/proc/../as bigger than off64_t on Solarisview story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – How do I read or seek from a file that's bigger than the maximum off64_t?

It's really very big: on a sample process on Solaris x86-64, argv's address is 0xFFFFFD7FFFxxxxxx, that is, the very top of the address space is used. (HowTos)

Video Game Journalist Out Of A Job For Calling Out Dead-Eyed, Dorito-Hoarding Journalistsview story

http://techcrunch.com – In the great, wide world of journalism, games journalism is a weird animal. Those who “practice” – and practice it well – face a barrage of PR perks, free trips, and angry houses. Access is given and taken away by marketing folks on a whim. There are a few great news sources (Polygon is one as is Rock, Paper, Shotgun), a few silly ones, and a few horrible ones. (IT news)
