WebServices bioSqueak - sourceforge CV About Downloads Links

I've moved to sdf, a very cool public access unix system. The new url is http://edoneel.chaosnet.org

From now on this blog will focus on web services. I'll try to document my experience with getting web services to run in Squeak with a view to making it understandable to anyone, regardless of the computer language used

Reference information will appear on the WebServices link in the upper left corner but the essays will first appear below.

TRAMP stands for `Transparent Remote (file) Access, Multiple Protocol'. This package provides remote file editing, similar to Ange-FTP. The difference is that Ange-FTP uses FTP to transfer files between the local and the remote host, whereas TRAMP uses a combination of rsh and rcp or other work-alike programs, such as ssh/scp.

I, Cringely on the Taguchi method

The National Taiwan University Department of Computer Science and Information Engineering has some 3d search engines.

One cool one is a Protein simularity search

They also have a 3d model retrieval system

The data files for the Protein Simularity search come from Protein Data Bank

The file format is described here

TCPreen is a simple tool to monitor and analyze data transmitted between a client and a server via a TCP connection; it supports both IPv4 and IPv6. This tool focuses on the data stream (software/socket layer), not on the lower level transmission protocol as packet sniffers do.

2002: A Zope Odyssey. This talk is really two presentations: a tour through the requirements and solutions we offer for eLearning, and a discussion of the implementation environment and architectural choices. Allison and Goldberg chose to use Python, Zope, and MySQL on the server-side, targeting IE, Mozilla, and Opera with Flash MX on the client-side. They used a combination of curriculum expressed in XML, a Smalltalk website generator, and a Zope-based authoring system to manage technical production. AgileMind operates as a virtual company, with team members located throughout the U.S.

Raggle, is a console RSS aggregator, written in Ruby.

Filters that fight back. Does it think it has spam? Fetch all of the URLs inside. The bad bit is that that confirms the email address. Maybe one should just get the top level URL not the URL which seems to contain something that would let the spamlord decide if an address is valid

Networking From the Rooftop - MIT researchers are developing new routing strategies for a wireless network that hops data in the roofs of the city. This is cool.

The main website for MIT roofnet. - MIT Roofnet is an experimental rooftop wireless network testbed for the Grid Ad-Hoc Networking Project in development at MIT LCS's Parallel and Distributed Operating Systems group. The goal of our project is to build a production-quality self-organizing network capable of providing Internet service while researching scalable routing protocols.
