Here are some sites I wish I found earlier about a number of different topics:
Docker on Windows May 7th, 2019:
I’m not even sure why this is here ^
I can’t get docker to work again… I forgot which specific instruction actually get docker to run on my machine.
This is the error:
docker run -it --rm timmyreilly/cheers2019
C:\Program Files\Docker\Docker\Resources\bin\docker.exe: error during connect: Post http://%2F%2F.%2Fpipe%2Fdocker_engine/v1.40/containers/create: open //./pipe/docker_engine: The system cannot find the file specified. In the default daemon configuration on Windows, the docker client must be run elevated to connect. This error may also indicate that the docker daemon is not running.
Okay, had to do an elaborate uninstall of docker:
First tried uninstalling Docker Desktop in “Add or Remove Apps” < that's what I search in windows. Then did ran this powershell script: https://github.com/docker/for-win/issues/515#issuecomment-281819259 Then did a regedit: https://success.docker.com/article/dockerforwin-install-fails-on-installationmanifestjson Then I did a reinstall of docker desktop. Now the docker whale is back in my taskbar flyout thing. And we're back in business. Kafka Cat May 7th, 2019: https://medium.com/@coderunner/debugging-with-kafkacat-df7851d21968/
