Subuser: Docker on the Desktop

Subuser is free open-source software
Subuser is licensed under the LGPL v3. You can download the source code by clicking here.

The problem
As free software developers we like to share. We surf the web and discover new code. We are eager to try it out. We live out an orgy of love and trust, unafraid that some code we cloned from git might be faulty or malicious. We live in the 60s, carefree hippies.
This is utopia.
But sharing code isn’t safe. Every time we try out some stranger’s script we put ourselves at risk. Despite the occasional claim that linux is a secure operating system, haphazardly sharing programs is NOT secure.
Furthermore, the fragmentation of the linux desktop means that packaging work is needlessly repeated. Programs that build and run on Fedora must be repackaged for Ubuntu. This takes time away from creating great free open source software.
Subuser with Docker attacks both

Why Infinite Scrolling is probably a bad idea

7 reasons why Infinite Scrolling is probably a bad ideaOn more than one occasion I have found myself trying to convince team-mates that Infinite Scrolling and its close relative Show More is more likely to degrade the experience than improve upon it. I thought I would jot down my notes on the matter and share them with you. Here they are:1. The footer becomes unusablePeople understand what a footer is and that it is likely to contain links to important secondary information. Infinite scrolling means the footer keeps getting pushed just out of reach by the freshly loaded content.2. Performance degradesIf you’re using infinite scrolling on a long page, you’re constantly loading more and more content into memory. This will have a negative impact on page performance, since the browser has much more work to do in order to render the page.Also, the page needs to listen constantly for scroll
