24 Core 的 ARM Server...

在「Banana Pi to Launch a 24-Core Arm Server」這邊看到 Banana Pi 打算推出 24 core 的 ARM server...

看起來還蠻不錯的:

We have 24-core Arm Cortex A53 processor with 32GB RAM (29.4GB seen by the OS) running Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS with MATE desktop. There aren’t that many 24-core Arm Cortex A53 processors, so unless the company is using an announced processor, it has to be SocioNext SC2A11 processor also found in Linaro Developer Box.

拿來當 desktop 好像也不錯,不知道最終的定價會是多少...

2018 年矽谷科技公司的薪資

不太意外的,排名起來加州這一區的科技公司的薪資還是最高的 (這邊包括了所有的所得,包括薪資、股票與分紅):「Top Paying Tech Companies of 2018」。

已經先整理出來的前五名分成「Entry-level / 1+ Yrs of Experience」、「Mid-level / 3+ Yrs of Experience」、「Been Around the Block / 5+ Yrs of Experience」三類,可以看到相對於年資的增加,薪資的調整也很快...

不過這邊相同名次的不會佔多個位置,只會佔一名,跟我們平常用的方式不太一樣,所以雖然是前五名但是都有六個公司。

加拿大禁止透過 ISP 發送版權侵害通知

因為被濫用的關係,加拿大決定禁止版權擁有人透過 ISP 發送版權侵害通知:「Canada Prohibits Piracy Settlement Demands in ISP Copyright Notices」。

不過這個限制是有條件的,只有當通知裡面有包括任何形式的協議時才會被禁止:

Moving forward, rightsholders will not be allowed to send copyright infringement notices for ISPs to pass onto their customers, if they contain a direct or indirect offer to settle.

TorrentFreak 的文章裡也提到了,就是要阻止這樣的行為變成「產業」:

The development effectively ends Rightscorp-style business models in Canada.

這是條文:

Bill C-86, the Budget Implementation Act, has now received royal assent, so there will be some big changes in the Great White North. Section 41.‍25 of the Copyright Act is now amended with the addition of the following;

(3) A notice of claimed infringement shall not contain:

(a) an offer to settle the claimed infringement;
(b) a request or demand, made in relation to the claimed infringement, for payment or for personal information;
(c) a reference, including by way of hyperlink, to such an offer, request or demand; and
(d) any other information that may be prescribed by regulation.

Percona 推出 MySQL 8.0 的對應版本了...

Percona 在過節前推出 Percona Server for MySQL 8.0 了:「Announcing General Availability of Percona Server for MySQL 8.0」。

Oracle 版的 MySQL 8.0 多了不少功能,像是往 NoSQL 靠的功能與 GIS 相關的功能,但讓我注意到的是 Percona 自己的事情... TokuDB 因為 MyRocks 而要被放生了:

Features Being Deprecated in Percona Server for MySQL 8.0
TokuDB Storage Engine: TokuDB will be supported throughout the Percona Server for MySQL 8.0 release series, but will not be available in the next major release. Percona encourages TokuDB users to explore the MyRocks Storage Engine which provides similar benefits for the majority of workloads and has better optimized support for modern hardware.

AWS 提供 OpenVPN-based VPN 服務

不知道為什麼在 feed reader 裡面沒注意到這則,後來是在 Facebook 上看到的。

AWS 推出了 OpenVPN-based 的 VPN 服務 AWS VPN:「Introducing AWS Client VPN to Securely Access AWS and On-Premises Resources」。

看起來是這個價錢:

AWS Client VPN pricing
$0.05 per AWS Client VPN connection hour
$0.10 per AWS Client VPN endpoint association hour

所以服務本身的費用要 $72/month 左右,另外 client 接上去的費用另外算?

目前支援的區域有限,暫時只有歐美的大區:

AWS Client VPN is available in US East (Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon) and EU (Ireland) AWS Regions. Support for other AWS Regions is coming soon.

把 YouTube 對 channel 與 user 的自動播放功能關掉...

YouTube 在 channel 與 user 頁面會自動播放會讓人覺得頗困擾 (頁面一打開就有聲音),所以想要找看看有沒設定可以關掉... 找了之後發現很久前就有被問過,但是當時得到沒有這個功能的回答:「How do I DISABLE autoplay from other channels on my YouTube channel?」。

既然如此就只能找套件來解了... 目前是透過 Userscript 擋下自動播放,程式碼不長也蠻好懂的:「Disable YouTube Channel/User Home Page Video AutoPlay」。

這樣總算是不會被聲音搞到...

直接在 Ubuntu 的 Unity 上直接計算

Mac 上還蠻常直接在 Spotlight 上打簡單的算式看計算的結果,但我的桌機是在 Ubuntu 上,沒看到這個功能,所以都是用 search engine 幫忙算 (以前是 Google,現在是 DuckDuckGo),但還是想要找個類似的東西看看能不能在本機處理掉...

後來在「Can you get something like Unity Dash--especially the instant calculator--in other distros?」這邊看到 screenshot 的效果應該就是我想要的:

不過發現預設好像不會開 (跟文章裡面提到的不太一樣),所以又找了一段時間,發現在「How to permanently enable in-dash calculator in 13.10」這邊,River Satya 提到的方式是我要的:

  • Install dconf-editor sudo apt install dconf-editor
  • Run it dconf-editor
  • Open com.canonical.unity.lenses
  • Add info-calculator.scope to the always-search list
  • Profit!

改完後就會像 screenshot 出現了...
