- How to remove the spam messages from
Wiki talk (or discussion) pages? Well, there are always not invited

TPC-H is an ad-hoc, decision
support benchmark. It is a very famous benchmarking specification
for commercialized enterprise database vendors. The problem is thus
for MySQL, which is the biggest open-source database, no proper
supports exist. So I prepared the instruction for whom wants to test
TPC-H at their personal computer on top of MySQL.
Project/EFIM/TPC-H will give you a
complete overview on my experiment.
- A statistical GUI named eGoogle is
available for fun that measures the popularity of multiple keywords
over various media sources (web page, blog, news, image, video and
even patents plus). It uses Google Ajax Search
API and its GUI uses
eGoogle for details and visit the demo
site at http://www.pilhokim.com/project/egoogle/. You will find
out whom between two candidates is more popular in the wired world.
- Have you been amazed with Wikipedia by
its power, knowledge and active contents updated by numerous
Internet users? Have you been thinking using Wikipedia at your
desktop? If you are willing to spend some hours to have it on your
PC for research purposes like me, then see Import Wikipedia
database dump files for
details to import Wikipedia
It will also describe my hands-on experiences.

It was around 1995 that I first met Latex to prepare MS thesis. Using
the HP workstation with UNIX, debugging Latex codes was horrible
experience. Everybody would admit the beauty of Latex DTP environments
though. In 2009, we have much better tool that provides WYSIWYG Latex
environment. It still has many features to improve but I like it. Visit
Bakoma Tex site.
Text to MS-Word
The other headache with LaTex is that more and more people use MS-Word
rather than LaTex. So to work in collaboration with them, you need to
convert the LaTex file to MS-Word. In practice direct LaTex-to-Word
conversion does not work well. Rather, PDF-to-MS-Word conversion is
better supported. And even there are free services on the Web, which is
a good thing :)
I assume that you know how to create PDF from tex. You may use DvitoPDF
or PDFLatex or many other things. Once you have a pdf file in your hand.
Then visit PDF Online.
They provide a free conversion process. In doing so, too large PDF
conversion misses pages from the end. I split the big file into smaller
ones with less than 50 pages. But sometimes you need to repeat the job
to fill up missing pages.
When converting PDF, use DView of Bakoma Tex and open .dvi. Then export
to PDF. This results in the best MS-Word conversion results.
