There's something about that URL that is making me suspicious, but I can't quite put my finger on what it is...

Farking hell, he was trying to save someone who refused to get off the tracks and caused both of them to get hit. Good on the guy trying help someone but too bad didn't have time to save himself after the other guy refused his help.

duffblue: On a serious note: if you're ever on the subway and somebody falls onto the tracks, let them die. There's no way you can help them.

The tracks are called the "Right of Way".   If you are wondering who has the right of way, here's a hint: Its not you.

This is sad amd heroic, but that's the first time I've seen an accident victim's employer mentioned when he wasn't at work. This article sponsored by by Nvidia.

At least this proves that it isn't always the drivers that cause fatal errors.

HaywoodJablonski: Sounds like this story involves at least one bit of RAM

I'm just here to monitor what the cards on Fark come up with in the way of a play on words.

Rabid Badger Beaver Weasel: styckx: If he was running SLI he would only be half dead

Half of him did die. The other half died a little further down the tracks.

/Aisle seat, please.

This is why you always enable vsync.

Depends on whether or not the train was built to take advantage of that, I'm finding an awful lot of trains that don't.  Meanwhile the whole incident could have been much more interesting if the train's engine supported physx!

If he was the guy responsible for all the 'fixes' in the recent drivers that screw with the surround support vs application maximizing across all monitors instead of just the one you want...then well its too soon.  Good tomorrow.

You know, I normally really appreciate a good dig at hardware drivers.

Too soon, Fark. Too soon.
