Devils start the season

The Devils have got a great start this season. They have had plenty of injuries, but the younger players have stepped up and played really well.

There have been injuries to Niedermayer, Pandolfo, Oduya, Martin, Elias.

Brodeur keeps breaking the records one by one and is great year after year.

Keep going Devils

Devils are rolling

Hello there!

It's been a while since my last post. The Devils are rolling, the finance market is crashing, GM is soone no more, an many many other things are happening...

The Devils are playing greate hockey and playoffs are closing in.
Brodeur is back and playing well, Thanks Scotty for the a fantastic season!!!!!!

On the job, It's a lot of work with SQL Server. Analysis of server configurations, permofrmance tuning, cluster configurations and many more things are going on with this product right now.

Hey it's fun to work with this product because all the time you notice something new you can do with it.

Last week we configured a database mirroring setup for a customer, and I have never seen a SQL server that handles that many databases.......

Next week I'm going to install a new SQL cluster to a customer, so they can use it and evaluate how it all works, before the put it in production.

Then I'm off to a vacation for 2 weeks to a very sunny place.

Make Firefox faster

Follow these steps if you want Firefox to performe faster

1.Type "about:config" into the address bar and hit return. Scroll down and look for the following entries:

network.http.pipelining network.http.proxy.pipelining network.http.pipelining.maxrequests

Normally the browser will make one request to a web page at a time. When you enable pipelining it will make several at once, which really speeds up page loading.

2. Alter the entries as follows:

Set "network.http.pipelining" to "true"

Set "network.http.proxy.pipelining" to "true"

Set "network.http.pipelining.maxrequests" to some number like 30. This means it will make 30 requests at once.

3. Lastly right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Name it "nglayout.initialpaint.delay" and set its value to "0". This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it recieves.

If you're using a broadband connection you'll load pages MUCH faster now!

Devils Offseason moves

It have started, the Free Agency.

The Devils have signed former Devils players Brian Rolston and Bobby Holik.
Holik got a 1-year 2.5 million contract while Rolston signed for 5-years 20 million.

I think these are goid signings and will fit well with the needs we have.

Before the free agency began, Salvador, Pandlofo, Clarkson and Tallackson where signed on different contracts.

Of these i find Salvadors contract to be quite much money for a defensive defensman just like White's contract. But it's nothing to compare with what Commondore got in his contract. Just plain stupid.

I think the devils are pretty much done with the signings of free agents. There might come some trade that will shake things up, you never now with Lou.

Back again

Now I'm back again, took a long break from this when i have studied for some certifications that went really well.

I'm going to star a new project on monday, where I'm going to build a Windows XP Embedded platform for a big company to use in their stores.
They need it to be a long list of requirements, so it's just to start learning Embedded editon and how you bild a image with drivers and all.

Firefox or IE

I have for a very long time used Firefox, because Firefox has had tabs which i like very much instead of having 6 or 7 windows open. I also hate all these adds and have use adblock to get rid of them. I also used an add on called IE tab, where i can run websites that needs IE, like Outlook web access.

I recently found an add on to IE where I can block ads, and as we know, from IE 7 you can also browse in tabs. Check out IE7Pro

So now i don't know what broswer i should use, it's looking though i'm going to use IE at work for all systems that rely on IE, and thats alot of systems.

At home I'm still going to use Firefox. I like the browser and i'm used to it now.

Devils win both games this weekend

The Devils beat Tampa bay on friday and Toronto on saturday. Both games ended 2-1 with overtime in the Tampa game.

It ws fun to se Parise get nasty with Boyle. It was the first fight for Parise in NHL.
Elias had a big game friday night with a goal and assist.
Paul Martin sat out again, let's hope he will be back soon.

Saturdays game against Toronto, we just got lucky bounces. Toronto hit the post 3 times during the first period, so we should be very happy with this win.

Parise scored the winning goal just under a minute to go in the game.

We have now 3 straight wins and lte's hope the streak continue on tuesday against Montreal.

Devils continue to led the eastern conference 1 point ahead of Montreal and Pittsburgh.

Here arfe some highlights from the games:

Tampa Bay @ Devils

New inventory software

Today I've tested a new inventory system at a customer.
They didn't want to spend any money on this system (thank you open source projects).

So after a a few minutes I installed a software called spiceworks.

I't work fine, and it got what we needed.

Let me know if you have any inventory system that you want to recommend

Create a self signed certificate

During this week I've created a couple of certificates for our webserver.
We have both IIS and apache servers for different systems and their requirements.

If you need a certificate in IIS and don't want to pay a signed certificate from, say Verisign.
All you need to do is to install selfssl from the IIS resource kit on the server where you have IIS.
then you just run the following command to create a simple certificate:
selfssl.exe /N:CN=website.com /K:1024 /V:365 /S:1 /P:443
You should change the CN name to match with your website or URL.
/K is the key size, /V is how long it's valid, /S is the site number /P is the port

If you want more info on this run selfssl.exe /?

If you need to create a certificate with apache, just install openssl and run the following commands.

openssl genrsa -out ca.key 1024
this creates a private key in ca.key

openssl req -new -key ca.key -out ca.csr
This creates a CSR file named ca.csr using the ca.key key file. You can submit this file to certification authorty, like Verisign. They will use this file to create a certificate for you.
You will be asked several questions here, and make sure that Common Name match your website.

Next command will create a self-signed certificate that you can use on your apache webserver.
openssl x509 -req -days 365 -in ca.csr -signkey ca.key -out ca.crt

If you're using apache on windows you should run the following command and use the new key created.
openssl rsa -in ca.key -out ca2.key

Otherwise you get the following message in the apache error log and can't start the apache service: SSLPassPhraseDialog builtin is not supported on Win32.

Good luck

Devils win at Toronto

The Devils won last night against Toronto, 4-1.
Parise scored 2 goals and Clarkson and Gionta had 1 goal.

They are still trailing Pittsburgh with 2 points, with one game in hand.

Martin sat out for the second game in a row with an ankle injury
