  • How to copy a folder from /home/kevin to /opt

    - by lambda23
    I have a new computer installed with Ubuntu 12.04. Then I want to install wireless driver named compat-wireless-3.5-3. Before that, the driver folder to /home/kevin. I want to install it on /opt directory. Before install the driver, i want to copy the driver folder from /home/kevin to /opt. I try to use ordinary copy (Right Click Copy Paste), but the paste is blured. After that, i tried using this on terminal: sudo cp /home/kevin/compat-wireless-3.5-3 /opt But i get this command: cp: omitting directory `home/kevin/compat-wireless-3.5-3' What does the command mean? I can't copy the driver until now.

  • Why We Write #6-An Interview with Kevin Kline

    - by drsql
    Wow, so far in this series, I have interviewed some very good friends, and some truly excellent writers (and usually both), but today, following on the heels of Jason Strate , we are going to hit someone whose name is synonymous with community, a person who really needs no introduction. According to Bing, Kevin Kline ( @kekline ) is the most important Kevin Kline on Twitter (though it clearly could be due to my typical searches, I am giving him the benefit of the doubt… here try it yourself: http://www.bing.com/search?q=kevin+kline+twitter...(read more)

  • SQLBeat Podcast – Episode 5 – Kevin Kline Talks With Me About SQL, Professional Development and Book Writin’

    - by SQLBeat
    I thought I would be a ball of intimated nerves when Kevin gladly agreed to speak with me on the podcast this past weekend.  After all, he is Kevin Kline of SQL in a Nutshell fame! As it turned out,  we had a comfortable and enlightening conversation on Apple MacBooks (is that what they are called?), our beginnings in the indistry, the Deep South, health care intiatives and 286′s. I almost pulled the plug when Kevin started down the Oracle path though, and for a moment he looked at me as if I was serious. As always on this podcast, it is all in good fun. The picture is of Kevin and I ( my shirt is mauve not pink by the way) at the after party for SQL Saturday 151 in Orlando, FL where he also did a Pre-Con to a sold out crowd of enthusiastic DBAs. I know they were enthusiastic even though I was not there because one of the attendees was a friend of mine who went on and on and on about the content, kind of like I am doing here.  So I will just stop that and let you proceed to listen. As always, I hope you enjoy and any feedback on this or future episodes is always welcome. Download the MP3

  • Eclipse dissapears when minimized and will not come back (12.04 Unity)

    - by Kevin
    I have Ubuntu 12.04 x64 running Unity3d. I downloaded Eclipse from eclipse.org (not the software center) and created a desktop using gnome-desktop-item-edit. The resulting file is below, and I added it to the launcher on the left of the screen by dragging that file on. #!/usr/bin/env xdg-open [Desktop Entry] Version=1.0 Type=Application Terminal=false Icon[en_US]=/home/kevin/eclipse/icon.xpm Name[en_US]=Eclipse Exec=/home/kevin/eclipse/eclipse Name=Eclipse Icon=/home/kevin/eclipse/icon.xpm#!/usr/bin/env xdg-open However, when I minimize eclipse, eclipse disappears. There is no arrow to the left of the icon in the launcher like usual. And when I click on the launcher again, it tries to relaunch eclipse instead of bringing back the one that was minimized. Eclipse also does not show up when I alt-tab. I know it is still running because I can see it running with the system monitor. Note that Eclipse works properly until it is minimized. I have observed this behavior on two different computers now. Does anyone know how to fix it?

  • is there any easy way to auto generated code like this?

    - by Kevin Yang
    i have a file which will be used across many app projects. the only difference of these files is the webserice referrence name. code like this: public void Test(){ Kevin.ServiceReference1.Service1Client client = new Kevin.ServiceReference1.Service1Client(); // do something.... } like code above, the 'Kevin.ServiceReference1' will be replace by specified app project namespace. so, according to DRY(dont repeat yourself), i shouldn't just copy the file to many projects and rename the specified part manually. is there any way i can easily replace some parts of my template file to something related to the project?

