Excellent resource! Does anyone know of comparable listing for the C64?

Anyone else having trouble reading the slides in Chrome? I'm getting "Uncaught SecurityError: Failed to read the 'localStorage' property from 'Window': Access is denied for this document." in the console. Works fine in Firefox though.

-----


I'm also getting those errors - probably because I block third party cookies. A workaround would be to open the slideshare links and view the presentations from their site. In Incognito, so their cookies won't matter :)

-----


nope, fine for me.

Because it's the answer to life, the universe and everything? :)

The stats seem to disagree (1): Chrome has risen from a global usage share of 20% in 2011 to almost 50% today. Compare that to Firefox (2011: 28%, now: 16%) and IE (2011: 44%, now: 18%).

I'm pretty sure he's talking about W3C/WHATWG activity, not market share.

It "meant something" for a tiny fraction of web developers. The vast majority of developers in 2005 was probably either using Flash or creating something that only worked in IE (with its 85% usage share).

I have a feeling this is not just a problem with Docker. People tend to choose technologies not because they solve their problem, but because it's hip to be using the newest stuff, even if it's far too big and complicated for their simple usecase.

-----


In this regard I think the remarks of McKinley's "Choose Boring Technology" [1,2] is quite relevant.

Big thanks for this links. Actually this is really true for Docker and DevOps. There are proven concepts and known unknown but for Docker the unknown unknown part is really scary especially regarding security for production. Maybe for bigger companies this is no problem but for small dev teams this is very risky and time consuming.

Just one non trivial example: I can secure Ubuntu against sshd attacks pretty good and easy with `sudo apt-get install fail2ban`. Now try to secure CoreOS against sshd attacks. There are guys out there who tried to run fail2ban in a container (without luck) and so far I've only found one hacky script which tries to do the same oO https://github.com/ianblenke/coreos-vagrant-kitchen-sink/blo...

CoreOS is not docker. You can run docker on ubuntu and install fail2ban on it. I don't see the problem here.

Maybe not quite what you're looking for, but i was surprised at how well Microsoft Excels handles pasting HTML tables.

No, it's not relevant at all.

It's not a dumb rant against dropdowns: it's a well written piece with lots of examples and arguments that show which UX patterns are better than a dropdown for specific usecases. That's not preaching, it's explaining.

Finding a small flaw in his site and using that to downplay the quality of the article and the competence of the author is shortsighted, rude and unfair. Nobody's perfect. Everybody makes mistakes. Bragging about it on Hacker News doesn't help anyone.

-----


Good point. I will say, though, that disabled zoom is a for more prevalent, annoying, and chronic problem than dropdowns.

It's orders of magnitude difference. Like, years to days. As in, maybe once or twice a year I get annoyed by a misplaced dropdown, whereas every couple of days I get annoyed by disabled zoom. One can make a solid critique of the wine at dinner but it's not irrelevant to point out the restaurant is on fire.

-----


It isn't really a small flaw when your article about mobile faux pas doesn't work on mobile for many.

It's just people making a comment about that fact and other people agreeing or responding with an opinion. That discussion isn't stopping anyone from discussing anything else.

a 1.0 release that we can assume stable for a few months

Am i the only one getting a bit cynical that we're now hoping that a 1.0 is stable enough 'for a few months'?

-----


Yes.
