Steve Jobs’ Last Words

Steve Jobs

Before anything else, a disclaimer; I do not own this article. I just find it inspiring.

Steve Jobs’ Last Words:

I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world.

In others’ eyes, my life is an epitome of success.

However, aside from work, I have little joy. In the end, wealth is only a fact of life that I am accustomed to.

At this moment, lying on the sick bed and recalling my whole life, I realize that all the recognition and wealth that I took so much pride in, have paled and become meaningless in the face of impending death.

In the darkness, I look at the green lights from the life supporting machines and hear the humming mechanical sounds, I can feel the breath of God of death drawing closer…

Now I know, when we have accumulated sufficient wealth to last our lifetime, we should pursue other matters that are unrelated to wealth…

Should be something that is more important:

Perhaps relationships, perhaps art, perhaps a dream from younger days …

Non-stop pursuing of wealth will only turn a person into a twisted being, just like me.

God gave us the senses to let us feel the love in everyone’s heart, not the illusions brought about by wealth.

The wealth I have won in my life I cannot bring with me.

What I can bring is only the memories precipitated by love.

That’s the true riches which will follow you, accompany you, giving you strength and light to go on.

Love can travel a thousand miles. Life has no limit. Go where you want to go. Reach the height you want to reach. It is all in your heart and in your hands.

What is the most expensive bed in the world? – “Sick bed” …

You can employ someone to drive the car for you, make money for you but you cannot have someone to bear the sickness for you.

Material things lost can be found. But there is one thing that can never be found when it is lost – “Life”.

When a person goes into the operating room, he will realize that there is one book that he has yet to finish reading – “Book of Healthy Life”.

Whichever stage in life we are at right now, with time, we will face the day when the curtain comes down.

Treasure Love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends…

Treat yourself well. Cherish others.

Kohana 2.3.4 Documentation

Kohana 2.3.4 Banner

I have been a Kohana application developer for quite a long time now and the version 2.3.4 is still the most comfortable framework to work with, personally at least. I know that there are still a few developers right now looking for the old documentation page which can be of course found in other sources.

I have took it upon myself to host it instead. Visit this link:

I hope this helps someone!

MySQL Migration / Merge Script (Linux)

There are many ways of migrating MySQL data from server to server and its just essential to use mysqldump or any other tools to do the task for you.

The simplest way to do this is via mysqldump (from source) then mysql (into target).

However, in my case I have an already existing database with data and I need to append later data into this database from a more recent mysql data source.

This script will help you accomplish that.

It has simplified the process:
– mysqldump data from source
– import data into target
– will fetch all tables from source and attempt to insert them into the target.
– will only process one table at a time

This works best for database architectures that implement replication. However, ensure that the target slave must be stopped first before running this script to prevent problems due to data inconsistencies.

A limitation of this process is that it is one-way and not bi-directional.

Copy the source-code and paste it into a file. ie.

Tested using the following:
– Centos Linux 7
– MySQL 5.0 Server
– MySQL 5.5 Client

– Does not work with MySQL 5.0 Client
