Dell Is Cancelling Alienware Gaming PC Shipments To Several US States

davide marney writes: Orders for Alienware Aurora R12 and R10 gaming PC configurations placed in California, Colorado, Hawaii, Oregon, Vermont, or Washington will not be honored because of power consumption regulations, reports PC Gamer. “Any orders placed that are bound for those states will be canceled,” Dell states in a message.

“The Aurora R12 and R10 are built around the latest generation processors from Intel and AMD, the former featuring 11th Gen Core Rocket Lake CPUs and the latter wielding Ryzen 5000 series chips based on Zen 3,” reports PC Gamer. “Unfortunately for both Dell and buyers who reside in affected states, the majority of Aurora R12 and R10 configurations consume more power than local regulations allow. There are exceptions, though [depending on the configuration you select].”

YouTube Channel ‘Tech Support Scams’ Taken Offline By Tech Support Scam

The Tech Support Scams YouTube channel, operated by host and creator Jim Browning, was deleted after a tech support scam convinced Browning that the only way to secure his account was to delete it. The Register reports: “So to prove that anyone can be scammed,” Browning announced via Twitter following the attack, “I was convinced to delete my YouTube channel because I was convinced I was talking [to YouTube] support. I never lost control of the channel, but the sneaky s**t managed to get me to delete the channel. Hope to recover soon.” To fool Browning, the ruse must have been convincing: “I track down the people who scam others on the Internet,” he writes on his Patreon page. “This is usually those ‘tech support’ call frauds using phone calls or pop-ups. I explain what I do by guiding others in how to recognize a scam and, more importantly, how

EC2-Classic is Retiring – Here’s How to Prepare

Let’s go back to the summer of 2006 and the launch of EC2. We started out with one instance type (the venerable m1.small), security groups, and the venerable US East (N. Virginia) Region. The EC2-Classic network model was flat, with public IP addresses that were assigned at launch time.
Our initial customers saw the value right away and started to put EC2 to use in many different ways. We hosted web sites, supported the launch of Justin.TV, and helped Animoto to scale to a then-amazing 3400 instances when their Facebook app went viral.
Some of the early enhancements to EC2 focused on networking. For example, we added Elastic IP addresses in early 2008 so that addresses could be long-lived and associated with different instances over time if necessary. After that we added Auto Scaling, Load Balancing, and CloudWatch to help you to build highly scalable applications.

I’m still trying to figure out how to use tagging. The goal is to create an index, like the index in the back of a book. Maybe when I have enough tags I will be able to create a book from my writing here? It approximates the way we did the index in the back of software manuals at Living Videotext. Hmm. Maybe tagging would work well for the Drummer docs? Also my apologies to email readers, for some reason the tags don’t show up in emails. I have to figure out why, but I’m not working near there at this time.
