Crap4j Home
Crap4j is a Java implementation of the CRAP (Change Risk Analysis and Predictions) software metric – a mildly offensive metric name to help protect you from truly offensive code.

The CRAP metric combines cyclomatic complexity and code coverage from automated tests (e.g. JUnit tests) to help you identify code that might be particularly difficult to understand, test, or maintain – the kind of code that makes developers say: “This is crap!” or, if they are stuck maintaining it, “Oh, crap!”.

Sysadmin/Apprentices - GNOME Wiki!
One of the main obstacles we always had with the SysadminTeam has always been the lack of man power. Welcoming someone into the team meant trusting someone well enough to grant administrative privileges with all the consequences that takes in. Additionally even in the case we trusted the person who was applying for the role the training period was going to cost more time to an existing team member than it could afford in terms of time and things that could have been accomplished while at it with a direct benefit of the GNOME Project and Community.

Another problem that arose in the past has been our Puppet repository being completely private as it was storing certificates, passwords and other sensitive information we wouldn't want to make public.

With the advent of FreeIPA and more fine-grained permissions and the deployment of hiera-eyaml-gpg (and the migration of other sensitive information away from the Puppet repository itself) for external lookups of passwords, salts and other keys we are glad to announce the GNOME Infrastructure Apprentice Group.

Why Women Are Flourishing In R Community But Lagging In Python - home
There is a general understanding in the world of data and coding that the R community is impressively welcoming and inclusive of women. Python does not necessarily have a reputation for being exclusive, but we do not often hear accolades of its inclusivity either. In this article, I compare numbers of users in the R and Python communities. I also compare statistics on the respective women’s meetup organizations for each language: R-Ladies and PyLadies.

Flywire Circuits at the Next Level | Hackaday
The technique of assembling circuits without substrate goes by many names; you may know it as flywiring, deadbugging, point to point wiring, or freeform circuits. Sometimes this technique is used for practical purposes like fixing design errors post-production or escaping tiny BGA components (ok, that one might be more cool than practical). Perhaps our favorite use is to create art, and [Mohit Bhoite] is an absolute genius of the form. He’s so prolific that it’s difficult to point to a particular one of his projects as an exemplar, though he has a dusty blog we might recommend digging through [Mohit]’s Twitter feed and marveling at the intricate works of LEDs and precision-bent brass he produces with impressive regularity.

Daniel S. Standage
The purpose of this post is not to convince you that testing is an important professional obligation. If writing software is your daily bread, then this should already be a given. If, instead, you're a scientist or researcher that finds themself spending an increasing amount of time dabbling in code, think of testing as the positive and negative controls you design to ensure your experimental results are reliable. It's just not something you can compromise on without threatening the integrity of the entire process. (Note: you're likely engaged in some amount of testing already! If you execute code and evaluate its behavior or compare a result against your expectations, that's testing. Good for you!)

Rather, the purpose of this post is to persuade you that you can and probably should be testing more frequently and more comprehensively, and that automation is your friend. I discuss some of the concepts and strategies that make testing effective and that make it possible to test frequently without becoming overwhelmed. Perhaps, you too may come to more fully appreciate the joy and art of automated testing! :-)

ryanries/SharpTLSScan: Scans servers for supported SSL and TLS versions and cipher suites. Also checks the server's certificate. Supports SSLv2 - TLSv1.2.
This application scans a server to see what versions of SSL and TLS it supports, and which cipher suites.

It is very similar to a program named sslscan (http://sourceforge.net/projects/sslscan/) and sslscan-win (http://code.google.com/p/sslscan-win/) but those programs had not been updated in 5 years, and thus did not support TLS 1.1 or 1.2, which is why I wrote this tool.

Performance Co-Pilot (PCP) is a framework and services to support system-level performance monitoring and performance management.
The architecture and services are most attractive for those seeking centralized monitoring of distributed processing (e.g. in a cluster or webserver farm environment), or on large systems with lots of moving parts. However some of the features of PCP are also useful for hard performance problems on smaller system configurations.

Zabbix :: The Enterprise-Class Open Source Network Monitoring Solution
Zabbix is an enterprise-class open source distributed monitoring solution.

Zabbix is software that monitors numerous parameters of a network and the health and integrity of servers. Zabbix uses a flexible notification mechanism that allows users to configure e-mail based alerts for virtually any event. This allows a fast reaction to server problems. Zabbix offers excellent reporting and data visualisation features based on the stored data. This makes Zabbix ideal for capacity planning.

Zabbix supports both polling and trapping. All Zabbix reports and statistics, as well as configuration parameters, are accessed through a web-based frontend. A web-based frontend ensures that the status of your network and the health of your servers can be assessed from any location. Properly configured, Zabbix can play an important role in monitoring IT infrastructure. This is equally true for small organisations with a few servers and for large companies with a multitude of servers.

Computing comfortably at 30,000 feet
Flying on commercial airlines can often be a bit stressful for both our minds and bodies. Flights can also be a nice time to get some work done, but the ergonomics tends to be pretty awful. You need to tilt your head forward, probably slouch your back, while simultaneously probably putting your wrists at funny angles. So, the proposed usage embedded in the name "laptop" seems to be inadvisable.

Real Time Lightning Map :: LightningMaps.org
"Blitzortung.org" is a lightning detection network for locating electromagnetic discharges in the atmosphere (lightning discharges) with VLF receivers based on the time of arrival (TOA) and time of group arrival (TOGA) method. We are a community of station operators who send their data to the computing servers, programmers who develop and/or implement algorithms for locating and visualizing of sferic positions, and people who assist in any way to keep the system running. There is no restriction on membership. All people who keep the network in operation are volunteers. There are no fees, terms and conditions, and no contracts. If a station stops pooling its data, the server stops providing the access to the raw data for the user of that station.

