Imported some old Blogger posts. - 09/04/2016 Public

I added the ability to Yioop software to import forum and blog discussions based on rss or atom feeds. I was trying to migrate all my old Google class discussion from google over to Yioop.com. In the process I remembered I had an old blogger account which I downloaded the data for. It only has a few posts from 2005-2006 but it was interesting to see what I thought would be cool technologies of the future.

Getting rid of unwanted applications in OSX El Capitan. - 09/03/2016 Public

Some programs in OSX can be annoying. For example, I generally don't want Photos.app, iTunes, etc to automatically pop up when I connect something to my machine. I don't like the idea of apps phoning home, etc. I don't like the idea of not being able to uninstall apps I don't want. On OSX EL Capitan there is software System Integrity Protection which makes it hard to uninstall some of the pre-loaded applications from Apple. The actual purpose of SIP is reasonable enough: Prevent people from messing with important OS file systems on your machine. These include folders like:
  • /System
  • /usr
  • /bin
  • /sbin
but it also includes pre-loaded software.
System Integrity Protection can be disabled by:
  1. Booting the machine in recovery mode (Command-R at restart till Apple logo)
  2. Then a terminal type:
     csrutil disable
    
  3. Restart To re-enable it, one can follow the same as the above except changing disable to enable . Once you've disabled it, you can do:
     sudo rm -rf /Applications/Photos.app
    
    etc. to get rid of pre-loaded programs you don't want.
Since SIP is generally a good thing you can then boot back into recovery mode to re-enable it.

Migrating Pollett.org to Yioop Software. - 27/02/2016 Public

I am migrating the Old Pollett.org site to the Yioop Search Engine Software I have written. This will force me to eat my own dog food a bit more. I migrated the one post I had on the Old Pollett.org on OSX Server's wiki system. You can expect future posts here which will probably be geeky in nature and largely related to me figuring out how to configure stuff and then blogging so I will remember what I did.

Setting up default postgres in MAC OSX. - 27/02/2016 Public

First written: April 27, 2014 at 7:55pm
OSX since Lion comes with postgres but it seems a little hard to figure out exactly how to get it running so I thought I'd read a short entry so I could remember how I did it.
(1) Check if postgres is running: sudo serveradmin fullstatus postgres (2) If it is not running you can get it running with the command: sudo serveradmin start postgres (3) Make sure postgres is listening to localhost: cd /Library/Server/PostgreSQL/Config/ sudo nano org.postgresql.postgres.plist change listen_addresses= to listen_addresses=127.0.0.1 save and then type: sudo serveradmin stop postgres sudo serveradmin start postgres (4) Use template1 to create database accounts sudo -u _postgres psql template1 CREATE USER myusername WITH PASSWORD 'mypassword'; CREATE DATABASE mydatabase; GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON mydatabase TO myusername; \q (5) You should now be able to connect to the database from a terminal window using: psql -d mydatabase -u myusername (6) Another thing you may need to do is cd /Library/Server/PostgreSQL/Data you might want to change the default trust settings for connections specified in pg_hba.conf to some other kind of authentication. For example, host all myusername 127.0.0.1/32 password
