What chipset are you using? AMD went back on the original announcment with plans to allow board partners to support 4000 series on B450. So...

I'd be happy with 1000/100 for the price. But I'm in the same boat, can't justify the extra costs as upload is my biggest pain point.

Depends which board you have. The socket will be the same (AM4), but it will depend on your chipset. Initially AMD said they wouldn't...

WSL works pretty well for any of the dev tools I've thrown at it. Certainly easier than a dual boot and less taxing than a VM. Good to have...

You'll also have the advantage of a GPU for building AI models. Mine is a couple of years old now, so it only has a GTX 1050, but it's much...

Are you sold on the 13 inch form factor. I used an XPS 13 2 in 1 for a month before changing to an XPS 15. Screen is just too small for me...

This is my strategy as well. XPS 15, Windows 10 as the main OS, WSL for any linux based work or dev tools.

Fragrance being Citrus Vomit in this case

You also mentioned 4K video. Going AMD at this point brings the possiblity of PCI Gen 4. And fastest possible NVME storage speeds.

We have 25 devs, 90% use Dell XPS's of one description or another, 10% holding out on Surface Book/Pro. Have a couple of Macbooks in a...

Up to you, I have shucked and unshucked. Unschuked is sometimes a good option, as it's cheaper, you maintain the warranty, and it's often...

I was enjoying the original until I got sidetracked by something else in my list and never came back. Not about to pay for a new coat of...

It's Wheels magazine. Every page is an ad page. And every article is an attempt to felatte an auto-maker and get more ad revenue.

Big W aren't selling Doom Eternal (PC or it doesn't exist)

Says fast shipping from Sydney 1-2 days before release. I'm happy with that.

Bought for PC. Add it to the pile of games I've bought and not yet played.

JB Hifi were nice enough to price match (same company) which saved me doing click and collect, and I grabbed a different colour (Unicorn)...

If you still have a year to go then by all means start applying for graduate programs. But realise it might not be the right time to look...

Half the problem is recruiters. Artificially inflating wage expectations in the hope of higher commission. We're often offered junior...

Judging by their products, I'd be surprised if Atlassian hired anyone but graduates :P
02/03/2020 - 14:42
I wouldn't be surprised if it's less. The company is taking a lot of risk and investing a lot in training for a graduate (who may well...

My advice is to look around at what business is using and what you want to focus on: For example, when I finished my Software Engineering...

Considering 10 Tenders for $10 is currently available in the app currently you definitely got ripped off.

You mean "Ersatz Maple Flavoured Syrup" Any Maple 'Flavoured' Syrup should not be encouraged.

Since I posted this I received an email from Exetel telling me the old plan price is unsustainable, so they are putting the price up (a bit...

I'd also consider the Barista express, it's cheaper and the grinder is a great bonus. Have had one in my workplace for three years now,...
22/01/2020 - 14:35
I agree with this, apart from the ISP's dropping prices part. I am about to move home and had a rude shock seeing where things are at now,...

Shame the 2TB price is still so high. Going to have to keep looking.
