Enabling C++11 And Later In CMake
Projects will also probably want to set the following too:

On some platforms, this results in linking to a different library (e.g. -std=c++11 rather than -std=gnu++11). The default behavior is for C++ extensions to be enabled (credit to ajneu in the comments for pointing out this particular variable and its effects). It is important to be consistent in whether or not extensions are enabled when linking targets, as mixing different settings can result in trying to mix standard library implementations (dangerous at best).

Border Patrol Agents Attempted to Delete Racist Posts
The scrubbing began quickly. At 10:55 a.m., ProPublica published a story reporting the existence of a secret, invitation-only Facebook group for current and former Border Patrol agents that featured vulgar, violent, and misogynistic content directed at migrants and lawmakers.

A little over two hours later, Rep. Bennie G. Thompson, chair of the House Committee on Homeland Security, called for active-duty agents responsible for the posts to lose their jobs. Minutes after that, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the agency that oversees the Border Patrol, said in a tweet that the inspector general’s office at the Department of Homeland Security was “immediately informed” of the “disturbing social media activity,” and an internal investigation has been launched.

Back in the “I’m 10-15” Facebook group, evidence that might inform such an investigation was quickly disappearing. The name of the group — radio lingo Border Patrol agents use when they take a migrant into custody — was changed to “America First X 2,” and the group was archived.

So in conclusion:

Use TIMESTAMP WITH TIME ZONE so that you get a time zone in your retrieved values, and don’t worry because one isn’t being stored.
Use timezone=UTC in the connection URL so that the time zone you get in your retrieved values is the one you want, UTC.
Convert the time.Time values to whatever time zone you want for display purposes.

Lightweight Docker Images in 5 Steps - Semaphore
Being a compiled language, Elixir has a nice property that the resulting compiled binaries are self-contained, and can pretty much run on any Linux distribution. This is when the alpine image becomes an awesome candidate.

The base image is only 5 MB, and if you compile your Elixir application, you can achieve images that are only around 25 MB in size. This is awesome comparing to the 1.5 GB beast from the beginning of our Docker journey.

With Go, which we also use occasionally, we could go even further and build an image FROM scratch, and achieve 5 MB-sized images.

Docker and the PID 1 zombie reaping problem
Let's look at a concrete example. Suppose that your container contains a web server that runs a CGI script that's written in bash. The CGI script calls grep. Then the web server decides that the CGI script is taking too long and kills the script, but grep is not affected and keeps running. When grep finishes, it becomes a zombie and is adopted by the PID 1 (the web server). The web server doesn't know about grep, so it doesn't reap it, and the grep zombie stays in the system.

Every time a process exits even though it has child processes, it's expecting the init process to perform the cleanup later on.

So how does this relate to Docker? Well, we see that a lot of people run only one process in their container, and they think that when they run this single process, they're done. But most likely, this process is not written to behave like a proper init process. That is, instead of properly reaping adopted processes, it's probably expecting another init process to do that job, and rightly so.

When building Docker containers, you should be aware of the PID 1 zombie reaping problem. That problem can cause unexpected and obscure-looking issues when you least expect it. This article explains the PID 1 problem, explains how you can solve it, and presents a pre-built solution that you can use: Baseimage-docker.

Consider Nginx as an example, which daemonizes into the background by default. This works as follows. First, Nginx creates a child process. Second, the original Nginx process exits. Third, the Nginx child process is adopted by the init process.

Orphaned process adoption

You may see where I am going. The operating system kernel automatically handles adoption, so this means that the kernel expects the init process to have a special responsibility: the operating system expects the init process to reap adopted children too.

This is a very important responsibility in Unix systems. It is such a fundamental responsibility that many many pieces of software are written to make use of this. Pretty much all daemon software expect that daemonized child processes are adopted and reaped by init.

Refused to execute inline script because it violates the following Content Security Policy · Issue #430 · turbolinks/turbolinks
I have a similar issue when requesting a .js.erb template after a Turbolinks visit.

I use rails-ujs (5.2.1) and turbolinks (5.2.0) and I have the csp_meta_tag set in my layout head.

What I understand of the problem, is that after a Turbolinks visit, the csp-nonce meta tag isn't updated in the DOM. Then, if a request to a .js.erb template is made, the js code will be injected inside an inline script by the rails-ujs library but with an outdated csp-nonce content.

A solution is to avoid to regenerate a csp nonce when it is a turbolinks request (what you did in your second solution). Then the csp-nonce content in the DOM and the one used server side stay synchronized.

Your first solution works, because setting "data-turbolinks-track": :reload and nonce: true together force a page reload on every turbolinks visit (as the javascript tag changed with the nonce). Which update the csp-nonce content but break the Turbolinks "magic".

However, it feels like a better solution would be to update the csp meta tag after a turbolink visit, but I have no solution for this yet.

security - How can bcrypt have built-in salts? - Stack Overflow
Stored in the database, a bcrypt "hash" might look something like this:


This is actually three fields, delimited by "$":

2a identifies the bcrypt algorithm version that was used.
10 is the cost factor; 210 iterations of the key derivation function are used (which is not enough, by the way. I'd recommend a cost of 12 or more.)
