As someone who works with wordpress; Uhuru is something else.

I was contacted to test the cloud application software platform system, known as http://www.uhurucloud.com. Of course, I was expecting some variant of cpanel’s Application cloud developer, but was surprised when I ran into something that appears simple, yet befuddling. I started to realize that the logon home has no words for guidance; they neither must nor realize that I am completely inept in terms of being able to comprehend the difference between “cloud” and “invisible”. Regardless, after about 15 minutes; I could finally deduce where the + cloud application hidden gem was in the center of the screen, under the “apps” tab.

Uhuru's logon home

Uhuru doesn’t force you to be a programmer to make your own applications (although that option is available!), but they also include many sought after scripts for development such as jooma and wordpress installations. Just enter the URI you want to attach your application to and wait 30 seconds. There will be a brief popup explaining that the app is being compiled and delivered to customized output on the web. Alternatively, you can downlaod the compiled template for your own customization later. The uhuru user panel includes a Visual Studio plugin so anyone who wants to tweak the existing scrips can easily manage them as long as they know a little bit about Microsoft’s Visual Studio. Oh, and yes, tweakng the scripts will not get you in trouble, Uhuru has assured that all user application scripts are completely open source, so don’t worry about violating some Cisco subsidiary’s patent. Anyway, that was about 30 seconds, let’s see how it works once the web interface installs and compiles the script ready for live viewing: It may seem difficult, but hand tight, the application is not as frustrating as the wait would have it seem. Voila, this was my result:

The Web Interface’s showing options after compiling WordPress

So the options here completely left me scratching my head at first. What on Earth am I supposed to do about the “App instances” and “memory provisioned”. Well, then it hit me. One of the best features about this app is that the WordPress installation is completely offloaded your server instead utilizing the Uhuru team’s cloud server, saving big cash on traffic cost. The multiple instances allows a user to implement word press installations on multiple domains in the blink of an eye; and the memory provisioned is that balance of server offloading from the traffic incoming (I believe). So what am I going to do now? Well, I have to see what those other buttons do. First off; command line prompt. No thank you; my Ubuntu shell is as much talking to a machine for one day. I instead moved my eye to the “AppCloud Admin”; which after launching from the user panel (Must have Net 2.5) is probably the most useful tool for any webmaster ever. This thing has everything: once you lock it into your Open ID account (what you need to have an account at Uhuru, there is the all in one access for information quintessential for developers and admins). From here you can monitor the performance from all cloud applications; regardless of the server location; you can troubleshoot diagnostics; cross check against the provisioned services, and even check the health and status of the cloud server itself.

I definitely need to grasp the fundamentals of this technology; but nevertheless I have been writing VB and using Google AdSense since 2003 on my own hand made html page. This customized technology app from Uhuru needs to become more user friendly and then it becomes a permanent winner in for my use and a recommendation to local business practices of all sorts.

Animal Farm – George Orwell [Full Length Animated Movie, 1954]

Animal Farm is a British animated film by Halas and Batchelor, based on the book of the same name by George Orwell. It was the first British animated feature released worldwide, which, despite the title and Disney-esque animal animation, is in fact a no-holds-barred adaptation of George Orwell’s classic satire on Stalinism, with the animals taking over their farm by means of a revolutionary coup, but then discovering that although all animals are supposed to be equal, some are more equal than others.

Thomas Sowell Dismantles Egalitarianism (Frances Fox Piven Edition)

Thomas Sowell addresses the economic and personal sacrifices by identifying people in groups based on frivolous attributes such as skin pigment. How is skin color grouping any different than grouping people by hair color. The result is less individual motivation and increased political controversies. Unfortunately, the group these policies intend to help have resulted in even less favorable conditions than ever before.

In this clip from the 1980 Free To Choose, socialist Frances Fox Piven tangles with Milton Friedman and Thomas Sowell. Sowell, in particular, is incisive with his discussion of “process” versus aspiration — concluding that whatever the purported social goals, liberty suffers.
