And the second linkdump with contents I read that week. I don’t like the idea, sounds very 1984: Wi-Fiber is creating safer cities by combining wireless tech, smart streetlights Never tried multi-stage Dockerfiles, but sounds interesting to get red of libraries and installer files: Fun with Multi-stage Dockerfiles Most interesting for me was the part about the available docker images carpedm20/awesome-hacking I use Shaarli to store links (on mobile and my computers), which are not saved to my Readlater stuff in Wallabag, but I will give the console tool Buku a chance next week.

I’m not sure how long ago I started following Dirk Deimekes Blog. It must be years, because I found the rss feed address already in my Google reader export. First of all I need to thank him, it is always a good read and that’s the reason I want to adopt one of his weekly habits – the linkdump.

. I screwed up that post today when I tried to edit on my mobile. Sorry for that. I added some details to get a better overview on that topic. With IBM Connections 6.0 CR1, one of the main security concepts was changed. Former versions use blacklisting to manage most of the security topics, now the complete opposite is used – white-listing. So up to IBM Connections 6.0 everything was allowed until it was not excluded in one of the blacklist files. This files are stored within the Deployment Manager profile/config/cells/<cellname>/LotusConnections-config/extern.
