CF United 2007!

So I'm here at CF United 2007, and the topics this year look very exciting.  Some great news is that Flex 3 (coming soon) appears to be moving toward open source.  This is great news, and means that the platform will get expanded on by the development community.  I'm hoping this also means that Flex Builder (based on Eclipse) will be brought into modern times, and more in line with the eclipse development roadmap.

The other great news is the new features in ColdFusion 8, codename scorpio.  Looks like a lot of new capability with PDF integration, and even more exciting is that CF8 will include server analytics tools built in, so developers and sys admins can have a better look at how our apps are running on CF Server.  Good stuff.

My talk is scheduled for thursday june 28th at 4:30pm, so around that time you can expect that I will post the powerpoint file and code samples we used in the presentation.

Making Macbook Air with 128GB SSD usable with Bootcamp

I recently got a new Macbook Air 11" (the 2012 version) and loaded it with goodies like 8GB ram and 2GHz Core i7.  What I DIDN'T upgrade was the internal SSD.  My config came with 128GB SSD and I refused to pay $300+ to upgrade it to 256GB.  Yeah I know, some call me cheap, but SSds cost $75-$150 for 240GB, so adding another 128GB for $300 seemed way too steep for me.  I figured "ok, I'm going to make 128G work!"

Here is the story of how that went...

Installing python 3.4.x on OSX El Capitan

I love "brew" package manager, but sometimes being too progressive breaks things.  I have several python apps that I maintain that get deployed to AWS using Elastic Beanstalk.  AWS eb can deploy with python 2.7 or 3.4.  Any recent 'brew install python3" will get 3.5.1. #annoying

Dell XPS M1330 + Snow Leopard Hackintosh

I have been working with a Dell XPS M1330 laptop for a few years now.  It doesn't quite match up to the newest notebooks in terms of performance, but it certainly still has some life in it.  I had previously installed OSX 10.5.x on it as an experiment, and had moderate success.  I decided to revisit this idea again to install Snow Leopard (OSX 10.6) on the Dell M1330, and keep some notes for those of you brave enough to Hackintosh your own machine...
