Another venture from Kerala !

Hey ! Hindusthan keliye ye he ek aur company : angelsvista .

Don’t mistook me in alliance with them having postponed Chipmonk‘s launching shifted indefenitely from 1st April 2008 ,the very day they have launched their company . I didn’t even know them . I know that the executive team of Linoy ,Balu ,Nikhil and Eldhose come from Kerala . This is not an ad, but a post just to applaud them .
Their investment is 2 lakhs . But what they do is Google’s initial job – content delivery service .

Angelsvista has implemented technologies such as Bandwidth Throttling and FLV Seek that are specifically designed to attract their customers. Cudos for their selection of such an idea in India where we lack something like a “Global platform

LAMPify OR pythonify

“What is new for the IT solutions in Kerala is what is old for an Engineering student ..”
The words belong to me myself .
It is not a person or company which made me think so . But a general tendency I saw in my locality and with the people of various IT solutions I interact .

What we (as an ‘arbit’ element from Gov engg college ,Thrissur) think when we get an assignment is how to accomplish it in the most easiest way ..Perhaps in a thought to simplify ,I think , most of these people think of Visual BASIC or a few line code in python where there is a need for just a page in LAMP .

I can site you ever so many examples :

Just search in Google How to ‘merge HTML’ files .You can find a lot of unregistered versions for sail for this much dollars and so ..Whats the f’unda’ they mean through these softwares . I simply can’t understand since these softwares only does a go of few lines in python .
Between ,since my friends asked the code ,here it is :

import sys
if sys.argv.__len__()==1:
print “Usage python “,argv[0],” <file-name> <from> <to>”


for i in range(int(sys.argv[2]),int(sys.argv[3])):
for j in f.readlines():

Between , It will take a little bit more time to code the same in php .You too will have to agree .

There ever so many similar examples which are projects going on now at many institutions in my locality . I don’t want to site their names.

As far I am concerned what I want to select between is just whether to pythonify or to LAMPify.

If I want to do something related to databases I usually select LAMPifying ( I mean ‘to code in LAMP – Linux Apache MySQL PHP ‘ ) or if it is less related to forms and all , but surely a job to be done fast I select python . I know it will be your tool to do things fast if you are a programmer .

I will have to praise python more after getting in more touch to perl ..My experiments with won’t stop there.
Fascination of pythonifying everything made my friends come to me for any question regarding a tedious job ‘ like copying pasting a lot of things ‘ . Python beautifully simplifies everything .. Cudos python ..And Guido van Rossum

This is the time when I doubt myself whether am a machine ..Today was a really thick-packed day for me ..Got my blog works,site works and much more in the morning .. Got naveen from noon to do a USB interfacing ..Later got sharath to do a billing system ..(Thank God ! It is the first job completely finished today )..Then I got noufy ,did a quiz database for him (the second one) .. Now I am doing the hardware for USB interfacing .. Usually May ends are the most thick schedules for me ..But this may lacks a tour and that too due to my projects ..Oh ! GOD .. Am I a machine ..?
Let my frustrations be in my blog only ..
Anyway I am gonna start a page for my frustrations to be expressed so that I could feel relaxed to obtain it later for reference .. Let the link be in my Chipmonks blog with the name TechLife..

A line follower ..

I happened to see some videos in youtube about MOBO 2007 contest conducted by organisation of robots for line following bots..

Amazing .. But what I noticed was very few of them followed a line correctly …But some where making it even for multilines and curves ..

Between I would like to announce here that some our classmates(sajitha and team) have successfully completed a line following robot . It is working for all angles above 90 degree and even curves ..I was thinking of my old friend’s words . “They(foreigners) have money and hard work but no brain power .. We(Indians) have only brain power . What to do ? Flee out from India” -David Sir . (He is a traveller and talker .. He might not be remembering me . He is now just a travel agency owner losing all his buses )

Whenever we start a robot we’ll be stuck at the body arrangement .The alignment of the wheels is an imporatant thing which we won’t notice . Last time when we made one the same problem made us look for a ready-made body .Anyway its awesome to have a slave for us .Better ,when it is a robot .

Between I can’t find any atmega 8 burning circuits in internet eventhough we can do it using the same configurationss as atmega 16 . For my own better access I am uploading one here ..

Caught you Ahsan …

Viruses are bad (How to catch Ahsan’s virus- in my tech blog )

Finally I was compelled to take such a conclusion .Viruses are bad .
An Ahsan’s virus got into my system ..
This is really a funny one .. It acts every 5 seconds .. Closes all applications you try to run ..Renames all stuffs as Ahsan’s ..

I used to try viruses to know how to catch them ..This time It caught me .. I was myself installing it accidently along with MobiMB3.6.6 .. Dont download it ..It is a virus .

I have got a comment for this in techspec from somebody called ahsan manan … I din mean to hurt anyone .. I just posted a remedy for this at techspec

You can hear about my college here ..

Anil and the chipmonks !!

 ( See the page Anil and the chipmonks : )

 It was like following my dream that we were flying this month through the deserts
of hardwork..together ..and scattered ..Now we are half way to our destination .
Many have appreciated us .Kudos for them . Many have laughed at us . Kudos for them too ..

We agree we are just chipmunks . But it is the same chipmunk who got lines drawn on it’s body
from Lord Rama .It is usually difficult to assimilate when you hear from a college guy about his company ,shares and staffs
and all such big deals ..But it is true we too own a company ( ..

But this company owners where running here an there in this vaccation to do their miniprojects ..
Between, that was the mere reason for me having this post this much late …
There were ever so many happenings in my life in this interval. Anyway, Now I know the reason why do we need to blog regularly .
Otherwise we will loose what we call ‘the magical touch’ just like any other hobby .Now I have to write those things in the coming posts .

Between I wrote the page Anil and the chipmonks
And made our site working getting a new DNS for us
