This Meatball Skillet Recipe Is All About the Cheesy Strings — Delicious Links

by Ariel Knutson
Pin it button big

Enchiladas, cheese-stuffed garlic bread, lasagna, and this meatball skillet – they all have one important thing in common: cheesy strings. You know what I'm talking about. You notice it most when you're scrolling around Pinterest and you see a gorgeous photo for a recipe where there's a fork pulling some of the food out of the dish, resulting in lots of gooey cheese strings. Beautiful, right?

Dam Curry Rice, A Fun and Functional Wall of Rice Holds Back Delicious Curry Sauce

by Rebecca Escamilla

Restaurants and cooks at homes in Japan are serving curry rice in a functional and eye-catching way: by building a wall of rice that acts as a dam holding back curry sauce. Not only does the architectural fare look adorable, but it keeps sauce from getting all over the plate and mixing into other foods.

A QUIC update on Google’s experimental transport

by Google Chrome Blog
Last year we announced QUIC, a UDP-based transport protocol for the modern Internet.  Over the last quarter, we’ve been increasing the amount of traffic to Google services that is served over QUIC and analyzing QUIC performance at scale. Results so far are positive, with the data showing that QUIC provides a real performance improvement over TCP thanks to QUIC's lower-latency connection establishment, improved congestion control, and better loss recovery.

For latency-sensitive services like web search, the largest gains come from zero-round-trip connection establishment. The standard way to do secure web browsing involves communicating over TCP + TLS, which requires 2 to 3 round trips with a server to establish a secure connection before the browser can request the actual web page. QUIC is designed so that if a client has talked to a given server before, it can can start sending data without any round trips, which makes web pages load faster. The data shows that 75% percent of connections can take advantage of QUIC’s zero-round-trip feature. Even on a well-optimized site like Google Search, where connections are often pre-established, we still see a 3% improvement in mean page load time with QUIC.

Another substantial gain for QUIC is improved congestion control and loss recovery. Packet sequence numbers are never reused when retransmitting a packet. This avoids ambiguity about which packets have been received and avoids dreaded retransmission timeouts. As a result, QUIC outshines TCP under poor network conditions, shaving a full second off the Google Search page load time for the slowest 1% of connections.   These benefits are even more apparent for video services like YouTube. Users report 30% fewer rebuffers when watching videos over QUIC. This means less time spent staring at the spinner and more time watching videos.

Where do we go from here? Today, roughly half of all requests from Chrome to Google servers are served over QUIC and we’re continuing to ramp up QUIC traffic, eventually making it the default transport from Google clients — both Chrome and mobile apps — to Google servers. We plan to formally propose QUIC to the IETF as an Internet standard but we have some housekeeping to do first, like changing the wire format and updating our reference implementation from SPDY-over-QUIC to HTTP2-over-QUIC. In the coming months, we also plan to work on lowering handshake overhead to allow better server-side scalability, improving forward error correction and congestion control, and adding support for multipath connections.   

If you want to follow along or play around, feel free to check out the code and experiment with it, or join as we continue to improve the Internet, one packet at a time.

I honestly didn't think you could even USE emoji in variable names. Or that there were so many different crying ones.

Sushi Bath Towel Concept by Jenny Pokryvailo

by Christopher Jobson




Designer Jenny Pokryvailo came up with this amusing concept for a series of towels that when properly folded resemble different types of maki rolls. You may previously recognize Pokryvailo’s design work from her wildly popular (and equally quirky) Nessie Ladle, Sardine Paper Clips, and Rainbow Marker Set. (via Laughing Squid)
