    Out of curiousity, I decided to buy the KZ ZST in-ear monitors for like $15. I thought it would be interesting to compare stuff in this price range to my flagship FiiO FH5s.
     
    Spoiler alert, these are kind of garbage, or I'm just too demanding of high quality audio that I've been de-sensitized against the budget stuff.

    Once again, for the 2nd time I find myself dealing with the displeasure that is NEMIX's support system. All I hope for is that this time around it doesn't take almost 30 days to resolve my problem.
     
    In the meantime this new RAM is impressive:

    It uses a standard number of chips (18 because of 72-bit/error correcting). The thing that I'm most impressed by here is that each one of those packages (ignoring the big one in the middle) are 4GB each.
     
    Now that doesn't sound like a lot but in contrast here is a 8GB stick of RAM:

    Each of those chips are only 512MB that means the NEMIX packages are a 800% increase in density over today's most standard modules. That's insane.
     
    So anyways all I can do is hope NEMIX gets back to me because it seems like every other month the RAM manufacturers change their manufacturing process so when I order more my Supermicro board is like "Yo half your RAM isn't like your other half of RAM I'm not gonna juggle this s***: SYSTEM INITIALIZING" and just never POSTs.
     
    Now, as dumb as this sounds I'm going to attempt to speed-run NEMIX support. They already told me to ship the old RAM but I'm going to verify that with them because I think it'll save me time if I misunderstood which set of four they want. They want an invoice which I guarantee I don't have because the old set of four modules where the replacement ones they sent me. So that may cause problems. I have to wait for a reply Monday to see what they say.
     
    Once this is resolved I think I'll stop. 0.5TB of RAM should be more than enough for any amount of processing I'll have the server doing.

    YouTube rewind is out for the year and I have a few things to say.  Bad news first, then the good.
     
    They've given up on the huge production with lots of famous people and made it simply a compilation video.  It's not special or interesting at all as a result.
    As usual, there is also an enormous discrepancy between what I'd consider to be the big events of the year and what they've included.
     
    However,
     
    They selected content entirely based on popularity (most liked, most watched, etc.) so I can't really knock them for the selection.  Unlike last year, there's no way we can complain that they selected things from mainstream media while suppressing the user content the platform is actually built on.  It was straight up just a "top 5" or "top 10" of every category, so even though subjectively I strongly dislike the choice, it's objectively perfect.  The fact that they did this - actually listened to the complaints from last year and tailored the new one to rectify those complaints - is a huge deal and they deserve a lot of praise for that.

    I guess you can't trust users to turn ultrawide band features off manually. 🙃

    All that local storage, the joys of SLI micro stutter, the Enermax cooler gunking up and idling at 70, first Gen threadripper wonkiness, the joy of ridiculous Cinebench R15 scores that are just commonplace now, not yet knowing that @CableMod was, that time I though 3 ultrawide monitors was a good idea lol...
