Es war so gewesen: Eigentlich wollten drei Freunde mit dem Ladefuchs nur die Elektromobilität ein Stückchen besser machen und der Community etwas zurückgeben. Dass die App mindestens für uns nicht kostenlos sein würde, war uns von Anfang an klar. Hunderte Stunden Arbeit, Logo-, Server- und AppStore-Kosten hatten wir einkalkuliert. Dass wir Dank der Arbeit am Ladefuchs im Rahmen einer frischen EU-weiten Abmahn-Masche den Gegenwert eines ordentlichen Gebrauchtwagens an einen Abmahnanwalt nach Österreich überweisen würden, hätten wir hingegen nie gedacht.
I was asked to assist in debugging a strange issue involving a BIND resolver: seemingly correlating with an upgrade to Debian 10 a while ago, the chaps were reporting that their 9.11.5 BIND resolvers where responding with impossible TTLs on NOERROR/NODATA responses. My answer: nope – can’t happen.
Andrew Wilkinson's tale of how he blew $10,000,000 building a to-do list app perfectly illustrates the danger of trying to analyze your own failures. It's so easy to fall in love with one of those infinite alternate universes where you just did that one thing differently and everything worked out. Like "if only we had raised venture capital, we would have made it". No, sorry, you probably wouldn't have.
For context, the PinePhone has a Quectel EG25-G modem, which handles GPS and wireless connectivity for the PinePhone. This piece of hardware is one of the few components on the phone which is closed-source.
With companies on lockdown, remote work is currently at the peak of its hype cycle. Leaders and managers are touting its efficiency and flexibility... The data-backed reality, however, offers a more nuanced perspective.
That’s the purpose of the Root Signing Ceremony—a rigorous procedure around signing the root DNS zone’s public keying information for the next few months. The private signing key used in this process is quite literally the key to the entire DNSSEC-protected Internet. A public, audited, and tightly controlled ceremony around accessing this key is a necessity for DNSSEC to succeed as a global standard.
A few weeks ago, my kids wanted to hack my linux desktop, so they typed and clicked everywhere, while I was standing behind them looking at them play... when the screensaver core dumped and they actually hacked their way in! wow, those little hackers...
In the old days, when Google (or any poorly tuned AI that Google unleashed) decided it wanted to kill your business, it would usually resort to denying access to one of its multiple walled gardens, and that was that.
I bet right now, if you thought about it, you could come up with some change that would be great for your team or your project. And I bet you’ve been ignoring it because “it’ll never fly” or “management won’t go for it” or “people will think it’s crazy.” And they probably will think it’s crazy, if you suggest it as a “change”.
Perhaps not quite forever, but the history with Docker feels really long in good and bad ways. I had joined Red Hat in the summer of 2015, the same summer that OpenShift 3.0 went GA. This was a remarkable event because it marked a redesign of the platform onto Kubernetes which itself had just gone to v1.0 (this is the same timeframe that GKE went GA, if you can believe it’s that old).
Since 2000, Netnod has operated i.root-servers.net, one of the Internet’s 13 root name servers and the first to be located outside of the United States. The root name servers, identified by letters A through M, provide the entry points to the Domain Name System (DNS) and are a critical part of the Internet’s infrastructure. In this post, Netnod Senior Systems Specialist Lars-Johan Liman explains the challenges of operating one of these servers.
Never again will I utter the words “it’s just a monitoring change”. Never again will I fill in the Impact field of a change request with these words, because I have learned that even though it might be just a monitoring change, it can still take down your primary database and render your products unusable.
The Netflix application runs on hundreds of smart TVs, streaming sticks and pay TV set top boxes. The role of a Partner Engineer at Netflix is to help device manufacturers launch the Netflix application on their devices. In this article we talk about one particularly difficult issue that blocked the launch of a device in Europe.
