  1. The funny thing is that here in Germany, while internal HDDs are outrageously expensive, the prices for external disks went only slightly higher. Some retailers don't even seem to give a damn and sell their disks at regular prices (Metro for example recently had an external 3 TB disk for 99 Euros and Aldi Süd had a 2 TB disk for 80 Euros and an 1.5 TB NAS for 100 Euros). Edit: I had the chance to get two 2 TB disks from Aldi for some friends and had a look which unit is actually built-in. It was a Seagate drive that costs about 160 Euros right now. :)
  2. I moved /var/www to /var/blah and then back to /var/www and now suddenly both www and svn-repos show up again.
  3. Hey guys, I am having a weird problem with my Debian server. When I change into the /var directory and do an ls or ls -alh, everything I expect to be there shows up except for the two folders www and svn-repos. The two belong to www-data:www-data and have 755 permissions. I can cd into the two directories without problem, it's just that they don't appear in the directory list even when I am logged in as root. I even tried with mc just for fun and the folders don't show up in the list either. Any idea what the problem might be?
  4. Horrible experience here. iMac download was quite weird. First I got a HTTP 500 and then nothing in the app store worked. After a few minutes, suddenly the Lion installer popped out of nowhere and asked me what to do. Installed, rebooted, no keyboard found (I've got the Apple BT keyboard) but other than that, it worked. What annoys me is the fact that Lion appears to be much slower than Snow Leopard. The animations (dock, Mission Control, Launchpad, Time Machine) are jaggy, scrolling large file lists in Finder hangs, etc. I have the Dual Core 21.5" iMac with 3 GHz, nVidia GeForce 9400 video c
  5. Hey guys, does any of you have experience in installing and configuring ejabberd under Debian Squeeze? I tried to set it up yesterday and failed. The installation finished successfully via apt and I configured it using dpkg-reconfigure ejabberd (set a hostname and the admin user). Whenever I start ejabberd however, the server crashes right away and there is a crash dump in /var/log/ejabberd/ which I cannot understand. No log whatsoever, though.
  6. I don't have much experience with Linux VMs under OS X unfortunately, but I can tell you that with Windows, Fusion seems more stable IMO although the network drivers caused a kernel panic once, though. However, Parallels crashed a couple of times with Windows 7 while Fusion worked fine. Performance-wise, VMware is not bad when operating with the VM itself, but I have performance issues when Windows 7 is running and I want to do something on the Mac (iMac with 3 GHz Core 2 Duo processor and 4 GB RAM, Windows 7 using 1 GB RAM). Even browsing the Internet can often lead to a beachball. I didn't h

  8. Hey guys, I recall being able to set-up domain aliases for free Google Apps accounts and that option is still visible in my control panel, but when I enter the domain name, Google tells me that Google Webmaster Tools are not available for my account. Any ideas if this is a temporary issue or did Google limit free accounts to one domain? The funny thing is that after getting the error, if I switch back to the list of registered domains, the newly entered domain appears with a link to confirm the ownership of the domain, but once I click on it, I get the same error about the Webmaster Tools. :
  9. Did you have any other codec pack installed? Codec packs can mess up your system badly. For WMA you don't need anything as WMA files can be decoded natively. Are you able to play the files with other players? Winamp and foobar2000 have wrappers for the system decoder, but VLC for example has its own decoder for WMA.
  10. Complicated if you don't have a HTML for us I guess. Are the images floated? If yes, just use "clear: both" for the squares. Centering can be done using "margin: 0 auto" for example.
  11. Hmm... Download to another folder and use a symlink?
  12. Partially right - for multi-column indexes, the first column will be used as index name. If the column was used previously for another index, the index name will be column-suffix where suffix is a number. mysql> create table test (id int auto_increment primary key, firstname varchar(255), lastname varchar(255), index(firstname), index(firstname, lastname)); mysql> show create table test\G *************************** 1. row *************************** Table: test Create Table: CREATE TABLE `test` ( `id` int(11) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT, `firstname` varchar(255) DEFAULT
  13. Right. Umm.. Not really. Indexes have a lot of benefit when the cardinality is large. It wouldn't make any sense to put an index on the gender column of a table for example where you only have a cardinality of 3 (male, female, null).
