Postgres ERROR: database “dev” is being accessed by other users

If you are having issues dropping a postgres database the issue is more than likely that a user is accessing the database you are attempting to drop. There isn’t technically a way to force drop the postgres database however there are steps you can take to prevent others from accessing the database and if needed kick the users whom are accessing the database.

If you receive an error similar to the below the issue with your attempt to drop the database is the fact that either a user is accessing the database or an application of some sort has an open connection to the database. In the second scenario PostgreSQL considers the application the same as a user. In the code below the name of the example database is dev.

Please note that dropping the database will destroy all data located within the database. I strongly suggest always backing up your data before dropping the database. You can backup the data with pg_dump and regardless of if you think you will need the data or not it is best to keep a copy just in case.

These are the steps to resetting error codes on the iR5570/iR6570 and other ImageRunner printers. This also refers to eCopy, so follow the additional steps if you have the eCopy setup. The most common errors that I get are from power outages, sometimes after an outage the printer will not reboot correctly and will be stuck with an error message.

Fix Skype Out Call Using Fring: Call Terminated

When using Fring to make Skype calls using a iPhone or a iPod Touch you must dial using a plus and a 1. So an example of call area code 123 with number 111-2222 you would need to dial +1231112222 instead of just dialing 1231112222.

To dial the plus all you need to do is hold down 0 for a second and you will see the plus symbol appear instead of the 0.
