  • So now I have routing working properly between nested containers on my private cloud. Well, I had it working already, but I had each IP listed as its own route. Fortunately I didn't need a lot of routes so far, but that was going to get out of hand soon.

    It makes sense that you have to be very precise with the route command. It doesn't make so much sense that they don't bother to document it.

  • TechDirt is drunk again.

  • TSMC is building a $12 billion 5nm fab in Arizona. (AnandTech)

    Planned to start construction next year and come online in 2024. By then 3nm will be in full production, but it's likely this factory can upgrade to 3nm (and 2nm) as needed.

  • ASRock has announced a server motherboard for the Xeon W-1200. (AnandTech)

    Not sure how popular it will be with its crazy power draw when ASRock is already shipping Ryzen server boards, but I'm sure someone will buy it.

  • Facebook is buying Giphy for $400 million. (Axios)

    It's a server with a bunch of images and a copy of Elasticsearch.

  • In a surprise move, all social networks have withdrawn business operations from France. (Tech Crunch)

    Of course the content is still available and now outside French control, so all France has done is lost is jobs and relevance.

  • This code does not do what you think. (Reddit)

    If you change two to read as follows:
    def three():
    numbers = range(6)
    for p in (2, 3):
    numbers = [ i for i in numbers if i % p ]
    return numbers
    Then it does precisely what you would expect. And that's the formulation I always use, which is why I've never tripped over this one.

    Explanation here.

Disclaimer: Not that they had a whole lot of either to begin with.

Eek.  Sometime this morning a formatting issue occurred, and the right-hand column is in the middle of the page instead of where it belongs.

2 Same here: no line wrap either in Firefox (68.8 I think).  But all is well in chromium.

3 It would be the ultimate 'eff U' to the PRC and, demonstrating support to Taiwan if the Defense Department decided that TSMC belong on its' prefer suppliers list.

4 I've seen it in FF and Edge.

5 I'll poke Firefox today and see what's up.  I'm still using Chrome most out the time, out of habit.

6 Issue looks like an HTML generation error. Sidebar issue seems to be that is it now the child of div#main rather than div#contents. Down-page formatting problems seem to be caused by missing div.content wrappers after the first post.

7 Thanks.  Of course, it's not supposed to do that.

8 Page formatting fixed.  You can mess yourself up mixing BBCode block tags with the HTML generated by the editor.

For comments the software forcibly balances the tags, it currently doesn't for posts.

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