Learning MCollective is now available in Early Release.

This has pretty much every chapter and subchapter we expect to have in the final book, but my editor and I are still polishing some rough edges. As O’Reilly says on their website:

You’ll receive updates when content is added, as well as the completed ebooks. You get free lifetime access, multiple file formats, and free updates.

A couple months ago, KFP made a really cool Duplo creation he called "The Cleaning Robot." I cobbled together still photos and video of that creation to enter the Duplo video contest. If he's one of the top three vote getters this week, he will win 5 Duplo sets, or about $150 worth. And cooler still, if you click on the link below and "like" his video, you can opt into entering for a chance to win some Duplo gear yourself. If you don't have little ones, it makes a terrific gift.

Here's the link: http://www.duploplay.com/1/mypage/131

The votes are tallied for the entire week, ending Sunday, so try to vote tonight. He's really close to the top and only about 10 or 15 more votes can put him comfortably in third place.

Please boost the signal!

There are some significant scaling issues with ActiveMQ 5.8 and MCollective, especially around SSL connections. I’ve been working with some clients and solved many of these problems by using ActiveMQ 5.9.1 as the middleware.

I’ve created an RPM for Active 5.9.1 on RHEL/CentOS that matches the one published on the Puppet Labs EL6 dependencies repository, with the following changes:

Нигде дух классических космоопер и "Звездных войн" не сохранился, кроме, видимо, Японии. У Синдзи Арамаки получилась космоопера что надо. При этом фильм провалился в Японии и не окупился с учетом мирового проката (при бюджете в 30 миллионов) - и вот этого я решительно не понимаю. Зритель, видимо, не тот. Окей - я тот зритель, что бы это ни значило.

At Eastercon, having a good time in spite of migraine and lack of migraine tablets (now rectified). Got to see a lot of friends, although haven't caught up with everyone. Been to several good panels, in some of which I was that annoying person typing away on the iPad (partly because of the migraine - typing notes was the only way I'd remember a word of it two hours later). There will be at least a partial con report at some point, because I wrote up much of Friday the same night.

I've been a lot more mobile than last year, when I skipped Eastercon altogether because I knew I would be too tired and sore to enjoy it. For the future - I have signed up for full membership of the now-seated 2015 bid, @Dysprosiumcon although not sure yet if I'll be able to make it. Jacey has convinced me to at least consider Milford when I finish the urban fantasy, as I'd like to workshop it through the sf side even if I submit it to a romance publisher. I've not signed up for Novacon, because I probably won't have the time/energy after Worldcon, but maybe this will be the year I finally go...

If you're here and still haven't seen me, come and say hello sometime. I'm here until tomorrow afternoon.

The biggest problem with this movie is that it's just too long. A ninety minute plot is stretched out to two hours fifteen, mostly by unnecessarily extended action scenes.

Underneath all that there's an excellent story about loyalty and betrayal. Captain America (Chris Evans) has been working for Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and SHIELD since his defrosting at the end of the first movie, and he has some serious moral questions about what SHIELD is doing in the world. Fury and he have a bit of a confrontation over this, and then Fury is attacked on the streets of Washington by a number of fake District Metro cops. Meanwhile, Cap has been brooding. Coming home to his apartment, he finds a badly wounded Nick Fury, who is quickly shot by a mysterious assassin whom Cap cannot catch, and declared dead in hospital.

That assassin is the mysterious Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), a Soviet-era assassin who will soon come after Cap and the Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and who has a secret past not even he knows.

Robert Redford plays a Secretary - of what is never made clear - who is part of the "Council" that oversees SHIELD. He quickly turns out to be a Hydra agent. Yes, Hydra, which Cap supposedly dismantled back in WWII, is still active, and soon Captain America is in a mirror game where he doesn't know whom to trust.

The conflict between the idealistic WWII hero and the dirty modern spy agency is the core of this film's drama, and it is real drama. It is resolved, perhaps, a bit too simply, but satisfyingly nonetheless, and things are set up nicely for a third movie.

But first (of course) will come Avengers 2.

That’s a bit of a misleading post title, I’m afraid… I’m not going to comment at length because it’s a bit churlish to comment on a ballot one is part of, and also because my brains are fried (thanks to the snakelet, whom I think is secretly a zombie–has uncontrolled gestures, drools all the time, eats Mom’s brains, what more evidence do you need?). But, more seriously–broadly, I agree with John Scalzi on the matter: you may or may not agree with the particular people on the ballot, but insofar as I know everyone has full rights to be there.
(as John points out, it doesn’t mean everyone gets automatic first place votes, or even votes above No Award).

Also, whatever your thoughts on the ballot, please read and vote? The Hugos won’t be a huge inclusive award unless there are lots of voters reflecting all walks of fandom, and this year is already on track to have a record number of voters–which is great. FYI, if you’re not attending Worlcon it’s not too late for a supporting membership, which nets you the voter’s packet–lots of good fiction–and voting rights. Remember it’s an Australian system, i.e. ranking by preference, which, by cushioning much of the effect of a splitting of votes, allows you to express several preferences, though it’s not a panacea.
