We recently presented Tiny Tiny RSS to you as a great alternative to Google reader, which is one more way you can extend the functionality of your home server or your hosting space. Hopefully, you already exported your data from Google Reader. In this post, we will show you how to secure TT-RSS reader to prevent unauthorized access. Tiny Tiny RSS is an open source web-based news feed (RSS/Atom) reader and aggregator, designed to allow you to read news from any location, while feeling as close to a real desktop application as possible. As we previously explained, it makes an ideal candidate to replace Google Reader. While there are services like Feedly and Newsblur grabbing the crowd Google Reader, which some of you may prefer, there are a group of people who would like to run a RSS reader on their own server and keep things private. Assuming that you have already installed Tiny Tiny RSS on your alternative to Google reader or hosting space, we will now show you how to secure TT-RSS reader.
Secure TT-RSS Reader
One of the main reasons to move to an RSS aggregator like TT-RSS is maintaining your privacy. So if you do not secure TT-RSS reader well you are not only making your data available public but also making your system vulnerable to potential attacks. Choosing a strong username and password while setting your TT-RSS is the first basic thing that you can do to secure TT-RSS reader. Listed below are few more ways you can increase TT-RSS readerâs security.
1. Rename TT-RSS Folder
One of the first lines of defense is to not use tt-rss in your URL to access your TT-RSS reader. To do this on your hosting account, use a folder name other than tt-rss while installing TT-RSS. On your Linux home server, edit /etc/tt-rss/apache.conf and change the first /tt-rss to something else. An example is shown below.
TT-RSS Rename URL
TT-RSS Rename URL
After making the change, restart your TT-RSS and Apache to apply the changes:
sudo service tt-rss restart
sudo serivce apache2 reload
Your TT-RSS reader is now available through the new URL (example: http://mydomain.com/myreader) only.

2. Enable SSL
Accessing TT-RSS through http sends all information as unencrypted data. This could mean less privacy due to potential sniffing. The solution is to encrypt the data during transfer, which makes sniffing by hackers harder. To enable and enforce HTTPS access on Linux servers with Apache, install the following run-time libraries:
sudo apt-get install libssl0.9.8 libpam0g openssl
Restart your Apache server as shown above. You should now be able to access your TT-RSS reader with HTTPS. Note that you may have to have a SSL certificate generated. Refer to Apache documentation if you want to generate your own certificate. By default, the system will install self-signed certificates for you. These certificates are likely to raise warnings when you point your browser to the site.
3. Disable Single User Mode
By default the single user mode is already disabled (in /etc/tt-rss/config.php). Enabling single user mode will also disable TT-RSS login system. Therefore, keep the single user mode disabled.

Disable Single User Mode
A better way to make it a single user system is by limiting the number of registrations to 1 as described below. For whatever reason, you still want to enable single user mode, make sure you implement Apache Authentication method described below.
4. Self Registrations
Self registrations allow a visitor to register themselves, which could reduce TT-RSS security. If your TT-RSS will be for personal use only, then you may want to disable user registration by setting âENABLE_REGISTRATIONâ to âfalseâ.

To further secure TT-RSS Reader, uou may also want to change âREG_MAX_USERSâ to â1â to make your account the only account on TT-RSS.

5. Apache Authentication
Last but not the least, enable Authentication. This is even more important if you have enabled âSingle User Modeâ describe above. Every time you access TT-RSS, you will be asked for a username and password as shown in the picture below:
Secure TT-RSS Reader
On your hosting account this equivalent to password protecting a directory, in this case the TT-RSS directory. To do this on your Ubuntu server, you will have to create a .htpasswd file. More information is available in Apache documentation. But the easiest way to achieve this is to use one of the htpasswd generators available online.
After you enter the username and password two code blocks will be generated. Copy the contents of the .htpasswd code block and save it to /etc/apache2/.htpasswd_ttrss. Next, copy the contents of the .htaccess code block and add it to /etc/tt-rss/apache.conf as shown below:
TT-RSS Apache Authentication
TT-RSS Apache Authentication
Save and exit. Restart both TT-RSS and Apache previous shown above. You should be prompted for a password every time you try to access TT-RSS. Some may think that this double authentication method is an extra inconvenience. But I would rather be safe than sorry.
Go ahead, secure Tiny Tiny RSS Reader and enjoy reading articles on your private secure RSS Reader.

1386 Retro Synth Ads: Sound Master Memory Rhythm SR-88, Keyboard 1982
Sound Master Memory Rhythm SR-88 drum machine 1-page advertisement from page 67 in Keyboard Magazine August 1982.
Hmmm. Not sure how I feel about this ad. There just seems to be a lot going on.
For example, am I supposed to know who "The Rhythm Section" is? The fact that they include themselves in an already long ad title suggests they must be some kind of a big deal. And then you find their name again in the bottom left-hand corner:
"The SR-88. Another innovative product from The Rhythm Section by Sound Master Distributed exclusively by JTG of Nashville."
So, let me get this straight. JTG of Nashville is the distributor of the SR-88 which was created by The Rhythm Section which is somehow owned or operated by Sound Master.
That is waaaaay to much information. Sounds like something political is going on there, and readers unfortunately get stuck in the middle of it.
There also seems to be a lot of ad-copy which actually doesn t give me much information. Reason #4 gives readers the most info including instant stop/start, variable tone and output switches, and a write/play mode indicator. The most I glean out of the four other reasons put together is: 16 rhythms, clock pulse and a price of under $200.
The actual specs that are probably most important to potential buyers are inexplicably shoved into the bottom right-hand corner.
Luckily for me, there are a few resources on the Web with more information about this beast. Unluckily for blog readers, as soon as I started looking for more info, I got swept up in a certain SR-88/Boss DR-55 controversy.
Comparing the SR-88 and Boss DR-55
One of the first Web sites I hit while looking for info on the SR-88 was Dubsounds.com. The site includes a great little write-up on the SR-88, but, more interesting was finding out about a little controversy about whether the SR-88 or the very similar Boss DR-55 came out first.
The two do seem mighty similar in functionality. For comparison purposes, I did a quick search on MATRIXSYNTH to find more photos. . A great photo of a gray SR-88 can be found in this December 2005 SR-88 MATRIXSYNTH auction post and the less common, but definitely more cool, blue SR-88 can be seen in this January 2011 MATRIXSYNTH auction post.
Comparing the two to the Amdek RMK-100
Interestingly, it s not just these two machines that look and function similarly. In this May 2009 MATRIXSYNTH SR-88 auction post commenter "PAC" notices:
"Interesting. I have an Amdek RMK-100 (sold as kit), very similar!"
Never heard of it, so I Googled "Amdek RMK-100" to see just how similar it was to both the DR-55 and the SR-88. Turns out (according to the Internet) that Amdek products were made by Boss/Roland back in 80s, and, not only that, but that the RMK-100 is actually the kit version of the Boss DR-55. Makes sense on why it would also be similar to the SR-88.
I found an ebay auction for an Amdek RMK-100 going on right now with a great photo of the front panel (see below), and indeed it does share a lot with the DR-55 and SR-88 - but definitely not identical to either one.
For example, it looks like the Amdek and SR-88 share a similar filler function that as far as I can tell is not available on the DR-55. And the DR-55 and the RMK-100 share a similar accent function that I don t see on the SR-88.
Now where does the Electro Dynamics Corporation Programmable Rhythm SR-99 fit in?
I also came across another machine with similar features - the Programmable Rhythm SR-99. No - not manufactured by Sound Master, but by Electro Dynamics Corporation. And, it too resembles the others in functionality, and especially the SR-88 in design also.
I ve included a row of photos below to help make the comparison between the two. The SR-88 photo is from the 2005 MATRIXSYNTH auction post and the EDC SR-99 photo is from the excellent BigBlueWave.co.uk site. I ve also thrown in a photo from another recent E-bay listing that included both - plus boxes and manuals! Sick!
Obviously, Sound Master and EDC are somehow connected, although I can t find any info on the Internet concerning these two companies. I do know that they were both advertising separately in Keyboard Magazine in late 1983, making it unlikely that one of the companies changed their name to the other. Anyone know anything?
And then there is the Clef Master Rhythm...
Now, I m going to throw in a late entry. It s Sunday night, and I just came across this August 2010 MATRIXSYNTH auction post for the Clef Master Rhythm. It not only shares part of the name of one of the other units ("Master"), it too has many features of the other rhythm machines, and identical innards as the DR-55, but is expanded to include even more sounds:
"This is essentially a fully expanded Boss DR-55 feature-wise and tone-wise. The circuits are identical (schematically and tonally) to the Boss DR-55, but the Clef Master Rhythm gives you way more instruments than the Boss DR-55..."
Interestingly, according to the post, it pre-dates the Boss DR-55 - and also came in a kit form like the Amdek.
"The Clef Master Rhythm came out a little before the Boss DR-55 in late 1979/early 1980. It was sold in two versions and available in greater quantities in Europe than in the United States. One version was a kit that the user put together and another one was a prebuilt machine."
A photo from the MATRIXSYNTH post really helps show the similarities in functions with the others:
What does it all mean?
So, looking at all five machines, its almost like there was a rhythm machine salad bar of some sort in Japan, and each company stepped up to it and picked out which features they wanted to include in their product.
And that begs the question - since we know there was a kit form available and there are claims that the Clef Master even has the same circuits as the DR-55, could all five products (and probably others) have used the exact same internal parts - each company choosing which features to include and then customizing in their respective rhythm machine? And if so, were those parts supplied by Amdek, or did all five get their internal parts from some other manufacturer?
And if that is the case, then the question of whether the SR-88 or DR-55 came first doesn t really matter much, since it is likely that the kit components would have been available first. Plus, we have that one auction post with the claim that the Clef Master came out before the DR-55 - making it all even more confusing to figure out.
Or, am I totally off the mark on all this? Were they all created separately? Maybe I ve just been fixated on this a little too much...
I ll keep on looking for more info on these companies and any connection they might have, but if anyone want to buy all four and open them up to take a look - it would be muchly appreciated. :D

