          New: The Challenges of 'Improving' the Modern Death Penalty   
In his dissent in McCleskey v. Kemp, Justice William Brennan turned a famous phrase that has long resonated with criminal justice reformers. In upholding Georgia’s capital sentencing system, the majority expressed concern about Eighth Amendment claims based on statistics revealing racial disparities in the application of the death penalty, fearing that such claims “would open the door to widespread challenges to all aspects of criminal sentencing.” Justice Brennan lamented that “on its face, such a statement seems to suggest a fear of too much justice.” Disconcertingly, almost everyone seriously involved in debates over the modern administration of death penalty seemingly has a fear of too much capital justice. This essay seeks to explain this practical reality of modern death penalty advocacy in order to spotlight the problems it necessarily creates for any sustained efforts to improve the modern death penalty. By unpacking the fear of too much capital justice among capital ...

          Publishing test app is deploying to production app even app id set to test environment   

The reported behavior started on Wednesday June 28th when we attempted to update our test app.  We confirmed the application identifier matched our test app.  The publish ended updating both the production app in App Distribution as well as downloading the test app to all our devices with the prod app installed hence causing disruptions for our prod users.  We addressed it by publishing another version of the prod app to bring our users back online.

 

Is it possible this is related to the system wide interruptions Telerik experienced at start of the week?  It appears the test app application identifier somehow was 'routing' to the prod app during publish on June 28th.  We've been hesitant to publish the test app again in the event it affects prod app.  We wanted to wait for your comments first before we try another approach.

Kickstarter success RuuviTag is now available, first batch almost gone overnight

A Finnish startup by the name Ruuvi introduced its Bluetooth beacon project to the internet in a Kickstarter campaign last summer. In mere hours the campaign was funded and in the end it crushed its goal with pre-orders exceeding $170 000.

Now the company has officially released the product, which according to their press release came quicker than expected. Since yesterday's launch RuuviTag has been selling like hotcakes. The founder of Ruuvi, Lauri Jämsä, told us that the demand has been so high that the supply has almost been depleted.

In the upcoming batches the company aims more and more in the B2B markets where orders might exceed a thousand units.

RuuviTag is a small Bluetooth 4.2 beacon that has radio and NFC connectivity as well as a multitude of sensors that can measure temperature, relative air humidity, air pressure, and acceleration. It can be used as a Eddystone or iBeacon, and the RuuviLab community has already created a variety of applications, including the likes of portable weather station and vehicle locator. Of course because it's open source platform anyone can join in.

You can buy RuuviTag's from the company's website where they sell for 69 euros (approx. $79) per 3 beacons plus shipping.

          Create File Dialog with 'Open from vault' capability using VBA   

Hey guys,

 

I developed a program for the company I work for to export a formatted bill of materials from an Inventor assembly file. Currently, I have a 'Use active assembly' option and also a 'Browse for file' option. Unfortunately, when you browse for assemblies, the file dialog can only look for local files. In the program, I current use Application.FileDialog(msoFileDialogFilePicker) for creating the file dialog. I recently found a chunk of code that launches an Open file dialog that looks exactly like the one you get when pressing Open from the GUI. The only problem is that the little Open from Vault commandbutton is not on the VBA launched, Inventor style, file dialog. Is there a way to mimic what is launched from the GUI. I basically want to give the users the ability to open assemblies from the Vault that are not on their workspace.

 

Here is the code I found:

Public Sub TestFileDialog()

    'Inventor style open dialog
    
    
    'Create a new FileDialog object.
    Dim oFileDlg As FileDialog
    Call ThisApplication.CreateFileDialog(oFileDlg)
    
    ' Define the filter to select part and assembly files or any file.
    oFileDlg.Filter = "Inventor Files(*.iam;*.ipt)|*.iam;*.ipt|All Files (*.*)|*.*"
    
    
    ' Define the part and assembly files filter to be the default filter.
    oFileDlg.FilterIndex = 1
    
    ' Set the title for the dialog.
    oFileDlg.DialogTitle = "Open File Test"
    
    ' Set the initial directory that will be displayed in the dialog.
    oFileDlg.InitialDirectory = "C:\Temp"
        
    'Set the flag so an error will be raised if the user clicks the Cancel button.
    oFileDlg.CancelError = True

    ' Show the open dialog.  The same procedure is also used for the Save dialog.
    ' The commented code can be used for the Save dialog.
    On Error Resume Next
    oFileDlg.ShowOpen
    'oFileDlg.ShowSave
    
    ' If an error was raised, the user clicked cancel, otherwise display the filename.
    If Err Then
        MsgBox "User cancelled out of Dialog"
    ElseIf oFileDlg.Filename <> "" Then
        MsgBox "File " & oFileDlg.Filename & " was selected."
    End If
End Sub

Is there a property that can be set so the Open from Vault commandbutton appears on the file dialog?

 

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

          Simulate left click, API textbox Movement   

Hello everyone, I'm having trouble getting textboxes created by AddFitted or AddByRectangle to work with the movesketchobjects and RotateSketchObjects methods.

I have code that I wrote that moves textboxes in an assembly based on the origin of a textbox and the rotation of a textbox in API and moves the textboxes to a location above a component.

 

The code worked just fine with the User Interface created textboxes, but not the  API created textboxes. The Idea is that someone could delete one of the textboxes and then the illogic would look through each of the sketches, check the formatted text of each of the textboxes, create the textboxes that are missing, and capture the textbox indices for moving the textbox later in the code... And I can confirm that it does that.

 

The Problem is that even though inventor knows where the textbox is, and can spit out what text is in the textbox and display it in a message box. Despite not missing any of the necessary parameters the move sketch objects method doesn't move it...

 

Changing the API textboxes "Rotation" Property does work, but only allows me to turn it 90 degrees, compared to the Rotate Sketch Objects method that   would allow me to rotate it any amount that I need to. (I'm using a wingdings 3 Arrow)

 

Anyway I was thinking if I could somehow use the user command "sketch text" or  " ThisApplication.CommandManager.ControlDefinitions.Item("AppTextWrapperCmd")" through Ilogic I might be able to get around my problem...

However I don't know how to convince Inventor that I left clicked inside the Sketch.

 

Does anyone know how to do this? Either Simulating left clicking in inventor or a work around for moving API textboxes?

 

If you do, that would be a lot of help.

 

Thank you!

 

(Sorry, it's my first post.)

          Custom Bom Export to excel template   

Hello All! I have been gaining a lot of knowledge from using this forum but I need some help exporting an Inventor BOM.

 

My employer uses a standard excel template that all manufactured parts are entered into. (We use this for standard or custom jobs). I have attached that template here. The goal is to loop through the top level assembly and place the description in the G cells starting at G4, the Rev starting at F4, and the PN starting at E4. The top level assy will be made up of subassemblies (all I-Assemblies) whose node names at the top level are 101,102,103, etc. The program has to loop thru 101, enter the node name in the column header, enter all the qtys for that section in the j column, then 102 and put the parts in K column, etc. If a bracket is used in 101 and 102 then the program has to look thru the spreadsheet and rather than enter it on a new line, it needs to place the qty in the correct column.

 

My first stab was to look in the help files. I found the loop portion that looks through all BomRows one item at a time. I see the ItemQuantity variable but can't seem to access it. For now I was just trying to see if I could get a simple message box to appear. (error: object required. ---didn't I declare the object a few lines before?) See bolded below.

 

Public Sub BOMQuery()
    ' Set a reference to the assembly document.
    ' This assumes an assembly document is active.
    Dim oDoc As AssemblyDocument
    Set oDoc = ThisApplication.ActiveDocument

    Dim FirstLevelOnly As Boolean
    If MsgBox("First level only?", vbYesNo) = vbYes Then
        FirstLevelOnly = True
    Else
        FirstLevelOnly = False
    End If
   
    ' Set a reference to the BOM
    Dim oBOM As BOM
    Set oBOM = oDoc.ComponentDefinition.BOM
   
    ' Set whether first level only or all levels.
    If FirstLevelOnly Then
        oBOM.StructuredViewFirstLevelOnly = True
    Else
        oBOM.StructuredViewFirstLevelOnly = False
    End If
   
    ' Make sure that the structured view is enabled.
    oBOM.StructuredViewEnabled = True
   
    'Set a reference to the "Structured" BOMView
    Dim oBOMView As BOMView
    Set oBOMView = oBOM.BOMViews.Item("Structured")
       
    Debug.Print "Item"; Tab(15); "Quantity"; Tab(30); "Part Number"; Tab(70); "Description"
    Debug.Print "----------------------------------------------------------------------------------"

    'Initialize the tab for ItemNumber

    ItemTab = -3

End Sub

    ItemTab = ItemTab + 3
    ' Iterate through the contents of the BOM Rows.
    Dim i As Long
    For i = 1 To oBOMRows.Count
        ' Get the current row.
        Dim oRow As BOMRow
        Set oRow = oBOMRows.Item(i)

        'Set a reference to the primary ComponentDefinition of the row
        Dim oCompDef As ComponentDefinition
        Set oCompDef = oRow.ComponentDefinitions.Item(1)
        Dim total As Long
        Set total = oRow.ItemQuantity
        MsgBox (total)
        Dim oPartNumProperty As Property
        Dim oDescripProperty As Property

        If TypeOf oCompDef Is VirtualComponentDefinition Then
            'Get the file property that contains the "Part Number"
            'The file property is obtained from the virtual component definition
            Set oPartNumProperty = oCompDef.PropertySets _
                .Item("Design Tracking Properties").Item("Part Number")

            'Get the file property that contains the "Description"
            Set oDescripProperty = oCompDef.PropertySets _
                .Item("Design Tracking Properties").Item("Description")

            Debug.Print Tab(ItemTab); oRow.ItemNumber; Tab(17); oRow.ItemQuantity; Tab(30); _
                oPartNumProperty.Value; Tab(70); oDescripProperty.Value
        Else
            'Get the file property that contains the "Part Number"
            'The file property is obtained from the parent
            'document of the associated ComponentDefinition.
            Set oPartNumProperty = oCompDef.Document.PropertySets _
                .Item("Design Tracking Properties").Item("Part Number")

            'Get the file property that contains the "Description"
            Set oDescripProperty = oCompDef.Document.PropertySets _
                .Item("Design Tracking Properties").Item("Description")

            Debug.Print Tab(ItemTab); oRow.ItemNumber; Tab(17); oRow.ItemQuantity; Tab(30); _
                oPartNumProperty.Value; Tab(70); oDescripProperty.Value
           
            'Recursively iterate child rows if present.
            If Not oRow.ChildRows Is Nothing Then
                Call QueryBOMRowProperties(oRow.ChildRows, ItemTab)
            End If
        End If
    Next
    ItemTab = ItemTab - 3
End Sub

 

 

Any help is appreciated. (I don't expect anyone to write the code for me, I would rather get bits and pieces and stitch it together myself.) The excel portion I have no idea what to do there. I have not written any code to interact with excel from Inventor.

 

ps - can anyone explain what the output of this sample program is from the help files? It doesn't seem to do anything except throw a message box....


          Counting tapped holes   

Hello guys,

 

I have a question about tapped holes. I want to count all tapped holes in a part using iLogic. I'm currently working on a rule that does this and the rule already counts tapped holes and also cuts/extrusions with a thread in them. This is the rule.

 

Dim oDoc As PartDocument = ThisApplication.ActiveDocument
Dim oDef As PartComponentDefinition = oDoc.ComponentDefinition
Dim oHole As HoleFeature
Dim oHoles As HoleFeatures = oDef.Features.HoleFeatures
Dim oThreadFeatures As ThreadFeatures
	oThreadFeatures = oDef.Features.ThreadFeatures
Dim oThreadFeature As ThreadFeature
Dim oThreadInfo As ThreadInfo

'Er zit verschil tussen tapped holes die met de hole functie zijn aangebracht en gaten waar een thread in is aangebracht.
'Deze worden afzonderlijk van elkaar bepaald en bij elkaar opgeteld.

MessageBox.Show(oThreadFeatures.Count, "Aantal threadfeatures")

For Each oHole In oDef.Features.HoleFeatures

If oHole.Tapped = True Then 

i=i+1

End If

Next

MessageBox.Show(i, "aantal tapgaten")

TapgatenTotaal=oThreadFeatures.Count + i

MessageBox.Show(TapgatenTotaal, "Totaal aantal tapgaten")

 

But the holes that are being counted, are all individual holes. When a tapped hole is in a pattern, the rule will count only one hole, the one that is in the model tree above the pattern. I found the rule that is below on the forum to count all holes in a pattern. I tried to modify this rule so it would only count patterns with a tapped hole as parent feature but I couldn't get it to work. I tried the following.

 

If Not (TypeOf oRP.ParentFeatures.Item(1) Is HoleFeature.Tapped) Then Continue For	

 

But this didn't work. I also tried to put all the tapped holes that are recognized in the first rule in a object collection and the run the pattern rule for each hole in the collection but that didn't work either. The rule fills in all the holes that are in the collection in every available pattern so the outcome is way to high.

 

Does anyone know how I can modify the rule (or make a new one) so it only counts tapped holes?

Dim oRectPatterns As RectangularPatternFeatures = oDef.Features.RectangularPatternFeatures

          Run Rule Only When File Containing Rule Is The Active Document   

I have an iLogic rule in an assembly file which shrinkwraps the model and is triggered by the Close Document event.

Problem is the message box also appears when the drawing sheet containing views of this model is closed.

 

Can an iLogic be written to only run the rule when the active document in the graphics is the same document that contains the rule?

 

I have been able to write an iLogic which runs the rule only when the active document is an assembly file but I would like to change this to be the specific file that contains the rule.

 

My current rule is as follows:

 

Sub Main()
Try
Dim oDoc As Document = ThisApplication.ActiveDocument
If oDoc.DocumentType <> DocumentTypeEnum.kAssemblyDocumentObject Then
Exit Sub
Else

Question = MessageBox.Show("Do you wish to shrinkwrap the Fan Drive Assembly now for use in the General Arrangement?", "Fan Drive Assembly",MessageBoxButtons.YesNo)
If Question = vbYes Then

Dim oAsmCompDef As AssemblyComponentDefinition
oAsmCompDef = ThisApplication.ActiveDocument.ComponentDefinition
oAsmCompDef.RepresentationsManager.DesignViewRepresentations.Item("GA - FAN ASSEMBLY VIEW").Activate

Try
    Dim g_App As Inventor.InventorServer = ThisApplication
    Dim AssDoc as Inventor.AssemblyDocument= ThisDoc.Document

    ' Create a new part document that will be the shrinkwrap substitute
    Dim oPartDoc As PartDocument
    oPartDoc = g_App.Documents.Add(DocumentTypeEnum.kPartDocumentObject, , True)

    Dim oPartDef As PartComponentDefinition
    oPartDef = oPartDoc.ComponentDefinition

    Dim oDerivedAssemblyDef As DerivedAssemblyDefinition
    oDerivedAssemblyDef = oPartDef.ReferenceComponents.DerivedAssemblyComponents.CreateDefinition(AssDoc.FullDocumentName)
    ' Set various shrinkwrap related options
    oDerivedAssemblyDef.DeriveStyle = DerivedComponentStyleEnum.kDeriveAsMultipleBodies
    oDerivedAssemblyDef.IncludeAllTopLevelWorkFeatures = DerivedComponentOptionEnum.kDerivedExcludeAll
    oDerivedAssemblyDef.IncludeAllTopLevelSketches = DerivedComponentOptionEnum.kDerivedExcludeAll
    oDerivedAssemblyDef.IncludeAllTopLeveliMateDefinitions = DerivedComponentOptionEnum.kDerivedExcludeAll
    oDerivedAssemblyDef.IncludeAllTopLevelParameters = DerivedComponentOptionEnum.kDerivedExcludeAll
    Call oDerivedAssemblyDef.SetHolePatchingOptions(DerivedHolePatchEnum.kDerivedPatchNone)
    Call oDerivedAssemblyDef.SetRemoveByVisibilityOptions(DerivedGeometryRemovalEnum.kDerivedRemoveNone)
    Dim oDerivedAss As DerivedAssemblyComponent
    oDerivedAss = oPartDoc.ComponentDefinition.ReferenceComponents.DerivedAssemblyComponents.Add(oDerivedAssemblyDef)
    Call oDerivedAss.BreakLinkToFile()

    ' Save the part
    Dim partname As String=ThisDoc.PathAndFileName(False)& " (SHRINKWRAPPED).ipt"
    ThisApplication.ActiveView.Fit
    ThisApplication.CommandManager.ControlDefinitions.Item("AppIsometricViewCmd").Execute
    Call oPartDoc.SaveAs(partname ,  False)
Catch ex As Exception
        ErrorMessage = "Error creating ipt file."
End Try

oAsmCompDef.RepresentationsManager.DesignViewRepresentations.Item("Default").Activate

Else
'Do Nothing
End If

End If
Catch
End Try

          Bac : bonheur des uns, colère des autres   
  «Si deuxième session il y a, je veux que mon fils en fasse partie. Je ne vois pas pourquoi on privilégierait les retardataires.   Au dernier jour de l’examen, mon fils était complètement exténué. Tel un alcoolique, il se déplaçait en s’appuyant sur les murs. Pourquoi lui n’aurait-il pas une seconde chance ?» Mohamed, 52 ans, est un papa en colère. Ce dernier estime que cette deuxième session n’arrange qu’une certaine catégorie de candidats. Son fils, Redouane, partage son avis. «Je n’ai pas assuré mon examen. En apprenant cette décision, je me dis que j’aurais dû arriver en retard.» Aujourd’hui, rien n’est encore tranché. C’est le conseil ministériel restreint qui devrait trancher quant à la date de déroulement de l’examen. Le nombre exact des candidats concernés n’est toujours pas annoncé d’une manière officielle. La ministre de l’Education nationale, apprend-on, annoncera certains détails la semaine prochaine lors d’une conférence de presse qu’elle organisera. Qui est concerné ? Seulement les retardataires ? Sur quels critères l’Onec se basera-t-il pour convoquer à nouveau les candidats à cette session spéciale ? Comment pourra-t-on faire la différence entre les retardataires et ceux ayant carrément abandonné les épreuves au milieu de la semaine.   Absents «Cette session concernera les retardataires ainsi que les absents», assure Kamel Nouari, directeur d’un collège. Une information confirmée par Meziane Meriane du Snapest qui souligne : «Il faut savoir que cette décision n’avantage pas uniquement les retardataires mais également les absents étant donné qu’il est impossible de déterminer qui est absent et qui est retardataire.» Selon lui, cette décision est dramatique étant donné que désormais, même un candidat absent va réclamer et personne ne pourra le contredire puisqu’il n’y a aucun moyen de vérifier. Suite à cette décision présidentielle, les cartes ont été redistribuées, mais pas de façon égale. Ainsi, la majorité demande à ce que le bac soit repassé par tout le monde, ou alors par les retardataires et les recalés. «On doit refaire le bac pour les retardataires et pour être plus juste, qu’on le refasse pour les retardataires et pour ceux qui auront échoué, sauf pour les tricheurs qui doivent être sanctionnés», soutient Bachir Hakem. En attendant les détails, la polémique enfle. «Où est l’égalité des chances promise pour le bac ?» interroge Yasmine, une candidate qui a passé son bac. Cette dernière poursuit : «Nous avons passé le bac en pleine canicule. Le refaire pour une certaine catégorie est injuste. Ils auront plus de temps pour réviser.»   Ponctualité Mounir la rejoint et soutient : «Je ne comprends pas pourquoi on avantage les retardataires. Le bac est l’examen décisif dans la vie de tout candidat. S’il n’a pas conscience de cela, il n’a qu’à le repasser. En étant exclu, il aurait eu une année pour revoir ses priorités et arriver à l’heure le jour J.» La maman de Yasmine a une autre crainte par rapport à cette nouvelle session : «Ils vont repasser les épreuves à un grand nombre. Ces derniers auront plus de temps pour réviser et auront sûrement de meilleurs résultats. Logiquement, ils auront les meilleures orientations pour l’université, ce qui est injuste.» Pour Meziane Meriane, du Snapest, la deuxième session est une atteinte à la discipline et la rigueur. On aurait aimé que le gouvernement laisse l’Education donner des leçons de rigueur à la société concernant l’application des lois de la République. «C’est un bac basé sur l’inégalité des chances, car passer le bac en plein Ramadhan et le passer en septembre ou en dehors de Ramadhan n’est pas favorable à l’une comme à l’autre sessions. Les sujets n’auront pas forcément d’égales difficultés. Le temps de préparation pour l’une des catégories sera plus long. Les résultats obtenus ne seront pas équivalents», affirme-t-il. Un avis largement partagé par Nabil Ferguinis du Snapap, qui estime que la deuxième session est une «aberration pédagogique. Du pur populisme». Selon le syndicaliste, il s’agit d’une grave dérive et d’une décision politique qui rentre dans la stratégie du pouvoir et qui va juste mettre la première responsable du secteur dans une position de faiblesse. «Le débat politique a omis le programme du gouvernement et vire vers une organisation qui n’a aucun argument psycho-pédagogique. Au lieu de penser à la rigueur pédagogique dont notre école a tant besoin en ces moments, le pouvoir politique impose une autre forme de ‘‘seuil’’», poursuit-il. L’activiste Kamel Nouari est aussi contre cette deuxième session.   Victimes «Le principe de l’égalité des chances n’est pas respecté. Comment peuvent-ils expliquer le fait d’interdire l’accès à l’établissement si un candidat est en retard, mais qu’on lui redonne la chance de repasser tout le bac, si ce n’est encourager la médiocrité», soutient-il. Il affirme aussi que même dans le cas d’organiser une autre session, il y a des règles à respecter : «Une autre session, ça se prépare avec l’accord de tous les partenaires sociaux, les parents d’élèves. Il faut aussi déterminer qui est concerné ou pas en précisant la date exacte.» Ce dernier confie qu’il serait pour une deuxième session uniquement si elle est organisée pour les retardataires mais aussi pour les recalés.  n

          Commentaires sur Le RDV Tech 215 – Amazole Foods par ToToR65   
Bonjour @notpatrick. Comme @yohannt l'avait fait habilement remarquer tu as parler des nouveaux format AZERTY et PEBO dans le dernier RDVTech. Donc je me suis empressé d'aller l'écouter et je n'ai pas été déçu ;) Mon sentiment là dessus est mitigé. D'abord la joie et la fierté d'avoir été cité au RDVTech, ça n'a pas de prix. Dans n'importe quelle circonstance (même si là j'ai l'impression de passer pour un emmerdeur :D ). Le second sentiment, je ne saurai pas le définir pour l'instant. Donc je vais écrire ce qui m'a fait tiquer et peut-être la définition du sentiment ira de soi. Tu as utilisé pendant ces toutes petites 10 minutes sur le sujet un mot, à 4 reprises il me semble. Programmeur. Et du coup je l'ai pris en plein coeur. Et j'ai repensé à notre discussion sur Twitter, à propos de @ et de |. J'ai l'impression que nous défendions chacun notre point de vue, et c'est bien normal, mais du coup je comprends maintenant que tu partais du postulat que je défendais la profession des programmeurs. J'ai même l'impression que de ton point de vue tous les informaticiens sont des programmeurs. Et ça, ça fait mal. Voilà le sentiment, la douleur, de ne pas être considéré. Tout d'abord, je pense que ce terme sort des entrailles des années 90, puisque j'ai l'impression que de nos jours on parle plus de développeurs (mais après je connais mal ce milieu j'avoue). Et ensuite, non nous ne sommes pas tous des programmeurs. J'irai même plus loin. A titre personnel, j'ai appris quelque langage de programmation à l'école et la conclusion que j'en tire c'est que je déteste programmer/développer. Mais il en faut et j'admire leur travail (qui est bien plus dur que le mien je pense). Ne t'inquiète pas, tu n'es pas le seul à faire l'amalgame informaticien et programmeur, j'aimerai donc te sensibiliser à cet aspect. La branche de l'informatique à laquelle j'appartiens (enfin dont j'en ai fait le métier), c'est l'administration (non pas la maison qui rend fou de Astérix, l'admin informatique). Je dis bien admin informatique car il y a énormement de sous-branches de ce merveilleux métier. Pour être plus précis, je suis administrateur système. Quel est mon rôle ? Administrer un système d'exploitation et voici une liste non exhaustive des tâches que j'effectue : - installer/désinstaller des programmes - tenir à jour les programmes - tenir à jour le système d'exploitation - maintenir la sécurité du système d'exploitation Et plein d'autres tâches qui sont inhérentes au fait que je ne gère pas une seule machine mais quelques milliers. Par contre, quand on regarde d'un peu plus près ces quelques tâches que j'effectue au quotidien, on peut se rendre compte d'un chose... Nous sommes TOUS des administrateurs système. Quelque soit le système, on installe tous des applications, ainsi que les autres tâches plus accessoires (oui la sécurité, par les temps qui courrent, osef ;) ). Par conséquent, quand je défends le |, je ne le défends pas en tant que programmeur (ce que je ne suis pas) mais en tant qu'admin, le | est un outil de tous les systèmes d'exploitation (oui tous). Exemple : Sous Windows, allez dans le menu démarrer, taper cmd dans la recherche (ou dans Cortana), lancer l'invite de commande et taper ça : net statistics server | find "since" ou (si vous avez Windows en français) net statistics server | find "depuis" (cf https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/555737/how-to-find-windows-uptime) Et vous aurez l'uptime de votre système. Donc je ne dis pas que tout le monde utilise le |, mais tout le monde pourrait l'utiliser car c'est une commande de n'importe quel outil informatique sur lequel vous pourriez travailler. Et je ne parle pas des milliers de techniciens qui pourraient venir dépanner votre PC qui l'utilise au quotidien. C'est pour cela qu'il doit reste sur les claviers (pas forcément accessible, mais il est utile parce qu'il est lié au fonctionnement de votre outil informatique). J'espère qu'à l'avenir vous saurez faire la différence entre les développeurs (ces artistes créateurs) et les administrateurs (ces artisan de l'ombre, que nous sommes tous au final). Merci de votre attention et bonne journée. Peace.
          RE[2]: Is it just me...   
1) Depends what you mean by 'speed'. The current machines are 'responsive' in ways that more modern machines are not. For example, as nothing ever gets swapped out to disk, there are typically no pauses when the user makes a menu selection. There is no disk thrashing under normal application use as everything always in RAM. In terms of raw multi-media crunching bandwidth, I agree, the ARMs just aren't comparable with a top of the line desktop Intel chip. Having said that, for something like 'movie playback' hardware MPEG could perhaps do a better job anyway. 2) That neededn't be the case, if the OS were more open. As I said in the article, consumer grade ARM powered hardware is everywhere. 3) RISCOS itself is fast. Perhaps JIT emulated ARM code could be viewed as a sort of 'byte code' in which the OS is written. Speed critical parts always be written in native code. With the commercial JIT powered RO emulator (that I admit that I have never even seen running), I bet some UI operations are faster than the same operations on the underlying Windows PC. 4) Probably. Mike
          RE[2]: ARX and other thoughts   
Acorn were busy working on their Galileo OS when they folded. The plan for RISC OS was to replace the kernel with the new Galileo kernel, which would have supported pre-emptive multi-tasking and memory protection. I can see no reason why this wouldn't have worked and maintained application compatibility. The way that RISC OS apps work is by running in a loop continuously asking the windowing system what's happening, and it's at this point that the windowing system gives control to other applications before responding. A pre-emptive aware version of the RISC OS windowing system potentially wouldn't need to give control over to other applications. Unfortunately a project like Galileo is a major undertaking - almost certainly beyond the abilities of Castle or RISC OS Ltd, even if they put their differences aside and worked on it together.

Painting Stencils - 1/35 WWII German Tiger I Late Production sPz.Abt 504&510Soft reusable stainless steel masks

How-to:
Preparing the masks: Masks should not be stretched during the application process as they are flexible and this could cause deformation. Remove the whole mask if necessary, and then apply again. Once placed on the model, the mask surface should be adjusted to the surface of the model by tracing all the indentations with a pointed wooden stick.
Painting method: Try not to apply two coats of color at the edges of a mask. Instead, apply one color prior to painting the proper camouflage, and apply the other color after the mask is back on. Otherwise, the coating in the areas encased by the mask may be too thick, and after removing the mask the edges of the lighter color may become visible.

          Silicon Labs launches XOs for 100/400G line cards   
Silicon Labs, a supplier of silicon, software and solutions for networking applications, has introduced a new family of crystal oscillators (XOs), the Si54x Ultra Series, that is claimed to offer the lowest jitter frequency-flexible solution on the market.

The new Si54x Ultra Series XOs deliver jitter performance down to 80 femtoseconds (fs) for both integer and fractional frequencies across the entire operating range. The devices provide leading frequency flexibility and jitter margin performance and target demanding applications including 100/200/400 Gbit/s line cards and optical modules, hyperscale data centres, broadband, wireless infrastructure, broadcast video, industrial and test and measurement systems.

