Never had failure looked this awesome. You can just feel how difficult this is and why everyone thought it impossible, yet they're sooo close it feels just a tiny bit of tuning away.

7th of January 1996 just some guy named Lawrence (aka Larry) Page, asking on comp.lang.java how to set the User-Agent for his web crawling robot. Yeah that web crawling robot that was to become the backbone of the most successful Internet company in the world.

I have a web robot which is a Java app. I need to be able to set the. User-Agent field in the HTTP header in order to be a good net citizen (so people know who is accessing their server). Anyone have any ideas? Right now, Java sends a request that includes something like: ...

Great documentary on an international coding challenge for girls in high school. It focuses on apps that bring positive change to their communities. Really inspiring. Sadly it's only available on YouTube until today so go watch it while you can!

This is huge! With every major browser vendor on board and the combined experience from PNaCl, asm.js and emscripten this could really change the web as a platform. I wonder though what they will do to accommodate garbage collection which wasn't really needed for asm.js but would be great to support the likes of C#, Java and Go on a truly polyglot bytecode just as LLVM is getting support for garbage collection specific intrinsics.
tl;dr I'm burying the lede with context and catch-up material first, so impatient or already-clued-in readers should skip to below the videos for today's big news. Or just read Luke Wagner's blog post right now. My Fluent 2015 “ECMAScript Harmony: Rise of the Compilers” talk given on April 21st: ...

Congratulations go to ESA, this is truly amazing! Great engineering indeed. I'm definitely looking forward to new data from the surface of a comet :)
The European Space Agency says its comet lander, Philae, has woken up and contacted Earth.

An autonomous barge is sailing to a destination 200 km off the Florida coast to serve as the landing pad for a rockets first stage that will be returning from near space after boosting a space freighter on it's way to a manned space station. Even with less than a 0.5 success probability the fact this is even attempted blows my mind. We are indeed living the future of science fiction.

You still think Computer Science is a dull subject only man are good at? Think again, it was a woman who led the team that developed code that wound up saving Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin from crashing into the moon.

Ate here today for maybe the third or fourth time with consistently good experiences. Had Ox with fried potatoes and can absolutely recommend this dish, the meat was tender and very tasty and I've seldomly eaten potatoes of this quality in southern Germany.

This place has terrible service and it's overcrowded beyond any safety margins. Me and two friends let them store our jackets and when I tried to get back only one of them (having all 3 bons) to leave earlier the servicing person refused even when offered a generous tip and I had to walk home in pretty cold weather.

Only had a raspberry lemonade bit it was certainly delicious. Everything seems to be organic too.

Wonderful park with beautiful small lakes and streams. Great place to relax, the only negative thing I can think of is the sound of the trains going by.

Finally found good coffee after almost a week of on average really bad coffee that was strong but extremely lacking in aroma. The French press for two with blend selection is such a relief and the price is fair too.

Beware there are no power sockets or free wifi at the gate! In this day and age I would consider that an essential part of airport infrastructure more important than all duty free shops and cafés combined so that means 1 star rating.
