So... I I run a "herd" of machines and use OVS with VXLAN for communication on-site and between sites, with a custom SDN, will it still work ?
Docker, the 800-pound gorilla of container technology, has recently added a new and very important trick to its magic act: Orchestration. For musicians, orchestration means writing music for a particular musical group. For those us in IT, orchestration is the automated installation, ...

Somewhat (way more than somewhat) old but, worth it !

Writing in centuries past, many scientists felt compelled to wax poetic about cosmic mysteries and God's handiwork. Perhaps one should not be surprised at this: most scientists back then, as well as many scientists today, identify themselves as spiritually devout.

Conclusion ?
Never, ever, go "so public" (loose the controlling stock share) as to be "played" by the rest of the stockholders.
(Zuckerberg was right...) If you're not sure, read some ancient posts of mine...
Yahoo has formed a strategic committee, made up of its independent board members, to reach out to interested parties in transacting a deal as the company faces greater pressure from activist shareholder Starboard Value to sell its core assets.

Here we go... I said brexit would initiate the end of the United Kingdom. I was more thinking about integrity of the country with Scotland and Northern Ireland breaking apart. But I wouldn't have thought that the political, economic and financial situation would degrade so dramatically in such a short period of time.

It is amazing to see the immense damage populist politics can produce and how fast that happens. The case of the UK, where the initiators of that disaster immediately jumped of the ship in perdition is unprecedented as well and can be considered as a despicable act of trahison to the interests of the own country.

It is also very instructing to say what can happen to a country when it decides to turn away from the world power it used to belong to.
It is just unbelievable...

France and Britain were vying for fifth place on the list of the world's biggest economies on Wednesday, with France nudging ahead after a renewed slump in the pound in the wake of the Brexit vote, Reuters calculations showed.

“The common people don't want war… but it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship.... That is easy.

Ian was only 42 !!!
Sad day, indeed... RIP, Ian.
 
I am saddened beyond words to hear of the death of Ian Murdock. Ian was the founder of Debian and the first secretary of the Open Source Initiative, among many other things. I got to know him when we both worked at Sun Microsystems and found him a brilliant man, capable of insight and charm.

Many of us were exceptionally concerned by his tweets on Monday reporting he had been brutalised by the police and saying his career was ruined. I am sure there is much to learn and tell, but the post by his current employer (Docker) rightly asks that we respect his family's grief  so I suggest avoiding speculation here.

Goodbye, brilliant friend.
Dear friends and members of the open source community, It is with great sadness that we inform you that Ian Murdock passed away on Monday night. This is a tragic loss for his family, for the Docker…

Specialization is for insects. Robert A. Heinlein, "Time Enough for Love": - - - - A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.
