Hi all, I use the 9292 prefix for calls to the UK on MTN pre-pay. If anybody doesnt know its a lot cheaper than just dialing the number. But im not sure if sending a text message this way the message actually gets there, can anybody confirm this? Thanks.

Oracle and SQLA lot of Oracle customers are concerned about being locked into a single vendor with high licensing costs. Very often they realize this situation when the time to upgrade or modernize their environment comes.Microsoft SQL Server cut down its costs by consolidating databases, allocating resources, compressing data, virtualizing servers more effectively, and managing policies. We can utilize SQL Server’s self-service business intelligence capabilities. As a result, this provides end-users with the ability to create their ad-hoc reporting. So, organizations can significantly reduce their dependence on IT.Using Microsoft SQL Server (SSMA), we can help Oracle customers achieve the performance, scale, and security that their applications require while keeping costs in control.Why should an organization shift from Oracle to SQL Server?The fact is that Oracle requires a major investment. An individual that has embraced this technology also understands the size of the impression throughout their technology stack it probably has. Nobody buys Oracle licensing for small or even medium organizations. Comparing SQL Server Enterprise’s total price to Oracle’s price is a big difference. The reason is quite simple. An enormous number of mid and large-sized organizations currently utilize Oracle database as part of their overall IT stack. Many of these organizations are still using the on-premise database version. As the size of organizational data increases, their database ecosystem begins to get expanded, requiring better management, higher storage, and processing power which unfortunately increases the overall cost. With this high data volume, many companies find it difficult to maintain their databases at optimum costs while addressing the growing complexity.Just the once organizations recognize and buy into the benefits of migrating enterprise applications to the cloud, they then need to evaluate which platforms make the most sense for future growth. In a nutshell, they need a platform that will provide improved performance and operational benefits at an optimized cost structure. Two of the major alternatives to Oracle on-premise databases are migrating to Oracle Cloud or Microsoft SQL server (hosted in Azure cloud or on-premise).SQL Server Migration Assistant (SSMA) Migration Steps:SQL Server Migration Assistant (SSMA) for Oracle helps you convert Oracle database schemas to SQL Server schemas. SSMA upload the resulting schemas into SQL Server and migrate data from Oracle to SQL Server. In these steps, we can see how the installation process, and then also it will help to familiarize you with the SSMA user interface.Oracle SSMA (SQL Server Migration Assistant) is a complete environment that helps you quickly migrate Oracle databases to SQL Server, Azure SQL Data Warehouse or Azure SQL DB. By using SQL Server Migration Assistant for Oracle, you can evaluate database objects and data, assess databases for migration, migrate database objects to SQL Server, Azure SQL DB, or Azure SQL Data Warehouse, and then migrate data to SQL Server, Azure SQL Data Warehouse or Azure SQL DB. Remind that you cannot migrate SYS and SYSTEM Oracle schemas.To successfully migrate objects and data from Oracle databases to SQL Server, Azure SQL DB, or Azure SQL Data Warehouse, use the following steps:Step 1:- Create a new SSMA project: After you create the project, you can set project conversion, migration, and type mapping options. To know project settings, see Setting Project Options (OracleToSQL) and know about how to customize data type mappings, see Mapping Oracle and SQL Server Data Types (OracleToSQL).Step 2:- Connect to the Oracle database server.Step 3:-Connect to an instance of SQL Server.Step 4:- Map Oracle database schemas to SQL Server database schemas.Step 5:- Optionally, Create assessment reports to assess database objects for conversion and estimate the conversion time.Step 6:-Convert Oracle database schemas into SQL Server schemas.Step 7:- Load the converted database objects into SQL Server. You can do this by saving a script and run it in SQL Server and synchronize the database objects.Step 8:- Migrate data to SQL Server.Step 9:- If necessary, update database applications.Migration from Oracle to Microsoft SQL can be a smooth venture if you have expertise in both databases. A well-made migration plan that includes the considerations given above will help minimize potential issues during and post-migration.If you need support from a partner who has done similar Oracle to SQL migrations, a sovereign team of experts can help. We have guided various clients through the considerations referenced above to execute seamless migrations from Oracle to MS SQL.

