AWS Experience Part 3: Trying Another Instance
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Hi all,

Hmmmm...

I switched on my machine this morning thinking a new day will bring new results. Nope. Same old results. As I mentioned in an earlier blog entry, I created a server instance using Fedora with LAMP, complete with MySQL. Hmmm.. Sound good? Well, it comes with MySQL 4.1. Normally an update would be a straightforward process. Since Fedora 8 doesn't come with an

apt-get
command, I chose to go the
yum
route. I tried
 yum update mysql-server
. No dice. problems. I spent another 30 minutes or so, trying to correct the problem, but to no avail. So I decided to create a whole new server instance with Fedora 8 and no MySQL. I manually installed MySQL on the machine, by doing the following:
  • I download the MySQL sever, cient, and headers and libraries from the MySQL.com (http://mysql.com/).
    wget

Redefining Spam, in the age of Twitter
+0 Vote Up -1Vote Down

For the past few months, I’ve been helping my friend develop and market Philtro .
We’ve gone through various iterations of the elevator pitch for it, and the one that seems to be kinda working, is: “It’s like a spam filter for your Twitter account.”

At SXSW, I got the opportunity to talk to Guy Kawasaki about this tool, and he said “There is no spam on twitter, if you don’t like it, don’t follow them”.

    AWS Experience Part 2: Accessing the Cloud
    Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Hi all,

    Today I'll be write more about my experiences with Amazon Web Services. Before I continue, I'd like to provide some background information.

    I signed up for Amazon Web Services. I used the Fedora LAMP AMI to create a server instance. The main reason for choosing this AMI was its inclusion of MySQL and Apache, a nice little package indeed. I ran into a few problems at first. Because I am based in Europe, I am allowed to use only the EU-West region, and the default in the US-East region. The drop down list is rather small, and i took a couple of unsuccessful instances to figure out that this was the problem. When I say "unsuccessful instances," I mean that the nothing appeared in the browser when I copied the public DNS to the browser's address bar. I attached an EBS volume to the server instance and it was OK.

    Now for more on the command line.

    I spent a lot

    AWS Experience Part 1: Setting up the Tools
    Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Hi all,

    I've just been reassigned (partially) to make sense of using a MySQL database server in the cloud, namely in Amazon Web Services. I'll be blogging about my experiences. Today is part 1.

    After creating the account, I got to work. I signed up for EC2 (Elastic Compute Cloud 2), Simple Storage, and EBS (storage that allows for persistence). I played around with starting an instance, terminating it, etc. Then I got started with the command line tools. This is what I did.

    • I made sure that my JAVA_HOME was set correctly in my mac: I typed
      export JAVA_HOME=/Library/Java/Home/
      in the terminal. Then I typed
      $JAVA_HOME/bin/java -version
      to confirm that the JAVA_HOME was indeed set correctly.
    • Then I made created a .ec2 directory in my home directory. I then added my private key and X.509 certificate to this directory. I also made

    Launching AeroSQL – a MySql web based manager built with ExtJS library

    I’ve developed a MySql manager back in 2000 for MySql 3.23 using Borland Delphi. The software was used internally in a company.

    On the Merits of Voting
    Employee +1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Just before the MySQL User Conference, Dups implemented a small little feature for Planet MySQL: “voting”. We wanted to see what a voting system might mean to you, our PlanetMySQL readers.

    The question is now how to improve the voting mechanism to make it more useful. The goal is for everyone to see what you and your peers think are the best PlanetMySQL entries over a given week.

    Here are some of the options:

    1. Open up voting to everyone regardless of whether they are logged in or not. Currently you can only vote if you are logged in with a MySQL.com account. Let’s face it, a login gives a barrier to entry even as

    TwitterJobSearch, MySQL Job Fair
    +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    I heard about TwitterJobSearch on net@night, and decided to give it a twirl. I typed “mysql” and found 3,092 results in 30 seconds. You can then filter by job title, salary, skill set, job type, and more, as well as sort it by relevance or date.

    Useful? Quite possibly. Would be more useful, if you could filter out Twitter users (like @itcareer, for example). Search that is semantic, instead of just word based. So “mysql in san francisco” will return relevant results for you.

    If you’re looking for a job anytime soon, note that there will also be a Job Fair at the MySQL Conference & Expo 2009, happening April 20-23 2009, are you registered yet? Its a
