Creating a monthly archive block with Drupal 7 views


The level of experience that makes things easy in one version of Drupal can make tasks jarring in another. In Drupal 6, I have expertise with every level of views -- the normal stuff, like fields, filtering, and rewriting, plus more advanced features like arguments. With the Views Custom Field module, I can even use PHP to make views even more customizable. Getting that same level of familiarity with Drupal 7 views will be a challenge, but it's a fun challenge.
First views project in D7: Creating a monthly archive block for my right column. A pre-packaged version ships with the views module, but creating my own served as a crash course for Drupal 7 views. I started from the D6 tutorial at Chris Shattuck's blog, and referred to the pre-packaged version to fill in the gaps.
The goal of this tutorial is to create a block you can stick in a side column that displays linked months with a post count, and a page for each month so your visitors have somewhere to go when they click the linked months. Without further ado, here you go.

Nearly 1 in 3 Chinese online shoppers are victims of fraud as annual losses add up to $4.7bn

Companies like Taobao are doing their part to legitimize ecommerce in China, but the industry remains something of a wild frontier. Chinese consumers lost $4.7 billion (RMB 30 billion) to fraud from June 2011 to June 2012, a new report claims.

The China Electronic Commerce Association has found that 32 percent of the estimated 194 million ecommerce-savvy Chinese Internet users purchased from fraudulent websites during the period, as reported by Xinhua (translation). A conservative estimate put losses at RMB 30.8 billion.

Though the government is taking steps to combat rampant ecommerce fraud, industry insiders claimed the problem continues to grow over time. Even so, a growing number of Chinese citizens put their faith in buying over the Internet. The number of online shoppers has increased by 33 million since the 2010-2011 period.
70 percent of the more than 60 million deceived customers over the past year spent between $79-314 (RMB 500-2000) on their transactions, the report said.

The tricks used by scammers include basing a fake site on a template from a genuine vendor and then SEO-optimizing the counterfeit business. Fake sites are also known to have very similar URLs to the real brands and sellers. Many sites also have hundreds of bogus reviews for their products and services.
According to one police officer, fraud has jumped up significantly since 2010. Criminals employ advanced masking techniques that make it hard for law enforcement officials to track them.

Crooks and business are continually working to outsmart each other. Taobao, the Chinese equivalent to eBay, recently stepped up its security efforts with revamped mobile and desktop safeguard software.
The stakes of the ecommerce market should only continue to rise. A burgeoning middle class in China that can afford not just to go online but to shop there is expected to make the country the world’s largest e-commerce market in just a few years. One analysis from earlier this year said the size of the market will top $360 billion by the end of 2015.

Solving the Problem of Software Security

For today’s businesses the use of software application is a must, and so is improving your software security. There are a number of methods to be considered for application security enhancement, but it is the right mix of approaches that may become your key to business processes reliability and competitiveness. 

A recent Quocirca report underlines the scale of the application security challenge faced by businesses. The average enterprise tracks around 500 mission critical applications, in financial services organisations it is closer to 800 (figure 1).
The security challenge arises because more and more of these applications are web-enabled. Furthermore, businesses are increasingly relying on software provided as a service (SaaS) and apps that run on mobile devices, both of which are, by definition, exposed to the internet (figure 2).

Businesses worry about application security for three reasons. First, security failures leave them vulnerable to hackers and malware, secondly auditors expect application security to be demonstrable and third, customers, with who they share business processes via applications, are also increasingly likely to seek security guarantees. Fixing security flaws up-front wherever possible also makes sense because of the cost involved at doing so after software if deployed. There are both products and services opportunity for resellers to help their customers achieve these goals.

There are a number of approaches that can be taken to improve application security. For in-house developed software, better practice can be ensured through training of developers, many businesses will need assistance to achieve this. For commercially acquired software, due diligence during procurement is necessary, seeking assurances from independent software vendors (ISV); resellers that sell application software could do this for their customers as part of their value add. However, these measures can never ensure that software is 100% secure. For this reason there are three other approaches that should be considered:

1. Application scanning: scanning software eliminates flaws in the first place. There are two approaches, the static scanning of code or binaries before deployment and the dynamic scanning of binaries during testing or after deployment. Static scanning is pervasive, looking at every line of code. Scans can be conducted as regularly as is deemed necessary. Whilst on-premise scanning tools have been relied on in the past, the use of on-demand scanning services has become increasingly popular as the providers of such services have visibility in to the tens of thousands of applications scanned on behalf of thousands of customers. Such services are often charged for on a per-application basis, so unlimited scans can be carried out, even daily.

