Anyone out there know computer internals? I have a Dell power supply with an 8 pin socket marked “VGA”, I have a GPU with an 8 pin PCIe power socket. I want to plug A into B. Calling the computer store to see if they had a appropriate cable I was told “oooh no, can’t sell you one of those, you need to get the exact right cable for the power supply brand”. Is this true? Are 8-pin cables not just 8-pin cables? Where do I find the right cable?

Just saying maybe the Open Geospatial Consortium needs to think about hiring John Carmack.
Anyway it is good
WAIT I forgot an important step! Before you add the rice, stir through like a desert spoon of flour through the vegetables and mushrooms.
I guess if you were on a stove you would just boil the shit out of this for an hour or so. In the pressure cooker I just put it on the soup cycle which is about 30 minutes. Now the trick is, after it’s finished cooking, pour in 1/2 cup of milk and stir it through. Makes it amazing.
Add in a litre of stock. Doesn’t matter. I’ve tried beef, chicken and vegetable stock and honestly it’s all good. Add a litre of water too. The mushrooms and rice will soak up the liquid and make it thick so add plenty so it’s well covered.
Once that’s done add in like a cup and a half I guess of brown rice? I use this brown rice + quinoa stuff because it’s nice. Stir about for a minute.
As promised, mushroom and brown rice soup recipe. Now I do this in a pressure cooker but on the stove is fine. Whatever. 2 carrots, 1 large onion, 3 cloves of garlic, 3 stalks of celery, about a bag (400g?) mushrooms, sauté that in some olive oil until nice and soft. Add some pepper, parsley, paprika and couple of sticks of rosemary.
Our car, which is a plug-in hybrid, is being repaired after some tosser ran into the back of it, so I have a hire car. I’m here sitting in it with it idling and it suddenly occurred to me - oh shit, you can’t just sit in these bastards with the engine on, they actually use petrol while going nowhere. Dumb things.
@BDA For room ambience I found this great set of impulses (Samplecity Bricasti M7 Impulse library), unfortunately now only available via the Wayback Machine, but worth downloading while you can. https://web.archive.org/web/20190201211631/http://www.samplicity.com/bricasti-m7-impulse-responses/
By way of obvious demonstration; first half of this recording is with a Gods Cab impulse loaded, second half of the recording is the exact same recording but without it turned on and sounds shocking.
