Linux Time – How to Set the Time and Date using Command Date!

linux-time

I just noticed that my web server’s time was ahead by 10 hours for some reasons.  If you run linux dedicated servers, you will want to know how to do this.  I know there’s many ways to do it but this is the simplest/fastest method.

Here’s a really simple way to set time and date on any linux/unix system:

date – Would list the date and time of the server. Below is an example of the output.

Thu Feb 8 16:47:32 MST 2001

date -s “11/20/2003 12:48:00” – Set the date to the date and time shown.

GMail Hack – How to Access GMail when It’s Down!

Well, Google Operating System blog shows the different modes you can use to access GMail when it’s down.

These are of course methods that would ultimately require that GMail servers are running but there are times when you will need hard copies of your GMail.

Download Google Earth for iPhone here

Google Earth lets people virtually fly around a 3D view of the world made from satellite and aerial imagery mapped onto the planet’s mount

CX1 Supercomputer for $25K!

Microsoft and Cray launch the CX1 supercomputer for about $25K each.  The CX1 supercomputer can hold upto 16 Intel Xeon CPUs, 4 Terabytes of storage, and 64 gigs of memory.

The supercomputer will run Windows HPC Server 2008, the only downfall of it.

I would rather see free Linux system running on the servers, that would probably bring down the cost of software and price down to around $15K at least.

At this point I don’t really see the usefulness of this Windows super

Memcached, MediaWiki, and MySQL for optimizing Database

Today, I saw that Hackszine’s Jason Striegel has postsed a blog post about Memcached and MySQL.

In other words, it caches your MySQL queries.  But to do this, you do need to check the Memcached cache before doing the actual MySQL query.

DIY Linux HACK – HOW TO optimize your WordPress Blog, MediaWiki, or any other high load website with Compression!

Well, we did a lot of server hacking before with some MySQL, eAccelerator, and httpd.

There’s a lot of major blogs out there I have checked using Web Page Compression Tool that are not using compression. (For one, I checked John Chow’s blog)

Try to check one of your posts instead of checking your main URL as the tool is funky with root domains. (e.g. Check https://zedomax.com/blog/2008/02/23/never-give-up-especially-your-blog-dude/ instead of http://zedomax.com)

The biggest pyramid “splog” scam in this world today – StumbleUpon =Spambleupon

Okay, I will have to tell you the truth tonight about one of the biggest social networking sites, SpambleUpon, or most people call it, StumbleUpon.

They are making so much money off bloggers, basically StumbleUpon “scrapes” bloggers’ content and makes millions of dollars off you!  Even though no one has really “sued” them, they are in big trouble if bloggers start sueing them one by one.

Google should really ban them for “splogging”, every one of SU users’ blogs are “splogs” made up of content written by bloggers li
