DHT, Kademlia, caching impact Show more
I wonder what is the impact of caching on mutable values in #Kademlia-like #DHT.
I mean, the caching algorithm is perfectly sound for constant values, but mutable values are not mutated on all peers having stored that value. So, if my understanding is correct, this results in view fragmentation.
I suppose that the re-publish algorithm could solve this with a smart merge strategy depending on the nature of the published data, but that sounds fragile.
My post on implementing search and comments in a blog built by a static site generator is up. #Hugo
You can add your WordPress site to the Fediverse by installing an ActivityPub plugin.
This lets anyone on Mastodon etc follow your site, comment on posts and share them on the Fediverse.
There are two WordPress ActivityPub plugins available right now:
An example of a WordPress site using Pterotype is WeDistribute:
You want the full bundle. Mickael Kerrisk's The Linux Programming Interface book and the Rust programming language book should really be on your bookshelves.
Building sites with a static site generator and a text theme. Using lynx. That's more and more my mind set. Or leaving the field altogether to go live in the mountains.
Firefox admits they will eventually be sending all of your DNS to Cloudflare. Cloudflare will monetize your internet browsing, no matter how much their PR people say they are.
If you want to disable that, go to "about:config", and set "network.trr.mode" to 5.
The values are: 0 - default off, 1 - race, 2 TRR first, 3 TRR only, 4 shadow, 5 off by choice
"Python String Emptiness Test"
=> What's the most self-explanatory and safest way of checking if a Python string is empty?
Not a simple question, unfortunately, and no universal answer.
I have a question about #Python, code readability, and #SecureProgramming. I'm planning to do a blog post about this, but I would like to have some numbers about the community (and comments if you have some).
If you have a Twitter account, I would appreciate if you could vote there. https://twitter.com/X_Cli_Public/status/1108842982680219649
I wish Mastodon had the poll feature so I could create it here instead.
On my thread yesterday, @firstname.lastname@example.org and @email@example.com disagreed with my conclusion. In particular, they pointed me to the KeeChallenge plugin which allows #KeePass to use #YubiKey via an offline challenge-response scheme.

WordPress 5.1–critical exploit chain that enables an unauthenticated attacker to gain remote code execution on any WordPress installation:
– exploit is possible due to a CSRF vulnerability in comment forms
– fixed in WordPress 5.1.1

I feel like a yo-yo, but I can't remember why. Probably because I am old.
But that's good. Sort of.

I learned a lot of stuff from this document, including locked mounts.
