N3 I/O Tips & Tricks
"Phew, I think that’s all the stuff that’s good-to-know when doing file IO in Nebula3. Please note that this was all about synchronous I/O. For asynchronous IO the IO::IoInterface interface-singleton is used, this simply launches a thread with its own thread-local IoServer, and IO operations are sent to the IO thread using Message objects (which in turn need to be checked for completion of the IO operation). It’s not much more complicated then synchronous IO. However I’m planning to do a few changes under the hood for asynchronous IO to enable better platform-specific optimizations in the future."

C Is Not a Low-level Language - ACM Queue
"In the wake of the recent Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities, it's worth spending some time looking at root causes. Both of these vulnerabilities involved processors speculatively executing instructions past some kind of access check and allowing the attacker to observe the results via a side channel. The features that led to these vulnerabilities, along with several others, were added to let C programmers continue to believe they were programming in a low-level language, when this hasn't been the case for decades."
