2008.08.04 – 2008.08.21, more technical blah

Ideas ranging between “unconventional” and “BS”

Political stuff

  • Corporate Swine – certain companies, and why they suck.
  • They Rule – “They Rule aims to provide a glimpse of some of the relationships of the US ruling class.” The page is almost all Flash-based, but given its interface I don’t see how else it could have been done. Check it out.
  • SaveNetRadio



  • Netlabels collection at Internet Archive; “This collection hosts complete, freely downloadable/streamable, often Creative Commons-licensed catalogs of ‘virtual record labels’.”
  • Discogs – lots of information on music from obscure labels and artists
  • Tangerine Dream – I wrote this band down in 2005 and I haven’t listened to them yet
  • “My Freedom” by Beat Foundation – yet another ambient (or chillout?) track I liked, from Cafe Del Mar: Ibiza vol. 3 (Amazon)

Literature and Other Stuff With Words

Technical Stuff

  • SynDEx from INRIA – “a system level CAD software based on the “algorithm- architecture adequation” (AAA) methodology, for rapid prototyping and optimizing the implementation of distributed real-time embedded applications onto “multicomponent” architectures.”
  • Data visualization tools for Linux – covers GnuPlot, Octave, Scilab, MayaVi, Maxima, OpenDX
  • gnuplot tips & not so frequently asked questions
  • memcached – “a high-performance, distributed memory object caching system, generic in nature, but intended for use in speeding up dynamic web applications by alleviating database load.”
  • BeOS bootdisk collection which I have no idea if I’ll ever use but here it is
  • Thesis paper from Mark Samuel Miller (Robust Composition: Towards a Unified Approach to Access Control and Concurrency Control)
  • Another thesis paper, by D. P. Reed (Naming and Synchronization in a Decentralized Computer System)
  • P2P-Radio – Internet radio distributed via peer-to-peer means
  • PGP Digital Timestamping Service
  • Manent – algorithmically strong backup and archival program
  • DSPACE – an open source solution for accessing, managing, and preserving scholarly works
