How to make remote desktop RDP connection more responsive.

Working with a slow remote desktop sucks! I cannot take that delay between my click and the action in my remote desktop connections. If you search on the internet for ways to make your remote desktop connection faster, you will find tones of articles about how to reduce the quality of the remote desktop colors and stuff like that. but sometimes that just doesn’t work.

in my case both me and my remote computer are connected to high speed internet, but the responsiveness is still sluggish. the cause of it is the ping. basically the distance.

usually I encounter this problem when I’m working with servers in other countries which are too far from my place. Till now the only solution I found to help with the laggy-ness of remote desktop was to play with bitmapCacheSize property of RDP. which you cannot set it via remote desktop client GUI. but there is a Fix for that.

Running on PHP7

Hey there, I just changed the version of php on my blog server to 7. I have been playing with PHP 7 on my local development server for a week now and I could not resist not trying it out on something live. The performance is good. It’s fast but it is not noticeable in all environments. It breaks many things, I don’t think it’s a good idea to deploy it on your production server if you are using some old script there.

Hopefully everything went fine on me. WordPress and plugins that I am using had no conflict, no depreciated function and extension yet.

I had my eyes on the errors_log file for around 20 min while exploring the pages. it seems to be pretty fast.

Well this is my first post running PHP7. lets hope that it plays well with my click on the publish button.

Insert MySQL table data into Elasticsearch using PHP


I just released a tool, mySQLtoes which selects mysql data from the specified table and insert it into Elasticsearch indexes. I know the most common way to insert data from mysql to elasticsearch is to use JDBC driver of Elasticsearch, but due to the environment that I was developing on I needed to do some data manipulation before inserting the data to Elasticsearch, so I decided to write a reusable piece to get this done.

You can download my tool from my github page. more details about it are available here.

Hope it helps some people out there, at the moment I do not do any mapping before inserting the data so either you need to use dynamic mappings or remap your data again after insertion to elasticsearch.

I’ll probably develop it more and add mapping functionalities if I can manage to find some free time.
