Fwd: Please accept our apology

Dear John Sokol,

We owe you a big apology for the intermittent service outages we experienced on September 10 that may have impacted your website, your email and other Go Daddy services.

We let you down and we know it. We take our responsibilities — and the trust you place in us — very seriously. I cannot express how sorry I am to those of you who were inconvenienced.

The service outage was due to a series of internal network events that corrupted router data tables. Once the issues were identified, we took corrective actions to restore services for our customers and We have implemented a series of immediate measures to fix the problem.

At no time was any sensitive customer information, including credit card data, passwords or names and addresses, compromised.

Throughout our history, we have provided 99.999% uptime in our DNS infrastructure. This is the level of performance we expect from ourselves. Monday, we fell short of these expectations. We have learned from this event and will use it to drive improvement in our services.

It's an honor to serve you. As always, please call us 24/7 at 480-505-8877 — anytime, for any reason.


Scott Wagner

1) There is no speaker for this month.

2) ACCU is sponsoring a C++/C++11 Track at Silicon Valley Code Camp on October
6th and 7th. Code Camp is a conference of free sessions on many technical
topics. For more information: <>

Details about the C++/C++11 track are still being finalized and *more tracks
are being added as we speak*, but here is what it looks like right now:

   9:45 Exception-Safe Coding in C++ Part I, Jon Kalb

   11:15 Exception-Safe Coding in C++ Part II, Jon Kalb

   1:45 Logic Paradigm for C++ Part I, Roshan Naik

   3:30 Logic Paradigm for C++ Part II, Roshan Naik

   1:45 Generic Programming in C++: A real-world example, Marshall Clow

   9:15 C++11: Rvalues, Move Semantics, and Perfect Forwarding, Jon Kalb

   10:45 C++11 Idioms, Sumant Tambe

   1:15 Threads and Shared Variables in C++11, Hans Boehm

   2:45 Windows 8 development with C++, Matt Harrington

   2:45 Introducing the Clang C++ Compiler, Chandler Carruth

The track description:

C++ is Hot!

Mobile and cloud technologies are re-energizing interest in the
uncompromising performance that C++ delivers and the new ISO/ANSI standard
(C++11) introduces features that allow programmers to achieve that
performance with ever greater expressiveness.

Join us as we discuss how to get the most out of Classic C++ and discover
the new features of C++11 that are being delivered now by the latest

Sessions in this track are being given by award winning presenters. We will
go beyond Procedural and Object-Oriented Paradigms to explore Generic
Programming and Logic Paradigms. We will teach you how to write code in both
Classic C++ and C++11 that you can be confident is performant, maintainable,
and 100% robust in the face of exceptions. We will cover new C++11 features,
including the new standard for threading and what Scott Meyer¹s calls ³the
marquee feature of C++11,² move semantics. We will also introduce you to
some powerful new tool sets, one from Microsoft and the other Open Source
(Clang), for use with both Classic C++ and C++11.


The ACCU meets monthly. Meetings are always open to the public and are
free of charge. To suggest topics and speakers please email Walter

cc_chd -- CHD Congestion Control Algorithm

New in FreeBSD 8.3 and 9.0 is a choice of TCP/IP congestion modules.

     CHD enhances the HD algorithm implemented in cc_hd(4) provides tol-       erance to non-congestion related packet loss and improvements to coexis-       tence with traditional loss-based TCP flows, especially when the bottle-       neck link is lightly multiplexed.         Like HD, the algorithm aims to keep network queuing delays below a par-       ticular threshold (queue_threshold) and decides to reduce the congestion       window (cwnd) probabilistically based on its estimate of the network       queuing delay.
