      • Net2Docker container orchestration tools

        The rise of containers has changed the way programmers think about developing, deploying and maintaining software applications. Using the capabilities of native isolation of modern operatingsystems, containers support a separation of concerns similar to virtual machines, but without consuming too many resources and greater deployment flexibility compared with virtual machines.

        Containers are so lightweight and flexible that they have spawned new application architectures. This new approach consists of packaging the different services that make up an application in separate containers and then deploying those containers across a cluster of physical or virtual machines.

      • Kubernetes BlogLive and let live with Kluctl and Server Side Apply | Kubernetes

        This blog post was inspired by a previous Kubernetes blog post about Advanced Server Side Apply. The author of said blog post listed multiple benefits for applications and controllers when switching to server-side apply (from now on abbreviated with SSA). Especially the chapter about CI/CD systems motivated me to respond and write down my thoughts and experiences.

        These thoughts and experiences are the results of me working on Kluctl for the past 2 years. I describe Kluctl as "The missing glue to put together large Kubernetes deployments, composed of multiple smaller parts (Helm/Kustomize/...) in a manageable and unified way."

      • Linux HintSyslog Tutorial

        “Syslog is a way of consolidating logs from various systems to a remote Syslog server. The Syslog server has three key components. The first is a listener that utilizes UDP over port 514 to gather Syslog data. Next is the database that stores the generated Syslog data, and lastly, the management and filtering software that allows filtering the Syslog data for quick troubleshooting.

        As a system administrator, understanding how Syslog works and how to configure client machines to channel their Syslog data to the remote server comes in handy. This guide discusses Syslog in Linux and offers steps for consolidating logs to a remote machine.”

      • Ubuntu PitMasalla Icon Theme: Inspired by the Latest Flat Design Trend

        The Masalla icon theme is a perfect choice for anyone looking to spruce up their Linux desktop. The theme comes with more than 15,000 different icons, including a wide variety of options for applications, devices, categories, places/folders, and much more. It’s also compatible with the most popular Linux desktops like Gnome, Cinnamon, Xfce, Unity, KDE, Mate, LXDE, and others.

        If you have any interest in design, you’ve probably noticed that the current trend is ‘flat’ looks. And I absolutely love it! Hayder Majid, an Iraqi engineer, created this flat Masalla icon theme. The name of his project was “Obelisk” in Arabic and Uruk city (like the Obelisk of Hammurabi in the History of Iraq).

        I had wanted to write about the Masalla icon theme for a long time because I really liked it. Unfortunately, there have been no updates from the developer in over 4 years. Recently, though, an updated version of Masalla was released 3 months ago.

      • Dirk EddelbuettelRProtoBuf 0.4.20 on CRAN: Maintenance

        A new release 0.4.20 of RProtoBuf arrived on CRAN earlier today. RProtoBuf provides R with bindings for the Google Protocol Buffers (“ProtoBuf”) data encoding and serialization library used and released by Google, and deployed very widely in numerous projects as a language and operating-system agnostic protocol.

        This release is somewhat mechanical and in the spirit of many other recent releases. clang-15 is, as more recent compilers do, more stringent on definitions and wants to see some void in argument-less signatures. Happy to oblige. At the same time, GitHub Actions started to nag us about minimum versions of node code so an upgrade to a newer action is warranted, again as with many other affected packages. We also found another http:// URL hiding somewhere so that was cleaned. Lastly, it appears Protocol Buffers themselves moved on and now need / prefer C++17 so were happy to oblige.

      • IT WireiTWire - Helping Optus spin breach fallout: the AFR shows the way

        One reason why a company like Singtel Optus can leak customer data in a breach that is, by all accounts, its own fault and then avoid being held to account is because of the media's fawning coverage.

        A typical example can be seen in Friday's Australian Financial Review, which carried an interview about what the Optus chairman Paul O’Sullivan has learnt from the breach. Of course, it's good to know that the man has learnt something.

        For context, Optus has been dragged kicking and screaming to pledge that it would pay for replacing the passports that were leaked. Only this morning, the ABC reported that the company had been made to extend this to holders of foreign passports as well – after the matter had been ventilated on the 7.30 program.

        The telco is still refusing to pay for the replacement of driving licences, only expressing a willingness to pay for the administration expenses associated with issuing these forms of ID.

      • AccessNowTwo years of internet shutdowns: people in Tigray, Ethiopia, deserve better - Access Now

        Today, November 4, 2022, marks two years since authorities implemented internet shutdowns in the Tigray region of Ethiopia. After 730 days, this must come to an end.

        As peace talks between the government of Ethiopia and Tigray regional forces show positive signs of a ceasefire, this is the moment to reconnect all — everybody, from civil society to the African Union, has a responsibility to stand up and demand action.

        “For two years — 730 days — millions of people in Tigray have been forced to survive through a horrific war, their circumstances exacerbated by a deliberate internet shutdown that prevents them from communicating with family and friends, accessing potentially life-saving information, and letting the world know what’s happening in their region,” said Felicia Anthonio, #KeepItOn Campaign Manager at Access Now. “Authorities must reconnect Tigray now.”

      • The Efficacy Of Live Music

        Tonight I paid for my first-ever official live music event. Not a free one, mind you. Fifteen dollars for entry, fifteen dollars well-spent for an entire night wherein the air became electric with sound, where the potential of humanity to channel emotion and effort into invisible audio waves became tangible.

        I am considering the legitimacy of music journalism, its relationship with music, how well I can straddle both fields- production, mastering, composition, layering- a veritable balancing act. Journalism is, regardless of the others, a channel worthy of respect, of serious pursuit. It has gone from being a minor fascination of mine, a mere passing interest, into an obsession over which I would shell out $15 if I believed the band was worthy enough.

      • Let's talk about how we talk about sex and entitlement

        For those of us who are women with strong sex drives, comments that make universal declarations about the extent to which sexual interaction is a ‘real’ need is yet another instance of women being invalidated and told what our needs ‘should’ and ‘shouldn't’ be - and also, effectively, another form of slut-shaming.

        • Mirroring sources used in nixpkgs (software preservation)

          This may appear like a very niche use case, in my quest of software conservancy for nixpkgs I didn't encounter many people understanding why I was doing this.

          I would like to present you a project I made to easily download all the sources files required to build packages from nixpkgs, allowing to keep offline copies.

          Why would you like to keep a local copy? If upstream disappear, you can't get access to the sources anymore, except maybe in Hydra, but you rely on a third party to access the sources, so it's still valuable to have local copies of software you care about, just to make copies. It's not that absolutely useful for everyone, but it's always important to have such tools available.

        • Barriers to Gemini

          A frequent criticism of Gemini, and a topic that arises on Gemini itself from time to time, is that the protocol gatekeeps. Specifically, it has a barrier to entry for viewing content, and an even higher one for posting content. Szczeżuja mentioned^ a recent discussion about the matter on Mastodon, and JeanG3nie gave a reply^^ yesterday that resonated with me.

          In a way, talking about these issues on Gemini is a little self-defeating, and it's fresh meat for Gemini's detractors. "Gemini doesn't have a high barrier to entry", we say in our gemlogs, which the critics probably won't read because they don't want to install a client or use a proxy. The fact that they don't see the responses proves their point, right? That's all the convincing they need.

* Gemini (Primer) links can be opened using Gemini software. It's like the World Wide Web but a lot lighter.
