Meine pinboard.in-Links vom 21. Februar bis zum 6. März:

  • git-annex - allows managing files with git, without checking the file contents into git. While that may seem paradoxical, it is useful when dealing with files larger than git can currently easily handle, whether due to limitations in memory, checksumming time, or disk space.
  • Handling my music collection with git-annex - Very cool, would probably not work with iTunes…
  • Pipe Viewer - is a terminal-based tool for monitoring the progress of data through a pipeline. It can be inserted into any normal pipeline between two processes to give a visual indication of how quickly data is passing through, how long it has taken, how near to completion it is, and an estimate of how long it will be until completion.
  • tumblr2wp - Tumblr2WP makes it super simple to transfer your Tumblr content to your own, self-hosted WordPress install.
  • Naked Password - The whole idea of naked password is to encourage your users to enter stronger passwords. Our beautiful model Sally tastefully removes items of clothing as the password grows stronger.
  • beets - is the media library management system for obsessive-compulsive music geeks
  • Searching Active Directory with ldapsearch - If you think there isn't a trick to this, that means you've never tried it - leastways not on an Active Directory container that has more than 1,000 objects in it (or whatever the search limit has been set to in your environment)
  • TCP Performance problems caused be interaction between Nagle's Algorithm and Delayed ACK - The overall summary is that many of the mechanisms that make TCP so great, like fast retransmit, work best when there's a continuous flow of data for the TCP state machine to work on. If you send a block of data and then stop and wait for an application-layer acknowledgment from the other end, the state machine can falter.
  • shop - A tool to show permissions at every level in a path. Shop gives you a quick overview of the permissions of the directory in question, as well as the permissions of every directory above it in the tree.
  • monotone - is a free distributed version control system. It provides a simple, single-file transactional version store, with fully disconnected operation and an efficient peer-to-peer synchronization protocol.
