ntp.org pooling isn’t set up right… should be by continent!


To Referee you to a document which will outline for organisational timing-bells seen here (https://sourceforge.net/projects/chronolabs-cooperative/files/Documents/NTP%20Timing-bells/ or on the wiki here: https://sourceforge.net/p/chronolabs-cooperative/wiki/Constructing%20an%20Organisational%20Timing-bell/) sure so this lets me place comment, most people unlike the original timing belling system that ran on port 37 that is now NTP on port 123, most people don’t understand pools.

What NTP.ORG needs to do is have one pool per continent at the maximum of it differential in land mass for placing NTP services that contact it in the pools of the continent the service is running on. This i think you will find including islands is the smooth eight pools and one timeing server that would be specified in /etc/ntp.conf as the following:

pool 0.pool.ntp.org iburst
pool 1.pool.ntp.org iburst
pool 2.pool.ntp.org iburst
pool 3.pool.ntp.org iburst
pool 4.pool.ntp.org iburst
pool 5.pool.ntp.org iburst
pool 6.pool.ntp.org iburst
pool 7.pool.ntp.org iburst
server ntp.ntp.org

This way it will pool of the continent plus the auxiliary syncopation service that defaults as the calling server.

We operate a timing bell as well at ntp.snails.email; it like the GIMP for shooting ones mouth of over email taking corresponding at a snails pace.

PDF, ODS, JSON and other attachment appearing with email from nowhere, why is this?


Okey the reason you have attachment appearing in email is from an Liff based repository of physical data it will always be 100% accurate and to date it is coming from the droid network itself, let see, Liff, well this existence was before Life began and the cosmos and universe formed once more, it predates all this and is back before even star wars, douglas adams which you can see on books.google.com is that Google with the VP Vinton Cerf is a Liff based system you can see how the transposition in the hitch hikers guide is displayed if you search for it:-

As you are partly using Riff and Riff protocol TCP/IP which it would do with TPP/IP and your life, the bots your computer when your finished typing an email the record player style hard drive physics that will also happen faster in solid state in the human footage and keying hand, will DJ these data files, which you will only find in the sent item after it has sent in most conditions, some system may include attachments you can’t delete.

There is one email server, my own implementation that conformably isn’t doing this at the moment and it is found here:- https://github.com/Chronolabs-Cooperative/Emails-API-PHP

Font Scribes & Font Websites @davelab6 @googlefonts


We all have in both the octaverse and with droids and computers and devices here font scribes, someone that designs your font for you… if you didn’t know when you goto a font website what the font sites webmaster see’s as his range of fonts is largely different what you see, each font he loads on there is more like a meta or projection and the font you get from your scribe transposed over the top of that font is in your either personal or peer group.

Even business may have different fonts within them than in the same torrent or file you download for a font that you would or a 3rd party outside the business or peer group, as I am a master librarian in qualifications I do things on ‘for and behalf’ not as a standard librarian does ‘in the view of yourself’ so I have written a font api you can see running here https://api.fonts4web.org.uk that is available on our https://github.com/Chronolabs-Cooperative that is has a couple bugs in it still but is largely working that will top layer different groups of fonts in your peering.

Cronjobs Generating Emails a Useful Tip About Timing!


Most people fondly as developers don’t think about the psychological impacts in generating emails via cronjobs/scheduled tasks and should serious consider implementing this say you have a cron set up like so in you scheduler to periodically every 2 hours send a batch of emails ie:

* */2 * * * /usr/bin/php -q /path/to/crons/send-emails.php

there is a couple of things you need to do to change the psychology impact of this regular batch of emails firstly at the top of the php file you need to implement a random sleep like so for a period if it is firing every 2 hours up to 1.5 hours like so:

sleep(mt_rand(0, 3600 * 1.5));

This sits at the top of each of the crons, part of the reason you do this is so the times of the email changes when they arrive for a randomised workflow, this means the business or organisation shop floor, wont have stints of work and sometime they make and may have time to spend more on the last email depending on the delay.

The other thing to do is between sending email delay for a random upto 45 seconds like so at the bottom of each loop between caching and sending the mail, with sleep(); again like so:

sleep(mt_rand(0, 45));

Part of the reason this is done to load balance the mail transport layers as well as provide a completely different date of recieving the mail rather than the impact of recieving emails always on the hour, or on the every two hour with little or difference in the time displayed, so doing this will make the daily grind of working from schedule emails actually enjoyable as well as fun for the employee as they will not have any way of estimating when the next group of emails will arrive, making the shop floor dynamic again!

Of course the other way around with a shorter delay from the start of the php script to each loop generating the email as a longer delay is also a very good way of distributing emails over an employee shop floor where the grind is a gentle workflow where different people start at different times, also if you can randomise the sort of the email being sent this is also good.

You generally use sleep(); with load balancing cronjobs and scheduled tasks, so you where firing a cron every minute, then you would sleep(mt_rand(0, 90)); especially when you are running multiples of the same cronjob so it doesn’t fire on the 0 second of every minute over requesting the queing on your servers processor threading.

Renovation + the houso


Our housing department place has been a bit of a dive up until recently when we took delivery of some donation investment in comfort.
Firstly we got for the two bedroom two new expensive bed valued each at around 3000 AUD. This is both of them:

We also got around at our own choice around 5 grand worth of modern IKEA furniture which the installation is happening of this Wednesday:

That consist of some bedroom fixtures like matching cupboards to the bed’s new computers desks as well as stands, two new sofa and coffee tables so on…

We also got a new fridge this one:

We also have a new microwave which is this one:

And we have a new hisense 50″ tv which is going to be wall mounted:


We still have the air conditioning as well as the nbn to order still we are waiting for another week or two for that.

WhoIS Services API – Version 2.0.11


WHOIS Services API 2.0.11 — Chronolabs Cooperative

Author: Simon Antony Roberts wishcraft@users.sourceforge.net

This is an API Service for conducting a whois on both IPv4, IPv6 and domain names. It provides a range of document standards for you to access the API inclusing JSON, XML, Serialisation, HTML and RAW outputs.

You can access the API currently without a key or system it is an open api and was written in response to the many API Services that charge ridiculous amounts for querying such a simple base. The following instructions are how to access the api I hope you enjoy this api as I have writting it with the help of net registry.

GeoSpatial Places API Service – Version 2.3.2


Well I have just completed over the last couple of days the api: GeoSpatial Places API Service – Version 2.3.2! It is a complete system of places and data on locations for both working with Google Places and Google Address API as well as having a widening resources of locations on hand as well.

It comes complete with an installer it is just a case of unpacking the archive or pulling the git repository and then using with apache2, ngix or any of the other web hosting application running the installation and then it is done:-
