Double The Fun Twice Edition
- Ordered the RAM upgrade for my two PCs today. There are finally some good deals on Amazon... Except it's Amazon UK and delivery might be by Friday or it might be three weeks from Friday.
So I ended up ordering two 16GB Crucial modules - since Amazon AU helpfully have a 3 per customer limit - and two slightly more expensive Kingston modules. Should have them tomorrow.
(I decided not to try messing about with 32GB modules, at least for now.)
Update: It's here already, already.
- Third-generation Epyc can hit 4GHz unless it can't. (WCCFTech)
We're running a cluster of Threadripper servers at work because they had significantly better single-threaded performance than Epyc did when we got them. Downside is they don't support registered memory, so the limit is 256GB per system.
The higher-clocked members of the new Epyc lineup should perform better even on single-threaded workloads and support up to 2TB of RAM.
Of course, a new generation of Threadripper parts will also be arriving soon and will be even faster again.

Guess I'll need to fins a new excuse then.
- Google is forging ahead with Chrome changes that will cripple ad blockers. (CNet)
Google is an advertising company, not a tech company.
- It's not me, it's You(Tube).
Just went down. Worldwide, apparently. Embedded videos still play but the site itself is dead as a doornail.
- Gmail too. Oh, good. Well, since pyjamas are out, there's my excuse.
- Wait. Gonna try something.
Make that some embedded videos still play.
- Some sites using Google services also got side-swiped by the outage.
We use Google Cloud for one of our apps at work, but just cloud servers, nothing fancy. That has continued to run without a blip, as has their DNS.

Vivaldi Browser - Ad blockers or not your choice matters Vivaldi Browser - Why we introduced Ad blocker to Vivaldi
For those who aren't familiar with Vivaldi, they're the reassembled team that put together the original Opera browser, before it went Chromium, dumped 3/4ths of it's functionality, and became an unmitigated mess. The Vivaldi team seems to actually care about making the Net a better place via their product.
