How to improve HTC HD2? Use energy ROM!

I'm really satisfied with my cell phone HTC HD2. I've bought the device in February and I truly like the change, the innovation.

Logically, I've started to consider flash HD2 by one of many ROM's developed by guys around xda-developers.

There were three main reasons why I did it.
  • the device suffers by child ailment like wrong delivering of SMS. I've no time to watch and search forums and apply released patches
  • there are a lot of handful applications around HD2
  • there are a lot kinds of settings, it's hard to fine tune the device
The most widely known rom is the Energy rom.

What do you need to do to flash your device? There are two simple steps described in details within the article. Note that you should make the all flash stuff on the notebook to prevent against the blackout.

What the energy ROM brings me?

  • I have got the updated device all the time as I'm flashing it couple times per month. The rom contains almost 40 applications, see the complete list
  • HD2 keeps alive almost three days per one charge! This is the best improvement at all
  • the fine tuned and fresh graphic of sense environment, see screenshots, note that there are seven different graphics designs!
  • the fine tuned environment, all applications works together in the complete bundle
  • the whole device is faster, this is the main reason why "energy" :-)
 NRGZ28 made and is making the great work, I like it and I appreciate that! I also have to admit that sometimes the HD2 went down without any reason but it happen a few times.

Http and TCP Load Balancing with Kubernetes

Kubernetes allows to manage large clusters which are composed of docker containers. And where is large computation power there is large amount of data throughput. However, there is still a need to spread the data throughput so it can reach and utilize particular docker container(s). This is called load balancingKubernetes supports two basic forms of load balancing. Internal among docker containers themselves and external for clients which call you application from outside environment - just users.


Internal Load Balancing with Kubernetes Usual approach during the modeling of an application in kubernetes is to provide domain models for pods, replications controllers and services. Look at the great documentation if you are not aware of all these principles.

For simplification, pod is a set of docker containers which are always located on the same node. Replication controller allows and guarantees scalability. The last but not least is the service which hides all instances of pods - cre…

Validating nginx config file using docker approach

I try to setup nginx as a load balancer. The configuration is just a file with a lot of constrains so I need a validation. There is no online validation service, as e.g. CoreOS has, and I don't want to install nginx on my laptop as I work on a distributed app.

Docker is right approach for me. Let say I have following config:


In short, I'm going to pass nginx config to running nginx instance and look to the logs.

Put you nginx.config to the temp and start the docker image:

sudo docker run --name nginx -v /tmp/nginx.config:/etc/nginx/nginx.conf:ro -d nginx It uses volume mapping so the command just starts a new docker container and mounts a local /tmp/nginx.config to the given in-container path. You can obviously change the volume path to your personal path. Is it working or not? Look at logs.

sudo docker logs nginx If there is no entry, your file is fine. In the case of an error, you can see something like this:
