If you have recently read Stewart's blog post on mysqlperformanceblog, related to Percona Playback and you wanted to test it but you were too lame^H^H^H^Hbusy to compile it (or it was just not an option), I've made an CentOS 6 rpm just for you ;-) I hope this helps ! PS: those packages have not been tested yet but you can replace mysql-libs by Percona-Server-shared-compat
Since a while, everyday at 8pm, my N900 was complaining because it wasn't able to sync one of my calendar (my corporate google calendar). I never really paid attention... but yesterday I decided to fix this. The calendar sync is done using erminig-ng. My first action was to save the backtrace and have a look at it... I could understand that a integer was provided where the code was expecting a string. So before fixing this, I decided to get the last source code... mmm... and then the github reposirory of thomasvs made my day ! Indeed this guy already fixed the problem and explains that on his blog. He also provides a package to update erminig-ng on the phone :-) Thank you Thomas to not letting me reinventing the wheel !
During last devopsdays in Hamburg, Gildas presented a session of ignite talks. He was using impress!ve but it seems the software was not really designed for that purpose: you should have manually defined the duration of the session but also calculate the duration of each slides... I decided then to patch this very nice product to fit the "ignite" needs :) The proposed patch automatically calculate the duration of the slides and add the a countdown for the slide display + the slide number. (see screenshots) New argument :
$ impressive --ignite 5m MySQL-spider.pdf
