SAFE Network Dev Update - January 31, 2019

I don’t think that follows.

You Americans are so conservative.

Great update team! :clap:

Quick question. In what order will features of fleming be implemented? I imagine network upgrades will take priority over the others considering that all other components (i.e. node restarts, etc) could then be deployed without inturrupting subsequent testnets too much.

They could, but the number of viewers might drop

Our TV did not censor a cricketer being fully dacked during an interview and barring all waist down.

Anyhow I find the podcasts great and allows me to be doing other less meaningful tasks while listening (eg housework)

Thanks, @thc.

I don’t usually do video for a few reasons, but all current Crossroads podcasts post to youtube automatically with a logo screen at this channel link:

But as @Nigel says, Soundcloud is pretty easy to use as well, with feeds from both SAFE Crossroads and Technology & Choice:

Welcome @yogesh!

I love that the team geeks out over unexpected optimizations :slightly_smiling_face: I’m still anxiously awaiting the TPS tests after performance is up to Maidsafe’s standards!

When i read that i felt we’re close. Today’s update i get the sense its still far…too technical for me :rofl:

Its a bit like building a high rise building where there are many floors and as they get higher the lower floors can start having the cladding attached and then the windows. If you just hear about the cladding and windows then it sounds near completion, but if you look further then you see the higher floors still being concreted etc with some floors not even there yet. And of course then there is the fitting out inside still to be done.

Well SAFE sounds like its well into the process and some of the components are near completion while some are still being “concreted” (PARSEC) and some still to do (SAFEcoin)

I can so relate to that since i work in a construction company :rofl:

One major difference is the building has a completion and handover date. Not having that with the network makes us read and have our own interpretations. The building analogy is great. Love it.

Close but not that close but just around the corner.

Not always :slight_smile: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sagrada_Família

Yes the analogy does work, but maybe it works better if looking at a new type of building that has new groundbreaking features that have never been done previously.

Oh nooo…If the Sagrada is the benchmark then this is a lonng home stretch :rofl::rofl:

MS is indeed redefining the internet. Unfortunately with my lack of technical know how i cant see how much or how high is the building complete. :relaxed:

136 yrs and still not completed. Hope safenetwork beats that.

Some say software is never finished, only released (or abandoned).
Concerning the Sagrada Família: already consecrated (~=released) by the Pope and masses are taking place. Ps: such construction time periods were normal in the middle ages.

Quick question on Parsec. Are there any major known problems that there is no solution to at the moment? Or generally speaking, parsec does what is needed, it just needs to be quicker/optimised?

6 Likes

Yes, currently just more testing and optimisation, it works very well and does what it should :+1

Great update as always Maidsafe devs

@fergish I’m saving up to donate to you (:beers:) and your trusty musician for the next episode. Really love this 1 with dirvine and viv, I listened twice, gonna listen a third time because there is always hiding :gem:s inside there.

From Nov 22nd dev update:

Related Safe dev forum post.

Some layman questions: Will this mean that indices must be maintained to access the six different RDF triple patterns for each entry[1] and time-space trade off will that bring? Query complexity[2] vs say a native Triple store or graphDB[3]? Is a native RDF triple store (or Graph database[4]) overlay feasible for the Safe Network?

I found some other interesting related topics questioning how RDF and storage/query methods could be simplified for developers while doing a quick background research on this question, have posted to a new topic here.
