          Os 3 PERIGOS de uma Vida Sem ESPIRITUALIDADE!   

Os 3 PERIGOS de uma Vida Sem ESPIRITUALIDADE!

É possível viver sem Desenvolver a Espiritualidade? Ou sem seguir um caminho Espiritual?

Olá eu sou Amanda. Nesse artigo eu vou falar para vocês os 3 Perigos que surgem e acontecem na nossa vida quando nós optamos por não ter um Caminho Espiritual ou por não Desenvolver a Espiritualidade, por não desenvolver a consciência o nosso poder interno a nossa Luz!

Porque quando estou falando aqui sobre Espiritualidade, não estou me referindo a nenhuma religião ou igreja, não estou falando sobre espiritismo, nada disso, até porque estudo todas as Religiões.

Qual é o Sentido de Desenvolver a Espiritualidade?

Estou falando de espiritualidade em um sentido de desenvolver a sua consciência a sua Alma, a sua conexão interna. Espiritualidade é um estado de consciência um Estado do seu Ser.

Preciso Desenvolver a Minha Espiritualidade?

Desenvolver ou não a Espiritualidade é uma escolha que nós temos, mas quando falamos que não queremos desenvolver a nossa espiritualidade é como se nós falássemos que não somos seres humanos.

Essa Espiritualidade, essa consciência faz parte de nós, e quando fechamos os olhos para isso, 3 Perigos surgem em nossa vida!

Os 3 PERIGOS de uma Vida Sem ESPIRITUALIDADE!

1º Perigo: Problemas de relacionamento

Quando não desenvolvemos a nossa Espiritualidade, nós sentimos ciúmes, que o outro está fazendo aquilo só para prejudicar, a gente acredita que o outro nos magoou, a gente sente raiva do outro. Essas explosões emocionais acontecem na nossa vida e ai acabamos perdendo a paciência com quem a gente mais ama, a gente se irrita e acaba falando coisas que depois a gente se arrepende.

2º Perigo: é a Falta de Prosperidade

Estou respondendo a tudo isso, esses perigos, baseada na dezenas de e-mails que a gente recebe todo dia aqui No Feliz Com Você. Então a falta de Prosperidade também se manifesta. Mas como se o material e o espiritual são completamente diferentes? Não! São coisas que estão totalmente interligadas. Você se esforça, você tem talento, você se dedica, trabalha muito mais que pessoas a sua volta, e a prosperidade está ali no alcance das suas mãos e de repente vem aquele balde de água fria, uma despesa extra, dívidas e você acaba ficando sem energia para lidar com isso.

Não desenvolver a Espiritualidade faz com que a gente não esteja conectado com o fluxo da abundância no universo, nós precisamos nos esforçar muito quando na verdade a gente não precisaria se esforçar, a gente só precisa entrar no fluxo, entregar e confiar, fazer a nossa parte sim, mas quando estamos conectados simplesmente flui

3º Perigo: Vazio

Esse vazio, aquela depressão que vai chegando silenciosamente, aquele vazio de domingo, um desânimo porque você simplesmente não vê um sentido na vida, você não tem “porquê viver”, você vai apenas sobrevivendo, muitas vezes você até tenta preencher esse vazio com relacionamentos, compras, comidas, com festas, enfim uma função de coisas externas, mas esse vazio é um vazio da consciência, da alma, do seu ser interno, da parte espiritual e ele não pode ser preenchido com outra coisa a não ser com o Desenvolvimento da Espiritualidade.

Então eu desejo realmente que você desenvolva a sua Espiritualidade, aqui no Feliz Com Você, você encontra outros conteúdos sobre espiritualidade, e se você gostou desse artigo comenta aqui em baixo! E cadastra o seu e-mail para receber dicas áudios, vídeos e muito+!!

Abraços e muita Luz para Vocês

          Exclusive: India presses Microsoft for Windows discount in wake of cyber attacks   

By Euan Rocha

MUMBAI (Reuters) - India is pressing Microsoft Corp to offer a sharply discounted one-time deal to the more than 50 million Windows users in the country so that they can upgrade to the latest Windows 10 operating system in the wake of ransomware attacks.

Microsoft officials in India have "in principle agreed" to the request, Gulshan Rai, India's cyber security coordinator, told Reuters over the phone on Friday.

A spokeswoman for Microsoft in India declined to comment on the matter. Officials at the company's headquarters in the United States and regional headquarters in Asia also declined to comment.

If Microsoft agreed to such a discount, it could open up the global software giant to similar requests from around the world. Rai said the government was in talks with Microsoft management in India. It is not immediately clear whether any other countries were seeking similar deals.

Rai said India began talks with Microsoft after the WannaCry ransomware attack last month, noting that both WannaCry and this week's attack, dubbed by some cyberexperts "NotPetya", exploited vulnerabilities in older iterations of the Windows OS.

"The quantum of the price cut, we expect some detail on in a couple of days," Rai said, adding the Indian government expected the company to offer the software at "throw-away prices."

"It will be a one-time upgrade offer to Windows 10 and it will be a discounted price for the entire country," said Rai, who was hand-picked by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to be the country's first cyber security chief.

Rai declined to be more specific, but said he was confident that it would be "less than a quarter of the current price."

Rai, who has over two decades of experience in different IT areas including cyber security, said his team began coordinating with government agencies and regulators to push for OS upgrades soon after the WannaCry attack began on May 12.

The government's quick action helped minimize the impact of the NotPetya attack, which affected two of India's container port terminals, he said.

The government has also worked with banks to ensure that some 200,000 of the more than 240,000 ATMs in the country, most of which run on older Windows XP systems, have been upgraded with security patches released by Microsoft following the WannaCry attack, Rai said.

This is just an interim solution, however, said Rai, because although the patches fix vulnerabilities in older OS versions, they retain the limitations of those versions.

"New OS versions have different architecture, much improved architecture and much more resiliency," said Rai.

PRICE-SENSITIVE

Windows 10 Home currently retails for 7,999 rupees ($124) in India, while the Pro version of the software typically used by large companies and institutions costs 14,999 rupees ($232).

Roughly 96 percent of an estimated 57 million computers in India currently run on Windows, according to Counterpoint Research. Apple- and Linux-based systems account for the rest.

Given that only a small minority of Windows users in India already have Windows 10, Microsoft could be forgoing several billion dollars of potential revenue if they agreed to sell just the more widely used Home version of Windows 10 at a quarter of its current Indian retail price.

In the price-sensitive Indian market, people using computers in households or small businesses often do not upgrade their OS given the steep costs. The wide use of pirated Windows OS versions, which would not automatically receive security patches, exacerbate the vulnerabilities.

In light of the attacks, Rai said, the government "wants to incentivise the common man to upgrade their systems".

The WannaCry attack in May affected a state-run power firm in western India, while the NotPetya attack this week crippled operations at two port terminals in India operated by shipping giant AP Moller Maersk, which was affected globally.

          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[3]: ARX and other thoughts   
Linux is losing market share! Apple Users are homos! Windows XP crashes all the time! MSWord is a standard! Amiga users are in denial! OSnews is biased towards Apple/Ubunutu/Microsoft! Vista is just XP-SP3/a new skin! Ubuntu runs fine on 128MB! Firefox leaks memory! Novell are the new Microsoft! It's not open source, I'm not interested! EVERYTHING must be GPL! Will that do? :3
          RE[9]: ARX and other thoughts   
The irony is that I use Linux and OS X on a daily basis. But I'm a little tired of the constant mud-slinging by OSS fanatics (such as yourself) against anything which offends their ideological sensibilities (ie. Anything But Microsoft (ABM), anti-DRM, anti-patents, anti-trademarks, anti-hygiene, anti-cool, etc) -- so I'm merely providing another missing voice from the discussion. Don't like it? Too bad.

But I'm a little tired of the constant mud-slinging by Windows fanatics such as yourself against anything which offends their ideological sensibilities, i.e. anti-freedom, anti-choice, anti-consumer, anti-common sense. Don't like it? Too bad. Oh, and since when was Windows "cool"? As for "anything but Microsoft", you don't see me singing the praises of (e.g.) the HURD or Syllable. So it's not so much "anything but Microsoft"; rather "anything but pervasive crap".
          RE[11]: ARX and other thoughts   
Oh, and since when was Windows "cool"? Who cares about Windows? I use Linux, OS X, and Windows. As for "anything but Microsoft", you don't see me singing the praises of (e.g.) the HURD or Syllable. So it's not so much "anything but Microsoft"; rather "anything but pervasive crap". Oh, puh-lease. You're so transparent -- and your posts speak loud and clear on your anti-MS bias.
          RE[12]: ARX and other thoughts   
I didn't say I didn't have an anti-MS bias, I said I wouldn't necessarily use something just because it's not Microsoft. If you can't post coherent arguments without twisting my words or insulting me, then you needn't bother, because I won't take you seriously. There are plenty of things besides MS I wouldn't use either. But I do believe that my own mentioning of "Syllable" today is the first time I have been reminded of it in about a month. That certainly isn't the case where Windows is concerned, despite the fact that if I want it to be, it should be. And the fact that I have an anti-MS bias does not mean I am incapable of judging MS-related facts correctly. In fact it's quite possible that my ABILITY to do so is exactly what LEADS to my anti-MS bias. Finally, there's no reason why I shouldn't take advantage of my "anti-MS bias" to counter all the anti-Linux FUD around here.

          Phil Spencer: 'No hemos tirado la toalla con Japón'   
Xbox lo intentará como marca en el mercado nipón.

Phil Spencer, responsable de la división Xbox, ha ofrecido una entrevista con interesantes titulares a la revista japonesa Weekly Famitsu. En ella, nos habló por encima de los futuros títulos de The Coalition y 343i, padres de Gears of War y Halo actualmente. Pero al mismo tiempo, ha intentado afianzar su estrategia contra un mercado tan complicado para la marca como el japonés. Y ha sido contundente: "Jamás tiraremos la toalla con Japón".

'Jamás tiraremos la toalla en Japón'


Xbox One es una consola poco querida en Japón, si bien es cierto que tiene un nicho y un parqué de consolas superior a las 80.000 unidades -según Media Create-. En cualquier caso, y en relación a su competencia, es una porción de mercado muy pequeña. Microsoft lo ha intentado con diferentes estrategias a lo largo de sus distintas consolas desde 2001 hasta la actualidad, y según Spencer, volverán a tentar una vez más al consumidor japonés con Xbox One X.

"Reconozco lo pasional que es la comunidad de jugadores allí, por lo que jamás me rendiré en Japón"

Phil Spencer aclara que, aunque la consola no tenga fecha de lanzamiento en Japón, llegará, y dentro de un espacio de tiempo muy cercano al llamado lanzamiento mundial. Si bien el ejecutivo reconoce que Japón no es el mayor mercado para Microsoft y Xbox One, sí sabe que es un lugar muy importante y quiere lanzar su consola allí. "Reconozco lo pasional que es la comunidad de jugadores allí, por lo que jamás me rendiré en Japón", comenta.


Y para ello, seguirá buscando desarrolladores japoneses, los cuales, "están viviendo un renacimiento importante", algo que será vital para que "Xbox reciba más apoyo de estudios japoneses" y por lo tanto, así ganarse a los jugadores del país.

          Rare: 'Sea of Thieves es lo mejor que hemos hecho jamás'   
El estudio habla sobre su trabajo en el juego de piratas.

Rare y Sea of Thieves fueron uno de los grandes protagonistas del pasado E3, contando con gran presencia en el show inaugural de Microsoft, en el que pudimos ver un extenso gameplay. El juego de piratas multijugador llegará en 2018 a Xbox One y PC y uno de sus productores ejecutivos, Joe Neate, ha ofrecido a Metro GameCentral sus pensamientos sobre la producción, las metas del videojuego y el concepto del título.

Vídeo:



Creo que es lo mejor que hemos hecho jamás


"Creo que es lo mejor que hemos hecho jamás. Llevo 18 años en esta industria, y creo que es la mejor oportunidad que hemos tenido nunca. Creo en este videojuego firmemente. Este título, y todo lo que hemos conseguido, el horizonte que nos hemos marcado con él, las cosas diferentes que presenta, los estilos de juego y las historias que vivirán los jugadores, son únicas", explica Neate.

"Las cosas tan diferentes que presenta, los estilos de juego y las historias que vivirán los jugadores, son únicas"


Al mismo tiempo, el productor no duda en marcar de forma clara el género al que pertenece el título, desmarcándose de las habituales etiquetas MMO. "Es un mundo de aventuras en el que se pueden compartir historias. No es un MMO. Cada vez que me preguntan, digo que es un "juego online multijugador memorable", eso es todo", comenta entre risas. "Mirad, no importa cuánta gente comparta el mismo mundo virtual, simplemente están ahí y te encontrarás con ellos. Y es la frecuencia de estos encuentros, lo que marcará el juego y lo que verdaderamente importa", añade.

          RE[16]: ARX and other thoughts   
We've already been through this. What you consider "praise" is always a tepid "Microsoft's approach exists ... but it's far worse than anything on Linux or OS X..." Which is to say, your "praise" isn't praise at all.
          Crossout alcanza los tres millones de jugadores en un mes   
Es un MMO de vehículos y lucha en un mundo post-apocalíptico.

Crossout es un MMO free-to-play que combina las mecánicas de la conducción y la construcción. Desarrollado por Targem Games, llegó a PC, PS4 y Xbox One a través de sus tiendas digitales - Steam, PlayStation Store y Microsoft Store - el pasado 30 de mayo y, desde entonces, ha reunido tres millons de jugadores en su primer mes entre las tres plataformas.

"Estamos muy satisfechos con el lanzamiento de Crossout, dado el increíble feedback que hemos recibido de aquellos que pudieron probar el juego en eventos como E3 y Gamescom", señalaba Stanislav Skorb, CEO de Targem Games. "Hemos invertido mucho esfuerzo, entusiasmo y dedicación en hacer que Crossout sea único e interesante".

A su vez, Skorb señalaba que la semana que viene llegarán nuevas aventuras PvE, así como nuevas facciones, accesorios para los vehículos y modos de juego.

          .NET Core 2.0 Preview 2 Brings Refinements for Developers   

Microsoft has released the second preview of .NET Core 2.0. Several changes have been made to increase ease-of-use for developers, but what may be most important is the ability to reference .NET Framework libraries from .NET Core code. Joining these improvements are bug fixes and several additions to its WCF support.

          Keeping an eye on Alibaba Cloud, Aliyun – Part 1   
Alibaba's Jack Ma made headlines across the world last week by laying out a plan for rapid global expansion of China's e-commerce behemoth. In an Investor Conference held at the company's Xixi headquarters in Hangzhou, China, Ma made the bold claim that Alibaba could reach $1 trillion in gross merchandise value by 2021 by becoming the primary online store for 2 billion people, as well as by expanding into new areas, one of which is the international public cloud services business. While Alibaba's investor event was overshadowed somewhat by the news that Amazon will spend $13.7 billion in cash to acquire Whole Foods, the premium U.S. grocery store chain, Jack Ma unveiled a strategy with clear potential to disrupt the cloud market.

Meanwhile, business at Alibaba Group (NYSE: BABA) is 'fantastic' and is only going to get better this year, according to the company CFO. For the most recent fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2017, the company reported revenue of RMB 38,579 million ($5,605 million), an increase of 60% year-over-year, including:

•   Revenue from core commerce of RMB31,570 million ($4,587 million), up 47% year-over-year.

•   Revenue from cloud computing of RMB 2,163 million ($314 million), up 103% year-over-year.

•   Revenue from digital media and entertainment of RMB 3,927 million ($571 million), up 234% year-over-year.

Growth at the parent company is primarily being driven by the steady increase in active buyers on its ecommerce platforms, both in numbers and in the value of goods and services being transacted. Annual active buyers reached 454 million, an increase of 31 million from the 12-month period ended on March 31, 2016. Mobile monthly active users (MAUs) on Alibaba Group’s China retail marketplaces reached 507 million in March, up 97 million over March 2016. Gross merchandise volume (GMV) transacted on Alibaba’s China retail marketplaces in fiscal year 2017 was RMB 3,767 billion ($547 billion), up 22% compared to RMB 3,092 billion in fiscal year 2016.

Alibaba Cloud, or Aliyun as it is known in Chinese, is firmly established as the leading infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) cloud in mainland China and is moving rapidly to become a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) provider and a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) retailer. Some important Aliyun metrics emerged from the Investor presentation, including (with additional commentary):

·         Public cloud is growing: based on Gartner's figures from March 2017, Aliyun estimates the global public cloud market will amount to $245 billion in 2017, growing to $436 billion in 2021, a 15.9% CAGR.

·         China’s public cloud market is growing even faster, with Gartner figures showing China’s public cloud market, valued at $14 billion this year, growing to $25 billion in 2021, a 17.2% CAGR; by 2021, China’s share of the global public cloud market would still be under 6%, which seems odd given the country's share of global GDP is much higher and that ecommerce, social media and mobile technologies are booming in China - why so low versus the U.S. market?

·         Aliyun cited figures from IDC Tracker 2016 H1/H2 Global Cloud Market (IaaS), indicating it currently is the No.4 player in public cloud services worldwide, but with only a 3.2% share; No.1 was AWS, $8.4 billion, 46.1% share; No. 2 Microsoft, $1.4 billion, 7.6% share; No.3 IBM, $1.0 billion, 5.8% share; No.4 Alibaba, $0.57 billion, 3.2% share; No.5 Google, $0.519 billion, 2.9% share.

Clearly, AWS is dominating the public cloud market, especially in the U.S. The other U.S. public cloud players are investing aggressively to catch up and they too seem to have ambitions that reach to the sky. Alibaba's Jack Ma has previously been quoted in the press as saying that Alibaba would catch and surpass Amazon. When it comes to cloud services at least, this will be extremely difficult given its current 3.2% share versus AWS’ 46.1% share, and a capex budget that appears decisively smaller.

In its home market of China, Aliyun's IaaS revenue is equivalent to the next seven players combined. The numbers cited in IDC Tracker 2016 H1/H2 Global Cloud Market are as follows:

·         No.1 – Alibaba Group, $587 million, 40.7% market share

·         No.2 - China Telecom, $123 million, 8.5%

·         No.3 – Tencent, $106 million, 7.3%

·         No.4 – Kingsoft, $87 million, 6.0%

·         No.5 – Ucloud, $79 million, 5.5%

·         No.6 – Microsoft, $72 million, 5.0%

·         No.7 – China Unicom, $67 million, 4.6%

·         No.8 – AWS, $55 million, 3.8%

In addition, as of March 31, 2017 Aliyun had 874,000 paying customers, had 15 data centres worldwide and had 186 cloud service offers. It also claims a 96.7% retention rate amongst its top paying customers in Q1 2017 compared to a year earlier.

Over one-third of China’s Top 500 companies are on Alibaba Cloud, including China's Public Safety Bureau (PSB), CCTV, Sinopec, Sina Weibo, Xinhua News Agency,Toutiao, Geely, Mango TV, CEA, Quanmin Live, Panda TV and DJI, while two-thirds of Chinese Unicorn companies are on Alibaba Cloud. Global Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) now available on Aliyun include Accenture, SAP, Docker, here, SUSE, Haivision, Wowza, AppScale, AppEX, Hillstone, Checkpoint Software Technologies, Hitachi Data Systems and Red Hat.


Aliyun’s Computing Conference 2016 was attended by over 40,000 developers in person, with more than 7 million viewers online. At its investor conference, Aliyun also disclosed a number of major international brands that are now using its services, including Schneider Electric, Shisheido, Philips, Nestle and Vodafone, which is a good start. Nevertheless, attracting international companies will be harder, first, because Alibaba has only just recently begun building data centres outside of China, and two, they will be much less known and trusted than established brands such as IBM.

          Spectra7, providing chips for high-speed connectivity, raises $4.6m   
Spectra7 Microsystems of San Jose, California, a developer of high performance analogue semiconductors, announced that it has closed its previously announced bought deal offering of 11,500,000 units at a price of 40c per unit, including the full exercise of the over-allotment option, for aggregate gross proceeds of $4.6 million.

Spectra7 stated that the public offering was underwritten by a syndicate of underwriters led by Canaccord Genuiy and including Eight Capital and Echelon Wealth Partners.

In addition to the public offering, the company announced that it has closed the first tranche of its private placement of units, as previously announced on June 7th, pursuant to which it issued 3,280,750 units for additional gross proceeds of $1.31 million, including subscriptions by its CEO and certain directors of the company.

Each unit issued through the offerings comprises one common share and one-half of a common share purchase warrant, with each warrant entitling the holder to acquire one common share for 55c per share for a period of two years after closing of the offerings.

Spectra7 stated that the net proceeds from the offerings will be used to fund R&D and for working capital and general corporate purposes.

Separately, the company announced amendments to its $6.50 million senior secured term loan facility with MidCap Financial. The amendments include extending the commencement date for principal payments under the loan facility by a year to June 1, 2018, and the option to extend the maturity date of the facility by a further year upon satisfaction of certain conditions.

In relation to the amendments, Spectra7 has issued warrants to purchase up to 750,000 common shares, with each warrant exercisable for a period of five years into one common share at a price of 39c.

For its most recent quarter ended March 31, 2017, Spectra7 reported revenue of $2.7 million, up 8% versus $2.5 million a year earlier, with gross margin as a percentage of revenue for the quarter at 60%, flat sequentially.


* In January, Spectra7 demonstrated what it claimed as the first QSFP28 Double Density (QSFP28-DD) active copper cable (ACC) integrating its new GaugeChanger Plus GC2502 silicon. It also stated it would begin sampling GaugeChanger Plus QSFP28-DD active copper modules to data centre cable assembly companies during the quarter.

