What have I been reading this week? (20160717)

Having issues getting Windows installed in a Xen VM. Will try XenServer 7.0 next. Issue may be with my hardware (odd make DVD drive), though it does work with Virtualbox.

Crossed the 5000 document mark this week (for docs in the document management engine). Processing seems to be okay, though midnight re-indexing is taking longer. May need to switch to differential indexing and moving full indexing to a longer periodicity (weekly/monthly?). It took roughly the first year to enter 500 docs and the second year to enter the next 1000. The remainder have been entered in the last six months, thanks to a bit of automation. Most articles are "captures" via PrintFriendly, which employs a common format where some metadata can be easily extracted. Makes adding docs a bit less of a manual process.

In any case, here's what I've been reading this past week.
