Nightout@CVIT3

I am a free bird !!! Yo-hooo …. !!! And what better way to celebrate it other than a night-out @ CVIT-LAB 3. This Lab is awesome .. you must have heard about it from skp , shiben and all other CVITians … lemme boast a lil bit more about CVIT :) . To start off we have 4 huge monitors and one humungous HD – TV ( 42″ ) . And talking about hardware we have the best computing systems in CVIT . I worked on my honours-1 project on Camarack , this baby is has the following config :-

Processor: Conroe E6400 Intel Core Duo, 2.13 Ghz

Motherboard: Asus P5LD2-VM SE

Graphics Card: Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTX

Disk Space: 320GB Sata

Chipset: NFORCE 4 Ultra (Sound and ethernet)

Isnt that enuf ???

PS3: Thanks a lot Shiben !!! You rock !

PowerShell

Microsoft has come up with a new command prompt interface , Powershell to give developers and h0x3rs some hope in windows for automating day to day work . This was created by “Microsoft’s Linux Group” .. yeah such a group exists .. google it :) .

The language is not as powerful as bash but hey something is better than nothing .. The biggest catch … u can use both “/” and “\” for changing directories … it used to be a pain in the a** for Linux users like me to use “\” after a using Linux for the whole day .

Looking at the examples given at the microsoft’s website i think this will replace my basic “cmd” …

Read this book its funny :- Unix-Haters Hand Book or from a local ftp ( for IIIT’ians)

Ps: This news is one year old :P

Ps2: I am not a *nix-Hater .. but on theĀ  other hand an ardent *nix-Worshipper :D

PS3: I am not a Windows-hater either .. i am just a Use-Windows-Only-For-Games kind of guy :)

PS4: I bet the best comment will be from general Bordeaux but he isnt here … :(

PS5: tata ciao !! Au revoir !!
