  • Found a six-acre plot of land neatly in my price range, on the edge of town, with power, water, and internet available.  Bit of a walk to the shops but since I have my weekly groceries delivered that's not a huge issue.


  • Aaaand my internet just went down again.


  • UCIe is PCIe for chips.  (AnandTech)

    AMD has used its own Infinity Fabric for its chiplet-based designs since 2017, while Intel has used, um, whatever it has used.

    UCIe is a shared specification developed by Intel, AMD, Arm, Qualcomm, Samsung, and TSMC (among others) so that chips designed to the spec can easily be plugged together and might even work.

    Speeds go up to 256GBps, which is a lot.

1 "Bit of a walk to the shops"
I live on an island, a few miles from the city per se.  There are quite a few people who own small vehicles to make trips that don't need a lot of cargo capacity:  I've seen a lot of bikes, both electric and manual, as well as several people on trikes with a bin on the back, as well as ride share-style scooters.  There's even a couple of people who ride onewheels.
Electric golf carts are also very popular and even street-legal with some restrictions.
Hilliness of the terrain can cause issues, of course, although my experience with Bird scooters says they can go up small slopes decently well.

3 It's longer than a trip down the road to the chemist, if that's what you mean.

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