    Now that is funny! I remember when the 3.5" floppy disks came out...they weren't "floppy" like the 5.25. I had a difficult time understanding that! And yes, every time I look at that "save" icon I think of the 3.5 floppy that's not floppy!

    "SWIFT relies on outdated technologies that cause values to transfer slower than the Encyclopedia Britannica across the web using a 14.4k modem."
    Sighhh...I remember mentoring a high school student a few years ago who didn't know what dial-up internet was. I think I blew his mind again a few months later when I explained what the little floppy disk "Save" icon was supposed to represent.

    One of the classic recepies that get forwarded by mail over and over again to me is the following. It's usually in Dutch, but somebody has translated it:
    Get yourself a duck of about 1.5 to 2kg, and two large bottles of Scottish whisky, bacon strips and a bottle of olive oil.
    Put the bacon around the duck, and treat the inside with pepper and salt.
    Preheat the oven for 10 minutes at 180 degrees Celcius.
    Fill a large glass with whisky.
    Drink the whisky while the oven is preheating.
    Put the duck on a fireproof platter and fill out a second glass of whisky.
    Drink out the second glass of whisky and put the duck in the oven.
    After 20 minutes, put the oven to 200 degrees celsius and vill 2 glazzes of whisky.
    Drink out the glazzes and pick ub the piecez of the first glazz
    Fill anozzer half glazz and drinkit.
    After halven our, open the ovven to cheq the duck.
    Fetch the burninjury oindmend in the bathrthroom and pud it on the ubber zide of the lef thand.
    Vill anozzer two glazzez of whiskey.
    Open the ovven after the first glazz izz embdy and biggub the bladder.
    Pud the oindmend on the inner zide o the righdhand.

    RiverSong got a reaction from Zareh in Zerpify a clover!   
    Hey everyone,
    In honor of St. Patrick's day, I wanted to share a little side project I've been pondering for a while: Zerpify your own clover!
    By using a conversion such as (A = 00, T = 01, C = 10, G = 11) you can convert your secret key from an alphanumeric string to binary to DNA. You can then take this DNA sequence to the nearest university and with a sufficient degree of bribery (or asking nicely) convince someone to clone it into an Agrobacterium vector and incubate a clover flower or cutting in the bacterial solution.
    The result? Integration of your secret key somewhere into the clover's genome!
    Every time your clover plant propagates, each cell will contain a copy of your secret key. Even if the plant were to succumb to drought/radiation/rabbit attack, there would still be a decent window of time to recover DNA from a few leaves or roots. In fact, because the sequence is so short (<120 base pairs) you'd have a fairly decent chance of recovering the DNA sequence with minimal to no degradation. As an added bonus, the size of the genome (Trifolium repens has 10^9 base pairs, about a third the size of the human genome) imposes an extra layer of biological encryption. Only you and your new scientist friend will know the upstream primer sequence and proper reading frame to "decrypt" (find) the secret key, and only you will know the correct DNA -> ASCII conversion. If you're the paranoid type, replace the first "s" of your secret key with any other ASCII character to protect against brute-force attack.
    Now granted, the individual plants are still relatively easily killed. But because they propagate, they can be readily stored in multiple locations including pressed inside books at your friends' houses, or preserved in amber (à la Jurassic Park) and kept in a ring or necklace. It's a bit like the philosophy of blockchain distributing a public ledger across multiple potentially vulnerable computers, rather than a single fortified database.
    Of course the lazy single-person way to do this would be to order the DNA sequence (~$100 USD* plus shipping and handling), reconstitute in distilled water, brush onto clover, let air dry, and press into a book/preserve in amber. You won't have genome integration, but anyone sequencing the leaf will also sequence the DNA that's dried on its surface.
    ...or you can just soak a clover in blue food coloring like I did below.

If you wish to shorten your binary sequence by using a method other than ASCII encoding, you can drive the price down further. And no, unfortunately that's not the same IDT that's partnered with Ripple.

    Ripple has indicated that 2018 is the "Year of XRP Decentralization."  In my latest blog, I talk about the history of decentralization, how it's measured or evaluated within crypto, and the concrete steps Ripple is taking to further this aspect of the XRP Ledger.  
    I discuss Ripple's next steps for 2018 when it comes to decentralization, as well as what their goal is at the end of this process.  For those that have been curious, or have heard FUD on other forums about XRP's decentralization levels, this is the blog for you!

    Over the last few days I created a websites, a visualization, depicting transactions on the Ripple Network in real-time. You can find it here:
    http://alivingledger.com/
    The site's title is A LIVING LEDGER. It uses the Data v2 API to poll the latest transactions and updates it accodingly. 
    Because of the real-time character the shown activity depends on the actual network usage and can therefore be very active but also a little boring
    Every time you refresh the page, the visualization starts over.
    Next steps:
    Move away from the current Graph Framework (d3.js) which is pain and quite inconvinient for me as a full-time functional programmer Set up an own rippled-node for more convenient streaming and gain more control over data, instead of using the data-api Add capabilities to create awesome & individual desktop wallpapers of the current visualization Add different color themes Add a print service so that you can offer your own personal cool ledger print If you have any suggestions, comments or critique, feel free to post it.

    RiverSong reacted to Hodor in XRP Momentum Building: JoelKatz’s AMA and xRapid Adoption News   
    The momentum behind XRP and Ripple has quickly built into the size of a freight train.  I make a good-faith attempt to cover all the news items of the last seven days, including The AMA (Ask Me Anything) session that David Schwartz held on Reddit.  
    The other news items are extensive as well, including updates to xRapid customers, general Ripple technology adoption, and community updates.  In addition, throw in two interviews with Ripple executives and you have a very busy week indeed.  
    Hope you enjoy the read - please leave any feedback below.  Also, feel free to share my blog with a friend or family member, or share it on any other forum or platform - and thank you for doing so!
