a must read for all architects : http://ping.fm/EiWT1 ;)


interesting read : ... they found that presenting the concrete architecture gives visibility of unexpected architectural interactions, and that the logical view (UML package diagram and class diagram) was the most useful in understanding the system


too tired today. Overslept and now stuck in traffic.

a sudden flash of thought - approach life with a reckless abandon! As in cooking!


It dawned upon me that the first application i launch every day is FF! subconsciously, addicted to the web!

finally done with moving the heavy weights up the apt. Now to get them within the wardrobes. It'll be a close call.


shifting heavy godrej bearaus to the new apt. Bummer the power is gone! Waiting for the elixir of modern life to be back.


solved a tricky problem for a colleague which had been persisting for a long time. stupid IE proxy issue!


checking up ping.fm... finally, got a beta code! yippie!

NTFS Partition in Fedora Core Friday, July 18, 2008 |

Fedora Core (FC) distribution of Linux doesn't support NTFS drives by default. Last week i was in a desperate condition to mount NTFS drives in to FC.

To solve this problem i installed ntfs-3g tool with yum. Then mounted the drive by adding the command in to /etc/fstab.

If you don't want to add anything into /etc/fstab then it can be done manually by executing

mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 path_to_folder_where_to_mount -o force

this command should be executed as root.

ntfs-3g is available in rpm format also.

PS: Installation of ntfs-3g would connect to internet. at console proxy settings won't work. to handle this problem you have to export proxy settings with proper value and port.
ex. export http_proxy 'xxx.xx.xx.xx:xxxx'

Msdn Reader Up & Running finally! Wednesday, July 16, 2008 |

Side effects!

Call it blind luck - I had changed the IE proxy settings from VS to enable the PInvoke.net plugin to work properly from within VS.

And as a welcome, side effect - the MSDN Reader started working as well. All the while, i've been breaking my heads to get the MSDN reader work thru the proxy settings!

So, MSDN Reader *does* take its proxy settings from the IE settings. good!

Proxy for windows cli / command line Friday, July 11, 2008 |

This is a topic for which i have been breaking my heads for long, without a proper solution.
Never thought its such a simple thing! :)

To enable the proxy for commandline cli tools, all we need to do is to set the HTTP_PROXY
variable with the proxy server ip & port!

Oh yeah! and don't forget to export it!


Learnings by the hard way! Thursday, July 10, 2008 |
