Christmas Hamper Full Of Poo Edition

Tech News

  • Broadcom is shipping the industry's first 25.6Tbps Ethernet switch.  (Tom's Hardware)

    That's 64 ports of 400GbE, so it's perfect for your next home networking project assuming that your home is the Large Hadron Collider.

  • Intel has released the i3-9350KF.  (Tom's Hardware)

    Four cores, four threads, no integrated graphics, buy AMD.

  • You can't index JSON arrays under TokuDB, only InnoDB.  Poot.

    Overall, though, TokuDB is a pretty clear winner for this application.  The database size is - hang on, let me measure it...

    For bulk-inserting 250,000 sample randomly-generated comments:

    InnoDB  168M  37.4 seconds
    MyISAM  115M  25.1 seconds
    TokuDB   79M  12.8 seconds

    InnoDB provides better transaction throughput than TokuDB on a high-end server, but TokuDB seems to be substantially better on low-end and virtual servers.

    It lacks some features (array and full-text indexes) but the benefits are too good to ignore.  And full-text indexes on InnoDB require a metric shit ton of system resources and are just not viable for my use case.

  • FISA judge slaps FBI.  (TechDirt)

    Not directly tech-related, but illustrates why I track TechDirt.  Yes, they're all dirty rotten liberals, but they are principled dirty rotten liberals.

  • Vivaldi now pretends to be Chrome on certain sites, because certain sites are retarded.  (Bleeping Computer)

    Shopify, for example.

Disclaimer: 42C here at PixyLab today and my air conditioner is dead.  I tried turning it on again despite the earlier flooding, but it would have none of it.  Blaargh.

1 Vivaldi:  Huh.  I used Edge's browser tools to spoof the UA as Vivaldi, using the exact string they listed, and had no problem viewing Shopify.

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