Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

If you haven’t seen Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. then you’re in for a treat (if you’re me). No TV so I didn’t get to see it untill it showed up on Netflix. Then I binge watched it. A very joyous occasion.

Why Adobe Max is the premier conference for creati...

Each year they arrive in droves, converging upon cities far and wide for several days of hobnobbing with some of the most creative talents around. This is MAX, the annual “creativity conference” launched in 2003 by Macromedia, the creators of Dreamweaver who wound up being acquired by Adobe only two years later.
Adobe has since upheld this tradition with events in North America, Europe, and Japan. Following the shift three years ago from packaged Creative Suite software and the advent of Creative Cloud, Adobe MAX has morphed into more of a consumer affair, with more designers, photographers, web coders, videomakers, and illustrators in attendance than developers—although Adobe MAX 2014, held in early October in Los Angeles, may wind up being remembered as the year those worlds started to converge. We think it was one of the best conferences of the year, and creatives should serioiusly consider attending in 2015. Here's why:... | Read more »

Private I: Lock your cloud backups away with an en...

It’s generally easier to keep safe the files we have under our control, on our internal and external drives, than those that waft far away from us on cloud-storage backup systems. Different backup services handle how they send data for storage and how they encrypt it once it arrives.
A quick overview of how cloud-storage systems work, regardless of the company. Client software running on your Mac finds new files in specified folders or files that have updated modification times since the last scan. Files are analyzed into pieces against which the software calculates a sort of shorthand or signature. This signature is compared against what’s stored in the cloud. If it matches, nothing happens—this is how these services conserve bandwidth.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Visio webcast January 6—value stream mapping templ...

A value stream map is a tool to study a production flow in the implementation of lean manufacturing. It plots the path of material and information from the supplier all the way through to the customer. By visualizing the entire value stream, inefficiencies can be identified and a plan can be put in place to reduce areas of non-value added time or waste.
This session is beneficial for anyone who uses or would like to learn how to use Visio 2013, which incorporates the lean methodology. Learn how to use the Visio value stream map template to illustrate the flow of materials and information in a lean manufacturing process.
In addition, Visio 2013 gives users the ability to link value stream maps to external data, run reports and add data graphics. Learn how to visualize your data and take advantage of the new Visio 2013 features to maximize your productivity and share data across the enterprise utilizing SharePoint and Visio services.

Configure sFlows on a Brocade 8470

sFlow is an industry standard that allows network equipment with the appropriate agents to send data to sFlow collectors, which then analyze network traffic. You can install sFlow on routers, switches, and even put agents on servers to monitor traffic. Brocade (along with most other switch manufacturers) supports sFlow.
Before you do anything log into the switch and check the current flow configuration:
show sFlow
To configure, log into the switch and use the the int command to access an interface. From within the interface, use the following command:
sflow forwarding
Then exit the interface using the very difficult to remember exit command:
exit
Repeat the enablement of forwarding for any other necessary interfaces. Next, we’ll configure a few globals that would be true across all interfaces. The first is the destination address, done using the destination verb followed by the IP and then the port (I’m using the default 6343 port for sFlow... | Read more »

How Does Your Page Rank?

There are a number of services that rank web sites. I find that I check alexa.com here and there. So as you employ various techniques to make your site better, you can check back and see the long term impacts of how these efforts impact your ranking.

You can also see demographics of visitors.

 
And you can see geographic data as well.

The Secret About Computers

I’ve written lot of articles about computers. But none mattered. You see, I could have summed it all up in one simple, easy to digest piece of information: There are little men and women running around inside your computer. They take bits of data, in Bushels of 8 bits (a byte) from one place to another, doing maths and even run inside network cables to bring information from their homeworld, tehGoogle. These little men fly through the air so fast to bring you wireless that you can’t even see them. They’re really nice and you forgot about them for Christmas. That’s ok, they’re so little, they ate a crumb of Santa’s cookies and were all sick for a day from the sugar. They thought you left it for them. Proof: this jigsaw puzzle hanging in my home office.

Git-Fat Intro Part Two – Setup and Migration

In our last installment, we introduced a solution for syncing large or already compressed files around without strictly commit’ing them to git proper when collaborating on a munki repo. This was by leveraging the git-fat add-on/script, which only relies on python(2.7) and rsync. Let’s talk about how, if you followed Hannes Juutilainen’s wiki page on setting up git to work with your munki repo, you’d migrate over to this newer workflow.First, we need to setup git-fat, which starts by ‘installing’ it (putting it in your path). The original script isn’t as actively developed as one particular fork (which is the one you’d get if you installed it with pip), so we’re going to grab that one in the most simplistic way possible (as a user that’s allowed to run commands... | Read more »

Introduction to Git-Fat for Munki

Do you work on munki with a team of folks (meaning more than one)? You probably wish you could use MunkiAdmin for everything, but mounting the munki repo over the network may be a poor experience as things grow very large, and as the server world is mostly *nix (if you’re lucky), running MunkiAdmin on the server itself is out of the picture. It’s sheer luck that Hannes Juutilainen wants to help with all of our workflow needs, so he composed the original page on git usage for the official munki wiki. Git was made for a distributed, (latent) network-aware world, but as the wiki page takes into account (by instructing you to create a .gitignore file, which most GUI clients can easily... | Read more »
