intermittent downtime

Filed under
Site News

The intermittent downtime today and last week was due to loss of electrical power in the neighborhood. Seems our electric company can't keep the power on anymore. Last week a storm blew in for about 5 minutes, but that heavy rain was enough to take us down several times that day. Today there were no winds or rain, I guess the sun was shining a little too brightly.

For those still interested, I do still plan to seek off-site hosting soon. I had to put moving onto the back burner while I fulfilled my other obligations and I need to secure some more permanent income, but unless things go too wonky, I will find some inexpensive hosting at the end of this month or early next month.

Thank you and my apologies.

Samsung Continues to Lessen Android Dependence

Samsung's partnership with members of the Linux Foundation appears to be bearing fruit. The partnership's mobile operating system -- dubbed Tizen -- is Linux-based. Samsung's initial Tizen phone rollout was rocky: The company's highly anticipated Samsung Z launch in Russia was quickly canceled last year, and the company blamed concerns about the ecosystem for the delay. Unfortunately, in many cases, ecosystem development presents a "chicken and egg" problem: Developers won't build apps until you have users, and users won't select your product until you have apps.

Linux 4.2 Offers Performance Improvements For Non-Transparent Bridging

The Non-Transparent Bridge code is undergoing a big rework that has "already produced some significant performance improvements", according to its code maintainer Jon Mason. For those unfamiliar with NTB, it's described by the in-kernel documentation, "NTB (Non-Transparent Bridge) is a type of PCI-Express bridge chip that connects the separate memory systems of two computers to the same PCI-Express fabric. Existing NTB hardware supports a common feature set, including scratchpad registers, doorbell registers, and memory translation windows." Or explained simply by the Intel Xeon documentation that received the NTB support, "Non-Transparent Bridge (NTB) enables high speed connectivity between one Intel Xeon Processor-based platform to another (or other IA or non-IA platform via the PCIe interface)."
