“A scary startup productivity tip that actually works: don’t work when you don’t feel like working.”—@shanley

Agreed :). A productivity trick I've found as a geek along those lines is - try to do the kind of work you feel like doing right now.

As a geek (and for all of us really) there are lots of different kinds of things to do; writing new code, tidying up code, fixing bugs, debugging, testing, discussing things with your team, prioritising & cleaning up issue trackers, documentation, brainstorming, experimentation, learning, playing and that dreaded paperwork. They all require different parts of you, different kinds of focus and suit different moods and energy levels.

So the trick is pick the right task to suit your mood. If you're not in a very inventive or innovative mood, don't try to write new code - do some documentation or issue tracker spring cleaning instead then come back later when you're feeling more into it. Reading an issue might inspire you to invent something. Incidentally I've found when hungover, debugging is a great task; you can kinda go on autopilot for a bit and can forget how bad you feel :). I try to focus on writing brand new APIs and chunks of big new code when I'm really awake, alert and in the mood.

Sometimes we have relatively crappy stuff to do (e.g. paperwork) or less than exciting chores; I often find treating yourself to a little bit of play/experimentation/learning/brainstorming/hacking (i..e the really fun stuff) in the day helps brighten your mood and motivation to help you through the less-fun work :)

A few early screen shots of the fabric8 console for working with Kubernetes, Docker and OpenShift V3 reusing the underlying hawtio HTML5 front end.

You can then add apps via drag and drop and easily run them on any kubernetes cloud

A new screencast of using Apache Camel and hawtio in the cloud on OpenShift via JBoss Fuse 6.1 EA. Ride your camel on the open hybrid cloud ;)

Yeah, we cut version 1.2-M1 last week; hopefully next week we can get the full 1.2 version out.

Here's the default war: http://repo2.maven.org/maven2/io/hawt/hawtio-default/1.2-M1/

or the sample war (that has some camel and activemq to play with)