  • VirtualHosts Stopped Working

    - by Kevin C.
    I'm working on a website and have WAMP setup for local testing. Usually I set up virtual hosts using httpd-vhosts + the hosts file without a hitch. All of a sudden, my virtual hosts are no longer working. I know that it's pointing to Apache because I get a '403 Forbidden' error, but that's about it. All of my previously working virtual hosts no longer work as well. Anybody know what's going on? httpd-vhosts.conf <VirtualHost *:80> ServerAdmin [email protected] DocumentRoot "C:\Documents and Settings\kevin\Desktop\websites\fusion" ServerName ebrochures ErrorLog "logs/your_own-error.log" CustomLog "logs/your_own-access.log" common <directory "C:\Documents and Settings\kevin\Desktop\websites\fusion"> Options Indexes FollowSymLinks AllowOverride all Order Deny,Allow Deny from all Allow from 127.0.0.1 </directory> hosts file: 127.0.0.1 fusion And yes, I am including the virtual hosts file in my httpd.conf file: # Virtual hosts Include conf/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf

  • How to make software development decisions based on facts

    - by Laila
    We love to hear stories about the many and varied ways our customers use the tools that we develop, but in our earnest search for stories and feedback, we'd rather forgotten that some of our keenest users are fellow RedGaters, in the same building. It was almost by chance that we discovered how the SQL Source Control team were using SmartAssembly. As it happens, there is a separate account (here on Simple-Talk) of how SmartAssembly was used to support the Early Access program; by providing answers to specific questions about how the SQL Source Control product was used. But what really got us all grinning was how valuable the SQL Source Control team found the reports that SmartAssembly was quickly and painlessly providing. So gather round, my friends, and I'll tell you the Tale Of The Framework Upgrade . <strange mirage effect to denote a flashback. A subtle background string of music starts playing in minor key> Kevin and his team were undecided. They weren't sure whether they could move their software product from .NET 2 to .NET 3.5 , let alone to .NET 4. You see, they were faced with having to guess what version of .NET was already installed on the average user's machine, which I'm sure you'll agree is no easy task. Upgrading their code to .NET 3.5 might put a barrier to people trying the tool, which was the last thing Kevin wanted: "what if our users have to download X, Y, and Z before being able to open the application?" he asked. That fear of users having to do half an hour of downloads (.followed by at least ten minutes of installation. followed by a five minute restart) meant that Kevin's team couldn't take advantage of WCF (Windows Communication Foundation). This made them sad, because WCF would have allowed them to write their code in a much simpler way, and in hours instead of days (as was the case with .NET 2). Oh sure, they had a gut feeling that this probably wasn't the case, 3.5 had been out for so many years, but they weren't sure. <background music switches to major key> SmartAssembly Feature Usage Reporting gave Kevin and his team exactly what they needed: hard data on their users' systems, both hardware and software. I was there, I saw it happen, and that's not the sort of thing a woman quickly forgets. I'll always remember his last words (before he went to lunch): "You get lots of free information by just checking a box in SmartAssembly" is what he said. For example, they could see how many CPU cores their customers were using, and found out that they should be making use of parallelism to take advantage of available cores. But crucially, (and this is the moral of my tale, dear reader), Kevin saw that 99% of SQL Source Control's users were on .NET 3.5 or above.   So he knew that they could make the switch and that is was safe to do so. With this reassurance, they could use WCF to not only make development easier, but to also give them a really nice way to do inter-process communication between the Source Control and the SQL Compare products. To have done that on .NET 2.0 was certainly possible <knowing chuckle>, but Microsoft have made it a lot easier with WCF. <strange mirage effect to denote end of flashback> So you see, with Feature Usage Reporting, they finally got the hard evidence they needed to safely make the switch to .NET 3.5, knowing it would not inconvenience their users. And that, my friends, is just the sort of thing we like to hear.

