This beautiful spring day, we dedicated to God in natural wonder through Tulips of every shape, size and color.

God’s architecture of these magnificent small pieces of engineering, and our symbol of Global Piece, give further testament to his immeasurable wisdom and limitless love.

Question - How many ways would YOU examine a Tulip -

Rainbow of Tulips, Take My Breath Away! - 2

Dedication to Our Flower for Global Peace, The Tulip -  1

To God We Give the Glory In All Things!

We, the 4th Degree Knights of Columbus Assembly 1630 in Bellevue Washington, sincerely give our thanks in faithful prayer for allowing us to participate in this most holy dedication to the Protection of Life in all its forms at St. Louise De Mariliac in the Garden of Innocence. In this garden, one will find a very peaceful place to simply be and meditate on what life means before the Holy Family in their desire for the protection of mankind at the beginning of life, and also at the end of life.

I hadn’t been a Sir Knight of Columbus for even a year, and I have already been elected to an officer position to stand guard as Faithful Outer Sentinel…

Eric Iwasyk is our Assembly’s other guarding officer as Faithful Inner Sentinel that you see in this picture:

Naturally, my beloved wife Jill could not stop giggling while see took this picture and hung our officer’s medals around our necks:

I realize the blog post is a bit over due, but here it goes...

This picture was taken at Everett, Washington United States Navel Base on Saturday, March 1st, 2008. The occasion was to humbly promote me to the esteemed rank of Sir Knight: Matthew James Klump in 4th Degree of the Knights of Columbus as a new member of his Very Reverend William J. Power assembly 1630. I appear in this photo with our Master of Ceremonies, myself mistakenly wearing my name badge with my tuxedo, and my wife Jill with her brides maid dress that you recognise from the wedding of Caroline Hill and Patrick Pitz.

4th_DegreeCommencement#1

In this photograph with my Jill and I is Brother Sir Knight Trevy Burgess who was knighted the same time I was.

4th_DegreeCommencement#2

This is our actual moment of being knighted: My eyes are closed praying to Almighty Father God Most High while kneeling before a member of the Washington 4th Degree Team, also giving my oath to protect and defend our church including our clergy of brother Priests in the Holy Roman Catholic Church. It looks like Jill momentarily found something funny to look at.

4th_DegreeCommencement#3

In this second picture of our knighting, it looks like our roles are reversed with Jill’s eyes closed and my eyes being opened (presumed of course by God himself). At the time I think I was looking at another member of the 4th Degree Team, and looks hard to tell, but Jill is either praying or still laughing, I can’t tell which. My assumption is that she is praying.

It is times like this when I can’t figure out if I am awake or still dreaming when I see new cell phone technology like these. Sprint still requires the two year service agreement where TMobile does not and both phones would cost the same at about $300. I had a monthly discount with my previous employer Volt at about 8% off per monthly bill, and it looks like I have got another 8% discount with T-Mobile monthly bill with the new job I start with this Thursday for doing testing on Windows Vista with the Windows Division through Aditi staffing agency as another temporary Microsoft contract. This will most likely go to the middle of March, and then I’ll look for work again.

Our very own highly prized and long awaited Complete Compendium of Jill Feyerherm and Matthew Klump’s photo gallery is back online at http://home.klump-pdx.com/ngallery for anyone that wishes to see some amussing history of our lives as well as the many challenges we have overcome and also the many good times we have shared.

I was thinking about how interestingly I had rather suddenly and unexpectedly bumped into our good and funny guy Rory Blyth! I was very fortunate to happen to drop by Rory’s blog this Sunday, September 30th, 2007 since tomorrow is Rory’s last day as a Microsoft Technical Evangelist. I was very moved by his life experience that he mentioned over the last three years of his fun at Microsoft, and I felt compelled to write him back a short reply:

 

My friend Rory,                                                                                                                                    

My encounter with you in building 25 cafeteria, the building where my present contract has placed me, was very enlightening, and also definitely a sign. It was a sign that I am not all that far behind you in the direction that you are headed in back to my home of 29 years, Portland Oregon after my present contract with Microsoft comes to its natural conclusion. For the longest time, it felt like my stay here in Redmond/Bellevue/Issaquah was more like a pilgrimage for spiritual knowledge, and then slowly as months turned into year, it felt like a Babylonian Exile much the same way that the two ancient Jewish nations in the land of Israel known as Jerusalem and Judea were banished from their cities and forced to live in captivity within Babylon. Their temples destroyed, and their people enslaved by the Babylonians because they did not heed the warnings of God's chosen prophets. They could not do something so simple as to obey God's laws and precepts that were handed down to them by Moses himself. Yes, it was the Ten Commandments that we know all too well. I too also believe that I've gained invaluable experience during my time at Microsoft. My skill levels have finally advanced to the point with software programming in testing and development that I stand a much stronger chance of gaining software engineering work in Portland Oregon that has always been my dream.

