Loadtesting on EC2 – in all cloud++

Recently at work, had a need to rerun some load-testing numbers, but got stick since our internal servers all had builds we were looking at, or weren’t setup, or yada, yada… so we turned to EC2, with overall pretty positive results. Some background – we build a web-based portal application that runs on a lightweight ...

Sakai Tools – Inside/Outside the Box

Some interesting sakai-ux discussion tied in with thoughts I’ve been having recently related to native vs. integrated services and content in portal-type environments… where do the lines get drawn, and how do you handle horizontal services? From a functionality/architecture point of view, the idea of loosly coupled integrations with external services like wikis, or Google ...

Jason’s Employment 2.0

Well the questions are pouring in (mostly due to my tardiness in writing this kind of announcement) and so, without farther ado… ## What Happened? While it still feels a little strange to say it, as of 2 Fridays ago (2/8) I am no longer employed at Rutgers University. Over the last 9 years as ...

The Ed Techie: What Mailbox limits reveal

The Ed Techie: What Mailbox limits reveal: Grainne posted recently about the frustration of continually getting the ‘Your mailbox is over its size limit’ in our OU email accounts. I can’t tell you how annoying this – sometimes I am just trying to send a quick response to someone before I have to dash out ...
