The time has come to shift, to choose better options. I am shifting my blog from wordpress.com to my personal domain,
The new domain gives me immense opportunities to try out various themes, tweak wordpress and make changes so that the blog reflects my character.
For the time being, I will post new articles in both sites.
Also visit my Personal Website at http://www.karthiksankar.com which will be ready soon…
So see how long I can last
You can pretend that I don’t exist for you
And I can laugh about it now
But I hated every minute
I was waiting for your email
And each day that you forgot to call
Just made me feel so low
It was a fantastic day at Bangalore. The Grand Finale of UNISYS Cloud 20/20 Technical Paper Presentation Contest was held at ITC Hotel yesterday. I was one of the finalists and I presented my paper on cloud computing to an audience of 400, which comprised of eminent personalities and stalwarts from the industry. I won the Third Place and was awarded a Nokia N97 mobile phone !!
I was not new to Cloud Computing since I had already conducted workshop on that topic in college. I got into action and learnt more about the topic and the challenges faced by this new computing paradigm. I decided to work on application development on the cloud. I came up with a topic: “Realizing Parallelism and Transparency in Applications Through Idempotence”. Wrote an abstract, submitted it, and waited for the results.
A thought-provoking short story narrated by my professor in class:
An engineer and a mathematician were asked a question:
“Given a stove, lighter, water and an empty vessel, how would you make hot water?”
Both, the engineer and the mathematician gave the same answer:
- Fill the vessel with water
- Light the stove
- Place the vessel on the stove and allow it to heat.
Now the question was slightly twisted:
“The stove is already lighted and the vessel already contains water. Now, how would you make hot water?“
For most users of NS2, it would be easier if they can use a popular IDE to work with the files.
Here are the step by step instructions I followed to set up NS-2.34 with Eclipse 3.5 in Ubuntu Linux.
In older versions of Eclipse, the settings might be slightly different.
I have compiled the following steps after running into various problems and errors with the setup, and solving them all. So I hope the setup will be smooth for you.
Setting up Eclipse
Adding NS-2 as a Project in Eclipse
Setting Debug Configuration
Having read quite a few reviews and after watching the movie twice, I feel the movie is a very good one, but a little below perfection. I am mentioning the points which I noticed in this movie, and not the ones I noticed in the original movie, ‘A Wednesday’.
When a movie of such importance is made, with great actors and a greater story, perfection is expected. The better the quality of the movie is, the more the trivial mistakes matter…
It was Software Freedom Day Celebrations at NIT Trichy. And how better could the day have been!! For the first time, Sun Club of NIT Trichy and GLUG-T, The Linux User Group joined hands to conduct the event. We had organized a workshop on cloud computing and Linux/Opensolaris Install Festival.
