Cannot Read Property PartNumber Of Undefined Edition

Tech News

  • Australia had only four new cases of Wuhan Bat Soup Death Plague overnight.  Yeah, not deaths, cases.  And testing is fairly widespread now.

    Things are so good that Coles has reopened home delivery.  (ZDNet)

    Shame that their website WON'T ACTUALLY LET YOU CHECK OUT.

    (Despite what the article says, Woolworths has been taking home deliveries throughout the plague.  They have added third-party deliveries as an option though.)


  • Need a 32-core Arm development system?  (AnandTech)

    Me neither.  When I saw the headline I was hoping for for a look at those new 80 core parts that can actually compete on some tasks with a 64 core Epyc, but this is the previous generation.


  • Razer has two new 13" Blade Stealth models.  (AnandTech)

    They couple the Intel Core i7-1065G7 - a 25W 4-core part - with an Nvidia GTX 1650 in a sleek case with a 60Hz 4K or 120Hz 1080p display and no dedicated PgUp/PgDn/Home/End keys.

    No, I don't know why either.


  • Gigabyte's Z490 motherboards are ready for PCIe 4.0.  (Tom's Hardware)

    Shame about Intel.  They'll get around to that eventually.  Maybe next year.


  • Everything not mandatory is forbidden.  Everything not forbidden is mandatory.

    Except for things that are both.  (TechDirt)

    New York, New York, it's a wonderful town.  The mayor is a commie and the governor's a clown.


  • Things Jaana wishes developers knew about databases.  (Medium)

    With many developers I'd settle for You can't get something out of the database unless you put it in there first.

    Oh, and Don't use a search query when you know the primary key.


  • Stripe is watching everything you do.  (MTLynch.io)

    The recommended procedure for using Stripe is to include their JavaScript on every page in your site, even ones that don't have anything to do with payment processing.

    This is of course retarded.

    The reason for this is apparently that it makes CAPTCHAs less necessary and more reliable.

    This is of course retarded.

    If you follow this recommendation, Stripe tracks everything every visitor to your site does.

    This is, of course, retarded.


Disclaimer: The Invisible Enemy was the first Doctor Who story to feature K9.  (The last - or at least most recent - was School Reunion.)

1 "Everything not mandatory is forbidden. "

The good news, I guess, is that since the governor is a Democrat, if he issues an EO suspending the older law, the media won't put out headlines saying "Governor suspends anti-KKK law" like they did with Georgia. (I heard the TV station got suspended for refusing to delete the tweet.)

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