    How many more holes until their ground crumbles?

        Oh well. It's orders of magnitude better than living in denial...

          Intel security is getting to be like a pile-up on the highway, that's why my latest purchase had a Ryzen 4500u in it.

            I guess this is Intel's new strategy to distract people from their CPU vulnerabilities?

              I get that virtually all hardware has errata. And I get that there is probably more focus on intel's CPUs due to their historical dominance in the datacenter, where any and all vulnerabilities can potentially be leveraged by bad actors.

              But it's still chilling to feel like we've reached the point where intel disclosing yet another batch of vulnerabilities is met with a resounding "meh".

              Are datacenter customers switching away from intel chips to either AMD, ARM, POWER or something I've yet to to imagine...?

                This could be related to https://www.reddit.com/r/programming..._repositories/ I'm glad that I'm not working for Intel right now.

                PS: SonarQube is a PITA, for some reason it defaults your repo to public when you initialize it. Good thing I spent more than 5 minutes setting it up.

                  Soon there will be so many vulnerabilities the hacks won't work.

                    yes.
