Amazon's Plan To Storm the Cable Industry's Castle

fredan Re:Does TOECDN do port 443? (85 comments)

No.

You do realize that you should only use TOECDN for static content, right?

Amazon's Plan To Storm the Cable Industry's Castle

fredan Re:All hostages to the last mile providers (85 comments)

It's only the ISP who can do this and build such system for caching content.

The concept of TOECDN, The Open Edge Content Delivery Network, previously known as The Last Mile Cache, is to cache content so close to the consumer as possible. TOECDN is the only solution to allow customers to have their own http-cache servers.

Instead of having X different cache solutions for the ISP to host and maintain, TOECDN combines this to ONE unified system/solution for all static content served over HTTP.

And anyone is free to use this solution. That's the hole point.

fredan Re:How many years could he be charged with? (299 comments)

No, you are wrong.

We (Sweden) have a separate agreement with the U.S. regarding this. That's why he's scared of being transported to the U.S. from Sweden.

Netflix Trash-Talks Verizon's Network; Verizon Threatens To Sue

fredan Re:TOECDN solves mostly all of your problems (364 comments)

Yes it does. Which other cache solutions does allows you as a customer to setup your own cache at home and at the same time is open for anyone to use?

Think of all the websites on the Internet which is run as non-profit. My first thought and example would be wikipedia. They do have alot (alot!) of static content which is the main part of their traffic.

Now add a ISP which is in the third world. Up link via a satellite. How many of the current cache providers would actually place their cache-servers at this ISP? None. To small. On the other hand this is an very good example which will benefit with a cache-server since they do have very limited of bandwidth.

My point is that it will require someone quite big (like wikipedia) to start using TOECDN in the first place. Then the rest will follow.

Have in mind that the concept of TOECDN in released in public domain. Just for the purpose to keep it neutral and for everyone to use.

Netflix Trash-Talks Verizon's Network; Verizon Threatens To Sue

fredan Re:TOECDN solves mostly all of your problems (364 comments)

Actually with TOECDN it goes from 14 to 1 solution.

I, as independent content provider can not and are not allowed to use Netflix caching solution. That is not what I call Net Neutrality.

Netflix Trash-Talks Verizon's Network; Verizon Threatens To Sue

fredan Re:TOECDN solves mostly all of your problems (364 comments)

My point with these two examples is that this content is also much cache-able (its static so it doesn't change), so you don't need mirrors anymore!

Netflix Trash-Talks Verizon's Network; Verizon Threatens To Sue

fredan Re:TOECDN solves mostly all of your problems (364 comments)

What I mean is that nobody is interested in TOECDN as a solution to cache static content, independent of whoever is the origin of the content.

With TOECDN you as an ISP only need one setup of cache-servers not one from each content provider (as in my examples). Easier to maintain and to deploy. And its free for everybody to use. Net Neutrality.

fredan Re:TOECDN solves mostly all of your problems (364 comments)

Netflix has its own caching.
Amazon has their own caching.
Akamai has their own caching.
Limewire has their own caching.

Apache has their own caching http://www.apache.org/dyn/closer.cgi/ (talking about download their software, not their cache server).
Sourceforge has their own caching http://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/sourceforge/wiki/Mirrors/.

(I think you can add alot more of my examples).

Why have gazillions of differents caching solutions when you only need one, which honor Net Neutrality by design?

Since we are talking about static content, you can have it cached right next to the consumer, if you want.

BUT.

No one is interested in a solution which not only solve this, but also let anyone to use and cache their content, independent of the provider.

What everybody in the Internet industry is doing instead is trash-talking each other.

FCC Votes To Consider Next Round of 'Net Neutrality' Rules

fredan TOECDN solves mostly all of your problems (182 comments)

Your ISP sells you a product which they know is oversold in capacity. Instead of fixing their capacity problem they now try to get you a their consumer to not use their product (the cap limit).

The concept of TOECDN solves the distribution of static content on the Internet. NetFlix, Youtube, Steam and whatever you are using to go over your cap can and should be fixed by TOECDN.

TOECDN place the cache server as close as possible to you as a consumer - even with the possibility to have your own cache server at home!

If you place cache-servers within the ISP networks, they, as a benefit, don't have to upgrade their networks connection to be able to push out more data to their consumers.

Before anyone reply and say: it won't work, it will never work, I will make sure its not going to work, I have invested heavenly in CDN companies stocks so your solution can not see the light, etc...

I would like to ask you: How does _your_ solution looks like to be able to let anyone on the Internet to cache their content on cache-servers within a ISP?

Congressional Report Warns of Potential Bitcoin Threat to US Dollar

fredan fredan writes  |  about 8 months ago

fredan (54788) writes "If I understand the comments from the previously Bitcoin story that you really love these, here's another one for you:

'A Congressional report quietly released last month suggests that bitcoin could be a threat to US monetary policy, and makes the case for continued central banking control.

The report, Bitcoin: Questions, Answers, and Analysis of Legal Issues, was published by the Congressional Research Service, which produces research reports for US policy makers. It argues for the benefits of a single, incumbent currency (the US dollar), for stability.'

Now in a true slashdot spirit there will not be an link directly to the report, instead I will provide a link to a link to the link of the report:

Tesla Motors: Early Re-Payment of Tesla's ATVM Loan

fredan (54788) writes "On February 26, at an event hosted by Secretary of Energy Steven Chu, Elon Musk announced Tesla will pay off our Department of Energy (DOE) loan five years early, twice as fast as required by the original 2010 loan agreement signed by Tesla and the DOE.

It is worth noting that in comparison with these three other recipients, Tesla had the smallest loan. Ford's loan was for $5.9 billion, Nissan's was for $1.4 billion, and Fisker's was for $529 million."

A filesystem or a Trival Database?

fredan (54788) writes "Is an Trival Database on a block device, which is mmap, any faster than filesystem (pick your favorit) on the same blockdevice? You will store ordinary files on the TDB as you would in a filesystem.

Some new ideas for using a wind tubine

fredan fredan writes  |  more than 2 years ago

Wind turbines at sea.

What a wind turbine can't do is to produce electricity when the wind is not
blowing. If we want that, we need to store the energy (somewhere) for later use.
Batteries might be the first you think of but consider that we need to store
energy for a number of wind turbine in the MWh class. The batteries themselves
will not last as long with this type of charge and discharge that occurs here.
We should be able to store the energy that can withstand this and having as
little maintenance as possible.

If a wind turbine instead of producing electricity, produces compressed air
we're having a much easier way of storing the energy in a large compressed air
tank, directly at sea, near the wind turbines.

We have an pipeline for the compressed air into our land where we can use it
for producing electricity, for example. We should also have an large storage
tank (like in caverns) for the compressed air for later use as well.

What we have lost in effectiveness / efficiency is that we can now produce
electricity even if the wind is not blowing! This will also help the network
grid since we always produce the average of what the wind should blow in the
area where the wind turbine is.
