Seems Pretty Straight Forward:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install netatalk
sudo apt-get install avahi-daemon
/huge/TimeMachine "TimeMachine" options:tm to
Create /etc/avahi/services/afpd.service with contents:
sudo service netatalk restart && sudo service avahi-daemon restart
So Read-it-later is a webs service that allows you to book mark articles to read later. The did an interesting analysis of what people read when and on what devices. Their results compare pretty much to my usage profile for the iPhone and iPad.
The iPad is a couch consumption device. I use it for reading email, quick email replies, reading facebook, surfing the web, and as an e-reader. I don’t find it good for creating content out side of the most basic snark-attacks on someone’s wall.
The iPhone for me, before it started sucking wind, was what the Read it Later people say it was – a downtime device. Something to due while waiting in line, stuck in traffic, or during a boring meeting.
When I want to do real content creation, I do it on my Mac. Nothing beats a full-sized keyboard, a 27″ monitor, multiple windows open, etc.
That is why I don’t expect Apple to do away with their MacOSX product line. iOS is great for consumption. OSX is great for creation. Sure some guy claims he edited a movie on his iPad. That means it can be done, not that that is the way it should be done.
Useful guide to Mac troubleshooting. I wasn’t sure what the difference between the gray apple screen and the grey apple screen with the spinning gear.

Interesting tid-bit on how to DOS Google if you’re so inclined.
Some of the search queries can cause huge IO. One example Jeff gave is “circle of life” as one phase enclosed in double quotation marks. It could incur 30GB I/O before. As I just searched on Google, the phrase is now a song name. I bet it’s now in Google’s cache server.
When there are so many servers to manage, something unique happened. Jeff mentioned an interesting phenomenon called “query of death.” If a query can causes a server to crash, then it can crash all other servers because the software stack is the same. To avoid large scale of crashes, they used canary request which is first sent to one machine. If it’s good, then send it to the rest of machines; otherwise reject the request after failing several times. It of course adds a little delay but far better than large scale system crash. Of course, you need to log down the query and found out why it crashed software as a process of continuous improvement. Jeff didn’t mention this, but I bet Google did that.

So, I wonder what the I/O load is on google if I did a search on:
“Ubuntu Private Cloud Prince William Engagement” or “MySQL Replication Senator McConnell Earmark ban”
Pick any two other totally different subject and combine them into a single query.
I’ll admit, we use Netflix streaming and Netflix a lot. I just don’t see the NetFlix catalog as being big enough to encompass 20% of consumer bandwidth.
Netflix streaming consumes 20pct of download throughput during weekday primetime hours

I find it fascinating what kind of electronic fingerprints are left by modern technology. From password guessing based on the intervals between packet transmission to detecting minute gaps in an analog conversation to determine a call originated in Nigeria and not New York.
