More water evaporates when it's warmer. What goes up must come down.

Yeah, I guess the meme was oceans rising. When it's oceans falling that's turning out to be the real problem.

They have done quite extensive water removal projects where I live. For months a road was up putting in new massive drains. Newmarket had large projects maybe 10 years ago. I assume other places too.

Everyone has their bubbles. The people I interact with day to day tend to fall in the university-educated progressive lefty space, and everyone seems to care a lot. But I'm a realist, and I understand that governments rise and fall based on the desires of a small number of swing electorates, and the people in those electorates aren't in my bubble.

Thumbs up

I got an Intel i5-11400F - this thing is fantastic!

Workload is a PostgreSQL database, so my benchmark is an account invoice report over a 1.3M row table with various joins and calculations with other tables.

Results:
AMD EPYC 7601 (cloud server, 16 allocated threads, 32GB RAM): 22.5 seconds
AMD Ryzen 2600 (6core/12 thread, 16GB RAM) : 12.1 seconds
AMD Ryzen 3100 (4core/8 thread, 16GB RAM): 10.0 seconds
Intel 11400F (6core/12 thread, 16GB RAM): 7.6 seconds

PostgreSQL isn't doing much in parallel queries (max 2), so it's more of a single thread test than a summed test of all the cores - a lot of the time is a final sort of the table, which I don't think is parallelized.

I tried 3200MHz RAM vs 2400MHz RAM but it makes very little difference in this test on either Ryzen or Intel - ~0.1second difference for both cases. That's about 1% in reality for what looks like 20-25% on paper.

It's not just a case of one CPU family is "better" than the other, it really depends on what you're intending to use it for: the Ryzens still beat the Intel significantly doing xmrig (Monero hashing), and time to calculate the DAG for ETH mining. Easily 30% faster for these things, even the older 2600 - but as far as bang for buck, this Intel is pretty fucking good, and is great for my PostgreSQL stuff. CPU was $259, total system build was ~$700 (no GPU, I use it headless). I very much doubt that a more expensive 11th Gen would reduce my execution time significantly - at least not enough to justify a 'twice the price' CPU.

I wonder what the viewership of the Olympics is going to be like. If it bombs, I won't be surprised.

This uproar over TVNZ playing ads during the moment of silence is pretty lolz.

Nothing in the media yet, it'll be interesting to see who breaks rank first, it'll be pretty sus if it just gets ignored.

Random wild prediction:

Next-gen alternative to the Olympics. Instead of all these dominant super-sports, it will be a display of all the kinds of niche activities people get into and hone to a high degree.

Held around the world simultaneously, rather than spotlighting a nation.

Dominant super-sports like (checks notes) skateboarding, ice dancing, and synchronised swimming?

Exactly. Stuff everyone has heard about, had some experience with.

As opposed to say, Mid-West Freestyle Canoeing.

Isn't She Lovely is a pretty catchy tune, but now I'm listening as a parent and it hits me right in the feels knowing exactly the sense of pride and wonder Stevie is singing about.

I noticed Hazel loves dancing to 12/8 feel. So played the song, watched her dance, and listened to the lyrics. Happy tears.

RIP Dusty.

Top man.

You brought Texas blues to the 70s/80s/90s.

I know it's that time of year where people are contemplating germinating seeds for planting into a garden, but this is your reminder that it's illegal to grow a garden in New Zealand.
