    Isn't it reassuring to know that when you get something wrong on the internet there are always several people willing to tell you just how wrong you are? <3 :)

    Well it's reassuring to know that at least one person in the world thinks of me as 'precious' :grin:.

    Nah, nothing malicious about it. Just part of where I work so a bit of insight that's all. If we are talking fast food then your probably right. America loves a fast food joint. I'd kiss back but social distancing and masks until the 19th so I'm behaving

    Back to talking about hardware gents, or I buy everyone on this thread a 3090.

    Don't make me bankrupt myself.

    I don't see that threat as having the desired effect.

    ...anyway, @Byron C , on the subject of smarminess and preciousness vs the keyboard warrior's innate desire to one up somebody/anybody, do you suppose there might be a direct correlation between the smarm index and the pedantry coefficient?

    :naughty:

    Haha so anyway, I was out for a walk earlier and was thinking to myself about this very issue. It's fair to say that tone is very difficult to judge online, no?

    I suppose there could be, although I'd need a sufficiently large categorised data set in order to make a proper determination... :grin:

    This is why I tend to make heavy use of emoji (or smileys, as we used to call 'em).

    Are we still off-topic? I do hope so.

    Kinda... kinda not...? Machine learning & AI would, after all, be a very good reason to buy a 3090 :thumb:

    Are we all forgetting the 3 rules of bit-tech?

    1. Cheesecake
    2. No thread is allowed to stay on topic
    3. Never mention decades old hardware or you'll summon Gareth

    :p

    You don't even need to mention old hardware anymore. Since he got a proper job elsewhere he's here all the time !

    Anyone know if the 3080 is even in production anymore? Seems like the ti versions of everything have completely replaced them.

    Been looking for a normal 3080 since launch, still no luck. I don't mint paying a bit over the odds but not 2 times the price.

    Yeh they are, allegedly, but they're also switching over to the LHR models and there's also still huge demand for them.
