If you'd like feedback on your potential part list, the Part List Opinions Wanted forum is the proper place to ask. Use a part list permalink or markup from this site, not Google Drive. Also, do not request feedback via direct email or PMs. Keep it public and in the forums.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "LGA2011-3 Narrow Motherboards -- no compatible CPUs"

  • 1 month ago
  • 2 points

Ok it should be fixed now. It turns out that the issue wasn't socket related, but CPU series / chipset related. The underlying compatibility code was marking the sockets cross compatible correctly. However, we had inadvertently flagged the C612 chipset as not compatible with the Xeon E5 series. That's been fixed, so you should now see the appropriate CPUs and motherboards showing compatible.

Here are two:

Strom Thurmond

Thurmond switched parties because of his opposition to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and his support for Republican presidential candidate Senator Barry Goldwater.

On September 16, 1964, Thurmond confirmed he was leaving the Democratic Party to work on the presidential campaign of Barry Goldwater, charging it with having "abandoned the people" and having repudiated the U.S. Constitution as well as providing leadership for the eventual takeover of the U.S. by socialistic dictatorship. He called on other Southern politicians to join him in bettering the Republican Party.

Albert Watson:

Like Thurmond, Watson was an open and unashamed segregationist. Both supported Barry Goldwater's campaign for President. While Watson headed the South Carolina "Democrats for Goldwater" organization, Thurmond went as far as switching parties and becoming a Republican on September 17, 1964. Partly because of his support for Goldwater, Watson was reelected without opposition as Goldwater carried South Carolina, the first Republican to have done so since Rutherford B. Hayes in 1876. The House Democratic Caucus stripped Watson of his seniority for supporting Goldwater. Another Deep South congressman, John Bell Williams of Mississippi, lost his seniority for supporting Goldwater as well. Declaring he would "not sit around and be bullied by northern liberals," Watson resigned from Congress on February 1, 1965.[7] He then announced that he would run in the special election for his old seat on June 15, 1965—as a Republican.

I mean, just some basic research about the politics shows there was serious contention about the Civil Rights Act and segregation that led to changes in voting (and in the two above, changes in party affiliation). Do you have counterproof that that didn't happen?

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Please change the motherboard compatibility warning"

  • 1 month ago
  • 3 points

I understand what you're proposing, but here's a bit of the counterpoint: Just recently we had someone carry their build into our office so we could flash their BIOS using an older CPU. It is not uncommon. Even if updated BIOS versions are shipping from the manufacturer, there's no way of knowing how old various motherboard stock is at each retailer.

If we downgrade the warning to a note, we'll get absolutely hammered by first time builders who think our compatibility checking is broken when their builds don't boot. Getting a substitute CPU and going through a BIOS update process is fine for experienced builders, but not for first-timers.

You said:

That said, however, the more I look at it, the more I seem to realize that the general viewpoint amongst liberal people is that conservatism is the scum of the earth and that they are all violent idiots.

That's a pretty big generalization to make about liberal people, no? To quote you also:

You are free to disagree, but to me this seems to be a really big generalization.

(And)

calling out all conservatives for being stuck in the past is somewhat ignorant.

I think making broad generalizations about anyones beliefs, or lumping together a diverse demographic into one label, whether it is conservative or liberal, is pretty ignorant.

To follow up, I've rolled out a change that price graphs will now cap out the y-axis max if there are prices exceeding three standard deviations from the mean. That should fix the graph you listed plus several others that were exhibiting similar behavior. When the x-axis gets capped though the hover legend will still show the actual outlier prices.

What's your definition of rich? Does hard work entitle you to be rich? Are taxes punishment?

I ask because I'm interested in your take on those questions and not because I have any particular agenda. But it kinda feels like your questions presuppose a position that isn't yet established here.

