Inside Adobe Flash CS 5.5?

"The new features in Flash Professional CS5 should bring smiles to the faces of both designers and developers. Two big improvements in the way Flash handles video are the ability to preview an imported video on the Stage and adjust its parameters on the fly."
"Personally, I already have a project on the burner that the new tools and features in Flash CS5 will shorten development time and more than pay for the price of the upgrade from CS4."
Cyndy Cashman, Layers Magazine, 
April 23, 2010

Adobe® Flash® Professional CS5.5 software is the industry-leading authoring environment for producing expressive interactive content. Create immersive experiences that present consistently to audiences across desktops, smartphones, tablets, and televisions.

What's new in Flash Professional
  • Efficient workflows for mobile development
  • Content scaling when resizing stage
  • Enhanced layer control 
  • Symbol rasterization and better performance
As a core component of the Adobe Flash Platform, Adobe Flash Player allows you to make your web content contextually relevant and reach more users across a wide spectrum of Internet-connected devices, including smartphones, tablets, netbooks, TVs, and PCs. New device-ready features take advantage of native device capabilities that include support for touch, gestures, input models, accelerometer, browser, and additional purpose-built hardware to bring unprecedented creative control and expressiveness to the device browsing experience.

Deprecated commands Oracle 11gR2

The most used to command "crs_stat -t" is deprecated on 11gR2. Instead you would use -
  crsctl status resource [the output will be status of all resources]

You can still use the "-t" option to get a tabular report though ;)
    crsctl status resource -t

 Specify resource name "ora.mydb.test" to get the status of any particular resource -
   crsctl status resource ora.mydb.test

In fact, quite a few commands have been deprecated in 11gR2; For the complete list refer to

What is Orastack ?

ORASTACK is an Oracle supplied utility specifically for Windows Operating system. It allows us to modify the default stack size of a thread/session when created in the Oracle executable. It should be run against a specific Oracle binary such as "sqlplus.exe", "tnslsnr.exe" etc. It alters the part of the binary header that defines the default stack size used by "the create thread API".

By reducing the stack of every session created in the Oracle executable, it is possible to serve more users. In a system with a 1000 users reducing the
stack from 1Mb to 500K would release 500Mb of the address space for other
allocations or more users. However if its set too low then session might fail with ORA-3113 error.

MySql Best Opensource Database for Ruby on Rails

RoR is being highly discussed phrase in the realm of web development. Thinking why is it so? Ruby on Rails can be defined as a full stack framework which means that this framework covers everything which is needed to build a web application. It is an open source web application framework that can help you building web applications with an out of the box architecture. It is written in Ruby which is an object oriented language with clean syntax that can make programming enjoyable. Moreover Rails could help you creating a web application almost ten times faster than you do with regular java framework and that too without compromising with the quality. As it uses the MVC architecture pattern, it organizes the application programming that provides flexibility and simplicity. RoR is a great framework for them who have high timeliness and budget constraint.

While SQLite3 is extremely convenient for development and testing databases, and PostgreSQL has powerful Generalized Search Tree indexes and is very close to being enterprise-ready, MySQL is the choice for many Web sites thanks to its excellent read performance, transparent support for large text and binary objects, and incredibly easy administration. Stored procedures, functions, triggers, and updateable views were added to MySQL in version 5, overcoming the largest technical objections to its deployment at many sites. MySQL also has a large, helpful user base, and some poster-child deployments including eBay, Yahoo, and Craigslist.
You can download MySql module for ruby on rails from link given below.

Common ways to redirect website

However there are many ways to redirect website's but here are simple ways by examples, This question often comes in-front of you when giving interview for web designer or developer.

For this example I will use the website:
Let’s say this site is build in the folder: /folder/ we need a redirect from

META Tags:
Create in the root of your domain an index.html and use a meta-refresh tag in the of your HTML.
This way of redirecting is according to W3C not so nice, and it also will have a delay.
You can set this delay, however I set it to 0.

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;URL=" />

Link :
Not so nice, but to most accessible way, is to just create an empty index.html with an hyperlink
to your new folder.
