Google Plus or Face Book?







Recently the Big brother of the internet (Google) unveils its new social network Plus. There has been many discussions and argues formed whether Google plus is better than the good old social network Face Book. Me too joined Plus from an invitation of my friend. I have been using Face Book and Twitter for nearly 3 years now. I found Plus really competitive and stable than Face Book. This doesn’t mean that I have not been among the Face Book addicted web junkies out there. But I found Face Book quite unsecure space on the internet not only because Google search list “How to hack Face Book ?” first when we type only “How to…” on its search bar.

Lot of my friends Face Book accounts were hacked throughout these years. Fortunately I couldn’t be a victim yet. :D

And as we all know the stupid applications on Face Book cause serious privacy breach since they could access all our data on Face Book. I never found any of those applications cool, I don’t know why my friends like stupid apps such as Farm Ville, I hate when they send me app requests. :P

I find much more control over the things I share with people on Plus, since we can add the people to share with right at the bottom of status update bar. It’s kind of cool. We don’t need to create specific groups as in Face Book, instead we can create Circles on our own adding people into them. So that we can share anything with only the people we want, not with all in our friend lists.

And Plus provides https:// connectivity in order of http://, which enables encrypted communication. Though it’s really hard to get away from Face Book I prefer choosing Plus over Face Book cause I find Plus much cooler and flexible.

How Plus differs from Face Book: Fun

Still Plus is on its Trial version, I believe it’ll rise and shine more when it launches officially.

Plus also provides Sparks: where we can chat with things we like, with anyone over the internet who likes the same. Which is like Trends on Twitter.

Hangouts: where we can have group video chat which is kind of cool, while Face Book comes up with video chat with the help of Skype after long talks. :)
Google has a good album management feature called Picasa , Since Plus using it the photo management will be much better than in Face Book.

There are so many reasons why Plus is better than Face Book.

And more......

If you think Google is lying search on Duck Duck Go :D




Will Zuckerberg loose the fight with Google?

Since some people still cannot get their ass off Face Book cause of it’s stupid time wasting games and Blue theme he will be fooling them for some time. For now he is the most followed person on Google Plus. :)

Some people cannot stand for the simple and serene White theme of Plus. May be Google might change its theme on the launch or not.


Face Book fans try Lame Book too, It’s kinda funny. :)

If you are a person who doesn’t like social networking, but still like to be in touch with your nerds, Plus will be the best. Lot of my geeky friends who deactivated their Face Book accounts has joined Plus. It’s your choice after all.

There has been trouble signing up since it’s on Trial version. But now the invitation link is almost permanent.

Wanna try Plus? Get your invitation from a friend who is using Plus or keep you posted until launch via gmail.

Look how Hitler worries for not getting Plus invitation. :)

How to join part files in linux and windows.

Hi guys, after long time thought of compiling a post about something we all need in our day to day life.

Most of my friends ask me every time how to join movie part files. So I thought summing that up will be useful for those who need guidance.

Many movie download sites, forums now upload movies as part files. Since it's easy to upload smaller size parts than larger files. Not only movies, some softwares and games too come in part files. Since I prefer direct download than torrents I dedicate this to all my direct download fans out there.


There are many video formats exist on line as mkv, mp4, avi, rmvb..etc. I prefer mkv much since it supports small size and high quality.

Part files can be found as .001-00* or part1.rar-part*.rar format.

ex-

avatar.mkv.001.....004

avatar.avi.001....004

or

avatar.part1.rar....part4.rar


these files can be split to many number of parts, not only 4. :)


In windows


If it's a rar file you can use WinRAR

or 7-Zip to join them.


If it's a .001 file you can use HJ-Split to join them.



make sure all your part files exist in the same folder.


In linux


If it's a rar file you can simply wright click and choose “extract to”. Then it will extract them into a single file.

Or you can use 7-Zip to join them.


If it's a .001 file -

if you are a command line addict you can use your terminal to join them. :)

ex-

cat avatar.mkv.00* > avatar.mkv


or


you can install lx-split (a command line tool) to join files.


or if you like GUI much then you can install HJ-Split for linux.


make sure all your part files exist in the same folder.


Enjoy joining part files. :)

If there's any doubt do not hesitate to ask me.


