Why do i love eBay !!!!

Posted on Updated on

There are lots of things happening in the world, but we can’t catch and put everything into our head, but we need to get and add something which may make some good impact on us. Like the topic I’m gonna talk there are lot of things available in the internet but how many people facilitated by those features!! That’s the question here . . .   🙂

My second experience on eBay – Not first   😉

My second purchase was mobile phone screen protector. I’m using LG KM900 and searched for the screen protected for a long time but couldn’t find a best match product for my phone, so I googled the product. Fortunately I found a link that redirected me to eBay. I totally amused when I show it!!! Can you believe that the price was just $1 with free shipping, yaaa. another great thing was I couldn’t find any screen protector less than $.75 in the local market that fairly match with my phone screen but eBay offered me not one or two, they offered 3 screen protector that perfectly match with my phone just for $1.  :-0

Before make the transaction there are some constrains that may put us under uncomfortable situation like credit card payment, quality of product, authentic of product and ect. But up to now the transactions I made are great without any fault. 😉

PS: Please note that I’m not making any advertisement for eBay. I got some benefits from eBay and really satisfied with their service also saved significant amount of money. This’s the reason behind this post  😛

New way to get first class

Posted on Updated on

Just for FUN . . .

I’m almost in the end of my training program and on the way to my final year of my degree program. Last week, at our training place we had a hot discussion about our Grade Point Average(GPA) and how can we raise our GPA in order to get first class (need GPA >= 3.7).

Everyone started to calculate their GPA, after a rocked mathematical calculation we found required GPA and the GPA we have to score in the final year to get an over roll GPA 3.7. Some of my friends said, they need 3.9, 4.1 and ect. Now my turn to reveal the ultimate required GPA. It’s more than 4.20001 😉 (didn’t like to damage my image 🙂 by saying  >5.0) where the maximum reachable  GPA is 4.2. Everyone laugh but I never worry because Impossible is Nothing. While everyone gets maximum GPA of 4.2, I want to put a top margin by achieving a highest GPA of 5.2, forever – may be Guinness World Records .

Like my previous GSOC failure research, I did a research on this issue and found a formula . . .

formula –>   required GPA disproportional to credits  —> GPA ∝ 1/credits  🙂

According o the formula the research results are,

Increase the GPA – very very difficult task

  • Give some donation to University (please note that it’s not BLACK MONEY).
  • Create a fake student(not FACEBOOK) account and add them together.
  • Introduce our pals GPA calculator – 1000% accurate  😦

Increase the credits – easy task

  • Use my monkey brain and steel the credit from others.
  • Enroll all the available subjects even agriculture, law and BOOK subjects.
  • Use my credit card to add more credit to my student account.

Headache forced me to post this post 🙂 – wasted 1 hour 🙂

NetBeans platform plug-in – new file type & multi tab

Posted on Updated on

In my degree program I have a module called industrial training program which I have to follow 6 months in an IT organization in order to get familiar with industries and this module helps to build a strong relationship with industry. And I had a chance to work with NetBeans platform when I was worked in a software company as an intern. Knowledge transfer is one of the main activity in IT organization – share their knowledge with others so I believe that by expressing thing I learnt as a post will help others as well as to me also after some time back.

When I was there I developed a NetBeans plug-in that convert the application as a NetBeans plug-in which provides same functionalities that available in the existing tool.  So this post and the coming posts will talk about the implementation I made while I develop the plug-in. here I’m not gonna describe everything from scratch and I believe that you people have some basic knowledge abut NetBeans platform and plug-in development. If you want get the basic knowledge you can follow NetBeans platform site. Actually what I’m gonna write here is, the small problems I face while developing the plug-in. And that would be the problems you may be faced and searching for the solution.

In this post I attached a small NetBeans plug-in module that create a new file with .abc extension and open it as an xml editor. This is the very basic implementation in new file type module and in future I will post, how we can add additional feature to this module. Maily i will focus on Multi View Elements like Source and Design.

There is lot of tutorials available, just have a look and get basic knowledge. .

Sample code available here

Here I used NetBeans 6.8 IDE + java 1.6
