Living Room / Re: 3000 Days Online: 30th May 2013

We need a countdown clock.  :Thmbsup:

And a post in the 100'th post thread  :P

Hey M,

As I re-read my post, I realize it may have come off as somewhat of a put-down.   :huh:  I trust that you remember the respect and admiration I hold for you and read it with my "mental" intent. :)

Internal Structural choices?  Is this an MVC vs. "everything else" quest?  I'm not doubting your desire, just trying to understand.

This almost feels like a which web development framework is best discussion and I'm sure that's not your intention.  It just gets really foggy sometimes in the Web Dev world. :)  At least for me.

I'm currently suffering from Analysis Paralysis for PHP Dev.   Zend, Pear, Cake, Yii, etc. etc. ad nauseum.

For the sake of mouser's goal... please reply to any comments of mine re: PHP frameworks in a new thread. ;)

Sadly, I'm amused by this.  I think it was the last square that left me laughing.  The new "perfect man in all the universe" makes me laugh.  :P

On a more serious note, I do feel bad for those folks in N. Korea.  I'm not sure why China won't let us liberate them.....

Somehow if idiots claim to be Scientists, they have credibility.  Calling BS. 

Sorry folks, I'm in a mood.

As read in the HDFS User mail list:
All of Hadoop's javadocs were recently lost from our website when it
was converted to svnpubsub.  These were historically not stored in
subversion but manually added to the website by release managers.
When the site was converted to svnpubsub no one had first copied the
docs tree into subversion so it was lost.
(It could perhaps be
recovered from tape archives, but that would be a pain.)

Yesterday, on seeing this, I reconstructed what I could.  I extracted
documentation from the release tarballs of recent releases an pushed
it into subversion.  Those release tarballs did not seem to include
HDFS javadocs.

You've found two links to HDFS javadocs in what I restored, and those
links, as you note, are broken.  If someone has those javadocs or
wants to build them then they can be restored by committing them to
subversion under:


I've not seen (broken) links to HDFS documentation in the other more
recent releases whose documentation I restored.

An alternative might be to put a redirect in to the HDFS user guide to
fix those two broken links.  If folks prefer that approach I'd be
happy to implement it.

Where's the face-palm smiley? 

@Mouser  Were you asleep when you posted this?  :P

I know this has been torturing you for a long time.  I think you need to be a little more selfish about your goals.  General comparison of CMS's will be an academic exercise in the general study of synergistic relationships for high impact effectiveness.*

Any CMS you look at will have features and flaws.  The one you learn the best is probably the one that you will be most effective with.  If yumps is feeling like it doesn't fit the bill, take a step back, re-think it and be willing to admit you were wrong. 
If you're really stumped, search for some design patterns that have already solved the problem.  If you can't find any existing, break the problem down into smaller chunks.  IMHO, all of the CMS problems have been solved; user interface and RAD effectiveness are the only variables.

So, now that we've gotten the obvious stuff out of the way, what's the problem that you're trying to solve?  ;)

*No, it doesn't mean anything.  :P

Got it, and it can be synced on Linux by mounting via WebDAV:

I've been trying for the last 6 days to get my Centos 6 VPS to talk to Box via davfs.........that's about the first time I've seen https:// mentioned in the process.

Yes, it should have been obvious :-\

Back to the drawing board....

I have this working on Fedora.  How can I help?

What's the VPS part after Centos?

Living Room / Re: Website under attack ... help needed
« on: February 11, 2013, 10:43 PM »
Look @ .htaccess your file too.

I saw an attack where the injected code was not "seeable" via cat/less/vi.  All it did was inject porn images in place of the normal ones, but check everything. :)

I'm significantly not impressed by the amount.  After you have a few billion, what's the difference?

If it's half of his reported wealth, that's not impressive?

Pfft!  No!  Half of 100x more than I could ever spend* in a lifetime?  No!  Not impressed.  Conversely, I am saddened by by the number of financial moguls that seek to establish family dynasties that survive their deaths.  

It's my opinion and I'm entitled.  ;)

*Seriously!  Unless you piss money away, 10 million $ would keep 99.9% of Americans happy and healthy for 100 years.  And American's piss away $ faster than anyone.

