2018-10-04: Search server active for recent posts, rebuilding for older posts. RebeccaBlackTech restored after host's storage had a 2nd SAN hiccup on 9/24. No damage, but we need to import posts from the a contingency scraper. Many thanks to our new tetrarchy of sysadmins who worked to fix this complex service after the loss of the original admin. More info later. Donations would still help in case of image storage failure and we still need a new scraper.
The server is stable, but the scraper is at its final limits due to crippling resource use and cloudflare limits, so /gif/ and /wsg/ images are paused. Let's solve this: help build a new scraper. More details here.

Is this brand a meme? I'm looking forward to building a PC for my visual design work but I don't understand why is it 4x more expensive than a regular Dell or LG IPS of equivalent specs. And is the 10-bit feature actually noticeable for video editing to justify the price and a Quadro on top of that? Am I missing something here? Thank you in advance.
