The Availability Report Will Not Be Televised Edition

Tech News

  • My back is mostly functional again but I'm now suffering from the effects of not moving for nearly five days.  Joy.


  • GitHub went down again.  (Reddit)

    Favourite comment:
    While testing the availability report, we accidentally simulated a failure in production. This caused a real failure in production as the code was not designed to deal with this in production mode.


  • On what planet?  (ZDNet)

    WeWork predicts profits on an uptick in demand for office space.

    No, really.


  • Die AVX-512, die!  (ZDNet)

    Linus (original Linus) is not a fan, it seems.

    I just want to add that Linus now looks exactly what you would have expected an older Linus to look like when he was younger.


  • Microsoft won't be doing anything to support PHP 8.0 on Windows.  (Bleeping Computer)

    First, what kind of insane masochist would run PHP on Windows?

    Second...  No, that's it really.


  • All the Raspberry Pepsi is gone.

    I still have half a dozen bottles, and ten cans, but they're the last of it.  I saw it on sale half price and ordered a dozen bottles and just got an out of stock notification.

    Hope they bring back lime, that was really nice.  Orange Coke too.


  • That's just retarded.  (9to5Mac)

    No, Microsoft doesn't need to drop Intel for Arm, and they're not going to drop Intel for Arm.  Drop Intel for AMD, maybe.


Disclaimer: I don't care.  Burn it.  Burn it all.

1 PHP:  all that means is Microsoft won't be building it themselves, instead letting others do it: "This message means Microsoft aren't going to produce official builds for PHP 8 onwards."

2 The WeWork announcement, as far as I can tell, is "Companies don't know how their need for office space will shake out in the next 6-18 months, so they're renting space from us as a stopgap.  Therefore we're going to be profitable from now on."

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