  • Dear Microsoft,

    It's not fucking up to you how many fucking times I pause your fucking updates. Unlike you retards, I have a fucking job to do, so kindly take your updates, cover them in glitter glue, and shove them so far up your ass that you see stars when you close your eyes.




  • Arm has announced three new Arm cores. (AnandTech)

    Which is kind of a logical thing for Arm to announce, and a logical thing to be announced by Arm.

    Anyway, specifically we have the X2, following the high-performance X1, the A710, following the formerly high-performance A78, and the A510, following the power-efficient A55.

    All three support the new Armv9 instruction set, and the X2 and A510 are 64-bit only designs. As a developer I'm generally against ripping out backwards-compatibility like that, but on the other hand the x86 architecture has maintained binary compatibility since 1978 and as a result is now insane.

    Anyway, the X2 is 16% faster than the X1, assuming the same manufacturing process and power consumption. The A710 - no longer being the top performing core - delivers the same performance as the A78 but uses 30% less power. And the A510 is 25% slower than the A73, which was Arm's high-end core in 2017 - and what powers my "new" phone.

    Not an astounding upgrade but still pretty solid.

Anime of the day is Log Horizon from 2013. This is what is known as an isekai story - literally another world - and those have become something of a blight on anime and manga in recent years. But this is one of the better ones.

The plot is that everyone playing the latest update of a particular online game gets dumped into that world for real. Like... A hundred thousand people, all at once.

The difference between Log Horizon and most other isekais is that it actually examines what would happen if you took a small city's worth of people from our world and dumped them in a fantasy realm that they are used to treating as a game. And the results aren't always pretty.
