Inklings in March 2007
Also to buy.
Kick ass! The Prags are publishing a book by Mr. Erlang himself, Joe Armstrong.
Niall IM’d this to me. Sums up a lot, I think.
mod_evasive is an evasive manoeuvres module for Apache to provide evasive action in the event of an HTTP DoS or DDoS attack or brute force attack. It is also designed to be a detection and network management tool, and can be easily configured to talk to ipchains, firewalls, routers, and etcetera. mod_evasive presently reports abuses via email and syslog facilities.
Lua/FastCGI based web application framework
Should work with a couple of small tweaks on FreeBSD.
FDUPES is a program for identifying or deleting duplicate files residing within specified directories.
Thunk! Thunk! Thunk! Thunk!
Been dealing with this at work too.
A pre-publication copy of James Shore’s forthcoming book ‘The Art of Agile Development’. Good overview, even if you’ve not interested in XP or agile development in general.
Sweet! New work wallpaper.
Puzzled why Bill didn’t publish this in the first place. Good clear explaination of what resources and respresentations are, and it’s nice to see my slightly glib though far from insincere explaination of ‘hypertext as the engine of application state’ confirmed.
Capitalists are only capitalists as long as it’s to their advantage. As soon as it’s not, they turn into corporate socialists.
Too damned true.
When it’s done, it’ll be capable of compiling PHP down to native code.
One of the nicest things about PHP is custom tags. It’s nice to be able to do much the same thing in Ruby with blocks.
How to build and use ETags for maximum effect.
Right on, captain!
This is brilliantly evil!
Didn’t know about this paper. Go read Backus’s lecture too while you’re at it.
This should be read by anybody contemplating using XML namespaces. It explains how to use them without being a bozo.
A classic, go read it if you haven’t already.
Kick ass! ArcElite and Hamsters are there, along with Phaethon and a bunch of other great ones. Now all I have to do is figure out where I can get an Archimedes emulator that’ll run on FreeBSD…
About the making of the single best game ever create: Elite.
FFS! If this is what’s been causing SVK to dump core each time I do anything with it, I’ll be mightily pissed off.
