On Migrating from Google Analytics

yesterday by robknight

"In this post we'll explore what happened when I migrated away from Google Analytics (GA) to a self-hosted solution. The tool that I migrated to is an open-source platform called Countly. It offers a subset of features from what GA offers."

BGP in 2018 — The BGP Table | APNIC Blog

yesterday by mechazoidal

"While a number of providers have made significant progress in public IPv6 deployments for their respective customer base, the majority of the Internet user base is still exclusively using IPv4 for the moment.

Despite this uncertainty, nothing in this routing data indicates any serious cause for alarm in the current trends of growth in the routing system. There is no evidence of the imminent collapse of BGP.

None of the BGP metrics indicate that we are seeing such an explosive level of growth in the routing system that it will fundamentally alter the viability of the BGP routing table anytime soon."

Shannon Entropy, Information Gain, and Picking Balls from Buckets

yesterday by hellsten

- Entropy is in some way, the opposite of knowledge.

- In order to build the entropy formula, we want the opposite, some measure that gives us a low number for Bucket 1, a medium number for Bucket 2, and a high number for Bucket 3. No problem, this is where logarithms will come to save our life.

- The following is a very simple trick, yet used very widely, particularly in Machine Learning. See, products are never very good. Here we have a product of 4 numbers, which is not bad, but imagine if we...

Git Hammer - Collect and display statistics of git repositories

yesterday by liqweed

A statistics tool for projects in git repositories. Its major feature is tracking the number of lines authored by each person for every commit, but it currently includes some other useful statistics as well, and the data that it collects could be used in multiple new ways as well.
