tor as an...availability service?

Posted 07-24-2013 at 07:26 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

Last night my wife complained to me that facebook was taking forever to load. I figured it was just a hiccup somewhere between facebook and our home network, so I waited a bit to see.

An hour or so later, she was getting impatient, so I fired up a tcpdump session on the firewall and watched her desktop exchange a pretty funny set of packets (well, you had to be there, I suppose), loaded with PUSH, URG, and FIN packets back and forth between her desktop and facebook.

LightZone – Professional-level digital darkroom software

Posted 07-23-2013 at 06:20 AM by sridhar11

LightZone is professional-level digital darkroom software for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. Rather than using layers as many other photo editors do, LightZone lets the user build up a stack of tools which can be rearranged,turned off and on, and removed from the stack. It's a non-destructive editor, where any of the tools can be re-adjusted or modified later — even in a different editing session. A tool stack can be copied to a batch of photos at one time. LightZone operates in a 16-bit linear color...

ZACL Changes Afoot

Posted 07-17-2013 at 08:52 PM by ttk (Unpopular Positions: One Geek's Take)

Lately, when working on Zacl (Zacl's A Concurrency Language), I've been trying to implement a parser for the language with Lemon.

I've despised lex and yacc (and their successors, flex and bison) since 1988, and most of the other compiler-compilers out there looked to me like remakes of lex and yacc, using different implementation languages and different syntactic sugar.
