Daily Tech News 28 July 2021

Top Stories

  • At my day job, the first of our big product launches for the quarter went live at 1AM - the joys of living in Australia but having customers all over the world.

    The phone didn't ring.

    I went to be fully expected to get maybe two hours sleep, but I slept right through until 7AM when the dickhead next door with the detuned sports car who is probably breaking several emissions laws leaves for work. Even in lockdown.

    Anyway, the site did not melt down in the face of a massive marketing campaign, though we did shake loose a couple of bugs and a slow query on a secondary database.

  • Thought I was going to get away with just a ten-hour day today, but no.

  • Having ruined everything else, the commies are coming for gaming PCs. (Hot Hardware)

    If you live in a third-world shithole like California, Colorado, Hawaii, Oregon, Vermont, or Washington, you are no longer permitted - get that, permitted - to buy a high-end gaming system. Because fuck you, that's why.

  • Closer to home:

    Go jump in a volcano you fascist fucks.

    Yeah, this is one of those bullshit proposals that pops up all the time, with slim to no chance of ever making it to a bill, much less becoming the law, but still, volcano.
