WHO: Computer game addiction gets status as a mental disorder

Monday, June 18, 2018

In the latest international update of the WHO list of mental disorders, “Gaming Disorder” is categorized as a personal disorder. The World Health Organization believes that this will help the world’s country do more to identify the problem so that it contributes to better public health.

The decision is scientifically based, says the head of the WHO Department of Mental Health, Shekhar Saxena. He also says that in many parts of the world both the need for and demand for treatment for such game addiction is alike.

Critics believe that WHO’s decision can lead to unnecessary concern among parents, as well as stamping children and young people who spend time on computer games.

Others hope that this will cause the problem to be taken more seriously. They emphasize the importance of detecting game addiction quickly as children and young people at risk do not usually seek help on their own.

Roskilde municipality, 107 servers went down for counting: The municipality lost 82,000 public documents

Saturday 2 June 2018

The error should have occurred in a storage rig provided by Hitachi.

Two errors in two minutes

First the main desk went down. So two minutes later, the backup solution went down with the same mistake, KMD states in a document that the Danish online newspaper has accessed.

– It all resulted in 107 servers going down for counting. Three of these belonged to the municipality of Roskilde, named in the document. It was only the Danish municipality that lost data in the incident.

Error in code line

The data loss affected 16 325 inhabitants. 10 179 of these had active cases with the municipality, where the case papers were lost.

According to KMD, there should be an error in a code line that made sure that the backup did not work properly.

The reason why this has not been discovered is that the code error, which has been found retrospectively, has made it seem as if the systems worked as they should, is stated in the statement.

This code error thus made sure that no backup of the data has been produced and they are lost forever, writes Version2.

Wednesday, May 30, 2018

Soon it is 40 years since 8086 was introduced. The VideoChardz website writes that retailers have begun bringing up Intel i7-8086K in the range.

Turbo at 5 GHz

On June 8, 1978, Intel launched the iconic 8086 processor and it is the one honored with a new launch. According to reports, this jubilee process will actually be more powerful than the i7-8700K top processor, which has clock speeds of 3.7 GHz (base) and 4.7 GHz (turbo), respectively.

i7-8086K clocks at 4.0 GHz (base) and full 5.0 GHz in turbo, writes the site. Otherwise, the two processors share similar features as 12 threads, 12 MB L3 cache memory, LGA 1151-2 socket and a 14-nanometer process. The number of kernels is not confirmed, but is likely to be six.

At the price it appears that the newcomer will be somewhat more expensive than i7-8700K. Some online stores have set a price of $ 480, which in the US is $ 70 more than i7-8700K. In Norway, the latter processor starts at around NOK 3400.
