Migrating from Drupal to Ikiwiki

TLPL; j'ai changé de logiciel pour la gestion de mon blog. TLDR; I have changed my blog from Drupal to Ikiwiki. Note: since this post uses ikiwiki syntax (i just copied it over here), you may want to read the original version instead of this one. will continue operating for a while to give a chance to feed aggregators to catch that article. It will also give time to the Internet archive to catchup with the static stylesheets (it turns out it doesn't like Drupal's CSS compression at all!) An archive will therefore continue being available on the internet archive for people that miss the old stylesheet. Eventually, I will simply redirect the anarcat.koumbit.org URL to the new blog location, . This will likely be my last blog post written on Drupal, and all new content will be available on the [...]

Announcing a prettier noping

I have implemented really pretty histograms in the venerable ping software, something I never thought could be improved, until I discovered prettyping.sh, something that was just begging for improvements. Which are now done. But first some history... First, in 1983 (!), there was ping and network operators rejoiced, as they could see if a host was down or not, and have all sorts of geeky statistics: PING koumbit.net (209.44.112.66): 48 data bytes 56 bytes from 209.44.112.66: icmp_seq=0 ttl=52 time=25.076 ms 56 bytes from 209.44.112.66: icmp_seq=1 ttl=52 time=24.006 ms 56 bytes from 209.44.112.66: icmp_seq=2 ttl=52 time=24.106 ms ^C--- koumbit.net ping statistics --- 3 packets transmitted, 3 packets received, 0% packet loss round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 24.006/24.396/25.076/0.483 ms Then, in 2006, there was noping, and things were, well, not [...]

New Debian release: my contributions to the #newinwheezy game

So while I haven't work exceptionally hard to help with the Debian Wheezy release (I merely help with a few RC bugs and organised a bug squashing party), I still have a few significant contributions to the release. So here's my claim to fame to the #newinwheezy game: Charybdis - a popular and solid IRC server which is the base of the software behind the Freenode network (amongst others) Kedpm - a Figaro compatible password manager, one of the few out there which supports both a console and graphical UI tty-clock - a simple console [...]

Live radio streaming with MPD, part 2: multicast RTP

The previous article was introducing basic streaming principles based on Icecast. The issue with this, of course, is lag and overhead of HTTP-based connexions. In this article we introduce RTP-based streaming system, (unfortunately) based on Pulseaudio and multicast. (Update: there was a rant here about Pulseaudio (PA) that I have moved out of this post because it's not what I was aiming to talk about. Those wanting to answer that troll are welcome to join the flamewar here.) A word on multicast I took the opportunity of trying out Multicast (it's actually  [...]
