Another of the many reasons to vote for Bernie he won't flip flop like Hillary will. She was for it until Bernie said he was against it.

When a Google project uses leet naming, you know it will kick ass
 
syzkaller is a linux kernel fuzzer, and it is finding TONS of bugs. the whole "given enough eyeballs, all bugs are shallow" is clearly total bs, since there aren't many eyeballs at all. but with this, maybe there's some hope to get a kernel that is substantially more secure and less crashy.

RIP Marvin Minsky :(

Zen-like anecdote from Tossrock:

In the days when Sussman was a novice, Minsky once came to him as he sat hacking at the PDP-6.
"What are you doing?", asked Minsky.
"I am training a randomly wired neural net to play Tic-tac-toe", Sussman replied.
"Why is the net wired randomly?", asked Minsky.
"I do not want it to have any preconceptions of how to play", Sussman said.
Minsky then shut his eyes.
"Why do you close your eyes?" Sussman asked his teacher.
"So that the room will be empty."
At that moment, Sussman was enlightened.

A library and opera house straddling the US-Canadian border ~ the only "library without books" and "opera without a stage" (those parts were on the Canadian side). Must see next time I'm in the area!

DNS based Internet censorship in Indonesia: turns out if the site in question is not meant for interactive consumption they don't redirect to an error page but to 127.0.0.1. Yuck.

It can also be ISP matters, e.g. a wifi prompt or user has reached their quota. Wish there were more standards (well there's status code 451 but i doubt it's used much).

The difference between a trade association (501 (c) 6) and a charitable foundation (501 (c) 3) couldn't be more obvious here
 
The Linux Foundation is an industry organisation dedicated to promoting, protecting and standardising Linux and open source software [1]. The majority of its board is chosen by the member companies - 10 by platinum members (platinum membership costs $500000 a year), 3 by gold members (gold ...

When birther and originalism blows back...
 
In an ironic twist of fate, it turns out that Hawaii is considered US soil (where Obama was born), while Canada is not in fact US soil.

"At common law, “natural born” meant someone born within the sovereign territory with one narrow exception. The exception was for children of public officials serving abroad, which does not help Cruz because his parents were not serving the United States when he was born in Canada. The case of John McCain was entirely different because he was born in a U.S. territory (the Panama Canal Zone) and to U.S. parents who were serving the U.S. military."
The closer you study the Constitution, the weaker Ted Cruz's case squares with the actual meaning of "natural-born"

Went downhill in recent years. Too crowded and there's nothing to do but eat. Bad parking availability too. Nearby Kemang Village is much better.

Delightful hors d'oeuvres, though the tenderloin was... lacking in tenderness

The most authentic Spanish restaurant in Jakarta by far, serving a wide range of pintxos and tapas, as well as larger dishes such as paella. Came for brunch and would have to go back with a larger group to cover more of the menu!

Overpriced, badly prepared (though decently plated) food and drink, overly loud music with thumping bass reminiscent of a cheap club. This place banks only on its location on top of Jakarta's tallest building. If you're not an impressionable yuppie, avoid this place.

Nice place for gadget window-shopping, and the iBox service center there is probably the most competent in town for Apple products. Decent food vendors too (Outback is downstairs). For accessories, Mangga Dua still offer better prices.
