  • Another comparison of Intel's i7 12700K to the Ryzen 5800X and 5900X. (Tom's Hardware)

    To cut the story short - though it's worth reading if you want to buy a new computer with a specific purpose in mind:

    • The 12700K is very good, and avoids most of the excesses of the 12900K. For most tasks it's nearly as fast and significantly cheaper
    • AMD's chips are much more power-efficient, and it really looks like their multi-threaded performance is constrained more by power limits than the chip's capabilities.
    • There's little reason right now to bother with DDR5 at all, which is good because there isn't any.

  • The full list of non-K - mainstream non-overclockable - Alder Lake CPUs has been assembled thanks to multiple leaks by online stores around the world. (WCCFTech)

    And if online stores in Bangladesh have the details, everyone does.

    Except for the 12700 and the low-power 12700T, none of these have the new Efficiency cores, just the full-size Power cores. Which means that there's really only two new configurations: Four cores / eight threads on the 12100, 12200 (if that exists - I suspect it's a typo), and 12300; and six cores / twelve threads on the 12400, 12500, and 12600.

    For the average user even the low-end 12100 should be a very capable CPU.


  • Pop psychology has killed the villain. (UnHerd)

    Kills and skins puppies just to make a stylin' new coat? That's because she was traumatised by a TV commercial as a child.

    Villains in stories are villains for the same reason that 1+1=2 in arithmetic: Because it works. You can construct a system of arithmetic where 1+1=3, but it's pointless to do so because it doesn't relate to reality.

    Quite a good examination of trends in entertainment generally, pointing out that competent directors were aware of this danger and warned against it decades ago.


  • GitHub went down again. (Hacker News)

    As in: Ted was planning to spend the entire afternoon wanking in his cubicle, but GitHub was down so he had to actually do some work.


  • We're doomed.



  • Smoking a turkey with Prometheus, Home Assistant, and Grafana. (BlockLoop)

    And a smoker.


  • Python library of the day is Bokeh. (Bokeh.org)

    This is a data visualisation library that lets you construct your graphs and charts - and entire interactive dashboards - in Python and display them as a web page, or a component within a web page.

    You don't need to do any direct JavaScript nonsense yourself, and it can produce some pretty sophisticated data plots.


In Which the New York Times Almost Wakes Up From Its Nap Video of the Day



I had Viva Frei playing on the second monitor while I ate lunch and skimmed the news for this roundup, so when that video ended and YouTube cued up another I didn't have many hands free to stop it and just let it play.

After I minute I looked over to see which conservative or libertarian-leaning channel I had landed on, and was bemused to find that it was the New York Times.


Party Like It's 1979 Video of the Day



There's clearer videos of this one in English, but it sounds better in the original Klingon, so that's what I went with. Well, there's a 2019 performance which I think has one of the original band members, but that doesn't count.

This is one of the first I thought of when I started rounding up 70s songs as a commentary on the world's present economic and sociopolitical woes, and one of the things I immediately thought is that it would make a great mashup with Boney M's Rasputin.

Apparently it doesn't - Moskau has variable tempo, not a lot but enough to wreck the sync with any other song. You can adjust the tempo of one song in a mashup as long as it remains consistent, like this:



But adjusting it from one verse is to the next is not only a whole lot of work, it changes the feel of the song and ruins the mashup.

"NSW Health said the pair were asymptomatic and both fully vaccinated."

Hmmmm. Suppose they'll keep us updated as to their condition? I'm guessing... only if they get sick. And then we'll hear all about how they were not up-to-date on boosters OR spend time around the (horrors!) unvaxxed.

Yes, Moronic was first discovered, in South Africa, in fully vexxed individuals. (Makes sense, of course, as the vexxing is the selection filter.

Of course, the docs there are somewhat confused about the whole freak-out, as the Moronic patients they encountered had mild symptoms.

He's the only half-way decent state leader in Australia right now, and I'm thankful he's running the government here in NSW.

