Ohio becomes the first state to accept bitcoin for tax payments


Starting Monday, businesses in Ohio will be able to pay their taxes in bitcoin — making the state that’s high in the middle and round on both ends the first in the nation to accept cryptocurrency officially. Companies who want to take part in the program simply need to go to [OhioCrypto.com](https://ohiocrypto.com/) and register to pay whatever taxes their corporate hearts desire in crypto. It could be anything from cigarette sales taxes to employee withholding taxes, [according to a report in *The Wall Street Journal*](https://www.wsj.com/articles/pay-taxes-with-bitcoin-ohio-says-sure-1543161720?mod=searchresults&page=1&pos=1), which first noted the initiative.

We are living in the future – it is just unevenly distributed with “an outstanding amount of hype and this anthropomorphization of what [AI]technology can actually provide for us,” observed Hilary Mason, general manager for machine learning at Cloudera, who led a keynote on “AI in the Real World: Today and Tomorrow,” at the recent [Open FinTech Forum](https://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/open-fintech-forum-2018/).

Compression options in MySQL (part 1)


![](https://tftsr.com/site/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/Dataset_size.png)Over the last year, I have been pursuing a part time hobby project exploring ways to squeeze as much data as possible in MySQL. As you will see, there are quite a few different ways. Of course things like compression ratio matters a lot but, other items like performance of inserts, selects and updates, along with the total amount of bytes written are also important. When you start combining all the possibilities, you end up with a large set of compression options and, of course, I am surely missing a ton. This project has been a great learning opportunity and I hope you’ll enjoy reading about my results. Given the volume of results, I’ll have to write a series of posts. This post is the first of the series... show more

MySQL InnoDB Cluster with 2 Data Centers for Disaster Recovery: howto


As you know, MySQL InnoDB Cluster is a High Availability solution for MySQL. However more and more people are trying to use it as a Disaster Recovery solution with 2 data centers. Natively, this is not **yet** supported. But it’s already possible to realize such setup if we agree with the following points: - a human interaction is required in case of Disaster Recovery which, by my own experience, is often acceptable - a human interaction is required if the any Primary-Master acting as asynchronous slave leaves its group (crash, network problem, …) or becomes secondary These are not big constraints and it’s relatively easily to deal with them. The Architecture ---------------- The situation is as follow: - 2 data centers (one active, one inactive, only used for disaster recovery) - 2 MySQL InnoDB Clusters (one in each DC) - 3 membe... show more
 
Exploring Summit: The newest intelligent supercomputer

In addition to traditional simulation workloads, Summit is well suited to analysis and AI/ML workloads – it is described as “the world’s first AI supercomputer”. The use of standard components and software makes it easy to port existing applications to Summit as well as develop new applications.

The Plan for 2010…

During the summer of 2008, while being frustrated by the design and configuration of the OpenVPN virtual private networking (VPN) project, and hearing constant complaints from others about their own continual annoyance and trouble with all existing VPN solutions, I began thinking about the need for a truly user-friendly, easy-to-use, and connectivity-robust private networking product to allow individuals and corporations to reliably connect back to “home base” anytime they are out and about.

During the balance of the year, as the outline of such a product began to take shape, I realized that no one had really yet done a VPN “right,” and that the GRC approach to bring a great deal of innovation to a VPN product. Early in 2009 I settled upon the name “CryptoLink... show more
 
2008 & 2009

How were the years 2008 and 2009 spent?

Those two years saw the development and near-completion of two major new GRC online facilities, and one significant piece of freeware. I say “near completion” because the second and third of those projects interrupted the completion of the one before them, resulting in three major “loose ends” that — even as I’m writing this in May 2010 — are still awaiting final completion and documentation before they see the light of day.

3rd-Party Cookie Alerts
The first project is a system to alert GRC’s visitors to their browsers being configured for the acceptance of 3rd-party cookies — i.e. Web browser cookies being planted by sites other than the ones you’re visiting. As our projects often do, it hu... show more
