I’ve often thought about the levels we go to now to make things simpler by continuing to make them more complex. This is an excellent site/book about making things lean again – https://leanweb.dev
diskimage-builder is an OS disk image building tool from the OpenStack project. diskimage-builder allows you to create customized OS disk images for a number of the larger Linux distributions that you can then use in basically any virtualization system including cloud providers like AWS and Azure. In this post I’m going to discuss how to get start with diskimage-builder.Continue reading
I recently picked up a HiLetgo brand ESP8266 “NodeMCU” device (version 1.0 specifically) from Amazon
Fantastic read, so many clever tips – Source
“Huang gave a number of reasons why the first Honeycomb-powered tablets haven’t had a strong start. Specifically with regard to the Xoom, he said the initial model introduced should not have included 3G, and should have been a Wi-Fi-only option.
“It’s a point of sales problem. It’s an expertise problem. It’s a marketing problem to consumers. It’s a price point problem,” he reportedly said, adding: “And it’s a software richness of content problem.””

Been working again lately with OpenACS and making some progress. Thought I’d link to a few of the places I’ve been getting help in case anyone else out there is also interested in this.
OpenACS is an open source CWMP/TR-069 server and is proving to be quite useful.
He cited sales “cheaper” smartphones like the the $49 iPhone 3GS as the primary reason for the lackluster performance.
It isn’t the $49 iPhone 3GS that is killing your tablet’s, it’s the lackluster performance. The Xoom is a dog and if it wasn’t for the badge at boot that proudly boasts there is a dual-core processor inside I would have never known.
AT&T will now be larger than Verizon in customers, I’m curious what this means for coverage and performance.
Great post on how to use puppet to manage your infrastructure. This is something I need to get back to looking at and implementing.
Reading headlines like this really emphasizes just how lost Microsoft is right now
This tells me two things. One, Windows Phone 7 was nothing more than a reaction to iOS. Two, they had no further strategy than that.
Apparently it simply didn’t occur to them that Apple might take their new mobile operating system and bring it to a tablet device, the same type of device Microsoft has been trying to create *for years* and have failed. Unfortunately for Microsoft, and everyone else for that matter, Apple doesn’t just have a great mobile OS, they also already have an entire supporting ecosystem adding tremendous value to their mobile OS.
Clearly Microsoft, who has been trying build a tablet people actually want to use for years, simply doesn’t know what they’re doing. “Redmond, start your copiers” is really real. You have to feel a little bad for Microsoft. They’ve been trying for years and Apples launches one out of the park on their first try. But the difference here is that Apple has their own vision.
