    And on my birthday, MySQL gets upgraded, as is tradition.

    Thanks, Jeff! You were technically the first one to wish me a happy birthday. Much appreciated.

    Jeff, please stop editing and deleting your posts. There is zero point.

  7. I have no fucking idea where the member list went, nor when it disappeared. It was probably from an update like 3 years ago. Don't worry. An update is coming soon. Maybe they re-add it.

    Yeah, that'll be interesting. Supposedly he's done a pretty good job. Some people still think Intel could have chosen better if a candidate presented themselves, which I think has largely been their issue.

    Jeff, I think it's going to be an uphill battle for the next few years. Security researchers are really honing in on CPU bugs these days, and taking a deeper look into finding firmware vulnerabilities. CPU hardware and BIOS/UEFI/Firmware bugs used to be something out of a science fiction novel. Most security researchers were more focused on finding easier to spot and easier to exploit and presumably more widespread bugs in things like Adobe Flash & the webbrowser of your choice, along with Microsoft Windows. Then, someone got the bright idea to start poking around things like Intel Management Engine and some other fun Intel-specific motherboard backdoors features. They've finally made their way to the CPU. I think it'll be important to decide whether or not you're concerned with the performance hit by whichever method of fixing they implement in whichever chip you buy. I think we're looking at probably 2 more years until this stuff really dies down. I foolishly thought we'd have kind of a "smoking gun" solution with the next batch of CPUs for Spectre/Meltdown but now with things like Foreshadow & other variants, that doesn't really seem to be the reality of it. All that aside, I'm very excited for the prospect of building a super rig with a 2080 Ti & i9-9900K. However, AMD should have Zen 2 out sooner than later. Maybe that'll blow the 9900K away. And supposedly their upcoming GPU line-up will be awesome as well.

    Jeff, I have a not-so-secret Instagram that you can probably manage to find. Regrettably, Corporate America also dictates that I have a somewhat-current LinkedIn. These two things included, social media fucking sucks. I don't miss it and occasionally question my even-limited involvement in it. I deleted my Facebook permanently in August of 2012 and never looked back. As far as processors are concerned, it's a very interesting time to be alive. I would have bought an i7-8700K before Spectre/Meltdown, but I'm glad I didn't and it's also nice to see AMD forcing 8 core chips into the mainstream. I hope Zen 2 is incredible. However, I wouldn't overlook the possibility of Intel pulling a rabbit out of a hat. Single threaded performance is a battle AMD hasn't won in years, unfortunately. Hopefully AMD's continued quick pace into die shrink-downs can help them secure a long-awaited victory in that area too. I look forward to someday throwing out my Razer Blade laptop from a couple of years ago and getting a real (desktop) computer again.
