Prefetch Cache

Drupal Modules - Thu, 07/02/2015 - 09:51

The page caches provided by the drupal core or by different reverse proxies or by browsers themselves are not suitable for pages like entity edit forms. In case you expect the user to load a form in the next step of her work flow, you might consider a kind of proprietary browser driven link prefetching mechanism of that page. Especially if it takes a long time to load because it requires complex database queries or fetches data from external resources.

Australian postcodes

Drupal Modules - Thu, 07/02/2015 - 07:55

This module creates entities for Australian postcodes.
It does this by importing from a csv file that is included in the module.

NOTE: The included csv file is quite old (2011 I think, back when it was free). A more recent version can be purchased from http://auspost.com.au/business-solutions/postcode-data.html though I have not seen the format of the newer version so can not be sure it is in the same format.

Chicago taxes cloud and streaming services

InfoWorld - Thu, 07/02/2015 - 07:49

The City of Chicago has implemented sweeping new tax regulations that target the use of streaming and cloud computing services, the law firm ReedSmith says.

In a blog post, attorneys at the firm describe two new tax laws that take effect as of July 1, 2015. One is an expansion of the city's Amusement Tax, which levies a 9 percent tax on the subscription cost of electronically delivered services. This will apply to streaming music, movie, and television services like Netflix and Amazon Prime.

A look at California's effort to build an H-1B firewall

InfoWorld - Thu, 07/02/2015 - 07:36

California lawmakers are considering a bill that would make it difficult for state-regulated utilities to replace U.S. workers with H-1B workers. It may be one of the most significant anti-offshoring measures in years.

In the absence of federal action, states have long tried to put the brakes on the shift of jobs to offshore. Legislative efforts began in earnest with the burst of the dotcom bubble in 2001. Many state bills were never adopted, but that hasn't stopped some from trying.

In New Jersey, for instance, lawmakers in 2012 approved legislation intended to impede call center outsourcing. The Communication Workers of America, which spurred the effort, said that it had represented about 3,000 New Jersey call center workers in 2002, but by 2012, that figure had fallen to 725.

Windows 10 Wi-Fi password-sharing feature raises security concerns

InfoWorld - Thu, 07/02/2015 - 07:22

With the launch of Windows 10, anyone who walks into your house and gets your Wi-Fi password for their PC could potentially let all their friends onto your network, thanks to a new feature that has ignited controversy online.

Called Wi-Fi Sense, the feature is designed to make it easier for people to get Internet access for their devices while they're on the go by automatically logging them into wireless hotspots. It does so with a two-pronged approach: by logging users into select open networks and also by allowing them to share secured connections with their friends (and vice versa). Perhaps unsurprisingly, that has drawn the ire of people who care about wireless security.
