The laws of physics still apply to you whether or not you took a kickboxing class at the local Community College.

Been playing with #Docker and understanding this #12Factor apps thing...

Docker doesn't seem horrible, but getting Oracle XE on it, and making an easy to use windows environment...

there does seem to be some brain damage induced by the idea that apps should write to stdout for logging... last I checked writing to stdout could actually make things slower... and seems to have induced things like people having private keys written to an image in dockers binary repos... all in the name of log aggregation? last I checked most if not all syslog daemons can split and aggregate logs, and syslog bus? socket? is  already basically an event queue... 

not saying that's all docker or the purpose of 12 factor's fault, because I hope that's not their intent, but it is an outcome. Now waiting for people to sprinkle print statements for logging...

So, ignore the logging thing, use your logging facade to log, configure to syslog in prod, let your syslogger split/ship the logs. Use the every config thing is an environment variable sparingly (meaning not every config option should be). 

Trying to discern if #Vagrant with a manually built docker host vm is the right option for windows/os x/linux support, because it seems that boot2docker isn't a great option due to working differently on windows.

I was actually just motivated to post my first link to an article I've found very useful just now on how to manually build vagrant images. I realized that in our conversation you may have better luck manually building and configuring your own images.

"Every single empire in its official discourse has said that it is not like all the others, that its circumstances are special, that it has a mission to enlighten, civilize, bring order and democracy, and that it uses force only as a last resort. And, sadder still, there always is a chorus of willing intellectuals to say calming words about benign or altruistic empires, as if one shouldn't trust the evidence of one's eyes watching the destruction and the misery and death brought by the latest mission civilizatrice." Edward Said

The Lenovo Website's coming back, as the DNS records are restored, but many of you may still be in for quite a surprise if you head over to Lenovo at the moment..
Summary:Lenovo's Superfish debacle seems to have drawn the ire of the Lizard Squad hackers.
