Happy Ugadi - TLCA report.

తెలుగు ప్రజానీకానికి నా హ్రుదయపూర్వక సర్వధారి నామ సంవత్సర శుభాకాంక్షలు
I wish you all a Happy Ugadi. I could not blog this weeked, for I was catching up with my life. Its been a while I have had a celebrated weekend. I went to Jalsa on saturday. So, technically, the euphoria carried on to sunday. And Sunday was even bigger for me. I was at TLCA Ugadi Celebrations and in the Jalsa mood, when DSP threw a challenge to come on the stage, I dint think even for a second. Its was great - to stand among DSP, Tarun and Karthik and my favorites Charmi and Sunita. I was man enough to speak to Charmi, but I was shy(or nervous?) to talk to Sunita. Sunita is a very sweet lady as much as her voice. I still despise myself for not being able to talk to her. All I said to her (Hello Andi) was in my mind the whole night.

The highlights of the night were Karthik's "Oka maaru" song and Sunita's Acoustic version of "Andanga lena..". But what stole the show, was DSPs jaljaljaljal Jalsa!!

DSP, if you are reading, thank you for the evening

Appcache manifest file issues/caveats

Application cache (appcache) is a powerful feature in HTML5. However, it does come with baggage. Many (see links below) advocated ferociously against it due to tricky issues it comes with. For someone who is just testing waters, these issues may throw them off grid. Knowing them before hand helps reduce some unpredictable effects.

Being a Vegetarian

I am a Proud Vegetarian. I don't eat Meat or Eggs. People say its hard here in US to be one. I beg to differ. The mere fact that I am hail and healthy these 4 years is a definitive proof. Apart from being bullied and trash talked by The Meat-Eaters, There is really nothing that makes this choice of mine any more than a debatable issue at a lunch or dinner. Other things aside, I am writing this blog having watched a PETA Video. Before you click on the play button, I ask you - If you are a vegetarian : Dont watch it. If you are not : Dare to watch it till the end. If you think going veg is just a fashion, think again . Even if you just want to do it for Fashion . Do it. Go Vegetarian. And Feel better asking the waiter for a Vegetarian Entrée in your next lunch.

classpath*: making your Modular Spring Resources

Spring gives multiple options to load XML resources for building contexts. the reference documentation does explain this feature quite well. However, I am taking my shot at explaining the different practical scenarios ( by order of growing modularisation) For Example, A simplest Spring based web Context Loader can be configured with resources like this <context-param> <param-name>contextConfigLocation</param-name> <param-value>applicationContext.xml</param-value> </context-param> <listener> <listener-class>org.springframework.web.context.ContextLoaderListener</listener-class> </listener> You just need to put applicationContext.xml in WEB-INF/ folder of your webapp. However, Typically an application is n-tiered. You can also have multiple files setup and in relative paths. like <param-value> context-files/applicationContext.xml context-files/dao.xml context-files/service.xml </param-value>
