Recently I’ve purchased a height adjustable Eliot desk. I’ve added the smart controller to it so it remembers my preferred settings. I really love its design and functionality. However there is a pain point. To move the desk to a stored position you have to continously press a button as long as it moves. EU… Continue reading How to trick Eliot’s smart controller
Recently I faced an issue with rate limiting of some remote service. I was sending more requested to that endpoint than allowed and therefore I’ve received errors messages when being beyond the limit. Luckily the hoster of my linux client box does provide multiple IP addresses for that machine. By splitting the work into multiple… Continue reading choosing bewteen source ip addresses
Even as a long term Neo4j user with a 10y+ experience I’ve stumbled over something being new to me. Therefore I thought it’s worth sharing.

This might be caused by technical or organizational restrictions. One generic solution to this kind of problems is using a VPN. Another alternative to be discussed in this blog post is… Continue reading Using Nginx to proxy a Neo4j instance
Neo4j 3.2.0 was released last week at GraphConnect Europe. Among lots of cool new features, unfortunately it has one new “feature” making life of APOC users little bit harder, esp. if you run Neo4j from docker.
