What have I been reading this week? (20160515)

Working hard on the RPi3 review and finding out (the hard way) that 1 GB still isn't enough. Have worked my way through updating Docker to v1.11 (doesn't work well as a number of things are missing from the ARM build script), have built out Bitlbee with almost all plugins (it randomly crashes just like the x86 machines!), and am now working my way through setting up a homegrown jukebox based on Savonet/Liquidsoap. Still have about 5 weeks to go so, if there's ample time, will probably be running other stuff on it (Traccar, Squeezebox, etc.).

Call me paranoid, but I think my new favorite author (Charles Stross, whom I'm currently binge reading) has visited a few of my places of employment (or his commenters have). Take a gander at the classic workplace sabotage article!
