O tempore, o mores!
Hello there eveyone with a nice workstation!
This one was really nice!
As the title tells, i’m going to discuss the course in the title after it has finished a long long time ago…
The course was completely about relational databases and the RDBMS used was Oracle with APEX interface. I goddamn hate the APEX PL/SQL statement builder, you can not create multiple statements in one go, but you need to always create single statements and run them one by one. Well, the forms APEX creates are not too pretty either, but they work.
I learned SQL the next time this time, I had already taken the online SQL-course, which is part of the whole course, once and even remembered some of it from before :D
So, the course and the homework was mostly nice, consisting of creating ER- and relational diagrams, learning the difference in small way between relational, object-oriented and network models and then some. I already have forgotten exactly what was taught :p Anyways again, the main point was in relational model.
The final work for the course was to create an free of choise APEX application with at least three forms and two tables. I created a LAN design application with endpoints (workstations, servers or some kind of mobile devices), routers and then the networks which were connected the way needed, having a router id to network id connection. My work started to seem like it will never be ready, as i made a mistake of not noticing it was indeed ready :D Well, i finished the work the same morning that i had to return it to the assessor at midday.
Finally, i got a decent 3/5 from the course, not excellent, but good (pun intended) enough :) I enjoyed the course and it was educating, the professor was quite good at what he did and he also seemed to be a nice person easy to take contact to.
P.S. I wish i could elaborate more on the course, but it’s been a while since it ended (about a year :D)…
Hello, my fine fellow druges or WTF!
So, those lethe.bsdaddict.org sites have not been in place for a long time… this means I don’t have a Finnish language blog anymore and intend not to get one either.
There’s Lethe, which is just a toy site on a measly 486SX with minimal
old NetBSD 2.0_RC4 install.
Maybe I’ll someday make something with my other home server and publish some bullshit there too, who knows and even more, who cares :D. That new host might be
petos.themafia.info, which points to Lethe at the moment.
Well, I should post something about the “Information Management”-course, but we’ll see when I’m up to it. It was an interesting course for sure, but more on it later.
Don’t expect me to post anything anytime soon now, you all oh, so enthusiastic fans of mine!
Heh yeah! :D
I got this Smok Tumbler clearomizer by mail today and I was in a hurry to try it. I also bought some 1.5Ω replacement heads for it and my first task was to switch the original 1.8Ω head with one of those lower resistance ones (I’ll keep the higher resistance heads as backup).
The flavor from this quite cheap device was amazing compared to my trusted Smok Ego Mega Dual Coil Cartomizers (EMDCC’s)! I didn’t expect this much of a difference in flavor from this device, but it is really better, a clearer taste than from anything I have tested before (well, just Ego-t atomizers, Boge cartomizers and EMDCC’s). This thing works just great with the Ego or Kgo batteries, no need for fancy mods or batteries.
If you are an Ego-style battery user, then go ahead and try this device, it really impressed me in a short while. Still, I have to see how long a single head will last, I’d hope at least a week or two, two to be on the better side as my EMDCC’s last from two weeks to a month (even though the heads to this device are cheaper than EMDCC’s)…
Sweet, I think this is a keeper! :D
Okay, a post after a long pause :)
This time I’m positively surprised by the new OS X 10.9 Mavericks. In my previous post i screamed about 10.6 Snow Leopard swapping like hell and now after three days uptime with 10.9 Mavericks I see no same kind of mad swapping as with 10.6!
Of course this is not an uptime to brag about, but it’s still showing no problems with swapper, the current swap is 1.0GB and the used swap space is between 170GB and at current 211GB. The used swap space doesn’t only increase by time, it also decreases sometimes…
Also the inactive memory is smaller now, it comes close to 500MB at it’s lowest. This all is good news for me, and hopefully everyone using OS X 10.9 Mavericks as a heavy duty workstation OS. I will be watching how memory usage goes about with increasing uptime…
By the way, I’m going to increase my RAM from this measly 4GB to 16GB later this month, so there might be a post after that to see how my workhorse MacBook Pro and Mavericks works after that…
Thanks Apple for making an at least at first glance a great free operating system upgrade! :D
