Marrying Ephemeral Docker Containers to Persistent Data

  • (Posted by bob on Sep 15, 2016 6:56 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: News Story; Groups: Linux
Docker containers are ephemeral by design. They come and they go like a herd of hyperactive squirrels, which is great for high availability, but not so great for preserving your data. Kendrick Coleman of EMC {code} demonstrated how to have both ephemeral containers and persistent data in his talk called "Highly Available & Distributed Containers" at ContainerCon North America.

Pine64’s $2 “PADI IoT Stamp” module is based on Realtek’s new “RTL8710AF” Cortex-M3 WiFi SoC, a cheaper FreeRTOS-ready competitor to the ESP8266.

You can use Node.js to create anything from a simple webchat to an app that turns your mobile phone into a game controller. If you are using a videoconferencing utility over the web, the host is probably running on Node.js. If you are accessing your email and day planner through a web browser or playing online games, Node.js is sure to be somewhere in the mix, too...

Moview Review: Snowden (Live)

  •; By Scott Dowdle (Posted by dowdle on Sep 15, 2016 3:08 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: Reviews, Security
I got to see "Snowden" two days prior to national release at a special event dubbed "Snowden Live" because it included a satellite feed of a live Q&A with Oilver Stone and the two leads after the film... and Snowden himself live from Russia via webcam. The review is fairly spoiler free but I do give a few details as well as some information provided from the "Live" portion... and perhaps somewhat inappropriate "Social and Political Analysis" commentary too. Enjoy!

  • Story Type: News Story
PowerPoint is one of those programs whose use has become so ingrained in the corporate world that it is probably running the risk of becoming completely genericized, in the same way that some people use Kleenex to refer to all tissues, or BAND-AIDs to refer to all bandages. read more

It's time to make LibreOffice and OpenOffice one again

Let's talk about OpenOffice. More than likely you've already read, countless times, that Apache OpenOffice is near the end. The last stable iteration was 4.1.2 (released October, 2015) and a recent major security flaw took a month to patch. A lack of coders has brought development to a creeping crawl. And then, the worst possible news hit the ether; the project suggested users switch to MS Office (or LibreOffice).

If Congress doesn’t pass legislation blocking this proposal, the new rules go into effect on December 1.

Teach your Grandmother to write scripts

Regular readers of The Linux Rain will know that I'm keen on writing simple shell scripts to automate repetitive and complicated tasks. Some of those scripts are for terminal use, others for GUI applications. They all have this in common: they reduce lots of keystrokes and mouse-clicks to a single keyboard shortcut or a single click (on an icon or a menu item). Power users in the corporate world and sysadmins use scripts to save time and effort. Seniors like me do it to save effort and because it's a simpler way to interact with a computer, and we really like keeping things simple.

Automating repetitive tasks for digital artists with Python

Artists and designers should know how to code. There, I said it. Now, I could go into a good in-depth exposition on how the artist mindset and the developer/engineer mindset aren't all that different, or how the image of the "non-technical artist" is a relatively recent phenomenon. Those are topics for another article. For the purposes of this article, suffice it to say that knowing a little code will not only give you a better understanding of how your digital tools work, but that knowledge will help you create your work more efficiently. read more

Bug of the month: Cache flow problem crashes Samsung phone apps

Exploding batteries to the left, exploding code to the right. It's not been a good summer for Samsung. It packed its Galaxy Note 7 smartphones with detonating batteries, sparking a global recall. Apps built by Mono, the software development toolkit, were crashing indiscriminatingly on Samsung's latest Android handsets with illegal instruction errors despite the code being good.
