In the R13 upgrade the announcements panel seems to have taken a retrograde step. It used to have a solid white background, have rounded corners and a semi-transparent border, and the contents of the announcement were indented nicely. Something like this:

announcements in r12

In R13 we’ve lost the border, the rounded corners, the opaque background and the indent on the contents. It now looks like this:

We do have the option of switching to a banner layout, (more...)

The Struggles of Personalization in ADF

A Mike Heeren & Richard Olrichs co-production

ADF comes with the out-of-the-box features of personalization. This means that whenever you configure personalisation, users can persist changes they make to the application across sessions and personalize their experience with the application. We have seen that this feature can also confuse some of our users, so it is not always wise to use this. It depends on the use case you have. However, when recently implementing personalization (more...)

Docker: Network configuration: How to customize the network bridge and use my own subnet / netmask / CiDR

In my last posting i described how to configure the network settings of a container via docker command line:
--net none

Now i want to try to change the subnet from the standard 172.17.0.0/16 to another ip range.

There are some tutorials out there which say:

docker run -it  --net bridge  --fixed-cidr "10.100.0.0/24"  alpine /bin/ash
unknown flag: --fixed-cidr
but this doesa not work any more.
