In 2010, I wrote an article about Input Director, since then a new application has emerged for sharing mouse and keyboard over network for Windows: Mouse without Borders
It’s a simplified version of Input Director, with a handy feature – shared clipboard and the ability to copy and paste files between workstations.
A screenshot of the setup between my PC and laptop:
Mouse without Borders can be downloaded here and configured within a few seconds :)

As of Kloxo 6.1.7, it now supported on 64-bit CentOS systems !
For all of who wanted Kloxo on CentOS 5 64-bit can now do so. I have installed Kloxo on CentOS 5.7 64-bit and everything appears to working 100% !

In Windows 7, there is a bug with wmic and the /format switch. When using the /format switch, you will get the error “Invalid XSL format (or) file name.”
C:\Tmp>wmic /output:C:\tmp\procinfo.html CPU get Description,
DeviceID, Manufacturer, MaxClockSpeed, Name, Status, SystemName /format:hform.xsl
Invalid XSL format (or) file name.
Windows looks for the XSL stylesheets but cannot find them, which produces the error above.
Copy *.xsl from x:\Windows\system32\wbem\en-US\ to x:\Windows\system32 – this can be done quicky from command prompt:
copy /y %WINDIR%\system32\wbem\en-US\*.xsl %WINDIR%\system32\
If you run your original wmic command (example in Section 1), there will be no errors and wmic will export data in the format required.

This is a quick article that describes how to reset/delete/disable/clear MySQL replication in master-master or master-slave replication.
For each server that you wish to reset/clear MySQL replication on, do the following:
1. Enter MySQL prompt and run the following commands:
mysql> STOP SLAVE; CHANGE MASTER TO MASTER_HOST=''; RESET SLAVE;
2. Remove replication user(s). In this example, we remove replication user “replicator”:
mysql> use mysql;
mysql> delete from user where User="replicator";
mysql> flush privileges;
3. Exit MySQL prompt and open up /etc/my.cnf – remove any reference to replication (eg: replicate-* master-* etc)
# vim /etc/my.cnf
4. Lastly, restart your MySQL instance:
# /etc/init.d/mysqld restart

Disable EPEL Repo:
If you want to disable the EPEL repo on your server, set “enabled=0″ in “/etc/yum.repos.d/epel.repo”:
