Virtualbox 3.0 Announces OpenGL/Direct3D Support

"Odd protocols, like GRE?"
Hmmm .. not a network guy, are you? Should I use a standardized, widely implemented protocol like GRE, or a single-implementation solution like OpenVPN. Don't get me wrong, I love OpenVPN and thing those guys have a fantastic cross-platform solution ... but GRE isn't exactly an "odd protocol".

Google Open Sources Its Data Interchange Format

forsetti Re:Have they ever heard of BER/DER? (332 comments)

Heh -- I'm not talking about the *implementers* ... just the *protocol designers*. That's why I left out *OpenLDAP* and *OpenSSL*. ;-)

Seriously though - ASN.1 is pretty good for specification, and some of the serializations aren't bad. Fairly compact, flexible ... But don't code it by hand - se a ASN.1 compiler.
