Round Three. Fight!
I feel like I’m finally unblocked on writing ctempd. I cant get the ec build system to give me a nice library to link against, but I can get it to build a bunch of .o files for me and link against them directly. This is the simplest approach and I think it will do just well for now. I can always make my own library layer that is linked against these and built into a static library or something; alternatively I might revisit this problem again in the future and see what the cleanest approach is. But for now I’m happy to just get to writing some original code :)Read More...
There are a few resources online for setting up an empty project in Urho3D - even a github repo by the same name Urho3D-Empty-Project, but after having tried myself to create a basic “hello world” from scratch, I found them to either be a misnomer (as in the case of the “empty project” repo) or incomplete. This assumes you are going to use the Urho3D CMake build system as much as possible.Read More...
Having figured out the surface details of how
ectool sets fan speed, it’s time
for us to try to do the same on our own and begin building our little fan control
daemon in the process.
For whatever reason, I always find that any printer at work will always be the one that doesn’t work with Linux. Maybe that’s just because all printers don’t work with Linux ;p But luckily to get the printer to work all it took was a ppd file.Read More...
As part of the move away from a proprietary in memory database
last.fm is moving to ApacheCassandra.
Cassandra is far more easier to deploy to a public cloud (in our case GCE), scale
up/down and query.
madb, being completely in memory does have pretty good
performance characteristics, but scaling requires machines with more ram,
sharding by user and in has some weird and interesting bugs.
