The story of the ping command

In the past two days, I have been studying some network problems of clusters. I have been looking around and found this article by accident. It is a story about this command written by the author of the ping command.

The essence of the ping command is to send a data packet that requires an echo, and judge the connectivity and delay with the remote host according to the time and quantity of the echo message received.

One night in December 1983, the author and his colleagues encountered a network failure, so he quickly wrote the first version of the ping program. Interestingly, before his program ran, his colleagues had already solved the network failure.

Since the working mechanism of ping is very similar to the echolocation mechanism in sonar, the program is named ping with the sound of sonar. You can listen to the sound of sonar in this video of station B

Afterwards, this program was integrated into BSD Unix, windows 95 / windows NT and other operating systems.

Ten years later, the author also received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the USENIX Association.

How to Calculate the Age of Koreans

South Korea recently announced the use of internationally accepted age calculation rules, abolishing the two age calculation methods that have been used in South Korea before.

All Koreans may be “younger” by 1 to 2 years.

There are two age methods that have been used in Korea before:

The first type: birth is 1 year old, and every time January 1st passes, one year will increase, so a person born on December 31st will be 2 years old on January 2nd.

The second type: birth is 0 years old, every January 1st, increase one year old.

To be honest, I don’t really believe this news, but after checking it, it seems to be true…

Edge browser may leak URLs you visit to Bing

Edge browser has a default open function called “Follow Creator”. The general function is that if you visit Youtube, Bilibili and other creator homepages, you can see a button called Follow. After clicking, Edge browses The browser will notify you when content from these creators is updated.

The question is, how does the Edge browser know whether the webpage you visit is the creator’s page and then show you the follow button? The way to achieve this is to send the URL you visit to an API of Bing.

This means that the Bing API knows all the URLs you have visited.

If you don’t need this feature, it is recommended to turn it off in the settings.
