Random musings..

It seems I haven't written anything for quite a long time. In regards to tech, there wasn't much to write home about lately. I've tried out a bit of android programming (ok, actually only got to the point of running the SDK examples on the emulator.. :P), I've dabbled a bit more with django and learned how to create form generated from the models, and of course learned a ton of things about plone. Currently my focus is more on attempting to port PloneMeeting over to be used on Plone 3. Still learning a lot more about this. I'm very excited about Plone 4. It's fast and it runs on Python 2.6. And that's basically it for tech more the less.

Apart form that, the current state of the country is pretty messed up if you ask me. I can't talk about it without feeling depressed. So I'm not going write anything about it here. It'll make me even more depressed.

On a happier note, my new house is almost ready to move in. Just have to unpack and organize all the stuff which we just brought back from Sepang Putra last week. There was quite a lot of things not to like about the house at first, but after a new coat of paint, some fans, a new sink and some pipeworks, it's turning to be pretty sweet. I'm hoping to finally be able to sleep at my own house by next week.

I really should try to write more often. My ideas are just not flowing anymore now.

Oh and one more thing. If you are in an organization which needs an easy to use intranet where members can share information, upload files, mark events easily, do contact us (ie Inigo Consulting). Manage & share your organizational knowledge. For more information go to http://www.inigo-tech.com. And once I can get PloneMeeting to work, you can even manage your meetings in your intranet too. Contact us now.. :D

haproxy on Centos 7 with SELinux

Setting up haproxy and varnish with reference to the configuration from these sites: http://sharadchhetri.com/2014/12/20/how-to-install-varnish-4-version-on-centos-7-rhel-7/ https://www.upcloud.com/support/haproxy-load-balancer-centos/ And finally can access plone on the server. But when I check the haproxy status, only client1 can be accessed. All other clients were down with general socket error, permission denied. Googling a bit I finally found out it was due to SELinux. Refer to this page: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/26420729/haproxy-health-check-permission-denied With the solution from that page, I installed policycoreutils-python and tried to run the command given: semanage port --add --type http_port_t --proto tcp 8081 But that command failed with the error that the port was already defined. When I looked it up using: semanage port -l | grep 8081 It belonged to some other type (transproxy_port_t). When I tried to delete the type using: semanage port -d -t transpro…

Installing Centos 7 on HP G7 Server

When I first initially tried it, the installer cannot detect any local hard disk to install to. After much googling found out that it was because a certain driver for the Smart Array Controller is no longer available on Centos 7. To allow for use of the new driver on old hardware, you need to enable the option. Once the DVD has booted and on the first menu screen, highlight the first option and then press tab which would bring you to a command line where you can add additional parameters to boot. Add the following parameters: hpsa.hpsa_allow_any=1 hpsa.hpsa_simple_mode=1 And then press enter to boot. You should now be able to install as you wish. After installation, on the first boot, make sure at the menu, press 'e' to edit the parameters and add them again. Then once booted, go to /boot/grub2/grub.cfg to permanently add the parameters to the menu.

Me and my sleep apnea

I have been suffering from sleep apnea for quite a few years already. It started to show when I was still with OSCC some 6 years back when I would sometimes "accidentally" sleep at my cubicle. Early on I just dismissed it as because I was growing fat (we ate a lot at OSCC.. :P and I barely went anywhere except my cubicle) and also because of babies. Oh babies.. those cute little things that keeps you awake at night so that they can be so cute and charming when your friends and relatives come over the next day. So it was dismissed. Later on I got more and more used to sleeping at work, started associating it with my lack of motivation and sometimes feeling of downright depression. And I kept growing fatter and fatter, which I assumed was the reason why I was getting more and more tired.

But then around 2 years ago a friend of mine suggested maybe I've got sleep apnea. And a few other people suggested I go to a sleep clinic and all that. Put it off for quite a while. Until…
