Fuljhury's Website

Should have written about this earlier. About a month ago, I had developed the website of Fuljhury , my uncles' company. Fuljhury is a 100% export oriented knitwear manufacturer. 2 of my uncles and an aunt hold the topmost positions of the company. The website is a very very simple site consisting of basic info about the company and its production. The site was created in Google Pages and customized with Photoshop and Flash. Out of all the sites I've created, this one is the closest to professional, as this time I had to deal with DNS (Domain Name System). Fuljhury already owned the domain , and I had to point the domain to the Google Pages site. In order to do that I had to learn the basics of DNS, how it works and had to provide the necessary information to Fuljhury's domain hosts about the modifications that needed to be made to a couple of CNAME records. This was indeed a good experience. The site is under construction still, and Inshallah in the future

About the Last Semester, and the Present

Let's start with the good news. The merit list for the second year second semester (last semester) was out a couple of days ago, and Alhamdulillah I found my name in the seventh spot. That means I've been included in the merit list for the third time so far. Being among the top eight also means that I would soon receive 18000 bucks as weaver Inshallah. All thanks to Allah. Now let's get back to the present, which is in striking contrast with the past. The current semester seems to me to be the most disturbing so far, none of the subjects seem interesting to me. Particularly the subject Linear Systems, which is considered to be one of the toughest courses of the whole curriculum, is causing much disturbance. Digital Electronics-II is probably the only subject which seems a bit fun, although not as much as it predecessor, as this one is mostly theoretical and brings back the gloomy memories of Electronics from 1-2 and 2-1. Electrical Machines-III was supposed to be interestin

Shocked, Stunned, Stupefied

I don't know how to start writing about this, so I'm just gonna start. A lecturer of our university, of our EEE department, was so far known to be a one of a kind talent, a genius . In the notice board of our university, in our website, there were appreciation letters which were claimed to be sent from foreign universities, praising this lecturer for his outstanding research and stating that he had won awards from IEEE for his works. From other teachers of the faculty, his colleagues, we got to know that he was a genius, who is under contract to work for IBM , and have been offered to perform researches at MIT. Recently I heard from some of my classmates that there was some trouble going on regarding him. I didn't know what the problem was, until yesterday. In a post in the popular Bangladeshi group blog, Somewhere in... , it was reported that these letters of appreciation which were claimed to be sent from renowned foreign universities, were nothing but fake. The eviden

Walking in the Rain

After coming to Uttara, whenever its raining in daytime, and I'm at home and have not taken my shower already, then you wouldn't find me in my room. Instead I'd be on the roof, taking a shower in the rain. That's why a couple of days ago when it started to rain pretty heavily at noon, I went straight up. I don't know why, I just love the feeling of the rain on my body. Many of us believe that walking in the rain will cause fever or cold. I had the similar idea many years ago. I had a home tutor who used to teach me math, he said that this concept is nothing but psychological. Because thousands of rickshaw pullers in street are getting soaked in the rain all day, but they don't catch cold, otherwise there would be no rickshaw pullers to be found on the street the following day as they would all catch fever. They don't catch cold cuz they are not concerned about it. Since then, my fear of catching cold in rain was over, whenever I had a chance, I got myself so

Net Disruptions - When Will This End?

For the last six days or so I'm happing some real trouble with my internet connection. I'm currently using Grameen Phone 's internet, which so far has been very satisfactory. I called GP to know about what was going on, and they said that they have been informed by BTTB that there has been some disruption in the undersea fiber optic cable in Singapore, which is the reason for the current hampering of the internet connection. BTTB could not inform them about the possible time for the problem to be fixed. Even after six days the connection is no where near normal. This has really made me wonder, that in the current age of our extreme dependence on the internet, how come that the net is so damn vulnerable, that every now and then this hyped up high speed cable gets cut somewhere, and the internet service in several countries are hampered together? Only a few months ago a major disruption occurred in Egypt, and it happened countless times in our country. Shouldn't this ser
