intelcorei7Skylake, Meh?
The NDA on Intel’s new Skylake processors has been lifted and the reviews are pouring out.
The gist I’m getting:
– If you are on Sandy Bridge then upgrade.
– If you are on Ivy Bridge, Haswell, or Broadwell then it probably isn’t worth it.

thSeveral folks have asked about the comments being disabled or why I don’t have forums.
The simple reason is they take up a lot of time (and in truth is more than I can handle). Folks on the internet seem to lose all sense of decorum and decency behind the veil of the anonymity of the internet. Fanbois, trolls, spammers, and personal attacks tend to be the rule, not the exception. I’ve just lost my taste for that garbage. It’s one of the many reasons I left social media. In an attempt to keep trolls and spammers away I tried to use the Disqus comment system but it wasn’t what I was looking for. I really wanted something where people had to truly be responsible for what they say. Possibly something where the user had to provide, at some level, their real identity. I realize that may seem naive and unrealistic but there it is.
I’ve got some great folks that come by here regularly and I would love to provide y’all something. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.

Abracadabra *poof* Mandriva Is Gone
The first Linux distro I ever used is no more.