10 Most Successful Businessmen

By: Mason Kaho
Break Studios Contributing Writer

A list of the ten most successful businessmen of all time includes some of history's most industrious workers and innovative entrepreneurs. In most cases, these men invented entire industries and changed the course of history.
  1. John D. Rockefeller. Rockefeller is the richest man of all time when adjusted for inflation and is certainly one of the ten most successful businessmen. He created Standard Oil and completely monopolized the oil industry, controlling every level of production from start to finish.


  2. Henry Ford. Ford created the Ford Motor Company and essentially, the automobile industry. His developments changed the way factories ran, the way society operated and the face of the country. His company remains a major world force today.

  3. Bill Gates. Gates became one of the ten most successful businessmen of all time in the 1980’s when the software he developed—Microsoft—took over the computing world. Nearly all computers run Microsoft, and Gates is a major player in world economics.

  4. Thomas Edison. Edison not only invented an item nearly every person in the world uses everyday, the light bulb, he also was the holder of over 1,000 patents at the time of his death. A symbol of innovation, persistence and entrepreneurship, he is definitely one of the ten most successful businessmen in history.

  5. Soichiro Honda. Honda is certainly one of the ten most successful businessmen in world history. He began making small motorcycles in Japan in the mid 20th century and then moved into the auto industry. His eponymous car company grew and gained a significant foothold in the United States, opening the way for Japanese exports and establishing a reputation for quality and reliability.

  6. Steven Jobs. Jobs was co-founder of Apple, the company that introduced a practical personal computer to the world, and is one of the ten most successful businessmen in the country. He has stayed at the helm of Apple, a company that continues to release incredibly popular products.

  7. Carlos Slim. Slim moved into the spot of “world’s richest man” and obviously, one of the ten most successful businessmen in the world. He has made his money in the telecom industry and is the CEO of three companies.

  8. Andrew Carnegie. Carnegie was an immigrant bobbin boy in a factory as a child, and decades later, he became the biggest steel magnate the world had ever seen. In his later years, he gave away a large part of his vast fortune.

  9. JP Morgan. Morgan, one of the ten most successful businessmen ever, was one of a handful of corporate titans on the American scene at the turn of the 20th century. He was a banker and oversaw industrial consolidations in major industries, such as steel and electronics. He stepped in during a financial crisis and saved many New York banks in 1907.

  10. Michael Dell. Dell was an engineering whiz as a youngster and started a computer building business while in college. His company, today, is one of the biggest tech firms in the world, and most Americans spend their time online using a Dell computer.

SQL SERVER 2008, how to add more tables in existing replication

To add more tables into article of existing publication, we have to create new snapshot of publication.

=> Right click on "New publication" and follow the steps.

I have done it just now. It is very useful technique for whom that is as SQL Server 2008 developers want to do database replication.

Options to not replicate SQL Server DELETE commands

Problem

I have transactional replication configured in my production environment. The business team has requested that I do not replicate delete operations on certain articles.  In this tip we look at a couple of options to not replicate DELETE commands.

Solution

In some cases older data may be required on the subscriber, but deleted at the publisher. In order to meet this requirement we could use either of the options outlined below. Note, both options assume transactional replication is already configured between two databases.

Option 1: Modifying Replication Settings

In this option we will use SSMS to make the changes, but this could be done using T-SQL commands as well.

In SSMS go to Replication -> Local Publications and right click on your publication and select Properties.  In the Publication Properties window click on 'Articles' and select the relevant article.  Go to "Article Properties" and select "Set Properties of Highlighted Table Article" as shown below.

sql publication properties

In the article properties window, change the "DELETE delivery format" to "Do not replicate DELETE statements".

sql server article properties

After the change click OK and you will see the below prompt.  As the article property has been changed the subscriptions need to be reinitialized. Click "Mark for Reinitialization" which causes the snapshot to be applied to the subscriber.

reinitialize subscriptions

In SSSM, navigate to Replication and right click and select "Launch Replication Monitor" as shown below.  Go to your publication and click View Details as shown below to see the snapshot progress.

sql server replication monitor

After clicking "View Details", you can see the details of the snapshot generation for the subscriber.

sql distributor to subscriber history

As you can see the entire snapshot is getting applied to the subscriber.  This option must be used with caution as there may be cases where your subscriber database is used as an archive and may have more data than your publisher database.  However, this depends on your environment and if your application is fine with getting the entire snapshot you could use this method.  Also, for very large databases you may not want to reinitialize the entire snapshot either, so again use caution.

