Re: Containers, otherwise known as installing apps for dummies.
Apparently the correct way to do this would be to create a new container that has the most recent version of the software and to (somehow) migrate the old data to it.
Well, you wouldn't have your data in the same docker instance that has the apps. That's a recipe for data loss and disaster, as docker containers' data is ephemeral - unless you use a "data" container :)
You'd then want to have two containers: one "app" container, and one "data" container (below the turtles, that's just a directory...). You then launch the "code" container, telling Docker to mount the other "data" container inside it.
When you need to upgrade or whatever, then it's only a matter of updating the "app" container, and assuming the updated version can work with the old data, you're set.
Think about a MySQL docker instance. The "app" Dockerfile would contain "mysqld", and the static "my.cnf" whereas the "data" container would contain the equivalent of /var/lib/mysql - the actual data. Need to migrate from v5.0.0 to v5.0.1? No problem. shut down the app instance for 5.0.0, create a new container with 5.0.1, start it with the data container you used for 5.0.0. If the upgrade process works, you're set ;)
Yeah, POSTing something containing /etc/passwd is blocked by Cloudflare's intrusion detection systems.
One trick is to use a zero-width space.
Eh, I'd love to have helped, but it's been a while since that request which gave you that error - which makes it hard for me to actually find it.
This is the sort of thing you should be emailing us at webmaster@ with tons more details, such as the IP address, headers, etc… as that'd help us get quickly to it.
Right now, best I can guess is that you triggered their robot sensors…
Re: New Forum Wishlist - but read roadmap first
The "custom" fonts for Channel are defined in the main CSS. What problem are you experiencing with those fonts?

The pre-filled "mailto:" links? I'm very curious has to how this happens to you. Could you get more info and get in touch at webmaster@ ? Cheers!
Damn, I really thought that scheduling this stuff out of hours would've helped!
But no, there's *always* a commentard (or two) lying in wait! ;)

We got a weird cascade issue due to _one_ bad post and our error handler didn't put the message aside & continue processing the other messages, deciding to die instead.
So every few mins it got restarted again, maybe processed a few messages/upvotes, certainly encountered the deadly one and died again.
I'm now naming it Marvin.
Apologies, this have been fixed now!
Yup, Sunday database shuffling caused new forums & updates to not be shown for a little while
Re: Problem with this sites CSS?
Belated reply, but the site's fonts on Channel subdomains was fixed a few weeks ago
➤ curl 'http://winhelp2002.mvps.org/hosts.txt' 2>/dev/null | grep -e theregister -e channelregister
Looks like they rectified it?

Re: https on the images
Damn, that was quick of you to notice! :)
If you don't disallow the images, and you use a recent enough browser (which is able to speak SPDY) you should notice most/all images should now load in parallel!
Well, the main site might take a wee tad longer, but again we're Working On It ;)

Re: El Reg has jumped on the bandwagon
We hear you, we hear you!
Both are on the roadmap, and have been for a while. Neither is a quick & easy thing to do, though, compared to the simple:
+ add_header X-Clacks-Overhead "GNU Terry Pratchett";
Re: El Reg has jumped on the bandwagon
Sorry, we don't like replying to HEAD requests. I'm sure there's a joke in there somewhere?
➤ curl -sI http://www.theregister.co.uk/ | grep HTTP
HTTP/1.1 405 Method Not Allowed
so… you've got to go the long way around:
➤ curl -v 'http://www.theregister.co.uk/2015/03/18/sir_terry_pratchett_http_header/' -o /dev/null 2>&1 | grep X-
< X-Reg-BOFH: pfy
< X-Clacks-Overhead: GNU Terry Pratchett
Oh $deity, this brings back memories of writing an AT command parser… argh

Re: Its just an ISP
Here in fancy Edinburgh, their graph (http://noc.enta.net/21cn-interconnect-status/) was at 0 flat.
In other places it had a bit of connectivity, just that tiny bit... here, nada. Zero. Zilch.
Had to try phoning their support more than 30 times to even get to receive the pre-recorded message saying there was a known fault and they were investigating. All the other calls either mysteriously disconnected or gave me the weird "There's been a fault" message.
Luckily it all came back ~8:20pm.
Re: Enta outage
Could you tell me which brand adsl modem do you have that works _properly_ with Enta's ipv6 allocation? It's manual (gave me a /56 and a gateway) and not DHCPv6, and my self-described "IPv6 capable" Zoom ADSL router/modem unfortunately (and after several chats & phone calls with Zoom) only supports DHCPv6 properly (allegedly). Any pointer - any - would be appreciated! my surname at gmail if you could :)
