Some surprisingly good Saudi humor about nice Muslim boys just wanting to fit in.

I am considering building a desktop Linux setup using LXD containers for application separation and sandboxing. Now just where to find the time....
 
And, for certain use cases, they have the numbers to back it up.
Canonical, Ubuntu Linux's parent company, claims its container-based hypervisor LXD is much better than KVM, Linux's built-in virtual machine hypervisor.

I like that there are now so many choices LXD/Docker/Rocket, etc. You can tell me your progress in a couple of weeks when I drop in to HQ to say "hi". :-)

Found this in my Apache logs today. Time to block some more idiots.

Once in a great while I see a novel piece of malware. Novel in the sense that it is particularly stupid in its behavior and tells us the author is an egotistical asshole. This week it is malware written by someone who can't resist announcing in big bold letters that they are up to no good.

Summon your inner dwarf for this one, folks.
 
Doesn't matter how many times I've listened to it - still picks me right up every time.  My people.

If you want an Android phone, choose one of these. The rest are too old and/or not properly supported.
Lollipop was released back in October of 2014, and it's now running on 9.7% of Android devices according to the May 2015 distribution numbers. Finding the phones in that 10% can be a bit of a challenge, though, so we're going to make it easy for you. This is going to be a regularly updated list where we will keep a running tab of which devices are running Lollipop. This list will only...

Thought for the day.

"God either wants to eliminate bad things and cannot, or can but does not want to, or neither wishes to nor can, or both wants to and can. If he wants to and cannot, then he is weak – and this does not apply to god. If he can but does not want to, then he is spiteful – which is equally foreign to god's nature. If he neither wants to nor can, he is both weak and spiteful, and so not a god. If he wants to and can, which is the only thing fitting for a god, where then do bad things come from? Or why does he not eliminate them?"

—Lactantius, De Ira Deorum

Some good low-level details about the "Let's Encrypt" initiative.
Let’s Encrypt is a free, automated, and open certificate authority brought to you by the Internet Security Research Group (ISRG). ISRG is a California public benefit corporation, and is recognized by the IRS as a tax-exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

Facebook finalizing plans to become the new AOL. Expect Facebook 3.2" floppies to show up in your mailbox any day.
Mike Elgan originally shared to Technology:
 
How Facebook is building the website to end all websites and the app to end all apps.

(Read my column: http://goo.gl/qTwVVf )

It's becoming clear that Facebook is systematically taking activities that people do outside Facebook and bringing them into the social network.

Soon, the vast majority of Facebook users will have no reason to ever leave the social network. 

Facebook is becoming a second Internet.

What this guy fails to understand is that most people wouldn't even notice, and fewer even care, if most content sites disappeared because of their abuse of online ads that ruin the reading experience. Be sure to follow the link with your ad blocker on.
As an editor, I feel resentful of people who enjoy my work but proudly run an ablocker to starve my content of revenue. Now the Financial Times reports that European mobile networks ...