Once this change has been made and if there is a need to revert to replicating deletes, just perform similar steps as above to allow delete operations by calling the replication delete stored procedure at the subscriber. Call is the default syntax for DELETE operations for SQL Server transactional replication. Once you select Call , you will also need to provide the DELETE stored procedure name for this specific article which would be available in the subscriber database.

Option 2 : Modifying the replication stored procedure in the subscriber database

For transactional replication, by default, stored procedures get created in the subscriber database for insert, update and delete operations. These could be viewed as shown in the screenshot below.
sql replication stored procedures

REP_S is the subscriber database and we could see the insert, update and delete stored procedures that were created for each subscribed article.  In option (1), we need to be concerned about the snapshot getting applied when we modify the article property. However, in order to overcome this shortcoming, there were some discussions I came across on the internet to make the replication delete procedure in the subscriber database to just RETURN and not actually do the DELETE. This would ensure that the replication delete procedure in the subscriber database exits unconditionally even though it is called. As per books online, RETURN in T-SQL enables you to "Exit unconditionally from a query or procedure. RETURN is immediate and complete and can be used at any point to exit from a procedure, batch, or statement block. Statements that follow RETURN are not executed." (Source - http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms174998.aspx).

Using this concept, the delete procedure in the subscriber database could be modifed as shown. I have just added the RETURN statement right after the BEGIN, so the stored procedure exits immediately without doing the actual DELETE.  With this approach, we need not worry about the snapshot getting applied again to the subscriber.

--Include RETURN statement in stored procedure and alter the stored procedure in the subscriber database
USE [REP_S]


GO


/****** Object:  StoredProcedure [dbo].[sp_MSdel_dboArticle_1] Script Date: 10/14/2011 22:00:43 ******/
SET ANSI_NULLS ON
GO
SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER ON

GO

ALTER procedure [dbo].[sp_MSdel_dboArticle_1] @pkc1 int

as
begin    

RETURN
delete [dbo].[Article_1]

where [Col1] = @pkc1 if @@rowcount = 0

    if @@microsoftversion>0x07320000

        exec sp_MSreplraiserror 20598

end

 
GO
In order to revert to the older configuration, to allow SQL Server to replicate deletes, you would need to just comment or remove the RETURN statement in the stored procedure.

Summary

Both options could be tested easily with a simple publication of a single article and performing the sequence of steps as shown above.  Also you should use Replication Monitor to see if there are any errors.
Note: the above steps were performed using SQL Server 2008 R2.

Next Steps

  • Consider testing this scenario through a simple transactional replication setup
  • Refer to other related tips on replication to get familiar with the concepts

More Confident = More Money, Women, Love, Life, and Happiness

Have you always wanted to learn how to be confident, but just can’t seem to get it right? Perhaps you are naturally shy, or have problems speaking up in public situations. Maybe you can’t seem to stop second guessing your decisions, and you allow others to dictate what you should do. Or, you might just want to become more of a leader at work, or in your personal life instead. Whatever your situation, you’ve likely tried a number of different approaches, which have only given you mediocre results. What is the answer, and how can you finally turn everything around, and boost your confidence levels like never before?

The Problem!

Before you can discover how to be confident, you first need to uncover the primary problem. You see, most self-help systems and products only touch on the surface, by talking about the symptoms of low self-assurance. Rather than getting down to the heart of the matter, they work to correct issues which won’t give you lasting change. Ever heard the popular advice “Act confident and you’ll become confident”? It sounds like good advice on the surface, but when you dig deeper you find a fatal flaw. How do you act confident when you don’t even know what confidence looks like? Short answer – you don’t! You usually end up emulating someone who is arrogant, because they appear to have all the qualities of confidence you’re looking for…at least on the outside. Problem is, they’re not confident on the inside, and following them won’t make you any more confident.

What’s the Answer?

