A sample GITORIOUS project

Create an account in gitorious and create a project.
Then add a SSH key.

Add a file called .gitconfig in the home folder like follows:

name = your_name
email = your_email
gl= "log --graph --pretty=oneline --abbrev-commit"

Create a local repository for your project. ie., a folder in the name of your project.
For example: My local repository was "aish". Add all the project files in the folder.

aishwarya@aishwarya-desktop:~$cd aish
aishwarya@aishwarya-desktop:~/aish$git init
Initialized empty Git repository in /home/aishwarya/aish/.git/

aishwarya@aishwarya-desktop:~/aish$git add .
aishwarya@aishwarya-desktop:~/aish$ git commit
(After this command u fill find a text editor, type "first commit", then press f2 and y to save)

Software Freedom Day '09

This year the SFD was on 19th september.
The list of students who were going to participate in the various events were announced. what a surprise, i was there in the "python for scientific computing" stall. My group of 6 students were selected for going to the Birla Planetarium. We started working for it two weeks before itself.. though the topic was difficult, i took lot of programs, installed various packages and started learning..
There was also another group of the same stall who were going to put up the same stall in the college premises. so we 12 of us joined together. we did everything together.. We completed everything ontime..
On 19th morning we were in BP. We meet so many people.. gained knowledge..
it was nice being there..

Fun learning PHP

I thought of learning PHP.I really liked the language. I enjoyed learning.. i chose the NACE Academy for learning PHP.
Finished the course and now trying to learn the advanced concepts in PHP..

The Way I migrated to linux!
While learning php, I found I could work on linux well. So installed Ubuntu at home.. Then after installing all the software in it, I found Linux better than Windows!! Now I don’t switch on to Windows at all…

Software Freedom Day '08

It was in the 5th semester, i was called for the "DBMS" demo stall for the Software Freedom Day '08.
It was nice learning MYSQL. We won the First place in the stall, but what a great pity, the certificate committee members made a mistake. They wrote "winners" for the Python stall members and "runners" for the DBMS Stall members.. How sad...!!


Then it was in the month of february 2008, my name was there in the list of members going for the MIT FOSSCONF. The topic for the demo stall was "Linux Desktops". We started preparing about the Gnome and the KDE desktops.
We enjoyed a lot in the demo stall. I learned something new. But even then at that i was saying "I Hate Linux & Nothing comes like Windows".
Days went on, then after the end of the semester we finished the exams and said "Good bye" to Linux.

Linux- When i heard the word for the first time..

It was the 2nd year in college, i was called for the Foss Club Meeting.
I didnt know y i was going. All my seniors were talking about FOSS, LINUX. 
But i didnt really know what i was..!!
Then in the 4th semester we went for the Operating System lab. There i found out something different on the systems running. Then the lab admin told me it was Linux "RED HAT".

My project in gitorious

Finally i committed my project in gitorious..
here's the link..
It was Arun SAG brother who helped me a lot with the GIT commands...
And the ebook,

The Only God I Worship

My Sweetest Grandmom,
You are(were) an extraordinary
person on this earth....
You made me smile
when i shed tears..
You showed me the 'path'
when i knew no way to go..
You showed me light
when i stood in darkness...
You gave me the confidence to live
when i was in a state of dieing..
You stood for me all the way
in sorrows, giving your shoulder to me..
But now the only big sorrow for me is
"You've gone away from me"
"Grandma" is the word which makes me cry &
brings all the pains and sufferings....
Searching For "You", my beloved grandmom..
With lots of love and your thoughts,