Silicon Labs' Si54x Ultra Series XOs are available with single, dual and quad frequency options and offered in an industry-standard 3.2 x 5 mm package, providing drop-in compatibility with traditional XO devices, as well as fast lead times and high reliability.

Silicon Labs noted that its PLL-based approach to oscillators is designed to enable efficient manufacturing and simplified factory programming to reduce lead times compared with custom oscillator products. Silicon Labs claims that this approach allows it to ship samples of any frequency XO within 1 to 2 weeks, and to deliver production quantities wthin four weeks.

The company's new Si54x oscillators employ Silicon Labs' advanced fourth-generation DSPLL technology to provide an ultra-low-jitter clock source at any output frequency. The device can be factory-programmed to any frequency from 200 kHz up to 1.5 GHz with <1 ppb resolution. In addition, on-chip power supply regulation allows noise rejection and enables consistent, reliable low-jitter operation in noisy scenarios such as high-speed networking and data centres.

The Si54x XOs also offer a drop-in replacements for low-jitter surface acoustic wave (SAW)-based oscillators while delivering superior frequency tolerance and temperature stability. The devices provide support for common output formats including LVDS, LVPECL, HCSL, CML, CMOS and Dual CMOS. Samples and production quantities of the Si54x Ultra Series oscillators are available immediately, and Silicon Labs offers a range of free web-based tools to support design and customisation.




          IoT forecasts come into focus   
For years now there has been forecast after forecast predicting the size of the IoT market by the end of the decade or ten years hence. There is always a big number of connected things and impressive valuation for the sum of the whole market, and with the large mobile operators such as AT&T and Verizon now including connected things in their quarterly reports there is hard data to back up the rosy forecasts. At an editorial briefing in San Jose last month, Qualcomm executives said it is now shipping one million wireless connections per day - this certainly gives a perspective on how fast IoT can grow. The company has hundreds of OEM design wins for its MDM9206 LTE modem for IoT.

As of June 15th, the GSMA Intelligence services says there are 8,132,111,132 mobile connections, including M2M. The GSMA's online tracker further reports 5,016,263,289 unique mobile subscribers, which are assumed to mean people with at least one mobile phone and SIM card. By subtraction, this means 3.1 billion M2M connections tracked by the GSMA via their mobile operator members.

This piece collects newly published data from several sources. First, IDC recently reported that worldwide spending on the IoT will reach nearly $1.4 trillion in 2021. Second, the Cisco Visual Network Index (VNI) found that M2M connections globally will grow from 780 million in 2016 to 3.3 billion by 2021, a 34% CAGR or fourfold growth. Third, the newly published Ericsson Mobility Study finds that 70% of wide-areas IoT devices will use cellular technology in 2022. While studies from different authors will never precisely line up, this collection of data agrees that real and significant revenue from IoT for carriers has started to materialize and will grow quickly in the near term.

Highlights from IDC’s Worldwide Semi-annual IoT spending guide

The first big finding to notice in IDC's report is that worldwide spending on IoT will reach $800 billion this year, up 16.7% year over year, which means that the market this month must be worth tens of millions of dollars. These numbers are spread out amongst the hardware, software, services and connectivity that enable the IoT. This means splitting the pot between vendors such as Qualcomm, Sierra Wireless, Cisco Jasper, integration specialists, and of course carriers such as AT&T, Orange and Vodafone. There are many others that could be included on this list, especially when considering the global market.  In that sense, the $800 billion is just a starting point. IDC's forecast says that by 2021, global IoT spending will total nearly $1.4 trillion. In a press release announcing the study, IDC's Carrie MacGillivray, vice president, Internet of Things and Mobility, stated that the true value of IoT is realised when the software and services come together to enable the capture, interpretation, and action on data produced by IoT endpoints.

IDC breaks down 2017 investments in IoT as follows: manufacturing operations ($105 billion), freight monitoring ($50 billion), and production asset management ($45 billion), smart grid technologies for electricity, gas and water and smart building technologies ($56 billion and $40 billion, respectively). Looking to 2021, IDC expects these use cases will remain the largest areas of IoT spending. Smart home technologies are forecast to experience strong growth (19.8% CAGR) over the five-year forecast. The use cases that will see the fastest spending growth are airport facilities automation (33.4% CAGR), electric vehicle charging (21.1% CAGR), and in-store contextual marketing (20.2% CAGR).

IDC sees hardware as the largest IoT spending category to 2021, the last year of the forecast, when it is overtaken by the services category. This is to be expected as the various physical sensors and connectivity units must be deployed first before a service can be offered. IDC says hardware spending will be dominated by modules and sensors that connect end points to networks, while software spending will be similarly dominated by applications software. In addition, IDC says services spending will be about evenly split between ongoing and content services and IT and installation services. The fastest growing areas of technology spending are in the software category, where horizontal software and analytics software will have five-year CAGRs of 29.0% and 20.5%, respectively. Security hardware and software will also see increased investment, growing at 15.1% and 16.6% CAGRs, respectively.

Regional highlights:

•   Asia Pacific (excluding Japan, APeJ) will be the IoT investment leader throughout the forecast with spending expected to reach $455 billion in 2021.

•   The U.S. will be the second largest region with IoT spending reaching $421 billion in 2021.

•   Western Europe will reach $274 billion in 2021.

The IDC Worldwide Semiannual Internet of Things Spending Guide is quite comprehensive, covering IoT spending for 12 technologies and 54 use cases across 20 vertical industries in eight regions and 52 countries (for more details see here: http://www.idc.com/getdoc.jsp?containerId=prUS42799917).

Cisco looks wide with its VNI forecast

Generally speaking, Cisco's forecasts have tended to be the most optimistic. This year’s Cisco VNI indicates that its IoT coverage includes both M2M and emerging category of wearable IoT devices. M2M connections, which Cisco defines as home and office security and automation, smart metering and utilities, maintenance, building automation, automotive, healthcare and consumer electronics, are predicted to grow from 780 million in 2016 to 3.3 billion by 2021, a 34% CAGR or fourfold growth.

Wearable devices, which Cisco notes could connect and communicate to the network either directly through embedded cellular connectivity or through another device (primarily a smartphone) using WiFi, Bluetooth, or another technology, include such things as smart watches, smart glasses, heads-up displays (HUDs), health and fitness trackers, health monitors, wearable scanners and navigation devices and smart clothing. The Cisco VNI predicts that by 2021 there will be 929 million wearable devices globally, growing nearly threefold from 325 million in 2016 at a CAGR of 23%. By 2021, Cisco expects that 7% will have embedded cellular connectivity, up from 3% in 2016. As AR/VR headsets enter the market, they could start to have a tangible impact on mobile traffic.

Ericsson looks to short-range and wide-range IoT connectivity

The newly published Ericsson Mobility Report finds that at the end of 2016 there were around 0.4 billion IoT devices with cellular connections. Ericsson's study divides IoT into short-range and wide-area segments, and it provides some guidance as to how IoT is impacting the network. For instance, the report says use cases with VoLTE calls for IoT (Cat-M1) are starting to emerge. This could extend mobile voice service to IoT devices, an interesting possibility.

By 2021, Ericsson expects there will be 2.1 billion devices connected via LTE-M and NB-IoT networks, roughly a 30% CAGR from today. This trend has already started. This year, several prominent mobile operators have rolled out commercial LTE-M networks. For instance, in March, Verizon announced the commercial launch of its nationwide 4G LTE Category M1 (or Cat M1) network. The coverage spans 2.4 million square miles. Verizon will introduce low rate, multi-year plans to match the longer useful life of Cat M1 devices, including data plans that start at $2 per month per device, with customised options available for bulk activations and volume purchases. In May, AT&T followed suit by announcing the deployment of its nationwide LTE-M network ahead of schedule.


          Nokia – IP networks re-imagined   
Recently we have seen Cisco predict that busy hour global IP traffic will grow 4.6-fold (35% CAGR) from 2016 to 2021, reaching 4.3 Pb/s by 2021, compared to average Internet traffic that will grow 3.2-fold (26% CAGR) over the same period to reach 717 Tb/s by 2021. The latest edition of the Ericsson Mobility Report, released earlier this week, calculates that the total traffic in mobile networks increased by 70% between the end of Q1 2016 and the end of Q1 2017. And now, Nokia Bell Labs has just announced its own prediction: IP traffic will more than double in the next five years, reaching 330 exabytes per month by 2022 while growing at a 25% CAGR. The company anticipates that peak data rates will grow even faster at nearly 40% annually. Nokia Bell Labs also predicts that 3D/4K/UHD will experience a 4.79x growth from 2017 – 22, that wireless traffic will experience 7.5x growth from 2017 – 22, and that worldwide IoT devices to grow from 12bn in 2017 to 100bn in 2025.

Nokia unveils next gen networking processing engine

Nokia's processing engine sets the stage for perhaps the most significant announcement from the company since the merger of Alcatel-Lucent and Nokia Siemens Networks in 2015. In a press event entitled 'IP networks reimagined', Nokia unveiled its FP4 silicon, featuring the 'first' 2.4 Tbit/s network processor, up to 6x more powerful than processors currently available. The proprietary chipset is designed for a new class of petabit-class routers.

Core routers traditionally have been the 'big iron' that powers the heart of the Internet. It is a product category dominated by Cisco, Huawei, Juniper and Nokia, including via its existing 7950 XRS routing platform. However, the market has been in flux. Earlier this month, Dell’Oro Group reported a significant break in Q1 17 with Huawei taking the top spot from Cisco in the core router market for the first time. The report also found Huawei taking over second spot from Nokia in the SP edge router and CES market. The primary reason cited for this shift is that the SP core routing business is only growing at a low single-digit rate, while China Mobile is defying the trend with significant investments in their IP core backbone, for which Huawei is the lead supplier. Nevertheless, the overall predictions for rapid growth in IP traffic over the coming five years makes it more likely that service providers will need a significant refresh of their core backbones to handle hundreds of 100 or 400 Gbit/s connections at major nodes.

Nokia's previous generation FP3 chipset, unveiled by Alcatel-Lucent in June 2011 and launched in 2012, packed 288 RISC cores operating at 1 GHz and leveraged 40 nm process technology; the FP2 chipset offered 112 cores at 840 MHz and was built in 90 nm. This network processor lineage can be traced back to TiMetra Networks, a start-up based in Mountain View, California that launched its first carrier-class routing platforms in 2003.

TiMetra, which was headed by Basil Alwan, was acquired by Alcatel-Lucent later in 2003 for approximately $150 million in stock. The product line went on to become the highly successful 7450, 7750 and eventually 7950 carrier platforms - the basis for the IP division at Alcatel-Lucent. Not bad for an idea from a small start-up to grow into the star platform underpinning all of Alcatel-Lucent + Nokia Siemens Networks.

In a launch day webcast, Basil Alwan, now president of Nokia's IP/Optical Networks business group, said we are moving into a new phase of the Internet requiring 'cloud-scale routing'. First, he noted that there is market confusion between Internet-class routers and core data centre switches, which are being used to power the hyperscale infrastructure of the Internet content providers. High-end, data centre spine switches are capable of routing packets at high rates and can handle access control lists (ACLs). Likewise, conventional big iron core routers can switch data flows, and are sometimes deployed in data centres. However, there have been tradeoffs when this role reversal happens. Nokia's new FP4 chipset aims to fix that.

First multi-terabit NPU silicon

Six years have passed since the FP3, or roughly two cycles in the evolution of Moore's Law, so naturally one would expect the new silicon to be smaller, faster and more powerful and efficient. But Alwan said the company took its time to rethink how the packet processing works at the silicon level. To begin with, Nokia redesigned the onboard memory, employing 2.5D and 3D layouts on 16 nm Fin Field Effect Transistor (FinFET) technology. The single chip contains 22 dies, including memory stacks and control logic. It runs at 2.4 Tbit/s half-duplex, or 6x more capacity than the current generation 400 Gbit/s FP3 chipset. The FP4 will support full terabit IP flows. All conventional routing capabilities are included. Deep classification capabilities include enhanced packet intelligence and control, policy controls, telemetry and security.

The FP4 could be used to provide an in-service upgrade to Nokia's current line of core routers and carrier switches. It will also be used to power a new family of 7750 SR-s series routers designed for single-node, cloud scale density. In terms of specs, the SR-s boasts a 144 Tbit/s configuration supporting port densities of up to 144 future terabit links, 288 x 400 Gbit/s ports, or 1,440 100 Gigabit Ethernet ports. Absolute capacity could be doubled for a maximum of 288 Tbit/s configuration. It runs the same software as the company's widely-deployed systems. The first 7750 SR-s boxes are already running in Nokia labs and the first commercial shipments are expected in Q4.

Nokia is also introducing a chassis extension option to push its router into petabit territory. Without using the switching shelf concept employed in the multi-chassis designs of its competitors, Nokia is offering the means to integrate up to six of its 7750 SRS-s routers into a single system. This results in 576 Tbit/s of capacity, enough for densities of up to 2,880 x 100 GBE ports or 720 x 400 Gbit/s ports. Adding up the numbers, it is not truly petabit-class, but at 576 Tbit/s it is more than halfway there.

Network telemetry leads to security
Another interesting twist concerns security and petabit-class routing. In December 2016, Nokia agreed to acquire Deepfield, a start-up specialising in real-time analytics for IP network performance management and security. Deepfield, founded in 2011 and based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, has developed an analytics platform that identifies over 30,000 popular cloud applications and services. Its Internet Genome tracks how traffic runs to and through networks to reach subscribers, in real time, and without the need for probes, taps and monitors in the network itself. At the time of the deal, Nokia said it would integrate Deepfield big data analytics with the dynamic control capabilities of open SDN platforms, such as the Nokia Network Services Platform (NSP) and Nuage Networks Virtualized Services Platform (VSP).

Expanding on this idea, Alwan said Deepfield can really leverage the routers rather than probes to understand what is happening to the traffic. Fewer probes mean lower investment. More importantly, Deepfield could be used to track DDoS attacks passing through the core of the network rather than at the edge destination target. The new FP4 silicon is said to be a very good match for this application.

Those articles do a good job of summarising the positive side of what has been achieved (improved classification and prediction) and presenting the point that there is a lot more to intelligence than has been demonstrated so far. Though, as I mention above, a great thing about Hinton's deep learning systems is that they can generate images (and probably sounds) from incomplete or noisy input images, or by exciting high-level neurons that represent that class. Although being able to recognise images or sounds alone makes for pretty shallow "understanding". I think further advances might start to occur when they start trying to mix multiple sensory streams: particularly vision and sound, but eventually tactile senses as well. This could easily be achieved with the minimal changes to the current designs of deep learning architectures. If we can have the machine be shown an image, and it spontaneously generate speech that says what object it recognises, some people would find that a bit eerie. This would approximate playing the naming game with a child. If we could tell the robot a story, and in its "mind" it spontaneously starts generating images that represent the story, we could say that the machine is actually on the way to having a genuine "understanding" of the story. As I describe in this post, advances might also be achieved by expanding the perceptual applications to include things like motion perception: often visible as objects changing position, scale or rotation. One thing that is less obvious, is how to apply deep learning to motion control of robots. That's something I'm still thinking about. Even though I can see great potential in deep learning, I can still see some significant obstacles. Deep learning still uses iterative training techniques, which despite being quicker than they were, are still a far cry from being able to briefly see a person or object once, and then recognising that person or object from obscure angles and distances moments later. Something that people can (sometimes) do very well. Though this might be easily taken care of with some complementary memory processes (much as it seems to be in the brain). And even if current systems for deep learning turns out to have some fatal flaw in being applicable to simulating intelligence, I think the cat is very nearly out of the bag. The neocortex has largely the same structure all over the brain, and we have reasonably good approximations for many of the less regular areas of the brain. So, in my opinion it is only a matter of time before we have intelligent machines. Or machines "intelligent" enough to do most of what we've ever wanted them to, though with certain physical constraints withstanding.

          Crystal-chemical relations and classification problems belonging to the oxy-schorl – oxy-dravite – bosiite – povondraite series (no replies)   
Reference:
▪ Bosi, F., Cámara, F., Ciriotti, M.E., Hålenius, U., Reznitskii, L., Stagno, V. (2017): Crystal-chemical relations and classification problems in tourmalines belonging to the oxy-schorl – oxy-dravite – bosiite – povondraite series. European Journal of Mineralogy, 29, 445-455.

Abstract:
Two oxy-tourmalines showing intermediate compositions between the oxy-schorl and oxy-dravite series (sample from Sludyanka crystalline complex, Baikal, Russia) and the oxy-dravite and bosiite series (sample from the Valletta mine, Piedmont, Italy) were structurally and chemically characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction, electron microprobe analysis, optical absorption and Synchrotron Mössbauer source spectroscopy. A comparative analysis of the results, along with data from literature on additional samples corresponding to the species oxy-schorl, oxy-dravite, bosiite and povondraite, show that the main structural variations within the Fe-bearing, Na-dominant oxy-tourmalines are related to variations in the content of Fe, which is incorporated into the structure via substitution mechanisms that involves Al. The results also show the occurrence of a complete substitution series from oxy-schorl via oxy-dravite and bosiite to povondraite, but no (or a limited) direct substitution series between oxy-schorl and bosiite (or povondraite). The substitution of Al by larger cations causes changes in ⟨Y–O⟩ and ⟨Z–O⟩ distances as well as in the unit-cell parameters. The effect of ⟨Y–O⟩ on the a-parameter is evident in the oxy-schorl–oxy-dravite series, but it is of marginal significance in the oxy-dravite–bosiite–povondraite series. On the other hand, a good correlation exists between ⟨Z–O⟩ and the a-parameter only in the oxy-dravite–bosiite–povondraite series. The c-parameter is strongly correlated with ⟨Z–O⟩ along the entire substitution series.
Classification problems related to the naming of Fe-bearing, Na-dominant oxy-tourmalines are discussed. Application of the nomenclature rules in force resulted in ambiguous naming of the studied samples. This makes, for example, direct comparisons of physical and chemical properties of tourmalines originating from different deposits difficult.

          Voting Fights in the States   
AP Photo/Andrew Selsky

Oregon Governor Kate Brown, at podium, celebrates Oregon's first year of an automatic voter registration program with a news conference, where she said that in the November election, over 97,000 ballots were cast by new voters registered by the so-called motor voter program. Hazelnuts contained in the bags in the foreground represent the 270,000 Oregonians who were registered to vote by the program. 

The national battle over voting rights and “voter fraud” will play out in Washington over the next months in relation to the Kobach-Pence commission and the resistance to it. But in the meantime, issues have been joined this spring in state legislative sessions around the country. And the resulting scorecard may surprise you.

Back in November, when the dust settled after the election, the numbers on partisan control of legislatures seemed stark and frightening for advocates of voting rights and election reform. Republicans controlled both chambers in 31 states, and had the full “trifecta,” including the governor, in 24. In sharp contrast, Democrats controlled both houses in only 13 states, and had trifectas in a mere six. Looking at these numbers, at the post-Shelby decision absence of Voting Rights Act preclearance protections, and at the radically changed posture of the Justice Department, many feared an onslaught of voter-suppression legislation that would create an even more diminished electorate for the elections of 2018.

Well, it’s now the end of June, and while some legislatures are still in session, the great majority have finished their business for the year. Several states have indeed passed bad bills. But, overall, the results are significantly better, both in staving off voter-suppression efforts and in expanding voting rights and voting access, than one might have expected as the sessions began.

First, A Few Real Successes

Perhaps the most remarkable outcome this year is in Illinois, which has a Democratic legislature and a conservative Republican governor, Bruce Rauner. Last year, the legislature passed an automatic voter registration (AVR) bill with bipartisan support, but Rauner vetoed it. 

Under automatic voter registration, people who go to the DMV, and potentially other agencies as well, are automatically put on the voter roll, unless they opt out. In Oregon, which was the first adopter, AVR has added several hundred thousand voters to the rolls.

In Illinois, an AVR bill was reintroduced this year and, remarkably, passed both chambers with unanimous votes. While Rauner has 60 days to sign the bill, all indications are that he will, joining Illinois with eight other states and the District of Columbia where AVR is being implemented, and showing that maybe, at least in Illinois, encouraging people to register and vote doesn’t seem like a partisan trick.

The victory was also the work of a broad and determined coalition of voting-rights and election-reform advocacy groups, under the rubric of Just Democracy. Brian Gladstein, Executive Director of Common Cause Illinois and one of the leaders of the coalition said:

This bill will bring over one million eligible voters into the electoral process in Illinois. During a time of heightened partisanship in Springfield and across the nation, we have demonstrated that breaking down barriers to the ballot box can be achieved and supported by both Democrats and Republicans.

AVR still has a good chance to pass in other states. In Rhode Island, an AVR bill passed the House unanimously and a positive vote in the Senate is expected shortly. Governor Gina Raimondo has said she will sign it if it comes to her desk. In Massachusetts, where the legislative session goes on all year, an AVR bill with 102 legislative sponsors has been heard in committee (23 speakers in favor and none against), and could be before the full legislature in the fall.

In some other states, AVR made headway but was eventually blocked. These include Maine, New Mexico, and Nevada. In Nevada’s case, the bill passed both houses, but was vetoed by Republican Governor Brian Sandoval. A ballot initiative on AVR now goes to the voters, who will have the chance to approve it in the November 2018 general election.

In addition to automatic voter registration, other real gains were made. Utah expanded opportunities for early voting and absentee voting. New Jersey improved its processes for military voters and Indiana improved its registration process at the motor vehicle department.

Another issue where progress was made, though halting and slow, is restoration of the right to vote for citizens with felony convictions. Forty-nine bills were introduced in 16 states to restore voting rights to formerly incarcerated people who have served their sentences. A real victory occurred in Wyoming, which enacted a bill providing that people who completed their sentence after January 1, 2010, do not need to submit an application for restoration of voting rights and will automatically be issued a certificate of restoration.

In Florida, where 1.7 million citizens can’t vote due to the state’s lifetime ban on voting by people with felony convictions (1.5 million have fully completed their sentences), the broad and bipartisan Florida Rights Restoration Coalition has made major strides. The Florida Supreme Court has approved language for a proposed ballot initiative to restore voting rights to ex-felons; now the job is collecting 700,000 signatures on the petition in order to be on the ballot in November 2018.

In Minnesota, the Restore the Vote Coalition got a bill to more effectively restore voting rights through one house of the legislature. And in Nebraska, the state’s conservative unicameral legislature passed a bill to restore voting rights to citizens upon release from incarceration by a 27-13 margin, but the bill was vetoed by Governor Pete Ricketts. (Nebraska voting-rights advocates also derailed a proposed constitutional amendment requiring voter ID.)

Now for the Bad News

To be clear, and clear-eyed, the move to make voting more difficult and restricted continues, and several states enacted laws designed to limit the vote in one way or another. The forces bent on restricting the vote have won significant victories over the last several years, though many of the laws have been successfully challenged in court. In fact, of the worst voter-restriction bills that passed this year, a majority were actually efforts to re-pass laws struck down in court, altered in order to make them more judicially acceptable.

·      Iowa enacted a law, championed by Secretary of State Paul Pate, which includes restrictions on voter-registration drives; hindrances to Election Day, early, and absentee voting; strict voter-ID requirements; and—most troublesome—the right to purge voter rolls of “non-citizen” names without any clarity on who and how such decisions to purge are made. This could lead to significant numbers of eligible voters being disenfranchised.

·      New Hampshire passed a bill restricting registration for students and low-income voters by requiring proof of residency for those who register 30 days before the election, with investigation and criminal penalties for failure to comply. (A component to eliminate same-day registration was dropped from the bill.)

·      In Arkansas, a voter-ID law, modified after courts struck down an earlier, similar law, was passed and signed. The law reinstates the requirement that a voter must provide one of a narrow choice of IDs at the polls. In addition, the legislature put a constitutional amendment requiring voter ID on the 2018 ballot.

·      In North Dakota, the only state that doesn’t require voter registration at all, the governor signed strict voter-ID requirements into law. The bill was softened somewhat, particularly in regard to the Native American community, to avoid the fate of the 2016 version of the law, which was struck down in court.

Why Less Carnage?

No one wants to be naïvely optimistic, or to underestimate how much damage has already been done in states by determined efforts at voter suppression. Racially charged and politically motivated efforts continue at every level to find ways to discourage people from registering and voting. In the wake of Shelby, these efforts have multiplied and will continue to do so.

But, overall, the results in the 2017 legislative sessions were not nearly as bad as seemed likely last November. There was not a deluge of major voter-suppression legislation. Some bad bills were passed, a number were weakened as they made their way through the legislative process, and a significant number were sidetracked along the way. Two main reasons for this seem clear.

First, the courts, both state and federal, have played a significant role in preventing extreme assaults on voting. Prodded by strong litigation efforts from voting-rights organizations, in state after state, courts have found voter-suppression efforts unconstitutional, blocking their implementation. In addition to the direct effects of the cases, their cumulative impact has been to caution and restrain advocates of restrictive legislation from overreaching.

Second, it is deeply encouraging to see the growing power, sophistication, and rapid response capabilities of the movement for an inclusive democracy. In state after state, coalitions were activated, or created, to fight back against the efforts to stifle, shrink, and bleach the vote. 

And the advocates didn’t just play defense. Despite the potentially unfavorable partisan makeup in so many states, the affirmative action for expanding the right and ability to vote continues to make headway—winning in some states, gathering momentum for future victories in others. 

And there is one other cause for optimism worth noting. I recently attended a conference of 200 legislators and election officials from around the country, co-convened by the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) and the Democracy Fund. The focus of the event was election technology and administration. There was strong and bipartisan support for improving election machinery, combating the challenges of cybersecurity, and fighting for adequate funding to run elections in the best way possible. This is one of the reasons that online registration and automatic voter registration are making real progress; they are technical improvements as well as access expansions. The election officials take their responsibilities seriously, and if legislators, state and national, would take their cues, bipartisan progress just might become more possible.

Comments: I will have a look at the problem. Thank your or the link. This is really an awesome article. Just added it to my bookmarks.
          Updated Wiki: Documentation   

Overview

The current state of documentation is based on the fact YOU know some details of authentication and IIS configuration. Sorry, but that's it for now.

Also check out the FAQ.

Installation

Assemblies

The assemblies are not signed and therefor are not deployable to deploy to GAC. The Installation is a simple XCOPY to the application BIN folder. Check out the IIS configuration and find the application to run the code in. Copy the DLL (and PDB if you like) into the BIN directory.
-> c:\inetpub\wwwroot\bin
--> GK.IIS.SignInAsADifferentUser.dll
--> GK.IIS.SignInAsADifferentUser.pdb

web.config

We need another handler entry in "system.webServer" (see minimal configuration)
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<configuration>
    <system.webServer>
        <handlers>
            <add name="GK.IIS.SignInAsADifferentUser" path="*.signinas" verb="*" type="GK.IIS.SignInAsADifferentUser.SignInAsHandler" resourceType="Unspecified" preCondition="integratedMode" />
        </handlers>
    </system.webServer>
</configuration>

Testing

The current version is tested using the following parameters:
  • IIS 7
  • Windows Authentication (Anonymous disabled)
  • App Pool settings
    • .NET Framework 2.0
    • Manged Pipeline as Inetgrated

Usage

The usage is based on a set of known urls that are described in the next sections. Access the solution using your browser an start like this:
http://superapp.company.local/whoami.signinas
Switch user with:
http://superapp.company.local/switchuser.signinas

whoami.signinas

This will Display the current username, auth scheme and server Name

switchuser.signinas

This will Redirect to the auth page with a unique id that is needed to avoid the usage of session state. The request is using the HTTPCache to Keep some information.

auth.signinas (+ request param with guid)

This will send the 401 until the user has switched. If the user is authenticated with a different identity the page will Redirect to the current dir's default page (using ./ as the url)

cache.signinas

This will display th cache used for the solution to avoid sessionstate config

cleancache.asigninas

This will delete the cache to start fresh

          New Post: ASP.NET MVC   

Hi,

i didn't manage to find the time to do a repro for this problem. As mentioned in my email i think this might indeed be a caching problem. If you trace the application with a tool like fiddler can you verify that the wrong username is not delivered from a cached (HTTP 304) page? If you check the whoami.signinas page is this always telling the right thing? We had a similar problem in the lync installation, but it was a caching issue only if we switched the user to often for testing purpose. Using it in real life situation (for us) the user opens the page and switched once and then closes the browser after work is done.

Please remember the authentication is working per URI (=URL). If you switch the authentication for http://mydemoapp:5674 it will only be switched at this url and any url below. It would not affect http://mydemoapp.company.local. But i assume this would already be a problem for you because of the rules that apply to scripting (cross site scripting and same origin policy).

Also keep in mind that the authentication is bound to the current process. If you try to launch a excel sheet accessing data from your app this will run in the local user context. This is a common problem in SharePoint, if user switched the identity and then tries to work with office documents from a library.

Maybe http://www.fiddler2.com/fiddler2/ will help to trak your problem down. Try checking the http headers responsible for caching.

