15 years ago today I committed to starting Gaucho Software by registering gauchosoft.com. It’s hard to believe I’ve been doing this for so long. Still absolutely love being an Indie!
Picked up a couple of Cisco 48 port Layer 3 switches for $20 each today at the local university’s surplus sale. Hoping at least one of them works so I can use it for my main network switch (will still have 10Gb on a separate switch/VLAN).
After 8 hours, still less than a third of the way done building the RAID. Once this is finished, I’ll have over 100TB of raw storage in the rack.
I guess you could say Apple was…screwed.
Also: “The report reveals an interesting anecdote about the latest Mac Pro. In late 2012…” Yes, we’re still talking about the “top-end” Mac being sold in 2019.
On track to run out of storage on the 30TB NAS hosting my backups in about 3 months. Might have to upgrade sooner rather than later.
Had a great week in Phoenix for #AMS2019. EIPT had a lot of great content this year, and kudos to everyone who volunteered to cover gov employees who couldn’t make it (NOAA/NWS, you were missed).
See you next year for #AMS100!
So you’re saying there’s a chance… @NWSGrandRapids CC @Chasin_Jason @JTAllen3
Single core is 45% faster, and multi-core is 33% faster than my 6 core 2013 Mac Pro. Really quick.
My Core i7 Mac mini arrived yesterday. First impressions…
It gets hot. I’ve started calling it the hotplate.
The fan moves a lot of air. The airflow is louder than a Mac Pro.
The GPU is keeping up with dual 4K displays, so far.
It’s quick, really quick.
After using the Magic Trackpad with haptic feedback, switching back to the original with mechanical buttons feels barbaric.
FWIW, our polling location here in central Michigan has been packed all day. I can’t remember having to wait that long in line for any previous election.
Why in 2018 is the default value for translatesAutoresizingMaskIntoConstraints still set to true…?
Seems like many are looking forward to having A-series CPUs in Macs. The speed and power consumption benefits would be significant. However, it comes at the expense of compatibility with other x86 OSes and virtualization. For many, that’s a real inconvenience. #NeverForgetSoftPC
Kept laughing to myself during Apple’s talk today every time they described how much faster these Macs are compared to the last revisions. They _should_ be that much faster when you compare them to 4 year old computers…
Looks like the low-end 6 core CPU might not have Hyper-Threading. That extra $200 is well worth it if this is the case.
Looks like the high end Mac Mini CPU is the Core i7-8700. It scores 5304 on single core and 23010 on multi-core, which is 46% faster on single core and 31% faster on multi-core than my 2013 6 core Mac Pro.
I was planning to replace a 2012 Mac Mini server, but it’s tempting to use it as my desktop until the new Mac Pros are finally ready.
Any idea of what the Geekbench scores are for the 6 core CPUs in the new Mac Minis?
Really nice to see 10Gbe at just a $100 option though.
Apple Store is back up. $1400 for the 64GB RAM option on the Mac Mini. Another $1400 for the 2TB SSD option.
If Apple releases the rumored “Pro Mac Mini” on October 30th, then we’ll have a Pro iMac, a Pro Mac Mini, and a Pro MacBook Pro, yet still no Pro Mac Pro.
