Filled In requires 32 MB memory

I’m using John Godley‘s Filled In WordPress plug-in to allow people to register for Aardbron events.

However, when Filled In is activated, WordPress didn’t render some admin pages correctly anymore (Manage Posts, Manage Pages, etc.).

Got in touch with John, and he said: “Add the following to your .htaccess file:

php_value memory_limit 32M

And so I did and Filled In works fine now.

Thanks John!

Look what they do with P2P worms

Martijn van Steenbergen tipped me on The Storm Worm:

Some key points:

  • Storm is designed like an ant colony
  • Rather than having all hosts communicate to a central server or set of servers, Storm uses a peer-to-peer network for C2.
  • And even if a C2 node is taken down, the system doesn’t suffer. Like a hydra with many heads, Storm’s C2 structure is distributed.

Reminds me of an experiment I did we did with Jini and RIO. Once started up on several computers, we just couldn’t get the system down. Kill one, and somewhere else a new one pops up. Thought of desigining in a “suicide pill” that would trigger on some special message spread across the net.

SwarmOS Demonstrated at Idea Festival: “PacoCheezdom writes ‘Intelligent Life has short summary of a demonstration by MIT professor James McLurkin of his new group-minded robots, which run an operating system called ‘Swarm OS’.

The robots are able to work together as a group not by communicating with all members of the group at once, but by talking only to their neighbors, and model other similar behaviors performed by bees and ants. ‘Read more of this story at Slashdot.
