download.oracle.com (doc): WebLogic Scripting Tool

Using the WebLogic Scripting Tool:
"The WebLogic Scripting Tool (WLST) is a command-line scripting interface that system administrators and operators use to monitor and manage WebLogic Server instances and domains. The WLST scripting environment is based on the Java scripting interpreter, Jython. In addition to WebLogic scripting functions, you can use common features of interpreted languages, including local variables, conditional variables, and flow control statements. WebLogic Server developers and administrators can extend the WebLogic scripting language to suit their environmental needs by following the Jython language syntax. See http://www.jython.org."

openSUSE 11.4 – my main computer should finally get it

Just downloading the "full installation" DVD, as that might me useful during the next couple of weeks in Munich, one of those lonely evenings … ;-)

fill up your stock of business cards: sth. important to do, before you start a new project away from home

Munich, I'm almost on my way, do you hear me?!

I will miss
  • the active Ruby / RoR community,
  • the just starting Clojure community,
  • the Android (user) community (that I was about to join),
  • son#2 (I already miss having him around!!!),
  • the S.O. (of course),
  • my home office (with my printers and my scanner) and the pleasureful silent days there,
  • and my own bed.
Alright, I will gain reading and relaxing time in the train (at least on my way back to Berlin), but I have no idea yet, how bad the trips on the train to Munich will get. Deutsche Bahn just announced, the trip Berlin-Munich will take 1 hour longer (until Monday (2011-08-29)), because they will cut trees 30 meters to the left and to the right because of last winter's damages.
Sigh!

I am just noise-SPAM-ming the neighbourhood with his shuvi elai.
It instantly makes me cry, just out of utter emotion.

He is a kibbutznik. Listen to his music on YouTube! Go and buy his music!
Friends can of course have a "look" at my collection of his music, but he really deserves getting supported.

shuvi elai now runs on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, and that may just turn out to be a loop.
Here are the lyrics for shuvi elai.

Maybe amongst many other important reasons I love his music, because I love the bass a lot. I really miss playing my Rickenbacker (4001).

catching up with my accounting before opening my paper mailbox

Last time I opened it was like 5 weeks ago. I wonder, why the incoming letters still fit in.

Google Mail: from forwarding to active polling

I really liked their feature, that I can forward the incoming e-mail to my Google Mail account (and the Google Mail / Google Apps one as well) to my main e-mail account.
But they poke the "Return-Path:" mail header field then, and that makes it unreasonable for use with procmail.
So for the time being I switched them from forwarding to getting polled by fetchmail with SMTP-ing to my standard account.
The new problem to face then: My mobile phone Internet Access does not allow me to do IMAP and SMTP, and most corporate networks just as well. So maybe I let my own server in my home office do this. The downside of that: sometimes messages do not get successfully sent out, and I will never notice them, if that occurs on my (home office) server. In my experience that only occurs to messages with weird sender addresses and so forth – but you never really know that.
Well, we shall see! More valuable experiences to make.

changing the User-Agent string for Android's web browser

Of course there are web-sites, that take into account, whether we visit them as Android or as Desktop or as iPhone or as iPad.
BTW: they all (but WTF is "Desktop") use the webkit rendering engine. Isn't that sort of funny? Firefox's rendering engine is different though.

So where do we change that setting?
Enter about:debug into the location bar. That opens ("Go") a few more entries within the browser's menu and its Settings submenu, one of them is Debug, there you find UAString. E.g. Desktop will allow you to start mail.google.com as within a normal browser, i.e. including the Contacts, whereas Android gives you a leaner version of mail.google.com.

nXML mode : use describe-mode within emacs

That's the nicest and briefest description, that I know.
What a pity, that I haven't been able to find it online so far.

But here it is:


nXML mode:
Major mode for editing XML.

Syntax highlighting is performed unless the variable `nxml-syntax-highlight-flag' is nil.

C-c C-f finishes the current element by inserting an end-tag.
C-c C-i closes a start-tag with `>' and then inserts a balancing end-tag leaving point between the start-tag and end-tag.
C-c C-b is similar but for block rather than inline elements: the start-tag, point, and end-tag are all left on separate lines.
If `nxml-slash-auto-complete-flag' is non-nil, then inserting a `

<C-return> performs completion on the symbol preceding point.

C-c C-d uses the contents of the current buffer to choose a tag to put around the word preceding point.

Sections of the document can be displayed in outline form.  The variable `nxml-section-element-name-regexp' controls when an element is recognized as a section.  The same key sequences that change visibility in outline mode are used except that they start with C-c C-o instead of C-c.

Validation is provided by the related minor-mode `rng-validate-mode'. This also makes completion schema- and context- sensitive.  Element names, attribute names, attribute values and namespace URIs can all be
completed. By default, `rng-validate-mode' is automatically enabled by `rng-nxml-mode-init' which is normally added to `nxml-mode-hook'. You can toggle it using C-c C-v.

TAB indents the current line appropriately. This can be customized using the variable `nxml-child-indent' and the variable `nxml-attribute-indent'.