Adios....

Oracle Unveils Exalogic Elastic Cloud....


The World’s Only Integrated Middleware Machine Delivers Unprecedented Java Application Performance
ORACLE OPENWORLD, SAN FRANCISCO – Sept. 19, 2010

The world’s first integrated middleware machine, Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud, was announced at Oracle OpenWorld 2010 by Oracle Chief Executive Officer, Larry Ellison.

Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud is an integrated hardware and software system engineered, tested, and tuned by Oracle to run Java and non-Java applications with extreme performance. The machine provides a complete cloud application infrastructure, consolidating the widest possible range of Java and non-Java application types and workloads and meeting the most demanding service-level requirements.

“Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud is a complete system of servers, network, storage, VM, operating system and middleware, all engineered to work together,” said Oracle CEO Larry Ellison. “This delivers stunning results, including the fastest Java performance, elastic capacity on demand and a completely fault tolerant system.”

Building on the success of the Oracle Exadata Database Machine, Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud combines cutting-edge 64-bit x86 processors, an InfiniBand-based I/O fabric and solid-state storage with the market-leading Oracle WebLogic Server, other enterprise Java Oracle middleware products and a choice of Oracle Solaris or Oracle Linux operating system software.
The software has been tuned to exploit the I/O fabric in the Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud machine in order to deliver performance results 10x better than a standard application server configuration.

Engineered for large-scale, mission-critical deployments, Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud provides the foundation for enterprise-class multi-tenancy or cloud applications. It can support thousands of applications with differing security, reliability, and performance requirements – making it an ideal platform for enterprise-wide data center consolidation.

Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud accelerates the performance of the entire Oracle Fusion Middleware product portfolio and also increases the performance of applications running on Oracle WebLogic Server with either Oracle Linux or Oracle Solaris 11. The machine is also optimized for integration with Oracle Database 11g, Oracle Real Application Clusters and the Oracle Exadata Database Machine.

Any Oracle Applications including: the Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle’s Siebel CRM, Oracle’s PeopleSoft Enterprise, Oracle’s JD Edwards and Oracle’s industry specific business applications will run on Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud transparently, without needing any modifications.

Integrated System
Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud comprises the latest high performance x86 hardware, the industry-leading Oracle WebLogic Server, and Exalogic software, all engineered by Oracle for maximum capability with minimum set-up. It is assembled, tested and tuned at the factory to dramatically reduce the time from machine delivery to fully operational application deployment.
Extreme Java Performance
Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud offers unmatched performance and reliability for Java applications.

In Oracle’s internal testing one rack of Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud demonstrated:

12X improvement for Internet applications, to over 1 Million HTTP requests per second.

4.5X improvement for Java messaging applications, to over 1.8 Million messages per second.

The InfiniBand-based I/O fabric, builds on the unmatched raw I/O performance of native InfiniBand, implementing a new architecture for parallel I/O, multi-core processor efficiency and optimization of the Java I/O stack.

Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud is a Java application consolidation platform capable of serving the workloads of the entire enterprise--from small departmental applications to mission–critical enterprise resource planning infrastructures to re-hosted mainframe applications.

The GridLink for Exadata feature provides ultra-reliable and high-performance database integration, enabling instantaneous JDBC connection failover and transaction affinity between Oracle WebLogic Server running on Exalogic and Oracle Real Application Clusters running on an Oracle Exadata Database Machine.

Mission-Critical Applications

Exalogic’s I/O fabric technology enables a high level of fault tolerance with near-instant failover and 100% isolation of applications, allowing enterprises to consolidate numerous mission-critical applications on a single system with extremely low risk.

sun in to oracle

Ok guys I am back in the new year. This is gonna be a tough year for me with my uni last year studies.
Recently I got the news of purchasing sun Microsystems by Oracle.
And I checked the sun official site today. whoa...
it takes me to oracle official site. well no harm done yet for java.
since java development base is still there, but under oracle.

In the eye of SUN lovers (most of java lovers) might be desperate of the sudden change.
Oracle says that they completed the acquisition of sun Microsystems.
You can read the benefits here.

Read the press release here.

I wish that oracle will continue the java development carried by sun, like NetBeans and virtualBox .

well lets hope for the best.


~love java~
