H-yuge update from jsg@openbsd on getting radeondrm updated to Linux 4.4.129. https://marc.info/?l=openbsd-cvs&m=152461967621280&w=2
Lots of new APUs and GPUs now supported
Lots of good stuff coming out of #p2k18 such as improved SVM support in vmm by @mlarkin https://marc.info/?l=openbsd-cvs&m=152460201617167&w=2
Weird effects usually have a reason, and often this reason is very interesting. (And makes for good stories!)
I'm still trying to change my attitude from "Noooo, why won't it just woooork" to "Oh, maybe I found something interesting there".
Automate the setup, experiments, and analysis. Put everything into scripts and improve them over time.
Log all the information you can, especially packet captures. They will allow you to understand what happened in your experiment run.
Other thing this paper has taught me:
When you get a setup, test performance on all links, and understand why. 100MBit Ethernet card? 802.11n but only on 2.4 GHz? Frame aggregation disabled in the driver? (*side-eyes iwlwifi*)
Who ever thought that web UIs with buttons that move around while more page elements are loaded on a slow connection were a good idea?
Being rate limited by my mobile provider is kinda annoying. Reading my #Mastodon timeline on the web client still went pretty smooth though. But as soon as I try to access a linked web page… nothing works.
People, design your web stuff with low bandwidth in mind, please.
Been passing this wall painting on my way to work. Today in the sunshine it is super impressive!
Another Rothney Astrophysical Observatory Baker-Nunn shot. This time of M31- The Andromeda galaxy. M31 is the closest large galaxy to our Galaxy that basically looks like our Galaxy. A mere 2 million light years away, M31 will collide with our Galaxy in about 4-5 billion years.
