The Collapsing Empire




ISBN: 076538888X
LibraryThing
This is a fun fast read, as is everything by Mr Scalzi. The basic premise here is that of a set of interdependent colonies that are about to lose their ability to trade with each other, and are therefore doomed. Oh, except they don't know that and are busy having petty trade wars instead. It isn't a super intellectual read, but it is fun and does leave me wanting to know what happens to the empire...

Python3 venvs for people who are old and grumpy

I've been using virtualenvwrapper to make venvs for python2 for probably six or so years. I know it, and understand it. Now some bad man (hi Ramon!) is making me do python3, and virtualenvwrapper just isn't a thing over there as best as I can tell.

So how do I make a venv? Its really not too bad...

First, install the dependencies:

Things I read today: the best description I've seen of metadata routing in neutron

I happened upon a thread about OVN's proposal for how to handle nova metadata traffic, which linked to this very good Suse blog post about how metadata traffic is routed in neutron. I'm just adding the link here because I think it will be useful to others. The OVN proposal is also an interesting read.

Light to Light, Day Three

The third and final day of the Light to Light Walk at Ben Boyd National Park. This was a shorter (8 kms) easier walk. A nice way to finish the journey.



Interactive map for this route.

Light to Light, Day Two

Our second day walking the Light to Light walk in Ben Boyd National Park. This second day was about 10 kms and was on easier terrain than the first day. That said, probably a little less scenic than the first day too.