If he sticks to his guns on removing almost all restrictions on the 15th, I might even vote for him next time.

Posted by: Pixy Misa at November 28, 2021 03:29 AM (MqQvv)

30 I should add that Perrottet didn't impose those restrictions; the first thing he did when he took office was set a timetable for dismantling them.

(It wasn't an election; our previous premier resigned during a corruption investigation. Far worse things are coming out about the Victorian state government, but they're all commies and you have to remove them from office with a crowbar.)

Just saw a prediction. Soon, they will declare that all vexxed individuals, whether boostered or not, are not unvexxed.

Pharma will go on crash program to come up with a vexxine to target the highly mutated Moronic spike.

53 While i tend to want to blame writers having little creativity, or studios wanting easy money, as the reason for so many backstory movies, the answer probably is a more simple "the general public is dumb." With so many IP movies you can play it easy, and milk nostalgia and put trash out there because so many fans don't care, they'll watch anything.

Hopefully people enjoying new stuff, like Squid Game or Queens Gambit, etc, and realizing many remakes/prequels are pure shit *cough* Cowboy Bebop *cough* will finally destroy this trend of everything having to be Marvel/DC/Star Wars shit.

Also I think it's very sweet of this new covid variant to drop just in time to make sure the opening of Epsteins Black Book in court on Monday doesn't make the news.

Next June it'll be the "Tree Fiddy Tree" store

86 I pretty much wrote Rust off (to the extent I'd ever taken it seriously, which was not much) when communist thug Steve Klabnik wormed his way in to the team.

I've been around long enough to see Klabnik help fly several projects into the ground, many of which had much more promise than Rust.

87 77 One of the people at the party also suggested that the reason the unvaxxed are complaining about the lockdowns and masks and jabs is because they never faced hard times like our parents did.

Huh?

No spittle, but there were others that were confused on what she said.

91 I like how the NYT soiboi glides past the elimination of single family housing in California as a "step in the right direction".

He's missed the meaning of his entire presentation.

92 stop at the Dollar and a Quarter Tree for a few things

The ones around here haven't gotten to that yet. Dollar General and Family Dollar have never been all that inexpensive despite their names. DT has been my go-to for years, despite the trashiness of the clientele, at least in my area. The one I shopped at in the Birmingham suburbs was very nice by comparison (but then, a lot of places would be nice by comparison to what I see every day here).

Hey, no problem losing our fortunes under the current administration... we don't even have to lift a finger.

Maybe if our lives had been harder we would appreciate a good lockdown, lack of goods, and a forced medical procedure?

96 Wolfus, there are floods in Australia (comment #14, above), of such sort as might be familiar to you.

97 There's a "Five Below" store in my area that I've never shopped at. Its concept is, everything in the store is $4.99 (before tax) or less. But I think it's mostly gimcrackery, decorations, toys, etc. -- no cheap snacks or cleaning products like Dollar Tree.

I fled before the flooding of Hurricane Katrina and was gone until well after the waters receded. The worst I've experienced in recent years was the one that trashed my BMW in summer '19.

106 Henceforth I shall refer to the filing of worthless pull requests as wanking - jerking off to my American friends - as in: Ted spent the entire afternoon wanking in his cubicle.

This American developer has been using that terminology for years.

107 Rust wrecked itself? How un-surprising

Posted by: Draki at November 28, 2021 09:03 AM (op5te)

108 I've avoided Rust since I read their onboarding materials and discovered that their example programs are described as having been specifically crafted to be gender-and-race neutral. Apple, Google, Amazon, and MS enforce Codes of Communism on their stuff too, but they haven't gotten *that* stupid.

110 Love how, once again, the liberal rank-and-file walk right up to the truth - that Democrats only care about gaining and keeping power - and then somehow not manage to see it.

Posted by: Viridian at November 28, 2021 09:36 AM (C+Y+8)

111 I mean, none of the chucklefucks in that video are ever going to actually vote for a Republican so the fact that the acknowledge that the Democrats are hypocrites doesn't really matter, does it?
