zip file corrupted when downloading file using Internet Explorer from apache server

Recently a client compliant that download a zip files from my website and got file corrupted error.  After did some testing, I found that the problem happened on in Internet Explorer only, and the file downloaded is several bytes shorter than the one on the server.  And the zip file on the server is not corrupted.

Then I remembered that I did some changes on the apache server setting recently. and I suspected that it caused by the mod_deflate module of the apache. If I disable this module, the zip file can be download correctly without corruption.

eeepc 900 part2

For the eeepc 900, the most questionable components of its hardware is the battery with smaller capacity (we expected it should be 5800mAh, but finally it is 4400mAh, 25% smaller) and the 16G (8G in Windows version) SSD that using MLC clips. So I am going to test the usage time and the SSD speed of the laptop. Windows XP is installed into the eeepc 900.

Usage time test, case 1:

eeepc 900 part 1

The package includes:

  1. eeepc
  2. Battery
  3. Charger
  4. Soft case
  5. Manual, cdrom...


The battery's capacity is 4400mAh only. In previous review from PCM magazine in Hong Kong, it showed 5800mAh. But finally in production version, it is 4400mAh only, that is 25% less. Since eeepc got faster CPU, larger SSD and larger display. It should spend more energy. Will this smaller battery, can eeepc 900 give the same usage time as eeepc 701? I will test it later on.

Fix grub

When grub is overwritten by other OS installation, you can resintall it by:

  1. boot ubuntu liveCD
  2. sudo fdisk /dev/sda (assuming your harddisk is /dev/sda)
  3. type p and see the partition number of your linux partition (my case is sda6)
  4. mount partition sudo mount /dev/sda6 /boot (mount Linux partition to /boot)
  5. grub-install --root-directory=/boot /dev/sda (reinstall grub)

All done, and can reboot now.
