Drupal sessions table expiring on Ubuntu/Deb boxes

Ubuntu and Debian boxes don't ship with PHP's garbage collector turned on, so it never triggers what ever code needs to happen to clean up your session handling system.

So on CMS's like Drupal 5 and Drupal 6 you end up with really huge session tables, but there is a fix.

Munin graph your Drupal response times for user logins

Munin is a wonderful tool, it is best explained by the project itself.. Munin is a networked resource monitoring tool that can help analyze resource trends and "what just happened to kill our performance?" problems. It is designed to be very plug and play. A default installation provides a lot of graphs with almost no work.

Hello world on Android Nexus One!

I had a bash at the Android SDK with Eclipse, seems pretty decent, even had a working emulator, in an hour I managed to

- Get a working development environment
- Learn about basic HTTP connections
- Test the application in the emulator
- Upload my app to my nexus one android (2.2 cyanogenmod)

My first app just (without much error checking) displays the contents from the CHANGELOG.txt of this site, but atleast I know how to get some data from the net and display it.
