On the internet everybody should know you're a troll.
 
More and more, posts and commentaries on the Internet in Russia and even abroad are generated by professional trolls, many of whom receive a higher-than-average salary for perpetuating a pro-Kremli...

Anyone in the US need a passively cooled heatsink for their Nvidia Jetson Tegra K1 board? I've got an unopened extra. $40 shipped priority mail. Most certainly overkill, but it is one of the few that fits the board properly. (Nvidia board obviously not included)

This weekends geeky reading is brought to you by the Transputer and the language Occam. Both old things upon which many modern ideas in computing derive from. The Occam language has concepts that are now common in Python and Go and others that are still uncommon (actions are not implicitly serial).

The Transputer? Well... consider it a macro microcontroller. You can see where the idea came from at the time it was conceived but so clearly in hindsight the wrong idea to be pushing forward through the delays they faced.

It's dangerous to Wikipedia alone. Take this: ⚔

It's a pity that Atari couldn't figure out how to sell the ATW800, it was a pretty sweet machine for the time.

A brand new Panera Bread advertises 802.11*b*. In 2015. Relax, their networks appear to be n or ac but who makes their signs? And why list 802.11 at all? It is implied.

Shining some light on a few threads of the puppet strings is always fun.
Publication of a leaked secret planning document raises questions about when and how Putin might have planned the takeover of eastern Ukraine.

How are your calnative waterless nut farms coming along? It's fun to be in a drought.
 
In short, we are spending thousands of dollars worth of water to grow hundreds of dollars worth of almonds and that is truly nuts.
One of the most remarkable discoveries of economics is that under the right conditions competitive markets allocate production across firms in just that way that minimizes the total costs of production. (You can find a discussion of this remarkable property […]

Lovely evening on the Filoli House grounds & gardens today.  We had heard about the place but never been there, so when an unexpected invitation to a private event there came up we were more than happy to attend. (Thanks Erik!)

The low light really makes the flowers glow. Many of the tulips won't bloom for a couple more weeks. The ones which have are... wow.

http://www.filoli.org/ - The estate was built in 1915.

Love that place! I know some of the people who do the flower arrangements for in the house and the docent tours of the grounds. I was privileged to go on a private nature tour once of the trails in the woods behind the house. I don't think those areas are normally open to the public but they lead to all kinds of things like a nature teaching area they use for school kids, a pond, and the family cemetery. The monthly afternoon tea event is really nice too.

Need cross language RPC calls? Check out the new gRPC library. Python included (among many others, see the blog).
 
Google is open sourcing gRPC, a new library focused on efficiency and innovation in data transport across all platforms.

This view guided me home on my bike commute tonight.
 
My picture of the crescent Moon, Venus, and Mars tonight from southern California. Venus is currently more than 100x brighter than Mars.
