How to improve HTC HD2? Use energy ROM!

I'm really satisfied with my cell phone HTC HD2. I've bought the device in February and I truly like the change, the innovation.

Logically, I've started to consider flash HD2 by one of many ROM's developed by guys around xda-developers.

There were three main reasons why I did it.
  • the device suffers by child ailment like wrong delivering of SMS. I've no time to watch and search forums and apply released patches
  • there are a lot of handful applications around HD2
  • there are a lot kinds of settings, it's hard to fine tune the device
The most widely known rom is the Energy rom.

What do you need to do to flash your device? There are two simple steps described in details within the article. Note that you should make the all flash stuff on the notebook to prevent against the blackout.

What the energy ROM brings me?

  • I have got the updated device all the time as I'm flashing it couple times per month. The rom contains almost 40 applications, see the complete list
  • HD2 keeps alive almost three days per one charge! This is the best improvement at all
  • the fine tuned and fresh graphic of sense environment, see screenshots, note that there are seven different graphics designs!
  • the fine tuned environment, all applications works together in the complete bundle
  • the whole device is faster, this is the main reason why "energy" :-)
 NRGZ28 made and is making the great work, I like it and I appreciate that! I also have to admit that sometimes the HD2 went down without any reason but it happen a few times.

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 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 push it to tomcat?
1. First of all, there is simple configuration of tomcat users in file tomcat-users.xml - it was my pain in the ass :-) As original comprehensive documentation says, it's necessary to define user, but which one(s)?

Here is working example of tomcat-users.xml:

<tomcat-users>
<user username="manager-gui" password="changeit" roles="manager-gui"/>
<user username="manager-script" password="changeit" roles="manager-script"/>
