Die Seniorin Frau M. ist auf dem Heimweg. Sie kommt gerade von der Tafel in ihrem Stadtteil und hat sich Lebensmittel besorgt. Sie hat noch ein paar leere Pfandflaschen dabei die sie im Supermarkt abgeben will. Es ist Monatsmitte und die karge Rente reicht wieder vorn und hinten nicht.

Check out Gentleman Stark, a steampunk IronMan illustration by concept artist Anthony Jones! http://goo.gl/GXhZI8

"After donating his heart to save his only son Jarvis, Jarvis devoted his life to engineering to bring his father back to life. Picking up his father’s work, he found an alternative power source that could bring him back. Preserving his body in a deep freeze incubator, Jarvis spent 10 years of his young adult life to engineer a mechanized suit using the power of steam to breathe life to his father."

Awesome
Earlier this year, Console Wars: Sega, Nintendo, and the Battle that Defined a Generation author Blake J. Harris offered us a peek inside the official Nintendo Character Manual from 1993 where we learned such fascinating facts about classic Nintendo heroes and villains such as Yoshi's real name (T. Yoshisaur Munchakoopas) and mushroom retainer Toad's original hometown (he has family in the Fungus Federation). Now Blake has provided PTB with more ...

Anders Hejlsberg gave an excellent tech talk while the TypeScript folks from Microsoft were visiting just before Thanksgiving. The talk is up on YouTube now so you can enjoy it too.

Facebook's recent open-source data stores: TAO and F4

TAO - Distributed memory cache for social graph (I guess companies with 2 billion users can't stick the whole social graph in a few GB of RAM :)

F4 - Media storage. Interestingly they distinguish by "hot" (recently created and therefore in heavy use) and "warm" media. (A bit like AWS's glacial storage, which would naturally be "cold" on this spectrum.) F4 is the "warm" store. In contrast to the "hot" Haystack store, it doesn't need to be optimised for fast replacements.

Oh and btw this blog has a ton of useful summaries of AWS tech too (links https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=8480644)