Here s a funny thing - I seem to remember Clef in the early 1980s as a British company that made electronic pianos (touch-sensitive ones!) in kit form. Deep in the back of my mind I recall seeing them at a music fair in London with a couple of their pianos and some drum machines including a prototype drum/bass/chord sequencer called something like a "Band-Box". But it WAS a long time ago.

Looks like (for once) my memory didn t fail me. Here is a 1982 ad for Clef Electronics showing all the products I mentioned, plus a natty-looking little monosynth! BTW, I owned an EDC SR99 drum machine in the mid-1980s, but replaced it with a Yamaha RX-21 a couple of years later.

Commandes IP relatives aux rĂ©seaux sous Windows
Il est parfois trĂšs utile de connaĂźtre les commandes IP, pour analyser voire configurer ses rĂ©seaux TCP/IP.
Voici la liste de ces commandes Ă utiliser dans une fenĂȘtre DOS :
PING : Teste la connexion rĂ©seau avec une adresse IP distante
ping -t [IP ou host]
ping -l 1024 [IP ou host]
* Lâoption -t permet de faire des pings en continu jusquâĂ Ctrl-C.
o Si vous avez prĂ©cisĂ© l'option -t vous pouvez Ă tout moment avoir des statistiques sans interrompre les requĂȘtes ping en appuyant sur Ctrl+Attn (aussi nommĂ© Ctrl+Pause)
Cette commande est aussi utile pour gĂ©nĂ©rer une charge rĂ©seau en spĂ©cifiant la taille du paquet avec lâoption -l et la taille du paquet en octets.
TRACERT : Affiche toutes les adresses IP intermĂ©diaires par lesquelles passe un paquet entre la machine locale et lâadresse IP spĂ©cifiĂ©e.
tracert [@IP ou nom du host]
tracert -d [@IP ou nom du host]
Cette commande est utile si la commande ping ne donne pas de rĂ©ponse, afin d'Ă©tablir Ă quel niveau la connexion est dĂ©faillante.
IPCONFIG : Affiche ou rafraĂźchit la configuration rĂ©seau TCP/IP
ipconfig /all [/release [carte]] [/renew [carte]] /flushdns /displaydns /registerdns [-a] [-a] [-a]
Cette commande, exĂ©cutĂ©e sans option, affiche lâadresse IP en cours, le masque rĂ©seau ainsi que la passerelle par dĂ©faut au niveau des interfaces rĂ©seau connues sur la machine locale.
* /all: Affiche toute la configuration rĂ©seau, y compris les serveurs DNS, WINS, bail DHCP, etc ...
* /renew [carte]: Renouvelle la configuration DHCP de toutes les cartes (si aucune carte n'est spĂ©cifiĂ©e) ou d'une carte spĂ©cifique avec le paramĂštre carte. Le nom de carte est celui qui apparaĂźt avec ipconfig sans paramĂštre.
* /release [carte]: Envoie un message DHCPRELEASE au serveur DHCP pour libĂ©rer la configuration DHCP actuelle et annuler la configuration d'adresse IP de toutes les cartes (si aucune carte n'est spĂ©cifiĂ©e) ou d'une carte spĂ©cifique avec paramĂštre carte. Ce paramĂštre dĂ©sactive TCP/IP pour les cartes configurĂ©es de maniĂšre Ă obtenir automatiquement une adresse IP.
* /flushdns: Vide et rĂ©initialise le cache de rĂ©solution du client DNS. Cette option est utile pour exclure les entrĂ©es de caches nĂ©gatives ainsi que toutes les autres entrĂ©es ajoutĂ©es de faĂ§on dynamique.
* /displaydns: Affiche le cache de rĂ©solution du client DNS, qui inclut les entrĂ©es prĂ©chargĂ©es Ă partir du fichier des hĂŽtes locaux ainsi que tous les enregistrements de ressources rĂ©cemment obtenus pour les requĂȘtes de noms rĂ©solues par l'ordinateur. Le service Client DNS utilise ces informations pour rĂ©soudre rapidement les noms frĂ©quemment sollicitĂ©s, avant d'interroger ses serveurs DNS configurĂ©s.
* /registerdns: Actualise tous les baux DHCP et rĂ©inscrit les noms DNS.
NETSTAT : Affiche lâĂ©tat de la pile TCP/IP sur la machine locale
NETSTAT [-a] [-e] [-n] [-s] [-p proto] [-r] [intervalle]
* -a Affiche toutes les connexions et ports d'Ă©coute (Les connexions cĂŽtĂ© serveur sont normalement inhibĂ©es).
* -e Affiche les statistiques Ethernet. Peut ĂȘtre combinĂ©e avec l'option -s.
* -n Affiche les adresses et les numĂ©ros de port sous forme numĂ©rique.
* -p proto Affiche les connexions pour le protocole spĂ©cifiĂ© par proto; proto peut ĂȘtre TCP ou UDP. UtilisĂ© avec l'option -s pour afficher des statistiques par protocole, proto peut ĂȘtre TCP, UDP, ou IP.
* -r Affiche le contenu de la table de routage.
* -s Affiche les statistiques par protocole. Par dĂ©faut, des statistiques sur TCP, UDP et IP sont visualisĂ©es; l'option -p peut ĂȘtre utilisĂ©e pour spĂ©cifier un sous-ensemble du dĂ©faut.
* intervalle: RĂ©affiche les statistiques sĂ©lectionnĂ©es, avec une pause de "intervalle" secondes entre chaque affichage. Appuyez sur Ctrl+C pour arrĂȘter l'affichage des statistiques.
* -abnov Affiche les processus qui utilisent la connexion internet (Adresse IP local, port, adress IP distante et le PID du processus qui utilise la connexion ainsi que son nom).
ROUTE : Affiche ou modifie la table de routage
ROUTE [-f] [commande [destination] [MASK masque rĂ©seau] [passerelle]
* -f Efface les tables de routage de toutes les entrĂ©es de passerelles. UtilisĂ© conjointement Ă une des commandes, les tables sont effacĂ©es avant l'exĂ©cution de la commande.
* -p Rend rĂ©manente lâentrĂ©e dans la table aprĂšs le reboot de la machine

