JDownloader: hotfile, rapidshare best downloader

I was used Free download manager to download my favorite TV series (e.g. IT Crowd or new interesting BBC's Sherlock) from well know data storages, like rapidshare or hotfile. I've tried JDownloader and I'm really impressed all those features which the tools provides in comparison with standard lightweight managers.


Interesting features
  • you can only copy links to download into the clipboard at your favorite forum, switch the focus back to JDownloader, it automatically use these links as datasource, add them into link grabber and than check their online status (if they are downloadable)! You can see their availability in a few seconds
  • support the usage of huge amount of paid accounts. You simply add your credentials into system, add links and it works - download files - you need obviously possess these accounts :-) 
  • build in extract support - if you add links to the data spread into more rars, the JDownloader's plugin can unrar them after successful download and even delete them when unrar is finally done
  • using pair and free account together - assume that you add two simultaneous downloads and trying to download another file placed on the same storage. JDownloader tries to use free account, wait until the captcha succeeded and download the last one via free account
  • JDownloader also creates container and directory wrapping each download so all files are not downloaded into one directory but spreads into new one according to the downloanded file names
  • great plugin support, automatic computer shutdown is supported too. JDownloader can be also up-dated by fine online updater, it simply download all new system parts or plugins
Downsides? Are you still waiting even with paid account?

I was about to uninstall JDownloader because it always waits even if I correctly set up the pair rapidshare account! What happen? Although I inserted credentials, I didn't enable this account globally for the whole application so JDownloader tries to download all files through free account. Rear. Described global switch is that small check button at the left down application corner.

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:
