Add To Trip

API Endpoint: 
https://api-v1.addtotrip.co/
API Description: 
Add to Trip is a centralized white-label, graph-api platform where travelers can collaborate with friends and family on a trip via their website or application. The Add to Trip API lets users manage a social travel network including user creation/authentication, social notifications, geolocation searches, trip itineraries, travel related objects and more. With the API, developers can create trips; add hotels, flights and more to that trip; invite friends to join the trip via social tools such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn; use geolocation to look up other user's trips and recommendations. The API also lets users create a social travel graph by relating objects to each other. Users can get information about travel-specific items such as restaurants, hotels, points of interest, activities, shopping, purchase history, and their relationships between each other and people. This functionality allows users to create believable recommendations based on where someone has traveled, their purchase behavior, and their friends. In addition, the Add to Trip API has a messaging mechanism, where any thread of messages can be related to any other API object. The API uses RESTful calls and responses are fomratted in JSON.

          County Line Developers Band Together To Appeal Judges Ruling   
After the judge null and voided the 2013 County Line rezoning ordinance (which changed the zoning from residential to commercial) the developers have banded together to intervene and repeal the ruling.


The developers seem to realize that they have very little legal standing within the judicial system and have chosen instead to drown Mr. Michael and Cathy Stillwell - who brought on the original lawsuit, with legal fees hoping it will cause them to drop the case.


Rumors on the street is that many in the neighborhood who were glad to hear that the judge had finally restored law and order, are extremely upset at this latest development.


Is there no shame anymore?


Hopefully common sense and justice will prevail and the judge will null and void this appeal as well. See the attached Part 1 of the lawsuit, more to follow.

          Drupal core: Sort is lost when using views exposed filter   

Problem/Motivation

Original problem report, as amended by @mpp:

  • Create a paged view with an exposed block and expose the "items per page" option to allow a user to change the amount of results.
  • When applying a sort on the view and then changing the amount of items per page, the sort is lost.

The original report (from 30 Oct 2016). There were a couple of attempts to recreate the problem. It is unclear that anyone was able to recreate the same problem. Comment: #2823541-10: Sort is lost when using views exposed filter is able to recreate a problem, but not necessarily the same issue.

A new issue was created #2887144: Views exposed form block options are not updated immediately when adding additional sorts, filters, etc (Caching?).

On June 25, 2017 we tried to recreate the problem on Drupal 8.2.1 and 8.2.6 (to see if we could recreate it on the version likely being used by the original report). We were unable to recreate the problem using the steps outlined in comments:

#2823541-9: Sort is lost when using views exposed filter
#2823541-10: Sort is lost when using views exposed filter

Proposed resolution

Atm the views exposed form filters out get parameters in ViewsExposedForm::buildForm:

$form['#action'] = $view->hasUrl() ? $view->getUrl()->toStrin- g() : Url::fromRoute('<current>')->toString();

A quick workaround would be to alter the exposed block form to add current sort & order query parameters.

Remaining tasks

          Examples for Developers: Convert JsExampleController to use DescriptionTemplateTrait   

This is a child issue of #2660058: [meta] Convert controller content to twig {% trans/endtrans %} templates per module

Problem/Motivation

Defining render arrays for static content in controllers is awkward. Let's use twig templates!

See the parent issue for instructions on how to convert the controller to use twig templates.

This issue covers the js_example module.

Note that JsExampleController has an info() method, which is the only content method we want to change. The other methods on that controller demonstrate the techniques, so we want to leave them alone.

          Drupal core: Add change records to all @deprecated code   

Problem/Motivation

Drupal 8 has adopted a new deprecation policy to make it easier for developers to update outdated code: https://www.drupal.org/core/deprecation

One new part of this policy is that deprecation notices should have a change record listed with an @see that clearly indicates how to update the deprecated code. For example:

 * @deprecated in Drupal 8.0.0 and will be removed before Drupal 9.0.0.
 *   Instead, you should just check if a variable is an instance of
 *   \Drupal\Component\Render\MarkupInterface.
 *
 * @see https://www.drupal.org/node/2549395

However, we have hundreds deprecated notices in core that do not yet have the appropriate change record listed.

Proposed resolution

Read over the steps below before you start.

Try reviewing existing issues before creating more new ones. If you understand the instructions well, before creating a new issue, check to see if there are existing child issues that need review (yellow background) in the right sidebar on this page, and use the instructions as a guide to evaluate another contributor's existing patch.

  1. Look for an @deprecated tag in core. (There are hundreds!)
  2. Look for or create an issue for one you find with this issue as its parent. Make sure to look at the existing child issues to make sure you don't accidentally create the same issue twice!
  3. Check when the @deprecated notice was added using git log -L. Reference: https://dev.acquia.com/blog/maintainers-toolbox/maintainers-toolbox-git-...
  4. The issue for the commit will be included in the commit message with text like:
    Issue #2575615 by alexpott, pwolanin, stefan.r, catch, dawehner, effulgentsia, xjm, David_Rothstein, iMiksu, lauriii, joelpittet: Introduce HtmlEscapedText and remove SafeMarkup::setMultiple() and SafeMarkup::getAll() and remove the static safeStrings list
    Visit the issue node by going to that node ID on Drupal.org, e.g.: https://www.drupal.org/node/2575615
  5. Look in the old issue's right sidebar for the issue node for any change records it:
  6. If there is a single change record, look it over to make sure it has instructions for how to replace the deprecated code.
  7. If there are multiple change records, look over each to see which best explains how to replace the deprecated code.
  8. If there are no change records attached to the issue, see below for what to do if you cannot locate a change record.
  9. Check in the same file and the same commit to see if there are other @deprecated notices that should have the same change record.
  10. Create a patch that adds an @see linking the change record as in the example above, and set your issue to needs review.

Examples of where it went right

In #2873721: Add Change record to @deprecated for MigrateIdMapInterface, it was noted that effort went into seeing what was the original issue(s) that made the change. Then the final patches and commit from the original issue(s) was inspected to make sure that all deprecations are/were updated to reference the @see to the change record. Later on, the reviewer checked this as well and noted in his review that he verified there were no other places where the deprecation notice should be updated.

Examples of where some things were missed

In #2873738-10: Add Change record to @deprecated for LinkUri, it was noted that not all of the deprecations where caught. The review and initial patches earlier on also just checked for code style and if the CR was linked correctly. It did not note if all locations seem to be caught. By checking the original commit that introduced the deprecation it can be noted that changes where made to several classes. All the deprecations should note the @see.

If you cannot find a change record

If there is no change record attached to the issue for the deprecation, there are a few possibilities:

  • The change record wasn't attached to the issue properly
  • the deprecation was done in a separate issue from the API addition without the change record being updated.
  • No change record was ever created for the change (by mistake, or because it was considered too trivial, or because it was part of a larger change or pattern).
  • The deprecation itself was premature or incorrect and no replacement API exists yet.

What to do when you can't locate the change record:

  1. First, make note on your issue that you did not find a change record directly attached to the issue where the @deprecated line was committed.
  2. Then, search the existing change records related to the API: https://www.drupal.org/list-changes/drupal Be sure to search under both the "Published" and "Draft" change records, and try a few different keywords.
  3. If you find a change record that seems related, read over it to see if it has information on updating the deprecated code. Also make note of any other issues attached to the same change record, since one change record may cover many issues. These issues might help you understand more about the deprecation.
  4. At this point it's a good idea to check with a mentor or reviewer to see if the change record you've found is a good fit. Post a comment on your issue linking whatever change records you've found. Contributors to the original issue or maintainers for the subsystem might be able to give you quick feedback; try asking in IRC. Even if no change record was ever created for your specific issue, it's often better to add to an existing change record rather than creating a new one.
  5. If you find a change record that seems like a good fit:
    • Click the "Edit" tab on the change record.
    • Add a reference to both your issue and the issue that introduced the deprecation.
    • If the change record does not yet clearly cover your change, you can also edit the change record to address it. Link your revision on your issue to get review on that as well! Ask reviewers for help if you're not sure what to add.
  6. If no change records are a good fit, then you can draft a new one at: http://drupal.org/node/add/changenotice Follow the instructions on: https://www.drupal.org/contributor-tasks/draft-change-record

    As above, be sure that your new change record references both your issue and the original issue that introduced the deprecation.

  7. Finally, continue with the next steps above, including checking other deprecations in the same commit or the same file and seeing if they also should share the same change record.

An example where the CR didn't exist is #2873742: Add Change record to @deprecated for Term. This was noted, then the related issue was found, reviewed for impacts and a new CR was created at https://www.drupal.org/node/2879193.


          Drupal core: Add a startup configuration for the built-in PHP server that supports clean URLs   

Problem/Motivation

As of 5.4, PHP has a built-in web server which is useful for testing. As it does not support .htaccess files it won't work with clean-urls out of the box as it requires urls on the form http://example.com/node/1 to be rewritten to http://example.com/?q=node/1 on the fly.

Proposed resolution

Create a router-script that introduces the q query Create a startup script for the built-in web server that supports clean URLs.

The latest patch contains a file called .ht.router.php, which when used as a router script for the build-in web server, makes clean urls work. Usage:

php -S localhost:8888 .ht.router.php

Be aware that Drupal's Clean URL test does not work because the built-in web server runs only one thread and Drupal tries to make one more request when the test runs (it uses drupal_http_request() in the request). You must visit 'admin/config/search/clean-urls' path without ?q= where you can switch on clean urls.

Beta phase evaluation

Reference: https://www.drupal.org/core/beta-changes
Issue category Task because this is necessary to have Drupal working with PHP's built-in web server.
Issue priority Normal because this feature is needed by developers only.
Prioritized changes This issue is prioritized because it is going to be back-ported. The main goal of this issue is providing the expected feature of being able to run Drupal on the built-in PHP server. Plus, it works with drush.
Disruption Not disruptive for core/contributed and custom modules/themes because it is a startup script for the built-in PHP server that is used only by developers who know what they are doing.

          Does Auckland have the infrastructure capacity to host the America's cup? Alex Tarrant reviews two of the Mexican stand-offs involving central government, the Auckland Council, the Airport and Watercare   

By Alex Tarrant

Emirates Team New Zealand’s America’s Cup win has certainly fired up the Auckland infrastructure debate (as if it needed more fuel). Every interested party is now reviewing their wish list trying to figure out whether their pet project could be completed in four years. Rail, roads, houses and water pipes.

The 2021 event (Auckland will also hold the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation summit that year) might be a Godsend for getting even more Auckland infrastructure work on the move (if we can find the labourers needed – don’t mention foreigners!).

But the multiple Mexican stand-offs between the Government, Auckland Council and other parties like Auckland Airport and Watercare need to be resolved. The key in each dispute is who pays for what, when, why and how.

This (rather long) column focuses on two of those stand-offs. Rail to Auckland Airport from the CBD, and cheaper, faster provision of water services for new housing in Auckland – including boosting incentives for cheaper densification. On Rail, there is a simple answer to get things moving if the project would indeed lead to benefits. On water, revised legislation debated in Parliament last week provides some hope.

Rail to the airport

Politicians were quick to jump on the success of ETNZ earlier this week and the expected economic benefits to Auckland from holding the Cup in 2021. The Green Party used the occasion to question the Transport Minister on whether Auckland would have capacity to host the event.

“Will the government start building rail to the airport sooner, if Auckland hosts the next America’s Cup regatta, or will Aucklanders still have to wait 30 years?” Julie Anne Genter asked Simon Bridges.

Bridges’ answers focussed on the current plan of protecting a sole purpose route that will originally be marked out for a busway to the Airport. This showed the government was prioritising the project, he claimed, being careful to add it was difficult to explain what the timeframe could be for progressing to rail. This would be driven by demand and usage numbers, Bridges said.

So why not just kick-start the project of rail to the airport? If central government were to lead on funding, couldn’t others like the Council be given time to come up with their share? The reason this National-led government isn’t making any firm commitments like this is down to the principle of, whoever benefits should pay.

Steven Joyce, Simon Bridges and other Ministers have in recent months been talking more about the use of value uplift taxes to help fund new projects – rates will be higher in areas that profit from increased transportation links, for example. These could be residential rates paid by homeowners in areas with improved access to the CBD from a new road, which would have boosted the value of their property. They could also be imposed on commercial businesses that benefit from more foot-traffic due to being closer to, say, a new train station.

The government openly admits that a value uplift tax would have been a perfect fit for Auckland’s inner-city rail loop. But, because the loop was announced before Ministers could start spraying the idea around, they feel it would be a bit rude (think a vote-loser) to suddenly turn around and clamp such a tax on business owners close to where the new stations would be, regardless of the economics.

They have to find a project that hasn’t yet started, and which would clearly benefit the areas linked by the project. Penlink has been talked about. I also give you the Airport-City rail link.

However, Bridges and Joyce are engaged in a stand-off with Auckland Airport. ‘If you come to the table, then we will too.’

Auckland Airport would clearly benefit from any rail link with the city. So, Bridges et al are waiting for them to come to the party. If we’re talking light rail – trams – then Dominion Road businesses and residential properties should also benefit in value uplift.

It’s a stand-off though. If the airport argues against paying more because the benefits won’t be that great, then the government can turn around and say, ‘ok well that’s a good argument for not needing to build the new connection’. If the government just starts funding the link itself, then it runs the risk of no-one else coming to the party. They also don't want to be seen starting the project with inclusion of value-uplift taxes that no-one agrees on - that's not the way this government wants to work.

In effect, the sticking point is a matter of principle. It’s a principled Mexican stand-off. Or a prisoners’ dilemma in a low-security prison.

Water pipe dream

The next stand-off is a key component in Auckland’s housing debate. Water pipes. A couple of weeks ago I wrote about how the National Cabinet would love to take a swipe at the monopolistic, not-for-profit Watercare in Auckland. They’re getting nearer to it.

The Local Government Amendment Act 2002 Amendment Bill (No 2) was introduced last year by former Local Government Minister Peseta Sam Lotu-Iiga. And boy was it popular. The Local Government Select Committee heard nearly 200 submissions on the Bill. They’ve now reported back with amendments. The Bill received a second reading last week.

The stand-off between local and central government on water pipes can best be summed up by a conversation between media and Local Government New Zealand a few weeks back. A lot of New Zealand’s water pipe infrastructure was put in in the 1960s, we were told. Those pipes had an expected lifetime of 60 years, so we’re heading towards an exponential renewals curve over the next 15 years for assets worth over $100 billion.

A couple of the journalists (including this correspondent) were a tad miffed by this. Did local councils know there was only a 60-year life span? “Yeah, they did,” was the reply. ““The renewals curve is not a surprise. But it’s here, now.”

So why haven’t councils planned over those 60 years to put replacement funds aside? The problem, we were told, was that in the 1960s a lot of the pipes were paid for by central government. Now, technically only local government is on the hook. “Under our current funding model, it’s rates and debt [to pay for it]. The issue becomes, is that a sustainable position? Our view is it is not.”

That’s why local government is calling on central government to agree to a co-funding model for the replacement of water pipes nationwide that are coming to the end of their working life (even though this was all known about for 60 years).

I asked Local Government New Zealand chairman Lawrence Yule whether they’d had any indications from central government that this could be done. He said central government had always indicated a willingness to look at it “but only once you’ve made sure what you’re doing currently is being done as efficiently as it can be.”

It’s a stand-off. Local government is refusing to consider how to fund replacement pipes until central government agrees to a co-funding model. Central government won’t agree to a co-funding model until local government gets its own house in order and ensures water services operations are as efficient as possible.

The issue got to a point where central government decided to try and take the initiative. This is where the Local Government Local Government Act Amendment Bill (No 2) comes in. Central government clearly believes things aren’t being done as efficiently as possible.

The Bill will allow various councils to band together to create Transport and Water Council Controlled Organisations (CCOs) to provide services across several local authorities. Scale. It will also give greater scope for re-organisation of CCOs. As now-Local Government Minister Anne Tolley put it in Thursday’s second reading, it provides “an opportunity for the sector to show their local strategic leadership, which may require hard decisions about difficult options in order to secure a positive future for their communities.”

Let’s take Watercare. In its submission on the Bill (co-submitted with Auckland Council), it argued that since its first fully operational year in 2011/12, it has reduced the cost of water delivery to Aucklanders compared the rag-tag pricing run previously by individual councils pre-Super City.

That’s true. The $1.30 per thousand litres was below the range of $1.31-$3.50 encompassing Rodney, North Shore, Waitakere, Auckland, Manukau and Franklin. Job well done. Scale worked. But since then, that cost has risen each year to $1.44 per thousand litres in 2016/17. That’s not what central government (or Auckland residents) wanted to see.

A 2015 Cabinet paper introducing the Amendment Bill reveals what some Cabinet Ministers really wanted to do. The Local Government Minister at the time highlighted the potential benefits of requiring Watercare to have to pay a dividend (“distribute surpluses”) to the Council. This could encourage more efficient pricing of water services and allow it better access to finance.

However, due to the prospect of the move not being supported by “the community,” the idea was not included. Indeed, when the Local Government Select Committee reported the Bill back to the House in June, Section 70 was there prohibiting the distribution of surpluses by water services CCOs.

A pity. There is some exciting stuff in there, though. Central government is aiming to be imposing a number of requirements that I’m told are aimed at drastically changing the way Watercare operates.

The Productivity Commission’s 2016 report, Using Land for Housing, helped. Looking at Watercare from a housing supply lens, the Commission raised a number of concerns and recommendations which will partly be tackled by the Bill.

Firstly, Watercare’s Infrastructure Growth Charges (IGCs) do not recover the full costs of growth (new pipes for new housing), the Commission pointed out. Although initially this could produce benefits for new home buyers not paying the full cost for water infrastructure, deficits will need to be recovered from somewhere. Recovery from existing residents will reduce community acceptance of growth, limiting the supply of infrastructure-enabled land, therefore contributing to higher house prices.

Watercare needed to change how it calculates charges to better reflect the underlying economic costs of supply in different locations and for different types of dwelling, the Commission said. This linked in with criticisms of Watercare’s model of charging flat fees.

“To the extent that certain types of development result in lower infrastructure costs than others, a flat charge will result in a cross-subsidy between different types of dwelling. This might result in a situation in which smaller and more affordable dwellings are cross-subsidising larger standalone dwellings.”

The Bill requires Watercare to shift away from the IGC model to a development contribution model. It has until 30 June 2018 at the latest to figure out how to best make the switch.

Meanwhile, the Commission urged Watercare to consider development agreements, which would enable private developers to take responsibility for building trunk infrastructure. It referenced research that developers may be able to provide infrastructure solutions at lower costs than Watercare, particularly due to ‘over specification’ required by Watercare.

“Watercare notes that development agreements have a range of advantages (eg, they provide a mechanism for bringing in private capital into the provision of public infrastructure) and disadvantages (eg, the time required to prepare and finalise the agreements, especially if more than one developer/landowner is involved). The obligation to consider requests from a developer to enter into development agreements and provide the developer with a written response would not compel Watercare and other CCOs to enter agreements where there are good reasons not to. But a requirement to set out in writing why a development agreement may not proceed would provide clarity and transparency about the reasons for the decision.”

The Bill doesn’t appear to go as far as the Commission would have hoped, but it does provide legislation for Watercare to be able to enter into development agreements.

Finally, the Commission appeared horrified that for both Auckland Transport and Watercare, “supply of infrastructure to support growth is not reflected in either organisation’s performance measures.”

“While the primary accountability documents for Watercare and Auckland Transport (the Statements of Intents) are broadly aligned with the Auckland Plan vision, they do not give effect to the specific objective in the Auckland Plan to increase the city’s supply of new dwellings,” it said.

“Auckland Transport and Watercare’s SOIs should be amended to include performance measures relating to the efficient roll-out of new infrastructure to support an increased supply of new dwellings.

“The regulatory and institutional framework around the water sector can be improved. Discipline and transparency around the pricing of water services, and better performance monitoring, would improve the ability of the water sector to support urban growth,” the Commission said.

The Bill includes provision for Council input on CCO statements of intent and for performance monitoring. Each CCO – ie Watercare – must provide its shareholders the opportunity to influence the direction of the organisation, and must provide a basis for the accountability of the directors to their shareholders for the performance of the organisation.

And that performance monitoring? A local authority must undertake regular performance monitoring to evaluate a CCO’s contribution to the achievement of the authority’s objectives for the organisation, the desired results set out in its SOI and the overall aims and outcomes of the local authority.

What’s yet to be seen, however, is whether the changes would have such an effect as to fix the pending funding crisis for water pipe replacement and extension. I would think not. But with this Bill, central and local government will both be able to tap the argument that councils and their organisations have reached, or will soon reach efficiency limits.

And that’s the trigger for central government coming to the funding party.

Crafting has been a staple of MMOs and the Elder Scrolls games for quite some time. The ability to create weapons and armor is both a boon to players who like to suit up before adventuring, or to shrewd homebodies who use their talents to amass small fortunes by selling their wares. A new developer walkthrough shows how blacksmithing works in The Elder Scrolls Online.

Not all crafting stations are created equally in The Elder Scrolls Online, unlike past Elder Scrolls games. Players who want to create particularly powerful gear or items in a set will have to discover special stations hidden deep within ruins. As the video shows, these ruins are often protected by fierce beasts and other hazards. Once inside, smiths can tackle these specialized pieces of equipment. Skilled characters have a greater chance of getting the most from their creations, though lower-level talents can give it a shot  – while running the risk of ruining their creation in the process.

          New Trailer For The Elder Scrolls Online, Imperial Edition Confirmed   

A new trailer for Zenimax Online Studios’ upcoming Elder Scrolls MMO, comes alongside confirmation of yesterday’s reports of an Imperial Edition. Now we have the specific details of what’s included.

The premium package for Bethesda’s The Elder Scrolls Online comes with a 12 inch statue of Daedric prince Molag Bal, a key antagonist in the game, a map of Tamriel, unique packaging, and a number of digital elements. With the Imperial Edition, you’ll gain access to a white horse, a mudcrab pet, and the Rings of Mara in-game item that awards an experience bonus.

The Imperial Edition is also the only way to play as the Imperial race. Additionally, all pre-orders will have access to the Explorer’s Pack. This ensures that any characters you create can join any alliance regardless of race, a Scutter pet, and four digital treasure maps.

The video below is a cinematic fight around a "dark anchor" point. We saw one of these events unfold in-game in a recent video. The Imperial Edition is priced at $99.99. A digital version (without the statue and map) is available directly from Bethesda and some retailers for $79.99. Those that purchase either the digital standard or Imperial edition from Bethesda and select other retailers will get access five days before the rest of the public.

The Elder Scrolls Online will be available for PC and Mac on April 4, 2014. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions are coming in June.


          See The Elder Scrolls Online Developers Take On Group Content   

Three Zenimax Online Studios leads on the ambitious The Elder Scrolls Online have come together to demonstrate why teaming up in Tamriel is a good idea. The video features creative director Paul Sage, lead gameplay designer Nick Konkle, and dungeon lead Dan Crenshaw.

The video begins with two of the party members, a mage and healer, taking on an enemy. Following that, we get a look at the fast travel options that enable parties to more easily find one another. Wayshrines allow players to teleport directly to others in the group.

The main attraction is a “dark anchor” encounter, during which Daedric prince Molag Bal attempts to pull the mortal plane into his own world. Cultists, sacrifices, and waves of enemies are on display as the trio dislodges the anchor from Tamriel.

A couple of things we noticed is how fluidly combat moves, regardless of which point of view is in play. Additionally, the hallmarks of Elder Scrolls gameplay, especially stealth and the flexibility of character builds have been translated into the MMO.

The Elder Scrolls Online launches first on PC and Mac on April 4. Xbox One and PlayStation 4 releases will come later. For more on The Elder Scrolls Online, you can check out our coverage from the June 2012 issue and read a journal of our time with the game at Gamescom 2013.

Nothing but bones

Monsters are an exciting thing to see in a movie.  They are not so thrilling in your application architecture.  I recently came up with (or at least I think I came up with) a term for architectures that are put together with mismatching parts and in ways the software gods never intended: Frankenstein Architectures.  A co-worker then evolved that to Frankentechture.

Of course the designer of a framework or an application platform can’t envision every possible use of their creation.  How do you know then when you are just using it in a new and inventive way and when you are creating a Frankenstein monster?  Read the documentation of the author’s intent, see where it performs best and where the maintenance story is the best and then don’t stray far from those boundaries.

Another thing to think about is if you are using patterns just because you read them in a book and it sounded good?  Are you adding them to the application just because you saw them at the latest conference?  Are you spending days and weeks finding ways to get around the limitations of pattern? Do your developers require a 500 level course to make a simple change to your code base?  If you answered yes to any of these then you might have brought a Frankentechture to life.

There is a time and place for adding complex patterns or work around for a limitation in a framework to your solution.  Before you do that though, ask yourself if the problem might be that you are using the wrong toolset or have wrong design pattern for your situation.  If you can identify this as a possible problem early in the development process your can save yourself a lot of grey hair and your company a lot in maintenance costs.

So my call to action is to question every design decision.  Apply the YAGNI principle where ever possible and don’t add complexity before you have a compelling reason to do so.  Choose the architectural components that work well together and best suit your requirements.  If you do this you can assemble a hero instead of a monster.


          Everything Isn’t Fixed With Another Layer Of Abstraction   

Originally posted on: http://brustblog.net/archive/2015/02/18/everything-isnrsquot-fixed-with-another-layer-of-abstraction.aspx

ChurchillWood20141020 (24)_1

Many developers say with a sarcastic tone “You can fix any problem with another layer of abstraction”.  The question is if there is any truth to this.  While abstraction can increase reuse, flexibility and testability it comes with a cost of complexity in readability and maintainability.  If a developer has to spend a week learning how all the pieces of an application are put together there better be a payoff.  Always ask yourself “what do we gain” when adding a new factory or dependency injection?  Is there a proper return on investment?  I’m not saying don’t add abstraction layers.  Be pragmatic about it.

Every pattern has its place, but don’t overuse them.  If the requirement of your application is to be able to dynamically plug in a nearly infinite number of modules then a set of interfaces and a generic dependency injection approach might be the way to go, but don’t start there.  If that requirement isn’t there don’t use patterns and abstraction layers because you “could, possibly, maybe” need it at some point in the future.  Live by the rule “You’re not going to need it”.

I don’t know how many times I have seen code where there is a layer in between your business and data layer that does nothing but call the data layer and pass it back to the business layer without adding any value.  Each piece of code needs to have a purpose.  If you can’t explain what that purpose is then you need to refactor it out.

Walk through your code and see how many times you need a cheat sheet to know what object you are referencing or what the business purpose of a piece of code is.  If you are confused by your own code you may have gone too far.  Have someone else walk through your code and see what questions they have and how long it takes them to understand what you have built.

At some point in the future your code will have to be maintained either for enhancements or bug fixes.  Consider how much effort those changes will cost in time and effort.  Do those costs fit with the requirements of your business?  The lesson I would hope to impart is that abstractions should be used and not abused.  Keep this in mind as you design and it may just save your sanity.


          What Is A Software Architect’s Job Today?

WP_20131025_09_58_56_1

It was 2001 when a project manager first put my job title as architect on a statement of work.  A lot has changed over the last twelve years.  The concepts around what an architect is has evolved.  In the early days I would have said that they just rebranded the role of the system analyst.  Now we have a multitude of architect titles: application, solution, IT, data, enterprise.  Whatever the title the goals are the same.  An architect takes the business needs and maps them to the solutions that are needed and at the same time works to ensure the quality of the solution and its maintainability.

One of the problems I see these days is that we are expecting every developer to have architect skills.  That in itself is not a problem.  This reduces the need for dedicated architects.  Not every developer though is going to be able to step up to this level.  Some are just good at solving small problems instead of thinking in the larger abstract.

Another problem is the accelerating speed and breadth of new technologies and products.  For an architect to be good at his job he needs to spend large amounts of personal time studying just to stay relevant.

In the end I don’t think the main objectives of an architect has changed, just the level of commitment needed to stay of value to your company.  Renew your commitment to your profession and keep delivering great solutions.


          Yet Another “Why Waterfall Doesn’t Work” Post

WP_20130611_001_1

Lately I have been plunged back into an extreme waterfall project and it is eating away at my soul.  Don’t get me wrong.  I don’t really believe in a soul and I have never done a text book agile project, but the longer I’m on this project the more I feel like I’m in an infinite loop.  Document.  Review.  Document. Review.  At some point we may do some coding.

The biggest problem with waterfall projects is that you can always add more detail to design documents.  I have actually seen some documentation which had pseudo code for almost every line that the developer needs to type.  Of course these are extreme cases, but they put a spotlight on the issue.

All of this would be less costly to refactor as we code than it would be to continue to refine the design document.  A minimum of documentation to make sure we hit all the key requirements and make sure that the overall architecture is sound is really what a project needs.  Spend your time finding the problems by writing code instead of theorizing and discussing.

Moral: Waterfalls are pretty to look at, not run projects with.


          What Software Architects Can Learn From Baseball Teams   

Originally posted on: http://brustblog.net/archive/2013/05/29/what-software-architects-can-learn-from-baseball-teams.aspx

WhiteSox20130513_81_1

My friend Larry Calrkin did a whole series on Architecture by Baseball, but after going to a recent White Sox game I got to thinking about the how baseball mirrors my experience.  For me it boils down to specialization, team work and leadership.

Every team member has their specialty.  Infielders have great reactions and throwing accuracy.  Outfielders can cover distance quickly and throw long distances.  There are starting pitchers who have great control and endurance and closers who throw nasty pitches for a short time.  Likewise, there are specialized positions on a development team.  There are UI developers who improve the user experience.  Your have performance experts who can find every potential roadblock in a a piece of code.  Then there are security specialists, database gurus and product experts.  Each specialist has something to add to the quality of the final product.  As an architect you need to give each of these specialists room to do what they do best.

This then leads to team work.  You can have a team of great specialists, but if they don’t come together as a team it can mean failure.  If baseball players don’t communicate you end up with errors that can gift wrap runs for the opposing team.  The problem with a software team is that the opposing teams are called missed requirements, missed deadlines and poor quality software.  As an architect we can help identify which of our specialists are best to attack a particular problem and also help the entire team understand how their tasks fit into accomplishing the project.  This helps to bring the team’s focus together instead of working as individuals.

Who brings all this together?  The manager is the leader on the field.  I look at this position being where the architect works.  Yes there is a project manager, but I think of them as the general manager who clear the way so the manager can get the goals of the team accomplished.  The architect should be the person who brings the team together and gives it direction.  I also believe it is part of my job as an architect to help the developers on my projects to improve their code quality and the way they interact with stakeholders.  Leading also means being willing to build proof of concepts or even taking on coding components so that your team members understand that you really practice what you preach.

Ultimately you need know as much as you can about every position, leverage your specialist like pitching and hitting coaches to fill in missing information, bring your players together to win and be a leader on the field.  Good luck.

          Entrevista com Jens Bergesten   

O Minecraft Forum (gringo) teve a oportunidade de entrevistar Jens Bergensten, na "Game Developer Mojang", sobre uma variedade de temas, incluindo o tão esperado Adventure Update (1.8) altamente antecipado! O portal minecraft disponibiliza a entrevista aqui  


MCF: Quando você começou a se interessar no desenvolvimento de jogos?
Jeb:Não tenho certeza, na verdade, eu era muito jovem. Eu sempre gostei dos jogos que tinham editores de mapa. Lembro-me de um vizinho que tinha um criador de jogos do estilo shoot'em'up para o C64, tinha inveja. Fiz centenas de mapas para "Lode Runner" e para o antigo "Apple", no entanto.
MCF: Qual seria seu seu maior desafio com o desenvolvimento de Minecraft?
Jeb:Até agora a maioria das coisas têm sido bastante simples, mas estou realmente "lutando"  contra os NPCs e dungeons. É difícil adicionar novos "objetivos" para Minecraft.
MCF: Com ou sem detalhes, você já se inspirou na comunidade, no que diz respeito à direção de desenvolvimento?
Jeb:Claro, mas eu não me lembro de nada específico no momento.

Sobre o Adventure Update (1.8)
MCF: Se você pudesse resumir o update em uma frase, qual seria?
Jeb:Exploração, eu acho.
MCF: Há alguma característica específica da atualização que você pode nos contar?
Jeb:Você pode obter carne de boi. agora.
MCF: Alguns usuários manifestaram o desejo de fazer coisas como aldeias NPC opcionalmente - nenhum plano para isso?

Jeb:Sim, já opcional.


MCF: Se você pudesse escolher algo (a partir da próxima atualização) como o seu recurso favorito, qual seria?
Jeb:Eu gosto de novas estruturas e biomas, porque eu realmente gosto de explorar o mundo. Uma vez que nós começamos a trabalhar nos NPCs, eu provavelmente irei desfrutar de negociação também.
MCF: Houve uma menção sobre um sistema de nivelamento recentemente - pode dar detalhes sobre isso?
Jeb:Nós apenas falamos vagamente sobre isso ... Está na mesa do Notch no momento.
MCF: Existem detalhes sobre os novos NPCs que você pode nos dizer? Haverá facções, alianças, etc?
Jeb:Não. ..
MCF: screenshots recentes parecem mostrar uma barra de fome e que pode ser uma barra de stamina ou XP - você pode nos contar um pouco sobre isso?

Jeb:A barra de alimentos / fome é recarregado imediatamente quando você come algo (que leva 1,6 segundo). Se sua barra de comida está no 90%, você irá recuperar sua saúde lentamente, mas se você tiver no 0%, você irá perder a saúde, em compensação. A "barra de stamina" é a barra de XP, e mostra o seu progresso e o nível do jogador.
MCF: Parece que as dungeons serão muito diferentes depois do update 1.8, você pode nos contar um pouco sobre elas?
Jeb:As dungeons antigas ainda permanecem, estas são apenas maiores, com corredores, portas e escadas.
MCF: Sprinting (corrida)  tem sido um tópico quente com jogadores recentemente - o que você pode nos dizer sobre isso?
Jeb:Você pode dar o sprint tocando duas vezes para a frente. É muito bom, mas precisa ser melhor sincronizado no multiplayer.
MCF: Houve um teasers sugerindo alguns mobs novos (incluindo a Endermen inlusive) - o que você pode nos dizer sobre isso?
Jeb:Prefiro não comentar =)

Bem, esta entrevista pode revalar algumas coisas, estamos ansiosos pelo 1.8.

          Developing and Evaluating Digital Interventions to Promote Behavior Change in Health and Health Care: Recommendations Resulting From an International Workshop   
Devices and programs using digital technology to foster or support behavior change (digital interventions) are increasingly ubiquitous, being adopted for use in patient diagnosis and treatment, self-management of chronic diseases, and in primary prevention. They have been heralded as potentially revolutionizing the ways in which individuals can monitor and improve their health behaviors and health care by improving outcomes, reducing costs, and improving the patient experience. However, we are still mainly in the age of promise rather than delivery. Developing and evaluating these digital interventions presents new challenges and new versions of old challenges that require use of improved and perhaps entirely new methods for research and evaluation. This article discusses these challenges and provides recommendations aimed at accelerating the rate of progress in digital behavior intervention research and practice. Areas addressed include intervention development in a rapidly changing technological landscape, promoting user engagement, advancing the underpinning science and theory, evaluating effectiveness and cost-effectiveness, and addressing issues of regulatory, ethical, and information governance. This article is the result of a two-day international workshop on how to create, evaluate, and implement effective digital interventions in relation to health behaviors. It was held in London in September 2015 and was supported by the United Kingdom’s Medical Research Council (MRC), the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), the Methodology Research Programme (PI Susan Michie), and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation of the United States (PI Kevin Patrick). Important recommendations to manage the rapid pace of change include considering using emerging techniques from data science, machine learning, and Bayesian approaches and learning from other disciplines including computer science and engineering. With regard to assessing and promoting engagement, a key conclusion was that sustained engagement is not always required and that for each intervention it is useful to establish what constitutes “effective engagement,” that is, sufficient engagement to achieve the intended outcomes. The potential of digital interventions for testing and advancing theories of behavior change by generating ecologically valid, real-time objective data was recognized. Evaluations should include all phases of the development cycle, designed for generalizability, and consider new experimental designs to make the best use of rich data streams. Future health economics analyses need to recognize and model the complex and potentially far-reaching costs and benefits of digital interventions. In terms of governance, developers of digital behavior interventions should comply with existing regulatory frameworks, but with consideration for emerging standards around information governance, ethics, and interoperability.

          Tracing the Potential Flow of Consumer Data: A Network Analysis of Prominent Health and Fitness Apps   
Background: A great deal of consumer data, collected actively through consumer reporting or passively through sensors, is shared among apps. Developers increasingly allow their programs to communicate with other apps, sensors, and Web-based services, which are promoted as features to potential users. However, health apps also routinely pose risks related to information leaks, information manipulation, and loss of information. There has been less investigation into the kinds of user data that developers are likely to collect, and who might have access to it. Objective: We sought to describe how consumer data generated from mobile health apps might be distributed and reused. We also aimed to outline risks to individual privacy and security presented by this potential for aggregating and combining user data across apps. Methods: We purposively sampled prominent health and fitness apps available in the United States, Canada, and Australia Google Play and iTunes app stores in November 2015. Two independent coders extracted data from app promotional materials on app and developer characteristics, and the developer-reported collection and sharing of user data. We conducted a descriptive analysis of app, developer, and user data collection characteristics. Using structural equivalence analysis, we conducted a network analysis of sampled apps’ self-reported sharing of user-generated data. Results: We included 297 unique apps published by 231 individual developers, which requested 58 different permissions (mean 7.95, SD 6.57). We grouped apps into 222 app families on the basis of shared ownership. Analysis of self-reported data sharing revealed a network of 359 app family nodes, with one connected central component of 210 app families (58.5%). Most (143/222, 64.4%) of the sampled app families did not report sharing any data and were therefore isolated from each other and from the core network. Fifteen app families assumed more central network positions as gatekeepers on the shortest paths that data would have to travel between other app families. Conclusions: This cross-sectional analysis highlights the possibilities for user data collection and potential paths that data is able to travel among a sample of prominent health and fitness apps. While individual apps may not collect personally identifiable information, app families and the partners with which they share data may be able to aggregate consumer data, thus achieving a much more comprehensive picture of the individual consumer. The organizations behind the centrally connected app families represent diverse industries, including apparel manufacturers and social media platforms that are not traditionally involved in health or fitness. This analysis highlights the potential for anticipated and voluntary but also possibly unanticipated and involuntary sharing of user data, validating privacy and security concerns in mobile health.

          Sony Will Start Making Vinyl Records Again In Japan, After A Nearly 30-Year Hiatus   
Sony Music is preparing to make its own vinyl records again in Japan, in another sign that albums are back from the brink of being obsolete. The company says it's installing record-cutting equipment and enlisting the help of older engineers who know how to reproduce the best sound. Vinyl sales have seen a resurgence since around 2008. And while records are still a small part of the market, the fact that in 2016, "a format nearly a century old generated 3.6 percent of total global revenues is remarkable," as NPR's Andrew Flanagan has reported. Years of double-digit growth in record sales have left vinyl press plants in the U.S., Japan and elsewhere struggling to meet demand. Sony's plan reportedly includes the possibility that it will press records on contract. As the creator of the Walkman and a co-developer of the CD format, Sony helped to end the era of vinyl albums. And while sales of digital music have been hit in recent years by the popularity of streaming audio on Spotify,

          LinkedIn Wishlist - Part I: User Generated Search Tags to Create Narrow Searching, Keyword Channels for Profiles, & Virtual Directory of Interest Groups   

This post is actually posted in February 04, 2008. Reposting the article here as a reference for my new upcoming article: LinkedIn Wishlist - Part II: LinkedIn Profile and Page Features.

LinkedIn Wishlist - Part I: User Generated Search Tags to Create Narrow Searching, Keyword Channels for Profiles, & Virtual Directory of Interest Groups

Dear LinkedIn,

Being an open networker, I always try to help my connection by forwarding relevant news, articles, resources, etc. in my network. To do so, I forward mails to the appropriate members in my network by searching them and adding them one by one. 

But, I think Other Filtering Option should be used to make the forwarding mails more useful by sending them to appropriate people. Currently, you can only filter by location and industry. But, there are many custom searches we can make in our contacts and group them as per our need.

Therefore, I would like to suggest User Generated Search Tags. Search Tag is similar to Blog Tags and Interest Group Tags in Blogger Profile. However this can be used to tag people with appropriate keywords. XING is already using this type of tags. You can actually use this tag for various purposes:

Search Tags for Narrow Searching

Use the tags for creating narrow search of LinkedIn connection. You can provide the tag option as narrow search for forwarding any mail. To create the tags, the users will do a people search and tick/check the appropriate people and write a tag for them. e.g. If someone searches for “SAP Developers” in people search, he will be able to choose by clicking on the check box on the basis of his judgment on the summary and then grossly mark the checked profiles with a generic tag, like “SAP Developers”. And when s/he wants to send mails to people within this search tag, s/he will be able to send it by choosing the tags defined by the user. Again, if anyone joins the network with similar People Search Attribute, then s/he will be automatically tagged.

Profile Tags for Keyword Channeling

You can use this User Generated Search Tags like XING, i.e. show it in their public profile. This will also automatically create Keyword Channels for the Profiles. This will enhance the Search Engine Rankings for each profile, since Google &amp; other Search Engines like Keyword Channels (or simply Anchor Texts). You can also use Tag Cloud Option to show most popular tags in bold and least popular tags in plain text. I believe that Tags from people will actually represent what people are saying about you. And this will also allow members to top the Rank in People Search and establish them to stay ahead of the industry or Keyword Channel. If anyone is ranked 1st, 2nd or 3rd for the Profile Keyword Tag, then he can be rewarded with a badge. I believe that this will encourage people to promote their profile instead of their personal sites.

Tags for Virtual Directory of Interest Groups

If the tags are clickable tags, then you can virtually have Directories of Professionals channeled with Keyword Tags. Besides groups in LinkedIn, this will also create Virtual Interest Groups within LinkedIn, rather than an actual group. These tags can be further utilized for User Profile-based PPC Campaign like Facebook.

Update: This tags are more like the Google Plus Friend Circles that allows you to send updates to a specific types of people. When some one sends a Job notification for SEO Manager, it is pretty hard to find the right people and forward them the notification.

          Facebook Optimization (FBO) or Facebook SEO - New Social Media Optimization (SMO) for Your Site   

Event: F8 Developer Conference
Date: April 21, 2010
Place: San Francisco, California

The F8 Developer Conference has determined a new fate for Facebook. Previously, all the activities of Facebook were behind the great blue and white walled garden. But, after the introduction of Facebook Connect, activities spread beyond the blue & white garden and after the F8 Summit, the spread became widespread.

Open Graph Protocol was introduced in the event. Facebook has planned to use the properties of the non-profit organization in various ways to make the web more social as well as semantic.

So, a new form of Social Media Optimization (SMO) has evolved which is called Open Graph Optimization (OGO). Well, let’s call it OGO or Website Optimization for Open Graph Protocol. But, this is not the only thing  for Facebook Optimization. Facebook Optimization consists of several other technique you can employ for your site to perform well in the social media.

Objective of Facebook Optimization

According to the source of the activity in Facebook, you can classify them into 2 separate categories, viz.

  1. Internal Activity (Link): Link sharing instance that happens on Facebook.com
  2. External Activity (Like): Facebook Like button press activity that happens over external sites

Internal Activity - Link

Internal Activity for Facebook Optimization (FBO)

The internal activity refers to the link sharing on Facebook using http://www.facebook.com/share.php or any other widget or tools. Internal link sharing was the oldest reason to have your website optimized for Facebok. Please scroll below to see the old technique for Facebook Optimization.

External Activity - Like

External Activity for Facebook Optimization (FBO)

Previously, Facebook was very much within walls. But, with like button and Open Graph Meta Tags, there are many external activities.

These two activities are also the major objectives for Facebook Optimization for 2010. But, I can prophecise that more things will come in near future. However, it will still be possible to categorize their activity into these 2 major categories.

Open Graph Meta Tag Myth (No Like Button, No OG Meta)

There is a myth that you don’t need Open Graph Meta Tags if you don’t plan to use the Like Button. But, what happens if you share the link through various sharing plugin (e.g. Hootlet), Share Button or the link sharing page in Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/share.php)?

When you share a link in Facebook, the Link Share Interface collects the Page Title, URL, Meta Description, and a random image. But, if you have Open Graph Meta Tags in place, then the Page Title is replaced with og:title, Meta Description with og:description, and the random image with og:image. So, with the Open Graph Meta tag, you have the control to place the right description, title, and image to attract more Clickthrough.

Old Link Sharing Optimization Technique

Before the Like Button and Open Graph Meta, Link Sharing Optimization was the only thing you could do to optimize your site for Facebook. Facebook also had the documentation for that. But, they have recently moved it. You are right, they brought in Open Graph Meta Data. So, the old technique was void.

But here is a glimplse of the old optimization meta data and the description inside the meta tags:

Common Meta Tags

<meta name="title" content="The title you want to appear in Facebook when someone shares your link" />
<meta name="description" content="The same description of SEO Meta Description optimized also for Facebook Sharing" />
<meta name="medium" content="medium_type: audio, image, video, news or blog (any one)" />
<link rel="image_src" href="The URL of the thumbnail image you want to share in Facebook" />

Audio Meta Tags

<link rel="audio_src" href="The audio source URL" />
<meta name="audio_type" content="mp3 (or others)" />
<meta name="audio_title" content="Title of The Song or Audio" />
<meta name="audio_artist" content="Name of the Artists/Speaker/Singer" />
<meta name="audio_album" content="The Name of the Album" />

Video Meta Tag

<link rel="video_src" href="The URL of the video" />
<meta name="video_height" content="200 (or any pixel you like)" />
<meta name="video_width" content="300 (or any pixel you like)" />
<meta name="video_type" content="application/x-shockwave-flash (or others)" />

These old meta tags still work, but it is always good to go with the wind and embrace Open Graph Meta Tags. You can read more about it here.

Facebook Optimization (FBO) Preparation

Open graph and Facebook tags are one of the tags that are not certified by W3C Consortium. So, you might get W3C errors if you use the tags. In some cases you might not be able to get the right utility you want. So, for that you need to add these two lines as attribute to the first <html> section, that should look like this:

<html lang="en-US" xml:lang="en-US" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xmlns:og="http://opengraphprotocol.org/schema/" xmlns:fb="http://developers.facebook.com/schema/">

The added attributes are:

xmlns:og="http://opengraphprotocol.org/schema/"
xmlns:fb="http://developers.facebook.com/schema/"

Open Graph Meta Tags

Open Graph Meta Tags are currently used for making sharing the links and also for the like button. Open Graph has been adopted by Facebook for it’s social graph purposes.

According to the Open Graph Protocol site:

The Open Graph protocol enables any web page to become a rich object in a social graph. For instance, this is used on Facebook to enable any web page to have the same functionality as a Facebook Page.

According to the Open Graph Protocol, several new Meta tags came into being for making your site optimized for the giant social media, Facebook.

Here is a glimpse of the new generation Meta tags:

Basic Open Graph Meta Tags

<meta property="og:title" content="A Good Title that can Attract More Clickthrough (within 100 characters)"/>
<meta property="og:type" content="blog or website (visit Open Graph Protocol site for more names of types)"/>
<meta property="og:url" content="The URL of the Article"/>
<meta property="og:image" content="The URL of the image you want to share in Facebook (usually square images perform well)"/>
<meta property="og:site_name" content="The Name of Your Site. If this is not available, then Like Button press will show someone likes yoursite.com"/>
<meta property="og:description" content=" Clickthrough (CTR) is the key. But, og:title should be most attractive. And you can also put more attracting messages in <150 character description.”/>

Open Graph Meta Tags for Contact Information & Location

<meta property="og:email" content="yourname@yoursite.com"/>
<meta property="og:phone_number" content="212-904-1240 "/>
<meta property="og:latitude" content="40.705213143114925"/>
<meta property="og:longitude" content="-74.01103019714355"/>
<meta property="og:street-address" content="55 Broad Street"/>
<meta property="og:locality" content="New York"/>
<meta property="og:region" content="NY"/>
<meta property="og:postal-code" content="10004"/>
<meta property="og:country-name" content="USA"/>

Facebook Meta Tags

Other than Open Graph Meta Tags, there are some special meta tags by Facebook that you need to use for claiming administrative powers, view Facebook Insights, and connect the External Activities with your Facebook Page.

Facebook Admin Meta Tag

<meta property="fb:admins" content="your.fb.id"/>

Please note, this meta tag does not start with fb: instead of og:, because it is a meta tag specific to Facebook, not Open Graph. In this meta tag, you can specify the name of the admins that can have insights of the site activity. Adding multiple admins never hurt.

While mentioning the admins in the meta, you can use the user name that is followed by Facebook.com (e.g. http://www.facebook.com/user.name). However, if your profile looks like this: http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1234567890, then you can use 1234567890 as admin value. To find this number, you can use http://apps.facebook.com/whatismyid/ or open any album on your profile and if the URL looks like this: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?id=1234567890, then 1234567890 is your admin ID.

Using this meta tag helps you to get admin access to the page in Facebook and change and update various contents. 

Facebook Page ID Meta Tag

<meta property="fb:page_id" content="####### (The number of your page)"/>

When you have both internal and external activity going on for Facebook, it is hard for Facebook to identify which page is connected with the You can also get access to Facebook Insights for the page. Facebook Insights is the Web Analytics for Facebook.

Facebook Insights Preview

Facebook App ID Meta Tag

<meta property="fb:app_id" content="####### (The number of your app)"/>

This allows you to utilize the app engine of Facebook for your site. You can create an app from http://developers.facebook.com/setup/. You can associate your website with your app. In the comma-separated list, you have to mention the app(s) that administers the page.

This is an introductory part of the Facebook SEO aka Facebook Optimization. I’ll come up with more details in another blog. Also Blueliner has plans for a free webinar on best practices for Facebook Optimization aka Facebook SEO. Please follow the blog to get the updates.

          Renaissance Zone Debate Sees Revival   
By The Bismarck Tribune
Changes to North Dakota’s downtown development incentives drew attention in a Senate committee last week. Supporters of the tax breaks pushed back against the notion that most of the benefit went to the state’s larger cities.

The bill under consideration in the Senate Finance and Tax committee would end the income tax exemption for developers of property in Renaissance Zones.

Rep. Rick Becker, a Bismarck Republican, argued that the income tax exemptions aren’t appropriate, since the loss of revenue has to be made up statewide. The other incentives, property tax exemptions, are made up locally.

The argument resonated in the House, which passed the bill, HB1182, by a vote of 48-41.

The hearing before the Senate Finance and Tax Committee didn’t focus on the philosophical argument, however, but on the economic impact.

And much of it came from small towns.

Carol Goodman, Cavalier County Jobs Development Authority, argued that the income tax exemption helped attract developers for the 66 projects approved in Langdon, the county seat. That’s more projects than in much larger cities, such as Grand Forks, which has 53 approved projects. It also rivals the number of projects in Watford City, an oil boom town, which has 67, and in West Fargo, the state’s fastest-growing community, which has 73 projects.

Statewide, a total of 55 communities have Renaissance Zone projects, according to Rikki Roehrich, Renaissance Zone program manager for the state Department of Commerce. Fargo has the most, 210. The cities of Cavalier, Hillsboro, Lakota, Munich and Park River have one each. Hope, population 258, has 13.

In her testimony, Roehrich argued that taxing income from leases would have a statewide impact.

“While lease projects can be a great tool to attract a diverse commercial base in downtown cities, we should not forget that these projects often serve to simply retain or allow for smaller rural communities to attract businesses that provide vital services to their population,” she said.

“Without the lease and leasehold improvement tax incentives, I believe you will see a substantial drop in the number of leases and commercial projects in downtown districts across the state. Those in less populated areas may never happen and those in the larger cities may move to the city’s peripheries, where rent is less expensive.”

Roehrich also warned that the legislation could affect other development incentives, including the historic preservation and renovation tax credit.

Fargo City Commissioner Dave Piepkorn said the incentives had a major impact on downtown Fargo. ESPN wouldn’t have brought its Game Day programs to a “dilapidated downtown,” he said, and Fargo and the state would have missed out on the favorable publicity the programs generated.

Borrowing a sports analogy, he urged, “Let’s keep running the football.”

Bernie Dardis, a Fargo businessman, told the committee that the incentives have ramifications.

“When you go to downtown Fargo, you don’t get to eat where you want to, drink where you want to or park where you want to," he said of the busy downtown Renaissance Zone.

Opponents of the incentives pushed the policy question: Is it fair to ask voters statewide to make up the taxes lost through these incentives?

That’s what the Senate must decide. Senators could pass the bill, sending it to Gov. Doug Burgum, who has benefited from Renaissance Zone tax exemptions. They could kill it, ending the issue for this session, at least. Or they could amend it. The last would force a conference committee with the House.

          Inside Fargo, America's Most Undervalued Tech Hub   
By Fortune
Editor's Note: Congratulations to the many Fargo-area businesses mentioned in this article. Many of them have participate in ND Commerce programs such as Innovate ND, Centers of Excellence and Centers of Research Excellence, Research ND and the North Dakota Development Fund.

It gets 50 inches of snow a year and is so cold that its bikeshare moves inside for the winter. But its homegrown tech community is on fire.

The morning of Nov. 12, 2014 was well below freezing in Fargo, the largest city in North Dakota. By the time Shawn Muehler took the stage before an audience of 150, the theater, located just a few blocks west of the Red River, had warmed up. Entrepreneurs, students, professors and business leaders shuffled down the aisles with free cups of coffee. For the audience, it was time for Fargo’s 1 Million Cups, a robust startup community-building initiative from the Kaufman Foundation that’s a kind of church for entrepreneurs. For Muehler, it was time to talk about drones.

Standing on stage with one of his drones, Muehler—a Fargo native, Air Force officer, and seasoned pilot—had six minutes to present his business idea, the result of several months of white-board calculating, late-night brainstorming, and endless code tinkering. He described the collision risks found in an airspace that is increasingly crowded with aircraft and drones. The software that he and his small team of pilots, developers, and engineers wanted to build, he explained, would create a safety net for drone pilots, enabling them to track their unmanned vehicles in real time using existing cellular networks.

Muehler’s presentation was followed by vigorous applause and a round of questions. As is tradition at 1 Million Cups, the entrepreneur was asked one final query: “How can we as a community help you succeed?” And so he answered. Within five days, Muehler tells Fortune, he had five funding opportunities from people in the community. The ensuing $500,000 seed investment allowed him to double his workforce and move to a larger office downtown.

Last spring the company, now called Botlink, launched the beta version of its drone-tracking application, which it says is the world’s first commercially available drone safety and control platform. In June, Botlink announced a joint venture with Fargo’s power management company, Packet Digital, to raise $15 million on the same day that it co-hosted Fargo’s inaugural Drone Focus Conference. By this fall, the company had launched its first product: a piece of data-processing hardware that’s compatible with every drone on the market.

When I visited the Botlink office in September, the staff had just returned from a drone conference in Las Vegas where they’d run out of brochures the first day and flummoxed some West Coast startups who didn’t realize they had competitors in Fargo. Half-empty containers of drones now littered the floor around the reception desk, making the office look like the home of a robot family unpacking from a long trip. In the workshop down the hall, a plane with a 14-foot wingspan sat on a desk, and Muehler, wearing a Batman t-shirt, was one of the first to tell me what makes Fargo special.

Well before I arrived in Fargo, I’d heard about Silicon Prairie—the Heartland’s version of Silicon Valley—with noteworthy startup activity in larger cities like Omaha, Des Moines, and Kansas City. I knew Fargo was on the eastern border of the state, far from the oil activity in the Bakken region. I’d read that it’s home to the country’s third-largest Microsoft  MSFT 0.65% campus and nearly 30,000 college students. The average age of Fargo residents is 31. Its unemployment rate is among the lowest in the nation. I had already grasped enough about this city of 105,000 to easily dismiss the Siberia-esque picture painted in the 1996 Coen brothers film of the same name. I envisioned a burst of Technicolor popping from a vast expanse of plains.

The tech scene that I visited in September was markedly different from the one I had first heard about in 2013. Two years ago Emerging Prairie, a startup news and events organization, was beginning to establish itself; today it co-organizes wildly popular events such as 1 Million Cups, TEDxFargo, and a monthly gathering called Startup Drinks. Thanks to local startup Myriad Mobile, which spun out of a student-run incubator, Fargo has begun hosting the annual Midwest Mobile Summit. A nonprofit has started offering coding classes for women. Meetups have launched for hackers, gamers, developers, geeks, and even bitcoin enthusiasts.

Fargo companies are also beginning to appear in the national spotlight. Intelligent InSites, which provides tracking real-time operational intelligence for the healthcare industry, is experiencing explosive growth. So is Appareo Systems, a leader in electronic and computer products for the aerospace and defense industries. A handful of gaming companies have surfaced in the area; one is developing a virtual reality horror game and another is building a woodland survival adventure game called On My Ownfor Xbox One. A team from North Dakota State University has engineered an affordable, 3D-printed prosthetic arm. Two locals have started a funeral webcasting service. Another startup has developed an autonomous tractor.

With all of this activity, how does a place like Fargo end up as one of the most undervalued, overlooked tech communities in the United States? That’s why I wanted to meet Greg Tehven, the executive director and co-founder of Emerging Prairie and affectionately known as Fargo’s ambassador, when I visited the city this fall. On a warm Sunday afternoon, I found him at a community lunch for new Americans, set up for several hundred on a basketball court on the west side of town. Characteristic of the region, the wind blew like it was trying to prove something; strong guests sent naan cartwheeling across curry vegetables and off paper plates. Young Bhutanese girls danced barefoot on the asphalt in sequined dresses the color of Gerber daisies.

Tehven is a soft-spoken, dyed-in-the-wool millennial, a fifth-generation Fargoian who grew up on a farm and came of age during the Buffalo Commons era, when people debated a proposal to let buffalo take over the Great Plains. Tehven left Fargo for college, wandered around, felt unfulfilled and returned, determined to build the type of community he wanted to call home. Today, he travels around the country speaking about community-building and teaches social entrepreneurship in India.

“Barriers are being eliminated to contribute to the community here,” he told me. “People who have moved away know they can come back here and do things quickly.” He talked about a radically inclusive culture that has an extraordinary speed of trust. In economic terms, what’s happening in Fargo is that a magnetic downtown is attracting and retaining talent. But Tehven contends that it’s really about love.

“It’s about increasing the amount of love in our community,” he said, noting that it’s hard to be successful on your own. “There’s a co-dependence here.” He said people need each other, whether it’s for harvesting crops or recovering from a flood. If emotional support is absent, innovation will falter.

The next morning, I met Tehven at Prairie Den, a new coworking space in the center of town, above a Chinese restaurant called King House Buffet. Until this summer, it was run by Minneapolis-based CoCo, but they didn’t last a year, Tehven said, because they didn’t embrace the philosophy of giving before getting. Shortly after they left, the space was resurrected as the Den, a funky, art-filled workspace that’s home to Emerging Prairie and a couple start-ups. Hearing the story of this rebirth made me think of the new growth that quickly emerges in forests after controlled burns.

One of the reasons Emerging Prairie was created was to act as a publicity machine for locals who think it’s uncouth to celebrate one’s own achievements. The organization, which is in the process of becoming a nonprofit, now has a staff of four, including a writer, Marisa Jackels, who produces daily stories about the startup scene. She never runs out of content. Tehven has each new staff member read Startup Communities: Building an Entrepreneurial Ecosystem in Your City by Foundry Group co-founder Brad Feld.

If Fargo had to limit itself to a single story, it would be that of Great Plains Software, a fledgling startup built by North Dakotan Doug Burgum over nearly two decades and acquired by Microsoft in 2001 for $1.1 billion. Today, Microsoft is located on the south side of town and has grown to four buildings with more than 1,500 employees—the company’s third-largest campus in North America.

Burgum went on to found Kilbourne Group, a downtown redevelopment company, and co-found Arthur Ventures, a venture capital group that’s investing in software companies out of a $45 million fund raised in 2013. He’s as close to a godfather as the humble Fargo community will allow. Incidentally, it wasn’t until well after a conversation with a community leader named Joe—who started a downtown farmer’s market, worked on Uber-friendly legislation and is now building a giant mobile sauna—that I found out he was Burgum’s son.

Burgum said Great Plains employees focused on service and had a lot of humility and gratitude; he sees that today in the dozens of startups that employ Great Plains alumni. Like others, he told me that the region’s land and history play a role in today’s technology growth.

“Every farmer and rancher is an entrepreneur and tinkerer and inventor,” he said, “and there’s some of that DNA here. You wouldn’t have ended up here if you weren’t a risk-taker—moving your family from Sweden to a new land with no electricity and very little infrastructure.”

Shane Waslaski, president and CEO of Intelligent InSites, also grew up in the state and said the strong tech community in Fargo can be attributed to a pioneering spirit and an “altruistic desire to nourish each other.” Tenaciousness and perseverance are rooted in the heritage, he said.

From Prairie Den, Tehven and I walked around downtown, popping into offices and meetings unannounced and intercepting folks on Broadway and Roberts Street—as was his plan. I was reminded of the familiarity and ease with which students can have impromptu and rich conversations while walking across a college quad. Time and again, talking to Muehler and other entrepreneurs, I heard stories that made it easy to root for the underdog that is Fargo. I found a level of enthusiasm typically reserved for young political candidates offering hope and promising change. More than once, I saw someone get choked up talking about the place they call home.

We ran into Drew Spooner, a baby-faced serial entrepreneur who started the Hammock Initiative and speaks deadpan about the health benefits of swaying. He now has sponsors and a national following. Then we ran into the woman behind Unglued, a shop selling locally made crafts; and one of the brewers behind Fargo Brewing Company, which makes Wood Chipper India Pale Ale. Much of the day, Tehven, wearing jeans and flannel, walked around with a cup of coffee in his hand. He told me there’s a sense in Fargo that if you talk about something enough, it will become real—whether it’s a hammocking craze or a spontaneous tailgate party.

Among the challenges in a town with so much startup activity is making sure the entrepreneurs have enough support to get over the first-generation hump and maintain momentum even when the initial spotlight fades.

“In cities like San Francisco, Boston, New York, there’s a lot of experience and expertise,” said Miguel Danielson, another Emerging Prairie co-founder. “That’s great for entrepreneurs because it’s scary to do alone. So a lot of what we do at Emerging Prairie is try to bring these folks together.” He lovingly describes Fargo—remote, hundreds of miles from Minneapolis and Winnipeg—as a Gilligan’s Island of sorts. “You’re stuck with the folks you’ve got in the immediate vicinity, so you better be nice to them,” he said, adding that in a small place, he feels especially blessed when he finds others with common interests.

Danielson grew up in Fargo and left for college and Harvard Law School. If it weren’t for the startup culture—which is helping Midwestern communities fight brain drain–he may never have returned. After practicing in Cambridge for several years, he opened Danielson Legal in Fargo, specializing in technology law, and he created Fargo Startup House, where entrepreneurs can live for free.

In the next five years, Danielson predicts a more robust Fargo tech scene, with a few wild successes and some wild failures. When the city sees its first exit success story of this new era—someone who starts with nothing and ends up with hundreds of millions of dollars—he said that will be “one that looms in the minds of people forever.”

At the end of my day in Fargo, I returned to Prairie Den. Spooner was setting up hammocks for an evening event. An Emerging Prairie Tweet read, “We sway while we work.”

That night, I watched a video of Tehven’s TEDxFargo talk. He was speaking at the Fargo Civic Center in 2014, outside of which sits a stone slab with the Ten Commandments.

“The Coen brothers were wrong,” he told the audience. “It isn’t a place of barrenness. It isn’t a place of cold. It’s a place of the most amazing people in the world.”

The following week I had dinner back home with a friend who works in the technology industry, and I told him I thought he should move to Fargo. Yes, it’s a place that gets an average of 50 inches of snow a year, and it’s so cold that the bikeshare moves inside for the winter. But there’s a lot going on there, I told him. Shortly thereafter, I woke up from a dream in which I was on my way back to Fargo. In it, I was with someone—perhaps my tech friend—and felt a sense of urgency. Eager to find housing, I sped westward, not wanting to miss out.

          Dalrymple Calls for Comprehensive National Energy Policy   
By ND Governor's Office
Speaking today at the Great Plains & Empower ND Energy Conference, Gov. Jack Dalrymple said the nation should follow North Dakota’s lead in developing a truly “all-of-the-above” energy policy that empowers industry to produce diverse and affordable energy supplies, advance energy independence and create jobs.
 
“At a time of growing demand for affordable and reliable energy, we need a national energy policy that truly supports the development of all of our energy resources,” Dalrymple said. “North Dakota is a great example of what can be accomplished when we support the responsible development of our oil and gas resources; when we recognize the important role of coal-fired power generation while reducing emissions; and when we continue to increase production of renewable resources.”
 
North Dakota can also become a national leader in value-added energy, Dalrymple said. The Governor encouraged energy representatives attending the conference to continue developing projects that reduce flaring, add value to the state’s abundant supplies of natural gas and create jobs.
 
North Dakota has developed a comprehensive energy policy that acknowledges the need for a diverse power supply, and empowers all energy sectors to work together in the interests of meeting the growing demand for affordable energy.  Dalrymple said North Dakota’s energy policy, developed through EmPower ND, has helped the state achieve major advancements in energy production, including:
  • North Dakota has become the nation’s second-largest oil producer and remains among the nation’s most cost-efficient shale oil plays.
  • North Dakota continues to increase its electric generation from non-carbon sources. Today, about 25 percent of North Dakota's total electric generation comes from wind and hydroelectric power.
  • North Dakota is one of just a handful of states meeting all ambient air quality standards established by the Environmental Protection Agency.
  • Total carbon emissions in North Dakota have dropped 11 percent below 2005 levels, despite the Bakken oil boom.
The Governor said that the Obama Administration refuses to honor states’ rights and continues on a path that threatens the nation’s ability to produce affordable energy and enhance its energy security.  Dalrymple cited the EPA’s “Clean Power Plan” and proposed “Waters of the United States” rule as examples of government overreach that will impede responsible energy development and drive up consumers’ energy costs.           
 
Dalrymple, Sen. John Hoeven, Sen. Heidi Heitkamp and Rep. Kevin Cramer hosted the annual Great Plains & Empower ND Energy Conference which was held at Bismarck State College’s National Center of Excellence. The daylong conference included a panel discussion with Dalrymple and the state’s congressional delegation as well as presentations by leading energy researchers and developers. Speakers included Federal Energy Regulatory Commissioner Tony Clark, and Marianne Kah, chief economist at ConocoPhillips.

          There’s a New Silicon Valley of Drones, and it Isn’t in California   
By MW Market Watch
The “Silicon Valley of drones” is taking shape in a place you probably wouldn’t expect.

With the most open airspace in the country, vast tracts of farmland, infrastructure to test on and the nation’s first unmanned aircraft degree program, it makes sense that North Dakota would be the place for drone technology to spread its wings, and it’s now expanding at an unprecedented rate.

The U.S. has previously been circumspect about allowing companies to commercialize drones; murky rulings from the Federal Aviation Administration and the haphazard enforcement of laws have made it challenging for drone companies to operate in the U.S. — so challenging, in fact, that many operators, including Amazon Prime Air, have expressed an intention to leave the U.S. to work in other countries.

But it’s a different story in North Dakota.

This summer, the nation’s first unmanned airport, the Grand Sky Development Park, opens at the state’s Grand Forks Air Force Base. The project, which has 1.2 million square feet of hangar, office and data space, is being developed by Grand Sky Development Co. A runway will allow for traditional and vertical takeoffs by drones.

The airport is expected to generate about 3,000 jobs by its 2016 completion, including 1,000 permanent jobs on site, 1,000 jobs around the community and 1,000 jobs outside the state, said Tom Swoyer, the project’s developer. Pilots would be able to control drones launching at the site from anywhere in the world.

“It’s going to touch a lot of places,” Swoyer said. “A pilot could be in Southern California and pilot the plane launched from North Dakota.”

It’s an appealing proposition for companies like Northrop Grumman NOC, -0.62%  , which has signed on as the site’s anchor tenant but has its aerospace-systems headquarters in Redondo Beach, Calif.

North Dakota committed $5 million to help bring infrastructure to the site as part of its 2015-17 executive budget and another $7.5 million in grants for runway improvements. With the project expected to cost about $25 million in total, the balance will be covered by private investment, said Swoyer.

“This project evolved here in North Dakota with the right combination of political will and an economy that was growing,” Swoyer said. “It’s a state that is investing in the industry. It’s a community willing to raise their hands and say, ‘Let’s try something completely different.’ ”

A community ‘all focused on unmanned aviation’
In 2005, the Base Realignment and Closure Commission (BRAC) considered closing the Air Force base.

“Our performance and safety record in fighter aircraft was unprecedented, but despite that our aircraft were getting old and weren’t going to get replaced,” said Robert Becklund, then commander of the North Dakota Air National Guard.

To avoid a drastic action by BRAC, the base made a bold move — replacing its KC-135 Stratotankers with drones.

“This was a dramatic change going from a single-seat manned fighter aircraft to unmanned aircraft,” Becklund said. “But it was the right thing to do for the nation.”

The base is now the site of the Global Hawk and MQ-1 Predator drone aircraft.

At about the same time, the University of North Dakota established a “center of excellence” for unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), offering the nation’s first undergraduate degree program in unmanned aviation. Five students received degrees in 2011, the program’s first graduating class. Today, more than 100 students are enrolled, and the program is one of more than 30 similar degree programs at universities throughout the country.

“We have academia, our military, the Department of Homeland Security and industries in the region all focused on unmanned aviation,” Becklund said.

In 2014, North Dakota was one of six states allowed to develop a test site for commercial drone applications: the Northern Plains UAS Test Site in Grand Forks. The site is part of an FAA program looking toward the safe integration of unmanned aircraft into airspace.

North Dakota’s test site was the first to earn operational designation from the FAA and the first to fly under the agreement. The site covers more than half the state, boasting 45,000 square miles of authorized airspace — the largest such volume of any single state.

“If North Dakota hadn’t been selected as a test site, I would have questioned our country’s decision making,” said Becklund, who now serves as the executive director of the test site.

The state budget allocated $4.2 million in its 2015-17 budget for operating the test site. Of that, $1.2 million goes directly to drone companies in the form of a dollar-for-dollar matching program for those opting to partner with one of North Dakota’s research universities on a project. A related but separate program, Research North Dakota, provides up to $300,000 in matching funds for qualified firms.

But there’s a catch. For major companies to fly at the test site, they have to lease their unmanned aircraft to the site so that they can fly under public domain. That caveat is what may have driven companies like Amazon to explore drone-delivery testing outside of the U.S.

“There is no way these companies will lease their airplanes to us,” Becklund said. “It’s a proprietary machine. Any company developing their own aircraft will not lease that to anyone outside their company.”

That restriction has posed a major problem for test sites trying to attract corporate research.

“The FAA says they are here to support industry, but to [participate at a test site] companies have to lease their aircraft to us,” Becklund said.

Companies could get around the requirement by applying for an experimental certification, but that still restricts them to research — not commercial — applications.

A vibrant startup scene
Despite the challenges, other (often smaller) drone companies benefit from the test site.

Most of those companies are based in Fargo, a city that entrepreneurs say bursts with an energy that’s akin to that of the startup scene in San Francisco. But this scene is dominated by drone-based industries.

“We’re becoming a robust startup community,” said North Dakota’s lieutenant governor, Drew Wrigley. “They are the geek squad over in Fargo. You’ve got technical companies and young, energetic entrepreneurs.”

Appareo Systems builds flight-data recorders and ADS-B, a type of aircraft tracking system. Since 2001, that startup has worked on a project in partnership with NASA and the University of North Dakota to build, design and manufacture the ADS-B equipping the airplanes.

Another company, Packet Digital, combines high-speed power electronics with advancements in solar to double drone flight times. The ultimate goal is to provide drones with unlimited flight.

“Once you extend flight time, you open up the possibility of many more types of applications and uses for drones,” said Terri Zimmerman, Packet Digital’s CEO. Those applications could include agriculture, allowing farmers to fly drones over farmland to monitor their crops.

And as more drones fill the airspace, there’s a company working on technology that gives pilots situational awareness of other drones in the area. Botlink allows operators to control a drone from a tablet and detect other drones flying nearby.

The company was founded by Shawn Muehler. He’s the guy behind DroneFocus, a meet-up group in Fargo that grew to 50 members, including Becklund, local startups and public officials. “We’re bringing the government, the private sector, the commercial side together to cut through the red tape,” Muehler said. “It’s the only meet-up where we get every industry player in one room.” Lt. Gov. Wrigley has been known to attend.

Indicative of the group’s attitude, the whole thing is organized through Meetup.com. That means anyone is welcome; you just click a button to join. When the group huddles, the gathering feels more like a block party than a rigid policy meeting with a strict agenda, according to attendees.

“We just have a different personality out here,” Muehler said. “It’s not about how we can beat our competitors. It’s how we can help each other out to propel this industry forward.”

North Dakota’s drone sector has already blown away industry predictions. The Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) released an economic report in 2013 (before North Dakota was chosen as a test site) predicting the economic impact of drone integration in the U.S. The data were based on airspace activity at the time the report was created.

They forecast that between 2015 and 2017, California’s drone industry would have the largest economic impact in terms of dollars, and North Dakota’s would have the third lowest.

North Dakota’s Department of Commerce revised those predictions in 2013 based on the assumption that the state would become a test site. Its data showed that North Dakota would have the greatest percentage of drone-related jobs (relative to population) of any state.

“Obviously, California has a number of aerospace companies as well as companies that develop sensors, payloads, software and a variety of different products that fit within this industry,” said Paul Lucy, a director at the North Dakota Department of Commerce. “They underestimated the potential for companies to come here and do R&D work with our test site.”

Still, Becklund doesn’t believe North Dakota is a complete replacement for Silicon Valley, he said. There just aren’t enough people working in engineering and technology to fill jobs in a state that already has one of the nation’s lowest unemployment rates, he said. North Dakota’s unemployment rate in May was 3.1% versus the national average of 5.5%.

“But if those engineers who developed the technologies in Silicon Valley are looking for a place with a low cost of living, a highly educated workforce and a cooperative community — whether that’s the government or financially — probably this is the best place to do that,” he said.

But even if the jobs get filled, there’s still the issue of funding.

“We can’t get funding because the people in the state tend to be fiscally conservative,” Botlink’s Muehler said. His company received $500,000 in seed funding from local investors. But that’s a paltry figure if the state is going to compete with such venture-backed Silicon Valley drone startups as Airware, which has raised over $40 million in five funding rounds, or 3D Robotics, which has more than $100 million in venture capital.

