From a Believer to an Agnostic

So, yes, I was a believer in God and used to think of him as a protector of all. I, as a Hindu, have pictures of our deities at home. I used to touch the deity's feet before leaving home asking him to take care of me and my family members on travel, provide us the intelligence to tackle the life etc.

I still remember that when I used to be alone at home at night with no electricity, I used to keep the deity's picture in my hands as to chase away the imaginary ghosts. While traveling...

Still kicking

Posted 12-12-2011 at 08:44 AM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

Just a quick update...I'm still alive. I've been super busy with moving and getting settled in with the new job and city and new schools and all that jazz. It's been hectic. Rackspace is soooo worth the "life upheaval". (Google "rackspace castle" to get an idea of where I work. I love this place haha.)

I'll post more techie stuff when I get some time...

There are lots of full length movies (http://www.youtube.com/movies) on youtube . You cannot grab that video as it is drm encrypted . So I decided to use ffmpeg
I took a screenshot of web browser (opera) then opened jpg file in kolourpaint to find out top left & bottom right of video frame in browser . They were found out to be
24,129 & 669,524
which indicated 645x395 video dimension
So , I ran
Code:
ffmpeg -f x11grab -s 646x396  -r 30 -i :0.0+24,129 -sameq out.mpg

SELinux and Apache ProxyPass

Posted 12-07-2011 at 12:39 PM by sag47
Updated 08-05-2012 at 12:58 AM by sag47

Today I was having trouble getting a httpd ProxyPass and ProxyPassReverse to work. As a background I'm working in RedHat Enterprise Linux 6.1. It took me a while to figure out what was wrong (longer than it should have) and as it turns out it worked after I disabled SELinux. So my configs were correct in /etc/httpd/conf.d/* and it passed all config tests. I'm sure you don't want to read a whole post of talking so I'll just get right into the grit of the commands.
