HTTP 451: Censored: "[This HTTP status] gives a way to build systems to track censorship, and we've already seen discussions about leveraging 451 to prompt the user to try accessing the content in a different way"
 
HTTP error code 451 approved: An HTTP status code to report legal obstacles. 
Today, the IESG approved publication of "An HTTP Status Code to Report Legal Obstacles". It'll be an RFC after some work by the RFC Editor and a few more process bits, but effectively you can start using it now. Tim...

HTTPS anywhere What people forget about SSL is that it’s not about encryption. Well that’s one feature of secure sockets, another really essential one is integrity insofar as it gives us confidence that the website content hasn’t been manipulated. Anything you load over an HTTP connection can be easily changed by a man in the middle which is why it’s absolutely essential to load those login forms over a secure connection"

Grausame Bibel "Schläft einer mit einem Mann, wie man mit einer Frau schläft, dann haben sie eine Gräueltat begangen; beide werden mit dem Tod bestraft" (Leviticus 20,13).

Die allermeisten Christen kennen die Bibel ja nur in der Kinderversion, und kümmern sich im Alltag nicht drum, was da nun steht oder nicht. Gleichzeitig aber glaubt man, dass Moslems alle Koran-Kenner und -Exegeten sind. Was also wenn man Passanten mal die Bibel als Koran verkauft?

Die Dreifaltigkeit gab es schon vor den Griechen. Alt-Perser und Babylonier, bis zu den Ursprüngen der Menschheit gibt es die Dreifaltigkeit, weil Einfältigkeit.

Aus dem Blickwinkel des Ostens war die feierliche Errichtung Konstantinopel durch Konstantin (christlicher Kaiser) wohl das bestimmende Ereignis welches die Politik, Gesellschaft und das Recht prägte. Das war wie Internet 2.0 .

Design for large monitors "When I started exploring layouts, it became clear very quickly that there is a lot of scope when it comes to width. Using some of that width for navigation could leave more height for content and the page itself. One responsive pattern seemed most appropriate: Comeback of the left-hand navigation"

Optimized Compression: "It's a smaller file to send over the wire, and the smaller the file, the faster the decompression. This is free bandwidth, people! It doesn't get much better than this!"

Also read the comments.
02 Jan 2016. Zopfli Optimization: Literally Free Bandwidth. In 2007 I wrote about using PNGout to produce amazingly small PNG images. I still refer to this topic frequently, as seven years later, the average PNG I encounter on the Internet is very unlikely to be optimized.

A thorough critic of Single Page Apps: "Business logic does not belong in the client, unless you like having to redundantly maintain the same logic in every kind of client you support (in addition to maintaining it on the server, of course — remember that you can never trust any client). From a server-side viewpoint, the best architecture you can have is the one you could (and should) have built a decade ago: following REST principles, including stateless communication and identification of resources."

Microservices: "In 2015, a peak in microservices was reached: there is no conference without a Netflix engineer to sell you a dream, not a week without new magic framework to do it all without asking any question. [...] It therefore seemed useful to us to review the architectural aspects of microservices, because choosing a style of architecture for an information system has structural consequences on projects lifecycle and company organization."

Good write-up on pro and cons of microservices.
In 2015, a peak in microservices was reached: there is no conference without a Netflix engineer to sell you a dream, not a week without new magic framework to do it all without asking any question. Result: a focus on the tools and beautiful stories rather than substantive issues.

Ah ah ah +Oliver Thoms​. You are so right. I agree with you but let's keep in mind that those are tools or strategies. They totally depend on how good people use them.

Your agile project management gave me a good laugh though.

Microservices are good but should be used when/where required. Not just for the fun of it.

VTech Data Breach "Despite their assurances that their system is now secure, they still have gaping holes that allow every kid to be matched with every parent. The details of this have been passed on to VTech and I’ll say this much here: there’s no simple fix. The flaws are fundamental and the recommendation I’ve passed on is to take it offline ASAP until they can fix it properly. "

Story
Tagline
Co-Founder of Audisto
Introduction
Starting way back in the early 80s with Basic on the C64 I quickly moved to Assembler to get things done. I still have a copy of the complete C64 ROM listing. 

After visiting Visual Basic, the Windows API, C++ and QT, I'm now happy as a web and backend developer, doing Scala, PHP, Python and still C++.

I'm the programmer of both the backend and frontend of Audisto, a web service to crawl and analyze entire web sites giving helpful insights to make them better for users.

I released PHP application framework Gyro-PHP as open source a while ago.

Gutes Essen, nettes Personal. Wir waren zu zweit da, und hatten zunächst Schnecken und Zunge mit Kapern. Beides köstlich! Die Schnecken waren in Rinderbrühe gekocht, und wir haben mehr als 30 gezählt. Auch die Zunge war reichlich. Als Hauptgang nahmen wir gegrilltes Kaninchen und gegrillte Tintenfische. Lecker! Das Kaninchen war komplett und von den Sepias gab es zwei. Beilage jeweils einige Pommes Frittes, aber nicht zu viel. Als Nachtisch machte eine Creme Caramel das Essen perfekt. Die nette Bedienung machte den Abend perfekt.
