Using Sublime Text or gedit when logging as User

For me I used xhost + and it solved the problem.
You can use it when you are working in a  remote instance and you wanna use gedit.
By default, and for security reasons, the only user that interacts with X-server is the logged-in user. Meaning, You can not initiate a connection to x-server as a different user or in your case as root, unless you have overridden the default setting to allow different users/hosts to connect to x-server. So the error message you are getting is related to x-server since any other user can't connect to it. In order to get around it, you have various fixes you can apply. What I normally do when ever I need to run an X-app as root is as follows.
  • From normal user terminal, I run xhost + to grant access to all user temporarily
  • Then I log in as root from a different terminal and execute the X-app ie gedit tester.php
To make it permanent (which I don't suggest), edit /etc/profile and add the following line:
export XAUTHORITY=/root/.Xauthority

NOCOPY Parameter Hint in PL/SQL

Before we get to understanding the NOCOPY parameter hint in PL/SQL, it would help to first look at PL/SQL parameter modes and the ways in which they pass values in and out of a subprogram.





PL/SQL subprograms have three parameter modes:

IN parameter mode is used to send values into the subprogram from the calling program. An IN parameter can only be read, its value cannot be modified inside the subprogram.OUT parameter mode is used to return values from the subprogram to the calling program. IN OUT parameter mode is a hybrid of IN and OUT. It is used to send values into the subprogram, and its value can be modified within the subprogram. On exit, the subprogram returns the updated value of the IN OUT parameter to the calling program.  Continue reading at

Bitnami makes it easy to run your favorite server apps anywhere



Bitnami is a library of popular server applications and development environments that can be installed with one click, either in your laptop, in a virtual machine or hosted in the cloud. We take care of compiling and configuring the applications and all of their dependencies (third-party libraries, language runtimes, databases) so they work out-of-the-box. The resulting packaged software (a 'stack') is then made available as native installers, virtual machines and cloud images. These Bitnami application packages provide a consistent, secure and optimized end-user experience when deploying any app, on any platform.

The Miraculous Plants

It was a very cold winter, with snow everywhere. For the eastern tribe, it was a terrible time .many people were sick and there was no medicine to help them .every day, people died .the leader didn't know what to do .his cute son, Bassou, was also very ill. If he couldn't help him, he was going to die, and thus the tribe will die out.
The leader sat by his fire, but he didn't feel warm. ''It’s the end '', he thought.’ If he dies, I don't want to live '' he looked into the fire. The wood burnt noisily.



Suddenly, he remembered his wiser teacher, and he heard his fierce words ''you must save your son, and your tribe .go and look for the medicine! There is a medicine for everything. Go quickly! It will soon be too late ''
The leader began his journey that night. He walked through the snow and the dark forest all night. In the morning, he was cold and hungry. '' How can I find the medicine plants which will hel…