Using the linear design of its GC2502, Spectra7 noted that the modules can support both NRZ and PAM4 signalling, enabling 200 or 400 Gigabit Ethernet transmissions over the same cable.

* Spectra7 also announced sampling of IEEE COM-compliant SFP28 and QSFP28 active copper modules to Tier 1 cable assembly and data centre customers in North America and Asia. It noted the modules were available for evaluation and qualification by customers such as Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Amazon, Baidu and Alibaba, as well as data centre equipment manufacturers such as Cisco, HP, Dell and Hauwei.


* Spectra7 is an analogue semiconductor company delivering solutions enabling high bandwidth, speed and resolution for electronics manufacturers addressing broadband connectivity markets. Based in San Jose, the company has design centres in Markham, Ontario, Cork, Ireland and Little Rock, Arkansas.

今天是俄國作家萊蒙托夫(1814-1841)的兩百歲冥誕,他對後來俄國小說家的心理分析上有重大的影響,也是一直在我心裡占有一個位子的作家,值得我來紀念一番。櫻桃園文化可以說在兩年前就先行慶祝了這個日子,新譯出版《當代英雄:萊蒙托夫經典小說新譯》(其實本該在今年出版,但機緣巧合下早產了)。
http://vs-press.blogspot.tw/2014/10/Lermontov-200birthday.html
......有意思的是,萊蒙托夫一輩子創作,主題多半是對抗宿命。
《當代英雄》在小說最後,主角佩喬林導出這樣的結論:
「我們經常把感覺上的欺騙或理智上的誤解當成確定的信念!……我喜歡懷疑一切:這樣的思考方式並不會妨礙性格的決斷力;相反地,就我而言,就算前方等著我的是一片茫然,我都會勇往直前。」

哇!這個人多麼喜歡懷疑一切,否定一切。如果我們剝掉佩喬林的拜倫式英雄氣質(勇往直前),再拿杜斯妥也夫斯基筆下的地下室人來對照,好像有點似曾相似吧?

看來,托爾斯泰並非憑空說出那樣的話。

《當代英雄:萊蒙托夫經典小說新譯》,櫻桃園文化出版,2012年6月1日

每個時代都值得一讀再讀的俄國心理小說經典

啟發杜斯妥也夫斯基的心理分析,滋養托爾斯泰的寫作風格,令契訶夫奉為文學創作範本,­影響台灣作家鄭清文寫出《現代英雄》

世界級作家同聲讚譽,文藝創作人一致推薦:王聰威、宇文正、吳鈞堯、李維菁、臥斧、紀­大偉、孫梓評、郝譽翔、高翊峰、陳雪、傅月庵、童偉格、辜振豐、黃春明、楊佳嫻、楊照­、熊宗慧、歐茵西、蔡素芬、鄭清文、顏忠賢(按姓名排序)

那不願安逸的衝動,召喚每個年輕的心!

《當代英雄》是一部探索心靈的小說,形式上集遊記、日記、懺悔錄於一體,包含了五篇互­涉的小說〈貝拉〉、〈馬克辛‧馬克辛梅奇〉、〈塔曼〉、〈梅麗公爵小姐〉、〈宿命論者­〉,以及兩篇序文,故事由三位敘事者交織講述,融成一個風格獨特的故事盛宴。它是俄國­文學史上第一部長篇小說(非韻文體),開創了俄國小說體裁形式的新局,也豐富了心理分­析的深度,影響並造就了後輩杜斯妥也夫斯基、托爾斯泰、契訶夫等作家。

「當代英雄」是個外表冷靜內心狂熱的惡魔般人物,體現在小說主角俄國駐高加索軍官佩喬­林的身上,事實上也映照出整個時代社會的諸多惡習,綜合出一副尖刻卻又動人的心靈樣貌­,甚至跨越了時空,讓活在現今的我們亦自覺到心中那不為人知的一面正蠢蠢回應著。佩喬­林擁有無比的意志力,竭盡所能地對抗虛偽的社會,也對抗矛盾的自我。他玩世不恭,粗暴­地剝開世俗的虛假價值觀,恣意揮霍自己的複雜心靈,欺騙女人的感情,嘲笑男人的友情,譏諷政府的專橫,他玩弄整個時代社會,也與內在自我相互爭鬥,真誠地揭露自己的虛無可­悲。

我回顧往事,經常自問:為什麼我不想走命運開給我的那條路?
那裡有清靜的歡樂與心靈的平和等待著我......不,我不願安於這種命運!

正是這份永不耽於安逸的衝動、至高無上的自由意志,召喚著每個時代年輕的心。

作者萊蒙托夫是俄國大詩人,他是說故事的天才,也是探索心理的惡魔,筆觸細膩,對話機­鋒,獨白深刻,小說視角從外部旁觀到內省自觀,使讀者一步步進入到「當代英雄」的內心­世界,同時在優美文字中感受到高加索的絕世風情、愛情冒險的危險關係,以及他那傲睨命­運的自由意志。





“I was ready to love the whole world, but no one understood me, and I learned to hate.”
―from "A Hero of Our Time" By Mikhail Lermontov, with a Foreword by Vladimir Nabokov, Translation by Vladimir Nabokov and Dmitri Nabokov
In its adventurous happenings–its abductions, duels, and sexual intrigues–A Hero of Our Time looks backward to the tales of Sir Walter Scott and Lord Byron, so beloved by Russian society in the 1820s and ’30s. In the character of its protagonist, Pechorin–the archetypal Russian antihero–Lermontov’s novel looks forward to the subsequent glories of a Russian literature that it helped, in great measure, to make possible. This edition includes a Translator’s Foreword by Vladimir Nabokov, who translated the novel in collaboration with his son, Dmitri Nabokov.

作者簡介
米哈伊爾.萊蒙托夫 Mikhail Lermontov, 1814-1841
  繼普希金之後俄國最偉大的詩人,劇作家、小說家,心理小說的藝術手法影響俄國至今。出生於莫斯科,父親是退役軍官,傳說是蘇格蘭貴族移民至俄國的後裔,母親出身顯赫貴族家庭,這段婚姻不被祝福,母親早逝,父親爭取撫養不成被迫離開,作家從小由外祖母撫養。就讀貴族中學期間,因沙皇視察時不滿過分自由的風氣而下令改制為普通中學,他便退學明志,隨即考入莫斯科大學,但一年後與教授爭吵而離校,轉讀彼得堡的軍校,畢業後成為近衛軍驃騎兵團軍官,展開漂泊的軍旅人生。創作上,十四歲開始寫詩,一八三七年為普希金決鬥身亡而發表〈詩人之死〉才揚名文壇,詩中譴責沙皇的宮廷權貴,因此激怒政權,被流放至高加索駐守邊防,在二十七歲那年與人決鬥身亡。多舛的人生經歷、沉鬱的性格和不羈的自由意志,使他的創作獨樹一格,包括數百首抒情詩歌、敘事詩、戲劇、小說,重要作品有戲劇《化裝舞會》、敘事詩《童僧》、敘事詩《惡魔》、小說《當代英雄》等。

作者序
當代英雄
  每一本書的序文,既是最先也是最後的產物,它或作為創作意圖之說明,或作為答覆評論之辯護[譯注1]。然而,不論是道德意圖或報刊攻訐往往都不是讀者關心的重點,因此他們通常不讀序文。這在我們國家,很遺憾尤其如此。我們的閱聽大眾還太年輕、太天真,如果在寓言的結尾沒找到道德訓誡,他們就無法理解文章要說什麼。他們看不透玩笑,感受不到嘲諷,只能說他們被教育得太差。他們還不知道,在一個正經的社會或一本正經的書裡,不可能會出現公然辱罵的情節。在當代文化發展下有一種更犀利的武器應運而生,它幾不可見,但仍致命,它藏身在諂媚的外衣之下,卻帶來難以抵擋的精準打擊。我們的閱聽大眾活像鄉巴佬,偷聽到分屬敵對政府的兩位外交官談話後,還真會相信他們倆會為了彼此最親密的友誼而回去欺瞞自家政府。
  這本書不久前才親身經歷過這種不幸,一些讀者甚至報刊只看到書名便望文生義輕信了[譯注2]。另一些讀者則覺得,怎麼把像當代英雄這麼不道德的人物當作他們的榜樣,因此感到非常受辱,而且還挺認真看待;更有其他讀者非常敏銳地指出,作者是在描繪自己和周遭熟人的形象……老套又可憐的笑話!但是,顯然羅斯[譯注3]就是這樣被創造出來的,這個國家裡一切都推陳出新,除了類似的荒唐事一再重複。在我們所有的神奇童話裡,就算最迷人的童話故事,也未必躲得開意圖人身攻擊的指責!
  慈善的閣下,當代英雄正是一幅肖像,但不是某一個人的,而是一幅集合我們整整一代人充分發展出的惡習所組成的肖像。你們又要跟我說,人不可能這麼壞,那麼我要告訴你們,如果你們相信所有悲劇或浪漫劇中的惡人可能存在的話,為何你們不信佩喬林[譯注4]真有其人呢?如果你們會欣賞更可怕更醜陋的虛構人物,那為何此人的性格,甚至跟虛構人物沒兩樣,就得不到你們的同情憐憫呢?莫非他比你們心裡所想的還更真實?……
  你們會說,這個故事裡道德不彰?對不起,人們的甜食已經餵得夠多了,他們也因此吃壞了肚子:需要一點苦藥和苛刻的真理了。而你們倒別以為,之後本書的作者哪天會妄想成為人類惡習的矯正者。老天啊,救救他別這麼無知吧!他只是要描繪出他所理解的,以及他和你們不幸太常遇見的當代人,藉此娛樂而已。毛病一旦指出來就夠了,要怎麼治療--只有上帝才知道!
譯注
  1.這篇作者序寫於一八四一年春,補刊在這年出版的本書第二版中,藉以回覆輿論及沙皇尼古拉一世對初版的惡評。
  2.當代英雄的俄文原意有:當代的主角、典型人物或英雄。
  3.羅斯是俄羅斯的古稱,在文學語言中有崇敬的感覺,在此增加了嘲諷的強度。
  4.佩喬林是這部小說的主角,姓名語源出自俄國北方一條河的名稱--佩喬拉河(Pechora)。

【譯界人生】丘光:甜食過盛的年代需要苦藥——萊蒙托夫《當代英雄》

當代英雄:萊蒙托夫經典小說新譯
當代英雄:萊蒙托夫經典小說新譯
台灣人對俄羅斯的想像,大概只有蔣方良加明星咖啡館的甜點,但櫻桃園文化總編輯丘光告訴我們這二者之外的事物,「在俄羅斯念書時,跟著老師到森林裡的小木屋避暑,在森林裡散步,撿了松果和摘了各式磨菇,回到家後,把松果丟進『茶炊』裡當燃料煮水,空氣中漫著松木香味……」這樣簡單的敘述,身處亞熱帶的我們,可能沒辦法意會,空氣的松木香意味著春天,而春天在一年有一半以上是冰天雪地的俄羅斯,是多麼的難得。這種地理與文化的距離感,是台灣讀者閱讀俄國小說的障礙之一。

由於自然環境的惡劣,反應到俄國文學上,有三大特色,一種是強調角色的心靈世界,丘光形容讀俄國小說可以讀到「人的靈魂」;其次是小說通常充滿人與自然對抗的精神;另外一個特色便是無所不在的嘲諷,「可能是環境太惡劣、無聊,於是以開玩笑、嘻笑怒罵的方式來對抗。」

大學念的是政大俄文,畢業後還到莫斯科念俄國文學的丘光剛好趕上俄國小說在台灣的輝煌年代,「我高中就讀俄國小說了,70年代流行存在主義,杜斯妥也夫斯基是重要的作者之一,藝文圈很流行俄國小說。再加上,社會氣氛壓抑,俄國小說的特色就是在壓抑的氣氛下尋求寧靜。」丘光引用萊蒙托夫的說法:「一個揚帆出海的青年放棄安逸的生活,去尋找暴風雨,彷彿唯有走在暴風雨之中,才能得到寧靜。」外在環境如此惡劣,但個人的意志是自由的,所以人的意志要不停的去克服外在的惡劣環境,藉由掌握困境才是完全延展個人的自由意志,個人的自由意志完全伸展了,也才有真正的寧靜。

然而,困境沒了,人們也不需要追求「寧靜」了,80年代後,社會開放,閱讀選擇變多,此後俄文小說猶如遙遠記憶裡的化石,沒有讀者,也就沒有新的譯本,流通最廣的仍是1930年代的譯本,「那個時代動亂,翻譯得很匆忙,有些錯誤。」加上年代久遠,譯筆文字與現今閱讀習慣不同。如此惡性循環,讀者跟俄國文學的距離就更遙遠了。

台灣還有一些譯作是從英譯本或日譯本翻成中文,「語言經過二層的轉手翻譯,失漏的就更多了。」比如俄羅斯特殊的煮茶具器「茶炊」(самоваp)在某些英、日語的譯本裡只有音譯,若再從這些中介語言翻成中文,就只能照著音翻成「坎模瓦」而不是「茶炊」。另外,小說中的主角的名字通常又臭又長,看不出差異,丘光也略作調整,「有些地方可以把名字濃縮簡化,或是以頭銜公爵夫人、上尉來代稱,會比較好讀。」

還有更多是關於情境、語氣的,「果戈里的小說人物講話常會在字詞後加S,那是俄國人以下對上,表示卑微的特殊語氣,若翻譯沒辦法將這種S的味道翻出來,果戈里的小說世界也就只是個COMIC(鬧劇)而不是COSMIC(宇宙)。」再者,俄國小說的嘲諷特色,夾槍帶棍的酸人酸語就夾在字句之間,「俄語有些語助詞,一樣的句字可能會有完全相反的意思,但中文不見得可以找到相對應的詞。」

一路被俄文小說餵養大的丘光企圖補足80年代後,俄國文學譯介的空窗期,他看到《夜巡者》的成功,選在2010年契訶夫150歲誕辰,趁勢推出新譯的《帶小狗的女士:契訶夫小說選》,讀者反應不錯,今年六月將再出版被契訶夫尊為小說教科書的萊蒙托夫《當代英雄》。他重新摸索新一代讀者對俄國文學的接納度,「通常娛樂性的類型小說,比如《夜巡者》,或是知名度高的,像契訶夫都賣得不錯。」

丘光-2
(攝影/但以理)
在台灣做俄國小說翻譯應該是很孤獨的吧?「能和原作者有精神的交會,我並不覺得孤單。」俄文已是一項冷門的門檻,丘光挑譯的作品又是另一項門檻,像是「契訶夫選譯的並不是他早期直接、易讀的,《帶小狗的女士》裡都是一些需要年過30、感情有點經歷的人才讀得懂的。」他引用萊蒙托夫的說法,「這個時代甜食大家已經吃得太多了,需要一點苦藥和苛刻的真理了。」唯有在痛苦中才能尋得幸福,在這樣的時代重新出版《當代英雄》,「我只是想告訴現在的年輕人不要太安逸,他們需要有一點暴風雨。」

30年前,俄國小說是苦悶台灣青年的明燈;30年後,俄國小說在甜點過盛的年代,成了一帖醒腦的苦藥。

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

          "Hacker" Tak Selalu Jahat, Contohnya Pemuda 13 Tahun Asal Pakistan Ini   

KOMPAS.com - Ahsan Tahir bukan remaja sembarangan. Di umur yang baru genap 13 tahun, ABG asal Karachi, Pakistan ini sudah menemukan aneka macam celah sekuriti di sistem komputer berbagai perusahaan besar.

Untunglah, Tahir tak berniat jahat. Dia adalah hacker putih alias “ethical hacker” yang mencari kelemahan sistem, lalu memberitahukannya ke perusahaan terkait supaya diperbaiki. Atas jasanya ini, Tahir kemudian diberikan imbalan berupa uang.

Mekanisme pelaporan celah keamanan oleh pihak luar tersebut sudah jamak diterapkan perusahaan-perusahaan teknologi di AS lewat serangkaian program “ bug bounty”. Penemu bug akan diganjar hadiah apabila melaporkannya.

Tahir sang hacker muda berkiprah di ranah “ bug bounty” ini. Perusahaan-perusahaan teknologi yang pernah dibantunya menemukan bug termasuk para raksasa seperti Google dan Microsoft.

 “Semakin banyak hacker yang bekerja, semakin banyak bug ditemukan, semakin aman pula perusahaan-perusaan itu. Sederhana saja sebenarnya,” ujar Tahir menjelaskan motivasinya, sebagaimana dirangkum KompasTekno dari NBC News, Senin (15/5/2017).

Belajar sendiri

Kedua orang tua Tahir tidak memiliki latar belakang teknologi. Tahir pun awalnya tak tahu menahu soal peretasan komputer. Ketertarikannya terhadap dunia hacking berawal ketika situsnya sendiri menjadi korban peretasan.

“Saya kemudian memutuskan untuk mencari bug di situs milik saya,” kata Tahir. Dia belajar hacking secara otodidak, dengan menonton video tutorial di YouTube, membaca blog, dan bereksperimen.

Tahir kemudian menemukan situs yang menerangkan bahwa seorang hacker bisa mendapat bayaran dengan meretas situs perusahaan, kemudian melaporkan celah keamanan yang ditemukan. Itulah yang kemudian dia lakoni.

Di usia yang masih belia, Tahir kini menjadi seorang rising star di industri cyber security. Casey Ellis, pendiri dan CEO perusahaan crowdsourcing sekuriti Bugcrowd, mengatakan bahwa remaja seperti Tahir adalah pejuang masa depan di ranah keamanan digital.

“Digital native (orang yang sejak kecil familiar dengan teknologi komputer dan internet) berpotensi besar untuk menjadi hacker yang mahir. Mereka bisa memberi sumbangsih luar biasa untuk perusahaan yang hendak menjaga keamanan bisnis dan konsumen,” kata Ellis.

Program bug bounty kini sudah banyak digelar oleh banyak perusahaan, mulai dari Apple hingga Pentagon. Maklumlah, hacker luar biasanya bisa memberikan masukan tentang celah keamanan yang luput dari pengamatan tim sekuriti internal perusahaan.

Besarnya hadiah uang yang ditawarkan bermacam-macam, tergantung kebijakan perusahaan dan tingkat kegawatan bug. Rentangnya bisa antara 50 dollar AS hingga 350.000 dollar AS.

Ingin bantu mengamankan internet

Tiap hari usai bersekolah, Tahir pulang ke rumah untuk hacking selama enam jam. Setelah itu dia mengerjakan PR dan tugas-tugas lain.

Penghasilannya dari berburu bug terbilang besar dibanding remaja seusianya yang menempuh jalan lain untuk mencari sampingan.

Tahir bahkan bisa membeli iPhone 7 dan sedang menabung untuk membeli mobil. Rencananya mobil akan dibeli ketika dia sudah berusia 18 tahun dan boleh memiliki SIM.

Usia Tahir yang masih belia kadang menjadi kendala dalam mengikuti program bug bounty. Microsoft, misalnya, menetapkan usia minimal 14 tahun buat hacker yang ikut serta. Tahir pun baru bisa menarik bayaran sebesar 500 dollar AS dari Microsoft pada Juli nanti, saat dia genap berusia 14 tahun.

Saat dewasa nanti, Tahir bercita-cita ingin menjadi software engineer sambil terus terus melakoni bug bounty sebagai pekerjaan sampingan.  Dia ingin bantu membuat internet jadi tempat yang lebih aman dan menyebarkan ilmu hacking yang dimilikinya lewat tutorial YouTube.  

“Saya bangga bisa ikut membantu mengamankan internet dan dunia,” kata Tahir. “Ini karena mungkin peperangan berikutnya akan berlangsung di jagat cyber.”

Moin Frank,

wie tauscht man den Treiber denn aus? Eine einfache Installation des Samsung Treibers hat bei mir keinen Erfolg gehabt - im Gerätemenager taucht immer noch der Microsoft Treiber auf.

Ich frage mich allerdings, warum der Samsung Treiber nicht direkt installiert wird. Die freundliche Dame vom Dell Support riet mir, mein Windows neu zu installieren - was in dem Fall ja nicht geholfen hätte - oder mich an die (kostenpflichtige) Dell Solution Station zu wenden.

Bis dann,

Wow. I get buried for a week and get transported into a parallel universe. Microsoft and Novell make an historic agreement. And while some folks in the open source community aren't happy, it seems most (including me) think this is a pretty good deal for building software in general... I mean, being able to just these three things:
  • "...Microsoft and Novell will jointly develop a compelling virtualization offering for Linux and Windows..."
- Right on!
  • "...make it easier for customers to federate Microsoft Active Directory with Novell eDirectory"
- This has been a pain...
  • "...will take steps to make translators available to improve interoperability between Open XML and OpenDocument formats"
Nice! Guys, in the words of the great philosopher and sage, Rodney King "Can't we all just get along?"... I think that this agreement moves all of us who build software one step closer to doing just that.

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. "

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 lean industrial companies complete "Freedom Of Choice" to select the solutions and platform that best meets the business requirements of manufacturers and distributors. The comprehensive CRM Industrial application suite is available for use on premise or on-demand as a hosted service. Industrial leaders often build departmental lean CRM solutions with the award winning Commence Lean 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.

