Windows 7


Okk.


This was a hype from the begining. But today I tried my hands on my MSDN version of the windows 7.


And surprisingly,its quite pleasant ;)


I'm not running it on a super hi-fi computer,but on a decent laptop.And its running quite fine.


Here is a snapshot of the specs I'm using on this test Rig






And among the other things I find a loadful of useful things till now I've been using in windows XP as either add-on or third party tools. For isntance the powershell,I remember istalling it quite a long time ago. Never thought It would be bundeled with 7 as Vista left it is dust. Here it is in its full glory. Frankly, it was all quite a surprise.





But the real head turner for me was the revamped calculator. Really...what they were thinking?
The new calculator and its modes almost beat my graphical calculator in XP. Really calculator evolved after quite a long time. And this one is for good.


Experienced the Windows media player 12,nothing radically new except the interface of course. The superbar is quite handy. And they have finally removed the sidebar, instaed they have implimented the gadget direct into the desktop. The new aero theme scheme is good. The transperency works flawlessly too.
Let me test it a few more days before I comment.

LibrePlanet 2017: Liberating your open source experience

LibrePlanet is a yearly gathering of free software activists, users, and contributors—and, it's my favorite conference of the year. Here's why.
LibrePlanet is run by the Free Software Foundation, and has steadily evolved from a yearly members' meeting with presentations from staff and board members to a full blown two-day conference with speakers and attendees from all over the world. The event brings people who care about free software together to talk about the future of the movement, address current challenges, and celebrate successes.
Prelude I was invited to give a talk at LibrePlanet 2017 on 25th March at MIT, in Cambridge, Massachusetts representing Mozilla as a Tech Speaker. I reached Boston on 25th early morning. Around 1 AM. The journey itself was awesome till I realized that you don't get Uber or Lyft at Boston Airport.

Not that the apps don't function there. They work! Just no driver will be ready to pick you up from Airport at that time. After trying t…

Maximum Call Stack size exceeded: My mishap with nodejs and MongoDB

Working with nodejs is always an adventure and mix MongoDB with it, and it becomes very interesting for a nodejs enthusiast like me.

While working on a pet project involving Native MongoDb driver and nodejs I encountered a weird problem.

RangeError:MaximumcallstacksizeexceededAs usual my first thought was to Google out what I was facing and googling it out led me to the following to links.RangeError: Maximum call stack size exceededCalling Model.collection.save() RangeError: Maximum call stack size exceeded Also In some posts in MongoDB’s forum I saw that peoples said saving in `process.nextTick` or wrapping the call function in `parseInt` will also fix the problem, but it most certainly didn't work for me.So I started digging in on my own and soon enough found the reason.

If you’re trying to save a document and saving process somehow exited with an RangeError: Maximum call stack size exceeded exception, it’s related to what you want to save in the database. I had this problem a…

All Hands 2016: MozLondon, A recount

I recently had the opportunity to take part in Mozilla All Hands 2016 (a.k.a #MozLondon). Mozilla All hands. All Hands are bi-yearly events of Mozilla where all the paid staff from different teams around the globe meet with each other along with a handful of invited volunteers to disscuss about future projects and get some work done! This year it was in London and just immediately before Brexit (I actually didn't even know about it before I went there). It was a work week, so essentially the event spanned from Monday to Friday. I arrived at LHR on Monday morning, and then there was the awesome Heathrow Express which took me to Paddington, just a 7 mins walk away from Hilton Metropole where I was staying with a bunch of other people. The event started with all of us having an evening orientation familiarizing us with rules and regulations along with Code of Conduct(that turned out to be really important later on...).  Tuesday started with a Planery. Which you can see if you are lo…
