- The T2 chip in the new MacBook Pro crashes randomly.
The new MacBook Pros with T2 chips do indeed kernel panic randomly, as shown in the attached image. I'd hold off buying if you can; Apple has work to do. /cc @pschiller@tim_cook@Apple@AppleSupportpic.twitter.com/zKVQAtJkQBâ€” Bryan Jones (@bdkjones) August 16, 2018
Here's a thirty-seven page forum thread from users whose $4800 MacBooks crashed with related errors. (MacRumors)
- If you read AnandTech's Threadripperoo review before, well, they've updated it slightly. Like, another 12,000 words. (AnandTech)
- The wonderful thing about standards, is standards are wonderful things. Wait, no, that's tiggers. Meanwhile here's 13 next-generation form factors for high density NVMe SSDs. (AnandTech)
- Testing AMD's StoreMI with Intel's Optane produces terrible results. Credit to Linus for persisting and finding out why - not a fault specifically in either product, but StoreMI likes to cache everything, and a 32GB Optane drive isn't big enough to produce good results on huge game files. Giving it 256GB of SSD for the cache fixed everything.
But warning: Once you have used a drive under StoreMI you have to hard reformat it before you can use it anywhere else.
Oh, wait, now you don't need to watch the video. Oops.

Compose in a Notepad window or something? I hate using web editors for just that reason.

Had the image uploads in one tab, the text in the other, and hit back before switching tabs to get the next link, and boom, all gone.
And you can't preview drafts either.
And setting up a new image folder is a PITA because the templates are all wrong.

Saving to DRAFT works.
(Just remember to hit publish...I'm bad about that)

I can make it auto-restore from the last save, and then add something to let you jump to a previous save if you accidentally delete a whole bunch of text and need to get it back.
This is all in the cards for the new system, but I hadn't settled on the editor until yesterday. Now that I have, I can hook it up in this version.
