I really dislike April Fool’s day. Especially people whose April Fools joke includes the phrase “this is not a joke” which they later retract. That type of person doesn’t understand how humor works.

My April 1st post from last year.

I was at ShmooCon last weekend. I thought their choice of free bags was interesting. I was a little disappointed that I didn’t see anyone carrying it like a clutch.

There were a handful of interesting talks. A common theme was using statistical analysis to find out what’s actually interest in a large block of data. I think we’ll see even more of this in the future. The web is growing every day and we’re going to need tools to plow through all of that data. Sergey Bratus gave a well received talk on the Kerf project. One use is telling you what the statistically interesting packets are in a long packet trace instead of you guessing what’s there with filters. (I’ve known Sergey for a couple years, but never knew what he was working on)

Cheese grater removal

cheese grater
My bike was out of commission for a bit as I removed what is affectionately called the “cheese grater” by the Buell community. The Buell Lightning has a sort of vestigial tail that extends past the tail light and holds the turn signals and license plate. It looks like this. I had somebody experienced shorten it to clean up the tail section. I also installed the ’07 airbox which is freer flowing and the only major mechanical change from my ’06 model. Here’s a photoset with the before and after. I’m still waiting for a new slip-on exhaust. I’m also watching the classifieds for an Firebolt XB9R to use just as a track bike.

I’m currently in LA for the week to collaborate with Ryan. I’ve got a new EVDO Rev A express card fastest I’ve seen so far was in Las Vegas 200KB/s down 16KB/s up. Is there a reason we still use kbps for rate?

USB FPGA board I’m looking for a cheap alternative to Pico‘s boards. I’d love to see FPGAs start showing up in computers to act as a custom processor. Anything intensive like transcoding DVDs for iPod use could be offloaded and processed much faster using an FPGA.

LinuxMCE returns – Download Squad

LinuxMCE returns Another day, another specified distro. These projects die all the time when the team encounters how hard it is to maintain a Linux distro regardless of what features they’ve added. If our software management was more intuitive we wouldn’t need something like this.
