Cloud storage is all the rage nowadays, and Box is doing a promotion that’s sure to make those of you who just can’t get enough happy: the company is giving away free-for-life 50GB accounts to anyone who downloads and uses the updated Android app by March 23rd.
I applied my first Box.net account from my computer. It said I have 5GB free space with 25MB file size limitation.
Then I use my Android cellphone, HTC Desire HD to download the app and enter my account.
The message said I have be upgrade to 50GB free space. And the file size limit is 100MB.
Last week, I got my new cellphone, HTC Desire HD. I used this cellphone two months as a temporary replacement last year. I feel it is a good Android phone.
So, when I am asked to pick one replacement as a new cellphone. I chose HTC Desire HD.
Telus send it in two days after ordering by phone.
It is a small box.
Look at the box
Took the phone and see the back of it and stuff in side of the box.
When I use a ASP script to retrieve the data from a Access MDB file, I got an error: collating sequence not supported with the specified file format.
Actually, it happened when I move the site to a new server.
The solution was to go to the File tab in 2010, click the options link and set the sort order for new databases to ‘General – legacy’.

Account and IP Lockout

Stronger Password Encryption
I move one site to a new server with Windows 2003.
It is a MySQL database. I use PHP script to connect the database file and query it.
I run the same script more than 5 years on the old server. After I move it to new one, it gives me the error as subject.
I did a lot of Googling. Found the answer at this blog(the link is not working any more), but now it is not available. So, I quoted the most important part from the Google Cached page.
This is an sql-mode issue, the mode defines what SQL syntax should be supported and what kind of data validation should be performed. In my problem MySQL is trying to assign an empty string to an auto-increment INT field and, as we should all know, strings into INTs don’t go. Cue errors and the script dies.
Longer term I am going to have to re-work my code to fix this issue, but in the short term, I am going to reduce the sensitivity of the control. To lower the level of data validation we can set the sql-mode to a lower level or comment it out altogether.
Solution is below:
Edit the my.cnf (my.ini in windows) file and find and comment out the line:
