This Asus program came with my motherbord. And apparently it will help you save power... and thus reduce C02 emission... Right sounds nice and well. I'm not asking if it works or not. What i would like to know is what those figures mean...



Reduced CO2 Emission:

46834.420 mg

How much would that be??? what can i compare that to? How long does it take a stationary car to output that amount of CO2?

And than the total CPU Energy saving:
76.153529 (left the formula out, but see screenshot)

Same for this. If compared to a light bulb. How long can i let a light bulb glow with what i saved?

Note: This is the amount i "saved/reduced" since 18/8/2008... So about two weeks...

mg or if you want it expanded Milligram (metric system), sorry I don't know what that is in emperial, is (proably) the quantity of CO2.
A random car* would do something like 210 g/km. (that's 210,000 mg/km)

Honestly that program makes me laugh.

Hmmm, this a very silly question indeed. I was searching through some old threads for fun and noticed something. A lot of the 2003 members don't have avatars. At first I dismissed this as a new forum adapting, but then saw this thread:

http://forums.animesuki.com/showthre...?t=3170&page=3

Further down the page NSW says:

Yet ato has no avatar. I heard that a couple years ago the forum suffered from a data reset. Could this have something to do with it?

Yes avatars were lost once.

What you are refering to is the complete data loss of dec2005, which is unrelated.
Note my join date; I had to re-register at that time, among accounts post and otherwise were lost as well.
You'll find a few other memebers suffered the same fate.

It most likely is to do with the forum reset we had back in 2005.

What does this mean for me?

Avatars and profile pictures are missing.
The images were corrupted due to a vBulletin bug that can only be fixed before doing the backup, which means... no way to fix it now.

Heh, I don't mind being wrong.

I have a question about AnimeSuki, itself. What's the difference between a moderator with the "AnimeSuki Site Staff" title, and a moderator without that title? Also moderators do/don't like giving infractions/warnings/suspensions/bans to users? Another somewhat unrelated question, do we have a forum where users may discuss fanfiction in general, if so could you provide a link?

Thanks, I hope this is the right forum to discuss such matters.

Been asked before, New "Public Groups" on AnimeSuki?

Moderator, someone who moderates discussion on the forum; you're proably used to this concept already. Site Staff are the members who manage and maintain the main site. The majority share both roles, anime_layer to my knowledge is the only one who doesn't have the Moderator responsibility.

They will give it out easily if you easily break the rules. I'm more then certain they are given based on certain preset criteria; like in most Vb forums nowadays.

Yes, the Fan Creation forum has been used in the past for this purpose. xris's silence on the matter leaves me in doubt however.
If you want to discuss Nanoha related fanfics I think there is at least one very popular thread already.

*waits for xris to come in and tell me how wrong I am*

So according to that program i reduce the same amount a car would create in 20km... Granted it's correct. Doesn't sound to bad. And at the same time, it sounds useless.

I don't know if that laugh is a bad thing or good thing. But i'll laugh along because i don't know what is going on

I think you have the decimal point in the wrong place. Assuming the figures supplied by Cats are correct (and there is no reason to think otherwise) then...

Car uses 210,000 mg/km
m/b saved 46,834 mg (over 2 weeks)

So that means it is equivalent to a car travelling about 220 metres, which takes about 9 seconds (at 60mph). Compare this to the 2 weeks it took your m/b to achieve this (1,209,600 seconds), it means something like a factor of 134,400.

Your m/b is saving 1/134,400th (or 0.000744%) of a car.

BTW, the m/b itself doesn't cause any CO2 emission as far as I'm aware so the figures must be that of the average power station generating the electricity would save due to the reduced power intake of the m/b.

There, a silly answer to a silly question

Yea i know it would be C02 emission reduced from power station with the power i save.

But uuh... 9 seconds.... I'll start uninstalling when i get home

Thanks for the answer.

This is very silly, I heard the name of the program yesterday but forgot about it, I was hoping anyone knew it (since it is used by most DJ's en VJ's)
Its a program for music making, DJing and VJing and it was something with apple, I first thought Appleton but all I end up with is a music group or a town. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

You're probably thinking of Ableton Live. While Ableton is pretty popular, I really doubt that "most DJs and VJs" would an accurate description of its userbase. There are a lot of competing products out there these days.

Just in case that wasn't what you were thinking of, other possibilities include...
- Apple Logic (the lowest price professional audio/synth editor)
- Apple Loops (a loop utility from Apple that plugs into several professional audio editors)
- Apple Garageband (a popular budget audio/synth editor)
Of course, these all run on a Mac.

Or on the outside, attempting to think of things that might be remembered as "Apple"something... Maybe you're thinking of sequencer application FruityLoops? Or the Sony audio editor ACID?

I think that was the one, but in any case what would be good software for DJ/VJing ? I'm still a beginner at this so I got no clue on these things yet
