1 At least the article about SSD overclocking mentions--eventually--that the controller is default underclocked so it won't throttle.

2 I upgraded my son to an i7-12700K this week, because his 10600K was starting to be a bottleneck in a couple of games.  While I was at it I got a 14700K and it's noticeably faster in a few places, which surprised me.  it'll run all 6 P cores at 5.5GHz all day long, and sometimes one or two will hit 5.6, on regular tasks.  Probably going to get a slightly bigger HSF though, because the fan--while not obnoxious--is more noticeable than it used to be.  Kinda got tired of waiting for the big generational gains we used to see and went with something that was still a decent upgrade.
Guild Wars 2's graphics engine is somewhat dated and single-thready, so there are a few world bosses that can drop your GPU to 18FPS (or less if your computer isn't fairly powerful) and the new CPU seems to go no lower than high 20s to low 30s, so that helps some.  (Whatever the engine does, it's not as choppy at lowish frame rates as a lot of games can be; one thing it does is stop rendering player skins at a certain point, giving each character a default skin based on class, race, and gender.

3 Node, like cancer, has spread everywhere.  I was looking at a web page last week on how to set up an Eclipse environment for doing microcontroller development and, you guessed it, you gotta use Node to install the other stuff you actually need (or, I guess, figure it out all yourself, which is really annoying.)

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