Fffuuuuu, wow, bpftrace looks amazing,
_bpftrace uses existing Linux kernel facilities (eBPF, kprobes, uprobes, tracepoints, perf_events), as well as bcc libraries. Internally, bpftrace uses a lex/yacc parser to convert programs to AST, then llvm IR actions, then BPF._
Pixel Slate's keyboard is $200. Which is hella expensive. I'd be ok /w this, but it doesn't work unless physically connected to the slate, & that's not how I usually compute. Bluetooth keyboard below, display way up, so I'm not hunched over looking down.
I'm also not a fan of hingeless designs, not a fan of the flap. Sometimes I do have to work on my lap, yet it seems like everyone is building hardware you need a table for.
I continue to think I own the best laptop on the planet. 5 years old, & unmatched.
Ugh is this love? Please no. I may be in love with a Furyan.
Loving having some insight into how Apple devices communicate. It's tragic beyond belief that local adhoc networking is still so crude & proprietary.
One Billion Apples' Secret Sauce: Recipe for the Apple Wireless Direct Link Ad hoc Protocol:
The WiFi Alliance created Neighbor Awareness (aka WiFi Aware) that I think delivers somewhat similar p2p connectivity. Oh look, you can now download the technical docs! That's new!
loving AMD's work with ryzen. ECC everywhere is fantastic. motherboards coming in under $70 is exciting & seems natural when so so much is on package.
alas the lack of server-style BMC in their lineup is super sad, and many of the super interesting mid power 65W/45W cores seem like they'll never be generally available.
hopefully AMD & motherboard makers can take their current success & keep expanding it's reach.
"Big news for Pulsar: we're now officially a Top Level Project!"
Doesn't seem like anyone else is making headway undoing the too-tightly-coupled, highly-unflexible aspects of one of the most important pieces of software out there, #ApacheKafka, & I'm delighted #ApachePulsar is doing such a good job.
Doing message queueing atop the flexible #ApacheBookshelf project is a perfect fit.
"If you meet a healer PLEASE do yourself a favor and complete their sidequests so you can marry them as soon as possible. They are very rare."
Roommates bought their own AP's & I spent a while re-connecting all the Chromecast devices, twice. Can confirm, slow process is slow!
Samsung talking NVM & snia kV apis, #sdc18,
PCIe P2PDMA talk at #sdc2018, and hopefully more general good news & upstreamingness in Linux PCIe,
Intel talking up ceph over nvme-of. It's funny still having any intermediary at that point but ceph sure is a friendly & useful middle layer to keep doing, #sdc18,
Alibaba working on an SSD controller that does either nvme or openchannel, yes please, #sdc18,
Stop spending money @jauntywunderkind420! Wow!
Angel/demon on shoulders warring over whether to buy a 1.1kWh semi-exotic low-temperature battery pack off ebay for $400. A pull from a car. I want it for an outdoor solar hotspot project, but heck no I don't need it.
A reasonable me would spend <$100 on a modest LifePO4 pack. Low-temp handling would be adequate. Would have plenty of juice.
But I could have SO MUCH juice for a relative steal, & in an invincible exotic cell chemistry! For only 4x more!
It's so crazy that we're already in a post-Extensible Web Manifesto era. I've forgotten the name of it a couple times already, so posting somewhat just to help myself remember, but the Layered API sort-of-manifesto proposes ditching the "work on low-level pieces" focus the web has had, & building standards & platform more integratively & vertically, & that's an interesting twist after such a large & loud outcry to try to keep it simple, to make only #BaseMaterials,
Apache Arrow showing a TON of activity. Their new "Flight" gRPC system for data IPC (their intro talks about it like a ODBC/JDBC for columnar data) has a lot of activity, https://github.com/apache/arrow/pull/2547 ! Gandiva- enabling llvm computed vector processing- is getting close to mergable. https://github.com/apache/arrow/pull/2558
I am a little nervous cause I kind of like the old Plasma shared-memory object-passer. Flight is copy-to-write, whereas Plasma should be zero copy fully, I think? Flight looks set to takeover.
Early cybernetic lifeform, going beyond re-inventing to make virtualforms we can endlessly settle into.
