How to Create Site Collection with a separate content database?

Hi All,

one of the "Stsadm operations" is creating site collection with a separate content database. it’s very direct command and will help you to maintain your sites & its db.
createsiteinnewdb: will Create a site at the specified Uniform Resource Locator (URL) and create a new content database using the user name and password you specify. If you do not specify a template to use, the owner can choose a template when he or she first browses to the site.
Example:
stsadm -o createsiteinnewdb -url http://siteurl/sites/site1 -owneremail owner@sharepoint.com -ownerlogin spuser1  -sitetemplate STS#0 -title “site 1” description "site 1 desscription" -databaseserver "DBServer" -databasename “DB_Site1”

<br/>The $35 credit card-sized Raspberry Pi computer sold out within hours of its debut Wednesday.

(CNN) — The debut of the tiny $35 Raspberry Pi computer crashed its distributors’ websites on the way to selling out within hours of launch.

Looking like little more than a credit card-sized chip of circuit board, the powerful, fully-programmable PC can plug into any TV and can power 3D graphics and Blu-ray video playback.

Its British-based designers at the Raspberry Pi Foundation hope the computer, which has been in the works for six years, will spark new interest in programming among children.

"The primary goal was to build a low cost computer that every child could own, and one where programming was the natural thing to do with it," said co-founder Robert Mullins.

Windows 8 Consumer Preview: The Developer Tools

vs11_beta

Microsoft included a pre-release version of Visual Studio 11 in the Windows 8 Developer Preview, of course, giving developers the tools they needed to get started on Metro-style app development. But with the Consumer Preview, these tools are available as a separate Beta download.

Last week, Microsoft provided a sneak peek of Visual Studio 11, though it didn’t speak much about Windows 8 developer issues specifically. I can tell you, however, that the Windows 8 platform–the Metro-based environment–was finalized about two months ago, so the versions of the APIs and platform we see now with the Consumer Preview is pretty close to complete. Too, the Visual Studio 11 Beta is close to final from a user experience standpoint.

So before we discuss anything else, you’ll want to get that download (and installation) going.

Click HERE to download the Visual Studio 11 Beta

(Note that the Beta will include separate downloads of Visual Studio 11 Ultimate, Premium, Professional, Test Professional, Team Foundation Server, Express for Windows 8, Express for Web, and Team Foundation Server Express. Visual C++, Visual C#, and Visual Basic Express editions are not available for this release.)………
