Linus on Instantiation and Armadaification
+0 Vote Up -1Vote Down

I feel a sense of pride when I think that I was involved in the development and maintenance of what was probably the first piece of software accepted into Debian which then had and still has direct up-stream support from Microsoft. The world is a better place for having Microsoft in it. The first operating system I ever ran on an 08086-based CPU was MS-DOS 2.x. I remember how thrilled I was when we got to see how my friend’s 80286 system ran BBS software that would cause a modem to dial a local system and display the application as if it were running on a local machine. Totally sweet.

When we were living at 6162 NE Middle in the nine-eight 292, we got an 80386 which ran Doom. Yeah, the original one, not the fancy new one with the double barrel shotgun, but it would probably run that one, too.

The brief outage was due to a scheduled move of the servers to a separate rack and subnet dedicated to our work with the Center for Information Assurance & Cybersecurity (ciac) at the University of Washington Bothell (uwb), and a11y.com

I am currently exercising the new (to us) equipment and hope to winnow the less than awesome equipment over the next quarter. I spent the last six months finding the best in breed of the surplussed DL385 and DL380 chassis we (work) were going to have recycled. The team and I were able to find enough equipment to bring up one of each with eight and six gigs of memory, respectively. These will make excellent hypervisors for provisioning embedded instances of Slackware, Fedora, RHEL, CentOS, Debian, FreeBSD, OpenSolaris, OpenIndiana, FreeDOS, etc.

When I initially configured this xen paravirt environment, I failed to plan for integration with libvirt, so I am

This is the third article in a series providing background information to my talk for the MySQL User's conference, entitled MQL-to-SQL: a JSON-based Query Language for RDBMS Access from AJAX Applications.

In the first installment, I introduced freebase, an open shared database of the world's knowledge and its JSON-based query language, the Metaweb Query Language (MQL, pronounced Mickle). In addition, I discussed

Yesterday, I wrote about how I think this year's MySQL conference will differ from prior editions. I also wrote that I will attend and that I will be speaking on MQL-to-SQL.

I promised I would explain a little bit more background about my talk, so here's the first installment.

Abstract: MQL is a JSON-based database query language that has some very interesting features as compared to SQL, especially for modern (

Speaking at the MySQL conference 2011
+6 Vote Up -0Vote Down
I just received a confirmation that my presentation proposal for the MySQL user conference 2011 was accepted! The title for my proposal is MQL-to-SQL: a JSON-based Query Language for RDBMS Access from AJAX Applications, and it covers pretty much everything implied by the title.

As always, the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Santa Clara, California serves as the venue. The conference will be held from April 11-14. Except for the venue and period, I think this year's conference will bear few similarities to previous editions. Let me try and explain.

This year's theme is "MySQL, the ecosystem and

A comet over PHProjekt 6
+0 Vote Up -1Vote Down
So far PHProjekt 6 (P6, see http://phprojekt.com) is already enhanced with nice AJAX workflows and snappy user-experience. Nevertheless, we discussed a way to provide synchronous communication and direct information within the application.

Everybody knows GoogleMail with its easy to use frontend. Maybe you use it for your daily work. In GoogleMail, there is no need to refresh the page to receive a new mail, Google informs you automatically whenever a new mail is available. But how is this possible? The answer to this question is really simple: The server triggers a signal informing that a new mail is available. This technology is called Comet and describes a way how the server communicates with the client [see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comet_(programming) ].

Spinn3r is growing fast. Time to hire another engineer. Actually, we’re hiring for like four people right now so I’ll probably be blogging more on this topic.

My older post on this subject still applies for requirements.

If you’re a Linux or MySQL geek we’d love to have your help.

Creating an Ajax Application with Script.aculo.us
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Hi all,

Today I'd like to continue a blog series in which I highlight Web application tutorials for NetBeans 6.5. A few changes have been made to tutorials, among which is the featuring of MySQL as the database of choice.

This second entry in the series will cover the tutorial, "Creating an Ajax Application with Script.aculo.us", which is based on a blog entry by Arun Gupta.

This tutorial demonstrates the usage of the Java Persistence APIs to implement server side pagination (recommended for large sets of data) and to get and display the results in a text field featuring Ajax functionality. Ajax is a technology that combines (X)HTML, JavaScript, and CSS with the power of XmlHttpRequest in the creation of

Changing Lanes: Leaving Sun/MySQL
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down
After having worked for two years and one quarter of a year with MySQL AB (now Sun), I have decided to resign and pursue another career.

Before I joined MySQL AB I was working as a database consultant and application developer. I knew that joining MySQL would mean giving that up, but I was happy to do so because I really liked the MySQL product. I was also attracted by the company itself, the flexible working hours, working from home, travelling abroad, and, very important, being one of the few companies that is capable creating FOSS software on a commercial basis.

I have had a splendid time at MySQL AB, and later Sun. I met lots of smart people and travelled to a bunch of places I would probably not've had the chance

TOTD #45: Ajaxifying Java Server Faces using JSF Extensions
Employee +0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

TOTD #42 explained how to create a simple Java Server Faces application using NetBeans 6.1 and deploy on GlassFish. In the process it explained some basic JSF concepts as well. If you remember, it built an application that allows you to create a database of cities/country of your choice. In that application, any city/country combination can be entered twice and no errors are reported.

This blog entry extends TOTD #42 and show the list of cities, that have already been entered, starting with the letters entered in the text box. And instead of refreshing the entire page, it uses JSF Extensions to make an Ajax call to the endpoint and show the list of cities

I attended several events in June of this year including Graphing Social Patterns East, Velocity and Structure 08. At each of these events, I tried to take some notes and posted them to my personal blog. I received a few pings from readers of this blog to point them to a list of these posts. It took some time but here is the list of my notes. In some cases, I have linked directly to the presentation files.

AJAX Tutorial with Prototype
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

Here's the AJAX prototype example that I used in my AJAX presentation today.

I wanted to give an example of a good use of AJAX, and at the same time keep it simple. So I thought a good example would be to build a zip code verifier. As soon as the person enters the zip code it makes a request to the server to see if the zip code is in the database, and returns the city and state.

So the user first sees this:

Once the zip code is entered, and the response received it looks like this:

If the zip code is not found in the db:

Ok, now lets build it...

Checking password strength using md5.rednoize.com and AJAX
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

With some inspiration from Ben Ramsey i created a little demo for using my md5 database during the signup process on a website.

This example demonstrates the use of the MD5 database at http://md5.rednoize.com and AJAX to check password strength during signup on a website. After supplying a username and a password, a md5 hash of the password is generated using Paul Johnston's md5 javascript library.

The hash of the password (not the password itself) is then sent to http://md5.rednoize.com. If the website returns a result for the given password (hence the hash password combination is stored in the md5 database) it
