Today Firefox managed to start slower than a full virtual machine running KUbuntu fully booting, and starting chrome from inside it.
Well done Firefox, well done.
I've started KDE this morning and I got this error:
Can you observe how the first sentence is not connected to the second one, and how four names of apparent random stuff are being displayed?
A simple way to make your Linux update daily is to add the following script into /etc/cron.daily :
apt-get update -y && apt-get upgrade -y
yum update -y
The more and more I see this idea of paralleling work on multiple nodes.
As obviously, this is nothing new: first they were clusters, then simple distributed applications containers with a load balancer on top of them, and now clouds: distributed servers with a load balancer on top of them. Seen like, that the jump from a distributed JEE container to a cloud is almost non-existent; yes, I get that infrastructure is changed, but this is only on the surface - you still get the same controller/load balancer on top of the actual machines/application servers.
This is why the newest generation of JEE servers are `cloud ready`, whatever that means, and the JEE7 is going to target specifically clouds.
But what it truly means, is that we as developers need to change our programming model, and go back to the basics: no more session storage, and as less as possible processing on the server.
That means that JSF (in whatever incarnation 1 or 2) needs to slowly fade. Replace it by either JS, or GWT (Dart?).
SOAP? I don't think so, you probably meant REST. EJBs? I would think twice if they're not at least EJB 3.1 (read JBoss's CDI or Apache's OpenEJB). Even then I would probably go with Guice. Spring? It's the worst of the trio, but has really good backwards compatibilty - a bet not so safe with EJBs. Simpler is always better, because it allows instant integration and scalability. Do you need an Android native client? REST connectivity is a breeze to add. SOAP or EJB? Not so much.
Being stateless alows you to scale far better, and the deployment of your application - a load balancer with some application containers behind it, or the real-deal cloud - becomes a non-issue.
Are you also one of the guys/girls who doesn't like stroboscope lights whenever using autocomplete in a shell under screen? Well search no more, you can disable the visual bell by simply adding:
into your ~/.screenrc . Restart screen, and breathe relieved. This should also work with byobu.
The one to rule them all. The browsers that is.
