Re: NIST password guidelines updated!

One side of my family grew up in the military. A number of years ago my mother and her brother decided it'd be fun if they tried to sneak "in the back door"(his words) into one of the bases where they used to live as kids. They get in the car and drive away. They get close, and suddenly th...

Re: Goodbye Vega 56 at MSRP

Regardless of what happens with mining in the next few months this is what AMD has got for a new GPU, so why not try to take advantage of that while it lasts. I wonder if the "blockchain" driver could provide some benefit to other GPU compute applications also. It's not very likely that we...

That's pretty nifty. Not sure how much use I'd have for it, but maybe I'll use it now that I know it's there.

Re: NIST password guidelines updated!

It's like wearing scrubs in a big hospital. If you look like you're supposed to be there, then you're supposed to be there. It's a rare thing for someone to stop and say, "hey, you new here?".

Or so I've heard.

Not really. Malicious code that happens to be written in JavaScript is just one possible attack vector of many, and(very) many sites simply won't function properly without it.

Re: How to crash RyZen in an automated manner

That's another one of your unanswerable questions, but in this case if the bug is difficult to reproduce under Windows natively, then I wouldn't think running a Linux VM/container/whatever it is would change that. That's a weird configuration for a large scale parallel compilation job anyway.

It's good so far. Just need to attach the surface to the frame when I get a chance, then I'll most likely move on to something else.

Re: Quick and dirty desk upgrade

Indeed they are, on both accounts. :D

I'll have to rip some scrap down for the spacers. None of the stuff I have on hand will fit. In the meantime, I just scooted the mounting points back a bit so the mounts are clamped to the side support of the door instead of resting on the panel.

Yeah, I can see how that could be a problem. I do intend for this to be temporary, but it'll do the job for now. I'm digging the extra space already. :P

Quick and dirty desk upgrade

I spend a lot of time at my desk which I'm sure it not a unique experience. Recently I've been feeling like I needed more desk space. I kept looking for places to put things that I wanted to keep close by, but didn't have any good spot for on my desk. Building my own desk has been one of those proje...

Re: DYMT: Imi's Legacy

I love the way shipping companies work. Especially FedEx. Nobody else can ship a package from St. Louis to Peoria (roughly 3 hours by car) in four days. But Fed Ex can do it. Everyone else can do it in 24 hours. screenshot from their hilarious website: https://twitter.com/TVsBen/status/892762120470...

Re: DYMT: Imi's Legacy

Broke a router bit in the shop today. It was a cheap bit, in a new router, and I was hogging out a lot of material. Fortunately it didn't become a projectile and stayed in the cut. Just one of those things that makes you think: Hmm, high velocity jagged steel. Awesome.

Re: What's in your garden?

My parents had blackberries in their yard while I was going up. It was awesome, but eventually they ate the fence they were growing on, and we had to do something about it. I don't have a lot of space for gardening here otherwise I'd try to plant some and bend them to my will.

Re: The Threadripper: THERE. ARE. FOUR. DIES!

If the PC World story is accurate, then the other two dies are not "defective", because they were never going to be part of a working CPU anyway. They're just spacers.
