Guest Speaker at PAF-KIET

Yesterday I was invited as Guest Speaker at PAF-KIET for delivering a session on "Object Oriented Programming using C#". The session was organized in Lab for a batch of MS students. The basic idea behind this presentation was to give an idea how we can utilize OOP in industry. Audience was around 30 students and 2 faculty members. The session went good, started with informal discussion on programming and problem facing by software industry. Later, formal presentation started in which basic concept of OOP disused with different examples to implement using C#. This time, I tried to include examples different than traditional examples. Like to elaborate inheritance, I told about a form with toolbar and then other forms utilize same toolbar by inheriting first form. A momentum presented by Mr. Muneeb R. Baig at the end of session. It was good experience and I love to give another such session.

GooglePages - Exceeded bandwidth limit!!!

Recently, I used Googlepages.com, known as Google Page Creator. Its a lightweight web tool for creating personal home pages and simple sites; and host these pages on Google server. Every thing is simple .... but I came across an error "Exceeded bandwidth limit' ... Error is simple, your site facing too much traffic ... but how much??? there must be a limit define by Google. But, unfortunately they said Exceeded bandwidth limit" basically refers to how much traffic your site can get during a given time. While we do have a limit set on it, we are not at liberty to disclose the amount at this time. If you exceed the bandwidth limit on your site, please know that your site will come back as soon as your site's traffic has fallen below our set amount. It is some thing unbelievable from people at Google!!! Amazing ...

Shortcuts to career suicide

Interesting!!! worth to read ... click here ( http://www.infoworld.com/article/07/03/27/14OPrecord_1.html )   I would like to quote some thing from that article ... I learned two lessons from this little melodrama: One, make sure there are witnesses when you're helping a coworker do his job; and two, keep your mouth shut at big meetings -- even if you're getting the shaft.
