My colleague @nielstanis@twitter.com is speaking at MS Build on 3rd party risk in .NET Core apps. Should be good!

tbh, that's not terrible for a machine that's (a) optimized for portability [it's 13"], and (b) doesn't really bill itself as a gaming/fast-GPU device…

And for giggles, installed it in BootCamp on my 2018 MacBook Pro: I can get 50-ish FPS! On Low Detail! With shadows off…

Because of time, I’m camp . Really just now getting into Doom (2016)

Previous machine with “upgraded” GPU: playable enough (40-65fps) if I keep detail to Medium with a couple of additional downgrade settings

New machine: set to Ultra, getting consistent 110-130fps

Say what you want about Perl, but open2() and open3() are such excellent interfaces to spawned-process IPC; half the time I don't even need to use Expect, just read/write the streams

Motherfucker. Dug into the airflow tonight and feel like a complete idiot. The fan for the CPU cooler tower was installed backwards—it was pushing air toward the intake side

The upside is now I'm topping out at 56° under CPU+GPU burn-in, so I don't need to add any fans

The downside is I feel like a fucking moron. What a n00b mistake

logged 69°C CPU while (with lovely irony) playing SUPERHOT. GPU doing just fine though

Hm, should I try to increase airflow on the intake side, where I already have a fan, or on the exhaust where I don't?

Temps holding nicely while encoding video. We get a little above 60°C under burn-in load, so I might want to tweak the airflow some

Build is up, everything BIOS/UEFI seems in good shape except my "DDR4-3000" RAM seems to only want to work at 2133; we'll see if that causes issues

Basic burn-in in progress

@darrenpmeyer @darrenpmeyer WHY DOES EVERYTHING HAVE TO GLOW?!

I mean, I love RGB pixels more than most people consider healthy, but RAM sticks don’t need to have RGB LEDs (that require a driver I’m sure is high-quality and written with security in mind 🙄)

people act like there are too many microgenres now as if every electronic subgenre in the early 00s wasnt like "dark gobblecore is a goth techno subgenre primarily focused around sampling the distinct calls of wild turkies"

Happy 30th Birthday, Intel 80486!

This is the 33MHz CPU I've used for my first own PC build, and at some point in the near future I'd love to try and rebuild that machine from spare parts.

Can't wait to see you boot up just once more, my old friend!

I haven't built a computer for… 10 years? Between laptops and things like RPi boxes, I haven't needed to. But it's time to have a proper gaming/hashing/encoding rig again, so here we go!

Ryzen 7 2700 (8 cores), 32GB RAM to start out, RTX 2070 GPU, 450GB SSD + 3TB of spinning rust

Feels good!

I respect the hell out of people that make an effort to learn a new language, especially if it's pretty obvious they're learning after immigrating to a new country.

But this dude at the next table keeps saying "established" like "EStah. blished" and it's super hard not to laugh or correct him.
