Welcome to 🎉 🥳 🥁 🥇 the 200th edition of VSHN.timer! 📰 🏆 📯 🎆 Every Monday since August 2019, 5 links related to Kubernetes, OpenShift, CI / CD, and DevOps; all links shared on our chat, making us think, laugh, or simply work better.
Can you believe this? 200? We already couldn’t believe it on July 19th, 2021, when we reached the 100th mark, and look where we are now. 200 weeks of keeping the pace with this crazy industry of ours, with new frameworks, conferences, lots of Kubernetes, too many security breaches for our taste, more Kubernetes, plenty of hyperscalers competing, all kinds of programming languages, … and also lots of music references!
What could we possibly talk about this week? Well, we have so many short & sweet URLs on our chat that we decided to share some with you. Ordered from the shortest to the longest.
1. First one with the
.dev TLD: Modern software assumes your systems have access to the Internet because reasons. This may work 99% of the time (hopefully), but certain systems need to work even when disconnected (shocking!). Zarf keeps your software running, no matter your connection status. Impressive.
2. Then one with the
.land TLD: Curious exactly what happens when you run a program on your computer? Read this article to learn how multiprocessing works, what system calls really are, how computers manage memory with hardware interrupts, and how Linux loads executables. Fascinating.
3. An important one with the
.org TLD: on August 10th, 2023, with no notice or community input, HashiCorp switched the license for Terraform from the MPL to the Business Source License, a non-open source license. Enter the OpenTF Foundation to the rescue!
4. This one with the
.page TLD: Downfall attacks target a critical weakness found in billions of modern processors used in personal and cloud computers. This vulnerability, identified as CVE-2022-40982, enables a user to access and steal data from other users who share the same computer. Yikes.
5. And finally, one with the
.software TLD: Copyright and licensing is difficult, especially when reusing software from different projects that are released under different licenses. REUSE was started by the Free Software Foundation Europe to provide a set of recommendations to make licensing your Free Software projects easier. Thanks!

Quirky Music References in the Title or the Content 🙃 (8):
Do you like music references in the titles of VSHN.timer editions? What subject would you like us to talk about in the future? Would you like to share your preferred URLs and links with our readers? Are you even reading these questions at the end? Do you think we should offer a prize to those who read until the end? Don’t you think that reading until the end is a valuable yet underrated skill? How are you doing today? Thanks for reading! As usual, get in touch with us, let us know your opinion about VSHN.timer, and see you next week for the 201th edition (whaaaaaaaaaaat) of… VSHN.timer.
