Faster for sure

I just upgraded from the 2016 MBP to the 2018 MBP. The memory is faster (and I’ve doubled the amount), the GPU and CPU are faster, and wowsa the hard drive is MUCH faster.

CPU RESULTS BELOW (Geekbench)

COMPUTE RESULTS BELOW (Geekbench)

STFU

Mr Trump, please STFU (everyone wins). That’s short for “shut the fuck up”. I know I should use less abrasive language but what a twat (there I go again)! I genuinely hope that you and your family face and are convicted for criminal charges you so richly deserve. Because of my great big hear I do think your defense of “insanity” should be heard as “dementia” and allow for you to move your hard time to a mental facility that can adequately take care of your growing needs. I further hope that the max security prison that Jared and Ivanka are sent to allow them to visit the big T at his facility as everyone should be allowed access to their families (yes even Mexicans Mr President).

Oh and btw, your giving advice to the Fed today — that you didn’t appreciate the Fed following normal monetary policy — while you were trying to bolster the economy is just fucking laughable. You don’t know shit about monetary policy and so your play is fairly easily exposed as an attempt to have “an excuse” when your financial dealings for the rich don’t pan out for your base.

My Running Goal

Just had a look at my running tally for the year so far and I appear to be increasing my velocity (even though I’m still really not hitting my long runs). I had determined at the beginning of year that I wanted to have over 500 miles and unless I have an injury it appears this goal will be easily met. 🙂

My new MBP

My new 15” Macbook Pro arrives on Thursday and I’m excited. I spend a lot of hours every day on my MBP and true the 2016 model and 2018 model visually appear nearly identical, the performance characteristics of the 2018 model are a huge jump and that’s what I’m looking for. I am a power user. I have LOTS of things open all the time, I use coding editors with transpilers always running in the background but I also do photo editing too (not as much). I’ve been dying to have 32 gb RAM for  ages and now I will along with 6-cores, DDR4 RAM, and lightning fast SSD’s (apparently off the charts faster than anything else on the market currently).

Doing as my iPhone tells me

Woke up this morning to my iPhone telling me that it had detected a problem with my TruDepth camera and that I should immediately report to the Apple Store. Needless to say I have done as my overlord has suggested and am now at the Apple Store.

In some ways I guess there’s nothing new about this but still self-diagnosis is an area where I suspect computing devices will be getting a lot better over the next 5 years.
