It would apepar that Comcast is having some difficulty today, although I am having trouble finding details.  What I'm seeing is lots and lots of timeouts for anything not peered in Chicago, basically nuking the entire Internet except for certain large properties that have CDN endpoints in Chicago (e.g. Twitter, some Google properties), and anything with an IPv6 address because we have an Hurricane Electric tunnel and that tunnel has an endpoint in Chicago.

At first I thought this had something to do with the new modem we installed yesterday, but I'm starting to doubt that.  Amusingly enough, Netflix isn't affected: the Chromecast Netflix application uses IPv6 preferentially, so I can still stream Netflix over Hurricane Electric and avoid all of Comcast's problems.

Of course, none of Comcast's websites have IPv6 addresses, so I can't get any information from Comcast on what is actually going on.  I could try calling their customer service number, but history suggests that doing so will not actually provide me any additional information.  Maybe they'll reply to one of my tweets.

I enjoyed this article.  I don't necessarily agree with it, but it was fun to read.  Comments encouraged; feel free to tear the author's thesis (or even the author) to shreds.
Of all the strands of geek culture, gamers have always seemed to be the group most likely to explode in anger at challenges to their subculture. Like all geek culture, that culture is little more than the consumption of media as a means of identity formation. Gaming media, of course, ...

Greg Kohs, of wikipediocracy.com, compiled this marvelous "Full Spectrum of Jimmy Wales" photospread out of public images of Jimmy Wales.  Regardless of your feelings about Jimmy Wales and of Wikipedia, I think this is an awesome little montage that I just had to share.  Enjoy.

(And I'd be totally chuffed to see other subjects given the same treatment.)

+Kelly Martin I just saw your most recent post at http://wikipediocracy.com/forum/posting.php?mode=reply&f=8&t=5301

I've been carefully monitoring all the articles in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WP:SPVA
every three months for more than two years, and I can say with complete certainty that they are, taken as a whole, improving. They grow on average at six bytes per day, and only about 4% have declined in quality relative to the previous quarter. Usually about 71% have improved in some way over the past three months.

If you suggest a different sample set, I can perform the monitoring process I usually do on it and let you know the results.

I spent much of today trying to get my Haskell toolchain into order, in preparation for actually starting to do development again. In the past I've used the EclipseFP plugin to Eclipse, and since I still have it installed I figured I’d just update it and the underlying Haskell tools it needs.

Updating EclipseFP was easy. Unfortunately, the GHC toolchain it uses was less cooperative. There is a problem of some sort with scion-browser not getting along with persistent, which prevents me from actually building any version of scion-browser. I’ve tried a half dozen different combinations, and none has worked.

Tomorrow, I will look into alternate IDE options for Haskell.

+Michael Parker It was actually a "Kentucky Mule": whiskey, ginger beer, and peach juice of some sort. I'm going to have to experiment more with using ginger beer as a mixer now, because it was a good drink.
