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: Maximum call stack size exceeded
 
As usual my first thought was to Google out what I was facing and googling it out led me to the following to links.
 
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 also, and when I checked my object, I found that the problem is related to the big DOM Object that I included in the object, and when I removed that, the object saved in MongoDB correctly.

My piece of buggy code:

collection.insert({
  seq: nextSeq,
  profileIdentity: profileIdentity,
  sectionData: secData, //the buggy part 
  findDateTime: new Date()
});
 The problem occurred in `secData` array. In the second item of that array I had a big DOM Object and after removing that object from array (and of course, doing that job in a different way), problem solved.

HackRice 7.5: How "uFilter" was born

I have a thing for Hackathon. I am a procrastinator. A lazy and procrastinator graduate student, not a nice combination to have. But still when I see hundreds of sharp minds in a room scrabbling over idea, hungry to build and prototype their idea. Bring it to life, it finally pushes me to activity, makes me productive.  That is why I love Hackathon, that is why I love HackRice, our resident Hackathon of Rice University.

TL;DR: if you just want to try the extension, chrome version is here and Firefox version is here.
I have been participating at HackRice since 2014, when I think for the first time it was open for non-rice students, and have been participating ever since. What a roller coaster ride it has been, but that is a story for another day. HackRice 7.5 being the last one I will be able to attend at Rice, it was somewhat special and emotional for me.
HackRice 7.5 was a tad different form the other iterations. For starters it was the first time it was being held in Spring semester…

If you have been following news or were online for past couple of hours you might have noticed this news making a tweet-storm and appearing all over your timeline regarding how India's Ministry of Defense website got hacked (allegedly by 'Chinese' origin).

Needless to say, every possible step required to prevent any such eventuality in the future will be taken. @DefenceMinIndia@PIB_India@PIBHindi — Nirmala Sitharaman (@nsitharaman) April 6, 2018
It all seemed for the fact that the homepage of the websites showed this image with a Chinese character
And though most of india's government portals and websites aren'…

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…
