අන්තර්ජාලයේ සැරිසැරන විට අපේ ගතිය දැනීම

අප අන්තර්ජාලයේ කොපමණ සැරිසැරුවද අපගේම කියා හැගීමක් ඇතිවන්නේ සිංහල වෙබ් අඩවියකට ඇතුල් වූ විටය.
නමුත් අපට එම අත්දැකීම ලැබීමට ඇති ඉඩකඩ සීමා වී ඇත්තේ එවන් වෙබ් අඩවි දුලබ වීම නිසාය.
මේ නිසා අප හැකි හැම විටම අපගේ දැනුම බාවිතා කර සිංහල වෙබ් අඩවි නිර්මාණය කල යුතුය.

Why Sinhala Operating System Does not fit the current user community

I think all of us learn about computers from English Language words. Therefore we know the words and our minds practised these words as pictures and hence it is difficult to overrun that memory with sinhala words (Of course, I think most of us didn't know much about Sinhala).
But We can start from the schools and teach the new generation of students about computers from sinhala language since they didn't have those images. With that approach we can improve the productablity and usabilty of computing much more than right now in the future.
Countries have conquered this world with great thinkers not with great followers

Load Huge Data block into Oracle database

You can use sqlloader to insert or update huge amount of data into an oracle database. All you need is to create a control file and data file according to that.
example control file is shown below (load.ctl)
load data
infile 'b00000004.dat'
badfile 'b00110000.bad'
discardfile 'b00110000.dsc'
INSERT INTO TABLE CHANA_TEST
FIELDS TERMINATED BY "," OPTIONALLY ENCLOSED BY '"'
(R_TYPE,CAUSE,FLAG,A_NUM,B_NUM)

using this control file you can insert data into table chana_test where you have 5 columns in that table. examle data file is shown below.

0,aa,1,"1233","3333"
1,ww,1,"123","32323"
0,aa,1,"1233","3333"
1,ww,1,"123","32323"

once you have these two files you can upload huge number of data in to the database very quickly. All you need to do is run this command and shell prompt.

$sqlldr user/pass control=load.ctl

That's it enjoy.