    I don't understand what this order_by clause is doing and whether I need it or not: select c.customerid, c.firstname, c.lastname, i.order_date, i.item, i.price from items_ordered i, customers c where i.customerid = c.customerid group by c.customerid, i.item, i.order_date order by i.order_date desc; This produces this data: 10330 Shawn Dalton 30-Jun-1999 Pogo stick 28.00 10101 John Gray 30-Jun-1999 Raft 58.00 10410 Mary Ann Howell 30-Jan-2000 Unicycle 192.50 10101 John Gray 30-Dec-1999 Hoola Hoop 14.75 10449 Isabela Moore 29-Feb-2000 Flashlight 4.50 10410 Mary Ann Howell 28-Oct-1999 Sleeping Bag 89.22 10339 Anthony Sanchez 27-Jul-1999 Umbrella 4.50 10449 Isabela Moore 22-Dec-1999 Canoe 280.00 10298 Leroy Brown 19-Sep-1999 Lantern 29.00 10449 Isabela Moore 19-Mar-2000 Canoe paddle 40.00 10413 Donald Davids 19-Jan-2000 Lawnchair 32.00 10330 Shawn Dalton 19-Apr-2000 Shovel 16.75 10439 Conrad Giles 18-Sep-1999 Tent 88.00 10298 Leroy Brown 18-Mar-2000 Pocket Knife 22.38 10299 Elroy Keller 18-Jan-2000 Inflatable Mattress 38.00 10438 Kevin Smith 18-Jan-2000 Tent 79.99 10101 John Gray 18-Aug-1999 Rain Coat 18.30 10449 Isabela Moore 15-Dec-1999 Bicycle 380.50 10439 Conrad Giles 14-Aug-1999 Ski Poles 25.50 10449 Isabela Moore 13-Aug-1999 Unicycle 180.79 10101 John Gray 08-Mar-2000 Sleeping Bag 88.70 10299 Elroy Keller 06-Jul-1999 Parachute 1250.00 10438 Kevin Smith 02-Nov-1999 Pillow 8.50 10101 John Gray 02-Jan-2000 Lantern 16.00 10315 Lisa Jones 02-Feb-2000 Compass 8.00 10449 Isabela Moore 01-Sep-1999 Snow Shoes 45.00 10438 Kevin Smith 01-Nov-1999 Umbrella 6.75 10298 Leroy Brown 01-Jul-1999 Skateboard 33.00 10101 John Gray 01-Jul-1999 Life Vest 125.00 10330 Shawn Dalton 01-Jan-2000 Flashlight 28.00 10298 Leroy Brown 01-Dec-1999 Helmet 22.00 10298 Leroy Brown 01-Apr-2000 Ear Muffs 12.50 While if I remove the order_by clause completely, as in this query: select c.customerid, c.firstname, c.lastname, i.order_date, i.item, i.price from items_ordered i, customers c where i.customerid = c.customerid group by c.customerid, i.item, i.order_date; I get these results: 10101 John Gray 30-Dec-1999 Hoola Hoop 14.75 10101 John Gray 02-Jan-2000 Lantern 16.00 10101 John Gray 01-Jul-1999 Life Vest 125.00 10101 John Gray 30-Jun-1999 Raft 58.00 10101 John Gray 18-Aug-1999 Rain Coat 18.30 10101 John Gray 08-Mar-2000 Sleeping Bag 88.70 10298 Leroy Brown 01-Apr-2000 Ear Muffs 12.50 10298 Leroy Brown 01-Dec-1999 Helmet 22.00 10298 Leroy Brown 19-Sep-1999 Lantern 29.00 10298 Leroy Brown 18-Mar-2000 Pocket Knife 22.38 10298 Leroy Brown 01-Jul-1999 Skateboard 33.00 10299 Elroy Keller 18-Jan-2000 Inflatable Mattress 38.00 10299 Elroy Keller 06-Jul-1999 Parachute 1250.00 10315 Lisa Jones 02-Feb-2000 Compass 8.00 10330 Shawn Dalton 01-Jan-2000 Flashlight 28.00 10330 Shawn Dalton 30-Jun-1999 Pogo stick 28.00 10330 Shawn Dalton 19-Apr-2000 Shovel 16.75 10339 Anthony Sanchez 27-Jul-1999 Umbrella 4.50 10410 Mary Ann Howell 28-Oct-1999 Sleeping Bag 89.22 10410 Mary Ann Howell 30-Jan-2000 Unicycle 192.50 10413 Donald Davids 19-Jan-2000 Lawnchair 32.00 10438 Kevin Smith 02-Nov-1999 Pillow 8.50 10438 Kevin Smith 18-Jan-2000 Tent 79.99 10438 Kevin Smith 01-Nov-1999 Umbrella 6.75 10439 Conrad Giles 14-Aug-1999 Ski Poles 25.50 10439 Conrad Giles 18-Sep-1999 Tent 88.00 10449 Isabela Moore 15-Dec-1999 Bicycle 380.50 10449 Isabela Moore 22-Dec-1999 Canoe 280.00 10449 Isabela Moore 19-Mar-2000 Canoe paddle 40.00 10449 Isabela Moore 29-Feb-2000 Flashlight 4.50 10449 Isabela Moore 01-Sep-1999 Snow Shoes 45.00 10449 Isabela Moore 13-Aug-1999 Unicycle 180.79 I'm not sure what the order_by is doing here and if it's having the intended effects.

