My Dance1

I have never been a great dancer in my life, but i love dancing and love to dance to big audiences and at a big stage.I really can't dance when there is no crowd before me. I love the butterfly flying in my stomach whenever i see large audience and to perform before them. I have only three of my dance videos with me and i have shared one in this blog. This was in my MCA first year in Anna University and in the large Vivekanda Auditorium. The occasion was the Annual Alumini Meet. True the audi was not completely full but neither was completely empty. People were just back after lunch and our performance was the indicator whether they ll enjoy or sleep through the rest of the day. I cant boast much, but i can assure you that they did not sleep..:) Well the dancer dancing with me is Lawrence, my class mate, best friend and one of the persons due to whom i did that performance. We actually decided v would dance only the nit before and practiced from nit 2-5. There was on more classmate ganesh who was supposed to dance wit us, but slept off in the nit due to over doze of food..:) sorry mate, i should have woken u up. And for people who think lawrence can't dance pretty well, wait to see his further dances and decide his ability. he is a class act. May be loss of sleep or unavailability of his girl friend in the hall made him forget where he was.  I owe a lot to you for myself putting up this show. most of the steps were choreographed by him. And last but not the least special mention to Reuben Emmanuel Joe, my official cinematographer to pictured all my dances and almost most of the photos that i took in recent times..:).I miss teasing u lot  machi....Oops i missed a set. A special thanks to all my classmates and batchmates who with their whistle sound made me feel as if i was standing with the oscar in my hand..:) miss u all mates. I ll never forget how much u all gave for me. This is a tribute to you all...


  1. U danced quite well Mr.SHANKAR ji......

My 10 years in Application Development

It's been around 10 years since I started programming. May be a bit more, if I have to include my first attempts at C programming in school. But it would be a grave insult to call remembering ten lines of code and just replicating it to put a star on the screen. I also did a course on Visual basic, but it was more gimmicks that Application development. But it was truly in the year 2007 when I started my Master in Computer Applications that I found a new flare for developing applications. 
I was very late to computers in general and even when I joined my Masters, computers were not really accessible to me. But when I joined my Masters where one is actually expected to hone the skills which they already have, but in case it was were I was learning the skills, initially it was very difficult. I was not sure what computers had for me nor I had a natural flair for programming. But the thing about computers that attracted me was the visual medium it gave. Initially it was just a door t…

Changing Timezone in Postgresql, Ubuntu

Timezone and locale are integral concepts that one should be aware of when implementing a System. For example. if you create a database in PostgreSql, it will use the default System settings for the database. Lets say you have a server in UK and your client is US. If the client tries to retrieve the current date or time, it is going to show the UK time and not the US one.
Today I encountered a different issue in our client place where the Ubuntu timezone and PostgreSql timezone were showing a incorrect values. Instead of Indian Standard Time (IST) it was showing Pacific Daylight Time(PDT). These are the steps that I followed to change the timezone to IST in PostgreSql and Ubuntu.
Changing timezone in Ubuntu:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdataYou will be prompted to choose the continent and then the area. Provided screen shots where we configure the location.
Use TAB key to navigate to the OK button and then press Enter.

The changes will get reflected immediately. To check it you can open a n…

Dissecting Openbravo 3.0 UI Architecture

Having been worked on Openbravo 3.0 UI for more than a year now (right from RC1) , Openbravo has leaped ahead of most contemporary ERP's in terms of UX design and usability. And a part of the credit has to go to the community too as they were actively involved in finalizing the UX and also involved enthusiastically in tested out the RC versions and providing their feedback.

In this post, I have tried to draw limelight on the basic UI components that are being used in Openbravo and their corresponding smartclient components. This is just to provide a very high level idea on how the entire architecture is coupled together. I have tried to use a single screen shot of Openbravo interface and tried to map the base components here.

The hierarchy can be visualized in simple terms as follows:

Exhaustive information on these components are provided in the Openbravo Wiki here.

Most of these components are defined and managed from individual files (or code) thereby making it really easy to …
