- Ceph.org got pwned so they're reissuing their signing keys. D'oh.
Lots of financial news, lots of Bloomberg killing it again this week.
- (I guess all that fortran is working for them, eh? /rimshot)
- How many bonds from 1648 are still paying interest? (don't miss the fascinating HN comments and Matt Levine's take)
- "The federal government contracting process is insane."
- Apparently Google keeps all its source code in one giant repo. Yet more HN comments wherein the highly informed argue with the utterly clueless.
- I stumbled across the training program the military uses to teach cybersecurity to non-experts. It's both completely reasonable and utterly cringeworthy.
- Finally a roomba that can look up my skirt. (Yes, I'm probably going to buy one anyway, shut up)
- Let's Encrypt issued a certificate! That no browser trusts (yet)! I intend to turn https back on on skorgu.net using their certs so hopefully this works and stuff.
- In related news I realized far too late that www.skorgu.net has an AAAA record but nginx wasn't listening on IPv6 sockets. The internet is hard, guys.
In case you missed it, Amazon lowered prices on storage again. Using the highly scientific "how much will it cost to stick 1TB into that there cloud thing for a month and not touch it" metric:
- $12.50 at this new IA level
$7 at the glacier level
$10 (unchanged) at Google's Nearline level.
Femto is such a great prefix. Femtosecond lasers let you machine metal without melting, explode the air to make 3d images (on a previous Weird), and now see around corners (video).
- From the "things that just shouldn't exist" department: Lisp in sed.
- The headline "unhackable kernel" usually trips my mental spam filter. In this case though it's referring to seL4 which is a legit, formally verified microkernel OS. The requisite HN comments are good, including one that lists other EAL-rated systems like System Z.
