Charles Proxy is a great tool for web developers and it can help you in mobile apps too.
Here’s what you’d need to set it up:
- Run charles on your pc / mac, go to Proxy -> Proxy Settings and note the proxy port
- In your device network settings, enable http proxy and enter its ip and port (see below for ios)
- Back to charles, click on Proxy -> Throttling Settings and enable throttling while choosing the 3G Throttle Preset. In the example below i’ve created another preset where i’ve lowered the in/out bandwidth even further
That’s it – now go use your app and watch in the charles screen the requests.
For extra credits, you can introduce packet loss/reordering by running
tc qdisc change dev eth0 root netem delay 10ms reorder 25% 50%
in your box – see netem for more
If you get “The type initializer for ‘Nested’ threw an exception” when updating nhibernate,
then it might be related to Reference to Castle Proxy removed from NH-CORE.

The Tapestry home page is also full of exciting new reasons of why you’d be interested in using Tapestry, so if this is the first time you’ve heard of this component based framework or if it’s been a while since you last reviewed it, then I gladly welcome you to take a look.
Goal4D was the name of a java 3d engine i created a long long (long) time ago [2001-2003].
The code was never open-sourced and even though most of its features are obsolete now i don’t think it’d hurt anyone if i post it on my github account (i’d have to find the source code first).
Anyway, here’s a presentation i once did about Goal4D… enjoy!
On losing my primary HDD
I didn’t contact any of them but it looks like the price for the recovery can start from 300€ but will most likely end up to 1000-1500€. So, why didn’t i contact any of those? Well, after the first few hours had passed, i had calmed down and had booted to the second HDD’s – that one’s still alive – Windows Server 2003 for the first time in the last 2 years. Then, and while installing those 2 years’ worth of updates, I tried hard to think what i had lost.
Partial review of last year – php comeback?
( i’ll need another post -or posts- to explain this further)
Having Fun. PS3′s here
Well, that’s just another kick-ass gift from Emi!
Here’s what i’m currently playing:
- Uncharted – Drake’s Fortune Never heard of that, got it by accident, but GREAT!
- Braid cool platform little indie game – had read the dev’s blog (or was it a Gamasutra srticle) some months ago and wanted to try it ever since
- Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2
- Killzone 2
- GT5 Prologue
Anything else you’d suggest i should try?
Reading Apache Maven 2 Effective Implementation
The book has proven to be an interesting read so far (even for an advanced maven user), covering a lot of important (and sometimes little known) plugins. Its best practices chapter along with the real-life advices/tips that are found throughout the book are a must read. On the other hand, I would really have liked to see a chapter or appendix covering maven support in IDEs + I must admit don’t have much of respect for Archiva (that’s based on a few weeks interaction i had with it 3 years ago – perhaps things have improved?) which is covered in detail in the book, along with Continuum.
Anyway, expect a complete review soon.