Ciao Marco

 


          Updated Wiki: Home   
Project Description
Running your browser (IE) in a corporate environment will give you single sign on to web applications running in your intranet. But in some cases you need to access an URL with different credentials (admin purpose, etc.). Applications like SharePoint will provide you a solution right out of the box, but if this is not available the SignInAsADifferentUser project may help you. We as Glück & Kanja Consulting AG deployed such configurations in relation to Microsoft Lync components. Searching the web found one article with a solution based on custom ASPX pages. This article was a great starting point and we created a little package as an HTTPHandler to allow an easy integration into existing solutions. The first drop will have only a limited testing phase in a production environment. If we receive qualified feedback we are open to change the implementation. For the rest of you: Take the sources and be happy :-)

Scenarios
  • Lync 2010
    • Configured inside of one of the administration websites
  • Exchange 2010
    • Configured along the owa folder using the html redirection pages
      • The configuration was not working inside of the owa directory

Thanks for the informative post Annsley.

As I understand it ratification itself is not needed until 3 months (plus one day) before the UPC becomes fully operational.

As alluded to in Alexander Ramsay's message, at this point the source of delay is not ratifications of the UPCA per se, but that the inability to start the provisional application phase which should last at least 6 months before the UPC becomes fully operational.

In relation to actions from the UK, the provisional application phase can be kicked off by providing a notification that the UK has parliamentary approval to ratify rather than by actual ratification. Presumably this means only steps 1+2 need to be completed and that steps 3+4 could be completed during the first 3 months of the provisional application phase.

          The New Forests Company and its Uganda plantations: Oxfam Case Study   

London-based New Forests Company (NFC) would seem to be the design blueprint of how a young modern company should conduct a major land investment in Africa in a responsible way. Oxfam’s investigations reveal, however, that serious allegations by people who were evicted from land to make way for NFC’s operations remain unresolved. How will the company respond?

Today, the people evicted from the land are desperate, having been driven into poverty and landlessness. In some instances they say they were subjected to violence and their property, crops, and livestock destroyed. They say they were not properly consulted, have been offered no adequate compensation, and have received no alternative land.

Oxfam believes that the affected communities in Kiboga and Mubende deserve to have their case heard and to see justice done.

In Oxfam’s view, NFC and its financial backers must be held to account for the lost
livelihoods and shattered lives of families evicted from the land they farmed. Oxfam is
calling on NFC and its investors to:

  • Hold a full investigation into the events in Kiboga and Mubende, and make the terms of reference for the investigation and its findings, public;
  • Commit to a transparent and accountable process to provide justice for the affected communities and, in consultation with affected communities and local and national authorities, ensure the provision of alternative land and compensation for lost homes, crops, livestock, and livelihoods;
  • Provide damages for any abuses found to have been suffered by affected communities; 
  • Where failures are found, commit to reform their policies, standards, and procedures, so that such abuses can never happen again.

          7 Ways to Brighten Your Horizon Forever   

You're reading 7 Ways to Brighten Your Horizon Forever, originally posted on Pick the Brain | Motivation and Self Improvement. If you're enjoying this, please visit our site for more inspirational articles.

  1. Read Books that Make you think Outside the Box!

Brighten your horizon by realizing that everyone is your teacher. Gradually, you’ll gravitate to books - reading them will shape and mould your character brick by brick. Over time, they’ll help carve out a masterpiece of an inner canvas, making you consider possibilities you would have never otherwise considered.

One idea has the potential to change your life forever if you act on it.“Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.” Sometimes, the most profound insights you have in your life will come through reading one sentence, one quote, in one book.

  1. Invest BIG in Yourself

Countless people similar to you have made mistakes and often pass on their decades of experience — so that you don’t have to learn things the hard way. Warren Buffett, the world renowned and famous investor, once said “It’s good to learn from your mistakes. But it’s better to learn from other people’s mistakes.”

Whether it’s through an online course, seminar, or a three-day event (related to skills you’re passionate about improving) — you’ll usually come back with an upgraded toolkit. Having the willingness to let go of your ego, by investing in yourself, will cut your learning curve and allow you to get the skills that some people have taken YEARS to learn.

Just because you’ve finished your degree doesn’t mean your life education is over. In fact, it’s always just getting started. Remember: if you don’t invest in yourself, then who will?

  1. Reflect on your Direction Regularly!

You only ever have so much energy to give, and every once in awhile; you need to make a pit stop. That can take the form of a public blog, a written journal, or simply a conversation with a friend to reflect on your year so far.

Reflecting on your journey, is one of the most important things you can do for your direction and self-awareness in the long term. The active recovery will give you the clarity needed to act on hard truths — so that you can make wise improvements in both your personal and professional life.

  1. Save BIG Money Every Month

If you don’t have money under control, you don’t live free. If you don’t save money every month, you’re not preparing for the future. Making a saving plan doesn’t have to be complicated. You just need to calculate how much you automatically spend every month, and then create a comfortable monthly standing order for an amount that you can easily commit to.

Brian Tracy, one of the most prominent self-improvement gurus, in his book, the 21 Secrets of Millionaires, wrote: “if you don’t save money, the seeds of greatness aren’t within you. By saving for the future, you show that you understand that a little money saved each month, will end up going a long way towards your freedom. And freedom is something you value tremendously.

  1. Mostly Eat Healthy Food!

Anyone can eat a couple of fruits and vegetables per day. Anyone can eat one protein-rich meal per day. Anyone can skip the soda and make sure they drink enough water. Eating healthy is not a pursuit of perfection, it’s just about feeding your body more of what it needs, and less of what it doesn’t.

Companies are spending billions of dollars on marketing processed foods so you can’t be too harsh on yourself if you eat unhealthy on occasion. Yes, you’ve probably grown to love cookies, ice cream, and the like — but by feeding your body more nutritious foods most of the time, you’ll disable part of the lure processed foods have over you.

  1. Exercise Regularly!

Exercise isn’t just about improving your physique or your health; it’s about improving your mentality and physiology. Similarly to fine-tuning a car, your body needs the right intervention to operate at its best! You only ever end up getting one body in your lifetime, so you do what you can to take care of it! Whether you go to the gym three times per week, jog once a week, play sports with your friends — you were built to move!

Having an xercisee ritual is a gateway into a higher state of energy and focus. And with that state, you can experience more rewarding days = a more rewarding life.If you’re exercising in some form regularly (even if it’s just taking a long walk), then you’re leveraging all the areas of your life closer to their full potential!

  1. Be Mindful of your Media Consumption!

One of the easiest ways to relax and stimulate yourself after a long day at work is to turn on Netflix, Amazon Prime, or whatever’s trending now. With a flick of your fingers, you can get access to a whole variety of entertainment. The average person in America consumes an average of five hours of Television per day! Zig Ziglar, in his book, How to Stay Motivated, mentions that the average Chairman of a board only consumes four to eight hours of television per week.

Be the chairman of your life — by being mindful of the quality and quantity of information you allow to flow into your consciousness. You decide whether you want to experience the better part of the thrills you seek, through a screen, or your life...

With time and application, these seven different components of your life will start clicking into place, as they continually serve to brighten your horizon!

          Online Code Sessions on JAX-RS, JSON API, and Java EE   

With the Java EE 8 release coming up this summer, now is the best time to get up to speed with important APIs. You are invited to a free Code Online webinar to learn about key Java EE 8 APIs and how to connect your mobile applications to a Java EE backend. Join us for three hours of server-side development. For your convenience, the webinars are available in three time zones. 

June 20 at 9:30 AM PDT -   Oracle Code Online - Americas   
June 21 at 9:30 AM IST -   Oracle Code Online - APAC   
June 22 at 9:30 AM CEST -  Oracle Code Online - EMEA    

Here are the sessions! 

Reactive REST Clients in a Microservices Landscape with David Delabassee. When designing microservices exchanges, REST is clearly the most popular approach, i.e. the de-facto standard. JAX-RS API hides all the low-level details behind RESTful calls. Complexity really starts to arise when multiple remote services need to be consumed in highly efficient manner. During this technical session, we will cover in details different solutions and best practices to efficiently consume REST services. This includes: 

- Synchronous Vs. Asynchronous
- Jersey Reactive Client API
- Popular Reactive libraries (e.g. RxJava)
- JAX-RS 2.1 Client API

How to use the new JSON Binding API with Dmitry Kornilov. JSON support is an important part of Java EE. This session provides a deep dive into JSON-P and JSON-B APIs explains how they are connected and can be used together. We will introduce and demonstrate new JSON-P features such as JSON Patch, JSON Pointer, and JSON Merge Patch as well as JSON-B features such as default and customized mapping, adapters, and serializers.

Enterprise Functionality for Mobile Apps with Johan Vos

Today an increasing number of companies and organizations are facing demands from their users (customers, partners, employees, and end-users) to make their enterprise functionality available via mobile apps. While many concepts that are used on the web also apply to mobile apps, the users of those apps typically expect more than just a website. In this session, we will demonstrate how you can reuse your existing investments in enterprise code and infrastructure, and easily add a mobile channel. We will demonstrate how the Oracle Cloud provides a great platform for bridging the gap between your enterprise code and the mobile apps your users are asking for.

          New Java Magazine Edition about UI Tools    

From Chief Editor of Java Magazine Andrew Binstock

Coding UIs used to be an awful chore, with endless minute adjustments having to be constantly recorded. Fortunately, JavaFX greatly facilitated UI construction by scripting it with FXML, which is discussed in our first article. Our second article explores the drag-and-drop design tool, Scene Builder, which can generate FXML. Scene Builder was originally an Oracle tool that was released to open source and taken over by Gluon, which has been maintaining it ever since.

Front ends to web applications have their own unique needs, and we cover those too in a pair of articles: one on MVC 1.0, a web framework that at one time was considered for inclusion in Java EE 8, and another on a JavaScript toolkit, Oracle JET, which provides among many resources a large palette of useful controls with easy ways to wire them together.

If UIs are not your favorite topic, we have other subjects of interest: a detailed discussion of using MQTT, one the main messaging protocols in IoT. You'll also find an interesting dive into how the up-and-coming build tool Gradle uses libraries. And finally, we revisit a topic we've covered before: Compact Profiles in Java 8. In addition, of course, we offer our usual quiz —this time with the inclusion of questions from the entry-level exam—our review, and other goodness, such as readers' views on whether to include JavaScript in future issues. 

Previous edition was about Java and JVM tools 


          Advanced Modular Development    

How do you create modules with JDK 9? This talk focuses on the migration of applications and existing code.  Alex Buckley presents the first part, describing a top-down migration of your application and Alan Bateman explains a bottom-up migration starting with libraries closest to the JVM. 

Alex Buckley demonstrates the migration of a typical application with 3 components: your application Jar file, third party Jar files and the JDK. In Java 9, the JDK will be structured in modules. The benefits are strong encapsulation, restricting the access to modify the module and reliable configuration, allowing modules to be self-contained without the need for a class path. Alex shows the migration of a simple JSON application. He explains in great detail how to define module requirements using Jdep, how to automatic create modules and export them and much more. 

Taking the same example of a simple JSON application, Alan Bateman shows how to migrate an application starting with libraries. He follows a similar process of looking into module requirements and exports.

Application migration - top down (1:01) 
Running your module application - javac (15:06) 
Library migration - bottom up migration (18:09)
Creating runtime images with Jlink (30:20) 
Summary (33:09) 
Q&A (35:42) 

You will still be able to use the classpath with Java 9. How the module system and the class path work together was explained in the Introduction to Modular Development blog. 

The JDK 9 release is proposed for July 2017. This blog ramps up your knowledge of Java 9, the module system and migration options. This blog is the third in the series, make sure to check the first two:

          Introduction to Modular Development   

What is the new module system in Java 9? In Java 7, the JDK was a complex monolithic platform. With Java 9, the platform itself needs to be modular to introduce the new system. Alan Bateman explains the underlining organization of the module system. He shows how modules are linked to each other within an application and how to create runtime images with the jlink tool, for example. 

The JDK 9 will work with your application the same as JDK 8 did. To make sure your code will run, you need to understand the deprecation process, encapsulation, and how to check your applications for unsupported APIs. Read all about it in the blog “Gear up for Java 9.”

You will still be able to use the class path with Java 9. Alan shows how to use the module and class paths together in the video below. He walks you through an example of an application with several modules. He also dives into modules themselves and explains their nomenclature, packages with many resources, configuration, and commands, to name a few.

          Integrating the Ethereum Blockchain into Java Apps    

How to access a distributed ledger technology blockchain from a Java application using web3j. The Ethereum blockchain is a decentralized platform that is the backbone of a secure, decentralized internet and is driven by the eponymous cryptocurrency Ether. Conor Svensson authored web3j, a lightweight Java library for building Java applications on the Ethereum blockchain. 

In a first article, which appeared in the Java Magazine, Conor Svensson gives the background of the Ethereum blockchain technology and explains how to create a blockchain that is connected to a Java application.  Web3j, a wrapper of client remote procedure calls using JSON, manages the transaction interactions with Ethereum clients. 

In a second article, he details how to use web3j to query the Ethereum blockchain via its reactive-functional API. He explains how to use RxJava’s Observables to add reactive functionality to the blockchain. 

An Ethereum client like Geth or Parity is the first step to getting you started. Clients will synchronize the Ethereum blockchain with one another and provide a gateway to interact with the blockchain. Ethereum takes care of Ether cryptocurrency payment transactions via the network. With just a few lines of code, you can hook up to the Ethereum blockchain and be notified of new blocks being added to the blockchain and start pulling information out of the blockchain in real time.

For code and step by step examples, read the full article here

          Congratulations New Java Champion Oliver Gierke   

Welcome New Java Champion Oliver Gierke

Oliver Gierke is leading the Spring Data project at Pivotal. He is an active member of the JCP expert group on JPA 2.1 and one of the main organizers of the JUG Saxony Day, OOP, JAX and WJAX conferences.

Oliver coined the Spring Data repository programming model which is a widely used Java abstraction to develop data access layers for relational and non-relational databases. This simplifies the way Java developers interact with persistence technologies as Spring Data provides an abstraction over APIs such as JPA. He is one of the leading experts on JPA and other persistence technologies. With Spring Data REST, he helped Java developers implement REST APIs. He also coined the Spring HATEOAS module and helped Java developers use hypermedia elements in REST APIs when using Spring MVC or JAX-RS.

Oliver is a consulting lecturer at the Chair of Software Engineering at TU Dresden helping students to get started with application development in Java. All of his material is available online: http://static.olivergierke.de/lectures/ This makes it easy for student developers to experiment with Java and receive a professional introduction to the language and Java development practices. 

Oliver contributes almost daily to diverse Open Source frameworks on Github, see https://github.com/olivergierke.  He is a frequent speaker at many conferences including BEDcon, OOP, JavaZone, Devoxx, SpringOne, JavaOne, JFokus, Øredev to name a few. Follow him at @olivergierke

Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems allow businesses to capture, track, and manage vital customer information. The explosive growth of CRM technology has attracted numerous companies, however the industry has been plagued by vendors offering overly complex solutions to solve basic business problems. "This has resulted in a low adoption rate and failed customer expectations" says Larry Caretsky, CEO of Commence Corporation. "The concern of most businesses today is not the lack of technology, but rather how they can leverage technology to improve their internal processes and ultimately their bottom line."

For the past ten years the role of maximizing lifetime value of customers has dramatically changed with the implementation and utilization of CRM. Generic CRM solutions have failed, and core issues of leveraging technology to improve internal processes and ultimately the bottom line, are still at the forefront of the CRM efficacy discussion. Larry Caretsky, CEO of Commence Corporation, a leading CRM provider, is the software executive profiled in The Software Professional Journal by manufacturing Journalist TR Cutler. The entire feature can be read at http://www.softwareprofessionalpeople.com/article1.htm.

Caretsky's company has been providing software solutions to growing businesses for seventeen years and has witnessed all the trends in CRM. With this vast experience, Caretsky discovered long ago that rapidly deployable, cost effective solutions were the only way for customers to quickly and affordably reap the benefits of their investment.

Few CRM firms have taken the unique approach to meeting the key objectives businesses by streamlining internal business processes, improving sales processes, and delighting customers. Caretsky refers to this proven implementation methodology as S.T.E.P., the System Technology Execution Process. S.T.E.P begins with the fundamental knowledge that most customers must first deal with the problem of data capture, data consolidation and data management. Typically, vital customer data is spread throughout the organization in contact managers, back office systems and spreadsheets. Employees spend a significant amount of time trying to determine where or who in the organization has the information they need to address customer inquiries. The inability to gain access to a complete customer profile only serves to rob people of precious time that should be spent selling to or servicing customers. Management is clearly aware of this and they realize that in order to become a more efficient sales and service organization they must get the right information in the hands of the right people at the right time.

"Many companies are entering the CRM market with generic solutions designed under a one-size fits all approach," says Caretsky. "Their business model is to try and sell the same solution to as many companies as possible regardless of the industry their in. This may have worked ten years ago, but it won't today. You simply cannot expect to sell your solution to a bank then walk across the street and sell it to an insurance company. You have to respect the complexity of their businesses and be prepared to understand and address their unique business requirements."

Commence has taken a unique approach to meeting these objectives beginning with the fundamental knowledge that most small to mid-size manufacturers and distributors must first address the problem of data capture, data consolidation and data sharing. The issue they face is that vital customer information is spread throughout their organization in contact managers, back office systems and excel spreadsheets and is often difficult to attain. Employees spend a significant amount of time trying to determine where or who in the organization has the information they need to address customer inquiries. This robs sales and service people of precious time during their day.

Commence CEO Caretsky Shares Change Management Plan for Distributors

Tinton Falls, NJ -- (ReleaseWire) -- 01/30/2007 -- One of the best ways that industrial organizations have found to make sure implementations "stick" is to have the management involved. When sales training is reinforced by management, the sales skills taught during training produced a 15% permanent increase in productivity.

Management needs to be involved in more than a cosmetic fashion. A senior member of the management team needs to attend the training, and this same manager should inspect the sales activities for a period of time to make sure they continuously are consistent with the new sales skills introduced during the training.

According to Larry Caretsky, President of Commence Corporation (www.commence.com/mfg/), "By implementing a formalized sales process, distributors and manufacturers are fundamentally changing the way people do their jobs on a daily basis. There will be natural resistance." Caretsky suggests to develop a lean change management plan, the following questions should be answered:

• What motivation do sales people have to use the new system?
• What potential barriers are there to implementation?
• How can I overcome those barriers?
• How will I know if the implementation is successful?
• What do I expect during the transition?
• Who can people go to if they have questions?

In an effort to help industrial distributors and manufacturers thrive, Commence Corporation presents Practices That Pay: Leveraging Information to Achieve Industrial Selling Results, a compendium of smart practices from the leading industrial sales and marketing experts and organizations that are growing in today's challenging environment.

Commence offers industrial companies complete "Freedom Of Choice" to select the solutions and platform that best meets the business requirements of manufacturers and distributors.

Commence Industrial CRM Profiled by leading Manufacturing Journalist

Tinton Falls, NJ -- (ReleaseWire) -- 12/14/2006 -- According to Larry Caretsky, President of Commence Corporation (www.commence.com/mfg./), "There is rarely one central database of customer information that can be accessed and shared among the people who need it to efficiently do their jobs. As a result, acting less like a team, these people act independently when conducting business and are far less effective.

Caretsky, noted in the feature article that "CEOs of these companies often share how their new enterprise resource planning (ERP) system provides them all the information they need, but fail to recognize that ERP systems provide information after the sale, not before or during the sales process. ERP systems provide no value for improving the efficiency of how to sell and service customers. This is one reason that forecast reports are always inaccurate."

According to Thomas R. Cutler, Manufacturing Journalist in a recent issue of Industrial Focus, "The foundation of any quality sales organization starts with the implementation and management of a sales process. These are the steps required by the sales representative to move the prospect from the initial introduction stage to the closing stage. Few industrial CRM systems provide manufacturers with a structured proven sales process or methodology for evaluating and managing each stage of the sales cycle. A pro-active approach to managing the sales process allows the sales manager to monitor and provide guidance during the cycle, as well as help sales representatives focus on the best opportunities."

According to Larry Caretsky, President of Commence Corporation (www.commence.com/mfg./), "There is rarely one central database of customer information that can be accessed and shared among the people who need it to efficiently do their jobs. As a result, acting less like a team, these people act independently when conducting business and are far less effective.

Caretsky, noted in the feature article that "CEOs of these companies often share how their new enterprise resource planning (ERP) system provides them all the information they need, but fail to recognize that ERP systems provide information after the sale, not before or during the sales process. ERP systems provide no value for improving the efficiency of how to sell and service customers. This is one reason that forecast reports are always inaccurate."

Commence Industrial CRM Profiled by Manufacturing Journalist TR Cutler in Manufacturing & Logistics IT

Tinton Falls, NJ -- (ReleaseWire) -- 11/27/2006 -- According to Thomas R. Cutler, Manufacturing Journalist, in a recent issue of Manufacturing and Logistics IT, Industrial CRM is experiencing huge growth. The article may be read in its entirety at http://www.logisticsit.com/absolutenm/templates/article-manufacturing.aspx?articleid=2428&zoneid=2.

Commence offers industrial companies complete "Freedom Of Choice" to select the solutions and platform that best meets the business requirements of manufacturers and distributors.

Industrial leaders often build departmental CRM solutions with the award winning Commence Industrial CRM Framework. These choices are why so many industrial companies choose Commence as the solution for managing customer relationships. All Commence Industrial solutions support mobile or wireless connectivity and integration to back-office accounting and ERP systems.

According to Larry Caretsky, CEO of Commence Corporation, "CRM for manufacturers must streamline sales processes by ensuring sales opportunities are tracked and closed consistently and efficiently with customizable workflow rules that automate stages in the selling process." As part of the lean manufacturing initiative, effective industrial CRM solutions will reduce errors by creating and modifying accurate quotes for prospects and existing clients using a full-featured product catalog that supports complex pricing levels, units of measure and discounts. The technology must allow quotes to be converted to orders, as well as modifying and saving orders until they are ready to be billed as invoices.

Caretsky suggested that another advantage of sector specific CRM is, "The ability improve demand management with sales pipeline visibility allows manufacturers to implement a sales forecasting process that delivers objective insights on sales activity, rather than subjective guessing."

Decreased client response times are also achieved when there is heightened visibility to manufacturing order status, inventory quantities, and current pricing; this empowers customer service staff with critical customer information.

Aftermarket sales are driving significant industrial CRM technology solutions because manufacturers recognize the value-added profit opportunities available with increased service and aftermarket sales. Only when the minutia of industrial customers' content is detailed in a CRM system can aftermarket sales opportunities be effectively exploited.
Understanding the idiosyncratic nature of manufacturing processes, industrial enterprises, and lean manufacturing principles mandates that CRM technology solutions recognize these unique sector traits to realize optimal benefits.

Commence Lean Industrial CRM Teaches Methods to Avoid Dirty Data

Tinton Falls, NJ -- (ReleaseWire) -- 11/22/2006 -- In an effort to help industrial distributors and manufacturers thrive, Commence Corporation presents Practices That Pay: Leveraging Information to Achieve Industrial Selling Results, a compendium of smart practices from the leading industrial sales and marketing experts and organizations that are growing in today's challenging environment.

According to Larry Caretsky, President of Commence Corporation (www.commence.com/mfg./), "One of the most important things you can do when you decide to automate sales is to have one person responsible for the administration of your database. Unless you have a particularly business savvy IT department with hours to spare, you should probably look for an employee within your marketing and sales team. This person would maintain the data quality, reviewing new data that your team enters, and adjusting it as necessary. These people typically become experts at other valuable skills, such as creating reports, making minor customizations, and can be great at training new employees to use the system."

Caretsky suggests that Lean CRM is has many important variables. "With unreliable data, industrial distributors and manufacturers have reported they were unable to reap most of the benefits of a sales and marketing database. Salespeople will quickly realize the data is inaccurate, and revert to old habits to make sure they have the information they need to service customers. Another potential downfall is reduced customer service. The last thing you want is for customers to feel like you don't know them, especially if you've been doing business with them for years. But this is exactly what can happen if customer data is entered incorrectly, out of date, or mismanaged. This is problem is exacerbated by the prevalence of legacy systems in industrial organizations with decades of "dirty data". "

          Informing Business Decisions with Lean CRM   

Informing Business Decisions with Lean CRM

Tinton Falls, NJ -- (ReleaseWire) -- 11/08/2006 -- According to Larry Caretsky, President of Commence Corporation (www.commence.com/mfg./), "Analyze and review the data to inform business decisions is critical for Industrial executives. It is one of the most valuable parts of lean CRM sales automation system is the data accumulated after a few months of use."

To mine this data, smart industrial distributors and manufacturers have followed these steps.

1. Identify the business problem.
2. Mine data to transform data into actionable information.
3. Act on the information.
4. Measure the results.

Caretsky cites an example: A sales manager at an electrical distributor instinctively knew that some customers were getting too much service based on their volume of annual sales. To verify his gut feeling, he mined data in his sales and marketing database to see the number of quotes, calls, and service tickets for each customer and compared it to the total volume of sales in the previous 12 months. A list of 25 customers were obviously taking a lot of the sales team's effort, but delivering comparably little revenue. The sales manager then worked with each account's sales rep to come up with a plan to either increase the revenue from these customers or reduce the time spent servicing them. After 3 months of their efforts, he reviewed the data, and found that significant profitability improvements had been made.

All Commence Industrial solutions support mobile or wireless connectivity and integration to back-office accounting and ERP systems.

According to Larry Caretsky, President of Commence Corporation (www.commence.com/mfg./) "Countless experts and industrial executives have discussed the reasons for the recent changes in industrial sales – increased price pressure, global competition, and reverse auctions, to name a few. Some blame the Internet and its wealth of information, others blame cheap labor and the associated exodus to China and other countries. Instead of focusing on blame, the smartest industrial distributors and manufacturers view the current climate as a business challenge and focus on how to remedy the problem. And the solution is clear to leading industrial distributors and manufacturers, industrial consultants, and sales trainers: get a sales process."

Industrial distributors and manufacturers are not strangers to processes, reengineering, and systems. Plants and warehouses could not operate profitably without them. Manufacturers would not let accounting and purchasing departments improvise. Caretsky insists, "The more important and complex the task, the more likely that the effective principles and processes for successfully completing that task have been defined and codified. Yet, few have systematized their sales departments. Eighty-eight percent of distributor respondents to The Growth Portfolio Study, conducted by Sales Effectiveness Inc. and the YPS Group, do not have a documented, formal sales process. "

Lean CRM Functionality in Automation.com Features Commence Corporation

Tinton Falls, NJ -- (ReleaseWire) -- 10/24/2006 -- Larry Caretsky, President of New Jersey-based Commence, (www.commence.com/mfg) developers of a stand alone industrial CRM solution, suggested that most ERP companies offering CRM have short-falls. According to Caretsky, "Managing the sales cycle and sales representative performance, marketing campaign management and integration with customer support are not provided by ERP tools."

According to Caretsky, "Smart industrial organizations gather several key data points during customer research, which all helps to define a CRM profile.

• How clearly can customers articulate your value proposition?
• How well do customers know products or services?
• What is the customers preferred method of purchasing products and services supplied?
• Who do customers consider to be the preferred supplier products and services?
• When do customers typically purchase products and services?
• Why do customers typically purchase products and services?
• How do customers use products and services?
• Who is the decision maker? Who else influences the purchase?
• How do customers evaluate suppliers?

According to the leading manufacturing journalist, Thomas R. Cutler at Automation.com Lean Industrial CRM is the fastest technology growth element in the manufacturing sector. Cutler asserts, "With up to ten years of continued process improvements on the plant floor, back office, and distribution operations, manufacturers have finally arrived at the front door of customer relationship management (CRM). Still engineering and operations focused, many senior manufacturing executives are strongly resistant and visibly uncomfortable in approaching lean CRM."

Lean Industrial CRM Data Integration Lean by Commence Corporation

Tinton Falls, NJ -- (ReleaseWire) -- 10/23/2006 -- According to Larry Caretsky, President of Commence Corporation (www.commence.com/mfg./), "Integration is a word many vendors are afraid of, and with good reason if their software can't support it. But industrial distributors and manufacturers need to carefully think about integration before they write it off as a "nice-to-have". Depending on your functional requirements, integration may be a necessity."

There are two main kinds of integration to consider: back-end and contact management. If manufacturers choose to integrate sales and marketing database with back-end accounting, ERP, or manufacturing software, then the ability to provide the sales team with a complete view of the customer, potentially including order history, pricing requests, and ship dates. Integration can also significantly help with quote entry, follow-up, and tracking. By increasing the availability of product and pricing information, important tools are given to an industrial sales force to serve customers while gaining efficiencies. Once a manufacturers has a significant volume of reliable data, it can start to feed the data entered in the sales system to the back-end system to facilitate improved purchasing and manufacturing forecasting.

