Upgrade notes on macOS Sierra

Fri, 03 Mar 2017 12:08:04 +0000

I’m notorious for not updating OS X (macOS) too quickly, preferring to wait months on end for Apple to iron out bugs. I just hope that in 2017 they don’t make a major release and something sensible, i.e. that fixes usability and makes the OS much more stable. However when you buy a new Mac, […]

Compression algorithms, archival

Sat, 14 Jan 2017 08:02:46 +0000

My strategy for photos is to place them in my Dropbox folder, and sync them to one box in particular but they also live on the Dropbox cloud (it also used to be that they end up on Flickr as they sometimes still do; Google Photos does backup in regular resolution stuff from my iPhone). […]

New Year’s Note 2017

Sat, 31 Dec 2016 19:49:29 +0000

This year we are spending New Year’s Eve in Lisbon, Portugal, and I’m glad to report its much warmer than Vienna last year. TripIt says I did 25 trips, 252 days on the road, 463,491km travelled, 47 cities, and 20 countries in 2016. So less travel in terms of distance than 2015 (528,151km) but more […]

Migrating to new iPhones

Fri, 23 Dec 2016 16:51:08 +0000

When we do upgrades, we have to do them family wide which is four devices at any given time. This time we all settled on the iPhone 7 in varying colours. Naturally, I got the jet black variant. I also realised that I didn’t need the form factor of the Plus sized phones – quite […]

Tab Sweep – MySQL ecosystem edition

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 10:04:26 +0000

Tab housekeeping but I also realise that people seem to have missed announcements, developments, etc. that have happened in the last couple of months (and boy have they been exciting). I think we definitely need something like the now-defunct MySQL Newsletter (and no, DB Weekly or NoSQL Weekly just don’t seem to cut it for […]

Speaking in December 2016

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 07:17:43 +0000

I neglected to mention my November appearances but I’ll just write trip reports for all this. December appearances are: ACMUG MySQL Special Event – Beijing, China – 10 December 2016 – come learn about Percona Server, MyRocks and lots more! A bit of a Japan tour, we will be in Osaka on the 17th, Sapporo […]

Debian and MariaDB Server

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 08:13:44 +0000

GNU/Linux distributions matter, and Debian is one of the most popular ones out there in terms of user base. Its an interesting time as MariaDB Server becomes more divergent compared to upstream MySQL, and people go about choosing default providers of the database. The MariaDB Server original goals were to be a drop-in replacement. In […]

Cleaning up the Mac, backup edition

Mon, 28 Nov 2016 07:11:22 +0000

A while back, I realised that was getting too large and it was easy to purge it. I had to do this again. The app I use to see where my space is going is OmniDiskSweeper. Its free, and I highly recommend it. I use Arq to handle backups (in addition to Backblaze, and […]

CfP for Percona Live Santa Clara closes November 13!

Thu, 10 Nov 2016 16:49:24 +0000

At Percona Live Amsterdam recently, the conference expanded beyond just its focus areas of MySQL & its ecosystem and MongoDB to also include PostgreSQL and other open source databases (just look at the recent poll). The event was a sold out success. This will continue for Percona Live Santa Clara 2017, happening April 24-27 2017 […]

Region restrictions in a globalised world

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 08:57:52 +0000

I think we can all agree that globalisation has won, and we live in a flat world. However when it comes to consuming media, we still live in a world of regional restrictions. Rights are not issued globally, and rights owners see this as milking every last penny by ensuring that regional restrictions apply. This […]
