Help me spec out a replacement home network using Ubiquiti bits
View Build-Troys-Network
That's it - I've finally lost it with Linksys and both my WRT 1900ACs that are only a year old are getting chucked. Don't get me started on all the reasons why, but it's primarily down to continued degradation of wifi signal and the constant need for reboots. Going by the responses to this tweet, that's just what they do:
I’m going all out with Ubiquiti instead. No, I'm not interested in [insert the other thing you think rocks here], there's a really vocal majority in favour of Ubiquiti so that's that. Now I need help speccing out what I need for my house as it’s not quite as straight forward as just chucking in a couple of (dodgy) routers.
Here’s what I’m working with:
- Large multi-level house about 500m2 (needs at least 2 APs, probably more)
- Wired ethernet to every room (I believe Cat 5e, was here when I got here)
- Patch board in the garage and a 100Mbps hub (running patch cables out to a Linksys 8 port gigabit switch instead)
- 4 wired connection

This snippet of code is syntactically valid in both PHP and Java, and produces the same output in both.
//*/public class PhpJava { public static void main(String[] args) { System.out.printf("/*%s",
class PhpJava {
static function main() {
"Hello World!");

Update: download the new Pokemon Go app - it fixes all of this. Download it, and reauth, and you should be set. The grant scopes and prompt are correct and visible now too! Now if only I could actually find a pikachu...

Pokemon tokens are requested with these understandable scopes:

About Those Lava Lamps

Around 2006-2007, it was a bit of a fashion to hook lava lamps up to the build server. Normally, the green lava lamp would be on, but if the build failed, it would turn off and the red lava lamp would turn on.

By coincidence, I've actually met, about that time, (probably) the first person to hook up a lava lamp to a build server. It was Alberto Savoia, who'd founded a testing tools company (that did some very interesting things around generative testing that have basically never been noticed). Alberto had noticed that people did not react with any urgency when the build broke. They'd check in broken code and go off to something else, only reacting to the breakage they'd caused when some other programmer pulled the change and had problems.

Using wget + grep to explore inconveniently organized federal data (FAA Section 333 Exemptions)

if !database: wget + grep

The Federal Aviation Administration is posting PDFs of the Section 333 exemptions that it grants, i.e. the exemptions for operators who want to fly drones commercially before the FAA finishes its rulemaking. A journalist wanted to look for exemptions granted to operators in a given U.S. state. But the FAA doesn't appear to have an easy-to-read data file to use and doesn't otherwise list exemptions by location of operator.

However, since their exemptions page is just one giant HTML table for listing the PDFs, we can just use wget to fetch all the PDFs, run pdftotext on each file, and then [grep](
