Application development and deployment target.
Fri, Aug 28th 2015 12:09p   Radu Cadariu
Here's an exercise starting while laying on the beach totally disconnected. Yes WiFi does not work, data in roaming too expensive. Funcky idea popped up: I want to find examples of apps which cover the following basic set of deployment targets: mobile: Android / iOS, both mobile/tablets. Won't look for web/hybrid/native variants, just for functionality to work unde mobile umbrella, be it smartphone/tablets.web. Browsers, plain and simple (FF and Chrome, cross compatibility etc, frameworks t

LET'S HELP ROBERT READ AGAINRobert is learning in 4th grade at German Goethe School, he's 10 years old. His greatest passion is literature. Lately he couldn't read.

eclipse luna 4.4 - things I've done for Ubuntu 12.04 64bit

As I've reinstalled on 64bit, starting over with Eclipse, this time 4.4 Luna, here's a handler article with things I did so far, so I won't forget them: 1. .desktop file gedit /usr/share/applications/eclipse-luna.desktop with the following content: [Desktop Entry]Encoding=UTF-8Name=EclipseType=ApplicationComment=Eclipse Luna 4.4 64bit IDEExec=env UBUNTU_MENUPROXY=0 SWT_GTK3=0 //eclipse -vm //java Icon=//icon.xpmCategories=Application;Development;Java;IDEName[en]=EclipseTerminal=falseNoDisp

quick note for my dual displays - xrandr command worth booking

so I have a laptop and another monitor, whose position was to the left, and then I positioned it to my laptop's right. The problem was the mouse translation from laptop to the monitor, annoyance ! So I changed settings, and I got an error when trying to apply the new position. Solution is given here: http://askubuntu.com/questions/174195/gdbus-error-when-trying-to-enable-second-screen Which led me to issue locally: > xrandr --current and then the proper command for my case: > xran

Ever since Windows got rid of it's Start button, the world was starting to get confused. Or so I've read.  But then, a friend of mine asked me to solve something on her Win 8 laptop, knowing that I'm a guru... ha. And so, I couldn't but to realize that the world was right. It was confusing! And now I'm reading that Microsoft is returning it's.... let's call it launcher? http://www.theregister.co.uk/2014/07/15/win8_start_menu_leaked_screenshot/Linux desktop world has launchers with th

4 years on Ubuntu ... thoughts crossing my mind
Wed, Dec 31st 1969 7:33p   Radu Cadariu
I was checking stats on my blog when I spotted that on 6/8/10 I wrote my first impressions after I've switched to Ubuntu 4 years later, here are some thoughts: ~ I've performed one upgrade, from 10.04 to 12.04 LTS (I don't remember the details ... ha) ~ as much as all my apps (including some internal ones) are working fine on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, the same is not true for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. At this moment, I'm NOT ready to move upwards. ~ I've NEVER looked back not only to Win XP, but not ev

Wed, Dec 31st 1969 7:33p   Radu Cadariu
This is an article which I first spotted on Twitter, via Stephan who retweeted this article: http://newrelic.com/healthcare-team I'm refraining from making too much comments, I'm drafting several points coupled with my own experiences working in governmental engagements. when stakeholders say everything is ok, it usually is not.when stakeholders saw things crumbling down, they wanted to get things back on track within one week (sigh....). It took 5 months. With the team working 24/7 or some

added twitter timeline to this blog
Wed, Dec 31st 1969 7:33p   Radu Cadariu
I added a Twitter widget to this blog, from my timeline. I find myself ranting on Twitter faster.Also, interesting enough for me, this is the first post on the blog written from the mobile app Blogger (by Google), which I discovered a while back. So possibly my blog entries will get shorter. Or not...

so long InfoCenters, welcome KnowledgeCenter
Wed, Dec 31st 1969 7:33p   Radu Cadariu
I was stoked 5 minutes ago when I spotted in an article that the well known IBM Infocenters will probably fade away. How come such big news for IBM techies did NOT get noticed ? Almost everyone I know in IBM's world complained about the Infocenter, not necessary it's looks, but mostly it's content (and I might add Chrome browser compatibility) No matter what IBM's product you were faced to learn/master, you'd have to know what Infocenter means. It's almost a brand, they should keep it :)

