maven-release Plugin and GitHub Issues

Posted by & filed under , .

This one is another good find from the maven “gotchas” archives. Good enough at least to make it onto my blog 🙂 I brief, I’ve been pulling my hair for the best part of yesterday trying to figure out what’s going wrong with my maven-based project, which used to work otherwise fine until recently. It […]

Samsung Galaxy Gear Watch — Issues with Gear Manager App

Posted by & filed under , , .

I finally got myself one of those smart watches, and since I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 phone and quite pleased with the Samsung products and the way they integrate, I went for the Samsung Galaxy Gear Watch. I’m not going to go on about where can you buy and how much, a simple search […]

The Sun Is Burning Out

Posted by & filed under , , , .

OK, I’ve used this blog before to promote various technologies, frameworks and libraries and all sorts of open-source projects (mine or otherwise) so somehow I don’t feel ashamed now to blatantly promote this. For those of you who know me, you know that one of my ambitions (apart from making a decent career in computers, […]

What Most Schools Don’t Teach…

Posted by & filed under , , .

If you work in IT, you have probably by now have seen the famous video on YouTube labelled “What most schools don’t teach” — where Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates and a few other prominent figures are talking about how easy it is to program, and how only 10% of the USA schools teach programming. It […]

AWS S3

Utility for Version-Enabled AWS S3 Buckets

Posted by & filed under , .

OK, Amazon, I have to tell you something: you dropped the ball a bit on this one! I absolutely love AWS and every day I seem to find something new about them (though, granted, not sure if that says something about the innovation in Amazon or it says something about my ignorance!?). However, having used […]

melovesvideos Goes Live!

Posted by & filed under , , , .

About 2 weeks or so ago, Amazon launched their Elastic Transcoder and at the time this has captured my attention right away — to the point where I had to go and add it to my AWS account and try it for myself. Regardless of anything else, that is an amazing tool and Amazon did […]

Product Idea — Dropbox Reloaded

Posted by & filed under , , , , .

I just had this thought just now and I thought I have to start writing down these “product ideas” — which are just random ideas of small improvements for various products that come to my mind every now and then — as otherwise nothing will happen. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t expect that simply […]

java code

Of Java and Assembler

Posted by & filed under , , .

The title would no doubt puzzle quite a few of you — after all I’m putting in the same sentence a low-level, processor-specific language (for no better term for “assembler” — I know, I know, I know, “it’s not really a language”, right?) with a rather high-level, even platform-independent language like Java. So, right away […]

“I dont need advertising!”

Posted by & filed under , , .

I talked in my previous post about people who are self-proclaimed online advertising haters and touched there on the subject of the targeted and not targeted audience when it comes to online advertising. I felt the subject deserves a few more lines from me so here it is: I know a lot of you keep […]

How do you attract your employees?

Posted by & filed under , .

“We are one of the greatest companies to work for!” I’m sure you’ve heard this a few times through your interviews. And only very rarely it proves to be the case. (leaving aside the fact that “great” is a subjective term and as such it’s difficult to compare the “greatness” of 2 companies , which […]

Speaking of Amazon-WordPress Integration…

Posted by & filed under , , .

Found this plugin called WP-Amazon (check out the site here: http://manalang.com/wp-amazon/). Once configured it adds this button which allows you to search and insert content from Amazon into your post. So just to try it out, in this post there should be an Amazon link to Leonard Cohen’s I’m Your Man CD. Unfortunatelly it doesn’t […]