  • Chicago SQL Saturday

    - by Johnm
    This past Saturday, April 17, 2010, I journeyed North to the great city of Chicago for some SQL Server fun, learning and fellowship. The Chicago edition of this grassroots phenomenon was the 31st scheduled SQL Saturday since the program's birth in late 2007. The Chicago SQL Saturday consisted of four tracks with eight sessions each and was a very energetic and fast paced day for the 300+/- SQL Server enthusiasts in attendance. The speaker line up included national notables such as Kevin Kline, Brent Ozar, and Brad McGehee. My hometown of Indianapolis was well represented in the speaker line up with Arie Jones, Aaron King and Derek Comingore. The day began with a very humorous keynote by Kevin Kline and Brent Ozar who emphasized the importance of community events such as SQL Saturday and the monthly user group meetings. They also brilliantly included the impact that getting involved in the SQL community through social media can have on your professional career. My approach to the day was to try to experience as much of the event as I could, so there were very few sessions that I attended for their full duration. I leaped from session to session like a bumble bee, gleaning bits of nectar from each session. Amid these leaps I took the opportunity to briefly chat with some of the in-the-queue speakers as well as other attendees that wondered the hallways. I especially enjoyed a great discussion with Devin Knight about his plans regarding the upcoming Jacksonville SQL Saturday as well as an interesting SQL interpretation of the Iron Chef, which I think would catch on like wild-fire. There were two sessions that stood out as exceptional. So much so that I could not pull myself away: Kevin Kline presented on "SQL Server Internals and Architecture". This session could have been classified as one that is intended for the beginner. Kevin even personally warned me of such as I entered the room. I am a believer in revisiting the basics regardless of the level of your mastery, so I entered into this session in that spirit. It was a very clear and precise presentation. Masterfully illustrated and demonstrated. Brad McGehee presented on "How and When to Use Indexed Views". This was a topic that I was recently exploring and was considering to for use in an integration project. Brad effectively communicated the complexity of this feature and what is involved to gain their full benefit. It was clear at the conclusion of this session that it was not the right feature for my specific needs. Overall, the event was a great success. The use of volunteers, from an attendee's perspective was masterful. The only recommendation that I would have for the next Chicago SQL Saturday would be to include more time in between sessions to permit some level of networking among the attendees, one-on-one questions for speakers and visits to the sponsor booths. Congratulations to Wendy Pastrick, Ted Krueger, and Aaron Lowe for their efforts and a very successful SQL Saturday!

  • SQLCruise Alaska was Amazing

    - by AllenMWhite
    You'd think that providing in-depth SQL Server training on a cruise ship would be an excuse for a vacation disguised as a business trip, but you'd be wrong. This past week I traveled with the founders of SQLCruise, Tim Ford and Brent Ozar , along with other top professionals in the SQL Server world - Jeremiah Peschka , Kendra Little , Kevin Kline and Robert Davis - and me. The week began with Brent presenting a session on Plan Cache Analysis, which I plan to start using very soon. After Brent, Kevin...(read more)

  • How do I get my Canon MF4410 printer to work in Ubuntu 12.04?

