Image Packaging System-open solaris

The image packaging system, is an attempt to design and implement a software delivery system with interaction with a network repository as its primary design goal. Other key ideas are: safe execution for zones and other installation contexts, use of ZFS for efficiency and rollback, preventing the introduction of incorrect or incomplete packages, and efficient use of bandwidth.
After an initial installation of OpenSolaris 2008.11 operating system, you will find that many of the software applications that you use on a regular basis are not immediately available to you. These software applications are available as packages in a repository for downloading and installing over the internet. A repository is a source for packages.

The Image Packaging System enables users to connect to the repository and download and install packages.

The OpenSolaris 2008.11 release uses IPS for its packaging system. Besides installing packages from a repository, users can create and publish their own IPS packages, set up an OpenSolaris repository, mirror an existing repository, and publish existing packages to a repository.
Once you have installed packages, IPS enables you to search, update, and manage packages on your system.

With IPS , you can upgrade your system to a newer build of OpenSolaris, install and update your software to the latest available versions in a repository, and retrieve packages from mirror repositories.

If the system on which IPS is installed is on the network, IPS can automatically access the OpenSolaris repository. For the OpenSolaris 2008.11 release, your IPS client can access the packages from

Wanna get a lot from life,have lots of wishes then,start saying 'Yes'. Say 'Yes' to each and everything which comes in your way. It will give you the chance of getting new opportunities. It help you to overcome your loneliness and will give you a lot of friends. When you say each 'Yes' it will be a new start for you.

But you are thinking that if you say 'Yes' to each thing it may cause you a trouble, and I can assure you that your right. If you say 'Yes' to each and everything then it will harm,so say 'Yes' but let your heart to say it. Your heart will judge that this is right way or not for you.
So be open and keep saying 'Yes'. :o)

Sun and Oracle

On April 20, 2009, Sun and Oracle announced a definitive agreement under which Oracle will acquire Sun common stock for $9.50 per share in cash. The transaction is valued at approximately $7.4 billion, or $5.6 billion net of Sun's cash and debt. The proposed transaction is subject to Sun stockholder approval, certain regulatory approvals and customary closing conditions. Until the deal closes, each company will continue to operate independently, and it is business as usual.

The acquisition combines best-in-class enterprise software and mission-critical computing systems. Oracle plans to engineer and deliver an integrated system—applications to disk—where all the pieces fit and work together so customers do not have to do it themselves. Customers benefit as their system integration costs go down while system performance, reliability and security go up.

And the last puff of the daywind brought from the unseen villages the scent of damp wood-smoke,hot cakes,dripping undergrowth,and rotting pine-cones.That is the true smell of the Himalayas and if once it creeps into the blood of a man,that man will at the last,forgetting all else,return to the hills to die.


RFID:-Radio frequency identification
RFID is a product,person tracking system,which uses the radio frequency for tracking.The tracking chip is called RFID tag.These tags are applied to or incorporated to the target which is to identify.
RFID is of two types:-
1.Passive RFID:-In passive RFID the tag does not have the battery with it and depends on other system for radio wave transmission.
2.Active RFID:-Active RFID have the battery with it for the radio wave transmission.

RFID tags consist of two parts:-
1.Integrated Chip for storing and processing the information and demodulation of radio signals.
2.Antenna for transmission of the radio waves.

RFID chips can be highly miniaturised,in 2009 researchers at Bristol University successfully glued RFID with live ant.
Smallest RFID:-150X150X7.5 microns(Hitachi)(can store 38 digit number)
Race Timing:-RFID tags can be used to calculate the total time in races.RFID tags are used in various Physical endurance test(PET) by Indian railway and the police.
Passports:-RFID is used in the passports in countries like Norway,Ireland,USA,UK,Japan.
Product Tracking:-RFID tags can be used for the tracking of products and can be used to stop the theft of the products.
Library:-In libraries we can use the RFID in place of the Barcodes.

Replacement of Barcode:-RFID is a potential replacement of the barcodes because RFID tag data capability is large enough that each individual tag will have a unique code,while in barcode we have the same code for the same type of product.With the unique code for each product we can monitor each of them.

Problem and concerns:-
Global Standardization
Security Concern
Passport security like breaking of the encryption used in the passport.
