Frantic WordPress Theme — Update

Posted by & filed under , , .

OK, so I’ve decided perhaps it’s time I give my blog’s look a refresh. I looked around and found this WordPress theme called Frantic on WordPress theme website: https://wordpress.org/themes/frantic/. It had the right look I was after but was missing one tiny thing — a “footer sidebar”. Previously I was using the Intrepidity WordPress theme […]

Jenkins CI Trick to Prevent Task from Triggering Itself on SCM Commit

Posted by & filed under , .

I’ve come across this recently working on a project in Netflix and thought worth sharing. The project I was dealing with packages some JavaScript code which, before deployment, needed to be minified. We have set up our Jenkins task such that it polls Git for changes in the master branch and when the changes are […]

New Blog Layout and New Intrepidity Theme Changes

Posted by & filed under , , .

So I’ve bitten the bullet finally, and changed my blog layout. For those of you repeated visitors I’m sure you noticed, for the rest of you who are new to my site, it’s worth saying that the old theme has been on my blog since its inception — which is a few good years back, […]

Storing Lists Using Evernote — via API

Posted by & filed under , , .

I’ve been playing for a while with Evernote and their API, which I find rather simple and effective (well done, guys!) — and as such on a few pet projects I have started considering moving the storage to Evernote itself. The beauty of using Evernote is that the storage is already structured for you in […]

Make ShareThis “Chicklets” Look All the Same

Posted by & filed under , , .

I’ve written before on my blog about ShareThis — I do love their WordPress plugin and their analytics provide some interesting insights into my blog traffic. There is however a niggly little thing which has been bugging me for a while — and it’s all to do with the way their “chicklets” look. (If you’re […]

First Steps with Jolokia

Posted by & filed under , , .

In a (rather old) previous post I have talked about using Sun (ahem Oracle!) JMX/HTML bridge to manage and monitor your applications. As it happens, that agent has been discontinued and due to various licensing issues (I’m guessing) one can’t even download it normally from a maven repo, and has to rely on all sorts […]

CDN — The Basics — Part 2

Posted by & filed under , , .

In the previous post, “CDN — The Basics — Part 1”, we got as far as looking at the situation where a load ballancer is employed in front of a set of identical web servers, and the DNS is handled externally by a dedicated DNS server, potentially in a different cloud/region/data center. As it has […]

CDN — The Basics — Part 1

Posted by & filed under , , .

I wish I could put a “1 out of N” at the end of this post title, however, I have no ideas how far this will go unfortunately; I do however realise that the more I go into details about this subject the more there is to be said about it. And what I have […]

(Small) Bug with Oracle’s HTML/JMX Interface

Posted by & filed under , , .

I posted before an article about how to use Oracle’s (well, Sun’s, since it was started really before the Oracle acquisition) HTML/JMX agent to monitor your apps via JMX here. For those of you who went ahead and decided to use that interface, you probably noticed a small (but rather annoying bug) in that component […]

maven site Problem with Hash Symbol (#)

Posted by & filed under , .

Not sure if it’s just me who’s been digging around this issue for a while, maybe it’s common knowledge to the maven community, but I found this very frustrated dealing with this and researching it on the net, so having finally found the solution to this I thought I’d post it here. If nothing else, […]

Optimize the Download Speed of a Web Page: CSS

Posted by & filed under , .

Since I’m going through the old website and resurrecting pages which seem to be still sought after by visitors to my website (I can tell this based on search engines terms they use and what they search for then on my website), I’ve come across this old one, talking about optimizing the loading speed of […]

Customizing Squirrel Mail Login Page

Posted by & filed under , .

For those of you who are using SquirrelMail, you might have noticed that it looks a bit well, let’s just say amateurish 🙂 That doesn’t go to say it isn’t a good package! (I personally love it and I think it does a pretty good job — hence my additions to this software.) However, as […]

Server side developers

Posted by & filed under , , .

OK I had this post in my mind for a while now — the only reason I’m publishing it so late is because it started initially with just small nags in my head about server side developers and I thought at the time one small nag from me hardly constitutes enough reason for a post. […]