You must do a 180 degree turn, and dig out the root cause of your problems instead. If you commit to this process, then you will begin to see every area of your life begin to change! Rather than making minor improvements in only one specific issue, the bigger picture will start to get radically better. That means your financial situation can turn around in dramatic fashion, and you won’t have to work as hard to make things happen for you. You may even find yourself feeling truly happy for the first time in a long time! In your personal life, you may discover that you are attracting healthy, loving relationships easily – with no conscious effort on your part. Finally, without all of the negative emotions constantly holding you down, you may realize that you have more energy and passion than ever before. In short, your entire life could be turned upright once again, and you could begin living how you’ve always wanted!

How Does It Work?

If you want to know how to be confident, you probably realize that treating your symptoms simply won’t work. Yet, how can you uncover the root issue, which is causing all of your problems to grow and flourish? This process is much like a mystery, where you chart all of your issues, which will give you clues into your personal struggles. Yet, as you go through this journey, you will inevitably end up at only one conclusion. You see, everyone’s root issue is the same, whether they realize it or not! Having an inadequate self-image, will give rise to every other symptom you want to be rid of for good.

How Do You Change?

At this point you are probably asking, if this is true, how do you change your self-image for the better? The good news is, anyone can make a massive transformation in how they see themselves. Unfortunately, this task isn’t easy and many popular products for doing so, don’t work effectively. Methods like meditation, visualization and positive affirmation are inferior, because they require a high degree of self-discipline. In the majority of cases, people try them for a short time, and then they become frustrated and quit. Luckily, a new technology has recently been developed, which makes changing your self-image fast and easy.

Entrain Your Brain!

This revolutionary new technique is termed Brainwave Entrainment, and it is based upon the laws of physics. When two items are vibrating in close proximity, they tend to match each other’s vibrations perfectly. In fact, this is probably the reason certain musical rhythms and sounds produce emotional responses in people. As your brain is stimulated by beat, it comes into alignment and causes your brain activity to literally change! Using this information, sound engineers are able to create special tracks, which change how you think on an electrical level. For example, listening to Theta sound waves, seems to make learning easier. In contrast, Brainwave Entrainment which focuses upon your Alpha waves instead, may cause a more meditative state to arise.

The Morry Method.

Yet, while all of these benefits of Brainwave Entrainment are good, not all systems are of the same caliber. If you want to know how to be confident, then you need the right person to be your guide! Morry Zelcovitch is an excellent choice, as he used to be where you are now. He suffered from terrible depression, was accident prone and he couldn’t seem to stop talking. After finally getting fed up with his problems, he decided to do something about them. He stumbled upon Brainwave Entrainment, but the products he used only gave him temporary results. Yet, he knew that he was on the right track, and he only needed more learning to find the answer he was looking for.

To that end, Morry studied under the world’s top Brainwave Entrainment researcher David Siever, until he had fully mastered this technology. Then he created his own unique system, which finally resolved all of his issues! He was so relieved and grateful to get to the root of his problems, he decided to make this product available to everyone who needed to learn how to be confident.

Change Your Self-Image.

The product is called Quantum Confidence with the Morry Method, and it is one of a kind. You benefit from Morry’s unique expertise, and you can follow in his footsteps – to achieve the same results! If you are desperate to discover how to be confident, and you want to make a radical change in your life, then this system may be perfect for you. It doesn’t require any special skills, or a high level of dedication, as all you have to do is sit back and listen. So, why not do something to improve every area of your life today, and get your own copy now?

Cannot Connect SQLServer 2008 with the provider SQLNCLI... Is there any SQL Server 2008 patch to support using SQLNCLI provider to access?

We have a program which developed under SQL Server 2005. In the program the provider of the connect string is hard coded as "SQLNCLI". It's ok running on SQL Server 2005. Now, for some reasons, this program must run under SQL Server 2008 (x64). But our program cannot access the SQL Server.
We check the reason, found that, in SQL Server 2008, SQLNCLI is changed to SQLNCLI10, this caused our program cannot run.
So I want to ask, is there any patch of SQL2008, so that the legacy program can normal access SQLserver with SQLNCLI WITHOUT rebuild a new version?

Answers:

Since SQLNCLI is published before SQL Server 2008 is published, it is designed to connect to SQL Server 7.0, 2000 and 2005. If we use this provide to connect to SQL Server 2008, it might work incorrectly. Therefore we recommend that you use SQLNCLI10 to connect to SQL Server 2008. Meanwhile SQLNCLI10 could also be used to connect to SQL Server 2005.

