Virtual Spring Cleaning

I now have a blog series where I blog on each module I release. It really is a series because it's already been three posts! I've decided to release a plethora of modules that I wrote but never released. Just so that they don't rot on my computers. Maybe somebody else finds these useful.

The blog posts usually describe my motivation to write these modules and also what problems I encountered when writing them.

I'm trying to keep a list of all the features I would like in Dancer::SearchApp. These features and changes range from large (index and search video subtitle files and link to the scenes in the movie) to small (implement suggestions). Usually, I keep the list of these features in a Pod file ...

Starting to clean up some of my distributions and some of my undistributed code. Publishing is liberating.
By Max Maischein on March 27, 2016 10:07 PM. At the 2016 German Perl Workshop in Nuremberg I first released and demonstrated a simple local search engine created from Elasticsearch with Perl for the surrounding infrastructure. The search application is distributed via CPAN as Dancer::SearchApp.

My Firefox setup

I've updated my Firefox setup, thanks to Google and others being obnoxious in telling me that they remember me:

uBlockhttps://www.ublock.org/

My adblocker of choice.

Self-Destructing Cookieshttps://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/self-destructing-cookies/

This removes cookies from websites whenever I close their tab. If I want a website to remember me, I can whitelist them when the close notification appears.

Custom /etc/hostshttp://someonewhocares.org/hosts/

This blocks lots and lots of other advertising hosts and even magically blocks advertisements on my mobile phone when it's using my home wireless network.

Signs That You're Living in the Future part 2 a)

OK, one of these is full-satirical and the other is half-satirical, but both seem technically possible.

Industrial Robot Will Harvest Your Unborn Children

At least for chickens, harvesting the yolk and eggwhite from eggs is automated through a surprisingly simple machine. No machine learning, cameras or other black magic needed.

Pure comedy gold from the Go Code of Conduct:

"If someone takes issue with something you said or did, resist the urge to be defensive. Just stop doing what it was they complained about and apologize."

So my standard response to anything anybody says should be "I take issue with that, please stop doing what it was and apologize!"

It also feels weird that discussion about this "community" code of conduct is not done on a mailing list or at a conference but secretly by one-on-one mails. But I'm not a member of the Go community, so I don't know how interaction there happens.

Algorithm for Private Set Intersection aka. you don't have to give your complete adressbook to Facebook/Whatsapp/Telegram:

https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=11289223
As Moxie notes, this problem is known as private set intersection: how can two parties P1 & P2 discover which elements they have in common, without revealing all their elements to each other or to a third party? His error is in describing scenarios where P1 is Open Whisper Systems and P2 is one ...

... this seems to be insecure against a malucious server and a colluding person that you already have in your address book...

Signs That You're Living in the Future part 2 b)

This one is full satirical and not yet completely technically possible. But I can see the Digital Restriction Management restricting the amount of unlicensed people enjoying an activity at the same time.

A short history of the "Sleng Teng" riddim. It manages to tie in the Amen Break (of course, via SL2 and others). Personal favourite is  the "Lorde Royals Dancehall Remix", linked directly here too:

30 years later and the 'sleng teng' legacy is still going strong.

I wasn't aware of the time+hardware limitations. 1 million packets per second doesn't really sound that large, but the timing limitations you have to fulfill to handle (or ignore) each packet just in time make this an interesting exercise.

Not that I'm in the situation of having to do something like this myself. But it was new to me that even though one can simply throw more CPUs at a problem, you can't easily throw more NICs at a problem to handle such traffic within one machine.
Last week during a casual conversation I overheard a colleague saying: "The Linux network stack is slow! You can't expect it to do more than 50 thousand packets per second per core!" That got me thinking. While I agree that...
