  • Intel's upcoming 13700T - a nominal 35W part - is reported to outrun AMD's 105W 5800X in both single and multi-threaded tests.  (Tom's Hardware)

    This could be true.  The 13700K is a 16 core / 24 thread part, while the 5800X is 8 core / 16 threads, so with one core running very fast or all 16 cores running slowly it can outperform the 5800X in the respective benchmarks while using less power.  But also being less useful for many workloads, because games (for example) really don't like it when one thread runs at half the speed of the others.

    Also it could be using a lot more than 35W.


  • Who cares if it scales?  (Better Programming)

    Me, because whenever someone writes something that doesn't scale, fixing it becomes my problem.  Often at 3AM.  On a holiday weekend.


  • Quad9 continues to fight those jerks at Sony in court.  (TorrentFreak)

    Quad9 is one of the public, global DNS servers - the others being Google's 8.8.8.8 and Cloudflare's 1.1.1.1.  Sony wants it to block pirate sites, even though it doesn't have anything whatsoever to do with the pirate sites - it just performs lookups of DNS information from other servers.

    It's a pretty important case because at its core is whether you can repeat a piece of information that is (a) public and (b) verifiably true when someone decides they don't like the implications of that information.

Is it still illegal to tell people to hold down shift while inserting that CD?

2 I know a guy who ran a cockatoo rescue.  They're smart, they're capable of opening latches, picking combination locks, and even unlocking padlocks if they can get their claws on the key.  The endgame of this in Australia may be giving up, or else remote-control locks with no manual activation.

3 Does it strike anyone else as kinda racist that no-one has even discussed simply negotiating with the cockatoos?  Like, maybe just put a cheeseburger and a very large box of french fries atop every rubbish bin as a good will gesture.

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