Where to run in Boulder when in town on a business trip

Tuesday, October 16th, 2007

I visited Boulder, CO a few weeks ago at attend a conference put on by UC Boulder, and since I’m training for a half-marathon coming up in a few weeks, I wanted to go running one morning.  That, and I couldn’t not get outside and enjoy the fantastic weather compared to the hot/humid gross that is Florida summer.

So, where to run in Boulder on a quick trip when you don’t know the town all that well.  Why, the Boulder Creek Path of course:

If you go anywhere in town you’ll walk on it or over it, and follows the creek all the way across town and right into the Front Range.  And also, you end up with some pretty swanky sunrises coming back out of the mountains at dawn….worth it even if it does make you a few minutes late for the conference breakfast.

MySQL Dyld error.

Tuesday, October 16th, 2007

Apparently dyld errors happen with lots o’ packages (though I’m still not 100% on what the root cause is…..JFGI).

I most recently got one of these loading MySQL into a new apache2 install on OS X (10.4). I, and by I I really mean Gabe, was able to fix it with a little symlink action, thus:

/usr/local/mysql/lib/mysql root# ln -s ../libmysqlclient.15.dylib

links the .dylib from the parent directory to the /mysql dir where it was looking for it, and gives us

/usr/local/mysql/lib/mysql root# file libmysqlclient.15.dylib
libmysqlclient.15.dylib: symbolic link to `../libmysqlclient.15.dylib'

The End.