Cette commande renvoie le nom NetBIOS, nom du systĂšme, les utilisateurs connectĂ©s ...de la machine distante.
La commande telnet permet d'accĂ©der en mode Terminal (Ecran passif) Ă un host distant. Elle permet Ă©galement de vĂ©rifier si un service quelconque TCP tourne sur un serveur distant en spĂ©cifiant aprĂšs lâadresse IP le numĂ©ro de port TCP. Câest ainsi que lâon peut tester si le service SMTP, par exemple, tourne sur un serveur Microsoft Exchange en utilisant lâadresse IP du connecteur SMTP et puis 25 comme numĂ©ro de port. Les ports les plus courants sont :
* ftp (21),
* telnet (23),
* smtp (25),
* www (80),
* kerberos (88),
* pop3 (110),
* nntp (119)
* et nbt (137-139).
HOSTNAME : Affiche le nom de la machine
FTP: Client de tĂ©lĂ©chargement de fichiers
* -s cette option permet de lancer des FTP en mode batch : spĂ©cifie un fichier textuel contenant les commandes FTP.
NsLookUp: envoie des requĂȘtes DNS sur un serveur DNS au choix
nslookup [domaine] [serveur dns]
La commande NsLookUp permet d'envoyer des requĂȘtes DNS Ă un serveur. Par dĂ©faut, si vous ne mettez pas le serveur DNS, la commande utilisera celui qui est configurĂ© pour votre interface rĂ©seau (celui que vous utilisez pour naviguer sur internet, par exemple) mais vous pouvez forcer l'utilisation d'un autre serveur.
Par exemple, pour demander au serveur DNS 10.0.0.3 l'adresse IP correspondante Ă l'adresse www.commentcamarche.net:
nslookup www.commentcamarche.net 10.0.0.3
* Si vous ne prĂ©cisez aucun paramĂštre pour nslookup, un shell s'ouvrira en attente de requĂȘtes de votre part.
Netsh (network shell : shell rĂ©seau) est un utilitaire en ligne de commande inclus dans la gamme des systĂšmes d'exploitation Windows NT (NT, 2000, XP, 2003 Serveur, Vista) Ă partir de Windows 2000. Il permet la configuration du rĂ©seau, localement ou Ă distance.
Une utilisation classique de netsh est la rĂ©initialisation de la pile TCP/IP Ă ses paramĂštres d'origines (Sous Windows 98, cette opĂ©ration nĂ©cessitait la rĂ©installation de l'adaptateur TCP/IP). Dans ce mode, vous devez fournir Ă la commande un fichier journal (log). Celui-ci sera rempli avec les valeurs affectĂ©es par netsh.
Netsh permet aussi (entre autres) de changer l'adresse IP de la machine.
Exemples d'utilisations :
- RĂ©initialisation de la pile TCP/IP :
netsh interface ip reset C:\resetlog.txt
- Adresse IP statique :
netsh interface ip set address local static 188.8.131.52 255.255.255.0
- Adresse IP dynamique :
netsh interface ip set address name="Connexion au rĂ©seau local" source=dhcp
- Netsh et IPv6 :
Netsh peut Ă©galement ĂȘtre utilisĂ© pour lire des informations provenant de la pile IPv6, cette commande est plus facile Ă utiliser que la commande IPv6.exe et fournit quasiment le mĂȘme niveau d'information.
Pour afficher votre adresse IPv6 en utilisant netsh :
netsh interface ipv6 show address

CrĂ©er votre propre commande
Pour ceux qui aiment tout faire avec le clavier, il est possible de crĂ©er vos propres commandes exĂ©cutables dans Menu dĂ©marrer > ExĂ©cuter.
Nous allons prendre l'exemple de la commande netnavig qui exĂ©cutera Mozilla FireFox.
* Ouvrez la base de registre.
* Allez vers la clĂ© HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE puis les sous-clĂ©s successives \SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths
* Allez dans le menu Ădition > Nouveau > ClĂ© et donnez-lui le nom netnavig.exe
* Faites un double-clic sur la valeur que vous venez de crĂ©er, puis allez de nouveau dans le menu Ădition > Nouveau > Valeur ChaĂźne et donnez-lui le nom Path
* Faites encore un double-clic sur la valeur crĂ©Ă©e et entrez le chemin complet de l'application que vous voudrez lancer, dans notre exemple c'est C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox, puis validez. Il est possible de copier ce chemin Ă partir de la barre d'adresse de l'explorateur directement.
* Un autre double-clic sur la valeur (par dĂ©faut) et entrez l'exĂ©cutable de l'application avec son chemin complet : C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox, dans notre exemple. Ensuite, validez et fermez l'Ă©diteur de registre.
Ainsi vous pouvez exĂ©cuter Mozilla Firefox juste en faisant: Menu dĂ©marrer > ExĂ©cuter > taper netnavig et valider.
Vous pouvez faire la mĂȘme chose pour toutes les applications auxquelles vous voulez un accĂšs rapide avec le clavier.

