Weekend Observations

This weekend seemed to be oddly one of the better weekends I've had in quite some time. I feel that certain things were accomplished, while not feeling "I didn't have a weekend". What was different this time than all those other weekends as of late?

Tiredy-tired

Just finished the first week of my student placement. Going okay except for being very tired of an evening, and needing to sleep early in order to be rested and wake early enough to get there - am not used to working full-time hours. Which would not be a problem except I have an assignment due Monday next week and little energy to be working on it. Hope I will manage anyway.

Long news

Started on project Catch Up Chronologically To The Podcasts I Subscribe To [on 2015-0-17]. This is something I have attempted a few times since 2012, periodically restarting as I devise more satisfying (i.e. completist) ways of going about it. The furthest I got was covering the span from 2005 to early 2008, by the close of 2013. Since then I have gone through a few restarts and fads but hope to have finally settled on a scheme which will stick.

Good news

The good news that I have not been able to share because it has kindly inundated me in paperwork is that I got the job I applied for back in - I think - June. They contacted me about two weeks ago to say they wanted to hire me and I started earlier this week. So now I am officially a part time employee of a library, with sick leaves and regular hours and a work email address and all that.

Docker from Scratch, Part 4: Compose and Volumes

In the last post, we’ve created a repeatable web server container using a single file, the Dockerfile. While this is great, there’s one big limitation to a Dockerfile: It can only create one container. Docker containers are also only intended to run one process. What do we do if we want to run a web server, and a database, and a Solr instance, and a…

So much to say, so little me to say it with

Today has been 2015-08-20 and it feels a long way from the 10th. On the 10th I had two assignments due, one of which I got done and submitted that morning. Also that morning, a call from the municipal council's HR about the job I had interviewd for the week before - references from my current position were unacceptable due to conflict of interest, being from my current employer and therefore also the employer I was hoping to get the new job with.

Docker from Scratch, Part 3: Entrypoints and Ports

In the last post we used the RUN statement in our Dockerfile to setup and install software in our container. This saves us the trouble of creating build scripts that we need to run each time we start the container. We still have to specify the command to run when we start the container. What we want to do is eliminate that so we have less to remember each time we use the container.
