    That photo looks more like “Biltong” than “Jerky”

    Yum-Yum

    My parents just got back from Australia and brought me some kangaroo jerky. It was really good, but honestly it tasted just like any other meat.

      Was it flavored or just pure meat? I imagine that any of the flavorings like teriyaki would cover up most of the differences in taste between many types of meat.

        • RickyTick

        It was flavored, sweet and spicy or something like that. It could’ve been any kind of meat and I wouldn’t have known the difference.

      When I’ve had it (served as a steak, in a good restaurant) kangaroo has tasted very similar to rabbit (or a bit like farmed venison, which is much less gamy than wild stuff). Though I imagine there’s some difference depending on the cut.

      But dried meat loses a lot of its character. Now if you want to get exotic, I have some relatives in Inuvik who could hook you up with musk ox or caribou pemmican.

    TIE fighters inbound! Though they’re decidedly louder…

    No mention of the Amazon ARM CPU? [url<]https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/aws/new-ec2-instances-a1-powered-by-arm-based-aws-graviton-processors/[/url<]

      That post is kind of vague, but it gives the impression that their ARM server core isn’t anything special. Hopefully they’ll try to do better in the future.

        There’s some evidence out there that it’s using A72 cores.

    If you can’t get craft jerky then store bought is fine.

    [quote<]Battlefield V multiplayer CPU benchmark: Ryzen 7 2700X vs. Core i9-9900K @ TechSpot[/quote<] There, someone actually did it. Looks like it likes 4C Intel / 6C AMD and at least 6T either way. The difference in behavior on AMD vs Intel makes sense if it's got a lot of work that can be both vectorized and multithreaded.

      Glad to see that my 7700K is still a solid choice for BFV (especially with DDR3200). And kudos for Techspot for testing options below a modern i5. More sites should do that *cough*.

    That list by trash, waste paper and scatgun is a terrible. Minecraft, which they noted for being able to implement logic and create computers and interactive games, got #8. I’ve made my own circuits and created some cool things. Also, [not] surprised to not see factorio in the list. I use scripts in the console to do certain things. The list is terrible, hence my renaming of their site to something appropriate.

    [quote<]3.Nintendo joins the limited-mobility club with Xbox Adaptive Controller (unofficially) @ Ars Technica[/quote<]Maybe Nintendo should look at officially supporting something like this [url=http://www.kotaku.co.uk/2018/11/19/the-way-pokemon-lets-go-pushes-motion-controls-means-some-disabled-gamers-cant-play<]to avoid alienating a chunk of their audience.[/url<]

      Disabled gamers will always prove difficult for the company that wants to shoehorn motion controls into ALL THE THINGS.

    And we now have recursive shortbread (hint: when it comes to hacks, it’s Colton all the way down)

    Smoked Gouda cheese sauce does sound gooda.
