Early Access: Inserting JSON data to BigQuery from Spark on Dataproc
Hello folks! We recently received a case letting us know that Dataproc 2.1.1 was unable to write to a BigQuery table with a column of type JSON. Although the BigQuery connector for Spark has had support for JSON columns since 0.28.0, the Dataproc images on the 2.1 line still cannot create tables with JSON columns […]
Hello dear readers and attendees, This is the post that I will be/ will have been referencing during my presentation to the Seattle Central Community College’s Byte club on Thursday, December 10th at 1500-1630. I will begin with a bit of an autobio and find out what kind of students we have in attendance. Please […]
MySQL Meet-up 20141208
I had an enjoyable time last night at Twitter with local MySQL DBAs and developers. We had an attendee who has no experience with SQL or programming at all. She is interested in organizing her collection of recipes and had heard a rumor that MySQL was a good tool to use for this task. She […]

Maxine is now running on mariadb
So back when I was working for MySQL AB as support manager for MaxDB, I created an IRC bot to help manage the #maxdb channel on Freenode. We didn’t get a lot of traffic, and Daniel De Graaf mentioned that he could use a bot to help manage some iptables factoids over on #netfilter. So […]

I published an SQLite3 storage back-end to NIST::NVD on the CPAN. It’s pretty quick. About as fast as the DB_File one, but without the down side of being tied to DB_File. It shouldn’t be too difficult to re-factor this code to any DBI-based database. MariaDB anyone? I know it works on Debian. The nightly CPAN […]
The system which was hosting this blog had a tendency to go down every few days. I swapped it out for a spare yesterday. Let’s see if it stays up. The hypervisor hosts this web server, a mysql server and an SKS pool member, all of which are built on top of Squeeze.
