  28. ralphm For those with some German skills. For those without, the executive summary is: "Carbons >>> Hangouts, Stream Management is awesome. Yeah. The future. Yeah."
  29. simon he's a happy camper. Now we just need to get some mobile clients sorted.

  31. ralphm I really like watching http://display.ik.nu/xmpp.
  32. Tobias you and your self-signed certs ;)
  33. ralphm :-D
  34. ralphm Better than nothing, I suppose?
  35. Tobias probably
  36. Tobias it says via Twitter, are there other source that go into it?
  37. ralphm Not for this feed, no. But ikDisplay can have multiple different sources. It was originally created as a back channel for the federated semantic-web-like social networking sites I worked on at Mediamatic.
  38. ralphm Including ActivityStreams.

  41. ralphm Tobias: do you have any use cases?
  42. Tobias ralphm, just wondered about the sources...but i suppose not many networks have sources for public streams anyway
  43. ralphm Yay silos.

  51. ralphm Tobias: That said, it probably should have support for Superfeedr. However, its XMPP PubSub API has some non-standard warts.

  96. dwd xnyhps, To be fair, if you send more than 2^96 stanzas, you've a better than even chance of hitting a collision.
  97. winfried has left
  98. xnyhps You want to send the entire internet how many times? ;)
  99. dwd xnyhps, Although I imagine we could mitigate that by recommending people restart their XMLStream at least once before the heat death of the universe.
  100. Lloyd :)
  101. jabberjocke anybody have a good federated xmpp domain for groupies to the philips hue bands we are startig around the world
  102. jabberjocke the anni-frid@jabber.se <mailto:anni-frid@jabber.se>,bjorn@jabber.se <mailto:bjorn@jabber.se>, benny@jabber.se <mailto:benny@jabber.se> agneta@jabber.se <mailto:agneta@jabber.se> from abba@jabber.se <mailto:abba@jabber.se> is soon online
  103. Tobias disco will get a completely new meaning in the XMPP world (:
  104. jabberjocke YEEES :)
  105. ralphm jabberjocke: looking awesome #hue

  108. dwd xnyhps, Oh, he's right.
  109. dwd xnyhps, I think you hit parity on the probability of hitting a 10 hex-char (ie, 48-bit) hash fragment after only 4.5 million years on a stanza per second.
  110. xnyhps I meant outputting the first 10 bytes of the hash, not the first 10 bytes of the hex representation of the hash, so 80 bit.
  111. Lloyd has left
  112. xnyhps (Also, 10 hex-char is 40 bit, isn't it?)
  113. dwd Ah, yes.
  114. Kev It is worth noting, potentially, that while they're a generally bad idea, 0-based integer counters do have bandwidth going for them :)
  115. Tobias yeah...think of all the savings....when outputting tons of bloated XML
  116. Tobias ^^
  117. dwd Oh, don't start.
  118. Tobias ;)
  119. xnyhps Use compression, and pick random parts from the stream so far to use as ids.
  120. dwd That actually works.
  121. Kev Absolutely.
  122. Kev Use an RNG to select bits of a stream to avoid needing to use an RNG.
  123. dwd Kev, No, this is for saving bandwidth.
  124. xnyhps Just hope you don't actually pick the content of a message. :P
  125. Kev dwd: It can't possibly save bandwidth.
  126. Kev However many bytes of entropy you want to have are going to take that many bytes to transmit.
  127. Kev (At least that many bytes to transmit, you could transmit lots with little entropy, I realise)
  128. dwd Kev, No, not at all. If you select carefully, you can generate random identifiers that are always encoded by zlib as a reference, hence three octets or so.
  129. Kev And by doing so, you're reducing the entropy.
  130. Kev You're talking about selecting your randomness very carefully so that it's not too random :)
  131. dwd Smallish number of bits.
  132. Zash has joined
  133. dwd But it's OK, because you could send the *real* random data earlier in the stream to refer back to.
  134. Kev This is close enough to the edge of my knowledge that I accept I could be wrong in this. But this sounds like Not A Good Idea.
  135. xnyhps I was entirely not serious.
  136. dwd xnyhps, Nor me. But I'm wondering how far I can string Kev along. :-)
  137. Kev xnyhps: You, I believe. Dave I have less faith in...
  138. dwd Kev, You didn't like the suggestion that you'd put arbitrary random data in the stream, then refer back to it, so you get both the compression *and* the randomness?
  139. dwd I was proud of that one.
  140. Kev That bit I assumed was a joke. The rest I was less convinced about.