The network consists of more than 500 lightning receivers and some central processing servers. The sources of the signals we locate are in general lightning discharges. The abbreviation VLF (Very Low Frequency) refers to the frequency range of 3 to 30 kHz. The receiving stations approximately record one millisecond of each signal with a sampling rate of more than 500 kHz. With the help of GPS receivers, the arrival times of the signals are registered with microsecond precision and sent over the Internet to our central processing servers. Every data sentence contains the precise time of arrival of the received lightning discharge impulse ("sferic") and the exact geographic position of the receiver. With this information from several stations the exact positions of the discharges are computed.

The aim of the project is to establish a low budget lightning location network with a high number of stations. The price for the hardware currently is less than 300 Euro. The sferic positions are free accessible in raw format for all users that transmit their data to our servers. The station owners can use the raw data for all non-commercial purposes. The lightning activity is additionally displayed at our website on several public maps in real-time. The average delay is between 3 and 20 seconds depending on the load of our servers.

For the recording of the signals we have developed a special detector. This consists of several amplifiers and a digital part for processing and forwarding of data to our central processing server. To keep the cost of potential participants as low as possible, the participants should try to get as much as possible of the necessary electronic parts from local providers.

The ubiquitous appearance of imaginary instruments in these diverse cultural, historic, and symbolic forms suggests something of the enduring fascination they excite. Like Borges’ dragon, they are “necessary monsters”: we cannot say exactly what they mean, and yet they transfix our minds with powerful symbolic energies and hints of possibilities which we ourselves can only gropingly intuit. We hope that our little museum conveys something of the joy and wonder we experienced in collecting these remarkable artifacts.

Glowing mercury thyratrons: inside a 1940s Teletype switching power supply
The power supply is interesting, since it is an early switching power supply. (I realize it's controversial to call this a switching power supply, but I don't see a good reason to exclude it.) While switching power supplies are ubiquitous now (due to cheap high-voltage transistors), they were unusual in the 1940s. The REC-30 is very large—over 100 pounds—compared to about 10 ounces for a MacBook power supply, demonstrating the amazing improvements in power supplies since the 1940s. In this blog post, I take a look inside the power supply, discuss how it works, and contrast it with a MacBook power supply.

That’s why we’re drilling down into the subgenres: to give you a starting point for venturing beyond the broad definitions of SF/F. These reading guides are by no means exhaustive — if you have suggestions, please add them in the comments!

NeverSSL - helping you get online
neverssl.com will never use SSL (also known as TLS). No encryption, no strong authentication, no HSTS, no HTTP/2.0, just plain old unencrypted HTTP and forever stuck in the dark ages of internet security.


Normally, that's a bad idea. You should always use SSL and secure encryption when possible. In fact, it's such a bad idea that most websites are now using https by default.

And that's great, but it also means that if you're relying on poorly-behaved wifi networks, it can be hard to get online. Secure browsers and websites using https make it impossible for those wifi networks to send you to a login or payment page. Basically, those networks can't tap into your connection just like attackers can't. Modern browsers are so good that they can remember when a website supports encryption and even if you type in the website name, they'll use https.

[1805.09963] Choose Your Own Adventure: Developing A Values-Oriented Framework for Your Career
We've all heard how academia evaluates our work: papers, papers, and... more papers. While academic publishing is an essential part of disseminating research results, it is only one activity amongst many that make up a career (or for that matter, a life). The following essay is based on an invited talk for the NSF AAPF Symposium, given at the 2018 Winter AAS Meeting. Here, as in the original talk, I offer some practical advice for thinking about one's work within the larger frame of your personal values and goals. While I will draw examples from my own career, I hope to offer readers guidance in articulating what is important to them, aligning their career choices with those values, and establishing metrics that go beyond the h-index.

The Computer Magazine Archives : Free Texts : Free Download, Borrow and Streaming : Internet Archive
With the re-branding of computing power and machines as something welcome in the home and not just the workshop, a number of factors moved forth to sell these machines and their software to a growing and large group of customers. Besides the introduction of more elegant cases and an increased presence by larger and larger firms, a strong argument can be made that one of the forces was the proliferation of computer-related magazines and newsletters that gave a central, printed home for writing about computers. Rising from user support groups, computer companies themselves, and publishing houses willing to risk cash and time to fund them, these magazines set the stage for the home computer revolution.
This collection consists of dozens of magazine runs, digitized from fading piles of older magazines by an army of anonymous contributors. In some cases, quality is variant, due to the rareness of the issues. Special thanks and recognition are given to sites bombjack.org, atarimagazines.com.

Python Plotting With Matplotlib (Guide) – Real Python
picture is worth a thousand words, and with Python’s matplotlib library, it fortunately takes far less than a thousand words of code to create a production-quality graphic.

However, matplotlib is also a massive library, and getting a plot to look just right is often achieved through trial and error. Using one-liners to generate basic plots in matplotlib is fairly simple, but skillfully commanding the remaining 98% of the library can be daunting.

This article is a beginner-to-intermediate-level walkthrough on matplotlib that mixes theory with examples. While learning by example can be tremendously insightful, it helps to have even just a surface-level understanding of the library’s inner workings and layout as well.

Here’s what we’ll cover:

Currently there are over 110,000 bottles from more than 190 different countries & self governing teritories, shown in over 8500 directories with almost 13,000 cross references. In addition there are more than 49,000 references in the Theme Index and all words are indexed weekly. We reached the magic 100,000 in 2017 but as you can see, we are not stopping there. There are at least another 100,000 minis out there - we need you to
