Get Yer SAMP Stacks Here · One of the nice things about work­ing for a big com­pa­ny is that some­times you run across smart peo­ple do­ing smart things that you didn’t know about. For ex­am­ple, check out the CoolThreads Op­ti­mized Open Source Soft­ware Stack (thank good­ness, they al­so use “Cool Stack”). I don’t know who these guys are, I don’t know where they are, some­one just pinged me and said “Look what’s pop­ping up on the blogs” (Gene Saun­ders, Dwayne Lee). Sum­ma­ry: Apache and MySQL and PHP and Squid, in var­i­ous com­bi­na­tion­s, all 64-bit builds op­ti­mized to the max with with the Stu­dio com­pil­er­s, which should be way faster than gcc build­s. Looks like some­body just saw an op­por­tu­ni­ty and Did The Right Thing; good on ’em.
 
Terror, Air Travel, Schneier · The world prob­a­bly doesn’t need too many more blogs say­ing “What He Said”, but, well... What Bruce Sch­neier said.