          Corrosion Resistance Test   

For stainless steel surgical instruments, there are many tests which can be done,but the most important are the following:-

i- Copper Sulphate Test:
   During the process of manufacturing, it is very likely that certain free iron particles are left on the surface, which  are not visible ordinarily. This test is carried out to confirm the presence or otherwise of such particles. This test is done in a solution of CUSO and HSO at 15 C for 6 minutes. The instruments are thoroughly cleaned with soap and water and then rinsed in hot water. The instruments are then immersed in CUSO solution which   reacts with any Free Iron  on the surface of the instruments, and copper deposits on them. This Cu.deposit is removed by wet piece of cotton cloth. There shall be no plating at the periphery or drops of solution or at soldered or brazed junctions or dulling of polished surface caused by coppersulphate solution shall be disregarded. A slight plating of copper in small part of looks, ratchets and serrations of jaws shall also be discarded.

ii- Boil Test:
 The boil test requires immersing the instruments, in boiling distilled water. The instruments are cleaned with soapier water and thoroughly rinsed in hot water before putting in boiling water. The instruments are heated in boiling water for 30 minutes and let to stay in the water for 2 hours. These are removed and kept for 2 hours in open air prior to examination. The instruments are wiped with a dry cloth and inspected for visible sign of corrosion. Any blemish, not removed by vigorous hand rubbing with a cloth and shall be considered evidence of corrosion.

A cyberattack that caused indiscriminate economic damage around the world was apparently designed to create maximum havoc in Russia’s neighbor and adversary Ukraine, security researchers said. While the rogue software used in the attack was configured as extortionate “ransomware,” that may have just been a ruse. “It is clear that this was targeted indiscriminately at Ukrainian businesses, and the Ukrainian government,” Jake Williams, president of the security firm Rendition Infosec and a former member of the U.S. National Security Agency’s elite cyberwarfare group, told The Associated Press in an online chat. “The ‘ransomware’ component is just a smokescreen (and a bad one).” UKRAINE IN PAIN Although the attack was global in its reach, Ukraine bore the brunt. Computers were disabled at banks, government agencies, energy companies, supermarkets, railways and telecommunications providers. Many of these organizations said they had recovered by Thursday, although some experts suspected that work was incomplete. “There is still a lot of damage, especially in banks,” said Victor Zhora, CEO of the Kiev cybersecurity firm InfoSafe. “ATMs are working (again) but some bank operations are still limited.” He estimated damage in “the millions of dollars, perhaps tens of millions.” And that’s just in Ukraine. Microsoft said the malware hit at least 64 nations, including Russia, Germany and the United States. “I expect that we will see additional fallout from this is the coming days,” said Williams. In Ukraine, suspicion immediately fell on hackers affiliated with Vladimir Putin’s regime, although there is no direct, public evidence tying Russia to the attack. Relations between the two nations have been tense since Moscow annexed the Crimean peninsula from Ukraine in 2014. Pro-Russian fighters are still battling the government in eastern Ukraine. Experts have also blamed pro-Russian hackers for major cyberattacks on the Ukrainian power grid in 2015 and 2016, assaults that have turned the eastern European nation into the world’s leading cyberwarfare testing ground. A disruptive attack on the nation’s voting system ahead of 2014 national elections is also attributed to Russia. THE MOSCOW CONNECTION The malicious program, which researchers are calling NotPetya, initially appeared to be ransomware. Such malware locks up victims’ files by encrypting them, then holds them hostage while demanding payment — usually in bitcoin, the hard-to-trace digital currency. But researchers said the culprits would have been hard-pressed to make money off the scheme. They appear to have relied on a single email address that was blocked almost immediately and a single bitcoin account that collected the relatively puny sum of $10,000. Firms including Russia’s anti-virus Kaspersky Lab, said clues in the code indicate that the program’s authors would have been incapable of decrypting the data, further evidence that the ransom demands were a smoke screen. The timing was intriguing, too. The attack came the same day as the assassination of a senior Ukrainian military intelligence officer and a day before a national holiday celebrating the new Ukrainian constitution signed after the breakup of the Soviet Union. “Everything being said so far does point to Russia being a leading candidate for a suspect in this attack,” said Robert M. Lee, CEO of Dragos Inc. an expert who has studied the attacks on Ukraine’s power grid. What’s most worrisome and reprehensible, said Lee, is that whoever was behind the attack was unconcerned about the indiscriminate, collateral damage it […]

          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.
          Pitfalls of changing a processor   

I recently upgraded my main Media Center to a Phenom II x4 940 from an AMD 5000+. Looks like AMD have finally got their act together on the Phenoms and this runs really nicely  (5.9 in Vista) and cooler than the 5000 did.

I did have a couple of real gotchas though. When I first booted up I had an error message from Windows Media Player saying its network sharing service had errored. Then when I ran media center all was fine until I tried to play back recorded tv or view live tv when I just got a crash.

My immediate thought was a problem with the chip or the memory I had installed at the same time so I ran all the diagnostics and found no errors.

Suddenly it dawned DRM - a lot of DRM systems use part of the Chip ID to issue keys. With such a major change in chip this surely would have changed.

Doing some digging I found http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/918218 

Following the steps in there to reset the DRM store worked and I could play my recorded tv, watch live tv and no longer had a Windows Media Player issue. I did lose the drm license to one piece of content but that was not an issue.

Note if you use iTunes it is also going to think you are have a new PC so you will need to license your content for that PC

Next issue Cyberlink PowerDVD Ultra wouldn't play Blu-Ray disks. More to the point it would show the Menu but wouldn't play any selected content. I assume this is DRM again. The only way i could work round this one was to uninstall PowerDVD and reinstall - fortunately I still had my license key.

So a can of worms being eaten by a flock of pigeons but all now sorted and my PC is incredibly responsive so worth all the effort.


          Tip of the day - Quieten your Hard Disk with Vista ReadyBoost   
A lot has been written about the performance advantage of adding a memory card or usb stick to your Vista machine to make use of the ReadyBoost feature but one interesting side effect is that it can also reduce the amount of access needed to your hard disk and appear to make it quieter.

To quote the official Microsoft blurb:


The flash memory device serves as an additional memory cache—that is, memory that the computer can access much more quickly than it can access data on the hard drive. Windows ReadyBoost relies on the intelligent memory management of Windows SuperFetch and can significantly improve system responsiveness.


Now a lot of this data would normally be held on the hard disk and will need reading regularly, this can be the cause of the chuntering you can hear from lots of hard drives. Putting in a high-speed flash device can significantly reduce this. Obviously its not going to make the drive any quieter when it actually has to access data but it certainly has had avery beneficial effect where I have tried it.

Performance and a quieter life - two for the price of one :-)

Edit: I should point out that the cache is still written to disk so if you swap programs a lot it will still need to write out the changes and you will see less benefit in terms of noise. Q: Why does it still write to disk? A: Have you never pulled out a USB key by accident? The system need something to fall back on.

          Hoy dejo de estar premiado como Microsoft MVP: Adiós MVPs. Hola Comunidades Técnicas. It´s been Great!   
Ayer fue mi último día con el galardón de Most Valuable Professional que otorga Microsoft a profesionales técnicos que comparten su trabajo en las comunidades. Gente que invierte su tiempo en mantener un foro, un blog, que participa en grupos de debate de Facebook o que participa reuniones alrededor de unas cervezas para charlar de bots, de BigData, de seguridad informática, hacking o programación en cualquier lenguaje.

Figura 1: Adiós MVPs. Hola Comunidades Técnicas.

En mi caso han sido un porrón de años. En concreto desde el 1 de Julio del año 2004 al 30 de Junio de 2017. Pero es lo que sucede cuando te haces mayor, que todo se mide en una buena cantidad de años. Años que pasan volando mientras disfrutas con la tecnología, las cosas que haces, y las cosas que vives. Estar premiado como MVP por Microsoft nunca me supuso ninguna restricción para hacer o decir lo que quisiera sobre las tecnologías de la compañía, y de hecho he sido muy crítico o muy fan dependiendo de qué cosas. En esta charla contaba algunas de las anécdotas de más de una década como MVP.


Figura 2: Una década como MVP de Seguridad es una Barbaridad

Ahora se acabó mi tiempo como MVP, porque ya no me da la vida para seguir con el ritmo de eventos, artículos, participación en comunidades, que he llevado años atrás, y hay que valorar y dejar paso a los jóvenes MVP que hoy son premiados con este galardón. Aún recuerdo como fue el primer día, que lo refleja perfectamente este vídeo. Ser MVP te hace sentir genial...


Figura 3: I'm an Microsoft MVP and I feel Great!

Para mí fue una experiencia genial, rodeado de gente maravillosa con la que aprendí y de la que me enamoré. Gente con pasión por lo que hace, por la tecnología, por mejorar todo un poco más, por ayudar al que quiere aprender, por compartir conocimiento y experiencias. Gente con la que me reí y con la que, principalmente viví. Luis Franco, un MVP que siempre estuvo ahí conmigo.

Hoy en día, el número de comunidades tecnológicas con que contamos es enorme. Goza de buena salud ver las comunidades de desarrolladores, de hacking o de Big Data, por citar algunas. Todas las semanas hay un montón de reuniones, publicaciones de artículos, estudios, conferencias, etcétera. Se ha creado una masa crítica de amantes de la tecnología que ayuda a que cada vez la tecnología avance más deprisa. Pero hace años no era así. Hay que agradecer a las herramientas de comunicación que tenemos que nos ayudan a generar estos grupos de interés sobre determinados temas, que nos van llevando un poco más allá en el camino del conocimiento.

Figura 5: Los MVPs del Calendario Tórrido del 2009. Yo soy uno de ellos (SIN GORRO), a otro le tocó la lotería del navidad, alguno está en Microsoft ahora, y otros... iban mucho y muy poco al gimnasio, pero todos son geniales.

Con los MVPs, hace muchos años, hacíamos lo que podíamos. Compartíamos y nos apuntábamos a todo. Hasta a desnudarse en un Calendario Tórrido para sacar fondos para causas sociales. Y siempre con la diversión. Aquí, dando una charla de técnicas de inyección en aplicaciones web disfrazados de los 4 Fantásticos. El malo, lógicamente, era el Doctor Doom (el que doctor que pone las inyecciones que era malo, malísimo).

Figura 6: Con otro MVP, Ricardo Varela, dando una charla sobre hacking Web.
Al loro el cinturón de Batman. Tope Cool el cross-over!

Para mí, pertenecer a la comunidad de los MVPs fue genial. Colaboré con muchos, aprendí de otros, socialicé, di charlas, me vi vídeos, llegué a vivir con alguno de ellos, y siempre, siempre, siempre, disfruté de una buena charla sobre tecnología o de un proyecto conjunto. Incluso en el lanzamiento de AURA trabajé con dos MVPs de solera.

A post shared by Chema Alonso (@chemaalonso) on

Hoy digo adiós al programa de MVPs, pero ni mucho a las comunidades técnicas, donde seguiré aportando mi granito de arena en lo que pueda. Con mi blog, con mis charlas puntuales, con algún libro, con algún artículo en alguna revista, o con una reunión en una bolera con jóvenes universitarios de la Universidad Autónoma de Madrid que se queden sin foto por no llevar gorro ;).

Saludos Malignos!

PD: Quiero dar las gracias a Alberto Amescua y Cristina González, que me cuidaron durante todos estos años en el grupo de MVPs, y a todos y cada uno de los que habéis sido, sois o seréis MVPs en cualquier rincón del mundo. Tenéis todo mi respeto, cariño y admiración.

In The Land Of Bill Gates, A Standoff Over Money For Schools
Not one of Washington State’s 13 resident billionaires pays a dime in income tax.



ZACHARY WARREN SPENDS A LOT OF HIS TIME THINKING ABOUT CHAIRS. Desk chairs, to be more specific. Though there’s a range of chair sizes in the classroom where he’s taught for years in the Seattle Public School system, he says, “They don’t fit the kids. The desks don’t fit the kids.”
The problem, Warren believes, is that public education in his state isn’t fully-funded. Which means equipment doesn’t always work. Or adequate supplies simply aren’t available. So teachers like him — who already struggle to make it on salaries that are well below what it takes to live in the blazing Seattle housing market — must dig into their own pockets to pay for them. And when it comes to desk chairs, well, they aren’t exactly available for a couple bucks at the corner store.
Teachers being asked to foot the bill isn’t a pattern that’s limited to Washington; it’s a nationwide problem, due in large part to the fact that teachers, who are evaluated on student success, can’t do their jobs without basic supplies. But it’s surprising that in a prosperous state with a booming economy — home to two of the world’s biggest corporations, Amazon and Microsoft — schools can’t seem to put the coins together to pay for pencils and paste.
It’s a familiar conundrum for the Washington State legislature. Colloquially referred to as the WaLeg, the state government entered its second special session this month, an extension to the 2017 legislative period. Though the word “special” is right in the name, there’s nothing unique or surprising about the fact that lawmakers are staying in Olympia, the capitol, for an extra 30 days. It happens almost every year.
Despite the state’s reputation as a liberal haven, the WaLeg is split nearly dead in half down the aisle (the Senate has 24 Democrats and 25 Republicans, while the House has 50 Democrats and 48 Republicans). It’s a division that has led to some unusual funding shortfalls in one of the nation’s wealthiest states: Not a single one In The Land Of Bill Gates, A Standoff Over Money For Schools | GOOD Education:

Silicon Valley's Influence on Public Education 



The New York Times published an interesting article about how Silicon Valley companies have pushed coding into public schools.
Natasha Singer writes:
At a White House gathering of tech titans last week, Timothy D. Cook, the chief executive of Apple, delivered a blunt message to President Trump on how public schools could better serve the nation’s needs. To help solve a “huge deficit in the skills that we need today,” Mr. Cook said, the government should do its part to make sure students learn computer programming.
“Coding,” Mr. Cook told the president, “should be a requirement in every public school.”
The Apple chief’s education mandate was just the latest tech company push for coding courses in schools. But even without Mr. Trump’s support, Silicon Valley is already advancing that agenda — thanks largely to the marketing prowess of Code.org, an industry-backed nonprofit group.

          Dynamics Balance Sheet P&L Issue - Please Assist   

We are the accountants for a client who use Microsoft Dynamics.  We do not know the year or version.  We cannot seem to get any guidance for find literature on the following issue:

 

  • 09/30/2016 year closed properly.
    • In the subsequent period, the retained earnings is overstated by the Net Income from 09/30/2016 (as if the net income was closed to this account twice)
    • In the subsequent period, the period’s earnings on the balance sheet are understated by the Net Income from 09/30/2016
      • However, the Profit and Loss for the subsequent period is showing the proper Net Income for the Subsequent Period

 

Is there a likely reason why this is happening, and how do we go about fixing it?

Example:  

  • Net Income for 09/30/2016 was $50,000 and Retained Earnings started at $100,000.
  • Profit and Loss from 10/01/2016 - 06/30/2017 shows an accurate $30,000
  • Balance Sheet at 06/30/2017 shows Retained Earnings as $200,000 instead of $150,000.  It also shows earnings as ($20,000) as opposed to $30,000.

How can the Profit and Loss Net Income be accurate, and the Balance Sheet Retained Earnings and Net Income both be off by the prior year's Net Income?

          Creating a SharePoint DataLake with SQL Server using Enzo Unified   

Originally posted on: http://geekswithblogs.net/hroggero/archive/2017/06/19/creating-a-sharepoint-datalake-with-sql-server-using-enzo-unified.aspx

In this blog post I will show how you can easily copy a SharePoint list to a SQL Server table, and keep the data updated one a specific frequency, allowing you to easily create a DataLake for your SharePoint lists. This will work with SharePoint 2013 and higher, and with SharePoint Online. While you can spend a large amount of time learning the SharePoint APIs and its many subtleties, it is far more efficient to configure simple replication jobs that will work under most scenarios.

The information provided in this post will help you get started in setting a replication of SharePoint lists to a SQL Server database, so that you can query the local SQL Server database from Excel, Reporting tools, or even directly to the database. You should also note that Enzo Unified provides direct real-time access to SharePoint Lists through native SQL commands so you can view, manage and update SharePoint List Items.

To try the steps provided in this lab, you will need the latest version of Enzo Unified (1.7 or higher) provided here:  http://www.enzounified.com/download. The download page also contains installation instructions.

Enzo Unified Configuration

Once Enzo Unified has been installed, start Enzo Manager (located in the Enzo Manager directory where Enzo was installed). Click on File –> Connect and enter the local Enzo connection information. 

NOTE:  Enzo Unified is a Windows Service that looks like SQL Server; you must connect Enzo Manager to Enzo Unified which by default is running on port 9550. The password should be the one you specified during the installation steps. The following screen shows typical connection settings against Enzo Unified:

Create Connection Strings

Next, you will need to create “Central Connection Strings” so that Enzo will know how to connect to the source system (SharePoint) and the destination database (SQL Server). You manage connection strings from the Configuration –> Manage Connection Strings menu. In the screen below, you can see that a few connection strings have been created. The first one is actually a connection string to Enzo Unified, which we will need later.

image

The next step is to configure the SharePoint adapter by specifying the credentials used by Enzo Unified. Configuring the SharePoint adapter is trivial: three parameters are needed: a SharePoint login name, the password for the login, and the URL to your SharePoint site. You should make sure the login has enough rights to access SharePoint lists and access SharePoint Fields.

Once the configuration to the SharePoint site is complete, you can execute commands against Enzo Unified using SQL Server Management Studio.

Fetch records from SharePoint using SQL Server Management Studio

To try the above configuration, open SQL Server Management Studio, and connect to Enzo Unified (not SQL Server). From the same machine where Enzo is running, a typical connection screen looks like this:

image

Once you are connected to Enzo Unified, and assuming your SharePoint site has a list called Enzo Test, you can run simple SQL commands like this:

SELECT * FROM SharePoint.[list@Enzo Test]

Create a Virtual Table

You will also need to create a Virtual Table in Enzo so that the SharePoint list looks like a table in Enzo Unified. A Virtual Table is made of columns that match the SharePoint list you want to replicate. To do this, open Enzo Manager, select the SharePoint adapter, and create a new Virtual Table by clicking on the NEW icon; provide a name for the Virtual Table, and select the columns to create through a picker. In the example below, I am creating a Virtual Table called vEnzoTest, which mirrors a SharePoint List called ‘Enzo Test’.

image

The picker allows you to execute the SQL command to validate it is working. Clicking OK will automatically add all the requested columns to the Virtual Table.

Make sure to pick the ID and Modified columns; this will be required later.

image

Once completed, I can run commands like this against the SharePoint adapter using SQL Server Management Studio:

SELECT * FROM SharePoint.vEnzoTest

SELECT * FROM SharePoint.vEnzoTest WHERE Title ID > 100

The difference with the previous SQL command is that the virtual table will only return the columns specified by the Virtual Table.

Configure Data Sync Jobs

Once the Virtual Table has been created, you can add new Jobs to copy the SharePoint data into SQL Server, and keep updates synchronized with the SQL Server table. A simple configuration screen allows you to setup the data sync jobs. You can choose which operations to replicate, the destination table, and a schedule for data updates. In the example below I am setting up a 3 data sync jobs of the vPosts Virtual Table: initialization, insert/update, and delete, updated every 5 minutes.

image

You can also use Enzo Manager to monitor the data sync jobs, or run them manually.

Once the jobs have been created, you can simply connect to the SQL Server database (not Enzo Unified) and see the replicated data. For example, you can connect to SQL Server, and run the following statement assuming the above destination table (as shown in the screenshot) has been created.

SELECT * FROM DataLake.SharePoint.vPosts

Conclusion

This post shows you how to easily configure Enzo Unified to replicate SharePoint lists to a local SQL Server database to enable reporting and other data integration projects such as a Data Lake.

          Show off your API with a little Swagger...   

Originally posted on: http://geekswithblogs.net/ballhaus/archive/2017/06/14/swaggerapi.aspx


So you've built yourself a ground-breaking RESTful .NET Web Api that's effectively going to change the world... awesome!

You've even sold and marketed the idea to maybe your boss or potential client... fantastic!

And then they ask you for documentation... oops!

You're not alone, developers are notorious for "saving the world" with their code and yet always seem to overlook the obvious. But fear not!

There are a few easy solutions that you can implement that will actually do all the documentation work for you. Microsoft has their own built-in version of this, however I'm going to focus today on a specification called "Swagger."  More specifically, the implementation technology we'll be using to generate the Swagger documentation with the Web Api framework is called "Swashbuckle."

Why Swashbuckle?

Well not only does Swashbuckle allow you to have very nicely formatted documentation, it will also handle auto-generating interactive test cases for you so your consumers can easily play around with your Api while they're familiarizing themselves with it's overall usage.

Here's a couple screenshots of our Demo API found here: http://www.holisticstg.com




Here is an example of one of those interactive test cases I mentioned earlier...





"Ok, I'm sold. How do I set this up for my Web Api?"

There is actually just a few simple steps to get this up and running...

  • Open NuGet package manager within Visual Studio and install "Swashbuckle.Net45"


  • After the NuGet package is installed, you'll notice a new file has been added to your "App_Start" folder called "SwaggerConfig.cs" This file allows you to customize various aspects of your generated Swagger documentation, we'll dive more into that in a just a bit.
  • For now, you can simply use your browser and point to the root url of your api and append it with "/swagger"

So here is my controller code for our Demo API:

/// <summary>
/// Holistics Technology Group Demo API
/// </summary>
public class DemoApiController : ApiController
{
    /// <summary>
    /// Simple string example
    /// </summary>
    /// <returns>string</returns>
    [HttpGet]
    [Route("api/demoapi/helloworld")]
    public async Task<string> StringExample()
    {
        return await Task.Factory.StartNew(() => "Hello from Holistics Technology Group!");
    }

    /// <summary>
    /// Get weather summary
    /// </summary>
    /// <param name="zipCode">zip code</param>
    /// <returns>string</returns>
    [HttpPost]
    [Route("api/demoapi/todaysweather")]
    public async Task<string> Summary(string zipCode)
    {
        return await Task.Factory.StartNew(() => zipCode.LookupWeather().TodaySummary);
    }

    /// <summary>
    /// Get weather forecast object
    /// </summary>
    /// <param name="zipCode">zip code</param>
    /// <returns>WeatherData</returns>
    [HttpPost]
    [Route("api/demoapi/threedayforecast")]
    [ResponseType(typeof(WeatherData))]
    public async Task<WeatherData> Forecast(string zipCode)
    {
        return await Task.Factory.StartNew(() => zipCode.LookupWeather());
    }
}

Now that we have Swashbuckle wired up properly, we'll want to configure it to read in our XML code comments. This is where the SwaggerConfig.cs file comes into play. But first we'll need to tell Visual Studio to actually save our XML comments into our bin directory.


