Comic Area created

Finally uploaded something to the ComicCMS that I installed a little while ago. I am at work, so I am not going to spend a lot of time on it. But it does seem easy and intuitive to navigate and post and tag content. It even keeps an order, so my “Rescue Mission” can be displayed… Continue reading Comic Area created

Default Liferay Vaadin project broken

So I mentioned yesterday that I am attempting to make my first Vaadin app using Eclipse and the Liferay IDE plugin. This post is a word of warning to those trying to do the same thing.

Ant + Eclipse + Liferay Plugins = ECJ error

I am working on a way to programmatically create Liferay users for our upcoming portal release. In order to get my feet wet with the technologies that our team will be using, I want to build a quick and dirty test app that will create a user in Liferay and LDAP. But before I could… Continue reading Ant + Eclipse + Liferay Plugins = ECJ error

LDAP cn trouble with Liferay

I remember this fact as soon as I was given the ‘rmdir: failed to remove `Pictures/’: Directory not empty” response on… Continue reading Runaway upload conclusion

Linux command of the day

So I decided to take advantage of the free 50Gb storage space that DreamHost offers all of its webhosting customers today. Unfortunately, I didn’t understand that I needed to use a special user account that Dreamhost provides for me for this activity. So I am currently uploading approximately 25Gb of pictures to my account on… Continue reading Linux command of the day

The cat-brained coder

This is my first attempt at a blog. I’ve been meaning to do it for a while, but it never felt like my ideas were fleshed out enough or I had enough time to sit down and come up with something decent. That is still true today. But, inspired by this Coding Horror post, and… Continue reading The cat-brained coder
