  • How Cloudflare got KiwiFarms wrong. (The Verge)

    Cloudflare got KiwiFarms wrong by caving to the fascist mob, but since The Verge is a card-carrying flag-waving member of that mob, this article is complaining that Cloudflare didn't cave sooner.

    The excuse given is "stochastic terrorism", a term that means someone somewhere said something I don't like.

  • The GPD Win 4 is a hand-held game console like the Sony Playstation Vita and Nintendo Switch. (Liliputing)

    It's a bit chunkier; the Nintendo Switch weighs around 11 ounces and this is nearly 20.

    On the other hand, it has a keyboard - under the 6" 1920x1080 display, which slides up if you want to type rather than play games, an 8 core Ryzen 6800U CPU, up to 32GB of RAM and 2TB of NVMe SSD.

    Don't need. Do want. It's twice as fast as the laptop I'm using right now.


  • The Ryzen 4100 and 4500 are here. (Tom's Hardware)

    Not sure exactly why, since these are older Zen 2 cores. But the 4100 costs $99 and the 4500 costs $129, and they're not bad chips. So I guess that's a reason.


  • There was a 23 year old denial-of-service bug in Curl. (Haxx.se)

    Sort of. Curl is a client-side tool (and software library) for fetching content from the web, so you could only really DOS yourself. It involved bad cookies, which are a problem. Probably oatmeal raisin, which are just cheap counterfeit chocolate chip.

Disclaimer: My family called them "squashed fly biscuits". In fact, the only thing that gets called a cookie in Australia is chocolate chip.
