Of scratchbox, stupidity and empty cpu transparency list!

Submitted by msameer on Tue, 20/03/2007 - 1:41pm

OK. Here we go:

To select a devkit when you are setting up a scratchbox target via sb-menu, the target MUST NOT BE in the list for it to be selected (Pressing Enter should remove it from the list for it to be active!!!).

And I had to spend days wondering why is the cpu-transparency list empty even though the cputransp devkit is there in the devkits selection menu!

/me is really pissed off.


So yesterday.

* A month since I've been here in Finland and started working for Nokia
* I've got my creditcard PIN code in the morning (From the nordea bank suckers). At last they accepted my application but they decided to send the card to the wrong branch. 7 minutes on the phone to convince them to send it to another branch. It takes them also 2-3 days to send it to another branch!
* My debian.org account has been created and NOW I'm at last an official Debian Developer (Technically, this happened on the 14th. An hour ago ;-))

The drupal database optimization day.

Submitted by msameer on Wed, 22/11/2006 - 3:07pm

The server was really screaming yesterday. I was trying to understand why.
I thought it was the aggregator module. I did some profiling for the aggregator SQL queries and while I'm at it, I did the same for some other modules and here we go: Here, here, here and here.
I'll be applying them too to the drupal sites I'm hosting whether they like it or not!
