Duck Tape Edition

Top Story

  • I managed to snag an Xbox Series X. The local electronics store - local to my old place in Sydney, that is - had it in stock a week after I handed in the keys, but only for in-store purchases. But the "notify me" button on the Microsoft store had changed to a "buy now" button when I checked today. The buy now button didn't work, but when I logged in and went back through the Xbox page I was able to add it to my cart and checked out.

    Since I am now moderately far from the madding crowd, I should have it in two weeks.


  • I also managed to snag the cord for my new electric mower, something I somehow avoided for 15 years with the previous one. So into town I went for some pliers and electrical tape. I have pliers and electrical tape... Somewhere.  Easier to go into town.


  • I've been hearing what sounded like ducks out the back of the house the past couple of weeks, but never caught sight of anything duck-like. Until today, walking back from the shops (which is quite a hike - there's a 400 foot elevation difference) I came across a herd of wild ducks crossing the street a couple of blocks from my house.

    So, yes. Ducks.


  • Australian mining company Fortescue Metals Group plans to spend $6 billion on "Net Zero" investments by 2030 - including hydrogen. (Financial Times)

    Hydrogen is useless as a mainstream fuel. The energy density is terrible and it leaks through everything. Anyone pushing it as a fuel is trying to sell you something.

The Making of Gura Gaiden the Animation Video of the Day


Where is our Hololive anime? If they need money, all they have to do is open a Kickstarter and they'll be buried in cash in the first twenty minutes. And it's not like the rest of the anime industry is doing anything that impressive right now.

1 My long held sneaking suspicion is that hydrogen IS unicorn flatus. As for the 20 quadrillion ants,at least 11 quadrillion of those are in my backyard in the form of what we call "fire ants"

2 Re the A770, Tom's says "he A380 was only in China" although I just checked and Best Buy sells one iBuyPower prebuilt with an A380 in it, and you can select it iBP's product configurator on their own website (for some PC models).

3 Hilariously (?), Microcenter has one A380 in stock at my local store: ASRock Intel Arc A380 Challenger ITX Overclocked Single Fan 6 GB GDDR6 PCIe 4.0 Graphics Card - Micro Center, $139.

4 Never pegged Pixy as an Xbox player. If anything maybe a retrogamer/grouch. Was it for Game pass?

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