  • If you absolutely need an RTX 3090 Ti This is your lucky day. (Tom's Hardware)

    EVGA has slashed the prices on two models by close to 50% to a merely exorbitant $1149 and $1199.

    This sort of price cut does suggest the RTX 4000 cards are (a) close and (b) a significant upgrade over the current lineup - enough that existing inventory will be dead weight once the new cards ship.

  • The best thing we can do with JavaScript is retire it. (Dev Class)

    Well, the second best thing we can do with JavaScript is retire it. The best thing is to take it out the barn and kill it with an axe. And a chainsaw. And ten gallons of kerosene and a box of matches.

    What the person saying this - Douglas Crockford, inventor of JSON - wants to replace the world's most popular programming language with is E:
    The E language provides a convenient and familiar notation for the ELib computational model, so you can program in one model rather than two. Under the covers, this notation expands into Kernel-E, a minimalist lambda-language much like Scheme or Smalltalk.
    Objects written in the E language are only able to interact with other objects according to ELib's semantics, enabling object granularity intra-process security, including the ability to safely run untrusted mobile code (such as caplets).
    Yeah, I suspect you may have your work cut out there.


  • Do not disturb is no longer enough. (The Register)

    We need a STFU mode for computers and mobile devices.


  • Build your own Windows tablet. (Instructables)

    A large, heavy, power-hungry Windows tablet, based on laptop gizzards, but still.
