With the move of Subversion to its new home ie., Apache Software Foundation (ASF) all the "Full Committers" of Subversion project is getting migrated to the ASF infrastructure. As a part of it I got my credentials to the ASF infra today, thus becoming an official "Apache Committer". Thanks to CollabNet and Subversion who gave me this opportunity :) You can mail me at stylesen [at no spam] apache [dot] org Read the official announcement about the move here - http://www.collab.net/news/press/2009/svn-asf.html

Today (29-oct-2009) marked Day 3 of SubConf 2009 which is also the last day of the event. Just like yesterday we had lots of talks planned with 3 parallel sessions at any point of time, but unfortunately there was only one talk in English for the whole day. The Subversion Hackathon went for the whole day where developers got together, discussed and wrote code for the entire day. The talks in day-3's agenda was mostly concerned on Software Configuration Management and general concepts. 09:50 am - 10:35 am "Coding Control: How to bring in agility and avoid fragility through software configuration management" talk by Tony Smithfrom Perforce Software. This talk mainly focussed on SCM and Agile development.

Yesterday ie., 12 Spetember 2009 from 11:30 to 13:30 HRS IST, I conducted "Python Programming Workshop" in SRM University as a part of "Aaruush'09" . I explained basics of python programming language and the advantages of using python over other languages, with some code demo.

We had audience from various colleges in and around Chennai. The session was interactive and I enjoyed a lot with the questions from the audience.

Thanks to Srinivasan T and Ravi Jaya who gave me an opportunity to conduct this workshop. My sincere thanks to Manipal lug where I got some content for my presentation.

Time line of HDD space I ve used: * Back in college when I got my first computer which is a HCL easy bee, it had 40 GB of HDD space. * When I joined my first job I got an official laptop with 60 GB of space. * I bought a 120 GB of external HDD when I left my first job. * Then I got my personal laptop which is a HP dv2601, it has 160 GB of HDD space. * In my current job (second) I have an official laptop with 30 GB of HDD space. * Current desktop in home has 1.25 TB of HDD space. Recently I got a new desktop (dejas.stylesen.org) which currently has 1.25 TB of space. It has 6 slots for plugging in SATA disks, I ve used only 3 right now with a 250, 500, 500 GB disks. But I cant expand it anymore since the space for mounting HDD in the cabinet is exhausted. Anyway this is more than enough for me.

Its been more than 3 years since I got my own domain name to host my website ie., www.stylesen.org Since I started my website it was hosted by one of my ex-colleague in his shared server (CentOS?). Today I moved www.stylesen.org to a new server (Debian Lenny) which has lots of space and unlimited bandwidth for me. Lets see how it goes! should closely watch the differences on this move.

Recently I moved stylesen.org to a different server and had the problem of logging in which resulted in a "access denied" error. After searching in drupal forums I came to know about this - http://drupal.org/node/93945

Today I opened my Firefox 3.5 browser and saw an option which allows me to restore sessions selectively in case if there is any problems which is great! Kudos to firefox developers.
