Daily News Stuff 19 October 2018

Tech News
  • Corsair has a new line of M.2 NVMe SSDs.  (AnandTech)

    Wait, didn't we do that yesterday?  Oh, that was Crucial?  Never mind.

    This one is TLC rather than QLC, so it's fine for most purposes.  And surprisingly, it stands up next to the best TLC drives on the market, like the Samsung 970 EVO.  The only thing consistently faster are Intel's Optane drives, which are far more expensive.

  • Samung's Galaxy Book2 is asecond generation Windows Arm laptop.  (AnandTech)

    While these have great battery life, performance on third-party apps is terrible due to the x86 emulation layer.

  • This article protesting the incoherence of the Many Worlds Interpretation is itself incoherent.  (Quanta)

    Must have been a slow news day.  Having run this daily update just for a few months, they have my sympathies.

  • PostgreSQL 11 is out.

    It doesn't look like a huge update, but PostgreSQL was pretty solid already.

Video of the Day

It's generally not a good sign when a review of your new product is subtitled "Buy this instead".

Post contains 178 words, total size 2 kb.

1 5 things:
1: Hyperlinks to posts don't seem to be working. see here: 2: The help E-mail  is bouncing back.
3:The comments on old posts are not showing up
Oddly, the comments on much older posts are.
Importance of this on my end is quite low, but knowing this might be of interest or utility to you. 
4:There's no picture of the day.
5: There no 5th thing either.

2 OK It turns out you cannot have periods in post titles.

Remove the periods from the PATH field under OPTIONS and hyperlinks work fine.
Sorry to trouble you with a PEBKAC issue.

3 That should work.  Odd.

I will poke at the other items.

4 Hey Pixy?  I've noticed that I'm missing a whole passelful of comments from earlier in 2018 and maybe 2017 as well.  The post will show (7 comments), but displays nothing when you click to see them.

5 For example, February 2018.

6 Yeah, something is not right with the data.  Seeing what I can do...

7 Looks like about 60,000 comments got spam-binned.  I'm pulling them back out now, but some actual spam might come along too.

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