25 Feb 2005

The first place in Linux Programming Contest(LPC) was bagged by our team. Sri Ranjani and Myself did a small software for LPC, which is a programming contest conducted by our CSE association. It is an interface for the wget tool in GNU/Linux. At first when we cleared prilms, we thought that we were to implement wget ( it involves a lot of stuff, ie. implementing http, ftp and all that crap), but one day when we had a discussion my senior Balamurugan made it clear that our job is to just make use of the existing tool in GNU/Linux and provide an interface for that. Then things were made easy. Ranjani and myself worked for one day fully dedicated, for that and we almost finished it on that day. Then we were waiting for the results for a long time. At last we got the first place. There were ten teams participating in this contest.

I took a seminar on Microkernel Development Basics in the GLUGOT,Glug-Madurai meeting. I was talking about Paging, booting process, GDT, etc. There were many guyz from KLN, from our college and one guy was from NITT, also there was a member of glug-madurai who is working in southern railways. I prepared a presentation on the topic (using OpenOffice). Had a nice time giving a talk. Arpit is one of the guy from ECE who attended this meeting, he was the first on to shoot questions to me. He asked about enabling the A-20 pin. I explained him, and Joe Steeve gave an insight about this address pin. And there were many questions on GDT, segmentation and Multiboot kernel.

Virtusa is a WonderLand.I would like to narrate the moments which I cherished during my stay at Virtusa. My Association with Virtusa started somewhere in the middle of August, when we had Fstival in our college. Dr.Shalini told us our sponsors for Fstival are Virtusa and the chief guest is coming from this company. At that time I had no idea of what is Virtusa. Then we recevied two posters from Virtusa, quoting some PIRL values. I felt very great about the company on seeing those posters, it was so professional. One important thing to note here is Virtusans also had sent a rope for tieing these posters; this shows how consious these corporate people are even with very minute things.

Hey folks !!! am very happy that our team got the second place in Project Management this time. It was conduted as a part of our department association activities. Last time we worked as a team of four and got the second place, in which the topic was "Prevention of Road Accidents". Last time the team members were Saravanan, Shyam Prasad, Rebecca Lavanya and myself.

This time it was really cool.The topic was "Underground Airport" for prelims and "Collision Detection" in the finals. At first Shyam didnt want to get into it, since the penguins ie the girls of tt joined as a separate team and contested. But we convinced Shyam to get through and we managed to get second place. The first place went ot the girls of tt. In our team we were five members and each one of were assigned a separate module. We named our pm as SCACS (Surveillance and Collision Avoidance Control Systems).

Today i attended the GLUGOT (GNU/Linux User Groups of TCE) meeting. My seniors took a very good seminar on PThreads. Balamurugan my senior gave an introduction on Pthreads and explained abt all the functions to create threads and all the fundas. Arun Ponnaih gave a talk on other functions in handling a thread. This gave me an oppotunity to know more abt Thread Handling. My junior Sriram was shooting up questions during the session and the two speakers along with joe were explaining the concepts to him.
After the session got over Sap thought me to program in gtk+ and glade. I had some doubts in glade i clarified those things with him. Then we all went to our hostel mess to have our lunch.
