Now that the kids have finished school for the year and the holiday period looms ever closer, things will probably quieten down on the newspage for a couple of weeks. This has been an interesting year on OCAU, our first full year on XenForo after many years on vBulletin, and people seem to have adapted to it well. In fact there's been a slight but steady increase in the number of posts per day since the beginning of the year so that's a good sign. Next year OCAU will turn 20 which is amazing to think about. I haven't got anything big planned but I'm sure we'll run some contests and maybe some events towards the middle of the year. Anyway, have a happy and safe Xmas and New Year and here's to many more.

Google took a look back at the year, with their list of Top Searches for Australia. The last 12 months have included a royal wedding, the dramatic rescue of 12 boys in a Thai cave and the rolling of one Australian prime minister in favour of another. But were these events the most searched this year?

TonyR meanwhile sent in the Australian Twitter Stats for 2018. The most liked Tweet of the year in Australia was this thank you message from former Prime Minister @TurnbullMalcolm.

Intel recently had an Architecture Day. To quote HotHardware's report, This mansion setting was a perfect backdrop for Intel to underscore its new direction for the analysts and journalists in attendance. Intel has been under intense pressure due to delays of volume ramp of its 10nm process fabricated CPU products, but the company apparently has more than a few tricks up its sleeve to stay ahead of the competition in both the consumer and server markets. Mover coverage on HardOCP, Tech Report, HotHardware (3D stacked chips) and LegitReviews.

TechSpot looked into how much memory gamers really need. Today we're looking into how much RAM you need to play the latest and greatest gaming titles released this year. About this time each year we set on a memory capacity quest and last year's expedition lead us to conclude that for gamers 4GB is out, 8GB was the bare minimum, 16GB is the sweet spot and 32GB is overkill. With that, for the 2018 version we're dropping the 4GB configuration and focusing on 8, 16 and 32GB capacities.

We haven't heard much about the Supermicro spy chips story for a while, but an independent audit has apparently found no evidence of dodgy hardware. "As we have stated repeatedly since these allegations were reported, no government agency has ever informed us that it has found malicious hardware on our products," Supermicro's executives said. "No customer has ever informed us that it found malicious hardware on our products; and we have never seen any evidence of malicious hardware on our products. Today’s announcement should lay to rest the unwarranted accusations made about Supermicro’s motherboards."

OCAU Crucial Christmas Treasure Hunt! (78 Comments) (link)
 Thursday, 13-December-2018  16:17:15 (GMT +10) - by Agg

Crucial have been kind enough to provide us some goodies to give away! I've left it a bit close to Christmas so I might give away the rest in the new year, but for a quick bit of fun over the weekend I'm going to run a little treasure hunt on OCAU.

First prize pack:
- 1x Crucial P1 1TB nVME M.2 SSD (as reviewed on OCAU here, but a new one in box)
- and a dark grey Crucial polo shirt in M (the only colour/size available, sorry!)

Second prize pack:
- 1x Crucial BX500 480GB 2.5" SSD
- and a nice grey Crucial gym towel

How can you enter? At around 8PM Sydney time (AEDT) on Monday the 17th of Dec I will post a new thread in OCAU's forums. The first step will be to find that thread that I post, under my Agg account. That thread will contain 3 challenges, which will involve following instructions to find particular words or clues around OCAU. The first and second people to post the correct answers into the thread will be the winners. In the case of heavy server load or any other strange occurrences affecting the result, I will decide on the winners at the time and my decision will be final.

Note: any attempts at cheating such as posting placeholder messages and editing them later will risk you being disqualified. Remember the admins can view historical versions of edited posts.

Any questions? Ask in this thread. Otherwise, stay tuned around 8pm Monday night and good luck!

The encryption-busting legislation has been passed into law without any amendments, thanks to a last-minute deal. The bill appeared to be defeated on Thursday, the last day parliament will sit this year, until Labor leader Bill Shorten offered an olive branch to his rivals that night, agreeing to allow ALP senators to pass the bill without any of its own proposed amendments in order to empower law enforcement agencies before Christmas. The international technology community is vocally opposed to the legislation. "The new Australian law is deeply flawed, overly broad, and lacking in adequate independent oversight over the new authorities," the coalition said in a statement.

Phone scammers have been making a fortune from Australian victims. Australians were conned out of more than $800,000 in November alone as a "tsunami" of scam phone calls threatened people with arrest if they did not hand over their personal details. New figures from the Australian Taxation Office reveal more than 37,000 scam attempts were reported just last month.

The game Half-Life recently turned 20 years old. It’s only the now-simple visuals that tell you Half-Life is 20 years old. Its storytelling is so clever, subtle and perfectly pitched, it can still engross you. Half-Life taught a whole generation of big-budget game developers how to tell stories in an interactive space without continually wresting control from the player. Followed by a variety of sequels and add-ons, expanding the story and exploring new perspectives, it was also a lesson in universe building. No wonder that more than a decade since the last instalment, Half-Life 2: Episode Two, fans are still yearning for another sequel. Discussion here.

