Major Bitcoin Exchange Ceases Operation

dublinclontarf Not a single post mentions Intersango (208 comments)

Which is funny, because it's the second largest exchange now after MtGox, the second longest after gox, and the only major exchange with no security compromises. Does no one know about them? Bitcoins biggest secret.

Mirah Tries To Make Java Fun With Ruby Syntax

dublinclontarf Why this and not JRuby? (444 comments)

There are two advantages to Mirah.
1) It doesn't need to load the Ruby standard library, so it's really quick to start up and uses less resources, this is important if you're using Google app engine, meaning much MUCH lower spin up time.
2) Static typing, it brings it with a ruby syntax, bringing along the associated speedup. Essentially it should execute at the same speed as Java.

What's Holding Back Encryption?

dublinclontarf Why use encryption? (660 comments)

Why use encryption? The Government, and not necessarily your own. Why would a government care about the content you view from websites? I moved to China 6 months ago and am sick of half the internet being blocked, I can't talk to my friends or family on facebook, my porn is cut off and plenty more. And China is only at the forefront, Australia is close behind followed by the UK(in the "free" world), and every other despot country with internet.

Ubuntu 8.04, the best Java development platform

dublinclontarf dublinclontarf writes  |  more than 6 years ago

dublinclontarf writes "A powerful, fully featured Java/Ruby/GlassFish/Rails development environment, no configuration issues at all. Compared to OSX/Windows and I'm sorry to say, even to Solaris this is criminally quick (depending on your Internet connection) and painless."
