  • Fun with EXIF Tags

    24 Apr 2014 | 5:00 pm
    When viewing Google Drive photo albums in Google Plus they seem to be heavily reliant on EXIF tags to determine when a photo was taken, so much so that they’ll use the upload date instead of the file modification date that is safed in Google Drive as the photo creation date. This obviously screws up the order of photo albums when importing old photo albums. To fix issues with EXIF tags I’ve previously always relied on jhead to fix timezone issues. Turns out though that jhead will not create new EXIF tags, but only edit existing ones; clearly not what I wanted to do. So I looked around and…

    24 Aug 2015 | 9:03 am
    Since IBM Bluemix is build on top of Cloud Foundry, all the knowhow and tooling available for the later can be used in Bluemix too. One of the tools I'm fond of is the Cloud Foundry command line cf. The tool is a thin veneer over the Cloud Foundry REST API and is written in GO. "Thin veneer" is a slight understatement, since the cf command line is powerful, convenient and - icing on the cake - extensible. A list of current plug-ins can be found in the CF Plug-in directory. Now the installation instructions haven't kept up with the cf releases, so here are the steps you need: Head to the CF…

However I don't carry my IoT gear every time (got lots of funny looks at airport security for it), but I still want to demo the app. The NodeRED side is easy. I just added a websocket output node and the server side is ready to roll. On the browser side I decided to use angular.js and one of its web socket libraries ng-websocket. The application code…

The world was good, of course only until you had enough applications and users complaint bitterly In the next iteration access to the network or intranet was moved to a central directory.

Over at Omnisophie Professor Dueck has a column titled "Scheinzwerge" (loosely translated: imaginative dwarfs|midgets|gnomes), dealing, besides others, with the Greek crisis. It draws heavily on a very German childhood classic "Jim Button and Luke the Engine Driver". In this famous children book and string puppet play we meet Mr. Tur Tur who is a imaginative giant (Scheinriese). From a distance Mr. Tur Tur looks like a huge giant, but the closer you…

On the other hand, there are some restrictions such as data types. Though most data types are supported, some data types such as LOB and XML are not supported. For example, if your fact table contains invoice PDF data stored in a BLOB column, you cannot use BLU Acceleration as it is, which means you…
