Tricksy weather! All the lovely sunshine from this morning tempting me to leave my jersey at home, and now I rue it. Rue it, I say!

How the Ebola Outbreak Is Exploited for Commercial Gain - NationalJournal.com

"The most persistent false claim is Nano silver, a disinfectant usually used in swimming pools, which is being promoted as a 'cure' ... even down to bogus claims that it is being used in treatment," Margaret Harris, the World Health Organization's spokeswoman in Sierra Leone, wrote in an email. Other false claims include drinking salt water; "holy water" that was being pushed by a Christian cult in Kenema; and fake chlorine that is an incorrect strength or not chlorine at all, she said.

This has been bugging me ever since I started playing with Docker. I love the concept, but I hate the naïveté of the community and what's currently considered "good practice". This will surely improve over time, but for now I build my own images from scratch and make sure I know what's going on inside them.
 
Money quote:
»Docker is the new 'curl | sudo bash'«

I am sure, trillions of people will tell me that it would be perfectly ok to work like this, and that I was an old guy not adapting to the modern world - building from scratch, who needs that anyway.


Via +Benny Siegert , +Todd Underwood 
None of these "fancy" tools still builds by a traditional make command. Every tool has to come up with their own, incomptaible, and non-portable "method of the day" of building. And since nobody is still able to compile things from scratch, everybody just downloads precompiled binaries from ...

Wow, that's even worse than I imagined. 

I was considering letting my weenieware.* domains expire, but I think now I might use them to host Docker images tainted in amusing ways...

"The scientific community is losing this battle. If you need visual confirmation of that, try a Google Images search for the term [G.M.O.] Scary pictures proliferate, from an archetypal evil scientist injecting tomatoes with a syringe — an utterly inaccurate representation of the real process of genetic engineering — to tumor-riddled rats and ghoulish chimeras like fish-apples."
We can’t deny the science: Biotech works — for good.

Last day to register to vote. Come on, pull your finger out.
Use this service to: register to vote; update your name, address or other details on the electoral register. You need to be on the electoral register to vote in elections and referendums. Registering takes around 5 minutes. You'll need your National Insurance number (if you have one).

Leaving the office while the sun's still out for a change. Loving the challenges, hard work and long hours, but this feels good.

Lovely morning in London. Except for the horrific wind, of course.

Great café that caters to people who want to get a coffee and get some work done. Lots of seats and power points, and the downstairs area is dedicated to people wanting an informal meeting space.

Very good. Small cosy interior that can get packed after work, but a great selection of beers and moderately-volumed music makes it worth it.

This is a lovely little French restaurant aimed squarely at theatregoers but with good food and decent set menus. Seems to be a family run affair, from the handcrafted menus to muralled walls.

Lovely riverside pub, with a nice view and constant water noise from the weir just next to it. Prices are slightly high, on par with London gastropubs, but the quality of the food is good. Beer selection is above average. Their kitchen was completely overwhelmed by the number of orders and there were only two people working the bar, but I'm putting this down to unexpected good weather this early in the year.

This London icon lives up to all the hype. We went there for an anniversary dinner and it completely lived up to our higher-than-usual expectations. My only complaint would be that the waitstaff could be more attentive for such a quiet evening, but we weren't in a rush and savouring the surroundings and experience instead.

Always an interesting selection of ales, beers and ciders. Mondays are usually half-price cask ales, which shouldn't be missed. Prices are reasonable considering these are higher-end. Music has been consistently good, and never so loud you cannot have a conversation.