How to Become an Ethical Hacker

Not all hackers do evil work. Here's what you need to know to use your hacking skills to do good.

Do viruses, DDoS attacks, AspxSpy back dOOr or buffer overflows tickle your fancy? If so, you might consider becoming a legal hacker, aka an ethical hacker, "white hat" hacker, or penetration tester.

Businesses and government-related organizations that are serious about their network security hire ethical hackers and penetration testers to help probe and improve their networks, applications, and other computer systems with the ultimate goal of preventing data theft and fraud. You may not get the same adrenaline rush that you might with underground hacking, but you can earn a good and honest living--and not end up facing prison time, as some illegal "black hat" hackers do.

How does the job market look like for ethical hackers? Extremely good! The IT market overall continues to grow despite the current economic turmoil. Research firm Gartner estimates that worldwide enterprise IT spending grew by 5.9 percent between 2009 and 2010, to a total of $2.7 trillion. At the same time, security is becoming a more pressing concern. Gartner expects to see an increase of nearly 40 percent in spending on worldwide security services during the five-year period from 2011 to 2015, eventually surpassing $49.1 billion.

In your first years as an ethical hacker, you'll be in a position to earn anywhere from $50,000 to $100,000 per year, depending on the company that hires you, and on your IT experience and education. With several years of professional experience, you could command $120,000 or more per year, especially if you do your own independent consulting.

You can't just dive into an ethical hacker position, however. Without IT security experience, you won't get very far, even with degrees and certifications. As is true for other IT jobs, employers typically want candidates who have college degrees, but related experience is king. And experience with certifications can typically take the place of some degree requirements.

Getting Started

What you need to do to get started on the road to becoming an ethical hacker depends on where you are in the IT field. If you haven't started your IT career yet, you might even consider military service. The military offers many IT opportunities, and you get paid to go to school, even if you enlist in a part-time branch such as the National Guard or Reserves. Military service also looks good to employers that require security clearances.

Start with the basics: Earn your A+ Certification and get a tech support position. After some experience and additional certification (Network+ or CCNA), move up to a network support or admin role, and then to network engineer after a few years. Next, put some time into earning security certifications (Security+, CISSP, or TICSA) and find an information security position. While you're there, try to concentrate on penetration testing--and get some experience with the tools of the trade. Then work toward the Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) certification offered by the International Council of Electronic Commerce Consultants (EC-Council for short). At that point, you can start marketing yourself as an ethical hacker.

For a hacker, networking know-how is vital; but make sure that you gain experience in related areas as well. Discover and play with Unix/Linux commands and distributions. Make sure you also learn some programming--maybe C, LISP, Perl, or Java. And spend some time with databases such as SQL.

Soft Skills

Hacking isn't all technical. It also requires so-called soft skills, just as any other IT job does. You'll need a strong work ethic, very good problem-solving and communications skills, and the ability to say motivated and dedicated.

Ethical hackers also need street smarts, people skills, and even some talent for manipulation, since at times they need to be able to persuade others to disclose credentials, restart or shut down systems, execute files, or otherwise knowingly or unknowingly help them achieve their ultimate goal. You'll need to master this aspect of the job, which people in the business sometimes call "social engineering," to become a well-rounded ethical hacker.

Stay Legal!

It's important never to engage in "black hat" hacking--that is, intruding or attacking anyone's network without their full permission. Engaging in illegal activities, even if it doesn't lead to a conviction, will likely kill your ethical hacking career. Many of the available jobs are with government-related organizations and require security clearances and polygraph testing. Even regular companies will perform at least a basic background check.

Becoming a Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH)

As noted earlier, becoming a Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) involves earning the appropriate credential from the EC-Council after a few years of security-related IT experience. The certification will help you understand security from the mindset of a hacker. You'll learn the common types of exploits, vulnerabilities, and countermeasures.

Qualification for a CEH (a vendor-neutral certification) involves mastering penetration testing, footprinting and reconnaissance, and social engineering. The course of study covers creating Trojan horses, backdoors, viruses, and worms. It also covers denial of service (DoS) attacks, SQL injection, buffer overflow, session hijacking, and system hacking. You'll discover how to hijack Web servers and Web applications. You'll also find out how to scan and sniff networks, crack wireless encryption, and evade IDSs, firewalls, and honeypots.

