Box Crash Edition

Tech News

  • Short one today because my hovercraft is full of boxes.

    Which all just fell over.  Yay.

  • When even Vox thinks your project is a scam.  (Vox)

    Serial entrepreneurn't Adam Neumann, formerly of collapsed "tech" startup WeWork, is back with a new project to distribute carbon credits on the blockchain, as the - I swear I am not making this up- Goddess Nature Token.

    Vox - Vox - refers to this as "a scam within a scam".

  • The high-end models of the upcoming Ryzen 7000 will indeed have a TDP of 170W.  (Tom's Hardware)

    There was some confusion over whether the number was constant power or peak power, and AMD has now clarified that it is indeed constant power, with a peak of 230W.

    This is actually good because the current 16 core parts are clearly constrained by something - either power or memory bandwidth - and the new parts will resolve both limits.

  • Broadcom is buying VMware for $61 billion.  (Tech Crunch)

    Previously EMC bought VMWare, and then Dell bought EMC, but more recently Dell spun VMWare off as a separate company.

  • Doing some maintenance on my Synology boxes before the move.  Across four 8-bay devices I found one failing drive, one failed drive, and one drive so dead that the NAS can't even detect it as failed.

    I had two replacement drives that were almost the same model from an old PC (these are second-hand units from work, dating to 2013).  The third one I had to replace a 3TB drive with a 6TB model because I didn't have anything small enough.

    Looks like RAID will finish rebuilding this time tomorrow on all three.

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