Between our dense tree canopies and our beloved cloud cover, fall is a great time of year to explore Seattle. But the season can be a mixed bag, with anything from latent summer sun to big, frosty snow dumps, so versatility is key.

Thankfully, our museums are warm and plentiful. Many of our 465—count ‘em!—city parks provide both indoor and outdoor space. And fall, with its cooler but often still-mild weather, is still a great time for a walk, hike, or bike ride.

No matter what the day is like, these 26 locations chosen by Curbed editors for the spring edition of our Seattle Pocket Guide have you covered, featuring the city’s most iconic buildings, parks, public art, and more for you to visit.

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, where we explore what you can rent for a certain dollar amount in Seattle. We found five listings within $100 of today’s price: $1,500.

The latest version of the Kubernetes container orchestration system, Kubernetes 1.16, brings improvements related to customization and extensibility, container storage management, the metrics registry, and Windows container support. In addition, the new release removes a number of deprecated API versions

What’s new in Kubernetes 1.16

Kubernetes 1.16, released in September 2019, contains the following new and revised features:
  • Custom resource definitions (CRDs), the long-recommended mechanism for extending Kubernetes functionality introduced in Kubernetes 1.7, are now officially a generally available feature. CRDs have already been widely used by third parties. With the move to GA, many optional-but-recommended behaviors are now required by default to keep the APIs stable.
  • Many changes have been made to how volumes are handled. Chief among them is moving the volume resizing API, found in the Container Storage Interface (CSI), to beta.
  • Kubeadm now has alpha support for joining Windows worker nodes to an existing cluster. The long-term goal here is to make Windows and Linux nodes both first-class citizens in a cluster, instead of having only a partial set of behaviors for Windows.
  • CSI plug-in support is now available in alpha for Windows nodes, so those systems can start using the same range of storage plug-ins as Linux nodes.
  • A new feature, Endpoint Slices, allows for greater scaling of clusters and more flexibility in handling network addresses. Endpoint Slices are now available as an alpha test feature.
  • The way metrics are handled continues a major overhaul with Kubernetes 1.16. Some metrics are being renamed or deprecated to bring them more in line with Prometheus. The plan is to remove all deprecated metrics by Kubernetes 1.17.

The words “we are all in this together” announce themselves in bold,sans-serif force, asserting the urgency and agency of the message. Created byartist Mark Mumford in 2002, the work—whose title is the same as the text—wascreated in the context of and in response to the protests that took placebefore the Bush administration’s invasion of Iraq in 2003.

As with many artists who work with language, Mumford is interested inthe slippages of syntax and the ways in which words carry a multitude ofmeanings. In the case of We Are All inThis Together, the message can be read as either empowering and uplifting,or apathetic and resigned. For the artist, “meaning hovers on the threshold ofrealization, and where the knotty relationships between seeing and reading,reading and believing, believing and seeing are given a full and livelyexpression.”

Currently on view in the Brotman Forum, the work transforms the entrance of the Seattle Art Museum into a shared textual experience that is visible from the outside of the museum as well. Though made over 15 years ago, the work carries more political significance than ever. The words especially ring true today—a day designated for climate strikes around the world—when millions of people will march for urgent climate action. As is the case with any issue, we can choose either action or resignation; whichever you choose, there’s no denying that we are all in this together.

“Customers are likely to see messages being deferred by the Mimecast MTA’

Mimecast, a company that specialises in email continuity and resilience, said today it is suffering a service outage – and initially proceeded to point those affected to an updates page that was also unavailable.

The company, which claims to have 296 billion emails under management, said at 16:30 BST: “Mimecast can confirm that we are investigating a service disruption that may result in messages being deferred by our MTAs for US-hosted customers.

It added: “Additionally, customers may intermittently not be able to access Mimecast applications or links protected by our Web Security or TTP services.  We are continuing to investigate and will post further updates here.”

The company drew immediate flak from users on social media after posting its initial status update to its Mimecaster Central Community – which was also down.

The company soon corrected this, but users were quick to point out that the company needs a separate public status page. 

Mimecast is aware of a service disruption that is impacting email processing and access to our applications. We are investigating and will post updates to the Mimecaster Central Community.

— Mimecast (@Mimecast) September 19, 2019

Mimecast describes its raison d’être as to “mitigate the significant business disruption that email failure or downtime causes.” It provides a service that allows email continuity for Microsoft Outlook and other email users.

Computer Business Review has contacted the company for further information on the cause of the outage, which it first reported at 16:10 BST.

In an 17:00 BST update the company added: “While email traffic is being processed, customers are likely to see messages being deferred by the Mimecast MTA’s [message transfer agents], and our applications and services may be intermittently unavailable.  We apologize for the inconvenience and are working to resolve this behavior.
