Hope you are doing well. In the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul things appear to have gone back to normal. As far as I know looting and riots have stopped. There are talks about disbanding the Minneapolis police department. Not sure what liberals are thinking. No matter where you live, social rules and laws have to be enforced so people will follow them. The approach may vary, but force needs to be present. Hopefully it is there just as a deterrent.
Talks about the terrible things happening in many police departments in different liberal cities are being blamed on the current conservative federal government. Please note that in the past 50 years the USA has been under conservative and liberal leaders. If there is blame on what triggered the last wave of looting and riots in several cities in the USA, it needs to be done using established laws. First, the involved police officers should have been put in administrative leave (not fired). Second there should be a trial in which all evidence is presented and discussed. Then the jury should come up with a verdict. If the process is fouled, then the issue should be elevated to the next court. Eventually, if not resolved to the satisfaction of all parties involved, it would reach the Supreme Court. After a decision is made at the highest legal level, people responsible at all levels (i.e., judges, lawyers, union members, politicians, and police officers) should be held accountable and sent to prison if they have done something considered unlawful. Accountability will induce changes which will make groups like “Black Lives Matter” obsolete. Looting and riots do not help the cause of black people. It only aggravates it. Not only that, but the people that lives in the areas that were looted and burned down, now will experience higher prices in stores and shops and will have to travel longer distances to get their shopping done. Thanks looters and rioters! Continue reading “Typing Speed”
In the past few days the temperature in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul has been lower than average. The days have been cloudy and rainy. Today the sun might peak in the afternoon and the temperature will hopefully reach 55 F. On the positive side the forecast for Saturday is sunny and temperatures in the low 70s. Hopefully will be able to grill and spend a few hours outside walking.
In this post I will cover interacting with MongoDB using Node.js via the Mongoose module. I will not say much about Installing MongoDB on Windows or Using the MongoDB Shell due to the fact that I have covered such topics on previous posts. I am using the Windows 10 OS due to the fact that several tools I use to generate the post are installed in this Windows machine. You can follow just as well if you decide to use Linux. The installation instructions provided by MongoDB are well written and are easy to follow. Continue reading “MongoDB for RESTful Service”
It is a partly sunny Sunday in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul. Currently I am waiting for my wife to get ready to go out for a walk. Yesterday it was cloudy and sprinkled on and off all day. Towards the end of the day it cleared up but we were not in the mood to walk given that we were watching movies at home.
Spoke on the phone with my youngest son. He and his wife were driving to Wisconsin from Indiana to check out a few homes today. He got a job in the area and the family is moving in a month or two. Seems like a house that matched their expectations came on the market last week and they are hoping will meet and exceed their expectations. Will find more about it later this afternoon when they drive back home. Continue reading “Node.js in Production”
Yesterday on snail mail I received a pin from the Red Cross. Apparently I have given blood 16 times so far. That adds up to two gallons of blood. Planning on continue to donate in the foreseeable future.
As you can tell based on the code we will be using for this post, I am a fan of Ian Fleming’s spy novels staring James Bond. I read all his books when I was growing up. Have watched all the James Bond movies and own a DVD collection of all the titles that have been released of 007.
It is a rainy and stormy day in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul. All is well with rain, but I do shutdown my computers as soon as we get lightning. Have my computers connected via different power supplies, but on more than one occasion I have lost multiple components. So as soon as I hear thunder, I immediately shutdown and read until the storm subsides.
I worked in 2-hour blocks. At the end of the second block I went up and prepare tea. My wife and I have this morning ritual. What was unique today is that a rafter of wild turkeys was in our backyard. Last Friday the tom had two females and they were stopping traffic on the parkway. Today the rafter has grown to include seven females. There are several large parks and dozens of lakes and ponds in this area. We see turkeys year round.

It is a beautiful Saturday in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul. My wife and I will be going for a 5 mile walk later this morning.
Today I woke up around 04:00 AM. It was somewhat warm at home. Turned off heating and opened a window. Since then the inside temperature had dropped to a more comfortable 68 degrees F.
This morning I read a post titled The Middle Class is being Disrupted by the One Percent by Michael K. Spencer on Medium. The post is quite interesting to me. The reason being is that I have been thinking and discussing with friends and family similar ideas. Something needs to be done by companies and governments before Capitalism and Democracy becomes a chapter in a history book. Continue reading “Bootstrap Jumbotron”
Given that one needs to start with some level of requirements, we will use the following short and simple statement:
“Implement a very simple RESTful API for a storage server that supports store, query, retrieve and delete operations using DICOM data”. Continue reading “Basic RESTful Service – Part I”
A couple days ago the temperature in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul rose up to 70 F. Yesterday the highs were in the upper 50s. Today the temp is going to go as high as 34 F and will be raining and snowing. Not sure how much snow and rain we will be getting. Hopefully things will not flood.
I am working with micro services and Node.js in order to streamline a storage server currently implemented by three monolith services. We will be going the hybrid route for a while. Eventually all will be implemented with Docker and possibly running on a public cloud (i.e., AWS or Azure). Continue reading “Node.js Issue – RESOLVED”
