I got around to taking screenshots of RedStar 3, which hasn’t really made its way onto the internet yet. It really does look mac-like, and is using a skin that as far as I can tell is custom made rather than being modified from an existing Linux theme. Apps are packaged using a mac-like folder… Continue reading RedStar
Pretty excited about the data visualization course at UW this winter.
Code for Seattle meetup this evening. Big plans for the year.
Experimenting with 802.11s
The purpose of this document is an explanation of what is defined in the IEEE 802.11s standard, and the states of current implementations based on this standard. 802.11s is the standardization of mesh networking. That is to say that it defines a protocol for mobile devices where they can communicate amongst themselves even when not directly connected, and can route data beyond their immediate environment.

I have now migrated the python torrent client that I’ve been working on to a google code project. It lives at torrentauditor and now has basic support for actually downloading torrent files. I researched the bittorrent extension protocols this week, but was somewhat frustrated by what I found. Most of the interesting ones are implemented… Continue reading Torrent Auditor
I extended the work from last week in order to actually get data from a swarm. The main change is that new sockets are now allocated for each connection, state is remembered, and the client can actually get so far as to download data from the other peers. What needs to happen still is that… Continue reading Downloading Torrents
Auditing Bit torrent
One of the strengths of bit torrent is that the primary data transfer protocol is entirely separate from the advertisement protocol. This also has created a strain both in discovering other users who have data, and keeping accurate reports of data that was transfered. The first issue is one that has been developed for extensively,… Continue reading Auditing Bit torrent
