Limited "unlimited" plans available in Czech T-Mobile

Ufff, Czech T-Mobile sux! Czech is the country having the worst set of operators within emerging markets. Before almost two years I have conclude the agreement with T-Mobile. Unlimited whenever minutes to five numbers for 500 czech crowns per month. Looks good.

Till next month, T-Mobile is changing the agreement to 300 whenever minutes in the same price. Sounds almost illegal. I don't want to T-Mobile wrong, you can quit your agreement but you have to do it 20 days before new policy will start to serve. I'll bet that 90% of customers let it alone.

Honestly, described policy change comes in useful to me. I have consider to leave T-Mobile to Vodafone in four months but I'm (actually was) still under contract so I can legally quit my contract right now. Good for me but I don't understand the arrogance of T-Mobile guys.

Beside this issue I'm really disappointed of their mobile internet. I'm paying 10 euro per month to 100MB FUP mobile internet with port restriction. It means that sometimes I get invoice having variable amount of paid internet. Why? I run Twitter or Facebook app which doesn't use standard 80 port. It sucks, it really sucks!

Czech T-Mobile is really funny company at all. Their web portal mainly doesn't work. I got 50% failure last month. I would like to know which company make this terrible piece of **** for them.

The worst thing? I believe that they can't afford such poor approach to customer in original T-Mobile country - Germany. But we still live in Czech.

NHibernate performance issues #3: slow inserts (stateless session)

The whole series of NHibernate performance issues isn't about simple use-cases. If you develop small app, such as simple website, you don't need to care about performance. But if you design and develop huge application and once you have decided to use NHibernate you'll solve various sort of issue. For today the use-case is obvious: how to insert many entities into the database as fast as possible? Why I'm taking about previous stuff? The are a lot of articles how the original NHibernate's purpose isn't to support batch operations , like inserts. Once you have decided to NHibernate, you have to solve this issue. Slow insertion The basic way how to insert mapped entity into database is: SessionFactory.GetCurrentSession().Save(object); But what happen when I try to insert many entities? Lets say, I want to persist 1000 libraries each library has 100 books = 100k of books each book has 5 rentals - there are 500k of rentals  It's really slow! The inser

Performance Battle of NoSQL blob storages #1: Cassandra

Preface We spend last five years on HP Service Virtualization using MsSQL database . Non-clustered server. Our app utilizes this system for all kinds of persistence. No polyglot so far. As we tuned the performance of the response time - we started at 700ms/call and we achieved couple milliseconds per call at the end when DB involved - we had to learn a lot of stuff. Transactions, lock escalation , isolation levels , clustered and non clustered indexes, buffered reading, index structure and it's persistence, GUID ids in clustered indexes , bulk importing , omit slow joins, sparse indexes, and so on. We also rewrite part of NHibernate to support multiple tables for one entity type which allows use scaling up without lock escalation. It was good time. The end also showed us that famous Oracle has half of our favorite features once we decided to support this database. Well, as I'm thinking about all issues which we encountered during the development, unpredictive behavio

Jenkins + git revision in all build names

Jenkins by default assigns version of a build using local counter within each type of a build. An example is better. When you look at this overview, you definitely do not know which code revision was used in Compile build and which in Integration Tests . I've followed nice article regarding real CI pipeline using jenkin s. It uses Build Name Setter Plugin. Unfortunately this article uses SVN revision number. So I said I'll just use git revision as git is my source control. But it's not so easy as how it could seem for first look. My Jenkins setup comprised of first compile build step which clones git server and performs an compilation. Second build steps clones the repository from first step and executes integration tests . The problem here is that the second step does not know which git revision compile step cloned. Here is list of steps how to do that. 1. You obviously need Git Plugin , Build Name Setter Plugin and Parameterized Trigger Plugin 2. Compile
