The Atlantic Can Die in a Fire News

These people are insane.

  • Democrats can't help solve problems because that might get Trump re-elected.



  • It's Trump's fault that Democrats are insane.



  • The solution for daily press briefings: Alcoholism.



  • Optimism is bad.



  • Some animals are more equal than others.  Here's why that's a good thing, and how to do more of that.  Also, the viewscreen was behind the painting.

Lexx Video of the Day

This piece - I think it's titled Escape, and first plays when our, um, heroes, escape with the Lexx - starts out unassuming, but having seen the series this ranks right up there with Heroic Action Please from Slayers as signifying that the bad guys are about to get blown up real good.



In the case of Lexx, the bad guys, their entire planet, the rest of the solar system, and sometimes one or two of the nearby stars as well.

Cannot Read Property PartNumber Of Undefined Edition

Tech News

  • Australia had only four new cases of Wuhan Bat Soup Death Plague overnight.  Yeah, not deaths, cases.  And testing is fairly widespread now.

    Things are so good that Coles has reopened home delivery.  (ZDNet)

    Shame that their website WON'T ACTUALLY LET YOU CHECK OUT.

    (Despite what the article says, Woolworths has been taking home deliveries throughout the plague.  They have added third-party deliveries as an option though.)


  • Need a 32-core Arm development system?  (AnandTech)

    Me neither.  When I saw the headline I was hoping for for a look at those new 80 core parts that can actually compete on some tasks with a 64 core Epyc, but this is the previous generation.


  • Razer has two new 13" Blade Stealth models.  (AnandTech)

    They couple the Intel Core i7-1065G7 - a 25W 4-core part - with an Nvidia GTX 1650 in a sleek case with a 60Hz 4K or 120Hz 1080p display and no dedicated PgUp/PgDn/Home/End keys.

    No, I don't know why either.


  • Gigabyte's Z490 motherboards are ready for PCIe 4.0.  (Tom's Hardware)

    Shame about Intel.  They'll get around to that eventually.  Maybe next year.


  • Everything not mandatory is forbidden.  Everything not forbidden is mandatory.

    Except for things that are both.  (TechDirt)

    New York, New York, it's a wonderful town.  The mayor is a commie and the governor's a clown.


  • Things Jaana wishes developers knew about databases.  (Medium)

    With many developers I'd settle for You can't get something out of the database unless you put it in there first.

    Oh, and Don't use a search query when you know the primary key.


  • Stripe is watching everything you do.  (MTLynch.io)

    The recommended procedure for using Stripe is to include their JavaScript on every page in your site, even ones that don't have anything to do with payment processing.

    This is of course retarded.

    The reason for this is apparently that it makes CAPTCHAs less necessary and more reliable.

    This is of course retarded.

    If you follow this recommendation, Stripe tracks everything every visitor to your site does.

    This is, of course, retarded.
