No News Is No News Edition
- Congress spent five hours asking stupid questions of Big Tech CEOs, and Big Tech CEOs spent five hours giving stupid answers. (Substack)
The sum total of human knowledge decreased on Thursday.
- Factorio as a tech interview. (Erik McClure)
On the one hand, it's a very good tool to gauge ability.
On the other hand, it takes about twenty hours.
- Which Epyc Milan CPU is right for you? (Serve the Home)
Probably not the 64 core models, unless you need maximum performance per server. If you're looking for something cost-effective, the 24 core single-socket 7443P costs only a little more than its predecessor, but offers 20% better IPC and 20% higher boost clocks.
If you want something slightly larger, two 28 core 7453 CPUs cost about the same as one 32 core 7513. The 7453 is aimed directly at Intel's Xeon 6258R (also 28 cores), which is a half-price version of the 8280, but the Epyc part is 60% cheaper even than that.
Still waiting for my dual Epyc Rome system to complete setup.
- I found a diamond in Minecraft. Never played enough to get one before. Would download the trial, die a lot, and give up.
Also, I have yet to even see a sheep, so nights are a bit of a problem.
Four string in a square will create a wool block.

Okay, I'm good then, because I've killed no end of spooders.

Also dug my subway entrance and fenced off an area to keep my animals safe. Currently have a grand total of one pig in there - I was doing this last night while rebuilding a server for work, and that's where I was up to when the server work was done.