I have a non-fitness related life situation that I wanted to run by you guysâŠ. I wanted to talk to you guys today about not always having to say your sorry. Are you one of those people who finds yourself apologizing for things just to smooth things over or avoid a confrontation? This ability is admirable in certain low-key non-crucial situations. Itâs when we apologize for our beliefs and principles â or in the face of being bullied that we pay the high price of compromising ourselves. I have a friend who is being treated badly by certain members of her family. It really comes down to her not living her life exactly the way they think she should be living it. My friend is not endangering herself or others, she is kind hearted and generous to the extreme, but because she is not pulling the line and placing the needs of others before her own basic needs and happiness she is taking a lot of undeserved heat bordering on emotional abuse. Her strategy to this point has been to apologize left and right in an attempt to smooth it over and reset everything. It hasnât worked and if anything it has given the people giving her a hard time more of a license to push it even further. I think there comes a time when you just have to say enough and stop apologizing. I think that there is more strength and balance in believing in yourself and respectfully staying firm in your truth. From this position I think both sides have the best chance of talking it through and resolving it. What do you guys think? Do you find yourself constantly apologizing to certain people in your life? Is it helping or making the relationship more challenging? Any advice for my friend?
1146 Glaucus atlanticus
Glaucus atlanticus, parfois appelĂ© glaucus atlantique ou francisĂ© en glauque dans les Ă©crits anciens, est une petite espĂšce de nudibranche de la famille des GlaucidĂ©s. C'est un mollusque gastĂ©ropode dĂ©crit comme Ă©lĂ©gant par ses formes et ses couleurs, mĂȘlant le blanc et le gris perle Ă diffĂ©rents tons de bleu.
Il vit dans toutes les eaux tempĂ©rĂ©es ou tropicales, oĂč il flotte Ă la surface des eaux parmi le pleuston, la face ventrale tournĂ©e vers la surface. Il se nourrit principalement d'hydrozoaires dont il tire son pouvoir urticant, y compris pour l'Homme, en conservant certains nĂ©matocystes. Glaucus atlanticus est hermaphrodite et pond des chapelets d'Ćufs laissĂ©s Ă la dĂ©rive ou fixĂ©s sur les cadavres des proies des adultes.
Au cours du XIXe siĂšcle, plusieurs grands naturalistes, pour une bonne part franĂ§ais, l'ont dĂ©crit Ă plusieurs reprises, en dĂ©signant par de nombreux noms scientifiques diffĂ©rents chacune des formes, mais les Ă©tudes plus rĂ©centes ont conclu Ă la synonymie de l'ensemble de ces noms. G. atlanticus est trĂšs proche de Glaucus marginatus, l'unique autre espĂšce du genre Glaucus et de la famille â dans l'acception la plus stricte de cette derniĂšre â et qui Ă©tait autrefois placĂ©e dans un genre monotypique sĂ©parĂ©, Glaucilla.

1116 Sitting is Killing You
As we enter the second decade of the 21st century, there is one thing nearly all modern Americans have in common: we sit all the time. Though our great shift towards computer-based work has done great things for productivity, it has, unfortunately, done terrible things for our health. From increased risk of heart disease and obesity in the long term, to sharply hampered cholesterol maintenance in the short term, the negative health effects of sitting are starting to weigh heavily against the benefits. Even the medical field â the greatest advocates of reducing sitting time â is plagued by this new health issue. Though doctors and nurses get plenty of walking time, it usually falls to the secretaries, billers, and coders to do all the sitting. And, as we can see, something has to change.

1078 The Modular Synth
A long time ago, in a galaxy far away, before your local music shop was packed with the latest digital synths, even before the early analogue monosynths, if you wanted a synthesizer you had to make it yourself. Modular synthesis is not in itself a different type of synthesis, but refers to the fact that a synth would be built up from individual components (modules) , which would be linked together (patched) in a configuration decided by the person doing the building.
Compared with today's 'plug and play' synths which come with 100's of presets, GM soundsets, etc, this has the obvious disadvantage that 'recalling' a preset can only be done if your synth is patched together in exactly the same way every time and every controller has to be manually set to the same parameter.
However, the big advantage of Modular synthesis, of course, is that, providing you have the right components, you can build practically anything you want, without being constrained by the 'hardwired' configurations of modern factory built synthesizers.
The Pulsar/Scope Modular synth, like any other Modular 'soft synth' brings together the advantages of both Modular synths and modern factory built synths. Modular configurations can be saved as patches for total recall later on, and each patch can contain any number of presets, again for later recall. Furthermore, with a software modular, you can re-use each component as many times as you wish within one patch, you never run out of cables, you don't have to dedicate a whole room to the synth and the modules never suffer from physical damage. What's more, each parameter can be controlled by MIDI so parameter changes can be recorded into your sequencer in real-time.
1043 Monotribe, MIDI and me
When I heard about the monotribe, I had my doubts. Mostly that thereâs only one pattern, which is 8 steps long. Well, there are 8 extra steps for the drums, as well as a âflux modeâ which records your movements on the ribbon continuously. In that sense, it is limited, and is an instrument made to be played with your hands, rather than be programmed. But as it turned out, this was a design choice, and not a technical limitation. I can easily imagine why. They wanted it to seem as analog and playful as possible.
Same thing with MIDI. Officially, the monotribe doesnât support MIDI. It does however offer a sync pulse output and input. This allows it to be synced to other monotribes, modular synthesizers or even Korgâs own virtual iMS-20/iElectribe, using a special sync app on a second iPhone/Pod/Pad. However, the lack of MIDI is still a slight limitation.
1033 "I'm a technical lead on the Google+ team. Ask me anything."
I helped design and build a lot of the circles model and sharing UI for Google+. I was recruited to Google to work on "getting social right" in early 2010. Prior to that, I was CTO of Plaxo, and also its first employee (since March 2002). I've also spent many years working on open standards for the social web (OpenID, OAuth, Portable Contacts, WebFinger, etc.) Since I work for a big/public company (albeit a pretty cool one), I can't provide specific stats, dates for future features, or details of confidential code/algorithms. But I will do my best to be "refreshingly frank" about everything else. :)

962 25 Abandoned Soviet Monuments that look like they're from the Future | Crack Two
These structures were commissioned by former Yugoslavian president Josip Broz Tito in the 1960s and 70s to commemorate sites where WWII battles took place (like TjentiĆĄte, Kozara and KadinjaÄa), or where concentration camps stood (like Jasenovac and NiĆĄ). They were designed by different sculptors (DuĆĄan DĆŸamonja, Vojin BakiÄ, Miodrag ĆœivkoviÄ, Jordan and Iskra Grabul, to name a few) and architects (Bogdan BogdanoviÄ, Gradimir MedakoviÄ...), conveying powerful visual impact to show the confidence and strength of the Socialist Republic. In the 1980s, these monuments attracted millions of visitors per year, especially young pioneers for their "patriotic education." After the Republic dissolved in early 1990s, they were completely abandoned, and their symbolic meanings were forever lost.
From 2006 to 2009, Kempenaers toured around the ex-Yugoslavia region (now Croatia, Serbia, Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, etc.) with the help of a 1975 map of memorials, bringing before our eyes a series of melancholy yet striking images. His photos raise a question: can these former monuments continue to exist as pure sculptures? On one hand, their physical dilapidated condition and institutional neglect reflect a more general social historical fracturing. And on the other hand, they are still of stunning beauty without any symbolic significances. I know this may sound schizophrenic if you also read my last post. But maybe there are forms that can transcend meaning...

897 Generic Synth Preset Storage and Conversion
For my synths with preset storage and the ability to dump & load presets via midi sysex, I wanted to be able to feed the sysex of a synth into a software program which can
display the sound parameters in a meaningful form, and
convert the sound into the sysex format of any of my other presets synths
The generic patch storage format must display meaningful values for the parameters (filter envelope amount = 1/2 octave, envelope 1 attack = 50ms, etc) and convert between these values and a given synth's sysex (as much as possible - resolution probably isn't good enough to get envelope attack to exactly 50ms on each and every synth, and envelope shapes vary between synths, etc). The storage format will also store the original parameters, using the "native" value range of each parameter (e.g. filter cutoff frequency between 0 and 127) as well as the original sysex program as an ASCII hex dump.
Since I didn't find any software which could do this, I began writing my own in Java. I am concentrating on converting basic analog components; any on-board effects are not used.

