CockroachDB Interactive, D3-Powered Simulations

Best on Desktop! This article features some really interesting simulations that you should check out on your desktop.
Cockroaches first evolved more than 300M years ago, and they
haven’t changed enough that the O.G. is now unrecognizable. “Modern”
cockroaches are about 200M years old; that they’re still with us,
largely unchanged, is quite impressive from an evolutionary
perspective.
Meanwhile, everything seems to be evolving at lightspeed in our
industry. The growth of the public cloud has prompted technology
investments, resulting in a new wave of advanced
orchestration capabilities (e.g. Cloud Foundry, Mesosphere, Docker,
Kubernetes, etc). That these capabilities bring Google-like power to
operations is no accident—they were largely inspired by or even
created at Google. Their aim is simple: realize the efficiencies
available through the public cloud by coherently managing the
lifecycles of hundreds or thousands of VMs to deploy
microservices. The public cloud provides the extremely low-friction
resources; the orchestration layer provides the control surface.
To date, Kubernetes has made running

Do not use NPM 5.7

I’m opening this issue because:
What’s going wrong?
This issue has been happening ever since 5.7.0 was released a few hours ago. It seems to have completely broken my filesystem permissions and caused me to have to manually fix the permissions of critical files and folders. I believe that it is related to the commit 94227e1 which is causing chown on the wrong files and folders, often critical filesystem files and folders.
By using sudo npm on a non-root user (root users do not have the same effect), filesystem permissions are being modified. For example, if I run sudo npm –help or sudo npm update -g, all commands starting with sudo npm cause my filesystem to change ownership of directories such as /etc, /usr, /boot, and other critical directories needed for running the system to the current user running the command.
I found that a selection of directories in / were owned by a

Drupal 8.5.0-rc1 is available for testing

The first release candidate for the upcoming Drupal 8.5.0 release is now available for testing. Drupal 8.5.0 is expected to be released March 7.
Download Drupal-8.5.0-rc1
8.5.x makes the Media module available for all, improves migrations significantly, stabilizes the Content Moderation and Settings Tray modules, serves dynamic pages faster with BigPipe enabled by default, and introduces the new experimental Layout Builder module. The release includes several very important fixes for workflows of content translations and supports PHP 7.2. Finally, 8.5.0-rc1 also includes the same security updates that are provided in 8.4.5.
What does this mean to me?
For Drupal 8 site owners
Drupal 8.4.5, a security update and the final release of the 8.4.x series, has also been released this week. 8.4.x sites should update immediately to 8.4.5, but going forward, 8.4.x will receive no further releases following 8.5.0’s release date, and sites should prepare to update from 8.4.x to 8.5.x in order to continue

Disney Loses in Redbox Copyright Row

Disney has lost a bid to stop movie rental company Redbox from reselling download codes for its films. From a report: Redbox bought Disney movies on DVD to offer for rental in its kiosks. The DVDs were often bundled with a code to download a copy of the film. Disney requested an injunction to stop the practice, saying that Redbox had no business arrangement with it. A California federal judge accused Disney of “copyright misuse.” Redbox rents and sells movies via tens of thousands of automated kiosks that dispense DVD and Blu-ray discs.

Botched npm Update Crashes Linux Systems, Forces Users to Reinstall

Catalin Cimpanu, reporting for BleepingComputer: A bug in npm (Node Package Manager), the most widely used JavaScript package manager, will change ownership of crucial Linux system folders, such as /etc, /usr, /boot. Changing ownership of these files either crashes the system, various local apps, or prevents the system from booting, according to reports from users who installed npm v5.7.0. — the buggy npm update. Users who installed this update — mostly developers and software engineers — will likely have to reinstall their system from scratch or restore from a previous system image.
