This came up in my feed today: QUIC Loss Detection and Congestion Control. I wish I had time to read it closely! It’s about how they re-implement the TCP bits and pieces (such as congestion control) atop UDP.
I think at this point I am ready to use iptables in anger for the first time in a long time, and the first time ever on a router.
However, before I take that on, I’m going to have a quick diversion into the following books, and then sleep, and I will do my iptables programming when I wake up tomorrow.
Things to read to learn about FPGA programming:
- Designing Video Game Hardware in Verilog (recommended by @indigo)
Today on IRC the BeagleV-Fire was brought to my attention. This computer system sports an FPGA and looks like just the thing to get as an entry-level system to learn about FPGA tech. These things seem to be hard to find at the moment but apparently they sell for around US$150 which is quite affordable for an entry-level system. And the manufacturer’s commitment to open hardware is encouraging. Click-through on the link to find a heap of developer resources.
Read a bunch of stuff about hardware debugging. Learned a thing or two, but I have much further to go!
The square brackets are for a closed interval wherein endpoints are included.
The round brackets are for an open interval wherein endpoints are excluded.
Today I read about the Morris worm, malware from 1988.

If you’re interested in data formats and markup languages here’s some other reading on the subject:
