Real Programmers Don't Use PASCAL

Back in the good old days -- the "Golden Era" of computers,  it
was easy to separate the men from the boys (sometimes called "Real Men"
and "Quiche  Eaters"  in the literature).  During this period, the Real
Men were the ones that understood computer programming, and the  Quiche
Eaters were  the  ones  that  didn't.   A real computer programmer said
things like "DO 10 I=1,10" and "ABEND" (they actually talked in capital
letters, you understand), and the rest of the world  said  things  like
"computers are too complicated for me" and "I can't relate to computers
-- they're  so  impersonal".

An interesting thread


I'm hearing about Docker every other day, but when I look into it, I don't understand the purpose of it.

I run many websites/applications that need isolation from each other on a single server, but I just use the pretty-standard OpenVZ containers to deal with that (yes I know I could use KVM servers instead, but I haven't ran into any issues with VZ so far).

What's the difference between Docker and normal virtualization technology (OpenVZ/KVM)? Are there any good examples of when and where to use Docker over something like OpenVZ?

http://lesswrong.com

Less Wrong is an online community for people who want to apply the discovery of biases like the conjunction fallacythe affect heuristic, and scope insensitivity in order to improve their own thinking.

Bayesian reasoning offers a way to improve on the native human reasoning style. Reasoning naively, we tend not to seek alternative explanations, and sometimes underrate the influence of prior probabilities in Bayes' theorem.

Less Wrong users aim to develop accurate predictive models of the world, and change their mind when they find evidence disconfirming those models, instead of being able to explain anything.
