"spurious exactitude" is the phrase you might be looking for :)

-----


wanting to do everything is not a virtue. want less do more.

-----


oh god! it was fine as an experiment but...

-----


my thoughts

- i would reduce hours down to 8 and take the weekends off

- you aren't anywhere close to burnout, for me burnout is when you can't work anymore not when you can work 10*7!!

- don't fret it, the project will be done when its done

-----


no, don't do this. you have limited time focus what you learn just like everything else

Most seem to be available here - https://github.com/papers-we-love/papers-we-love

For off the record try - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=co.hushes

we build and use http://flock.co (chat for teams) and it has almost killed email for us. most communication and requests have started getting routed on chat.

it is not clear if a 1-on-1 interaction increases efficiency substantially on chat as opposed to email but in groups (emails with multiple stakeholders) it is significantly more effective

I have actually implemented a TCP stack in python, unfortunately I can't share it publicly just yet.

The authors problems are because she is not using RAW_IP_SOCKETS.

Making TCP packets using pythons struct module is a breeze. I can post specific examples in code if anyone is interested.

Finally you can write a proper TCP stack in python, there is no reason not to. Your user-space interpreted stack won't be as fast as a compiled kernel-space one - but it won't be feature short.

PS: I guess, Google is probably sending him a SSL/TLS handshake which he isn't handling.

Edit: Corrected author's gender as mentioned by kind poster.

I believe the author is a "she". It says at the banner of the blog.

I think this downvoting thing is out of control. What was even remotely offensive about this correction?

-----


"offensive" isn't the only reason for downvoting. "Not a substantive addition to the conversation" is one (of many) other bases. If you are going to complain about downvoting [1] why do so based on the unwarranted assumption that the downmod must be for offensiveness?

[1] And you shouldn't, see the Guidelines [2] under "In Comments"

In my opinion, if HN doesn't want puzzled people to ask why they've been downmodded, then instead of putting a line in the Guidelines saying "don't do this", they should separate the downmod into "I disagree" and "flag this as a bad comment", with the latter item the one that reduces the text weight. It's clearly broken - people have been doing this for as long as I've been here, and it's not going to change (sadly, 'it' means both the behaviour, and HN's braindead downmod mechanism).

-----


If you have code examples already, I'd be grateful--I ran into server that had Python but not nmap or nc and while I was already familiar enough with socket to do what I needed, I wasn't so familiar with struct and wasn't able to make much headway manually building TCP/UDP packets before having to move onto other work.

-----


drop me an email, the address is in my profile. I will send you some examples.

-----


Google sends extra packets because it does not comply with TCP Slow Start(RFC 2581) - if the author implements a proper tcp state machine and buffer then she would be able to handle this.

-----


Dart is what is coming to Android with ART eventually - not Go.

-----


Dart has nothing to do with ART, AFAIK. ART is an installation-time compiler for Dalvik binaries (essentially an AOT compiler for Java).

-----


did you see something about this somewhere? care to share or elaborate? (im really curious)

if thats is true, it means AOT compilation for Dart?
