  • Intel announces record second quarter earnings, a 78% increase in profits, and expects 10% year-on-year growth - and gets hammered on the stock market.  (Tom's Hardware)

    The last part is because AMD's second generation EPYC server chips will be out early next year, offering 48 or 64 cores where Intel's largest chips have 28 cores.  Intel won't have a response ready until 2020.

  • Do I have NBN?  No, I do not.

  • Vibora is a very fast Python web framework with out-of-the-box support for async and Redis caching.  Critical parts are written in Cython for speed.  Which means that you can't use PyPy for speed for your own code, because the PyPy / Cython interface suuuuucks.

    Which means that you'd likely be better off using PyPy and something simple like CherryPy, ignoring the horrors of async entirely and letting uWSGI manage your workers.  Which is, as it happens, also faster than the major Swift web frameworks like Vapor and Kitura.

1 "Do I have NBN?"
This is rapidly taking on a Carthage delenda est-esque aspect (not a complaint).
Do you have any real expectation that you might actually have NBN available at any reasonably-soon point?

2 It's reached my street - it's only about 100 metres away - and I was supposed to get it at the end of June.  So the answer is, no, not really.

As long as it does not end like pink batts...

I blame Tim Blair for me knowing that.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