Rory my friend, if you happen across any contacts in the Portland area you happen to know of since your headed back to Portland and tomorrow is your last day at Microsoft, do you think you can put in a good word for me over at the Pack West Microsoft office in Beaverton, OR? Or anyone else you happen to bump into kind of the same way that you and I bumped into each other over in the Building 25 cafeteria?

A friend once said to me that the greatest joy happens in helping someone else, and perhaps even if that person is a somewhat of a stranger. I could not help but think about how you have been since the last time we met as business acquaintances. I'm glad I read your blog today since it spoke to me a great deal about being away from home and wanting to see family again.

-Matthew

In response to Gloria’s story in the Seattle Times and the out pouring of support and prayers by her faith community, my faith simply demanded that I write to her a short note:

Dear Gloria,

Both I, Matthew James, and my wife Jill of St. Louise De Mariliac parish in Bellevue, WA have heard and read of your story from the beginning, especially by my wife Jill.
We are also members of the anointed Knights of Columbus Counsel 4385 at St. Louise parish and also the Young Adults Group Ministry of St. Louise De Mariliac, and all of us extend our prayers out to you for speedy healing and a complete recovery. And if this is not the will of our most holy Lord God Jesus Christ, that he whose heart lights every dark place in this world, take you Gloria to his bosom as you enter into the throne room of God to live forever and reign with the holy family, Saints, and hosts of heaven, one God, forever and ever,
Ah men.
Many of us wish that we could follow you as you are reborn from this life to life everlasting in the next. Like infant children who do not understand, none of us who are still disciples of Jesus here on Earth are meant to understand what life with him is like until our faith walk in his glory on Earth is at an end. The Gospel of Jesus tells us over and over again not to fear, and that through faith we are saved.
To my knowledge, you have done exactly this, so you have nothing to fear, and when the time comes for his second coming to you, your rebirth as your are given victory over death will be glorious!

This is my prayer for you and my belief as told to me by his word, the one true Living God.
-Matthew

If you ever happen across an IIS web server that absolutely REFUSES to behave properly and render web application requests for clients as a good little web server should, then check out the fix for x64 ASP.NET 2.0…

1) Check that you DO NOT see this:

 

C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727>aspnet_regiis -lv

2.0.50727.0     Valid           C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727\aspnet_isapi.dll

1.1.4322.0      Valid           C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\aspnet_isapi.dll

2.0.50727.0     Valid           C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\\aspnet_isapi.dll

 

2) If you do, then do this:

 

C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727>aspnet_regiis -ua

Start uninstalling all versions of ASP.NET.

..............................Start uninstalling all versions of ASP.NET.

.........................

Finished uninstalling all versions of ASP.NET.

.

Finished uninstalling all versions of ASP.NET.

 

C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727>aspnet_regiis -lv

Cannot find any installed version.

 

3) Finally, to make your IIS 6.0 webserver host on a X64 Windows OS, do this:

 

C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322>aspnet_regiis -i

Start installing ASP.NET (1.1.4322.0).

Finished installing ASP.NET (1.1.4322.0).

 

C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322>aspnet_regiis -lv

1.1.4322.0      Valid (Root)    C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\aspnet_isapi.dll

 

4) And also this to set x64 ASP.NET as the default and root version to finally resolve the version conflicts:

 

C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727>aspnet_regiis.exe -i

Start installing ASP.NET (2.0.50727).

.............................................

Finished installing ASP.NET (2.0.50727).

 

C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727>aspnet_regiis.exe -lv

2.0.50727.0     Valid (Root)    C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727\aspnet_isapi.dll

1.1.4322.0      Valid           C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\aspnet_isapi.dll

If your favorite buddies are as happy as ours are in their sandbox-latrine:

CatWithNewspaperInLittermaid

 

 

 

Then you know what a headache life can be when you Litermaid Automatic cat litter box by Applica Incorporated can be when this wonderful consumer product since slice bread decides to break down.

If you encounter the same situation that I did where I couldn’t get the litter rake arm moving again regardless of whether the device was plugged into an AC power outlet or powered by batteries, then follow these simple steps to get your automatic Littermaid cat box rake arm moving again:

1) Un plug all power supplies from any AC outlet and remove all batteries.

2) Where the rake arm would normally move all the way up to the receptical side to depress to two switches: Press both of these rake arm retraction switches, simultaneously ten times, and in a row as shown in this picture. The switches are located at the end of each track on each side of the litter box:

3) Wait 5 minutes.

4) Plug you AC power back in or put your batteries back into the Littermaid cat box.

5)  Your scoop/rake arm should be moving once again, and everything as working again just fine!

If these touble shoot steps helpped for you, please feel free to comment your experience below.

In the infancy of my career as a beginner programmer, I learned from the very beginning that planning and design is usually 60% of our work, and following through with implementation is 40% of what we do. Deploying a server is no different from deciding exactly on the topology of the server, to the thumb twidling of waiting for the status bar to reach 100%. In the end, a machine that started out as a workstation will never be a server, and reciprocally a sever will never be a workstation. My reality consumed a good two months in the wrong direction, and my hope is will help as a warning from my experience.

I wish to dedicate this public message to all my friends of old who are continuing to try their best to make the most of life:

The first part of this post I would like to further dedicate to Karen Hansen, who I finally had the distinct honor of meeting with her new husband after 25 years of life in separate directions at Linda Gustofson’s Chocolate and Champagne party. Karen, if you are able to read this, send me an email, so that we add you to our Christmas Card list, and of course if you ever happen to be in the Seattle area or just wish to write back and forth. If you ever wish to chat, I can be found on MSN Messenger under my email for login (matthew@klump-pdx.com). If would also be great if we could get your email address as well as your husband’s so we can stay in touch. I will send an email to my sister Sara just in case you happen to contact her.

Erindale Cannon:

My wife Jill with Erindale’s new baby Angelina:

200611251311_00039

Joya was not with Erindale when she took baby Angelina with her that day to Jill’s and Erindale’s favorite Coffee Shop in downtown Monmouth. We did, however, finally get to meet baby Joya again that day since she was experiencing a “time out” earlier that day by the surigate parents Grandma and Grandpa. Joya is growing up very quickly into the young toddler she is now. I was not able to capture a picture of her, but the best was I could describe her is very healthy for a child her age, eyes of both her Mother and her Father, and long brown curls of locks.

We wish you the best, Erindale, Joya, and now baby Angelina. May you all find room in your hearts to bring your father, Art Mcgee, back into your lives as a complete and loving family once again… In Jesus name, we pray for this to be a reality, ah men…

All Internet Explorer users —> NOW HERE THIS! <—

There two more gotch’yas I’ve recently stumbled across that I hope to save everyone that same trouble from:

1)      If your friend has provided you a login to his website running IIS and without 128-bit SSL, HTTPS encryption, make sure you disable “Enable Windows Integrated Security,” or you’ll be forever disallowed to login to your friend’s site.

2)      Don’t ever expect to use Internet Explorer for access to your favorite FTP sites anymore. For security concerns, FTP access is turned off in Internet Explorer 7.0. You are now restricted to use FTP access only through an Explorer Window to keep your files and password from being sent in clear text across the wire.

I hope this helps for everyone that is a Windows or Internet Explorer out there, and we’ll see you at the next blog entry.

Hey Gang,

I’ve gotten my enlistment set and approved through autosecure as:

//depot/... //a-mattk-YonaSeverManagementDepot/...

//depot/sources/test/... //a-mattk-YonaSeverManagementDepot/sources/test/...

 

When I try to execute:

sd sync -f -w //depot/sources/test/…

I get:

//depot/sources/test/... - no permission to protected namespace; see 'sd help permissions'.

I do have access to the main portion of the depot because when I execute sd sync -f -w //depot/...

I’m getting a different result from earlier as:

Request too large (over 200000); see 'sd help maxresults'.

Meaning it’s definitely trying, but something else is wrong, maybe the view mapping to get the source code.

Mean while I’ve been trying desperately to execute a successful xcopy command from my friend's network share, but currently is not working since every other subfolder has an offending file whose name is too long (greater than 255 chars).

This can be worked around by having xcopy renaming all the offending folders and files with the /N switch which will execute the copy using the generated short names. This pretty much ruins everything since after the copy, I’m not able to read or tell exactly which is what since now my build source differs from the original.

Since manually copying the depot will never work, what would you suggest to fix this?

So, what is the answer behind door number one Bob? Du, na, na, naaaaaaaah......

!! ROBOCOPY !!

Yes my friends, ROBOSCOPY will solve all of your copying needs, no matter HOW OBSCURE your soucre control tree may be...

All you have to do is faithfully believe in your self as a programmer, be a devout user of Microsoft .NET (MS Windows also helps), have a firm belief in God through Jesus Christ to deliver you from all of your programming difficulties, and go to the URL http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=9d467a69-57ff-4ae7-96ee-b18c4790cffd&displaylang=en to download the Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit Tools for Windows XP Professional and Windows Server 2003. Within the tool kit you will find ROBOCOPY plus a large expanded set of the cmd32 commands you are already used too. Have fun, have a great HAPPY THANKS GIVING and a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS, and let me know if this works for any of you... (Post comment down below)
