Tech News

  • Not even June and temperatures were already in the low single digits in Sydney overnight.  Brrr.

  • Is Docker the new Hadoop?  (Smash Company)

    Well, eh.  You can get Docker up and running in five minutes on a $5 virtual server.  On the other hand, all the noise around Docker is created by the 0.01% of companies that need it at scale, just as with Hadoop.

    Docker does work out of the box as the world's least efficient package manager.

  • On the third hand...  (Bleeping Computer)

    Don't expose your Docker or LXD APIs to the public internet.  You idiot.

  • RAM prices are going down, finally, and there's also little difference in pricing up to DDR4-3600.  (ExtremeTech)

    Time to finally upgrade Tohru and Rally.

  • Flipboard got hacked.  (Tech Crunch)

    The hack got encrypted passwords including some old ones hashed using SHA-1, and authentication tokens for Facebook, Google, and Samsung.  Best bet is to delete everything and never use the internet ever again.

  • And that goes double for Wordpress.  (BleepingComputer)

  • The launch video for Microsoft's new WSL terminal app got yanked from YouTube for copyright violation.  (Bleeping Computer)

    The claim relates to music used in the video that Microsoft already had a valid license to use.

  • It's 2.3 billion AM.  Do you know where your files are?  (ZDNet)

    If you want to keep something forever, label it "porn" and put it in a public S3 bucket.

1 I think Jess Frazelle has gotten a little crazy with the every-app-a-container thing. Admittedly, her s3cmd Dockerfile was convenient for running it from the shell on my Synology NAS, but how would you even use a dockerized TeXLive, for instance?

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
