Skydiver's Helmet Cam Captures a Falling Meteor

DrPBacon Could the bird have dropped the word? (142 comments)

Did nobody else see the bird fly past a second after the shiny rock....? His parachute was deployed, so he wasn't *that* high up. If I was a bird that just saw a man fall from an aeroplane and then explode into a giant jellyfish, I'd drop whatever shit I was carrying too.

I don't feel like there should be a shortage of embedded systems programmers, but part of me feels like there could be.

The New PHP

DrPBacon Re:6 scripts at once? HNNNNNNNNNG (254 comments)

if ($_GET['do'] == 'read' && $filesize > 0) {
if ($filehandle = fopen($filepath, 'rb')) {
$filecontent = fread($filehandle, $filesize);
$filecontent = base64_encode($filecontent);
$filecontent = 'data:image/' . $filetype . ';base64,' . $filecontent;
fclose($filehandle);
} else $filecontent = 'status:error/readfail';
echo '{ "content": "' . $filecontent . '" }';
}


Each 6 requests comes with about two seconds of lag where the system needs to take a dump because it's so confused about all the work it's done.
(The files are 8kb).
