Your Game Doesn't Need UDP (Yet) | glyph | ThoughtStreams edit / delete

Why TCP is often good enough for real-time applications. This'll be on the reading list for AG0907 students this year.

AWS-CloudDesignPattern edit / delete

"The AWS Cloud Design Patterns (CDP) are a collection of solutions and design ideas for using AWS cloud technology to solve common systems design problems." A nice collection.

Michael J Mahon's Home Page: NadaNet, AppleCrate, Synth edit / delete

Using 17 Apple II motherboards and a homebrew network system to build a 16-voice synthesiser is a bit silly. Also quite cool, though.

UPC appears to be roughly to C as OpenMP is to Fortran, but with support for distributed computation. (That is, it's a way of doing C-like computation with pointers and shared data across multiple machines. Whether this is a good idea I'm not entirely convinced, but it's always nice to see better compiler support for parallel programming.)

zeromq: Fastest. Messaging. Ever. edit / delete

A messaging library that's basically equivalent to Trap with some additional bells and whistles. Worth looking at for future simulations, assuming the performance is good enough. (On a closer look: the library's idea of thread safety is incompatible with lightweight threading systems, so it would need reimplementing. Also LGPLv3. Grr.)

Icecream - openSUSE edit / delete

Like distcc, but allows the toolchain to be distributed around, so you don't need to have all your machines the same. This might be a good use for the TUNA cluster, if we can get KRoC to build using it...

Gluster - Home edit / delete

Simple distributed filesystem. Looks interesting, but (reading between the lines) not terribly mature.

M4 Message Breaking Project edit / delete

Distributed project to break as-yet undecrypted WW2 Enigma messages. Interesting application of distributed computing to the field of history rather than biology or chemistry.

PlanetLab | An open platform for developing, deploying, and accessing planetary-scale services edit / delete

Networking research system. We apparently have a couple of nodes (and access to it) at Kent; can we think of any cool occam-related uses for it?
