Today I ran into this a broken swarm. I have not figured out why it would report itself as “reachability: active, status: down”. The manager But fixing the manager was somewhat easy. It would not leave the swarm, it would not respond with “up” to “systemctl restart docker” calls. The “down” status would also survive… Continue Reading Swarm manager active but down and Dockerd start: no space left on device
Trying out Asana I found this website: Turn Asana into a Windows desktop app I wonder if this works for any website. I will play around with it a bit. *edit: This hints to a Windows way to do the same thing: Run Google Keep on the desktop in its own window

This thread to the rescue: How to stop an automatic redirect from “http://”… Continue Reading Disabling HSTS for any domain

I could have bet we are so over power outages.” Well apparently we’re not. And the power outage killed large parts of my working quality tonight. Simply… Continue Reading Thoughts on errors in technological infrastructure and products
Sometimes there are problems to export a website certificate that is not trusted by one of the major CAs (self-signed or development certificates for example). Usually you’d open the certificate details in Chrome, then drag and drop the image icon to any folder on your computer (for example your Desktop). Then you’d double click it and import… Continue Reading Export Website Certificate from Chrome on OSX
When creating new docker-machine Docker nodes, one needs to add necessary root CA certificates to them in order to let them communicate with SSL protected services. The easiest, if manual, method is to copy the ca certificate (in .pem format) to /var/lib/boot2docker/certs on EVERY swarm node (if running in swarm mode).
