OpenProj is a nice application to do project management. All done in Java so it works on all my workstations.
Read a few articles today and taught that these 2 things were interesting: Vixta and Zonbu. I wish Vixta had some Tablet PC features because I would be reformating my tablet PC in no time. Vista is just a pain. It amazes me that you can go backward with an upgrade. Zonbu is a nice PC but I am not looking for hosted storage. I want a small quiet PC with Linux.
I have to start getting to know mysql optimization a bit more so I started to read and I found 1 good article that promises that my reading are going to be more than interesting. So for innodb_thread_concurrency I have this article from Peter Zaitsev.
I had some problems installing the Cisco VPN client 4.8 on my Slackware 12.0 workstation so I searched a bit on the net and fond a page that had almost everything to the t: http://blog.360.yahoo.com/blog-.WURHFYwdq8.zfEosWC6j8jQ?p=55. A few very small differences that are due to the fact that the kernel has changed a bit more since this doc. So here are the very quick steps:
- cd /usr/src/linux/
- make menuconfig – and check that everything is good
- make bzImage
- cd include/linux
- ln -s autoconf.h config.h
- cd /whereever/vpnclient/
- perl -p -i -e ‘s/CHECKSUM_HW/CHECKSUM_COMPLETE/g’ interceptor.c – to replace references of CHECKSUM_HW with CHECKSUM_COMPLETE; there are only 2 to fix
- perl -p -i -e ‘s/skb_checksum_help(.*)/skb_checksum_help(skb)/g’ interceptor.c – to replace the 5 references to skb_checksum_help() with the proper parameters
- ./vpn_install – to install the Cisco VPN client
If you have a different experience don’t hesitate to let me know how it works for you.
A friend of mine recommended looking at Lambda Probe to monitor Tomcat Servers. I did not get a chance to look at everything but it looks very well done and gives you very valuable information about what your Tomcat Server is doin g.
