Because it's Star Wars day

seti: (NSFW)


coderman: ""I always considered these films Westerns," said Lucas. "What made the classic Westerns of guys like John Ford great was that the stories they told were so simple that they ended up being deeply resonant and inspiring."
coderman: star wars as space westerns. that explains the dialogue perfectly.

Porn Valley Goes Blogging

coderman: this is a total boner killer. except when it isnt.




aminorex: Newsweek was right. Koran desecration is old news.
^matthew: Am I really the only person who draws a distinction between books and humans? That is, one you're allowed to beat up, and the other you're not.

Ext3 copy on write fs

coderman: i want to try this sometime. someone let me know if it doesn't eat data :)

Deciding when to forget in the Elephant file system

coderman: "Modern file systems associate the deletion of a file with the immediate release of storage, and file writes with the irrevocable change of file contents. We argue that this behavior is a relic of the past, when disk storage was a scarce resource. Today, large cheap disks make it possible for the file system to protect valuable data from accidental delete or overwrite."
coderman: disk based backup++. do you know how many CDR's it takes to backup half a terabyte?

UnionFS - A Stackable Unification File System

coderman: "This project builds a stackable unification file system, which can appear to merge the contents of several directories (branches), while keeping their physical content separate. Unionfs is useful for unified source tree management, merged contents of split CD-ROM, merged separate software package directories, data grids, and more."
MutinyWork: Note to coderman, check your urls before you post them.


^matthew: A new Air Force strategy, Global Strike, calls for a military space plane carrying precision-guided weapons armed with a half-ton of munitions.
^matthew: Another Air Force space program, nicknamed Rods From God, aims to hurl cylinders of tungsten, titanium or uranium from the edge of space to destroy targets on the ground, striking at speeds of about 7,200 miles an hour with the force of a small nuclear weapon. [that's cool mm'kay]
^matthew: A third program would bounce laser beams off mirrors hung from space satellites or huge high-altitude blimps, redirecting the lethal rays down to targets around the world. A fourth seeks to turn radio waves into weapons whose powers could range "from tap on the shoulder to toast," in the words of an Air Force plan.
^matthew: more on global strike
Ash: dongs


coderman: "Paramedics rushed to help ? and found the black leatherette panties still buzzing."
^matthew: An Asda spokesman sa"We like to think shopping with us is exciting enough already"

Mutiny: And totally blows the doors off <A HREF="http://anonymizer.com">Anonymizer</A>
simmo: "The new version of the mix software includes a function by use of which the access to a particular web server can be recorded. Many people felt irritated about this." hahaha
simmo: from the same page: "Anonymity in the internet makes still sense when the access to a single website with illegal content is recorded for a limited time period due to a court decision." hehehe

Status of freenet

simmo: status == one paid developer means a full time interest able to defend the project from any potential volunteers helping out?
coderman: status == totally fucked, like it has been for years and years. and will remain into the indefinite future.
simmo: <freenet community> see i2p
simmo: freenet clearly is that troll designed to prevent anyone from thinking they actually have to work on freedom-of-speech technical aspects
simmo: just as you suspected all along
simmo: perhaps freenet should copy the i2p bounty system

simmo: The Internet Backplane Protocol (IBP) is middleware for managing and using remote storage. It was invented to support Logistical Networking in large scale, distributed systems and applications.
simmo: now supported by transcode video processor
