Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.
Best option for wireguard

VPS server unreachable within school network.
1 project | reddit.com/r/selfhosted | 29 Nov 2021
Probably an outbound firewall on the school network. Try hosting OpenVPN on port 443/tcp. You can set it up using PIVPN. I used to use this on public WiFi back when mobile data was more expensive and never had it blocked.

Check out PiVPN https://pivpn.io/. super duper easy. i set up a wireguard server on the same raspberry pi as my pi-hole. very speedy connection on my phone while out and about
Remote access to your node
1 project | reddit.com/r/ethstaker | 18 Nov 2021
Check out pivpn. Run Wireguard. Very simple way to set up secure VPN access to your node’s network. Make sure to port forward the Wireguard UDP port on your gateway/router. Once connected to your Wireguard VPN you can ssh to your node. That way you’re not opening up an ssh port to the public internet. For ssh you should also be disabling password authentication and direct root login over ssh. Plenty of good guides out there for securing ssh.
Is there any reason why I should keep using a reverse proxy after getting a VPN working? How annoying is using a VPN with self hosted file management apps?
1 project | reddit.com/r/unRAID | 18 Nov 2021
Although as far as hardware, you can get a Raspberry Pi kit for about $80 and install something like https://pivpn.io/. I think if anything it's easier to set up than reverse proxy and the cost is not much more than any other server hardware upgrade.
Restore from backup

Backup created in /home/pi/pivpnbackup/20211114-152422-pivpnwgbackup.tgz To restore the backup, follow instructions at: https://github.com/pivpn/pivpn/wiki/WireGuard#how-can-i-migrate-my-configs-to-another-pivpn-instance2 projects | reddit.com/r/pivpn | 14 Nov 2021
But that link does not work, it must have been changed. I can't find any instructions on the pivpn.io site. Does anyone have a working link?

Microsoft reduced Windows 11 update size by 40%

As for the second idea: I don't know the details of MSDelta, but updating references when the code moves is more clearly represented by a newer format Chrome has been using called Zucchini . Courgette does a complex process of disassembling (into several binary streams), aligning labels, and sending a patch of the disassembly, so the patcher has to do disassembly, patching, and reassembly. Zucchini does a more straightforward disassembly pass to note where the references are, and then patches them based on how it knows the code moved. Compared with Courgette, this involves less intermediate state so it's faster , the code is simpler, and because much more is implicit in the code motion the patches tend to be smaller.
That basic technique goes back at least to the TranslateAddress method in Exediff (1999) .
I've been meaning to write up an article on this stuff , Google doesn't seem interested in publicizing Zucchini themselves, maybe due to the patent kerfuffle around Courgette. Microsoft's document on delta compression  covers a lot of this ground.
 Some of this can be avoided, I made some changes to Courgette for a significant speed increase here: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=504624#c39
 I did write up a bug to consider this in Firefox, with patch size comparisons, but ultimately we didn't switch from the simple power of bsdiff: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1632374
 Their system can use info from the pre-linked objects and PDB symbol files for better alignment, I'd played around with seeding alignments like this in bsdiff and Zucchini but I don't recall it giving significant improvement. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/bb417345(...3 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 28 Oct 2021
Last I heard, Courgette is deprecated (and replaced by Zucchini) .

> I don't think there s a static linking going on there, else it would be impossible to use Electron for closed source software.
no, the closed source part can stay closed source but linking must be reallowed.
Just run "strings" on the code binary: you'll see symbols coming straight from Blink like this one: https://github.com/chromium/chromium/blob/72ceeed2ebcd505b8d...

Design patterns let you apply existing solutions to your code

And the list goes on, and on.
V8 was designed by the same engineers who built the Java Virtual Machine, and what techniques did they employ to build this massive piece of software that runs the modern web? Object oriented design, and design patterns.
It's very probable people designing modern web applications for the FAANGs are not particularly aware of design patterns, or even maybe that MVC is a design pattern even if they are using it. It's possible many design patterns aren't useful for the types of problems they are solving, or could complicate matters if they used them haphazardly.
I'm not saying this is the end all, be all, of software design. Or that "modern" functional takes on software design (most functional languages and ideas predate OOP) aren't perfectly valid, or successful. Or even that they couldn't solve many of these problems.
I'm just contesting any dogmatic rejection of what has actually been one of the most successful branches of software design.