Then open up SwaggerConfig.cs and un-comment the line that contains "c.IncludeXmlComments" and supply the path your actual XML file name you set just above.


Swashbuckle is very configurable and we have only scratched the surface of what it can do, but this should be enough to get you up and running.

You can find out more information at the Swashbuckle GitHub site.



          The TDLR; on easily managing .NET concurrent asynchronous threads   

Originally posted on: http://geekswithblogs.net/ballhaus/archive/2017/06/12/the-tdlr-on-easily-managing-.net-concurrent-asynchronous-threads.aspx

Ever had the requirement for your code to perform some series of background actions, say to query an API for weather data for various locations, but your provider caps you at having only 2 max concurrent connections at any given time? If so, then you’ve already gone through the wealth of information found online for a solution. I’ve seen quite a few myself and yes, they all work just fine!

For me, I like to keep things as simple as possible… so with that in mind and knowing that you’re most likely here looking for quick code samples, here is my TDLR; for handling this type of scenario:


var mockActions = new List<Action>
{
    { () => { Console.WriteLine("Get Weather for Zip 1"); Thread.Sleep(1500); Console.WriteLine("Save Results for Zip 1"); } },
    { () => { Console.WriteLine("Get Weather for Zip 2"); Thread.Sleep(1500); Console.WriteLine("Save Results for Zip 2"); } },
    { () => { Console.WriteLine("Get Weather for Zip 3"); Thread.Sleep(1500); Console.WriteLine("Save Results for Zip 3"); } },
    { () => { Console.WriteLine("Get Weather for Zip 4"); Thread.Sleep(1500); Console.WriteLine("Save Results for Zip 4"); } },
    { () => { Console.WriteLine("Get Weather for Zip 5"); Thread.Sleep(1500); Console.WriteLine("Save Results for Zip 5"); } }
};

//Currently only allowing 2 concurrent threads to run at any given time
var threadBroker = new SemaphoreSlim(2); 

Task.WhenAll(mockActions.Select(iAction => Task.Run(() =>
{
    try
    {
        threadBroker.WaitAsync().Wait();
        iAction();
    }
    finally
    {
        threadBroker.Release();
    }
}))).Wait();


NOTE: You'll want to implement your own exception handling and logging inside your try/finally block ,which I have left out for brevity. 

Now before we actually get into what's going on, here's the above wrapped into a nice little extension method...


public static class AsyncExtensions
{
    public static void ExecuteAsync(this IEnumerable<Action> actions, int maxCurrentThreads = 1)
    {
        var threadBroker = new SemaphoreSlim(maxCurrentThreads);
Task.WhenAll(actions.Select(iAction => Task.Run(() => { try { threadBroker.WaitAsync().Wait(); iAction(); } finally { threadBroker.Release(); } }))).Wait(); } }

Then, using the same mockActions object above, here's is how we consume the extension method:

mockActions.ExecuteAsync(2);

This really simplifies most of the more common concurrent asynchronous threading tasks that I run into on a day to day basis... 

So what's going on here? 

The key component of what we're utilizing here is SemaphoreSlim, which allows for managing the total number of concurrent threads that we want to have executing at any given time. 

This is ideal for situations where the thread wait times are "expected to be very short" (that's Microsoft's official documentation). The reason for this is because SemaphoreSlim implements something called SpinWait, which is fast however keeps the CPU active while waiting for a thread resource to free up. 

In situations where the wait times might be on the longer side, you can use the SemaphoreSlim's big brother, Semaphore. Semaphore isn't quite as fast as it's little brother however is a bit more robust. 

Now let's look at a more realistic example utilizing our extension method while sticking with our weather API scenario:


var locker = new object();
var results = new List<string>();

var zipCodes = new[] { "1111111", "2222222", "3333333", "4444444", "5555555" };

zipCodes.Aggregate(new List<Action>(), (list, zip) =>
{
    list.Add(() =>
    {
        var jsonResult = string.Format("Returned weather Json for zip {0}", zip); //Mock API call for the zip code's weather

        //Must ensure only one thread at a time can access "results" list
        lock (locker)
        {
            results.Add(jsonResult);
        }
    });

    return list;
}).ExecuteAsync(2);

//Now simply do something with your "results" weather data



          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.

namespace ClientIoT
{

    public class VoiceResponse
    {
        public string Response = null;
        public double RawConfidence = 0;
    }

    public class VoiceInput
    {
        private const int SPEECH_TIMEOUT = 3;
        private System.Threading.Timer verifyStatus;
        private string lastInput = "";

                recognizerInput = new SpeechRecognizer();
                recognizerInput.ContinuousRecognitionSession.ResultGenerated += ContinuousRecognitionSession_InputResultGenerated;

                recognizerInput.Timeouts.BabbleTimeout = TimeSpan.FromSeconds(timeout);

                }
            }
            catch (Exception ex2)

            }
            return resp;
        }

        {
            try
            {
                Debug.WriteLine("VOICE INPUT - QUALITY ISSUE: " + args.Problem.ToString());
            }
            catch (Exception ex)
            {
                Debug.WriteLine("** VOICE INPUT - RecognizerInput_RecognitionQualityDegrading ** " + ex.Message);
            }
        }

        private void ContinuousRecognitionSession_Completed(SpeechContinuousRecognitionSession sender, SpeechContinuousRecognitionCompletedEventArgs args)
        {
            if (args.Status == SpeechRecognitionResultStatus.Success
                || args.Status == SpeechRecognitionResultStatus.TimeoutExceeded)
                success = true;
            completed = true;
           
        }

        private void ContinuousRecognitionSession_InputResultGenerated(SpeechContinuousRecognitionSession sender, SpeechContinuousRecognitionResultGeneratedEventArgs args)
        {
            try
            {
                lastInput = "";
                if ((args.Result.Text ?? "").Length > 0)
                {
                    lastInput = args.Result.Text;
                    lastRawConfidence = args.Result.RawConfidence;
                    Debug.WriteLine(" " + lastInput);
                }
            }
            catch (Exception ex)
            {
                Debug.WriteLine("** ContinuousRecognitionSession_InputResultGenerated ** " + ex.Message);
            }
        }

        private void InputRecognizerStateChanged(SpeechRecognizer sender, SpeechRecognizerStateChangedEventArgs args)
        {
            Debug.WriteLine("  Input Speech recognizer state: " + args.State.ToString());
        }
    }
}

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.

          Getting SQL Server MetaData the EASY Way Using SSMS   

Originally posted on: http://geekswithblogs.net/NibblesAndBits/archive/2017/05/11/getting-sql-server-metadata-the-easy-way-using-ssms.aspx

So, you are asked to find out which table uses up the most index space in a database.  Or how many rows are in a give table.  Or any other question about the metadata of the server.  Many people will immediately jump into writing a T-SQL or Powershell script to get this information.  However, SSMS can give you all the information you need about any object on the server.  Enter, OBJECT EXPLORER DETAILS.  Simply go to View –> Object Explorer Details OR hit F7 to open the window.  Click on any level of the Object Explorer tree, and see all of the objects below it.  So, lets answer the first question above…..which table uses the most index space.  We’ll check the AdventureWorks2012 database and see:

Dammit Jim, that doesn’t tell us anything!  Well, hold on Kemosabe, there’s more.  Just like every other Microsoft tool, you can right-click in the column bar of the Object Explorer Details pane, and add the column[s] you want to see.  So, I’ll right-click on the column bar and select the “Index Space Used” column.  The columns can be sorted by clicking on the column name.  So, that makes our job a lot easier:

 


 

image

 


 

And, as we might have guessed, the dreaded SalesOrderDetail table uses the most Index Space.  And, we’ve found that out without writing a single line of code, and we can be sure the results are accurate.  I guess it’s possible that you are never asked about your metadata.  Maybe you’re thinking “That don’t confront me, as long as I get my paycheck next Friday” (George Thorogood reference….I couldn’t help it).  But wait, don’t answer yet……did I mention that the OED window can help us with bulk scripting?  Let’s say we want to make changes to several stored procedures, and we want to script them off before doing so.  We have a choice to make:

  • Right-click on each procedure and choose “Script Stored Procedure As”
  • Right-click on the database, select Tasks –> Generate Scripts, and then use the wizard to whittle down the list of objects to just the stored procedure you want
  • Highlight the stored procedures you want to script in the OED window and right-click, Script Stored Procedure As.

 


 

image

 


 

Yeah, ok that’s all well and good, but there really isn’t much time savings between the 3 options in that scenario.  I’ll concede that point, but consider this; Without using the OED window, there is no way to script non-database objects like Logins, Jobs, Alerts, Extended Events, etc, etc, etc without right-clicking on each individual object and choosing “Script As”.  In the OED, just highlight all the objects you want to script and right-click.  You’re done.  If you have 50 users you need to migrate to a new instance, or you want to move all of your maintenance jobs to a new server, that’s going to save a lot of time.

 

I’ve seen lots of people much smarter than I am go hog-wild writing scripts to answer simply questions like “which table has the most rows”.  Or, where is the log file from that table stored in the file system (you can find that out too).  Or what are the database collations on your server?  I’ve seen them opening multiple windows and cutting and pasting objects onto a new server.  While they were busy coding and filling in wizards, I hit F7 and got the job done in a few seconds.  Work smarter, not harder.  I hope this helps you in some way….thanks for reading.


          Adopt a SQL orphan   

Originally posted on: http://geekswithblogs.net/NibblesAndBits/archive/2017/05/04/adopt-a-sql-orphan.aspx

All DBAs have been asked to copy a database from one SQL instance to another.  Even if the instances are identical, the relationship (SID) between the logins and table users are broken.  Microsoft includes sp_change_users_login to help mitigate this problem, but using the stored procedure must be done database by database, or even user by user, which can take a significant amount of time.  Consider the time it takes to migrate an entire server, or create a secondary instance.

 

Why not automate the process.  Instead of taking hours, the following Powershell script will fix the orphans first, and then drop any table users that do not have a corresponding login.  You’ll be done in seconds instead of hours…..but that will be our little secret.  Winking smile

 


IMPORT-MODULE -name SQLPS -DisableNameChecking

$Server = 'Myserver'  
$ProdServer = new-object ('microsoft.sqlserver.management.smo.server') $server
$ProdLogins = $ProdServer.Logins.name


foreach ($database in $prodserver.Databases)
{
$db = $database.Name.ToString()
$IsSystem = $database.IsSystemObject
$ProdSchemas = $database.Schemas.name

    #######################################
    # Auto-Fix Orphaned user with a login                #
    #######################################
    foreach ($user in $database.users | select name, login | where{$_.name -in $ProdLogins -and $_.login -eq ""}) 
    {
    $sqlcmd = "USE " + $db + " EXEC sp_change_users_login 'Auto_Fix','" + $user.name + "'"
    invoke-sqlcmd -query $sqlcmd -serverinstance $Server
    }

    #######################################
    # Drop table users that have no login                 #
    #######################################
    foreach ($user in $database.users | select name, login | where{$_.name -notin $ProdLogins -and $_.name -notin $ProdSchemas -and $_.login -eq "" -and $db -notin ('SSISDB','ReportServer','ReportServerTempDb') -and $IsSystem -eq $false})
    {
    $sqlcmd = "USE [" + $db + "]
        IF  EXISTS (SELECT * FROM sys.database_principals WHERE name = N'" + $user.name + "')
        DROP USER [" + $user.name + "]
        GO"
    invoke-sqlcmd -query $sqlcmd -serverinstance $Server
    }
}


 

In this example, I’ve excluded system databases and the SSRS and SSIS databases.  You can include/exclude any databases you want.  A version of this script has helped me with numerous server migrations, and continues to be a way to keep production instances in sync.  I’ve also used it to do nightly production refreshes to a development environment without causing problems for the users.  Give it a try, but don’t forget to add some logging (I removed mine in the example to simplify the code.).  So get going….adopt an orphan!


          SQL server AlwaysOn Availability Group data latency issue on secondary replicas and synchronous state monitoring   

Originally posted on: http://geekswithblogs.net/FrostRed/archive/2017/04/30/244536.aspx

This article explains how data synchronization works on SQL Server AlwaysOn Availability Group and some details about how to use sys.dm_hadr_database_replica_states table to check replica states.


I borrowed this daligram from this article which explains data synchronization process on SQL Server AlwaysOn Availability group.



The article has full details about the process. Things are worthing noting here are step 5 and 6.
When a transaction log is received by a secondary replica, it will be cached and then

  • 5. Log is hardened to the disk. Once the log is hardened, an acknowledgement is sent back to the primary replica.

  • 6.Redo process will write the change to the actual database


So for a Synchronous-Commit secondary replica, after step 5, the primary replica will be acknowledged to complete the transaction as “no data loss” has been confirmed on the secondary replica. This means after a transaction is completed, SQL server only guarantees the update has been written to the secondary replica’s transaction logs files rather than the actual data file. So there will be some data latency on the secondary replicas even though they are configured as “ Synchronous-Commit”. This means after you made some changes on the primary replica, if you try to read it immediately from a secondary replica, you might find your changes are there yet.




This is why in our project, we need to monitor the data synchronization states on the secondary replicas. To get the replica states, I use this query:


select  

   r.replica_server_name,

   rs.is_primary_replica IsPrimary,

   rs.last_received_lsn,

   rs.last_hardened_lsn,

   rs.last_redone_lsn,

   rs.end_of_log_lsn,

   rs.last_commit_lsn

from sys.availability_replicas r

inner join sys.dm_hadr_database_replica_states rs on r.replica_id = rs.replica_id


The fields end with “_lsn” are the last Log Sequence Number at different stages.


  • last_received_lsn: the last LSN a secondary replica has received

  • end_of_log_lsn: the last LSN a has been cached

  • last_hardened_lsn: the last LSN a has been hardened to disk

  • last_redone_lsn: the last LSN a has been redone

  • last_commit_lsn: not sure what exactly this one this. But from my test, most of the time, it equals to last_redone_lsn with very rare cases, it is little smaller than last_redone_lsn. So I guess it happens a little bit after redone.




If you run the query on the primary replica, it will returns the information for all replicas


If you run the query on a secondary replica, it will returns the data for itself.



Now we need to understand the format of those LSNs. As this article explained, a LSN is in following format:


  • the VLF (Virtual Log Files) sequence number 0x14 (20 decimal)

  • in the log block starting at offset 0x61 in the VLF (measured in units of 512 bytes)

  • the slot number 1



As the LSN values returned by the query are in decimal, we will have to break them into parts like this:


Now we can compare the LSN values to figure out some information about state of the replica. For example, we can tell how much redo process in behind the logs have been hardened on Replica-2:


last_hardened_lsn - last_redone_lsn = 5137616 - 5137608 = 8.


Note, we don’t need to include the slot number(the last 5 digits) into the calculation. In fact, most of the LSNs in dm_hadr_database_replica_states table do not have slot number. As this document says: they are not actual log sequence numbers (LSNs), rather each of these values reflects a log-block ID padded with zeroes. We can tell this by looking at the last 5 digits of a LSN number. If it always ends with 00001, it means it is not actual LSN.


As from this article we know the block offset in measured in units of 512 bytes, in the example above, the difference between last_hardened_lsn and last_redone_lsn that means there is 8 * 512 = 4096 bytes data is waiting to be written to the data file.


UPDATE: I have just observed that last_redone_lsn could be NULL when there are no replicas acting as primary in the group. It is not always and I don't know under what condition it will NULL. However last_commit_lsn seems always have a value and as I mentioned it has similar value as last_redone_lsn(maybe just slightly behind last_redone_lsn). So  last_commit_lsn might be used when last_redone_lsn is not available. 


This article has much better explanation about how the transaction logs work in Availability group.


          MS Dynamics CRM Adapter now available on Enzo Unified   

Originally posted on: http://geekswithblogs.net/hroggero/archive/2017/04/25/ms-dynamics-crm-adapter-now-available-on-enzo-unified.aspx

I am proud to present our first third party adapter created by Aldo Garcia. With this adapter, you can communicate to Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online directly from SQL Server Management Studio, and from stored procedures/views/functions. You can also programmatically access MS Dynamics CRM records through this adapter using basic HTTP commands and headers, without the need to download/use/install the Dynamics CRM SDK. This provides a simple, light-weight programmatic environment for both SQL and lightweight clients (such as IoT and mobile devices).

Aldo’s adapter allows you to issue simple SQL EXEC or SELECT/INSERT/UPDATE/DELETE commands to manage records in MS Dynamics. For example, this command retrieves all the records found in the account table:

SELECT * FROM DynamicsCRM.RetrieveMultiple@account

And this command does the same thing using an EXEC request:

EXEC DynamicsCRM.RetrieveMultiple ‘account’

The SELECT command supports simple WHERE clauses, TOP N, NULL field filters, and ORDER BY operations.

To view how Aldo is able to read/write MS Dynamics data through simple SQL commands, visit his blog post here.

And to see how to use the MS Dynamics adapter to load data in bulk, please visit this blog post.

          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.

          Elementary-Level PBL   
There are incredible project-based learning examples online, but few are from elementary level and even fewer are from primary grades. To make a very small impact on this lack of examples, I am sharing a collection of projects my sons, Ryan and Spencer, have completed for their classes during their elementary years. For information on more PBL options appealing to elementary-level students, please visit Tech-Based PBL for the Young Learner? Yes!
  • Scorpion Movie: When in first grade, Spencer made this video by using iTunes to record his narration and iPhoto to make a slideshow with Internet-selected pictures. He combined the two within iPhoto.
  • Spencer Toy's Commercial: Spencer and his friend, Spencer, created this commercial for their fourth grade entrepreneurship project. They wrote the script, practiced, and were recorded using a camera with video capabilities.
  • Mixed-Up Book Report and Safety Notebook: Ryan created a book report on the book From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler and a safety brochure for his Cub Scout project while in fourth grade. He used Microsoft Word tri-fold brochure templates for each.
  • Hatchet Report: Using ComicLife, Ryan prepared this fourth grade book report on the book Hatchet.
  • Caravel Mini-Book: In fifth grade, Ryan prepared a mini-book report on caravel ships (those used by Columbus). He used "Make a Booklet" software to enable proper folding, and he created a cover using tea-stained paper sent through a Laserjet printer.
  • Audio Interviews: When in fourth grade, Ryan had to do a book report for a fantasy/science fiction book. He chose The Riddle of the Gnome: A Further Tales Adventure by P.W. Catanese. For the project, he had to write and answer ten interview questions for the main character. Ryan chose to deliver his project in audio format (Listen here). He used Audacity and its voice modification feature to make it sound like there were two individuals in the interview room. Spencer had to replicate this activity when he was in fourth grade. He used the book Flyte by Angie Sage (Listen here).
  • Iroquois Virtual Museum: For his fifth grade project on Native Americans, Ryan chose to study the Iroquois by reading ...If You Lived With The Iroquois. He used PowerPoint templates and techniques from Educational Virtual Museums.
  • Spencers' Toys Marketing Display: Spencer Keeler and Spencer Coombs created this poster during an entrepreneur project in fourth grade. They manufactured and sold cars, trucks, and planes. The display board included a section where they projected a commercial they made using a digital camera.

