comment Make a Docker application write to stdout
The one thing that's a problem with this is when the thing you're running insists on forking itself to the background as a non-root process. I'm having this with squid3, and it then has trouble with permissions on /dev/stdout.

comment What to use as an installer bootstrap?
GRML's most svelte iso is still almost 200MB. It's not out of the question, but I'm just surprised there isn't something tiny out there which does exactly this.

Very interesting. The need has passed at this point, but when I next encounter this, I'll give it a try.

comment How do I preseed a simple RAID5 setup on Ubuntu Server?
Hmm, I'm disappointed this question was closed. I would have thought that preseeding a basic RAID configuration would be the type of information others might find useful.

comment How to write ISO image to usb memory stick from linux command-line?
Ack... not quite. This method loads the filesystem, but it doesn't seem to make the drive bootable the Startup Disk Creator tool does (with the same ISO).
