Wikipedia

Over the past few days, I have been editing Wikipedia for money. It was the first time that I edited Wikipedia for money and I was fairly reluctant and hesitated a bit to take over Wikipedia editing.

Since then, there has been no looking back.

As far as I know, Wikipedia is an online encyclopedia with mostly pros and few negative.

Yourself or your company gain fairly better leverage than your competitors in terms of Search Engine Optimisation. It is a thing of pride to see yourself or your company name on Wikipedia. There is a healthy review system that reviews what you write.

The disadvantage is that many of the editors are working without pay and some of them are mischief mongers. Just trolling the site is their primary duty.

Wikipedia boasts of 5 million articles all of them generated with the volunteer driven editors and community editors.

Why Python is great?

I learnt Python after dilly dallying with other technologies. For starters, Python is simple and straight forward. More reasons to like Python.

You miss the comma, curly braces, I bet you wont.

I give up on Openstack

Dear All,

I was had bent on working and fixing OpenStack. But with the ultimate due things, and my own reports, I am giving up on Openstack. Marina Z was okay with it. But if you ask me , I would still like to fix up Openstack. Sorry, that I could not finish it.

Openstack Update

Two machines, one old, and another new, I may have forgotten the number of times that I have tried to fixup the patches so that I can work on them, but every time I run ./stack .sh. for the first time after complete wipeout of the non working setup of the devstack is not anything less than three hours.

Today, I did a run on ./stack.sh at 2:48 pm and it still is running after 5:15.

I really want to say, " Hey Bhagwan, manne oopar lele"

As far as I know..

I am a living person. This world exists as long as I live. I choose to exist even I am not there. I choose to not exist when there is a chance to do that. After all, every thing starts at the smallest atom. That itself is not mine. How can I claim that is not mine? Everyday, every single moment.

Problems with Openstack

Dear All,

Like I had announced earlier about me interning with Openstack as part of the Outreach instantiated by the Freedom Software Conservancy. I have been running into lot of problems with the setup itself for the internship. This happened after I received the first payment from Openstack. Here is the list of problems that I have had so far.

I installed and ran stack.sh almost twice on one machine, Dell Inspiron. That conked.

I was living alone when this was happening. I bought a second machine and tried installing Ubuntu again. Read about it here.

Then the second machine conked after all the efforts. So I gave up.

Now, the first machine, my old Dell Inspiron was somewhat working. I git cloned and tried working on a patch after that. Just before I submitted a patch, the old machine gave up. I had to remember that I was one of the eleven directors of Python Software Foundation. I decided that I could not handle being a volunteer director, then a teacher and after be an intern with Openstack.

I finished my teaching responsibilities working during day and trying to work on patches in the night.

Finally, I think my mind and body could not handle the stress of it all. I fell sick. No one around still.

I recently gave up my volunteer Directors role. I have already finished teaching responsibilities.

I got well somehow and after my mother did one thing. She went and put all my things and took it to herself to her house.

I had to restart the whole process again. I had to restart the internet connection at my mother's place again. Can someone advise my mother, and brother to stop yelling at my work? They keep fighting all the time.

More determined than ever, I started with more zeal and enthusiasm to finish the outreach program. My touch pad for Ubuntu gave up this time. I went to Shivajinagar to get the laptop repaired and at the same time, get the other laptop repaired. They sent me to Dell Exclusive Store near Indiranagar 100 ft Road. I went there, my touch pad was working. and windows installation was also working. They did some workarounds, I think and fixed the problems there.

I came home. Ubuntu on my old machine is not working. I dare not install Ubuntu as it wipes out the entire windows installation like the last time I tried installation.

I installed Oracle virtual box and then installed Ubuntu within the virtual environment,

This time, the devstack is not working at all. I have tried around eight times to be precise to get stack.sh to get up and keep running. Nothing is working so far.

I hope my mentors, Rodrigo Duarte Sousa and Raildo will be happy to help me out of this situation.

Mon-keying incidents

I wanted to write some fun posts. Here is one of a monkey incident. I burst out in laughter every time I remember this.

I and my college friends were on final year project tour. We went to a city with tiled roofs and lots of greenery around.

I stayed in a hotel with almost wet walls and grounds with only a dry bed.

Then, I wanted to go out for lunch. The lunch was arranged on the terrace of the hotel building.

On the stairs' railing, there were two monkeys sitting. One was very big and the other was small. They were sitting together.

Just for fun, I made a face, teasing one, at the two monkeys. The big monkey bared its teeth. I ran away to the terrace, totally unaware of what was coming. When I took my plate for food, two people came hurriedly. One fair girl and one brown guy.

They started telling me, Anu, I don't know what you did. I replied to them coolly that I did not do anything.

At that particular moment, one large monkey on the terrace came running towards me.

I got scared. Since I was in a group, the rest of the group shooed the monkeys away.

Then, I realized what I did on the stairs.

You have no idea how much I laugh remembering this incident. Even to this day. My stomach bursts out.
