I just wanted to mention a book that my friend Henrik Joreteg has now released: Human JavaScript - Practical patterns for simple but powerful JavaScript apps.  I used to work with Henrik at ESRI and had the opportunity to share with him for a long time..  He is an awesome dude, incredibly smart and we called him the "Vikingo" due to his Viking roots.  Best of all, he knows his JavaScript.  This book is tremendous for both newbies and gurus alike.  I hope you like the book as much as I did.  Here is his awesome intro video:




Display Number of Processors-Cores assigned on Linux

Here is a simple nice command to figure out how many processors or cores are assigned to a *unix machine.

cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep processor | wc -l


This basically processes the lines containing the processor information and counts them up for you, I got 4.  Try the same commands without the word count (wc) pipe and you can get much more information in detail.

cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep processor


By trying the above I got the following:

processor	: 0
processor	: 1
processor	: 2
processor	: 3


Try it even further without the grep for processor and you get lots of detailed information about your system.  Try it out!

cat /proc/cpuinfo


Open a terminal on a folder in Windows 8

I am happily surprised I can finally do this in Windows: Open a terminal right on a folder I want in the explorer.  Maybe this features has always been there but I just recently found that that if you do a "shift-right click" on a folder you get more options and one of them is the Open command windows here.  I was so excited about this (geek style) that therefore a blog entry ensued:

We are excited to host this month Matt Ingenthron, from Couchbase at our monthly ColdFusion user group in Cal Poly Pomona this August 8th at 7pm.  Here is a brief description of what he will present on:

Introduction to Couchbase Server, a NoSQL Document Database

Couchbase LogoCouchbase Server is a NoSQL document database for interactive applications. This session introduces Couchbase Server, the underlying distributed architecture, with a hands-on tour of Couchbase including online rebalancing while adding nodes to a cluster, indexing and querying and cross data center replication.

So if you are close to the area and want to come over, please do, we have FREE pizza, drinks and cool software raffles. I have been personally using Couchbase for a while now and absolutely love it.  We are even doing a blogging series about Couchbase over at the Ortus company blog as well.

cf10 and could not initialise class

I got into a weird error connecting CF Builder 2.01 to CF10 RDS to get some nice DB interactions going.  I was constantly getting the error:

could not initialise class

Both in the logs and as a nasty error popup.  This is reproducible using virtual hosts with Apache, I did not experience this on the standalone CF10 at all.  In Apache I have the CF10 connector installed globally, so I would assume it worked for ALL virtual hosts.  However, for some reason the above error is due to a connector issue.  To fix this, and I have no CLUE as to why it fixes it, but it does. Is to add the following to your virtual host configuration file:

JkMountFile "/Applications/ColdFusion10/config/wsconfig/1/"

This will fix the issue, so go back to builder and click on the refresh server and voila! Issue is gone!  Can someone explain me why?
