You have to change the Context path for each app to be in a different directory.

That is one option, which is listed on atlassian.com

If you don’t set this option, you may be logged out of one Atlassian product when you go to log into the other.

Spaces, where are you?

I took me long enough to figure out how to do this, but MacLife on has it all spelled out.

Goodbye old friend

Last night I put a HP 5MP printer on my curb.

My town now has curb-side e-cycling pickup service, which means not having to drive down to some parking field and waiting on a really long line to get rid of some old computer stuff…

When I looked at that printer, it reminded me of when I was younger. The things I did with my friends and the memories of that time came back to me… looking at that printer I felt a little sad.

I got that printer for someone a long time ago, who has since passed. Putting this printer on the curb felt like that memory was going too.

A moment of reflection


Posted by Jaime | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on 13-12-2010


A while ago I joined the facebook network. When I started to fill the part about me in the profile section, it reminded me of something that started out a while ago.

Finding Programming Zen

A while ago, I worked for the marketing and research company, NPD. While I was there, I met some interesting people, but like most of the jobs that I had worked at in the past, it was the usual job that paid the bills. Not something that was too particularly fulfilling from a programmers standpoint.

It was at some point that I thought to myself, where will I be in ten years. Will I have spent my time doing something that makes me happy?

I can’t say that my life is the usual. Nor can I say that there aren’t people out there who haven’t experienced the same things that I have. For those who have gone through the same, I tip my hat to you. It’s hard taking a moment to really look around and see if what you are doing is what makes you happy. So many times, we do the things we do to put food on the table, have money to pay the bills, and have just enough time to spend with the family.

Taking the time to stop, look and understand yourself can be the paramount moment of your life. In my life, there have been several occasions where this has happened. Where I stop and think about my life and make a discovery that totally shakes my foundation.

Sometimes, these discoveries can give me resolve. Sometimes, they scare me. But the best ones are the ones that make me feel calmer.

One of these moments is when I realized that I wasn’t true to myself. That I had to take a moment and see if what I did, was what I wanted to be doing in 10, 20, 30 years from now. Job security is great, but doing something you love is even better.

At that moment, I set out to fulfill that goal: to find programming zen. On my path towards finding zen, I found my job at Nikon.

KVM, MacOSX and Windows

I’ve been using a KVM to switch between my two workstations, but occasionally, Windows Vista kills one or both of my monitors.

I have two workstations at my office and I thought it would be nice to use one monitor, one keyboard and one mouse to switch between my two powerhouse computers: a Xeon 16-core MacPro and another 16-core Xeon HP Z800 computer.

Many months, and hours, have gone by using this contraption and I can say that I don’t think I would do this again unless I really had to.

The problem, which I found out seems to be a Windows issue, is that as soon as the computer locks out the user, it attempts to re-query for the monitor and if you happen to be on the other workstation, which is what usually happens if you have the security settings turned on, then the PC gets all freaked out.

You select the PC on the KVM and viola! … the PC is no longer viewable. When this happens to me, I have to use Remote Desktop to log into the PC and reboot it.

After a couple incidents, I learned quickly, not to have the computer lock me out while I am not logged in. It’s okay though to lock the computer or log out while you have the PC selected, just don’t do it while you are on the other computer.

There were a couple of posts on the Microsoft support site, stating that you need an Active KVM and not a passive one, which is what I have, but for my setup, no one makes an Active KVM that supports dual DVI (MS Support Site Thread).

My Mac on the other hand doesn’t seem to be suffering the same problem the PC has. Hopefully, Microsoft will fix this.

Cleaning house


Posted by Jaime | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on 26-06-2010

Today I am actually taking time to clean the house. And with that, I traded in my Xbox 360 games.

I finally bought myself a PS3 and I … Love … It!

The only games I have left for the Xbox is Halo and Gears of War. The only reason why I haven’t sold off the beige game console is because of GOW.

Now that I have the PS3… which has been a couple of weeks now, I haven’t turned on the Xbox.

It’s all in the scene

This amateur photographer does great work with his Nikon D40. Looking over his shots you can tell that he definitely has a knack for taking great shots.

This is one hell of a rifle and it would be perfect if it had a Nikon Monarch X rifle scope mounted on it 🙂