C-c C-u inserts a character reference using the character's name (by default, the Unicode name). C-u C-c C-u inserts the character directly.

The Emacs commands that normally operate on balanced expressions will operate on XML markup items.  Thus C-M-f will move forward across one markup item; C-M-b will move backward across one markup item; C-M-k will kill the following markup item; C-M-@ will mark the following markup item.  By default, each tag each treated as a single markup item; to make the complete element be treated as a single markup item, set the variable `nxml-sexp-element-flag' to t.  For more details, see the function `nxml-forward-balanced-item'.

C-M-u and C-M-d move up and down the element structure.

Many aspects this mode can be customized using M-x customize-group nxml RET.

That's the leanest way to have that list on the screen. They must have introduced that with some 5.x release.

a WinXP guest of a VirtualBox installation on Mac OS X Lion: problems with time synchronization

How to install VirtualBox Guest Additions - Tutorial

I guess (just like any user of a Processing Virtualization solution) I experienced problems with time synchronization within my guest OS. I searched the web for that, and I came across the above article. In the VirtualBox context "Guest Additions" is the term. I wasn't able to find the right hints on VirtualBox.org, but the above article pointed me to "Devices > Install Guest Additions" within the menu of the guest VM app. That brought a superb quality improvement, including the resizability of the guest VM app window. I really love that.

Glossary
80/20 rule A theory invented by Vilfredo Pareto in the late 1800s, also known as the Pareto principle, that describes the percentage imbalance between input and output. The Pareto principle is not a law of science; rather, it is a rule of thumb that can apply to many aspects of life. One of the most common business examples is when 80 percent of a company’s revenue comes from 20 percent of its customers.
actionability A criterion used to grade the importance of a BI opportunity area based on its prospects of empowering people to take action in an organization. Actionability ratings are high, medium, and low.
ad hoc analysis The impromptu and flexible examination of data without predefined or fixed formats. Ad hoc analysis gives users the ability to ask and get answers to an infinite variety of questions quickly.

data mining An automated process that uses a variety of analysis tools and statistical techniques to reveal actionable patterns and relationships in large, complex data sets.
data mart A collection of data that is structured in a way to facilitate analysis. Data marts support the study of a single subject area, with all relevant data from all operational applications brought together into that data mart. Data marts may be of the relational (RDBMS) variety or the OLAP variety depending on the type of analysis to be performed.
data warehouse A repository for data. Many experts define the data warehouse as a centralized data store that feeds data into a series of subject-specific data stores—called data marts. Others accept a broader definition of the data warehouse as a collection of integrated data marts.

extract, transform, and load (ETL) processes Processes that are responsible for transporting and integrating data from one or more source systems into one or more destination systems.
front-end tool A category of software that harvests the data stored in a data warehouse and presents the data to users in the form of reports and interactive reviews.
functional area A department of a business unit that is focused on a specific function.
hierarchy The organization of levels within a dimension that (1) reflects how data is aggregated from detailed levels to summarized levels and
(2) serves as the drill-down path for top-down business analysis.
HOLAP See hybrid online analytical processing (HOLAP).
hybrid online analytical processing (HOLAP) An OLAP tool that can store data in both multidimensional databases and relational databases.
information consumer A community of business users that requires the ability to dynamically query the database via a “guided” user experience that allows drill down and pivoting when desired, while eliminating options that may create undesirable results.

measure A numeric value that is of interest to business analysis.
member An item in a dimension that represents one or more occurrences of data.
mental model A collection of everything that we think we know about how something works (in this case our business). This labeling of our understanding applies to not only people but also organizations. Some people refer to the company’s mental model as “tribal wisdom.”
metadata Information about the properties of data, such as business logic that describes the structure and content of dimensions and measures.
metric A measure that guides businesses in making decisions that affect particular business units as well as the company at large. Metric is used interchangeably with key performance indicator.
MOLAP See multidimensional online analytical processing (MOLAP).
multidimensional analysis A way of analyzing data in a top-down fashion by examining measures simultaneously broken out by multiple dimensions.
multidimensional online analytical processing (MOLAP) An OLAP storage mode in which data is placed into special structures that are stored on a central server(s).
OLAP See online analytical processing (OLAP).
OLE DB An application programming interface (API) for accessing data. OLE DB supports accessing data stored in any format (databases, spreadsheets, text files, and so on) for which an OLE DB provider is available.
OLE DB for OLAP Formerly the separate specification that addressed OLAP extensions to OLE DB. Beginning with OLE DB 2.0, OLAP extensions are incorporated into the OLE DB specification.
OLTP See online transaction processing (OLTP).
online analytical processing (OLAP) Multidimensional analysis that is supported by interface tools and database structures that allow instantaneous access and easy user manipulation. Online analytical processing got its name because this name contrasts well with OLTP, a term that was already in widespread use when the term OLAP was created. There are fundamental differences between transaction processing and analytical processing. OLAP systems support multidimensional analysis at the speed of thought. OLAP typically follows the client/server paradigm, where an OLAP database server is accessed by many users who use multidimensional client tools to analyze data.
online transaction processing (OLTP) A data processing system designed to record all the business transactions of an organization as they occur. OLTP systems are structured for the purposes of running the day-to-day raw data of business, which requires efficiency and minute processing of transactions at the lowest level of detail. An OLTP system processes a transaction, performs all the elements of the transaction in real time, and processes many transactions on a continuous basis. OLTP systems usually offer little or no analytical capabilities.
open database connectivity (ODBC) A data access application programming interface (API) that supports access to any data source for
which an ODBC driver is available. ODBC is aligned with the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standards for a database call level interface (CLI).