Objectives
• Students will identify geographic structures of desert regions with specific attention to Grand Canyon.
• Students will identify dangers associated with desert survival.
• Students will prepare cohesive plans for surviving desert climates and physical geographical structures.
Procedure

Day One
Opening
Project a topographical map of Grand Canyon (http://www.jcu.edu/philosophy/gensler/escalante.gif) and, in their journals, have students propose routes for hiking from the rim to the river, justifying their choices, and stating issues they might face when making the trek.
Development
1. Discuss student responses during their review of the topographical map, focusing on the abrupt elevation changes common in Grand Canyon. Next, in lecture format, briefly explain the geography of the region by addressing the history, geology, flora, and fauna of the region while addressing the broader issue of deserts. The following resources may prove helpful:

http://away.com/gifs/states/az/m_gcnpov.gif
http://www.arizona-leisure.com/grand-canyon-history.html
2. Ask students what issues they feel may be important when hiking in Grand Canyon, recording their answers on the board.
3. Place students in groups of six and have each group begin to design a pamphlet that could be given to travelers to Grand Canyon who intend to hike in the park’s region. Specific attention should address dangers of the Canyon and safety recommendations. Groups should choose their design and begin input basic information before the end of class.
**Have students use pre-made pamphlet templates (available in the Project Gallery of Microsoft Word) to save time on design, therefore allowing more time to focus on content.
Closing
Inform students that for homework they will read information about dangers affecting individuals either hiking in deserts or visiting Grand Canyon. They must come prepared with their homework for class tomorrow.
Homework
Distribute copies of the following chapters and book sections to students to read for homework. Provide each student with a different reading to ensure the class completes all readings. Every student in each group of six should have a different reading and both the Desert Survival and Death in Grand Canyon books should be represented in each group. Student must prepare a brief assignment including the following items:
• The name of their reading
• A brief description of what they read
• Five tips for hiking in desert regions or Grand Canyon extrapolated from their reading

The readings include:
1. Desert Solitaire by Edward Abbey—“Water” and “The Heat of Noon: Rock and Tree and Cloud” [Note: The “Water” chapter includes some inappropriate language. Additionally, both chapters require high reading levels and may include adult content.]
2. Desert Survival: Tips, Tricks, and Skills by Tony Nester—Assign each of the following sections, one for each student:
--“Physiology of Humans in the Desert”
--“Desert Hazards”
--“Anatomy of a Survival Situation”
--“The Basic Skills of Survival”
--“Outfitting Your Vehicle”
--“Obtaining Water in Arid Regions”
--“Desert Survival Shelters”
--“Firemaking Skills”
--“Knife Uses and Safety”
--“Signaling for Rescue”
3. Over the Edge: Death in Grand Canyon by Michael Ghiglieri and Thomas Myers—Assign all chapters EXCEPT those on suicide and murder. Assign at least one student to each of the following book sections:
--Chapter One (Falls): Chapter Introduction AND “Falls from the Rim,” “Falls within the Canyon”
--Chapter Two (Environmental Deaths): Entire chapter
--Chapter Three (Flash Floods): Entire chapter
--Chapter Four (Killer Colorado): Chapter Introduction AND “Lethal Errors Made While Running the River,” “River Crossers Who Didn’t,” “Swimmers Who Drowned Elsewhere in the Colorado,” “Swimmers Who Drowned between Phantom and Pipe Creek” AND “Swimmers Who Drown Elsewhere in the Colorado,” “Accidental Swimmers Who Fell in from Shore” AND “Mysterious Disappearances Who Drowned from Camp,” “Lessons of Safety & Survival from the Grand Canyon Colorado”
--Chapter Five (Air): Entire chapter
--Chapter Six (Freak Errors and Accidents): “Rock Falls,” “Venomous Creatures,” “Freak Errors and Accidents”
--Epilogue (Lessons): Entire section

*In larger classes, have multiple students read the same passage, but limit the number of students per passage to ensure an even distribution of readings.
* If there are not enough books for students to take home to complete the readings, copy chapters or chapter sections for each student. In some cases, it is possible to copy two pages on a single side of paper, for a total of four pages per piece of paper. Require students return their reading passages for use with future classes.
Day Two
Opening
As students enter the classroom, have each student choose one tip for hiking in desert regions or Grand Canyon from their homework assignment and write it on the board. [For smaller classes, have each student write two tips on the board.]
Development
1. Have students continue on their pamphlets. Halfway through the class period, have students print out their pamphlets. (They will turn these in for grading after class.)
2. Provide each group with hiking guides from Grand Canyon (see “Materials”) and have them review these to identify hiking and survival tips. Each group will create a T-chart titled “Pamphlet Comparisons.” On the left, they will write “Recommended Improvements for Our Pamphlet” and the right will write “Recommended Improvements to Their Pamphlets.” Student groups will complete the T-chart and turn it in along with their pamphlet.
Closing
Have a brief discussion about what students learned through this two-day unit.
Assessment
1. Provide credit based on student ability to actively collaborate with a group to complete the pamphlet and their ability to collaborate in the whole class group for the project analysis.
2. Grade the quality of student responses on their homework assignment.
3. Grade students on the quality of information included in the pamphlet and their T-charts, taking into account the collaborative nature of the assignments.
Extending the Lesson
• Have students replicate this lesson for a national park in another region and ecosystem of the United States.
• Have students evaluate their group pamphlet and create a new pamphlet on their own. The pamphlet should combine content from the original group-generated pamphlet, class discussions and lecture, and official park documents.

          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."

A NEW HEART

ADEGAN I

Diatas panggung, seorang gadis kelihatan bingung. Berjalan mondar- mandir sambil sesekali terlihat senyum, cemberut, dan bingung sendiri. Ditangannya, dia menggenggam sebuah hati berwarna merah. Dalam hatinya dia berujar:

Hm,… sekarang aku sudah cukup dewasa untuk menentukan pilihan hidupku sendiri. Enak juga ya,…(sambil tersenyum) tapi,.. (sambil memandang sebentuk hati yang ada di tangannya) kepada apa atau kepada siapa akan ku serahkan hati ini supaya aku bahagia (senyum nya hilang, kini wajahnya kelihatan tegang. Dia berpikir keras)
Atau,… jangan – jangan nggak ada lagi hal yang bisa membuat ku bahagia di dunia ini, kalau begini, pasti hidup ini akan terasa membosankan. Untuk apa hidup di dunia yang seperti itu ,… (wajahnya mendadak cemberut)

Ketika dia sedang bingung sendiri, tiba – tiba lewat sepasang suami -  istri yang kaya dan masih muda

Suami  :sayang apa kamu tidak capek berjalan sejauh ini? (sambil merangkul pundak istrinya dengan mesra)
Istri      :ah, ..tidak. malahan aku senang bisa menikmati liburan ini bersama mu (sambil  menggelayut manja di bahu suaminya) biasanya, kamu kan selalu sibuk,…
Suami  :iya, tapi itu semua untuk membahagiakan mu. Aku ingin mencari banyak uang   agar kamu tidak kekurangan apapun.
Istri      :iya,…aku tahu. Senang rasanya punya suami yang baik seperti kamu sayang,…
            (tiba – tiba mata sang nyonya melihat si gadis yang lagi kebingungan)
            “eh, liat dech pa kayaknya gadis itu lagi bingung dan sedih. Kira – kira dia kenapa ya,…?
Suami  :ah mama, hal yang begitu aja di pikirin,…
            (mencoba melanjutkan perjalanan yang sempat terhenti).
Istri      :eh, tunggu dulu pa,.. gak ada salahnya kan kita membantu orang yang lagi   kesusahan.
Suami  :ya udah terserah mama aja,…
            (keduanya menghampiri si gadis yang lagi kebingungan).

Istri      :(sembari menepuk pelan pundak si gadis) hi dek, kamu kelihatan sedih dan bingung. Ada apa? Apa ada yang bisa kami Bantu?.
Gadis   :(kelihatan kaget) ah,…eh,…gak ada apa – apa koq kak, beneran.
Istri      :jangan bohong dek, pasti ada Sesuatu yang membuat kamu bingung. Ayolah jangan sungkan anggap aja aku ini seperti kakak mu sendiri.
Gadis   (dengan nada sedikit ragu) sebenarnya kak, aku lagi bingung mau menyerahkan hati ini pada siapa atau pada apa supaya aku bisa bahagia.
Istri      :oh,… itu soal gampang. Serahkan saja hati mu pada uang. Kamu pasti akan bahagia, iya kan pa?(sembari memandang suaminya).
Suami  :benar. Aku dan istri ku bahagia karena uang. Kami tidak pernah kekurangan dalam hal apapun .
Istri      :iya, kamu lihat sendiri kan aku bisa membeli gaun dan sepatu yang bagus dan mahal, berlian, permata, mobil mewah yang ada di parkiran itu dan banyak hal lain yang tidak bisa di nikmati sebagian orang (dengan nada sdkit angkuh).
Suami  :ya dek, jadi sekarang serahkan saja hatimu pada uang.
Gadis   :apa kakak dan abang yakin kalau uang bisa membuat ku bahagia? (dengan nada ragu).
Istri      :yakin. Bahkan sangat yakin (sambil tersenyum pasti).
Gadis   :(memandang hati yang ada di tangannya dan menyerahkan hatinya dengan ragu) tapi aku pasti akan bahagia kan kak?
Istri      :tenang akja kamu pasti akan bahagia. (membuka dfompet dan menyerahkan segepok uangpada si gadis) nah,… karena kamu sudah menyerahkan hati mu untuk uang, maka mulai sekarang uang akan selalu mengikuti langkah mu. Kamu bisa melakukan apapun dengan uang. Jadi, mulai sekarang kamu harus melakukan segala sesuatu demi uang. Karena itu yang akan menjadi sumber kebahagiaan mu.
Suami  :itu benar dek, kelola uang dengan baik. Lakukan semuanya demi uang, kamu pasti akan bahagia.
(sambil menggamit lengan istrinya hendak beranjak pergi).
Gadis   :(tersenyum senang) makasih ya bang, kak. Kalian berdua emang orang – orang yang baik
            (suami dan istri menjawabnya berbarengan sembari meninggalkan tempat tersebut)


ADEGAN II
Sigadis kelihatan senang sambil menenteng banyak tas yang berisi belanjaan.

Gadis   :enak juga ya jadi orang kaya, pumya banyak uang. Untung aku mengelolanya dengan baik. Kalau tidak belum tentu uang ku sebanyak ini. Uang yang ku miliki bisa membeli apapun yang ku inginkan (sambil tersenyum bangga).

Namun tiba – tiba aja si gadis merasa ada yang mengikutinya. Sesekali dia menoleh ke
Belakang sambilk mempercepat langkahnya. Akhirnya, dia tiba di rumah. Pembantunya,
Yang sedari tadi heran melihat tingkahnya, menepuk palan pundaknya

Pem     :non,…
Gadis   :eh,copot…copot (sambil menarik nafas dalam – dalam) kamu tuch ya surti ngangetin orang aja.
Surti    :maaf non,… habis non aneh gitu. Pulang – pulang mukanya pucat begitu. Gimana surti nggak bingung. Non kenapa?
Gadis   :ah,… aku juga bingung. Akhir – akhir ini aku merasa ada seseorang yang mengikuti aku kemana pun aku pergi.
Surti    :ya udah, non duduk dulu. Tenang kan diri non (lalu tergopoh – gopoh mengambil air minum dan memijiti kaki si gadis)
Gadis   :sur, aku tuch capek dengan semua ini. Secara materi aku emang nggak kekurangan apapun, naun aku tidak memiliki ketenangan batin. Aku nggak bahagia dengan semua ini sur,…
Surti    :kalau non nggak bahagia, kasih aja uangnya sama surti. Surti pasti bahagia. Gitu aja repot, pie toh non,…
            (sambil menyimpan gelas dan nampan ke dapur)
Gadis   :(menggeleng sambil mendesah) sur,..sur,..suatu saat nanti kamu past iakan mengerti.


ADEGAN III

Gadis sedang duduk di beranda rumahnya nketika lewat sepasang suami – istri yang 
Kemarin membantunya.

Istri      :yang lihat, itu kan gadis yang kemarin kita tolong,…
Suami  :benar ma, tapi wajahnya sedih gitu.
Istri      :iya ya,…apa dia nggak bahagia dengan uang itu? Ini pasti karena dia tidak mengelolanya dengan baik. Kesana yuk pa,…
            (keduanya menghampiri si gadis)
istri      :dek, kamu koq masih sedih. Apa kamu gak bahagia hidup dengan uang? Atau karena kamu nggak bisa mengelola uang itu dengan baik?
Gadis   :(menggeleng lemah sambil berdiri) nggak kak. Bukannya aku nggak bisa mengelola uang itu.. hanya saja aku merasa nggak bahagia hidup dengan uang itu.tiap hari aku merasa diikuti seseorang. Apalagi, dengan maraknya berita perampokan akhir – akhir ini, aku merasa nyawaku selalu terancam.
Suami  :dek, itukan masalah gampang. Kamu bisa memanggil satpam , menyewa bodyguard, atau apapun itu untuk ketenangan kamu.
Gadis   :tapi aku nggak bisa, aku bahagia hidup dengan di kelilingi dan diawasi oleh orang – orang yang asing bagi ku.(sambil membuka dompetnya) ini semua uang yang kalian berikan ditambah dengan uang pribadiku. Hitung – hitung sebagai ucapan terimakasih atas kebahagiaan semu yang kalian tawarkan. Aku nggak bahagia dengan seua itu. Sekarang kembalikan hatiku, aku nggak mau menyerahkannya untuk uang. Uang nggak bisa membeli kebahagian batin yang ku harapkan (sambil menyodorkan uang)
Istri      :ih,… cape dech liat kamu. Masih ada ya gadis sebodoh kamu di era globalisasi ini. Di kasih uang nggak mau. Apa sich yang kamu tahu tentang kebahagiaan batin? Nggak usah berfilosofi dech di depan kita.
Suami  (memegang bahu istrinya) udah ma,..kq kamu jadi sewot gitu.
Istri      :(sambil mengeluarkan hati si gadis) nich hati kamu, kembaliin uang ku (mengambil uang dengan kasar dan mengembalikan hati si gadis yang telah sedikit robek). Ayo pa, ntar bodohnya gadis ini nular lagi ama kita.
            (keduanya pun berlalu yang di ikuti oleh tatapan kecewa si gadis. Lama si gadis menatap wajahnya yang sedikit robek lalu dia bergumam,”ah, kelihatannya aku sudah kecewa dengan uang. Hatiku telah di lukai oleh uang”.)

baru saja dia membalikkan badan, dia melihat surti pembantunya sedang sibuk meng
angkat kopornya.

Gadis   :kamu mau kemana sur? (dengan wajah heran).
Surti    :mau pergi (dengan ketus).
Gadis   :jadi kamu pergi ninggalin aku di saat – saat seperti ini?
Surti    :iya, emang napa? Non nggak seneng? (dengan nada lebih ketus)
Gadis   :aku nggak nyangka ya sur, kamu tuch baik dan setia hanya pada saat aku punya banyak uang.
Surti    :ya iyalah, secara kita hidup perlu uang. Aku bersyukur nggak sebidoh kamu non.
            (lalu cepat – cepat berlalu dari hadapan si gadis yang kelihatan makin sedih).

Sementara itu, di sudut lain perampok yang udah lama mengincar gadis kelihatan
Bingung sembari berkata,”kelihatannya gadis itu telah jatuh miskin. Menggaji pembokat
Nya saja dia sudah tidak sanggup. Terpaksa aku harus mencari korban yang lain.
(membuka topeng dan berlalu pergi)

ADEGAN IV

Kali ini si gadis benar – benar sedih. Sambil memandangi hatinya yang sedikit robek

Gadis   :ah, kelihatannya tidak ada hal yang lebih baik dari uang yang bisa membuat ku bahagia.

Ketika si gadis sedang sibuk melamun sendiri, tiba – tiba seorang pengusaha yang ter
Nyata adalah dirut sebuah perusahaan besar.
Bersama sekretarisnya yang sibuk membawa map. Sang pengusaha berhenti sejenak
Sambil ,menelepon rekan bisnis nya di seberang sana. Setelah bertelepon, dia meandang
Sekretarisnya dan berkata:
Dirut                :nan, tolong kamu catat nanti malam pukul 07.00 saya ada meeting dengan partner saya.
Nancy              :baik pak (sambil sibuk menulis) meeting nya dimana ya pak?
Dirut                :di lobby utama grand angkasa. (dirut hendak melangkah pergi namun mengurungkan niatnya manakala melihat si gadis yang lagi bingung. Serta merta dia memberi isyarat kepada sekretarisnya untuk menghampiri si gadis). Dek, kiamu kenapa kq kelihatan bingung?
Gadis               :(sedikit kaget) eh,…bapak. Anu pak,.. eh nggak ada apa – apa koq.
Dirut                :kamu jangan sungkan untuk cerita. Tapi kalau kamu nggak mau cerita juga nggak apa – apa koq (beranjak hendak pergi).
Gadis               :eh,.. tunggu pak. A..anu, sebenarnya saya punya sedikit masalah pribadi pak. Saya lagi bingung mau menyerahkan hati saya pada siapa agar saya bisa bahagia.
Dirut                :oh,…itu masalah kecil. Serahin aja hati kamu untuk pekerjaan. Nanti kalau kamu bekerja sungguh – sungguh, karir kamu akan terus naik dan kamu akan di hargai orang lain. Seperti saya, kamu tahu saya memulai segalanya dari nol. Namun karena saya gigih, maka perusahaan saya saat ini adalah salah satu perusahaan terbesar di negeri ini. Akibatnya, saya disegani dan di hargai banyak orang. Saya merasa sangat puas dan bahagia dan semua itu terjadi karena saya menyerahkan hidup saya untuk pekerjaan dan karir saya.. benar kan nan?
Nancy              :benar pak.
Dirut                :sekarang, serahin aja hati kamu buat pekerjaan. Pasti kamu akan bahagia.
Gadis               :apa bapak yakin saya bisa bahagia jika saya menyerahkan hati saya pada pekerjaan.
Dirut                :tentu. Kamu pasti akan bahagia.
Gadis               :(dengan takut – takut menyerahkan hatinya pada nancy) tapi saya tidak akan kecewa kan dengan keputusan ini?
Nancy              :tidak malahan kamu akan bahagia dengan keputusan ini (sambil mengambil hati si gadis, namun tiba – tiba nancy teringat sesuatu) tapi pak,…apakah gadis ini memiliki keahlian seperti yang dibutuhkan oleh perusahaan kita?
Dirut                :oh ya, keahlian apa yang kamu miliki?
Gadis               :maksud bapak?
Dirut                :maksud saya keahlian untuk lapangan pekerjaan saat ini. Kamu bisa nggak mengetik?
Gadis               :nggak pak.
Dirut                :komputer?
Gadis               :nggak pak.
Dirut                :bahasa inggris atau bahasa asing lainnya?
Gadis               :nggak juga p-ak,…(kali ini dengan wajah bloon)
Dirut                :trus apa yang kamu bisa,… (dengan nada tidak sabar)
Gadis               :oh itu,…(sambil tersenyum bangga) saya bisa masak, nyuci, nyetrika, ngepel, nya…
Dirut                :stop,…stop, dasar gadis kampungan. Kamu sama sekali nggak punya skill di dunia kerja.
Nancy              :(sambil tersenyum mengejek) heran, di era globalisasi ini ada ya gadis kayak kamu. Kasihan ya, pria yang jadi pacar kamu,…kalo Cuma keahlian seperti itu, hanya pekerjaan sebagai CS yang cocok untuk kamu dan itu sudah lebih dari cukup di perusahaan kita (sambil meremas hati gadis dan mambuangnya di hadapan gadis).
Dirut                :mari nan, buang – buang waktu dengan orang seperti ini,…
Nancy              :baik pak (berlalu sambil mencibir kearah gadis)

Setelah keduanya pergi,…
Gadis               :(sambil memungut hatinya yang remuk) ada apa sich dengan mereka? Aku berkata jujur, mereka marah (sambil memperbaiki hatinya yang remuk)
Bahkan pekerjaan sekalipun tidak bisa menerima aku apa adanya (nada suara lemah dan wajah semakin sedih).
Kelihatannya, segala sesuatu yang ada di dunia ini hanya membuatku semakin kecewa (mata mulai berkaca – kaca)

ADEGAN V

Berhari – hari gadisl arut dalam kesedihan yang teramat dalam. Suatu waktu, ketika si gadis sedang melamun tiba – tiba melintas seorang pria  dihadapan si gadis. Melihat si gadis yang lagi sendiri, pria ini tersenyum nakal. Lalu dia pun mulai melancarkan serangan jitunya.

Pria         : menyanyikan sebaris lagu sempurnanyanya andra (sambil mengancungkan  dua jempol kea rah penonton)

Gadis yang awalnya  acuh, demi mendengar nyanyian si pria mulai tertarik dan memandang kea rah sumber suara. Si pria yang menyadari bahwa umpannya mulai berhasil, mendekati si gadis sembari tersenyum manis

Pria      : kamu kenapa dek? Koq sedih gitu?
Gadis   : gak ada apa – apa koq (dengan nada cuek dan memasang wajah cemberut).
Pria      : ayolah dek, cerita ke abang. Kali aja abang bisa Bantu kamu.

Awalnya, gadis enggan karena dia telah sangat kecewa dengan semua yang di alaminya. Namun, karena terus – menerus di desak si pria dengan rayuannya yang manis akhirnya si gadis luluh juga.

Gadis   : hmpfh,…sebenarnya aku lagi sedih n bingung. Sedih, karena aku ngerasa nggak ada lagi hal apapun di dunia ini yang bisa ,membuatku bahagia. Bingung, karena aku nggak tahu ;lagi mau menyerahkan hati ini pada apa atau pada siapa agar aku bahagia.
Pria      : (sambil tersenyum lembut dan licik) oh,…memang masalah seperti itu sering membuat kita di lema dan bingung. Abang juga dulu seperti itu. Sampai akhirnya abang sadar bahwa dalam menjalani hidup kita harus punya prinsip dan nggak boleh hidup dalam keadaan bimbang.(sambil menatap mata si gadis dengan lembut. Wajah si gadis merona di tatap seperti itu oleh pria bijaksana yang ada di sampingnya. Pria melanjutkan omongannya dengan lebih PD krn tahu wanita yang di sampingnya mulai termakan rayuannya).
            Tapi abang yakin, kalo adek pasti lebih bijaksana dari abang. Itu terpancar dari mata adek. Kecerdasan yang tidak di miliki oleh setiap wanita.
Gadis   :ah, abang ada- ada aja (makin tersipu). Buktinya sekarang aku lagi bingung. Hm,… apa abang punya solusi untuk mengatasi masalah yang sedang ku hadapi.
Pria      : oh ya,..ada sich. Tapi abang segan mengatakannya pada adek. Apalagi kita baru ketemu rasanya kurang afdol bila abang ikut campur masalah adek..
Gadis   :ah, nggak apa – apa koq bang. Nggak usah sungkan. Kalo abng bisa Bantu aku kenapa nggak.
Pria      : bener nich, daek nggak bakalan marah?
Gadis   : nggak aku janji.
Pria      :ya, udah…(berhenti sejenak). Jadi gini dek, menurut abang lebih baik kamu serahin aja hati kamu sama abang. Abang janji akan ngebahagiain kamu
            (si gadis mendelik menatap pria yang di sampingnya).
Ya dek,.. di tatap gitu abang takut ne. tadi udah janji nggak bakalan marah.
Gadis      : bang, please,… aku udah cukup kecewa dengan semua yang aku alami.ku  mohon abang jangan ikut – ikuta me
          akhir dari sebuah cerita cinta   

 Akhir dari sebuah cerita cinta

‘Deb, ntar malam kita nonton bareng mau gak?”,
“Aduh gimana ya,…..mama aku pasti gak ngijinin dech”,
“Ya ampun sayang, kamu cari alasanlah…mau ibadah, mau ngerjain tugas atau apa. Masak gitu aja gak  bisa”,…
“ya udah, ntar aku hubungi kamu lagi gimana jadinya.
           
