Intel To Remove Old Drivers and BIOS Updates From Its Site

By Friday this week, Intel plans to remove old drivers and BIOS updates from its official website. From a report: “This download, BIOS Update [BLH6710H.86A] 0163, will no longer be available after November 22, 2019 and will not be supported with any additional functional, security, or other updates,” reads a message posted to the download page of one of the impacted components. “Intel recommends that users of BIOS Update [BLH6710H.86A] 0163 uninstall and/or discontinue use as soon as possible,” the message continues. The downloads are drivers and BIOS updates for Intel desktop components and motherboards the company released in the 90s and early-to-mid 2000s. Downloads for hundreds of components are believed to have been impacted, from motherboards to NIC cards and graphics cards. Most of the drivers are for Windows versions like 98, ME, XP, and older Windows Server editions — old Windows OS versions that have themselves reached end-of-life

In The Works – New AMD-Powered, Compute-Optimized EC2 Instances (C5a/C5ad)

We’re getting ready to give you even more power and even more choices when it comes to EC2 instances.
We will soon launch C5a and C5ad instances powered by custom second-generation AMD EPYC “Rome” processors running at frequencies as high as 3.3 GHz. You will be able to use these compute-optimized instances to run your batch processing, distributed analytics, web applications and other compute-intensive workloads. Like the existing AMD-powered instances in the M, R and T families, the C5a and C5ad instances are built on the AWS Nitro System and give you an opportunity to balance your instance mix based on cost and performance.
The instances will be available in eight sizes and also in bare metal form, with up to 192 vCPUs and 384 GiB of memory. The C5ad instances will include up to 7.6 TiB of fast, local NVMe storage, making them perfect for video encoding, image manipulation,

Radio UserLand reprise?

An unsolicited testimonial on Twitter about Radio UserLand got me thinking, it was a good combination of features. Blogging integrated with a feed reader. In 2001. It was the product that defined blogging for many, including people who went on to write popular blogging software. And it was where podcasting was born. Radio was both a podcatcher and a tool for managing a podcast feed. It did both sides. I don’t know of any product, 18 years later, that does that. And it was easy. We really honed the UI.
