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

Add jquery in Chrome console

Many a time, a page you are debugging doesnot have jquery. This simple js will add(or prompt you to overwrite) jquery to any page from chrome console.

javascript:if(!window.jQuery||confirm('Overwrite\x20current\x20version?\x20v'+jQuery.fn.jquery))(function(d,s){s=d.createElement('script');s.src='https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.8/jquery.js';(d.head||d.documentElement).appendChild(s)})(document);

Javascript: Convert Strings to Binary (and representing in a nerdy way!)

I follow those GoogleDevelopers Videos. Sometime back, in one of the presentations on GoogleIO, there was this interesting string of dots at the bottom of each page of the presentation. They looked like random big and small dots. A similar bunch of dots were also on the T-shirt of a presenter was wearing in another presentation. While it seemed something in the pattern, I could not find what it was. Finally, another presenter cleared the matter that those dots are just binary representation of "GOOGLEIO" (So much for advertizing Google IO, Impressive!).

So I wanna do it. Takes me back to days of those DSP classes at school. Nerdy me had to churn some old brain cells. I remember those first programming language classes in Pascal and C when you were asked to do fibonacci series and converting a binary string to ascii codes. That *experience* came handy here: Check it out!

For those who came to copy the javascript code to convert string to binary, Here it is…
