This week’s Lazy Reading just built itself up quickly; autumn arrives in the northern hemisphere and suddenly a lot more activity starts going on.
- 9vx, Plan 9 as a user process. (sorta like a vkernel?) Via Sascha Wildner on IRC.
- Found at the same location: You are not expected to understand this.
- Michael W. Lucas, sometime BSD author, has 3 short horror stories available for free, for a limited time. Be warned; there’s no BSD in these stories, as far as I can tell. In fact, they contain genuine horror, not “and then… the server ran Windows ME!” kind of nerd horror.
- Also from Mr. Lucas, it’s always nice to see DragonFly hit production.
- A nice explanation of the recent TLS vulnerability. (via)
- Chumby creator Bunnie Huang’s look at future hardware is optimistic, but I like it. If nothing else, it implies easier driver support. If that names seems familier, Bunnie’s MicroSD saga was previously linked here. (via)
- This short Overcoming Bias post is about nanotech, but a certain sentence in there struck me as a good way to determine how you plan out your computer infrastructure (via):
There are four ways to deal with system damage: 1) reliability, 2) redundancy, 3) repair, and 4) replacement.
