Unavailable Unavailables Edition

Top Story

  • So I've been working crazy hours recently - and less recently, this has been going on since February - but it's paying off.  Not only did they give me a raise, and even backdate it, they've offered me a second raise starting next month.

    And now that things are slightly less insane and I have some money to spend, it turns out that everything I want to buy, from gluten-free chicken nuggets to a second one of those Dell laptops, is now out of stock.  

    Fortunately, given the looming nugget famine, I can actually cook.  I just tend not to.

  • Turns out I can order a Lenovo Tab M8 FHD from Amazon US.  I can't order it from Amazon US via Amazon AU, though, because...  Yeah, I got nothing.

  • GM can't get its nuggies either it seems, and is temporarily shutting down all but four of its US factories.  (Engadget)

    Nuggies make the world go 'round.

  • Yes, we need to nuke South Australia.  Again.  As with the burning of Washington, the British had the right idea but no follow-through.

2 In fairness, if you don't run untrusted code you don't have to worry about any of the speculative execution sidechannel attacks.

3 I, for one, reject the notion that Christmas Island was really a good start.

The nuggiepocalypse is transoceanic. I have one bag I keep in the freezer in case of nephew, but that's it. I must resort to the non-processed flesh of chicken birds rather than the farm raised and bleached Dittos that I used to be able to acquire.

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