Last Month in MIQ is a column about code and code things: everything code, except actual code.
To queue, or not to queue, that is the question:
Whether ‘tis Nobler in the mind to suffer
The Slings and Arrows of memcached in containers,
Or to take Arms against a Sea of zone spec failures,
And by opposing end them: to die, to sleep
No more; and by a sleep, to say we end
The Heart-ache, and the thousand Natural shocks
That Flesh is heir to? ‘Tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wished. To die, to sleep,
To sleep, perchance to Dream; Aye, there’s the rub.
Building A Blog Post
“My name is Ilnarin,” the proud dwarf announced, “daughter of Raszaka, daughter of Ellina, daughter of Almyara, heir to the kingdom of Vik-Huzth, Queen of the Neither-Under-Nor-Over-Folk, ring-carrier, dragon-slayer, M.D., Rt Hon.”
This week is a sing-along MIQ Sea Shanty after the style of the old “Roll the Old Chariot Down”
It’s an oppressively clammy summer Saturday afternoon. You have the weekend to write YALMiMIQ. It’s Saturday and you can afford to procrastinate. You open the GitHub query and peruse the recent additions anyway, wondering what to showcase this time.
You wake up. You’re in your house. There’s a gigantic white dog slumbering peacefully with one eye open and a timer that appears to be counting down 120 seconds. You jump up, grab the timer, and run out. You stumble out into a huge monochrome map. North? West? One way is blocked. A minute left. There’s a lighthouse right next to you. You climb as the timer counts down. As the seconds slip away, you find an important quest item at the top of the lighthouse. Congrats! You are holding a tool to process logs looking for frequency of method calls! Ding! The time is up.
You wake up in your little house. There’s the dog… and oh yeah, you suddenly recall that you got an item yesterday. You look around for it. The dog is drooling all over it in its slumber. You sigh but are afraid to wake the beast. You grab the timer and run outside again. The lighthouse is gone, and the only way open to you today is south. You head south as the timer counts down, pausing to examine a stray catalog item with a tag control element. You see that the item is broken, that you cannot order it as you should be able to. You drop it in frustration. Ding!
You wake up. The dog is nowhere to be seen. Incidentally, your tool to process logs isn’t either, and you wonder ruefully if you should have saved it from its fate. The timer is counting down. You grab it and run, heading south again until you reach your catalog item with a tag control element from yesterday. And lo and behold, it appears to be fully functional today! Marvelling, you barely notice that you’re again out of time.
You wake up. The dog is back. Your process logs tool is beaten up but still mostly intact. You grab it and the timer. The dog stirs but does not wake. You hide the tool in your chest, delighting at the fact that it also contains a new Openstack Cinder EventCatcher worker and head out again with the timer. This time there appears to be a small river next to your house. You head towards the sound of the water. On the beach are several RHV markers. Delighted, you grab them. Ding!
You wake up to a very strange sight. The dog has seemingly grown very long claws and is reading on the floor. You stumble to your feet and back up a few steps hurridly. The beast looks at the ticking timer and barks once, a strange bark infused with the burning smell of charter magic. The timer stops. The dog languidly looks up at you, its paws growing back to their regular size, and noses the book towards you. You stare blankly at the upsidedown page, struggling to decipher the seven words which have appeared in front of your eyes. “Fixes disk size misreporting for some disks”, you read. The dog barks again, and the time is, once again, up.
You wake up. You realize with some dread that a sense of realism, concise documentation, perfecting the art of recognizing and handling abnormal people, moving to the eighth dimension, secret messages from your teeth, knowing every line of Airplane!, the music that is sometimes known as blues, a misguided but adorable belief in meaning, or even the sudden development of some semblance of a personality cannot save you.
You cannot be saved.
Since its founding in 2018, Last Month In MIQ has been the absolute golden standard for journalistic integrity, never afraid to grab truth by the scruff of the neck and shake it up a little. Of course, that being said, we do ever so occasionally take a break from our regularly scheduled program to bring you insights into the minds of our crack team here at MIQ. I know you look forward to such rare occasions with baited breath. Best not to think about what it’s baited with.
Unfortunately the current run of our blog has had to be mostly abandoned because of its low visibility and a striking case of writers’ remorse, but we felt that our readers would still want to know a little something of the private lives of our contributors.
d-m-uwrite yet another one. When will this madness end? They are tempting the very threads of fate herself, letting
d-m-uget away with this twice in a row. Who knows what horrors will befall you this time. You shudder. If you are lucky, it will be only physical monsters, not the unearthly disturbances of time and dark and cold that have been evoked with such disasterous results previously. You had held out a smattering of hope that
d-m-u'sprose might be gentled the way that centuries of water smooth a pebble, but such hope is whisked away with the next thought: you never know, with these texts, if you will exist outside the inky blackness, cursed to only watch as the story dismally unfolds before your eyes, or if you will be a deeply unwilling participant, your agency slave to the whims of an unreliable, mercurial narrator.
First Mast Lonth
HELLO Folks! Aparna here with a special year-end edition for the ‘Last Week in ManageIQ’. Strap on your seat belts as we get into the time portal machine and review what made 2017 special.
Welcome to this week’s edition of LWIMIQ! It’s beginning to look a lot like the holiday season, and we sure have been as busy as ’s elves with wrapping up bugs.
Hi. I, ZitaNemeckova will tell you more about our effort to improve our codebase. It’s not only about fixing code but also about cleaning and deleting. If you never used static analysis tool to find dead methods this post is for you.
Hello there! This week’s LWIMIQ is contributed by Harpreet Hope everyone in the US had a wonderful time enjoying Thanksgiving feast with family and friends, and of course shopping Black Friday deals. With Christmas and New Year right around the corner everyone must be in holiday mode, while our team at ManageIQ is working hard to get Gaprindashvili as stable as possible. Since we are in a bug fixing phase not much to report features/enhancement wise from my side.
It’s that time of year again what with; Thanksgiving, Black Friday deals, and many other seasonal holidays around the corner. On everyone’s mind though before we get to all that are… …bugs. Lots and lots of bugs. Well more specifically bug fixes. With the Gaprindashvili release just around the corner, the team is busy busy, fixing bugs and making the bestest release of ManageIQ yet.
You are about to read d-m-u’s latest blog post. So it goes. Relax. Concentrate. Dispel every other thought. Let the world around you fade. Center yourself. It’s a difficult task, as you know. We got a bunch of robot computer people sittin’ around with their faces stuffed in computer screens. Breathe. Ignore all the robot computer people commotion around you.
Wohoo! It’s here again! All the features we were working on over the truly Fine summer, are now released in new version, Gaprindashvili.
A Puzzle for your Perusal

