Top Story

  • Who is truly responsible for the $110 million loss at decentralised finance (DeFi) platform Mango Markets? Arguably, everyone except the guy who caused it. (Milky Eggs)

    The attack, such as it was, was basically just everyday arbitrage. The problem was more than Mango Markets is an unlicensed and untested securities exchange that could be wiped out by things that happen in the normal course of market transactions, because it is built and run by idiots.

    Or not necessarily idiots, because it's not the people running Mango Markets who lost money.


  • After a five-day tour of the New South Wales countryside, my Amazon shipment arrived. I'll unpack it at some point; my new tablet is in there.

    Also, it's listed on Amazon as having being delivered tomorrow, which is just slightly odd.


Tech News

  • A dumb article on a dumb problem. (Substack)

    Don't read that unless you want to be enraged by idiots building idiotic applications on top of idiotic frameworks built by other idiots.


  • A smart article on the same dumb problem. (Luke Plant)

    Money quote:
    Are the Etsy devs stupid? I suspect not. Etsy is clearly doing well, and I imagine they have enough money to hire top-notch developers. Some of their careers pages show they are happy using a variety of languages and technologies, and their engineering blog seems to be sane and competent. Even their security presentation showed considerable ingenuity and technical ability in dealing with security problems (in entirely the wrong way, unfortunately, but still impressive).
    I doubt they are low quality developers. Rather, I suspect that use of PHP has addled their brains. They have become far too accustomed to working in an environment in which insanity reigns...
    One bad decision made to get a product out the door can lead to years of mental - and financial - bleeding.


  • Why are rents going up? An app named YieldStar. (Pro Publica)

    It turns out if you increase your rents faster than the overall market, you make more money. Right up until it turns out that all your properties are mysteriously sitting vacant.


  • Intel's other 4-bit CPU. (Substack)

    There was the original 4004, built for desktop calculators, and the subsequent 4040, before Intel moved on to 8-bit chips and never looked back.

    But there was also the 4005. You wouldn't know it, it lived in Canada.

1 That comment on the Mango Markets article is priceless:

"This may seem idiotic but in fact it requires a high degree of intelligence to convince oneself of something that is so clearly false."

14 You don't have to stay in a flophouse or hostel to encounter bed bugs. Bed bugs are just as prevalent in luxury hotels and respected national chains. "Just because a motel (appears) clean and is expensive ... it does not mean that they don't have bedbugs," Derrick Bender, a faculty assistant at the University of Maryland's Cumberland Extension Office, told the Cumberland Times-News. While staying at an upscale $300-a-night Annapolis hotel this summer, Bender and his wife were attacked by bed bugs.how do you get bed bugs
