    Installing TensorFlow on MacOS Sierra 

    I can’t remember every steps but I need to leave some notes that I can refer to later 🙂 I just put everything I can remember here 🙂

    The directory:

    cd /usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/tensorflow/bin
    source activate tensorflow

    code example to test

    >> import tensorflow as tf
    >>> hello = tf.constant(‘Hello, TensorFlow!’)
    >>> sess = tf.Session()
    >>> print sess.run(hello)
    Hello, TensorFlow!
    >>> a = tf.constant(10)
    >>> b = tf.constant(32)
    >>> print sess.run(a+b)
    >>> quit()
    (tensorflow) CG-MacBook-Pro-2:bin Marisa$ deactivate

    Activating virtualenv

    $ cd /path/to/tensorflow/bin
    $ source activate tensorflow
    $ python
    >>> import tensorflow as tf
    >>> print(tf.__version__)

    Installing RabbitMQ on MacOS 

    1. Download RabbitMQ for Mac here
    2. Download Java AMQP client library here
    3. Start RabbitMQ server by running ./rabbitmq-serverBildschirmfoto 2015-02-26 um 11.10.15 vorm.
    4. Check that the server is running properly with ./rabbitmqctl statusBildschirmfoto 2015-02-26 um 11.10.51 vorm.
    5. Compile and run a HelloWorld testing program from the tutorial here. Compile the Send.java and Recv.java files with javac -cp rabbitmq-client.jar Send.java Recv.java. Run Send.java with java -cp .:commons-io-1.2.jar:commons-cli-1.1.jar:rabbitmq-client.jar Send. This will send the message (in this case the message is “Hello World!”) to the queue. And then run Recv.java with java -cp .:commons-io-1.2.jar:commons-cli-1.1.jar:rabbitmq-client.jar Recv to pop out the message on the queue.Bildschirmfoto 2015-02-26 um 11.08.05 vorm.

      On Linux (I know, it’s not Mac OS X 🙂 ) there’s “amqp-tools”. Install it with “apt-get install amqp-tools”. You’ll get five (5) command line tools. For example if you want to publish something:

      amqp-publish -e exchange_name -b “your message”

      To get a message from a queue:

      amqp-get -q queue_name
      amqp-consume -q queue_name

      I believe these tools are built with rabbitmq-c library. Having said that, I looked at the newer version of rabbitmq-c library in here:

      It has a number of different tools. Perhaps they changed (upgraded?) the library? I have not looked deeper into it. Basically, it is a C library that you can use to create command line tools. I looked at one of the code, and hardcoded the userid dan password in it so I can use something like this.

      amqp_sendstring localhost 5672 amq.direct test “hello world”

      I have tested amqp-tools and this rabbitmq-c library agains locally installed rabbitmq server. They work!

    • Budi Rahardjo 8:37 am on February 28, 2015 Permalink | Reply

      And now for some clients. I have tested Perl Net::RabbitMQ. Getting it running is easy.

      Publishing message(s) works perfectly, but I am still having problems getting one (1) message from the queue. For some reasons, I got *all* the messages from the queue. ie. get and consume behave the same. I need to tinker some more with the get.

      I haven’t had time to play with Python and Java clients.

    Snow Leopard vs Mountain Lion 


    I owned a White Macbook for more than 5 years, and feeling very happy using Leopard and then upgrading to Snow Leopard. After enduring a phd saga for 5 years, the Macbook’s casing started to crack here and there, and then I decided to give it to cadet#1 so that it can stay at home and hopefully will stop cracking.

    I got myself a new MacBook Pro with Mountain Lion (Mac OS X 10.8.4), 2.5GHz Intel Core i5, 4GB 1600MHz DDR3. At first I was astonished with new things that Mountain Lion offers like more finger gestures, mission control, side notifications etc. But after a few days I started to realize that Mountain Lion is not as snappy and as responsive as Snow Leopard.

    Mountain Lion takes several seconds after hibernation to be ready to accept password while Snow Leopard will accept it right away as I open the lid. After several days without restarting the OS, Mountain Lion will acting so slow while Snow Leopard works fine for weeks without being restarted. And when I open lots of tabs on the browser, or firing up web and database server, Mountain Lion sluggishness will acting up again.

    Lots of people have been complaining about Mountain Lion, and they also say that Snow Leopard is the best Mac OS. So what to do? Downgrading?

    This link gives 12 reasons why Mac runs slow with Mountain Lion, and one thing I definitely would do is upgrading the RAM. There are more tips here. I will write some report after I find more ways on how to deal with the sluggish Mountain Lion.

    *Update: Everybody is suggesting to upgrade to SSD and highest possible RAM. Ok will do it. This is a useful link about how to install and additional SSD drive.

    Installing MAMP and CodeIgniter on Mountain Lion 

    Installing MAMP:

    1. Download MAMP at  http://mamp.info/en/. Once the .dmg file is downloaded, double click on it if it did not unzip itself. Than drag the MAMP folder into Applications folder.
    2. From Application folder, double click MAMP program and click “Start Servers”. At this point the web server, database server and application server has been activated on your Mac.Screen Shot 2013-07-18 at 1.47.28 PM
    3. If you click Open Start Page, MAMP will show you the MAMP Page on your local webserver (http://localhost:8888/MAMP)
    4. For more details on installing and MAMP setting up, read more here.

    Installing CodeIgniter:

    1. Download CodeIgniter here.
    2. Unzip CodeIgniter by double-clicking it.
    3. Rename CodeIgniter folder into “ci” (this is the common practice).
    4. Copy the folder to the PHP and mySQL enabled server, which is, in this case is in Applications/MAMP/htdocs
    5. Configure system/application/config/config.php by adding $config[‘base_url’] = “http://localhost/ci/”;
    6. Go to http://localhost/ci/Screen Shot 2013-07-18 at 1.47.09 PM

      I received and error after following your instructions and adding:
      $config[‘base_url’] = “http://localhost/ci/&#8221”;

      The error reads..

    Retrieving lost passwords in MacOS 

    For some reasons I cannot explain here, I have several accounts for emails and socmeds and chat service. Today I forgot one which refers to another account, which I forgot the password, which refers to a dead email. Recursive craziness of losing passwords.

    I tried several ways like guessing all passwords I could remember, trying to find out how to switch the address of the dead email to a live one, an so on. And then I remembered that I connect to most of the accounts (Gmail, YM, FB, etc) using Adium, so tinkered with it to try to recover the passwords, but for no avail.

    So I googled, and find out that all passwords are stored in Finder > Application > Keychain Access. I just need to click the account list there, and put a check on “show password” and enter the mac password, and yay! 🙂

    Snow Leopard: running in 32 or 64 bit? 

    Have just upgraded memory to 4GB and just found out that the Intel Core 2 Duo is 64 bit, I want to know whether my system running in 32 or 64 bit.

    By default Snow Leopard run in 32 bit but can be changed to 64 by hitting “6” and “4” while booting. This is the result before:

    After I boot and hold “6” and “4” keys, nothing’s changed. Why?
    Because the EFI is still 32-bit, so my system cannot run 64-bit kernel. Oh well.
