Daily Tech News 8 October 2022

  • Nick Rekieta's YouTube channel is back after being targeted by a mass false-reporting campaign by the deluded acolytes of some commie swine named Kerfuffles or something. (YouTube)

    Proving once again that Twitter is the worst of all the social platforms.

    YouTube routinely shuts down major channels that make them lots of money individually on your or my scale of things (Rekieta would have earned them over $150k the past year) and lots of money collectively even on Google's scale (Hololive has over 60 channels and Nijisanji around two hundred, many larger than Rekieta, and they routinely get deleted without warning).

    But they put them back up within a couple of days. My sense of things is this is a legal issue - if they let the algorithm do its thing and manually intervene afterwards if it needs correction, they're harder to sue.

    Sucks when your channel is down for three days, but until Elon Musk takes control he ain't getting his Twitter account back.

  • If a scammer takes control of your bank account, 90% of the time you're just basically fucked. (Krebs on Security)

    Slightly less than 10% of affected accounts and slightly more than 10% of lost funds are reimbursed by the banks.

  • The Surface Pro 9 and Surface Laptop 5 are coming. (

    They look to be just minor updates to the 8 and 4 respectively, with no AMD models listed for this lineup. Which is stupid on Microsoft's part, because the Ryzen 6000 lineup is hands down the best option for small laptops.

  • On the other hand, if you were waiting for a better mousetrap NUC Asus has just the thing. (Liliputing)

    The ExpertCenter PN53 comes with a choice of a six core Ryzen 6600HS, or the eight core 6800HS or 6900HX. It has two SODIMM slots (the specs say it supports up to 32GB of RAM, but it should work fine with 64GB), two M.2 slots, and a 2.5" drive bay. (It also says it supports up to 2TB per M.2 slot, which is obvious nonsense - there is no such limit anywhere. So those numbers are more "we bothered to test this configuration and we're not going to say anything beyond that".)

    I/O consists of two USB 4 ports, two HDMI ports, five USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type A ports (that is, regular old USB 3), 2.5 Gb Ethernet, and a headphone jack, plus a little module that can give you another HDMI or DisplayPort output. But since the USB 4 ports support video and the chip can only drive four video outputs anyway, that seems superfluous.

    It's slightly larger than the average NUC - 5" square instead of 4" - but has better I/O and expandability. And much better graphics - the integrated graphics on the 6800 and 6900 models are more than twice as fast as anything offered by Intel.

  • Axios.get is not a function you idiot. (GitHub)

    Web framework Axios - which I've never heard of but there are thousands of the damn things these days - pushed a new release which broke thousands of production websites because web developers are fucking dumb.

    To be clear: Axios said "hey guys, here's a new version for you".

    And then the websites broke, because the people maintaining them either blindly deployed the code without testing, or, even worse, configured their websites to pull it directly without specifying a version.

  • To quine a phrase...

    Looks innocuous enough, until you click on the link.

    Here's the details of how it was done. (Oison Moran)

    As to why it was done, well, why did Hillary Clinton bomb Mount Everest?

Disclaimer: Because it had information that could lead to her arrest, yes, but apart from that.