“We’ve been searching for Series A on a local level because we want to keep the money in the state, so we’re looking for funding sources within North Dakota,” said Muehler.

But where these startups lack private capital, the state is trying to foot the bill. Since 2006, North Dakota has allocated $32.5 million in grant funding to companies interested in commercial drone development through 2017. In addition, the state’s Research North Dakota program offers $5 million biannually in grants from research and development to organizations and companies involved in UAS research through state universities.

Those business incentives have drawn companies from around the U.S. to the state. Florida-based drone manufacturer Altvavian announced in February a $3.2 million agreement to manufacture drones at a plant in North Dakota, the first official UAS manufacturing project in the state.

Wrigley said he sees his state as the Silicon Valley of drones. “People look to North Dakota and say they want to emulate this,” the lieutenant governor said. “We’re blessed with the natural conditions that make it easy to expand drone technology, industries that are keen to tie in UAS technology — and on top of that you have people passionate for aviation and emerging technologies. It’s a part of our pioneering culture.”

          High Hopes for Cavalier Renaissance Zone Program   
By Grand Forks Herald
Bryan McCoy has a straightforward goal for the new Cavalier Renaissance Zone Program.

"My goal is to do one commercial and one housing project per year for 15 years," Cavalier's economic and chamber director said. "The key is to get that first project going. Then others will see what it can do." 

When this Pembina County city of 1,300 launched its Renaissance Zone program last month, it joined 55 other North Dakota cities in the North Dakota Department of Commerce's Division of Community Services program that offers incentives for business and housing improvements. Those incentives include five-year, 100-percent tax exemptions, plus tax credits for:
  • Commercial rehabilitation projects, including apartments.
  • Business purchases or expansions.
  • Historical rehabilitation for properties already listed or eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places.
Others cities in region in the program are: Cando, Cooperstown, Devils Lake, Finley, Grafton, Grand Forks, Hope, Lakota, Langdon, Mayville, Munich, Northwood and Park River.

Cavalier has designated 23 square blocks, the maximum allowed for cities under 5,000 population.

So far, a couple of local contractors have expressed interest in housing rehabilitation projects, McCoy said.

Because the program is new in Cavalier, he said many businesses or residents still do not know much about the it or how they might qualify.

One longtime business, Thompson's Cafe, currently is renovating its Main Street property. Besides new flooring and carpeting indoors, contractors worked this week to install new metal shake shingles on the storefront awning.

Daryl Thompson, who owns the cafe with his wife, Kelley, have inquired about the Renaissance program, but they're still not sure if the project might qualify for any tax breaks.

"It would be nice if we do," he said. "But we needed new carpet. When you're doing one thing, it doesn't hurt to go a little further."

When he started, he wanted to have it completed June 19, for the two-day 19th Annual Cavalier Motorcycle Ride In, which promoters call "Little Sturgis of the North." The event draws 1,000 or more bikers from throughout the region.

"They've been so good to us," he said.

In addition, Cavalier is hosting an all-class reunion July 25.

"Our Main Street is OK," McCoy said, despite four or five empty storefronts.

McCoy, a Tennessee native who has a master of public administration degree from UND, has lived in Cavalier for about 14 months. He also spent 15 months in Fargo after graduation, working with the North Dakota Community Action Partnership.

Like communities throughout the region, he said housing is a critical need in Cavalier, which is located about 80 miles northwest of Grand Forks.

Ultimately, McCoy would like to attract a developer to Cavalier who would create a downtown multi-floor, multi-use complex, perhaps with business or office space on the ground floor and apartments on upper floors.

As the local tourism director, he also would like to attract new businesses—such as bicycle, ski or camping shops—that could serve the region's tourism and recreational industry.

Cavalier, part of a regional tourism zone called the Rendezvous Region named for its fur-trade history, is located just a few miles from Icelandic State Park, Pembina Gorge State Recreation Area and Frost Fire Ski and Snowboard Area.

"I know we're a lot smaller than a lot of cities, but I think we can make it work in Cavalier," he said.

          Dalrymple, Badlands NGL Announce Largest Private Equity Project in State History   
By ND Governor's Office
Governor Jack Dalrymple along with William Jeffrey Gilliam, CEO of Badlands NGL, LLC, today announced the development of a North Dakota manufacturing plant that will convert ethane, a byproduct of natural gas processing, into polyethylene which is used to make a wide variety of end-use consumer and industrial plastics.
 
Badlands NGL, LLC, and its partners expect to invest $4 billion to build the polyethylene manufacturing facility in North Dakota. The project will be the largest private investment in state history.
 
“This project is fully aligned with our goals to reduce flaring, add value to our energy resources right here in North Dakota and create diverse job opportunities across the state,” Dalrymple said.  “By advancing the responsible development of our energy resources and by adding value to all of our resources, the opportunities in North Dakota are boundless.”
 
Joining Dalrymple and Gilliam for the announcement were Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring and Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem, both of whom serve with Dalrymple on the North Dakota Industrial Commission which regulates the state’s energy industry.  Sen. John Hoeven also participated in the announcement which was held at the state Capitol in Bismarck.
 
"The role of the Industrial Commission in helping the Badlands’ project come together reflects the Commission's mission to promote oil and gas production in a manner that prevents waste and protects the rights of mineral owners," Goehring said. “When completed, this project by itself has the potential to reduce most of the flaring of natural gas in our state.  That’s real progress and good news for North Dakota.”
 
The value-added manufacturing plant will tap into North Dakota’s abundant supplies of liquid natural gas to source ethane.  The facility will convert ethane gas to low density and high density plastics which are used to make a wide range of end products for consumers and industry.  The facility will be able to produce 1.5 million metric tons of polyethylene, or 3.3 billion pounds annually, and will employ 500 highly trained people in manufacturing, marketing, administrative, safety, financial and executive positions. The project will take at least three years for full development.
 
“This is a good example of what we can accomplish by adding value to our energy resources,” Stenehjem said. “This plant will not only help us reduce the flaring of natural gas, but it will also create new, high-paying jobs and further diversify our state economy.”
 
Badlands intends to market the majority of the polyethylene products domestically, but product will also find its way to markets in Asia, South America and Europe.  Project developers say that the plant’s location in North Dakota will enable them to efficiently ship to world markets from the Pacific Northwest and from Atlantic ports.
 
“Badlands is proud to bring this manufacturing facility to North Dakota,” Gilliam said. “We are committed to maximizing the value of Bakken ethane for producers, their midstream partners and all gas processors. This facility is the solution needed to add value to North Dakota’s ethane supply and make it a commercially marketable product.  In doing so, there will actually be a market advantage for North Dakota polyethylene products.
 
“North Dakota elected officials and agencies have provided Badlands with by far the most business-friendly and pro-development environment in the United States, Gilliam said. “We have been fortunate to attract many of North Dakota’s leading business and community leaders as Badlands investors, and we continue to discuss debt and equity capital markets needs with major financial institutions.”
 
In developing the world-class manufacturing plant, Badlands is working with two strategic partners, Tecnicas Reunidas, or “TR” (www.tecnicasreunidas.es), which is based in Madrid, Spain, as well as Vinmar Projects (www.vinmar.com/projects/) of Houston, Texas. TR, one of the largest petrochemicals and polymers contractors in the world, is completing a preliminary engineering analysis for Badlands. This work is scheduled for completion in 2014 and will include technology evaluations, engineering and planning, and final site selection. 
 
Vinmar provides services in support of project finance for the development partners.  Vinmar and Badlands have signed a mutually binding, 15-year memorandum of understanding for 100 percent of the polyethylene to be produced by the Badlands project. 
 
Badlands NGL, LLC is a Delaware limited liability company. Principals and strategic partners of Badlands have considerable experience in development, construction and management of operations that convert natural gas liquid into polyolefin products.

          Fargo 2.0: It’s Not Like the Movie   
By Seattle Times


Growing up here, Greg Tehven heard all the jokes.

“When I’d tell people I was from Fargo, I would get laughed at. It was almost as if other cities bullied us,” said Tehven, 29, a self-appointed community booster and co-founder of Emerging Prairie, a network of local entrepreneurs and startups.

It was bad enough when the movie “Fargo” came out two decades ago. Now it’s back as a TV show, and this time, the gap between the Fargo on screen — the one with the woodchipper — and the city that surrounds him is galling.

Tehven’s Fargo is the five-block radius of downtown; a vibrant community of artists, tech entrepreneurs, college kids and possibilities. Once hollowed out, the downtown is now crowded with coffee shops, restaurants and quirky shops that draw in crowds of strolling pedestrians and cyclists.

Tehven’s Fargo is one of the nation’s fastest-growing cities.

Newcomers are pouring into the Fargo-Moorhead region, pushing its borders outward, filling the schools to capacity, but still not filling all its 5,700 current job vacancies.

Neighboring West Fargo has built so many new schools, they hold contests to come up with names. Fargo itself, population 109,000, now sprawls across 48 square miles, a footprint the size of Boston.

“You feel like you died and went to heaven,” said James Gartin, president of the Greater Fargo Moorhead Economic Development Corp. — the man in charge of encouraging economic growth in a place now ranked as the best place in America to find a job, the country’s third-safest community and its fourth-fastest growing metro region.

“It’s electric,” Gartin said. “It’s just an incredible time to be in this market. Not only with the business growth, but we have this incredible entrepreneurial ecosystem.”

These are boom times for all of North Dakota, as western oil fields bring in money and jobs at a staggering rate. The unemployment rate is near 2 percent and there’s so much revenue rolling in, the Legislature has cut taxes by $2.4 billion since 2009, yet the state still has a $500 million surplus.

The Bakken oil fields are 400 miles northwest of here, and while the region benefits from the oil boom, most of its prosperity is coming from within. The largest employers in town are the health-care companies, the region’s many universities, the banks and the tech companies, led by Microsoft.

Beyond the five-block core of downtown, Fargo levels out into a sprawl of neighborhoods and businesses, with more going up every day; 2,700 new housing permits have been issued this year.

Plenty of towns talk about revitalizing their downtowns. Fargo is actually doing it, thanks to the happy combination of a good economy, a thriving business climate and motivated residents.

“We’re building the kind of city we want to live in,” Tehven said.

The rebirth of Fargo started with one building, and one man determined to save it.

When Doug Burgum sold his Great Plains Software to Microsoft more than a decade ago, he turned his time and resources to invest in the neglected downtown.

He started with a dilapidated old school-supply building that was about to be razed for a parking lot. In 2000, the city paid Burgum $100,000 to take it off its hands.

Burgum refurbished the building and donated it to North Dakota State University. Today, it’s Renaissance Hall and houses the university’s architecture department.

Other developers stepped forward to renovate other buildings.

“People ask, ‘What’s left to do?’ ” Burgum said. “I tell them we’re just getting started.”

The downtown is an attractive city center with amenities that can make the difference in attracting new businesses and workers.

“Value what makes your community distinctive. Don’t try to look like everyone else,” said Thomas Fisher, dean of the College of Design at the University of Minnesota.

The two largest demographic groups in America today are the baby boomers and the millennials, born between the 1980s and 2000s.

Both groups, Fisher said, are being drawn to downtown living, often for the same reasons — they want the entertainment, shops and amenities you can walk to, unlike the sidewalk-free sprawl of the suburbs.

Fargo is a city of networkers. One person will notice that the downtown alleys could use some sprucing up, and in short order Alley Fair gets created, with volunteers fanning out over town to fill vacant alleys with art, plants and light. It can feel like the city has a downtown-improvement flash mob.

“Fargo is filled with really talented, creative, hardworking people that care,” Tehven said. “And we’re having the time of our lives.”

          Affordable Workforce Housing Construction Begins in Minot   
By ND Housing Finance Agency
Beyond Shelter, Inc. (BSI), the Minot Housing Authority and North Dakota Housing Finance Agency (NDHFA) broke ground today for Fieldcrest Apartments, a development that will bring affordable workforce housing to northeast Minot.

Depending on income and family size, the Fieldcrest units will rent for $400 to $804 per month. Nine apartments in the development are reserved specifically for Essential Service Workers – individuals employed by a school, medical facility or government agency deemed an essential public service.

“Ensuring that citizens impacted by rapid growth and flood recovery have access to affordable housing is a top priority for our state,” said Gov. Jack Dalrymple. “This project is an important infrastructure investment for the Minot area, providing affordable housing for those on fixed incomes and for employees who provide essential services for the community.”

The total cost of constructing Fieldcrest is estimated at $8.3 million with the state providing more than $6 million to support the project. The development received a $2.3 million Housing Incentive Fund (HIF) commitment from NDHFA and an interest rate buy-down through Bank of North Dakota’s (BND) Flex PACE Affordable Housing Program. The North Dakota Industrial Commission, consisting of Dalrymple as chairman, Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring and Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem, oversees NDHFA and BND. The development also received a $3.76 million Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG DR) grant administered by the North Dakota Department of Commerce.

“Beyond Shelter’s mission is to improve communities by developing housing for those most in need,” said Lynn Fundingsland, BSI CEO. “Without these layers of financial support, our organization would not be able to build housing that rents at affordable levels.”

“NDHFA is charged with ensuring that everyone in North Dakota has access to affordable housing,” said Jolene Kline, NDHFA executive director. “We will continue to work with the Industrial Commission members to address the needs of the state’s growing communities.”

HIF provides low-cost financing to developers that create affordable rental housing. The program is capitalized in part by taxpayer contributions that can be directed to specific projects. American Bank Center, Bremer Bank, U.S. Bank and Wells Fargo all made contributions to support Fieldcrest.

Flex PACE is designed to assist in the financing of affordable multi-family housing.

The CDBG program provides financial assistance for public facilities, housing and economic development projects. In addition to the dollars provided by the State, the City of Minot granted $750,000 of its CDBG DR funds to BSI to acquire the Fieldcrest site. An additional $100,000 of the city’s CDBG DR funds was used for off-site sanitary sewer extension work.

The 42-unit apartment complex will be located at 500 36th Ave NE in Minot. BSI anticipates that construction will be completed by June 2015.

A nonprofit developer of affordable housing based in Fargo, ND, BSI has partnered with like-minded organizations to develop more than 654 affordable residential units in North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota. BSI will break ground on 191 new units in 2014.

NDHFA is a self-supporting state agency that finances the creation and rehabilitation of affordable housing across North Dakota.

          Clean URLs in Seaside   

Seaside is known as a heretic framework when it comes to URLs, by default, they aren't very pretty. This is both a blessing and a curse. It speeds up development tremendously but confuses the crap out of your users who don't understand why they can't copy URLs and instant message or email them to you.

These URLs come from callbacks, but you don't want to get rid of all callbacks since they're a major part of what makes programming in Seaside so enjoyable by removing the need to manually marshal state in URLs. Once you get to the point where your app is working well enough that you are concerned about the URLs, you can identify those parts of your application that are mostly just navigation from one component to the next and start replacing callbacks with clean URLs encoding the necessary state in the URL like every other framework does. This works well for those more web page parts of your site where you don't really need complex callbacks anyway.

Doing clean URLs in Seaside isn't very difficult, but unlike using callbacks, how you pass state with them is rather application specific. Seaside doesn't have simplistic controllers that receive requests and dispatch to views, but an actual control tree that maintains state between requests in the session. Since the control tree is application specific and varies depending on the developer's personal style, the URL routing, which has to build or change parts of the control tree, is also necessarily application specific.

Basically there are two things you have to do, get rid of the _s and get rid of the _k. I picked up these ideas from the squeak-dev list when Adrian from cmsbox explained what they were doing. He didn't post any code, just a quick description of the method, but it was more than enough to get me going.

Getting rid of the _s is trivial, it's a configuration option on the application config page. Using that method however will cost you an initial redirect where Seaside sets a cookie and then redirects so it can detect the cookie on the following request. This leaves you without the _s but immediately leaves you sitting on a page with a _k and c in the URL when you haven't even done anything but hit the site root; it's ugly.

If you want clean URLs, at least for something as simple as page to page navigation where nothing fancy is going on you probably don't want this initial redirect, bots don't like it either. The fix is to not enable cookie sessions via the config, but to do it manually by tagging the response with the cookie on the way out if it isn't already there.

On your WASession subclass just override #returnResponse: with something like this:

returnResponse: aResponse 
    (self currentRequest cookieAt: self application handlerCookieName) 
        ifNil: [ aResponse addCookie: self sessionCookie ].
    ^ super returnResponse: aResponse

This adds the same cookie the config screen would without the redirect and thus without the initial ugly URL when a new session is instantiated.

We also have to remove the _s from generated callback URLs. Add another override to extend the behavior of #actionUrlForKey: to strip the _s when a session cookie is found:

actionUrlForKey: aString 
    | url |
    url := super actionUrlForKey: aString.
    (self currentRequest cookieAt: self application handlerCookieName) 
            ifNotNil: [ url parameters removeKey: self application handlerField ].
    ^ url

This takes care of the _s, you'll never see it again.

The _k is a little more interesting, so I'll use this blog as my example.

I tend to use a root component which acts as an outer frame and has an instance variable for the current body, header, and footer components. Sometimes some of this stuff in the root component might be expensive to get, so I don't want to have to do it more than once per session, or I just want it to persist between requests.

Normally when a request comes in without a _k, the current session will be invoked to create a new render loop main, which will be invoked to create a new instance of your root component and render it.

I want to avoid this--though this part isn't strictly necessary if you're OK with each request creating a new instance of your root--and keep the existing instance of the root component as well as parse the URL to decide what component should be loaded as the current body. This requires a custom #WARenderLoopMain subclass installed as the main class in the configuration.

This all starts at, go figure, #start: on the session class. So we'll override the default implementation with this:

start: aRequest 
    ^ self mainClass new
        blog: blog;
        start: aRequest

Here we see blog, which is an instance of the root component that I want to reuse. I'm simply passing on the root component instance to the custom #WARenderLoopMain subclass.

This means my session class needs to keep track of the root component, easy enough to do in the #initialize of the root component.

initialize
    super initialize.
    self session blog: self.
    currentBody := SBPostsView new.

Now the custom WARenderLoopMain subclass has the root component. A simple override of the #createRoot factory method allows me to return the same instance each time instead of creating a new one:

createRoot
    ^ blog ifNil: [ self rootClass new ]

At this point, I could override #start: and do all my URL parsing now, in the render loop, but I won't because I prefer to let each component parse the URL for itself taking its relevant state and loading itself up however it wishes. The default behavior of #start: already allows this by invoking #initialRequest: on each visible component.

Now, this won't be an initial request, but a subsequent request on an already initialized component; however, about the only thing I ever use #initialRequest: for is parsing URLs, so I'm happy to just treat each request without a _k as an #initialRequest: to a component.

#initialRequest: aRequest
    "parse aRequest url however you like"

Of course parsing your URL is quite naturally application specific so I'll leave this as an exercise to the reader.

At this point I just grab the path from the URL and do a quick search for blog posts with a matching URL slug. If one is found I load up that page as the current page, if not I check for any tags that match the slug and load up the posts in that tag. If nothing is found I issue a 404 status and render the home page.

The only thing left to do now is render the URLs cleanly instead of with callbacks in your render methods. Something like:

html anchor
    url: (self baseUrl addToPath: eachPost slug) asString;
    with: eachPost name

Note here that #baseUrl is not actually a method on a component but on the session. After some profiling I found #baseUrl to be a very expensive method to call and since it never really changes it pays off very well to cache it in my component base class:

baseUrl
    ^ (baseUrl ifNil: [ baseUrl := self session baseUrl ]) copy

Note that when I'm rendering the anchor I'm actually modifying the #baseUrl's path so the cached copy needs to return a copy of itself whenever it's used.

Anchors with callbacks, when clicked in Seaside result in two http requests to the server, the initial one which looks up the callback and invokes it, and a quick 302 redirect to the final URL to render that page. By not using callbacks and rendering ordinary URLs I'm bypassing the callback phase completely and loading up my state in #initialRequest: which eliminates one of the http requests. Combined with the caching of the #baseUrl, this is what makes the page navigation feel so snappy.

I'm sure some of this will likely change in 2.9 but at the moment I have no idea. In any case you get clean URLs with no parameters that are bookmarkable and won't confuse users trying to pass URLs around among themselves.


          Small Scriptaculous API Change for Seaside 2.8   

Yesterday I was upgrading one of my applications to the latest version of Scriptaculous and Seaside 2.8, at first everything seemed to go OK but shortly thereafter I noticed that some of the Ajax in the application had stopped working. After a bit of testing I traced the problem to multi element Ajax updates where I'm using the evaluator. Stuff like this occasionally happens so it was time for some investigation.

I cracked open an older image and checked the version I'd been using and started reading the commit comments for each version looking for clues. You can do this from SqueakSource but I usually just do it in Monticello directly. After a bit of digging I find in Scriptaculous-lr.232.mcz the information I'm looking for, namely...

NOTE: SUElement>>#render: does not call #update: anymore, directly use #update:, #replace:, #insert:, and #wrap: now. These methods finally accept any renderable object (string, block, ...) and also encode the contents correctly.

Seems Lukas changed the API to make things more intention revealing. A quick trip through the app looking for evaluators and changing #render: to #update: and everything started working again. Having made the necessary changes, and looking at the new code for a few minutes, I liked it and agree with API change.

What I want to point out is the importance of good commit comments (thanks Lukas) that allow those who use your frameworks to work out their problems. Commit comments are the best place to share your thoughts about why you changed something or decided to go in a particular direction because they are, or should be, the first thing a developer reads before loading a new version of that code.

I also what to point out the process itself. Being open source code, when things go wrong it's often up to you to solve your own problems. Had I not found what I needed in the comments, I'd have started Googling and searching the archives of the Seaside-Dev list to see if anyone else had run into this issue. If that fails, then I'd post to Seaside-Dev asking for help.

There's not a lot of documentation on Seaside and Scriptaculous in comparison to some other frameworks, but there's plenty of help to be found with just a little bit of effort on your part to do your homework and a great community ready and willing to help you out when you need it. But always do your homework first, in case your question has been answered many times over.


          13 April 2008 > Squeak Image Updated   

Just a quick notification that I updated my squeak image.

It's based on Damien Cassou's latest Squeak Dev Image (Squeak 3.9.1), an awesome base image with all the necessary goodies a developer needs. This image is a bit smaller than previous ones because I've taken Glorp out since I'm not currently using it anymore. I've also dumped the windows native fonts and use different default fonts due to my working from both Windows and Linux these days.

rST (Remote Smalltalk) is now loaded because I plan on experimenting with it a bit. OSProcess is part of my default setup as well, on the Linux side, it's quite useful.


          Simple Image Based Persistence in Squeak   

One of the nicest things about prototyping in Smalltalk is that you can delay the need to hook up a database during much of your development, and if you're lucky, possibly even forever.

It's a mistake to assume every application needs a relational database, or even a proper database at all. It's all too common for developers to wield a relational database as a golden hammer that solves all problems, but for many applications they introduce a level of complexity that can making development feel like wading through a pond full of molasses where you spend much of your time trying to keep the database schema and the object schema in sync. It kills both productivity and fun, and god dammit, programming should be fun!

This is sometimes justified, but many times it's not. Many business applications and prototypes are built to replace manual processes using Email, Word, and Excel. Word and Excel by the way, aren't ACID compliant, don't support transactions, and manage to successfully run most small businesses. MySql became wildly popular long before it supported transactions, so it's pretty clear a wide range of apps just don't need that, no matter how much relational weenies say it's required.

It shouldn't come as a surprise that one can take a single step up the complexity ladder, and build simple applications that aren't ACID compliant, don't support transactions, and manage to successfully run most small businesses better than Word and Excel while purposely not taking a further step and moving up to a real database which would introduce a level of complexity that might blow the budget and make the app infeasible.

No object relational mapping layer (not even Rails and ActiveRecord) can match the simplicity, performance, and speed of development one can get just using plain old objects that are kept in memory all the time. Most small office apps with no more than a handful of users can easily fit everything into memory, this is the idea behind Prevayler.

The basic idea is to use a command pattern to apply changes to your model, you can then log the commands, snapshot the model, and replay the log in case of a crash to bring the last snapshot up to date. Nice idea, if you're OK creating commands for every state changing action in your application and being careful with how you use timestamps so replaying the logs works properly. I'm not OK with that, it introduces a level of complexity that is overkill for many apps and is likely the reason more people don't use a Prevayler like approach.

One might attempt to use the Smalltalk image itself as a database (and many try), but this is ripe with problems. My average image is well over 30 megs, saving it takes a bit of time, and saving it while processing HTTP requests risks all kinds of things going wrong as the image prepares for what is essentially a shutdown/restart cycle.

Using a ReferenceStream to serialize objects to disk Prevayler style, but ignoring the command pattern part and just treating it more like crash proof image persistence is a viable option if your app won't ever have that much data. Rather than trying to minimize writes with commands, you just snapshot the entire model on every change. This isn't as crazy as it might sound, most apps just don't have that much data. This blog for example, a year and a half old, around 100 posts, 1500 comments, has a 2.1 megabyte MySql database, which would be much smaller as serialized objects.

