  • 1TBVPS.com actually also sells 2TB VPSes.  (1TBVPS.com)

    They don't both to draw attention to the fact though.


  • So, yeah, Twitter had a bad day.  (Ars Technica)

    It appears that the hackers either had inside help or Twitter are even more incompetent than you'd expect, because they had access to Twitter's internal account admin systems.

    Screenshots of those admin systems have been floating about on Twitter and elsewhere.  Which screenshots, people are noting, show the shadowban status of accounts.

    Wich @Jack swore before Congress that Twitter doesn't do.


  • Lenovo has announced more AMD systems, both laptops and desktops.  (Tom's Hardware)

    They look reasonable except for some of the configuration restrictions.  Why on Earth would you only offer up to 2TB disk drives?  They do that in the P620 workstation too - most powerful CPU in existence, maximum drive size only 4TB.


  • What's coming with Zen 3:

    10-15% better IPC, 5% better clock speeds, 8 cores per cluster, and...  DDR5?  Maybe.



    It will be launching this year, that much has been announced publicly.

1 Neither the article at Arse nor the first three pages of comments contain the words "shadowban" or "blacklist".  Quelle surprise.

2 Lenovo:  odd, but maybe not unreasonable?  My work PC doesn't need more than 2-300GB of disk, and, honestly, I could get by with less if I weren't running an ERP for compatibility testing.

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