How to Set Up and Deploy to a 1000-Node Docker Swarm

There are some very good articles and posts out there which
describe in fantastic detail how Docker works and how easy
it is to start a container (now a “service” in
Docker 1.12).
However not many blogs talk about the other stuff that
must be done to successfully get the application responding
to requests from the web, and less talk about a 1000 node
cluster.

This post is for those of you who have not yet set up a cluster
in production, we’ll go through every little detail you
need to know before you set up your own 1000 node cluster.

Important note about 1000 nodes

I keep mentioning 1000 nodes in this post just to
take it to the extreme. The steps in this post will leave
you with a working 1000 node cluster but if you’re determined
to actually start a 1000 node cluster then you will end up
with a hefty bill at the end of the month. You might be better
realizing that

Transfer of Internet Governance Will Go Ahead On Oct. 1

An anonymous reader writes from a report via Computerworld: The U.S. says it will proceed with its plan to hand over oversight of the internet’s domain name system functions to a multistakeholder body on Oct. 1. Computerworld reports: “The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), under contract with the U.S. Department of Commerce, operates the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) which enables the operation of the internet domain name system (DNS). These include responsibility for the coordination of the DNS root, IP addressing and other internet protocol resources. The National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), an agency within the Commerce Department, said in March 2014 that it planned to let its contract with ICANN expire on Sept. 30, 2015, passing the oversight of the functions to a global governance model. NTIA made it clear that it would not accept a plan from internet stakeholders that would replace its

Launching the Next Version of CourtListener.com

Today we’re launching a new version of CourtListener.com that focuses on making the site more useful and intuitive.
The big new feature in this version is the addition of a new navigation bar at the top of every screen, as you can see below:

The new navigation bar on every page.

This should be a big improvement over our old site, making it much easier and intuitive to use the oral arguments, judges, and visualizations sections of CourtListener.
The other big feature in this version is new advanced search pages for opinions, oral arguments, and judges. For example, here’s a screenshot of the new judicial advanced search page:

The new judicial advanced search page.

This page should make it much easier to understand and query our judge database, and we expect the pages for advanced oral argument search and advanced opinion search will be similarly valuable.
The final enhancement we’re excited about is a layer of polish across the entire

Using Feature Queries in CSS

There’s a tool in CSS that you might not have heard of yet. It’s powerful. It’s been there for a while. And it’ll likely become one of your favorite new things about CSS.
Behold, the @supports rule. Also known as Feature Queries.
With @supports, you can write a small test in your CSS to see whether or not a particular “feature” (CSS property or value) is supported, and apply a block of code (or not) based on the answer. Like this:
@supports (display: grid) {
// code that will only run if CSS Grid is supported by the browser
}

If the browser understands display: grid, then all of the styling inside the brackets will be applied. Otherwise all of that styling will be skipped.
Now, there seems to be a bit of confusion about what Feature Queries are for. This is not some kind of external verification that analyzes whether or not a

Git Workflow Basics

Git Workflow BasicsThis post is intended for beginners, but I assume you already know the basics of Git usage (commit, push, pull, etc).You probably know how to use Git in your daily basis. But knowing how to commit, push and pull isn’t enough to really work with software development.It doesn’t matter if you use GitHub, Bitbucket, GitLab or Stash, one thing is true: you must follow a code review process to ensure your code has minimum quality standard.This post will provide you a quick guide on how to use a “open source” workflow in your projects. As the name implies, it’s the same workflow used on a whole bunch of open source projects out there.Among the benefits of this workflow are the fact that your work is completely isolated from everyone else’s and also the reduction of error going to production.But hey: use what works best for your team.

Hosting – Less Critical – Access bypass – SA-CONTRIB-2016-046

Advisory ID: DRUPAL-SA-CONTRIB-2016-046
Project: Hosting (third-party module)
Version: 7.x
Date: 2016-August-17
Security risk: 9/25 ( Less Critical) AC:Basic/A:User/CI:Some/II:None/E:Theoretical/TD:Uncommon
Vulnerability: Access bypass
Description
The Hosting module is a core component of the Aegir Hosting System.
This install profile, and accompanying suite of modules, is a hosting system that sits alongside a LAMP or LEMP server to create, deploy and manage Drupal sites.

The Hosting module does not sufficiently control access to any custom content types created by the user. The default content types are sufficiently protected.
This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that on a typical installation the users who have access normally have admin privilege already, and few installations will have created additional custom content types.

CVE identifier(s) issued
A CVE identifier will be requested, and added upon issuance, in accordance with Drupal Security Team processes.
Versions affected
Hosting 7.x-3.x versions prior to 7.x-3.7.
Drupal core is not affected. If you do not use the contributed Hosting module, there is nothing you need to