            Tuut…tuut…tuut… sambungan telepon pun terputus.

Dengan hati galau, debby meletakkan gagang teleponnya. Menarik nafas
 dalam – dalam, kemudian menghempaskan tubuhnya yang ramping diatas tempat tidurnya. Sembari menatap langit – langit kamarnya, dia menerawang jauh dan tiba – tiba  aja terlintas di benaknya ucapan ibunya tempoh hari.

“Debby sayang, mama gak pernah melarang kamu berpacaran. Tapi kamu harus tahu juga dong memilah – milah cowok mana yang pantas buat kamu,” hening sejenak kemudian ibunya melanjutkan pula
‘mama sich tahu, harry itu ganteng, tajir, dan pintar. Tapi perbedaan usia diantara kalian kan amat jauh. Masak kamu yang seorang sarjana muda hendak berpacaran dengan siswa SMA, itu mustahil namanya. Menurut mama, kalian berdua itu sungguh pasangan yang tidak seimbang,..”
“Tapi ma, Debby sangat mencintai Harry,….
”Debby, mama mohon untuk hal yang satu ini kamu jangan membantah mama. Tidakkah kau merasa kasihan pada mama mu yang janda ini,.. ?”
 Air mata Debby mengalir mendengar ucapan ibunya kala itu.………

Tok……….Tok………….Tok
Terdengar ketukan di pintu kamar Debby
Dengan sigap Debby meraih bukunya dan pura-pura sibuk belajar
”masuk ngak dikunci kok,”
daun pintu terkuak, dan ibu Debby muncul di depan pintu. “eh.. mama, Debby kirain Anggita, Ada apa ma?”
‘gak, cuma mau bilang ntar malam mama ada acara jadi pulangnya agak telat. Oh, iya kamu kerja gak hari ini?”
“gak ma ini kan hari libur,..oh iya ma, ntar malam debby juga mau keluar lho ada ibadah pemuda di gereja. Boleh ya ma?” Tanya debby penuh harap.
“boleh asal setelah ibadah kamu langsung pulang, kasihan Anggita sendirian.
dan satu hal lagi kamu gak boleh pergi bareng harry”, tambah ibunya dengan nada tinggi.
Dug,….jantung debby tersentak mendengar kalimat ibunya barusan.
“pastinya ma”, jawab debby dengan suara lirih.
                                                            ***
            sejak hari itu debby makin rajin membohongi ibunya. Kerap kali ia pamit pada ibunya untuk hal- hal yang berkaitan dengan kegiatan – kegiatan di gereja. Namun kenyataanya setiap waktu yang ada selalu di manfaatkannya untuk keluar bersama harry. Ibunya tidak pernah tahu hal ini, apalagi anggita.
“anak itu kan suka ngadu”, pikir debby suatu hari.

            Sama seperti hari – hari sebelumnya, hari ini debby kelihatan ceria. Karena harry mengajaknya lunch bareng di restoran favorit mereka berdua.
“deb, aku tuch sayang banget ama kamu”, kata harry memulai pembicaraan sambil menatap mata debby dalam – dalam.
Ukh,… jantung debby seolah berhenti berdetak di tatap seperti itu oleh pria yang amat di cintainya.
“aku juga sayang sama kamu har, tapi akhir – akhir ini aku sedikit risih dengan tatapan orang – orang di gereja kita. Mereka semua kan nggak setuju ama hubungan kita, terlebih mama aku”. Jawab debby lirih.
“sayang,… kamu jangan  peduliin apa tanggapan orang lain tentang hubungan kita. Toch yang menjalani hubungan ini kan kita berdua”.
Sembari meraih jemari debby, harry kemudian menambahkan “, kalau mengenai tante , aku yakin suatu saat nanti dia pasti akan merestui hubungan kita. Asalkan kita bisa membuktikan kesungguhan cinta kita, percaya dech sama aku”.
“iya har, aku percaya. Tapi sampai kapan hubungan kita dalam ketidakpastian seperti ini?, apalagi…kamu masih SMA,..”
“ “sayang, kamu jangan berpikiran macam – macam gitu dong. Justru malam ini aku mau ngajak kamu dinner bareng, karena aku pengen bikin surprise buat kamu”, jawab harry dengan senyum penuh arti.
“hah,… surprise? Surprise apaan?”,
“makanya, kita makan dulu. Ntar baru ku jelasin ke kamu…

Tiada terasa sembilan bulan sudah usia pacaran  Debby dan Hary. Tepat pada malam sebelumnya Hary mengajak debby bertunangan.
 Mesti pertunangannya amat sederhana namun begitu bermakna dihati debby. Sambil tersenyum – senyum dia teringat bagaimana Hary melamarnya kala itu. Sehabis Dinner  di kafe yang cukup elit, Harry mengajaknya ketaman kota. Disebuah kursi bambu disudut taman kota sepasang kekasih itu mengikat janji saling setia. Dengan sikap layaknya seorang pangeran, Harry berlutut dihadapan Debby. Sembari mengangsurkan sebentuk cincin emas dihadapan debby harry berujar
“sayang, maukah kau berjanji untuk tetap setia pada cinta kita dan menjadi tunanganku mulai detik ini?”
Hening sejenak,…
Debby merasakan sekujur tubuhnya terasa dingin. Baginya, tiada saat yang lebih mencekam seumur hidupnya  selain daripada saat itu
waktu seolah berhenti untuk mendengar jawaban yang keluar dari bibir debby.
Entah mengapa tiba – tiba aja wajah ibunya terlintas di benaknya. Dia sangat tidak ingin manyakiti hati wanita yang telah membesarkannya itu. Namun ketika matanya kembali menatap mata Harry dan melihat seberkas ketulusan di mata itu, tiba – tiba aja rasa iba menyeruak di dalam hatinya. Debby tak kuasa menahan hasrat hatinya. Akhirnya, dengan terbata – terbata debby berkata “i...i..ya har, aku janji”,...aku akan setia pada cinta kita.
“hah,... beneran deb?” sorak harry dengan nada tidak percaya
Debby mengangguk lemah.    

Dengan sangat lembut, Harry meraih jemari debby dan menyematkan cincin di jari manisnya. Demikian pula debby  menyematkan cincin  di jari harry. Hati sepasang sejoli itu begitu bahagia malam itu. Mata debby kelihatan berkaca – kaca. Dengan mesra  harry merangkul debby sembari berbisik lembut di telinga nya “,deb, bulan, bintang, bahkan segenap alam raya menyaksikannya mulai malam ini cinta kita tidak akan terpisahkan”,….

Daarrr,..
Tiba – tiba aja lamunan debby buyar manakala seseorang menepuk bahunya, “hey, pagi – pagi udah ngelamun. Hayoo, lagi ngelamunin apa…?”
“ya ampun,…anggi ngagetin orang aja. Ketuk pintu dulu donk, masuk kamar orang seenaknya!” jawab debby dengan nada tinggi.
“ya elah,… dari tadi udah di ketok – ketok kamunya gak dengar- dengar trus aku masuk kamu malah ngelamun dan cengar – cengir di depan cermin. Atau,…
 jangan – jangn kamu lagi naksir ne sama seseorang, kasih tahu dong,”… rengek anggi
“nggak  kale… kamu jangan asal nuduh. Ya udah, to the point aja ada keperluan apa kamu masuk ke kamar aku? Mau pinjam majalah aku?” jawab debby dengan nada galak
“idih galak banget sich. Aku tuch kemari Cuma mau bilang kalo siang ini mau keluar. Ada acara bareng teman – teman. Ntar gak permisi sama kamu di marahi tante lagi. Ya udah aku cabut dulu ya”,…
“ya, hati – hati di jalan,” jawab debby sekenanya.

“yess,!!! Anggi gak di rumah, mama gak di rumah, boleh donk kencan ama harry,” sorak debby dalam hati.

                                                            ***

tiga bulan sejak pertunangan “rahasia” mereka, debby dan harry makin dekat seolah tidak terpisahkan. Bahkan beberapa orang yang tidak senang dengan kedekatan mereka mengatakan bahwa debby dan harry ibarat daki dan keringat (tragis ya!). dimana ada debby disitu ada harry, dimana ada harry disitu juga ada debby. Bahkan sedemikian dekatnya, sampai – sampai harry sudah tidak
segan – segan lagi main ke rumah tentunya jika mama dan sepupunya debby sedang tidak di rumah.

            Alhasil hubungan debby dan harry akhirnya tercium juga oleh ibunya harry yang memang sejak awal tidak merestui hubungan cinta mereka. Dengan marah nyonya ester, mamanya harry mendatangi pendeta dan meminta beliau untuk menegur debby selaku ketua pemuda di gereja itu. ..
Akhirnya, hari yang naas bagi nasib cinta debby dan harry pun tiba. Pendeta mengambil kebijakan untuk membicarakan masalah mereka berdua.
Di hadapan pendeta dan beberapa pengurus gereja, keduanya dipaksa untuk tidak menjalin kisah asmara lagi. Bagai disambar petir di siang bolong debby ketika mendengar keputusan tersebut. Air mata tak kuasa dibendungnya ketika terucap janji dari bibir pria yang amat dikasihinya itu.
“saya Harry watania, berjanji dihadapan Tuhan dan dihadapan saudara akan memutuskan debby sebagai kekasih saya,….”
Kalimat itu begitu jelas dan lancar mengalir seolah tiada beban di hati si pemilik suara itu.
Ingin rasanya debby menjerit dan  memberitahu semua orang apa yang sebenarnya telah terjadi diantara mereka. Namun debby tidak sanggup . debby mengerti jika ibunya tahu hal itu , ibunya akan sangat malu. Bahkan, bukan tidak  mungkin ibunya akan dikucilkan dari pergaulan di lingkungan gereja. Dan… debby sungguh tidak sanggup menerima hal itu.
Dia sangat mencintai ibunya,…meski tidak sebesar cintanya pada pria yang kini mengkhianatinya….
Sakit memang….

                                                ***

            dengan tubuh limbung, debby tiba di rumah. Anggita, sang sepupu sedang asyik tidur – tiduran sambil membaca macalah kesukaannya. Tanpa  sepatah kata pun, debby langsung merebahkan diri disamping tubuh anggita. Melihat tingkah sepupunya yang aneh dan matanya yang sembab, anggita heran dan tidak dapat menahan diri untuk tidak bertanya.
“kamu kenapa deb, koq aneh gitu. Lagian mata kamu tuch sembab. Kamu habis nangis yach?”
“gak ada apa – apa koq gi. Semua fine aja koq”, jawab debby lirih
“gak…gak ,…gak mungkin. Kamu pasti lagi ada masalah. Ayo donk cerita ke aku, kali aja aku bisa Bantu. Biar gini – gini aku kan sepupu mu juga, kandung lagi.”
Mendengar ucapan anggi, Debby tersenyum pahit. “kenapa gak dari dulu kamu kayak gini ke aku gi”, rutuknya dalam hati.
“beneran gi, gak ada apa – apa ,…”
namun anggi terus saja mendesak debby. Akhirnya debby tak sanggup lagi menyimpan rahasia hatinya. Air mata pun mengalir deras di pipinya.

‘aku,…u…u..udah putus sama harry gi…” ucap debby terbata – bata
“harry?”, harry yang kakak kelas aku? Anaknya bu ester?”,…
“iya gi”, jawab debby lemah
mendengar penuturan debby barusan, hati anggi bagai di sayat sembilu. Wajahnya mendadak pucat pias. Namun debby yang sedang sekarat tidak memperhatikan perubahan wajah sepupunya itu. Dengan sekuat tenaga, anggi menahan perasaan yang bergolak dihatinya saat itu.

“ya ampun,… jadi emang bener kamu pacaran sama harry?” Tanya anggi
“iya gi,….a..a..ku gak sanggup buat ngelupain harry. Dia a..a.mat berarti bagi ku. Pa…pa..dahal aku tahu di..dia hanya se..seorang bocah yang sok ro..romantis di hadapanku. A…ku bener – bener butuh teman gi. Se..se.lama ini mama se..lalu sibuk de..dengan bisnisnya. Kamu sibuk de…dengan sekolah mu. Ha..hanya ha..harry yang selalu me..me..menemani hari – hari ku gi. Aku gak ber..berdaya buat ngelupain dia,..”
“non, berpikirlah yang realistis. Emang gak ada cowok lain selain harry. Wajah kamu tuch cantik lagi. Gampang banget buat kamu untuk ngedapetin cowok yang lebih dari harry. Please,…kamu jangan sedih lagi,…” hibur anggi.
“aku tahu nggi, tapi masalahnya….masalahnya,….”
“masalahnya apa deb?”
“masalahnya,…kamu gak bakalan ngerti gi,….ka..ka..kamu gak bakalan ngerti..,”
“ya ampun deb, kamu ceritain aja…aku janji bakalan ngerti perasaan kamu,..”
“ini gak sesederhana yang kamu pikirkan gi,…aku udah ,…a..ku ..udah ML sama harry, puas kamu gi,…huk,…huk…,” tangis debby kembali pecah.
Mendengar penuturan debby barusan, tubuh anggi serasa limbung. Namun dia berusaha untuk kelihatan tegar dihadapan debby.
“udah deb, kamu tenang dulu,…”
“gak gi,….aku udah gak punya masa depan lagi. Se..semua udah aku serahin ke Harry, yang aku se..salin,.harry sedikit pun ga ,be…berusaha..un..tuk mem..per..juangkan..ci…cinta..ka..mi ,..aku..nyesal…gi,..aku udah gak penting lagi untuk hidup gi,…”
“gak, itu gak bener deb. Kamu masih punya masa depan. Masih banyak orang yang membutuhkan kamu. Salah satunya, ya aku ini”. Hibur anggi
“ta..tapi gi, gak bakalan ada lagi pria yang ma..mau jadi suami a..ku,..”
“kata siapa deb,…” sembari merangkul debby, anggi kemudian menambahkan “aku yakin suatu saat nanti kamu bakalan bisa menemukan pria yang benar – benar mencintai kamu apa adanya,……”
kata anggi berusaha menenangkan debby meski dia gak yakin sepenuhnya dengan kebenaran kata – katanya.
“la,..la..lagian aku gak tahu gi..ma.na nyeritainnya ke ma..ma. aku pa..pasti udah bikin mama kecewa,..aku memang anak du..dur..haka gi,..,” isak debby
“udah deb, kamu tenang aja. Semuanya pasti baik – baik aja,”
“gi, kamu mau gak janji kalau kamu gak bakalan certain ini ke mama walau apapun yang terjadi?” Tanya debby penuh harap
“iya deb, aku janji,”jawab anggi setengah yakin.
                                               
                                                            ***

           

Malam itu, disebuah kafe ditengah kota terlihat sepasang remaja sedang duduk berdua di salah kursi di pojok ruangan. Kelihatannya ada hal yang amat penting yang sedang mereka perbincangkan. Jika dilihat lebih seksama, maka nyatalah bahwa sepasang remaja itu tak lain adalah Anggi dan Harry.

‘Har, aku bener – bener gak nyangka kamu tuch tega ya,..”
‘sayang,..aku kan udah jelasin semuanya ke kamu. Semua terjadi benar – benar di luar kendali aku. Aku emang sangat mencintai Debby, tapi itu dulu sebelum ketemu kamu. Finally, kamu hadir dalam hidup aku, kamu ngegemesin. Aku teramat bahagia waktu kamu mau menerima aku jadi pacar kamu. Tapi kamu terlalu dingin Gi. Aku tuch ngerasa kesepian, tiap hari kamu sibuk dengan kegiatan ekskul kamu tanpa pernah peduli perasaan aku,…hhh,..lagian…,”
“alasan!, kenapa selama ini kamu gak jujur aja sama aku. Trus,..trus kenapa harus sepupu aku yang kamu jadiin korban, pake acara ML lagi, kenapa Har! Kenapa kamu tega nyakitin aku dengan cara kayak gini,…,” ratap anggi
“gi, please jangan nangis gitu, malu diliatin orang – orang,…”
“biarin, biarin aja semua orang tahu kalau kamu tuch cowok yang gak punya moral. Aku benci sama kamu har!,” jerit anggi yang diikuti oleh tatapan aneh dari semua pengunjung kafe.
“gi, ini gak seperti yang kamu bayangkan. Bukan aku yang memulainya gi, tapi debby. Percaya sama aku gi,…”
mendengar ucapan harry barusan, darah anggi serasa mendidih. Refleks, sebuah tamparan milik anggi mendarat di pipi harry.
“oh, jadi sekarang mau nyalahin sepupu aku, dasar cowok brengsek. Aku gak mau lagi liat muka kamu!” dengan segenap kemarahan yang memuncak anggi bangkit berdiri lalu dengan serta merta menyiramkan sebotol softdrink ke wajah harry seraya berujar “ rasain nich cowok brengsek, dasar gak punya moral !”
lalu anggi beranjak meninggalkan harry yang sibuk mengusap – usap pipinya yang terasa sakit dan acuh tak acuh dengan ucapan anggi barusan. Dengan wajah tidak bersalah, harry melangkah menuju meja kasir sebelum akhirnya beranjak meninggalkan tempat tersebut.

           
            Sudah seminggu ini kesedihan menyelimuti rumah yang terletak di jalan melur no. 150 E itu. Pemilik rumah yang tidak lain adalah Ny. Marti, ibunya debby kelihatan amat terpukul dengan tragedi yang menimpa salah satu anggota keluarganya. Ini berawal dari penemuan polisi di sebuah kursi bambu di sudut taman kota. Disana terbujur kaku sesosok mayat wanita yang diduga meninggal akibat bunuh diri dengan cara memotong urat nadinya. Hal ini terlihat jelas dari darah yang mengalir di pergelangan tangan wanita tersebut.
            Setelah di usut, ternyata wanita tersebut tak lain adalah Debby, putri sulung Ny. Marti. Seluruh anggota keluarga begitu terpukul menerima kenyataan tersebut. Bahkan Ny. Marti beberapa kali tak sadarkan diri karena tidak sanggup menerima kematian putri bungsunya. Apalagi pada saat kematiannya, Ny. Marti sedang berada di luar kota. Dia mendengar kabar tersebut dari sms singkat yang di kirim oleh anggita. Rasa bersalah semakin menggerogoti jiwanya manakala di sadarinya kalau dia begitu melalaikan debby hingga pada saat ajal menjemput debby, dia tidak berada di sisinya.
Sementara itu,…
Dikamarnya, anggita kelihatan termenung. Sesekali air mata bergulir di pipinya. Dia merasa amat kehilangan debby. Baru sebentar keakraban yang di jalinnya, debby udah pergi meninggalkannya ke negeri yang amat jauh untuk di seberangi. Anggi semakin merasa bersalah apabila mengingat pengakuan Harry di kafe tempo hari. Anggi merasa dirinyalah sumber petaka yang menyebabkan kepergian sepupunya. Hubungannya dengan harry adalah sebuah rahasia yang tidak pernah di ketahui debby hingga akhir hayatnya. Hanya satu hal yang di tinggalkan debby di buku hariannya sehari sebelum kematiannya. Sebuah tulisan yang mengungkapkan isi hatinya,
Begini bunyinya,…

Dear diary,…
Mungkin ini akan jadi goresan terakhir tentang hidup ku dalam lembaran manis mu. Aku udah nggak sanggup lagi untuk  menjalani kisah ini. Aku tahu ini semua salah ku. Karena aku terlalu mencintainya sehingga cinta kepada nya lebih besar daripada cinta ku kepada-NYA. Ingin aku bersujud di antara langit dan bumi untuk memohon ampunan NYA atas kesalahan ku yang satu ini. Namun aku tidak begitu yakin apakah pintu itu masih terbuka untukku.

Di, hanya satu hal yang ku pinta pada mu. Besok  kala mentari muncul di pagi hari dan kau menghirup udara baru pada lembaran kisah mu, ku mohon jangan beritahukan pada mama semua kisah tentang cinta yang telah ku torehkan pada mu. Bahkan, sekalipun jika raga ku sudah turun ke dunia orang mati. Karena ku tahu kala sang surya menyinari bumi,aku sudah tidak akan berada di sini lagi. Mungkin aku sudah pergi melayang di tengah kebisuan untuk beristirahat dari segala kejenuhan yang ku alami akibat ejekan dan caci maki teman – teman dan orang – orang yang selama ini dekat denganku dan akibat kekecewaan ku atas nama cinta.

Di, jika kau bertanya dimana tempat peristirahatan yang akan ku pilih di akhir hidupku,.. hm..sulit untuk mengatakannya. Namun sebagai hadiah atas pengabdianmu selama ini, aku akan memberitahukannya.. aku akan merasa amat tenang bila dapat beristirahat di kursi bambu di sudut taman kota. Dimana bulan, bintang, dan segenap jagad raya menjadi saksi atas pengkhianatan cinta. Tempat dimana pertama kali aku merasakan kebahagiaan yang teramat sangat sama seperti kebahagiaan yang ku alami hari ini, kau tahu kenapa?
Ya, karena aku telah mengorbankan diri ku untuk cinta
Hanya untuk cinta,…
Anggi memeluk erat buku harian itu di tangannya. Dengan lirih ia bergumam, “deb, aku gak pernah nyangka nasib cinta mu bakal berakhir seperti ini. Kini ada dua rahasia besar yang harus ku pikul akibat kepergian mu. Rahasia cinta ku dengan harry dan rahasia kepergian mu pada tante. Bantu aku deb,….”