Model-View-View Model (MVVM)The Model-View-View Model (MVVM) prototype is for more than just Microsoft .NET Framework projects. Discover how to apply it to Android development through its open source counterpart, MvvmCross. For the development of mobile applications, a bulk of app developers used to favor the MVC structure as it was the most straightforward architecture to use. At Sovereign, we provide android app development services, mobile app design and development services to develop custom applications using MVVM model.According to study on the Model View Controller (MVC) design patterns and presentation model, Microsoft introduced MVVM as the preferred pattern in many of its platforms, including Silverlight, Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and Windows Phone. Up till now it’s the pattern of choice in Microsoft frameworks, third-party frameworks make it possible to extend MVVM into other platforms, such as iOS and Android, as well. In this blog we will take a look at the basics of MVVM along with its benefits that we are using in MVVM designing, and then dig into how we apply MVVM to Android applications using the MvvmCross framework.Modularization and Clean ArchitectureModularization in Android apps represents a software design outline that separates functionalities into modules. Every Android application can be modularized by dividing the application module into library modules. The library element will consist its resources, manifest file, and classes. During the end, the build tool will merge it into a single APK.Clean Architecture: The concept of Clean Architecture was originally proposed by Robert C. Martin, known also as Uncle Bob. The key goal of this approach is the separation of concerns to separate your code into independent layers and design it to depend on abstractions instead of concrete implementations.MVVM: Model-view-view model is a software design pattern consisting of three layers:Model (in our architecture in combination with Clean Architecture refers to a domain model, which represents a real state content).View (activities, fragments, it displays data received through view-model).View Model is the View Model represents an abstraction of the view, it receives data from Model; perform necessary UI logic and then expose appropriate data to the View, next to that, View Model manipulate the Model based on actions on the View. The View has a reference to a View Model but View Model doesn’t know anything about the View.Today, in this blog, you can get to know about our primary focus will be specifically on the Android Architecture and on finding out the main difference between Minimum Viable Product (MVP) vs. Model–View–View Model (MVVM). For Android Apps, the two architectures that are highly recommended to use are MVP and MVVM instead of the Clean Architecture and MVC.The Layers of MVVM with Clean Architecture: Even within the Android app architecture we’re using, there are many ways to structure your file/folder hierarchy. I like to group project files based on features. We can choose to free whatever project structure suits. The code is divided into three separate layers:Presentation Layer: This includes our Activitys, Fragments, and View Models. An Activity should be as dumb as possible. Never put your business logic in Activitys. An Activitys will call to a ViewModel and a ViewModel will talk to the domain layer to perform actions. A View Model never talks to the data layer directly.Domain Layer: The domain layer contains all the use cases of your application. In this example, we have UseCase, an abstract class. All our UseCases will extend this class.Data Layer: This has all the repositories which the domain layer can use. Data layer exposes a data source API to outside classes.MVVM with Clean architecture is a topic that never gets old in the Android Development. Preferably, it should be the biggest layer, in Android Apps development usually tends. Sovereign developers makes easier to understand Android mobile app development using MVVM with architecture components given above.

I am starting up my own small business near Larnaca and I am looking to set up a basic website to complement my advertising. All I need is a simple homepage, a few pictures of my business and contact details. Nothing complicated or expensive, just simple and effective. Ideally I would like the ability to maintain the website ideally though not essential. Also domain registration & hosting. My problem is that the companies who offer web services are either aimed at corporate businesses and are therefore, expensive.....or simply don't reply to my emails/calls. I have spent hours online and seem to be getting nowhere!?!?! Is there anyone who would recommend a company offering web solutions which you have found to be helpful and relatively inexpensive for similar requirements? Any help from anyone would be grately appreciated! Justin

HI, anybody got any recommendations for free web hosting, without forced ads, but own advertising allowed. With PHP, CGI, MySql.I'm using one at the moment but having so much trouble with what I beleive are forced scripts (analytics) that my rss feeds won't validate. Want to move 3 sites to new free host temporarily, if any good I don't mind paying for hosting later. Please leave any recommendations on here, and any personal comments about them. Many thanks.

If you buy an item at Dixon’s Travel on exiting UK airports, and then you change your mind, it is virtually impossible to receive a refund on return if goods.After receiving inaccurate advice from a Dixon’s salesman at Gatwick South (store o845), I returned an item in their advice in order to get another despatched to Cyprus.  The replacement item never arrived and Dixon’s refuse to refund until they receive the item that they posted!  Be be very very careful if you buy at Dixons

HiUntil recently, it was possible to make cheap landline calls from Cyprus to the UK, by dialling 1018 before the full number. Cyta have now withdrawn this facility. Is anyone aware of a similar means whereby it's possible to make cheap calls home (whether it be landline or mobile)?Many thanks in anticipation.
