nst/JSONTestSuite: A comprehensive test suite for RFC 7159 compliant JSON parsers

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/11/01

Cool: nst/JSONTestSuite: A comprehensive test suite for RFC 7159 compliant JSON parsers

Which is the result of the presentation seriot.ch – Parsing JSON is a Minefield 💣[WayBack]

Both the tests and presentation are well worth reading.

The graph gives me ambivalent feelings and make me wonder how various .NET and Delphi based JSON parsers stack up.

I wonder how Delphi and C# libraries stack up against these results especially since questions like What is the best JSON library to use for Delphi 10.1? To read and write JSON. – Godfrey Fletcher – Google+ [WayBack].

Hopefully the results by David Berneda will be published soon: I’ll do a quick test with TeeBI json import and the different libraries (System.Json, SuperObject etc)

Edit: Stefan Glienke mentioned he wrote a DUnit testsuite at http://pastebin.com/k5ktBxh9 [WayBack] that shows the built-in TJSONObject [WayBack] parser fails at least 25 of the tests.

Topic: [Resolved] Sharing on Google Plus Private..? Why? « WordPress.org Forums

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/11/01

The below is even more convoluted when you have ad-blockers installed: then the G+ integration won’t even appear and the behaviour differs between classic G+ and current G+.

So here are the steps:

  1. Remove the WordPress link from https://security.google.com/settings/security/permissions
  2. In your blog settings (for me that’s https://wordpress.com/sharing/wiert.me) remove the G+ integration; do this in a Chrome incognito Window if the G+ integration is not visible
  3. At the same page re-add your G+ integration and follow further steps at https://jetpack.com/support/publicize/google/#reconnecting

Modern G+ settings at https://plus.google.com/settings does not have the above permissions integration link but classic G+ at https://plus.google.com/settings?gmbpt=true&fd=1 does.

Hi there,

I have good news!

A few weeks ago, Google+ made some changes to their API. In doing so introduced some issues with Publicize. The module still worked, but the updates posted by the WordPress app on your Google+ Profile or Google+ Page were only visible to you.

In the past few weeks, we’ve worked with Google+ to start using a new API. That API works just like the old one, with one exception: publicized posts are now public. You can’t change the visibility of publicized posts to “My Circles”, or anything else.

If you’re happy to have Publicize publishing public posts to your Google+ Profile or Page, you can follow the instructions below to delete your old connection, and then reconnect your Jetpack site to your Google+ account:
https://jetpack.com/support/publicize/google/#reconnecting

I hope this helps.

OpenSuSE fix “piix4_smbus 0000:00:07.3: SMBus Host Controller not enabled!”

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/11/01

If you see this in journalctl after boot in a VM, then you likely want to disable piix4 smbus device detection:

Jul 07 23:02:47 revue systemd-udevd[507]: maximum number (136) of children reached
Jul 07 23:02:47 revue systemd-udevd[507]: maximum number (136) of children reached
...
Jul 07 23:02:47 revue systemd-udevd[507]: maximum number (136) of children reached
Jul 07 23:02:47 revue systemd-udevd[507]: maximum number (136) of children reached
...
Jul 07 23:02:47 revue kernel: piix4_smbus 0000:00:07.3: SMBus Host Controller not enabled!

The solution is to add one line to /etc/modprobe.d/50-blacklist.conf  (well: maybe [WayBack] add a comment line as well):

blacklist i2c_piix4

Comcast: a tool to similate network problems on BSD and Linux – tylertreat/comcast

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/11/01

At first I thought Comcast was a really good joke by Kristian Köhntopp, but it is actually a really cool open source tool with an appropriate name:

Comcast is a tool designed to simulate common network problems like latency, bandwidth restrictions, and dropped/reordered/corrupted packets.

It is written in go and works on BDS and derivatives (including Mac OS X). It could probably made to work on Windows too.

The source is on Github: tylertreat/comcast
