Amazon Kindle update v3.1

Amazon send me a email regarding the Kindle software update.
In the next few days, when you turn on WiFi connection on your Kindle, the update may automatically run under the background.
The new version is Kindle Software Update Version 3.1
New Features Included in Free Software Update
* Real Page Numbers
Many titles in the Kindle Store now include real page numbers, making it easy to reference and cite passages and read alongside someone reading the print book in a book club or class. Page numbers will also be available on our free “Buy Once, Read Everywhere” Kindle apps in the coming months. As with all of Kindle’s features, we want you to lose yourself in the author’s words, so page numbers and locations are only displayed when you press the Menu button.
* Public Notes
This feature lets Kindle users choose to make their book notes and highlights available for others to see. Any Kindle user — including authors, their fans, book reviewers, professors and passionate readers everywhere — can opt-in to share their thoughts on book passages and ideas with friends, family members, colleagues, and the greater Kindle community of people who love to read. To review and turn on Public Notes in your own books, view the Public Notes of people you follow, track your reading activities, see Popular Highlights and your annotations, and view your full library of books, go to
* Before You Go …
When you reach the end of the book, you can now immediately rate the book, share a message about the book with your social network, get personalized recommendations for what to read next, and see more books by the same author.
* New Newspaper and Magazine Layout
A new browsing layout makes it easy to scan newspapers and magazines more quickly.

How to add one string to all rows of one column

I have a MySQL database. There is one table has thousands rows of data. I need to add one string to every rows of one column.

It is a very popular scenario. Looks like in the middle of using one database, the developer need a new column with a default value in it.

Yes, he can setup a default value, but what about the existing data. The answer is shown below.


| fieldA |  fieldB        |  fieldC | 
|  22    |  star          |     2   |
|  23    |  super         |     2   | 
|  24    |  savemore      |     1   |
|  25    |  justtolook    |     4   |
|  26    |  bestbook      |     4   |

I add this string to all rows of fieldB, just after the existing data.

The SQL script is used to do this job shown as below

WordPress upgrade to 3.0.4

As Matt mentioned, it is a security update. You have to update your WordPress installation as soon as possible.
I did it when I received the email and read the message from Matt.

Version 3.0.4 of WordPress, available immediately through the update page in your dashboard or for download here, is a very important update to apply to your sites as soon as possible because it fixes a core security bug in our HTML sanitation library, called KSES. I would rate this release as “critical.”

Security is the top issue of all kinds of web sites, including weblog or blog.

Update Syntaxhighlight 3 on Movabletype

I use SyntaxHightlight for codes showing tools on Movabletype for many years.
From 1.0 to 2.0. Now it is v3.0
The official site released v3.0.83.
I like this new release, which has some new features I love.
It remove the flash support.
Previous version has a flash file, which used to select code and copy the code. Now it remove the flash. Double click on the code can let user select code. Then user can use Ctrl+C to copy code.
Double click to select the content is very common practice. Remove flash is also a good choice.
Autoloader save a lot of download bytes.

SyntaxHighlighter comes with almost 30 brushes out of the box. One of the most requested feature has been the ability to dynamically load them without having to load them all on the same page.