operational database A database that supports the day-to-day operations of an organization. Operational databases host the systems that organizations use to run their business day to day. Most operational databases are OLTP systems and store the data in a relational database management system.
opportunity area In BI technical terms, the logical grouping of measure requirements, where data can be obtained consistently across all the dimensions at the same lowest level of detail. In business terms, similar to a project where a consistent set of requirements for a group of users can be accommodated more or less from the same end-to-end system structures or solution.
parent A member that is directly above another member in a hierarchy.
pilot project A short-term BI project that tests the feasibility of pursuing a specific opportunity area.
pivot and nest Point-and-click manipulations that facilitate multidimensional analysis. Pivoting means rotating rows to columns, and columns to rows, in a cross-tabular data browser. Nesting is layering multiple dimensions on the rows or columns of a browser.
power analyst A community of business users that requires the full analytical power of the data mart. These users are willing to learn the details of database design and the query tool in order to obtain the necessary results.
predictive data mining Data mining that produces a model for use with new data to forecast a value or predict a probable outcome based on patterns discovered in historical data.
proof-of-concept project A BI project that evaluates and selects technologies that can be used to host a data mart.
ragged hierarchy A hierarchy that has an inconsistent number of drill-down levels.
ratio A measure where the result is calculated specifically from dividing one measure by another.
RDBMS See relational database management system (RDBMS).
refresh rate The frequency by which data is updated. Typically the refresh rate corresponds to the lowest level of detail of a time dimension required for a group of measures.
relational database management system (RDBMS) A set of programs that allows users to create, update, and administer data that is stored in a database of related tables.
relational online analytical processing (ROLAP) An OLAP storage mode where data is stored in relational databases.
ROLAP See relational online analytical processing (ROLAP).
roll-up The hierarchical aggregations of data typical in multidimensional structures.
segmentation A data mining technique that analyzes data to discover mutually exclusive collections of records that share similar attribute sets. A segmentation algorithm can use unsupervised learning techniques such as clustering or supervised learning for a specific prediction field.
semiadditive aggregation A method of summarizing data from its lowest level of detail to its highest level of detail in which measures are not aggregated uniformly across all dimensions.
sibling A member that is at the same level as one or more other members sharing the same parent.
slice and dice Two complementary methods for interacting with data. Slicing means isolating a specific member of a dimension for analysis. Dicing means breaking a data set into smaller pieces by examining how measures intersect with multiple dimensions.
slowly changing dimension A term that describes how dimensions reflect data changes over time.
SQL See structured query language (SQL).
structured query language (SQL; pronounced sequel) An industry standard language for accessing data (also called querying) in a relational database management system (RDBMS).
uniform aggregation A method of summarizing data from its lowest level of detail to its highest level of detail, where data can be aggregated the same way across all dimensions.
visualization A graphical representation of data that sometimes reveals patterns that are more apparent to the human eye.
write back The ability for users to update data in an underlying data mart.
zero client footprint A tool that does not require software to be installed on a business user’s desktop, thus making the client application easier to deploy to more users.

MacBook Pro: successfully upgrading memory [update]

MacBook Pro: How to remove or install memory

Mine is a "MacBook Pro (17-inch, Mid 2009)"

The compatibility list said, I should add "PC3 -8500 DDR3 1066 MHz type RAM", but that wasn't available at my dealer (Saturn Berlin Europa-Center), so instead I installed "2*4 GB 1333 MHz DDR3" (), and that boots nice and still works very nice.

My "About This Mac > Memory" now says:
Your Mac contains 2 memory slots, each of which accepts a 1333 MHz DDR3 memory module.
Funny, isn't it?!!

The 2 new memory bars cost me EUR 100 at Saturn Berlin Europa-Center, not like EUR 140 as at Gravis. Not all screws went in as nice, as they were before this procedure. Otherwise this was really, really easy.

Now I run VirtualBox with WinXP inside (Quicken running inside there), and it feels like walking on air, not like on stones.

Mac OS X Lion: from now on the printer they suggest to you is "Last Printer Used"

"Last Printer Used" – that's quite a convenient suggestion and choice IMO.
If you don't like that, you can of course choose your favourite standard printer.

Actually they could have offered that ages ago. It feels like that was a standard long time ago, and it just got re-invented. Somehow a PITA.
