Installing MySQL on Mac OS

Follow the following steps to install and configure MySQL on Mac OS
Set the permissions
sudo chgrp -R mysql /usr/local/mysql 

Starting mysql is accomplished with:

sudo /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqld_safe --user=mysql &

Now you can run through some of the basic tests — but first, go ahead and secure the database by adding a password for the database “root” user, as follows:

/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqladmin -u root password sniggle
/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql -u root

Kharbanda to head Apple in India

BANGALORE: The man who was once handpicked by Michael Dell to breathe life into Dell's BPO operations in India is now the Apple of Steve Jobs' eye.

A day after this newspaper carried a detailed report on Apple Computer's big bang entry into India, it is learnt that Mohan S Kharbanda has been roped in to lead its Indian operations.

Kharbanda was earlier heading Dell's BPO operations in India as the managing director of Dell International Services, a job which he quit in April 2004.

Kharbanda is seen to have been responsible for Dell bringing more work to India, more than the run-of-the-mill tech support operations.

"He convinced Dell bosses that the company could benefit from qualified talent pool in India. So, Dell started doing applications development as well as product development here,"sources said.

But he did once get into a spot when Dell decided to move some services back to US.
