If you're like me, maybe you like Brocade certs like the BCNP and BCEFP.

The detection was hailed as a triumph for a controversial, exquisitely crafted, billion-dollar physics experiment and as confirmation of a key prediction of Albert Einstein's General Theory of Relativity.

Something, something lime in a coconut.

Then you uhh, deploy your containerized applications. Yea, pretty sure that's how it goes.

Make sure you protect yourself.
 
"It's a really obscure privacy feature, you've probably never heard of it."

Firefox has some built-in functionality that provides a lot of protections against third-party data collection, and does it in a way that's friendly to legit web sites.

For various reasons, some of the best stuff is buried in Preferences and "about:config".

Until now. 

Here is a Firefox add-on that

 * turns on Tracking Protection

 * makes the third-party cookie policy similar to the Apple Safari one.

Helpful for testing web sites, to make sure they're future-proof, too.

Part of the Docker container paradigm is that you may have to change your way of thinking and exactly how you manage your resources.

http://www.projectatomic.io/blog/2016/02/dont-run-yum-update-within-a-running-container/
Recently, I have been reviewing a massive collection of Dockerfiles and interacting with customers and ISVs alike. In this time, I have seen all sorts of actions being taken for container design and how those containers should be run. One such action I really struggle with is when users are either told or take the initiative themselves to update packages within a running container. For example, they execute something like: docker run -it foobar y...

Bash to Ansible, Getting Started

Ever wonder which modules are the "gateway drug" for Ansible automation?

( I received some feedback that the code snippets were difficult to read... they're properly formatted now and probably make more sense. Thanks! )

From Bash to ... Ansible?

I was talking with some guys in the Ansible community and recently changed a bunch of "environment prep" scripts for things like routes, vxlan, bridges, mounts and services from bash scripts into Ansible playbooks.

I thought ... wouldn't it be cool to take a small example from them and turn it into an "intro to Ansible (if you're a bash-ful kinda person)"?

Here it is. Save your rotten tomatoes until the end.

Story
Tagline
Expirement: Geexology; Expert-level Fred. Mostly cloud-like with a chance of devops.
Introduction
Senior Solutions Architect for Unitiv, Inc.  Also enjoying my own side project, a virtual network business, called Geexology.

It seems like I've always been a unix/network sysadmin, & an avid Linux advocate. Technology and goofiness for the long haul.

I'm posting about interesting stuff, art, electronics, cool maker projects, virtualization, open source, business, law, internet protocols and networking, security, cloud computing / IaaS, or just random funny or goofy things.  Like comic books and movies.

I love to keep my posts well-rounded because I appreciate my people and their interests.
