Dear god. Is this what corporations do instead of serious engineering work to debloat the network stacks, drivers and hardware or start implementing things like TCP Fast Open? :-| Another example where fixing bufferbloat needs a strong front because people will start doing the wrong things when trying to fix something. Just as BitTorrent-induced latency was made the culprit of slow networks and caused people to think it's good to go away from Net Neutrality and charge premium for a premium experience. Nonsense!

Submission + - 8-Channel Floppy Disk Ensemble controlled by Raspberry Pi (youtube.com)

pysiak writes: "We've all heard many floppy disk concertos before, but this one's controlled by Raspberry Pi. The author, Daniel Kukiela, is using a tracker-style player software to arrange 8 tracks, including base, drums, chords and melody with legatos.

Submission + - Ask Slashdot: How to organize magazine sharing in the workpalce

pysiak writes: "Sharing is caring, right? See, whenever I buy a costlier/rarer/more interesting magazine/periodical than usual I have the urge to share it with others. I was thinking of organizing magazine sharing in my workplace so that others could bring interesting stuff they've read so that everyone could benefit. So far I have talked to about 5 people and could not get it to spark. Maybe this is a dumb idea? Hopefully not! Does anybody have experiences in this field to share?"
