  • An early benchmark of Intel's unannounced 13900KS suggests that it may be very fast and also burn your house down. (Tom's Hardware)

    This is the model that will hit 6GHz, and it will also use 350W. Which is a lot.


  • Amazon's new Kindle Scribe has a pen. (Liliputing)

    It's still an e-ink display (and still has amazing battery life), but now you can take notes on it. And it's the first new large-format Kindle in years, with a 10.2" screen.

    Given the ongoing existence failure of good small Android tablets, I'll probably be buying a Kindle for reading. The other option is the iPad Mini, which... No.


  • The Epic of Gilgamesh is not the oldest surviving work of literature, unless it is. (Tales of Times Forgotten)

    It depends on how you define "oldest", "surviving", and "literature".

    But pedantry aside, the article does provide a fascinating review of some other very, very old manuscripts.


  • Reasonably priced Socket AM5 motherboards are on the way. (WCCFTech)

    For the new Ryzen 7000 chips, the only motherboards available right now are the high-end X670 and X670E models, and none of them are what you would call cheap. Which is fine if you're building a high-end 7950X system and need 10Gb Ethernet, four USB-C ports, and five M.2 slots.

    If you were hoping to build an inexpensive gaming rig based around the new 7600X, though, you currently need to spend more on the motherboard than the CPU.

    The new boards, based on the B650 and B650E chipsets, will bring prices down to start at around $125.


  • 48GB DIMMs are here. (Serve the Home)

    One of the changes made with DDR5 was support for 24Gb memory chips, allowing for 24GB and 48GB memory modules. This was because 32Gb chips were not immediately within reach, and this half-step would provide a short term increase in memory capacities - for a laptop, up to 96GB, and for a desktop, up to 192GB.

    Only the modules being shown off here are registered DIMMs for servers, and you can already get 128GB registered DIMMs.



  • Scientists have created an AI-controlled laser turret that kills cockroaches. (Motherboard)

    I love it when a plan comes together.

Big black Stirling, a monster even now at 6.5 months, seems happy to be with me. The little Siberian, Dagny, is over at Miss Linda's. We have to keep them separated until his snip "takes" and he can no longer knock her up (though she is way too young for that). And the apt. management is still coming over at odd times to work on replacing my wet carpet, so it's best if neither cat is here during the day.

That's what I tell Stirling.

I have a sneaking admiration for him, though. He's snipped, and yet he still reacts strongly to the girl kitten. Precocious too -- in human terms, they are both only about 9 years old.

Thanks for your comments. All leaders (as all people do)have strong and weak points. As far as Trump and DeSantis , they seem to love "their" people and the areas they have been elected to serve. So many people called Trump a total narcissist. I don't think he was although all politicians are narcissistic. I think, unlike most politicians, he had a desire to serve rather than be served and I think DeSantis is the same.

89 mornin yall. It looks like the worst of the storm will go East of here. A county crew came by yesterday and waved a backhoe at the creek where it passes under the road, but removed no obstructions further upstream. I told them they needed to go further to clean out the debris, but they said they had to move on because they were getting ready for the storm. What they did though will not help drainage, they just wasted two hours loading and unloading the backhoe.

Last year the county imposed a $6 a month "Stormwater Management Fee" on everyone's water bill. In the 20 years we have been in this house, the only time that creek has been cleared is by me. Another consequence of the city and county merging, we pay more and don't get squit.

94 Have had a few chats with persons involved in cyberfun. Nothing of substance of course. In their unit regalia, "traditions," and monogrammed drinking accessories, squirrels figure prominently.

If you meet someone with a military squirrel patch, and they are running? Try to keep up.

And the price of gas and travel. I know it's our go to travel stop restaurant (although I'm not 65+), and if we aren't travelling, we never go b/c there isn't one in our neighborhood, and that's not the type of place you go out of your way for...which may really be the reason.

It's good, but not great...and it's nothing you can't make yourself. So, if money is an object, you quit going.

130 The town will be really buzzing starting today. The Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta starts tomorrow, it's the 50th anniversary. What will they do when propane is banned, can you run a balloon on a big battery powered blow drier? A lithium battery fire at 1000 ft would be less than optimal I would think.

138 The restaurant business in my area is in dire straits. Before Covid, IMO, there were too many chains concentrated in commercial districts competing for business and help. Add in the single owner places and it was the perfect arrangement for a collapse when government shut everything down for Covid. Now with inflation and lack of help so many places have closed including chains.

140 Mrs fd has a craft show this weekend. She's been prepping for two months. It was supposed to be outside but now they are moving in inside to a smaller venue because of the storm.

She's worried that it will be disaster, and no one will show up. I told her that if she doesn't do the show, she will never know. Plus, she needs to sell some of this stuff that's all over the house. I hope it's not a wasted Saturday.

Yep. We don't look anywhere other than Hobby Lobby for any of our arts and crafts stuff. My oldest even pointed out that they are closed on Sunday and how refreshing that is. "They give their employees a day off just like Christmas Day, every week."

145 Researchers detail Chaos, a new cross-platform malware that infected a wide range of Linux and Windows devices, including routers, FreeBSD boxes, and servers

"The potency of the Chaos malware stems from a few factors," Black Lotus Labs researchers wrote in a Wednesday morning blog post. "First, it is designed to work across several architectures, including: ARM, Intel (i386), MIPS and PowerPC—in addition to both Windows and Linux operating systems. Second, unlike largescale ransomware distribution botnets like Emotet that leverage spam to spread and grow, Chaos propagates through known CVEs and brute forced as well as stolen SSH keys."
