quick puzzle !

Posted 07-15-2011 at 09:19 PM by dEnDrOn

One day a friend visited my house and asked me the ages of my three sons. I replied that the product of my son's ages is 36 and the sum of their ages is equal to my house number.
My friend who has a sharp and logical mind, requested me for another hint. I then told him that my eldest son has blue eyes! Following this he quickly told me their ages.

Tell me how old are my three sons?

A. 1 year, 1 year and 36 years
B. 1 year, 4 years and 9 years

Chrome OS: What could it mean for Linux?

Posted 07-17-2009 at 02:06 PM by pereb

Last week, Google put an end to the ongoing rumors and officially announced Chrome OS. Marketed as a solution for lower-end PCs and netbooks, Chrome OS is touted as running “within a new windowing system”. What’s interesting, though, is that it will run on top of a Linux kernel. Is Google’s Chrome OS project a step towards legitimizing (in the sense of marketing to the mass public) Linux?

When it comes to operating systems, the public perception is quite narrow. There's Windows,...

The Latest Fad: Open Source?

Posted 07-21-2009 at 04:13 PM by pereb

I’m sure it comes as no surprise that I’m a huge fan of open source development, as I’m sure most of you on here are. I’ve never really understood the mindset of, “We want you to buy and use our software, and you’re able to look at it far more objectively than we can much of the time, but we absolutely do NOT want you to be able to implement your potentially ground-breaking ideas into our software! And we’ll fix our own bugs, on our own time, thank you very much!”

Preplogic

Posted 09-16-2009 at 09:13 AM by lnarea

Does anyone have experience with Preplogic for A+? I'm looking for a certification training company to help me train for my A+ certification. I have heard good things about Preplogic as far as their PMP training from other reviews but I don't know anything about their A+ training. Training is always expensive and I just want to make sure I'm putting my money to a good use. Does anyone have any experience with Preplogic and their A+ program that can help me out?

I work as a level...

Restraining the madness: Python + SSH + pymssql = happy DBA

I routinely get requests from management like "I need a list of the urls and the sizes of databases for our <product_name> sites!" This, I can tell you, is NOT something I want to figure out by hand (not with 300 production databases and a slew of training, demo, test, etc... databases as well). No, there is a better, more relaxed way...a way that includes plenty of time for me to check my e-mail, go get a cup of coffee, and chat with my co-workers...
