Locked Down And On Fire Edition

Tech News

  • Perth is having a bad week.  (Phys.org)

    Having to evacuate from a bushfire during a WBSDP lockdown can't be fun.  Here in Sydney the fires had the decency to stop right when the plague kicked in, and it's been soggy here ever since with the switch to a La Nina cycle.

    I went out to the shops this evening for the first time in a few weeks, having managed to essentially avoid the entire lockdown.


  • Epyc Milan specs and prices have leaked.  (Tom's Hardware)

    Though these are Dell's prices, not AMD's, so the small price increases may or may not reflect the MSRP.


  • Alder Lake-P is on its way with 14 cores and 20 threads unless it's not.  (WCCFTech)

    That weird config is six big cores and eight little cores; the six big core are hyperthreaded, while the little ones are not.


  • Scaleway has MacMini M&Ms.  (Hacker News)

    Or something like that.  At 1/8th the price of Amazon.  People in the thread don't seem to be overly fond of Scaleway as a hosting provider though.

    The price of $85 per month would have you paying for the basic Mac Mini M1 every eight months, which is about average for new hardware at a pay-by-the-month provider.

    Also, Apples home page punches you right in the face with their virtue signalling.


  • Want to build a little custom router thingy?  The ODROID-H2+ may be what you need.  (Serve the Home)

    For $119 it comes with an Atom-based Celeron J4115, dual 2.5GbE ports, one M.2 slot, two SO-DIMM slots supporting 8GB officially and 32GB in reality, HDMI, DisplayPort, two USB 3, two USB 2, three audio jacks, and two SATA ports.

    The optional $47 H2 Net Card option adds four more 2.5GbE ports and makes it into a pretty solid little home network appliance.

    Seems to lack WiFi though.

Which reminds me that I still haven't watched a stream of two thirds of the Hololive girls, after seven or eight months down the rabbit hole.

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