      • University of TorontoApache 2.4′s event MPM can require more workers than you’d expect

        For our web server’s current usage, these settings are okay. But they’re unfortunately dangerous, because we allow people to run CGIs on this server, and the machine is unlikely to do well if we have even 1,000 CGIs running at the same time. In practice not many CGIs get run these days, so we’re likely going to get away with it. Still, it makes me nervous and I wish we had a better solution.

      • Rob LandleyImplementing VisiCalc

        I’m writing this in preparation for the Computer History Museum’s The Origins and Impact of VisiCalc panel on April 8th 2003. This is basically a draft and I hope to do some more editing as time permits and you should expect many typos until then. I’m also going to continue to edit and change this as I remember details.

        This is my long-delayed attempt at writing about my experience in writing VisiCalc and the many design decisions that we made along the way. But even after nearly a quarter century I remember many of the details though maybe my memories have evolved. The process of writing down this experience is already evoking many memories and, unless proven otherwise, I’ll assume that they are memories of real events but others may view it differently and I will try to correct the more creative aspects of my memory.

        Even simple decisions were only simple in context. They were all intertwined and I will try to reduce the confusion by separating aspects of implementation, design and business.

        For more details on the history of VisiCalc and even a version that still runs on the IBM PC, see Dan Bricklin’s VisiCalc History pages.

        release notes:
        === Virtual Machine Disk Images ===
        VM disk images are available for the amd64, i386, and aarch64
        architectures.  Disk images may be downloaded from the following URL
        (or any of the FreeBSD download mirrors):
        BASIC-CI images can be found at:
        The partition layout is:
            ~ 16 kB - freebsd-boot GPT partition type (bootfs GPT label)
            ~ 1 GB  - freebsd-swap GPT partition type (swapfs GPT label)
            ~ 20 GB - freebsd-ufs GPT partition type (rootfs GPT label)
        The disk images are available in QCOW2, VHD, VMDK, and raw disk image
        formats.  The image download size is approximately 135 MB and 165 MB
        respectively (amd64/i386), decompressing to a 21 GB sparse image.
        Note regarding arm64/aarch64 virtual machine images: a modified QEMU EFI
        loader file is needed for qemu-system-aarch64 to be able to boot the
        virtual machine images.  See this page for more information:
        To boot the VM image, run:
            % qemu-system-aarch64 -m 4096M -cpu cortex-a57 -M virt  \
        	-bios QEMU_EFI.fd -serial telnet::4444,server -nographic \
        	-drive if=none,file=VMDISK,id=hd0 \

We’ve seen malicious USB devices aplenty, from cables and chargers to flash drives and even suspicious USB fans. But a dock, however, is new. The gist is simple — you take a stock dock, find a Pi Zero W and wire it up to a USB 2.0 port tapped somewhere inside the dock. Finding a Pi Zero is unquestionably the hardest part in this endeavor — on the software side, everything is ready for you, just flash an SD card with a pre-cooked malicious image and go!

    • Volker KrauseFOSSGIS 2023

      Last week I attended the FOSSGIS-Konferent 2023 in Berlin
      and spoke about KDE Itinerary’s use of OSM data there.


      With three days of three parallel conference tracks with tightly packed 20 minute slots I only got to see a small
      subset of the talks, focusing on the topics most relevant for KDE Itinerary.
      Some takeaways for me:

      • OSM core data model evolution: The initial steps discussed here aren’t directly impacting KDE’s uses of OSM data yet,
        the possible improvements for more efficient and accurate tile expiry are something potentially interesting for our raw data
        tile server though (although we currently don’t implement any form of tile expire yet).
      • Indoor positioning (with GPS usually not available inside buildings there is no similarly prevalent solution yet, let
        alone one that works without needing extra infrastructure in the building and without
        requiring non-standard/not-yet-standard hardware in phones): Two possible approaches for this were presented, one using
        common inertial sensors and map matching to compensate the drift, the other using a camera and a
        SLAM-like algorithm.
        Nothing published yet unfortunately, so we have to see how well those actually perform in practice.
      • Indoor map data: I found it particularly interesting to see for which very different usecases people need
        the same kind of data, from navigating through a train station to city-scale earthquake risk assessments with a scary level of detail and accuracy.

      I also did my first major conference talk in German there, which I hopefully managed to do without using
      an English term for every other word.

    • Programming/Development

      • Patrick Jordan BeneExplaining my fast 6502 code generator

        I reckon my compiler isn’t doing more when it comes to high-level optimizations, so the gains must be from the code generation side. This makes sense, as most compilers are multi-target, with backends designed for modern RISC-like systems, not the ancient 6502. It doesn’t matter how good GCC or LLVM’s high-level optimizations are if they falter at the last leg of the race.

        Still, my compiler also beats those designed for retro and embedded systems, like VBCC, SDCC, and KickC. For this reason, it seemed like a good idea to write about my technique.