            Kursi bambu di sudut taman kota, kini menjadi saksi bisu bagi sebuah kisah cinta Yang telah usang, bahkan teramat usang


cerita diatas adalah cerpen yang aq buat pas semester I.  sebagian isi cerita ne diinspirasi oleh kisah nyata seorang teman, so i hope you enjoy it and make it as an experience of life.

Linux Mint安装

Linux mint安装,这里推荐使用U盘安装的方式,首先去mint官网下载iso镜像,下载地址在:https://www.linuxmint.com/download.php

这里有几个版本,分别是CinnamonMATEXfce,他们之间的区别在于采用的图形化界面不同,一般来说,Cinnamon比较酷炫,非常适合现代电脑,差不多相当于是win7的桌面,MATE稍微朴实一点,差不多就是xp,Xfce则比较简洁,差不多像是win2000的感觉。相对应的,它们的图形界面消耗的系统资源也依次递减,但是我们的电脑硬件基本上都能满足Cinnamon对硬件的需求,所以这里推荐选择Cinnamon

32位或者64位的选择基于你的CPU,如果你的电脑支持64位一定要选择64位的系统,基本上2010年之后的电脑差不多都支持64位的。

插好U盘,用UltraISO打开iso镜像文件,点击工具栏的“启动”->“写入硬盘映像”,





确认硬盘驱动器一栏里是你的U盘后直接点击“确定”即可。

接下来,我们要在硬盘上分出一部分空间给Linux使用,这里我们可以用分区助手之类的软件,把你的其中一个分区的空间调小一点,空出来的部分50G以上就基本够用了,具体方法可以参考下面的方法:


把电脑启动方式改为U盘启动,插入刚才制作的U盘。然后启动电脑。

稍等之后进入Live 环境,点击桌面的install linux mint 开始安装

选择最后一项,实现多系统共存


在你需要的分区格式化

键盘布局

用户信息

开始安装


过程需要联网下载语言包,此项需要网络支持,但是这里不建议现在更新,因为默认的软件源对于国内网络来说速度比较慢,我们完全可以在安装完成更换软件源之后再回过头来进行更新。

安装完重启

grub2 完美引导三系统

至此,安装结束。

==================================================
小小吐槽一下:刚才写了快一个小时的文章因为我还是不太习惯新编辑器点了“切换到旧版”居然全部都没了。新浪博客作为一个知名博客网站居然没有自动保存功能么,我真的该考虑在别的地方写博客了。
==================================================
Linux严格意义上指的是Linux内核,内核并不能直接使用,必须配合上各种软件工具才行。所谓发行版,就是事先集成了各种不同的软件工具打包发布的Linux操作系统套件。他们面向的用户或者说是侧重点各不相同,有的主要针对桌面用户,有的针对服务器市场,有的针对便携式U盘系统。distrowatch.com 是一个专业介绍各种Linux发行版的网站,它上面有个非常有意思的板块是各种发行版根据点击量的排名,下面就是2016年8月13日这份榜单的截图:

我们可以看到,Mint以绝对优势排名第一,排名第二的Debian比他少了整整一千多的点击。另外,CentOS和Debian常见于服务器系统,也就是说普通用户心目中Mint是绝对的第一位,至于国内知名度非常高的Ubuntu排名第三。后面的文章我会重点介绍Mint和我们国产的deepin,他们一个是全世界最流行的面向普通桌面用户的发型版,一个是最符合国人使用习惯的发型版。

刚才在网上搜索信息的时候看到一篇2015年Linux榜单前十位的介绍,原文链接在此:http://www.codeceo.com/article/2015-10-linux-distributions.html,转载如下:

10 Top Linux Distributions of 2015

首先,让我们来看看下面的对比表,表中列出了2015年和2014年排名前10位的Linux发行版的情况:

POSITION 2015 2014
1 Linux Mint Linux Mint
2 Debian Ubuntu
3 Ubuntu Debian
4 openSUSE openSUSE
5 Fedora Fedora
6 Mageia Mageia
7 Manjaro Arch
8 CentOS Elementary
9 Arch CentOS
10 Elementary Zorin

正如你所看到的,这一年并没有发生太多或太显著的变化。下面就让我们从后往前地来看看最受欢迎的10个Linux发行版,数据截止时间为2015年12月9日。

10.Elementary OS

其开发人员标榜Elementary OS是“Windows和OS X快速又开放的替代品”,这款漂亮精致基于Ubuntu LTS的桌面Linux发行版,第一版发行于2011年,目前发行的是第三个稳定版本(代号“Freya”)。

由于Elementary OS是基于Ubuntu的,所以它完全兼容代码仓库和软件包。然而,它自己的应用程序管理器,在撰写本文的时候还在开发中。就我个人而言,这是我曾见过的最美观的桌面发行版。

9. Arch Linux

也许Arch最主要的特点之一就是,它是一个独立的开放源代码的发行版(这意味着它不基于任何其他的东西),并且受到了成千上万的Linux用户的喜爱。

由于Arch遵循滚动发布模式,因此你只要使用pacman执行定期的系统更新,就可以获得最新的软件。

传统上来说,不建议新用户使用Arch,主要是因为安装进程不会为你做任何的决定,所以你最好能对Linux相关的概念有一定程度的了解,以便成功的安装软件。

还有一些其他的基于Arch的发行版,如Apricity,Manjaro,Antergos等,更适合那些想要无障碍尝试Arch衍生产品的新手。

8. CentOS

虽然社区企业操作系统(Community ENTerprise Operating System)是Linux服务器最有名最常用的发行版,但是它的桌面版本还在继续不断完善中。

另外,它的稳健性、稳定性、和100%二进制兼容性,也使之成为了Red Hat Enterprise Linux的头号劲敌——特别是对云VPS供应商——也许这就是发行版持续增长的主要原因之一。

7. Manjaro

基于Arch Linux的Manjaro,目标在于利用让Arch广泛发行的功能的优势,同时提供一个更舒适的安装和运行体验,无论是新手还是有经验的Linux用户,都可以开箱即用。

Manjaro预装了桌面环境,图形应用程序(包括软件中心)和用于播放音频和视频的多媒体解码器。

6. Mageia

始于2010年,作为现在已经消失的Mandriva Linux的衍生品,受非盈利性组织支持的Mageia自那时起,成为了台式机和服务器著名的、安全的、稳定的Linux发行版。

Mageia最有趣的功能之一就是,它的全安装DVD允许你在在多种桌面环境中选择,而不是强加一个给你。

截至今日,Mageia新版本每9个月发布,可支持未来一年半的时间。

5. Fedora

基于Fedora Project(Red Hat支持),世界性社区范围的志愿者和开发人员的构建和维护,Fedora之所以能够持续几年成为使用最广泛的发行版之一,是因为它有三个主要的可用版本(Workstation (用于台式机) ,Server edition和Cloud image),以及ARM版本用于基于ARM(通常为headless)的服务器。

不过,也许Fedora最显着的特点是,它总是在领衔整合新的软件包版本和技术到发行版中。此外, Red Hat Enterprise Linux和CentOS的新版本基于Fedora。

4. openSUSE

既可作为一个滚动发布,又可当作是一个独立的定期发布版本,openSUSE根据其开发人员的不同,是系统管理员、开发人员和桌面用户Linux发行版的选择,无论你的经验水平处于哪种级别(受到初学者和极客们的一致好评)。最重要的是,著名又屡获殊荣的SUSE Linux Enterprise产品基于openSUSE。

3. Ubuntu

也许这一发行版并不需要任何介绍。 Canonical,Ubuntu背后的公司,一直致力于使Ubuntu成为一个流行和普遍的发行版,并且现在你可在智能手机、平板电脑、个人电脑、服务器和云VPS的上面看到Ubuntu的身影。

此外,Ubuntu基于Debian,并且是一款非常受新用户欢迎的发行版——这可能就是Ubuntu在一段时间内持续增长的原因。虽然没有考虑到这个排名,但Ubuntu是其他Canonical系列发行版,如Kubuntu、Xubuntu、Lubuntu的基础。

最重要的是,安装映像包含Try Ubuntu功能,可以让你在硬盘真正安装之前尝试Ubuntu。现在只有为数不多的几个重要的发行版提供类似这样的功能。

2. Debian

作为一个坚如磐石的Linux发行版,Debian每2年发布新的稳定版本,并且你放心,每个版本都已经过彻底的测试。

在写这篇文章的时候,Debian代码仓库中当前的稳定版本(代号Jessie)总共包含43500个包,这使得它成为了最完整的Linux发行版之一。

虽然它主要用于服务器上,但现在它的桌面版本已经在功能和外观上得到了明显的改善。

1. Linux Mint

Linux Mint的著名口号(“From freedom came elegance”),不只是说说而已。基于Ubuntu的Linux Mint,是一个稳定、功能强大、完整、易于使用的Linux发行版——我们还有很多很多的褒义词可以用来形容Mint。

Mint最显著的特点之一是,在安装过程中你被允许从一个列表中选择桌面环境,并且你可以放心,一旦它安装完了之后,你还能播放音乐和视频文件,而无需任何额外的配置步骤,因为标准安装提供了多媒体解码器的开箱即用。

          What is the goal?   
I often sit in customer meetings thinking to myself, "why are they doing this?". I do this not because I think of myself as so much more enlightened than them, but because I want to understand the motivations for the task(s) at hand. Often times attractive slide decks are placed together to convey such points but they often miss the human factor and are solely focused on some bottom line financial component. What I have uncovered being in the consulting world for the last two years though is that the "why" question is such an iceberg. If you had 8 people in the room, there would be 16 different answers, but the important thing is that more than 1/2 of them would be personal.

I have seen some great consultants in my time in this industry. The good ones know how to get to this and how to pull out all 16 answers. They ask questions such as "how do we make you, specifically, successful". They understand that there are motivations that go way beyond the corporate strategy presentation with every group. They also understand that technology, project and solution success is at risk because of these motivations. I think one of the saddest realizations I had in my recent job was that I got to really see that a particular technologies success or failure really had little to do with how good the technology was. Now granted if the technology was horrid then it failed. However, if selection was clearly better than another it had no bearing if that lesser one was going to make the decision maker more successful. The "no one got fired for buying IBM..errr...Microsoft" is prevalent. It might not be the best decision but it is a safe one.

"What is the goal"? I would say if software companies want to be successful in the long run do the following:

1) Build a safe brand
2) Team with the consultants that are really consulting and not just implementing
3) Teach your own folks to solution sell and get at the root of what is going on.

Anyway, I would also like to remember that there are larger goals out there. I got reminded of that this week when two individuals I would call friends have been nailed with Stage 4 cancers. One of them is still fighting the fight and needs help. Anything you can do, head to http://ottoschutt.com/ and read.
          Quick update on the gaming console crow   
Even though I took a shellacking from my friends about the PS3 comments, it is proving to be correct with one twist. Microsoft is gaining the most share, Sony is bombing (so much so they have already lowered their price before the holiday season) and Nintendo is gaining all of Sony's share minus a bit to MS. I suspect to see Nintendo drop their price by the holiday in a surprise move, but not too surprising since they are the only company to make money off of their system. I then see the xBox 360 and PS3 following suit and for Sony yep that will be the second price drop in a year.
          Social Networking   
It has been interesting to see how people are reacting this last year to social computing technologies as they become part of the mainstream packages (Lotus Connections & Microsoft MOSS) and as other technologies (SocialText) become real opportunities for enterprise sized organizations. We have been approached by a whole lot more companies/organizations than I ever would have thought (of course my expectations were low <30) wanting to know more about how they could use it and what they could use it for.

The software industry still suffers from marketing self gratifications in this space. What I mean by this is that we come up with words like Wiki, Blog or RSS and post it around like everyone knows what the heck we are talking about. When you ask a non-tech outside they seem to think you are talking about a fruity drink with an umbrella (Wiki), some new form of the creeping crud or something you go 4-wheelin' thru if you are down in KY (Blog), or the latest Rave party drug (RSS). I remember the most hilarious meeting I had been to in a while was one that we brought a vendor to that had blog technology. They pitched it to the customer (someone that has about $600M in capital improvement programs a year) as a tool that "your organization can begin to build communities of interest from". The customer then turned around and said, in all seriousness, "I pay these folks to work not talk about knitting". LOL!

Let me help then a bit. We have been playing around with a lot of social computing tools and solutions lately. My company is about to role out social computing to about 20,000 employees in the next 4-6 months. We have 3 schools, 4 municipalities, 2 defense organizations and about 8 enterprise organizations that are currently going through the evaluation stages and a couple of those are actually now exiting to solution deployment. So what are all of these folks using it for.

1) Talent Retention. You want to keep good talent make them feel like they are part of the company and that their words are heard. When we establish these types of technologies for this solution, we establish a methodology that engages the top management to either participate directly or to ensure their participation in commenting in the community. We all know that tool such as e-mail, the telephone and stop by meetings are horrible ways for people to stay in touch with what others are thinking. However, if you have 10-15% of your staff participating it gives you a good vibe on the community and smart management can make adjustments.

2) Mentoring. We have several industries that the talent pool is retiring at a much faster pace then the new crop is coming through school or that technology can keep up with. That being said, these organization must find a way to capture the knowledge of those users and pass it along to the masses. Things like building classroom curriculum isn't always the most effect. We use these technologies to build a "pod of knowledge" to team people up on tasks but to ensure that the work is a cooperative effort.

3) A One-Way Communication. I know this goes against the concept of "social" computing a bit but I tell you it these are some nice tools if you want to publish updates on processes such as RFI/RFP. There are many type of black hole processes where people are afraid to open the flood gate of communications but with this they can just push out updates that are much easier to do than managing a web site.

I could go on, but that is it for now...
          Is $600 gaming consoles = Jumping the Shark?   
http://apnews.excite.com/article/20060927/D8KDA5RO9.html

So okay I have bought them all since the Atari 2600. I am officially a gaming nerd and cannot break my addiction, but the vendors might be helping me out. So I do have a XBox, PS2 and Game Cube right now and was planning on upgrading all 3. The problem...$600. At first I thought, well at least with one I will get a BlueRay disc player and the other a HDDV player, but then I thought about it. Okay never mind that is just me.

I know the devices are moving closer and closer to a replacement device for a PC in many homes. I have thought for years that this is the ultimate Trojan horse play for MS to usurp Dell and others while maintaining a good partnership with them. Let's come back to buying behavior though. Mom and Dad are not going to get that larger picture that maybe they won't have to buy the Insperion because their PS3 can do e-Mail, play the mp3s and surf the web. What they are going to do is sit there with their hard earned money and say..."how about that Nintendo Wii for $200". I am not sure I would take a $.07 bet on this one because things have surprised me before in this space. What I would take a $.07 on is that Nintendo gains market share, Microsoft stays the same and Sony is the big loser. MS might be the big surprise just because I think they are the only ones focused on the next gen of gaming (look at the stuff they are doing with Peter "he is the king" Jackson).
          Zuna vs iPod   
I have been engulfing myself with Zuna material over that last several months trying to get a clearer picture of actually what MS is planning on shipping. It looks smart with its WiFi connectivity instead of fumbling with cables and its gargantuan hard drive that will make 60 Gigs music players look like an IBM AT soon enough.

That being said the platform that will win will be the one that has the content. Apple has done a great job with iTunes and now the TV shows (something like 150 shows in their format). Microsoft did a good job with the gaming console but not enough to lure games like Metal Gear Solid and such huge titles away from Sony and thus Sony is still winning. Speaking of Sony though let's not mention why the heck they aren't in this battle ( Walkman ).

MS is going to have the better player at least until Apple has a chance to regroup and possibly leapfrog but their success lies in the hands of some Desperate Housewives. However, even Survivors will make money in this House (man!!! I couldn't resist but that is bad).
          When is a message a message?   
I just got done looking at the IBM SameTime 7.5 and the Microsoft Communicator 2007 Betas and am a bit disappointed that neither company has taken advantage of what I see as a big opportunity.

Simply put there is NO difference between e-mail and instant messaging and the first company to realize that is in line to change the model. If you think there is a major difference, ask yourself why e-mail is so easily completely replaced with instant messaging for the younger generation.

There are a couple of boundary functions that each has that has always kept them seperate. E-Mail has always had the asynchronous capabilities along with the archival management (folders, sent, backup, auditing, etc...). IM on the other hand has always had the more real-time aspects of communication such as the ability to transition into a many to many chat instead of those fun back to back e-mail thread you can never follow. IM has also always had precence but we have seen that slipping into all e-mail products out there now, even the web based ones.

There are other differences also but they are at a lower level (e.g. in e-mail you don't need any prior relationship with the user to send them a message but in instant messaging you typically need to be able to discover their contact information prior to sending a message). The ironic thing though is that most instant messaging architectures, or at least any one that has the ability to be federated, is not truely instant. It is a store and forward mechanism much like e-mail anyway.

As for the UI I think it ends up being a mix between the two. I like the lite interface of IM with just my contacts and the list of messages at the bottom. However, I now get about 150-200 im's a day (direct replacement of e-mail) so I could really use an Inbox with some sorting capability.

E-Mail as we know it today will be dead in the next 7-10 years (btw you will find in my blog I will be assertive and I will take any $.07 bet out there ;-)). Users will have either completely switched over to an IM platform because they want a more contextual/less spammish environment or IM will be tossed because it never grew up to include the things like archival, backup and auditing that any kind of Enterprise communication infrastructure needs. I don't think this opens up the messaging market but I do think it will tilt the market either to IBM or Microsoft...whichever gets it first.

          Index Funds?   
What are index funds and should you invest in them?

A few years back, a reader wrote that I should look into index funds.  And I did and bought some shares in a couple of them.  What are index funds?  They are just mutual funds - that follow some stock index.   There are a plethora of mutual funds out there, investing in everything from stocks to bonds, to government bonds, to whatever.   And each fund usually has some sort of goal or strategy.  Small Cap, Large Cap, foreign bonds, US bonds, Municipal Bonds, tech stocks, energy stocks, income stocks, or whatever.

And each fund has a fund manager or managers who manage the fund and decide what to invest in.  And for the most part, you have no idea on what they are investing in, on a day-to-day basis.   You can sort of get an idea from the prospectus and annual report, but you don't know what they are buying and selling in real-time.   You are leaving it to an expert to make sound decisions, and he generally gets paid more for making better decisions, so his interests are aligned with yours.

Compare this to hedge funds, where the managers get paid a percentage of the fund balance regardless of whether they make money or not.   You can understand why people are fleeing hedge funds these days - the overhead is high and the returns in recent years are not as attractive.

Mutual funds may have front-end loads or back-end loads or they may be no-load.   For a typical "load" fund may have to pay a fee upfront (deducted from your investment) when you invest, and often this fee goes in part to the salesman who sold you the fund.  Yes, that friendly "investment advisor" isn't working for oxygen, he needs food on his table.  And that is why, when you, as a young person, go to a "storefront" investment advisor (and you know exactly which one I am talking about - coming to a strip mall near you!) they really aren't interested in talking to you unless you have at least $10,000 to invest - so they can make $500 "advising" you which mutual funds to invest in.   If you are just starting out in investing, well, go fuck yourself.   Come back when you got some real money, kid!  (Or at least that was my experience when I was in my 20's).

Some funds have fees (back end loads) you have to pay when you sell shares in the fund.  The idea here is to encourage you to invest for the long haul, rather than trade. So they penalize you when you decide to sell.   And some funds are "no load" which seems to defy gravity.  How does a mutual fund company make money if they are not charging a fee?  Volume?  No, they have something called an expense ratio that they charge to the fund every year.  You don't see this as a line-item on your statement, but it is buried in the annual report somewhere if you look for it.  And no, the friendly storefront investment advisor doesn't mention it unless you ask, and even then....

And let me just say right here that I was invested in mutual funds for well over a decade before I understood any of this.   And yes, I had investment "advisors" tell me I was investing in a "no load" fund which turned out to have a 5% front-end load, of which the advisor got half.   When rolling over a 401(k) or IRA, be particularly aware of this.   You might, after a few years of hard work, accumulate $100,000 or more in your 401(k).   Your friendly "investment advisor" will suggest you roll this over when you leave the company.   And if you are not careful, he may skim 5% off the top when you move the funds to his company - as a State Farm rep once tried to do with me.

It seems that no matter what investment house you use, the want you to "roll over" your investments to their little playpen, and usually there is a reason for this - a monetary reason.   Caveat Emptor.

But there are "no load" funds out there, and these funds make their money for their managers through the expense ratio fees.  And some funds charge a lot, and some charge a little.  Vanguard has a lot of low expense ratio funds.  And of these, index funds usually have the lowest expense ratios.  Why?  Well an index fund, as the name implies, invests in a "market basket" of stocks that correspond to some market index, such as the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA), the S&P 500, the NASDAQ Composite, or the like.

What are these indexes?  Well, that is the funny thing.  When people say "the stock market went up" or "the stock market went down" they are not talking about the entire market but an index instead.  The DJIA, for example, tries to measure the health of the market using a collection ("market basket") of stocks, usually "blue chip" type stocks.  And who is on this list of stocks and who is not, changes over time.  So in essence, the Dow, Jones people are "managing" your fund by determining what stocks are in the DJIA.   Your management company merely buys these stocks, takes a small, small cut as the expense ratio (like 0.15%) and then pays you the rest.

