Better Software Defined Radio Drivers

It seems that every couple months now a new Software Defined Radio (SDR) is announced. The real cost of an SDR includes not only the dollar amount but a time commitment to refactoring the new hardware driver into your codebase. We can do better than this, using stdin, stdout, & stderr we can create language-agnostic drivers that save us time and complexity.

Stratfor Relationship Graph

WikiLeaks began publishing The Global Intelligence Files in 2012, over five million e-mails from the Texas headquartered "global intelligence" company Stratfor. Sometime during that summer I spent a few hours paging through these emails.

4chan Regex Practice

Many, many years ago I decided that I needed some regex practice and background aside I'd like to think that any survey is a survey worth sharing. What follows is a quick tutorial on using linux shell commands to parse an A/S/L (Age/Sex/Location) thread on 4chan. This is the bottom of the barrell my friends.