Caretsky suggests that Lean CRM is has many important variables. "If you choose to integrate contact management, then all relevant contact-related data, including calendar, will be available in software such as Microsoft Outlook and able to synchronize to the sales team's PDAs or Pocket PCs. The main driver behind contact management integration is to make sure users don't have to type the same piece of data more than once, an obvious waste of time, and something that most sales people are unlikely to actually do.

          Commence Corporation Profiles Lean Change Management Plan   

Commence Corporation Profiles Lean Change Management Plan

Tinton Falls, NJ -- (ReleaseWire) -- 09/18/2006 -- According to Larry Caretsky, President of Commence Corporation (www.commence.com/mfg./), "By implementing a formalized sales process, distributors and manufacturers are fundamentally changing the way people do their jobs on a daily basis. There will be natural resistance." Caretsky suggests to develop a lean change management plan; the following questions should be answered:

• What motivation do sales people have to use the new system?
• What potential barriers are there to implementation?
• How can I overcome those barriers?
• How will I know if the implementation is successful?
• What do I expect during the transition?
• Who can people go to if they have questions?

One of the best ways that industrial organizations have found to make sure implementations "stick" is to have the management involved. When sales training is reinforced by management, the sales skills taught during training produced a 15% permanent increase in productivity.

Management needs to be involved in more than a cosmetic fashion. A senior member of the management team needs to attend the training, and this same manager should inspect the sales activities for a period of time to make sure they continuously are consistent with the new sales skills introduced during the training.

          Immigrants apply for Chanceless Asylum to commit Crimes   
The Telegraaf daily has requested from the police all documents concerning the arrest of migrants. The request was based on a law which makes this possible. The paper has been supplied with thousands of pages. Part of the migrants from countries which are considered safe apply for asylum knowing that there is hardly any chance of it being granted. While their application is investigated they commit crimes using the asylum-seeker centers as a base for that. The paper writes that the number of such crimes is always far bigger than what the police reports.



          Selection Of Stainless Steel For Surgical Instruments   
Introduction

Stainless steel for surgical & dental instruments which are commonly used have been given under in grade tables related Austentic, Ferritic and Martensitic types of steels.You will find useful information in comparison of different grades.
These table are intended to relate former BS, En, German and Swedish grade designations to the current EN steel numbers, AISI grades (‘grades’ in (brackets) are not a true AISI grades) and UNS (Unified Numbering System) numbers. The table is based on the ‘Wrought’ ie long products (bars etc), flat products (plates etc) steel numbers published in En 10088 and related standards. Castings products use different compositions and so have their own steel numbers in EN 10283. The related castings grades in both EN 10283 and BS 3100 are included in the table.

Applications

Grades AISI 410 / 420 Types and are used extensively for dental and surgical instruments. They offer moderate corrosion resistance in comparison to other types of stainless steel (eg austenitic and duplex grades).They is used for applications where cutting edges, wear resistance and strength are required. A good combination of corrosion resistance and a range of mechanical strength via heat treatment can be expected from these grades.
Long  service lives should be expected from martensitic  stainless steel dental and surgical instruments, properly manufactured and subjected to appropriate cleaning procedures. For example, dental extraction forceps usually have an average service life of 15 years. There are some examples where such instruments have given 30 years service life. Other more delicate instruments and those with cutting edges may be expected to have a much shorter service lives, but they should not be expected to suffer corrosion damage.

The martensitic steel are magnetic, contaning typically 12% chromium and a moderate carbon content.They are hardenable by quenching and tempering like plain carbon steels and find their main application in cutlery manufacture, aerospace and general engineering.

Austenitic Steel
The austenitic steels are non-magnetic and, in addition to chromium typically at the 18% level, contain nickel, which increases their corrosion resistance.They are the most widely used group of stainless steel.

Duplex Steel
Duplex steels are used where combinations of higher strength and corrosion resistance are needed.

Super Austenitic
Super austenitic grades and precipitation hardened grades of steel are also available.
          Introduction-AISI ASTM ASME And UNS,Chemical Compositions of AISI (ASTM/ASME) and UNS austenitic stainless Steel grades,Martensitic and Precipitation hardening steel grades   
Most ASTM and ASME standards list the steel grades by their UNS (Unified Numbering System) numbers but also make reference, where appropriate to the more general AISI (American Iron And Steel Institute) grade designations.These grade numbering systems are widely used in the USA,where they originated and are recognized by most stainless steel specifiers and users.

The American Iron And Steel Institute (AISI) developed designations such as 304, 430 etc and published compositions for these in their "Steel Products Manual" (1974)

These are NOT specifications,but steel grade composition ranges only.

These grades were used by the American Society Testing And Materials (ASTM) to identify grades in a wide range of standards they published for stainless products, such as sheet and plates (ASTM A240), bars (ASTM A276) and tubes (ASTM A269).The compositions of the AISI grades were made more specific with the introduction of the "Unified Numbering System",jointly established by ASTM and SAE (Society Of Automotive Engineers).

This five digit number, preceded by the letter 'S' for most stainless steels,identified the specific variant of the grade.

e.g. 420 being UNS S42000, 630 or 17/4PH being UNS S17400

e.g. 304 being UNS S30400, 304L being UNS S30403

American Society Of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) publish design codes and standards for pressure applications.ASME standards are generally based on the appropriate ASTM standards,but the standard numbers are preceded with the letter 'SA'; rather than just the 'A' of the ASTM standards.

Where UNS grade numbers are used, these are universal, regardless of the product type or the standard in which they appear.

The AISI designations have been adopted in Japan.The aisi number is preceded with the letters SUS e.g. SUS 304.The Japanese have developed variants on some grades for certain products forms e.g. SUS 304J1 for sheet productss.

The composition ranges should always be checked in the appropriate standard.

          Metallurgical And Chemicl Aspects Ot The Surgical Instruments Made From Matensitic Stainless Steel.   
The main necessity of all types of surgical instruments from the surgeon's point of view is Resistance To Corrosion.Hence, while evaluating alloy for an instrument, it is extremely essential to consider this property.However,the other factors,pertaining to manufacturing such as Forge-ability ,Weld-ability,Machine-ability,Cost etc; are also important.

Both martensitic and austenitic stainless steel are used for the manufacturing of surgical instruments.The typical applications include:-

i- AISI-304 (For Sheet Metal Item)
ii-AISI-410 (For Homeostatic Forceps)
iii-AISI-420 (For Scissors And Ronguers)
iv-AISI-440 (For Knives And Dental Pliers)

The carbon content between 0.12 to 0.15 is sufficient for Forceps as the requirement of hardness is up to 40 HRC,but for cutting instruments like Scissors and Knives, the carbon content, must be at least between 0.30 to 0.35%.The Chromium content up to 13% is acceptable, as up to this range, corrosion can be controlled,provided  proper fabrication polishing and cleaning methods are followed.

          Introduction To Stainless Steel   
Stainless steel are iron alloys with a minimum of 12% chromium.Other alloying elements are added to enhance their structure and properties such as formability,strength and toughness.

The main requirement for stainless steel is that they should be corrosion resistant for a specified application or environment.The selection of a particular "type" and "grade" of stainless steel must initially meet the corrosion resistance requirements.Additional mechanical or physical properties may also need to be considered to achieve the overall service performance requirements.

          The Black Rose looks to be moving into the former Benny's Burritos space on Avenue A   


The Black Rose, the bar that recently lost its space at 117 Avenue A, is looking to move a block to the south and reopen in the former corner home of Benny's Burritos, according to paperwork filed ahead of next month's CB3-SLA committee meeting.



In late April, the Marshal took possession of the bar space between Seventh Street and St. Mark's Place on behalf of landlord Steve Croman. There were accusation that Croman forced the bar out, even removing the boiler.

As for Benny's, the restaurant closed on Nov. 29, 2014. The corner space at Sixth Street has sat empty since then. The Benny's awning remains up...


[Photo from yesterday]

Benny's owner Mark Merker said that they were having trouble staying afloat, as costs and rents rose while competition increased from Chipotle and other restaurants that served burritos. Benny's limped along for a few months with a smaller, mostly to-go spot next door. They closed in February 2015. This space became a 99¢ pizza place called 99¢ Pizza, which seems to do brisk business.

There's not much more information about the new Black Rose at this month. The full questionnaire isn't online yet. And it will be somewhat new given that much of the bar's interior ended up on the corner of Avenue A and Seventh Street, where Jerry launched the short-lived Tompkins Square Park Art Bar.

The July CB3-SLA committee meeting is July 17 at 6:30 p.m. at a rather strange venue — Ian Schrager's luxury Public Hotel, 215 Chrystie St.

          User Review: Better than anything AT&T can give you   

someguy805 submitted this review of the Nokia N73:

Overall rating: 4.5 (out of 5)

Many moons ago, I bought a W810i. It was brilliant. It also got dropped in water. Insurance sent me various flavors of braindead and broken phones (Pearl 8100, Samsung SGH-a707, W580i, LG Shine CU720) before office of the President stepped in and gave me $200 to buy this phone. It beats them all.

PROS:
It runs a real smartphone OS, which means real applications and real PDA functionality.

The camera is fantastic. Pictures are crisp and vibrant. Video could be passed off as coming from one of those "Flip Video" sort of cameras.

The media player flat-out makes sense. It's easy to use, lets you send it to the background, and holding a button (with the most recent firmware) immediately brings up the 'Now Playing'.

Battery life has not been a problem. It's not quite the ten days my old
W810i managed, but it's by no means bad. I use it moderately and charge it every third day. Charging is incredibly quick.

At the maximum brightness the screen is uncomfortably bright, which is a very good thing.

In the Nokia tradition, RF, signal acquisition and holding, and voice quality are stellar. Calls are loud and clear, and my mom can't be convinced I'm not on a landline. The speakers on the top are loud and clear.

CONS:
The keyboard is a bit cramped, but I'm used to that sort of thing. The joystick is a bit low-rent.

The front camera is dreadful, but you already knew that.

It uses Nokia's smaller, spindlier charging connector (but comes with an adapter - don't bin that old charger just yet) and Pop-Port. They're not flawed, but a 3.5mm headset jack and miniUSB are better at this sort of thing.

It is quite thick.

Symbian OS v9.1 requires applications to be signed. There is no surefire workaround for this. It's occasionally slow.

No SDHC support means you're limited to 2GB, and miniSD means yet another adapter.

          User Review: Best Nokia ever   

tspierings submitted this review of the Nokia N73:

Overall rating: 4.5 (out of 5)

This is the first smartphone that can really replace my iPaq pocketpc. I own this device 6 weeks and it is great.

The size of the device is just within the maximum limits to be able to carry it in the pocket. (I find the N80 a little too bulky)

Reception and sound quality outstanding. In combination with the Bluetooth Nokia carkit CK7W it works superbe. Hardly noise and no echo.

As an MP3 player this can absolutely compete with my iPod (unfortunately MiniSD Cards do not come in bigger than 2 Gb yet).

Screen is superb with QVGA. Finally it is usefull with TomTom GPS software.

Multitasking works flawlessly. When I am using TomTom with the bluetooth GPS receiver, I can answer any phonecall in between (even with my CK7W bluetooth carkit).

Keyboard is OK. In some reviews it was reported as troublesome but I find it good to work with.

The camera is fairly good. It is the best quality I have ever seen in a smartphone. However, startup is very slow and in poor light conditions the picture quality is poor. Do not expect too much of the flash.

A few not-so-good points.

The Email application is crap. I cannot even delete messages. The same applies to the calendar application. (The default Calendar applications on Palm and PocketPc are crap as well). However, there are excellent alternatives for this. You should immediately purchase Papyrus calendar application and ProfiMail email application. Both are very good.

I am not so happy with voice dialling. You can no longer save your own voice tags. However, this built-in intelligence does not work very well in some languages and frequently does not find a match.

Where Nokia really missed it is with the accessories. There is no (powered) desk stand available. Why? All previous Nokias had this. Also, there is no powered car holder available. Why? Fortunately, Brodit has just launched a powered car holder that fits very well.

Conclusion: Great mobile with all necessary PDA functions

          User Review: Very Good Phone   

themightylife submitted this review of the Nokia N73:

Overall rating: 4 (out of 5)

I bought this phone from an Ebay store for use with Cingular. I have had it for about a week and, so far, I am pretty happy.

The multimedia functions of the phone are great. Music, video, photos, slide shows, etc. I have to say that the photos are only good in the best conditions. I was dissapointed that the camera was not nearly as sharp as my very tiny, 2.0mp Sony camera. The gallery mode is awesome!

The size is pretty nice. It is almost the exact dimensions of a SLVR (but twice as thick).

The biggest issue is that I still get those annoying 'out of memory' warnings that I got on my 6682. This is with all applications closed and plenty of room on my phon and SD card. What is going on Nokia?

If you are a fan of the Symbian OS and you want to carry one device that will do photos, music, internet, video and, oh yeah, a phone... This is a good choice..

Pros:
Size
Multimedia
Pretty Good Camera
Great Screen
Stereo speakers
Lots of Symbian apps

Cons:
Memory errors.
earpice volume could be louder
Nokia Pop-port connector ( I am not a fan)

Des Art of news

 

Hello le world ! Ça y’est après un moment d’absence qui semblait être quasi une année sabbatique me revoilà sur mon blog… Ouf encore une fois après des lustres je réapparais, aller la j’ai une bonne excuse, car j’ai le bonheur d’être un Papa comblé d’un petit « Basil » avec ma Femme Charlotte. Et le temps qui passait déjà bien vite avec la joie d’être parents passe encore plus vite…Alors sur le net me voila quasi disparut, Même sur Facebook je ne viens plus que poster des articles de la RTBF infos ou des passages de livres qui m’interpelles…Oui c’est vrai que ce qui me connaisse doivent se demander ce qui m’arrives, héhé un ami m’as même demander si mon compte avait été pirater…C’est juste que je me rend compte que je n’ai plus le temps de poser des news de ce que je fait en ce moment, et au lieu de ne rien mettre, j’ai choisit de laisser des news en vrac…Pas toutes les news, plutôt celles qui parles de « Luttes de classes » et sur l’emploie, A force d’écouter « La bas si j’y suis » les reportages des amis de Daniel Mermet depuis des années, tout ça a fait un bout de chemin sur ce que je pense… et ce sacré Dalaï-Lama et le bouddhisme que Toxic m’as exposer et le temps qui passe, le fait de n’être sur Terre que pour une vie a preuve du contraire…tout ça me rappelle a quel point j’aime les êtres humains comme le Docteur Who et a quel point Alain Souchon a tout dit avec son titre «  foule sentimental soif d’idéal » et a se demander si la société veux nous faire devenir une « star » de demain pour juste être reconnut ou ne devrions pas juste se reconnaitre soi même grâce a des instants dénués de superflus…car maintenant que j’ai un travail qui me passionne, et que je suis heureux avec ma femme et mon fils, que j’ai de quoi payer les factures et avoir un peu d’argent pour m’acheter des bêtises en plus collectionneur de Brol…Je me suis dis qu’il est temps de penser au monde (enfin encore plus car j’y pensait déjà ^^) sinon je ne ferait que penser a m'acheter du confort en plus et encore et toujours plus…

 

Enfin c’est que depuis un petit bout je ressens…je n’ai pas le temps de tout noter mais c’est plus ou moins l’idée…héhé…Yehh a très vite les amis ! je refile sur mes dessins…A très vite au détour d’un salon, d’une limonade sans alcool, d’un tardis ou d’une chaise en plastique de jardin…aller quoi le beau temps arrives !

 

A la votre !

          Announcing MCDU – The Media Center Decoder Utility (replaces VMCD)   

For Vista, TV Pack and Windows 7

Download  at http://www.whittakermoore.com/mcdu.exe

image 

A couple of big new features.

  1. Take Ownership: To work round the issues with codecs being secure in Windows 7 and in some versions of Vista with TV Pack installed this option will take ownership of the default codec files and rename them to a .mcdu.bak file if you choose a non-standard codec If you then choose to go back to the standard decoders the utility will rename them back..

WARNING CHANGING THE DEFAULT MICROSOFT CODEC FOR LIVE TV CAN BREAK OTHER APPLICATIONS. RECOMMENDED ONLY FOR A PURELYMEDIA CENTER SETUP

  1. Show decoders not named video or audio. By default MCDU will show all codecs that have Video Decoder or Audio Decoder in the title – even if they are not marked as Media Center decoders. By checking this option al other decoders will be included. Use at your own risk.

image

If you are running Windows 7 Take Ownership will be checked at start up.

image image

IMPORTANT IF YOU HAVE ALREADY RENAMED THE DEFAULT MICROSOF CODEC FILES THEN THE AUTO RENAMING WILL NOT WORK. RENAME THEM BACK BEFORE USING THE UTILITY.

And finally the holy grail…. FFDSHOW being used for live tv in 7 Media Center. To get FFDShow to recognise Live TV you will need to enable the MPEG in AVI option.

 

Download  at http://www.whittakermoore.com/mcdu.exe

32 bit decoders have been tested. Its been coded to work with 64 bit but I’ve not been able to test it and I am not aware of any working 64 it decoders for TV other than the MS ones

Use at your own risk but I hope you find this useful

Garry.

p.s. almost forgot for TV Pack users you will now see tow decoders listed for both Video and Audio. This is because the TV Pack allows for a fallback decoder for formats the main decoder cannot work with.
          Arcsoft Total Media Theatre 3 Platinum First Impressions   
tmt3

Up until recently I have used Cyberlink Power DVD  Ultra as my primary playback software for Blu-Ray/HDDVD. Whilst I have not been impressed with it’s integration into Media Centre it was on my setup way ahead of the competition in terms of stutter free playback.

I have often cast envious eyes at the integration of Arcsoft Total media Theatre (TMT) into Media Center but for a long while I could not get it even to start up in Vista. To be fair this was mainly due to being on the beta programme for Vista SP2 and was resolved in the final release of SP2. What was not resolved was a general level of flakiness in playback on my setup. It used to exhibit very jerky movement and struggled to keep up with playback. Now I have a very good setup, with a Phenom x4 processor and a very reasonable ATI graphic chip set, so it really had no excuse.  Much trawling of websites didn’t offer any solutions with many people pointing to the fact I use an external Blu-Ray drive as a likely cause.

Anyway all that has changed with the release of TMT3. Rock solid playback. No jerkiness at all., excellent sound(with one gotcha of which more later) and a fantastic image. On top of which the integration into Media centre is just excellent. I know it is actually shelling out to an external application but it just doesn’t feel like it is.

My only gripe is that I use an sp-dif output to my speaker system and whilst the volume control in Media Center happily controls this, the one in TMT3 doesn’t. Funnily enough mute does still work.

Ignoring that one gripe though it is a very solid contender for the Cyberlink crown especially as it still supports HDDVD which Cyberlink doesn’t in its recent incarnations.

I would go as far as saying it is now my player of choice.

Note: only the platinum edition supports Blu-Ray/HDDVD and as ever with the costs of licensing the included technologies the price is a little steep but google for discount codes.

          Kansas State Record for Hail Video   
I'm not the greatest videographer, but here's the September 15th Video I shot with the 5D Mark II of the hail storm in Goddard, Kansas. Listen at 1:05-1:07 as you can hear a stone whizzing through the air before it impacts. I'm beginning to think around 8 inches is all the world will ever be able to successfully measure as larger stones will not be able to hold as they impact, unless the ground is saturated and can absorb them somehow. There were stones >8 inches.....probably a 10" one somewhere that day, but for now 7.75 inches is where the Kansas state record hail stone will stand!



See my previous blog post for pictures of this storm after the video!

          Storm Chasers Show   
Reed Timmer + Aurora, Nebraska Tornado

Here is a preview:




Here's a fact you probably didn't know about Reed: He paid for his new vehicle out of his own pocket!

Brandon Ivey and Matt Hughes will be on the show this year too, who are a couple of chaser friends near the Wichita, Kansas area. Brandon is a stand-up, laid-back guy who I always give hell to about how close he seems to get to tornadoes after dark (via radar). Matt is also a great guy and together, make solid forecasts on tricky days and seem to always bag the good stuff.

Despite the crappy year for most(not for us!), there will be some unbelievable footage on the show. Reed and crew nailed every single major day this year (April 26, April 29, May 13th, June 5, June 15th, June 17th) and took direct hits from tornadoes on 3 of those days...2 of those...they were the first ever to scan the vertical wind shear inside of a tornado. Data collected from all of these intercepts, including the radar data, will eventually help save lives in the future from tornadoes.

In other news, I have just found out via printing at whcc.com that my monitor is way off on calibration. So if your monitor is calibrated correctly, my images probably seem very dark. To fix this problem, I'm calibrating it today with a ridiculously expensive program, so that I can print some photos in the future.
          Photo of the Day, New HD Tornado Video   
newaurora01web

Taken just west the Iams pet food plant (which was partially hit by the tornado) just west of Aurora, Nebraska on June 17th. The tornado slowly wraps in rain as it ropes out in front of us, and is shot at 10 mm. It still is mind-blowing of all of the chasers on this tornado on Spotter Network alone, yet only Jeff Snyder and ourselves reported it via it (we reported it twice). Makes you wonder why anyone uses this program other than, "Look at me guys, I'm on Spotter Network!"

Then April 26th, Roll/Crawford, Oklahoma tornadoes in HD is below (click on the HD button). I've been slowly working on a DVD that should be available sometime by the first of October of this year's chases, plus Greensburg tornado in 2007, Quinter, Manhattan tornadoes in 2008 and other dates that aren't coming to mind at the moment.


          June 20th Account, More June 17th Photos/Video, June 15th Photos   
On June 20th, a warm front extended over parts of Central Kansas during the day with a lot of cloud cover and convection still ongoing from the warm air advection regime the night before, so I held little hope in chasing this day due to extensive cloud cover limiting instability, but the shear looked great for C/E. Kansas. With yet another cap bust in Iowa 2 days prior, and still high off of the June 17th Grand Island/Aurora supercell and tornado, I blew the day off for the most part. Darin, on the other hand, didn't and intercepted a storm that trekked from Wichita to where he intercepted it near Emporia. He called me telling me the structure was amazing, then called back again to say he saw a brief tornado...which I relayed to the NWS in Topeka. I then flew out the door and intercepted it near Princeton. I could see a funnel cloud off to my SW, so I again called the NWS in Topeka and gave them the play-by-play as it unfolded. At one point, the funnel extended 7/8ths of the way down and I was sure there was ground circulation somewhere and it warranted a brief touchdown report. As I was on the phone, I told the gentleman to hold on, so I could get some proof and by that time, it had began to rope out and formed a new area of rotation just to the east. That's where this video starts.



A couple of pictures of it shortly after the video:

A few pics of a wall cloud that I was 99 percent sure was heading towards being outflow dominant on June 15th (video is in my previous blog entry below). Taken west of Kinsley, Kansas.

And finally, more June 17th Aurora Video and another photo, below. Next year, I plan on owning the Canon 5D Mark II with an assortment of "L" quality lenses so I can get around the noise factor and shoot higher quality photos. Darin is planning on purchasing the Sony FX1000 for better low light and higher quality video. More blog entries coming and additional photos I've yet to process sometime this summer.

This is a timelapse (and damage footage) of the Aurora Tornado shortly after the first video I posted in my previous blog entry.

          Justin Bieber Ripe For Spoofing, 'Stevie TV' Star Says   

'Guys are like, 'I don't know what it is, but you're really hot,' comedian Stevie Ryan says of playing the teen superstar on VH1 show.
By Christina Garibaldi

<P>Stevie Ryan may make fun of <a href="http://www.mtv.com/music/artist/bieber_justin/artist.jhtml">Justin Bieber</a> on her new VH1 show <a href="http://www.vh1.com/shows/stevie_tv/series.jhtml" target="_blank">"Stevie TV,"</a> but the actress and the pop star actually have something cool in common: They were both discovered on YouTube. </P><P> </P><P>Ryan began her career impersonating celebrities and creating her own characters on her YouTube <a href="http://www.youtube.com/user/stevieryan" target="_blank">channel</a> and instantly became an Internet star. Now the 26-year-old comedian gets to do her routines on VH1, portraying some of today's biggest celebs and reality TV stars. </P><P> </P><P><embed src="http://media.mtvnservices.com/mgid:uma:video:mtv.com:752244/cp~vid%3D752244%26uri%3Dmgid%3Auma%3Avideo%3Amtv.com%3A752244" width="460" height="260" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowFullScreen="true" allowScriptAccess="always" base="."></embed> </P><P> </P><P>"It's just a female's perspective on pop culture, really, at least that's the way I think about it," Ryan told MTV News on Tuesday. "It's really just kind of making fun of pop culture, what's happening in it, just making fun of these celebrities that are rewarded for bad behavior." </P><P> </P><P>So far on "Stevie TV," Ryan has created a music video that mocks <a href="http://www.mtv.com/music/artist/perry_katy/artist.jhtml">Katy Perry</a>'s "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F)," gotten into character as <a href="http://www.mtv.com/music/artist/lady_gaga/artist.jhtml">Lady Gaga</a> and done some cross-dressing to get into one of her favorite roles, Justin Bieber. </P><P> </P><P>Ryan explained that Bieber has been the most fun to play "because I always tell everybody how guys and girls always like me when I'm Justin Bieber. ... Girls are like, 'You're so cute, like, are you really a <i>girl</i>?' And then guys are like, 'I don't know what it is, but you're really hot.' But I really like playing everybody," she laughed. </P><P> </P><P>And though she may poke fun at celebrities, Ryan said she's really a fan of most of the stars ... except maybe one. </P><P> </P><P>"I just thought, 'What a great way to kind of show that this is what the younger generation is growing up with, that who little girls like, is Kim Kardashian,' " Ryan said. "It's just observing these weird behaviors and finding a place for them that makes sense because you can always make fun of Kim Kardashian &#8212; she has a big butt, she made a sex tape &#8212; but at the same time you have to step back and look at the big picture; people are actually wanting to be like this." </P><P> </P><P>As for future episodes, Ryan really wants to impersonate a certain Young Money rapper. "I would like to do <a href="http://www.mtv.com/music/artist/minaj__nicki/artist.jhtml">Nicki Minaj,"</a> Ryan revealed. "There's nothing that I want to make fun of about her, because I'm obsessed with her and I really, really love her." </P><P> </P><P>Asked if she's gotten any backlash yet for the sometimes harsh jokes on her show, Ryan said she hasn't, but she's ready if it comes her way. </P><P> </P><P>"It hasn't happened before and I'd give a flying f--- about what any of them have to say," Ryan said. "Because I'm just doing my job just like they are and so whatever, if anyone has anything to say, bring it!" </P><P> </P><P><a href="http://www.vh1.com/shows/stevie_tv/series.jhtml" target="_blank">"Stevie TV"</a> airs Sundays at 11 p.m. ET on VH1. </P><P> </P><P><i>What do you think of "Stevie TV"? Let us know in the comments!</i> </p>

          Comment on sp_SrvPermissions & sp_DBPermissions V6.0 Finally! by Albert   
Hi , Great Scripts. But I have found an issue, when you run sp_DBpermissions @DBName ='ALL' in a server with Databases in an AlwaysOn Group that are the replica in the server and are configured in ReadOnly mode. "Msg 978, Level 14, State 1, Line 17 The target database ('TEST_AG') is in an availability group and is currently accessible for connections when the application intent is set to read only. For more information about application intent, see SQL Server Books Online." To solve this, I have changed the lines like [code language="sql"]FOR SELECT name FROM sys.databases ORDER BY name[/code] By [code language="sql"]FOR SELECT d.name FROM sys.databases d LEFT OUTER JOIN sys.dm_hadr_availability_replica_states hars ON d.replica_id = hars.replica_id WHERE ISNULL(hars.role_desc, 'PRIMARY') = 'SECONDARY' ORDER BY name[/code] And seems that it works fine.

          JBoss Tools Team: JBoss Tools 4.5.0.AM1 for Eclipse Oxygen.0   

Happy to announce 4.5.0.AM1 (Developer Milestone 1) build for Eclipse Oxygen.0.

Downloads available at JBoss Tools 4.5.0 AM1.

What is New?

Full info is at this page. Some highlights are below.

Server Tools

EAP 7.1 Server Adapter

A server adapter has been added to work with EAP 7.1. It’s currently released in Tech-Preview mode only, since the underlying WildFly 11 continues to be under active development with substantial opportunity for breaking changes. This new server adapter includes support for incremental management deployment like it’s upstream WildFly 11 counterpart.

Removal of Event Log and other Deprecated Code

The Event Log view has been removed. The standard eclipse log is to be used for errors and other important messages regarding errors during server state transitions.

Hibernate Tools

Hibernate Search Support

We are glad to announce the support of the Hibernate Search. The project was started by Dmitrii Bocharov in the Google Summer Code program and has been successfully transferred in the current release of the JBoss Tools from Dmitrii’s repository into the jbosstools-hibernate repository and has become a part of the JBoss family of tools.

Functionality

The plugin was thought to be some kind of a Luke tool inside Eclipse. It was thought to be more convenient than launching a separate application, and picks up the configuration directly from your Hibernate configuration.

