From next year, the Dutch regulator will require all Internet Service Providers to allow their customers
to use their own modem/router instead of forcing them to take one chosen & administered by the ISP.

Default My 7820x is putting the rest of my PCs to shame

My previous fastest PC; i5-3570K OC'd to 4.2Ghz started 2012-12-05.
My newer much faster PC; i7-7820X running at 4.0Ghz started 2018-10-30.

Today the 7820X surpassed the 3570K in total GhzDays at 86,300.
Elapsed times of: 3,181 days (almost 9 years) vs 1,026 days (almost 3 years).

And the 7820X has the workers improperly configured until early this year; it should have taken less than 2.5 years.
The 7820X is currently doing P1 at the rate of 50,000 GhzDays/Year
The 3570K is under 12,000 per year.

Revived a system that had been down due to HD issue. Not only allows completion of a 105M PRP that was nearing expiration on prime95, but allows putting a couple midrange GPUs back to work. Recovery from backup to another system saved all but a couple days progress. System no longer even recognizes the old HD as connected.


(edit: sorry, can't take credit for freedom-from-FB day. That system had been down for weeks. It is interesting that it follows so closely the FB whistleblower episode aired on 60 Minutes yesterday though.
facebook.com traceroutes ok from here, but www.facebook.com does not. FB, Whatsapp, Instagram, and Netflix down.
>tracert www.facebook.com
Unable to resolve target system name www.facebook.com.

DNS issue at least.)

Facebook, Instagram and Whatsapp are also down for several hours
It has nothing to do with it?

Hey, this is the happy me thread. You seem disappointed or irritated by that.

But in fact, I'm quite happy about that in the moment. This may be different for others.

I don't really care.
I don't use FB. And I think WatsApp is a crooked homemade product.
Instagram is a special thing, but my business develops well through it. Therefore, I will not talk bad or good about Instagram :)

In the thread about Paleocontact someone mentioned that the whole forum is common and it is permissible to read and write everywhere if you really want to.
But if even one person is against it, I will never do it here. No problem.

And I want to thank @Xyzzy here for the Kfir Ochaion channel, referenced in Exotic Plants.

I didn't notice.

My time is mine. *I* will choose when I check in with those I considered important.

I am doubly happy.

1) My name is written in green. This is certainly not a real green, but green anyway. It is Ok for me.
I thought the color was consistent with some advancements in finding Mersenne primes.
But it turns out that one can become green for adherence to the Theory of Paleocontact also.

2) I have a greenskull blog now in the Blogorrhea section, where I now post my thoughts and ideas.
Unfortunately, the names of some of my early topics, which were transferred to my greenskull blog and which were distorted by overly humorous moderators earlier, remained so:
Do we eat veg(etari)ans here? (Do we have veg(etari)ans here?)
Meaning of Trife (Meaning of life)
But it seems to me that it gives additional charm :)
