PEP was committed to the trunk of ejabberd. Probably the checking I was most anxious to see.
This last week, as I read through several posts about the Facebook Beacon, the only one word crossed my mind: lemmings. And I was thinking on the people who own the sites that use the Facebook beacon, because in the end, they are giving their userbase for free to Facebook. I think I'll just sudo sh -c 'echo 127.0.0.1 facebook.com www.facebook.com >> /etc/hosts'. Update: a post by the Facebook CEO.
The last 2 ADSL routers I bought (the most recent 3 months ago) lack support of SRV DNS records. When I get my IP address via DHCP, the router also sets itself as my DNS server. But if I use it, dig srv _xmpp-client._tcp.simplicidade.org gives me zero answers. This, as you might imagine, sucks big time. This is a D-Link router bought in 2007, and basic SRV lookups are still missing in action.
This is good news. Qmail distribution page is already updated. Pity it took so long. 8 or 9 years ago, a public domain version of Qmail would rock. Now, not so much. But even so, it will make things like qmail-ldap project easier to use.
A football match with the players using binoculars. Not work safe because you'll make a fool of yourself laughing out loud. I know I did.
A full (114 pages) PDF version of the series by Ulrich Drepper is now available. Everything you ever wanted to know about memory...
Carmack is (still) god. At least one of them. (via apostle pfig). Update: a more accurate version of the source of the code. Update 2: the real author stands up.
I find it amusing that a search for Kindle in Amazon UK doesn't return any relevant results. So much PR, so little return. Anyway, I'm carbon-oriented when we are talking about books. I prefer the paper-kind, not the electronic version. I subscribed O'Reilly Safari bookshelf for a while, but I stopped using them because of that. Granted, the experience with Kindle could be better than a browser and a computer screen, the display is much better than the usual 72dpi of a LCD.
I like the new web-based upload tool that Flickr is using. I like it so much that I no longer use the Flickr iPhoto plugin. Update: there is a open-source project that matches most if not all the features of the Flickr uploaded: SWFUpload 2007. One thing I could never understand is why don't browsers have a upload list with a progress bar? I mean, they have all the information they need to do it.