Meanwhile Doom turned 25 yesterday, and co-creator John Romero has announced some new content, named Sigil. Sigil contains nine single-player and nine deathmatch levels, and will be released for free in mid-February 2019. As a megawad, you'll need the original Doom (not the remake) to play it. Discussion in recent posts to this thread.

Still on the retro kick, it was 50 years ago this month that Douglas Engelbart gave the mother of all demos. On December 9, 1968 at a computer conference in San Francisco, Engelbart showed off the first inklings of numerous technologies that we all now take for granted: video conferencing, a modern desktop-style user interface, word processing, hypertext, the mouse, collaborative editing, among many others. Even before his famous demonstration, Engelbart outlined his vision of the future more than a half-century ago in his historic 1962 paper, "Augmenting Human Intellect: A Conceptual Framework."

NVIDIA unveiled the Titan RTX recently, which brings a new meaning to the phrase "4k video card". We don't have a hard release date on the Titan RTX as yet, but its live on NVIDIA'a Australian website (where you can also be notified about it) and it has been pegged for release in the U.S. and Europe by the end of the year. Hopefully we won't be far behind. What we do know is that the Titan RTX will set you back a cool $3,999.

The ACCC are taking a dim view of Facebook and Google's media dominance in Australia, with recommendations to control and limit their presence here. The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) has indicated the need for potential new regulations to stop major tech companies from abusing their power to the detriment of Australia’s media and digital advertising industries. In a preliminary report released today, it put forth 11 recommendations to improve oversight of the tech giants and prevent them from engaging in potentially discriminatory conduct.

Andrew sent in this story of someone DDoSing a forum and going to prison for it. OKLAHOMA CITY – DAVID CHESLEY GOODYEAR, 44, of El Segundo, California, has been sentenced to 26 months in prison for directing distributed-denial-of-service (DDoS) cyber attacks against two websites owned by Oklahoma telescope retailer Astronomics in August 2016, announced Robert J. Troester of the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Access and Accessibility Bill (0 Comments) (link)
 Thursday, 6-December-2018  12:36:06 (GMT +10) - by Agg

The Coalition and Labour have come to an agreement on the "Assistance and Access Bill" legislation, which sounds like they're going to build wheelchair ramps or something similarly nice. In fact, they want permission to break everyone's encryption. Under the terms of the deal, law enforcement agencies will not be able to issue technical capability notices for companies to build back doors unless both the attorney general and communications minister approve. The bill will contain a definition of “systemic weakness” – which companies cannot be asked to create – and stipulates that disputes about what constitutes such an impermissible back door will be determined by a former judge and a person with technical expertise. So, a back door which only the good guys can use. How can that even be a thing someone is seriously asking for? Not to mention it's yet another boot in the side of the Australian tech industry and makes us look even more backwards in the eyes of the world.

Electronic Frontiers Australia have a page showing how you can contact your representative to oppose the Bill. Computerworld have a summary of concerns from the Australian IT community.

Discussion continues in this thread.

TechSpot noticed that it's possible to overclock some low-end Athlon CPUs, thanks to a BIOS error. In an unexpected turn of events, it’s now possible to overclock the otherwise-locked Athlon 200GE processor that currently sits as the least expensive Zen-based chip you can buy, selling for about $55. In what appears to be a slip up by MSI, about two weeks ago the component maker released a new BIOS for their full range of AM4 motherboards to include support version 1.0.0.6 of AMD’s Generic Encapsulated Software Architecture, otherwise known as AGESA.

HotHardware have an interview with Intel about their discrete GPU strategy. Lest we forget, Intel is not new to graphics. Intel GPU cores, integrated into its desktop and mobile processors, push the pixels in hundreds of millions of systems. And the company has a low-power DirectX 12-class GPU already in its repertoire. Theoretically, if Intel wanted, it could simply scale up its current GPU architecture and make more powerful discrete GPUs. This is not what Intel will be doing, however. In our discussion with Ari, he specifically stated that the GPU coming in 2020 is a massive enhancement to Intel’s graphics IP, optimized for future graphics, compute, and machine learning workloads.

The expanded site-blocking legislation has been passed into law. It widens the country's existing website-blocking system by allowing copyright owners to apply for injunctions to force ISPs to prevent their customers from accessing pirate sites. Once an injunction has been granted, the ISP can block mirror and proxy sites without needing to return to court. Meanwhile, search engines such as Google and Bing are also to be held responsible for linking to banned sites, and will now be required to remove links to them, again with mirror and proxy sites included.

SpaceX launched 64 satellites in one go recently. Setting new commercial launch and satellite industry records, a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket propelled by a first stage booster launched and recovered two times before soared into a clear morning sky over California’s Central Coast on Monday with 64 small satellites, then returned to a pinpoint landing on a vessel parked offshore in the Pacific Ocean, potentially to be flown again.

MasterCard and Microsoft want to give everyone a unique digital identity. Access to a universally-recognized digital identity could unlock new and enhanced experiences for people as they interact with businesses, service providers and their community online. Kiiiinda sounds like an episode of Black Mirror, though.
