Daily Tech News 3 February 2022

  • So I thought I'd take a look at Phoenix NAP, the company reviewed the other day by Serve the Home. They offer dedicated servers with the convenience of the cloud, and sane terms of service which amount to "Pay your bills on time, no spam, nothing illegal, no, seriously, no spam."

    There's a particular model they offer that would suit us well, based on Intel's new Xeon E3-2356G (equivalent to a desktop i5-11600K). 64GB RAM, 1TB NVMe storage, and 20Gbps networking for $113 per month. That's a very fast network connection for that price. With the default operating system you can have one deployed in under a minute, or ten minutes for a custom installation. Perfect for deploying a cluster because you have lightning fast networking and complete control via the dashboard for when you screw up the firewall and/or routing settings and lose SSH access.

    Except... They don't have any.

  • The Wormhole cross-blockchain platform, supporting Avalanche, Oasis, Binance, Ethereum, Polygon, Solana, and Terra... Got hacked. (Bleeping Computer)

    120,000 ETH, worth about $326 million, walked out the door. In case you thought you were having a bad day.

Interesting backstory to this one, but there's not enough room in this margin to tell it.

Disclaimer: Well, get bigger margins then.
