These days, everyone has a good reason to have a website. It's not just large companies anymore. Individuals, families, and small or independent businesses all need to have one. Some individuals and small businesses don't have the financial resources to hire a website development company or a freelance web developer to create a website for them. This is where WordPress comes in very handy. WordPress is an open source web software application that you can use to create and maintain an online website, even if you have a minimum of technical expertise.
Since it is a web application, WordPress does not need to be installed on your home computer. It can live on the server (a kind of computer) that belongs to your website hosting company. It is also free, easy to use, and packed with excellent features. Originally, WordPress was an application meant to run a blog website, but it has now evolved into a fully-featured Content Management System (CMS). In this article we will cover some of the most frequently asked questions on WordPress 3.Read FAQs on WordPress 3 in full
The term High Availability means that the servers or systems that host or run the business-critical applications should be highly available - 24 X 7 and 99.99% up time. As the word itself defines how important it is to make these applications and data available for end-users as well as business users, if this data is not available for a short time, it will be a big problem for both sets of users. Imagine a bank spread across the country and having a huge customer base faces a situation when, their server crashes! If the bank relies only on backups, then it might end up losing approximately 15 to 30 minutes of data, depending on the backup strategy. Now the HA options related to SQL Server such as Clustering, Replication, Log Shipping, and Database Mirroring will help overcome this situation.

Facebook has a huge store of information, on people, companies, events, photo albums, and more. It also knows how all of these are linked: which person owns each album; which people appear in each photo; which company is organizing each event.
For four years, this was accessed using a huge, sprawling API, which got more complex as new abilities were bolted on to it. In April 2010, Facebook launched the Graph API, greatly simplifying how developers can retrieve all of this data.

In this two-part article by Hector R. Madrid, we will learn about the External Tables in Oracle 10g/11g Database. When working in data warehouse environments, the Extraction—Transformation—Loading (ETL) cycle frequently requires the user to load information from external sources in plain file format, or perform data transfers among Oracle database in a proprietary format. This requires the user to create control files to perform the load. As the format of the source data regularly doesn't fit the one required by the Data Warehouse, a common practice is to create stage tables that load data into the database and create several queries that perform the transformation from this point on, to take the data to its final destination.Read External Tables in Oracle 10g/11g Database: Part 1 in full
