    GitLab now has a web based IDE.
    It's based on Monaco (the core text editor in VS Code) and you can open it directly from an individual file inside the repo. Seems pretty neat.

    Why are AMD fanboys so fucking stupid and rabid?
    Someone makes a negative video about Intel? Thumbs it up all day! Someone makes a video about switching from Ryzen to Intel? Thumb it down!
     
    By the way, Adobe updated Premier to support QuickSync. This gives a massive performance increase.
    You know how people say Final Cut is so fast on Macs? It's because of QuickSync, and Premier now has it too (if you have an Intel processor with an iGPU).
    In tests like these, enabling QuickSync gives a very large performance increase (about 100% increase in one test, and 60% in another)

    Since Nvidia bashing seems to be all the rage these days, I thought I'd share this video. It's an actual good Nvidia bashing video, compared to the terrible stuff people like AdoredTV puts out. It's informative, detailed and has proper sources all through the video.
    Also, this guy deserves more viewers and subscribers.

    New bill might be introduced in the US after the Facebook scandal.
    The new bill aims to, among other things, require users to explicitly agree and opt-in to having any personal information about them collected. So no more "it's in the EULA so it is OK".

    News tips for anyone who want to make a thread.
    CloudFlare has launched a DNS service using the IP 1.1.1.1.
     
    They say they don't log users, and the DNS supports both DNS over HTTPS (sending DNS queries in HTTPS packets) and encrypted DNS (I assume they mean DNSCrypt, but maybe it is DNSSEC?).
     
    Source is:
    https://web.archive.org/web/20180328150501/https://dns.cloudflare.com/
    Archive link because the site was only up for a little while before it was taken down.
     
    I just tested it and it is faster than Google's DNS in my test.

    My new NAS has arrived!
    It's a lot smaller than I expected. So far I'm really impressed by the Synology software.
    Transferring all my files from the old NAS to the new NAS will take about 20 hours....
     
    Old setup:
    2x2TB | 1x3TB | 1x4TB, in RAID5 (which means all drives are acting as 2TB ones)
    6TB usable storage, with 1 spare drive.
     
    New setup:
    2x2TB | 1x3TB | 4x4TB in SHR.
    15TB usable storage, with 2 spare drives (and 1 slot left for a future drive).

    I really want to upgrade my Sony Z4 Tablet. The only problem is that I want a 16:10 or 3:2 tablet.
     
    Seems like my options this year will be:
    Galaxy Tab 4 - The issue is that it uses a Snapdragon 835. It's not bad, but why would they put last year's SoC in a brand new product? At least it seems like they have gone back to a 2560x1600 resolution.

    Huawei MediaPad M5 - Weak GPU and no headphone jack.
     
    Why do companies suck at making Android tablets so much?

    Just ordered a new NAS.
    Upgrading from a NetGear ReadyNAS Ultra 4 (4 bays, 2TB drives).
    to a Synology DS1817+ with 8GBs of RAM (8 bays, and will be using two 2TB, one 3TB and four 4TB).
     
    So higher performance (From 1.66GHz single core Atom to 2.4GHz quad core Atom).
    Far more functionality (the Netgear one can't even use a proper SSL cert).
    From single drive failure tolerance to two drive tolerance.
    Usable storage space will go from 6TB to 15TB.
     
    I will also have 1 slot left for a future drive.
    I am not entirely happy with the processor used in the 1817+, but with Synology having a 2-3 year update cycle, and the 1817+ being released less than a year ago I'd have to wait another 1-2 years before upgrading. I really don't have time for that.

    If you sign up for 2 years it costs 37 USD a month for the first 6 months, and after that it's 60 USD a month.
     
    60 USD a month for 10Gbps Internet connection.
     
    They have also lowered the cost of their 1Gbps package to 50 dollars a month.
     
    They are also offering 40Gbps and 100Gbps Internet connections to enterprise customers.
     
    And no, I did not confuse the G with an M.
