- Borg Documentation — Borg – Deduplicating Archiver 0.30.1 documentation – BorgBackup (short: Borg) is a deduplicating backup program. Optionally, it supports compression and authenticated encryption.
- freebase – IATA to country API – Stack Overflow – I'm developing an app that needs to look up country codes (ISO-3166 alpha2) based on IATA-codes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IATA_airport_code).
Is there an (preferably free) API for that?
- Gutenberg — A Meaningful Web Typography Starter Kit – Gutenberg is a flexible and simple–to–use web typography starter kit for web designers and developers. It’s a small step towards a better typography on the web. Beautiful typographic styles can be made by setting base type size, line-height (leading) and measure (max-width).
- Sausage Pasta Bake Recipe – Quorn – Quorn sausages are high in protein and low in saturated fat. And this pasta bake works brilliantly with any of our sausage flavours or Chicken Style Pieces. Serve it up with garlic bread and salad leaves for a hearty, family-friendly meal.
- Build a Kubernetes cloud with Raspberry Pi | Opensource.com – Ever wanted to make your very own cloud? Now you can! All it takes is some cheap open source hardware and open source software. For about $200, I was able to set up four Raspberry Pi 2s with the Kubernetes cloud operating system using Fabric8.
Fabric8 is an open source DevOps and integration platform that works out of the box on any Kubernetes or OpenShift environment and provides continuous delivery, management, ChatOps, and a Chaos Monkey. In short, it's the best framework there is to develop and manage your microservices on. (Full disclosure: I work on the Red Hat Fabric8 project.)
Never before was there a better match between a software architecture and the hardware it runs on. The Pis are completely silent (no fan) and have a quite powerful quad-core CPU, while the microservices architecture makes each process relatively small so it can run on the 1GB RAM memory constraint of each node. You can simply add more Pis if you need more computing power. Lastly, it's just plain fun to play with the hardware instead of logging into a remote virtual machine at Amazon.

- How to configure NFS Server and Client Configuration on Ubuntu 15.10 | Ubuntu Geek – NFS was developed at a time when we weren't able to share our drives like we are able to today — in the Windows environment. It offers the ability to share the hard disk space of a big server with many smaller clients. Again, this is a client/server environment. While this seems like a standard service to offer, it was not always like this. In the past, clients and servers were unable to share their disk space.
Thin clients have no hard drives and thus need a "virtual" hard-disk. The NFS mount their hard disk from the server and, while the user thinks they are saving their documents to their local (thin client) disk, they are in fact saving them to the server. In a thin client environment, the root, usr and home partitions are all offered to the client from the server via NFS.
