onekb.net offers ultra cheap hosting... if you can fit your stuff into 1024 bytes!

I decided to write a mandelbrot renderer in 1kb. mndlbrt is the result! You can zoom and even share the current image with others (the URL automtaically updates to represent the current area). Also learned a bit about the HTML canvas in the process, which has a surprisingly sane API for webstandards.

A new noindex proposal

So, today I improved my blog by adding more semantic markup, in hope that this will improve the indexability of my page. The blog now uses XHTM5 instead of XHTML1. It heavily uses rel attributes, has some <meta/> tags in the <head/> area and properly uses <article/>, <nav/>, <aside/> and tons of other new HTML5 features. (I already wrote about it here)

This should help webcrawlers properly indexing this blog.

But here's another problem: The header (of course, properly marked up as a <header/> tag) includes a cool (well, at least I think so...) random text that changes with every visit. Unfortunately crawlers seem to think, that this text is part of the actual content.

So I needed a way to tell a crawler to not index that one element.

Did I already mention, I was excited for Crippled Black Phoenix' new album? Yes, I did!

Soooo, today I finally bought the album (in a non-online-store, can't remember the last time I did that). And guess what, it is great!

You probably have heard of it. There was a bug in OpenSSL, dubbed Heartbleed.

This seems to be quite a catastrophic bug, since it was possible to get the private key parts of the SSL/TLS certificates, allowing eavesdropping of encrypted traffic.

I've published simplechat, a websocket-based chat application written in Go and Javascript.

It provides throwaway chatrooms: A chatroom is identified by it's URL, it will be spawned when the first one enters the room (visits the URL) and is deleted when the last one leaves the room. Nothing is stored permanently and no login is required.

Here is my public installation

Some small Go libraries

I've published buzhash (a rolling hash implementation) and binproto (a binary protocol). Both were part of a larger project that I will probably never publish or finish. But perhaps these libraries will be useful for someone.
