Cameron Kaiser: And now for something completely different: what you missed by not going to Vintage Computer Festival West XI

do, 11/08/2016 - 06:30
With the exception of this man, you all missed out by not coming to the reincarnated Vintage Computer Festival West. You had a chance to meet me and my beloved Tomy Tutor (which you can emulate on a Power Mac or Intel Mac). You had a chance to see other inferior exhibits. You didn't. So let me now make you feel bad about what you missed out on.

You could have seen the other great exhibits at the Computer History Museum,

the complete Tomy Tutor family, hosted by my lovely wife and me that corrupted young minds from a very early age (for which I won a special award for Most Complete and 2nd place overall in the Microcomputer category), seen a really big MOS 6502 recreation, played Maze War, solved differential equations the old fashioned way, realized that in Soviet Russia computer uses you, given yourself terrible eyestrain, used a very credible MacPaint clone on a Tandy Color Computer, messed with Steve Chamberlain's mind, played with an unusual Un*x workstation powered by the similarly unusual (and architecturally troublesome) Intel i860, marveled at the very first Amiga 1000 (serial #1), attempted to steal an Apple I, snuck onto Infinite Loop on the way back south, and got hustled off by Apple security for plastering "Ready for PowerPC upgrade" stickers all over the MacBooks in the company store.

But you didn't. And now it's too late.*

*Well, you could always come next year.

William Lachance: Perfherder Quarter of Contribution Summer 2016: Results

wo, 10/08/2016 - 22:37

Following on the footsteps of Mike Ling’s amazing work on Perfherder in 2015 (he’s gone on to do a GSOC project), I got two amazing contributors to continue working on the project for a few weeks this summer as part of our quarter of contribution program: Shruti Jasoria and Roy Chiang.

Shruti started by adding a feature to the treeherder/perfherder backend (ability to enable or disable a new performance framework on a tentative basis), then went on to make all sorts of improvements to the Treeherder / Perfherder frontend, fixing bugs in the performance sheriffing frontend, updating code to use more modern standards (including a gigantic patch to enable a bunch of eslint rules and fix the corresponding problems).

Roy worked all over the codebase, starting with some simple frontend fixes to Treeherder, moving on to fix a large number of nits in Perfherder’s alerts view. My personal favorite is the fact that we now paginate the list of alerts inside this view, which makes navigation waaaaay back into history possible:

Thank you Shruti and Roy! You’ve helped to make sure Firefox (and Servo!) performance remains top-notch.
