Hating Americans and Cats
+4 Vote Up -3Vote Down

Most of the time I think of myself as living in a fairly progressive and enlightened world. I'm fotunate that I work with a set of wonderful people, I can travel all over the world and I'm a member of an excellent theatre company. As a result, hatred of things, or at least expressions of hatred are generally just not tolerated in any of the circles in which I run. (With the exception, of course, of things that FAIL, like a particularly bad piece of code - but even then it's less about hatred and more about not liking something that didn't work)

There are two social acceptable exceptions to that rule, though: Americans, and cats.

I was reading a blog post earlier this morning (which I won't link to because that's not the point here) which was a fun post about older people finding new music. As a person who is not getting any younger myself, the blog post was quite enjoyable. Smack in

It's entirely possible, given my propensity to swear and rant and declare things to be Web Scale, that folks might get the idea that I do not like our newer NoSQL bretheren. Quite the contrary - I think almost all of them are exciting and well suited to various tasks. My biggest beef is in thinking that a single technology should be square-pegged into every round-hole anyone can find. This holds true for Drizzle and MySQL as well, by the way. Just because I work on Drizzle does not mean I think Drizzle should be the method of data storage for every blessed thing on the face of the planet - that would be silly!

I bring this up because I had my first instance of thinking that Cassandra might be a good choice for a project someone was showing me yesterday. In this case, the project was collecting data about events, but it as the data was events about real-world interactions, the particular information stored about

CB1 Ubuntu 10.10 Linux Development Setup
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I use a MacBook Pro for my day-to-day operations here at CB1, INC. I’m a huge believer that a development environment should mimic the production environment, so I find myself running a couple virtual machines in VMware Fusion.

The following guide is a reference for myself as well as possibly a helpful resource for setting up your own Linux development environment. Here’s an checklist of the tasks to perform and software to install:

  • Operating System
    • Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit: I use Ubuntu Desktop in dev and Ubuntu Server in production
    • Package updates and upgrades
    • Network configuration (at least 2 static IP addresses)
  • Development Tools
    • C/C++ development environment
    • Autotools
    • Sun Java JDK

Drizzle7 Beta Released
+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I'm happy to announce that today we've released the first beta of Drizzle7! It's been an exciting ride so far and I'm expecting it to be only more exciting moving forward, now that I can actually say things like "yes! please try it!"

Some quick thoughts:

 

  • We're speaking MySQL Protocol over 3306 by default - all of your MySQL connectors should work fine.
  • drizzledump can read from MySQL and write to Drizzle.
  • Replication has changed.
  • Authentication has changed.
  • Options processing has changed.
  • There are tons of plugins.

 

We're actually going to care about breaking things moving forward. 

So... yes! please try it! I'm excited to find out what new things people are going to try to do with it.

 

If you fork it, will they come?

There is much excitement this week (understandably) about the formation of the Document Foundation and the LibreOffice fork of Openoffice.org.

Alan Bell sees correlation with the previous fork of Joomla from Mambo and has illustrated the potential impact that forking a project can have with a Google Trends chart, where Mambo is the blue line, and Joomla is the red line:

A similar chart for Debian (blue) and Ubuntu (red) is also instructive:

Redmine with MariaDB
+1 Vote Up -0Vote Down

I'm in the process of setting up Redmine (version 1.0-stable) on an Ubuntu 8.04 virtual machine. Getting a recent enough gem and rails is less fun than you might imagine, but the big issue I came across was a bug in the database model, which makes MySQL 5.1 (MariaDB 5.1 in my case) barf on installation.

There is a fix, but I am running from a git clone didn't want to download and apply a diff file to that repository. A quick google found what I need: the git cherry-pick command. It allows you to grab a single commit and apply its changes

    How To Set Up WebDAV With MySQL Authentication On Apache2 (Ubuntu 9.10)

    This guide explains how to set up WebDAV with MySQL authentication (using mod_auth_mysql) on Apache2 on an Ubuntu 9.10 server. WebDAV stands for Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning and is a set of extensions to the HTTP protocol that allow users to directly edit files on the Apache server so that they do not need to be downloaded/uploaded via FTP. Of course, WebDAV can also be used to upload and download files.

    Just in case you haven’t noticed, Ubuntu 10.04 “Lucid Lynx” has arrived. I upgraded my personal box over the weekend, and am happy to report that things went pretty flawlessly for me. So I’m now a happy lucid user.

    What’s more important for the ever-growing cluster community is the fact that this LTS release comes with built-in support for the Pacemaker cluster stack — and indeed, it’s the first commercially-supported distribution that comes with support for both the Heartbeat and the Corosync cluster messaging layer. And it’s easy, too!

    When backups fail: A mysql binlog race condition
    +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

    Today I ran into my first MySQL binlog race condition: The initial problem was quite simple: A typical MySQL master->slave setup with heavy load on the master and nearly no load on the slave, which only serves as a hot fallback and job machine, showed differences on the same table on both machines. The differences showed up from time to time: entries that have been deleted from the master were still on the slave.

    After several investigations I started examining the MySQL binlog from the master – a file containing all queries that will be transferred to the slave (and executed there if they don’t match any ignore-db-pattern). I grepped for ids of rows that have not been deleted on the slave as I’s interested if the DELETE statement was

    Well, for Matt Asay, I should start by congratulating you for the new job and nice title! (Also, we learn some intelligence from Matt's blog: apparently Canonical is already close to the size of MySQL AB at the time of the Sun acquisition.)

    Usually we are told to "ignore the trolls" and all that. The blogosphere unfortunately seems to be full of commentators who like to have share their opinion - even while they are entirely clueless. Sometimes, like the comments on Slashdot, it is ok and considered part of the entertainment. Sometimes it is harmless, because nobody reads that blog. And sometimes, it is just unacceptable:

    How To Set Up MySQL Database Replication With SSL Encryption On Ubuntu 9.10

    How To Set Up MySQL Database Replication With SSL Encryption On Ubuntu 9.10

    This tutorial describes how to set up database replication in MySQL using an SSL connection for encryption (to make it impossible for hackers to sniff out passwords and data transferred between the master and slave). MySQL replication allows you to have an exact copy of a database from a master server on another server (slave), and all updates to the database on the master server are immediately replicated to the database on the slave server so that both databases are in sync. This is not a backup policy because an accidentally issued DELETE command will also be carried out on the slave; but replication can help protect against hardware failures though.

    Ubuntu Karmic's Network Manager Issues
    +1 Vote Up -1Vote Down
    Since Ubuntu 8.04 aka Hardy Heron, I've had issues with every new release. As Ubuntu evolves into being a viable desktop OS alternative, its complexity has been growing and with the new and improved looks new challenges arise. This bug in particular has been very difficult to diagnose and I can't imagine anyone without enough Linux experience to overcome it on their own, so I decided to summarize the steps I took to fix it ... and vent my frustration at the end.

    The Symptom

    I came across the issue for the first time while trying Ubuntu's Karmic Netbook remix. After overcoming the typical Broadcom wifi driver, Network Manager would connect, but Firefox would fail to load the web pages 90% of the time. Using ping in the command line worked just fine.
