An area of technology that has particularly piqued my interest of late is that of 3D printing and how it has the potential to revolutionise so many different industries. This got me thinking and researching to see how the pharmaceutical industry has taken to the notion and to what effect has it been used.

I Prefer to Read - Is there anyone else out there?

Posted by Michael Evans on 26-Jul-2016 15:20:53
I have worked for a company that makes eDetailing software for about 3 months now (iDetailAid) and with this new focus, I have really begun to think about the way that information is presented to
end users.

I have also worked in Sales and Marketing for many years and have long been aware of the received wisdom that if you want to communicate effectively and do well in SEO, then you should use the visual image and preferably video whenever possible.

As an example and to bear this out, a quick search of the web while I am writing this, brings me to an article which tells me that by 2019, 80 percent of all internet traffic will be video. This particular article concludes with these words:
“Consumers like video, use video and remember video. Those are all great components for a successful marketing strategy.”


If I put my consumers hat on however, I am not sure that this applies to me and it has made me wonder if I am alone in questioning these received wisdoms.

I know for example that if I want to catch up on the news that I will rarely opt for the video link, almost always choosing to read the article.

If we look at two separate presentations of the same thing, then I know which one I prefer if only for the fact that when I want to communicate this on to someone else, I will at least know how to articulate it:

How to automate the installation of MySQL 5.6 and above

Posted by Matt Bryson on 14-Apr-2016 13:24:59

With the release of MySQL 5.6, there was no longer a default user account with an empty password. For security reasons the root account is now allocated a random password when MySQL is installed, which is written to a log file.

You then look up the password from the log file, and use it to login and change it to something else...

$ sudo grep 'temporary password' /var/log/mysqld.log 
$ mysqladmin -u root --password=RANDOM_PASSWORD_FROM_LOG password myNewSuperSecretPassword1!

This is all well and good, unless you are automating deployment of MySQL. We use vagrant/ansible to spin up our local dev servers, and as soon as we upgraded MySQL, all our MySQL commands started failing as they could no longer authenticate.

There was no obvious way to install with a predefined password, or no password, so we came up with the following to automate setting up MySQL.
