Oh, additionally FWIW (possibly not much) -- I have an acquaintance who owns/runs a medium to large privately owned ISP in the Chicago area. And his personal spin on this topic is the "lack of IPv4 addresses" is unlikely to ever be an issue. There are so many chunks that people are squatting on, and so many devices being assigned real IPv4 that don't need them.

There are a number of hacks in the works at isps to alleviate this issue somewhat, like "Carrier Grade NAT", which my ISP recently started using.

This is a direct negative consequence of not switching to ipv6 sooner, as carrier grade NAT is prohibitive in a number of different ways. The way carrier grade NAT works, it could switch your IP address multiple times a day, and break simple things like port forwarding. This conflicts with running a home/remote server as well.

I had to call and discuss issues I was having with my internet with my ISP to find out they had switched to this recently, and it was the source of the issues I was having. They switched me back to standard upon request, but they ask for a reason when you do this. I simply told them I stream media from my home computer to my portable tablets/devices and needed proper NAT for this to work properly. No problems since.

I looked in to it, and many carriers across the country are switching over to patchwork solutions like this, and this is indeed a cause for concern with the limited abilities of solutions like "Carrier Grade NAT".
As more people go online and more iots devices get into consumer hands the "lack of IPv4 addresses" will definitely be a thing. If is inevitable.

Decrim of pot is a good step. Portugal decriminalized all drugs 15 years ago. Result: less drug use, addicts more likely to seek help, HIV cases plummet, many fewer incarcerations, etc. etc. I like this quote:

"I think harm reduction is not giving up on people," said Goulão. "I think it is respecting their timings and assuming that even if someone is still using drugs, that person deserves the investment of the state in order to have a better and longer life."

The "war on drugs" in the US has been a costly, tragic unmitigated disaster by any measure. We need to follow the example of Portugal.

I'm not for what's "good" or what's "bad." I'm for what works.
Ain't never gonna happen. The "War On Drugs" is BIG Business.
In a 2011 interview, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that legalization is “not likely to work” because “there is just too much money in it.” Clinton was talking about cartels, but the same holds true for the legal industries that owe their profit margins, market shares, and—in some cases—very existence to the war on drugs. http://reason.com/archives/2012/04/22/4-industries-getting-rich-off-the-drug-w

I feel like Fortnite is the first big PC game this place has completely missed the trend on. A few people here occasionally say they enjoy it, but there's no real mention of it. But it's the biggest thing in gaming right now, with kids being utter lunatics for it.

I can't think of a single major video game trend this place has basically ignored. Even Pokemon Go had more enthusiasm around here.

Anandtech's gaming bench numbers seem to be more than a little out-of-whack with numbers that other sites are getting...

They claim to have benched with the Meltdown and Spectre fixes, which seem to have gimped Intel's offerings, while leaving these new AMD's largely unaffected. That could be a reason to see the numbers sway so wildly, but people in the comments sections don't seem convinced of that.
I thought Meltdown and Spectre fixes would not affect gaming.
If only one site is an outlier I would not trust their results.

I thought that the Melt/Spec fixes DID affect gaming. That was the whole thing about the story when it broke that Intel dun fucked up, that implementing the fixes would see significant dips in gaming performance. I think the Spectre fix in particular is more damaging in this respect, the Meltdown should be done automatically by the OS if you're up-to-date, while Spectre has to be deployed through a bios update by the mobo vendor. I think???
Anandtech knows there is an issue and posted this;
Update: A number of comments have noted that some of our gaming numbers are different to other publications. To clarify, we used the latest ASUS 0508 BIOS (on X470), full Windows RS3 + updates, Spectre/Meltdown patches, and updated gaming titles. We are reviewing the data.
It will be interesting to see the outcome.