    - by Kevin
    I have a Canon i-sensys MF4410 laser printer. I am running a dual boot system with Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.04. The printer works in Windows and Ubuntu sees it when I attempt to add a new printer but I cannot get it to work in Ubuntu. (It previously worked fine under Ubuntu 8.?) I have tried installing (and un-installing) the driver cque-en but, although Ubuntu sees the printer, it does not find the driver. I have even tried using the generic laser and 'text only' drivers but these do not work. If anyone can help and it requires using terminal please give detailed instructions. Thanks Kevin

  • Determine web page draw time via a program

    - by Kevin Burke
    Google Chrome has a nice tool to determine the time the page begins drawing, in the Network tab in Developer Tools. Similarly sites like webpagetest.org can tell you the draw time and give you the whole waterfall of page loads for a given web page. I was wondering if I could automate the process of finding the time it took to the first page draw, for all of the pages on my site, so I can share this data within my company. Obviously the page draw time will depend on the latency and throughput of your connection, but I'm more concerned with the relative data about pages on our site. Can I get this data from Selenium or another tool? Thanks, Kevin

  • Mobile redirect strategy

    - by Kevin
    Looking for help on deciding how to redirect users to a mobile optimized version of my site (m.mysite.com). Looking at two methods: Server configuration (.htaccess or even varnish) Webapp (php) The problem I see with #1 is with the "view full site" link on the mobile site. If a user clicks that link and they go to mysite.com won't the server just redirect them back to m.mysite.com? For #2 I could create a cookie that is checked in addition to the user agent. Any suggestions/comments? Is there a better way to "remember" if the user clicked "visit full site"? Thanks, Kevin

  • What does this ssh error mean?

    - by kevin
    This is my last resort. I've been trying to figure out the problem here for hours. Here's the deal: I have copied my private key from machine #1 onto machine #2. Machine #1 is able to connect via ssh to a server with my public key just fine, but machine #2 gives the following output, when trying to connect to the server: $ ssh -vvv -i /home/kevin/.ssh/kev_rsa [email protected] -p 22312 OpenSSH_5.3p1 Debian-3ubuntu6, OpenSSL 0.9.8k 25 Mar 2009 debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh/ssh_config debug1: Applying options for * debug2: ssh_connect: needpriv 0 debug1: Connecting to 192.168.1.244 [192.168.1.244] port 22312. debug1: Connection established. debug3: Not a RSA1 key file /home/kevin/.ssh/kev_rsa. debug2: key_type_from_name: unknown key type '-----BEGIN' debug3: key_read: missing keytype debug3: key_read: missing whitespace debug3: key_read: missing whitespace debug3: key_read: missing whitespace debug3: key_read: missing whitespace ... Permission denied (publickey). There is obviously more debug output that I have omitted, and I can provide upon request. I am convinced however that it doesn't like my private key file. I also had a suspicion that it has to do with how I copied it from machine #1 to machine #2. I copy/pasted the text from the private key onto a flash drive. This might be the problem, however, when I duplicated this method on another working private key file, and did a diff on the original, to the copy/pasted one, they are identical. I've been struggling with this. If I could just get a little more information on why it doesn't like my key, I could fix it I'm sure. Anyone have any ideas on this? Is there some meta-data somewhere that tells ssh that a file is in fact an RSA key?

  • redirect to a route alias on a form validation error

    - by Kevin Monk
    If I'm on a route alias such as /register and I have a form error and I render :new, is it possible for the path to be /register still? At the moment it is rendering /new I could do a redirect_to register_path but then I would lose the params? It's making the following test fail: Scenario: Try registering with a bad staff number Given I am on the registration page When I fill in "email" with "[email protected]" And I fill in "First Name" with "Kevin" And I fill in "last name" with "Monk" And I fill in "Employee Number" with "something barking123" And I press "Register" Then I should be on the registration page And I should see "Your employee ID number looks incorrect."
