Intel benchmarked their new i9-9900K against a Ryzen 2700X.

I guess they forgot to mention the 2700X was running only 4 of it's 8 cores...

node: setInterval stops working after a month

node devs: "why do you need to run something for a month? just throw a loadbalancer at it, lol"

Sometimes I wonder why I went into IT and not into a less insane job like stuntjet pilot or warzone journalist.

Apparently Apple now puts software on their computers to prevent people from repairing them.

More reasons never to buy from Apple, I had to deal with that shit elsewhere already and it's a pain in the butt.

I wonder if Apple engineers have a secret, private version of Cards against Humanity where the black cards are phone components and the white cards are obscure defects.

Consumers: "I sure do hope Apple doesn't fuck up some basic functionality of their newly released device lineup!"

Apple: "HOLD MY BEER!"

*some time later*

iPhone: "What is charging?"

password generators are shit because they have to rely on the random number generators in your computers and software that the NSA obviously controls

the most secure password generator is putting a cat on your keyboard because nobody knows what the hell those devils think, not even the NSA

90% of problems migrating my VMs and containers to the new server is setting up temporary DNS redirects so that the old VMs and containers can be accessed correctly (for database and such).

Then again, I'm doing the big no-no of having to colliding namespaces for my intranet.

My new host got abused for a DDoS, misconfigured port closed after I was notified by the BSI (German Federal Agency for Computer Security)

Thanks BSI for making the internet a better place today <3

Finishing work on the final 3.5inch HDD mounting bracket I threw together in CAD. The bracket is measured out and can take a standard HDD sideways and has air tunnels on the side to allow for cooling. These will then later replace the current DIY brackets on my server (which are basically 90° steel angles mounted on a piece of board)

Migrating to the new host, atm only small and unimportant containers and VMs so I don't loose stuff. is the most recent one and it'll probably need a few hours for DNS to flip over. I'll try to sort that DNS problem out for the next ones.

Apparently either scammers figured out how to scrape mastodon or they took an amazing amount of time to scrape mine.

Either way, Helen, I'm sadly not interested in buying the attendees list of some con I haven't heard about, thank you very much.

Always remember to backup your TOTP codes!
