Image Dump

Thanks, Doc, what kind of graphics memory usage are you seeing with your card (I assume you use a program like EVGA Precision, which is what I have, as well as MSI Afterburner.)  How often do you get over 2 GB VRAM usage at 1080 P resolution or over 95% graphics card usage?

davidrn , play with settings for the most part.  Once I have good exposure and color settings I put the app in 4k and take a screenshot. This is what I've been asking too.  Do you play with exposure similar to how you would with a camera?  Is there an auto setting which will automatically give you ...

Planets with potentially breathable atmospheres

Conspiracy Theory Thread

Do you guys think that people actually believe these things or do they just say they do to be contrary or troll or what not? I mean some "conspiracies" might be true- I've read a great deal about the JFK assassination and there seems to be credible evidence of more than one shooter (also, ...

this clown is a socialist (the t-shirt)? he sounds more like a corporatist who spreads misinformation for the fossil fuel industry.  Incidentally, the government can't "fix" anything- it's up to all of us.

Planets with potentially breathable atmospheres

Hi Guys, I refined my atmosphere analyzer to suggest the habability for humans. It's made in excel. On the left side you enter information about a planet found in Space Engine. And on the right hand side you get a list of athmospheric and other physical caracteristica. Calculations are based on a s...

6608 -Nanotechnology truly takes off and permeates every aspect of life We're fairly close to this point and I think this is where the story of humanity ends. 6611 That would be nice but don't keep your hopes up.

The Future of Humanity & Intelligent life in the universe

6613 -- while they don't necessarily save us from the ultimate catastrophe of heat death -- While heat death still occurs there are ideas out there that support the notion of a new universe being born when entropy reaches it max. Spontaneous Inflation and the Origin of the Arrow of Time We suggest ...

General global warming / climate chage discussion

6564 Well the lower range of the predictions for 2070 was around 3 feet. That's above the IPCC upper range. See the NOAA PDF I included above.  We go by revised NOAA figures that are specific to the region I live in, not IPCC numbers.  Note at the end of the report, they stated that "only the ...

General global warming / climate chage discussion

I use NOAA because they specifically stated that the sea level rise for us will be far worse than other parts of the world.  There was a Dr. Hook who is renowned at NOAA and AMS who was interviewed and talked about the possible 6-8 foot rise for the NE United States.  He also stated that climate cha...
