Subject: Opengov techies give back with apps and expertise

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Smaller governments, typically those in rural towns, don’t have the IT capacity to foster serious innovation in citizen participation like governments in larger cities do. Two groups decided it was time to give back and have come together to share their technical knowledge and expertise: OpenColorado and Colorado Code for Communities will combine community, platform, and digital literacy to create a hosted service platform that includes open data with different web and mobile applications.

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

As of the Linux 3.3 series kernel though a pile of the Android changes where merged back into the main line kernel. Because of this re-merging and the fact that it had been sometime since I last tried Android in any form I felt I should give it another chance.

Subject: Markdown may be defined as a standard

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Markdown icon An effort is emerging to take the Markdown plain text formatting conventions originally developed by John Gruber in 2004 and create a standardisable specification. Markdown's syntax allows a minimal set of plain text 'markup' characters to offer useful basic formatting, for example, underlining text with "=" or "-" makes the text a heading as does preceding text with one to six "#" symbols. The apparent simplicity of the format has seen it used on many blogs, Reddit, GitHub and other sites as a way for users to present formatted text through the system. With this wide take up, developer Jeff Atwood, co-founder of Stack Overflow, has called for a standardisation of Markdown.

Subject: Rate Limiting With nginx

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

This article explains how to use the nginx HttpLimitReqModule to limit the number of requests for a given session. This is useful, for example, if your site is hammered by a bot doing multiple requests per second and thus increasing your server load. With the HttpLimitReqModule you can define a rate limit, and if a visitor exceeds this rate, he will get a 503 error.