Through approved EC-Council training partners, you can take a live, five-day onsite or online training course to prepare for the CEH cert. You can generally take live online classes over five consecutive days; onsite courses typically offer the content spread over a couple weeks for locals. In addition, you can take self-paced courses and work with self-study materials (including the CEH Certified Ethical Hacker Study Guide book) with or without the training courses. The EC-Council also offers iLabs, a subscription based-service that allows you to log on to virtualized remote machines to perform exercises.

The EC-Council usually requires that you have at least two years of information-security-related work experience (endorsed by your employer) in addition to passing the exam before it will award you the official CEH certification.

Resources

If you're interested in ethical hacking, you can consult many useful resources for more information. To start, check the resources section of the EC-Council site. A quick Amazon search will reveal many books on ethical hacking and the CEH certification, as well.

With some googling, you can find simple hacking how-tos, which may motivate you even more. Consider downloading the Firefox add-on Firesheep or the Android app Droidsheep, and hijack your online accounts via Wi-Fi (but don't use these tools to hijack others' accounts--you could find yourself in legal trouble if you do).

Another option is to experiment with the BackTrack live CD. Try enabling WEP security on your wireless router at home, and then take a stab at cracking it. Check out Hack This Site to test and expand your skills. You could even set up a Linux box with Apache or buy a used Cisco router and see what you can do with it. If you want to play with malware, consider downloading--cautiously, and at your own risk--a malware DIY kit or a keylogger, and use it to experiment on a separate old PC or virtual machine.

Like other IT areas, hacking has conventions and conferences dedicated to it, such as DefCon, one of the oldest and largest of these.

AspxSpy Back dOOr was found in my IIS server

Someone aimed to control and remote to my website in IIS webserver by using AspxSpy back dOOr file and fortunately I have found and deleted it on time  successfully.

I found it on 13rd July 2012, the file is be able to control a whole compromised  system either IIS or SQL server.

the AspxSpy back door authorized you can  manage everything in the system, delete, remove, update and rename files as well.

That was very scared.

And now I am tracking all the files one by one to find whether where they are hiding it more.

Aspxspy is a Trojan horse ASP dot net script that provides an unauthorized remote user with access to a compromised IIS webserver.This tools allow hackers control over a compromised system.

Attacker can also use this attack to places web malware in infected website in fact they are of average size for a malware attacks of web applications.

SQL SERVER – How to Stop Growing Log File Too Big

I was recently engaged in Performance Tuning Engagement in Singapore. The organization had a huge database and had more than a million transactions every hour. During the assignment, I noticed that they were truncating the transactions log. This really alarmed me so I informed them this should not be continued anymore because there’s really no need of truncating or shortening the database log. The reason why they were truncating the database log was that it was growing too big and they wanted to manage its large size. I provided two different solutions for them. Now let’s venture more on these solutions.

If you are jumping over this post to leave a comment, please read first the two options as follows:

1) Convert the Recovery Model to Simple Recovery
If you are truncating the transaction logs, this means you are breaking the T-Log LSN (Log Sequence Numbers). This follows that if disaster comes, you would not be able to restore your T-Logs and there would be no option for you to do point in time recovery. If you are fine with this situation and there is nothing to worry, I suggest that you change your recovery model to Simple Recovery Model. This way, you will not have extra ordinary growth of your log file.

2) Start Taking Transaction Log Backup
If your business does not support loss of data or requires having point in time recovery, you cannot afford anything less than Full Recovery Model. In Full Recovery Model, your transaction log will grow until you take a backup of it. You need to take the T-Log Backup at a regular interval. This way, your log would not grow beyond some limits. If you are taking an hourly T-Log backup, your T-Log would grow until one hour but after this the T-Log backup would truncate all the ‘committed’ transactions once you take it. Doing this would lead the size of the T-Log not to go down much, but it would rather be marked as empty for the next hour’s T-Log to populate.

With this method, you can restore your database at Point of Time if a disaster ever happens at your server.
Let us run an example to demonstrate this. In this case, I have done the following steps:
  1. Create Sample Database in FULL RECOVERY Model
  2. Take Full Backup (full backup is must for taking subsequent backup)
  3. Repeat Following Operation
    1. Take Log Backup
    2. Insert Some rows
    3. Check the size of Log File
  4. Clean Up
After a short while, you will notice that the Log file (ldf) will stop increasing but the size of the backup will increase.

