New Rule

Recommended Posts

Pictures of other people should also be illegal.

 

Please note that this is prohibited (by law) in the Netherlands (under portrait right) and any moderator in a moderated forum can be liable when said moderator doesn't act by removing it.

 

Court fines can be as high as 25.000 euro.

If I may interject, a dial-up user could use the option to disable viewing avatars and signatures. Why should we punish the majority for the benefit of the minority?

 

Serious inquiry.

Do you mean pictures of real people? Yes, they should be forbidden, unless the other person knows and approves (say for instance it is your girlfriend or your boyfriend).

In any case this forum is owned by English people and located in England, so I suppose English law applies.

It is actually the other way around. There are very few people who use(d) animated avatars, while I suppose there are thousands of people on dial-up. Not everybody lives in a wealthy western country. And even 35% of US internet is still on dial-up: http://www.webmasterworld.com/webmaster/40...ight=msg4087262

Besides "flashing", fast animations can be annoying for everybody, not just people on dial-up.

The purpose of this forum is not showing off, but learning about OS X on PCs and other Mac related matters.

great rule, thx. Esp. XLR's anim has always been getting on my nerves. In FF I would just press ESC but in Safari that does not work ..

    • Hi @fabiosun and thank's for your patience with an old and stubborn man.   I am 100 % sure that my MSR 0xE2 register is unlocked thank's to you.   My system is 100% stable and I haven't had one kp with this configuration in the last two weeks.    I'm now running without TSCAdjustReseat.kext and I can't se any issues in performance with or without that kext. What I however can se is that the amount of total energy consumed during the test-cycle are 10 times higher without the kext (three times Cinebench CPU and two times Luxmark open CL) as you can see in the output from my AppleIntelInfo.kext attached in my earlier post.   I have tested running Cinebench five times in a row with or without TSC kext and have exactly the same performance (see attached files). Temperature is not a problem at all.   Everything seems to be fine so I guess I have to wait and see if upcoming 10.13.5 maybe recognise Intel Xeon w series processor as native.     
    • Tried with HPET enabled and disabled so I don't think it's that. I'd tried with bus ratio before to no effect but wouldn't hurt to try again. The clock runs at the correct speed.
    • could be an HPET / TSC Sync issue. does your system clock slow down or run faster then it should. also check cpu and buss ratios.
    • @MacPeet El capitan. It has t7700 cpu, so HS is not option for now. Have to find t9500 cpu. I bought this laptop for 30euros 3 weeks ago, with everything working, battery like new, it looks like from store, 4gb ram, 1920x1200 17" screen, replaced wifi and put SSD. Also sleep and hibernation working, native brightness, volume touch buttons work. Windows was not option because of broken  touchpad drivers, and linux because of slow graphics. Here everything works like it should.   AD1981 is also on thinkpad T60. I searched everywhere, but no solution. Here is some half working legacy driver, don't know how binary was patched(if it was): https://forum.thinkpads.com/viewtopic.php?t=85344&start=28#p564260
    • the slowness is most likely IM's host provider. we used to use ONE.com but they sucked and it was super slow so we switched and things definitely got better on the slowness front
