To Azure PaaS.
Just over eight years ago I left Novell, I have been at Microsoft for eight years – that means longer than my time at Novell.
It is a different world from then.
I recently switched from the stock ASUS firmware for the home wireless infrastructure to the ASUSWRT-MERLIN builds.
Stable and fast – and I like it. http://asuswrt.lostrealm.ca/
I just upgraded a SLES 11 SP4 VM running in Azure from an A2 to a D2v2 – it’s resized and settling. Now sitting on newer hardware with 7GB RAM and dual proc.
Resize and restart was super fast.
I keep having to remember the fiscal year formulae for Excel – fiscal year starts July 1, ends June 30.
Here’s my note so I can remember:
Fiscal year: =IF(MONTH([cell])>6,YEAR([cell])+1,YEAR([cell]))
Fiscal month: ==IF(MONTH([cell])>6,MONTH([cell])-6,MONTH([cell])+6)
Old but still functional – here’s my placeholder for updating from Acrobat Pro 9.0.0 to 9.5.5.
I was really happy to see Live Writer transition from a Microsoft product to the Open Source World.
Live Writer is my go-to blog composing app. Still works beautifully after all these years.
You can download Open Live Writer at http://openlivewriter.org/
Something changed in SLES 11 SP4 (or one of the very recent updates).
The default mysql.sock moved to /var/run/mysql/mysql.sock rather than the previous location in /var/lib
For some reason this meant that the defaults for PHP5 were looking for the wrong location for the socket.
A quick cleanup of /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini to include mysql.default_socket = /var/run/mysql/mysql.sock and everything is back functioning.
SLES 11 SP4 has been out for a few months now. Finally found the maintenance window to do the updates.
Great post here on how to do the magic with zypper.
I have been a long time user of Gallery Project. I migrated from jAlbum in mid 2003 and migrated through G1 up to G2 with integration into WordPress.
Six years ago I made a note to really investigate the changes from Gallery 2 to Gallery 3 – I did the homework; but the change didn’t make sense for many reasons.
Last year I was saddened to see that the Gallery Project had gone into hibernation. Always sad to see an open source and community led project get shuttered.
Less photos these days; we tend to share a limited number via Facebook – but still the dilemma – what to do with the hundreds of thousands of old photos and rapidly rotting code.
