Belladonna 3X Edition

Tech News

  • Password-free and exposed to the internet is no way to go through life.  (Tech Crunch)

    I'm guessing MongoDB.  Even 4.2 doesn't force you to create a default database, though it does complain at you if you don't.

  • Only two things are certain: Taxes and journalists promoting censorship.  (Tech Crunch)

    Here Susan Wojcicki, YouTube's CEO, comes across as a rational, honest, non-partisan defender of free speech, which she is not - at least, not in Sane World.  But in contrast with Clown World denizens like 60 Minutes' Leslie Stahl and Tech Crunch's Connie Loizos, she is Thomas Jefferson's ancap younger sister.

  • The 3950X is sold out.  (WCCFTech)

    I think what AMD needs to do is offer a 3950 non-X with lower clocks at, say, $650.  They seem to have enough dies, because the 3700X is readily available, just not enough of the top-binned dies they want for the 3900X and 3950X.

  • Django 3.0 is out.

    Django is a very popular Python web framework - the Python equivalent of Ruby on Rails.

    Noteworthy in this release is that it not only doesn't support Python 2.7, it doesn't support Python 3.0 through 3.5 either.  3.6 and up - and PyPy is only up to 3.6.

    I should take a look, at least, though I'm not sure it has any advantages for what I'm doing.  I want a pared-down system that does exactly and only what I need, and I'm happy enough writing SQL queries manually.

  • The problem with Google.  (ZDNet)

    The problem with Google - one of the problems, for there are many - is that they keep killing products that people depend on.  At least if you buy an overpriced WiFi router you can replace it with something cheaper that works just as well and doesn't fucking spy on you deliberately.  (Only accidentally.)

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