This is a program for stretching the audio. It is suitable only for extreme sound stretching of the audio (like 50x) and for applying special effects by "spectral smoothing" the sounds. It can transform any sound/music to a texture. The program is Open-Source and it's released under the version 2 of the General Public License. You can download the source code for Linux or the Windows binaries.
Please note that this is suitable only for extreme time stretching (e.g. if have a melody of 3 minutes and you want to listen it in 3 hours). If you want "less extreme" time stretching, you can use a program which contains the SoundTouch library.

788 Setting Up Your Digital Camera For HDR Shooting
Youâve probably heard of High Dynamic Range (HDR) Photography, itâs made quite an entrance into the world of digital photography.
If you havenât, the HDR process is accomplished by taking multiple exposures of a high contrast scene (usually a landscape or cityscape), at different levels of brightness, and then combining the best light from each exposure into one image.
The end result is a stunning image that very closely resembles how the human eye views a scene. This process of digital manipulation has caused a bit of controversy and debate in the world of photography, especially with images that are âover-cooked.â One thing is for sure though, HDR is here to stay. When done right, this unique and in depth processing technique can produce beautiful works of art that mimic the way we view and remember a landscape or scene.
The above image is an example of what HDR processing can produce. This image, taken from the Big Island of Hawaii, would not be possible without HDR processing. It was taken around noon, the harshest light of the day. The first image is the best image my camera could produce given the situation. While still beautiful, there are obvious problems. Get ready, this article is going to show you how to take your digital camera and turn it into an HDR shooting machine!

About Beat Hauser, SPERRZONE
Beat Hauser is interested in industrial archaeology and history of Europe. His special area is the brewing industry of Switzerland and the former German Democratic Republic. Since 2003 he is taking pictures of industrial areas and abandoned places within all Europe. On his web site SPERRZONE (www.sperrzone.net) he does not only present his own pictures, but also some information about the related factories and places as well as historical photo post cards, old letter heads, labels, advertisings to document the history of the factories.
Most pictures are taken in abandoned factories. Abandoned places and industrial ruins are generally seen as ĂąÂÂspots of dirtĂąÂÂ and people feel uncomfortable around them. Often such places have a very long and interesting history, which seems almost forgotten today. Instead of the activity of former days there is nothing but silence and emptiness. Instead of windows, black holes are staring out of the walls. But very often the architecture of elapsed eras is attractive and astonishing. In combination with the emptiness and beginning decay, such places often spread the impression of a dream world. Decay and nature give new structures to strictly geometric forms and lines, e.g. in production halls. Moisture, moss and rust give new colors to gray halls. Beat Hauser tries to capture these impressions with his photographs. Aesthetics of decay is illustrated in its huge variety from huge industrial plants to small details.

767 The 5 types of programmers Â« Steven Benner's Blog
In my code journeys and programming adventures Iâve encountered many strange foes, and even stranger allies. Iâve identified at least five different kinds of code warriors, some make for wonderful comrades in arms, while others seem to foil my every plan.
However they all have their place in the pantheon of software development. Without a healthy mix of these different programming styles youâll probably find your projects either take too long to complete, are not stable enough or are too perfect for humans to look upon.
The code may not be pretty, but damnit, it works!
This guy is the foundation of your company. When something goes wrong he will fix it fast and in a way that wonât break again. Of course he doesnât care about how it looks, ease of use, or any of those other trivial concerns, but he will make it happen, without a bunch of talk or time-wasting nonsense. The best way to use this person is to point at a problem and walk away.
You want to do what to my code?
This guy doesnât care about your deadlines or budgets, those are insignificant when compared to the art form that is programming. When you do finally receive the finished product you will have no option but submit to the stunning glory and radiant beauty of perfectly formatted, no, perfectly beautiful code, that is so efficient that anything you would want to do to it would do nothing but defame a masterpiece. He is the only one qualified to work on his code.
Iâm a programmer, damnit. I donât write code.
His world has one simple truth; writing code is bad. If you have to write something then youâre doing it wrong. Someone else has already done the work so just use their code. He will tell you how much faster this development practice is, even though he takes as long or longer than the other programmers. But when you get the project it will only be 20 lines of actual code and will be very easy to read. It may not be very fast, efficient, or forward-compatible, but it will be done with the least effort required.
What do you want? It works doesnât it?
The guy who couldnât care less about quality, thatâs someone elses job. He accomplishes the tasks that heâs asked to do, quickly. You may not like his work, the other programmers hate it, but management and the clients love it. As much pain as he will cause you in the future, he is single-handedly keeping your deadlines so you canât scoff at it (no matter how much you want to).
Well, thatâs a possibility, but in practice this might be a better alternative.
This guy is more interested the options than what should be done. He will spend 80% of his time staring blankly at his computer thinking up ways to accomplish a task, 15% of his time complaining about unreasonable deadlines, 4% of his time refining the options, and 1% of his time writing code. When you receive the final work it will always be accompanied by the phrase âif I had more time I could have done this the right wayâ.
Personally, Iâd have to classify myself as the perfectionist. So, which type of programmer are you? Or perhaps you know another programming archetype that is missing from my list? Post a comment below and Iâll add it to a new updated list.

756 Matmos - Supreme Balloon
The arcs of rising and falling pitches that start this song reminded us of a rainbow, and the title stuck: any resemblance to fluttering symbols of homo-nationalist pride are side effects. People have asked us about the Latin kitsch aspect of the song, and we plead guilty to a great love of the Richard Hayman "The Genuine Electric Latin Love Machine" Moog novelty LP from 1969. Having lived in the Mission District of San Francisco for seven years up until our recent move to Baltimore, we have had enough casual exposure to actual Mexican and Salvadorean music to know that this bears only the faintest relation to the real thing. Keith Fullerton Whitman contributed some tasty squelches and zaps from his Doepfer modular synth to brighten the corners, but not everything on here is that high-tech. Consider the lowly stylophone, a handheld novelty instrument popular with British schoolkids that was immortalized during the rave era in the cheesy techno banger "Stylophonia" by the fabulously named UK crew Two Little Boys. The stylophone that is played on this record was sent to us in the mail by a well-wisher and we thank him for this unexpected present. We are even more grateful to Safety Scissors, who forgave us when M. C. Schmidt broke his MS-20 filter knob by tweaking it too vigorously while recording the "horn" part of this song. It's all been patched up now.

