It's A Problem Problem Edition
- The Asus Pro WS WRX80E-SAGE SE WiFi does have a chipset fan after all. (AnandTech)
I couldn't spot it under the 1.5kg heatsink.
This is not a review since they don't yet have a Threadripper Pro processor to go along with the Threadripper Pro motherboard, but they do have their hands on the board.
- A look at the Intel DG1. (Igor's Lab)
TL;DR: It doesn't work. This is purely an OEM part; it doesn't even have firmware on the board. Without a custom BIOS it's a paperweight.
- A not-insane technology stack. (Simplecto)
Docker, Traefik (I use Caddy but Traefik looks good too), PostgreSQL, Django, and Intercooler / HTMX on the client.
HTMX actually looks pretty nice. It's just 9k of code and lets you make any HTML object server-interactive with just an added attribute. No need to build your entire app around any given framework; if you have one field that needs this, apply it to that one field.
- Microsoft has a new idea: A Turing-complete programming language. (Visual Studio Magazine)
Specifically, though, the formula language for Excel is now Turing-complete. Slashdot (not being what it once was) reported this as Excel itself being Turing-complete, which has been the case for... Ever, I think.
Revised and Updated Video of the Day
Basically, the story is that Robinhood prevented its users from buying GameStop shares because they didn't have enough cash on hand for collateral at their clearing house after said clearing house increased the collateral requirements from 3% to 100%. But they couldn't say they didn't have enough cash on hand because then people would assume they were undercapitalised... Which they are. So they lied.

It's better for everyone to say up-front that it doesn't work as an add-on to existing systems than to have everyone scrambling to fix a half-working card.
Since it's the same graphics core as on the 11th gen laptop chips it obviously is functional hardware, at least.
