– my thoughts

Its Long time , I blogged

Now I know I mustn’t have lost my habit of blogging ..This is  This time I am here at the fifth year from the young boy astonished hearing about the word ‘ blog ‘

I remember myself as a 11th grade student going to have a look at a near by cafe hearing everyone could have a page or blog in world wide web to describe her/him ..That day I was using internet for the first time in my life .. Being a typical thrissur guy ,what I know about this ‘www’ is a place where my so called ‘bad friends’ go for surfing nudity ..But what I saw there was different . I saw a box when you type in about anything under the sky ,you can read about it . It is then only I could understand that people were misusing it with so called entertainments like displaying porn or sex .

I haven’t used an operating system until then other than having seen my teachers using win98 and giving us a black screen to type BASIC .I used to do programs like displaying characters in a particular design . There I started my taste for computers . But I wasn’t having much opportunities then .Later on when I got opportunities I was mistook by the ‘bad’ name : ‘Internet cafe’ .. It was my friends who took me to a near by cafe later to show me the best of Internet .I went there to search for making an assignment on english poets . I did it within half an hour and I had the printed copy in my hand . I have never done such a thing before which made me admire the very thing I disregarded – the world wide web .Same day ,I have made a blog of mine too to give its link to all my classmates .. I was happy that I discovered a new thing  😉 Then I was gradually being a technical freak. Later started a new blog to scribble my discoveries while googling and to upload my small inventions/tips : good for nothing , I used to say  ..And finally this blog what you read ..

Since then till now my brain is thinking about the other brains over there in the world , about their creations .How intelligent is man … huh!! Why shouldn’t everyone start blogging – start sharing this keen special inheritance of mankind –

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..

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

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

Porting Neko to kids’ mind

Neko is now reloaded, a devotion to python , from our Pramode sir..An easy path to python .An interactive learning of a powerful language.I gave this to my sister who haven’t even heard about python and gave her an initial startup .After half an hour she was asking me to give her problems to code in python… And I just want to say ‘Thats Neko !!’ ..

See the interactive console above …You can see Neko, the cat , obeying your commands… Commands like right() , left() , sleep() , wakeup() are his present jobs .You can teach him more .. Click here

I love python ; It is the most understandable easily hackable language I have ever seen . You will need it when you want to do something which we expect our computer to do for us , for example merge few HTML files , select all files with a pattern of name, calculate a sort of formula from a big set of data .All these you could do with your computer , but how ..Bitterly vague; proving that even for accomplishing house keeping jobs there is no such options in proprietary operating systems like windows . It is python which helps me to use windows. A Kid starting using a system may be ignorant about capabilities of his/her system since it is cruelly abstracted before him/her by these proprietary OSs ..It is here python proves its power. It is an easily acquainted language .
Here you can download a PyNeko (executable file) to start commanding your Neko .See him obeying you . Start teaching him new things . You will get acquainted with python .There is a python console with which you can do any python code ,you can leave Neko unminded if you go ahead typing python code which you have learned automatically .In fact he , The Neko ,have taught you the language python , after which you can download
and use python for windows .After you learn try to switch to free OSs (linux) where you can use python source code

Let that be for today
Thankyou for reading further
This is anf signing off