Two options were added to the console configurations submenu: Index Rebuild and Index Toolkit. They become available when you use hibernate search libraries (they exist in the build path of your application, e.g. via maven).

Configuration menu items
Index Rebuild

When introducing Hibernate Search in an existing application, you have to create an initial Lucene index for the data already present in your database.

The option "Index Rebuild" will do so by re-creating the Lucene index in the directory specified by the hibernate.search.default.indexBase property.

Hibernate Search indexed entities
Hibernate Search configuration properties
Index Toolkit

"Open Index Toolkit" submenu of the console configuration opens an "Index Toolkit" view, which has three tabs: Analyzers, Explore Documents, Search.

Analyzers

This tab allows you to view the result of work of different Lucene Analyzers. The combo-box contains all classes in the workspace which extend org.apache.lucene.analysis.Analyzer, including custom implementations created by the user. While you type the text you want to analyse, the result immediately appears on the right.

Analyzers
Explore Documents

After creating the initial index you can now inspect the Lucene Documents it contains.

All entities annotated as @Indexed are displayed in the Lucene Documents tab. Tick the checkboxes as needed and load the documents. Iterate through the documents using arrows.

Lucene Documents inspection
Searching

The plugin passes the input string from the search text box to the QueryParser which parses it using the specified analyzer and creates a set of search terms, one term per token, over the specified default field. The result of the search pulls back all documents which contain the terms and lists them in a table below.

Search tab

Docker

Docker Client Upgrade

The version of docker-client used by the Docker Tooling plug-ins has been upgraded to 6.1.1 for the 3.0.0 release of the Docker Tooling feature.

Forge

Forge Runtime updated to 3.7.1.Final

The included Forge runtime is now 3.7.1.Final. Read the official announcement here.

          Maximilian and Jonas: EMF Forms and EMF Client Platform 1.13.0 released!   

We are happy to announce that together with Oxygen, we have released EMF Forms and EMF Client Platform 1.13.0! The number “13” should actually mean bad luck, however, 1.13.0 is the 14th release (starting with 1.0.0), so we are not superstitious here 🙂
We want to thank our continuously active team of 14 contributors (35 contributors over all) for completing on 43 bug reports and feature requests.
It is amazing to look at the on-going histroy of this successful project, since version 1.0.0, we have completed over 1.4k feature requests and bug reports, 38 contributors have submitted 10k commits and developed 640k lines of code. EMF Forms continues to be one of the most active projects at Eclipse.

In case you don’t know EMF Forms: It is a framework focused on the creation of form-based UIs. EMF Client Platform is designed to support the development of applications based on an EMF data model. If you are not yet familiar with EMF Forms, please refer to this tutorial for a introduction.

We have also submitted a getting started talk to EclipseCon Europe 2017, so make sure to be there. By the way, today is the deadline for the early bird submission, so get your own talks in as well.

EMF Forms and EMF Client Platform are part of Eclipse Modeling Tools Oxygen, but you can also find the new release on our download pages:

          Get Custom Fields using Quickbooks SDK   

Originally posted on: http://geekswithblogs.net/dnoderer/archive/2017/05/28/get-custom-fields-using-quickbooks-sdk.aspx

I was attempting to get a custom field that a customer had added to Items.

It took me a while to figure out it is simple but obscure and basically just requires adding a child element of OwnerID = 0.

Once I found it, the QB SDK documentation was clear after looking at this article for getting Customer custom info:

Described here:https://developer-static.intuit.com/qbSDK-Current/doc/html/wwhelp/wwhimpl/js/html/wwhelp.htm.

One thing is that the DataExtRet element contains custom fields and only exists if that Item has data for the custom field(s) present.

Request for item query:

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<?qbxml version="13.0"?>
- <QBXML>
-   <QBXMLMsgsRq onError="stopOnError">
      <ItemQueryRq requestID="2">
         <OwnerID>0</OwnerID>
  </ItemQueryRq>
  </QBXMLMsgsRq>
</QBXML>

Environment:
  • The customer is running Enterprise 16
  • I'm using SDK type library is QBXMLRP2 1.0 Type Library, File Version 13.0.R4000 + 10
  • The app is a WPF/C# desktop billing application.
  • Currently using  Visual Studio 2015 Enterprise.


          Writing a Voice Activated SharePoint Todo List - IoT App on RPi   

Originally posted on: http://geekswithblogs.net/hroggero/archive/2017/05/16/writing-a-voice-activated-sharepoint-todo-list---iot-app.aspx

Ever wanted to write a voice activated system on an IoT device to keep track of your “todo list”, hear your commands being played back, and have the system send you a text message with your todo list when it’s time to walk out the door?  Well, I did. In this blog post, I will provide a high level overview of the technologies I used, why I used them, a few things I learned along the way, and partial code to assist with your learning curve if you decide to jump on this.  I also had the pleasure of demonstrating this prototype at Microsoft’s Community Connections in Atlanta in front of my colleagues.

How It Works

I wanted to build a system using 2 Raspberry Pis (one running Windows 10 IoT Core, and another running Raspbian) that achieved the following objectives:

  • * Have 2 RPis that communicate through the Azure Service Bus
    This was an objective of mine, not necessarily a requirement; the intent was to have two RPis running different Operating Systems communicate asynchronously without sharing the same network
  • * Learn about the Microsoft Speech Recognition SDK
    I didn’t want to send data to the cloud for speech recognition; so I needed an SDK on the RPi to perform this function; I chose the Microsoft Speech Recognition SDK for this purpose

    * Communicate to multiple cloud services without any SDK so that I could program the same way on Windows and Raspbian (Twilio, Azure Bus, Azure Table, SharePoint Online)
    I also wanted to minimize the learning curve of finding which SDK could run on a Windows 10 IoT Core, and Raspbian (Linux); so I used Enzo Unified to abstract the APIs and instead send simple HTTPS commands allowing me to have an SDK-less development environment (except for the Speech Recognition SDK). Seriously… go find an SDK for SharePoint Online for Raspbian and UWP (Windows 10 IoT Core).

The overall solution looks like this:

Technologies

In order to achieve the above objectives, I used the following bill of materials:

Technology Comment Link
2x Raspberry Pi 2 Model B Note that one RPi runs on Windows 10 IoT Core, and the other runs Raspbian http://amzn.to/2qnM6w7
Microphone I tried a few, but the best one I found for this project was the Mini AKIRO USB Microphone http://amzn.to/2pGbBtP
Speaker I also tried a few, and while there is a problem with this speaker on RPi and Windows, the Logitech Z50 was the better one http://amzn.to/2qrNkop
USB Keyboard I needed a simple way to have keyboard and mouse during while traveling, so I picked up the iPazzPort Mini Keyboard; awesome… http://amzn.to/2rm0FOh
Monitor You can use an existing monitor, but I also used the portable ATian 7 inch display. A bit small, but does the job. http://amzn.to/2pQ5She 
IoT Dashboard Utility that allows you to manage your RPis running Windows; make absolutely sure you run the latest build; it should automatically upgrade, but mine didn’t. http://bit.ly/2rmCWOU
Windows 10 IoT Core The Microsoft O/S used on one of the RPis; Use the latest build; mine was 15063; if you are looking for instructions on how to install Windows from a command prompt, the link provided proved useful  http://bit.ly/2pG9gik
Raspbian Your RPi may be delivered with an SD card preloaded with the necessary utilities to install Raspbian; connecting to a wired network makes the installation a breeze. http://bit.ly/2rbnp7u
Visual Studio 2015 I used VS2015, C#, to build the prototype for the Windows 10 IoT Core RPi http://bit.ly/2e6ZGj5
Python 3 On the Raspbian RPi, I used Python 3 to code. http://bit.ly/1L2Ubdb
Enzo Unified I installed and configured an Enzo Unified instance (version 1.7) in the Azure cloud; for Enzo to talk to SharePoint Online, Twilio, Azure Service Bus and Azure Storage, I also needed accounts with these providers. You can try Enzo Unified for free for 30 days. http://bit.ly/2rm4ymt

 

Things to Know

Creating a prototype involving the above technologies will inevitably lead you to collect a few nuggets along the way. Here are a few.

Disable Windows 10 IoT Core Updates

While disabling updates is generally speaking not recommended, IoT projects usually require a predictable environment that does not reboot in the middle of a presentation. In order to disable Windows Updates on this O/S I used information published Mike Branstein on his blog: http://bit.ly/2rcOXt9

Try different hardware, and keep your receipts…

I had to try a few different components to find the right ones; the normally recommended S-150 USB Logitech speakers did not work for me; I lost all my USB ports and network connectivity as soon as I plugged it in. Neither did the JLab USB Laptop speakers. I also tried the 7.1 Channel USB External Sound Card but was unable to make it work (others were successful). For audio input, I also tried the VAlinks Mini Flexible USB microphone; while it worked well, it picked up too much noise compared to the AKIRO, and became almost unusable in a room with 20 people where you have background noise.

Hotel WiFi Connections

This was one of the most frustrating part of this whole experience on Windows 10 IoT Core. You should know that this operating system does not currently come equipped with a browser. This means that you cannot easily connect to a hotel network since this usually requires starting a browser so that you can enter a user id and password provided by the hotel. Further more, since there is also no possible way to “forget” a previously registered network, you can find yourself in a serious bind… I first purchased the Skyroam Mobile Hotspot, hoping it would provide the answer. Unfortunately the only time I tried it, in Tampa Florida, the device could not obtain a connection. So I ended up adding a browser object into my UWP application and force it to refresh a specific image every time I start the app; this will force the hotel login page to show up when needed. I am still looking for a good solution to this problem.

Speech Privacy Policy on Windows

Because parts of the code I am running leverages the underlying APIs of Cortana, it seems that you must accept the Cortana privacy policy; this is required only the first time you run the application, but is obviously a major nightmare for applications you may want to ship. I am not aware of any programmatic workaround at this time. This stackoverflow post provides information about this policy and how to accept it.

How It Looks Like

A picture is worth a thousand words… so here is the complete setup:

20170502_225941

C# Code

Since this is an ongoing prototype I will not share the complete code at this time; however I will share a few key components/techniques I used to make this work.

Speech Recognition

I used both continuous dictation speech recognition, and grammar-based recognition from the Microsoft Speech Recognition API. The difference is that the first one gives you the ability to listen to “anything” being said, and the other will only give you a set of results that match the expected grammar. Both methods give you a degree of confidence so you can decide if the command/text input was sufficiently clear. The following class provides a mechanism for detecting input either through continuous dictation or using a grammar file. The timeout ensures that you do not wait forever. This code also returns the confidence level of the capture.

}

For example, if you want to wait for a “yes/no” confirmation, with a 3 second timeout, you would call the above code as such:

var yesNoResponse = await (new VoiceInput()).WaitForText(3, YESNO_FILE);

And the yes/no grammar file looks like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<grammar
  version="1.0"
  xml:lang="en-US"
  root="enzoCommands"
  xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2001/06/grammar"
  tag-format="semantics/1.0">

  <rule id="root">
    <item>
      <ruleref uri="#enzoCommands"/>
      <tag>out.command=rules.latest();</tag>
    </item>
  </rule>

  <rule id="enzoCommands">
    <one-of>
      <item> yes </item>
      <item> yep </item>
      <item> yeah </item>
      <item> no </item>
      <item> nope </item>
      <item> nah </item>
    </one-of>
  </rule>

</grammar>

Calling Enzo Unified using HTTPS to Add a SharePoint Item

Another important part of the code is its ability to interact with other services through Enzo Unified, so that no SDK is needed on the UWP application. For an overview on how to access SharePoint Online through Enzo Unified, see this previous blog post.

The following code shows how to easily add an item to a SharePoint list through Enzo Unified. Posting this request to Enzo requires two parameters (added as headers) called “name” and “data” (data is an XML string containing the column names and values to be added as a list item).

public static async Task SharePointAddItem(string listName, string item)
{
            string enzoCommand = "/bsc/sharepoint/addlistitemraw";
            List<KeyValuePair<string, string>> headers = new List<KeyValuePair<string, string>>();

            string data = string.Format("<root><Title>{0}</Title></root>", item);

            headers.Add(new KeyValuePair<string, string>("name", listName));
            headers.Add(new KeyValuePair<string, string>("data", data));

            await SendRequestAsync(HttpMethod.Post, enzoCommand, headers);
}

And the SendRequestAsync method below shows you how to call Enzo Unified. Note that I added two cache control filters to avoid HTTP caching, and additional flags for calling Enzo Unified on an HTTPS port where a self-signed certificate is installed.

private static async Task<string> SendRequestAsync(HttpMethod method, string enzoCommand, List<KeyValuePair<string, string>> headers)
{
            string output = "";
            var request = EnzoUnifiedRESTLogin.BuildHttpWebRequest(method, enzoCommand, headers);
           
            var filter = new Windows.Web.Http.Filters.HttpBaseProtocolFilter();
            if (IGNORE_UNTRUSTEDCERT_ERROR)
            {
                filter.IgnorableServerCertificateErrors.Add(Windows.Security.Cryptography.Certificates.ChainValidationResult.Untrusted);
                filter.IgnorableServerCertificateErrors.Add(Windows.Security.Cryptography.Certificates.ChainValidationResult.InvalidName);
            }
            filter.CacheControl.ReadBehavior = Windows.Web.Http.Filters.HttpCacheReadBehavior.MostRecent;
            filter.CacheControl.WriteBehavior = Windows.Web.Http.Filters.HttpCacheWriteBehavior.NoCache;

            Windows.Web.Http.HttpClient httpClient = new Windows.Web.Http.HttpClient(filter);

            try
            {
                using (var response = await httpClient.SendRequestAsync(request))
                {
                    output = await response.Content.ReadAsStringAsync();
                }
            }
            catch (Exception ex)
            {
                System.Diagnostics.Debug.WriteLine(" ** Send Http request error: " + ex.Message);
            }
            return output;
}

Last but not least, the BuildHttpWebRequest method looks like this; it ensures that the proper authentication headers are added, along with the authentication identifier for Enzo:

public static Windows.Web.Http.HttpRequestMessage BuildHttpWebRequest(Windows.Web.Http.HttpMethod httpmethod, string uri, List<KeyValuePair<string,string>> headers)
{
            bool hasClientAuth = false;

            Windows.Web.Http.HttpRequestMessage request = new Windows.Web.Http.HttpRequestMessage();

            request.Method = httpmethod;
            request.RequestUri = new Uri(ENZO_URI + uri);

            if (headers != null && headers.Count() > 0)
            {
                foreach (KeyValuePair<string, string> hdr in headers)
                {
                    request.Headers[hdr.Key] = hdr.Value;
                }
            }

            if (!hasClientAuth)
                request.Headers["authToken"] = ENZO_AUTH_GUID;

            return request;
}

Text to Speech

There is also the Text to Speech aspect, where the system speaks back what it heard, before confirming and acting on the command. Playing back is actually a bit strange in the sense that it requires a UI thread. In addition, it seems that Windows 10 IoT Core and Raspberry Pi don’t play nice together; it seems that every time a playback occurs, a loud tick can be heard before and after. A solution appears to be using USB speakers, but none worked for me. The code below simply plays back a specific text and waits a little while in an attempt to give enough time for the playback to finish (the code is non-blocking, so the SpinWait attempts to block the code until completion of the playback).

private async Task Say(string text)
{
            SpeechSynthesisStream ssstream = null;

            try
            {
                SpeechSynthesizer ss = new SpeechSynthesizer();
                ssstream = await ss.SynthesizeTextToStreamAsync(text);
            }
            catch (Exception exSay)
            {
                Debug.WriteLine(" ** SPEECH ERROR (1) ** - " + exSay.Message);
            }

            var task1 = this.Dispatcher.RunAsync(Windows.UI.Core.CoreDispatcherPriority.Normal, async () =>
            {
                try
                {
                    await media.PlayStreamAsync(ssstream);
                }
                catch (Exception exSay)
                {
                    Debug.WriteLine(" ** SPEECH ERROR (2) ** - " + exSay.Message);
                }
            });

            // Wait a little for the speech to complete
            System.Threading.SpinWait.SpinUntil(() => 1 == 0, lastInput.Length * 150);

}

Calling the above code is trivial:

await Say("I am listening");

 

Python

The code in python was trivial to build; this RPi was responsible for monitoring events in the Azure Service Bus and turning on/off the LED attached to it. The following pseudo code shows how to call Enzo Unified from Python without using any SDK:

import sys
import urllib
import urllib2
import requests

enzourl_receiveMsg=”http://…/bsc/azurebus/receivedeletefromsubscription”
enzo_guid=”secretkeygoeshere”
topicName=”enzoiotdemo-general”
subName=”voicelight”

while 1=1
   try:
      headers={‘topicname’:topicName,
         ‘authToken’:enzoguid,
         ‘subname’:subName,
         ‘count’:1,
         ‘timeoutSec’:1
      }
      response=requests.get(enzourl_receiveMsg,headers=headers)
      resp=response.json()
      if (len(resp[‘data’][‘Table1’]) > 0
         #extract response here…

 

Conclusion

This prototype demonstrated that while there were a few technical challenges along the way, it was relatively simple to build a speech recognition engine that can understand commands using Windows 10 IoT Core, .NET, and the Microsoft Speech Recognition SDK. 

Further more, the intent of this project was also to demonstrate that Enzo Unified made it possible to code against multiple services without the need for an SDK on the client side regardless of the platform and the development language.  Abstracting SDKs through simple HTTP calls makes it possible to access Twilio, SharePoint Online, Azure services and much more without any additional libraries on the client system.

          Integrating ASP.NET Core With Webforms Using IIS URL Rewrite   

Originally posted on: http://geekswithblogs.net/mrsteve/archive/2017/03/25/run-asp-net-core-mvc-alongside-webforms-iis-url-rewrite.aspx

I'm currently updating a legacy ASP.NET WebForms application to ASP.NET Core. Because big rewrites (almost) never work, it's a case of migrating sections of the site one at a time, having WebForms pass specific requests to ASP.NET Core, with no change to the end user's experience. How, you ask? With a couple of IIS tools and a sprinkle of web.config entries.

ASP.NET Core can be served via IIS, with IIS acting as a reverse proxy. Requests come into IIS, the ASPNetCoreModule routes them to Kestrel, and returns the results. In my scenario, the ASP.NET Core application is only ever accessible via WebForms, so it takes a little bit of setting up. Here's how.

Setting up IIS

AspNetCoreModule

Firstly, you need the AspNetCoreModule. Luckily, you probably already have it - Visual Studio installs it into IIS for you. To check, open IIS Manager, and at the server level open Modules in the IIS section - you should see it listed there. If not, you can install it via the ASP.NET Core Server Hosting Bundle - here's a direct link to download the installer: download!

Application Request Routing

Next, you need the Application Request Routing module to route requests rewritten by the URL Rewrite module (try saying that ten times fast). You can install this via IIS Manager - click Get New Web Platform Components in the right-hand column to open the Web Platform Installer, then search for ARR, and look for version 3.0:

ARR

Once that's installed, open Application Request Routing in the server-level IIS section (you may need to close and re-open IIS to see the icon), click Server Proxy Settings, check Enable proxy, and click Apply:

ARR

URL Rewrite

Finally, you need the URL Rewrite module. This you can also install via the Web Platform Installer - just search for rewrite, and look for version 2.0:

UrlRewrite

Setting up ASP.NET Core

Firstly, you need IIS integration in your application. This is super easy, and you probably already have it - it's simply a call to UseIISIntegration() on the WebHostBuilder in your Program.cs. If you're missing it, UseIISIntegration is an extension method from the Microsoft.AspNetCore.Server.IISIntegration NuGet package.

That one line is all you need in your ASP.NET Core application - now you just publish the project. You can use a File System publish, go via WebDeploy, or whatever you prefer.

Finally, set up an IIS website pointing to your ASP.NET Core publish directory. Because this website will be accessed via WebForms only, bind it to a non-public port number - I'll use 1234 for our example:

CoreBindings

Setting up WebForms

Finally, you need to tell WebForms to send the appropriate requests to ASP.NET Core.

You can do this with rules in your web.config which configure the URL Rewrite module. For example, say you've migrated your news pages to an ASP.NET Core NewsController, the following rules tell IIS what to do with requests for the ASP.NET Core 'news' section:

<system.webServer>
 <rewrite>
  <rules>
   <rule name="AspNetCoreContent" stopProcessing="true">
    <match url="^content/(.+)$" ignoreCase="true" />
    <action type="Rewrite" url="http://localhost:1234/content/{R:1}" />
   </rule>
   <rule name="AspNetCoreNews" stopProcessing="true">
    <match url="^news(.*)$" ignoreCase="true" />
    <action type="Rewrite" url="http://localhost:1234/News{R:1}" />
   </rule>
  </rules>
 </rewrite>
</system.webServer>

Both rules have the same pattern: they both capture requests with URLs beginning with particular strings (content/ and news, respectively), and rewrite them to requests on port 1234 on the local machine. The {R:1} reference in the rewritten URLs is replaced with the captured group from the regular expression which matched the request URL. The content/ rule allows the ASP.NET Core application to reference static files in a content directory in its wwwroot, and have IIS route those requests back to the appropriate place.

And that's it! A page-by-page migration is underway with a few simple steps.

           PCLinuxOS 2017.03   

It has been about a year since I last explored the PCLinuxOS distribution. At that time I was experimenting with the project's MATE edition. Since I have not taken the chance to try PCLinuxOS since the distribution launched an edition with the KDE Plasma 5 desktop environment, I thought it would be fun to revisit this project. PCLinuxOS currently ships with version 5.8 of the Plasma desktop which is a long term support release of Plasma. The ISO file I downloaded for PCLinuxOS was 1.3GB in size.

Booting from the distribution's live media brings up a menu asking how we would like to launch the operating system. We can choose to launch PCLinuxOS with a graphical desktop with the default settings, load the desktop with safe mode graphics settings, boot to a text console or launch the project's system installer. Taking one of the live desktop options soon brings up a window asking us to select our keyboard's layout from a list. Then the Plasma desktop loads. PCLinuxOS has a varied and colourful wallpaper. There are icons on the desktop which open the Dolphin file manager and launch the system installer. At the bottom of the screen we find a panel which houses the application menu, a few quick-launch buttons, a task switcher and the system tray.

          NCSS Leadership Conference Notes   
Accessing Funds from the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA)
Presented by Beth Ratway

The meeting began with an introduction of the attendees and discussion of how states are connecting internally.

Money is currently available through SFSF, Race to the Top, SIG, i3, ED Tech, TIF, SLDA, and TQP. All of these run through IDEA and Title I.

The types of questions social studies councils should be seeking to answer include:

  • How do standards and assessment impact your work?
  • How can you use data to improve the work of your council?

The currently education landscape focuses on ARRA, I3, NCLB, and 21st Century Skills.

ARRA: 4 Assurances expected of those seeking to procure funding

  • Support effective teachers and school leaders
  • Improve the use of data (Data systems: fully implementing a statewide longitudinal data system, accessing and using state data, and using data to improve instruction)
  • Complete the implementation of high standards and high-quality assessments
  • Turn around persistently low-performing schools, whole-school reform, and targeted approaches to reform.

In addition, states should be focused on developing and adopting common standards, developing and implementing common, high-quality assessments, supporting transition to enhanced standards and high quality assessments.

The key is to find the intersecting nodes for standards and assessments, teacher and leadership effectiveness, support for struggling schools, and _____.

Race to the Top Funds go to state educational agencies, school improvement grants, investing in innovation funds, educational technology, teacher incentive fund, and statewide data system. As social studies councils, the focus should probably be the i3 (Investing in Innovation Fund)Funds (a part of the third phase of funding. For this grant, the interest is in improving student achievement or student growth from high-need students and promoting school readiness. Only LEAs or non-profit organizations can get this in collaboration with an LEA.

Funding focuses on three levels: development of research-based theories ($5 m award), validation (up to $30 m award), and scale-up ($50 m award).

To receive the grant, there must be 20% private sector funding, conduct independent program evaluation, cooperate with technical assistants, etc.

Other interested topics include improving early learning outcomes, supporting college access and success, assisting ELL and disabled students, serve schools in rural LEAs. If applications address these issues, they will receive preference.

All proposals should include partnerships (e.g., with other LEAs, other social studies councils).

Beth recommended the following resource for assessing higher level thinking objectives: Authentic Intellectual Work by Ken Newman (a way to look at depth of knowledge and other educational outcomes)

ARRA grants should be in the million dollar range, the grants should be pretty competitive, and they will probably be due around the spring/ summer.

Presented by Della Cronin

Some of the concepts that appeal to Secretary Duncan are charter school and pay for performance. The interest on Capitol Hill, however, has been on health care, not education. Duncan has stated publicly that NCLB has its good and bad points and noted that we have had a narrowing of the curriculum as a result of the legislation.

There appears to be a focus on preparing children in early childhood as a way to support the overall goal of having all students graduate from high school and increase college enrollments.

There is a bill from Rockefeller that would provide funds to states to support 21st century learning. Senator Kennedy and Senator Alexander introduced a bill that would expand the sample size for the NAEP civics exam and place an emphasis on history assessments. Nothing is currently moving out of the re-authorization process.

There appear to be concerns about equity and access in education. The rural areas and inner-city schools appear to facing the brunt of America's contemporary financial status.

Make sure when coupling terms, we include citizenship (e.g., "College, Career, and Citizenship").


          NECC 2009: Session Notes   
A Ripple Effect: 21st Century Innovations that Matter
Cheryl Lemke

Adolescent learning: peers, school, home, distributed resources, work, networked publics (a networked space where the public meets). —B. Barron, 2006

We need to create environments where we can work and learn peer-to-peer with our students because that is where they go to learn what interests them. Students need to see the value-added that the teacher offers.

94% of adolescents are involved in online gaming. —Pew

Multi-tasking is a myth. Our brains have an executive function that allows us to only think about things serially. Students, though, are faster than adults because they are younger (our brain processing speed peaks at between 20 and 30. When you move from one task to another, there is a slight delay and loss of time. There is, however, background tasking (e.g., listening to music). When students are engaged in difficult to cognitively process content, we should decrease the need for background tasking and multi-tasking. Drill and practice builds automaticity that leads to a greater ability to do background tasking while engaged in processing new content. Our students are giving us their “continuous partial attention” (Linda Stark).

http://www.positech.co.uk/democracy2/ : This is a game that allows users to try and keep a country alive. It considers elections, economics, etc.

If you grant students choice, on average, their grades will increase by a full grade.

On average there’s less than 10 seconds of sustained discussion in the average classroom. Instead, there is teach-talk followed by student-talk, followed by teacher-talk.

http://voicethread.com: This is a nice tool for working with video, stills, audio, and text/drawings.

http://flowingdata.com/: This is a tool that assists in visualizing data (e.g., Twitter posts about Obama during the Inaugeration, growth of Wal-Mart). http://gapminder.org is a similar program that allows you to track demographic features over time.

http://scratch.mit.edu/: This tool is good for teaching students about gaming and gaming environments from a design perspective.

WebQuests 2.0: A Richer Web Improves a Good Idea
http://tommarch.com

  • http://clipmarks.com: Allows you to copy/paste from multiple webpages therefore creating a pool of resources related to a personally-selected topic.
  • http://diigo.com: Allows you to highlight, ask questions, and comment on individual websites.
  • http://pageflakes.com: This is an alternative to iGoogle. It provides you with an assigned web address instead of having it just be available after logging in. The site allows you to subscribe to multiple RSS feeds in the form of tabs at the top of the page. This would be good to allow students to take turns reviewing individual webquests.
  • http://vue.org: This is an online version of Inspiration.
  • CEQ•ALL ("Seek All")—Choice, Effort, Quality, Attitude, Labor of Love (A taxonomy for this century); Set-up educational opportunities that allow students to make choices, requires hard work/effort, the teacher makes him/herself available for ensuring quality of student work/learning, allows students to feel good about themselves by having a good attitude, and teachers and students must put a labor of love into their work.
Vendor Notes

Global Fever (a vendor that provides curriculum relating to the environment) created a collection of rich resources using ComicLife. Their sample pages all use ComicLife and can serve as excellent examples.

Kids.gov: Like Thinkfinity, this is a central location for accessing several website. Its function is to bring together government sites intended for use by children.

From Banned to Planned: Cell Phones in Schools
Hall Davidson

http://discoveryedspeakersbureau.com/node/119

Poll Everywhere
: Allows you to have students take a quick poll using their phones.

Suggestions for ways teachers are using cell phones in the classroom are avilable at http://k12cellphoneprojects.wikispaces.com another resource is http://www.cellphonesinlearning.com.

Voicethread
: A tool for creating projects like HyperStudio, but it allows you to add audio recorded directly from your cell phone.

Davidson suggests we rename "cell phones." In some countries they call it a hand phone and keitai ("a snug, intimate technosocial tethering"). Cell phones are different from other technologies because they are both input and output devices.

"Classroom management is less of an issues when engaged learning is taking place."

