Yes, it's about time for me to have a blog, too, I guess. I call this one a shoutblog, it's an XMPP bot I can easily talk (and hence post) to.


VAR will only work with factual decisions, not subjective ones. Blatant red card but when based on a ref's opinion, VAR pointless.

I do agree. See Video assistant referee system 'a shambles' and VAR confusion for details.


From mod_swift :

We chose the traditional Swift approach: Make something barely usable, though demoable, and release it with a 3.0 version tag. Then hope that the community kicks in and fills open spots.

Helge really hits a nail (me), it's the reason why I dislike Swift so much. However, mod_swift isn't nonsense.

I had to create and transfer a large tar archive across the net, which took some time and made me revisit the status quo of open source compressors afterwards. I could provide some stats, but TL;DR : pixz really shines and there's absolutely no reason not to use it. I also tested Zstandard because cutting edge and everything, but found pixz to perform much better for my workload.


A Look at Nanomsg and Scalability Protocols (Why ZeroMQ Shouldn't Be Your First Choice) really nails it (and also provides a great overview). After having had continued issues with ZeroMQ 's thread management during teardown, I gave Nanomsg a try. I managed to quickly get the necessary rewrite done and all issues instantly went away.

I'm aware of the fact that Nanomsg is dead now , but the existing code does work nevertheless.
