PHP and MySQL - efficiency of functions

One nice article with some data thrown in which function is faster - MySQL or PHP.  MySQL wins hands down. good reason why we should use more MySQL functions rather than PHP functions.

Drupal Bangalore User Group - Meet

On June 19th, we have hosted Drupal - Bangalore user group(D-BUG) meet in SPAN premises.
Since in Bangalore, it was just a beginning of Drupal meets, so we decided to keep it short and sweet. which eventually turned out to be with the warmth and energy of the fellow drupalers. we had couple of talks - on Drupal for newbies and other for Drupal + Apache Solr by Anil.
But more nice was to see the energy and enthusiasm to share their drupal stories and their experiences with drupal. Sumeet explained in detail about his experience in building a drupal application on top of a gaming site. 
Anil was instrumental in set the ball rolling and answering the general Drupal related queries. 
In morning, Umesh (SPAN general manager) welcomed the drupalers and Latish and SPAN PHP team oversaw the arrangements and agenda. 
It was fun day sharing the thoughts with fellow drupalers and put them in our workplaces. 
That's the theme of the open source community which this meet lived upto.

ZOHO - Actionable search

ZOHO is a company which I am very much follow its offerings. It has got a innovative streak, hard to match. In the enterprise cloud computing, it is one of the companies who has the mettle to make it big. In this blog, I have covered some aspects of it here and here 
Today, they have launched an innovation in enterprise search - 'actionable search'.  We have got used to watching hyperlinks and in some cases content. but our seach never grew beyond rating, customize the search results etc. This is a giant step firmly setting the focus back on search. 
Right now, every seach engine was focusing on how to satisfy the user with its search result. and remains silent after that. ZOHO asks after we have delivered the correct search result then what you do next? 
It will be a nice to see it merged with universal search.