Qik: This site allows you to broadcast live from a cell phone. It will also allows you to embed code into blogs or Google Earth.

Shazam
: It allows you to hold-up your cell phone to a song and the phone can decode the name of the song.

Cell phones can read bar codes (bar code readers are freely available online) and they can create bar codes from text/pictures (QR code generators).

Amazon bought a company that does object recognition (e.g., you can take a picture of someone's shoes, send it to Amazon, and Amazon with offer it for purchase).

Davidson has placed Fatherlee's paperwork for using cell phones in the classroom on his website (see above). It includes a letter home to parents, instructions for designing cell-phone educational activities, and a tech-survey for parents to ensure students aren't being charged for their in-class work.

ISTE’s NETS•T Refreshed Roll-Out

We need real world, relevant assignments because we’ve already done well moving from the sage on the stage to the guide on the side. At this point we need to re-inspire teachers.

The new teacher standards include:
Facilitate and inspire student learning and creativity
Design and develop digital-age learning experiences and assessments
Model digital-age work and learning
Promote and model digital citizenship and responsibility
Engage in professional growth and leadership

There is a new tool available through ISTE’s website that will assist administrators in determining the level of technology integration occurring with their teachers.

Dan Edelson, Getting out of the Classroom with Technology

Volunteer Geography: A variant of citizen science. For example, students can make and share field observations and analyze and provide interpretations of that data. The concept is that students collect data by taking measurements, thy submit the data via a web form, they visualize it using interactive maps, they analyze patterns based on the data and visualization, and they may report back to others in their classes. One problem with this is that students will only be able to see small amounts of data if they are involved during the start if the project. An example of this was students testing soil samples following use of salt on icy roads. Students get to experience the full spectrum of the scientific process. In this case, students used probes and collected data in the classroom and submitted information via a website.

NGS FieldScope allows students to collect real world data. NGS chooses a region to study and invites teachers and students to participate. The teachers must purchase the equipment which costs about $1,000.

Chris Dede, Ubiquitous Computing

Goal: Repurpose common items for educational purposes (e.g., using cell phones for augmented learning).

Cheryl Lemke

We need to recognize that adolescent learning includes the home, school, peers, work, distributed resources, and communities – not just school. Our goal at this point is scalability of using technology tools for 21st century teaching, not just focusing on use in our own classrooms.

She suggests we use research-based methods to develop lessons and units that serve as “sheet music.” The teachers base their instruction on the sheet music, but also improvise.

A good teacher blog including student podcasts is “Learning on the Go.” The teacher sets up her class as a fictional consulting agency and the students solve real world algebra problems. Another teacher uses authentic travel agent activities to teach about Greek history.

SimCalc: http://www.simcalc.umassd.edu/software (teaches about perspective)

Media multi-tasking: We can only do one thing at a time, but we can quickly move from one thing to another. Kids are better at multi-tasking than adults. When learning, students are distracted when multi-tasking (except for things like music without lyrics in the background).

Universe: http://universe.daylife.com (identifies what is going on online in real time using a visual perspective)

Venezuela started teaching critical thinking to their elementary and middle school students 10 years ago. Now, they are finding increased average adult IQs across the country.

See http://www.flatworld.com

Alan November, “Designing Rigorous and Globally Connected Assignments”

This presentation is available from the “Archive of Articles” on NovemberLearning.com. This presentation is available at Digital Farm.

Students are connected to everyone in their lives – except their teachers because schools block everything. “Schools are the learning police.” There is more freedom in Chinese schools in terms of the Internet than here. We are so worried about their safety that we block their learning.

Vocabulary of the Web: Students need to learn information resources. This type of information is available on http://novemberlearning.com/blc

By adding site:en to Google searches, you will only get sites with an English country code. To get Turkey-based sites, type site:tr.

Adding view:timeline to a search, you can access the most recent information about a given search term.

Type link:http://Wikipedia.com to find out how many links exist to that particular site.

Hall Davidson, “It’s in Your Pocket: Teaching Spectacularly with Cell Phones”

http://www.myspace.com/sidekicknation (How kids use video on a daily basis)


Every classroom should have a student-designated web researcher. The teacher should never have to answer a factual question, they should only have to respond to higher-order thinking questions.

There is a Google feature that allows you to create your own search engine. November believes teachers and students should jointly build search engines. This will give students less stimuli when they do searches.

It would be nice if students could develop resources that teach content and then future students review these tutorials before class. Students, then, are responsible for learning their own content and class time is replaced with problem solving. When there’s not a lot of Internet access, students could have a DVD with all the information at home (because DVDs are more common in the home than Internet connections).

The http://jingproject.com is a downloadable application that allows you to create screencasts.

Instead of teaching teachers to use technology, November jokes that we should send two of our students to the training and one of the students should be the biggest trouble-maker in the class.

Wikipedia isn’t an encyclopedia, it’s a publishing house. Third grade students were told they would visit the Pitot House and write an article they would submit to the largest encyclopedia in the class. The students wrote and published their Wikipedia article and now they follow the RSS feed for the article and critique what other people write.

http://kiva.com: Organizes donations to small business entrepreneurs. The donors get their money back and they get reports on their projects. You can also talk to the other people who have invested in the same entrepreneurial project.


http://jott.com alters voice to text. You can call this service from your cell phone. Another option is fozme.com

http://polleverywhere.com
: Allows you to do automatic polls from cell phones (like the classroom response systems)

Terry Cavanaugh, GIS, Google Maps, and More for Literacy Projects

http://books.google.com

There are interactive maps that show all he locations mentioned in a book (e.g., The Travels of Marco Polo). [Note to self – check out the Bible.]

Gutenkarte (http://gutenkarte.org) also makes a map of a text, showing what places are most frequently mentioned. Amazon’s Concordance also does this by telling the 100 most used words in a given text.

http://editgrid.com allows you to map a story using latitude and longitude in a spreadsheet.

http://www.goglelittrips.com has 23 stories you can follow on Google Earth. You download the .kmz file and use it with Google Earth. An example is with Make Way for Ducklings. The entire story is mapped as sections are mentioned. Also, people have added pictures of items and informational text from specific locations in the book. Anyone can make a Google Lit Trip.

http://wetellstories.co.uk/stories/week1/: Tells a story using a map – the text is embedded in the map.

Teachers can get the Pro Version of Google Earth by writing to Google and requesting it. It is possible to make a map for each student so they can each map out a story.

A dimensional mouse allows you to move in three dimensions. They are available through Amazon.

Using virtual map pins, students can add quotes from book, write facts about the locations mentioned, and adding multimedia books. This is a means of having students have greater interactivity with books.

In September, cameras will have cameras with embedded geo-tags. Some buildings are going to start putting in geo-tagging points in the buildings.

          Apple's iPhone turns 10, bumpy start forgotten   

Apple's iPhone turns 10 this week, evoking memories of a rocky start for the device that ended up doing most to start the smartphone revolution and stirring interest in where it will go from here.

Apple has sold more than 1 billion iPhones since June 29, 2007, but the first iPhone, which launched without an App Store and was restricted to the AT&T network, was limited compared to today's version.

After sluggish initial sales, Apple slashed the price to spur holiday sales that year.

"The business model for year one of the iPhone was a disaster," Tony Fadell, one of the Apple developers of the device, told Reuters in an interview on Wednesday. "We pivoted and figured it out in year two."

The very concept of the iPhone came as a surprise to some of Apple's suppliers a decade ago, even though Apple, led by CEO Steve Jobs, had already expanded beyond computers with the iPod.

"We still have the voicemail from Steve Jobs when he called the CEO and founder here," said David Bairstow at Skyhook, the company that supplied location technology to early iPhones.

"He thought he was being pranked by someone in the office and it took him two days to call Steve Jobs back."

The iPhone hit its stride in 2008 when Apple introduced the App Store, which allowed developers to make and distribute their mobile applications with Apple taking a cut of any revenue.

Ten years later, services revenue is a crucial area of growth for Apple, bringing in $24.3 billion (S$33.5 billion) in revenue last year.

New model

Fans and investors are now looking forward to the 10th anniversary iPhone 8, expected this fall, asking whether it will deliver enough new features to spark a new generation to turn to Apple.

That new phone may have 3-D mapping sensors, support for "augmented reality" apps that would merge virtual and real worlds, and a new display with organic LEDs, which are light and flexible, according to analysts at Bernstein Research.

A decade after launching into a market largely occupied by BlackBerry and Microsoft devices, the iPhone now competes chiefly with phones running Google's Android software, which is distributed to Samsung Electronics and other manufacturers around the world.

Even though most of the world's smartphones now run on Android, Apple still garners most of the profit in the industry with its generally higher-priced devices.

More than 2 billion people now have smartphones, according to data from eMarketer, and Fadell, who has worked for both Apple and Alphabet, sees that as the hallmark of success.

"Being able to democratize computing and communication across the entire world is absolutely astounding to me," Fadell said.

"It warms my heart because that's something Steve tried to do with the Apple II and the Mac, which was the computer for the rest of us. It's finally here, 30 years later."

          AEE 230: Going to San Francisco? Learn How to "Get Local" with italki Teacher Sarah Honour   

Do you want some help with the local English in San Francisco?

San Francisco is one of the most unique and amazing cities in the United States.  It’s residents are technology-centric due to their proximity to Silicon Valley, as well as health-centric and nature-centric due to the progressive philosophy that has long been part of the spirit of the city.

Sarah believes that these traits are found in some of the language that San Franciscans use, and that knowing this terminology can help you fit in just a little better.

Here are Sarah’s three top terms for your visit to San Francisco:

  • “Is there an app for that?”:  App is short for application, as in for your phone.  Because the Bay Area is near the center of a major technological development region, there are apps for almost everything in the city — from calling a taxi to getting your groceries delivered.
  • Organic, Local, Sustainable and Seasonal: Food quality is really important to San Franciscans.  Organic means that no pesticides have been used, local means the food was grown nearby, and sustainable means the environment was not harmed to produce it.  Seasonal simply means that it is the natural time of year for the food to grow.
  • “Where’s the wiggle?”: San Francisco is a great city for biking, but it is also a city with lots of hills.  The ‘wiggle’ is the route for biking with the least amount of hills to go up.

 

Have you ever been to San Francisco?

Would you like to go?

Tell us why in the comments section below!

 

Sarah is a 31 year old American who was born and raised in Denver, Colorado, studied Communications in Seattle, Washington, and worked for almost 10 years as a nanny (or babysitter) in San Francisco, California.  She now splits her time between San Francisco and Sardinia, Italy where her boyfriend lives. She is an English teacher on italki, and is learning Italian and sampling as much of the amazing food and wine from Italy as she can.

Sono cosi' indietro che manco mi ricordo piu' cosa ho visto e quando, meno male che sono anal retentive e scrivo tutto..

Comunque poco e niente da ricordare, i mesi estivi sono una barba totale e, stranamente, st'anno sono riuscita anche ad andare in vacanza, quindi ho avuto ancora meno tempo/voglia di precipitarmi in teatri afosi.

Afosi pe' modo de di', chiaramente, qui ad Agosto faceva gia' 10 gradi, ditemi voi che cazzo di estate e' questa..Stupid, stupid England *stabs England*

AS YOU LIKE IT (14/07/10)
THE TEMPEST(19/07/10)
Doppietta del Bridge Project all'Old Vic, stesso cast, due differenti opere Shakespeariane. Set minimalista e abiti moderni. Attori un tantinello seganervi.
Diciamo solo che all'intervallo di As You Like It me la sono proprio data a gambe. Il tizio che sostitui' Tennant in Hamlet l'anno scorso era il cattivone e non era abbastanza on stage.
The Tempest invece me lo sono proprio goduto, belli e semplici gli effettoni speciali, come il ring di sabbia in mezzo al palco d cui sbuca il terribile figlio di Sycorax..
Not!Tennant stavolta piu' prominente (fa il principe nemico che si innamora di Miranda) e Prospero fa-vo-lo-so.
Lovvo.

SMOKEY JOE'S CAFE (23/07/10)
Revue di canzoni famose di Leiber and Stoller ('95 Tony per Best Musical. AHAHAHA..no.) al piccolo Landor piccino piccio'.
A parte due o tre sorprese musicali (Neighborhood era nella colonna sonora di Ally McBeal che, dio benedica Vonda Shepard, so a memoria; I'm a Woman, che Hannah fa spesso; la sempre lovvosa Stand By Me) le vere sorprese sono state nel cast.
Baruwa e' sempre un figo della madonna con una voce della madonna (io e la moglie would go straight per Baruwa, e ho detto tutto).
Lo scarto delle Dorothy Steph ha l'eta' apparente, e' alta, ed e' vestita piu' o meno come la sorellina di Seaweed in Hairspray, risultando in alcuni a dir poco imbrazzanti duetti amorosi con Baruwa. Disturbing.
Pippa Stefani sara' sempre una cafona, ma e' una gnocca disumana. No really, esuda sex appeal ad ogni passo, e' un fascio di muscoli e ha un rack di tutto rispetto. , Mi costa ammetterlo ma e' davvero brava, sia nel recitato che nel cantato.
Avevamo seduta vicino Melanie LaBarrie che, squartandosi dalle risate, prendeva appunti in quanto prossima aggiunta al cast.

FEMME FATALE (10/08/10)
Monica e' in un piccolo show al Gatehouse, quindi la si va a vedere.
Autore israeliano seziona grandi donne del passato, sciagurate e complesse, con una score micidiale e divertente e un cast di giovani talenti. Brave tutte, e c'era anche la Signora Rappresentativa della Lauderdale House, che mi ha fatto fare un doppio carpiato all'indietro dal ridere (incolpo Marky, I can't unsee now XD).
Autore israeliano ma lyrics in inglese, sorprendentemente interessanti. Ogni tanto ancora ne canticchio un paio. Bravi bravi bravi.

Poi piccola parentesi Svedese, dove io e la Valex e Nighty ce ne siamo andati in quel di Goteborg a vedere Jenny Berggren(di Ace of Base-iana memoria) live in concert in una chiesetta su un'isoletta sperduta chiamata Marstrand.
L'unica parola che mi viene per descrivere il tutto e' AWESOME.
Awesome la compagnia, la lingua, il posto, Jenny, suo marito, gli svedesi (e le svedesi XD).
A 13 anni sognavo di incontrare Jenny e cercavo di immaginare quanto awesome potesse essere (la adoravo, idolatra adolescente che non ero altro..).
Ora a 30 anni l'ho incontrata, da pari a pari, e ancora non trovo le parole. E' una bellissima persona, dentro e fuori, e quello che le stanno facendo Jonas e Ulf e' vergognoso. Gli Ace of Base sono morti, e' tempo di andare avanti.
We got her back, e adesso lo sa. And that's enough.



LEGALLY BLONDE (23/08/10)
Appena torno e' tempo di andare a salutare Sheridan. Il mio 23esimo Blonde, yay!
Fa sempre piacere vederla arrivare e le prime parole che ti dice, dopo OMG e' una vita che non vi vedo mi siete mancate e blablabla, e': I've still got your penis pasta. Che io a 'penis' ero gia' WTF?!?, e siamo rimaste un attimo basite. LOL.
Tra l'altro, a causa delle extra matinee per le vacanze scolastiche, il cast era al nono show consecutivo. Se non me l'avessero detto non me ne sarei accorta, erano tutti in formissima e abbiamo visto sia Suzie!Vivianne (finalmente. Vocalmente sbalorditiva, ma c'ha la faccia da chipmunk, non e' credibile come evil preppy), Lucy!Serena (LOVVO) e Jane!Enid (FINALMENTE! Che ogni volta che ci vede ci fa l'interrogazione se abbiamo visto quanti e quali dei suoi duemila ruoli nello show, lol. Also, non e' particolarmente una figa to be honest, ma ogni volta che apre bocca e attacca a parlare con la sua calata scozzese rischio di saltarle addosso. Yummy.)
Shezza ci rivela che pensa di estendere (e il giorno dopo hanno confermato) fino a Gennaio, il che manda a puttane il nostro piano di vedere la sua ultima a Ottobre con gli Scoobies, ma anche YAY perche' there's no such thing as too much Shezza.
Quindi ad Ottobre un sacco di persone rimarranno, tranne la Pandolfi Halfpenny che viene sostituita dalla Van Outen (ZOMG).
Ah, e Sheridan fara' solo 6 show a settimana perche' deve filmare altra roba, quindi due show a settimana li fara' *rullo di tamburi* SUSAN MCFADDEN!
Mini ola celebrativa!

INTO THE WOODS (28/08/10)
Tentiamo di andare all'Open Air il 25, ma piove a dirotto e ci mandano a casa senza nemmeno cominciare, slittandoci a sabato. Alla faccia dell'ondata di caldo e 'Agosto secco' che ci avevano promesso.
Seconda fila e andiamo con i Bad Idea Bears, mica male.
Tutti bravi tutti belli..TRANNE:
-Il Baker. Ottimo piangitore, ma pessimo cantore.
-La Dalli!Cinderella. Mado' che nervi che mi fa venire. Legnosa e unfunny e la voce mi grattugia il sistema nervoso. Bleah.
Il resto tutti schifosamente bravi. Alice!Rapunzel, i due Principi, soprattutto quello che fa il Lupo, la abbondante e ninfomane Little Red, Jack e la sua mucca, JENNA FUCKING RUSSELL immensa as the Baker's Wife, e tutto il cast di contorno, la Matrigna, le Sorellastre, la Mamma di Jack, la voce di Dame Judi!Gigantessa.
E la Wad.
Hannah sceglie di overactare di brutto creando la piu' flaily e snarky Witch EVER, col suo caschetto nero anni 30 e il vestito shmexy di velluto verde. Nice. (anche se da Witch fa paurissima, con ste liane che le escono dappertutto e la maschera deforme..ew..)
Non riusciamo a vederla dopo, e ce ne andiamo a casa con una bella broncopolmonite (un'umidita' del 90000% tende a farti sti scherzetti..)

Dopodiche' me ne sono andata in vacanza alle Canarie, dove ho proceduto a non fare un beneamato cazzo per una settimana. Ole'.

Torna il genio comico dal sopracciglio indipendente!

MIRANDA SINGS & FRIENDS (27.05.10)
Julie, Daniel Boys, gli scimuniti (ora disoccupati) di Hairspray, Nikki s/b Elphaba etc, nulla possono contro la sciagurata Miranda.
In bocca ha il vetriolo e sulle labbra venti kg di rossetto, vanta numerosi tentativi di imitazione ma ci vogliono due palle quadre fumanti grosse cosi' per essere Miranda Sings.
Ad un certo punto ha fatto cantare Fine Fine Line a Julie usando uno dei suoi calzini come puppet e me la stavo quasi a fa' sotto dalle risate.
Alla fine, uscendo passo a salutare Paoletto lo Speziale (LOL) che mi bacia contento e sorridente.
La sera stessa ci manda un TWEET dicendo che ci vuole bene e ci chiama "my M & C".
Aww, era 'mbriaco de sicuro..

RICHARD BEADLE: TODAY IS MY DAY. (29.05.10)
Ennesimo late night gig di Hannah.
Mi sta uccidendo.
Beadle, per chi non lo sapesse, e' il direttore d'orchestra di Hair. Esso ha scritto varie canzoni e un par de musical.
La famiglia di Beadle ci era seduta davanti, erano 'mbriachi e esaltati e ci hanno interrotto mentre ci facevamo le foto perche' ce le volevano fare a tutti i costi loro. Vabbe'.
Nella seconda ora ci propina una 10ina di sue creazioni, cantate da amici vari ed ex compagni di sventure lavorative westendesche, tra cui Ashleigh Grey (ergo: mandria di Wicked fangirls under-18 al bar).
Ma noi siamo andate per la prima ora: Hannah e Woodsie in un reading del musical di Beadle. Manco mi ricordo come se chiama, ma non e' importante.
HANNAH. OMG.
Perche' si supera sempre, perche' l'attimo che la inquadri e sai che aspettarti lei arriva e ti sventra l'anima cosi'?? PERCHE'???
Praticamente: Woodsie si deve sposare uno (un deficente, mai visto ma una bella voce, non particolarmente brillante come attore..), e questo 'uno' odia la propria mamma, perche' beve, perche non gli ha mai detto chi e' suo padre e perche' e' una scassa cazzi che ha fatto scappare a gambe levate ben due fiancee del figlio (ma in realta' e' stato lui ad abbandonarle all'altare).
Woodsie, nella frenesia prematrimonio, sconsideratamente invita la suddetta mamma alle nozze, scatenando la tragedia.
Lo sposo spala merda a palate sulla genitrice, che a dirla tutta e' un pelino scassamaroni, ma e' HANNAH SANTO CIELO. E' awesome. La vorrei io, una madre cosi'.
Prima ha una song della madonna (in cui eravamo praticamente piegati in due sul pavimento con la milza esplosa) dove spiega tutte le cose che non sopporta (ovvero tutto), e dopo ti sgancia un destro dritto alla bocca dello stomaco quando scopri che non ha mai detto al figlio chi e' suo padre perche' non lo sa, e' stata violentata da ragazza e non ne ha mai piu' parlato.
Siamo rimasti tutti pietrificati per un lunghissimo istante.
Anche se vocalmente non era al suo meglio, ha ammazzato tutti con la mera forza del suo talento.
Ha rubato lo show, e non sono mai stata piu' orgogliosa di lei.
Alla fine 'la madre' muore in un incidente stradale, il figlio rimpiange tutto quello che ha fatto/detto, Woodsie lo consola e se lo sposa lo stesso, il matrimonio s'ha da fare e si fa con lo spettro di mamma' dietro che ruba la scena anche da morta.
Non ho ancora capito se lo show mi e' piaciuto o se Hannah e le sue incredibili capacita' vocali/recitative mi farebbero piacere qualunque cosa.



Chiacchieriamo un po' all'intervallo, dove ci presenta la sua amica Lindsey (origine della tipa non specificata) e alla fine dello show, dove finiamo nel solito delirio mezzo in italiano mezzo in inglese che vi giuro, non ci ho capito un cazzo.
Innanzi tutto i complimenti per come eravamo acchittate, che non sono usuali. Meritano una menzione *gongola*
Al solito volevamo salutarla per un attimo prima di andare via e si e' trasformato in una conversazione surreale da 10 minuti.
Siamo finite a parlare di me e la Moglie, da quanto ci conosciamo, da quanto stiamo insieme, da quanto siamo sposate, e l'Open Air e quanto si sta gia' stressando che se piove col cazzo che va in scena (LOL) e Jamie, i cabarets e le prove per i cabarets, e twitter e la sua avversione per i pc (SEMPRE GLI STESSI DISCORSI TECHNOFOBICI CRISTO) e OMG un altro po' e ci prendevamo a male parole perche' Manu ha osato dire che non possiamo andarla a vedere presentare i Sondheim Awards perche' abbiamo il cabaret di Julie quella sera ('Come osate! Come si dice evil eye in italiano?? Malocchio? Vi faccio il malocchioooo!!' XDDD).
E la tipa di origine non specificata che si preoccupa 'ma non le trattare cosi', povere..' e Hannah fa spallucce ed esclama: 'ma non devo essere nice con loro, posso essere come sono..'. LOL.
Era decisamente allegrotta. Ma in una nice way. Alla fine mi ha inghiottita in un abbraccio a orso (e' talmente alta che quando ti stringe le braccia al collo le sparisci nelle tette e ne esci che sai di Eau de Wad per due giorni) e siamo riuscite ad andare a dormire alle 2:30 AM, che e' una specie di record.

Poi c'e' stata GaGa.
Due volte, domenica e lunedi'.
E' inutile tentare di convincere gli scettici, giustificare la marea di soldi spesi per vederla o predicare ai convertiti.
GaGa o la capisci o via dalle balle.
O sei un Little Monster, o non lo sei.

Fatto sta che la mia vita adesso verra' ricordata PdG e DdG, Prima di GaGa e Dopo di GaGa.

Non sono nemmeno una grandissima fan della sua musica, ma nulla e' paragonabile al talento nudo e crudo di questa ragazzina, qualunque cosa canti. La possono associare a Madonna, a Bowie, a Bjork, a gesuccristo o chi vi pare a voi.

Ma niente e' quite come lei.

Se vi capita, fateci un salto, al suo Monster Ball. Per due ore sarete completamente liberi, e non saprete piu' tornare alla vostra vita normale.


(il video e' il mio, fin tanto che il Tubo non me lo tira giu' io continuo a spacciarlo in giro. Fa bene all'anima.)


THE FANTASTICKS (01.06.10)
Storiella scema di due padri vicini di casa che decidono di far sposare i propri figli adolescenti con un bel trucco di reverse psychology: li separano con un muro e gli fanno credere che le due famiglie sono in lotta. I due cretini ci cascano e si innamorano perche' e' proibito. I padri (uno dei due era Fenner in Bad Girls..lol) dei due cretini (lui era l'u/s, il nostro Muto in Betwixt che ci piaceva tanto, lei sembra Gabrielle di Xena) chiedono aiuto ad un mago/cialtrone per far risolvere il tutto e farli sposare senza rivelare l'inganno, e il cialtrone prima lo fa, ma siccome si sente che e' tutto finto li vuole testare sadicamente fino al limite della tortura: manda lui in viaggio a vedere il mondo e invece lo fa derubare, picchiare e quasi affogare, mentre a lei la seduce e la abbandona. Quando i due imbecilli si ritrovano alla fine sono sicuri di amarsi davvero e finisce tutto a tarallucci e vino.
Una manica di cretini.
Il tutto condito da un mimo che getta incessantementi coriandoli a destra e a manca e due attori sfigati che aiutano il cialtrone nel suo imbroglio, e che sono la cosa piu' figa dello show.
Per uno show che e' stato 50 anni di seguito off-Broadway mi aspettavo un tantinello di piu', ma c'e' un tot di charm e qualche canzoncina orecchiabile, e un cast non da buttare al cesso. Immagino che vada visto con occhi puri e non da cinica theatregoer come me..
Da vedere una volta, ma niente da strapparsi i capelli. Inutile anche aggiungere che ha gia' postato la closing notice..

E adesso abbiamo Julie domenica, speriamo bene..magari viene Boo, che ne sai..

          E' arrivata l'estate! Ma anche no.. (parte seconda)   
Lo so che non c'e' stata ancora una 'parte prima' di questo post, ma arrivera'.
Se e quando mi va di scriverla, ma arrivera'.
Non pretenderete mica che vada in ordine.
Troppo convenzionale.
Come direbbe il Dottor Sheldon Cooper, "What's life without whimsy?".

Nel frattempo, ecco la 'parte seconda':

La cara Sally, dall'Australia con furore ma ora vive in Galles, ci viene a tenere il cane affinche' le vostre eroine (sarebbimo io e la Moglie) possano andare in meritata vacanza.
Mi pare giusto ricambiare il favorone con uno show aggratis, oh yeah.

HAIR (20.05.10, matinee)
Felix, il mio cinesino preferito, ci fa beccare dei biglietti gratis per Hair, e noi ci fiondiamo.
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHQQQQQUUuuuaaaanto me piace sto show. Si Si. Me lo rivedrebbi a iosa. Tra l'altro ci sono quattro o cinque canzoni di una bellezza disumana, anche semplicemente fuori contesto dal musical.
E mi scende sempre una lacrimuccia alla fine, devo ammettere...
Ci siamo fatte la solita ballata finale tutti sul palco, foto con Allison (mi sono ricordata la macchinetta, stavolta..) e Sally ha apprezzato. Yay.


(LOL, che manica de scalmanati..leeeeeeet the sun shine iiiiiiin..)



<3

Cena da Viet, gelato da Amorino, passeggiata al sole (VENTISETTE GRADI OMG) e ci viene una voglia improvvisa di morti alle barricate e prostitute tisiche.

LES MISERABLES (20.05.10)
Sally non l'ha mai visto, e' ora che perda la sua Les Miz virginity. Mannaggia che Thaxton non c'era, al suo posto tale Mark Dugdale, che non faceva schifo ma cosi' pischello e sbarazzino, non ci credi nemmeno da lontano che qualcuno lo possa seguire fino alla morte tentando una rivoluzione sociale..
Sally e' rimasta di sasso, e tanto basta.
Zio Martin quasi zompettava quando e' uscito, e' sempre tanto caruccio, dio lo benedica..Sfigato da morire, pero' eh? Si e' lasciato anche con la tipa che lavorava a Wicked..maccheddiamine..Adesso lo iscrivo a sua insaputa su Match.com.
Poi e' corso via perche' avevano West End Eurovision, a cui noi, di nuovo, non siamo andate. Si lo so, non e' da perdere e tutto quello che volete, ma lo show comincia alle 23 e finisce alle 2, a torna' alle 4 del mattino a casa, con le scarpe in mano come una ragazza dell'Essex qualunque, dai..
Non c'ho piu' il fisico.

