90% of my job is...

  • Directing people to read the documentation.
  • In all seriousness though its taking requirements and implementing them.
  • Sometimes its in very old bad code, some ok code, and sometimes some really good code.
  • The hard part is understanding the big picture when there are thousands of tables, separate systems that need to talk to each other and with almost none of it documented.
  • Exactly my job real description.
  • Fiddling...
  • I’m always fiddling with something.
  • Code, design, copy, whatever.
  • I’m a fiddler.
  • Honestly 90 % of my job is refactoring legacy code to the point in which it is usable & wondering if my client will pay me for it.
  • If crime-fighting half-man/half-sharks can do it, so can you.
  • We’re a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
  • We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.

FireHOL: A firewall for humans

  • FireHOL is a language (and a program to run it) which builds secure, stateful firewalls from easy to understand, human-readable configurations.
  • FireQOS is a program which sets up traffic shaping from an easy-to-understand and flexible configuration file.
  • FireHOL is an iptables firewall generator producing stateful iptables packet filtering firewalls, on Linux hosts and routers with any number of network interfaces, any number of routes, any number of services served, any number of complexity between variations of the services (including positive and negative expressions).
  • Also, FireHOL produces stateful iptables packet filtering firewalls (and possibly, the only generic tool today that does that for all services in both directions of the firewall).
  • As an IT executive, responsible for many dozens of Linux systems, I needed a firewalling solution that would allow me and my team to have a clear and simple view of what is happening on each server, as far as firewalling is concerned.

10 Best Tools to Start Selling from Your JAMstack Website

  • 💰. If you need to charge credit cards, you’ll want to use a payment gateway service like Stripe.
  • They provide an elegant dashboard, easy-to-use tools for refunding payments or handling disputed transactions, integration with hundreds of other services (including others in this list!), and a developer-friendly API for connecting their platform to your project.
  • A service like Snipcart can be a great choice for quickly adding e-commerce to your JAMstack site, since it provides just the right balance of simple set-up and deep customization.
  • If you want to provide subscribers with special newsletters, access to paywalled content, and more, you’ll want to go with a specialized subscription service like Memberful.
  • Finally, you’ll want a website with an easy-to-use CMS in order to manage your products and categories, generate a secure and stable static site, and create a truly unique experience for your fans, members, or customers.

Researchers 3D print a wormhole… for sound waves

  • And even if, after reading the paper, I’m not sure that the researchers have made fake wormholes, I simply can’t not tell you about it.
  • The paper in question makes use of something called transformation optics to create a wormhole for sound waves.
  • Bending and stretching in space correspond to changes in refractive index in optics.
  • The flip side of transformation optics is that the behavior of a wave going through an optical (or mechanical) system is the same as an object traveling through curved space.
  • The sound waves do behave exactly as you would expect matter to if it approached and went through a wormhole.
  • The analogy is a mathematical one: wave propagation and space-time have similar (but not identical) equations.
  • Therefore, we can learn a lot by studying optics or acoustics experiments that mimic black holes or wormholes or anything else.
