Enjoy 10GB attachment in Gmail

Its happy news for Gmail users who were facing difficulties in sending a file of size more than 25MB as an attachment through mail. Now you can send even a movie in your mail to anyone. Surprised! Google has announced to integrate Google Drive into Gmail, so that users can be able to insert files from Drive directly into an email without leaving their Gmail. Now you can send files up to 10GB, which is 400 times larger than what you are capable of now. Since the user is sending a file stored in the cloud, all recipients can access the same.

How to change display name in Outlook 2007

If your e-mail recipients see only part of your name, but you want them to see your full name, you can easily make the change in name which you preferred. The display (below screenshot) may show only part of your name which was entered when you first set up your e-mail account.

To display your full name, edit your name in Account Settings.

  1. On the Tools menu, click Account Settings.
  2. On the E-mail tab, select your Internet service provider (ISP) account, and then click Change.
  3. Under User Information, in the Your Name box, type your name the way you want it to appear to people who receive e-mail messages from you. 
  1. Click Next, and then click Finish.

Trace Magic

Here is a tool (TraceMagic) I have come across recently which would be helpful for PeopleSoft admin as well as the developers. TraceMagic is designed primarily to address the difficulty in working with tracesql files when attempting to determine which SQL statement(s), and or People Code programs are causing performance problems. It helps the user to quickly isolate performance bottlenecks in SQL Statements and/or PeopleCode functions by turning the text-based, time-ordered tracesql file into a sortable-grid display.

The size of TraceMagic Installer would be in terms of Kilobytes and the installation part is very simple.  A double-click on setup.exe icon will take care of whole setup. Once the program starts, select the toolbar button "open folder" and browse your computer for a *.tracesql file, then you can view the data in a series of sortable grids. The ‘Statistics’ option will give you a clear picture about the event durations and the kind of DML statements involved. Getting the distinct tables involved in the whole transaction/navigation is possible with this tool.

In session level tracing, while other trace flags settings will work with this tool, it is highly recommended that the flags set during the creation of the tracesql file be those six checked settings shown below. The two additional items that are checked and highlighted are optional.  

Like other utilities, TraceMagic too has certain requirements and restrictions. It requires Microsoft .net Framework Version 4 and is compatible with Windows XP (32-bit) and later releases. It may not function perfectly when multi-line entries are present in a tracesql file. Large tracesql files can severely reduce the performance of TraceMagic, and in cases when file size is near available RAM, it may quit without any warning (crash). Hope this article can save you some time for tea break.
