Re: A Fast General Purpose Lock-Free Queue for C++ - http://moodycamel.com/blog...
"I agree completely. Therefore in either of those cases the system actually provides no ordering. Just pointing out that you could provide ordering for producers if you have fewer consumers than producers and consumers don't share producers without coordination. Kafka actually provides this with partitions and consumer groups. http://kafka.apache.org/docume..." - Sam Pullara

Re: A Fast General Purpose Lock-Free Queue for C++ - http://moodycamel.com/blog...
"You don't really have any strong ordering guarantees as far as I can tell. Since any consumer can dequeue from any queue, even if they are put in the queue in order by a producer, it can easily mean that messages are ultimately dispatched by a consumer in a different order. You would have to have coordination amongst the consumers or bind a single consumer to a set of producer queues to maintain the insertion order." - Sam Pullara

Five Star Garage Door Service (5/5) - http://www.yelp.com/biz...

"Incredible service from Khoi. Called Sunday morning, they got out here at noon, replaced a garage door spring in about 20 minutes. Like Uber for Garage Doors." - Sam Pullara

If you uncheck "Accept third-party cookies", Firefox will no longer send any cookies to iframes (even if set outside of an iframe), which breaks the FriendFeed Facebook app. Has Firefox always been like this?

These "privacy" features end up hurting privacy, because then web sites switch to signed urls and such, which are much worse (they leak out in referrer headers). - Paul Buchheit
Yup, this was exactly my problem. I accidentally unchecked it while messing around with cookies while programming...occupational hazard... - Emmett Shear
This breaks Feedly as well. I've always unchecked third-party cookies because I was under the impression that's where most click-trackers and ad-servers lived. Am I wrong? - Akiva
Yes, for exactly the same reasons. You are not wrong. - Sam Pullara
Isn't this the default policy in IE7, unless you enable p3p for the sites? - Michael Herf
I'm not pretty sure I agree with @paul - there are enough examples of manipulations by 3rd party cookies, from ads tuning and down to other nasty tricks. You may dislike it but it is there to protect us. And it is there for years. - непростые коротышки
It's irritating enough that I have to allow cookies on sites I want to share through the bookmarklet. Luckily, I use CS Lite. - Akiva
Please see this bugzilla entry for a quick overview: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bu... - Reading the entire bug is a good idea. This is also a relevant bug if you're interested: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bu... - Christopher Blizzard
These sorts of gimmicks are to privacy what a paper mache motorcycle helmet is to safety. They interfere with legitimate functionality while giving a false sense of security. - Paul Buchheit
you should accept authentication using facebook params, and set a cookie if you can. you have the user info right there - no need for a cookie - Ivan Kirigin
For the record, I was part of the IE team when we implemented the IE third party cookie P3P support. It was a feature completely designed by a set of State Attorneys General. They specified everything down to the UI in the IE control panel. It was a disaster. - Joe Beda
Ivan, those facebook params leak through referrer headers, meaning that other people can steal your login. Joe, the P3P thing is kind of dumb, but at least I can set the right headers to make the problem go away. That's an amusing back-story though. - Paul Buchheit
from bug report above "b) the ability to make decisions based on p3p policies was removed for firefox 3, because p3p isn't an effective way to establish trust with a site. it's a one-way system; anyone can say they're the good guy" - непростые коротышки

Re: Answering More Gradle v. Maven FUD - http://www.gradleware.com/news...
"I find this build to be entirely too scripted and filled with bespoke configuration and behaviors designed for your custom environment: https://github.com/gradle/grad... You clearly have different taste than me — I would have worked to make this the exemplar build for gradle. I am coming at the problem as someone that consumes open source software and creates builds at startups (dozens to hundreds of modules, but probably only a language or two). Maybe Gradle is the best solution for super complicated builds inside the enterprise. However, I'm not convinced that projects shouldn't also publish a maven pom.xml if they are expecting others to consume their builds. Further, it would be great if gradle would automatically generate one." - Sam Pullara

Re: Why your new JVM build tool is making things worse, aka use Maven to execute your build - http://www.javarants.com/2013...
"It is certainly the most arcane frontend of any technology I have to work with on a daily basis. I wish people would focus on making that experience better rather than reinventing the whole thing. On the IDE side, I find it unlikely that the tooling will ever be up to par because of all the scripting that is basically a black box and not really usable by the IDE." - Sam Pullara

Re: Why your new JVM build tool is making things worse, aka use Maven to execute your build - http://www.javarants.com/2013...
"Perhaps they should pull it out of apache. My understanding is that mostly apache org politics slows down their development and reaction to the community. As for scripting... plugins are the right answer for this since they are much easier to maintain than arbitrary code in the build file and over time they can be shared and reused. Scripting code in the build is a black box that makes any further optimization or integration impossible." - Sam Pullara

Re: Why your new JVM build tool is making things worse, aka use Maven to execute your build - http://www.javarants.com/2013...
"I agree with all your points about what maven lacks. I just don't see those problems being solved by the other tools. Most of their work is just getting on par with maven's base functionality. The community would be well served spending its time adding incremental builds and other actually interesting features to the build tools. Your comment did make me seek out a solution though and I am now testing the incremental-build-plugin. Here is a blog entry about it: http://harshana05.blogspot.com... Version 1.6 under a different package is available and what I am testing with." - Sam Pullara

Re: Iteration Inside and Out – journal.stuffwithstuff.com - http://journal.stuffwithstuff.com/2013...
"You can totally do internal iteration in Java <= 8 with anonymous inner classes. It just isn't as terse as it will be in Java 8. Google Guava's collection API is the most widely used system for doing this and the IDE support for it is quite good and cleans up much of the verbosity." - Sam Pullara

"What is the suggested fix? Does this mean that *.tumblr.com basically can't use it? Maybe tiered with a larger limit for the top level domain that includes the sum of the subdomains?" - Sam Pullara

Re: Build your own mail analyzer for Mac Mail.app - http://www.javarants.com/2008...
"I have over a dozen accounts of all different types and I don't have anything in that table either. With no documents table, it is hard to imagine what the intent of document_id might be. Probably a left over table from when they had some sort of Pagess/Keynote/Numbers document integration? My guess is that the table is vestigal and they just haven't gotten rid of it." - Sam Pullara
