Yes, lets realize the Sun mantra "The network is the computer."
 
To one day get network hardware that has low latency and good queue management at gigE speeds or higher requires better hardware offloading techniques than the bulk notions like GRO and TSO that exist today. And it has long been obvious that the rate limiting + fq_codel techniques we now use successfully at sub 200mbit speeds do not scale higher well on cheap chips to handle #bufferbloat  . So the algorithms need to move into the chips, also.

******so... a brief commercial interruption****

I think the open source design method has worked spectacularly for software, and I think the same methods can work for hardware if only we can pull together larger communities to do the work, worldwide.

There are only 24 hours left on this kickstarter - we CAN start to take back the edge of the internet - if we can only find another 5k of funding. (obviously, more would be nice)

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/onetswitch/onetswitch-open-source-hardware-for-networking

This FPGA board´s pcie interface and switch design - and the split memory interfaces between the programmable logic and the onboard dual A9 core - and reducing the cost from 7000 to 700 bucks - are the important parts to why the open source community needs this board - in my case - so that more of htb + fq_codel can move into hardware that anyone can build and use - in other cases? who knows what could be done with it!?

One day, we could move the logic into asics, and finally have proven, fast, reliable, open source, binary blob-free hardware to work with for any network purpose.

There are people on these lists with money, and there are those with talent and time, and it would be great if more of those people could
line up with each other. I put in all I could spare (8500 dollars) into this kickstarter.  I have one of their high end boards, already.

It´s great.

There is a "get one give one" program that I asked meshsr (the company making the board) to put in to try and enable connecting more developers up with this board. If there is anyone here that would like to help hack together the next generation of edge network hardware, after this kickstarter completes, let me know.

I return you now to your normal despair about vendors not listening,
and crappy OSes you can´t otherwise fix. Here, have a song:

MeshSr is raising funds for ONetSwitch: Open Source Hardware for Networking on Kickstarter! Students, makers, and engineers can write Linux software applications to achieve any network functions, such as NAS, VPN and Firewall.

Too sad he is not a Senator anymore
 
Tell Sen Ron Wyden to stop Fast Track for the TPP!
Senator Ron Wyden has long been a champion of the Web, but now he's pushing a bill that's making us doubt him. Time for him to choose: in the end will he be remembered as a hero or a traitor?

Finally the wait is over and we can talk about this.

P.S.: Also includes a #jenkins plugin to scan your build and feed it straight into the Project's BOM.

Yeah, https://itunes.apple.com/de/app/porsche-car-connect/id675059864?l=en&mt=8 reminds me off the time I did my thesis at #porsche   and we stuck a Sun workstation with shock absorbing drive cages into a 944 and a Toshiba laptop into the glove compartment as console. All this to measure the forces and relative position of the car inside the vehicle.

Rant about #skype  new feature to upload images instead of transferring them directly.

It is inconvenient to login @ the browser in order to see the images

Also, images are optimized for web viewing. The optimization means that it is useless for actually sharing images, for example screenshots or photos to that you want to download and further process.

Last but not least it makes it clear that the sharing is not private, point to point anymore.

I just came across mandatory hiring related questions in the registration for a technical/sales webinar? For example:
"Are you looking for a new opportunity?" Yes / No / Not now, may be in the future
"Is your company currently hiring?" Yes / No / Not now, may be in the future

Do you find those questions appropriate? Please comment if you have an opinion
