Catching the outsourcing train a little late… here's the description of my (possibly) new part time job:
Use an XML parser to convert text to XML and then proof read the stuff to check until the validator says it is 100% okay. period.
I am sure I can handle that easily!! :) wish me luck.
Yesterday/Today (18 June) was Anastasia's 103rd Birth Anniversary. God bless her soul.
Yay! Jon got the shipping money.. moh books ah coming to may!!
You're The Fellowship of the Ring!
by J.R.R. Tolkien
Facing great adversity, you have decided that your only choice is to
unite with your friends and neighbors. You have been subject to a ton of squabbling and
ultimately decided that someone humble is your best candidate for a dangerous mission.
You're quite good with languages and convinced that not all who wander are lost. If you
see anyone in black robes on horseback, just run. That's just common sense.
Take the Book Quiz

Why do I over stress myself like this?
It's past 3:30 AM and I'm still online. My back, hands and legs are paining :/ This is bad for me.
Anyway, I love being with my online friends :) and also to work late at night – a lot of the software that I have written was coded overnight.
I am going to sleep now. amit and Niki are here… eve thay are sleeping, getting up and sleepign again – I'm the one who was driving all the way to Loni and back (after a 4 hour sleep yesterday). and with no sleep in the afternoon – it comes to an average 4 hours of sleep per 24 hours.
I can see it staring in my face – “hashu you are going to die sooner than your time” and I don't give a damn about it.
Good night world.
Yesterday I showed int80h my *another* new website design. and he pointed out that I'm wasting my time on designing a hundred pages rather than working on my important projects like the Emotion Engine and Anastasia.
So thanks to int80h, I got working on the projects and got some documentation done. The temporary link is:
I am still going to redesign the website. And there's a lot of restructuring to be done hence that link is temporary.
Kay, must get to work.
Today, “today” a user on SDF challenged me to write a simple brute force function that can generate words of arbitrary length. Of course myself not being a mathematician is still working over the solution (past 1 hour).
I am sure that even though that is the problem with me, I'll get over it soon :) Let's see how soon.
I already have designed a blogging script in Python… see http://data.freeshell.org/projects/sdfblog/ for what I mean. I am planning on building a similar but much more reliable blogging system.
A community blog, that allows various levels of users – users, moderators and administrators. Unlike usual blog software that is personal-centric. Moreover I also wish to incorporate a search feature and a 'show blog by number' feature (which is available in the SDFBlog) in this new blog script. Plus later add facility for comments.
All this will be done using Python, XML and NO EXTRA SOFTWARE. Hope I can pull this off :)
At last… after quite a few days I am bloging again :)
Feels really good.
Just installed FreeBSD 4.9 on my system (was 5.1 previiously) I have downgraded because of some practical reasons:
- I get some of the latest softwares readily ported.
- Much of the bug fixing has been done (for which I'll be getting the patches)
- Much of the docs are for 4.x
That's about it. But enough reasons to switch – at least till 5.1 gets a more mature ports tree.
Oh and before I forget – Mozilla ROX! This blog is coming from Mozilla's extension – Deepest Sender. Go Open Source!
