PCPer your ad partners are using scripts pushed out vai the ad content to scan your fourm posts, and that includes reading any usernames/email-addresses!

The scrypts are so bad that they are locking up the foum posting system, and some are hijacking any Keystokes to launch new browser pages that link to the ad pushers content!

Even reCAPTCHA is gitting borked by naferious scrypts!

I think it's time for a little adware scanning of things including realtime scanning because it's getting past folks' firewall software. So ads that pop up intermittently on your website are sure borking things up! So no-scrypt and ad-blockers will have to be turned on if you can not stop what your ad partners are doing!

Looks like System76 is going to be making its own PCs(1) that are "Open Source", and hopefully laptops also!

Everybody and Your Dog please go to System76's webpage/blog and beg them to begin making Mini-Desktop PCs that make use of AMD's Raven Ridge APUs! OEM based Linux OS PCs/Laptops are going to be needed after the 2020-2023 time frame.

They also need to some Linux Laptops that make use of Raven Ridge H series 35W-45W cTDP APUs also.

Maybe the System76 folks should maybe want to be using some AMD products after all the Sepctre/Meltdown issues and Intel's supply issues are expected to continue for the next 12 months also.

What ever Happened to the ZBOX MA551 Mini-PC that was supposed to come with AMD Raven Ridge options inside!
And how does System76 expect to Be Open Source with only Intel and Nvidia options inside!

Hitachi develops TED-MOS and I wonder of this IP may have other power delivery uses in addition to electric motor invertors! Will there be TED-MOSs for Buildzoid to review if possible on MB's and PCIe based GPUs or Maybe just for usage in Power supplies mostly.

"An energy saving of 50% over a DMOS-FET was confirmed as the structure reduces the electric field strength, an index of durability, by 40% and resistance by 25% compared to a DMOS-FET.

Hitachi intends to apply this device in motor drive inverters which are a core component of EVs to increase energy efficiency." (1)

[It's also funny when you Google "TED-MOS" and all the Google hits come up as Ted Mosby, Fictional character of the television sitcom How I Met Your Mother]

"Hitachi develops TED-MOS"

Hitachi has developed a SiC-based ‘TED-MOS’ (Trench-Etched-Double-Diffused MOS) device using a fin-structured trench MOSFET based on the conventional DMOS-FET."