The best I can say about W. Gates is, that compared to Steve Jobs philanthropic ventures,  W. & B. are saints.   :P

I have issues with their choices, motivation, etc.  But at least he's giving back.

I'm significantly not impressed by the amount.  After you have a few billion, what's the difference?

One of these days I'm going to sit down and learn a hellava lot more about WWII.

Every time I learn a tidbit I am SO incredibly impressed by what people did during that time.  There were so many incredible people doing so many incredible things it's really amazing.

I'll have to dig up details, but here's a tidbit:
In WWII, the USAF did some amazing things will pulling wounded soldiers from behind enemy lines.  They stocked gliders with female nurses and sneaked them onto the battle field.  Once the wounded were loaded on board, they'd hang a snag line up and snatch the glider off the ground.

Imagine sitting in a glider behind enemy lines waiting to snatched off the ground...  People volunteered to serve this way.

Learning about them gives me hope for the future. :)

Living Room / When to trust co-workers with your income?
« on: January 11, 2013, 11:56 PM »
Hey DC'ers.  I come asking this here (as opposed to /., reddit, etc.) because I know the culture here.  Good people, with varied views, trying to promote good welfare for all. :)  I'm proud to be a part of this community for a while.

While I don't always agree with everyone's views (who can?) I do respect (and have been equally respected) the views of members of the great culture.

Here is my situation:  I started working with Hadoop Administration a few months ago.  I'm now on the Center for Excellence Team for a Fortune 20 company (1 of 4 key members (as defined by our VP)).  I'm working with some brilliant men.  I'm humbled to be a part of the team.  I think we have a chance to produce some potentially significant improvements to Hadoop in general (Yeah, these guys are that good.). 

My problem is this: (get ready to laugh)
We could bust our asses, work for the man, update our resumes (CV's) and go somewhere else and make +x% income.  Or, we could start a pizza & beer franchise.  :D
College campuses would never be the same if we went that route.

How do you decide something like this?  I'm not joking, the business model we have should be wildly successful.

Living Room / The Internets makes me laugh
« on: January 04, 2013, 01:27 AM »
I saw Edvard's post about $99 super computers and notice the source:
"from teh intarwebs" 

His sig. line is funny too:  "All children left unattended will be given a mocha and a puppy."  --- I typed that from memory, hope I got it right.

This is just a small sampling of humor found on the webs.  LOLCats (catz?),, Rick rolling, it's all so much fun. 

 :-\  what on the interweb tubes makes you laugh?   :P

Stock ROM, Nexus 7.  Have been on 4.x since Oct.  Currently on 4.2.1

Angry Birds plays really well on this version.   :Thmbsup:

Thanks f0dder for throwing out some fodder...  You can screw up any OS if you try hard enough.   Of course it's a little hard to do on Linux, but give them credit for trying hard.   :P

Count on Mouser to lead the pack and ask what the ruckus is all about.   :P

It'd be one thing if he just added, LOL's or Me Too's to stuff, but he brings Content.  :Thmbsup:

Of course he does own the joint!  :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup:

On the other hand, it is a good way to avoid import taxed on the "Value" of the item being shipped.   :P

Cody always cracks me up.  The video was nice, I LOL'd a couple of times.  ;D

Silly Cody.

A bartender at my local pub created this one night.  5 pounds of ground beef, 1 pound of bacon, 1 pound of cheese, 3 pizza crusts, Jim Beam BBQ Sauce and a few misc. spices.  This is a single slice (about 1/8'th of the whole) and it stands 4.5" at the peak.  It took me 2 days to eat thru it, but it was damn good.   :P    I might have experience meat overload for a brief time after eating it. :D

Living Room / Re: History of CP/M
« on: November 04, 2012, 12:47 AM »
But it does show just how underhanded MS was in it's stolen code and the eventual death of CP/M, which was by far superior to MS's OS at the time.

Not sure what you mean here.  MS based is crappy OS on QDOS, which it bought from someone who should've asked for more $. ;)

CP/M died for the same reason most of MS's competitors do, Out Marketed.  MS excels at Marketing and adaptation; they just really suck at originality. :) :two:

The Galactic Football League books by Scott Sigler are a lot of fun.  See all of his work here.

I just started reading the Mistborn series by Brandon Sanderson.

The Discworld Series is a lot of fun too.