If you're going to have a lot of data, clearly this is a bad approach, but if you're already thinking about how to use the image for simple persistence because you know your data will fit in ram, here's how I do it.

It only takes a few lines of code in a single abstract class that you can subclass for each project to make a Squeak image fairly robust and crash proof and more than capable enough to allow you just use the image, no database necessary. We'll start with a class...

Object subclass: #SMFileDatabase
    instanceVariableNames: ''
    classVariableNames: ''
    poolDictionaries: ''
    category: 'SimpleFileDb'

SMFileDatabase class
    instanceVariableNames: 'lock'

All the methods that follow are class side methods. First, we'll need a method to fetch the directory where rolling snapshots are kept.

backupDirectory
    ^ (FileDirectory default directoryNamed: self name) assureExistence.

The approach I'm going to take is simple, a subclass will implement #repositories to return the root object that needs serialized, I just return an array containing the root collection of each domain class.

repositories
    self subclassResponsibility

The subclass will also implement #restoreRepositories: which will restore those repositories back to wherever they belong in the image for the application to use them.

restoreRepositories: someRepositories
    self subclassResponsibility

Should the image crash for any reason, I want the last backup will be fetched from disk and restored. So I need a method to detect the latest version of the backup file, which I'll stick a version number in when saving.

lastBackupFile
    ^ self backupDirectory fileNames 
        detectMax: [:each | each name asInteger]

Once I have the file name, I'll deserialize it with a read only reference stream (don't want to lock the file if I don't plan on editing it)

lastBackup
    | lastBackup |
    lastBackup := self lastBackupFile.
    lastBackup ifNil: [ ^ nil ].
    ^ ReferenceStream 
        readOnlyFileNamed: (self backupDirectory fullNameFor: lastBackup)
        do: [ : f | f next ]

This requires you extend ReferenceStream with #readOnlyFileNamed:do:, just steal the code from FileStream so nicely provided by Avi Bryant that encapsulates the #close of the streams behind #do:. Much nicer than having to remember to close your streams.

Now I can provide a method to actually restore the latest backup. Later, I'll make sure this happens automatically.

restoreLastBackup
    self lastBackup ifNotNilDo: [ : backup | self restoreRepositories: backup ]

I like to keep around the last x number of snapshots to give me a warm fuzzy feeling that I can get old versions should something crazy happen. I'll provide a hook for an overridable default value in case I want to adjust this for different projects.

defaultHistoryCount
    ^ 15

Now, a quick method to trim the older versions so I'm not filling up the disk with data I don't need.

trimBackups
    | entries versionsToKeep |
    versionsToKeep := self defaultHistoryCount.
    entries := self backupDirectory entries.
    entries size < versionsToKeep ifTrue: [ ^ self ].
    ((entries sortBy: [ : a : b | a first asInteger < b first asInteger ]) 
        allButLast: versionsToKeep) 
            do: [ : entry | self backupDirectory deleteFileNamed: entry first ]

OK, I'm ready to actually serialize the data. I don't want multiple processes all trying to do this at the same time, so I'll wrap the save in a critical section, #trimBackups, figure out the next version number, and serialize the data (#newFileNamed:do: another stolen FileStream method), ensuring to #flush it to disk before continuing (don't want the OS doing any write caching).

saveRepository
    | version |
    lock critical: 
        [ self trimBackups.
        version := self lastBackupFile 
            ifNil: [ 1 ]
            ifNotNil: [ self lastBackupFile name asInteger + 1 ].
        ReferenceStream 
            newFileNamed: (self backupDirectory fullPathFor: self name) , '.' , version asString
            do: [ : f | f nextPut: self repositories ; flush ] ]

So far so good, let's automate it. I'll add a method to schedule the subclass to be added to the start up and shutdown sequence. You must call this for each subclass, not for this class itself.

UPDATE: This method also initializes the lock and must be called prior to using #saveRepository, this seems cleaner.

enablePersistence
    lock := Semaphore forMutualExclusion.
    Smalltalk addToStartUpList: self.
    Smalltalk addToShutDownList: self

So on shutdown, if the image is actually going down, just save the current data to disk.

shutDown: isGoingDown 
    isGoingDown ifTrue: [ self saveRepository ]

And on startup we can #restoreLastBackup.

startUp: isComingUp 
    isComingUp ifTrue: [ self restoreLastBackup ]

Now, if you want a little extra snappiness and you're not worried about making the user wait for the flush to disk, I'll add little convience method for saving the repository on a background thread.

takeSnapshot
    [self saveRepository] forkAt: Processor systemBackgroundPriority
        named: 'snapshot: ' , self class name

And that's it, half a Prevayler and a more robust easy to use method that's a bit better than trying to shoehorn the image into being your database for those small projects where you really really don't want to bother with a real database (blogs, wikis, small apps, etc). Just sprinkle a few MyFileDbSubclass saveRepository or MyFileDbSubclass takeSnapshot's around your application whenever you feel it important, and you're done.

Here's a file out if you just want the code fast, SMFileDatabase.st

          Re: Moodle mobile addon help   

by r q.  

Hello,

Just to update and document my solution, I did get this working. I ran into several stumbling blocks with the content handlers. My issue turned out to be that the static string used to attach the binding to the module's method did not align with the method name. This is a tight coupling, so just be aware of this if you're having issues getting a new addon to work. If you're using a fancy editor like WebStorm, it won't be able to parse the static string bindings.

For what it's worth, I think it would be a lot nicer if the system logged out something useful to let you know *why* the bindings are failing. Or even let you know that the content handler wasn't found. Some kind of informative error message or stack trace. It's very hard as a developer to figure out why the component isn't being found. Is there somewhere in moodle mobile's core where we could catch the exception and log it out at debug level?

Anyway, thanks for the help and hints, I was able to get my code working. Hope somebody finds this thread useful!

Hey Gang!

Once again, it's been too long so I suppose I should probably write something. Things are hectic as always, but I won't say busy because that annoys one of my readers (you know who you are!). I'm finishing up my web "class" which has really just been me reading various books and abusing old friends into coming over and showing me how to do this whole web development thing. It has been a fascinating journey, and I've actually learned quite a bit, but what I've learned most of all is that I don't want to be a web developer. I have always respected them, but now, even more so. What these guys and gals are able to do with the digital medium is nothing short of amazing.

My last major task for the web project I'm working on is securing an administrative directory within the website. I've read about a hundred online tutorials about how to use .htaccess and .htpasswd and I really do understand how they are supposed to work. The problem is that the website I'm working on is hosted on GoDaddy and while they have an amazingly inexpensive service, they don't necessarily do things the way everyone else does. I tried configuring the security the way all the online tutorials told me to, and that didn't work. Then I find out that GoDaddy has recently (as in within the last three months) published a new utility on their "hosting manager" website that supposedly configures everything for you. So I delete all the files I've tried to create manually, and I use their GUI to secure it. Well, that didn't work either. So I remove all the settings, start from scratch and try again. Guess what? Still no good. Finally, I decide to call tech support. I find out that they don't have an 800 number, but they do have a long distance number you can call. I called it and waited on hold for half an hour (using their long distance number). I got a perfectly pleasant, non-accent, English speaking person on the phone. I explain my situation, and he and I test a few links and he determines that it's not working correctly (thanks genius). He tells me that since they don't support custom .htaccess files that it's not truly covered by support. I stop him right there and tell him that I didn't use a custom file. I used THEIR interface to create THEIR file from THEIR admin pages. He asks me to wait on hold while he checks this out (long distance). After about 10 minutes, he comes back and says that he spoke with some other techs and they said that I should remove the settings I created and try creating them again. I stop him right there and ask him if it would help to know that I have tried removing and creating these settings using THEIR interface two or three times already and it still isn't working as advertised. He asks me to wait while he talks to people again (long distance). After about 10 minutes, he comes back and tells me that he is going to have to escalate this call and open a ticket and if I could just patiently wait (long distance) while he typed in the information, he would get my ticket processed. After another 10 minute wait, he came back on and informed me that it will take 24 to 48 hours before someone will even look at the problem and that they will contact me via email when they have something to tell me. We part company with pleasantries. He was a very nice individual, and we were both calm and polite during the entire call. I just wish that their online utility did what it advertised, and I wish I wasn't put on hold so often for so long, but I've been on the flip side of that call, and I know what he was going through, so I can't really blame him (much). I just can't believe they don't have an 800 number. Hopefully, I will have a solution soon so that I can put this whole web development thing behind me.

In other news, there was a really large SCA event this past weekend, and this upcoming weekend is the next Crown Tourney (yes, I'm fighting in it), but this post is now way beyond long enough, and I'll type more about the SCA stuff later (probably after Crown, so everybody wish me luck).

          Can Planting More Milkweed Save Monarch Butterflies? It's Complicated   
Monarch butterflies are disappearing. Populations of these distinctive black and orange migratory insects have been in precipitous decline for the past 20 years, but scientists aren't exactly sure what's causing them to vanish. So far, potential culprits include disease, climate change, drought and deforestation. Everyone from loggers to suburban developers has been implicated. But much of the blame has been placed on farmers and the pesticides they rely on — pesticides that have reduced the milkweed that monarch caterpillars feast on. Now, however, scientists say that may not be the full story. Every spring, hundreds of thousands of monarchs sweep across the Great Plains from Mexico to Canada, and then back again in the fall. It's an amazing journey, one that takes place over multiple generations for the butterflies. The insects breed while traveling north, expending four generations to make it to Canada. The final generation then flies all the way back to Mexico to spend the winter
          To Save The Monarch Butterfly, Many Are Turning To The Humble Milkweed   
Monarch butterflies are disappearing. Scientists agree that in the last 20 years, populations of the black and orange insect have been in precipitous decline. But there's much less certainty on what’s causing them to vanish. As each new scientific paper on monarch decline is published, the image becomes slightly less opaque. So far, potential culprits include disease, climate change, drought, deforestation, and nectar plants. Blame has been cast on everyone from loggers to farmers to suburban developers.

          Comment on Menlo Park Needs To Develop A LONG TERM Downtown Parking Plan Now by Dana Hendrickson   
Peter, I like the boldest of this idea but you left out one important consideration - MONEY. I suspect Menlo Park residents would not want to pay for it. Putting all the Plaza Parking underground and building a park above would likely cost at least $60 to 75M. We can build one above ground parking structure and convert Santa Cruz between Doyle and Crane into a beautiful and vibrant 3-block long pedestrian promenade for less than half of that figure. This would help our existing businesses which will in turn attract new ones. Add a micro-brewery and Barronne 2 and we're in business. If in 3-5 years we need more parking then build another parking structure either above or underground depending on what we know at the time. Peter: To make your idea less "pie in the sky" I suggest you do a little research and then illustrate your ideas with a simple economic model and clearly show your key assumptions. If it makes economic sense the marketplace will take it on; otherwise, it comes across as simply "wishful thinking" and we already have too much of that at times. Go for it. Please include your parking fee assumptions when talking about leasing a parking garage. Note: developers generally want an 8% annul return so if a parking space costs on average $50,000 that would mean annual income of $4000 per space. Also, since neither the Stanford Shopping Center nor Palo Alto charge parking fees, why would it make sense for Menlo Park?
          Nintendo Shuts Down “Donkey Kong” Remake For Roku   

Many gaming fans love to play old arcade games through emulators or remakes, but Nintendo is less amused by fan-made recreations. This week the company took down a remake of the 1981 classic Donkey Kong, as it infringes its copyrights. The developer of the remake is disappointed but doesn't plan to challenge Nintendo's request.

          Teamwork And Tactics Are The Only Way To Survive This Grim Darkness   

This isn't the boring kind of librarian with glasses and piles of books. More details for the upcoming Warhammer 40k first-person shooter Space Hulk: Deathwing reveal the Librarian squad leader and the complex tactical interplay between squad members.

Deathwing can be played solo (with computer-controlled teammates) or cooperatively, with an emphasis on teamwork. One player assumes the role of a Librarian, the leader who uses psychic abilities and issues commands to his faithful Terminators. Squads will engage in objective-based missions against overwhelming swarms of aliens. Outnumbered and outgunned, each member of the team will have to smartly coordinate use of their specialized loadouts.

Developer Streum On Studio has also implemented a dynamic A.I. system that seems similar to the Director in Left 4 Dead. Play well, and the alien foes will fight back even harder. If the squad is having a tough time, the A.I. will scale back the difficulty in real-time.

Space Hulk: Deathwing releases in 2016 for the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. For more, take a look at February's stylish trailer.


          Warhammer: 40,000 Going First-Person With Space Hulk: Deathwing   

After recently releasing Space Hulk, the strategy game, Warhammer is returning to the setting with a first-person shooter.

The Space Hulk is a gigantic floating mass of abandoned space ships and asteroids that floats aimlessly through the  Warhammer 40,000 universe holding unknown treasure and dangers. Space Hulk: Deathwing will put players in the gigantic robotic suit of a Deathwing Space Marines as he explores the Space Hulk battling Genestealers.

No platform or release date has been announced for Space Hulk: Deathwing, put publisher Focus Home Interactive and developer Streum On Studio are promising the game for next year. You can check out a teaser trailer for the game below.

          Proud Saiyan Warrior APK 1.0.3 By Chring Eclipse   

Ah Man! Finally the best DB fan made game based on the Legend of Buu Saga is out. However, the game takes place in a fantasy world (exclusive from Z GT Kai) where Vegeta will train hard in order to beat Goku by becoming a Super Saiyan 3. Be a Man and unleash the full power of the prince in the galaxy to attack and destroy your opponents at Ultra Sonic Speed. The ultimate destiny of Super Prince lies in your hands.


KEY FEATURES-

-A perfect DB style fast battle system true to the manga.
-Play as Majin Vegeta.
-Beautiful stunning graphics.
-Land and Air battle.
-An epic story line to follow.
-4 beautiful levels to clear with multiple stages.
-Different types of enemies and bosses to fight.
-Collect all the seven magic balls.
-An epic battle with eternal rival.
-Create your impact among Heroes in the Leader board.


CONTROLS-

X- Final Flash (Powerful technique to take down enemies in one go. It will consume the whole Final Flash Gauge and thus can not be done when not fully charged.)

Y- Sparking (Restores Final Flash Gauge by consuming some energy and provide defense against most of the attacks.)

A- Fight (Just hold the button to keep fighting with Punch and Kick.)

B- Transmission (Very useful in final battle with Goku to dodge his attacks. It also consumes some energy.)

The Green colored meter that appears above player is Health, the Yellow colored meter is Final Flash Gauge and the purple colored meter is energy. Energy is consumed each time you use Final Flash or Transmission technique and can not be replenished before the completion of a level. So it is advised to use it wisely.


NOTES-

-Bardock and Goku (Kakarot) are playable in two other games developed by me. See more games by this developer.

-In future other Warriors like Gohan Piccolo Trunks and fusions like Vegito Gogeta Gotenks from the popular anime series may get featured in upcoming games as playable characters so don't be angry or punch yourself or decide to take revenge by posting attack comments on this game xD.

-The game does not feature evil characters like Frieza Cell Broly Cooler Omega Shenron or any other Villain from the series.

-This game is inspired by Shin Tenkaichi Butoden Budokai Raging Extreme Xenoverse Bout Royale Another Road Dimension Legacy.

          Comment on What Does a Website Cost? Web Site Development Costs by Zach Katkin   
Hi Robert, Thank you very much for commenting and expressing your own issues. Because I'm not intimately involved with your project or these companies, the following is just speculation, but after 15 years in this industry here's some thoughts: <ul> <li>They're both (probably) guessing - Most clients don't understand how expensive and time-consuming the sales process is. Which isn't their fault, but it's sometimes difficult to get the most technically knowledgeable (or most important persons) to be a part of the sales process, so often times high level sales persons guess at the expense on a project based on experience. Not only that, even the most seasoned project manager, developer, etc. is also estimating based on experience. Every project (and CLIENT!) is different. Some steps that should take 1 hour, can take dozens, and other more complicated parts might be solved quickly depending on the project.</li> <li>One company might be outsourcing a significant amount of the work - We see this all of the time, particularly with low-ball competition in the area. The project is not being done by a team in-house with overhead, taxes, etc. - and as such huge costs can be slashed. This has pros and cons. If the team or person(s) managing the project and the team(s) executing are responsible and available it can be perfect. Often times though there's a cost involved in saving money, delays, failures to launch, communication issues, etc. That's why we use our in-house team and rarely sub-contract only particular skills/items when absolutely necessary</li> <li>One company is pricing things based on value - Over the years I've expressed a distaste for this kind of pricing, but as we've worked on more and more projects and with clients throughout the years I've understood this model better. If I know I'm going to deliver, and my services are in demand, and if others have tried but failed with lower pricing models why not charge based on what I know the value is as well as what the market will sustain?</li> <li>Communication is expensive - At $7500 I can say it's become hard to provide a custom site to clients with not only all of their technical needs met, but also (and perhaps most importantly) communication along the way. Customer service, communication, etc. at this level costs a lot of money. In fact around 30% of our time is spent not coding/designing, but on communication (internal or external) I wonder if the lower price company is taking this into account. Sure they can do a site for a lot less, but will you know what's happening along the way? If you don't will you be upset? What's the value to you of being taken through an amazing process? We've found clients hate to pay for that stuff if it's broken out, but hate us if we leave/left it out, so it's always a part of each project. . </ul> With more details I'd be happy to elaborate, but these were my initial thoughts. Zach

          mikekelly on "WPMU Slow for IE, Fast for Firefox"   

Ah. OK. So what looks to be happening is that WPMU is contacting both coltrane.wordpress.org (Gears of War fan there I take it?) and Technorati (208.66.64.132) in order to display news on the Dashboard (makes sense).

In our case, our firewall is blocking outbound http requests from that server (we are a university, and planning to deploy it externally soon, but are just testing right now).

So, WPMU sits and spins until the connection attempt times out. In the meantime, Netscape/Firefox renders the rest of the page, giving us the impression that everything is happening quickly, while IE waits until WPMU times out before displaying the entire page, making it seem as though the system runs slow for IE.

The solution was simple enough - just enable outbound connections to those two servers for the time being until we're ready to open the site up completely.

Does this make sense to those developer-types out there? Quick question: why contact Technorati? Is it for the Other Wordpress News portion of the dashboard?

Or especially when they decide the completely remove OpenGL support from their driver interface. That really makes it harder for the graphics vendors to get decent performance on OpenGL games like UT2004 or professional graphics applications like... well, most of them. I doubt this issue will be addressed anytime soon. Microsoft decided that nobody needs to use OpenGL when they could just port their stuff to DirectX. Obviously its the game developers' and professional graphics software developers' fault for choosing a non-Microsoft graphics library. They should have known better.

In my English class we were instructed to write a parody of A Modest Proposal by Jonathan Swift. We were to use reductio ad absurdum to demonstrate our opinions of a modern attitude. So, I wrote mine about the recent attempt to trade mark the word "Candy" by the creators of Candy Crush Saga. Enjoy. :)


A Candy Proposal

For preventing the upload of applications that damage the brand of large companies.

by Marcel Baarsch - Independent Software Developer



It is a woeful sight to those, who consume multiple forms of media on the internet, when they see the applications market crowded with applications that mimic those of higher quality in order to confuse them. This leaves substantial companies that develop content for mass consumption in danger of losing a small portion of it’s potential user base and suffering a slight decrease in their massive revenue. The employees of these companies instead of being able to work for their honest living are forced to employ their time in browsing online forums to beg for other software development opportunities or even offer up hacking skills in exchange for bitcoin.

I think it is agreed by large corporations and lawyers, that this monumental number of applications that damage the brand of large companies is representative of the pitiful state of the free market. Therefore, whomever can find a fair and easy method for protecting the brand of immense companies would deserve as to have his statue set of as a preserver of this market.

As for my own part, having observed the  ineffectiveness of the trademarking of entire titles, I humbly propose that large companies should be allowed to trademark single common words involved in their titles such as “candy” or “saga” and should posses the right to, through the use of legal threats, kindly ask any developer using those trademarked words to remove their application from the market. In fact, these companies should be assigned large portions of the dictionary for which they can sue any other developer using words found in their portion of the dictionary. To further the security of these brands, any small developer who infrindges on these newly assigned trademarks must surrender their application into the posession of the trademark holder so that the trademark holder may market this application as their own if they choose to do so. Afterwards, the holder of the trademark may execute the infrindging developer and use their remains to fertizile plants located on the trademark holder's property.

          Relaxing Tips for Color-Treated Hair   

You want to be very cautious when relaxing color treated hair. If you do it the same day as your perm, when the cuticle layers of your hair are more open from the relaxer or perming process, the color will penetrate deeper into the hair shaft. This is both better for the conditioning benefits as well as making the color last longer. If it's a semi or demi-permanent color like SoftSheen-Carson's Dark and Lovely Reviving Color, they may also be done the same day, depending on the condition of your hair. However, for all permanent color, such as Dark and Lovely Permanent Color or Dark and Lovely Color Confidence for 100% gray coverage, we recommend that you wait at least 2 weeks after your perm or relaxer. This is the best possible timing for coloring relaxed or permed hair.

If you have color in your hair and plan to swim at any time in chlorinated water, you must protect your hair. The best way is to wear a swimming cap. If you can't, or won't do that, the next best way is to thoroughly wet your hair before you go into the water and apply some conditioner such as Roots of Nature® Reconstructing Deep Treatment or Roots of Nature Healing Thickening Cream and don't rinse it out. If you don't do this, the chlorine will absorbed into your hair and may cause your hair color to fade, develop a green cast or for darker colors to take on a brassy tone. If you already have the problem described above, you will need to do one or more clarifying treatments that will chelate out the chlorine from your hair. SoftSheen-Carson's Roots of Nature Nurturing Repair Shampoo is a great luxurious and purifying shampoo for the hair and scalp.

Remember that for every level of color that you want to go lighter than your natural shade, the dryer hair tends to become. This means that when you go from darker to lighter, it's an absolute must that you deep treat your hair on a regular basis.

When you color fine hair, it will process faster because of the porosity of fine hair.

When it comes to black hair, we recommend that you absolutely see a color professional if you are planning to make a major color change in your hair.

When you are going to color your hair at home, or have been doing so, we strongly recommend that you do a patch test. Instructions on how to do this should be described in the kit instructions included with your coloring kit. Briefly, what you do is mix up a small amount of the color formula and apply it to a small section at the back of your ear or in the fold of your arm and wait 24 hours to see if there are any allergic reactions to the new formula. If all is well, you may also want to do a strand test near the root area and process as per the color kits instructions. This way you will know the timing to achieve great color results. 

DEFINING TYPES OF COLORS:
Temporary Hair Color: usually lasts from shampoo to shampoo and is deposited only on the outside of the hair.

Semi-Permanent Hair Color: usually lasts from 4-8 shampoos (depending on how they are processed) have no ammonia or peroxide. They can blend in grey and may become permanent on previously permed or colored hair. Dark and Lovely Reviving Color is the perfect choice.

Demi-Permanent Hair Color: usually does not contain ammonia and uses a low volume developer generally under 10 volume to help activate the color. They cannot lighten hair. They can stain the hair if there is a porosity issue and not be removed by shampooing especially on permed or previously colored hair depending on how they are processed.

Permanent Hair Color: changes the natural color of your hair. They can lighten or darken. They contain varying degrees of ammonia or other catalyst and are mixed with varying degrees of peroxide developers to form a color formula. They last about 4-8 weeks. These include Dark & Lovely Permanent Color and Dark and Lovely Color Confidence.

          Re: Moodle 3.3 upgrade   

by Ken Task.  

So the script installer provided by the hoster (which you pay for) did an upgrade skipping a version from 3.1 to 3.3 ... skipping 3.2.  And, lemmie guess, helpdesk where you host said to come to community forums for resolution to the problem ... a script hoster provides you did the upgrade.   No one in these forums works for hoster nor the company that makes the software that did the upgrade ....  Hmmmmm ....

Anyhoo ... other than checking permissions/ownership, might try turning on Debugging (all the way to developer) and try to download something/anything.   See if debug says anything.

You might also look at your apache (assuming you are running apache) error logs for things like 'warnings' related to downloads.   Those warnings are not errors serious enough to halt something but might give a clue.

Right after the upgrade, did the site look 'wonky'?   or was the site slower than before?

Go to Site Admin menu, Server, Environment and first update the component - link in upper right corner of that screen.

What, iF anything, does the environment check show that isn't 'green' or OK?

All hosters are not alike ... mind sharing with whom you host?   And is it a cheapo package?

'spirit of sharing', Ken

          7 reasons to consider amending your HOA’s governing documents   
In other posts we have discussed a homeowner association's governing documents. Many communities were established 20-40 years ago with governing documents that worked well for the developer, and for the most part the community association. However, many of these governing documents are outdated. Virginia and federal laws pertaining to community associations have changed substantially. If your board of directors has not engaged in an audit of your communities governing documents in the past 5-7 years, it should. What is an “audit” of our governing documents? An “audit” of your documents is an in-depth review by your HOA's board of directors in conjunction with your association attorney. The Board reviews each document noting any sections that lack clarity, are no longer enforced, appear to not apply to your community, protect a long-gone developer, or do not provide the association with adequate remedies. The Board prepares a list of concerns or issues facing the community, such as, homes that are not being maintained, large amounts of delinquent assessments, or enforcement capabilities of the association. The Board provides this information to the association attorney.