Worklight 6.1 Studio - linux drill
Wed, Dec 31st 1969 7:33p   Radu Cadariu
With my recent downfall into Worklight and understanding the mobile landscape, I installed Worklight 6.1 Studio on my Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 32bit. After the install ( Eclipse Juno and WL 6.1 plugins ) I started to look around and here's the picture I've got: a) Eclipse Juno, WL 6.1, WAS LP 8.5.x, IBM's JDK 1.6 forms the local environment which allows one developer to do the work. Then the developer discovers Google's ADT, ADB and wonders how the heck can he build the Android .apk for the Workl

a look on the Google's two-factor auth
Wed, Dec 31st 1969 7:33p   Radu Cadariu
Now that I've been burned and had to enforce two-factor authentication for a private mail account (which obviously I thought it wasn't worth it), I get to look at the implementation options they've included. And I have to say I'm really impressed. First factor - something you know - your password Second factor - something you have - the phone or a dongle or a piece of paper. Or an application, as we'll see. Right ? That we know. A carefully crafted two-factor authentication which I've o

being cracked on gmail
Wed, Dec 31st 1969 7:33p   Radu Cadariu
it's not pretty. I experienced this today, and the frustration is exactly the same as I discovered my car has been broken into, several years ago. It was a matter of minutes. Actually, when I received the SMS [we "prevented" a suspicious login], I actually had a browser tab opened to the emails ! When I refreshed, ups ! enter your password ! I think it only took 4 minutes to regain total control of the account, however: imagine my embarrassment when a friend SMSed me: hey you have a virus, y

Notes 9 finally search "All Mails and Archives"
Wed, Dec 31st 1969 7:33p   Radu Cadariu
I'm stunned, I must have missed this somehow since I upgraded to Notes 9, probably because I gave up on hoping it would ever work ? However, someone else have to be joking me, they're suggesting how to actually disable the search "All Mails and Archives", they even did a video on it ! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DI_u4jz0UTQ Really, you're kidding ! Why would I want to do to that ? Recall 2009, when Radu's started to get frustrated on the exact same issue, being an early adopter and m

cross browser bookmarks sync on the same box ? not yet possible
Wed, Dec 31st 1969 7:33p   Radu Cadariu
I'm waiting for Mozilla and Google to come to an agreement, so I can easily import each other's bookmarks. This is a longer history for me, I want them cross-synced, because I use one or the other depending on the split second decision when I need to get into a browser :) I pretty much know the alternatives, cloud sync, mobile sync, I don't care. I'd consider myself a somewhat power user which needs to get his bookmarks in these two browsers, exactly the same. Without a third party, withou

dropped blogger dynamic views
Wed, Dec 31st 1969 7:33p   Radu Cadariu
keep it simple is the motto I should have followed in the first place. As much as I used to found blogger.com Dynamic Views attractive, I have to admit they're also weird. I use this place to post things I found interesting and share my experiences. I don't wanna create a magazine. So I've reverted the template, where you can find the archives, my mail [for head hunters, I haven't dropped the email and I haven't got used to reading messages on other social networks. And I haven't ceased

Wed, Dec 31st 1969 7:33p   Radu Cadariu
I'm curious about how many Notes customers out there knew about it, installed it and used/using it on a daily basis: http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21305206 Google returns 1500 results, couple of blogs and pretty much nothing else. I can bet this is one of those things which would have been so good to have integrated in the product's default functionality, very useful but never made it the prime time ....

eclipse's orion
Wed, Dec 31st 1969 7:33p   Radu Cadariu
I've watched several articles about Orion, Eclipse's web based development tools. But never got in their hosted hub, to test and play. Until today :) Now, that's worth the note to make it popular, it's for sure something ground breaking. http://wiki.eclipse.org/Orion/Getting_Started_with_Orion#Logging_into_Orion For now they allow CSS and JS. Good enough, let's see what's it capable of, I only suspect good things

