JDownloader: hotfile, rapidshare best downloader

I was used Free download manager to download my favorite TV series (e.g. IT Crowd or new interesting BBC's Sherlock) from well know data storages, like rapidshare or hotfile. I've tried JDownloader and I'm really impressed all those features which the tools provides in comparison with standard lightweight managers.


Interesting features
  • you can only copy links to download into the clipboard at your favorite forum, switch the focus back to JDownloader, it automatically use these links as datasource, add them into link grabber and than check their online status (if they are downloadable)! You can see their availability in a few seconds
  • support the usage of huge amount of paid accounts. You simply add your credentials into system, add links and it works - download files - you need obviously possess these accounts :-) 
  • build in extract support - if you add links to the data spread into more rars, the JDownloader's plugin can unrar them after successful download and even delete them when unrar is finally done
  • using pair and free account together - assume that you add two simultaneous downloads and trying to download another file placed on the same storage. JDownloader tries to use free account, wait until the captcha succeeded and download the last one via free account
  • JDownloader also creates container and directory wrapping each download so all files are not downloaded into one directory but spreads into new one according to the downloanded file names
  • great plugin support, automatic computer shutdown is supported too. JDownloader can be also up-dated by fine online updater, it simply download all new system parts or plugins
Downsides? Are you still waiting even with paid account?

I was about to uninstall JDownloader because it always waits even if I correctly set up the pair rapidshare account! What happen? Although I inserted credentials, I didn't enable this account globally for the whole application so JDownloader tries to download all files through free account. Rear. Described global switch is that small check button at the left down application corner.

ETCD: POST vs. PUT understanding

ETCD is distributed key value store used as a core component in CoreOS . I've already send a post earlier this week. Here is a page describing how to use ETCD basic commands = ETCD API. Code snippets placed in a page mostly use put , but ETCD allows to use post as well.  Most of us understand differences between those two commands in a notion of a REST(ful) service, but how does it work in key value store? POST Example over many words. curl -v http://127.0.0.1:2379/v2/keys/test -XPOST -D value="some value" curl -v http://127.0.0.1:2379/v2/keys/test -XPOST -D value="some value" Two same command result into following content: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 { "action" : "get" , "node" : { "key" : "/test" , "dir" : true , "nodes" : [ { "key" : "/test/194" , "value" : &

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
