Come check out my guitar stylings with Painted Dog on Saturday, November 2nd. We'll be taking the stage sometime around 8pm. Despite what the flyer says, we should be playing for somewhere between 90 minutes and 2 hours. This is a fundraiser for Angels Among Us, in support of The Robert Preston Tisch Brain Tumor Center.
We'll be playing an eclectic set of covers and originals. As in, expect both Adele and Metallica—in the same set. If you're familiar with my playing, you already know that we'll be delivering them in our own special way.
There will be beer, food trucks, good bands, and lots of other stuff to keep the whole family entertained. And, it's for a good cause.
A printable (PDF) version of the flyer is available.
When I started creating content for this journal, I assumed that each of my projects would have an “
index story,” which would serve as the “
home” for that project. Using stories in that way would require me to make changes to that index story whenever a project had updates. In practice, something about that approach just felt wrong—I'd prefer to think of each story as a time capsule, and once a story is published it's kind of set in stone (except for minor edits).
Journal provides extensible components for integrating new kinds of structured content (as “
bundles”). Stories are implemented as a specialization of the bundle concept. In version 0.0.9, I've introduced a new “
project bundle,” to provide that missing home location for each of my projects, and capture a more standardized set of project-related metadata.
The content of this introduction is relevant as of the 1.0.1 version of Zabbix/J.
Zabbix/J is a framework for integrating Zabbix monitoring into Java applications. Zabbix is an “
enterprise-class open source distributed monitoring solution,” which provides telemetry and triggers across entire infrastructures. Zabbix/J makes it simple to expose metrics from your Java applications, giving them visibility as first class citizens in a Zabbix configuration.
