Go enjoy Python3
Given a string, get a truncated string of length up to 12. The task is ambiguous, as it doesn't say anything about whether or not 12 should include terminating null character or not. None the less, let's see how one would achieve this in various languages. ...

It is challenging to work in hundreds of ms, but it does pay off. Very very fast and furious VMs, shaped for container-like workloads without compromise on security. No legacy devices either and very minimal hypervisor attack surface without any firmware.
 
Lwn.net just published an article about what I've been working on.... clear containers, a way to make containers more secure.

If you have questions... I'm at the openstack summit this week....

YSA-2015-1, CVE-2015-3298 vulnerability in "javacardopenpgp" affects yubikey's openpgp applet. If you use gpg subkeys on the key, prepare to order replacement key & rotate the subkeys.
Yubico recently learned of a security issue with the OpenPGP Card applet project that is used in the YubiKey NEO. If you are not using OpenPGP, or have the OpenPGP applet version 1.0.10 or later, this vulnerability does not apply to … Continue reading →

Boiling frog, or when did we loose it with /etc ?
$ sudo find /etc -type f | wc -l 2794 Stateless When was the last time you looked at /etc and thought - "I honestly know what every single file in here is". Or for example had a thought "Each file in here is configuration changes that I made". Or for exampl...

+Florian Anderiasch sensible place to document options is in the man page - e.g. login.defs(5) sshd_config(5) and so on. Or e.g. ship distro default/sample config in alternative paths, e.g. /usr/share/defaults or /usr/share/doc/. Because precisely users like yourself should never be prompted for e.g. whitespace changes in the default configs for portions you did not touch. /etc is not where documentation should be stored.

So if a neural network can add citations in wikipedia article, comment & indent Linux C, add references and citations in LaTeX, I wonder if soon one will start getting review comments "this work is worse what I have seen out of neural network". When going through the process of becoming a Debian Developer, I was asked if I would want to change Debian Free Software Guidelines or when would they not apply. Standards, Generated data, and Neural Network models & output were things I gave as examples when DFSG is not applicable, or rather under-defined. Who has the copyright of that C source code? The neural network claimed it was Intel... Does copyright makes sense? Should it be declared free of licence, patents and copyright? Who took more time and resources to train some models and use it in production already?! We will ever know until only after it happened?!
 
This is wonderful; neural network setup producing wonderful results; one example is training it on wikipedia and it ends up producing valid XML pseudo articles.  Another is training it on Linux kernel source, and it ends up producing C code that looks appealingly complex until you try and figure it out (even with bogus comments).

More details on how such a pretty damn small /etc is implemented. This is part one, more to come.

Checkout https://clearlinux.org
 
One of the things we've been working towards within +Clear Linux Project for Intel Architecture  is having a stateless operating system. In essence, there should be no requirement for configuration files to litter /etc/ for a functional system.

Within our implementation, we've ensured that it is still possible to override the sane defaults provided with the software with a site configuration, in which case configuration files that are in /etc/ will then be respected.

A major upside to this is the ability to reset the system at will. To go back to the "factory state" - I can simply remove all of my custom files from /etc/ and reboot, and my installation goes back to exactly how it was when I started out.

We're also upstreaming and documenting this implementation, which will make life a lot easier for other projects who are also currently seeking to convert their systems into stateless ones.

Tomorrow will go down in history as the day you lose all your friends in the office.

Simple and contemporary interior design and laid back and welcoming attitude did not raise my expectations. But I can now say, I believe this is my best hair cut to date. Even people I stopped talking to years ago, liked my new profile pic on facebook. This salon is by far better than many "designer" and "professional stylists" salons.
