Retweeted by James IryIf you use a 4 leaf clover on St. Paddy’s day and someone calls you out for messing w/ the “holy trinity” say the 4th leaf symbolizes Bono @paul_snively @pchiusano But…”multicore” doesn’t mean SIMD?Anyway, Happy Sir Patrick’s Day! scientists say Ireland never had any snakes so St. Paddy took fake credit. Probably in a green hat "Make I… Patrick drove the snakes out of Ireland. We wear GREEN to honor this ecological monster?
Who do I know who has experienced and solved fun/bizarre linker errors in the upgrade from Swift 2.x to 3.0?The new PR strategy from @McDonaldsCorp is bold. Innovative.
@hivetheory Yeah, who briefed her? Her microwave. Just saying.

Retweeted by James Iry @SlateGist Mike said chimps have tails. He apparently missed this important documentary on the subject the powerful elite taking public transportation., been awhile since I took civics. Was it “of the people, for the people, and…hidden from the people?” @constantine_jn How much can a house know, really? @johnregehr I think saying “shite” is how Linus celebrates St. Patrick’s day.
@jamesiry 🤔 nonplussed == 0 0 + 1 == 1 (bool)1 == true We're all good here.
Retweeted by James IryIf you write a PR comment that you are “nonplussed” and somebody adds a “+1” is the comment now a lie? @marius That’s some 4 dimensional c̶h̶e̶s̶s̶ stack @Myriachan scratch that. I know that’s not likely. Restores almost never work in production.What if we already have and the System Administrator has had to restore us from a backup?
Retweeted by James IryYesterday S3 crashed. Today Github changed their colors. You can’t trust anything on the Internet.
Monitoring system relies on availability of system it monitors. This is what you get when you focus on recursion in… only explanation that makes sense: AWS hosts the red X on S3 Internet routes around damage except when it’s Amazon S3 @nuttycom Amazon status page finally caught up with reality “We are investigating increased error rates for Amazon S3 … in the US-EAST-1 …” @nuttycom Their status page says it’s up.

@bartschuller @samth many $100,000’s of compute, Google collided a known weak hash. Meanwhile one botched memcpy leaked the Internet’s passwords.Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah… @peterseibel Most probably think the Russian flag is a red field with a gold hammer and sickle on it. #oneoldfarttoanother @jamesiry It seems like the security community uses "memory leak" to mean this thing, instead of what God intended it to mean. :)
Retweeted by James Iry @biboudis @samth open to brute force attacks. So, yeah, don’t make it too easy for an attacker but also don’t lay awake worrying about it @biboudis @samth DDOS on the other hand…I just lump DDOS in a totally different category. DDOS, unlike most security vulns, is always… @biboudis @samth Yeah, bad handling of out-of-memory condition is the rare case I was thinking of that create security probs… @samth No wonder infosec says software devs don’t understand them. We aren’t even speaking the same language.Memory leaks rarely create security problems. Cloudbleed is a read past end of buffer.Cloudbleed is being called a “memory leak.” That phrase means something totally different. @matthew_d_green @tqbf Which is to say, both are solid pieces of advice. @matthew_d_green @tqbf Even if TLS terminates on a trusted machine, a C buffer overrun in an NGINX component could still leak secrets.
Cloudflare have been leaking customer HTTPS sessions for months. Uber, 1Password, FitBit, OKCupid, etc.

@philswenson Maybe that’s true at some companies, but not universally true (even adjusting for cost of living diffs between cities)No thanks. I already saw the press conference. @datamiller Haha! Sucker!Thinking that management is the inevitable result of growth as a software engineer is doing both roles a gross disservice. @extempore2
