Habitator On It’s Way

Habitator is growing up.
Wrote a 0.001v of it, pushed it to FixCorp.
Life at iThoughtz is as easy as I’ve ever lived. Awesome people to work with, in an awesome air.
College feels like a pest, ruining a couple of days of the week. But, atleast not as brutal as the first seven semesters.
Project is nothing like I’ve dreamt of. The application of it never matters. All that matters, is a dozen of powerpoint slides and lots of A4 sheets.
It’s really strange how they expect the project to be based on IEEE papers, assuming they know what they really taught.
I can write a XYZ-Bootstrap, or a Framework for cross platform application development, or something more, but will never be able to prepare PPTs and print reports on A4 Sheets (with a headline in Times New Roman, 14pt, and abstract underlined).
So what do I do, keep my geek stuff out of Project and take up one’s that pleases everyone in the court. That’s what I did. A decision hard to make, but worth it.

Readlog

Wrote this snippet of code, to log my progress through the books I’m going through, and post it to my wordpress.
Tried to make it a chrome extension, but felt better off putting it as a bookmarklet.
I simply took the chapter information from url suffix, calculated percentage of completion of the chapter by interpolating scroll bar position and overall scroll height, and arbitrarily computed the book’s name by url splitting and from title. All these data get’s stitched together as a log and is thrown to wordpress. Though not elegant enough, would be ultimately useful for me.
Simple to use. Create a new bookmark, and put the gist/code inside the url part. Save and use the bookmark to log your progress through the book, as and when needed.
This will remind me of those reading stuff that I left to hell, and a lot more than that. After all logging is good for health :-)
The Readlog I was talking here, had come to life.

TODO #edited

Almost half of my previous version of TODO is scratched off.
aftermath:

  • A little bit comfortable with HTML5
  • Far more better in jQuery, Javascript and Better is not Best.

todo still:

  • #Automenu remains stagnated, thanks to my bad HDD. Well, I already got it replaced, waiting to go linux!
  • Finish #Automenu
  • Into an Internship with iThoughtz. Devote time learning and doing stuff. #mandatory.
  • Get a dozen of IEEE papers on text mining, or atleast a couple of them. Research time.
  • Gulp peter norvig’s book on AI, and everything possible related with NLP.
  • Implement.
  • Get the hell out of college, with a killer Project.

The Anatomy Of Getting Degree @ Anna University

He keeps wondering and wondering what exactly a Final Year Project should look like.
He thinks that it might be like developing something that’s both creative and useful for the world, built ground up by applying whatever technologies he mastered through all the past four years and beam it into a product that will give him a phenomenal industry experience of developing a real time software and asdhfsldahfdklshfl…wait a minute…

“Whats that flyleaf, there?”
