As The Sun Sinks Slowly In The Wherever Edition

Top Story

  • Well, work insanity is finally easing for at least a couple of days. Have a big project kicking off next week and October is likely to be another write-off, but at least I won't be working 18 hour days and moving house at the same time.

    These posts will gradually return to their usual schedule and content.


  • It seems like I picked the right week to be on a big city salary with a small town mortgage: The GPU shortage is over.  (The Verge)

    Do I need a new GPU?  There are games I want to play and applications I want to run that can benefit from teraflops of crunching power, but I already have two laptops with RTX 3060 graphics, which while far from high end are perfectly fine for Minecraft and...  Also Minecraft.

    Still, with GPU prices down 57% since January it's awfully tempting.  (Tom's Hardware)


  • In fact, Nvidia, AMD, and Apple are all cutting back on 5nm production for their next-generation parts.  (Tom's Hardware)

    Thanks to our leaders for running a pump-and-dump scam on the entire global economy.
