  • Taxi prefers Square over regular credit card terminal

    Colin Charles
    28 Oct 2014 | 12:40 am
    As I was getting from the airport to my hotel in Columbus, Ohio, I took a taxi. Upon disembarking, it was time to pay and I noticed a credit card device hanging at the back of the passenger seat (this seems to be more common in the USA these days thankfully).  However, the driver told me not to swipe it there. He’d prefer to use Square as he would save on fees. So he plugged the Square dongle into his phone, swiped my card, I gave him his tip via the app, signed virtually, and the receipt automatically arrived via email. A much better workflow for me (since I don’t have to deal with a…

    30 Sep 2014 | 12:35 pm
    I can’t remember why I was installing Oracle Enterprise Linux 7 on Oracle VirtualBox a while back, but I did notice something interesting. It ships, just like CentOS 7, MariaDB Server 5.5. Presumably, this means that MariaDB is now supported by Oracle, too ;-) [jokes aside, It’s likely because OEL7 is meant to be 100% compatible to RHEL7] The only reason I mention this now is Vadim Tkachenko, probably got his most retweeted tweet recently, stating just that. If you want to upgrade to MariaDB 10, don’t forget that the repository download tool provides CentOS 7 binaries, which should…

    I had quite a good time at LinuxCon North America/CloudOpen North America 2014, alongside my colleague Max Mether – between us, we gave a total of five talks. I noticed that this year there was a database heavy track — Morgan Tocker from Oracle’s MySQL Team had a few talks as did Martin MC Brown from Continuent.  The interest in MariaDB stems from the fact that people are starting to just see it appear in CentOS 7, and its just everywhere (you can even get it from the latest Ubuntu LTS). This makes for giving interesting talks, since many are shipping MariaDB 5.5 as the default…

    Back in August, I wrote about how T-Mobile USA changes their pay-as-you-go plans. It is even worse than it seems. I’m back again this month, and find that if I want to change to the $3/day unlimited calls/text/data plan, I have to wait till the next month (i.e. the next billing cycle). Previously this would just work immediately, as long as I changed it online.  My options to get data now? Pay $10 for a 1-week High Speed Data Pass with up to 1GB of traffic to utilise. There’s also a $5 day pass.  T-Mobile reminds me of my experience with DiGi. Both were underdogs. Once they get more…

    Addison Duvall
    29 Oct 2014 | 3:01 am
    What is a mentor? Plenty of people think it’s some formal, master/apprentice agreement that lasts for a certain number of years, but it doesn’t have to be. A mentor is simply someone with more experience than you, who helps guide you on the right path and steer you away from the most common mistakes young designers make. These can be relationships that last for a short period of months or years – or they can last for a lifetime. The bottom line is, if you’re a professional designer, you will need your own mentor at some point. Let’s explore some of the reasons…

The current structure was built in 1968. Built in the South Indian style, the temple’s 5-tiered gopuram (tower) rises dramatic 23 meters and is decorated with depictions of Hindu gods sculpted by artisans from southern India.

However, not everyone knows how to get the best card that matches their lifestyle. In fact, choosing the best credit card can be an overwhelming task.

  • Middle Class: 10 Years Ago And Now

    Fiona Ho
    28 Oct 2014 | 8:38 pm
    Once upon a time, being middle class draws on the rosy notion of a family with a nice house, who drives a Volvo, goes on beach or skiing vacations once or twice in a year, sends their kids to college, and lives a generally carefree and comfortable life. Unfortunately, as living costs continue to rise and salaries struggle to catch up, the term “middle class” seems to have taken on a new and greyer meaning in recent years. In Malaysia, middle class is loosely defined by those who take home a monthly income of RM3,000 and above. Government data from the year 2012 showed that 27.8% of…
