  • I think I've fixed the main page now. The template code somehow got mangled and was including multiple copies of posts and clogging up your browser, though the individual pages worked fine.

    I still get a warning from Safari about the page, but it certainly loads faster. I think Safari is just not a very good browser in general.

  • On the plus side, if you're on MacOS, Mozilla just fixed a 21 year old problem in Firefox. (Bugzilla)

    How easy/hard would this be?
    Well, I think that question got answered.

Anime of the day is The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, the show that catapulted Kyoto Animation to fame. There is only one correct way to watch this series, and that is the scrambled order it was originally broadcast in, with the original messed-up next episode trailers.

That was a a stroke of genius, I think, converting a conventionally oddball show into a meta-oddball show where you were kept waiting for resolutions to reverse-cliffhangers - sure, we know how she escaped, but what was she doing on that cliff in the first place?

There's a second TV season from 2009 which I quite liked but which divided the fanbase with the infamous adaption of the Endless Eight story from the original novels. And, as usual, also a movie (quite good) and a canonical alternate universe spinoff called The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan (surprisingly good).

  • AMD's Ryzen 5600H laptop part beats Intel's 11400H. (Tom's Hardware)

    By a tiny margin on single-threaded tasks, but a solid 28% on multi-threaded.

    The 5600H uses the latest Zen 3 cores, which is great but also really fucking annoying because the 5600U... No, wait, the 5600U is also Zen 3? So the 5700U and 5500U are Zen 2. I don't know, whatever. Chips is chips.

    These - the 5600H and 11400H - are 6-core parts for mid-range laptops, most likely to be found paired with something like an RTX 3060.

Just Two Ducks Dancing Video of the Day

I don't like the song that much but the animation is great.

This - both of them - is Subaru from Hololive. If Pekora is Hololive's Bugs Bunny, Subaru is their Daffy Duck.

She has a an animation of her dancing with her duck alter ego in her end credits, and it's gone viral... The duck, that is.

Disclaimer: And sometimes a duck is just a duck. I mean, in this case it's a YouTuber with 900,000 subscribers, but sometimes...
