HTTP2 is finally here
(link via Hacker News). I'm not
happy about it, but what can I (or you) do? It's a done deal.
Part of the reason I don't like it is that it seems as if Google pushed this for
their own needs.
You have a completely warped perspective here.
This is something Google pushed, so that Google can have as many
tracking cookies as they like when you browse the internet, without the
cookies causing a noticeable performance degradation because a http request
might exceed the American DSLs MTU size.
This was one of the primary engineering criterias. No really.
There's no features in it for the user.

Google is now in a position to dictate the architecture of the web. Sure,
one could ignore Google and blithely go about their web business, but really,
if you want to even have a chance of being found on the web, you follow
dictates commands of Google! Heck, even I kept
mucking with my blog until I got the “okay”
from Google (although there
were other reasons I did the change besides Google, notice I didn't stop
until Google said I was okay). And don't think Google will stop
there (which is another rant for another time).
Another reason I don't like HTTP2 is that, as written, it's TCP over TCP. I can understand why they did it that
way, but it's sad that for as much power as
Google has, even they couldn't force a more sensible change.
Plus ça change, plus ils deviennent énervant.
You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go
ahead, I won't bite. I promise.
The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: https://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