Here's what I have: 1. a neat Gnome Terminal alternative is quake-[ohhhh that Quake !]-like terminal http://guake.org/ have handy the terminal sliding down from the screen, clearing my panel to sometimes 5 to 10 terminals [sorry, didn't get to switch tabs in Gnome Terminal] 2. very useful article about tweaking local ~/.ssh/config, several things I applied from it: http://blogs.perl.org/users/smylers/2011/08/ssh-productivity-

this blog updates to dynamic template
Wed, Dec 31st 1969 7:33p   Radu Cadariu
I've mocked a bit the Dynamic Views template from Google's Blogger. This is because the previous "about me" where I've posted my gmail.com address disappeared and I only noticed today when someone wanted to get in touch. However, on the right you can contact me on G+, also switched the default view which I like better. I don't have a facebook account so don't look for me the there :)

Rupa with her fishes. Rich music. Definitely.
Wed, Dec 31st 1969 7:33p   Radu Cadariu
Yesterday I discovered a new band whose music went straight to our souls (me, daughter and wife). Yes, I took my daughter to a live jam of Rupa & The April Fishes. Rupa, yes, it was us, me and my friends, grabbing the kids to your play. Hope you enjoyed it as much as they did :) Total admiration for this band and the organizers, http://www.cavalleria.ro, for making the effort to have them play, though the initial day and location changed on the last minute due to flight delays.

jazz savings - figures
Wed, Dec 31st 1969 7:33p   Radu Cadariu
As sometimes happens, looking for something and hit another one. I'm posting this just to back the findings with my feelings, don't take it for granted: http://dtoczala.wordpress.com/2010/01/06/real-world-jazz-results-our-customers-are-not-kind-of-blue/ These figures just might be true, and that is because of RTC flexibility. You can do whatever your project tells you to. The problem domain shifts from the tool focus to how to best make use of it. After getting your way around (I'd estimat

RTC and RRC
Wed, Dec 31st 1969 7:33p   Radu Cadariu
Just spotted an excellent article about Rational Team Concert (RTC) and Rational Requirements Composer (RRC), which actually fills a gap to my knowledge. Article is on devworks, a favorite place to look for interesting stuff. It touches a few points, go have a read. From some time I've been using RTC quite extensively, handling the process / workitems definition, together with its source control system. The point is that the more I know, the more I do understand that a tool isn't enough. I

blog template change time
Wed, Dec 31st 1969 7:33p   Radu Cadariu
I've applied the Dynamic Views of the blogger to my corner. Beside the place to rant, I use this as a bookmarking place to remember stuff. And yesterday, I could not find squat on my own blog !!! this was annoying :) So, my old template being like several years old, in the meantime Google bought Blogger, did some stuff with it (not sure I like it, though ...) ... however, I've set to experiment this fancy new feature. I specifically like the Flipcard view from the top left hand.

started mocking with DB2 Express-C
Wed, Dec 31st 1969 7:33p   Radu Cadariu
While I'm so lacking the db skills, which I freely admit, I've installed the free edition of DB2, called DB2 Express-C. Installed it on my *buntu, running and playing with it, everything cool. But look at these books right on the front page ! http://www-01.ibm.com/software/data/db2/express/getstarted.html Seems like I have some reading to do for the next period, just to keep me in shape

met a Big Data ironman
Wed, Dec 31st 1969 7:33p   Radu Cadariu
Last week (6th Apr.) I had the pleasure of watching Jeff Jonas live, on stage, speaking about the things he does. I'm trying to raise awarness, since this fella speaks simple and straighforward even for non-tech people. Big Data is not my domain and I personally think it's gonna take years for certain parts of Europe and their businesses to even start thinking on that. However, the things Jeff's addressing are fascinating, have a look on the following links: http://www.research.ibm.com/t
