Use hawt.io for ActiveMQ web monitoring

The documentation at Apache for ActiveMQ’s integration in their Karaf OSGi container is a little out-of-date. Installing the activemq bundles from the repo doesn’t make available the troubleshoot-friendly web console typically available with at OOTB, basic AMQ install.

OSX Proxy Pac Woes

Apple’s OSX has a not-so-intuitive Network Settings interface. We use a company-wide .pac file to improve security and network performance. However, on the development team, we like to manage our own environments and this often leads to conflict with the more general company policies. I encountered an issue where I couldn’t access a development virtual machine running locally. While fixing it I came across some really interesting information.

Tip #3: Design everything you do

During my first internship out of college, Stella Lai gave me this tip and it has been the best professional advice I ever received. Try to practice this tip as literally as possible. The obvious areas are how you dress and how your house/apartment/room is organized. I would suggest not stopping there. Your emails should be written/composed clearly and beautifully. Your conversations with individuals should be designed through how you listen, how you maintain eye contact, how you respond (both spoken and unspoken). Everything you do should have a reason, no matter how small. Design requires constant practice, this is a great way to keep growing. ~ P.J. Onori

DIY: Indispensable goods

We’ve lost something. As we’ve become more efficient at producing everything, its become cheaper and cheaper to just buy. My iron just broke. I dropped it on the ground and it shattered the water reservoir. But I didn’t hesitate to immediately order a new one from Amazon that will be here tomorrow thanks to free 2-day shipping included with my Amazon Prime membership. I’m scrapping all my furniture and buying new decorations for my apartment. I wasn’t thinking twice about it. Then I saw this video:

Oh, The Places You'll Go!

You can get so confused that you’ll start in to race down long wiggled roads at a break-necking pace and grind on for miles cross weirdish wild space, headed, I fear, toward a most useless place. The Waiting Place…

…for people just waiting. Waiting for a train to go or a bus to come, or a plane to go or the mail to come, or the rain to go or the phone to ring, or the snow to snow or the waiting around for a Yes or No or waiting for their hair to grow. Everyone is just waiting.

Waiting for the fish to bite or waiting for the wind to fly a kite or waiting around for Friday night or waiting, perhaps, for their Uncle Jake or a pot to boil, or a Better Break or a string of pearls, or a pair of pants or a wig with curls, or Another Chance. Everyone is just waiting.

NO! That’s not for you!

Somehow you’ll escape all that waiting and staying You’ll find the bright places where Boom Bands are playing.

With banner flip-flapping, once more you’ll ride high! Ready for anything under the sky. Ready because you’re that kind of a guy!

Oh, the places you’ll go!

Thanks Wake!

Its too bad but I wish him well. He was a stalwart in the dugout for as long as I can remember. It was always thrilling to watch him pitch. Some nights that ball danced, others it didn’t. But it was always exciting. Thanks Wake for a solid 17 years.
