us-east-1e doesn’t have t3 instances

By admin | March 15, 2024

us-east-1e (although AWS may randomize zone mappings) doesn’t have t3 instances! This may cause the following error messages.

“The requested configuration is currently not supported. Please check the documentation for supported configurations”

“Your requested instance type (t3.large) is not supported in your requested Availability Zone (us-east-1e). Please retry your request by not specifying an Availability Zone or choosing us-east-1a, us-east-1b, us-east-1c, us-east-1d, us-east-1f”

ERRINFO_CLOSE_STACK_ON_DRIVER_FAILURE error in FreeRDP

By admin | April 8, 2023

xfreerdp /v:rdp_server_address /admin /network:auto /u:username /p:password

Connecting to a Windows 10 machine yielded the following error.

https://github.com/FreeRDP/FreeRDP/issues/6604 hints in https://github.com/FreeRDP/FreeRDP/issues/6604#issuecomment-746104066 that it might be an issue of hardware acceleration.

The solution is to disable RemoteFX for remote desktop.

Scala.js – Referring to non-existent class

Related issue: https://github.com/scala-js/scala-js/issues/629

If the issue is coming from a shared module being used in both a Scala.js and JVM setting, the issue may be that the shared module is not being compiled for Scala.js. We can fix that as follows by compiling it for both. Mill example below:

object MyObject extends ScalaModule with ScalaJSModule with ScalafmtModule {
  // ...
}

// Instead of

object MyObject extends ScalaModule with ScalafmtModule {
  // ...
}

Accessing SQL databases from Scala

By admin | July 21, 2021

import scalikejdbc._
import scalikejdbc.scalikejdbcSQLInterpolationImplicitDef

// initialize JDBC driver & connection pool
Class.forName("org.postgresql.Driver")

scalikejdbc.ConnectionPool.singleton("jdbc:postgresql://localhost:5432/", "user", "abcdef888")

sql"""
create table members (
  id serial not null primary key,
  fav_num integer NOT NULL,
  name text NOT NULL
)
""".execute.apply()(scalikejdbc.AutoSession)

sql"""
INSERT INTO members (name, fav_num) VALUES ('Foo', 123)
""".execute.apply()(scalikejdbc.AutoSession)

sql"""
INSERT INTO members (name, fav_num) VALUES ('Bar', 456)
""".execute.apply()(scalikejdbc.AutoSession)

// http://scalikejdbc.org/documentation/operations.html
scalikejdbc.DB.readOnly { implicit session =>
  sql"select * from members".foreach { (rs: scalikejdbc.WrappedResultSet) =>
    println(rs.toMap())
  }
}

You can run the database with Docker (example) as follows:

docker run --name mypsql -e POSTGRES_USER=user -e POSTGRES_PASSWORD=abcdef888 -p 5432:5432 postgres:13.3

Reference instructions for connecting to the docker instance:

psql -h localhost -U user
\dt
select * from members;
