windows 7 - Setting up VirtualBox guest for PXE boot - Super User | https://superuser.com/
Solution: make sure the VM is using bridged networking (to the physical host adapter, 'eno1' or whatever) and install the Oracle secret-sauce Extension Pack.

virtualbox.org • View topic - PXE boot from bridged adaptor | https://forums.virtualbox.org/
Lots of good suggestions here, but all that was *really* necessary was to bridge the physical adapter ('eno1' for me) and install the non-free Extension Pack.

The bundled PXE ROM is not sufficient to boot the Windows workstation installation environment.

What is the difference between the Docker Engine and Docker Daemon? - Quora | https://www.quora.com/
Docker Daemon checks the client request and communicates with the Docker components in order to perform a service whereas, Docker Engine or Docker is the base engine installed on your host machine to build and run containers using Docker components and services


But is this right?
docker engine and daemon are the names used interchangeably. It refers to the same entity.

add a docker configuration file · Issue #937 · moby/moby | https://github.com/
Answer: there apparently is no '/etc/docker/docker.conf'; on Debian-derived distros, there's an /etc/default/docker, where you can set the DOCKER_OPTS environment variable for the daemon, though.

Vim: enter Unicode characters with 8-digit hex code - Stack Overflow | https://stackoverflow.com/
Things I know:

The command ga on the character 𝓭 gives me hex:0001d4ed.
I can copy it on the clipboard and paste it via "+p.
I know how to enter Unicode values that have a 4 digit hex code:
<C-v>u for example <C-v>u03b1 gives the α character.

Is there an alternative to sed that supports unicode? - Unix & Linux Stack Exchange | https://unix.stackexchange.com/
Just use that syntax:

sed 's/馑//g' file1

Or in the escaped form:

sed "s/$(echo -ne '\u9991')//g" file1

(Note that older versions of Bash and some shells do not understand echo -e '\u9991', so check first.)

[Request] Copy and transfer text from Notes app to Simplenote : workflow | https://www.reddit.com/
OR I think it can be done using IFTTT, if it has a Simplenote channel. You'd need to add a gmail account on Mac and enable notes, then select all notes and move to gmail from iCloud. Before that, setup IFTTT to trigger on gmail label added "Notes" (check this) copy mail to Simplenote. Notes on Mac and iOS actually uses IMAP mailboxes/labels. This is what makes it possible.

Tips and tricks: How to change default Google calendar | https://tips-a-tricks.blogspot.com/
The only real solution is to deselect all the other calendars when you're creating events. The top calendar (of the enabled ones) is the default when adding new events.

how am i supposed to remember ipv6 addresses? - Open Forum | DSLReports Forums | https://www.dslreports.com/
Short answer: local name servers or /etc/hosts. Or copy-paste.
On a broader note, I am always amazed at the comment 'How can I remember' when dealing with computers. Excuse me but isn't that what computers are for? Is the concept of making a file and then copy/paste foreign to most people? I don't have to remember anything not that I could remember my 32 digit login's and passwords, as an example. As for IPV6, for the vast majority of home users, it's irrelevant.

jwz: Palm's App Catalog, part 2 | https://www.jwz.org/
Echoes of the App Store?
We still really have no idea what this second-class-citizen app catalog will look like, since they say it won't exist for two to three months. That means it doesn't help those of us who have working apps today that we would like to get into the hands of our users today, but it's a step in the right direction, assuming that getting things into the second-class-citizen catalog is a whole lot easier than getting it into the "real" catalog has been so far. (It won't surprise you to learn that based on their past behavior, I don't think that's a particularly likely assumption. But we'll see.)

But this is all needlessly complicated.

Here's what I want:

A developer makes the executable of their application available on their own web site.
A user visits the developer's web site via the web browser on their phone, and clicks on the link.
A dialog box asks, "Are you sure you want to do this crazy thing?"
The application installs. Done.

That's how it worked on PalmOS. That's how it works on desktop computers! Anything more complicated than that is just stupid.

The CADT Model | https://www.jwz.org/
This is, I think, the most common way for my bug reports to open source software projects to ever become closed. I report bugs; they go unread for a year, sometimes two; and then (surprise!) that module is rewritten from scratch -- and the new maintainer can't be bothered to check whether his new version has actually solved any of the known problems that existed in the previous version.

I'm so totally impressed at this Way New Development Paradigm. Let's call it the "Cascade of Attention-Deficit Teenagers" model, or "CADT" for short.

Dispatch in Two Parts: The Arab Body Writes Itself In | Boston Review | https://bostonreview.net/
In a recent Guardian interview the Libyan-British writer Hisham Matar says, “International literature remains hugely underrated and, as a side effect, English books are often overrated. About 1.5% of books published in the UK and 3% of those published in the USA are works in translation. And the sales are often dismally modest. This impoverishes culture and nourishes narcissism. Put very simply, it is boring and dangerous.” Narcissim here can also be read as imperialism.
