[02:43:59] <Bytram> Microsoft plan to force PCs with newer processors to Windows 10 backfires
[02:44:00] <Bytram> -- A faulty detection mechanism also snagged some 6th gen AMD Carrizo PCs and locked them out of future Windows Updates
[02:44:34] <charon> cmn32480: i did consider leaving the "this was not vandalized" part in there

[10:38:58] <takyon_> TheMightyBuzzard, I see what looks like a bug
[10:39:14] <takyon_> unreleased stories have an empty section_banner div
[10:39:18] <TheMightyBuzzard> takyon_, is it in anyone's coffee?
[10:39:23] <takyon_> obviously this affects almost no users, but whatever
[10:39:30] -!- n1 has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
[10:39:34] <takyon_> https://soylentnews.org
[10:40:39] <takyon_> is this takyon's most useless bug report yet?
[10:42:48] <TheMightyBuzzard> likely, yes. we technically got a lot of empty divs like modal_cover and such
[10:43:30] <takyon_> it shows up on the page, as you can see on the upcoming IDF story
[10:43:44] <TheMightyBuzzard> but i'm not finding a section_banner div on that page
[10:44:26] <takyon_> I reloaded and it's gone
[10:44:35] <takyon_> now it's a bug and a conspiracy
[10:44:55] <TheMightyBuzzard> ahh. appearing and disappearing is likely a proper bug then or at least odd behavior.
[10:45:03] <takyon_> must be one of those transient server issue bugs
[10:45:14] <TheMightyBuzzard> damned homeless servers
[10:45:27] <TheMightyBuzzard> they should get off their asses and get a job
[10:45:36] <takyon_> http://www.pcworld.com
[10:45:37] <TheMightyBuzzard> yeah, i'm looking at you, magnesium...
[10:46:01] <takyon_> Mobile and IoT will make Intel great again!
[10:46:57] <TheMightyBuzzard> something needs to or amd is gonna kick the hell out of it in server markets.
[10:47:29] <TheMightyBuzzard> 64 threads is a lot of room for vms
[10:47:42] <TheMightyBuzzard> that's VMs not VMS
[10:49:05] <takyon_> ah, the 32-core Naples
[10:50:30] <TheMightyBuzzard> blarg. openvms sure is dragging their feet getting x86_64 support.
[10:51:16] <takyon_> I wonder what pricing will be for that monster. If they put it at $2000, that's the same price per core as top-end desktop Ryzen and some enthusiast will surely buy it
[10:53:07] <takyon_> (insert gold price vs. iron price game of thrones meme)
[10:54:46] <TheMightyBuzzard> dude, i most certainly would. i'd never have to go find something to do while my system compiles new packages again.
[10:55:44] <takyon_> you can't! you promised to move to ARM because both Intel and AMD have the secret spy hardware
[10:56:16] <TheMightyBuzzard> ya but amd also promised to look into opensourcing their rootkit
[10:57:00] <takyon_> was that in that one Reddit AMA?
[10:57:06] <TheMightyBuzzard> yarp
[10:57:27] <TheMightyBuzzard> i doubt they will but ima hold on to the dream anyway.
[11:00:00] <takyon_> http://www.techradar.com
[11:00:31] <TheMightyBuzzard> right but they're gonna hafta lose a LOT of money to price it competitively.
[11:01:34] <takyon_> it will probably be $8000
[11:01:54] <takyon_> one thing Xeon has is 4 threads per core if I'm not crazy
[11:02:28] <TheMightyBuzzard> possible, dunno. do know you can't really use it as a desktop box as easily.
[11:02:44] <TheMightyBuzzard> even on linux
[11:05:47] <takyon_> https://en.wikipedia.org lol
[11:12:15] <takyon_> can we find a link confirming this before it runs? https://soylentnews.org
[11:12:26] <takyon_> I'll look for one later if I have time
[11:17:51] <TheMightyBuzzard> takyon_, appears to be a first person account thus original content thus nothing to link to
[11:22:42] <takyon> ok
[11:23:14] <takyon> inb4 #FakeNews
[11:24:27] <takyon> subbed an issue about no links in submissions

[16:15:24] <n1_> after a year of saying an early general election would be a bad idea... the government, with no opposition and strongest polling figures in 35 years has decided it's probably a good idea now
[16:15:27] <n1_> while they can still win
[16:16:27] <n1_> right wing press is going full erdogan talking about crushing the opposition once and for all
[16:25:01] <cmn32480> it is like the entire world has gone full retard...
[16:30:57] <n1_> just the long road on finally getting over voting for people.... it's always been about voting against the other people, and we can finally start being honest about that

[23:15:28] <charon_> how are things?
[23:15:52] <n1> things are decent, just got back from the supermarket
[23:16:22] <n1> going food shopping when you're hungry is a good way to buy extra stuff
[23:16:44] <n1> how is charon_
[23:17:00] <charon_> hah, that is true
[23:17:43] <charon_> i am alright. slower evening at work so far. but we are well into the swing of spring craziness
[23:19:35] <n1> all the DIYers start doing their projects around this time?
[23:22:32] <charon_> mostly it's yard work. seeding, soil aerating, rototilling gardens
[23:23:58] <charon_> and i have to show people how to use them properly, despite my not being a yardwork kind of guy
[23:33:34] <n1> for a fee i hope
[23:36:27] <charon_> that would be nice, but not really. according to the rules my employer has, i cannot accept tips
[23:52:32] <charon_> and if i get caught doing so, they can fire me
[23:56:16] <n1> that sucks balls
[23:58:24] <charon_> yep
[23:59:08] <charon_> of course, that just means don't get caught. or if a customer really insists, how can i say no to them?
[23:59:36] <charon_> but for all the extra stuff i do for people, it's surprising how infrequently i am offered a tip
