CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC)


Found this interesting video on youtube yesterday.
It explains clearly what happens in the LHC, the BIG Event to understand the concepts of Big-Bang theory was successfully executed by CERN team last Wednesday (10 September 2008) in Geneva, Switzerland.

In my view it is not a waste of time or Money. It's an effort which should be Appreciated. More over I came to know there are myths about this event that it might become a disaster to the world and some people fear it might create a black hole on earth and so on... It's a well controlled observation environment and all safety factors should have been taken care. So no need to worry, relax... and Enjoy the video :)

To display Percentage symbol in Fusion chart


In fusioncharts if you give numbersuffix='%' alone, it will not work. You need to give numbersuffix='%25' to display '%' as suffix.

Solution for SSIS job : The package execution failed. The step failed.


I created a dtsx package which will fetch data from Excel file and insert them into respective SQL Server table. When i run the package from SQL Server Business Intelligence Development studio it works fine. When i run package from Command prompt also it works fine. But when we create it as a SQL Server Agent Job, It says the following error.

The package execution failed. The step failed.

I found this article from Microsoft Support team for all scenarios while execution of Job failed.

It was clear, in my case it was permission issue, So i kept looking for blogs on such case. Managed to find this blog which helped me to solve the issue.

Following are two points which i believe, did the trick for me...

1. Under SQL Server Configuration Manager:

* Right click SQL Server Agent(MSSQLSERVER)

SQL Server Configuration Manager

* Click Properties

* Select radio button this Account, Gave the User Name & Password (the user name with which i have created the .dtsx package )

Click Properties

2. In Computer Management(Right click on my computer & Click Manage)

* Under Local Users and Groups
* Under Groups
* In Properties add the user name with which i have created the .dtsx package

In Computer Management

These steps solved my problem, Hope this should be helpful :)

Google Chrome : Solution : Application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005)


Here is the solution for the error : "Application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005)" when you run Google Chrome after installation.

This is for Symantec EP users, you need to change the following registry entry and restart the machine.

In Regedit:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SYSTEM -> CurrentControlSet -> Services -> SysPlant

Edit Value of Start REG_DWORD to 4

Got this solution from Symantec Forum. Now Chrome works fine on my machine!

Enjoy Chromeing :)
