    1. If you know me, you know I always say that computer networking is a miracle that only holds together by duct tape, prayers of engineers, and dumb luck.

      where-in the author argues that devices should be kept off the internet & should not have their own internet addresses. which, is, well, conventional & safe, yes. but i tire of this stalemate. i very much would like devices to be connectable.

      yes you need dual rules. alas, the legacy world haunts us.

    1. On a user-defined bridge network, containers can resolve each other by name or alias.But, The containers on the default bridge network can only access each other by IP addresses, unless you use the --link option, which is considered legacy.

    1. Whilst Svelte is a web-project, it should work on the web. The web is unfortunately still plagued by garbage like (Legacy) Edge and IE.

    1. In my opinion, because Webpack was one of the first bundlers, is heavily packed with features, and has to support swathes of legacy code and legacy module systems, it can make configuring Webpack cumbersome and challenging to use. Over the years, I’ve written package managers, compilers, and bundlers, and I still find configuring Webpack to be messy and unintuitive.

    1. Labels like this don't help the student, they only help the evaluation staff. I'm not sure what the best solution is for indicating someone's literacy on a form so others are aware when teaching the student but labeling a student with 'low' anything is going to have negative connotations that endure.

    1. seismic trail

      Industry blazed a trail, rather physically, across the North. Big oil companies came in, ran tests, drilled wherever they pleased, and left scars on the fragile landscape. Before they could drill though, they had to find out where the oil was and to do so, seismic crews would do a survey of the area using what is called the single line method. “This method required the use of several tracked vehicles in a caravan, setting off blasts and collecting the data from them, and gashing vast stretches of the Arctic landscape” (114). These trails are what Berger is referring to and they are very much still visible today, decades after being created. The seismic testing left an impact on the physical substrate and the vegetation growing on it. The trails “are physical legacies of the ways multinational oil companies, governmental policies, and geological science combined to enroll Arctic nature into global energy economies. To those who know their full history, though, they are also a reminder of how ecological disturbance became a focal point for scientific and Inuit activism in the 1960s and 1970s” (115). As Berger goes on to say, the land itself could be, and was, taken from the native people and they are reminded every day of that when they see these trails.
