Samsung taking the exact opposite approach of Apple trying to push the world on towards IPv6, filtering IPv6 for all non-awake (screen not on) devices,

Wow. This is abysmal, going to cause a decade of pain and suffering even if they immediately stop shipping this broken buggy busted behavior and start shipping fixes.

I could maybe de-hard drive this colo box before sending it back & equip it with the quasi-bleeding edge radeon (radeon 285, new tonga pro/gcn 1.2) but it'd still be kind of near permitted power budget if it does get used. And just as importantly, they are offered in stealth form factor, in not huge ranks of bigass bigfan-ned form factors: it wouldn't look like a power drinking beast. But I don't want to de-hard drive it. It's going to continue to look like a seed-boxy thing.

The nutso part is, I could stuff it full of chromeboxes and it would be well under the power budget. Were I further motivated to go there, for 150% more I could even load it full of 0.5TB ssds that would sum out to the levels of storage already present, for little budging in that budget.

Old Steam showed network I/O when updating. New Steam shows network I/O and disk I/O. What a huge improvement! There was always such mystery- why is this slow, what is happening, is my ISP messing with me?

Being able to see the systems is what concretizes the virtual into something which is real. Without operational tooling, without feedback to see what is happening, technology is magic. That's good enough to sell products, but it's not good enough to keep us human.

Recently, network monitoring ought be a service available to end users, and being perpetual victim to spooky action a distance,

Analysis #1: Trump is a characture the Democrats erected to make Republicans look like the filthy unthinking fleshbags they may well be.
Analysis #2: Trump is a smokescreen of the Repubs set up to keep any and all attention away from their party of zany nutbags catering to deep human loathing
Analysis #3: Trump is either being paid or happily floated by a media that could not be more delighted some useless positionless bag of hot air is pushing us towards an Idiocracy style campaigning built around making as many enemies as possible as fast as possible and being a bigger blow hard then all of them. Trump vs POWs? Trump blows harder. Way to blow Trump, way to blow.

Ghastly, but fuck, we deserve this wretchedness, we deserve it so fucking hard, and we have had it coming, and oh thank the mercies it's out in the open and now we can see what the enemy- as he dwells within us- and fix ourselves. To all of you enthusiastic- to merely burn alive does not suffice how anti-intellectually, pro-vaccuous gas-baggerific-ally your present family tree deserves to be sterilized, sterelized and mocked as useless ignorant turds that couldn't recognize a sound coherent causal consideration were the happenstancing of it to bean you in the head or perhaps more noticeable to you, junk.

This is Ronald Reagan part 2, the re-extra-retarding, minus a party that has any cares at all for this country, and right now a huge number are biting. Not that I am that exordinately distressed, given the wash of uselessness Trump stands among- sure, why the frak not- but I'd like to think at some point we start realizing character and nuance and deliberation are integral to leadership, that bravadio and loudness and supplication are not alone enough- this man sells to the dumbest, and right now no one has filled in those sold what a horrible sinker it is they've bitten on to.

Was idly thinking a grimdark betting pool on ocean rises would be interesting. Now linked (warning, Slate) this-
The study—written by James Hansen, NASA’s former lead climate scientist, and 16 co-authors, many of whom are considered among the top in their fields—concludes that glaciers in Greenland and Antarctica will melt 10 times faster than previous consensus estimates, resulting in sea level rise of at least 10 feet in as little as 50 years.

It was so auspicious and indicative when George Bush, in 2006, removed "to understand and protect the home planet" from the National Space Policy. It confirmed in us our stance on what our  "leadership" holds of value. But it's not Bush's fault anymore. It's all becoming quite apparent. The last minute side show of denialists can continue being an alibi for the the coalition of the wanting but still not fully willing it. Ladies and gentlemen of this once fine, lush, and vibrant planet, you may as well place your bets.

In what may prove to be a turning point for political action on climate change, a breathtaking new study casts extreme doubt about the near-term stability of global sea levels. The study—written by James Hansen, NASA’s former lead climate scientist, and 16 co-authors, many of whom are considered among the...

There has been some rather severe and extended doom and gloom for EDA, the once vaunted ever emerging enhancement of humans mastering the digital and analog. A new hope is needed, a new beginning, one again not beholden to the ever-decrepitizing institutions that be: and here's one shot at that: CircuitJS. Very nice SPICE-alike circuit analysis tool, in HTML5,
http://lushprojects.com/circuitjs/

Via @Boldport, who recently authored A farewell to EDA,
EDA is dead [and we're to blame]. It's been dying for about 20 years now. Big EDA have given up on innovation and the 99% of their users that cannot buy "platinum" support. Their software is an out-dated patchwork that's occasionally given a botox injection in the form of a new set of Windows icons

We have ES.next() with Babel,

DC tried to make this "old" church (3rd Church of Christ, Scietist, wtf?) a historical building- this crass crude brutalist thing. Well, that was appropriately denied. Unfortunately the replacement is this caustic useless crass and crude business building, entirely without virtue. I'm way more in favor of the bold, useless freaks than I am the pedestrian freakereque, the common connundrumatical site. So goes. Oh bland, how you incur unto us.

So my next plan for letting the roommate know he's not welcome hanging out in the public space way too close to my room is to hook up a servo to a small mallet, and bang on the wall right behind him for a big part of it. I don't even think he's playing dumb to how badly he creeps, encroaches my privacy- I think he's just a straight up dumbstain.

I want to wait out another two weeks before doing anything, but I'm pretty sure I'm going to either install this defense/harassment device in my room, or just move the sofa he spends wayyy to much time on into an awkward position way across the room first. The last option would be the worst, the least respectable: give me forbearance to make it to my crafty antagonism, or patience to suffer that holds out.

Great article on freaky financial wonk's mad desires to PATCHFIX the freeness of the freehand- they propose to freeze trading in the SEC's Limit Up/Limit Down Plan to Address Extraordinary Market Volatility (LULD) plan. Attached are a number of graphs of where that freeze would occur.
http://www.nanex.net/research/LimitUpDown/LUD.Simulated.html

Not totally a fan of washing our hands of other people's financial crimes and abominations, but suffice it to say, "No software developer with any sense was part of this process," and the article goes on to point out a number of absolutely catastrophic assumptions on the part of the SEC that indicates that they have not the foggiest clue what mechanisms stock markets actually work atop.

Like the patent office, it's just another government backed corporate syndicate, rotted in place in the mold of a thing that once served.
We have read the SEC Limit Up/Limit Down Plan to Address Extraordinary Market Volatility (LULD, or the plan). We have also read through the comments submitted to the SEC by knowledgeable professionals in the industry, and we agree with nearly all of the concerns presented.

Making great use of the Docker Wormhole Pattern today: mount your /var/run/docker.sock inside your containers so you can Docker there too.

It's so sad how many amazing UART systems are out there, yet how few can be used in modes without start/stop bits, that can be used as general xfer devices.

One of my inflight projects needs manchester encoding, and there's a dozen amazing semi-autonomous I/O subsystems in my microcontroller, but none of which can be used for anything that doesn't do start bits. Self synchronizing protocol, nyquist-ian calibration at the encoding? Bah, that's how we serialize in this universe (UART, Universal Asynchronous Receiver/Transmitter).
