An interesting bug - network-manager, glibc, dpkg-shlibdeps, systemd, and finally binutils
Not so long ago I went to effectively recompile NetworkManager and fix up minor bug in it. It built fine across all architectures, was considered to be installable etc. And I was expecting it to just migrate across. At the time, glibc was at 2.26 in artful-...

Should you be able to find software from any channel?

Imho snap find should support --channel= --edge --beta --candidate --stable, just like it does for the install command.

If you agree please mark yourself as affected on https://bugs.launchpad.net/snappy/+bug/1662962

DynamoDB - why store schema once, when you can store it in every row instead?

Shorting the key sizes from descriptive names down to single letters, gives me 70% more scan capacity per Read Unit. Granted my sample data size has very short documents, they are really just a key-value dictionary mapping of strings to numbers.

Swapfiles by default in Ubuntu
4MB RAM card By default, in Ubuntu, we usually create a swap partition. Back in the day of 4MB RAM cards this made total sense, as the ration of RAM to disk space, was still very low. Things have changed since. Server, desktop, embedded systems have migrate...

At one point I had Jabra sports Bluetooth headphones with radio, fitbit flex and my phone. I have run out of charging sockets at night. My radio cut off half way through my workout and I could take them off, as I had no pockets in my shorts. I missed the fitbit's charge me email and wore it for a week without tracking steps... Less charging is best. I use desktop more these days, wired headset, garmin vivofit tracker (1year watch coin battery), and only charge my phone. And yes, one does want to use own headphones and charge phone on the plane.
