The real Da Vinci Code: Rosslyn Chapel's stone cubes may conceal a 500-year-old secret.

 /  the rosslyn code  :  A 500-year-old message in stone. By Chris Wilson PART I:A SERIES OF CUBES PART II:THE STONE ANGELS PART III:COMING MAY 18 PART IV:COMING MAY 19 PART V:COMING MAY 20 From the outside, the Rosslyn Chapel does not look like a suitable place to hide Jesus' head. It's not much bigger than a country church, standing inconspicuously on a small hill in the miniature Scottish town of Roslin, a few miles south of Edinburgh…

Dictionary Lookups in JavaScript

I've been working on a browser-based word game, naturally written in JavaScript, and have been encountering some interesting technical challenges along the way. I've written up my thought process here for others to learn from (note that most of this happened over the course of a month, or so)…

Paper: Propagation Networks: A Flexible and Expressive Substrate for Computation

Alexey Radul in his fascinating 174 page dissertation Propagation Networks: A Flexible and Expressive Substrate for Computation, offers to help us break free of the tyranny of linear time by arranging computation as a network of autonomous but interconnected machines.  We can do this by organizing computation as a network of interconnected machines of some kind, each of which is free to run when it pleases, propagating&nbsp information around the network as proves possible…

Turn any Linux computer into SOCKS5 proxy in one command

I thought I'd do a shorter article on catonmat this time. It goes hand in hand with my upcoming article series on "100% technical guide to anonymity" and it's much easier to write larger articles in smaller pieces. Then I can edit them together and produce the final article. This article will be interesting for those who didn't know it already -- you can turn any Linux computer into a SOCKS5 (and SOCKS4) proxy in just one command: ssh -N -D 0.0.0…

I remember installing Solaris onto a 64-bit UltraSPARC many years ago. When I did it, lo and behold, 32-bit and 64-bit versions of all libraries were installed side-by-side. I could still run the many proprietary 32-bit Solaris apps needed by my coworkers, but we could compile memory-intensive scientific models as 64-bit no problem.Flash forward to today, and Windows and OS X have both figured this out…

Erlang and Nginx, a proof of concept

I was doing some writing this evening and out of the blue, I was struck with the urge to create what would be the "mod_erlang" Apache module. I've heard of several really cool stories of using c/c++ apps as entry points to Erlang grids and it sounded like a really cool idea to pursue. Then I remembered what developing Apache modules was like and was immediately discouraged…
