Comment terrible media website (Score 0) 74

no comment on the DNS query nor on the route

basically this site is new media, it gathers data but uses a pre recorded voice to describe it i.e. it uses predefined comments about a users state....

it's a bit like the Huxley comment on society... it may be valid but really its recycled can we please have a new comment ?

thanks this is the internet its a little different (not huge but a little)

Comment protocol and codec ? before trust... verify (Score 1) 56

I honestly dont know how people can trust that they are doing the right thing without knowing about the design....

They use a modified SIP communications for Audio is it the same for video ?

knowing the codec would be good ?

the problem is that is it point to point or simply proxied through their servers ?

anyone know ?

Comment NO CACHE so its slow (Score 1) 110

what this really means is you will not be able to cache updates via HTTP

honestly I do not know why they have NOT used plain HTTP to download the objects (fall back to https/p2p if needed and have them as options) this would make caches so much faster
(yes verify those objects via cryptographic hash obtained via DANE and TLS )

honestly why cant Microsoft , Apple and Linux/BSD all agree on the transport mechanism (I propose HTTP) this would make life and speed better for everyone
