- PyClockPro the CLOCK-Pro implementation has been ported as go-clockpro for Go (golang) by Damian Gryski. That's nice. It's really nice to notice that even smaller library projects released as open source can be useful for people.
- At times the Nominatim API for OpenStreetMap
is really super slow. Requets can easily take 20+ seconds. For many
cases, that's simply way too slow. I hope the performance would be more
- Read plan for Go 1.4+ Garbage Collection (GC) Plan and Roadmap. Target is to reduce GC latency. Solution is hybrid GC which uses hybrid stop the world (STW)/ concurrent garbage collector (CGC). In jargon: non-generatinol, non-moving, concurrent, tri-color, mark and sweep collector. 1.6+ will probably add generational collection with nursery (new) and mature (old) spaces.
- Rant: Broken links and ultimate user tracking
It's seems that Google is getting so eager with tracking everything,
that they totally break basic features with that. Unfortunately I've
been seeing that with other crappy sites like LinkedIn too.
just got user profile link to one email account. But I can't add it to
Google+ because it requires me to sign up with the email address the
invite is sent to. Even if I strip the url from all the crap, except the
ID, it's clear that the url only contains 'invite id' for tracking
purposes. There's no reference to the user inviting me at all.
just so much hate crappy sites, which break everything doing junk like
that. If there's public resource being shared. It would be totally
natural that the link shared would work for everyone. Now in this case,
even if I'm signed in to Google+, when I want to visit the inviters
profile Google+ requires me to sign up. Totally screwed uber tracking
junk. How about making systems that would be somehow sanely usable,
without all that spying stuff.
Same stuff applies to ultra crappy
LinkedIn and Facebook shares. I can see the title of the page they're
referring to. If I click the link, there's some kind of sign in now
crap. Why I would like to sign in to see the referred site? No * king
way. Usually I just copy paste the title of the page in quotes to Google
and get what I want, because all that tracking crap prevented following
the link in any sane way.
After all, I coudln't accept the
invite, nor add the person to my current profile, because name used is
generic, and there's no reference to the user profile. There's only that
crappy invite id.
Similarly if there's interesting G+ dicussion,
if you share it as URL, it's most probably broken, because their lame
engineers just can't get it right.
Do you agree with me?
