Among Our Weapons Edition

Top Story

  • What really went on at FTX.  (New York Post)

    Drugs and vegetarian food, and setting fire to other people's money.

    Decentralised finance is showbusiness for ugly, incompetent, dishonest meth addicts.


  • Elon Musk hasn't done anything new to outrage the usual suspects.  They're still outraged, of course, but it's not new.


Tech News

  • There are only two hard problems in computer science:

    0. Cache invalidation
    1. Naming things
    2. Asynchronous callbacks
    3. Off-by-one errors
    4. Scope creep
    5. Bounds checking

    I had a story to go along with this but the story was boring.


  • Lenovo has accidentally confirmed the new, cheaper, lower power Ryzen 7900 and 7700 non-X parts.  (WCCFTech)

    We don't know if these will be available as retail parts - the 5900 wasn't, for example - or if they do, whether will come bundled with CPU coolers.

    AMD is also preparing a lower cost motherboards based on the A620 chips set.

    Current Ryzen 7000 motherboards are quite expensive, even at the low end.  The current cheapest Socket AM5 motherboards cost twice as much as the cheapest Socket AM4 boards.  They are better, yes, but not twice as better.
