I’m having problems getting NGINX with the RTMP module to start when the RTMP server block is used within a file inside the sites-available (symbolic linked to sites-enabled).

## Is this sequence $x_n=(1-\frac12)^{(\frac12-\frac13)^{…^{(\frac{1}{n}-\frac{1}{n+1})}}}$ uniformly distributed modulo 1?

The sequence $(x_n) ,n=1,2,\cdots$ is uniformly distributed mod 1 iff for real -valued continious function $f$ defined on the closed interval $[0,1]$ we have $\lim_{N\to \infty} \frac1N \sum_{n=1}^{N} f(\{x_n\})=\int_{0}^{1} f(x) dx$, Really am not able to apply that theorem for the following sequence $x_n=(1-\frac12)^{(\frac12-\frac13)^{…^{(\frac{1}{n}-\frac{1}{n+1})}}}$ to know if it is uniformly distributed or not […]

## Java – dynamically implement interface

I’m refactoring a code which lazy loads a class though the thread’s classLoader like this: Thread.currentThread().getContextClassLoader().loadClass(“path.to.class”); The problem is that “path.to.class” implements an interface (“Log”) from a library that is selected by the App’s user (so I know the driver version at runtime, not compile-time; specifically the driver is mysql-connector-java). So I need a way […]
