  • blblack/gdnsd – gdnsd is an Authoritative-only DNS server. The initial g stands for Geographic, as gdnsd offers a plugin system for geographic (or other sorts of) balancing, redirection, and service-state-conscious failover. The plugin system can also do things like weighted address/cname records. If you don't care about these features you can ignore them :).
  • How to Create and Apply Patches in GIT using diff and apply Command – Creating a patch in GIT is a great way to share changes that you are not yet ready to push to a public branch of a project.
  • Your own Dynamic DNS in 3 steps | The Nexus – This is a "niche" post: it will really only appeal to you if you have access to your own — or a friend's — name servers and want to use your own domain to track your dynamic IP addresses, such as your home router's. You will still have to buy your own domain, cheap if you go to or I hear that the latter even provide their own dynamic DNS service although I cannot tell you anything about its quality/flexibility. So, why this post? It's for you, my friends, budding entrepreneurs who wish to bootstrap your business and know that every cent counts. Maybe you feel that you could host your product's web site on a home computer. Maybe you need more control over what happens on that server. Or maybe you want to be able to log on to your development machine from anywhere in the world. Whatever your reasons, you're still here. So let's get started.
  • Apache – Prefork or Worker | Code Bucket – Apache is the most common and famous webserver. Everyone knows about apache and most of us also have hands on experience with apache. But few of us know that apcahe2 comes with 2 multi processing modules(MPMs): 1. Prefork 2. Worker
  • Ottimizzazione di Apache, dall’analisi ai parametri – […] I recenti sviluppi nel campo della virtualizzazione hanno accelerato la moltiplicazione di ambienti virtuali vps a basso costo, molto convenienti ma a volte carenti dal punto di vista delle risorse di sistema. Molto spesso questi ambienti vengono utilizzati a scopo di testing o come ambienti di produzione all'interno dei quali viene implementato l'utilizzo di un web server. Apache, come ben sappiamo ,e uno dei web server piu diffusi e nella maggioranza dei casi rappresenta la scelta di default su un grandissimo numero di installazioni […]

  • Generate large amount of test data « my two cents – I’m using the dictionary on linux systems to generate test data. The shell script below generates test data for MySQL, but similar concepts can be used for other database systems as well.
  • JQueryin | Switching Apache from Prefork to Worker MPM in RHEL / CentOS 5.x / Fedora 13 – I’m going to outline the process of switching from Apache’s default installation of MPM Prefork to that of MPM Worker. I will also be covering the proper installation of FastCGI (mod_fcgid) to further improve your server performance. This guide is ideally intended for individuals running on low-memory VPS servers as memory consumption will likely be far lower with the Worker MPM because it spawns threads as opposed to forking child processes. If you’re intentionally reading this article, you’re probably aware of the performance benefits gained.
  • Free PDF Reader – Sumatra PDF – Sumatra PDF is a free PDF, eBook (ePub, Mobi), XPS, DjVu, CHM, Comic Book (CBZ and CBR) reader for Windows.

    Sumatra PDF is small, portable and starts up very fast.

    Simplicity of the user interface has a high priority.
