use.

    As always in any group there, good ones and bad ones. I avoid anyone preaching shit whatever that shit may be.

    You don't know, or care about the good ones... so when forming stereotypes, they are built from the bad ones.
    Same is true, no matter how you want to divvy up the population.

    I like to counter it by preaching my own contrary shit. Only louder.
