I'm a big proponent of Amazon Web Services (AWS) so it came as no surprise when Amazon today announced its latest addition to the AWS family - AWS CloudSearch.
"Amazon CloudSearch adds search capabilities for your website or application without the administrative burdens of operating and scaling a search platform. Amazon CloudSearch seamlessly scales as the amount of searchable data increases or as the query rate changes, and developers can change search parameters, fine tune search relevance and apply new settings at any time without having to upload the data again."
Create and configure a Search Domain. This is a data container and a related set of services. It exists within a particular Availability Zone of a single AWS Region (initially US East).
Upload your documents. Documents can be uploaded as JSON or XML that conforms to our Search Document Format (SDF). Uploaded documents will typically be searchable within seconds. You can, if you'd like, send data over an HTTPS connection to protect it while it is transit.
Atlassian SourceTree Pro-Tip
Wed, Nov 26th 2014 1:01p Mikkel Heisterberg I'm finding myself use Atlassian SourceTree more and more for my Git work as it's both intuitive, fast and very pleasing to the eye. Yesterday at an Atlassian event (Getting Git Right) I noticed that the branches were nested in one of the demos. I wondered how they did that but it turns out to be very simple. If you (re)name a branch and use slashes (/) in the name then SourceTree will automatically nest them. Very nice and does make it easier to distinguish between feature, release, bugfix br [read] Keywords:

Mon, Nov 10th 2014 1:41a Mikkel Heisterberg My stance on the POODLE / SHA-2 issues with Domino is well known and I haven't been holding anything back. And now - after a while - IBM is starting to release the promised tools to lay the foundation for SHA-2 signature support and TLS 1.0 support on IBM Domino. As part of my IBM Support Updates today I saw and entry called "Planned SHA-2 deliveries for IBM Domino 9.x". This is a technote outlining how IBM is bringing TLS 1.0 and SHA-2 support. This is all well and good and great that IBM st [read] Keywords: domino
Mac Yosemite, Java, IBM Notes and OnTime Group Calendar
Fri, Oct 17th 2014 1:51a Mikkel Heisterberg After upgrading my Mac to OS X Yosemite (10.10) I had to reinstall Java to make IBM Notes startup just like Rene describes. To install go to the download page for Java on apple.com, download and install. It takes around 5 minutes and you are ready to go. Once installed the Java runtime makes IBM Notes fly again and I can confirm that the OnTime Group Calendar UI's run just fine on OS X Yosemite. [read] Keywords: ibm
