Yay for I/O limits in +OpenVZ!
Yay to I/O limits!

Today we are releasing a somewhat small but very important OpenVZ feature: per-container disk I/O bandwidth and IOPS limiting.

OpenVZ is a great product. Glad to see that there are some great things to come as VZ gets merged into the mainstream kernel. 
Is OpenVZ obsoleted?

Many people do believe that OpenVZ is obsoleted, and when I ask why, three most popular answers are:

1. OpenVZ kernel is old and obsoleted, because it is based on 2.6.32, while everyone in 2013 runs 3.x.
2. LXC is the future, OpenVZ is the past.
3. OpenVZ is no longer developed, it was even removed from Debian Wheezy.

Let me try to address all these misconceptions, one by one...

If it wasn't so expensive I would get one too and put some Fedora 18 on it!
Toys, toys, toys..

Hey, I've joined all the cool kids in having one of the new Google "Pixel" laptops (aka Chromebooks).  And it is a beautiful screen, to the point where I suspect I'll make this my primary laptop. I tend to like my laptops slightly smaller, but I think I can lug around this 1.5kg monster despite feeling fairly strongly that a laptop should weigh 1kg or less.

Because the screen really is that nice.

And I really appreciate not just the pixels, but the form factor. I despise widescreen displays, but I had gotten resigned to them. Until now. 3:2, baby!

I don't understand why people complain about "black bars", when I can't see why it would be any different to have "no pixels at all", which is what the silly widescreen displays do. 

I'm still running ChromeOS on this thing, which is good enough for testing out some of my normal work habits (ie reading and writing email), but I expect to install a real distro on this soon enough. For a laptop to be useful to me, I need to not just read and write email, I need to be able to do compiles, have my own git repositories etc..

Side note: I also have the Nexus 10, which also has tons of pixels, but on that one I didn't get the feeling that I could use the pixels very well... Sure, I could run a web browser and make the text smaller, but without a keyboard I can't reasonably write anything, and without the option of installing a full Linux distro I couldn't see it replacing my laptop anyway, so getting a BT keyboard didn't seem all that relevant either. 

One thing that the Chromebook Pixel really brings home is how crap normal laptops have become. Why do PC manufacturers even bother any more? No wonder the PC business isn't doing well, when they stick to just churning out more crappy stuff and think that "full HD" (aka 1080p) is somehow the epitome of greatness.

Looked outside when I woke up this morning and I found this Hyde Park squirrel teaching a rug on my deck not to mess with the South Side of Chicago.

When you need that fresh, free, GNU clean feeling people trust #Linux
We thought #Linux was free, but it looks like we were wrong.

A shot from the bleachers in Fenway Park last night after a solid 2012 #Hostingcon in Boston.  Good times, great company and cold beer.  It was fun to watch the White Sox get rolled hard.
