Sunt unul din primii cititori hotnews, inca de pe vremea cand erau RevistaPresei.ro. In ultima vreme au angajat o multime de colabori care incearca sa tina site-ul in fruntea listei site-urilor stiri. Din pacate calitatea acestora lasa de multe ori de dorit, si personal am inceput sa caut si alte surse de informare.

Buffon scapa de Buffon

Un exemplu este formularea: “Buffon salveaza incredibil din fata lui Buffon, scapat singur cu italianul“. Eram intr-un aeroport si asta era modalitatea mea de a fi la curent cu meciul impotriva Italiei. Cred ca din cauza exprimarii a ratat Mutu penalty-ul, pur si simplu nu a mai inteles cine cu cine joaca.

Hai Romania!

Mintemail.com

Most of the websites that are offering something for download are asking for an email address. Of course, nobody want to get spammed and I am putting a@a.com almost all the time.
But what if a code or a link is sent to the email address? Then you need a real one. Giving your primary address means a good chance to get spammed. You need a temporary email address, which is automatically deleted after a while.
This is exactly what MintEmail is doing: offering you a 4-hours email address, accessible in several ways, with the possibility of increase the lifetime and much more features you can discover on their website.

SQL Developer 1.5.1

Starting with 9th of June, a new version of SQL Developer was launched. This is more a patchset to previous version, solving a significant number of bugs.
I am very happy that the “Bug 6994152: ORACLE_HOME environment variable sometimes has an adverse affect on migrations” was solved, this being a very frequent topic on the migration forum. Now there is no need to create the .CMD file to overwrite ORACLE_HOME.
Another useful and very demanded feature is auto-expand of the connections list when open the tool.

SQL Developer screenshot

Sometimes, upgrading Oracle SQL Developer will not import your existing connections. You can have in the end an empty connection list. In order to import it, you just need to copy the connections.xml file from your old location like this:

"c:\Documents and Settings\[user]\Application Data\SQL Developer\system1.5.0.53.38\
o.jdeveloper.db.connection.11.1.1.0.22.49.35\connections.xml"

to your new location like this:

"c:\Documents and Settings\[user]\Application Data\SQL Developer\system1.5.1.54.40\
o.jdeveloper.db.connection.11.1.1.0.22.49.35\connections.xml"

Another version would be, when upgraded version of SQL Developer is asking for the path to the connections file, just provide him the path to the old version.

Good luck!

Did you ever want to check a website as it was 1 year ago for example? I do want, because lots of websites that I initially developed were redesigned during the years and it was nice to find my work in the archive.
How it’s working? It’s a search engine that takes a snapshot of every website on a regular basis, normally every month.
Where? At: http://web.archive.org

Lots of people are asking me about MPMCostumes.com. They decided to remake the website with their initial partners, even that with my platform they sold more than 20K USD in a few months. Unfortunately on http://web.archive.org the images and flash animations do not appear, but you still can check it as it was 2 years ago.