Le PrĂ©-Mastering audio est une Ă©tape situĂ©e aprĂšs lâenregistrement et le mixage, en fin de la chaĂźne de production audio, câest la derniĂšre optimisation du projet. NĂ©anmoins, câest la partie du processus la moins connue tant par les professionnels que par les artistes. Le manque de connaissances Ă ce sujet peut amener Ă se poser plusieurs questions :
Â« Quelle est son utilitĂ© ? Pourquoi un individu appelĂ© ingĂ©nieur de Mastering toucherait Ă mon travail que je considĂšre comme Ă©tant abouti ? âŠ Â»
De plus si les personnes agissant en amont de la production audio et plus particuliĂšrement au niveau du mixage ne connaissent pas de quelle faĂ§on et dans quelle direction sera finalisĂ© leur projet, des erreurs ne pourront ĂȘtre Ă©vitĂ©s et les bĂ©nĂ©fices apportĂ©s par une Ă©tape de finalisation ne seront pas optimaux.
On peut aussi dĂ©duire quâune activitĂ© mal connue est inĂ©vitablement victime de prĂ©jugĂ©s et de fausses interprĂ©tations.
Dans ce mĂ©moire, je porterai mon attention sur les moyens dâoptimiser la transition entre le mixage et le PrĂ©-Mastering.
En effet, lors dâune sĂ©ance dâenregistrement, les techniciens concernĂ©s agissent toujours en pensant Ă lâĂ©tape suivante, c'est-Ă -dire celle du mixage. La dĂ©marche Ă suivre devrait ĂȘtre la mĂȘme au moment de mixer Ă lâattention du PrĂ©-Mastering. De cette faĂ§on, chacun remplit son rĂŽle de faĂ§on optimale et le produit peut prendre toute son ampleur.
Pour ce faire il faut donc Ă©claircir les moyens et les logiques utilisĂ©es dans les studios de Mastering et mettre en Ă©vidence les bĂ©nĂ©fices quâon en retire.
AprĂšs un bref historique, pour Â« planter le dĂ©cor Â», je commencerai par mettre en avant les diffĂ©rents avantages que lâon peut tirer du PrĂ©-Mastering et pourquoi il est indispensable dans la chaĂźne de production audio. Puis jâexpliquerai les moyens utilisĂ©s pour perfectionner le projet sonore en faisant un aperĂ§u des outils et de la maniĂšre dont sâen servent les ingĂ©nieurs de Mastering.
Enfin, je mettrai en Ă©vidence les efforts qui peuvent ĂȘtre fait dĂ©s le mixage afin de faciliter et de profiter pleinement des amĂ©liorations pouvant ĂȘtre apportĂ©es lors de la finalisation.
Le PrĂ©-Mastering nâest Ă priori praticable que par des techniciens dotĂ©s dâune longue expĂ©rience. Le propos de ce mĂ©moire est de dĂ©couvrir et dâĂ©clairer une activitĂ©, tout en dĂ©veloppant les bĂ©nĂ©fices quâelle peut engendrer. Je prendrai aussi position sur les attitudes et les pratiques Ă adopter en amont de la production audio pour profiter pleinement du PrĂ©-Mastering. Le sujet choisi est le reflet de ma curiositĂ© et de la volontĂ© de travailler en harmonie avec les diffĂ©rents acteurs du milieu de la production audio.

Facebook has become the event planning system. Itâs the place where you have all your friends (and other people) somewhat sorted and organized. All in all, itâs the organized system in the chaos that is otherwise known as the internets.
This is leading Facebook towards a virtual monopoly. There are lots of issues with monopolies, but one of the more interesting ones when it comes to Facebook is the impact is has on our social lives, online as well as offline.
718 Musiques - H O R S N O R M E
Dossier : OĂč trouver de la musique sur internet ?
Par Ed End le samedi, mai 29 2010, 10:07
fĂȘte de la musique
oĂč trouver de la musique
I. Pourquoi chercher de la musique sur internet ?
Pour rĂ©pondre Ă cette question on peut se poser une autre question : OĂč trouver de la musique en dehors d'internet ?
A part quelques exceptions Ă Paris, la plupart des disquaires indĂ©pendants ont disparus. Les supermarchĂ©s ont trĂšs peu de choix. Les magasins spĂ©cialisĂ©s, par exemple la Fnac ont un nombre limitĂ© de rĂ©fĂ©rences disponibles Ă des prix pas toujours accessibles.
Cependant il reste des solutions intĂ©ressantes : le marchĂ© de l'occasion, acheter les albums lors des concerts Ă des prix plus abordables ou encore moins onĂ©reux les emprunter Ă des mĂ©diathĂšques. Convertir en mp3 les anciens supports, k7, cd, vinyles et Ă©changer des albums numĂ©risĂ©s dont on dĂ©tient les originaux, lĂ©galement, dans le cadre de la copie privĂ©.
Si malgrĂ© cela tant de personnes cherchent de la musique sur internet, c'est :
a. Parce qu'il y a beaucoup plus de choix.
A l'heure actuelle, par exemple, le dĂ©veloppement de la musique libre est tel qu'il est impossible de suivre l'intĂ©gralitĂ© des Ćuvres qui sont publiĂ©es.
b. Parce que le coĂ»t est quasi nul.
- Soit en raison de la disparition du support, il n'y a plus de coĂ»t de diffusion, plus de coĂ»t de fabrication, juste Ă©ventuellement un coup de crĂ©ation. MalgrĂ© cela dans le domaine commercial les magasins en ligne (Itune et autres consorts) sont loin de rĂ©percuter la disparition des coups sur leurs tarifs.
- Soit en raison de ce que les lobbys et le gouvernement appĂšlent piratage, pour ma part je considĂšre qu'ils font une faute d'orthographe et prĂ©fĂšre parler de partage. Un exemple flagrant de leur mauvaise foie, contrairement Ă ce qu'a prĂ©tendu un jour un patron de la Fnac, un album n'est pas une baguette de pain, passer l'Ă©tape de crĂ©ation du premier exemplaire, il est duplicable Ă l'infini, ni farine, ni travail supplĂ©mentaire, autrement dit, je ne connais aucune baguette de pain qui puisse nourrir toute la planĂšte.
c. Parce que la dĂ©couverte est facilitĂ©e.
Depuis que les majors ont pris le contrĂŽle des mĂ©dias radio et tĂ©lĂ©, Ă part dans de rares mĂ©dias papiers spĂ©cialisĂ©s, et certains gratuits culturels, c'est trĂšs difficile de faire des dĂ©couvertes. ConcrĂštement avec un logiciel de peer to peer, on Ă©tend trĂšs rapidement la diversitĂ© des musiques que l'on apprĂ©cie. DĂ©jĂ pour la simple raison que dans tous les genres, au-delĂ du mainstream des majors il existe des Ćuvres de qualitĂ©.
d. Pour pouvoir essayer la musique avant de l'acheter.
Une bonne faĂ§on de se prĂ©munir des singles qui pourraient permettent d'Ă©couler des albums bĂąclĂ©s.

660 What's Next: fully ergonomic laptops? | VentureBeat
When the first laptops were created around 1979 â laptops like the Grid Compass â ergonomics was not exactly a core concern. The screens were only 2-4 inches, RAM was a few hundred kilobytes, and batteries were huge. The Osbourne 1 weighed 24 pounds, perhaps making it the first portable computer and dumbbell. Hooray for convergence!
Modern clamshell and tablet designs have solved many of these issues: screen sizes exceed 17â, RAM can be several gigabytes, and weight can be less than three pounds, deservedly earning names like the Air. What hasnât been solved is ergonomics, and thatâs a costly problem.
The U.S. Department of Labor reported 650,000 cases of work-related muscular disorders, costing businesses an estimated $20 billion in medical claims and lost productivity. An ergonomically ideal computer setup aligns the top of the screen with our eye level, lets our arms and wrists straighten, and allows our shoulders to relax.
Because laptop screens are attached to their keyboards, they require a damaging trade-off: place the laptop at eye level and hunch our shoulders, or place the keyboard at arm level and bend our neck. Most laptop keyboards are also rectangles, requiring wrist twisting. The result is chronic neck, shoulder, and wrist pain, and with laptop use increasing, this problem will only get worse.

