  • The Twelve-Factor App – In the modern era, software is commonly delivered as a service: called web apps, or software-as-a-service. The twelve-factor app is a methodology for building software-as-a-service apps that: Use declarative formats for setup automation, to minimize time and cost for new developers joining the project; Have a clean contract with the underlying operating system, offering maximum portability between execution environments; Are suitable for deployment on modern cloud platforms, obviating the need for servers and systems administration; Minimize divergence between development and production, enabling continuous deployment for maximum agility; And can scale up without significant changes to tooling, architecture, or development practices. The twelve-factor methodology can be applied to apps written in any programming language, and which use any combination of backing services (database, queue, memory cache, etc).
  • British Behaviour, British Etiquette | Debrett’s – Our indispensable Guide to British life and manners. From Countryside Rules, Dress Codes, Kilts, Meeting Royalty and Port Etiquette to Apologising, Introductions, Queuing, Reticence, Small Talk and Understatment.

  • A Mailserver on Ubuntu 12.04: Postfix, Dovecot, MySQL – This long post contains a recipe for building a reasonably secure Ubuntu 12.04 mailserver in Amazon Web Services, using Postfix 2.9.1, Dovecot 2.0.19, and MySQL 5.5.22, with anti-spam packages in the form of amavisd-new 2.6.5, Clam AntiVirus 0.97.3, SpamAssassin 3.3.2, and Postgrey 1.3.4. Local users are virtual rather than being system users. Administration of users and domains is achieved through the Postfix Admin 2.3.6 web interface. Webmail is provided by Horde Groupware Webmail Edition 5.04.

  • home | Policyd – Policyd v2 (codenamed "cluebringer") is a multi-platform policy server for popular MTAs. This policy daemon is designed mostly for large scale mail hosting environments. The main goal is to implement as many spam combating and email compliance features as possible while at the same time maintaining the portability, stability and performance required for mission critical email hosting of today. Most of the ideas and methods implemented in Policyd v2 stem from Policyd v1 as well as the authors' long time involvement in large scale mail hosting industry.
  • Using ALIAS-type DNS records for CNAME functionality on naked domains, and an easier alternative – If you've ever wanted to set up domains using cloud hosting services like Heroku or Windows Azure, you've probably come across a limitation with their platforms in regards to using naked domains (the version without the 'www' part, which is also called zone apex or root domain).
  • the MUST HAVE – Puoi produrre elettricità, idrogeno per cucinare e l'acqua calda di cui hai bisogno. Raccogli e purifica la pioggia, irriga il tuo orto e molto altro ancora…

  • Keepalived for Linux – Keepalived is a routing software written in C. The main goal of this project is to provide simple and robust facilities for loadbalancing and high-availability to Linux system and Linux based infrastructures. Loadbalancing framework relies on well-known and widely used Linux Virtual Server (IPVS) kernel module providing Layer4 loadbalancing. Keepalived implements a set of checkers to dynamically and adaptively maintain and manage loadbalanced server pool according their health. On the other hand high-availability is achieved by VRRP protocol. VRRP is a fundamental brick for router failover. In addition, Keepalived implements a set of hooks to the VRRP finite state machine providing low-level and high-speed protocol interactions. Keepalived frameworks can be used independently or all together to provide resilient infrastructures.
  • The BIRD Internet Routing Daemon Project – BIRD is an Internet Routing Daemon designed to avoid all of these shortcomings, to support all the routing technology used in the today's Internet or planned to be used in near future and to have a clean extensible architecture allowing new routing protocols to be incorporated easily. Among other features, BIRD supports: * both IPv4 and IPv6 protocols * multiple routing tables * the Border Gateway Protocol (BGPv4) * the Routing Information Protocol (RIPv2) * the Open Shortest Path First protocol (OSPFv2, OSPFv3) * the Router Advertisements for IPv6 hosts a virtual protocol for exchange of routes between different routing tables on a single host a command-line interface allowing on-line control and inspection of status of the daemon soft reconfiguration[…]
  • How to make MaxScale High Available with Corosync/Pacemaker | MariaDB – MaxScale, an open-source database-centric router for MySQL and MariaDB makes High Availability possible by hiding the complexity of backends and masking failures. MaxScale itself however is a single application running in a Linux box between the client application and the databases – so how do we make MaxScale High Available? This blog post shows how to quickly setup a Pacemaker/Corosync environment and configure MaxScale as a managed cluster resource.

  • claudioc/jingo – A git based wiki engine written for node.js, with a decent design, a search capability and a good typography.
  • fastmonkeys/stellar – Stellar allows you to quickly restore database when you are e.g. writing database migrations, switching branches or messing with SQL. PostgreSQL and MySQL are supported.
  • Sandstorm Apps – This page is for people who already have a Sandstorm instance set up. Use the buttons below to install apps.
  • Sandstorm – Sandstorm's server-side sandboxing is based on the same underlying Linux kernel features as LXC and Docker. We use the system calls directly for finer-grained control.
  • apenwarr/sshuttle – Transparent proxy server that works as a poor man's VPN. Forwards over ssh. Doesn't require admin. Works with Linux and MacOS. Supports DNS tunneling.
