Noms – A new decentralized database based on ideas from Git

`noms init`Today we’re announcing Noms. But more importantly: our mascot, “Nommy”, the snacky otter.In 2013, I discovered Camlistore and began feverishly hacking on it. I really loved the vision: a personal, automatically-organized archive of all your data, forever. But as I was working on Camlistore, I kept thinking that the project really needed a different kind of database — one with versioning, deduplication, and synchronization built right into the core.I started tinkering with these ideas in my spare time and was quickly consumed by them. I had been really inspired by the elegance and power of Git for years, and also by the functional programming style of tools like ReactJS. It seemed like a database that combined the decentralization, versioning, and synchronization of Git with strong typing and the feel of functional programming would make it much easier to store, move, and track all kinds of changing data.One day after work, I

Microsoft Releases Windows 10 Anniversary Update

Windows 10 Anniversary Update is now rolling out, Microsoft announced Tuesday. The major update brings with it Windows Ink, a dedicated hub designed especially for 2-in-1 devices with styluses, and improvements to Cortana among others. ZDNet’s Mary Jo Foley writes: I’m hearing that the first users to get Anniversary Update via Windows Update will be those with the newest hardware, BIOSes and firmware. Those who may encounter compatibility issues because of drivers may get it slightly later through Windows Update, my contacts say. Microsoft actually delivered some of the Anniversary Update features for Xbox One on July 30. On August 1, Microsoft made Windows 10 Anniversary Update available to its volume licensees in the Microsoft Volume Licensing Service Center. It also made the Anniversary Update code available to its reseller partners via its Partner Portal yesterday. MSDN users can get the Anniversary Update bits today. Microsoft officials said a week

New docs page for PagePark

I use PagePark to serve many of my sites. It has evolved over the last couple of years to be a very nice little HTTP server, running in Node. The idea is that it does 90 percent of a what a full server does, but it’s designed to be easy and powerful for the site-runner. I haven’t had any complaints about the performance, but I wouldn’t use it to run a big site like Google or GitHub. It has lots of ways of doing redirects, because that’s how you fight linkrot as websites evolve. I always forget what the various values are named so I took a few hours and wrote the docs I’ve always wanted. Here they are.PagePark: Programming your website.Nothing earth-shaking. File it under “nice to have.”Still diggin! 😉

Debian and Tor Services Available as Onion Services

We, the Debian project and the Tor project are enabling
Tor onion services for several of our sites. These sites can now be
reached without leaving the Tor network, providing a new option for
securely connecting to resources provided by Debian and Tor.
The freedom to use open source software may be compromised when access to that
software is monitored, logged, limited, prevented, or prohibited. As a
community, we acknowledge that users should not feel that their every action
is trackable or observable by others. Consequently, we are pleased to announce
that we have started making several of the various web services provided by
both Debian and Tor available via onion services.
While onion services can be used to conceal the network location of the machine
providing the service, this is not the goal here. Instead, we employ onion
services because they provide end-to-end integrity and confidentiality,
and they authenticate the onion service end point.
For instance, when users connect to the onion service
