Time for another installment of Monday Reading Material!
I’m in New Zealand (and across the dateline!) so this is appearing a day early for many of you :)
Reading material from last week:
The power of ‘random’. Work done with routers to combine messages (improve efficiency of transport) and then forward them at random on to another hop. Turned out this was better overall than trying to selectively forward to “most likely” next hops.
A Perl Programming maintenance checklist. Things you can do to make your code maintainable (in any language!)
Mozilla Weave. Bookmark sync!
How much energy How do I find out how much electricity something uses?. Great article on figuring this out. I have a kill a watt and need to investigate a few appliances I have at home.