      • RlangHow fast do the files read in?

        I will demonstrate how to generate a 1,000 row and column matrix with random numbers in R, and then save it in different file formats. I will also show how to get the file size of each saved object and benchmark how long it takes to read in each file using different functions.

      • Greg Casamento: Compatibility project almost complete

        As the much villified theme for star trek enterprise says “its been a long road getting from there to here” i am almost done with all of the work that needed to be done to get us to Catalina compatibility in GNUstep. The reason this is still significant is because Apple hasn’t made many changes to either the Foundation or AppKit APIs since then. I have been workinf hard over the last three years. All of the new classes are fully tested. Once this effort is completed I am going to focus on printing, which has always been a problem in GS. And possibly a “reference” distribution.

    • Standards/Consortia

      • Ruben SchadeRyan Barrett on HTTP content negotiation

        I’ve been bitten by this before, and agree with Ryan’s thoughts:

        Content negotiation is a feature of HTTP that lets clients ask for, and servers return, different content types based on the request’s Accept header.

        Sounds great, right? Well, no. Content negotiation is the classic example of an idea that sounds good in theory, but for the vast majority of web developers, turns out to be net harmful in practice.

    • Computers Are Baddocker

      There’s been a lot of discussion lately about Docker, mostly about their boneheaded reversal following their boneheaded apology for their boneheaded decision to eliminate free teams. I don’t really care much about this event in terms of how it impacts my professional work. I long ago wrote off Docker, Inc. as a positive part of the DevOps ecosystem. But what’s very interesting to me is how we got here: The story of Docker, Docker Inc., Docker Hub, and their relation to the broader world of containerization is endlessly fascinating to me.

      How is it that Docker Inc., creator of one of the most important and ubiquitous tools in the modern software industry, has become such a backwater of rent-seeking and foot-shooting? Silicon Valley continually produces some astounding failures, but Docker stands out to me. Docker as a software product is an incredible success; Docker as a company is a joke; and the work of computing professionals is complicated by the oddly distant and yet oddly close connection between the two.

      • Slot diegetics

        The spell slot system as implemented in 5e was first seen in a video game called Wizardry; they called it “spell points” in that game but you had separate pools of “level 1 spell points”, “level 2 spell points” and so on, just like 5e’s slots.

        So for a more JRPG-like vibe, you could lean into that. Call slots spell points or mana points or magic points or whatever game you’re more familiar with—not only video games, there are other table top games that uses MP. The hack, compared the cockamamie spell point system option in the DMG, is to just keep “the separate pools per level”, just like slots work non—i.e. don’t change anything, it’s just a new name for them.

Meeker is trying to rewrite history and now we can see who her financial masters and hosts are (lots of Microsoft); The media portrayed her as some kind of historian for Free software a few months ago (as funding had been secured), but she already outsources everything to proprietary software controlled by Microsoft. This will be corporate revisionism; moreover, there’s employment history with Microsoft. As an associate put it: “The employment history with Microsoft is a dead give away that she will only spew lies and disinformation” (using books and such; the revisionism is well funded); the latest blog from the OSI is also sponsored by Microsoft (both the blog post and the person who wrote it)

  16. What Will Happen After All Major News Sites Die Isn't Pretty

    With webspam, chaff, sponsored puff pieces and worse things being presented as "the news" we're running out of actual purpose for the World Wide Web

  17. HMRC 3 Weeks Later: No Action, Same as 'Action Fraud' (Your Tax Money 'at Work')

    When people need police enforcement against a crime it turns out that police is “MIA” (missing in action); it might matter that Sirius worked with the British government, so there’s a reduced incentive to affirm crimes were committed and then arrest the perpetrators

  21. The Need to Evolve on the Internet

    Tux Machines is one year away from its twentieth birthday and its increased focus on protocols aside from HTTP/S is paying off; Tux Machines also weaned itself off all social control media, including Mastodon and Diaspora (they're not the future, they're the past)

  22. EPO Management is Still Bullying the Staff (While Breaking the Law and Violating the European Patent Convention)

    Overloaded or overworked EPO workers are complaining about further deterioration at the workplace and their representatives say "this management style may well contribute to feelings of disengagement, depression, or even burn-out"

  23. His Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) Not Responding After 20 Days (Well-Founded Report of Tax Fraud) and British Police Pretending Not to Exist

    The crimes of Sirius ‘Open Source’ have helped unearth a profound problem in the British law enforcement authorities; What good is a monopolistic taxman (called after the British Monarchy even in 2023) that cannot assess its own tax abuses? Or abuses connected to it via a contractor? Meanwhile, as per what I was told, the police is not responding to my MP and that’s ANOTHER scandal (police not only refusing to act against crimes, committed against many people, but moreover not responding to elected politicians)
