I was trying to find a good hosting that I can trust for a client of mine. The project involves a lot of transactions on the server so it needs to be fast, like really fast. One of things that can speed up transactions or processes on servers are running on solid state drives or commonly known as SSD. Prices of SSD is pretty high these days and not much hosting really invested in SSDs unless they’re really serious about performances of their servers.
I’ve done some comparison on the internet and found an interesting article on cloud vs dedicated servers comparison. The article shows how dedicated server’s performance stacked up against cloud based solution. That’s where I found out about eSecureData hosting. Apart from dedicated servers, they also offering dedicated based solutions and as well as virtual servers.
With dedicated servers, you basically control a system of your own on the internet. You decide on how to manage your resources or how many servers you want to install on it. Basically there’s no limit on the resources except if it’s reaching the limitations of the server itself, not some other restrictions that was imposed by your hosting provider. Let me tell you a secret – running web based application on nginx based server coupled with php5-fpm & mysql on Ubuntu based installation is awesome. If you want to tweak it a little bit more, play around with memcached or varnish. You won’t be able to get to play around with this kind of things on your shared servers, you typically need access to virtual servers or dedicated servers in order to be able to do to that.
My advise is, if you want to get serious about your blogs or websites, you need to look into dedicated servers solution. Forget all the shared hosting out there. Those are for beginners. If you want to be really in control or make the push to the next level, you really need to get a dedicated server to weather the influx of traffic that is coming your way.
I’m a big fan of TV shows. I have a lot of TV shows that I wouldn’t want to miss every day but sometimes, other priorities need to come first. It’s true that there might be reruns of the shows, but usually it’s shown late at nights or early in the morning, where you need to sleep or getting ready to work. That will be a problem to some people.
So I bought a hard drive recorder to record my favorite TV shows or sports. This way, I won’t be missing my favorite TV shows ever again. Basically hard drive recorder will be connected to your satellite receivers or to your local channel TVs and leave it to record the TV shows. Some hard drive recorders can be programmed to record at specific time and length so you don’t have to worry about keeps forgetting to record the show.
Now, whenever I have to miss my favorite shows, there will be no regrets. I just set my hard disk recorder to record the shows and I can watch it whenever I’m back at home.
If you haven’t watch Avatar, then you’re really have to go to the nearest cinema and enjoy the movie. Personally, I watched it 2 times, one time normal theater and another one is the Avatar 3D version. Superb movie by James Cameroon! I think it’s 2009 best movie in my list and it deserves the Oscar award.
Anyway, I found a document at scribd.com which claims to be a deleted sex scene from the movie. I can’t verify whether it’s genuine or not, but from my opinion, it looks like it. It’s just a short one but seems like a real deal to me.

It’s been a while since I talk about technology in the blog. I haven’t had much time to do tutorials now since I’m always busy at the office with all the work. Hopefully I can find some time to make new tutorials in the near future. In the mean time, I would like to introduce my readers to a new player in the Antivirus Software category. It’s called Vipre. In short, it’s an anti virus solution which includes anti virus and anti spyware in a single application.
Vipre anti virus and anti spyware solution is geared to give you a peace of mind when using the computer while offline or online. The main advantage for Vipre is the performance of the application. The test results ran by major software company shows that Vipre uses very little memory when it’s protecting your computer and uses far less memory than other Antivirus Software when scanning your computer than other anti virus solution. Refer to the graph below for the test comparison and results.
