AMD has detailed its roll-out plan for forthcoming desktop and laptop Ryzen CPUs with integrated graphics based on the Vega micro-architecture. The company revealed its plans on the first day of the CES trade show in Las Vegas, Nevada where it also pinned April as the launch date for its second-generation of Ryzen desktop PC CPUs, which will be built to a 12nm process architecture and should slot-in to existing Ryzen-compatible AM4 motherboards. In truth, the Ryzen reveals are somewhat marginal.
@Baz13631842@ProgContra@Arron_banks I've just taken a train into London - it seriously wasn't. I train it to/from Manchester and Birmingham frequently. They are rarely "seriously overcrowded" either. Certain peak times, maybe, but no sensibly run organisation budgets for excess capacity at peak times.
@Baz13631842@ProgContra@Arron_banks Which isn't to say that trains don't have a role to play in any sensible transport network/strategy - I simply question what I see as the fetishisation of public transport, including trains.
@Baz13631842@ProgContra@Arron_banks People are happy to pay for those "metal boxes" and fund everything they need many times over, and within 10-20 years they will be electric and possibly self-driving; they don't seem very willing to pay the full cost of trains (or buses, for that matter).
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
