Even The Spiders Are Moeblobs Edition

Tech News

  • You've redecorated.  I don't like it.  (PC Perspective)

    Actually it's not bad at all; they just need to add a recent story list at top right.

  • Dell says oh, yeah, Epyc.  (Tom's Hardware)

    Possibly Intel's chip shortages are biting them, or it's customer demand, or some combination.

  • Lego is putting the STEM in Star Wars.  (Tech Crunch)

    Or possibly vice versa.  Anyway, you can build and program your own mouse droid.  And R2-D2.

  • Why can't I access archive.is when using Cloudflare's 1.1.1.1 DNS?  (Hacker News)

    Short answer: Because archive.is is run by crazy people.

  • Wondering how a 112-core server with 6TB of Optane DIMMs might perform?  Wonder no more!  (Serve the Home)

    Overall, the answer is meh.  Unless you absolutely need the biggest single-image system you can get, two systems with quad Xeon Gold 6138 CPUs will be significantly faster and cheaper. 

  • I/O is faster than CPU.  (PDF)

    When your disk drive had an 11ms access time, it didn't  matter much how many layers of code were between your application and the write head.  Ten years on, a good enterprise SSD can have a write access time of 11µs, but CPUs aren't anything remotely close to 1000x faster.

    The solution?  Get rid of most of the operating system.  Maybe.

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