It’s less than two months since I last wrote about Upgrading Docker, but things have changed again. New repos Part of my problem last time was that the apt repos had quietly moved from HTTP to HTTPS. This time around the repos have more visibly moved, bringing with them a new install target ‘docker-engine’, and the […]


Dockercon #2 is underway, version 1.7.0 of Docker was released at the end of last week, and lots of other new toys are being launched. Time for some upgrades. I got used to Docker always restarting containers when the daemon restarted, which included upgrades, but that behaviour went away around version 1.3.0 with the introduction […]


The second release candidate for OpenELEC 3.0 (featuring XBMC 12 ‘Frodo’) is now available (official announcement). There have been a flurry of changes over the past few weeks (over 275 by my count), but the OpenELEC team are saying that this will be one of the final release candidates before 3.0 final. If you’d like […]


The first release candidate for OpenELEC 3.0 (featuring XBMC 12 ‘Frodo’) is now available (official announcement). If you’d like to download an SD card image to install on a Raspberry Pi then it’s available from the official_images section of the Pi Chimney resources site. RC1 is 2.99.1, and later builds will be available from the […]


Anybody who’s talked to me in recent months might be surprised to hear that I recently splashed out for a copy Windows 8, as I’ve not been a great fan of it – particularly the new Metro interface[1]. The £25 upgrade from the release preview I was running seemed like a bargain though, particularly as […]


The 90 day free trial of Azure that I started so that I could describe how to build OpenELEC in the cloud is coming to a close. As I sit here once again waiting for my machine to reboot I don’t think I’ll miss it much when it’s gone. I’ve already written about my issues […]


I’ve had my original Samsung Galaxy Tab for over a year now, and it’s a great device. I particularly like that it has 3G (and that it came with a SIM that I can use relatively inexpensively in the US[1]). It shipped with Android 2.2 (Froyo), and after rooting and restocking I’ve pretty much left […]


I found myself upgrading a bunch of stuff over the last weekend, which gave me cause to reflect on what was good, and what was not so good. Android First up was my ZTE Blade, which I’ve had running Cyanogen Mod. I wasn’t super impressed with version 7.0. There were few things that it did […]


BlackBerry OS 5

15May10

One of the side effects of getting a new machine was that I used BlackBerry Desktop for the first time in ages. When it started up I was offered an upgrade to the newer 5.x OS, which I went ahead with (luckily I wasn’t in a hurry). Here’s my experience of running the new OS […]