608 Stories In Flight | HTML5/CSS3 Cheatsheet
Here are some simple cut-and-paste examples of HTML5/CSS3 features that are currently (mid-2010) usable across a number of web browsers, chief among them Firefox, Safari, Chrome and Opera.
For many of the CSS3 examples, Internet Explorer is the lone holdout with a limited number of workarounds, however these features degrade gracefully and may still be useful on new projects as long as this limitation is kept in mind.
Please note: With the exception of SVGWeb, no Internet Explorer workarounds have been included on this page - most of the examples will therefore not work in IE6, IE7 or IE8.

Itâs quite surprising that its guts are not that complicated as it may seem looking at itâs interface. Very clean layout and good engineering (with tons of silicone glue, WTF?). The only con is that in order to remove those original cheeks I have to disassemble all the PCBâs attached to the front panel â and probably all the pots! Teh drama.

Sound synthesis and sound design
Music has brought pleasure and entertainment to mankind throughout the whole of history. Each person is by nature equipped with one of the most elaborate and emotional musical instruments; the human voice. Whenever people feel good music seems to fit the occasion, and it is considered quite natural to hum or sing a song. Musical instruments have brought their own moods to music and at the current moment in human evolution there is an enormous variety of musical instruments available. The twentieth century has seen the development of a range of new and exciting electronic musical instruments. These electronic instruments are very flexible, they can produce a wide range of timbres and can be amplified to whatever loudness level sounds best for the occasion. Most of these electronic instruments are played by a keyboard, but in essence the keyboard can be replaced by any electromechanical device that is able to transform a movement caused by a human interaction into an electrical signal that can drive the sound generating core of the electronic instrument.
All sorts of technical and scientific developments have helped to create electronic instruments and the human interface to play them. Still, music is an art and not really a hard science, although music and sound have for a long time been subject to various scientific research. An important realization is that science can not really explain why much music is such a pleasure to listen to and such a joy to make. Which is not a bad thing, as probably no one is waiting for science to take the fun out of music by applying formalized rules and templates on what is also subject to âfeelâ. So, although this book covers techniques that lean heavily on scientific research, the application of these techniques will in general be aimed at creating fun. There are a lot of professionals working with sound and even more people that make music for their personal enjoyment. Mastery of sound synthesis is valuable to all of them. Still, it wonât be easy to please everyone with one single book, as some people will be more interested in how things work and others might want practical examples that just work. The aim of this book is that it can at least be used as a practical guide in workshops and courses in electronic music, covering some essential basics that are needed to operate the equipment used in sound synthesis in a way that makes some sense. Additionally it can be used to explore techniques to find out how they can help in the development of oneâs own musical style.
Sound synthesis is the art of creating sounds by using suitable electronic means, using either analog or digital electronic devices. Sound design is the art of creating particular sounds using sound synthesis techniques. The definition of sound design as used here might be confusing to some, as the name sound design is also used in the discipline in industrial design that occupies itself with how mass produced objects should sound. Examples are how the sound of cars or ladyshaves are âdesignedâ to sound pleasing while in use. Which of course has nothing to do at all with music or sound synthesizers. This book puts the emphasis on the various synthesis techniques for musical purposes and how to setup sound synthesizers to create a large range of characteristic musical sounds. The art of musical sound design is left to the artist.

484 Why did so many successful entrepreneurs and startups come out of PayPal? Answered by Insiders
Why did so many successful entrepreneurs and startups come out of PayPal? I long have been fascinated by the extraordinary achievement from the ex-Paypal team and wonder about the reasons behind their success. In the past, mass media tried to answer this question several times but still couldnât give us a clear answer.
I once asked David Sacks the same question during an event in Los Angeles. He told me the secret is that Paypal has built a âscrappyâ culture. No matter what problems they faced, they would find a way to solve them. I kind of got the idea, but was still confused about the execution details.
So when I saw some of the past Paypal employees answering this question on Quora, I was super excited! After all, they should be the only ones who can tell people the inside stories.
Below are some highlights of their answers. *If you want to check out the sources or leave your comments, please go to here and here.
On Talent Management
âPeter and Max assembled an unusual critical mass of entrepreneurial talent, primarily due to their ability to recognize young people with extraordinary ability (the median age of *execs* on the S1 filing was 30). But the poor economy allowed us to close an abnormal number of offers, as virtually nobody other than eBay and (in part) google was hiring in 2000-02.â (by Keith Rabois, former Executive Vice President of Paypal)
âExtreme Focus (driven by Peter): Peter required that everyone be tasked with exactly one priority. He would refuse to discuss virtually anything else with you except what was currently assigned as your #1 initiative. Even our annual review forms in 2001 required each employee to identify their single most valuable contribution to the company.â (by Keith Rabois, former Executive Vice President of Paypal)
âDedication to individual accomplishment: Teams were almost considered socialist institutions. Most great innovations at PayPal were driven by one person who then conscripted others to support, adopt, implement the new idea. If you identified the 8-12 most critical innovations at PayPal (or perhaps even the most important 25), almost every one had a single person inspire it (and often it drive it to implementation). As a result, David enforced an anti-meeting culture where any meeting that included more than 3-4 people was deemed suspect and subject to immediate adjournment if he gauged it inefficient. Our annual review forms in 2002 included a direction to rate the employee on âavoids imposing on othersâ time, e.g. scheduling unnecessary meetings.â (by Keith Rabois, former Executive Vice President of Paypal)
âRefusal to accept constraints, external or internal:We were expected to pursue our #1 priority with extreme dispatch (NOW) and vigor. To borrow an apt phrase, employees were expected to âcome to work every day willing to be fired, to circumvent any order aimed at stopping your dream.â Jeremy Stoppelman has relayed elsewhere the story about an email he sent around criticizing management that he expected to get him fired and instead got him promoted. Peter did not accept no for answer: If you couldnât solve the problem, someone else would be soon assigned to do it.â (by Keith Rabois, former Executive Vice President of Paypal)
âDriven problem solvers: PayPal had a strong bias toward hiring (and promoting / encouraging, as Keith mentions) smart, driven problem solvers, rather than subject matter experts. Very few of the top performers at the company had any prior experience with payments, and many of the best employees had little or no prior background building Internet products. I worked on the fraud analytics team at PayPal, and most of our best people had never before done anything related to fraud detection. If heâd approached things âtraditionallyâ, Max would have gone out and hired people who had been building logistic regression models for banks for 20 years but never innovated, and fraud losses would likely have swallowed the company.â (by Mike Greenfield, former Sr. Fraud R&D Scientist of Paypal)
âSelf-sufficiency â individuals and small teams were given fairly complex objectives and expected to figure out how to achieve them on their own. If you needed to integrate with an outside vendor, you picked up the phone yourself and called; you didnât wait for a BD person to become available. You did (the first version of) mockups and wireframes yourself; you didnât wait for a designer to become available. You wrote (the first draft of) site copy yourself; you didnât wait for a content writer.â (by Yee Lee, former Product & BU GM of Paypal)
On Culture & Ideology
âExtreme bias towards action â early PayPal was simply a really *productive* workplace. This was partly driven by the culture of self-sufficiency. PayPal is and was, after all, a web service; and the company managed to ship prodigious amounts of relatively high-quality web software for a lot of years in a row early on. Yes, we had the usual politics between functional groups, but either individual heroes or small, high-trust teams more often than not found ways to deliver projects on-time.â (by Yee Lee, former Product & BU GM of Paypal)
âWillingness to try â even in a data-driven culture, youâll always run in to folks who either donât believe you have collected the right supporting data for a given decision or who just arenât comfortable when data contradicts their gut feeling. In many companies, those individuals would be the death of decision-making. At PayPal, I felt like you could almost always get someone to give it a *try* and then let performance data tell us whether to maintain the decision or rollback.â (by Yee Lee, former Product & BU GM of Paypal)
âData-driven decision making â PayPal was filled with smart, opinionated people who were often at logger-heads. The way to win arguments was to bring data to bear. So you never started a sentence like this âI feel like itâs a problem that our users canât do Xâ, instead youâd do your homework first and then come to the table with â35% of our [insert some key metric here] are caused by the lack of X functionalityâŠâ (by Yee Lee, former Product & BU GM of Paypal)
âRadical transparency on metrics: All employees were expected to be facile with the metrics driving the business. Otherwise, how could one expect each employee to make rational calculations and decisions on their own every day? To enforce this norm, almost every all-hands meeting consisted of distributing a printed Excel spreadsheet to the assembled masses and Peter conducting a line by line review of our performance (this is only a modest exaggeration).â (by Keith Rabois, former Executive Vice President of Paypal)
âVigorous debate, often via email: Almost every important issue had champions and critics. These were normally resolved not by official edict but by a vigorous debate that could be very intense. Being able to articulate and defend a strategy or product in a succinct, compelling manner with empirical analysis and withstand a withering critique was a key attribute of almost every key contributor. I still recall the trepidation I confronted when I was informed that I needed to defend the feasibility of my favorite âbabyâ to Max for the first time.â (by Keith Rabois, former Executive Vice President of Paypal)
âExtreme Pressure â PayPal was a very difficult business with many major issues to solve. We were able to see our colleagues work under extreme pressure and hence we learned who we could rely on and trust.â (by Keith Rabois, former Executive Vice President of Paypal)

