I'm writing this post just to share an interesting conversation that popped up on #sproutcore this week. Sproutcore is a huge framework and there is no amount of documentation that will explain it all, that's why I suggest you hang out in IRC. Even if you don't have questions to ask you'll learn a lot from others'.

In this case the question was: how do I make my custom view update whenever one of the content object properties change?
The perfect case for this, I think, would be if we were writing a custom SC.ListItemView.

In my case, prior to discovering SC.ContentDisplay I used the following configuration in a custom ListItemView:

Maps.OpenLayersLayer = SC.View.extend({
content: null,
displayProperties: ["content", "content.order", "content.visible", "content.opacity", "content.cql_filter"],

While it works (it was, I quote, described as funny though) this is the recommended way to do it:

Maps.OpenLayersLayer = SC.View.extend(SC.ContentDisplay, {
content: null,
contentDisplayProperties: ["order", "visible", "opacity", "cql_filter"],

Thanks to jdooley who pointed to the solution.

Indexing Apache access logs with ELK (Elasticsearch+Logstash+Kibana)

Who said that grepping Apache logs has to be boring?

The truth is that, as Enteprise applications move to the browser too, Apache access logs are a gold mine, it does not matter what your role is: developer, support or sysadmin. If you are not mining them you are most likely missing out a ton of information and, probably, making the wrong decisions.
ELK (Elasticsearch, Logstash, Kibana) is a terrific, Open Source stack for visually analyzing Apache (or nginx) logs (but also any other timestamped data).

From 0 to ZFS replication in 5m with syncoid

The ZFS filesystem has many features that once you try them you can never go back. One of the lesser known is probably the support for replicating a zfs filesystem by sending the changes over the network with zfs send/receive.
Technically the filesystem changes don't even need to be sent over a network: you could as well dump them on a removable disk, then receive  from the same removable disk.

RUNDECK job maintenance

Learn more about Rundeck.

Now that I have a fair number of jobs scheduled by Rundeck, how do I periodically prune the job execution history and keep only the last, say, 30 executions for each job?
