It looks more likely that someone's learning Go and going through the crawler example in the tutorials. Of course I may be wrong here. The trigger for me was the term "Fetcher" here.. http://tour.golang.org/#73

Fun exercise though.

As a former employee, that was my first thought when I read the post too. Every once in a while, I would stay late there and work on a little personal project for fun there. Sometimes one of my friends would be working late, and I'd just keep him/her company. After all, if I'm just going to do the same thing at home, I might as well take advantage of coding on my big monitor and comfy chair...

IMHO, a big couch is better than a comfy chair.

It would be awesome if a "weasel words" highlighter or filter were to be added too. I have found that just removing some of these words from writing tends to have significant improvement in the clarity of writing. http://matt.might.net/articles/shell-scripts-for-passive-voi...

Any plans for supporting LXC or similar container solutions. They're much cheaper on the server side if you want to host a solution like this.

Yep. Linux for Workgroups is the official name too. ;) http://www.h-online.com/open/news/item/Linux-for-Workgroups-...

I check if there's indeed a mail server in DNS to avoid the hassle of waiting for potentially slow SMTP servers to respond - for most cases, it works and I end up catching bogus email addresses from the domain names themselves.

A MX record is not necessary for a host to be able to receive email.

-----


Note that that library can also check for an MX server. It goes Valid string -> MX exists -> User exists (you can choose to only check for MX, or only for valid string).

-----


Really? How is mail routed then?

-----


It should fall back to a A record. That's not exactly best practice, but if you're compliant that is something that you should be able to handle.

Nah, just means they can count to 3. Still holding out for HL3.

You can also do cd $(mktemp -d) and get a new one if you need another one.

So, I'm originally from the same neighborhood (if I may call it that - shit, the place was just rice fields when we moved in) in Kathmandu and occasionally a Node.js hacker. It's really nice to see development in this field. Great to see this on Show HN. I'm gonna buy you guys a beer next time I'm home.

-----


Sounds great. Let's try to play a match in Online Baghchal. We can have chat about where to meet for beer ;) Thanks.

You mean $2.4 Trillion?

-----


Fixed, thx.

The new site just looks annoying and confusing.

-----


I wouldn't buy anything from them but I think it's keeping in the spirit of the community.
