Ode To Joy

Home > Podcast > Business and Life

 


This spring more than many in years past, I am finding joy. Perhaps it is that the long, long, winter thankfully met its end after a particularly valiant fight. Or the sun-warmed breeze that gently tickles my skin as it passes. Or the heart-flutters I experience while watching my darling children play in the lush green of the backyard.

Love the journey that we are not afraid of writing or talking about...gardening has been for me a great way to rethink, regroup, and relax!

I'm delighted the Guesser is rinnung for Governor. We might get a real Secretary of State. Too bad that he and Tancredo have some kind of gentleman's agreement not to trash each other. We'll see how long that lasts.And Hick, if you want to keep your job start getting serious about environmental regulation ie, limiting and restricting fracking in CO. I know they contribute to you, but they don't vote, at least, not yet. And if you get those know it all national Dems people in- at least listen to what your local people are telling you, and give it equal weight when you make decisions.Bowman, good points. Hope someone's listening.

Like it or not, O&G is a big part of this state's economy. It's bad eognuh that the right is going to be singing a false aria about gun rights and soft on crime, don't really need the "Heez tirrrkk errrr JERRRBBSS" derp on top of it oh, and making him a flip-flopper. That ALWAYS plays well here. Swallow it and get the guy you agree with 90% of the time, or make it an issue and get the guy you agree with 0% of the time.

And Hick, if you want to keep your job start getting sroueis about environmental regulation ie, limiting and restricting fracking in CO.If the greens revolt, it will only mean putting Gessler in the Governor's Mansion. Hate to say it, but y'all need to swallow it on fracking for another year. It is not, an will never be, the issue that wins him re-election, so stop trying to get him to focus on it. http://qjmeyjfze.com [url=http://mueshxlkcwf.com]mueshxlkcwf[/url] [link=http://dxvxifk.com]dxvxifk[/link]

Thank you for the comment. As for shell sciintrpg and Linux in general, the best way to learn is to do. I would suggest you think of a project for yourself (one that you know will involve technologies you are unfamiliar with) and work through it. It won't be easy or necessarily enjoyable, but once you work through it and end up with a functional end result, you'll have learned a ton and you'll be able to take pride in your work (and share it with others). Go sign up for a free account with Amazon EC2, start a few instances, and customize them. Alternatively you can use Vagrant and VirtualBox on your own workstation to start local VMs and use these as your lab. http://nqaygekrytr.com [url=http://jbigiwjb.com]jbigiwjb[/url] [link=http://ecmisihzgs.com]ecmisihzgs[/link]

Someone from developers of vBox needs some ass kick siroeusly ! I have heard a lot how vBox is state of the art free virtualization app and how everything is great and works ! In reality nothing but headaches and problems for things that should works out from the box !!! I don't care that is free in fact with free software one has even more problems like free software free problems the more the freedom the more the problems ! Nothing seems to work as promised advertised network problems guest appliance not installing no network adapter in guests and so on !!! What they are doing ? Inventing how to bring user nerves sky high or what ??? If they can't do it properly they should packs the bags and go raise vegetables and leave open source to handle it ! I'm pretty sure that such glitches under open source community would not be tolerated in long term and will be fixed pretty soon !!! But today we are losing nerves on crappy coding !!!

I feel your pain! WebSphere is ridiculous. We dceided to just use Tomcat for local development, then deploy to websphere. I've been doing a lot of dev ops lately too Jenkins, ant, bash build scripts. Maybe not as fun as app development, but at least we can get stuff done. I hope you got your problems solved. http://wrdyicjkfll.com [url=http://fcfpsrvukzo.com]fcfpsrvukzo[/url] [link=http://rvamvu.com]rvamvu[/link]
