Violence in Hyderabad

 ‘Million March' turns violent in Hyderabad

Why is this happening to us? We used to pride ourselves for hosting ravindranath tagore (never thinking he is not from our state/region). We put *Cotton Dora*'s idol in our land (never considering he is not even from our country). Such were we, that MK Gandhi praised our patriotism and hospitality.

It is a shame some of the most educated are have a positive side to this story. Supporting these acts of immaturity and haste in the name of a Greater cause, is disrespecting the genuine-ty of that demand, belittling the cause. 

There was time when we did things differently. A different leadership, and people who really followed them religiously.

The Video is a reflection of what we achieved, and how we achieved- A path is respected by the world and the humanity.

The students who lost their lives never would have done it, if it were under the same path.  The people DO deserve thier voice to be heard. But they DONOT have a right to act on what ever comes thier mind.

I lived my adoloscent life in Hyderabad.My mother is from Andhra and father is from Rayalaseema. My brother is a Hyderbadi by birth. My best friends are from Warangal, Nalgonda and Ananthapur. I lost my sister in an accident that had the fear of these issues to blame. Today I care less if a new state happens or not.  But these acts of dis-harmony leave no one winning.

Agonies should not direct your vision. Leadership should not provoke. Education should not let you act in haste. A larger cause should NEVER be rooted from violence.

If this was a divorce, these acts are like destroying your house to voice your opinion. What is next? Tell your kids to not play with each other?

Using Equinox CommandProvider to make OSGi console interactive.

After fiddling with the First Bundles that "Hello World"-ed upon Activation, You want to see more interactivity in OSGi. Although Using OSGi for an interactive Command Line Application would be like this one would be, well, a callable over-kill, I am going to start with an example and Expand it in later posts. So, please Welcome CommandProvider. CommandProvider is an EQUINOX specific API for extending the Console. This basic Example illustrates how to get a command from console and do something in java and also gets your feet wet on Service Registry package com.so.examples.commandconsole; import org. eclipse .osgi.framework.console .CommandInterpreter; import org.eclipse.osgi.framework.console.CommandProvider; public class DisplayMessageCommand implements CommandProvider { public void _say(CommandInterpreter ci) { ci.print("You said:" + ci.nextArgument()); } @Override public String getHelp() { return "\tsay - repeats what you say\n"; } }

javascript maxlength for textarea with \r\n breaks in java (esp Firefox)

Textareas allow new lines to enter. These are represented by \n (1) or \r\n (2) characters. But when you save to DB you have a limit to certain length of chars. There is no maxlength attribute in HTML that will stop you from entering data. This is generally acomplished by Javascript. You do a onkeyup hook and stop event or trim after textarea.value.length > maxlength. There are many other solutions out there.. But.. Here is the problem that most of those solutions overlook, How do you deal with the count on \n and \r\n representations. Lets first see how it matters. If the text entered has new lines, the length is calculated differently in Firefox and IE. When you enter a Text like 01234 567890 You expect the textarea.value.length to be 11. (10 chars + new line).On the backend, however, java would recieve it as 12 chars (10 chars + \r\n) (this is irrespective of FF or IE). So you are effectively saving 12 chars to DB. Worse yet, IE seems to figure textarea.value.length as 12 (

How to Make a Local (Offline) Repository in Ubuntu / Debian

If you are in a place where you dont have internet (or have a bad one) You want to download .deb packages and install them offline. Each deb file is packaged as a seperate unit but may contain dependencies (recursively). apt-get automagically solves all the dependencies and installs all that are necessary. Manually install deb files one by one resolving each dependency would be tedious. A better approach is to make your own local repository. Before you actually make a repo, You need *all* deb files. You dont practically have to mirror all of the packages from the internet, but enough to resolve all dependencies. Also, You have to make sure, you are getting debs of the correct architecture of your system (i386 etc) # 1. make a dir accessible (atleast by root) sudo mkdir /var/my-local-repo # 2. copy all the deb files to this directory. # 3. make the directory as a sudo dpkg-scanpackages /var/my-local-repo /dev/null > \ /var/my-local-repo/Packages # 4. add the local repo to sour
