Added PKCS#10 support to ASN1js

Tonight I added PKCS#10 support to #ASN1js.

…by parsing RFC 2986 and, unfortunately, by applying a minimal set of patches to simplify its ASN.1 dialect as my parser doesn't yet support it all… interesting how older RFCs used a much more complicated #ASN1 than more recent ones.

Just a point pro the hypothesis "recent RFCs use simpler ASN.1 syntax", today I added parsing of RFC 4210 & 4211 and it was quite straightforward.

Super-interesting thread about government-frustration-based #opensource, a small server that scrapes prices from major groceries and a completely client-side PWA to search thru it.

Would love to see an Italian fork of this.

Kudos to @Mario Zechner

Today was ... interesting. If you followed me for the past months over on the shitbird site, you might have seen a bunch of angry German words, lots of graphs, and the occassional news paper, radio, or TV snippet with yours truely. Let me explain.

In Austria, inflation is way above the EU average. There's no end in sight. This is especially true for basic needs like energy and food.

Our government stated in May that they'd build a food price database together with the big grocery chains. But..

#Magic #quine FTW!

The Professor of Spellcraft studied the parchment.
"Hmm. No, I have not seen this spell before. What does it do?"
"When you read it out, it creates a parchment with that spell written on it."
"That's all?"
"Isn't that neat?"
"But why?"
"To see if I could."

I notice that I go to twitter nowadays almost exclusively for news about #AI #LLM #neuralNetworks and it seems most of the contents are still there.

(On the other hand, e.g., infosec people seems to be most active here on the Fediverse.)

Is there any "user cluster" I didn't notice or subscribe to on those arguments in here, or do you think I might be right?

I don’t ever use X, but I think you’re probably right. I subscribe to the tags you used and I get a little of both pro & anti content. The most interesting stuff seems to be on hacker news — fwiw I look for engineering-heavy content, so I get pretty turned off by the “magic AI” people

That has been my experience as well, although I've stopped using Twitter entirely recently. I've been following a lot of AI researchers recently here, so you might check my following list.

VictoriaLogs is here!

I've been waiting for #VictoriaLogs for a while… and now it's here! 🤩

#VictoriaMetrics #ElasticSearch #ELK
C S reshared this.
The slide that got me most excited:
- VictoriaLogs uses 2.2× less CPU than ElasticSearch
- VictoriaLogs uses 28× less RAM than ElasticSearch
- VictoriaLogs uses 13× less disk space than ElasticSearch
- VictoriaLogs performs typical log analysis queries faster than ElasticSearch

Oh, I didn't notice there was an official announce by @Denys Holius here on the Fediverse too!

I am happy to announce that we have released the first release of VictoriaLogs.
The release is located at https://github.com/VictoriaMetrics/VictoriaMetrics/releases/tag/v0.1.0-victorialogs

Docs: https://docs.victoriametrics.com/VictoriaLogs/
Docker demos: https://docs.victoriametrics.com/VictoriaLogs/QuickStart.html#docker-demos
Helm Chart: https://github.com/VictoriaMetrics/helm-charts/tree/master/charts/victoria-logs-single

We have prepared a Benchmark for VictoriaLogs, which is located at https://github.com/VictoriaMetrics/VictoriaMetrics/tree/master/deployment/logs-benchmark

#VictoriaMetrics is getting better and better, even on my home installation RAM usage went down from 958 MiB to 381 MiB upgrading from 1.87.6 to 1.93.0. 🎉

…and if you're still using plain old #Prometheus do know that Victoria Metrics is a plug-in #OpenMetrics replacement (even the scraping file is compatible) and everything will be faster and both RAM and disk usage will go down dramatically.

AAAA glue records

I didn't notice but it seems that in 2019 italian registration authority (finally!!) added support for AAAA glue records, necessary for recursive #DNS resolution based purely on #IPv6 connections.

My registrar #ArubaIT still doesn't support that in the web interface, but they were nice and fast doing that manually when I opened a ticket.

And thus, finally, after many years of wait this is finally possible:

% drill -T6 aaaa lapo.it | fgrep AAAA
lapo.it.        86400   IN      AAAA    2a01:4f8:151:1d7::7

PS: unfortunately ldns’ drill does not yet show glue records explicitly during a trace, but I will wait on that too.

Frightening. #OpenSource #EU

EU policymakersPolicymakers haven't really thought this one through, have they...

If you think you participate or use open source in any way (and these days, the answer is a resounding YES), this should concern you.


Oh yes, thanks!!
I usually do that myself, but this time I didn't (for no reason).

Italian companies working in Russia

Interesting link: which Italian companies stopped operating in Russia or not.

This is your reminder that some companies left Russia after #Putin's #invasion of #Ukraine, whilst others kept right on trading. This excellent site has lists of who stayed and who left:


Let's boycott companies that prop up Putin and fund his sadistic invasion.