Quindi per il mio compleanno ce ne partiamo per Bournemouth, dove procediamo a rosolare al sole e ad abboffarci di fish & chips per 3 giorni. Alloggiando in un albergo a tema cioccolato, dove tra una tavoletta intera sul comodino, i marshmallows al cioccolato al checkin, i panckaes al cioccolato la mattina e i Martini al cioccolato al bar, e' un miracolo che non ci sia venuta una scagazza micidiale.
Invece manco pe' gnente.

Faccio in tempo a tornare che si ricomincia:

ALL MY SONS (24.05.10)
Arthur Miller
+ David Suchet (l'ispettore Poirot!! IDOLO)
+ Zoe Wanamaker (CASSANDRA! Il WhoVerse si stringe!)
= AWESOME.
Ah, quanto me piacciono sti drammoni familiari impaccati di segreti micidiali e sorrisi fasulli. Altro che Wysteria Lane, tsk.
Ci siamo spellati le mani a forza di applaudire. Awesome, awesome, awesome.

E ora, un po' di zozzerie televisive! SIGLA! (non vi lamentate, ci voglio mettere una sigla e ce la metto, va bene? Anzi, vi diro' di piu'! LA SIGLA DI BEVERLY HILLS 90210!! TIE'! SIGLAAAAAA!!!)



Prima di tutto, finiamo sta tarantella delle Dorothy che e' diventata pesante:



Ci lasciano Steph (gia' acclamata come la prossima Elphaba..hahahahah, no.) e subito dopo Lauren (meglio cosi', ha un appuntamento col destino sta ragazza, troooooppo brava per essere sprecata in una nefandezza come il Wizard of Oz..), Sophie e Danielle al finalone.
Ora, Sophie e' tanto bellina ed e' rossa ed e' vagamente hot, ma..no. Seriously, no. Non sa recitare, vocalmente e' buona ma non consistente e all in all non e' affatto impressive.
Danielle FTW. Lo dicevo io, al solito, dalla prima puntata. Non sbaglio mai su ste cose.
Non mi aspetto di vedere Wizard prima dell'anno prossimo, anche perche' e' di una noia bestiale, a meno che non ci invitano o che la sua insegnante di recitazione Helen ci faccia avere biglietti aggratis, anche solo in memoria delle gelide mattine che abbiamo passato a giocare a Uno sui gradini dell'Apollo Vic dayqueuando per Wicked..

Poi.

Avrete notato anche voi una tizia grassa col nasone che canta in Glee.
No, non Lea Michele, piu' vecchia.
No, NON BARBRA!
Parlo di una che si spaccia per Idina Menzel.
Be', non e' lei. E' la tizia che ha INGOIATO Idina Menzel.
Non c'e' altra spiegazione.
Altrimenti devo accettare che Addominali D'Acciaio sia diventata la mamma di Dumbo, e non lo posso accettare. Nun ze po'.
Ma pensa te, non poteva adottare qualche sfortunato pargolo nel mondo, come fanno tutti? C'era bisogno di figliare? Swirl (o The Artist Formerly Known As Walker Diggs) gli ha fatto un bel regalo, c'ha a mala pena sei mesi e gia' anni di terapia assicurata..)
Dall'altra parte abbiamo invece Cheno, che non vuole incrociare Idina manco per sbaglio sul set. Ah. Che bei momenti. (also, la ragazza sta sempre male, so' piu' gli show che non fa che quelli che fa..sono seriamente preoccupata..)
E dall'altra parte ancora c'e' Neil Patrick Harris che AWESOME qualunque cosa faccia, soprattutto se canta..soprattutto se lo dirige Joss Whedon.

Insomma, va a finire che 'sto Glee lo finisco a guardare sempre. Che nervi.

Nel frattempo finali di stagione come se piovesse. Bones (meh), 30 Rock (MEGALOL), How I met your mother (eheh), The Big Bang Theory (lulz), NCIS (whut??), Modern Family (OMG I<3U ALL!!) e Legend of the Seeker (oh god, non puo' essere la fine, non puo' essere..*piange*).

Ah, e Lost.
Be', non avete amato/odiato anche voi questo show? Non avete amato/odiato per 6 anni questi personaggi insopportabili su quest'isolaccia maledetta?
Come non amarlo/odiarlo fino alla fine.
Ho soprattutto apprezzato quando la Tartaruga Magica e' uscita dall'acqua al grido di THIS IS SPARTAAAAA e ha dato fuoco a una scureggia di Hurley, radendo al suolo l'intera iso..come dite? Non e' successo questo nel finale di Lost?
No no, e' successo, fidatevi.
E' molto meglio la Tartaruga Magica che quello che e' successo veramente.
Date retta a 'na fessa.
L'unica cosa che voglio ricordare sono Daniel e Charlottina, e Juliet e il suo James. Tutto qui. E vabbe', anche un po' Jack & Kate, ma giusto perche' Evi is SO MUCH LOVE e omg. *piange sommessamente*

Vi lasciamo dunque con l'ultimo Untangled e la canzone piu' epic del mondo, eseguita dai Previously On Lost (lol)



(questa canzone e' cramazing, OMG..)


PS: Mazz ha lasciato Rock You, causa pargolo. E' la fine di un'era.
          Sunshine over morning water   
Che noia, che barba, che noia.

THE NIGHT OF 1000 VOICES (02.05.10)
Riproviamo, dopo la famosa volta di Boo nel lontano 2007 (se non contiamo Chess..).
Devo dire che dai posti in platea e' tutta un'altra cosa.
Solo che mi aspettavo una celebrazione del compleanno congiunto Andrew Lloyd Webber/Sondheim, e invece c'e' stato un gigantesco 'nelle puntate precedenti' perche', apparentemente, la scusa vera erano i 10 anni della Night of 1000 Voices.
Vabbe'.
Noi siamo andate per Kerry.
Minchia, Kerry.
Lasciamo perdere i vestiti (primo: Barbie Anita Ekberg, secondo: struzzo nero spennato raccattato probabilmente di seconda mano da Lea Michele, terzo: ragazza dell'Essex in discoteca), ma UNF. UNF UNF UNF. Minchia.
Tre apparizioni, come la Madonna di Lourdes: ci sfodera una Nobody's Side da paura (AH! Idina chi?? L'avevo detto Kerry for Florence, dannazione..), un Don't Cry for me Argentina (come parte del medley ALW) che era SLDGAJKAJASKLJDAKL e conclude con No One But You, and she sang the shit out of it (detto con la voce di Hunter Bell in [title of show]).
Katie era una delle soliste, bless her. Era li', looking pretty, con i suoi bei vestitini da sera e la frangettona e OMG ha cantato Nine. Yay. Precisamente Unusual Way. GAHHHH. A volte mi scordo quanto e' brava (te credo, se deve sempre fa' parti del cazzo con note del cazzo..ma io non lo so, glielo vogliamo dare un ruolo come si deve a sta pischella??)
Debbie Kurup un po' sottotono, una Buenos Aires mediocre e il balletto di Kiss of the Spider Woman, un po' meh. I'm over her.
C'era Tiffany, che invece di cantare ha ballato una coreografia buttata li' di The Rhythm of Life, che come promozione di Charity era un po' loffia ma lei e' una gran brava ballerina.
Adam Pascal, nonostante non sia uno per cui mi strappo i capelli, fa il suo porco effetto quando lo vedi cantare One Song Glory.
Ci ripropone anche lui Chess, sembra un po' spaesato, un po' humble. Strano, per l'arrogante Mr Lady Pants Ce L'Ho Solo Io E Anche D'Oro Massiccio..
Ricardo, che come mi fa notare giustamente la Moglie, ha tirato su una valanga di muscoli da quando ha lasciato Rock You, ci delizia con le sue note inumane da sborone qual e'.
Nel corpo di ballo c'e' anche una baby Strallen, quella col nome da cogliona. Mi pare sia Zizi, ma potrebbe essere Sequoia o Gabinetto, o qualche altra cazzata. Dentro sta famiglia so' tutti strani.
Philip Quast ha cantato Stars da Les Miserables (un'altra cosa che non capita tutti giorni, no?) commuovendosi un po', e si e fatto un bell'Anthem da Chess. Doppio YAY.
Ah, e poi Brian May, che spunta a sorpresa (not really) non dalla solita botola ma da stage left.
Ad un certo punto ci dev'essere stato un medley di roba di Sondheim ma manco mi ricordo. Kerry era pretty. Guh. Noi eravamo in decima fila. Ari guh.
Nel pubblico, noi 10-20 theatregoers hardcore (ci conosciamo tutti almeno di vista, passi il pre show e l'intervallo a salutare gente con la mano che sembri la Regina Elisabetta il giorno dell'incoronazione..), 200 Kerry fangirls infoiate e 3800 vecchiacci sull'orlo dell'attacco di cuore. C'erano certi pezzi da museo..ho temuto uno svenimento collettivo durente Time Warp. Nessun morto o ferito, pero'.
Well done.
Alla stage door non ci siamo nemmeno avvicinate. Abbiamo imparato, ormai. *pacche sulla schiena*

EDIT: mi si dice dalla regia che ho scordato Jesse Buckley. No, l'ho proprio rimossa. Jesse Buckley, per la cronaca, ha cantato la peggior You Must Love Me mai sentita, interpretandola (!!! AHAHAHHAHA!!!) come una affetta da Parkinson o da Huntington, ma aveva un vestito rosso da paura. That is all.

LIAR'S MARKET (04/05/10)
Avevamo promesso a Jamie & Hannah che saremmo andati a vederlo, e detto fatto.
Le Waddingham Girls (piu' Vicky), altre 5 persone e Maureen Lipman. Questo l'audience al completo del minuscolo Union Theatre (maro' che fastidio quando passano i treni per Waterloo sopra la tua testa..).
La play e' tutta about lies. Bugie di qui e di li', 4 vite miserabili nello Yorkshire del dopoguerra. Jamie fa il pappone. E alla fine ammazza tutti.
Allegria.
Hannah non e' potuta venire perche' era alla opening night di Sweet Charity, ma ci bacia tramite Jamie. Aw.
Quindi lui si acchiappa una birra e ce la scialiamo al bar, dove parte l'ennesima discussione tecnological-comunicativa che abbiamo sempre, di cui il succo era: Hannah deve 'mpara' a usa' er computer. Jamie, pensace te. Punto.
No veramente, sta cosa e' imperativa. Siamo nel 2010, che diamine.

POI. Non siamo riuscite ad andare a vedere Julie Andrews. Un po' perche' lavoravamo (Sheridan ci ha offerto due biglietti perche' la mamma non poteva andare, poi mi sono ricordata che lavoravo fino alle 7, dannazione..), un po' perche' OTTANTA STERLE A CRANIO + DODICI DI PROGRAMMA so' tante...
Mi ritornano i sopravvissuti con racconti dell'orrore.
Molti se ne sono andati a meta' show, tanta amarezza e tanto disappunto.
Il succo e': le hanno rovinato la voce, c'era davvero bisogno di quest'umiliazione pubblica? Si tratta cosi', una Dame? Un tesoro nazionale?
Non ce la fa', e' andata da 4 ottave a 1 scarsa, ormai parla invece di cantare, come Rex Harrison..meta' show e' lei che legge il suo libro per bambini e l'altra meta' sono clips di suoi vecchi film. Ha cantato, in totale una canzone e mezza.
Si vabbe', e' un mito e va idolatrato, ma a sto punto le si faceva una bella statua da Madame Tusseaud's e via.
Senza ironia, solo un self indulgent sguardo al passato che non c'e' piu', con tanto di sing-along di Do Re Mi.
Era davvero necessaria sta pagliacciata?

DEBBIE REYNOLDS: ALIVE AND FABULOUS (07/05/10)
C'e' qualcun altro che invece ha la verve, l'ironia, il cinismo (e vorrei anche dire le palle quadrate) per uno show divertente anche se la voce non e' piu' quella di una volta.
E risponde al nome di Mary Frances Reynolds, in arte Debbie. ('Mary era blando, Frances era il nome di un mulo, non andava bene..')
E' immensa. Tra l'atroce senso dell'umorismo (con tanto di 'ba dum bam ksh' della batteria a ogni punchline) e l'altroce fashion style, le imitazioni di Barbra Straisand e le frecciate a Liz Taylor che le ha rubato il marito, stava per esplodermi la milza.

Debbie e' una che piglia un povero sfigato dalla prima fila (tale Oliver, poraccio) e lo tartassa tutta la serata. Avrei dato un braccio per essere Oliver, quella sera. E mi sa che pure Oliver, a giudicare dal sorriso estasiato, era bello contento di essere Oliver, quella sera..
Debbie e' una che, quando scende il megaschermo e partono i clips dei suoi film piu' famosi, non sta li' a guardarli con aria commossa come fa Dame Julie, no. Ti ci fa il commentario sopra. Stavo in lacrime.(al secondo tempo hanno proprio proiettato i bloopers dei film. Vedere Ronald Reagan che si incastra la zip dei pantaloni per 20 volte fa sempre molto ridere)
Debbie e' una che comincia dicendo 'Scommetto che vi siete tutti detti "Andiamo a vedere Debbie prima che schiatta", eh?'.
Ma non bitter, MAI bitter. Sempre lieve, un po' scimunita, con la mano drammaticamente appoggiata alla fronte mentre spiega che una volta questa roba qui si chiamava 'vaudeville', e adesso si chiama 'IN CONCERT' *mano sulla fronte*.
Certo, la voce non c'e' piu'.
E si, ci vuol far credere che e' svampita e mezza matta, ma credetemi, e' tutto un personaggio, lo fa apposta. E' per quello che e' un genio.
Ogni tanto si controlla le pulsazioni per vedere se e' ancora viva, racconta aneddoti assurdi aprendo duemila parentesi, rappa come un gansta (giuro su dio).
Parte per tangenti, ma se le tangenti sono Clark Gable e i suoi baffetti, Spencer Tracy che le dice di prendere lezioni di recitazione per essere real (e lei il giorno dopo incontra Ethel Merman: 'Cosi' invece di imparare ad essere real, ho imparato ad essere loud..' *cue Gypsy cantata a squarciagola*), Gene Kelly che le insegna a ballare, Marlene e la sua camminata sguincia...be', son gran belle tangenti.
Ah, e poi la sua amica Judy. Come, 'Judy chi'?
Judy FUCKING Garland.
E racconta di Judy, e di quando Debbie andava a casa sua la sera, Liza e Carrie erano piccole, e le mettevano a letto e poi lei e Judy, riuscite ad immaginarlo, Debbie Reynolds e Judy Garland? si mettevano in salone a farsi un goccetto e ascoltare dischi ('quelli col buco in mezzo, ve li ricordate? Oliver te li ricordi? Oliver, ma che ne sai tu, sei troppo giovane, poi ti spiego..')
Canzoni lievi, un cambio di costume, un pianoforte e una batteria (entrambi i musicisti con lei da tipo 30 anni).
Ci tiene a precisare che gira in tour per 42 settimane all'anno.
E' piccola e ha un ridicolo vestito di lame' d'oro e una parrucca praticamente rosa, ma non ho mai voluto cosi' essere parente di qualcuno in vita mia.

E ora, via con la zozzeria! SIGLA!



No ma aspetta, ve la dovete davvero vedere la sigla, e' di un orrore mai visto, nemmeno su Planet Unicorn resisterebbero a una cosa tanto camp..



Anche solo per le facce del Lord, vi prego..*si sente male*

L'avete vista? Siete sopravvissuti? Bene, proseguiamo. E non dimenticate il simpatico drinking game: ogni volta che dico competition, voi bevete! Risate assicurate!

Ci sono state ben TRE eliminazioni in 2 settimane. Ebbene si. Con una botta di reni, la competition si fa truculenta e dopo Stephanie-con-la-lispa che a sorpresa ci lascia (poereta..), ecco che sta settimana ne sfanculano due, una sabato e una domenica.
Avevo sbagliato di poco, e dopo l'ennesima prova disastrosa (stavolta con il potenziale Toto, che non l'ha cagata di striscio e un altro po' la insultava anche..) Jenny-con-l'acne se la combatte con Lauren (AHAHAH, really? Not a chance.) e va a casa subito dopo Stephanie.
Mi stava troppo sul culo, a prescindere dalla voce, quindi YAY. Il panel dice qualche stronzata a caso, Partridge farnetica ed e' ormai di un colore indefinito tendente al bordeaux, Sheila da' consigli vaghi al limite dell'impossibile ('cerca di essere piu' subtle, ma cerca di proiettare'..poteva anche dire 'cerca di volare, ma senza staccare i piedi da terra', visto che c'era..) e Charlotte sembra essersi invaghita di Lauren.
Ah, e ospite a sorpresa Tamsin Outhwaite che ci delizia (ma anche no) con una If My Friends Could See Me Now da Sweet Charity.

Arriviamo a domenica stremati, e GASP! Danielle e Jessica-facce-buffe nelle Ultime Due Stronze In Fondo! OHNOES!
E invece si.
Cantano, e il Lord manda a casa la povera Jessica, che ce l'ha messa tutta, ma..no.
Lei la prende con molta classe, ma tutta la classe del mondo non ti salva quando te ne devi andare cantando in calzini su una luna di cartone argentato che vola per lo studio.

Adesso sono rimaste in 4 a fare mapi' mapo': pretty Lauren (la voce migliore della competition, forse non la Dorothy migliore, ma decisamente destinata a grandi cose), la rossa Sophie (pretty e sweet, ma credo la prossima ad andare a casa..), la nana Steph (che io continuo a rimuovere dalla mente, la scordo l'attimo dopo che smettono di inquadrarla..) e la brava Danielle (che rischia di vincere, ma ha lo sguardo un po' sconfitto/afflitto ultimamente, che stia crackando sotto il peso della competition?)

Chi vincera'? (come dite? 'Sti cazzi'? Ma no, dai..non cogliete lo spirito della zozzeria..)


Nel frattempo ci sono state le elezioni (non mi chiedete chi ha vinto, non me ne frega un cazzo. Non posso votare, ergo il risultato elettorale mi e' indifferente. Come si dice dalle mie parti, il piu' pulito c'ha la rogna, non vedo che differenza faccia se ad incularmi sono i LibDem o i Labouristi. Ecco.)

Il cast di Hair e' andato a Parigi per il week end, da bravi americani in gita-tutto-pagato.

Cassandrina PrettyPretty si e' rotta il gomito (povera cucciola) ma dovrebbe tornare a Wicked in tempo per quando andiamo noi.

Jenna e' finita a cantare nel tour di Strictly Come Dancing (I know, non me ne parlate, sono affranta..)

Jon Robyns e John Owen Jones sono andati al concerto dei Kiss a Glasgow. Si son divertiti. Bless.

Partita la stagione dei cabarets, tutti si improvvisano showmen/women e ci deliziano con inopportune scalette di canzoni semisconosciute.

A proposito di partire, io gradirei partire per Roma, ad un certo punto.
Cioe' tra due giorni.
La signora Nuvola di Cenere e' pregata di andarsene affanculo prima di subito, che non ho intenzione di rimanere bloccata li', perche' come tutti sanno e' piu' facile andare dalla Contea a Mordor e ritorno (con l'Anello di Sauron e inseguiti da Uruk Hai incazzati), che farsi Roma-Londra in Eurostar.

          Data Visualization   
There has been a shift in how data is consumed in the last 5 to 8 years. Appropriately so, I believe the consuming data in context and particularly the proper use of process based portals has changed how the typical end-user believes they should be able to find information. Over the next 5 to 8 years I believe the contextual process based mini-portals will become the norm for consumption (some call these mashups). During that time I believe another shift will occur and that is how we view the data that is now gathered in one place. Data Visualization is a term I take a little bit of leeway with. People usually stove pipe data visualization but to me it can mean any image or model that is driven or associated with data. By the way, I like to remind people that this is not a new thing either. The GIS community has been doing this for a decade. The spreadsheet folks have been doing this for longer than that with its charting and mapping capabilities. We were even doing this in Lotus Notes back in the early to mid 90s with hotspot images front-ending a database application.

The reason that I think data visualization is that next wave is for two reasons. The first reason is that for complex processes it is the simplest means for consuming mashed up data. Take a product like OpenView or Tivoli. No one really wants to wade through all of the different log files, patch information, system components, etc… they just want to look at a network topology map and see if the box/line/etc… is green or red. In these types of instances, there is data overload when simply monitoring the exception and quickly understanding what that exception means in context is the most important task. The second reason is that we are getting a huge wave into the workforce of users in the US that are gamers. Gamers are use to data visualization. Go play WoW, EQ2, Half Life, Vanguard, CoH, etc… and you soon get an idea of the vast amount of data that is contained in a world of nothing but visualization. Spend some time in Sims online or Second Life and you see the same model alive and well in a virtual but not game specific community. These users will demand data visualization because they understand the power of it. Being a gamer for so long, I might be biased on this but personally I am deeply excited.

For me I see data visualization as the end to the document/record model we are so trapped in today and instead data could take any form. Think of it like nature in that data is the DNA that makes up the final organism (visualization). The visualization layers will become just as dynamic and will be able to take form based on the smallest component’s sequencing, function and placement. If you want to see someone that gets it, go check out www.bridgeborn.com Their Bridgeworks Engine/Platform shows just a piece of what they are capable of and just a pinhole for where this area is going but man what a sight and hope through that pinhole!!
          Multi-Computer   
I watched the new iMac launch yesterday and it left me thinking, "why not". I am working with a University that has just agreed to outfit some of their labs with iMacs. The reason, because it can run Windows seemingly as well as a Dell. This has got me thinking, "Are the iMacs pointing us to the future?"

My father went to work for GE back in the late 60's/early 70's after getting out of the Air Force (I promise this is relevant). One of the perks of the job was that he always got to bring home the latest appliances because that was the section he worked in. I remember when the side-by-side refrigerators came into fashion. There were a lot of factors that pushed it. 1) More and more food had preservatives in them and didn't need to be refrigerated so there was less space needed to store cold food. 2) Families grew smaller and didn't need as much storage. 3) The average house wasn't even close to the square footage as it is today so space mattered. People saw that they could get rid of their old freezer and refrigerator and get a combination that fit in the same amount of space as just one of their old appliances.

So how the heck is this relevant? Well I think it shows a trend that people often apply to only computing technology. That is individuals want less physical things that can do more functions. Look at cell phones, Phone + PDA + Camera + GPS device. Part of the problem in my opinion though is that different OS's are better for different types of activities. I think Vista has proven that for me because I bought the Home Premium and it is still just Windows. I know there are a lot of cool things underneath Vista, but at the end of the day even with my $600 vid card for my on-line gaming fix, it still isn't better than the Wii for gaming. Some of that is hardware but a lot of that is simply OS. The new iMac though showed me that hardware is no longer the factor with a single chip set, multiple OS's can be ran on a device. Wouldn't it be cool to have a single computing device that was good for business applications and great for on-demand media and great for music composition and great for gaming. Wouldn't it be cool to have a cool new smart phone that also was a great mobile gaming device (I am talking DS or DS lite cool not Live Search club cool). Well I think the iMac is showing us that this is and should be possible.
          It is all about the data   
...but the question is where to start. I can't tell you how many times I go into an account and they have no idea of the data models that are behind their systems or if the models they have are adequate or factual. I would say it is fair to say that most IT organizations view modeling as a nice to have still. It should not then come as a surprise that most applications are still deployed as a stove pipe within the organization. See to truly integrate systems you must have a good understanding of each system. I am not talking about an arbitrary pump of data to fill out a form either when it comes to integration, but I am talking about true data reliance when we finally achieve these service oriented architectures we talk so much about. Here is the most common excuses I hear from IT about modeling when we go into do IT master planning.

1) We have too many systems and too much legacy data
2) Modeling takes more time than it is worth
3) The users won't put in all of the data required so we have bad data
4) Not all systems require it because we are not integrating all systems
5) We have some systems that we cannot customize

I understand and can empathize with individuals that if you have never done it and have a medium size IT infrastructure, the task can be daunting. However, it is not just one large task and can be split up into several bits. Here are the first two that I suggest.

1) Catalog your current models and objects

Objects in the models are things such as employees, customers, locations and orders, for example. Once there is a good grasp of these objects, the group should pick one. I usually start with employees because it is the easiest place for people to grasp what kinds of data they would want to know about an employee or to have a way to uniquely identify them as they move from system to system.

The next two steps are to then determine what will be the "main" system that houses the authoritative data set for this object (Active Directory, an ERP system, a Customer Service system, etc...) and what systems this object appears in. It is not necessarily the case all of the time that there will be a main system, but if possible it make the data integrity easier.

Once the group goes through that exercise they should be able to rinse and repeat for all objects. Once they have all objects they should be able to go back and build out the models for all of the systems. Not always that easy but it gives them a good foundation.

2) Begin to change the user input

I love the "The users won't put in all of the data required so we have bad data" excuse. I tell the groups if a customer filled out an order or a contract but didn't put their name, the company name or a signature would you except it? There is no reason to accept partial data if there is a good business reason why full data needs to be captured.

Some of this behavior is caused by the fact that not all of the information is integrated. For instance, I know as a user if I put in a unique identifier on a form (e.g. e-mail address) there should be no reason why a company shouldn't be able to pull my address from their data banks if I had put it in before. Users will get really tired of filling in long forms and view it as a work detractor instead of something that is helping them.

Take that one object that the group identified above and start to change the input of that object to match the model you want and force the data integrity. If you start off a little bit at a time the users will get use to having to put in data of a certain format without it seeming too overbearing. Gradually introduce the rest of the input for objects until eventually you have a system that logically makes sense and you are ensuring that you are capturing the data to run that system.
          If it is about the apps...where are the apps?!?   
So I have run into something very frustrating. For background, I am putting together a collaboration and document management services strategy for my new employer (a large system integrator). I am looking at all of the different platforms that are out there and the solutions that ride on top of them. Our services stretch the gambit of strategic consulting to low level development. I have a strong belief that our customer base (Construction, Public Sector, Utilities and Maqnufacturing) is going to be looking for more CotS based solutions in the future and thus I am trying to find a platform company that has either a) the drive itself or b) the real ISV community to constantly deliver quality solutions. I would like to settle on one or two platforms but from what I am finding that might not be possible.

My problem to date is that I cannot the apps. It seems like everyone is focused on making a great generic platform (i.e. SharePoint, Domino/Notes/Workplace, WebEx Workspace, Adobe Breeze, etc...) and not all of them are created equal. On the other hand there seem to be some decent vertical collaboration solutions (i.e. AutoDesk Constructware/Buzzsaw, Skire, etc...), but then they are built on yet another platform. However, I am left in the dark about whether there is, for instance, a Capital Project Management application for any of the major general collaboration vendors. I have found a couple of lists here or there of partners but then it comes to my second problem which is the companies that seem to be doing this work are 10-15 person shops with annual revenues of $1- 2M. Unfortuantely, that is not substantial enough for me to build a practice around and typically isn't large enough for our typical customer to trust for a long term investment unless we financially get involved usually by escrowing the code and saying that we will support it if Company X goes out of business. That usually leaves me then approaching the customers solution the same way...take the platform and build a custom solution on top of it which gets me further from the CotS + slight technical services + strategic services story I want to tell.

Even with that said I am willing to entertain the smaller ISVs if I can find them. So help me out...where is a good list (not just the "here's everyone that paid their $1,500 to sign up for the partner program" list) that breaks down what industry they are focused on, what their solution is and who I can call to find out more.
          This could be interesting...probably a failure...but interesting   
One of my favorite brands is at it again. Sony has just announced that they will be shipping a Sony mylo device in September.

If you remember the Sony mylo was a sevice about 5 years ago that fell on its face because of the high service fees and the fact it only worked with the Clie at launch doomed it to failure. This is different though.

This Sony mylo (which stands for My Life On-Line) is a device. You have the touch screen monitor that slides open for a keyboard. Several applications such as e-mail, IM, music player (btw with a 1 gig flash memory built in), video player, photo editor and viewer and VoIP. VoIP you ask? Yep well one of the interesting things about the device is that there is no cellular service for it. It work purely on a WiFi network. I agree with Sony WiFi is becoming prevelant in the US for their target (18-24 year olds) especially around college campuses but I wonder if they aren't 5 years too early.

Three bummers about the device for me.

1) There is no UMD support. I was hoping that they would make the device capable of playing movies to add to its appeal.
2) There is no gaming focus. Yeah I know there PSP is out there but it is overkill for most games on the market for it. The reason the PSP gets knocked (although a decent device) is its size. This could have become a "PSP lite" version to compete more head to head with the Nintendo DS.
3) Lack of partnerships. I saw somewhere that eBay's Skype was planning on being in there somehow but it would have been nice to at least see an iTunes partnership. Apple needs to start making device deals and device dealers need to start making content deals if they want to compete in the long run.
          I got a message now what?   
I got to thinking while reviewing the latest Exchange Beta, "why make it easier to keep things in the Inbox?".

The Inbox is the most unstructured quagmire of information people manage (I would even argue over the OS file system). $.07 bet anyone? The fact that information is mainly intended to come inbound to an Inobx hampers activities such as content management, compliance and a litteny of others.

