1. Unstable, when I switch between different input sources, screen will be blanked occasionally. I need to power off and on it to resume the operation.

2. Incorrect resolution detection by using VGA D-Sub connector to connect computer.

3. On screen display menu is quite nice.

4. Built-in speak sound quality not good.

5. Price is very attractive.

6. Not include monitor driver for computer connection use.

Overall comments: Not good

Review: 3ware 9650SE-2LP

Review: 3ware 9650SE-2LP

I just bought 3ware 9650SE-2LP for my Linux box.

I have tested CentOS 5.3 (x64) and Fedora 8 (x64). Both Linux default kernel included driver already.

It is very easy to use and configure.

My comments:
1. Easy to install for Linux
2. CLI for Linux is good
3. Performance is good
4. Firmware upgrade is easy

Overall comment is very good for Linux.

Linux: Disable check disk at start up

E.g. Disable check disk for /dev/sda1

tune2fs -c 0 -i 0 /dev/sda1

Edit /etc/fstab and modify last field to 0 instead of 1 or 2

/dev/sda2                /                       ext3    defaults       1 0
/dev/sda1             /boot                   ext3    defaults        1 0

If you put VMware guest file on NAS, you may face a problem “File is too large”.

You can put  the following option in vmx file to skip file size checking.

Modify Outlook 2007 View by using vbscript (vbs)

Currently I am checking how to modify Outlook 2007 default view by using vbs.

Following is my working vbs. You can download and test it.

MSDN reference:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb177050.aspx

VBS code example

Const ForReading = 1
Const olFolderInbox = 6
Const olColorRed = 10
Set olApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")
Set objName = olApp.GetNameSpace("MAPI")

Set objTableView = objName.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox).CurrentView

            objTableView.ColumnFont.Size = 10
            objTableView.ColumnFont.Name = "Arial"

            objTableView.RowFont.Size = 10
            objTableView.RowFont.Name = "Arial"

            objTableView.AutoPreviewFont.Name = "Arial"
            objTableView.AutoPreviewFont.Size = 10

            ' Save the table view.
            objTableView.Save
            objTableView.Apply

        Set objView = objName.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox).CurrentView

        For Each objRule In objView.AutoFormatRules

           If Not objRule.Name = "Unread group headers" Then

                'MsgBox objRule.Name
		'MsgBox objRule.Font.Color

                objRule.Font.Color = olColorRed

           End If
           objRule.Font.Size = 10
           objRule.Font.Name = "Arial"

        Next

        objView.Save
        objView.Apply

wscript.echo "Completed"

Outlook 2007 default view

Outlook 2007 default view

After running vbs, it makes the following change

2. Font size changed to 10pt
3. Unread mail changed from black to red

Fedora Live CD login as root

Fedora Live CD Default login user is “liveuser”, when I use Live CD for system recovery or maintenance purpose, I will face access denied problem while accessing to different folders.

Following is a way for logging as root by using Fedora Live CD. (I tested this approach on Fedora Live CD 10)

1. Ctrl+Alt+F2
2. Login as root without password
3. cd /etc/pam.d/
4. vi gdm
5. Comment the following line
#auth       required    pam_succeed_if.so user != root quiet

6. save the change
7. Back to the graphical login screen.
8. You can use root as login user now.

Enjoy it !!