If you have an issue with your log file growth, I suggest that you follow either of the above solutions instead of truncating it.

/* FULL Recovery and Log File Growth */
USE [master]
GO
-- Create Database SimpleTran
IF EXISTS (SELECT name FROM sys.databases WHERE name = N'SimpleTran')
BEGIN
ALTER DATABASE

DROP DATABASE [SimpleTran]
END

GO
-- Set Database backup model to FULL

GO

DROP TABLE [dbo].[RealTempTable]
GO
CREATE TABLE RealTempTable (ID INT)
INSERT INTO RealTempTable (ID)
SELECT TOP 50000 ROW_NUMBER() OVER (ORDER BY a.name) RowID
FROM sys.all_objects a
CROSS JOIN sys.all_objects b
GO
-- Check the size of the Database

FROM sys.master_files

GO
-- Take Full Backup
BACKUP LOG [SimpleTran] TO  DISK = N'D:\SimpleTran.bak' WITH NOFORMAT, NOINIT, NAME = N'SimpleTran-Transaction Log  Backup', SKIP, NOREWIND, NOUNLOAD, STATS = 10
GO
-- Run following transaction multiple times and check the size of T-Log
INSERT INTO RealTempTable (ID)
SELECT TOP 50000 ROW_NUMBER() OVER (ORDER BY a.name) RowID
FROM sys.all_objects a
CROSS JOIN sys.all_objects b
GO
-- Check the size of the Database
SELECT DB_NAME(database_id) AS DatabaseName,
Name AS Logical_Name,
Physical_Name, (size*8)/1024 SizeMB
FROM sys.master_files
WHERE DB_NAME(database_id) = 'SimpleTran'
GO
/*
Now run following code multiple times.
You will notice that it will not increase the size of .ldf file but will for sure
increasethe size of the log backup.
*/
-- Second Time
-- START
BACKUP LOG [SimpleTran] TO  DISK = N'D:\SimpleTran.log' WITH NOFORMAT, NOINIT, NAME = N'SimpleTran-Transaction Log  Backup', SKIP, NOREWIND, NOUNLOAD, STATS = 10
GO
-- Run following transaction and check the size of T-Log
INSERT INTO RealTempTable (ID)
SELECT TOP 50000 ROW_NUMBER() OVER (ORDER BY a.name) RowID
FROM sys.all_objects a
CROSS JOIN sys.all_objects b
GO
-- Check the size of the Database
SELECT DB_NAME(database_id) AS DatabaseName,
Name AS Logical_Name,
Physical_Name, (size*8)/1024 SizeMB
FROM sys.master_files
WHERE DB_NAME(database_id) = 'SimpleTran'
GO
-- END
--Clean Up
USE MASTER
GO
IF EXISTS (SELECT name FROM sys.databases WHERE name = N'SimpleTran')
BEGIN
ALTER DATABASE
[SimpleTran] SET SINGLE_USER WITH ROLLBACK IMMEDIATE;
DROP DATABASE [SimpleTran]
END

If you run the code that is listed between START and END, you would get the following results almost every time:


This validates our earlier discussion. After seeing this article, the Singapore team implemented Log Backup instead of Log Truncate right away. Let me know what you think about this article.

The Best Strategy for Reducing Stress

Imagine you're sailing in the Bahamas, sipping a cold drink and listening to the water lapping the sides of the boat.
Relaxing, right? Not for my friend Rob.*

Rob is not usually stressed-out. For many people, Rob's daily work would be hair-pulling stressful — he's a real estate developer who routinely deals with a multitude of nagging problems related to renters, banks, lawsuits, property management, and rapidly changing valuations. But Rob routinely handles it all with steadiness and perspective.

So why was he stressed that blissful day on his boat? The same reason most of us get stressed: frustrated expectations. Rob had an important call to make and his cell phone wasn't working. He was experiencing the gap between what he expected to happen and what was actually happening.

That's the underlying cause of stress and it's afflicting us more these days than ever because our expectations keep rising, thanks in part to exponential improvements in our technology.

Less-Confident People Are More Successful

There is no bigger cliché in business psychology than the idea that high self-confidence is key to career success. It is time to debunk this myth. In fact, low self-confidence is more likely to make you successful.

