How I built a monitor for RabbitMQ

When you are going to monitor your engine, you probably try first to find some tool that can do it. Very likely, of course, that tool should be able to handle monitoring online and to notify you when the health of your engine is starting to go bad. There are already several well-known and widespread online monitoring tools available for many systems. Super! But what if I try to find a suitable tool for my specific application and… ohh, failure – I cannot find what I need. Unfortunately, it’s also very likely that no one can even suggest a suitable tool. What can I do in such a situation? Probably try to do it myself. Who can help me? You’ve probably already guessed that I am talking about Monitis.  You may ask “why Monitis?”  Because Monitis suggests Monitis Open API, and that gives you a chance to build any monitoring tool yourself. In line with Monitis slang, such... (more)

Anthony Soave Builds Success by Understanding Value and Potential

Anthony Soave uses his innate ability to spot potential and value in people, equipment, and companies others might disregard. Soave Enterprises is led by an experienced and professional executive team who share a common goal of getting the job done right and following a united path towards success.  For Anthony Soave, his team is his right hand, providing the support, guidance, and insight necessary to continue to build success in this modern era.  However, ever since his beginnings, Soave has set a standard for pushing the envelope.  With a lot of hard work and little good fortune, Soave has consistently found success in his diverse business dealings.  Instead of proceeding with the usual horse-before-the-cart business plan, Soave often jumps in headfirst and works out the details later.  It is this intelligent ability to take a risk that has really catapulted Soa...

Embracing Conflict to Fuel Digital Innovation | @ThingsExpo #DX #IoT #M2M #BigData

When talking to clients about their business goals, most business executives are pretty clear as to what they want to accomplish, such as reducing customer churn or reducing inventory costs or improving quality of care or improving product line profitability. But these “one dimensional” business initiatives really don’t push the organization’s innovative thinking. For example, I can easily reduce marketing costs if I significantly reduce advertising and promotional spending. Or I can easily improve product line profitability by cutting all marketing and advertising spending and laying off anyone not directly related to manufacturing and sell products. Where organizations need to get innovative is when the business initiative has more than one dimension or condition, for example: Reduce customer churn while reducing customer service costs, or Reduce inventory costs w...

Saint Arnold Brewing Company to Celebrate 15th Anniversary

HOUSTON, June 2, 2009 – Hundreds of enthusiastic craft beer fans will converge on Saint Arnold Brewing Co. (www.saintarnold.com) this weekend to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the delivery of its first keg of beer. At 15, Saint Arnold Brewing holds the title of the oldest craft brewery in Texas at a time when the popularity of craft beer is surging and going mainstream. “When we started in 1994, there was a wave of craft brewery openings.  Unfortunately, most did not succeed.  Only a handful of us are still around, and we are the oldest,” said Brock Wagner, founder and brewer of Saint Arnold Brewing. “I attribute our success to our focus on quality brewing.  We never wavered, even during the tough times, and we kept working hard.  It took a long time, but we stuck to our strategy and cultivated a community of customers across Texas who appreciate good, full-flavor...

Craig Balding: The Belgian Beer Lovers Guide to Cloud Security

This slide presentation by Craig Balding is informative not only about Cloud security but about Belgian beer also. And I have to tip my hat to anyone who can do a full beer-themed presentation about Cloud security and not make a corny joke about "cloudy" beer. The slides are here: http://cloudsecurity.org/2009/09/21/slides-from-my-brucon-talk-the-belgian-beer-lovers-guide-to-cloud-security/ ... (more)

The Strangest Board Games of 2009

+6 Bag O'Munchkin Babes Following Steve Jackson's other release +6 Bag O'Munchkins. Aside from the weirdness of using these in a game of Munchkin - you can put one in front of you in order to gain a benefit during the game - SJ added a whole level of weirdness to them by allowing you to use the pieces in any other game. For instance, you can whip out a munchkin babe to add or subtract from your die roll once in some other roll and move game. This is so cool, that I hope the concept spreads (and I'll be stealing the idea for my next game at BGG.con, so look in your goodie bags). Aargh!Tech Architecture in the stone age. One player is the architect who sees a card with blocks in a certain order. The other is the builder who doesn't see the card. The architect has to communicate to the builder using grunts in and moves to tell the builder which blocks to pick up, rotate, and... (more)

SixPackToGo.org Brings Pennsylvania Beer Fight to the Masses Thanks to Third Wave Digital

Macon, GA, April 01, 2010 --(PR.com)-- For beer drinkers in the state of Pennsylvania, buying beer from the local convenience store is anything but convenient. In the same state where the founding fathers planned American’s steps to freedom, legislation governing the sale of beer by select retailers has recently come under fire. Now, the push to expand the locations where beer can be purchased has gone from a grassroots effort to a full fledged viral battle – thanks in part to Georgia web development firm, Third Wave Digital. As a full service creative agency, Third Wave Digital has successfully created multi-level Internet marketing campaigns using cutting edge communication technology. Best known for their award-winning website development work, Third Wave Digital has been the go-to web development firm for businesses, educational intuitions and non-pr... (more)

SSP Failure to Cloud Storage Success

Storability 10 year Reunion Years ago, a few buddies and I started one of the first cloud storage providers. Of course, we didn’t call it cloud storage back then, but we merry band of brithers (and sisters), we first generation Storage Service Providers (1gSSPs) were cloud storage way before the cloud was cool. All the 1gSSPs – StorageNetworks, ScaleEight, StorageWay, Sanrise, and others – failed. The core problem was and still is that renting raw capacity over the network is a lousy business model. 1gSSPs couldn’t sustainably buy their storage cheaper than their retail customers (although over a beer I can share some great stories of how the early 1gSSP robber-barron’s ‘negotiated’ with the storage vendors during the boom). SSPs couldn’t sustainably offer broad enough management efficiencies to generate profits. SSPs couldn’t overcome a host of logistic and cultural... (more)
