VirtualBox resize hard disk error: VBOX_E_NOT_SUPPORTED

There is a error when I tried to resize the VirtualBox hard disk, or vdi file.

Progress state: VBOX_E_NOT_SUPPORTED

VBoxManage.exe: error: Resize hard disk operation for this format is not implemented yet!

 

The command I used to resize vdi file is :

vboxmanage modifyhd "e:\virtual_disk.vdi" --resize 20000

The original size is 8Gb. I want to increase it to 20GB.

 

I did a lot of search and found the problem and solution.

The format of VDI file is not supported by resize function.

Some changes of blog

During past few days, I did some modification on my blog here to accomodate the social media changes.
First, I removed Digg button code from templates. Not just because of the traffic from Digg is very limited, but the Digg API was not working any more. Digg has a big change on their own side. I will wait and see the future of it.
Second, I replace the Facebook like button code from the MovableType plugins code to Facebook native code.
I put it just under the post title, before the content of post. It looks good.
Third, add Twitter button, just add it in the place which Digg used before.
I use the code from Twitter Developer site.

Another VOIP service provider – SmartVoip

From VoipStunt to poivY. Now I start to use SmartVoip.
These three service providers are same compony with different name. And I also think they use same user database.
Because when I try to use same name of VoipStunt on Poivy, it show me that the user name is taken by other people.
They all provide free call to Mainland China on landline and cell when they are just launched. Later, the free cellphone call is taken away. And more later, the China is not free any more. Then I have to switch to another VOIP provider.
So if you have time to go through these three provider. It approves my point.
Voipstunt doesn’t provide free minutes to China.
poivY has free call to China, with Landline only.
SmartVoip does provide free Landline and Mobile to China.
SmartVoip has a little bit difference from the others.
It ask for EUO$15 to top up the credit instead of EUO$10.