The advantages touted by such funds are many.   These indexes seem to go up over time far more than many "managed" investments.   People say if you just followed "The Dow" you'd make out better than most prognosticators, over time.   And since the expense ratios are tiny, you don't waste a lot of money on overhead costs.   For the mutual fund company, the costs are low, as a computer can basically trade the stocks automatically, as each person buys into the fund or sells out.

For example, Vanguard Total Stock Market Index Fund, states its goals as follows:
The Fund seeks to track the performance of a benchmark index that measures the investment return of the overall stock market. The Fund employs a "passive management" approach designed to track the performance of the CRSP US Total Market Index.
So in this case, the "index" is the "US Total Market Index" as determined by the Center for Research in Security Prices (CRSP).   This is an index that actually tries to track the overall market.   How does the fund perform?  What are they invested in ?   Well our friends at Morningstar (who I thought made breakfast sausages, but I was mistaken) have some data on this:

What is a little scary to me about index funds is that these indexes tend to include popular and trendy stocks.   I would not buy Facebook stock on a dare, but since I am invested in mutual funds, I end up owning some of it, although only 1.41% of the overall fund.

Should you invest in an index fund?  Sure, why not.  But not as the only thing you invest in.  Odds are, at your place of work, if you have a 401(k), one of the choices of funds to invest in, is an index fund.   I would not put all my eggs into one fund basket, though, as indexes do go down over time.

Which are the best funds?   Well, it depends on who you ask, and when.  "Investorplace" has a list of the 7 best funds, but they also have a list of 10.  Kiplinger has a list of "only five" funds you need to know about.   Even Motley Fool has a list.   Odds are, your investment house has some of their own funds.  Fidelity and Vanguard have them, I am sure Merrill does as well.  The real decision to make is which index to use and who has the lowest expense ratios.   It goes without saying that paying a "load" on an index fund is sort of pointless.   It is not like they are advising you or trading your shares.

The advantages are many.  It sort of puts your investments on auto-pilot.   The market goes up, you make money.  It goes down, you lose with everyone else (unless your particular index outperforms the overall market).  You don't have to worry about traders churning your account down to zero by making crappy trades.  It is a pretty brainless form of investing.

But for the most part, it is a risk-taking venture, and unless your index fund is indexed on a government bond index or something, you can lose money.   So putting all your eggs into the index-fund basket is, in my opinion, a bad idea.

          Global cyberattack seems intent on havoc, not extortion   
PARIS – A cyberattack that caused indiscriminate economic damage around the world was apparently designed to create maximum havoc in Russia's neighbor and adversary Ukraine, security researchers said.

While the rogue software used in the attack was configured as extortionate "ransomware," that may have just been a ruse.

"It is clear that this was targeted indiscriminately at Ukrainian businesses, and the Ukrainian government," Jake Williams, president of the security firm Rendition Infosec and a former member of the U.S. National Security Agency's elite cyberwarfare group, said in an online chat. "The 'ransomware' component is just a smokescreen (and a bad one)."

UKRAINE IN PAIN

Although the attack was global in its reach, Ukraine bore the brunt. Computers were disabled at banks, government agencies, energy companies, supermarkets, railways and telecommunications providers. Many of these organizations said they had recovered by Thursday, although some experts suspected that work was incomplete.

"There is still a lot of damage, especially in banks," said Victor Zhora, CEO of the Kiev cybersecurity firm InfoSafe. "ATMS are working (again) but some bank operations are still limited." He estimated damage in "the millions of dollars, perhaps tens of millions."

And that's just in Ukraine. Microsoft said the malware hit at least 64 nations, including Russia, Germany and the United States. "I expect that we will see additional fallout from this is the coming days," said Williams.

In Ukraine, suspicion immediately fell on hackers affiliated with Vladimir Putin's regime, although there is no direct, public evidence tying Russia to the attack. Relations between the two nations have been tense since Moscow annexed the Crimean peninsula from Ukraine in 2014. Pro-Russian fighters are still battling the government in eastern Ukraine.

Experts have also blamed pro-Russian hackers for major cyberattacks on the Ukrainian power grid in 2015 and 2016, assaults that have turned the eastern European nation into the world's leading cyberwarfare testing ground. A disruptive attack on the nation's voting system ahead of 2014 national elections is also attributed to Russia.

THE MOSCOW CONNECTION

The malicious program, which is known by a variety of names, including NotPetya, initially appeared to be ransomware. Such malware locks up victims' files by encrypting them, then holds them hostage while demanding payment – usually in bitcoin, the hard-to-trace digital currency.

But researchers said the culprits would have been hard-pressed to make money off the scheme. They appear to have relied on a single email address that was blocked almost immediately and a single bitcoin account that collected the relatively puny sum of $10,000.

Firms including Russia's anti-virus Kaspersky Lab, said clues in the code indicate that the program's authors would have been incapable of decrypting the data, further evidence that the ransom demands were a smoke screen.

The timing was intriguing, too. The attack came the same day as the assassination of a senior Ukrainian military intelligence officer and a day before a national holiday celebrating the new Ukrainian constitution signed after the breakup of the Soviet Union.

"Everything being said so far does point to Russia being a leading candidate for a suspect in this attack," said Robert M. Lee, CEO of Dragos Inc. an expert who has studied the attacks on Ukraine's power grid.

What's most worrisome and reprehensible, said Lee, is that whoever was behind the attack was unconcerned about the indiscriminate, collateral damage it caused – much of it within Russia itself. That's highly atypical behavior for nation-states.

ACCOUNTING FOR MALWARE

Williams and other researchers said all evidence indicates that NotPetya was introduced via Ukrainian financial software provider MeDoc. It is one of just two companies in the eastern European nation that supplies required tax software, Zhora said.

Security experts believe MeDoc was the unwitting victim of something akin to a "watering-hole attack," where a malicious program surreptitiously planted at a popular destination infects parties that visit. MeDoc's user base is heavily financial – and includes multinational corporations with offices in Ukraine.

NotPetya was cleverly engineered to spread laterally within Windows networks and across the globe via private network connections. Globally, dozens of major corporations and government agencies have been disrupted, including FedEx subsidiary TNT.

Danish shipping giant A.P. Moller-Maersk, one of the global companies hit hardest, said Thursday that most of its terminals were running again, though some are operating in a limited way or more slowly than usual.

Problems have been reported across the shippers' global business, from Mobile, Alabama, to Mumbai in India. At Mumbai's Jawaharlal Nehru Port, several hundred containers could be seen piled up at just two of more than a dozen yards.

"The vessels are coming, the ships are coming, but they are not able to take the container because all the systems are down," trading and clearing agent Rajeshree Verma said. "We are actually in a fix because of all this."

          mysql oracle   
mysql中 myisam 引擎不支持事务的概念,多用于数据仓库这样查询多而事务少的情况,速度较快。
mysql中 innoDB 引擎支持事务的概念,多用于web网站后台等实时的中小型事务处理后台。

而oracle没有引擎的概念,oracle有OLTP和OLAP模式的区分,两者的差别不大,只有参数设置上的不同。
oracle无论哪种模式都是支持事务概念的,oracle是一个不允许读脏的数据库系统。



当今的数据处理大致可以分成两大类:联机事务处理OLTP(on-line transaction processing)、联机分析处理OLAP(On-Line Analytical Processing)。OLTP是传统的关系型数据库的主要应用,主要是基本的、日常的事务处理,例如银行交易。OLAP是数据仓库系统的主要应用,支持复杂的分析操作,侧重决策支持,并且提供直观易懂的查询结果.
OLTP:
也称为面向交易的处理系统,其基本特征是顾客的原始数据可以立即传送到计算中心进行处理,并在很短的时间内给出处理结果。
这样做的最大优点是可以即时地处理输入的数据,及时地回答。也称为实时系统(Real time System)。衡量联机事务处理系统的一个重要性能指标是系统性能,具体体现为实时响应时间(Response Time),即用户在终端上送入数据之后,到计算机对这个请求给出答复所需要的时间。OLTP是由数据库引擎负责完成的。
OLTP 数据库旨在使事务应用程序仅写入所需的数据,以便尽快处理单个事务。
OLAP:
简写为OLAP,随着数据库技术的发展和应用,数据库存储的数据量从20世纪80年代的兆(M)字节及千兆(G)字节过渡到现在的兆兆(T)字节和千兆兆(P)字节,同时,用户的查询需求也越来越复杂,涉及的已不仅是查询或操纵一张关系表中的一条或几条记录,而且要对多张表中千万条记录的数据进行数据分析和信息综合,关系数据库系统已不能全部满足这一要求。在国外,不少软件厂商采取了发展其前端产品来弥补关系数据库管理系统支持的不足,力图统一分散的公共应用逻辑,在短时间内响应非数据处理专业人员的复杂查询要求。
联机分析处理(OLAP)系统是数据仓库系统最主要的应用,专门设计用于支持复杂的分析操作,侧重对决策人员和高层管理人员的决策支持,可以根据分析人员的要求快速、灵活地进行大数据量的复杂查询处理,并且以一种直观而易懂的形式将查询结果提供给决策人员,以便他们准确掌握企业(公司)的经营状况,了解对象的需求,制定正确的方案。

          Derrick Williams Writeup   

Derrick Williams - So. SF/PF, Arizona

PER36min numbers against Quality Opponents (6 games):

24 pts, 11.1 rebs, 0.7 asts, 1.3 stls, 1.1 blks, 3.5 PFs, 3.1 TOs

53.4 FG%, 50.0 3pt% (5/10), 72.1 FT%, .93 FTA/FGA

Derrick Williams has a variety of opinions regarding how he’ll translate to the NBA level. Some think he has the tools to be a #1 option, some claim he’ll have to make the transition to SF to be effective, and some believe he’ll be like David West. What is not up for debate, however, is that he is an elite offensive weapon at the college level.


At 6’8, 241lbs Williams is a little undersized for a PF, however he is powerfully built and is relatively long. When projecting him to the NBA level, he possesses great athleticism for the PF position, while also being an above average athlete for the SF spot. I think it’s feasible that he could play either spot in the pros, though at this time he is far better suited for the PF spot due to his lack of shot-creation skills on the perimeter. He will, however, be a great source of energy and highlights because he can get up and finish.

Offensively, Williams is a great college talent. He gets flashes in the paint, seals, and gets position with the best of them which allows for him to get easy points against the smaller, less physical competition that he currently faces in college. His footwork around the hoop also can make his competition look silly, and is an area of strength which should translate well to the next level. He utilizes jab steps, spins, drop steps, and counter moves to get a good look at the hoop. Then, while looking to draw contact at every opportunity possible, his phenomenal touch around the rim allows him to convert at high percentages. This type of efficiency in the post allows him to draw an enormous amount of fouls and is the reason he boasts nearly a 1:1 FTA:FGA ratio, an incredible rate for someone as skilled as he is.

What balances his excellent post game is that he is also great spot up shooter who can hit 3’s at high efficiency. This will make him an extremely dangerous player alongside a competent PG, as when he screens he can both roll to the hoop to finish with authority, or pop out and nail the open jumper. He will, however, need to continue to advance his ball-handling skills as he cannot create his own looks on the perimeter, merely using his handle to drive to the rim when there is an opening in the defense. Another area which needs work is his recognition of open teammates flashing in the lane or open on the perimeter. To his credit, he does not force the issue if the defense is loaded on his side of the floor, but he also does not make the easy pass when it’s there - then again, when you are as efficient as Derrick is (he sports a very good 1.09 PPP) he is likely the best option on his college team unless triple teamed.

Onto what I consider one of his most prominent weaknesses: although Derrick possesses a nice combination of length and athleticism, he is not a quality defender. Frequently Derrick is seen “doing the wave” defensively, where he will stand straight up and put his arms in the air to deter his opponents shot attempt. While it’s better than committing a foul or doing absolutely nothing, this also makes him a relatively ineffective post defender who can be seen getting beat far too easily for a player who possesses the physical strengths he does. There are countless times I have seen guards attack the rim against Arizona and Williams will not contest but instead stand and watch - likely one of the reasons that the Wildcats are one of the worst defensive teams among the college powerhouses (they have a 91.2 adjusted D ranking according to kenpom.com, which places them 38th out of the top-50 teams). Although he is not a major threat around the rim, he does have relatively quick hands for a big and can be seen creating steals and then using his exceptional athleticism to run the floor and finish.

Lastly, his rebounding fundamentals could use quite a bit of work if he’s going to spend time at the PF spot. Although his numbers have picked up lately, Williams has serious flaws in his fundamentals where he uses his arms far more than his body to get position. Because he uses his arms, the guy he is attempting to box out can easily get around him and snatch the ball, while Derrick is left trying to use his athleticism to out jump his opponent. He should be a much more dominant rebounder than he currently is given his athleticism and the fact that he is usually playing PF and sometimes C for the Wildcats, but instead he is an average rebounder compared to the 15 PFs I have stats logged for.

Overall, there is plenty to like with Williams. While he is an undersized PF by NBA standards, he has the skills and athleticism to make up for the height advantage his opponents will have, while also having the ability to spend time at the SF spot (possibly full-time if he improves his handle). At his current pace, I believe he will be selected in the 7-15 range when draft time rolls around. The main things keeping him out of the top-5 discussion for me are his defensive shortcomings and his relatively average rebounding skills which I believe will keep him from being a force at the NBA level and instead will be looking at an upside of Antawn Jamison if he fulfills his potential.

    HM Revenue and Customs/Telford, Shropshire, United Kingdom

    Cloud Systems Engineer (Design, Developer, ITIL, AWS, Linux) - 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.

It is less clear why financial services companies, which play a much more directly correlated zero sum game, would open up code that they paid the engineering team to create.

              Many Wins for the LGBT Community Since Election   
    While much of the media is still concentrating on the passage of anti-gay legislation back in November, many gains for LGBT equality are being made across the nation.
    • Just yesterday, our community and elected officials made these changes!
      • Columbus, Ohio, and Binghamton, NY's, city councils both, extended their nondiscrimination laws to include discrimination based on gender identity and expression.
      • Sioux City, Iowa's, city council decided to delay action on a proposal that would publicly oppose marriage equality.
      • A federal judge denied Birmingham, Alabama's, request that the court dismiss an anti-gay discrimination lawsuit.
      • Ankeny, Iowa's, school board denied a request to bar children from reading the children's book And Tango Makes Three, which features two male penguins who raise a chick together.
      • New York's governor mandated that gay parents be allowed to appear on birth certificates.
    With the discouraging losses on Nov. 4, it's important to point out all of our steps forward and to know that for the most part these issues have been covered by the media in a fair, accurate, and inclusive way. Fair media visibility of our community on the local level-everywhere from Florida to Alaska to Iowa-makes a big change in the way our neighbors perceive us. In addition to the media coverage in your community, sharing your story with your community helps change hearts and minds too!

    THE 1967 WARNING AGAINST THE ROTHSCHILD INFILTRATION

    Stunning 1967 Dissertation Warns Infiltration of Rothschild Luciferians in US Government 2


    Between 1967 and 1968 Myron Fagan recorded three LP records: The Illuminati and the Council on Foreign Relations.  The dissertations document the activities of the house of Rothschild were  produced byAnthony J. Hilder – an American activist, author, film maker, talk show host, broadcaster and former actor.
    This stunning recording from 1967 speaks to the very problems we face today, including Fake News, government corruption, the Corrupt United Nations and infiltration of a Luciferian Rothschild cult who may have gained irreversible control of the US government.

    JOURNALIST SHUTS DOWN TRUMP ASSASSINATION PLAY

    "Stop liberal violence!" Journalist screams

    A conservative journalist interrupted the Trump assassination play in Central Park, N.Y., on Friday, only two days after the politically-motivated shooting of Republican lawmakers.
    Laura Loomer of Rebel Media was arrested after rushing the stage, yelling that the production promoted violence against President Trump and his supporters.
    The play, which is sponsored by Time Warner and the New York Times, features a Trump-lookalike who is violently assassinated in the same manner as Julius Caesar.

    THE INCREDIBLY BRAVE HEROINE, MONIKA WESOLOWSKI ... MAY SHE BE PROTECTED IN EVERY DIVINE WAY

    Breaking: Whistleblower Says Deep State in Control of State Department : Ongoing Child-Trafficking Cover-Up at St. Dept.


    Did you know that at the State Department they have an exorbitantly paid employee, of Middle East background, who is in charge of the sex-trafficking brochures for the State Department? Did you know that same person refuses to cover this issue as domestic issue? This plays right into the hands of the Deep State cover-up of their child-sex-trafficking practices at the highest levels of government? This is tantamount to overtly supporting and covering up child-sex-trafficking and the State Department is the willing accomplice. Did you also know that the State Department has 3 men, led by Deep State minion and close Obama ally, Larry Palmer, who controls all information coming in and out of the State Department and they control the FOIA’s for the State Department as well.
    State Department employee, Monika Wesolowski, has been unduly harassed and has had her life threatened for trying to expose traitors and overt practices of treason and sedition by State Department employees who are aligned with the Deep State motives and objectives. The following is an interview I conducted with Monika followed by objective, hard proof of the claims made by this whistleblower.
    Unlike a lot of sources,this interview names the names of the guilty.

    Monika “Begs” for Protection and Nobody From the State Department Will Help

    Monika has begged for protection from the death threats, violent attacks and constant harassment. As recently as last Tuesday, June 13, 2017, Monika took the issue to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s aides. As of the date of this publication, she has not heard back on this critical issue. I want to put the State Department on notice, you do not wait 5 days to investigate these kinds of allegations when someone’s life is in danger. This is an example of intentional/unintentional depraved indifference to the safety of of State Department employee, Monika Wesolowski (see the email communications at the bottom of the page).
    Previously, on The Common Sense Show,  I documented, with pictures, government vehicles that have stalked and harassed Monika. The Fairfax, VA. police have told Monika that it is not safer to go home and they cannot protect her.
    More recently, Monika has had animals poisoned to death. She, herself, has had to be treated for poisoning, some of which was uranium related. When I recently tried to interview Monika by Skype, ourcommunications were blocked for hours. Simultaneously, our cell phone communications were blocked as well. Here home has been invaded when she is not home. She was boxed in by two Muslim men, at the carwash, and stayed near until she called the police. This woman is the Deep State posterchild for political and personal harassment. In the following emails, please note the reference to CHILD-SEX-TRAFFICKING. I further want it to be known that Liz Crokin discovered a connection between the Virginia Shooter baseball practice shooter and child-sex-trafficking and that the primary shooting victim, Rep. Scalise had just sponsored a child-sex-trafficking bill eight days prior to being shot. This is no coincidence, the Deep State strikes again.
    Monika has backed out of previous interviews because she is in fear of her life. I have convinced her that if you are going to be on the list, you better be on top of the list. Because I know the fate of Breitbart and Hastings, I have shared this information with other journalistic outlets who are going to cover this case and we are going to turn up the heat significantly.
    I want to remind everyone, that in several earlier publications, I have tapped into two unnamed sources, one from the FBI and one from the State Department and was told that there is a Deep State purge underway. Monika confirms the assertion as her office is “like a morgue, people have either left or people have cleared out their desks and are awaiting their departure”.

    Crickets Chirping

    After numerous instances of being harassed and attacked, she reached out to Secretary Tillerson’s office, but to no avail. Here are the unanswered communications:

    Ms. Peterlin and Ms. Kenna,
    The issue goes back deeper into 2013 and child trafficking. I have not seen my eight year old son in a year . I worry for his safety and mine. It is imperative I speak to you in person, I will not speak to anyone outside of Mr. Tillerson’s close administration for fear for my life and that of my son’s. Thank you for speaking to me on the phone. I have been wanting to send this email for several months but afraid to.

    Importance: High
    Dear Ms. Peterlin,
    I proudly attended Secretary of State Tillerson’s swearing in ceremony and have faith that he will be successful at the State Department. I would like to arrange a meeting with your office with the Secretary of State Mr. Rex Tillerson. It is imperative I speak to Mr. Tillerson. I do not feel safe at my office or at home, I have been under constant attack. I have had things happen to my family, myself, and in the office that I cannot talk about in email. I feel my life and health, as well as that of my family and those close to me, is in danger because of where I work and the people I work with, and their connections. I do not know who to trust and cannot trust Diplomatic Security here at DOS, my coworkers or upper management, especially not Ambassador Palmer, who is Deputy Assistant Secretary for Global Information Services. I was informed by my HR that Ambassador Palmer pushed for the Hatch Act for my having a photograph and items of President Trump in my cubicle after the election. The situation at work has been hostile and I have been harassed. Please let me know if you could speak with me or arrange a meeting with the Secretary. Please expect a call regarding this email just to verify.
    Thank you kindly,

     Conclusion

     I believe Monika’s best protection is the light of day. On that note, I would ask that all forward this article to your contact list. Secondly, if Tillerson’s office will not respond to this grave situation, then I would ask that everyone send this article to President Trump AND Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Finally, we need to keep the heat on this issue.

    Neil deGrasse Tyson now pushing Monsanto propaganda alongside wife abuser and convicted felon
    Mike Adams
    Why am I not surprised? Neil deGrasse Tyson, who has become a mouthpiece for the GMO and chemical agricultural industries that poison the global food supply, is narrating a new documentary called "Food Evolution."
    The film pushes the same pro-GMO propaganda as a violent wife abuser who used to write for Forbes. Another fake science front group -- the ACSH -- appears in the film and is run by a convincted medical fraud FELON who spent years in prison (and now runs biotech propaganda campaigns for a living).
    Neil deGrasse Tyson has become a shameful betrayor of humanity and nature and an insult to real science.
