Uptime robot (free for 50 monitors every 5 minutes) is cool:

These are xs4all fiber connections in Amsterdam and Sassenheim. Despite not mentioned on the xs4all status page [WayBackXS4ALL | Storingen en werkzaamheden, apparently there was some fiber down time in both places.

The HeldenVanNu fiber connection in Amsterdam was doing fine at that time; those downtimes below were planned on my side:

Microsoft Research’s manual memory management for .NET: exactly one owner which provides shields for accessing the objects

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/08/01

A very interesting piece of research, in which I see a very familiar concept of single owners and I new concept of them providing shields for accessing the manually managed memory. I do miss mentions of Anders Hejlsberg, Chuck (Charles) Jazdzewski, or others that lay the foundation of ownership in the [WayBackTComponent Branch.

Microsoft Research’s manual memory management for .NET: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/research/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/snowflake-extended.pdf

Interesting concept of manual but safe memory management with exactly one owner of an object at any given moment and shields that prevent an object’s destruction while it’s still in use by other threads.
