If you want to get really scared about Docker, this is an excellent way to start.

Some gems:

- Asking "package managers suck. What's a better way?" — and then of course failing to give an answer.
- "Wouldn't it be nice if we could use git to manage an entire server or desktop?" — sure! How about CVS too?
- "How do you create a distribution from scratch? (0) Create a directory that represents the new root directory (ie, "/"); (1) Move all the right files there, either manually, or with a tool like debootstrap, pacstrap, yum, etc.) (2) Tar your directory and ship it" — yeah! it's just that easy!
- "Docker has a healthy ecosystem (the container equivalent of "package support")" — I'd laugh if it weren't so sad.

Oh man...
 
Some common questions. What is Docker? Do I really need it? How does Docker actually work? How can I set up a single dev environment to work on any computer? My code works on my computer. Now how do I put it on a production server? Can't I just write code and have it "just work" everywhere?

+Nils Magnus Docker ist ein Tool mit komplettem Dev-Fokus. Und für Entwickler ist es das beste seit geschnitten Brot.

Es berücksichtigt keine Bedürfnisse aus dem Bereich Operations, und keine Bedürfnisse aus dem Bereich Enterprise Horizontal Requirements.

Das ist auch in etwa das, was +Florian Haas da sagt, und da hat er meiner Erfahrung nach komplett Recht.

Most underrated bit of awesomeness to come out of +Ubuntu? cloud-init. Underdocumented too, which is why most people probably don't use it to its full potential, but holy crap there's some hidden gems in there that make it ridiculously useful.

Underdocumented is an understatement... (all pun intended).

How's that +Adolfo Brandes​​?

(Note: as applied to me, the description is unbecomingly flattering.)
You are a euphoric type. You touch others with your humour, laughter and love. You radiate bliss and that is highly contagious. Your vitality flows through you and all who are lucky enough to know you. When one thinks of you, they automatically have to smile.

Well played, congregation, well played.

After centuries of legal scholarship, American courts still can't decide what religion is. But they kind of have an idea.

So there's pip install, and there's gem install.

Both have a preferred way of being converted into a Debian package.

Now guess which one works out of the box, and which one doesn't.

And if you actually think the Ruby thing Just Works™, go give your therapist a call; you probably haven't spoken with them since Monday or so.

Spot the problem:

# rbd  -p libvirt info test
rbd image 'test':
size 4096 MB in 1024 objects
order 22 (4096 kB objects)
block_name_prefix: rbd_data.1135515f007c
format: 2
features: layering, striping
stripe unit: 1 bytes
stripe count: 4194304

Our friends at +Anchor Hosting actually fixed this one upstream. Apparently, no-one in the +Ubuntu camp has as yet backported the fix to trusty yet, though.

If you follow +Veritasium just for the cool science bits, then this video is maybe too much on the philosophical side for you. But starting at 4:38 Derek succinctly describes my beef with school. Almost any school.

From the perspective of a school "Control" is important in being able to teach en masse, rather than the ideal of personalised tutoring. And yes, I think that far too often they end up wielding control for control's sake, to the detriment of the pupils and the whole system.

Started this over the weekend. This book is full of enthusiasm, determination, humor — and humility. Favorite quote from the intro:

"A lot of people who meet us remark that it can't be easy being married to a highly driven, take-charge overachiever who views moving house as a sport, and I have to confess that it is not — being married to Helene has at times been difficult for me."

I've been following Smarter Every Day for quite a while and I really like Destin's videos (with the notable exception of his gun nuttery).

Here, there are no guns involved, and this video is bloody awesome.

fatal: => template error while templating string: unexpected char u'a' at 36

Ansible's way of saying "I don't like that hyphen in that variable name".

(I really want to like systemd, the bootup time is excellent but there are some things in systemd that makes it very, very hard to do so...)

Delicious Eggs Benedict, quite literally buried under a pile of crispy bacon. Pure breakfast hedonism.

In Europe, the immediate vicinity of a central train station is normally not where you'd expect a spacious, classy café with lofty interior and a delightfully relaxed vibe. This place is all that, plus a bakery, plus it plays excellently selected baroque and classical music at perfect volume.

Wonderful, no-frills rib place in Atlanta. Deliciously fragrant smoke wafting through the parking lot as you stand in line and chat with your fellow rib lovers (totally worth the wait). Juicy, savory, awesome ribs that fall off the bone. All-around excellent.

This place almost looks shady from the outside, but don't let that discourage you — the chock-full parking lot will give away that this is a restaurant well worth visiting. Delightful appetizers, fantastic Southern Fried Chicken (in very sizeable portions, consider splitting one between two people or taking some home with you), excellent desserts and a nice selection of beers, wines and cocktails. All served family style in 60s decor combined with attentive, professional and enthusiastically friendly service.

Ganz hervorragendes Restaurant, das klassische Landgasthof-Küche mit einem sehr angenehmen Schuss Kreativität verfeinert. Spezialitäten aus der pannonischen Küche sind ebenso auf der Karte vorhanden wie eine schöne Selektion an Fischgerichten und auch eine sehr durchdachte vegetarische Auswahl. Preise moderat, daher ausgezeichnetes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis. Angenehmes, helles Interieur und freundliche Bedienung.
