I've been using Cherry MX switches for a decade now and they proved reliable and satisfying. My favorite is the red with blue a close second. However, if you yearn for the unmistakeable qualities of the Buckling Spring mech, I'd suggest looking at Unicomp

May 2020 (version 2004) is out. As always, for production machines I recommend running one version behind the most recent (which means now would be the time to upgrade to version 1909) and early adopters should defer updating a couple of weeks.

My blog has been mostly abandoned for the last couple of years in more ways than one. I plan to revive it, and in the meantime did some Back-End work to bring it up to speed. It still needs some Front-End final touches but that'd have to wait for another weekend.

Parallel (multi-threaded) execution, introduced back in 2016 as an experimental feature, is now out of Beta. Helpful when backing up large number of smaller files and to network shares. Automatically waking up the computer simplifies things. No need to overthink scheduling.

I'm well. Thanks for asking, Paul. Stay safe and I hope you enjoyed the day, all things considered.

Yet, they are corporate members (a curious concept to begin with) in at least two so-called professional T&I associations. The problem is not an isolated incident or market player as the translation market is predominantly designed to deceive: buyers and each other.

Maybe the younger generations growing up with today's computing paradigms would say the same 20 or 30 years from now. After all, nothing beats discovering something exciting for the first time, growing into and with it, and having plenty of time to tinker around with it.

Very true, Paul. It was simpler back then despite everyday tasks being more elaborate and involved to carry out. I suppose today we all live on someone else's machine in one way or another and this takes away some of the fun and freedom of experiment.

That's so cool, Frédéric! Brilliant piece of computer history.

I must admit there's a certain charm to "retro" computing, which I sometimes miss. Not least because back then people treated computers as what they are — tools — instead of black box magical devices. A perspective we seem to have twisted and lost.

What about TRIM support? Does byenow work the same here as the integrated methods?

It also clearly shows that many brokers first wait to get paid by their clients before they can afford paying the people they hired. Not only this should be a concern because this model is not financially sustainable, but it also begs the question what value are they adding?

Quick tip. Annoyed by automatically opening (some) programs from the last session after a reboot? Go to Start > Settings, search for Sign-in Options and disable the 'Use my sign-in... and reopen my apps after an update or restart' option.

What about the question nobody seems willing to discuss? Copyrights. The content in those databases used to train "AI" (because AI is a misnomer) comes from somewhere and created by someone. Crawling the web, using existing translations, and so on might infringe on copyrights.

Perfect translation is a misnomer. Second, algorithms are only good as the data. Given how quality continues to plummet pretty much industry-wide, maybe the question is whether or not data will become too unreliable for any type of training conducive of "perfect translation".

New year, new PBT keycaps from (they are actually darker than it looks here). Wasn't sure what I'd think of the Cherry profile, which is lower than the OEM profile keycaps I've been using for a good while now, but so for I enjoy it quite a bit.
