Thank You For Solving A Problem We No Longer Have Edition
- Got Threadripper servers #2 and #3 deployed today. Working names are Alvin, Simon, and Theodore.
This weekend will be a clusterfest - LXD, GlusterFS, Percona XtraDB, MongoDB, Redis, Elasticsearch, RabbitMQ. Plus a new Ethereum node, PostgreSQL, GitLab, Traefik, and Minio.
- Also got a delivery slot before the toilet paper went out stock again. It's for Sunday, which is sooner than I need, but I'll take it. (Some other items went out of stock while I was clicking refresh, including the very nice gluten free brioche, but I'll live.)
- You are seeking a technological solution to a social problem. (TechDirt)
- Yeah, great, private Facebook groups are noted for their strict HIPAA compliance. (TechDirt)
- Australia's NBN is looking at millimetre wavelengths for fixed wireless internet. (ZDNet)
This range - from around 25 to 30 GHz - is unattractive to for mobile phones but offers a lot of potential for things that don't move around quite so much. If all the bandwidth is allocated for a given area, aggregate transfer speeds would exceed 100Gbps. This makes it far superior to satellite for providing broadband internet to the home in semi-rural areas.
- Google has made Stadia free for the next two months. (Thurrott.com)
This will delay Stadia's inevitable demise by at least a week.
- Windows file explorer is getting WSL integration. (The Verge)
Good. When I need that I tend to create folders the Windows side recognises and then symlink them into the WSL environment. That works seamlessly. The other direction.... Not so much.
Video of the Day
My suspension is weird. I can't tweet, retweet, or like, or follow people. I can DM, unfollow, block, and vote on polls. I can't edit my profile. I can't create lists or add people to them, but I can remove people from them.
