Allegheny State Park – Mountain Bike Adventure 10/08

Sunday Morning we set out at 2pm. Rounding up my wife sometimes takes a little while.  Drive was great, sunny and fall conditions the whole trip, 3 hours or so. We arrived Sunday night around 5pm or so and proceeded to the nearest Indian Reservation grocery store. Smokes every block! Duty free. We needed some provisions such as Eggs, Bacon, Wood, tomahocs, teepee, etc.Monday! We hit the trails. Our cabin was at the Summit of the state park and was next to the Mountain Biking / Cross Country Skiing center. The hills were really fricking rockin’ jockin’.  Here is a little glimpse of what we saw.Allegheny State ParkDave coming up hillAllegheny State Park

Algonquin Adventure June 2008

I’ve always wanted to visit the famous Algonquin Provincial Park. I had a few weeks vacation due me and my wife Amy was able to get the same week off. So, I spent some time researching the best place to go camping and found the following site useful http://www.algonquinpark.on.ca/ Based on a few different sources, Lake of Two Rivers Campground was recommended and was the oldest and most established parts of the Park.

Our plan was in effect! We would leave Monday June 2, 2008 and travel up north to Algonquin Provincial Park for a week of camping. Due to some minor problems with our current Coleman 8 person tent (hole) we needed to buy a new one. We looked for days and hours online to find the best family tent for our excursion. Eureka 8 person for $350, Kelky $400 but finally decided to bite the bullet and purchase the $29 Hillary Tent from Sears on Clearance!

So we took off from Cleveland at 12 pm on Monday using our faithful GPS to guide us. I knew my Garmin Nuvi 200 would only get us to Niagara Falls but technology is so comforting sometimes…

The weather was great and the hours went by quick. We reached the Canadian border sometime around 3:30pm and dealt the the strick Canadian customs. “Where are you going? For how long? Go ahead. After that, TORONTO. Let me just say that I’ve been to quit a few cities in my days on this earth and I would say Toronto is on the top of the “Worst traffic in the World” list. We kept up travelling at 130+km/hr weaving in and out of beat up Le Shoppe bread trucks and various maintenance vehicles. Top if off with a 3 hour traffic jam fortunately going the other way but warning us for the return trip.

After that, the beauty of Ontario begins to increase with every kilometer. (After Hamilton) 3+ hours after Toronto, we started to enter obvious camping and canoeing country. Every other store was a wilderness outfitter or canoe rental. A few more miles and we passed a young gentlemen with what we thought was a costume of sorts. This costume turned out to be a Mosquito Net suite which we laughed at and drove on.

Finally Alqonquin Park Gates ahead of us. Hours of operation 6am-6pm and it was 7:30pm. For some reason there was someone there that fielded our questions and pointed us in the right direction. As we walked from our air condition SUV to the Welcome center, we were amused at the amount and voraciousness of the bug life there.

Multiple Jboss Instances on one server

This works for JBOSS 4.0.5.GA! hopefully, it will work on some other versions. The important thing is to change the port number for the services you are running in your application – http, rmi, jndi, Webservice e.t.c. You will find these in the following xml files -All xml are in the server directory JBOSS.

Leave the first instance of your JBoss unchanged. In the 2nd instance, for example, update the xml files as described below:

…<jboss folder>…/server/default/deploy/jbossweb-tomcat55.sar/server.xml:
update 8080 to 18080

…<jboss folder>…/server/default/conf/jboss-service.xml:
update 1099 to 11099
update 1098 to 11098
update 4445 to 14445
update 4444 to 14444

…<jboss folder>…/server/default/conf/jboss-minimal.xml:
update 1099 to 11099
update 1098 to 11098
…<jboss folder>…/server/default/deploy/jms/uil2-service.xml – update 8093 to 18093

…<jboss folder>…/server/default/conf/jboss-service.xml – update 8083 to 18083
