Hmm, looks like am an apprentice no longer, but a
I don’t feel any different though
My dia article got destroyed due to me being sloppy with a
tar command, but I learned a hard earned lesson and will
not make that mistake again, on a more positive note my
two-app article goes up on Wednesday this week and I have a
review almost done of CSC Mail.
Sent of interview questions for Sam Lantiga and Joaquin Cuenca
Lot of article ideas and so little time, next week will
probably be mostly spent setting up Oracle Applications 11i
I have also noted that my Linuxpower friends are not very
good at certifying me, except for Julian,
get moving guys :).
I have been wondering how come I managed to always need
so much swap space and why Linux wasn’t as fast as I felt it
should be, and yesterday I finally learned why. I
added a extra memory chip and used the top and free commands
to check that the new memory was in place, to my supprise
only 62 Megs where reported instead of the expected 150 Megs
of Ram. After some testing it seems that Linux always have
just registered 62 M and I had to set up an extra boot
parameter to get the rest. A typical example of being so
sure about what definetly isn’t the problem that you don’t
consider checking it.