It may be a commonly used word in the communities that you participate in, but it also may be perceived differently among the group it targets. Don't minimize the opinions or feelings of others - that's not going to lead to fruitful conversation. If you really want to engage in authentic talk, seek first to understand, then tell your side. Avoid telling any group what their beliefs are and which of those are valid or not, especially if it is a group you are not part of. Speak for yourself, not for others. It'll lend to a much more productive discussion.

Yep, we've seen this in some other situations too. At first we would just remove the price history around that time window. But it's been prevalent enough across other retailers too that that's probably not a viable long-term strategy. I'll see if we can come up with a better min/max y-axis value approach.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "What is reCAPTCHA?"

  • 1 month ago
  • 6 points

The reCAPTCHA makes it harder to automate various things on the site, such as registrations and logins. It checks various aspects of your IP, browser, how you click the button, etc, to determine the risk level of you being a bot instead of a human.

The main reason we use it on our login page is to counter credential stuffing. That's where someone goes through a list of username/password pairs they got from a breach of another site, and tries to log into this site using those credentials. If someone used the same username/password on a different site, then the attacker would be able to log in here as well. It's pretty common these days to see automated login attempts at very high rates iterating through a list of stolen username/password pairs. You can do a few things to mitigate that kind of attack:

  • You can block or rate limit based on IP. But that's broken if the attacker uses a large selection of IPs (think 10,000+) and distributes the login attempts across a huge swath of them.
  • You can rate limit based on username. But that's broken if the attacker is only doing one unique username/password pair per attempt.
  • You can put reCAPTCHA on the login page. That doesn't prevent someone logging in with stolen credentials, but it does typically block rapid automated attempts.

We also implement it on registration to prevent automated account generation by spammers.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "How Do You LOCK Prices In a list?"

  • 1 month ago
  • 1 point

When browsing a product category, you can add a parametric selection in one of two ways:

You can filter by different criteria you want (i.e. at least 1TB capacity for an SSD, only GTX 2070 video cards, etc). Then at the top right of the list of products there's an "Add From Filter" link. That'll add a parametric to your part list that will always track the lowest priced item matching the filter criteria you had set.

Or, you can click the checkboxes on the left side of each product row and the "Add From Filter" link will change to "Add From Selection". That'll add a parametric to your part list that will always track the lowest priced item from the selection of products you set the checkmark on. People commonly use this mode for when they want to use one of a handful of specifically picked items, like power supplies.

In the part list view, right to the left of the product price you'll see either a lock icon or a gear icon.

For parametric selections you'll see a lock icon. That lets you lock in that parametric selection to what product it currently has picked out.

For regular product listings you'll see a gear icon. If you click that, that will let you customize the price options for that product in your part list. You can specify a merchant of your choice, or enter a custom price of your choice.

I’ll get that refresh rate filter in later tonight - my mistake on that. Only gotcha is some manufacturers don’t list that spec so the filter for that may not be comprehensive.

On the battery life value we’re just pulling from manufacturer specs right now. I know there’s little consistency there but I figure it’s better than nothing. If laptop category usage is high enough, one day I could see us doing performance testing on them (including a battery life test across models using some consistent criteria).

Yeah we do that to make the part list a little cleaner looking. Basically we prune the available options based on what is in your part list. If you add a laptop, then a bunch of other stuff gets hidden like motherboards, cases, etc. You can still browse and add them via their category page though (from the products drop down menu).

Keep it polite or don't comment on the site. If you don't agree with the part selection, that's fine. But there's no need to be snarky about it or bring in personal attacks.

If you'd prefer to offer alternate part choices, I'd recommend spending time in our part list opinions wanted forum instead.

Yeah I debated whether it should go into a SQ1 cpu series or not. I may rename that at some point depending on what happens with it in the future. But I think if the microarchitecture stays the same, then that'll stay on Qualcomm 8cx.

Thanks for the feedback! Both of those should be fixed and the updates should show up in the next cache refresh (< 15 min). The CPU name stayed SQ1 but I changed both the series and microarchitecture to Qualcomm 8cx.
