MuleSoft CloudHub to Amazon AWS RedShift Proxy

I encountered a situation in which we needed to connect a Mule ESB flow running in MuleSoft’s CloudHub to an Amazon AWS Redshift cluster.  This doesn’t work out of the box.  I’ve outlined the steps to create a proxy server below. The original write up I did is also available in this Gist. Overview Below …

Manually Removing WordPress Mobile Edition

I had an old version of WordPress Mobile Edition installed along with the Carrington mobile theme, but I recently changed to a different plugin. Also after upgrading to WordPress 3.x a while back, I noticed the plugin had stopped working and was no longer visible on the plugins page. This morning I started off by …

Syncing Gmail Contacts Birthdays and Events with Google Calendar

I am horrible with other people’s important dates, e.g., birthdays, anniversaries, date you got your appendix removed, etc. I just realized I should put all that info into my Gmail Contacts, and then it will appear on my Google Calendar automatically. Oh wait… It doesn’t show up. Damn. Why doesn’t it work? Turns out, this …

ReadSync Facebook App for Kindle Users

Ever since I got my Kindle at Christmastime, I was thinking that there should be an application that lets you view your Kindle bookshelf, and share books with friends, share what you are reading, have read, and may recommend.  I have been using the weRead on Facebook for quite awhile, but you have to manage …

iTunes Ping

I just recently started using iTunes Ping, and my first impression was ‘Facebook/Twitter for Music’; pretty neat.  If you have friends on Ping, then you can follow them, and see what they are listening to and/or interested in.  Finding your ‘actual’ friends is pretty easy, since you know there name and often times e-mail, but …

Greenshot – free screenshot tool

After using SnagIt for several years with my old company, I was in need of an open source replacement.  After using everyone’s favorite research assistant, I found Greenshot.  It doesn’t have all the bells and whistles that SnagIt has, but it has the basics which is what you use 80% of the time anyway. So …

Simple Calendar Control for Web Application

I originally did this back in 2007, but did not want to lose the content, so I decided to put it up here. I found a robust and relatively simple calendar control to use for web UIs. It can use a pop-up window or a floating tag. I prefer the latter as it makes the …

Google Chrome Frame

I installed Google Chrome Frame about a month ago, and I am very impressed with how responsive and quick Internet Explorer is with JavaScript intensive web pages now.  If you use a lot of JavaScript intensive websites, e.g., Facebook, Gmail, Google Maps, Google Calendar, etc., you will notice a significant improvement in performance when using …

PyXML for Python 2.5

I was looking for a version of PyXML for Python 2.5 and had some difficulty due to the project being unmaintained.  I was able to find someone that compiled PyXML 0.8.4 for Python 2.5.  You can find it here.
