    Apparently the last time I wrote something here was on Jan’26th Mar’ 23rd, 2009 -almost 3 years ago. Obviously a lot’s happened and much has changed in life -or may be nothing’s changed. I recall lines from a Gulzar saab’s poem: Pal bhar mein sab kuchh badal gaya, Aur kuchh bhi nahi badla. Jo...

    [OT] The Rant of a “Republic” Indian Hacker

    by  • January 26, 2009 • bug, hack, hackers, india, irony, life, off-topic, politics, rant • 0 Comments

    For me, the very foundations of Hacker-dom is based on three very fundamental steps: 1. Grasp the fundamentals 2. Question everything 3. Question everything, without being a fanatic As ironical (or rather illuminating, depending on the way you see) it may sound; as I start my very first step to understand the fundamentals of...

    Randy Pausch, fondly known as the Last Lecture Guy, is no more. If you have not heard of him, I suggest you watch his “last lecture”. A summary of the lecture and Randy Pausch’s life can be read here. p.s.: @Johnny: Thanks for updating me. @Slashdot-ters: Thanks for not making stupid and mean remarks...

    I have a special likeness for T-Shirt with quotes. More Geeky the quote, more geekier… I mean better. I got this T-Shirt made for myself a couple of days ago. I case you didn’t get, it’s a mockery of the crippled iPhone. Oh by the way, this is my first post on the new...

    Demo 1. Phizy-Phizy-Phizy I have always loved making this phizy-phizy-phizy sound purposelessly, which I once heard in a Rob Schneider movie (which, if I remember correctly, was a pathetic movie). Anyhoo! I, now, have a set of very strong reasons to move around repeating the same lines. First, we received a request to be...

Although it takes a while for the “player” to load completely, yet I am pretty okay with it (for now). Moreover,...

    Update: Kishor reports a flaw in the implementation of “private” videos feature on Orkut. Although I am at office and I haven’t checked it yet myself, I believe I can trust him, based on his posts at Slackers. Nice one Kishor. 🙂 1. YAWN Orkut (Google’s MySpace and Facebook for...

    Update: I somehow managed to make a blunder. A part of slide no. 12 was taken from David Kierznowski’s (of GNUCitizen and Blogsecurity group) presentation for OWASP Belgium Conf. I missed out on mentioning David’s name in the credits. Apologies David. I’ve updated and re-uploaded it. Yesterday, I presented my first Webinar (Seminar on...
