Previous posts on this topic: PPC on Ubuntu 12.04 PPC on Ubuntu 12.04 (update) * * * As my patch for Portable C compiler (PCC) was accepted, pcc can do __builtin_popcount() and I can use it to compile my pet projects written in C (bitfield, bitfield-eca, bitfield-io, bitfield-rule30). I updated my ppa repository at Launchpad. […]

Good news from the Portable C compiler (PCC): their latest snapshot supports multiarch. This means pcc will compile and work out-of-the-box on Debian and Ubuntu. I couldn’t resist sharing my debs, so I learnt how to use Launchpad and set up a dedicated repo. Feel free to use and comment.

After announcing the Share on Diaspora plugin on JoinDiaspora.com, I received a comment from Marc Jay Cobbs who “managed to save a wrong pod URL”, which renders the button unusable. Because I did not read carefully the javascript function that saves URLs (I reused it from another button), my answer was misleading. Time to correct […]

Not that I’m planning to write plugins for WordPress on a regular basis, so the first attempt may very well be the only one. Anyway, that is it: I wrote a plugin for WordPress. This plugin adds a “share on D*” button to the bottom of my blog posts. D* stands for Diaspora, a free […]

While sniffing the traffic flowing through a cjdns node is not possible by design (and that’s the selling point of cjdns!), a node owner might wish to see the traffic for which his/her node is the source or the destination. 1. Add a new rule to ip6tables: $ sudo ip6tables -A INPUT -i tun0 -j […]
