Summer Coding Plans. - 10/06/2017 Public

This summer I want to code a number of small single-file servers for various useful things. I call the project seekquarry/atto. Currently, I am hosting it at github, but I'll probably also keep a copy at seekquarry.com. So far I've coded a Node.js style PHP web server and gopher server. The next server I am going to work on is a combined smtp/imap server. Some of the code for these will be worked in to various group features of my Yioop search engine. I have been following SSD prices, my plan is to start a new large scale crawl when 4tb ssd prices get down to the 500-700 dollar range. I have some ideas on how to improve organic search result which I'll also try testing.
Hope other people have a super happy summer, Chris

Imported some old Blogger posts. - 09/04/2016 Public

I added the ability to Yioop software to import forum and blog discussions based on rss or atom feeds. I was trying to migrate all my old Google class discussion from google over to Yioop.com. In the process I remembered I had an old blogger account which I downloaded the data for. It only has a few posts from 2005-2006 but it was interesting to see what I thought would be cool technologies of the future.

Getting rid of unwanted applications in OSX El Capitan. - 09/03/2016 Public

Some programs in OSX can be annoying. For example, I generally don't want Photos.app, iTunes, etc to automatically pop up when I connect something to my machine. I don't like the idea of apps phoning home, etc. I don't like the idea of not being able to uninstall apps I don't want. On OSX EL Capitan there is software System Integrity Protection which makes it hard to uninstall some of the pre-loaded applications from Apple. The actual purpose of SIP is reasonable enough: Prevent people from messing with important OS file systems on your machine. These include folders like:
  • /System
  • /usr
  • /bin
  • /sbin
but it also includes pre-loaded software.
System Integrity Protection can be disabled by:
  1. Booting the machine in recovery mode (Command-R at restart till Apple logo)
  2. Then a terminal type:
     csrutil disable
    
  3. Restart To re-enable it, one can follow the same as the above except changing disable to enable . Once you've disabled it, you can do:
     sudo rm -rf /Applications/Photos.app
    
    etc. to get rid of pre-loaded programs you don't want.
Since SIP is generally a good thing you can then boot back into recovery mode to re-enable it.
