Hosting a site and a clueless souls

My last night(I wrote this post on 25th) was spent researching,buying and configuring my newly bought shared web space. As it happens I used to have my site along with other college fest sites I designed (or actually tried to design you might say) on a shared hosting server bought from webguru. But over the years I became very frustrated with their service. I still remember the last time at the time of our techfest,countless times I had to call them to explain that their server wasn’t updating the last modification date and it was causing a real pain as the users were getting a cached copy of the site.

And later i discovered that the site was frequently down for their server problems. So I decided it was time to move on. So after a lot of google search I zeroed on hostmonster. Alas I didn’t have any coupon codes so it costed me almost 71, but after the registration it was a pleasant experiences. Their cpanel was impressive, and they were supporting unlimited domain hosting too.

That was good for me. So far so good. I thought about testing their server speed a little so I uploaded my little leecher there and started a server to server leech to see the speed.And bingo!! The transfer speed was a whooping 8000kbps. though after a little time it went to an average 3000kbps but that too was more than what I’ll ever need :)

Going to configure the server tonight :D

Hope this has more ram than my previous one :(

It had only 64mb I need atleast 128mb.

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.
PreludeI 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 to b…

Bringing the Focus back : Firefox Focus (Builds) for Android

Firefox Focus – A Free, Fast Private Browser for....android! On 17th November 2016 Mozilla announced Firefox Focus. A free fast and easy to use private browser for iOS. Firefox Focus was filled with goodies. From inbuilt tracker blocking, content blockers to making privacy the first class citizen. It was all of that. Wrapped in a nice package, but only for Apple Ecosystem. The argument for having focus was to make privacy dead simple and default experience for most people out there. An excellent read is this article "Privacy made simple with Firefox Focus".
And while this was all fine, a lot of us were severely disappointed that we don't have an android version. That all changes now.
Mozilla has released a port of the Firefox Focus source code and I decided to build a port from it. And this is how it looks in my One Plus One.
If you notice it looks almost similar to its iOS counterpart. Focus blocks tracking cookies by default in its system. But there are small design c…

LinuxCon China 2017: Trip Report

Linux Foundation held a combination of three events in China as part of their foray into Asia early this year. It was a big move for them since this was supposed to be the first time Linux Foundation would hold an event in Asia. I was invited to present a talk on Hardening IoT endpoints. The event was held in Beijing, and since I have never been to Beijing before I was pretty excited for the talk. However, it turned out the journey is pretty long and expensive. Much more than a student like me can hope to bear. Normally I represent Mozilla in such situations, but the topic of the talk was too much into security and not aligned much with the goals of Mozilla at that moment. Fortunately, Linux Foundation gave me a Scholarship to come and speak at LinuxCon China which enabled me to attend LinuxCon and the awesome team at Mozilla TechSpeakers including Michael Ellis and Havi helped me get ready for the talk.

The event was held at China National Convention Center. It's a beautiful and …
