A book I've been threatening to write for nearly two years now: Classification For Computer Science, Engineering, and Technology Materials

2018.01.09 19:29 NoMoreNicksLeft A book I've been threatening to write for nearly two years now: Classification For Computer Science, Engineering, and Technology Materials

Most of you here have heard me or someone else mention UDC before. It's a library classification scheme for how to arrange books on a shelf so people can find what they're looking for... but some of us have discovered that it works pretty nicely for files in a filesystem too.
If you haven't checked it out yet, do so (and msg one of us if you can't find the books that describe it).
However, it has its... I should be generous here, "imperfections". The vast majority of the subjects and topics that it covers are handled expertly, librarians clearly know many things about many fields of study. But there are a few that are just too novel or complicated (or both), and the UDC scheme doesn't organize them very well.
One of those is computer science and technology. That said, there's a curiosity here... UDC puts computer science into the 000s which are "General Works". I like this alot, it hints that computer science is more fundamental than any other, even mathematics and physics ends up in the 500s. Anyway, 004 is reserved for computer science, which is a moderately large chunk of real estate as well. But if you dig into the descriptions for the subcategories those are just awful. I consider it unusable. And unlike for law/legal, no one has yet published an alternative scheme. I hinted that I was going to do so about a year ago, and I thought you might all appreciate an update. So here it is.
I'll be detailing 004.7xx, which is the subcategory for technical standards. These might have been published as books (especially older standards), or just as papers or downloadable pdfs. In some cases, they're decades-old scans of typewritten manuscripts. These aren't always formally published either, some are leaked internal documents, or at most were privately distributed to partners designing compatible systems.
There are alot of these, as you can imagine. Easily tens of thousands of unique documents, probably more like hundreds of thousands or even millions. And they're important too, they help to keep our technological civilization functioning. So they deserve a full 10% of the numberspace.
Organizing them is tricky though. For one thing, while many come from so-called standards organization (IETF, ISO, etc), many important ones don't. The GIF file format, for instance, was published by Compuserve. A company that no longer even exists in any meaningful way. For another, some standards are cross-numbered... IEEE will assign it a number in its scheme, then ISO comes along and rubber-stamps it, and now it's an official standard from both.
Now if the big standards bodies are given part of the numberspace and we lump everything else into a "misc" subcategory, we're just shifting the problem elsewhere. Not to mention that many dissimilar topics will be lumped together... ISO handles everything from the size of cardboard boxes to software.
Given all these issues, there seems to be only one way to do this sensibly. The first subcategories for 004.7 should group standards of similar subjects together.
70x - Hardware 701 - Power supplies 702 - Mechanical specifications 703 - Interfaces & buses 704 - Network & radio 705 - Electronic components 706 - Processors 707 - Storage systems 708 - Audio hardware 71x - File formats 711 - Executable & shared object formats 712 - Image formats 713 - Audio formats 714 - Video formats 715 - Document formats 716 - Archive & compression formats 717 - 3d scene, model & shader formats 72x - OS facilities 720 - Character encodings 721 - Color spaces 722 - File systems 723 - Networking protocols 724 - Communication protocols (machine communication) 725 - Application protocols 004.725.9001.6120 - "XMPP/Jabber" 726 - Operating system environments 731 - Security 732 - Cryptography 733 - Blockchains 734 - Distributed hash tables 741 - RPC & services 742 - Programming languages 743 - Namespaces 799 - Engineering humor 
Now, if you want to keep things simple, you can stop here and no further subcategories are necessary. However, if you have many such files, you may want to tack on the the standards organization next. For instance, if you have many image format documents, using the standards organization next will make all of them sort by standards orgs within that folder. For that purpose, there is an auxiliary table of those. It's meant to be comprehensive (but still WIP), and as such it has some rather improbable items in the list (I dare anyone to find a standards document form the Bureau voor Normalisatie in Belgium!). As I've stated elsewhere, sometimes standards are published by multiple groups, it's up to your personal discretion which group to use when classifying your files.

