The recent Intel debacles compel me to narcissistically share this interview I did with Colin Percival on hyperthreading problems back in 2005.

Folks told Intel this was a bad idea more than a decade ago. They did not fix their shit.

I've disabled HT on every machine ever since. They called me mad, but now I'm all "u mad?"

Theo's right. Disable HT all around.

Even if i scroll down, incoming toots drag my view back up instantly; i can't look at any toot for more than 1/10th of a second. That can't be how it's supposed to work, right

I'm still trying to figure out how to use Mastodon from a philosophical level. I like that mastodon.social is diverse, but the firehose is overwhelming.

A more focused instance seems like it'd be more manageable, but could lead to silos, or pigeonhole me into one specific interest group.

I thought maybe federation was the answer to this, but I think it just adds to the deluge of toots?

What is the Right Way to handle this? I keep thinking I'm missing something obvious.

please consider my personal commercial interests when choosing a social media platform, thk u!