TK, After reading the developer's description, I took the statement to mean something different: "...reduce the size of your photos several times without quality loss..."; i.e., shrink the data size of the file as stored without color/resolution quality loss (not the pixel dimensions). However, as noted in quick evaluation tests posted by others, it may not always work out that way (comment #5, Tim, who did not note what kind/format of file he used for his test, though likely JPEG files). Perhaps it works great for big/uncompressed RGB-type files?

          Keep CALM and Query On - Joe Hellerstein, RICON2012   

Conventional distributed systems wisdom dictates that perfect consistency is too expensive to guarantee in general, and consistency mechanisms—if you use them at all—should be reserved for infrequent, small-scale, mission-critical tasks. Like most design maxims, these ideas are not so easy to translate into practice; all kinds of unavoidable tactical questions pop up, e.g.:

* Exactly where in my multifaceted system is loose consistency “good enough” to meet application needs?
* How do I know that my “mission-critical” software isn’t tainted by my “best effort” components?
* How do I ensure that my design maxims are maintained as software and developer teams evolve?

Until recently, answers to these questions have been more a matter of folklore than mathematics. (One way to tell the difference: a good answer is enforceable by a compiler.)

In this talk, I will describe the CALM Theorem that links Consistency And Logical Monotonicity, and discuss how it can inform distributed software development. I'll also give a taste of Bloom, a "disorderly" distributed programming language whose compiler can automatically answer questions like the ones above. Along the way, I'll try to shed light on side questions like "Should Paxos exist?" and "Causality: What is it good for?"

          How Toronto got the CN Tower   

The CN Tower just turned 41 years old, and you'd still be hard-pressed to name a building that's defined Toronto more powerfully. Love it or loathe it, the massive concrete structure has dominated the city's skyline and provided a visual reference since 1976.

The tower itself is something of an oddity. Its practical use is as an AM, FM, UHF, and cell transmission tower, but a built-in observation deck, glass floor and rooftop fright-fest entice more than 1.5 million tourists a year up the dizzying exterior elevators.

Sydney has the Opera House and Harbour Bridge, New York has the Brooklyn Bridge, and Toronto has the CN Tower. The slender concrete column is an international icon that has made the city instantly recognizable. Few buildings are able to do that.

This is the story of how Toronto's architectural wonder came to be.

toronto cn tower

The land now occupied by the CN Tower's hexagonal foundation was, in its original form, water. Almost everything south of Front Street is built on fill, dumped construction material dropped in to the lake over the last 100 years that gradually extended the shoreline south to its present position.

The new space gave Canadian National Railways room to build a tangle of sidings, roundhouses, and train sheds around the Union Station corridor.

For much of its early life the reclaimed land south of Front Street was a sprawling industrial area of soot-stained concrete and surface parking. The Gardiner Expressway zipped past just to the south and silos dotted the lake shore.

toronto cn tower

It was in the 1960s, when Toronto's buildings began to head skyward, that things began to change.

As Mies van der Rohe's Toronto-Dominon Centre then Commerce Court West each claimed the title as tallest in the city, TV and radio reception became patchy and viewers increasingly found episodes of Ozzie and Harriet, Lassie, and re-runs of The Andy Griffith Show were being blasted into static oblivion.

The solution was to build a transmission antenna tall enough to beat even the highest Bay Street bank tower. The project was also a good excuse to partake in a little building bravado by snatching the title of the tallest freestanding structure from Moscow's Ostankino Tower, also a TV and radio mast.

toronto cn tower

In fact, the tower itself was one of the few pieces of the larger Metro Centre project ever to be built. Had it been realized in its original form, Union Station would have been demolished and the Yonge line would have gained a Queens Quay spur through an expansive new retail and commercial district.

Early plans for the broadcasting tower were vaguely similar in appearance to Seattle's Space Needle and developers promised a large triangular reflecting pool surrounded by a 10-acre park at the base of the tower for skating and wading. A mall and beer garden would also be built, they said.

toronto cn tower

Metro Centre died when the provincial and federal government recommended Union Station be retained and CN and CP, the principal backers, subsequently pulled out. The earmarked land would, however, provide space for the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, CityPlace, and CN's new radio mast.

At the time CN and CP jointly owned CNCP Telecommunications, a company developed out of the company's old wire service businesses, so building a large concrete signal hub wasn't entirely unusual for the transportation company.

toronto cn tower

At 553 metres, the scale of the CN Tower was immense. 56 metric tonnes of soil was hauled out of the ground for the 17-metre foundation pit. The hexagonal structural core of the tower was surrounded by poured concrete shaped using a massive mold called a slipform.

Each new section was built on top of the last, aided by a crane perched on a 500-tonne platform on top of the rising column. 1,537 workers worked on the project 24 hours a day, five days a week, from official groundbreaking ceremony on February 6, 1973.

The tower always had its detractors. The Canadian Owners and Pilots Association warned that "sooner or later an aircraft is bound to strike it possibly killing people in the tower and on the ground as well as those in the aircraft."

The Federation of Ontario Naturalists estimated 1,000 birds a day could be killed in foggy conditions during peak migration periods."We'll live to regret it if we let this monstrous dart go up," Alderman Elizabeth Eayrs told city council.

toronto cn tower

Ironically, improved reception actually had a negative impacted on some TV content. As a TV writer for in the Toronto Star predicted, the stronger signal killed the tradition of American networks releasing their new shows on Canadian television ahead of the U.S. premier in an attempt to discourage cross-border viewing.

The added range from the new CN transmitters made Canadian signals stronger than those that used to bleed over the border from New York, which would potentially allow Americans to easily tune in to Canadian stations and catch a sneaky glimpse of All In The Family.

Despite the outcries and accusations CN was building an "obtrusive monument to itself," the gigantic, $21 million construction project was allowed by council, but not before it had already reached 300 metres in height.

toronto cn tower

By August 1973 the concrete stump was the tallest structure in Toronto and in February 1974 it claimed the crown as the tallest in Canada, taking the mantle from the Inco Superstack, a giant chimney in Sudbury.

Just 18 months after the foundations were scooped out, work began on the seven-storey observation deck, revolving restaurant, and radome - the inflatable white donut-shaped object at the bottom of the main pod where much of the communications and other electronics are housed.

CHUM-FM, CBC Radio 2 (then CBC Stereo), CKFM, CHFI, and CHIN were the first stations to move their equipment in '73.

toronto cn tower

Unlike the main support column, the pod was supported by a steel frame. Dizzying photos show metalworkers straddling massive I-beams with nothing between them and a 1,100-foot drop to the rail tracks below.

Above the top SkyPod, the top observation level, a Sikorsky helicopter named Olga was called in to complete the final step - hauling up the 102-metre antenna mast in pieces from the ground. The 42 sections were delivered in March 1975 and would be the last that contributed to the overall height of the CN Tower.

toronto cn tower

Disaster almost struck as Olga was being used to dismantle the crane and construction platform that was perched at the top of the concrete core. While removing the first piece of the boom, a sudden shift caused the supporting bolts to seize, effectively tethering the aircraft to the tower.

With fuel running low, steel workers had to burn off the stuck bolts to avoid a crash. The helicopter landed with 14 minutes of gas to spare.

The incident underlined the need for adequate safety features in large freestanding towers. In the event of a fire, the main 1,776-step staircase would be one only two safe exits from the main pod.

To illustrate the dangers, on 27 August, 2000 the Ostankino Tower caught fire 458 metres above the ground, killing three people.

toronto cn tower

To combat these risks, the CN Tower is fitted with fire-proof materials and an extensive sprinkler system fed by a pair of 68,160-litre water tanks at the top of the main column. One elevator is powered by emergency generators and is designed to remain active in an emergency.

A fire house on the ground is capable of reaching the upper levels and, just to be safe, the kitchen in the restaurant doesn't use an open flame during cooking.

Naturally, the current owners are keen to stress there has never been a fire since the building opened to the public, but that doesn't mean it's never happened.

On July 8, 1975, molten metal from a welder's torch dripped down an elevator shaft and ignited a patch of tar-based waterproofing, leading to two uncontrolled fires about 150-metres above the restaurant.

toronto cn tower

Four nearby workers scrambled to safety up a flight of stairs while others on the lower levels were able to descend. Chemical extinguishers put out the fire while the emergency services were assembling at the base of the tower but the damage was estimated at around $1,000. The four welders workers were treated for smoke inhalation and minor cuts.

The CN Tower was officially completed on April 2, 1975 and opened to the public on June 26. A variety of attractions have been added since: the highest wine cellar in the world, the incredibly unsettling glass floor, and most recently the terrifying EdgeWalk experience.

CN sold its stake in the tower in 1995, prompting a crisis about what CN should stand for now the railways were no longer involved. The new owners opted for the slightly clunky "Canada's National Tower," which is admittedly better than the Canada Lands Company Tower.

Maple Leafs fans hoped the new 16.7 million colour LED light display that adorns the elevator shafts and main pod could be used as a goal light during their heartbreaking and brief cup run this year. No dice, said management. It's Canada's tower - no corporations allowed.

As soon as I had my info page online, I asked Twitter to accept TweetMyPage as a Twitter application, and to mark the messages posted with TweetMyPage with "from TweetMyPage". Note for developers: There is a form to fill on the Twitter API page. It's really fast, and one day later I got the answer that it was accepted.

As you may have heard (and as was mentioned in an earlier article), on recent OpenBSD snapshots we have KARL, which means that the kernel is relinked so each boot comes with a new kernel where all .o files are linked in random order and with random offsets. Theo de Raadt summarized the status in a message to the tech@ mailing list, subject kernel relinking as follows:

5 weeks ago at d2k17 I started work on randomized kernels. I've been having conversations with other developers for nearly 5 years on the topic... but never got off to a good start, probably because I was trying to pawn the work off on others.

Build your dream ride with an unbelievable range of cars and customizations. Launch yourself between chaos and control as you hit the loud pedal and roll into underground car culture.

CUSTOMIZE EXTREME RIDES
Pick up the real-world cars you’ve always wanted, from the Subaru BRZ to the BMW M4, McLaren 650s, Porsche 911, and more. Then trick them out with the hottest customization system on mobile, from spots like the Mod Shop and the Black Market, giving you over 2.5 million custom combos to play with. Your rides are waiting – take them to the stages or streets to go head-to-head versus the competition and prove yourself.

Steer onto the streets of Blackridge, driving reckless and juiced as sparks fly. Accelerate over jumps and around debris, into traffic, against walls, and through high-speed Nitro Zones. Flip on the nitrous and thrust yourself into another level of adrenaline-fueled driving and drifting. Around every corner is a fresh race as you clash with local crews and local cops. It’s a world full of wannabe drivers – can you stay in front and earn respect?

RACE TO WIN
Never back down as you race anyone crazy enough to take you on, leave them gapped, and increase your rep. Dig, drift, drag, and roll your ride to wins with police on your tail, hitting each inch of the map hard by the time you reach the big end. Burn rubber in over 1,000 challenging races – and that’s just the starting line. Be notorious, own the streets, and score the world’s best cars. Because one ride is never enough!

          The Switch to Linux - Introduction   


I've had my eye on Microsoft’s windows 8 for a while now. Some of the ideas initially sounded quite promising; windows running on the ARM architecture along with a GUI that could work well on both the tablet and traditional PC form-factors. But as time went on, my excitement started to turn to worry. And after trying many of the developer previews and now the final releases, I can safely say I don't really like the new direction of windows. That's not say that there isn't some really great things about the windows 8 platform, there is, but it may not be suitable for everyone, especially those of us who might be considered "power users". This is why I've decided to begin making the switch to Linux. I want to make this transition from Windows to Linux a public and open experience, in the spirit of the open source concept and in the hope that my successes and failures may help others who are considering the switch as well.

Let me just quickly explain a little about myself. I've been working for a media company doing mostly graphic design and video production for the past four years. Some of my everyday duties include, creating advertisements, designing digital signs / menu boards, producing GUI elements for interactive displays as well as web design. I have also been doing a lot of programming and have created applications for the RCMP and a few educational institutions. I also wrote the digital signage application that my company now uses to deploy our product across North America. I am by no means an expert in the realm of programming, but I have taught myself enough to be fairly useful. I use dozens of windows applications everyday to do what I do, so this switch to Linux will most likely be a slow transition. In the meantime I will keep my Windows 7 system on hand until I no longer require it, which may be a while.

Although I have had my eye on many Linux distributions for a while I am a total noob and only really tinkered with a few so this blog will be coming from a new users point of view. In saying that I apologize to any Linux gurus who may be offended by my ignorance or terminology but... get over it. We've all got to start somewhere. I will try to talk a little bit about every step I take in setting up a Linux system and getting productive on it. Please feel free to comment and let me know if you have any tips or suggestions for a new Linux user that may have helped you in the beginning.

In my talk, I intend to share on the avenues of freelancing and remote working as possible employment/business opportunity for the ordinary, unemployed person in Zimbabwe. I will share on the benefits of both to the developer as well as the nation. I will also share on how to get started as a freelancer or remote worker, with the aim of presenting new and possible employment/entrepreneurship avenues for fellow developers in Zimbabwe.

          Rethinking Telecom Regulation from the Ground Up   

Has the digital economy reached a point where all ex ante regulations should be discarded?

Three top free-market policy experts think so. The need for a uniform ex post approach to overseeing the Internet sector as a whole was the rough consensus of yesterday's panel, A New Framework the FCC, sponsored in Washington by The Mercatus Center of George Mason University.

For those not versed in legalese, or were absent the day their Latin class covered prepositions, ex ante regulations are generally prophylactic-they address harms that regulators speculate might emerge from a given course of market action. Conversely, ex post regulation comes in response to a situation where actual harms can be alleged. Network neutrality, being debated again this week on Capitol Hill, is an example of ex ante regulation because it would place restraints on how carriers can manage their networks purely as a precaution against potential abuse.

The Department of Justice's lawsuit to stop the merger of AT&T and T-Mobile, on the other hand, serves to illustrate ex post regulation.

As a jumping off point, the panel used a paper by economist and GMU law professor Jeffrey Eisenach that explored theories of broadband competition. The paper, published in June, challenges the "edge-core" model of the Internet ecosystem, offering instead a more inclusive (and accurate) platform of four "perfect complements:" communications, applications, content and devices. "Take any one out and you don't have [an Internet] product," Eisenach said.

Each one of the four segments has its own group of competitors, as well as a degree of overlap with those in other segments, Eisenach said, yet of the four, only communications is regulated differently-largely with ex ante rules. This needs to change if the digital economy is to reach its fullest potential, he said.

Using this reasoning, Eisenach, along with the other two panel members--Ray Gifford, former chairman of the Colorado Public Utilities Commission, and Georgetown law professor Howard Shelanski, former chief economist for the FCC--said the best reform would move communications companies toward a regime of ex post regulation, in line with the way the government treats most of the other sectors of the economy, including Internet content, applications and devices.

Still, the panel cited some potential dangers, including how aggressive at any given time, U.S might be in antitrust enforcement. Shelanski pointed to the Federal Trade Commission's current antitrust investigation of Google, and the agency's recent statements about Twitter, as troublesome, especially as the FTC has been less inclined to apply a consumer harm test.

Gifford, however, did say that in an ex post regime such as antitrust, there tends to be a greater degree of honesty about what can be known about markets.

There's something to be said for this. Returning to network neutrality, the theory of which hinges on accepting that the outmoded edge-core model still applies, and we see the debate has gone completely off-base. The idea that carrier networks can, let alone should, be prohibited from incorporating any management or QoS functions on data is ludicrous given what applications developers want the network to do. Yet the misperception exists, most recently voiced by Sen. Al Franken, that some Eden-like era of network neutrality once existed and needs to be preserved in order to safeguard innovation.

Compare this to the discussion around the AT&T-T-Mobile suit, where the debate centers on market concentration and spectrum availability. No matter which way you come down on the merger, these are the right questions to consider.

          We Don't Need No Stinking Badges   

But stickers are sorta cool. iOS 10 brought stickers to Messages. With your iPhone or your iPad you can embed stickers in a thread, adjust their size, rotate them or peel and place stickers on top of bubbles or photos in your conversations. I found some animated stickers that look a bit like my dog, Jezebel but there are lots of stickers out there to buy at the somewhat hidden App store for stickers.

Apple is great about helping you create your own stickers without any coding experience. Stickers are created with image files in PNG, JPEG or GIF format. They can also be animated in APNG or GIF format. You can learn about creating your own sticker packs at Apple’s Creating Stickers for iMessage page.

Okay, where is this sorta hidden sticker store? First off, you can’t find it on your Mac. This is an iOS thing. The stickers will display in Messages on your Mac but you cannot send them. So, here’s how to find the sticker store on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch:

  1. Open Messages on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch and tap a conversation in the list or create a new one. You need to have a conversation going to find the store.
  2. Tap the Apps button (it resembles an App Store icon) to the left of the text entry field to access the Messages app drawer.
  3. Push the App Shelf button in the bottom left corner (it is four dots in a grid).
  4. Tap the Store button.
  5. The Messages App Store appears in an overlay, allowing you to:

    • Browse featured sticker packs

    • Browsing sticker packs by category

    • See all sticker packs in the App Store

    • Find specific sticker packs

  6. Buy by category or individual pack

To make sure you have this newly purchased sticker pack available be sure to set the toggle Automatically Add Apps under the Messages App Store’s Manage tab to the ON position. If you prefer, of course, you can individually manage each sticker pack to turn it on and off.

Now you have spent your $0.99 with ApplePay for that great sticker pack. How do you use them in a conversation? Easy peasy…

  1. Open Messages on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch and start a conversation or pick an old one.
  2. Tap the Apps button to the left of the text entry field to reveal the Messages app drawer at the bottom of the interface.
  3. Now you can either pick a previously used sticker from Recents or choose a specific sticker from one of your installed sticker packs.

Then you just tap on that sticker to add it to the conversation. You can add some text to the sticker and hit send.

You can peel a sticker and stick in anywhere in a chat bubble. You just tap and hold the sticker and then drag it over your selected chat bubble. You can do the same thing with photos that you have sent in chat. Just tap and hold a sticker and drag it onto the photo in the conversation and let it go.

Rotate your sticker using two fingers. Tap and hold the sticker you wish to rotate and then tap and hold with another finger and swipe up or down to rotate the sticker. You can make it bigger, too, by swiping left or right.

There are a lot of stickers to choose from and while it does get boring after a bit at least for me it is a great way to spice up a conversation!

          Jim Allchin's PDC 2005 Keynote Highlights   

Originally posted on: http://geekswithblogs.net/evjen/archive/2005/09/13/53712.aspx

After Bill Gates spoke, Jim Allchin came out and gave a presentation geared at developers with the promise of showing lots of code (which was done by Don Box and company). Here are some of the highlights from Jim's presentation:

  • First Jim showed everyone an IBM computer from the Microsoft museum with Windows 1.03 loaded. He then showed us the OS booting up and then pulled up the game of Reversi. Funny, I remember all those screens he showed ... I must be getting old. The point of showing that is that he was focusing on the fact that Windows was entering into its 3rd decade. Wow! Then he showed a game (video of it really) that was being built by a company called Crytex and how outstanding (or SUPER as Microsoft people would say) it was with graphics. It was rather spectacular.
  • Jim announced that we are all getting Build 5219 of Vista today.
  • The Windows platform consists of Presentation, Data, Communications, and Base Operating System Services.
  • Vista will include hardware monitoring.
  • Vista will require 50% less reboots.
  • Vista will allow for fast on/off cycles.
  • There will be a reboot manager in Vista.
  • There will not be a defrag available in Vista as this is something that should automatically be done by the OS. Therefore, Vista will be defragging in the background on its own.
  • Introducing SuperFetch - knows what you work with the most (such as Outlook) and loads it into memory for you in anticipation of you working with it and therefore will have a SUPER fast launch process.
  • Using a USB memory stick will allow Vista to add it to the larger pool of available memory for the computer! Wow.
  • Hotmail will be changed soon so that it is more like Windows Outlook Web Access.
  • Introducing Atlas - an AJAX style (I was surprised he used this word actually) web development.
  • Introducing WPF/E “Everywhere“ - a slimmed down version of WPF that will work everywhere (devices).

Then Jim mentioned to the crowd that he had a “limited” number of these great devices that he used in a demo which were normally $1000 and that we would get it for $149 from ComNet. Once he said that, 1,500 people got up and ran for the door - it was rather funny! I would have kept that news till the end if I were him. Oh well - lesson learned.


          New Semantic Publishing Benchmark Record   

There is a new SPB (Semantic Publishing Benchmark) 256 Mtriple record with Virtuoso.

As before, the result has been measured with the feature/analytics branch of the v7fasttrack open source distribution, and it will soon be available as a preconfigured Amazon EC2 image. The updated benchmarks AMI with this version of the software will be out there within the next week, to be announced on this blog.

On the Cost of RDF Query Optimization

RDF query optimization is harder than the relational equivalent; first, because there are more joins, hence an NP complete explosion of plan search space, and second, because cardinality estimation is harder and usually less reliable. The work on characteristic sets, pioneered by Thomas Neumann in RDF3X, uses regularities in structure for treating properties usually occurring in the same subject as columns of a table. The same idea is applied for tuning physical representation in the joint Virtuoso / MonetDB work published at WWW 2015.

The Virtuoso results discussed here, however, are all based on a single RDF quad table with Virtuoso's default index configuration.

Introducing query plan caching raises the Virtuoso score from 80 qps to 144 qps at the 256 Mtriple scale. The SPB queries are not extremely complex; lookups with many more triple patterns exist in actual workloads, e.g., Open PHACTS. In such applications, query optimization indeed dominates execution times. In SPB, data volumes touched by queries grow near linearly with data scale. At the 256 Mtriple scale, nearly half of CPU cycles are spent deciding a query plan. Below are the CPU cycles for execution and compilation per query type, sorted by descending sum of the times, scaled to milliseconds per execution. These are taken from a one minute sample of running at full throughput.

Test system is the same used before in the TPC-H series: dual Xeon E5-2630 Sandy Bridge, 2 x 6 cores x 2 threads, 2.3GHz, 192 GB RAM.

We measure the compile and execute times, with and without using hash join. When considering hash join, the throughput is 80 qps. When not considering hash join, the throughput is 110 qps. With query plan caching, the throughput is 145 qps whether or not hash join is considered. Using hash join is not significant for the workload but considering its use in query optimization leads to significant extra work.

Considering hash join always slows down compilation, and sometimes improves and sometimes worsens execution. Some improvement in cost-model and plan-space traversal-order is possible, but altogether removing compilation via caching is better still. The results are as expected, since a lookup workload such as SPB has little use for hash join by nature.

The rationale for considering hash join in the first place is that analytical workloads rely heavily on this. A good TPC-H score is simply unfeasible without this as previously discussed on this blog. If RDF is to be a serious contender beyond serving lookups, then hash join is indispensable. The decision for using this however depends on accurate cardinality estimates on either side of the join.

Previous work (e.g., papers from FORTH around MonetDB) advocates doing away with a cost model altogether, since one is hard and unreliable with RDF anyway. The idea is not without its attraction but will lead to missing out of analytics or to relying on query hints for hash join.

The present Virtuoso thinking is that going to rule based optimization is not the preferred solution, but rather using characteristic sets for reducing triples into wider tables, which also cuts down on plan search space and increases reliability of cost estimation.

When looking at execution alone, we see that actual database operations are low in the profile, with memory management taking the top 19%. This is due to CONSTRUCT queries allocating small blocks for returning graphs, which is entirely avoidable.


          Rethink Big and Europe?s Position in Big Data   

I will here take a break from core database and talk a bit about EU policies for research funding.

I had lunch with Stefan Manegold of CWI last week, where we talked about where European research should go. Stefan is involved in RETHINK big, a European research project for compiling policy advice regarding big data for EC funding agencies. As part of this, he is interviewing various stakeholders such as end user organizations and developers of technology.

RETHINK big wants to come up with a research agenda primarily for hardware, anything from faster networks to greener data centers. CWI represents software expertise in the consortium.

So, we went through a regular questionnaire about how we see the landscape. I will summarize this below, as this is anyway informative.

Core competence

My own core competence is in core database functionality, specifically in high performance query processing, scale-out, and managing schema-less data. Most of the Virtuoso installed base is in the RDF space, but most potential applications are in fact outside of this niche.

User challenges

The life sciences vertical is the one in which I have the most application insight, from going to Open PHACTS meetings and holding extensive conversations with domain specialists. We have users in many other verticals, from manufacturing to financial services, but there I do not have as much exposure to the actual applications.

Having said this, the challenges throughout tend to be in diversity of data. Every researcher has their MySQL database or spreadsheet, and there may not even be a top level catalogue of everything. Data formats are diverse. Some people use linked data (most commonly RDF) as a top level metadata format. The application data, such as gene sequences or microarray assays, reside in their native file formats and there is little point in RDF-izing these.