Readable and maintainable code is something to be proud of in a finished product. We can share it with others, contribute to other projects, and reuse code from applications we wrote months or even years ago.
This article will detail the fifteen most important best practices when writing readable code.
474 Why Intelligent People Fail
Why Intelligent People Fail
Content from Sternberg, R. (1994). In search of the human mind. New York: Harcourt Brace.
1. Lack of motivation. A talent is irrelevant if a person is not motivated to use it. Motivation may be external (for example, social approval) or internal (satisfaction from a job well-done, for instance). External sources tend to be transient, while internal sources tend to produce more consistent performance.
2. Lack of impulse control. Habitual impulsiveness gets in the way of optimal performance. Some people do not bring their full intellectual resources to bear on a problem but go with the first solution that pops into their heads.
3. Lack of perserverance and perseveration. Some people give up too easily, while others are unable to stop even when the quest will clearly be fruitless.
4. Using the wrong abilities. People may not be using the right abilities for the tasks in which they are engaged.
5. Inability to translate thought into action. Some people seem buried in thought. They have good ideas but rarely seem able to do anything about them.
6. Lack of product orientation. Some people seem more concerned about the process than the result of activity.
7. Inability to complete tasks. For some people nothing ever draws to a close. Perhaps itâs fear of what they would do next or fear of becoming hopelessly enmeshed in detail.
8. Failure to initiate. Still others are unwilling or unable to initiate a project. It may be indecision or fear of commitment.
9. Fear of failure. People may not reach peak performance because they avoid the really important challenges in life.
10. Procrastination. Some people are unable to act without pressure. They may also look for little things to do in order to put off the big ones.
11. Misattribution of blame. Some people always blame themselves for even the slightest mishap. Some always blame others.
12. Excessive self-pity. Some people spend more time feeling sorry for themselves than expending the effort necessary to overcome the problem.
13. Excessive dependency. Some people expect others to do for them what they ought to be doing themselves.
14. Wallowing in personal difficulties. Some people let their personal difficulties interfere grossly with their work. During the course of life, one can expect some real joys and some real sorrows. Maintaining a proper perspective is often difficult.
15. Distractibility and lack of concentration. Even some very intelligent people have very short attention spans.
16. Spreading oneself too think or too thick. Undertaking too many activities may result in none being completed on time. Undertaking too few can also result in missed opportunities and reduced levels of accomplishment.
17. Inability to delay gratification. Some people reward themselves and are rewarded by others for finishing small tasks, while avoiding bigger tasks that would earn them larger rewards.
18. Inability to see the forest for the trees. Some people become obsessed with details and are either unwilling or unable to see or deal with the larger picture in the projects they undertake.
19. Lack of balance between critical, analytical thinking and creative, synthetic thinking. It is important for people to learn what kind of thinking is expected of them in each situation.
20. Too little or too much self-confidence. Lack of self-confidence can gnaw away at a personâs ability to get things done and become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Conversely, individuals with too much self-confidence may not know when to admit they are wrong or in need of self-improvement.
464 Ksplice Â» Attack of the Cosmic Rays! - System administration and software blog
Itâs a well-documented fact that RAM in modern computers is susceptible to occasional random bit flips due to various sources of noise, most commonly high-energy cosmic rays. By some estimates, you can even expect error rates as high as one error per 4GB of RAM per day! Many servers these days have ECC RAM, which uses extra bits to store error-correcting codes that let them correct most bit errors, but ECC RAM is still fairly rare in desktops, and unheard-of in laptops.
For me, bitflips due to cosmic rays are one of those problems I always assumed happen to âother peopleâ. I also assumed that even if I saw random cosmic-ray bitflips, my computer would probably just crash, and Iâd never really be able to tell the difference from some random kernel bug.
A few weeks ago, though, I encountered some bizarre behavior on my desktop, that honestly just didnât make sense. I spent about half an hour digging to discover what had gone wrong, and eventually determined, conclusively, that my problem was a single undetected flipped bit in RAM. I canât prove whether the problem was due to cosmic rays, bad RAM, or something else, but in any case, I hope you find this story interesting and informative.

440 A List Apart: Articles: Taking Advantage of HTML5 and CSS3 with Modernizr
Today, CSS-based layouts are commonplace and every browser has pretty solid support for them. But now we have CSS3 and HTML5, and the situation is repeating itselfâdifferent browsers demonstrate varying levels of support for these new technologies. Weâve smartened up, however, and no longer employ CSS hacks nor use browser sniffingâan unreliable, poor practice. Weâve also convinced more and more clients that websites donât need to look exactly the same in every browser. So how do we deal with this new but familiar problem? Simple: We use feature detection, which means that we do not ask the browser âwho are you?â and make unreliable assumptions from there on. Instead we ask the browser, âcan you do this and that?â Itâs a simple way to test browser capabilities, but doing all these tests manually all the time gets tiresome. To solve that problem (and others), you can use Modernizr.
