Refactored #069: “Days Since Last Rona”

On this episode of Refactored…

  • A three week hiatus?!?!?! It was a team effort:
    • Chris rides the Rona and has a rough go of it for two weeks - is he stupid, weak, or both?
    • Frank successfully fails to record the first attempt at 69 (nice).
  • The guys talk $1T Bitcoin, the Etherium PoS merge, fractional reserve banking, stablecoins, UST depegging, and market volatility.
  • Frank buys a new PC with a RTX3070 in it a new RTX3070 with the rest of a computer wrapped around it. Chris can’t remember the name of Fractal Design, which has been his choice of case for his last several builds.
  • The guys talk device/software pricing. Is a subscription for features on a discrete device fair?
  • Chris complains that GitLab breaks something (again) but it’s ok because the community is awesome: point and case. Yay GiLab! Yay open source!
  • The picks of the week are Origin PC custom gaming rigs, the reMarkable 2 paper tablet, and Apple’s AirPods Pro.
  • … and much more!
