If you have a web site of any kind, you probably have dealt with MySQL databases. Sometimes, you need to move your database, whether it’s to another server or back onto your existing server after performing an OS upgrade.
The advice you usually hear goes like this: Export the table structure and data using the
mysql command line utility or with phpMyAdmin. Then reimport the exported data once your install/upgrade is done.
Well, that’s just a serious pain in the arse.
Lucky for you, there’s a very, very easy way to copy your DB over with a few copy commands…
Alrighty, I just can’t stay quiet about this one. I’ve had enough.
I’m talking about Intel’s GMA 500 graphics chip. You know, the one that’s in all those Z-series (and soon Pine Trail-based) netbooks, the one that gets all the bad reviews, and the one that is generally regarded as less capable than even that ancient, stinking heap of a graphics core, the GMA 950.
Well folks, think again. In fact, the GMA 500 is capable of simultaneous decoding of two (yes, two) 1080p streams, 3D graphics, and DirectX 10.1 – and all that in a 2.3W power envelope (at least in the US15W “Poulsbo” chipset).
So why don’t you see this awesome performance on your netbook or MID?
It’s really quite simple…
