OSX and case-sensitive file system

I am really angry now.

A few weeks ago, when I was finished my MySQL backend checker I lost about two hours of work because I wasn’t commit anything to git, but I overwrote the working file with one of my doodle files – which file had the same name but with camel case. I had a default APFS filesystem (on High Sierra) – which is not case sensitive. This was a real amateur mistake I admit it, but the damage was done, I had to recreate everything (actually the second time I was way faster, it took around an hour.)

Anyways, I had to reinstall my computer anyhow, so when I get to the point to decide what kind of filesystem I want to use, I haughtily selected ‘CASE SENSITIVE’. “Yes, please give me a good, old-fashioned Linux-like case-sensitive file system.”

I did not use this laptop too much so far (this is a different story, maybe I’ll talk about …

I guess I am back again

This was fun!

I mean, I did not create any new content here for a while, and I have very good reasons about that – but tbh I was lazy, and overwhelmed with stuff to do.

We migrated everything to AWS – so be prepared for some Amazon related posts, I changed MySQL to Aurora and my company itself changed a lot.

In this pause time, I tried to migrate everything to Jekyll, but it wasn’t a success, then I spent the time to migrate everything to Hugo … and now I am on WordPress again. Funny.

In the future, I plan to make the posts here a bit more diverse, not just tech stuff. We’ll see it.

Introduction

Just a quick introduction to begin with.

I joined Sun Microsystems in Feb 2009 to look after the product management for MySQL Cluster and MySQL replication.

I started my career with Nortel (technically BNR which was the R&D arm of Northern Telecom but everything later got merged and rebranded as Nortel). I was responsible for writing the original proprietary, in-memory database for Nortel’s HLR product. Later on, we used a number of 3rd party databases for the HLR (provisioning rather than real-time) and then HSS - starting with Oracle for the HLR and then SOLID but then settling on MySQL Cluster as the scaleable real-time database for the HSS.

When I left Nortel (via an IBM rebadging) I moved to Sun, hoping to use my experience as a MySQL Cluster customer to help the team build upon their strong product.

So far, so good - I’ve been really impressed both with the MySQL team and with how well the product is …