This is an abbreviated listing, by the way. More on that later.
For most users of this system, this is where you'll stop making folders/directories. You may have a directory for "3006 - IEEE" but there will be no need for a "8023 Ethernet" within it. You'll probably still want files to sort in a predictable manner though... so the rest of this is more useful for the filename scheme itself.
004 - Computer science & technology 703 - Interfaces & buses 3018 - PCI SIG 704 - Network & radio 3006 - IEEE 710 - File formats xxxx - Electronic Arts 712 - Image formats xxxx - Compuserve Inc. 9002 - W3C 
The filename is going to have several obligatory components, and several optional components. The obligatory components are:
  • title of papestandard
  • revision (use date when unavailable, as much as needed to make it unique)
  • publication year
The optional components are:
  • ISBN (not always registered... IEEE papers seem to have these though)
  • authors/editors (not always credited)
  • human-recognizable acronym/abbreviation (gif is recognizable, but who knows what "graphic interchange format" is?)
  • the standards body itself, by name instead of aux table number
  • standards body number (removing punctuation when possible, improvisation permitted)
Keeping all this in mind, my recommended scheme is thus:
number - (abbrev) Title of standard (rev, YYYY) - Standards body; author; author.ext 
1 - (IFF) Standard for Interchange Format Files (r1985) - Electronic Arts.txt 1 - (GIF) Standard for Graphics Interchange Format (r1987) - CompuServe Inc.txt 2 - (GIF) Standard for Graphics Interchange Format (r1990) - CompuServe Inc.txt 8023 - Standard for Ethernet (r1983) - IEEE.pdf 
Note: I've started to remove trailing periods on names when they abut the dot for the file extension.
In these examples, putting the date next to the revision was redundant. But those standards with proper rev. numbers would look something like this:
1 - PCI Local Bus Specification (r3.0, 2004) - PCI SIG.pdf 
Now, for those of you that only keep a few such documents, this is pretty heavy weight. A Compuserve directory is overkill (the gif format may be one of the few standards they ever published). You might only have a dozen or so works on image file formats at all... why the subdirectories?
So instead, you'll have a flatter folder structure and move some of the elements into the filenames:
004 - Computer science & technology 703 - Interfaces & buses 3018.1 - PCI Local Bus Specification (r3.0, 2004) - PCI SIG.pdf 704 - Network & radio 3006.8023 - Standard for Ethernet (r1983) - IEEE.pdf 710 - File formats xxxx1 - (IFF) Standard for Interchange Format Files (r1985) - Electronic Arts.txt 712 - Image formats xxxx.1 - (GIF) Standard for Graphics Interchange Format (r1987) - CompuServe Inc.txt xxxx.2 - (GIF) Standard for Graphics Interchange Format (r1990) - CompuServe Inc.txt 9002 - (PNG) Portable Network Graphics Specification (r2) - W3C; Duce, David.pdf 


In the course of writing this, several deficiencies have become apparent.
  • Many IETF standards (RFCs) are nothing more than the registration of a particular mime-type for a particular file format which is already in widespread use. Do these belong in 743 (namespaces), or in a separate subcategory?
  • The distinction between application protocols and network protocols has always been fuzzy. Is RTP a networking protocol or application? Certainly applications make use of RTP, but on the other hand there's quite a bit of low-level stuff in there about managing traffic.
  • Are there any extant standards on video/display hardware? I've got NTSC and ATSC as standards orgs... maybe I need to allocate 709 for that.
Finally, compiling comprehensive lists of industry standards groups and singular businesses has been slow-going. I'm going to present the full lists (as yet unnumbered... listing these by their birth year, and if there are any missing in the middle I don't want to have to renumber everything) in comments, and if anyone would go over them and note whether there seem to be any obvious gaps, I would appreciate it. This is turning out to be one of the most effort intensive parts of coming up with this scheme (and if I ever finish this thing, free copies to everyone here in datacurator, of course).

2015.09.05 11:51 LoLz14 Hey r/nba, Eurobasket starts today!

