Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the M.2 form factor and what it means for you. See also: NVMe. In the news, US states are working to protect net neutrality even if the federal government has gutted it, Uber may have sinister long term plans for self-driving car ownership, the Hawaii missile alert was more than just a bad GUI, and Best Buy was still selling CDs.
Four of our recent appearances are live on youtube! PAX Unplugged 2017 - Learn and WIN: Carcassonne, PAX South 2018 - Balance in Game Design, MAGFest 2018 - The 40 Tabletop Games you Need to Play, and Judge Anime by its Cover - Winter 2018!
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the crashiness of Scott's computer. In other news, we're back from back-to-back MAGFest and PAX South (there is video from our PAX South and PAX Unplugged panels), after the longest hiatus in GeekNights history, Microsoft finally adds ssh support (RIP Putty), video cards are overpriced thanks to a pyramid scheme, the socio-tech divide grows ever wider, and there may well be no real correlation between stock price and security breaches.
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider how one should choose the right technology. Need a new NAS? Trying to decide which video card to buy? Do you really need a 4k monitor? My NAS Research and this episode can help guide you through the process. In the news, Pokemon Go killed some people, a crazy spreadsheet ostensibly models New York transit, and we'll be live at both MAGFest and PAX South 2018!
It's an interesting time to be buying a computer, and we're both on the verge of doing just that. Rym's rig is pretty close to Scott's, but we talk in depth about the what and why of our choices. In the news, OSX's handling of /etc/hosts is ludicrous, and ransomeware takes out SF's transit terminals.
The GeekNights Patreon is worth checking out! We'll be at MAGFest and PAX South very soon!
