How to turn on your lights the Philips way

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/06/23

This was too funny to let go unnoticed: [WayBack] How to turn on the light at home, Philips Version – Kristian Köhntopp – Google+.

It was shown during [Archive.isGoogle Cloud Next 2017 in Amsterdam and immediately reminded me of The Big Bang Theory – How to turn on a lamp below.

A few notable entries from the comments:

  • Wie viele Server braucht man bei Philips, um eine Glühbirne zu wechseln?
  • Apple macht das wohl ähnlich, hier dient ein AppleTV oder ein iPad als “Bridge zur Bridge”.
  • They’re at least honest — the icon of the cloud in the upper left prominently displays a “waiting” circle animation. I also notice the use of the word “looks” rather than “works” in the title, which is probably also accurate.

The Bogon Reference – Team Cymru

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/06/23


A bogon prefix is a route that should never appear in the Internet routing table. A packet routed over the public Internet (not including over VPNs or other tunnels) should never have a source address in a bogon range. These are commonly found as the source addresses of DDoS attacks.

Source: The Bogon Reference – Team Cymru

The regular Bogon list is pretty static (last change in 2012), so I’ve listed the text version below. But the full Bogon list (including unused IPv4 space) is dynamic.
