Smart Tennis Gear

After experimenting with tennis for a couple of weeks on beginners racket, my coach told me that I will get at least 25% improvement in game by getting a better racket. While searching for suitable racket on forums, I found this Sony Smart Sensor that works in couple of compatible rackets of selected manufacturers.

Based on availability, reviews and other playing preferences, I decided to go with Prince 107T racket that was compatible with Sony Smart Sensor.

The feel and crispy sound of new racket felt great on first day of play. The sensor generated lots of data in 30 minutes of playing. I can’t make sense of data at this time, but hopefully it will give trends in longer run and hint the flaws and improvements in the game.

I used the sensor with iPhone and iPad and it was quite easy to setup through its app.

Backup All mysql Databases in Plesk

After painful many years of server migrations for clients, finally found a single line script online for dumping all databases. I made a minor modification for Plesk so that it can take the encrypted password from Plesk and pass it to mysql.

It finds all the databases in your Plesk install and dumps them each into individual gzipped file.

for I in $(mysql -uadmin -p`cat /etc/psa/.psa.shadow` -e 'show databases' -s --skip-column-names); do mysqldump -uadmin -p`cat /etc/psa/.psa.shadow` $I | gzip > "$I.sql.gz"; done

Inside the Vatican

Amazing tour from inside the Vatican. Camera couldn’t do justice in capturing the massive man-made structure. There were also gigantic pipe organs with choir playing inside that added a mystical ambience. Also visited the Vatican Museum inside it but cameras were not allowed there.

First Night at Rome

Some pictures from first night at Rome. It felt like I was walking through a living museum in magical atmosphere with perfect weather.
