Optimizing raw Windows partition backup

I was going to do some experiments with Windows the other day. I do not use it much so I'm fine with complete reinstall. But after reinstalling it from CD, installing all updates, and tuning some settings I realized that it may be a good idea to look for another way of having a "clean" system set up and running. The obvious solution: use a "dd" command from your favorite *nix to copy raw partition on an external disk and then copy it back when you need it. The only problem: my Windows partition is 150GB and it almost empty (just installed and updated system), so the idea of wasting 150GB of my drive did not excite me. Of course I may try to compress that image but the blocks from unused space will most likely contain some random data (that partition was approx. 30GB before I started my experiments) and the compression may not be very efficient at this point. So the next step is to try to find a utility that will clean up partition by writing some simple pattern into all unused blocks. After a little googling I found an excellent solution: Eraser (http://www.heidi.ie/eraser/). ... Read full article

Summer Glau - Alphas

Summer Glau - Alphas : Summer Glau will be a guest


Summer Glau Guest Star Alphas

We heard a rumor couple of weeks ago that Summer Glau will be guest starring on the new Syfy show Alphas.

It has been discussed by our members in these forum threads:

Summers Secret project

Summer Glau Guest Star on Alphas

Summer Glau will guest star on Alphas, along with Garret Dillahunt and Brent Spiner, as confirmed from the Alphas panel at the San Diego Comic Con that was Friday July, 22. Executive producer Ira Steven Behr didn't go into details about the characters they'd be playing, but he did say that he'd just seen Glau's episode and that she's "terrific" in it.

ORA-00942 when calling dbms_mview.refresh in schema cloned by exp/imp

If you ever tried to refresh materialized view and got an error like this:
Code
BEGIN dbms_mview.refresh('MYMVIEW'); END;

*
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-00942: table or view does not exist
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_SNAPSHOT", line 2256
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_SNAPSHOT", line 2462
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_SNAPSHOT", line 2431
ORA-06512: at line 1

then it's probably because your schema was created by exporting and importing data from schema with another name. If you examine the content of a schema dump file like this:
Code
$ exp myschema@$ORACLE_SID file=myschema rows=n statistics=none
$ strings myschema.dmp|less

then you may see undocumented arguments in commands that create materialized views:
Code
CREATE SNAPSHOT "MYMVIEW" USING ("MYMVIEW", (8, 'DB.GLOBAL.NAME', 1, 0, 0, "MYSCHEMA", ...

The string "DB.GLOBAL.NAME" is obviously a global database name where you exported schema from. It is followed by a few digits and a name of the exported schema. There is also a lot of other stuff I have no idea about, but that probably does not matter.

The point is that if you import a dump file into schema with different name the "MYSCHEMA" argument will not be changed. So when you later try to refresh that materialized view Oracle will search for tables in schema "MYSCHEMA" instead of the current schema. And this is how we can get "ORA-00942: table or view does not exist" error.

So to fix that we should find where that "MYSCHEMA" is stored in the database and change it to the name of the schema the data was imported into. It turns out that it is stored in two tables: "SYS.SNAP$" and "SYS.SNAP_REFTIME$". Basically you need to connect to your database as SYSDBA and execute the following queries:
Code
update SYS.SNAP$ set MOWNER=SOWNER where MOWNER<>SOWNER;
update SYS.SNAP_REFTIME$ set MOWNER=SOWNER where MOWNER<>SOWNER;
commit;

Of course you should examine contents of those tables before executing these queries in case there is a legitimate reason for some materialized views to have differences in those values.

Disclaimer: I have no responsibility for this advice. If you crashed a production database executing code you found on a fan site you have no one to blame but yourself.

Magazine Scans - Chuck on SciFi Now UK

Chuck is on SciFiNow Covers.

SciFiNow is a science fiction, horror, cult TV and fantasy UK magazine. Inside the issue #56 of the magazine, on stands on July 2011,  Chuck gets a four-page article for its incredible and so far successfull struggle to survive in a non-scifi-friendly tv universe. The covers says : "How tv's hottest geeks beat the network and the secrets to season five".

I scanned the magazine primarily for Summer Glau's photos as Greta; but then i figured out it would be nice to make the scans of the complete article, being a fan of Chuck myself.
