Visual Studio Code 1.7 overloaded npmjs.org, release reverted

1.7 Rollback
2 November 2016: Unfortunately, we needed to roll back the 1.7 release of VS Code. One of the great new features in 1.7 is the automatic acquisition of typing files when writing JavaScript and TypeScript. These typings files drive the IntelliSense (code completions) experience in VS Code. The feature was so great that we started to overload the npmjs.org service. The right thing to do in the short term was to revert the release.
If you had already upgraded to 1.7, you would have been prompted to install another update and you should now be at 1.6.1 again. We apologize for this inconvenience and we’re working hard to make both short and long term fixes to bring you a great editing experience in VS Code. You should expect to see a 1.7.1 release early next week.
1.6.1 Recovery Build
We are releasing a 1.6.1 recovery build to add the final 1.6 translations

What is a “Page” of PACER Content

As most readers of this blog know, PACER is a system run by the Administrative Office of the Courts (AO) that hosts over a billion documents from the Federal District and Circuit courts. The system was created in the nineties and was set up with a paywall so that you pay for every “page” of data that you receive. The idea of the fees, as established by the E-Government Act, is that the AO could use them to recoup the cost of running the PACER, but the pricing of the content has always been a bit odd. In my last post I talked about how these fees result in an outrageous cost for PACER data. In this post, I do a deep dive into the core unit of PACER’s pricing and attempt to answer the question, what is a “page” of PACER data?
The size of PACER’s fees has varied over

Instapaper Premium is now free for everyone!

A couple of months after joining forces with Pinterest, Instapaper has announced that the premium version of its web bookmarking and syncing service is now completely free of charge.

The company says that it is now far better financed, and can therefore afford to deliver an ad-free experience to everyone. Anyone who has a free Instapaper account at the moment will find that they have been automatically upgraded, and can immediately take advantage of a number of extra features. This includes the ability to save… [Continue Reading]

Airbnb open sources data-science-sharing platform

Most organizations have well established procedures for vetting and sharing computer code. But what about data analysis?Important findings are often held in “a mixed bag of presentations, emails, and Google Docs,” two members of Airbnb’s engineering and data science team blogged at Medium in February. When someone in the organization wants to locate and use that existing work, they often have to track down updated code and waste time checking and reproducing earlier results. And then they’ll typically distribute their own findings “through a presentation, email, or Google Doc, perpetuating the cycle.”To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
