Daily News Stuff 30 July 2018

See the next post for an update on the database glitch overnight that affected all the blogs.

Tech News

  • Microsoft has a Windows update to reduce the impact of Windows updates by using a predictive AI model of user behaviour rather than, I don't know, FUCKING ASKING ME.  Not that I am annoyed with Windows 10 today, not at all.  (Fudzilla)

  • AMD's 32-core Threadripper 2990WX Turbo Diesel Anthrax Monster Plutonium Limited Edition was listed briefly by a Canadian retailer for the equivalent of US$1835.

    Intel's fastest workstation processors, the Core i9 7980XE and Xeon W-2195, have 18 cores and cost $1999 and $2500 respectively.  (WCCFTech)

  • You can now run vi in your browser.  (No, I don't know why either.)

  • Hello, World on z/OS in under a week.

  • Samsung announces V-NAND 5G.  Major features are more faster (1.4Gbps), less powers (down from 1.8v to 1.2v), and layers everywhere.  "Over 90 layers" which probably means they tried for 96 like Toshiba but they don't all quite work.  (ServeTheHome)

  • My ISP has stopped showing an NBN connection date of June 29 and is now just showing "not available" with no further details.  I could run Cat 5 from my house to the fiber endpoint.  The one thing worse than a private company having a local monopoly on internet access is the government having a national monopoly.

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