From email to myTinyTodo

Usually, I receive a lot of emails, and sometimes I read them on my phone and then… I forgot about them.. (shame on me).

On my Linux desktop, I used to use Get Things Gnome for a long time, due to the declining appeal of the project and the end of the extension for Thunderbird, I found it less and less useful.

I was then looking for a solution to have my todolist accessible from everywhere and that I could manage it myself, not hosted somewhere.

I found a very nice, fast and practical project that was easy to deploy and was using MySQL as backend: myTinyTodo.

However, I was missing the possibility to easily create a new task from an email (and especially on my phone).

This is why I decided to write a script that would perform exactly what I was looking for and integrated …

Poorman’s MySQL monitoring/trending

I could have also called this article When Pandas meet Dolphins in MySQL Shell.

Some time ago, I wrote a post related on how to collect initial relevant data when trying to seek help for MySQL.

Since then, the MySQL Shell engineering team implemented another powerful native utility that collect all the essential information and more and store them in a single zip file.

This zip archive contains TSV and YAML files that, for example, the MySQL Support Team could use to solve your eventual issue.

For more information regarding MySQL Shell’s util.debug.collectDiagnostics(), I encourage you to check the manual.

sysbench 1.1.0 rpm with SSL support

For a future article, I was again looking into the possibility of using sysbench to generate data and load on a MySQL database. However, I needed an SSL connection which only version 1.1.0 supports (see issue 308).

Alexey didn’t create a branch and/or release for the version 1.1.0. The code is the master branch.

As you know, I like to install software using the Operating System’s packaging and so I created a rpm for sysbench 1.1.0.

If you are also interested to use this version, here are the rpms for some popular OS and architecture (including Arm):

sysbench-1.1.0-1.fc35.x86_64
