Next Generation MITnet

To the members of the MIT community:
We are writing to inform you of plans to upgrade the MIT campus network, and in particular to upgrade MIT to the next generation of Internet addressing. (Please note that no action is required on your part.)
Machines on the Internet are identified by addresses. The current addressing scheme, called IPv4, was specified around 1980, and allowed for about 4 billion addresses. That seemed enough at the time, which was before local area networks, personal computers and the like, but the Internet research community recognized around 1990 that this supply of addresses was inadequate, and put in place a plan to replace the IPv4 addresses with a new address format, called IPv6. IPv6 uses a 128-bit address scheme and is capable of 340 undecillion addresses (340 times 10^36, or 340 trillion trillion trillion possible IP addresses). This stock of addresses allows great flexibility in how

Microsoft to shut down Wunderlist in favor of its new app, To-Do

Microsoft acquired the popular mobile to do list application Wunderlist back in 2015, and now it’s preparing users for its eventual demise with the release of its new application “To-Do,” announced today. The new app was built by the team behind Wunderlist, and will bring in the favorite elements of that app in the months ahead, Microsoft says. The company also added that it won’t shut down Wunderlist until it’s confident that it has “incorporated the best of Wunderlist into To-Do.”
In case you’re hoping Wunderlist will get some sort of reprieve, Microsoft makes its forthcoming demise pretty clear. Stating its plans in black-and-white: “we will retire Wunderlist,” it says in a blog post.  
In the meantime, Microsoft is encouraging Wunderlist users to make the switch by offering an importer that will bring in your lists and to-dos from Wunderlist into To-Do, where those items will now be available in other Microsoft

Show HN: SpartanS – a pub-compatible minimal RPG rule system

An RPG rule system for instant, free-style role playing. It features
simple, lightweight, consistent rules that fit on one page of A4 paper. You
can download the SpartanS rules from
this site.

Introduction

SpartanS—the Spartanic RPG System—is a very simple
rule system. Its goal is to stay out of the way when a group of people
spontaneously decides to start a game session. For this reason, SpartanS
relies only on the six-sided die, because this type of die can be assumed to
be available everywhere—even in a pub!

SpartanS uses consistent rules and tries to avoid the usage of different
number values for different things: It should be easy to ‘guess the rules
correctly.’ SpartanS is very much suited for free-style role playing.

This page outlines the rules of SpartanS and also explains the rationale
behind it. It is longer than the pure rules sheet and intended for the
interested reader and potential game master. If you want the condensed form,
you can download SpartanS rules

Pluralsight Course: Azure Beyond Websites

I’ve been really actively involved with building things on Microsoft’s Azure cloud for probably about 4 or 5 years now. Many of you will know already that Have I been pwned (HIBP) was built from the ground up on Azure (in fact, one of the reasons I built the service was to play with Azure “in anger”!), what less people know is the work I’d been doing before that. In my previous life looking after Pfizer’s software architecture in this corner of the world, I was pushing hard to move apps we were building into Azure, in particular the PaaS constructs they have available. Time and time again, the discussion would go like this:
Vendor: (Pfizer outsourced all their dev work to vendors) We’re building this web app for you so we need a virtual machine and a SQL database.
Me: Is there a reason we can’t run it in the Azure
