Apps not working after google 2-step verification enabling

Pidgin was not working after I activated 2-step verification for my google account.

Solution : generate application specific password from https://accounts.google.com/IssuedAuthSubTokens#accesscodes

Backup to a .sql file and Restore from .sql database file (MySQL)


Backup

From above link :-
In your command, you can't have a space between -p and the password. Also, mysqldump has to be run on the command line, not in a mysql shell.

Try this on your command line

mysqldump -u username -ppassword databasename > backup.sql

Restore
  • Go to the folder with the backup.sql file from console
  • Start MySQL server
  • Type in source backup.sql

Ceylon Tea to replace Java coffee?

I just came across a new project called "Ceylon Project", thanks to a tweet by @charithsoori. I couldn't find why it is called "Ceylon" though, I am curious to know.
It has being a secret project for 2 years at RedHat and the first breifing of it has happened on last 9th at Beijing by Gaving King. A copy of the briefing presentation is available from here. I really didn't have time to go through what it is all about, but from what I read it seems to be a very revolutionary language and a challenge for Java. Gavin King has mentioned it as "The Ceylon Project - the next generation of Java language?" at his briefing. This is a good enough statement to give a little thought to as whether tea will replace coffee.

The aim of the project has being to create a new programming language and SDK for business computing, to overcome the drawbacks of Java. When it is released it will run on the JVM itself. It seems to me as a little into functional programming. Any way hope I had more time to research on it and write a better post :|. The thing which interested me was the name. Why was it named "Ceylon"? Maybe I will be able to write about it some later time.
