intel CPU history 

intel has made a fuck ton of CPUs. do you know how many? lots of them. every new process requires new factories and all kinds of waste. but did you know there's a DARK secret? ok maybe not DARK or a secret, but something really worth digging in to. so let's look at the history here

Happy birthday to TROGDOR THE BURNINATOR. sbemail #58, "dragon" was originally released on January 13, 2003.

When I set this thing up I assumed I was going to use it to deliver my spicy takes on the news of the day. Now it turns out the news is too spicy and I have nothing to say.

Damn. Shit's crazy.

The more I think about this the more pissed off I am. The writers still have a couple of episodes left to redeem this but I'm not hopeful. I have been positive on Disco for its entire run so far even through the rough parts. But this is just too dumb.

The burn was caused by a crying baby. This has got to be the stupidest timeline.

Uhhh, fascist Alex Jones is on mastodon.

Guessing fediverse admins may want to block that instance (it calls itself "The pro-liberty social network" which is fash speak)

Just a heads up to anyone who isn't a fascist lol

Homestar Runner was really only a Thing from like 2003-2004

But somehow it comprises about 75% of the non-Star Trek cultural references I make

Instead of giving money to CDPR for their milquetoast but pretty (if you're not on a base console) Cyberdong game, spend the same amount for this Itchio bundle of cyberpunk games.

@Wayril Based on the cw I assumed this was going to be the quote about how anyone capable of getting themselves elected president should under no circumstances be allowed to do the job, but the Total Perspective Vortex fits too!

@yogthos Top right is supposed to be a motorcycle cop, if memory serves me right. Hence the helmet and leather jacket. Bottom left has some sick robot claws, I don't know what that's all about. Come to think of it that one kind of reminds me of T-1000.

A tool to simply "move" your Spotify end-of-year playlists to Bandcamp.

Paste your playlist URL and hit Find and it'll hook you up with the artists on BandCamp.

(This is your regular reminder that Spotify is awful for musicians and is destroying podcasts.)


Just realized I have exactly 3 weeks left of my 30s. Not feeling any particular way about it. Just sort of a 'huh' moment.

@zacchiro Nothing inherently wrong with using tablets in the classroom. Students can struggle with badly-worded assignments or get distracted and start doodling on paper just as easily as on a tablet. The problem is more that teachers don't have the time or resources to give students the individual attention they need.

There are other reasons to oppose giving tablets to students, for example I would rather Google not spy on my kids.

Also notable that this was written pre-COVID.
