SharePoint MVP AMA on October 29th

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
You should mark the 29th of October at 1pm EST (18:00 CET) in your calendar. The MVP Chats are back! A couple of years back we regularly held MVP chats where anyone could ask SharePoint MVPs anything (almost at least). These chats was really successful and we received really good feedback. Unfortunately the tool we used for the chats was abandoned and we have been looking for a new way to do this. We think we’ve found a really interesting format for this by using the AMA format at Reddit (/r/sharepoint). There will be at least
fifteen SharePoint MVP’s answering YOUR questions so feel free to tune it the 29th. We will try to make sure that at least one MVP answers your question, the ones most skilled in the topic of the question, and we’ll make sure that not everyone answers it (which normally is an issue with forums like this). We will have experts from infrastructure, to design, to development, to no-code (all definitions of that!) solutions and more, for both SharePoint and Office 365 This will be a great opportunity for all of you to finally get that hard question answered.

Print out the maximum depth of recursion allowed

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
Karl Seguin tweeted the following earlier this week: "An interview question I sometimes ask: Write code that prints out the maximum depth of recursion allowed."

This question is interesting for a couple of reasons. First, it's a shorter FizzBuzz; can the candidate open an IDE, write a few lines of code, compile and run them? And second, does he know what recursion is?

Now let's say, the interviewee knows how to write code and is familiar with the concept of recursion. If he had to do this exercise in C#, he might come up
with something along these lines.

Before you let him run his code, you ask him to guess the output of this little program. If he's smart, he won't give you much of an answer. Instead he will point out that the result depends on the runtime, compiler, compiler switches, machine architecture, the amount of available memory and what not.

If he's not familiar with the C# compiler and runtime, he might even say there's a chance the integer will overflow before the call stack does.
The recursive method call is the last call in this method, making it...(Read whole news on source site)

The holidays, plans & what is next

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
So, we are done with the holidays here. The last month was basically very little work, because a lot of our people were out for the holidays. Internally, we are gearing up to finish the website for RavenDB 3.0, while another part of the team is focused on stability and performance. We just hired another new guy, and he is going to be working pretty much on distribution from now on. I’ll report more on that in a few weeks. Looking at the blog, I’ve mostly been talking about RavenDB, and I want to do a small shift and talk
about other topics, so I’m declaring the next two weeks to be RavenDB free weeks. I’m going to continue to blog regularly, of course, but I’m going to be talking about other topics for a change. Don’t worry, we haven’t stopped working on RavenDB, it is just that it is pretty boring to hear about things like test clusters, or how we work on issues from the people trying out the RC builds. ...(Read whole news on source site)

OSX Yosemite Automount NAS Share

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
On my fresh installed Yosemite on my Macbook Air I want a mounted folder in my homedir when I am at home near my NAS. When I'm not at home it must not bother me with the none existing share. And when I'm back home it must silently reconnect.

This can be done by using autofs.

edit the file /etc/auto_master

## Automounter master map
+auto_master # Use directory service
/net -hosts -nobrowse,hidefromfinder,nosuid
/home auto_home -nobrowse,hidefromfinder
/Network/Servers -fstab
/Users/broersa/Documents/Shares auto_resources
/- -static 

The line starting with /Users is added. This will automount on the path selected.
It will pick the resources from auto_resource. This is a new file we have to create:

all -fstype=smbfs ://username: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it /all 

This will automount the share all on the path /Users/broersa/Documents/Shares/all

do a "chmod 600 auto_resource" to protect the username password from other users then root.

reload the config.

automount -vc

Don't forget to do everything as sudo.

Now you have your share always available when in range.

OSX Yosemite Calibre with books on NAS

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
I want my book library on the NAS and the database on my local disk.

First start calibre and make a regular library on the NAS. (see my other post on how to mount an autofs (auto mounted) shared folder in your OS X home directory).

Now close calibre.

Set the environment variable CALIBRE_OVERRIDE_DATABASE_PATH.

To do this on Yosemite create an applescript script with the following content:

do shell script "launchctl setenv CALIBRE_OVERRIDE_DATABASE_PATH /Users/broersa/Documents/calibre/metadata.db"

change the path to your own local path. Don't forget to add metadata.db

and save this as an application.
Now go to System Preferences - Users & Groups and click on the tab Login Items. Click on the + and add the saved application as a login item.

Now move the file metadata.db from the library path on the NAS to your local directory.

Now log off and log in again to OS X. This will set the environment setting.

Start calibre and it will use the (faster) local database with the book library on the NAS,
