Missed It By That Much Edition

Tech News

  • Wuhan increased its bat soup death toll by 50%.  (New York Times)

    And that's their final offer.


  • Western Digital isn't the only one with the shingles.  (Tom's Hardware)

    Turns out everyone's doing it.  Literally everyone who still makes hard drives, which means Seagate and Toshiba.


  • Building your own ZFS-based NAS.  (Serve the Home)

    In case you don't have Synology units landing randomly on your doorstep.


  • Apple's HomePod is still widely misunderstood.  (9to5Mac)

    Clearly it's a pod that contains a home.

    [At this juncture your intrepid reporter attempted to find a clip of Bulma using her pods and instead discovered that YouTube is full of horrible perverts.]




  • Woolworths promises I'll get my lamingtons today.  What else did I order?  Hmm.  Brioche, carrot cake, peanut butter, iced tea, chicken tenders, Pepsi Max, vanilla and pomegranate cleaning spray....  Sounds like a party.

    Update: And they forgot all the frozen items.


Disclaimer: It works better once you remember that the show called them capsules.

1 I was just reading about another homebuilt ZFS NAS the other day: https://vermaden.wordpress.com/2019/06/19/freebsd-enterprise-1-pb-storage/
The price difference is substantial, but then so is the amount of storage.

2 That's quite a lot of disks.

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