Resize partition in Vista

It is quite a while I have not posted about Linux. The reason is I have bought in new notebook three months ago with Vista and did not have a program to resize the partition…

Do I need a program?
NO, I do not !!!

Vista has disk management that can resize my online partition.

Run: compmgmt.msc /s
Or go to control panel.

And shrink/extend your volumes!

Either you use the difference between timestamp ‘1970-01-01 00:00:00 +00:00’ and current_timestamp, or you can use java, which is more portable.


create function epoch return number as language java name
'java.lang.System.currentTimeMillis() return int';
select epoch from dual;

My book is available on

One year ago I started writing a book on SQL. Writing a book is an amazing amount of work and I am glad I got helped from my five reviewers Chen, Andrew, Tom, Marco and Lutz.

It will ship in December 2008.
