    Merry Christmas, AE! Up next: Windows 14 and Mitch still pays the hosting bill.

    Personally waiting for Ryzen 9001. IT’S OVER 9000!

    So, AE is now old enough to drive.
  4. Shiny new version of IPB. I still pay for this shit.
  5. Thanks Jeff! The big 30!
  6. I think that's a record for them.
  7. My CHRIMBUS present to AE is more of my money every month. I moved the site to a totally unneeded but much faster server last night.
  8. When is the singularity?
  9. Half Life 3 announced!!! Just kidding, more like Half Life 1.5.
  10. The domain expired for ~5 days but we're back. Waiting for the next IPB update... Also the iPhone 11 is out.
  11. And on my birthday, MySQL gets upgraded, as is tradition.
  12. Thanks, Jeff! You were technically the first one to wish me a happy birthday. Much appreciated.
  13. Ken, You are now banned for life. Congrats!
  14. Jeff, please stop editing and deleting your posts. There is zero point.
  15. IPB 4.4.0!!!!! Wooooooo goodbye $25!
  16. "Ayo happy valentine's day." - PHP 7.3
  17. 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.
