Brendon McCullum blasts Derbyshire with a 42 ball Century July 04, 2015 19:28

New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum's explosive hitting saw him set a new record in the English T20 Blast competition on Friday with a blistering 158 not out off 64 balls for his county Warwickshire. The 33-year-old flayed the Derbyshire attack, bringing his century up off 42 balls and his final total equaled a previous score he hit for Kolkata Knight Riders in the first-ever IPL match in 2008 -- that one coming off 73 balls.McCullum's innings -- which included 11 sixes and 11 fours -- is the second highest T20 score ever, behind West Indian batsman Chris Gayle's 175 in the Indian Premier League in 2013.McCullum, who recently signed a one-year extension to his contract with the national side despite fears over a persistent back problem, broke the previous mark of 153 set by Luke Wright for Sussex in 2014. - Manohar

Rajamouli's Baahubali, the one name that is driving all the craze these days. Not only from the movie unit, any kind of Baahubali related information on the net is creating the waves. Especially the spoofs on Baahubali have already become very famous and the concerned developers of the spoofs are able to see the ocean of views on YouTube. If this is the case with just spoofs before the release of the film, what would be the position if the entire film is pirated and released on the net?Also read: Baahubali aims Guinness recordEvery big film is facing the piracy problem and films like Pawan Kalyan's Attharintiki Daredi had to face the issue before the release itself. So, the industry biggies started maintaining utmost security to their films before release.But a huge film like Baahubali will have a heavy impact on the producer, if it is affected with piracy. To manage this situation, Rajamouli himself entered into the battle field. As the film is releasing in many languages, the censoring will be done under the presence of Rajamouli and his team for all the languages.Also read: Already 83 crores into Baahubali accountRajamouli strictly says that, even after the release of the film, the projector boy should come out of the room immediately, after the projector has started.

10 days to go: Microsoft Windows Server 2003 on the verge of extinction July 04, 2015 17:12

Can a 11-year old mobile compete with the latest smartphone? It cannot. Simply because it cannot perform all the tasks, which a latest smartphone can do.Will you use an old elevator, which doesn’t have any support or maintenance? Just because it is functioning. I am sure, you don’t.Same is the case when it comes to a software. The damage at times would cost the company. There is an estimated 23.8 million instances of Windows Server 2003 running across 11.9 million physical servers worldwide. The numbers are absolutely astounding, but now that Microsoft has announced that it is going to stop providing support for the former version and it is only 10 days to go for its extinction, it’s high time for businesses and CIOs to look either for the migration or for a better alternative.According to Spice works, a global professional network of more than 5 million IT Professionals, 64.5% of organizations who use its tools in Asia Pacific are still running at least one instance of Windows Server 2003 as of June 2014. Now, it’s better to see it as an opportunity to make changes to align to a mobile-first, cloud-first world? Many CIOs won’t refuse funding to modernize infrastructure. Because risks involved with running a server software application that is no longer supported include: increased exposure to software failure - Microsoft will stop supporting new software add-ons making updating applications a potentially dangerous gamble; heightened security risks - new security flaws will no longer be patched; and finally one runs the chance of falling out of the compliance good books. For example, according to the credit card industry’s PCI Security Council standards, if an unsupported operating system is Internet-facing, it will be logged as an automatic compliance failure. Additionally, should being compliant with standards such as the PCI Data Security standard and the health industry’s HIPAA not be an issue within the organization, it may still result in the company being cut off from partners seeking to preserve their own compliant status.Also the impact would be on a greater scale than that of Windows XP’s end of support, which was just a desktop operating system. - Manohar
