Solved: Images load up partially when served by Apache Web Server

This was a very strange issue which showed up at one of my client’s Web application. The application is hosted on a Apache Web server and serves JPEG images. These JPEG files reside on a different server and mounted via CIFS (loosely called Samba mount) on the Linux machine running the Web server.

Now the issue was, many JPEG images, especially the larger ones, loaded up only partially in a Web browser (both Internet Explorer and Firefox). What made them load fully was pressing CTRL+R or clicking on Refresh/Reload several times. Bandwidth wasn’t an issue here, since this problem occurred even when browsing the JPEGs from the local network. Read the rest of this entry »

Replacement battery for Android Dev Phone 1

This is a long pending post that I wanted to write. In April, after about a year of purchase of my Android Dev Phone 1 (a.k.a. ADP1), its battery started draining out. It became so bad that that I had to keep the phone always on charging. While at home/office, I used to charge it using USB/AC power. While driving, I kept it charging using a nifty car adapter.

After about a week of frustration and laziness (to search for a fix), I decided to buy a replacement battery. But the question was, whom do I contact for the replacement battery? HTC? Google? or Brightstar (the distributor) ? Phew…. Read the rest of this entry »

MySQL GUI Tools (Query Browser, Administrator) for Fedora 13

In Fedora Linux, the mysql-gui-tools package provides the graphical (or GUI) clients to query and administer a MySQL database – useful alternatives to the command line client.

While I’m very comfortable with the mysql command line client, I do switch to the GUI query browser to add/edit stored procedures/functions.

“yum install mysql-gui-tools” was the simplest command to install the GUI tools for MySQL in Fedora Linux. But in Fedora 13, this results in “No package mysql-gui-tools available”.

So what happened here?

Solved: ‘requires bundle org.eclipse.wst.xml.core’ error, while installing Google Plugin in Fedora Eclipse

The simplest way to get started with developing for Google App Engine, Google Web Toolkit and Google Wave is to use the Google Plugin for the Eclipse IDE. This plugin installs the SDK as well. Eclipse’s built-in wizard to add new software (plugin) makes it very easy to install the Google plugin. This wizard can be supplied with a URL (http://dl.google.com/eclipse/plugin/3.5 in this case) to a download site. Henceforth, Eclipse takes care of downloading and installing the plugin, along with associated dependencies, bundle or required software.

However, for me, installing the Google Plugin didn’t go as smooth as expected. I have been using Fedora Linux on my laptop since the last 5+ years. Fedora ships with the Eclipse IDE. When I tried installing the Google Plugin in Fedora Eclipse, I faced the following error. Read the rest of this entry »
