The HDD of our server is broken and I almost lost all my data. The failing drive is the OS drive, not the data drive and ,yes, I set up raid5 on my server but I forgot to put MySQL data directory (/var/lib/mysql) into the raid array (still keeping it on the OS Drive).

Windows Media Player 11 in Delphi

Posted on: Wed, 06/25/2008 - 17:31 By: dae

Currently, I am working on a Delphi project that requires movie playing in the application. Obviously, the direct approach is to use the Windows Media Player ActiveX. However, when I imported the active X and try to resizing it at runtime, strange behavior starts to happen: the control does not obey my command. After googling around, it is that I have to directly call the SetObjectRects method directly. This could be done by the following codes.

Delphi Plugin

I have been stuck with Delphi 7 for a long time. It seems like most people still do the same. Say, why should we upgrade? Since D7 itself is a very good tools. Most ppl skip Delphi 8, 2005 and 2006. Now, for the CodeGear version, it is really nice. It packs a lots of new feature that an IDE should have, refactoring, smart editing, visual guide, etc. I have a pretty good reason to upgrade to Delphi 2007. However, when I tried doing so, its turn out that CodeRush is not available for Delphi 2007.

Back Online

OK, true hispeed are good. Wait. Might correctly say that they live up and beyond my expectation. Really, I have to call them the third time to have the problem fixed. The first two result in some action but futile. At the third, they actually come to my home (again) and check almost everything. Anyway, they don't really know what happen so they just change the line from the center (somewhere around 1km from my home) to the pole in front of my house. No charge, and I am happily online.

PS. Start being a twitter-er. Let's see what it can do.

No Connectivity

The internet at my home is down now. Called true twice but the technician who visit my home says that it is the problem of wiring (inside my home) and he can't do anything about it so I will try to fix it myself.

Will post any update soon.

Luckily, Chanon approach romerun, the former owner of and have it transfer to him. Now, planet cp24 is back online.

Big thanks to chanon and romerun.

Finalizing the upgrade to 6.2

Posted on: Mon, 04/21/2008 - 10:37 By: dae

I was very busy since the last upgrade to 6.0 which was not quite completed yet. The worst is that I forgot to put CHAPTCHA on a forum and everybody can immediately tell what was bounded to happen. Lots of spams are in the forum now and I have to clean all that up very soon. I just manage to have some free time finally to tidy things up on my home page. Now it is running drupal 6.2 and, in the case that you might not notice, the theme is changed again.

Win + Key problems in Fedora Core 6

Posted on: Thu, 12/06/2007 - 16:27 By: dae

Quick words, I am having problem with the Win Key in Linux; Cannot use it with other key combination to make a keyboard short cut. For example, I wish to open Konqueror by pressing Win+E (just to resemble openning windows explorer) but KDE won't accept it. When I press Win+E, KDE recognized it as just "E".

Googling around and the solution is simply to put this option in /etc/X11/xorg.conf in the InputDevice Section