There are also public data resources that are published in RDF serializations as vendor-neutral, self-describing format. Having everything as triples, without a priori schema, makes things easier to integrate and in some cases easier to describe and query.

So, the challenge is in the labor intensive nature of data integration. Data comes with different levels of quantity and quality, from hand-curated to NLP extractions. Querying in the single- or double-digit terabyte range with RDF is quite possible, as we have shown many times on this blog, but most use cases do not even go that far. Anyway, what we see on the field is primarily a data diversity game. The scenario is data integration; the technology we provide is database. The data transformation proper, data cleansing, units of measure, entity de-duplication, and such core data-integration functions are performed using diverse, user-specific means.

Jerven Bolleman of the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics is a user of ours with whom we have long standing discussions on the virtues of federated data and querying. I advised Stefan to go talk to him; he has fresh views about the volume challenges with unexpected usage patterns. Designing for performance is tough if the usage pattern is out of the blue, like correlating air humidity on the day of measurement with the presence of some genomic patterns. Building a warehouse just for that might not be the preferred choice, so the problem field is not exhausted. Generally, I’d go for warehousing though.

What technology would you like to have? Network or power efficiency?

OK. Even a fast network is a network. A set of processes on a single shared-memory box is also a kind of network. InfiniBand is maybe half the throughput and 3x the latency of single threaded interprocess communication within one box. The operative word is latency. Making large systems always involves a network or something very much like one in large scale-up scenarios.

On the software side, next to nobody understands latency and contention; yet these are the one core factor in any pursuit of scalability. Because of this situation, paradigms like MapReduce and bulk synchronous parallel (BSP) processing have become popular because these take the communication out of the program flow, so the programmer cannot muck this up, as otherwise would happen with the inevitability of destiny. Of course, our beloved SQL or declarative query in general does give scalability in many tasks without programmer participation. Datalog has also been used as a means of shipping computation around, as in the the work of Hellerstein.

There are no easy solutions. We have built scale-out conscious, vectorized extensions to SQL procedures where one can express complex parallel, distributed flows, but people do not use or understand these. These are very useful, even indispensable, but only on the inside, not as a programmer-facing construct. MapReduce and BSP are the limit of what a development culture will absorb. MapReduce and BSP do not hide the fact of distributed processing. What about things that do? Parallel, partitioned extensions to Fortran arrays? Functional languages? I think that all the obvious aids to parallel/distributed programming have been conceived of. No silver bullet; just hard work. And above all the discernment of what paradigm fits what problem. Since these are always changing, there is no finite set of rules, and no substitute for understanding and insight, and the latter are vanishingly scarce. "Paradigmatism," i.e., the belief that one particular programming model is a panacea outside of its original niche, is a common source of complexity and inefficiency. This is a common form of enthusiastic naïveté.

If you look at power efficiency, the clusters that are the easiest to program consist of relatively few high power machines and a fast network. A typical node size is 16+ cores and 256G or more RAM. Amazon has these in entirely workable configurations, as documented earlier on this blog. The leading edge in power efficiency is in larger number of smaller units, which makes life again harder. This exacerbates latency and forces one to partition the data more often, whereas one can play with replication of key parts of data more freely if the node size is larger.

One very specific item where research might help without having to rebuild the hardware stack would be better, lower-latency exposure of networks to software. Lightweight threads and user-space access, bypassing slow protocol stacks, etc. MPI has some of this, but maybe more could be done.

So, I will take a cluster of such 16-core, 256GB machines on a faster network, over a cluster of 1024 x 4G mobile phones connected via USB. Very selfish and unecological, but one has to stay alive and life is tough enough as is.

Are there pressures to adapt business models based on big data?

The transition from capex to opex may be approaching maturity, as there have been workable cloud configurations for the past couple of years. The EC2 from way back, with at best a 4 core 16G VM and a horrible network for $2/hr, is long gone. It remains the case that 4 months of 24x7 rent in the cloud equals the purchase price of physical hardware. So, for this to be economical long-term at scale, the average utilization should be about 10% of the peak, and peaks should not be on for more than 10% of the time.

So, database software should be rented by the hour. A 100-150% markup for the $2.80 a large EC2 instance costs would be reasonable. Consider that 70% of the cost in TPC benchmarks is database software.

There will be different pricing models combining different up-front and per-usage costs, just as there are for clouds now. If the platform business goes that way and the market accepts this, then systems software will follow. Price/performance quotes should probably be expressed as speed/price/hour instead of speed/price.

The above is rather uncontroversial but there is no harm restating these facts. Reinforce often.

Well, the question is raised, what should Europe do that would have tangible impact in the next 5 years?

This is a harder question. There is some European business in wide area and mobile infrastructures. Competing against Huawei will keep them busy. Intel and Mellanox will continue making faster networks regardless of European policies. Intel will continue building denser compute nodes, e.g., integrated Knight’s Corner with dual IB network and 16G fast RAM on chip. Clouds will continue making these available on demand once the technology is in mass production.

What’s the next big innovation? Neuromorphic computing? Quantum computing? Maybe. For now, I’d just do more engineering along the core competence discussed above, with emphasis on good marketing and scalable execution. By this I mean trained people who know something about deployment. There is a huge training gap. In the would-be "Age of Data," knowledge of how things actually work and scale is near-absent. I have offered to do some courses on this to partners and public alike, but I need somebody to drive this show; I have other things to do.

I have been to many, many project review meetings, mostly as a project partner but also as reviewer. For the past year, the EC has used an innovation questionnaire at the end of the meetings. It is quite vague, and I don’t think it delivers much actionable intelligence.

What would deliver this would be a venture capital type activity, with well-developed networks and active participation in developing a business. The EC is not now set up to perform this role, though. But the EC is a fairly large and wealthy entity, so it could invest some money via this type of channel. Also there should be higher individual incentives and rewards for speed and excellence. Getting the next Horizon 2020 research grant may be good, but better exists. The grants are competitive enough and the calls are not bad; they follow the times.

In the projects I have seen, productization does get some attention, e.g., the LOD2 stack, but it is not something that is really ongoing or with dedicated commercial backing. It may also be that there is no market to justify such dedicated backing. Much of the RDF work has been "me, too" — let’s do what the real database and data integration people do, but let’s just do this with triples. Innovation? Well, I took the best of the real DB world and adapted this to RDF, which did produce a competent piece of work with broad applicability, extending outside RDF. Is there better than this? Well, some of the data integration work (e.g., LIMES) is not bad, and it might be picked up by some of the players that do this sort of thing in the broader world, e.g., Informatica, the DI suites of big DB vendors, Tamr, etc. I would not know if this in fact adds value to the non-RDF equivalents; I do not know the field well enough, but there could be a possibility.

The recent emphasis for benchmarking, spearheaded by Stefano Bertolo is good, as exemplified by the LDBC FP7. There should probably be one or two projects of this sort going at all times. These make challenges known and are an effective means of guiding research, with a large multiplier: Once a benchmark gets adopted, infinitely more work goes into solving the problem than in stating it in the first place.

The aims and calls are good. The execution by projects is variable. For 1% of excellence, there apparently must be 99% of so-and-so, but this is just a fact of life and not specific to this context. The projects are rather diffuse. There is not a single outcome that gets all the effort. In this, the level of engagement of participants is less and focus is much more scattered than in startups. A really hungry, go-getter mood is mostly absent. I am a believer in core competence. Well, most people will agree that core competence is nice. But the projects I have seen do not drive for it hard enough.

It is hard to say exactly what kinds of incentives could be offered to encourage truly exceptional work. The American startup scene does offer high rewards and something of this could be transplanted into the EC project world. I would not know exactly what form this could take, though.


          Introducing the OpenLink Virtuoso Benchmarks AMI on Amazon EC2   

The OpenLink Virtuoso Benchmarks AMI is an Amazon EC2 machine image with the latest Virtuoso open source technology preconfigured to run —

  • TPC-H , the classic of SQL data warehousing

  • LDBC SNB, the new Social Network Benchmark from the Linked Data Benchmark Council

  • LDBC SPB, the RDF/SPARQL Semantic Publishing Benchmark from LDBC

This package is ideal for technology evaluators and developers interested in getting the most performance out of Virtuoso. This is also an all-in-one solution to any questions about reproducing claimed benchmark results. All necessary tools for building and running are included; thus any developer can use this model installation as a starting point. The benchmark drivers are preconfigured with appropriate settings, and benchmark qualification tests can be run with a single command.

The Benchmarks AMI includes a precompiled, preconfigured checkout of the v7fasttrack github repository, checkouts of the github repositories of the benchmarks, and a number of running directories with all configuration files preset and optimized. The image is intended to be instantiated on a R3.8xlarge Amazon instance with 244G RAM, dual Xeon E5-2670 v2, and 600G SSD.

Benchmark datasets and preloaded database files can be downloaded from S3 when large, and generated as needed on the instance when small. As an alternative, the instance is also set up to do all phases of data generation and database bulk load.

The following benchmark setups are included:

  • TPC-H 100G
  • TPC-H 300G
  • LDBC SNB Validation
  • LDBC SNB Interactive 100G
  • LDBC SNB Interactive 300G (SF3)
  • LDBC SPB Validation
  • LDBC SPB Basic 256 Mtriples (SF5)
  • LDBC SPB Basic 1 Gtriple

The AMI will be expanded as new benchmarks are introduced, for example, the LDBC Social Network Business Intelligence or Graph Analytics.

To get started:

  1. Instantiate machine image ami-eb789280 (AMI ID is subject to change; you should be able to find the latest by searching for "OpenLink Virtuoso Benchmarks" in "Community AMIs"; this one is short-named virtuoso-bench-6) with a R3.8xlarge instance.

  2. Connect via ssh.

  3. See the README (also found in the ec2-user's home directory) for full instructions on getting up and running.


          SNB Interactive, Part 3: Choke Points and Initial Run on Virtuoso   

In this post we will look at running the LDBC SNB on Virtuoso.

First, let's recap what the benchmark is about:

  1. fairly frequent short updates, with no update contention worth mentioning
  2. short random lookups
  3. medium complex queries centered around a person's social environment

The updates exist so as to invalidate strategies that rely too heavily on precomputation. The short lookups exist for the sake of realism; after all, an online social application does lookups for the most part. The medium complex queries are to challenge the DBMS.

The DBMS challenges have to do firstly with query optimization, and secondly with execution with a lot of non-local random access patterns. Query optimization is not a requirement, per se, since imperative implementations are allowed, but we will see that these are no more free of the laws of nature than the declarative ones.

The workload is arbitrarily parallel, so intra-query parallelization is not particularly useful, if also not harmful. There are latency constraints on operations which strongly encourage implementations to stay within a predictable time envelope regardless of specific query parameters. The parameters are a combination of person and date range, and sometimes tags or countries. The hardest queries have the potential to access all content created by people within 2 steps of a central person, so possibly thousands of people, times 2000 posts per person, times up to 4 tags per post. We are talking in the millions of key lookups, aiming for sub-second single-threaded execution.

The test system is the same as used in the TPC-H series: dual Xeon E5-2630, 2x6 cores x 2 threads, 2.3GHz, 192 GB RAM. The software is the feature/analytics branch of v7fasttrack, available from www.github.com.

The dataset is the SNB 300G set, with:

1,136,127 persons
125,249,604 knows edges
847,886,644 posts , including replies
1,145,893,841 tags of posts or replies
1,140,226,235 likes of posts or replies

As an initial step, we run the benchmark as fast as it will go. We use 32 threads on the driver side for 24 hardware threads.

Below are the numerical quantities for a 400K operation run after 150K operations worth of warmup.

Duration: 10:41.251
Throughput: 623.71 (op/s)

The statistics that matter are detailed below, with operations ranked in order of descending client-side wait-time. All times are in milliseconds.

At this point we have in-depth knowledge of the choke points the benchmark stresses, and we can give a first assessment of whether the design meets its objectives for setting an agenda for the coming years of graph database development.

The implementation is well optimized in general but still has maybe 30% room for improvement. We note that this is based on a compressed column store. One could think that alternative data representations, like in-memory graphs of structs and pointers between them, are better for the task. This is not necessarily so; at the least, a compressed column store is much more space efficient. Space efficiency is the root of cost efficiency, since as soon as the working set is not in memory, a random access workload is badly hit.

The set of choke points (technical challenges) actually revealed by the benchmark is so far as follows:

  • Cardinality estimation under heavy data skew — Many queries take a tag or a country as a parameter. The cardinalities associated with tags vary from 29M posts for the most common to 1 for the least common. Q6 has a common tag (in top few hundred) half the time and a random, most often very infrequent, one the rest of the time. A declarative implementation must recognize the cardinality implications from the literal and plan accordingly. An imperative one would have to count. Missing this makes Q6 take about 40% of the time instead of 4.1% when adapting.

  • Covering indices — Being able to make multi-column indices that duplicate some columns from the table often saves an entire table lookup. For example, an index on post by author can also contain the post's creation date.

  • Multi-hop graph traversal — Most queries access a two-hop environment starting at a person. Two queries look for shortest paths of unbounded length. For the two-hop case, it makes almost no difference whether this is done as a union or a special graph traversal operator. For shortest paths, this simply must be built into the engine; doing this client-side incurs prohibitive overheads. A bidirectional shortest path operation is a requirement for the benchmark.

  • Top K Most queries returning posts order results by descending date. Once there are at least k results, anything older than the kth can be dropped, adding a date selection as early as possible in the query. This interacts with vectored execution, so that starting with a short vector size more rapidly produces an initial top k.

  • Late projection — Many queries access several columns and touch millions of rows but only return a few. The columns that are not used in sorting or selection can be retrieved only for the rows that are actually returned. This is especially useful with a column store, as this removes many large columns (e.g., text of a post) from the working set.

  • Materialization — Q14 accesses an expensive-to-compute edge weight, the number of post-reply pairs between two people. Keeping this precomputed drops Q14 from the top place. Other materialization would be possible, for example Q2 (top 20 posts by friends), but since Q2 is just 1% of the load, there is no need. One could of course argue that this should be 20x more frequent, in which case there could be a point to this.

  • Concurrency control — Read-write contention is rare, as updates are randomly spread over the database. However, some pages get read very frequently, e.g., some middle level index pages in the post table. Keeping a count of reading threads requires a mutex, and there is significant contention on this. Since the hot set can be one page, adding more mutexes does not always help. However, hash partitioning the index into many independent trees (as in the case of a cluster) helps for this. There is also contention on a mutex for assigning threads to client requests, as there are large numbers of short operations.

In subsequent posts, we will look at specific queries, what they in fact do, and what their theoretical performance limits would be. In this way we will have a precise understanding of which way SNB can steer the graph DB community.

          Computer Degree Programs for Rewarding IT Careers   
Technology has invaded almost every aspect of our lives - from businesses which depends on it to run their processes to education which uses it generously for finding new ways of imparting knowledge as well as increasing its reach.

Those who want to enter into the exciting, ever-changing world and work closely with technology should consider a career in IT. There are different types of computer-related degrees and programs which can train you in a specific area of Information Technology. Here's a quick look at some of the popular computer degree programs that you can consider to start your career in IT.

Bachelor of Computer Science: This is one of the sought after computer degrees and an apparent choice for many individuals passionate about computers. But before you jump into it, you need to consider if you have the aptitude for this program. A BS in Computer Science requires above average mathematical and analytical skills. As part of your program, you will be learning complex concepts ranging from algorithms and discreet mathematics to programming languages and networking principles. You can choose from a variety of exciting career options like software engineering, network architecture, database management, etc.

A Bachelor of Computer Science degree typically takes about four years to complete, but some colleges also offer it on a fast-track schedule. You can earn this degree on-campus or enroll for online degree at an accredited institution.

Computer Engineering: This is an engineering degree that combines elements of both computer science and electrical engineering. This computer degree program is suited for individuals who want to work on the hardware side of computers. Computer hardware engineers are responsible for designing, developing, testing, installing, and maintaining computer hardware. As a result, a computer engineering degree imparts training in electronic engineering, software design and hardware-software integration. The types of courses it covers include computer architecture and organization, digital electronics, circuit analysis, embedded systems, etc. A candidate's science and math skills need to be strong for this degree as well.

Computer Programming: This computer degree is the most pertinent choice for individuals who are singularly focused on programming. A lot of aspiring programmers gravitate towards this program because it combines the study of programming languages with courses on databases, networks, and Internet applications. This type of degree is available at the Associate's, Bachelor's as well as at the Master's level. An Associate's degree in Computer Programming is the preferred choice for students looking for a quick entry into workforce as it can be earned in two years or less.

An Associate's of Science in Computer Programming degree qualifies graduates for entry-level programming jobs. Programmers or developers, as they are sometimes referred to, are required to convert a software design into a logical series of instructions called code that will make a computer perform a specific task. In addition to writing new programs, programmers also update, repair, and modify existing programs.

Computer Technology and Networking: This is another computer degree program that has captured the interest of many students aspiring to become a computer technician. As a computer technician or a support specialist, you help people to use their computers. You install software and tools on machines, fix problems when they arise, and are responsible for maintaining system upkeep. A Computer Technology and Networking degree also trains graduates for the job of a network administrator who designs, installs and supports computer systems in an organization. However, it's possible that you may have to work as a support specialist before you're offered the role of a network or systems administrator.

This is typically an Associate's program and can be completed in two years' time or even less on a flexible schedule from some colleges. Graduates of this program are encouraged to complete additional professional certifications to expand their knowledge and boost their job prospects.

Computer Information Systems: This computer program is also available at the Associate's, Bachelor's and Master's level. Depending on the type of degree you earn, you will be responsible for designing, building, and implementing technology in an organization in order to drive its business forward.

A graduate degree in the field is more focused on the management of information systems in a company. A Master's degree will qualify you for the role of an information systems manager, who plans and directs all IT-related activities in his or her firm. An Associate's degree can help graduates obtain entry-level positions, while more responsible and superior roles are reserved for candidates who have a Bachelor's Degree in CIS.
          Most Important Computer Security Programs   
The web can be full of hazards these days as hackers and malware developers strive to get important information such as credit card information, user IDs and passwords to paid subscription websites, social networking sites, e-mail accounts, and other personal data. Other people simply want to wreck havoc on a multitude of computers connected to the Internet for entertainment purposes. Fortunately, there are a number of computer security programs that you should install immediately so that you can prepare for the threats.

Microsoft Security Essentials

Microsoft Security Essentials is Microsoft's first attempt to combat viruses floating around the net. It is presented to be extremely easy for people to setup and runs in the background without eating up too many resources, making it an ideal solution even for older computers that do not have much RAM. The best thing about this software is that it is free for all licensed Windows XP users and above. Virus definitions update every few days so it should keep your system secure enough especially when combined with the Windows Firewall for blocking attacks and the Windows Defender for combating spyware.

Secunia PSI

Unlike other security applications, Secunia PSI doesn't tackle or detect any threats that are within the system or on the net. In fact, it doesn't attempt to make any modifications of the computer itself. Instead, Secunia PSI scans all of the applications that are installed in the system and checks for any vulnerabilities. Some programs where hackers take advantage of vulnerabilities include many of the Adobe software particularly Adobe Reader and Adobe Flash. Other third-party browsers are checked for vulnerabilities as well. If any vulnerabilities are detected, the information regarding the vulnerability is shown. In addition, a link to the latest version of the application that patches this vulnerability is supplied if provided by the developer, making it easy for people to keep their most important programs up to date.

CCleaner

At first glance, CCleaner is more of a system maintenance tool rather than a security tool since it specializes in cleaning out all of the junk files in the computer such as the Internet cache of the different browsers and other temporary files. The security aspect of the program can be seen once you start using it to clean up any private tracks that are left behind so that other users won't be able to see. This includes recently open files, cookies, Internet browsing histories, and other links. It can also be used by more experienced users to check what programs will run on startup. If any suspicious programs are listed, you can securely remove those entries to disable the malware's functionality. It also has a registry scanner that can solve problems and improve performance as well.

All of the three programs mentioned above are freeware and should be installed immediately because they do not cause much of an impact in system performance and do not come bundled with any spyware. However, you can improve your security even more by substituting your free antivirus scanner with a commercial product that can do a better job in removing and cleaning malware as well as blocking firewall attacks. Good programs include ESET NOD32 and Smart Security, Kaspersky Internet Security, and other popular commercial tools.
          Will Computer Grammar Programs Improve Our Writing Performance?   
Computer grammar programs - can they truly improve our English writing skills? English writing is one of the most important forms of communication today, it is necessary to maintain it correct and professional. Learn more about new ideas that will easily enable you to improve your daily writing assignments.

Computer grammar programs provide advanced grammar and proofreading capabilities that aren't available with our conventional word processors. Analyzing text for correct grammar is a great challenge for software developers; it requires a massive database as well as smart analyzing algorithms. In most cases these solutions enables us to do the following: text editing, grammatical check, correct spelling, and proper punctuation.

By using this automatic proofreading technology we gain the following:

- Helping with critical writing assignments such as job and patent applications.
- Avoiding common writing mistakes we tend to repeat in our daily writing assignments.
- Helping us to avoid embarrassing grammar mistakes.

If we examine it closer we would probably find additional benefits that were not added into this quick list, as this technology keeps improving, bringing us fresh improvements and ideas that help us with our grammar writing and proofreading skills.

Computer grammar programs help us catch common writing errors as we proofread our writing assignments. No Natural Language Processing technology can get that perfect, but it can definitely help us cover most of our common writing errors. Although it brings many challenges to software developers, we can expect this technology to further develop itself, simply because writing is among the most significant tools that helps us with many of our day-to-day assignments, whether at home, at school, or in the office.

with apologies to William Blake

In design phase learn, in development teach, in between projects enjoy.
Drive your compiler over the bones of the legacy app.
A fool sees not the same dependencies that the wise man sees.
Eternity is in love with the productions of time.
The hours of folly are measured by the clock, but of wisdom no clock can measure.
A former colleague revenges not injuries.
The most sublime act is to set another before you.
Shame is pride's cloak.
The developer condemns the context, not himself.
Your exclusive class is the doom of my inclusive library,
What is now proved was once only imagined.
The UML contains; the APIs overflow.
Always be ready to speak your mind, and a base dev will avoid you.
The eagle never lost so much time as when he suffered to learn from the crow.
He who has suffered you to impose your design upon him, knows you.
The tigers of wrath are wiser than the horses of instruction.
Expect poison from the standing codebase.
You never know what is enough until you know what is more than enough.
The weak in courage is strong in cunning.
If others had not been foolish, we would be so.
As the dev chooses the fairest platform to lay his code, the business lays its curse on the fairest joys.
To create a little UI is the labour of ages.
The best wine is the oldest. The best water is the newest.
Prayers code not! Praises do not pass QA.
Side with the mediocore professional ahead of the gifted amateur.
As the air to a bird or the sea to a fish, so is contempt to the contemptible.
Improvement makes straight codepaths, but the crooked paths without improvement are paths of genius.
Sooner murder a project in its planning than nurse unacted designs.
Truth can never be told so as to be understood, and not believed.

And one more:

My Pretty Code Tree
A project was offered to me,
Such a project as May never bore,
But I said 'I've a pretty code tree,'
And I passed the sweet project o'er.

Then I went to my pretty code tree,
I wrote her new features by night,
But the TL turned away with jealousy
And her bugs were my only delight.


 


          Design.Blues   

Originally posted on: http://geekswithblogs.net/jasonfranks/archive/2008/05/12/design.blues.aspx


DESIGN.BLUES
As regular readers have no doubt noticed, my overriding interest is design. While it's true that many success stories in the volatile world of IT have been due to luck or good timing, that's not a sustainable model on which to base a line of products or a business. Design discipline, I contend, is the primary difference between continuing success or ultimate failure in the software industry.

Most places I've worked design has been a problem of one kind or another. Usually, in small companies, there isn't any design of if there is, it's been abandoned. Even at the bigger companies this can be a problem: I worked for a software giant for a while and the site I worked at was utterly unproductive because my management was too frightened to authorize any kind of design... so they kept us occupied with busywork until head office shut us down completely. Then again, I worked at a tiny company where the design was held in such high regard that it prevented us from ever shipping any product: the architect was so intent on achieving the perfect design that he changed it on a monthly basis.

Right now, design is the main part of my job. I've designed software before, but usually it's been covertly, in the face of management who though design was 'too expensive' or that the direction they themselves provided (in one case, an Excel spreadsheet)  was more than sufficient. My first big project in this capacity kicks into gear next week and I thought this would be a good opportunity to assess my position on the subject.

Resistance is Futile
At school, we're all taught that design and documentation is of key importance, that planning a project properly is vital to its success. Why, then, are we so loathe to engage in the practice?

Well, firstly, because authoring a design means taking personal responsibility. If the design fails than it's easy to point a finger at the designer--he designed it, it's his fault. This approach is, frankly, not good enough. We are engineers, designing is what engineers do. Any project is much more likely to succeed, in the long run, if it has a design than if it's assembled ad hoc by the a dozen different members, none of them working to a certain direction. Yes, sometimes the design fails... but it's much easier to fix it if there was a design to start with. If the project is organized it can be refactored; if it's not it must be rewritten.

