Daily Tech News 21 June 2022

  • Step One: Protect your critical web sites and services by putting them behind a globally distributed, highly redundant, fault tolerant content distribution network.

    Step Two: You'll still go down but now you have someone to blame.



    This outage took out the sites we run at work, the sites I use to do my work, and about a quarter of the news sites I visit to compile this daily post.

    I'm not sure just how widespread the effects were, because one of the things that went down was Cloudflare's 1.1.1.1 DNS service. (The Verge)

    So anyone using that service - including automated monitoring services - would have seen the entire internet go dark.

    Downdetector shows Google, Amazon, Microsoft, and Twitter all affected, despite at least three of those companies running their own content distribution networks. But that might be in part because the monitoring systems went down.

  • Threadripper Pro 5000 chips are coming to retail. (Serve the Home)

    Prices start at around $2500 - there are cheaper models for OEMs but they're not going to be available in the retail market - and it should show up just in time to be eclipsed by the new 4th generation Epyc server CPUs.

    But if you want a workstation for CPU-based tasks - video production, for example, or engineering - Threadripper is still the best thing out there. Intel has some new high-end chips on the way but no launch dates or pricing as yet.


  • Or you could just not use it: Disabling notifications on Nextdoor takes 130 separate clicks. (Imgur)

    Not using it takes zero clicks. It's like a smile only better.


  • Those gluten-free donuts - these ones - are now available for online order; at first they were in-store only. They're actually cheaper imported to Australia, on the freezer shelf, with sales tax added, than listed on that website. Somehow. Got more coming Thursday.

    I can only get the simple glazed donuts locally, but that's okay, they would be my first choice anyway,


Disclaimer: Do or donut, there is no try.
