Sun,Oracle ad campaign started. First time ads by Sun,Oracle

Today I saw following ad. Sun,Oracle combined ad pointing to IBM. I hope by Sept-4th, Sun and Oracle deal will close. Well known fact that Oracle performence is more on SUN hardware comparing to remaing Operating systems. Already 70% market captured by Oracle in Database sector and now it is having Own Operating system,own hardware.

So Oracle can provide A-Z solution to end users or customers.

My next project – explore usenet

what is Usenet ? Explore Usenet – this is my next silly project. Until now highly depend upon Google search  for past 4 years. Many of old  senior  UNIX  administrators and  system experts told me that usenet will provide extensive knowledge. But until now i din;t get chance to follow those knowledge rich newsgroups.

Now I got chance and funds to study about newsgroups and Usenet.  So started self study along with my pal google and Wikipedia. I am surprised that still Usenet  newsgroup are leading source providers  in this search engine dominating world.

Here are some questions first I need to answer.

1.What is Usenet ?

2.What is newsgroup ?

3.how to access Usenet or how to access newsgroup ?

4.How much  it costs or free ?

5.software requirements

6.Rules and regulation :)

I will update details related to above questions in my up comming posts. So stay tuned.

how to upload more than 2gb file using php

How to upload file more than 2gb using php? using php !? am I crazy .. that too using shared hosting :))). php as far as I know is not not at all good choice for handling file uploads that too in shared hosting. Many restrictions from webhosting providers.

CGI/perl is excellent choice for handling file uploads where you can by pass all php based restrictions. So now lets come to my case.

I need to arrange a way for my client to upload more than 2Gb file using web interface that too using php. Searched a lot ! at last i got thin upload

Wonderful script, with dual interface (cgi,php). I tried demo and it worked like anything ;)

working intel sata drivers for virtaulbox guest windows xp sp2

So basically my question is – how to install windows xp sp2 guest in virtual box with sata disk ? here is the solution.

Got working sata drivers for windows xp guest os on virtualbox . I am trying to install windows xp sp2 guest on my virtual box host. From internet I learnt that using virtualbox virtaul sata support – can reduce load on host pc.

So I enabled sata controller and and attached virtual hard disk to it. Problem started as windows xp sp2 failed to accept sata disk( I know sp3 will support or we can make xp iso with sata drivers built in but i want to install sp2 only) .

So from intel site downloaded intel matrix raid drivers and made img file as I mentioned in my previous post using win image.

Ok , attached virtual floppy to virtual floppy disk to my windows xp sp2 guest and started installation. using f6 key I am able to instruct xp to load sata drivers. BUT still xp sp2 guest failing to accept my sata disk.

upon constant digging i got solution ..i got some hint from google as virtualbox supports perticular version of intel sata drivers. At last I am able to install …how i did .. will be in next post.

Update: you can download working sata drivers floppy image from below link

How to create floppy image file .img files

You can convert files and folders to floppy image format, .img file using winimage software.

Iso files, repsents cd/dvd images in the same way .img files represents floppy disc image.

These floppy image files are very use full in virtualware world. Suppose you want to install third part disk drivers or device drivers
at the time os install and you host pc don’t have floppy drive. Simply create img file using winimage software and connect virtual floopy drive to virtual pc.

Recently while I am installing virtualbox with xp as guest. I want to install sata drivers for that i need to insert sata drivers floppy while installing by pressing f6 key. There is no floppy disk avaialble on my hosy pc. So i made .img using winimage and mounted using virtualbox as virtual floppy