- Do you attend the ManageIQ Sprint Reviews held every two weeks?
- Do you know how to contribute to the ManageIQ open source project?

Yep, it’s syncrou here again for another entry in LWIMIQ.
Hello everyone, my name is Dávid Halász and I’d like to guide you through the changes we made in the last week.
This last week of summer found the team back to work on our next release, following an engaging and productive all-hands engineering forum in New Jersey.
Last week, most engineering hands were busy in an internal Engineering All-Hands meeting. A few stray hands still found the opportunity to submit some PRs, but there were no available fingers for typing up an entry for “Last week in ManageIQ”. So please allow me, Carol, to paw in a few words in this edition.
Hi all,…John Prause here. I’m usually the one behind-the-scenes, but I thought I’d take a shot at writing one of these, so here goes…
Hello, Dávid here from the UI team. Let’s have a quick recap about what happened in the last week on the magical land of ManageIQ.
Chris here, welcoming you to the first of the biweekly summer edition of Last Week in ManageIQ! Though, the summer solstice (for the northern hemisphere) already occurred on June 20th. And wait, that’s not even the start of meteorological summer which was actually on June 1st. Also shouldn’t it be Last Weeks In ManageIQ, then?

Hello there! This is Harpreet Kataria, my first contribution at LWIMIQ blog post, I want to share some updates on what has been happening in ManageIQ world this past week. Team ManageIQ has been busy squashing bugz rapidly to make Fine release finer and more stable. After all bugz are bugz and must be squashed.

Fine season (get it?) indeed is one that brings with it a glimmer of sunshine and all around goodness.
Another week is behind us, a new one is here and it brings along the next weekly update. I’m Roman from ManageIQ UI team, and I’ll walk you through what happened in the last week in ManageIQ.

Chris here, welcoming you to another edition of Last Week in ManageIQ! It’s a balmy 0° here in Minnesota, USA - that’s about -18° Celsius, according to local authorities. With the wind chill making it -20° (-29°C), I’m thinking a look back at all the great work done on ManageIQ for the past week is just what we need to keep warm on this fine winter day!
