Att implementera egna buggar i cifs/smb måste väl ändå ses som ganska driftigt?

Today, at the very same day IESG has approved HTTP/2, there are 32 implementations listed in the wiki (and I know there are more being worked on as some aren't listed yet).

And I uploaded a new revision of #http2 explained with lots of fixes.
This document describes the protocol HTTP/2 at a technical and protocol level. Background, the protocol, the implementations and the future. This is a "living document" in the sense that I keep posting updates, and I care about and value feedback, questions and comments I get about it.

While I don't see myself needing to use Git remote helpers anytime soon it's still kind of nice knowing that such customization is available. Not that we expect anything else, Git being Git.

Hamnade verkligen handfängelserna på rätt person där?

Jag insåg efter en dags läsande om denna händelse att jag ryckts med i  aftonbladetrubriken. Innan jag ens  sett filmen hade jag dömt ut vakten.

Efter att jag sett filmen så kan jag tycka att det ser hemskt ut fortfarande, men jag ser inget dunkande. Då det också rapporteras att barnen spottade, bets och sparkade så förstår jag att man håller ned huvudet och för munnen.

This is version 1.1 of the DNSSEC deployment guide for BIND. BIND is open source software that implements the Domain Name System (DNS) protocols for the Internet. It is a reference implementation of those protocols, but it is also production-grade software, suitable for use in high-volume and high-reliability applications. Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC) extends standard DNS to provide a measure of security; it proves that the dat...

An enjoyable analysis of how Arthur Conan Doyle conveyed Sherlock Holmes' genius, by the person who wrote did the same to Alan Turing in "The Imitation Game". Doyle's self-parody essay on his own cheap tricks – http://www.sherlockian.net/acd/thetrick.html – was also amusing. :-)

Like so many great things, the trick is inclusion instead of exclusion.
