星軌拍攝技巧 數問 -

1).數碼機因hot pixel而唔適合曝得耐...最好分開影影夠幾個鐘...咁每張間隔之間都要俾CMOS斗下氣?
有師兄 教過 分十幾張 每張 10-20min 再合成 好過 一野 暴 幾粒鐘, (菲林 令計)

2).數碼機有D人話用ISO 100、有人話用ISO 400-800好...如果用合成方法...其實係咪都係就番光害而定...定係關雜訊事?
睇天氣 , 小弟 用 o個次 用 iso 100

5).北極星仰角澳門係23度,咁香港一樣??
4季 都唔同 位置, 用星座 搵 會準確 d, e+ 係 冬季, 北極星 位置 係 獵戶座 (lei 個最易 認, 唔會 搵唔倒 ... ) 頭頂 (腰帶 致 頭頂 距離 再過 5倍左右)

附圖 係 舊年 去雲南 香格里拉 時影, 本泥想 長暴, 不過 o個晚 太涷 個人 頂唔順 要收皮 反酒店

=====
這張是11月15日凌晨拍攝的M42獵戶座星雲, 大埔的光害較嚴重, 所以要加上IDAS V4濾鏡作長時間曝光, 分三段不同時間曝光及作Layer Masking 處理, 把動態範圍拉闊. 在月光的影下算是滿意, 希望之後可以分數晚作10小時以上的曝光並加長每一張frame 的曝光時間 (現在是5分鐘一張), 使到暗位的表現進一步改善.

oracle


Some comment saying that you cannot complain oracle for non-standard setup... However, should I break anything else just to install oracle? Anyway, may be a useful resource of installing oracle cluster - http://thedailywtf.com/forums/65743/ShowPost.aspx

Oracle SQL links - http://mycodeblog.blogspot.com/2007/06/sql-cheat-sheet.html

Pure java solution to full text search - http://www.infoq.com/news/2007/10/lucene-oracle http://marceloochoa.blogspot.com[..]nning-lucene-inside-your-oracle-jvm.html http://dbprism.cvs.sourceforge.net/dbprism/ojvm/

Oracle does allow definitions of user-defined types.Please see
http://download.oracle.com[..]er.111/b28286/sql_elements001.htm#i46376

User-defined types can then be used for column definitions. See e.g.
the fourth example given here
http://download.oracle.com[..].111/b28286/statements_7002.htm#i2062833

Oracle also allows creation of a table based on one user-defined type,
i.e. an "object table".
See here
http://download.oracle.com[..].111/b28286/statements_7002.htm#i2159410

User-defined types can be changed; see
http://download.oracle.com[..].111/b28286/statements_4002.htm#i2057828
Oracle even offers an option as to whether existing data in tables
based on previous type definition is converted or not; see
http://download.oracle.com[..].111/b28286/statements_4002.htm#i2079300
There are a couple of pages in the Object-Relational Developer's Guide explaining the consequences, briefly...

Note: all links above are to Oracle 11g documentation, but many, if not all, of these features have been available since 9i.

SQL 2005 JDBC fix the resultset re-read throws exception problem. However, you need to use executeUpdate() for insert,update and delete instead of execute() for SQL 2005 JDBC, otherwise will throw exception on this.

Other that, statement.executeBatch() will throws exception: http://lab.msdn.microsoft.com[..]kid=e13a8009-7466-4803-ba19-6bfd4b5f8966

Update of newer version - http://www.infoq.com/news/2012/03/T-SQL-2012

New function of SQL server 2014, In-Memory Optimization tables, suppose to be faster? - http://www.infoq.com/news/2013/09/MOT-Indexes MOT table also support native compiled query - http://www.infoq.com/news/2013/09/Compiled-Queries , and lock free write? http://www.infoq.com/news/2013/09/Lock-Free-Writes

From microsoft, Use the columnstore index to achieve up to 10x query performance gains over traditional row-oriented storage, and up to 7x data compression over the uncompressed data size. - http://www.infoq.com/news/2013/09/Clustered-Columnstore

A tool from M$ to help sql server user to manage change of database: http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/teamsystem/products/dbpro/ . Other similar product is DBGhost, also only work for SQL server http://www.innovartis.co.uk/home.aspx

There is a free version of SQL server 2005 call SQL server express, which just like MSDE http://www.microsoft.com/sql/editions/express/redistregister.mspx

Here is a comparison: http://www.sqlmag.com[..]le/ArticleID/49618/sql_server_49618.html , may be we can use that instead of MSDE 2005 and discoutinue support of SQL server 2000 so that we can test one thing less?

三高的飲食要非常注意。
戒口:咖啡會使血管收縮,導致血壓升高。
戒太鹹、煎炸、太甜、肥肉、動物腦子、魚子等。晚上千萬不能吃肉。忌喝牛奶,改喝豆漿,豆漿有降血脂的作用。忌辣椒。忌冷飲。
另一方面,要在平日的飲食中,用以下的食物把自己包圍。
1,果汁、芹菜汁、蘋果汁、橙汁、馬鈴薯汁每天喝,也可以替換着喝。橙汁含豐富的維生素C,英國醫生對641名成年人的血液進行化驗後發現,維生素C含量越高的人,動脈中的血壓越低。蔬菜、檸檬和其他酸味水果,也可起同樣作用。
2,用「鎮江香醋」加蜂蜜,口味自己調,泡蒜頭(去皮)、和花生米(不是炒熟那種)。泡兩星期後可以食用,花生米每早空腹、晚睡前各服10粒,蒜頭兩個星期以後變成綠色,每天吃2至3瓣。兩種食物也可以不加糖,或者分開泡。
3,荷蘭和丹麥的科學家均證實:飲食中含有較高的鈣會使血壓下降。荷蘭的科學家檢查了2300個進食含有較高的鈣質食物的人,發現他們的血壓較正常飲食的人要低。原則上,鈣只能從曬太陽和從植物中補充,洋葱的含鈣極高,英國權威《自然》期刊,把洋葱列為最能有效防止骨質疏鬆的一種蔬菜,其效果甚至比特效藥Calcitonin還好。吃洋葱的方法,參考《嚴浩特選秘方集》第一集。
