Wonder what Crysis looks like on a $5000 Quadro graphics card?

Obviously, Nvidia's Quadro M6000 is not designed for gaming. The GPU is on par with Nvidia's top-of-the-line GeForce cards, but there's that ridiculous 12 to 24 Gigs of optional ECC memory in the pants. Putting logic aside and techno-lustin...   read

Area man crochets for 800 hours, makes massive Mario blanket

I'm not sure what's more impressive: the blanket, the fact that he put 800 hours of painstaking detail into it, or that this took six and a half years of on-and-off production before it was complete. It measures 2.2 x 1.8 funnymaths, and wa...   read
