  • The Atari VCS is almost here.  (Tom's Hardware)

    Hidden inside the retro-ugly case is a Ryzen embedded APU - just a tiny one, with 2 cores / 4 threads and Vega 3 graphics.  So, basically, 20 times as fast as a Playstation 2.

    $249 with 4GB RAM, $279 with 8GB.  ETA March 2020.

  • Russia will ban all VPN providers who are any good.  (TechDirt)

    Which comes as no surprise to anyone.

  • Is content moderation impossible at scale or is Twitter just run by idiots?  (TechDirt)

    We report, you facepalm.

  • Modern web-based documentation systems SUCK.  Give me back Word!  Give me back Ami Pro for that matter.

Video of the Day

Two tech journalists talk tech.

Disclaimer: Bleh.  It's been one of those weeks.  One of our MongoDB servers died Tuesday; our GitLab server exploded today.  No data lost but I could have done without the excitement.

2 The magic smoke comes out of the Gitlab admins' ears when they're trying to diagnose the problem. Until I had to deal with Gitlab, I didn't even know you could strace every process on the system at the same time and log them all to files, much less need to.

3 I should see if I can find the photos our colo facility sent us a few years ago when one of our servers literally caught fire.

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