Here’s a simple example of calling the vSphere REST API using curl. These commands first authenticate to the API which creates a vmware-api-session-id cookie which is stored to cookie-jar.txt then makes a request to get a list of VMs:
curl -k -i -u <username>@<vcenter>:<pwd> -X POST -c cookie-jar.txt https://sc-rdops-vm12-dhcp-118-200/rest/com/vmware/cis/session curl -k -i -b cookie-jar.txt https://<vcenter>/rest/vcenter/vm
NOTE: Use with caution as your credentials will likely be caught in your command line history!

For some reason React Native truncates fatal error message to 75 chars which is a bit of a bummer when you’re looking at a Crashlytics report like this:
“Unhandled JS Exception: undefined is not an object (evaluating ‘this.props….”

A friend and former collegue, John Waters has recently started a new venture I thought would be of interest to people who read my blog considering he’s one of the best I’ve had the pleasure of working with. I met John while at Falafel Software and his new company is CTO4Hire. John’s extremely knowledgable and has experience working on a wide range of technologies across a broad spectrum of businesses. I believe his skills and business acument make him uniquely qualified to offer the type of services provided by CTO4Hire (from his website):
CTO4Hire provides C-level business executives with on demand access to a highly qualified and experienced CTO, assisting you and your team on a per project basis, or on a retainer, with projects ranging from systems integration, evaluation of technology, vendors or employee assessments, software architecture and systems design, due diligence of planned ventures, and leadership of teams in startups or established enterprises.
You can contact John here. Having recently started a CTO position myself I’m particularly interested in following CTO4Hire.
I have a Nikon D70 and one day I found the flash card sticking out and discovered some little hands had been playing around with it. The issue was one of the pins was bent to the point where I couldn’t insert the card. Using a small screwdriver I was able to realign the pin and insert a card however the camera fails to recognize the card and just displays “-E-” where the image count normally would appear.
I’m curious, is this worth trying to fix? Anyone have a repair place they would recommend?
Note to self. I’ve been playing around with Factual Data and thinking about some product ideas. I grabbed a product I use and wanted to see if I could create the right bar code for it. Turns out it’s pretty easy.

Shortly after MerchantCircle was acquired by Reply.com a site redesign effort was launched and I was asked to lead the effort from the development side. At the time, I’d been working as the sole developer on bloglines.com so for me this was an interesting challenge not to mention a fairly sizable gear shift. The site is built with a Python templating engine called Cheetah and consists of just over 2000 template files, in other words it’s big. It would be fair to say there was a good deal of skepticism about launching such a large undertaking and it took me a few weeks wrestling with a few approaches before I settled on a pattern I felt comfortable with. On bloglines I’d heavily leveraged Cheetah’s support for visual inheritance, something not used in the original MerchantCircle codebase though it’s the cornerstone of the redesign.
Below is the old MerchantCircle listing page (right) and the new redesign as you can see there are significant differences which are far more than skin deep.
Our credit card company called yesterday and said a 3rd party database was compromised. They canceled our cards and reissued. I forgot and swiped my card at the grocery store doh! Then couldn’t download something from the AppStore and couldn’t stream a movie from Amazon and now I’m awaiting a slew of bill pay failures.
Ah the conveniences of the modern world! It’ll be nice when this is over.
I’m beginning to wonder if my blog has become a casualty of a Google Panda update. Looking at Analytics my traffic is down 40% over the last month yet I’ve only posted a handful of times. That’s a pretty dramatic drop when nothing else on the site has materially changed. As I search on Google for post that I’ve written which have driven traffic to this blog they’re nowhere to be found.
Then again, perhaps I’m just getting punished for my Leaving Andriod post. (but seriously, that post was on Oct 20th)
Update Jan 16, 2012: Down traffic continues to the point where my traffic is 1/3 of what it was a year ago.
