Online Aspect : The war on freedom (and why I like Ron Paul) -
"For what it's worth, I agree with him about de-criminalizing prostitution and heroine. I wish we had more intellectual consistency in our laws. If tobacco and alcohol are legal, why isn't marijuana? Is the role of the government to stop us from doing stupid things to ourselves? It's one thing when our actions affect other people (driving high for example) but I'm not sure it's the government's job to stop me from risking my own life base-jumping if I want to. I'd like for us to be able to do more protecting of innocent people abroad, but most of our aid currently goes to propping up dictators and when we're trillions in debt, I think we need to fix our issues here first. You're totally right about the meetup data not being representative of course. I just found it interesting. :)" - Josh Fraser

Torbit blog : Help us stop SOPA - protest on your site! -
"You can either strip out the if-statement and control the timing yourself, or change the timestamps according to the timezone you want to use. Here's a handy tool for calculating them: You'll need to add 3 zeros to the end of a standard Unix timestamp since JavaScript counts milliseconds instead of seconds." - Josh Fraser

Re: Scripting News: Why black out on Wednesday? -
"By doing it on Wednesday, we can amplify the message and collectively get more attention than just protesting on our own.  If you decide to join in, be sure to check out the stop-sopa.js widget.  It's easy to install and you can grab the code off github if you want to customize anything:" - Josh Fraser

"I agree that would be a good feature to add.  Glad you got it working." - Josh Fraser
Online Aspect : How to use curl_multi() without blocking -
"Sure, an easy way to do this is to add a GET variable to the end of the URL you are fetching (ie. ?mysql_id=42) and then parse out that ID when the request completes from the CURL info array." - Josh Fraser
Online Aspect : Backwards compatible window.postMessage() -

Re: Google Is Trying to Beat JPEG & PNG Images with WebP -
"The reason this hasn't gone mainstream yet is that only Chrome & Opera support it.  This causes a problem for webmasters who would like to add support, but can't justify caching copies of all their images to conditionally serve to 2 browsers.  We tackled this problem at Torbit and automated the process so any website can use WebP without any work at all.  We were impressed with the results as the performance gains are quite meaningful for image-heavy sites.  We shared our data in a blog post for anyone who is interested:" - Josh Fraser