Hi all, Eurobasket starts today. It is held in several different countries (only for group stages), those countries are Croatia, France, Germany and Latvia.
After that, the elimination games are held in France.
Here are power rankings of all the countries that are competing, courtesy of
I'll write just top 10 in here:
  1. France
  2. Serbia
  3. Croatia
  4. Spain
  5. Slovenia
  6. Italy
  7. Greece
  8. Lithuania
  9. Latvia
  10. Germany
IMO, Croatia is ranked too high, as well as Slovenia. I'd say that Spain is on 3rd spot, Greece in 4th, then Croatia, Italy, Slovenia and everything else. I'd maybe even put Slovenia lower and Lithuania higher. It seems that people always sleep on Lithuania.
Here are countries ordered by their groups:
  • Russia
  • Bosnia and Herzegovina
  • France
  • Finland
  • Poland
  • Israel
I think the clear favourite for winning this group is France, they will also have home court advantage. I'm not sure how other spots will play out because they are all pretty close. Russia is missing some of the better players but they're still very good. Poland, led by Gortat, might be able to make a statement. Finland showed on the last Eurobasket that they can indeed play the game of basketball, and Israel might push for 2nd spot in the group.
  • Iceland
  • Turkey
  • Germany
  • Italy
  • Spain
  • Serbia
This is the strongest group on the Eurobasket, by far. Spain and Serbia should be the best teams in the group though. They should come in 1st and 2nd.
Behind them will be a fight though. Germany, Italy and Turkey are all good teams and have NBA players on their squads. Italy is probably the strongest in last several years, same goes for Germany. Turkey is lacking some players but it still has a good bunch of players. It will be close and interesting to watch those games as only 4 teams advance to next round.
  • Croatia
  • Greece
  • Slovenia
  • Georgia
  • Netherlands
  • FYR Macedonia
Another solid group. I'd say that Greece or Croatia should compete for 1st spot in the group. Slovenia is good as well so the fight for the 1st spot will be close. After them there are Georgia and Macedonia whom I think will fight for 4th spot which leads to round of 16.
  • Estonia
  • Latvia
  • Lithuania
  • Czech Republic
  • Ukraine
  • Belgium
Fun fact: All three baltic countries are in the same group (Estonia, Lithuani and Latvia). Lithuania should be the favourite in this group. They don't have Motiejunas but they're still Lithuania, country that breathes basketball. After them, I 'd say that Czech Republic and Latvia could compete for 2nd spot, but all of the countries seem to be pretty close to me. It will be a fight for other 2nd, 3rd and 4th spot for sure.
So this was just a short intro to the Eurobasket. There are a lot of interesting players on the tournament that might go to NBA, or are just drafted and people might look out for them. These players are about 20 years old, most of them, or there are relatively unknown to NBA fans.
I'll write just some that I know of, feel free to write more:
  • Lithuania:
  • Domantas Sabonis, son of Arvydas Sabonis, plays for Gonzaga, only 19 years old
  • Croatia:
  • Dario Šarić, draftee by Philadelphia 76ers, playing his third year for national team already! 21 years old, currently plays for Anadolu Efes
  • Mario Hezonja, player for Orlando Magic, 20 years old.
  • Greece:
  • Giannis Antetokoump, Milwaukee Bucks, y'all know everything about him.
  • Turkey:
  • Cedi Osman, Anadolu Efes, drafted by Cleveland Cavs, 20 years old, athletic SF who can also shoot (plays kinda like Hezonja).
  • Furkan Korkmaz, Anadolu Efes, only 18 years old!! One of the best young players in Europe and could definitely be highly rated in future. Plays as a SG, and even though he is 18 (17 last season) he has already played in Euroleague and made solid appearances
  • there is another 20-year old player, but I don't know much of him, Kartal Özmizrak
  • Italy
  • Alessandro Gentile, he is 22 years old already, and was drafted last year by Wolves as 53rd pick but his rights are owned by Rockets. I don't know if he will go to NBA anytime soon, but he has been playing great basketball in Euroleague, and is key player of his team, Milano.
  • Spain
  • Guillermo Hernangómez, 21 year old center, who got drafted this year by New York Knicks. He was playing really well in Spanish league for Sevilla (was on same team with Kristaps "Kobe" Porzingis)
  • Poland
  • Przemyslaw Karnowski, plays for Gonzaga. 22 years old, big guy.
  • Serbia
  • Bogdan Bogdanovic, drafted by Phoenix last year IIRC. Plays for Fenerbahce and is 23 years old atm, one of the key players for Serbia
  • Nikola Milutinov, signed for Olympiacos in Greece this year. He was drafted by Spurs. But it will be interesting to see if they play him since they got Raduljica and former great Warrior Ognjen Kuzmic
  • There is also Nemanja Bjelica, but he isn't really young. he is 27 already, but is one of the best Euroleague players, he just got signed with Timberwolves as most of you know.
EDIT: OMG, I went to front page of nba and saw there is already one post about Eurobasket, I feel stupid now, since I spent half an hour or so writing this :D
EDIT2: You can follow all livescores from this page: Eurobasket

2015.01.06 21:26 best_wank Suddenly no online interaction at all.

I was spending the day getting constant pvp action in both Oolacile and Anor Londo, when suddenly (about 4-5 hours ago) not a single online interaction. I cannot see ghosts, messages, signs, nor can I invade or be invaded.
This roughly coincided with the game crashing when I interacted with a summon sign (why does this happen, it's happened several times), after which I got one match-up and then only silence.
Any idea what's going on here? I previously had my DL region set to Luxembourg, and I tried switching to Finland to no avail.

2014.12.23 05:38 ichivictus Summoning on PC?

Played PS3 version for about 500 hours worth. Trying to get into PC but I got to Anor Londo and felt like summoning someone for Drake and Josh. But there's no summon signs.
Level 51 I was, then I leveled one at a time while getting invaded a few times along the way. Now I'm 65 I think and still no summon signs.
I changed my region to Finland and that hasn't helped. Is summoning just not popular on the PC version?

2014.12.21 22:47 Zewbacca Tips for Darkwraith Invasions?

So I joined up with the Darkwraiths after beating the Four Kings, and i've been trying to invade with cracked red eye orbs. I'm at SL60 on PC, and i've tried invading at Dark Anor Londo, Duke's Archives, and the Forest Protector's Forest so far, but I've only had one successful invasion and I spent 20 minutes looking for the kid with no luck in the Archives. Anybody got tips to avoid that 'Invasion Failed' message?
I'm using Steamworks and my region is set to Finland atm, though I also tried US - New York.
