Remember Gaurav, the Indian artist who made the Seetha Maruthe + Heaven fusion [1] much more than the sum of its parts?

[1] Seetha Maruthe / Heaven by Gaurav Dagaonkar (Synchronicity) OFFICIAL

He's done an original Sinhala song. Hope he keeps making more.

Someone has created a mindmap of the current state of Docker eco system. It makes me happy to see how far Docker has come in just about a year. Kudos to the team and community behind it.

For those who don't know what Docker is, it's an open source software built on top of Linux (using LXC, i.e., Linux Containers) making it easier to use OS-level, lightweight virtualization, sometimes known as containerization. The concept isn't new but the execution is making Docker a hot topic, specially among Cloud computing vendors, service providers, etc. - see http://docker.io

Resistance Creed

This is a few months old and you all may have seen it before. But felt like sharing here. 

Note: Creed adapted from the Rifleman's Creed (of US Marines) written by Major General William H. Rupertus during WW2.

True. Then again, so does the entity "God" in the original, General Rupertus version. :)

My Fedora 20 work environment

My desktop environment customization goes only as far as it makes me happy to  work in it. Which usually means just a distraction and clutter free, functional setup.

So this is what I ended up with after installing Heisenbug. It took a few minuted to do, but it looks pretty much like the default installation with a few look and feel tweaks. I really like the new window decoration which can save some screen real-estate (e.g., file browser window). However I thought the default Adwaita looks a little rough. So I'm using non-default GNOME Shell theme, GTK+ theme and border, all with minor tweaks to look Ok, plus an Icon theme.

Wallpaper: http://pointvision.deviantart.com/art/Dew-329370482
GNOME Shell theme: http://utivis.deviantart.com/art/NovaShell-GNOME-Shell-Theme-306994677
GTK 3.10 theme: http://satya164.deviantart.com/art/Evolve-GTK3-Theme-264780816
Window theme: http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/?content=145810
Icon theme: http://tiheum.deviantart.com/art/Faience-icon-theme-255099649
Vim setup: https://github.com/gaveen/gavim
UI font: DejaVu Sans (package name: dejavu-sans-fonts)
Monospace font: Inconsolata (package name: levien-inconsolata-fonts)
Font rendering related: (package name: freetype-freeworld)
My dotfiles: https://github.com/gaveen/dotfiles

Minor tweaks: GNOME Shell behavior and theme tweaked so that the huge bottom bar is shrunken to a decent size, and the font changed to DejaVu Sans. Window (border) theme tweaked so that the titlebar looks ok. Font rendering tweaked to look good.

3 more days to get #neovim to $30,000 stretch goal. It's already raised over $25,500. Next stretch goal is to make it embeddable.

Before anyone say, sorry for the (somewhat) off-topic post.

So, this happened yesterday. Took long enough. #Ingress   #L8 at 8.08PM o'clock (close enough) at Kelaniya Temple. :)

When I have my new blog running, I'll write a little more about the whole experience.

+Pratheep Kubendran thanks mate.
+Navod Ediriweera thank you machan.
+Ramindu Deshapriya thanks dude. Anbu is also contending for the record now. As I said in the COMM, the game is on. :D I will take consolation in the fact that I hold that record for now.

It'll be definitely interesting to see the upcoming SteamBoxes from different vendors. It kind of combines the best of both worlds. SteamBox controller seems to be pretty good too with the touch panels. One of the reviews shows the person playing Portal and it looks like Valve maybe onto a console controller that finally doesn't suck compared to mouse/keyboard setup.
