How to use GeoIP with Nginx on Ubuntu 16.04

This tutorial explains how to use the GeoIP module with nginx on Ubuntu 16.04 to find out where your visitors come from. The GeoIP module sets multiple variables like $geoip_country_name, $geoip_country_code, $geoip_city, etc. that you can use in your PHP scripts or directly in your nginx configuration, for example to serve content in different languages based on the user’s country.

The Freewrite is the ultimate distraction-free writing tool

 Writing on a computer is awful. Without discipline – in my case, at least – an effort to get out 1,000 words of non-fiction usually ends up consisting of thirty minutes of web browsing before writing, intermittent Facebook trips while tapping out a few hundred words, and a nice jaunt through Hacker News at the 750 word mark. I get the job done, but I know my brain isn’t doing… Read More

Writing kernels that boot with Qemu and Grub – a tutorial

Writing kernels that boot with Qemu and Grub – a tutorial
======================================================================

This tutorial is very much based on Brandon’s excellent Kernel
Development Tutorial

http://www.osdever.net/bkerndev/index.php

It is by no means meant to replace the above tutorial. Indeed, I am
skipping much of the explanation that is already in the original
tutorial and present what is mostly a bare-bones introduction. Really,
you may consider it complimentary. Use it if you want to use ELF
format instead of a.out and if you are interested in creating a
bootable Grub image.

Basically i modified a few things here and there (changed to ELF
format and show how you can do without the linker script [XXX TODO]
and how you can get the multiboot_info in main [XXX TODO]), but most
of it is still the same as far as the kernel and linker are concerned.

Indeed, for now at least, I only included a very basic kernel that
prints “hello world”, without any of the drivers that Brandon has

Docker Built-In Orchestration Ready for Production: Docker 1.12 Goes GA

We wanted to thank everyone in the community for helping us achieve this great milestone of making Docker 1.12 generally available for production environments. Docker 1.12 adds the largest and most sophisticated set of features into a single release since the beginning of the Docker project. Dozens of engineers, both Docker employees and external contributors, have made substantial contributions to every aspect of 1.12 orchestration including core algorithms, integration into the Docker Engine, documentation and testing.
We’re very grateful to the community, which has helped us with feedback, bug reports and new ideas. We couldn’t have done it without the help in particular of the tens of thousands of Docker for Mac and Windows beta users who have been testing our 1.12 features since DockerCon in June. We’ve seen contributions ranging from bash tab completion to UX up-and-down votes that helped us understand what users want most. Compared to what we
