Reason why it is great to be a geek!

You must have read many articles saying how bad a geek is in a relationship: He loves the computers more than everything. Nothing else matters once he gets stuck with a few (hundred?) lines of code. It's very high chance that he shows up in front of your home just in time for a dinner with your parent (with untidy clothes and messy hairstyle). And so on... Well, it sounds really scary, isn't it?

And then you can read other articles also, saying how great a geek in a relationship, specifically in bed (oops). I don't have references for the first type of articles but with this one, I have plenty of them, go check it yourself:

  1. Why geeks make the best lovers
  2. 7 reasons to date a geek
  3. 10 reasons you should marry a geek (wow!)
  4. and so on...
Hell yeah, everything has advantages and disadvantages. If you want to take something, you have to accept both the positive and the negative things. The problem is you have to decide if it's worth to take the risk. Right?

To me, it's so great to be a geek (or at least, I claim myself one). Why? Because Sylvie Truong has just posted a blog entry in her My Opera blog. It showed her interest in geeks, pretty much! That's more than enough for me. A really good reason, isn't it?

IMAP module for PHP in Mac OS X Mountain Lion

So here it comes again. I have recently upgraded to Mountain Lion and for whatever reason, Apple decided to nuked all my previous PHP (among other things) configurations so I have to setup IMAP in PHP again.

Step 2: Compile IMAP Get the IMAP source code from University of Washington website . Please do me a favor and check that website for the latest version, it's good practice. If you that laz y , try to click the "y" to get direct link to 2007f version. Extract the package and open the Terminal to the new directory before executing these command: make osx EXTRACFLAG

Flutter: Fixing Firebase header not found with Notification Service Extension

If you follow the FCM tutorial Send an image in the notification payload and encountered this error message: 'FirebaseMessaging/FirebaseMessaging.h' file not found You are on the right place, I'm going to show you how to fix it. My app was working fine but one day it stopped compiling. Apparently Flutter 1.20 changed the way it uses CocoaPod so the service extension no longer has the proper library configured. After some tinkering, I came up with this pod config, it has to be added to ios/Podfile below the main Runner target. target 'FcmImage' do use_frameworks! use_modular_headers! require File.expand_path('../.symlinks/plugins/firebase_core/ios/firebase_sdk_version.rb', __FILE__) firebase_sdk_version = firebase_sdk_version! pod 'Firebase/Messaging', "~> #{firebase_sdk_version}" end FcmImage is my extension name, replace it with yours We can use a hardcoded version for Firebase/Messaging pod but doing so m

A faster Docker for Mac experience

Docker for Mac is freaking slow, this is known issue for years. I'm switching to docker-machine running within Parallels for now... Image from unsplash.com Install the tools I use brew to quickly install these: brew install docker-machine brew install docker-machine-parallels Create the virtual machine The --driver param and vm name is required. The others are all optional, the default values are quite low so I bumped the specs a bit. docker-machine create --driver=parallels \   --parallels-cpu-count=2 \   --parallels-disk-size=100000 \   --parallels-memory=4096 \   parallels Usage Set up the shell environment: eval $(docker-machine env parallels) Then use the cli as normal: docker ls docker-compose up -d To get the vm IP address: docker-machine ip parallels
