  • Welcome to Apache Pig! – Apache Pig is a platform for analyzing large data sets that consists of a high-level language for expressing data analysis programs, coupled with infrastructure for evaluating these programs. The salient property of Pig programs is that their structure is amenable to substantial parallelization, which in turns enables them to handle very large data sets.

  • Turn one batch of red kidney beans into four different meals | Get ahead | Life and style | The Guardian – A hillock of kidney beans always amounts to a hale and hearty meal.

  • How To Wakeup Backup Nas Server and Mirror Files Using Rsync in Linux – I've a critical data stored on my small home server. I backup my Desktop, Laptop and a remote VPS server to my home nas server powered by Debian Linux using rsnapshot backup utility. In the event that my main nas server has a hardware (hard disk failure) problem, having mirrored files provides some sort of peace of mind. How do I mirror /backups/personal (total 100GB and growing everyday) to a secondary nas Linux server located in my network?

  • Bint Rhoda’s Kitchen: How to Make Really (Smooth) Authentic Hummus – Hummus . . . a creamy, garlicky, lemony,  protein-packed dip.  It's all the rage in this country now, the most ubiquitous Arabic food to reach the American table.  I am not sure when hummus became so popular here, because when I would travel back to the States as a child and teenager, most Americans approached our plate of hummus with a great deal of, um, suspicion, and rarely tasted it enthusiastically. My, how things have changed. 

    The word hummus is the Arabic word for chickpea (also known as a garbanzo bean).  In fact, this dip is technically called hummus bi tahini, meaning chickpeas with tahini.

  • Are You Using This ‘Secret Weapon’ for Healthy Eating? – ver ‘resolved’ to start eating healthy only to have the wheels fall off after a short time?

    Well you’re not alone!

    There have been plenty of times where I’ve tried (and failed) to make healthy changes in my life.

    The good news is it wasn’t your fault your resolution didn’t stick. Pretty much everyone struggles to succeed if they’re relying on willpower.

    As Kelly Mc Gonigal Ph.D writes in her book, ‘The Will Power Instinct’ willpower is something we all only have a finite amount of. This is why it can be so difficult to exert self control at times.

    Especially when we’re tired. Because our willpower ‘reserves’ are at there lowest at the end of the day.

    So what’s the alternative?

    In a word. Habits.

  • Spaghetti alla carbonara – This recipe first appeared in Waitrose Kitchen magazine.
  • How to make the perfect porchetta | Life and style | The Guardian – The Italian version of hog roast, stuffed with garlic and herbs and generously salted, is utterly sublime. But lacking consensus on how to prepare it, I’ve had to spend a month testing slow-cooked pork and salty crackling
  • Grilled Tofu With Chipotle-Miso Sauce | Serious Eats : Recipes – Chipotle and miso come from two different cooking traditions, but they make great bedfellows in this recipe for grilled tofu—first as a marinade, then as a sauce. Combine that with our techniques for turning out perfectly grilled tofu, and you won't even miss the meat.
  • purifycss/purifycss – Detects which CSS selectors your app is using and creates a file without the unused CSS.
  • The 20 best Italian recipes: part 2 | Life and style | The Guardian – One of the most warming dishes you can get high up in the mountains, especially of the Aosta Valley, is polenta concia, which sustains even the strongest worker. It is usually accompanied by a stew of chicken or venison. With pork sausages, however, it blends to a perfect marriage.

    I like to use traditional polenta but if you use quick-cook polenta the cooking time is only 5 minutes. The Bramata polenta is by far the tastiest.

  • ssl/ssh multiplexer – sslh accepts connections on specified ports, and forwards them further based on tests performed on the first data packet sent by the remote client.

    Probes for HTTP, SSL, SSH, OpenVPN, tinc, XMPP are implemented, and any other protocol that can be tested using a regular expression, can be recognised. A typical use case is to allow serving several services on port 443 (e.g. to connect to ssh from inside a corporate firewall, which almost never block port 443) while still serving HTTPS on that port.

    Hence sslh acts as a protocol demultiplexer, or a switchboard. Its name comes from its original function to serve SSH and HTTPS on the same port.

    sslh supports IPv6, privilege dropping, transparent proxying, and more.
