I keep forgetting that my Prometheus and Grafana server at home is running on a Raspberry Pi and not on a Proxmox VM.

I almost always end up downloading the amd64 version instead of the arm64 version. It also doesn't help that amd64 and arm64 look a little too similar when not looking at things carefully.

🤦🏻🤦🏻🤦🏻

@vwbusguy That said, I'm pretty sure it irks at least one person at Intel every day that x86_64 is referred to as "amd64" across so many operating systems and applications 😅

x64 is a decent compromise between amd64 and x86_64.

aarch64 is definitely preferrable, though it may not be 100% obvious that they are referring to ARM when they first see it.

I'm glad Fedora took the less ambiguous and confusing route.

Last Friday marked 10 years since the last Wait Wait Don't Tell Me! show where Carl Kasell was the official judge and scorekeeper before retiring.

This Friday marks 10 years since Bill Kurtis became the official judge and scorekeeper.

I was honored to be invited to Washington, DC to be at the taping of the former. The folks at Wait Wait gave me essentially a front row seat in front of Carl Kasell and Peter Sagal.

@petes_bread_eqn_xls @severud Yeah, I remember that. I try to avoid Hertz whenever possible for personal travel.

Hertz is sometimes the only available option for work travel. Thankfully, I haven't had to travel for work in a long time.

I wish I didn’t feel like Apple was one of the very few, sometimes only, major tech companies trying to build with privacy in mind. Yes, I get there are arguably places it may or can erode that design. They’re besides the point for now.

And granted, I generally like Apple’s products. But in some ways I also feel like I’m stuck here; I truly wish more of its peers valued our privacy.

@chartier At this point, I'm only using macOS or Linux on my personal laptops and I'm only using Windows as a primary OS on my work-provided laptop.

I wish there were more accessible (in more ways than one) alternatives as well.

Socket AM5-based AMD EPYC is now a thing. This is similar to the playbook that Intel uses for their entry level Xeon processors; except, AMD doesn't have hybrid cores that need disabling while Intel shuts off E cores.

VAR should have a review time limit. If it’s for clear and obvious errors, a review shouldn’t take 2-4 minutes.

@0bm I think Attacking Third mentioned that the average stoppage time for NWSL games this season, up through last week, was around 15 minutes per game. A good chunk of that is due to VAR.

That's a boatload of stoppage time and added playing time on players.

When is the last time you ate at a Red Lobster?

I’ll go: at least 13+ years ago in a suburb outside Chicago.

@paninid I don't remember I ever went to one as a kid, but I know I haven't been to one since.

@paninid As far as reasons, my mom and I rarely ate out as she was a working single mom and would rather cook Vietnamese seafood dishes.

After that, I don't think I've really considered going to one considering that I prefer sushi or other forms of Asian seafood dishes than what Red Lobster had.

@chessert Outside of my work laptop, I also only have a Windows 10 VM that I use for certain media file processing that I haven't found an easier workflow yet. It's also running on one of the last Intel generation Mac minis.

I even yeeted Windows 10 from my Surface Pro 3 to run Linux on it 😂

Does anyone know where to find the animated GIF of one CPU doing all the work while the other CPUs are playing around and the GPU waiting for things to get done?

The new interactive interpreter included with Python 3.13 is pretty darn sweet!

Paste support is really nice, just hope the terminal doesn't like to eat paste.

@geofft Yeah, I was half-joking about the eating paste bit, but I know it's a pain point for a lot of people and programs.
