In five years, 80% of the entire world's Internet consumption will be online video. #bandwidth
This one crazy statistic explains everything about the Internet industry.

How would you like HawkEye-Avenger-Like vision?
 
Could Better Than 20/20 Vision Be In Your Future?

A Canadian optometrist has supposedly invented a lens replacement that is simple to install and will give the user vision that is 3-times better than 20/20 vision for life. According to the article:

According to Ocumetics’ website, the Bionic Lens is implanted in your eye during an eight-minute “painless procedure.” The operation is reportedly similar to cataract surgery, where the lens inside your eye is removed and replaced with an artificial lens. It’s an outpatient procedure that doesn’t require any anesthesia or an overnight stay.

The bionic lens is actually folded like a taco and placed in the eye using a syringe filled with a saline solution. Then, in about 10 seconds, the bionic lens unravels over your eye by itself and your sight is “immediately corrected.”

The implant may be ready for clinical trials as soon as 2017. Would you submit to such a new procedure?

Gotta love Reddit for when you need a casual conversation about the differences between F5 and A10.

That moment when you realize you can put Docker inside of LXD inside a KVM (or other hypervisor) guest, and on bare metal.

If you or someone you know, would like to speak at the UbuCon track for SELF (SouthEast LinuxFest) this year, get in touch with me ASAP.  I know the organizers of the event, and this year it's in Charlotte, NC.  It's a great event and I've attended a few times.  The date is June 12th so act fast if you're interested!

Need to Split a PDF?

I've been working quite a bit with PDFs lately with a few projects I have going on.  I had a 63 page PDF and I only wanted a range like pages 6-23.  Have you ever been in this position?  

This quick cool hacky solution works in any OS, so I can perform it in Win or Linux. 

1 - Open Chrome and go to file:///path/to/file/document.pdf
2 - Tell it to Print but change the option as "Save as PDF"
3 - Make sure you tell it which range of pages you want, or a single page like in the picture below
4 - When the file window opens, save your new sliced and diced PDF as a different name!

Wha?  I've seen this actor in a few things.  He was in the TV show Parenthood and the movie Chronicle. I think he'd make an excellent Johnny Storm.  Some people gotta get their heads out of their butts.

When this film comes out this summer, I'll watch it a bunch of times, just for those trolls.

When it comes to the movies, sometimes they suffer too many reboots... Call it Spiderman Syndrome. But I think this one is due. I counted Days of Future Past as a win for Fox, they could use some more.
