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.
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

Many a times I have typed my own name, ‘Karthik Sankar’ in the Google search bar to find where my blog or website is listed. Sometimes it features as the fourth best, but sometimes it appears only in the second or third page. I have always felt happy when my page is listed with a better rank. But when it moves down the ranking, I have always thought of doing something to improve, probably add my name some fifty odd times in the <META> tag ??? But oops, Google does not use META for indexing !!!
Now Google has introduced searchWiki. It gives me an option to rank the pages, promote them to the top, add pages that are relevant to the search term, delete pages from the search results and so on. Nice idea !!! Now I can promote my website to the top…
