It was just a moment’s choice to go for a film and was Shibili’s pick to go for “My Boss”. I supported, just because I love the comedy part. The film started on time and there was lot to laugh in the first half. Kalabhavan Shajon and Dileep entertains the viewers with comedy, the field they are comfortable with. Mamta’s appearance suits her character well, though you can’t find much similar people in real life. She appears as a rude boss in a IT firm @ Mumbai and the first half happens entirely at Mumbai. Being an Australian citizen, her visa is about to expire and she figures out marriage as an option to stay in India. She chooses her assistant, the character played by Dileep as her dummy husband. The story develops with this and few profession related issues. First half ends with both Dileep’s and Mamta’s characters; Manu and Priya boarding train to Alapuzha, Manu’s native place.No Comments | Read More...
ChunkHost performance review
Recently, I received a free 128MB chunk (That’s what they call a VPS) with 3GB storage and 35GB bandwidth per month for free. They says that its free for lifetime, if put into some use. My plan is to use it for delivering this site, which runs on wordpress, along with few other stuffs.
128MB RAM is very limited and there is no extra burst memory available. But, being a XEN VPS, I hope to get a satisfactory performance. The first thing I did was to measure the performance using UnixBench benchmark suite and the report is as follows.No Comments | Read More...
My laptop, HP NC6220 is confirmed dead. Its issue with display repeats after 3 days of servicing and the service engineers couldn’t rectify it permanently. So, they agreed to give a refund and I am forced to buy a Laptop. Thanks to the financial support by parents, I bought a Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E430 (3254 AM4) yesterday. Special thanks to my cousin Prakash for arranging it at the lowest rate possible.
I also bought a Lenovo G580 7036 for my friend Deepak and spent most of the time, yesterday configuring it. Will post a review of that asap.
So, I have used the thinkpad for just few hours and here goes my experience with it.
The basic configuration of the system is:

Allowing remote access of MySQL database
We @ DayScholars finally managed to arrange a good PC to setup as a centralized server for our code and databases. The server is running a customized Debian Squeeze distribution with MySQL Version 5.1. So the next requirement is to allow MySQL access for all of us. This is how we managed it. You must login as root user or must have root privilege to do this.
Edit the MySQL configuration file, located at /etc/mysql/my.cnf.
We prefer using vim. You can use any others like nano or even gedit.No Comments | Read More...