So...where in the new Exchange, functions such as autoarchiving, searching, routing control, encryption and auditing are important; the most important feature would be easily moving this data from my unstructured Inbox to a more structured application to be managed. We did the genesis of this a long time ago in Notes (e.g. move a message to a calendar entry or task or another db). I also know that the extensions in Notes and Outlook make this possible to program (i.e. we did this at Groove to move messages from Outlook to a Groove space but unfortunately that was taken away with the latest release). The point though is that this needs to be made easier for businesses to implement, should have more emphasis placed on it and should be more out of the box. Give me a generic target on disk where I can register something similar to an XSLT++ that defines a path, transport and data migration to move things from the Inbox to a target. Then allow me to embed that in the message window. Then for goodness sake ship some of them out of the box. Every messaging company has plenty of targets that they could pre-program.

More emphasis should be placed on the Inbox being viewed as a temporary holding spot instead of the eternal dumping ground. When things come in, act upon what needs action and place the information in the right context and then discard or archive what is left. Maybe it is that people get too many messages that makes this behavior unrealistic or maybe it is the fact that they have no other option but to just take the message and file it away.

I remember my mom used to tell me "when you have something in your hand it takes just as much work to put in the right place as the wrong place". Now I didn't buy into that much as a teenager. I only somewhat buy into it as an adult usually because I have to pick it up later anyway and that's the point! After someone opens, reads a message and puts it in a folder do you really think they are going to go back once a week and say "hmmm....what needs to be done with this to ensure compliance?". Someone needs to figure out the Interact/Act model to capture the users attention when they first open a message to say "this needs to be placed in context".
          Fire, Ready, Aim!   
I always loved that saying. It was one that was sunk into me by a colleague Barbara Baird of Lotus Organizer fame. No idea what she is doing now but man she had her finger on the pulse of how people really were and how they really acted.

I was recently talking to a Lotus employee about a bunch of stuff and was asked "why don't customers get the power of custom applications". My answer "don't forget people Act then Think versus Think then Act". It is not that customers don't get the power of custom applications it is that they don't think about it first anymore. The more I get out there really working with customers the more I see how true this is.

Customers say, "I want to be in better touch with my customers and partners so I need a CRM package". You have to read into that statement alone. What automatically brings them to conclude the fact that they need a CRM package? Well, someone told them. Next they say well I need to look at SAP or Oracle or Siebel or Saleforce.com (sorry MS Dynamics is not on the tip of the tongue yet). Why? Again because they have been influenced to think that these COTS (consumer off the shelf) based products are the best. So then what really happens. They buy one of these and end up spending thousands of dollars customizing it to have this report or that report or capture this data or that data blah blah blah....you get the picture.

In addition, custom applications have gotten a bad stigma over the past 3 or 4 years (especially in the public sector). CIOs and IT managers are afraid to build a best of breed solution for the most part because they are afraid if it doesn't work then they will get canned. Custom applications have always had the hard issue also of "now who will support it" or "what happens when one component gens itself and breaks the solution". Very few people anymore, sit there and think, "well I need the best workflow engine, the best database and indexing capabilities, the best search performance, the best data capture capabilities...etc...".

The sad truth though is that everyone needs custom applications. Software is about business and in the true sense of form follows function, not all businesses are ran the same. Do you really think Jeff Bezos used a COTS product to manage his shipping without at least customizing it to fit a unique on-line shopping model? To compete we have to be unique. To be unique you need systems that can adapt and react at business speed now.

This war around custom vs COTS is enabled by the advancement in the openness and robustness of the engines today but as always it will be won by the applications. How good is a motor without a car or boat to power? A good friend of mine, Peter O'Kelly, use to say "it's the apps stupid" all the way back in 1993 when we first started working on Lotus Notes together. How right he was. Luckily he didn't bet me $.07 then.

You want to win the war? You have to fight the battle on multiple fronts. Your platform/engine message needs to be targeted at the ISVs not the customers. You have to get them to realize you have some very unique pieces that could allow them to build better COTS products. You then have to help them take that message to the consumer that there are COTS products available on the platform. Either that or get into the COTS business yourself (which I would recommend at least for a certain amount of applications). Then in a high touch sales model convince them that your COTS is good but it is the ease of customization that makes the Solution powerful!

          Using MongoDB With Drupal   
Using MongoDB With Drupal
mongodb
David Csonka Fri, 02/03/2017 - 04:04

Because of the database abstraction layer that was added in Drupal 7, it is fairly convenient to use a variety of database servers for the backend of your Drupal software. While the term "database abstraction layer" does sound rather sophisticated, and the code involved is certainly not insignificant, in layman's terms what this system does is provide a way for a Drupal developer and Drupal modules to work with its database without generally having to be concerned with what type of database it is.

Generally speaking though, this works very well with relational model databases, such as MySQL. These types of databases are composed of various tables which are connected by relationships of keys. The relational model of databases is a very successful one and has been studied and improved for decades now. Schemas and relational integrity are important features of this model that makes it useful for content management systems.

There are other types of database models though, most having been around just as long. NoSQL is a popular classification that is often used to refer to non-relational database types, and MongoDB is a somewhat newer database system built around document collections that fit into this category.

Not storing data in tables with rows and columns, MongoDB keeps it in documents that have a JSON-like format. As well, these documents aren't bound by a strict universal schema, so your data can easily change over time without requiring retroactive edits to older documents. Some of the key qualities that have attracted users to MongoDB are its built-in performance enhancing features, such as high availability with replica sets and load-balancing with horizontal sharding.

That is quite obviously a very cursory review of the technical aspects of MongoDB, but you can read in more detail about it on their main website.

While document-based databases are not new, the release of MongoDB several years ago created quite a stir and made developers very interested in finding uses for it in their applications, usually to take advantage of its vaunted performance qualities.

Can you use MongoDB with Drupal?

The short answer is "yes", sort of. Drupal 7 saw the release of the MongoDB module. An important thing to realize though is that this integration does not allow for completely switching to using MongoDB as the database for your Drupal installation. Despite the utility of the Drupal database API we previously mentioned, there are still aspects of how a content management system like Drupal works that don't lend themselves well to the document storage nature of MongoDB. For Drupal 7 a significant number of components of Drupal can still be stored by MongoDB, and for Drupal 8 possibly, even more, when the work on the module is completed.

See the table on the module project page to review which Drupal features can be converted to use MongoDB.

So, will you see performance boosts to your Drupal website by just integrating MongoDB to store various components, like entities or blocks? It is possible to gain a small performance increase, but this is not guaranteed, is almost assuredly dependent on the nature of your website and its content.

A document storage database like MongoDB is much better suited at server lots of "reads" very quickly and allows for scaling to multiple servers very easily. So, if you have a large website that servers an enormous amount of content to be read (and not updated) by users, it might be advantageous to use a solution like MongoDB.

However, if you have a lot of interactive content with editing and updating, so writes to the database, then MongoDB may not offer any improvements and actually may cause problems with duplication if not properly managed.

The important thing to realize here is that many popular technologies are not automatically a good solution simply because they are being talked about and used by well-known tech luminaries. Most tools have a use-case that matches their features, and MongoDB is no different. Be sure to learn more about this database system before determining if it will be a useful addition to your project.


          Can You Host a Drupal Website on an Amazon EC2 Micro Instance?   
Can You Host a Drupal Website on an Amazon EC2 Micro Instance?
amazon-aws
David Csonka Wed, 02/01/2017 - 05:15

If you are at the decision point of wondering which Amazon Web Services EC2 server type to host your Drupal website, you have hopefully already gone through a checklist to ensure that using AWS for your Drupal hosting makes sense. Starting at the lowest price point to access Amazon's EC2 web server platform, the "micro" instance is bound to be one of the most popular levels of service.

The AWS EC2 server types range from micro, to standard small, medium, large and a wide variety of other specially set up instance types for edge case needs. When selecting an EC2 micro as your Drupal web host, you'll want to take care to determine if the micro instance is suitable for your Drupal website's needs.

Burstable Instances

Micro instances are classified by AWS as "burstable", as in they provide a small amount of consistent CPU resources and will allow for an increase in CPU capacity in short bursts when additional cycles are available. They are well suited for lower throughput applications and web sites that consume significant compute cycles periodically but very little CPU at other times for background processes, daemons, etc. 

Amazon provides a series of charts highlighting CPU demand profiles which it deems are inappropriate for micro instances.

Considering Computer Cycles

Basically, if your application has consistently intensive computing needs you're going to want to use a standard class instance type, small, medium, or larger depending on your requirements. But even though at a steady state micro instances receive a fraction of the compute resources that standard small instances do, micros can intermittently and briefly burst up to 2 ECU's (EC2 Compute Unit). This is double the number of ECU's available for a standard small instance. 

Therefore, if you have a website with relatively low computing needs, like a blog, or a development site that doesn't receive much or any public traffic, a micro instance could be perfect suited for your project. A Drupal site that has the vast majority of its traffic coming from anonymous visitors (which can have completely cached pages delivered) can work quite well with a micro instance. Full caching that is augmented with APC or Varnish can help even a little micro server hundreds of requests.

However, if your Drupal site handles a lot of authenticated traffic (logged in users are considered authenticated), with users accessing dynamic content and viewing uncached pages, you're definitely going to want to consider a larger capacity standard class instance, or set up a robust auto-scaling system to roll out extra instances on demand to handle the load. Trying to do any work as an admin when your Drupal site has many modules installed, especially memory hogs like Rules or Views, can potentially bog down your micro server. You can utilize AWS Cloudwatch alarms to monitor CPU utilization of your micro instance to help determine if it is being overwhelmed.

           IT DR EXPERT IMPLEMENTER - BCM Institute , Singapore, Kuala Lumpur    
This course is intended for experienced IT disaster recovery (DR) planners. It is also designed for IT professionals who has minimal DR experience and would like to have an in-depth understanding of this subject.

The main difference is that IT professionals with does not have the required years of IT DR planning experience will need to accumulate the necessary experience before they are awarded with the “Expert” certification.

All aspects of IT DR planning will be discussed. Participants will be guided to review each stage of the DR Planning (DRP) Methodology and the process will include all aspects of creating the DR plan. The course concludes with the understanding on the need for exercising and maintaining the DR plan.

This course will provide participants with the concept and knowledge, which will enable them to:
  1. Identify the threats that affect the IT and business environment and its countermeasures.
  2. Have a thorough understanding of the DR Planning Methodology.
  3. Conduct an application impact analysis for an organization.
  4. Develop and implement business and IT recovery strategies.
  5. Conduct cost benefit analysis for strategies and alternate site selection.
  6. Consolidate and implement a comprehensive IT DR plan.
  7. Create and develop IT DR awareness and training program.
  8. Conduct exercises and tests.
  9. Integrate business continuity with the IT DR initiatives.

          3-SIMPLE Steps That Built The Greatest Fortunes In History   
Mark Joyner provides a free ebook copy of his new book - The Great Formula - on http://www.simpleology.com/courses/tgf/

In it Mark identifies a simple 3-step formula used to build some of the greatest fortunes in history.

Step 1. Create The Irrisistible Offer

Step 2. Present It To A Thirsty Crowd

Step 3. Sell Them a Second Glass

A very good, simple read with neat examples of the formula's application in many successful businesses.

What I like about the formula is that it adheres to the principle espoused in the title of this blog 'Its So Simple! ..1 ..2 ..3' and as discussed in the post - MAD 7. It Only Takes 'HALF-A-DOZEN' Things! - where I write:


'Yes, most often it takes only a few things... 1, 2, or 3 things... just a 'half-a-dozen' things to ensure success in most projects.'

Mark's formula is a creative twist on one I learnt from Jay Abraham to improve revenue in one's business back in the late '80's, which went something like this:

1. Increase the number of new customers in your business

2. Increase the price (and therfore value) of your product/s

3. Increase the frequency of sales to your existing customer base


My own twist on this theme that I use to show retailers 'How To Pull Your Target Consumer's Like BIG Fish... and have them say thank-you for doing it!' goes like this:

Step 1. Go to where the BIG Fish are

Step 2. Give 'em some tasty tidbits to create a Feeding FRENZY

Step 3. Present Your HOOK


Hmmm... am finding myself being more and more sensitive to, and driving my strategic business thinking to, thinking simply in 3's... as mentioned in this post: simplify, Simplify, SIMPLIFY ..1 ..2 ..3

          Deploying Highly Available Virtual Interfaces With Keepalived   

Linux is a powerhouse when it comes to networking, and provides a full featured and high performance network stack. When combined with web front-ends such asHAProxylighttpdNginxApache or your favorite application server, Linux is a killer platform for hosting web applications. Keeping these applications up and operational can sometimes be a challenge, especially in this age of horizontally scaled infrastructure and commodity hardware. But don't fret, since there are a number of technologies that can assist with making your applications and network infrastructure fault tolerant.

One of these technologies, keepalived, provides interface failover and the ability to perform application-layer health checks. When these capabilities are combined with the Linux Virtual Server (LVS) project, a fault in an application will be detected by keepalived, and the virtual interfaces that are accessed by clients can be migrated to another available node. This article will provide an introduction to keepalived, and will show how to configure interface failover between two or more nodes. Additionally, the article will show how to debug problems with keepalived and VRRP.

What Is Keepalived?


The keepalived project provides a keepalive facility for Linux servers. This keepalive facility consists of a VRRP implementation to manage virtual routers (aka virtual interfaces), and a health check facility to determine if a service (web server, samba server, etc.) is up and operational. If a service fails a configurable number of health checks, keepalived will fail a virtual router over to a secondary node. While useful in its own right, keepalived really shines when combined with the Linux Virtual Server project. This article will focus on keepalived, and a future article will show how to integrate the two to create a fault tolerant load-balancer.

Installing KeepAlived From Source Code


Before we dive into configuring keepalived, we need to install it. Keepalived is distributed as source code, and is available in several package repositories. To install from source code, you can execute wget or curl to retrieve the source, and then run "configure", "make" and "make install" compile and install the software:

$ wget http://www.keepalived.org/software/keepalived-1.1.17.tar.gz  $ tar xfvz keepalived-1.1.17.tar.gz   $ cd keepalived-1.1.17  $ ./configure --prefix=/usr/local  $ make && make install 

In the example above, the keepalived daemon will be compiled and installed as /usr/local/sbin/keepalived.

Configuring KeepAlived


The keepalived daemon is configured through a text configuration file, typically named keepalived.conf. This file contains one or more configuration stanzas, which control notification settings, the virtual interfaces to manage, and the health checks to use to test the services that rely on the virtual interfaces. Here is a sample annotated configuration that defines two virtual IP addresses to manage, and the individuals to contact when a state transition or fault occurs:

# Define global configuration directives global_defs {     # Send an e-mail to each of the following     # addresses when a failure occurs    notification_email {        matty@prefetch.net        operations@prefetch.net    }    # The address to use in the From: header    notification_email_from root@VRRP-director1.prefetch.net     # The SMTP server to route mail through    smtp_server mail.prefetch.net     # How long to wait for the mail server to respond    smtp_connect_timeout 30     # A descriptive name describing the router    router_id VRRP-director1 }  # Create a VRRP instance  VRRP_instance VRRP_ROUTER1 {      # The initial state to transition to. This option isn't     # really all that valuable, since an election will occur     # and the host with the highest priority will become     # the master. The priority is controlled with the priority     # configuration directive.     state MASTER      # The interface keepalived will manage     interface br0      # The virtual router id number to assign the routers to     virtual_router_id 100      # The priority to assign to this device. This controls     # who will become the MASTER and BACKUP for a given     # VRRP instance.     priority 100      # How many seconds to wait until a gratuitous arp is sent     garp_master_delay 2      # How often to send out VRRP advertisements     advert_int 1      # Execute a notification script when a host transitions to     # MASTER or BACKUP, or when a fault occurs. The arguments     # passed to the script are:     #  $1 - "GROUP"|"INSTANCE"     #  $2 = name of group or instance     #  $3 = target state of transition     # Sample: VRRP-notification.sh VRRP_ROUTER1 BACKUP 100     notify "/usr/local/bin/VRRP-notification.sh"      # Send an SMTP alert during a state transition     smtp_alert      # Authenticate the remote endpoints via a simple      # username/password combination     authentication {         auth_type PASS         auth_pass 192837465     }     # The virtual IP addresses to float between nodes. The     # label statement can be used to bring an interface      # online to represent the virtual IP.     virtual_ipaddress {         192.168.1.100 label br0:100         192.168.1.101 label br0:101     } } 

The configuration file listed above is self explanatory, so I won't go over each directive in detail. I will point out a couple of items:

  • Each host is referred to as a director in the documentation, and each director can be responsible for one or more VRRP instances
  • Each director will need its own copy of the configuration file, and the router_id, priority, etc. should be adjusted to reflect the nodes name and priority relative to other nodes
  • To force a specific node to master a virtual address, make sure the director's priority is higher than the other virtual routers
  • If you have multiple VRRP instances that need to failover together, you will need to add each instance to a VRRP_sync_group
  • The notification script can be used to generate custom syslog messages, or to invoke some custom logic (e.g., restart an app) when a state transition or fault occurs
  • The keepalived package comes with numerous configuration examples, which show how to configure numerous aspects of the server

Starting Keepalived


Keepalived can be executed from an RC script, or started from the command line. The following example will start keepalived using the configuration file /usr/local/etc/keepalived.conf:

$ keepalived -f /usr/local/etc/keepalived.conf 

If you need to debug keepalived issues, you can run the daemon with the "--dont-fork", "--log-console" and "--log-detail" options:

$ keepalived -f /usr/local/etc/keepalived.conf --dont-fork --log-console --log-detail 

These options will stop keepalived from fork'ing, and will provide additional logging data. Using these options is especially useful when you are testing out new configuration directives, or debugging an issue with an existing configuration file.

Locating The Router That is Managing A Virtual IP


To see which director is currently the master for a given virtual interface, you can check the output from the ip utility:

VRRP-director1$ ip addr list br0 5: br0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN      link/ether 00:24:8c:4e:07:f6 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff     inet 192.168.1.6/24 brd 192.168.1.255 scope global br0     inet 192.168.1.100/32 scope global br0:100     inet 192.168.1.101/32 scope global br0:101     inet6 fe80::224:8cff:fe4e:7f6/64 scope link         valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever  VRRP-director2$ ip addr list br0 5: br0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN      link/ether 00:24:8c:4e:07:f6 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff     inet 192.168.1.7/24 brd 192.168.1.255 scope global br0     inet6 fe80::224:8cff:fe4e:7f6/64 scope link         valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever 

In the output above, we can see that the virtual interfaces 192.168.1.100 and 192.168.1.101 are currently active on VRRP-director1.

Troubleshooting Keepalived And VRRP


The keepalived daemon will log to syslog by default. Log entries will range from entries that show when the keepalive daemon started, to entries that show state transitions. Here are a few sample entries that show keepalived starting up, and the node transitioning a VRRP instance to the MASTER state:

Jul  3 16:29:56 disarm Keepalived: Starting Keepalived v1.1.17 (07/03,2009) Jul  3 16:29:56 disarm Keepalived: Starting VRRP child process, pid=1889 Jul  3 16:29:56 disarm Keepalived_VRRP: Using MII-BMSR NIC polling thread... Jul  3 16:29:56 disarm Keepalived_VRRP: Registering Kernel netlink reflector Jul  3 16:29:56 disarm Keepalived_VRRP: Registering Kernel netlink command channel Jul  3 16:29:56 disarm Keepalived_VRRP: Registering gratutious ARP shared channel Jul  3 16:29:56 disarm Keepalived_VRRP: Opening file '/usr/local/etc/keepalived.conf'.

If you are unable to determine the source of a problem with the system logs, you can use tcpdump to display the VRRP advertisements that are sent on the local network. Advertisements are sent to a reserved VRRP multicast address (224.0.0.18), so the following filter can be used to display all VRRP traffic that is visible on the interface passed to the "-i" option:

$ tcpdump -vvv -n -i br0 host 224.0.0.18 tcpdump: verbose output suppressed, use -v or -vv for full protocol decode listening on br0, link-type EN10MB (Ethernet), capture size 96 bytes  10:18:23.621512 IP (tos 0x0, ttl 255, id 102, offset 0, flags [none], proto VRRP (112), length 40) \                 192.168.1.6 > 224.0.0.18: VRRPv2, Advertisement, vrid 100, prio 100, authtype simple,                  intvl 1s, length 20, addrs: 192.168.1.100 auth "19283746"  10:18:25.621977 IP (tos 0x0, ttl 255, id 103, offset 0, flags [none], proto VRRP (112), length 40) \                 192.168.1.6 > 224.0.0.18: VRRPv2, Advertisement, vrid 100, prio 100, authtype simple,                  intvl 1s, length 20, addrs: 192.168.1.100 auth "19283746"                          ......... 

The output contains several pieces of data that be useful for debugging problems:

authtype - the type of authentication in use (authentication configuration directive) vrid - the virtual router id (virtual_router_id configuration directive) prio - the priority of the device (priority configuration directive) intvl - how often to send out advertisements (advert_int configuration directive) auth - the authentication token sent (auth_pass configuration directive) 

Conclusion


In this article I described how to set up a host to use the keepalived daemon, and provided a sample configuration file that can be used to failover virtual interfaces between servers. Keepalived has a slew of options not covered here, and I will refer you to the keepalived source code and documentation for additional details

          Nowości w mojej kosmetyczce. Pielęgnacja twarzy i ciała NUXE. New In: NUXE Face and Body Care Haul.   
Dzisiaj krótki post o kilku nowych produktach do pielęgnacji twarzy i ciała firmy Nuxe, które kupiłam ostatnio. Są pośród nich zarówno sprawdzone kosmetyki, już wcześniej używane przeze mnie, jak i nowości do wypróbowania.

Olejek Huile Prodigieuse Or to kwintesencja luksusu zamknięta w eleganckiej buteleczce. Drobinki złota nadają skórze blasku i podkreślają pięknie opaleniznę, a aksamitna konsystencja sprawia, że samo nakładanie preparatu to czysta przyjemność. Olejek wchłania się szybko, nie pozostawiając tłustej warstwy, więc od razu po użyciu mogę zakładać ubranie. Dodatkową zaletą jest delikatny zapach. To już trzecia kupiona przeze mnie buteleczka i na pewno nie ostatnia.

Kolejny raz kupiłam także maseczkę oczyszczającą Masque Purifiant Doux i wodę micelarną Eau Demaquillante Micellaire. Obydwa produkty należą do serii kosmetyków z płatkami róży, mają subtelny kwiatowy zapach i skuteczne formuły. Maseczka usuwa zanieczyszczenia, sprawia, że skóra staje się świeża i rozświetlona. Naturalne składniki, biała glinka i puder ryżowy, odtykają i zwężają pory. Natomiast woda micelarna usuwa makijaż, nie podrażniając wrażliwej skóry, gdyż nie zawiera alkoholu. Pozostawia uczucie czystej, miękkiej skóry.

Pozostałe cztery produkty to dla mnie nowości: żel do mycia twarzy z płatkami róży Gel Damquillant Fondant, żel pod prysznic Gel Douche Fondant, a także serum modelujące sylwetkę i zwalczające cellulit tłuszczowy oraz całodobowo nawilżające mleczko do ciała z serii Nuxe Body. Recenzje tych kosmetyków na pewno pojawią się na moim blogu, a już teraz mogę polecić naturalne produkty Nuxe wszystkim kobietom, które lubią rozpieszczać swoje ciało :-)

***

In today's post I would like to present some new Nuxe beauty products which I picked up recently. They include both some favourites of mine that I tend to repurchase from time to time as well as some new ones I want to try out.

I would describe the Huile Prodigieuse Or oil as the essence of luxury contained in a fancy bottle. Gold particles give my skin that lovely tanned glow whereas its silky texture makes the application pure pleasure. The oil is rapidly absorped and it does not leave a sticky layer on the skin so that I can just put on my clothes right after using it. I also like the delicate scent of the product. This is the third bottle of Huile Prodigieuse Or I have purchased and definitely not the last one.

It is also not the first time that I bought Masque Purifiant Doux purifying mask and Eau Demaquillante Micellaire micellar water. Both products belong to the line of cosmetics containing rose petals. They have subtle floral scent and reliable formulas. The masque removes impurities and makes the skin fresh and radiant. Natural ingredients, white clay and rice powder, unclog the skin pores efficiently. The micellar water, on the other hand, removes make up without irritating sensitive skin and leaves a fresh and clean feeling. It does not contain alcohol.

Four remaining products are new to me: Gel Damquillant Fondant face cleansing gel and Gel Douche Fondant shower gel as well as body contouring serum for embedded cellulite and 24 hour moisturising body lotion form the Nuxe Body line. Reviews of these products will soon be up on my blog but I can already recommend Nuxe natural cosmetics to all women who love to pamper their bodies :-)

          Comment on The VIAIR 300P and 450P Portable Air Compressors – Item of the Day by Derek C   
The 400P-RV is on sale through Amazon for under $150.00. It's only a 33% duty cycle, like to 300P, but has most of features of the 450P. It's rated for 40 minutes of continuous, which is almost three times as long as the 300P, and also includes the auto-off at 150 psi like the 450P. The RV version of the kit also includes an additional length of air hose, tire inflation wand (similar to the ones found on gas station air compressor stations), and several inflation tips for other applications, such as filling balls, etc. For a sale price of only $20 more than the standard 350P set, that's a pretty hard deal to beat. If you've had your eye on one of these, but was holding off because of the price, as I was, now might be the opportune moment. I know I just placed my order.

          Hunger   
I am hungry at the moment. It's only 11:30 in the morning, I ate a normal breakfast of Sultana Bran at 7 am, and even ate an apple half an hour ago, but my stomach is still left wanting.

Last Monday, I was on the exact same schedule, exact same breakfast and I was going fine. Even without an apple. 

I was probably more mentally engaged last week, talking to a friend for 2 hours about life and university assignments and different denominations/cults of Christianity; that might explain it. Today I am trying to focus on actually completing a uni assignment which still seems out of grasp, I look at the screen, then my hands, then the screen again, but all I'm really looking at is my stomach. Staring back at me. It is the one controlling me. Not me. 

It's not even real hunger, its totally fake. I know it is. So I want to beat it. I have more rations of food in my bag, which is just underneath my seat, within reach. I could have a stale but filling, cold hot cross bun in my hands within seconds. In my mouth, into my stomach, up back into my brain within minutes. The energy threading through my blood, into my hands, my mind, back into focus over the next hour. 

I haven't really been reading my bible regularly for the past couple of months. I do have time, I don't have structure. I do have resources, I don't have the will. I do have the need, but I don't have the hunger. 

I have been fasting for days at a time, getting weaker and weaker, and even the time I do spend becomes quick hits, jelly beans, or bits of popcorn, instead of a huge serving of lasagna, layered with biblical theology, a right understanding of context, proper application into my life. 

I'm even learning how to cook. I've just finished a preliminary theology certificate in Biblical Theology. I starve myself to feed the kids as Kids Church, at youth group, in my small group, at bible study. That's not how God's word works though. 

Because, firstly, it does work. Without it I am losing to worldly influences. I need the Bible to fill me up, so that I don't waste my appetite on things that will never last. 

Secondly, have I misunderstood the reality of grace? Unlimited, overflowing, amazing, grace? Reading God's word is a joy that God shares with everyone. It's not something that is limited, finite. That's the opposite of infinite. 

I am hungry for God's word. I better go read it now.

HM Revenue and Customs/Telford, Shropshire, United Kingdom

Cloud Automation and Orchestration Manager (Automation, Manager, Data Analyst, ITIL) - Cloud Delivery Group

Salary: Competitive

Location: Telford

With 60000+ staff and 50m customers HMRC is one of the biggest organisations in the UK, running the largest digital operation in Government and one of the biggest IT estates in Europe. We have six modern, state-of-the-art digital delivery centres where multiple cross functional agile teams thrive in one of the most dynamic and innovative environments in the UK. We are expanding our Cloud Delivery Group and are recruiting into a number of posts within the Revenue & Customs Digital Technology Service in Telford.

Background

This is an exciting opportunity to join HMRC's Cloud Delivery Group (CDG) where you will be working across one of the biggest IT estates in Europe and supporting a large scale and radical transformation that will have a profound impact for both the customers and the staff of HMRC. As part of the Development, Test and Operate (DTO) Directorate, the Cloud Development team is responsible for translating overarching IT strategy into the technical architecture for CDG. This is a unique opportunity for an experienced Technical Architect to work within HMRC's Cloud domain during a time of significant change and transformation as HMRC drives the focus of IT delivery away from product centric solutions and fully exploits the opportunities that Digital Services and Data Analytics can provide. This position will play a key role in supporting Delivery Groups with the creation and execution of technology roadmaps that will drive HMRC's hugely complex IT estate towards a smaller set of strategic systems whilst decommissioning a large proportion of the legacy.

Culligan doesn't specify the % crosslink of their resin. 8% is industry standard, but it should last much longer than 2 years. Heavy chlorine, high iron, high water pressure, and/or misuse/misapplication would contribute to a shorter service life. 2 years is still pretty short.
