Wash your belt!

Upside down

I don’t remember how the topic came up but the question was asked, “Should I wash my belt?"

I wash my belt.

Your belt is the one things you wear every time you train. It will alway touch the mat. The belts are made of thick material and have lots of places for nasty things to live. 

Tim Blackstone told me the same thing when I was a white belt.






Here is how I wash my belt.

I put my belt into a laundry bag. The laundry bag helps keep the belt from getting tangled. You needs this if you have an upright clothes washer.

I put OdoBan (Damian recommended) into the rinse cycle. My clothes washer has a compartment for putting stuff into you want dispensed in the rinse cycle. Amazon Link.OdaBan











I air dry my belt stretched over the drying rack.  I never dry my belt in the clothes dryer. See the pictures for how I stretch the belt over the drying rack.

If I need to speed up the drying process I make a fan blow onto the belt.

The belt will shrink a little. I find once I start sweating it stretches to the right length.

Altium Infrastructure Server vs Microsoft SQL Server 2012

Sharing the knowledge.

Need to install Altium Infrastructure Server v1.0.1.61 onto Windows 10.

Followed the Altium Infrastructure Server documentation and when I attempted to log into the web interface I got an error dialog:

Something went wrong.
The type initializer for 'ExtentPlaceholderCreator' threw an exception.

To fix this changed the web.config in both the IDS and EDS directory. Look for the <runtime> section below

<assemblyBinding xmlns=“urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1”>

Add the following

<assemblyIdentity name=“Microsoft.SqlServer.Types” publicKeyToken=“89845dcd8080cc91” />
<bindingRedirect oldVersion=“" newVersion=“” />

This resolved the problem for me.

Hosting git repository on Windows Server with minimal 3rd party packages

I need to have a git repository hosted on a Windows Server. Go figure this would be simple to do. 

It was a political struggle to get git installed in my work environment. Installing out of the box solutions like scm-manager is not going to happen.

Here is the solution I cobbled together from multiple sources on the Internet.

On my workstation

  • $ git clone --bare chrome-app.git clone-chrome-app.git
  • Copy  clone-chrome-app.git to the Windows Server 

On the Windows Server 

  • $ cd /path/to/chrome-app.git
  • $ git init --bare --shared

On the Windows Server

  • $ cd /path/to/chrome-app.git
  • $ git daemon --base-path=. --export-all --reuseaddr --informative-errors —verbose --enable=receive-pack


Back on my workstation

  • $ git ls-remote git://IP.of.Windows.Server/chrome-app
  • $ git remote add windows  git://IP.of.Windows.Server/chrome-app.git
