+Thomas Graf writes "[…] The Linux kernel community recently announced bpfilter, which will replace the long-standing in-kernel implementation of iptables with high-performance network filtering powered by Linux BPF, all while guaranteeing a non-disruptive transition for Linux users. […] These early performance numbers are incredible promising and an indication of the power of BPF. It must be noted that bpfilter and BPF itself will not solve the performance problems caused by iptables's use of sequential lists. Doing so will require native use of BPF such as done by the Cilium project. […] I consider BPF the most exciting Linux development since many years. We are barely scratching the surface of its potential and it is still evolving. The move to replace the kernel part of iptables with BPF is a logical first step. The real transition will be to BPF native tooling as well as move away from traditional IP address/port centric constructs. […]"

The home of the rare and wonderful

Lord Howe Island, Australia

These beautiful twin peaks are the landmarks of the island, and holds so much more than beauty to the human eye, and is recognized with the highest honor as a UNESCO World Heritage site.

These steep cliffs are home to endemic flora and fungi and also a large number of seabirds, of which the providence petrels (Pterodroma solandri) were coming back in droves for their annual winter breeding here. They breed only on one other location in the whole world, but not in the numbers here which are in the tens of thousands. During the day they are out on the sea feeding, but as the sun moves closer to the horizon they come back to the island, and this was the time I treasured on a daily basis.

Every sunset before this image I went to the south end of the seaside trail to Little Island, where the trail makes a steep turn from the beach up the mountain side, seen here as the lowest of the sheer cliffs on the nearest mountain, and continues up to the 875 meter high Mount Gower shrouded in clouds, seen to the right. Here I would lie on my back on the grassy patch and let my eyes wander through layers and layers of petrels flying in every direction courting and calling, but mostly I sat on one of the many smooth rocks in awe of the sounds from the waves crashing to the callings of the petrels and simply how immensely rich life can be on such a small speck of land. It’s is amazing to see the sky filled with so many birds as that is becoming ever rarer because of us.

I planned my last and final time with the petrels the next and last sunset, but instead the sky turned dark and rain ensued.

Dropping the lawsuits could present multiple benefits to Cohen. He avoids having to turn over documents or answer questions as part of these civil cases, and the risk that information would be publicly disclosed. Such information could also be used against him in the federal criminal probe.

It may also strengthen an argument Cohen and his lawyers made as they petitioned a Los Angeles court last week to halt a lawsuit brought by Stormy Daniels to invalidate the 2016 non-disclosure agreement covering her alleged affair with Trump. Cohen argued his testimony in that case could affect his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination in the related ongoing federal investigation. That argument would have been much harder to sustain while leaving himself open to questioning in the civil lawsuits he initiated against Buzzfeed and Fusion GPS.
