Evening, Morning, Afternoon to All,

Here's a tidy Recap to send you into the weekend.

(Quick note: Monday is a holiday in the U.S., so I won't be writing a
Recap. If someone wants to step up and write it in my absence that
would be great. If not, regularly scheduled Recaps will pick back up
on Wednesday.)

Enjoy,

Mark

4) Basho Hacker Rusty Klophaus was on a panel about Non-Relational
Datastores way back in 2010 at Strange Loop. The video has just
surfaced (or at least it's new to me).

5) Q --- How do I force charset for content, when storing data in to
riak using riak http client? (from sragu via #riak)

    A --- Just specify it as the content-type. For example:

    Content-Type: text/plain;charset=UTF8

6) Q --- Can you change the luwak block size ? is it in the config
somewhere? can it be changed on a per file basis? (from siculars via
#riak)

    A --- Yes, the block size can be changed. For example:

    luwak_file:create(Client, Name, [{block_size, 123}], dict:new()).

    creates a luwak file with 123-byte blocks. Keep in mind that once
created, block size is unchangeable.
