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 librarieseach library has 100 books = 100k of bookseach book has 5 rentals - there are 500k of rentals It's really slow! The insertion took exactly

Git on Windows: MSysGit

I have started to use Git today. I read a lot of discussions that there is no good tool for Windows platform. After forethought I have decided to used TortoiseGit. I also feared of difficult work related with Git as a lot of articles mentioned many instructions. As I already said, I have decided to use TortoiseGit, because I'm used to work with TortoiseSvn, but for start, MSysGit is enought. So this article is about MSysGit, next will be about TortoiseGit.

How to start with MSysgit on local machine?
Download and install Git for WindowsCreate source code directory for your git appRight click the directory at your favorite file browser. Menu should contain item "Git init here". It initializes chosen directory to be git-abled :-)It was your first usage of Git.

Commit data to local Git repository

Now, you can add any file, your first source code, to created directory. If you are prepared to commit any changes to your local git repository, follow next instructions.

Java, Docker, Spring boot ... and signals

I spend last couple weeks working on java apps running within docker containers deployed on clustered CoreOS machines. It's pretty simple to run java app within a docker container. You just have to choose a base image for your app and write a docker file.

Note that docker registry contains many java distributions usually based on open jdk. We use our internal image for Oracle's Java 8, build on top of something like this docker file. Once you make a decision whether oracle or openjdk, you can start to write your own docker file.

FROM dockerfile/java:oracle-java8
ADD your.jar /opt/your-app
ADD /dependencies /opt/your-app/dependency
WORKDIR /opt/your-app
CMD ["java -jar /opt/your-app/your.jar"]
However, your app would probably require some parameters. Therefore, last line usually calls your shell script. Such script than validates number and format of those parameters among other things. This is also useful during the development phase because none of us want to build …