After many years of researching and consulting on talent, I've come to the conclusion that self-confidence is only helpful when it's low. Sure, extremely low confidence is not helpful: it inhibits performance by inducing fear, worry, and stress, which may drive people to give up sooner or later. But just-low-enough confidence can help you recalibrate your goals so they are (a) more realistic and (b) attainable. Is that really a problem?

Not everyone can be CEO of Coca Cola or the next Steve Jobs.

If your confidence is low, rather than extremely low, you stand a better chance of succeeding than if you have high self-confidence. There are three main reasons for this:
  1. Lower self-confidence makes you pay attention to negative feedback and be self-critical: Most people get trapped in their optimistic biases, so they tend to listen to positive feedback and ignore negative feedback. Although this may help them come across as confident to others, in any area of competence (e.g., education, business, sports or performing arts) achievement is 10% performance and 90% preparation. Thus, the more aware you are of your soft spots and weaknesses, the better prepared you will be.

    Low self-confidence may turn you into a pessimist, but when pessimism teams-up with ambition it often produces outstanding performance. To be the very best at anything, you will need to be your harshest critic, and that is almost impossible when your starting point is high self-confidence.

    Exceptional achievers always experience low levels of confidence and self-confidence, but they train hard and practice continually until they reach an acceptable level of competence. Indeed, success is the best medicine for your insecurities.
  2. Lower self-confidence can motivate you to work harder and prepare more: If you are serious about your goals, you will have more incentive to work hard when you lack confidence in your abilities. In fact, low confidence is only demotivating when you are not serious about your goals.

    Most people like the idea of being exceptional, but not enough to do what it takes to achieve it. Most people want to be slim, healthy, attractive and successful, but few people are willing to do what it takes to achieve it — which suggests that they don't really want these things as much as they think. As the legendary Paul Arden (ex creative director at Saatchi & Saatchi) noted: "I want means: if I want it enough I will get it. Getting what you want means making the decisions you need to make to get what you want.". If you really want what you say you want, then, your low confidence will only make you work harder to achieve it — because it will indicate a discrepancy between your desired goal and your current state.
  3. Lower self-confidence reduces the chances of coming across as arrogant or being deluded. Although we live in a world that worships those who worship themselves — from Donald Trump to Lady Gaga to the latest reality TV "star" — the consequences of hubris are now beyond debate.

    According to Gallup, over 60% of employees either dislike or hate their jobs, and the most common reason is that they have narcissistic bosses. If managers were less arrogant, fewer employees would be spending their working hours on Facebook, productivity rates would go up, and turnover rates would go down.

    Lower self-confidence reduces not only the chances of coming across as arrogant, but also of being deluded. Indeed, people with low self-confidence are more likely to admit their mistakes — instead of blaming others — and rarely take credit for others' accomplishments. This is arguably the most important benefit of low self-confidence because it points to the fact that low self-confidence can bring success, not just to individuals but also to organizations and society.
In brief, if you are serious about your goals, low self-confidence can be your biggest ally to accomplish them.

It will motivate you to work hard, help you work on your limitations, and stop you from being a jerk, deluded, or both. It is therefore time debunk the myth: High self-confidence isn't a blessing, and low self-confidence is not a curse — in fact, it is the other way around.

How to make your chairman smile and get your proposal approved

How To Get Your Project Approved

What do you do when you have a great idea? You know how to save your company a ton of money or you've thought of a way to really improve a product. The problem is that you know that you have a great idea, but no-one else does. And you can't convert this idea into reality by yourself. You need resources. You need money. You feel that you need permission. What do you do?
If you're working for a large organisation there are probably written procedures for the analysis and approval of capital projects, but they are usually very generic and barren documents designed to handle a broad spectrum of projects. They don't tell you how to process your unique project and they say nothing about how to get approval for a non-capital project. You have to know how to move your idea through the bureaucratic machinery of the real world and convert it to a reality.

How Does JavaScript Run On A Server?


Beginner’s Guide to Node.js (Server-side JavaScript)

Node.js works on a v8 environment – it is a virtual machine or a JavaScript engine that runs the JavaScript code, so for hosting you can’t use the ordinary web hosts. You will need the ones that have the v8 environment.
Here are some provider suggestions for Node.js hosting:
  1. bejes.us
  2. Cloud Foundry
  3. Cloudnode
  4. DotCloud
  5. Duostack