The second problem is that, well, design isn't coding--it involves writing words and drawing UML pictures. Developers code, right? Writers write, artists draw pictures, coders code. If we're not coding we're not working, right?

Wrong.

Writers and artists design their works just as software engineers do. Books, screenplays and essays have structure and shape; and so do paintings, photographs and comicbooks.

Design OD
Of course, it's entirely possible to take it all too far. Projects can overdose on design procedure.

I have a friend who is contracting to a giant IT business on a giant project, and his life consists mainly of attending seminars and workshops and coaching an army of project managers, while his own work gets further and further behind. Instead of doing his job--designing and building a system--he is being forced to appease a management hierarchy who are in turn trying to cover their own arses by enforcing a ridiculously complex procedure at the expense of any type of productivity whatsoever.

Designwork is just as productive as coding.  Arse-covering is not.

Down and Dirty Documentation
I work at a much smaller company--somewhere between 50 and 100 employees. In my capacity as design-monkey, I have produced a slew of documents and UML diagrams showing how I want the system to work... but not anything close to what my friend at the big boys is dealing with. I write short, highly targeted documents, addressing a specific problem or audience (high level design & integration is a specific problem, so is the behaviour of a complex algorithm). I tailor the format of the documents to the audience and the goal of the document.

People say that picture is worth a thousand words, but you simply cannot document a software system only with pictures. Studies show that a combining written words with a sequence of static pictures is the most effective way to communicate--comicbooks are a great way to teach skills or procedures.  You can forge a synergy  between the images and the works that is much easier to absorb than a slab of text or a hundred class diagrams. As a comicbook guy as well as a software engineer, this is something I've taken to heart.

I try to keep my design documents tight and to the point. I don't waffle on implementation detail; I don't show every single object or class or sequence, I just enough so that the team knows how the system needs to fit together without having every single detail dictated to them. They're smart guys, not children, they don't need to be spoonfed. Besides which, I know if I write too much the team just won't read it, even if I put GAME OF THRONES on the spine. There is a point where design ends and code begins, and I believe that finding it is the key to a presenting a successful design.

Once I'm happy with the design, I start to prototype it in code. Sometimes you can get a better insight into how things work from the inside and, as the architect of the system, I feel that it's my responsibility to assess the design from all sides. I need be able to prove that my pie-in-the-sky comicbook stories work as actual code if I expect the team to buy into it. I work remotely (29 hours is a pretty long commute to the office) but I will be actively coding with the team as the project proceeds--an architect in an ivory tower is no use to anyone.

OK GO
Once the system is designed it is up to the team to ensure that they stick to the design as best they can on the way to a release. It's never going to be a perfect match--there will be errors in the design and in the code-- but the closer we stick to the design the easier it is to control the schedule and to maintain the code after release. Unless the design is severely flawed there should be no stopping to reassess in the middle of the project.

The docs are pretty much done, the prototype works; next week I will present everything to the team and the build-out will begin. Let's go.

          Decoration   

Originally posted on: http://geekswithblogs.net/jasonfranks/archive/2007/10/07/engineering-vs-decoration.aspx


Been involved in a discussion about what 'elegant code' means lately. I'll try not to get too C++-specific, but that's what I spend most of my days working in and I'm sure that will show.

Elegant solutions are something that all developers claim to aspire to, but what does that mean, exactly? Code that will impress? Code that uses Design Patterns? Buzzword-compliant code that's built on the latest hot gimmick? While I'm a long way from being a Grumpy Old Programmer, I've been a down-n-dirty C++ for long enough to know better than that.

We all know what isn't elegant. Big fat unstructured functions, global data, copy-and-pasted code, logic that's been encapsulated in the wrong places, if it's been encapsulated at all.  Nested switch statements, gotos, do{ } while(false) constructs, misuse of exceptions. Almost any use of the preprocessor to write actual code.

Many of us make claims that small pieces of code are elegant, but I've seldom heard anybody describe a completed system as elegant. The bigger the project, the less elegant it becomes. "Elegance" becomes a series of flourishes or signature tricks confined to small functions or features, while the rest of the system is hacked and patched together. I put it to you, lads and lassies, that this is an engineering failure. The design of the system AS A WHOLE should  have priority. The big picture should be consistent and definitive; if some of the more granular parts are less than perfect, that's okay.  They can be fixed. More often than not, though, I see crumbling systems bejeweled with tiny intricate classes that do very little besides add to the dead weight.

Let's face it, we software engineers have a definite tendency to overengineer. We all like a challenge, and, when confronted with a mundane task, there's always the temptation to get fancy, if for no other reason than to stay awake. So we write buckets of unnecessary code-- code which is far to intricate to reuse, let alone maintain--and, when, asked to justify its existence, we claim that it was 'elegant solution'.

I'm sorry to tell you. but it's not.

Elegant code is simple, easy to read, and concise. Elegance implies that you will write less code, not more.

The best engineer is the one whose code is the shortest, the clearest, and the easiest to maintain.

If your class library requires a user to implement a suite of specialized templates,  and multiple inheritance across numerous hierarchies, and a thousand functors to hold this all together, and in the end all it does is raise a messagebox? It's not elegant. If I can't work out how a simple for loop runs without having to open a dozen other code modules, the code is too granular.

Make no mistake, I'm all for investing in code infrastructure that can be leveraged to save time and effort in the future--code that will be highly reusable and that will save us from repetitive and dangerous copy-and-paste-search-and-replace coding. Infrastructure that will allow engineers to write less code as they build out the system. I'm a huge advocate of design, but I'm also an advocate of not sweating the small stuff.

Over-engineering usually follows in the decadent phase of a project that was under-engineered to begin with, and it's completely counterproductive. You want to prove you're a real engineer? Next time you want to build something frilly and decorative--you know it when it happens--go instead to the bits of the project you don't like to look at. The old modules that your much-maligned predecessor wrote, in between puffs on the crack pipe. The decaying structures where the real work of the system happens--or should happen. Get in there and work out how to fix it. Find a path that will allow you to fix the fundamentals of the system without hurting the build out of new features. Work out how much time and code it will save and sell it to your management team. I guarantee you'll get more satisfaction from deleting a thousand lines of crap code and replacing them with one than you will from checking in a thousand lines of new code that does bugger all, but does it in a really pretty and buzzword-friendly way.

Be an engineer, not an decorator.

          Dev.Culture   

Originally posted on: http://geekswithblogs.net/jasonfranks/archive/2007/08/15/dev.culture.aspx

Further musing of the Mysteries of the Vanishing Devs.

As discussed in my earlier post, there's a shortage of developers. Big companies are complaining that it's hurting their bottom line, but developer salaries do not reflect this. Small wonder that the talent pool continues to shrink. But that's just the first part of the mystery:

Seems like there are still a lot of development jobs are for small companies, and I'm curious as to how they can compete in what should be a a much tighter market.

In my career, I have mostly worked for smaller businesses: 15 people, 30 people, 60, 120. I prefer it; I worked for one of the big boys for a while and it was the worst experience of my career. Office politics has an inverse relationship to development work, and the bigger the company, the bigger the politics... the smaller the amount of actual development. I'm a developer, not a politician.

Anyway. Let me posit this as a formal argument again, because I'm a formal sorta dude:

Premise 1:There are a limited number of developers available
Premise 2: Big companies are hurting for developers.
Premise 3: Big companies have more to lose than small companies
Premise 4: Big companies have more to spend than small companies.
Conclusion: Big companies should have bought up all the developers, and there should be none left for the smaller guys.

But this conclusion doesn't hold. But why? If it's really that costly, why are there so many small shops in business? How can they even begin to afford it? I think there are several factors in play.

Firstly, I don't think the big companies, for all their complaining, truly understand the value of development. This is particularly true of non-tech businesses like banks and insurance companies, who, like it or not, are among the biggest customers for large scale development. Dev is expensive, it takes a long time, projects are late, projects fail. Nobody wants to invest in staffing or training, they want everything quick and cheap.  Money men don't appreciate what's involved in planning a project for success, and they're just going to continue half-assing it until somebody gets upset, lays off the R&D department, adds a zero to the budget and outsources everything. They don't know any better, that's how they were trained and that's how software services are sold to them by those of us who should know better.

This attitude is reciprocated: a lot of developers--including me--don't like working for those guys. We don't like filling out TPS reports or sitting in meetings. We like to report to other engineers, not to middle-management MBA types.

Another factor, I believe, is that there's an entrepreneurial spirit to software that I think other engineering disciplines lack. We want to build new things, we want to make an impact... and we don't _need_ tens of millions of dollars to accomplish anything. In software, we can built anything we imagine from nothing but keywords and logic. Garage development continues to be the leading edge of software--corporate money is required to polish and commercialize those products, but corporate structures are often antithetical to breaking new technology in a timely fashion. That's why there's this continual cycle of big companies  acquiring smaller ones.

The story of the hero developer is never about a dude who joined a big company and worked his way up from the mailroom; it's about the guy who founded a company in his basement, the visionary who built something that one of the big boys him or her paid millions for because their own internal, hidebound, reactionary, shareholder-accountable  structures didn't think of it or failed to deliver it.

At the end of the day, I think the reason that the market is as loose and nonsensical as it is rooted in developer culture. We are iconoclasts, loners, wizards. Geeks. Idealistic as it sounds, I believe that, as a community, we are not demanding the money we could because the work itself is our reward. We do it for the doing of it.

          Bad.Dev: Seven.Deadly.Sins   

Originally posted on: http://geekswithblogs.net/jasonfranks/archive/2007/07/23/bad.dev-seven.deadly.sins.aspx



Hell is other people, and Dev.Hell is no exception.

While I feel secure in saying that most of the unnecessary strife faced by development comes from immature practices and corporate short-sightedness, there are plenty of problems that come from those of us who live down in the code; demons or damned souls both.

Let's start with what developers are not:

Developers are not lazy. Devs love technology, they love code, they love working... because working is playing. When devs become discontent it is not the fault of their tools or their work; its almost always the fault of the environment in which they are toiling... and the personalities they are toiling amongst.

While there is some truth to stereotypes, I think the the iconic sniggering, antisocial nerd is a bit of a myth. There are some, it's true, but the vast minority, and becoming smaller with every new generation of developers (ok, it seems like each successive generation since mine has been smaller than the last, but you take my point). Yes, there are some crazies, but by and large the people I work with are well adjusted, socialized, smart and quite able to function in normal society. Ethnically diverse and very heavily male skewed (a topic for another blog), but basically normal.

The problem is, 'normal' doesn't mean very much. Assholes, lickspittles, heroes and scapegoats are part of the 'normal' spectrum of personality types. The problem is that managing development is difficult enough without having to manage typical human failings.

Herewith, I present the Seven.Deadly.Sins

1. SLOTH
The causes of 90% of development woe are well known. They teach us how to avoid them in every Comp. Sci course, everywhere in the world. There are thousands of books elucidating them with statistics and strategies.... but they persist to this day.

Engineers know that software needs to be designed and documented and tested. They may see themselves as coders, but coding by itself is a vain effort. We need to work smart, not hard: throwing massive amounts of code at a problem until it's been solved is a sucker's game. That is the difference between programming and engineering.

Programming's just logic and syntax. Any old script kiddie can program.

It's just laziness that our industry does not learn from its mistakes. We all know this and it's time we damn well grew up and started acting like it. But why don't we?

Many reasons, I think. Sometimes it comes from management who don't like to see developers do anything other than write code. Some developers don't like drawing pictures. Some don't like sitting in meetings and negotiating a design amongst peers. Sometimes leadership of a team is weak and the architect or lead just doesn't have the authority to impose a design on recalcitrant developers. Some developers are trying to horde knowledge --'job security code'.

Some guys are afraid they'll get the design wrong, and therefore avoid doing it: if you can draw a picture of a system, you can draw a picture of why the system is wrong. If there are no documents then you can't possibly point to a source of failure, right? This is spineless and stupid. It's a hundred times easier to reengineer a flawed design than it is to try to debug unstructured code. Expect designs to evolve, but it's important to pick a design and stick with it until that design has been proven incorrect-- otherwise you end up with neverending refactors that don't advance the system. That's when rewriting from scratch becomes attractive to developers... but never to management.

Catch phrase: "Design document? Well, I just used Microsoft's Document/View model."

2. WRATH
We've all been there. Too many people get involved but nobody has authority. There are committees, layers of management, pictures, minutes, theories, negotiations. Inaccurate analogies or metaphors  are postulated and thrown out in endless succession ("It's like an ant hill", "it's a desktop with a steering wheel", "It's an 8th dimensional quantum construct.") Eventually somebody decides that it's too hard or too expensive. Or a senior manager decides (correctly) that enough time has been wasted, bans all further design meetings and mandates that implementation begin immediately, and by the way, they've cut the schedule and there are no QA resources available.

Then individual developers get angry and decide they're going to design the hell out of it anyway.... only without supervision or planning. Frustrated developers try to compensate for bigger, system-wide design problems by overdesigning less important and reusable parts of the code. The indexing, caching, paging, owner-draw combo box that's been templatized so that it can mimic the entire enterprise architecture on box, only its own metadata as well as MFC type information? The one where it takes five hundred lines of code and fifteen specialized functors  to insert an item? That's overdesign. 

I wrote a suite of classes once--under instruction from the team lead--that had no functional purpose, they were just there to prevent other developers from using a different suite of classes incorrectly. That's right: he mandated that we were to use this unnecessary extra turd-class that I was to write, rather than learning to program the system correctly. I remember the exchange vividly. "Must I really?" I asked. "Yes, absolutely,"  came the reply. "Oh." "Any questions?" "Uh, yeah. Can I use templates?" "Of course." So I went and added a wholly unnecessary template parameter. I guess I have a weird sense of humor.

Catch phrase: "Every idiom used in that function is a well known design pattern!"

3. PRIDE
You know this guy. He knows he's the best there ever was and he has the code to prove it. Yeah? You think you can read my code? You're not smart enough to understand my code. I'm so smart that nobody else can follow my reasoning.

This is often the guy who's read Design Patterns cover to cover, and it shows... because he uses all of them. All the time. All at once. That's not good coding practice, that's diarrhoea.

These are often the coders that managers and non-team-members look at with awe. "He's a genius," they whisper. "I know he's hard to get along with, but he is such an amazing coder."

Wrong on all counts.

4. GLUTTONY
There are developers out there who want a bit of everything. They want to use every design pattern, every language, every tool and 3rd party control without need or discipline.  They have to play with every toy and they can find some reason to justify it... but the ultimate reason is that they want to put it on their resume.

Code reuse is great, but you can't have your cake and eat it, too: you can't use everything third party. Every integration point is a weak point, every new language or library has a learning curve for current or future developers.

Catch Phrase: "We need to redo this with a more modern language."

5. GREED
More commonly a management failing than one that occurs on the floor, but there is still plenty of this going around. Developers who are greedy for undeserved credit. Developers who want their irrelevant hobby-horse project to have the limelight... or worse, devs who expect everybody to drop what they're doing and help out with their irrelevant side projects.

Catch phrase: "If you'd read the whitepaper I'm writing you would understand."

6. LUST
We all want recognition, we all want success. We all want to be able to say "I wrote that, I worked for those guys, I DID THAT." Well, guess what? You have to pick your goals. I once had a small project that I wanted to build out into a big fat distributed enterprise app--just to prove that I could do it. Solo. Boy, was I angry when I was told that the current product was fine for the scale of deployments our customers used and that the company needed me to work on a different product.

I lost a consulting gig for doing this same thing, too: somebody asked me to look at his system and tell him what it would take to get it to market. He wanted to hear how quickly I could take over and finish the code he had, and instead I talked up plans that were much bigger than his ambitions or his budget. Boo hoo hoo.

Catch phrase: "Yes, but with only two more years and ten million additional dollars, you could have so much more!"

7. ENVY
This a one can be pretty subtle among developers. Everyone wants to think they're the best, but the truth is that there's always something new to learn. I've worked with a guy who, when praised, replied to me "I know you think everything I write is bullshit."

I worked with another guy who insisted that his code was perfect and would deny that any bugs or misbehaviour in the apoplication could possibly be his fault without even looking at the problem. In fact, he would go so far as to walk around the office blaming other developers for his mistakes without taking even a moment to investigate the issues. But there's no point denying culpability unless you have the means to hack the version control repository...

When confronted with evidence his code wouldn't work properly, this developer replied "You can't use it like that, it's been specially optimized." Which is fine, but the code was documented as being a generic solution, the 'special optimizations' failed to yield any benefit to performance or code reuse, and the contexts in which it could be safely used were NOT documented (because in fact there were none). This developer also went so far as 'specially optimize' some of my library code so that it no longer worked in the context I had written it for. When shown code that did not suffer the deficiencies of his specially optimized code, he told me that it was badly designed.

Catch Phrase: "This code is perfect."

There you have it. All of the most common developer failings that I have encountered, wrapped up in a cliched--but well understood--metaphor. I'll leave you with this:

Good developers learn from each other. The ask questions. They accept their mistakes. They provide evidence to back up their claims or refute argument. They do not yell, lie, connive, or boast. They do not present their college grades as evidence that their solution is superior to a competing solution.

Thank you and good night.

          Welcome to Dev.Hell   

Originally posted on: http://geekswithblogs.net/jasonfranks/archive/2007/06/25/welcome-to-dev.hell.aspx


Welcome to Dev.Hell. I'm the Advocate, but you can call me Jason. Other people call me a complaining nerd. It's all good.

For the last 8 years I've been a professional Windows applications developer.

I live in Australia, although I just spent five years working in the USA. I've worked your standard client/server n-tier database apps, I've worked on CAD/engineering applications, I've worked on network security apps, and right now I'm working in the physical security space. I have a couple of side projects that I can't or won't talk about here. I've worked for tiny companies of fifteen souls or less, I've worked for public companies with thousands. I've worked solo and I've worked on teams of five, fifteen and fifty. I've been the junior guy, I've been the behind-the-scenes-emergency-fixer-upper-guy, I've been dev lead and architect. I've mentored younger guys, filtered resumes, and tested developers twice my age in interview situations (which has been both embarassing and educational). I've seen quite a lot of stuff in a relatively short career.

I'm mostly a Visual C++ guy these days, although I do a bit of C#/.NET. 

I am also a writer. I write prose, I write comics, I write articles about comics. If you're interested in that, you're more than welcome to check out my main website. I've decided to shift my blogging about technology matters over here because I'm looking for a more appropriate audience that the comics crowd that read my other blog, and I will indeed be retooling and some of my old postings from there for this blog.

So that's my professional resume. Here's my rationale:

I'm a committed developer. It's what I do; I don't want to be part of the business side of things...  but I live and work in the real world, and business wants to be part of what I do. While I do enjoy getting paid every week, the results usually aren't pretty. I love writing software, but these external forces just make everything so damned difficult. Hence this blog: I want to explore the tension between engineering and business, government, finance, education, and that Klingon-speaking, caffeine-swilling, acne-encrusted beast we lovingly call Development Culture.

I'm not going to get especially technical--there's plenty of venues for that already all across the length and breadth of the internet. I'm sure if anything particularly  interesting or aggravating crops up it'll find it's way here, but that's not really what I want to do on this blog. I want to raise awareness of how the Industry succeeds and fails, where it all seems to be going, and what has to happen befire we can dig our way out of Dev.Hell and ascend to Tech.Paradise.

See you in the funny pages.

          Shopkeepers call auditors for GST help   

Businesses in the city woke up to confusion on Saturday, Day 1 of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) regime.

The telephones of auditors and software developers rang all day, with traders seeking their help to understand a tax system many find bewildering.

Proprietors of shops selling knick-knacks, gifts and hardware are puzzled about the varying slabs for the products on their shelves.

The opticals business is befuddled, too. M A Sharif of Eye Clinic, a spectacles showroom, said, "The rates vary on lenses, sunglasses and glass frames. We paid a tax of 14.5% while buying the products. We now hear the products attract 18% GST."

He said he couldn't pass on the GST to his customers as the products already have MRP labels. "We are waiting for the auditor to guide us," he said.

Abdul Baqi of Steps, a footwear showroom on Commercial Street, was waiting for the computer software to be upgraded with the GST rates.

"We hear GST for our trade is 5%. The major challenge is for the poor cobblers who make and sell their products to us," he said.

Most are illiterate and don't know anything about tax, according to Baqi.

"They will be ruined. Eventually, smaller footwear merchants who buy from such cobblers will also be ruined. Only brand showrooms will remain," said Baqi.

Padmesh Kumar of Just Smile, a gift shop on Commercial Street, said the tax on gift items has gone up from 14.5% to 18%. The tax on greeting cards has more than doubled from 5.5% to 12%.

Electrical appliances and textile shops that get by without handing proper invoices to customers are worried their dealings will now be taxed.

Abdul Hannan of Wow!!, a textile showroom on Commercial Street, said cloth pieces attracted no tax earlier. Under GST, they fall in the 5% slab. The tax on stitched clothes has gone up from 5% to 12%.

"Our margins will shrink as we have to sell old stocks at MRP. We can't shift the tax liability on to our customers," Hannan said.

Balachandra N of Maithili Silk, a sari shop at Chickpet, said silk, exempted from tax since the British era, was now in the 5% slab.

"We used to offer 10% concession on the MRP but after GST we will have to charge the full price to retain our profits. We are waiting for the auditor to clarify," he said.

AC restaurants tax now at 18%
They circulated the bills, officially called invoices, on WhatsApp groups, showing 18% GST being marked as 9% for the state and 9% for the Centre.

Many restaurants not collecting taxes earlier have begun collecting GST.

          Security: Security Updates, Systemd, OutlawCountry, Microsoft Cyberattacks, Microsoft Abuses, and Restrictions   
  • Security updates for Friday
  • USN-3341-1: Systemd vulnerability

    An out-of-bounds write was discovered in systemd-resolved when handling specially crafted DNS responses. A remote attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial of service (daemon crash) or execute arbitrary code.

  • About the OutlawCountry Linux malware

    Isn’t that clear? The attacker is loading a custom kernel module as root in your machine. They don’t use Netfilter to break into your system. The problem is not Netfilter, the problem is your whole machine being under their control.

  • Wikileaks Reveals CIA Malware that Hacks & Spy On Linux Computers
  • OutlawCountry: Project of the CIA Targets Computers Running the Linux Operating System
  • NotPetya developers may have obtained NSA exploits weeks before their public leak [Updated]
  • Exclusive: India presses Microsoft for Windows discount in wake of cyber attacks [iophk: "Canonical ought to jump on this, why are they so quiet?"]

     

    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.  

  • So You Think You Can Spot a Skimmer?

     

    Thanks to the myriad methods thieves have devised to fleece unsuspecting cash machine users over the years, there are now more ways than ever to get ripped off at the ATM. Think you’re good at spotting the various scams? A newly released ATM fraud inspection guide may help you test your knowledge.

  • Attacking the kernel via its command line
  • As A New Wave Of Cyberattacks Rolls Out, Rep. Ted Lieu Asks What The NSA's Going To Do About It

    Leaked NSA exploits have now been the basis for two massive cyberattacks. The first -- Wannacry -- caught hospitals and other critical infrastructure across several nations in the crossfire, using a tool built on the NSA's ETERNALBLUE exploit backbone. The second seems to be targeting Ukraine, causing the same sort of havoc but with a couple of particularly nasty twists.

    This one, called Petya, demanded ransom from victims. Things went from bad to worse when email provider Posteo shut down the attacker's account. Doing so prevented affected users from receiving decryption keys, even if they paid the ransom.

    It soon became apparent it didn't matter what Posteo did, no matter how clueless or ill-advised. There was no retrieving files even if ransoms were paid. Two separate sets of security researchers examined the so-called ransomware and discovered Petya is actually a wiper. Once infected, victims' files are as good as gone. No amount of bitcoin is going to reverse the inevitable. The ransomware notices were only there to draw attention to the infection and away from the malware's true purpose.

  • Microsoft, please stop doing things for our own good

    For over 20 years, Microsoft stomped on its competitors and then defended itself against the resulting antitrust lawsuits. But with desktop Windows waning in importance and its desktop software rivals largely gone, Microsoft seemed to have turned a new leaf. Or had it?

    In the one software sphere left where it still has rivals — antivirus and security software — Microsoft is up to its old anti-competitive tricks. Late last year, Eugene Kaspersky, founder of the eponymous antivirus company, said, “When you upgrade to Windows 10, Microsoft automatically and without any warning deactivates all ‘incompatible’ security software and in its place installs… you guessed it — its own Defender antivirus. But what did it expect when independent developers were given all of one week before the release of the new version of the OS to make their software compatible?”

  • Yet more linux security module craziness ..
  • ThunderBolt Security Levels and Linux desktop

    Recently I got Dell XPS 13 as my new work laptop and I use it with the TB16 dock. This dock doesn’t seem to fully work with Linux, only monitors work. But if you go to BIOS settings and set the Thunderbolt Security level to “No security”. Then suddenly almost everything is working.
