Greetings Planet MySQL readers,

I am new to Planet MySQL.. so I thought I should introduce myself.

I am Trent Lloyd (some may know me online as 'lathiat'), based in Perth, Western Australia and presently working for Sun Microsystems as a MySQL Support Engineer providing support to Sun's MySQL customers. I have been with Sun for 12 months, and previous to that was working for MySQL AB before it was acquired for 8 months. My background before that is in the ISP industry working for HostAway in a combination System/Network administration and support role.

I have also given a number of papers, often related to either Avahi or IPv6 at a few conferences.. mainly Linux.conf.au - you can view them on my web-site www.lathiat.net.

I have an open-source/free-software community background.. I co-authored Avahi (a mDNS/DNS-SD/Link-Local IP stack for Linux and other *nixes) with Lennart Poeterring and dabbled my hand in the likes of the Ubuntu MOTU and GNOME communities.

Working in the MySQL Support Team, and having a very large customer base to source problems from, we run into many problems and gotcha's on our customer systems which people don't hit every day but are very difficult to track down when you do. I hope that by sharing some of these experiences


With that introduction out of the way, I have just landed in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia to attend linux.conf.au (which was a very last minute arrangement). I have attended this conference every year since 2003 (thats 7 of them!), it's always great and I am glad I am able to attend again.

I am sitting at the "Open Source Databases" mini-conference which has a strong MySQL presence. There are quite a few Sun folk here, which is fantastic - unfortunately a few others were unable to make it but it should be great never the less.

I will be bringing you more Linux.conf.au updates throughout the week and MySQL tips into the future!

Hello.
DVDShrink runs out of memory on some of the new Rip guard movies like Bros Grimm. Don't use it, use this Guide and see how it comes out.....¨ open up DVD Decrypter <> put your original dvd movie inside burner or dvd-rom <> Mode, ISO, Read <> set your source <===== where the original is located <> set your destination <===== to your hard drive <> click on Decrypt (now sit tight and wait until it's completed) Once it's successfully ripped the ISO into your hard drive ¨ open DVDShrink ¨ <> goto File -> Open Disc Image and open the ISO file just ripped¨ <> do the Shrink thing either Full Disc or Re-author, your choice ¨ <> hit Backup and tell Shrink to Burn with Decripter ¨ <> place a blank disc in your drive, set the burn speed and hit the burn button¨ ¨ When finished burning, remove the newly copied disc and you got it!¨ Let me know what you think…. If it works for you then I’ll tell you why it works….. If it don’t work then I’ll keep my mouth closed LOL.There are three kinds of men: The ones that learn by reading; The few who learn by observation; The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence and find out for themselves...Please DO NOT PM ME for support... Lets keep it on the board, so we can all learn.
