RT @JamesBSumner@twitter.com: Yes, it was me who smuggled a large seabird into the plenary and launched it at the speaker's head with the words "Actually this is more of a cormorant than a question." I am to be considered for possible readmission to the society in 2038, which seems fair.

The performance numbers here are quite impressive. Some caveats and limitations though, but djb claims they can be mostly overcome with more development effort.

RT @hashbreaker@twitter.com First release of djbsort: super-fast constant-time automatically verified AVX2 sorting code for int32 arrays. sorting.cr.yp.to (Next target is ARM NEON.) Verification starts with the toolkit for symbolic execution, which in turn uses libVEX from Valgrind.

RT @atroyn@twitter.com: Things that happen in Silicon Valley and also the Soviet Union:

- waiting years to receive a car you ordered, to find that it's of poor workmanship and quality

Are you an heavy user of @InfluxDB@twitter.com? You might want to check out influx-spout to help manage the firehose of measurements. Also interesting if you're into performance sensitive code. menno.io/posts/introducing-inf
