    Didn't think I'd be making a post about the things this does right but here we are   As for the bad, well, some of it is probably obvious already and the rest will become apparent in time, but for now I'd like to point out the things other companies should be copying:
    Streamlined setup - you just NFC to your iphone, hit a button, and it's activated.  Need to make a change on your account?  Just send a text (see the link for example).  No phoning, listening to a sales pitch about a service you don't want, etc. Very nice. Security - for one, no numbers on the front.  You can't leak your credit card number in a video by accident if it isn't on the card   Beyond that, apparently it connects with your phone in some way that makes the card unusable on its own if stolen.  Not sure how this works and would like more details but definitely sounds interesting. Easy visualization of payments - Again refer to the link for an example.  Hopefully this helps people who normally struggle with the apparently difficult concept of "just pay the bill each month" to avoid getting trapped in an endless debt cycle.  Again, nice touch.

    Microsoft has messed up their build releases once again.
    They accidentally pushed out a canary build to all insiders. It's not a major deal since it only affects insiders, but it's still one of those things that just shouldn't happen, and makes it seems like Microsoft are reckless with updates.

    My Dad is on the phone with State Farm to get coverage for his truck after a minor car accident (cracked radiator, light fender and bumper damage). Going off of his side if it, it's clear that it's not going well. 
     
    Private insurers have every incentive to not pay out, and I can hear my Dad calling out their BS.

    Userbenchmark.com apparently changed their algorithm to heavily favor single core and quad core over multi-core, which now means the i3-9350KF is "faster" than the i9-9980XE on UBM.

    Hello from the UK!
     
     
    Transcribed from the Notes app:
     
    Our plane was a 777-300. It wasn’t exactly a quiet ride, so I used some noise-cancelling headphones to catch some sleep (the exact posture I used to sleep on a desk in precalc class. I slept on a seat directly above the wing where I saw some cool-looking condensation on takeoff. The same spot on a 787 was much quieter. Currently, we have 4.5 hours before landing, so I’m typing this from the Notes app on my Mom’s iPhone 7 Plus. No airsickness this s time around. The infotainment  screens on the back of each seat are actually passively cooled (vents at the bottom and top, the top is noticeably warm) and run a build of Android.
     
     
    Update: Johnny English Strikes Again is a very good movie imo. 
     
    Update: 37,000 feet above Greenland. The curve of the earth is visible. 
     
    Update: Exactly 2.5 hours left until landing, according to the flight timer. Currently off the east coast of Greenland. 
     
    Update: 20 minutes until the announced breakfast time. This phone is missing a SIM card, and I won’t buy a new one (we’re only staying in the UK for a few days), so I’ll only post on free Wifi. 
     
    Update: Landing approach. I can hear all the flight membranes and landing gear moving.
     
    Update: We landed. There are 747s everywhere.  Our plane seems to be running over rows of speed bumps; the ride is vigorous.

    Quite literally a useless resource drain, but it's cool looking and has a few different visual options. Nice for screenshots, but not retina friendly since everything is glowly.

    So I was doing some preliminary benchmarking with my RX 480 eGPU. I ran Unigine Heaven at with OpenGL, at 1440x900, on Ultra, 2x AA with no Tessellation. 
     

     
    So as you can see, the x4 PCIe configuration and latency of Thunderbolt 3 cripple any GPU you put in it. Of note is that the fan on the 480 hardly gets to ramp up. Probably because so much of it's potential is wasted with Thunderbolt overhead.

    Seeing some people reporting issues with their 5700 and 5700XT. Looks like there are compatibility issues with 1809 and the latest drivers require that you be on 1903. 
     
    Given that I've experienced how reluctant MS is to serve 1903 to Ryzen owners, this does not surprise me. People have to manually upgrade to 1903 to get their Navi cards to work.

    Went to my grandpa's today. He didn't recognize any of us at fist, but after talking to him for a bit he remembered. He's very frail now and is under hospice care. It's really disheartening to see.
     
    There was a ceremony by two people from the hospice care center thanking him for his military service in WWII. It was... pretty bittersweet, to say the least.
     
    Anyway things are winding down for the night and I see lightning off in the distance so it's prolly time to head back to the hotel. Hopefully I get there before Vinny does cursed edutainment games for Vinesauce Is HOPE.
