Yesterday I turned on ifttt.com to Auto-tweet it. I thought that it would be Cool to gather all popular news and put in my tweets.
It worked but in a different way. No doubt ifttt is good automated service, but the feeds which are coming is not really very good. So, it keeps spamming all your profiles.
I also noticed the number of new followers is very less as compared to the number of people unfollowed. Sorry for that. I understand why. If people have followed you, he is interested in getting your news rather than world news.
The IFTT ran about 20 hours in my twitter a/c (@ppiplewar) and now I have shutdown that service.
Thanks for bearing it.
Although this is very easy process, but everyone described this process in very complex way. I have a tough time. This is my attempt to simplify all those complexities.
Just Purchase the certificate from SimpleDNS.
Submit the private key, DNSimple can do this for you. Allow them to generate private key for you. This is
After few days you will receive an email from COMODO Group. They will provide you certificate. This is
server.crt. This certificate is at very end of the email. See this
mod_ssl apache extension if it is not enabled. (Skip this step now. If at last if it doesnt work then do this)
Copy both of this files,
server.crt and add it in some folder.
Now, configure the apache site specific
config file. So, it will be look something like this if you’re using
<VirtualHost *:443> ServerName test.example.com #!!! Be sure to point DocumentRoot to 'public'! RailsEnv staging DocumentRoot /home/ubuntu/staging/public <Directory /home/ubuntu/staging/public> #This relaxes Apache security settings. AllowOverride all Allow from all Require all granted #MultiViews must be turned off. Options -MultiViews </Directory> SSLEngine on SSLCertificateFile /home/ubuntu/staging/certs/server.crt SSLCertificateKeyFile /home/ubuntu/staging/certs/server.key
CNAME record in DNS . It will look something like this
CNAME test.example.com 3600 example.com
Wait for an hour and then restart the server. It will suppose to work. Let me know if you have some problem.

It is the time to review my new MacBook Pro retina display. I was using it since 4 months and did tons of things from software development to document editing. I was also the user of windows and Linux. i used both of this operating system for about 2 years. So i guess i have some general idea and can give put perspective how this MacBook pro is.
It is incredibly fast. It starts / shutdown instantly. Even the applications like chrome starts within microseconds.
Like windows, the culture of using pirated softwares is very less. You may not find free softwares out. It also means you have to purchase many original softwares.
Apple software aren’t too great but good. For document editing, i will chose MS excel or MS office. Software which are available in App store are fucking awesome, they are fast and there is big variety of softwares available in iStore.
For software development, this is the best machine. iOS,Apple OS are actually modified linux. So, you will get all power of unix.
Bottom line, i wont switch to windows, i will keep using my lovely Mac.

I love it. This image is worth of 1000+ words.
Many of you will soon became engineer but unfortunately you dont have any job. That’s not good, but not the end of the world. I got job after my college/degree and college doesn’t helped at all. My life after college was’t too bad. It is all because i have confidence. There are few thing which i guess you should achieve in order to get good job without any tension. Below i am listing few points
Btw, i am also writing few points which i adopted to achieve what i wanted too and i usually do. May be that will be helpful for you.
I do things what i love. I love programming, internet, exploring new things so i spend most of my time in doing those things. It wasn’t easy to find what you really love. I use hit and trial method. I learned and still learning many thing which i found fascinating . And till yet, programming is the best one which suites me. I also love music and i am not even sure i will make my carrier in computer. I still learning and doing it what i love. I spend 70% of my time in doing what i love, 20% in learning what i found it interesting. And,10% of my time in reading people opinions.
I value my time. I dont watch movies and serials regularly. I know they are very very addictive. I watch it just for fun. I am not addicted.
I dont underestimate myself and other people. I know my weakness and strength. I believe in
Do one thing and do it well.
This is very interesting question. There are many reason why i changed my decision. Some of them are as below.
It is not like that i am not interested in doing job. I want to be the part of something substantial. Unfortunately in my college, some(all) companies are looking for just workers.They dont want engineers. Engineers are not like that. Campus recruitment companies grade students on the base of college/school grading. You have very less control on your growth. And, most of the time you will spend your time in doing support thing. You will also undergo to training phases. I have spent engineering years in learning , practicing all real coding. I don’t want to spend my time in doing this. I didn’t applied for any campus. There was one time when i was flew in college campus environment. I went to one professor, asking them to allow me to sit in campus, i tried explaining them why i deserve it. But he gracefully didn’t listened me. He gave me the reason that if you can do it, why don’t you do it independently. Bill Gates followed this path, why dont you. That moment was very insulting. The professor compared me with Bill Gates and i am no way i am like him. (i adore Bill) Some of you can also see this condition as i am didn’t got the opportunity to sit in campus because i am not eligible, that’s not exactly true. Since, 6 or 5th semester i was earning 30-40K. I went to professor not because of money. My father want me to see as employee. Btw, i also got many other companies offer on that time, one of them is flipkart.
Because of some personal problems i want continuous flow of money. In freelancing sometimes i earn only $0, $600 and sometimes i made 4500$. The flow is not uniform and continuous.
I love doing freelancing but i usually encounter some employers who just want to waste there money on me. They are not actually want to create software, may be they were drifted by external fashion of tech culture. This really annoy me that i am working more seriously then my employer. Not all employers are serious.
In freelancing, you have to be very experienced , polite and have to hold goods skills . By hearth you should be hacker, you must have an attitude to get things done. Unfortunately, i am not a hero which can maintain this.
Right now, i joined greentoe.com, a newyork startup. I love the idea, what’s more i see that the founders were serious for there startup. I respect that. They are offering me everything which i minimally required. They respect my work . They are very cool and flexible
I have created a new chrome extension which speaks main content of the webpage. This extension uses chrome text-to-speech(TTS) capability which internally uses operating system TTS. This extension algorithmically determines main content of the webpage and speak it. You can also select the text and click speak icon to speak the selection.
I usually read lot of articles and prefer software to speak its content automatically. I searched in google, in google chrome store and firefox addon store but there is nothing like that. This inspires me to create a new extension.
It doesn’t sounds good that no one created such type of extension yet. How can that be even possible. Well it is. The process of extracting the main content of webpage is very difficult. You can read more here. There are some well known APIs which can provide main content like readablity but it is trade off. It will consume some bandwidth of user. I really don’t like this. Since, it degrades the performance. Then one idea clicked on my mind. I have used safari iReader. I searched in google and fortunately i found its google chrome ported iReader souce code. The source code is outdated and it is not exactly what i am looking for. But it gives me some clue and helps to do it. So i have created it. I have used & modified some google chrome sample add-ons code.
Below,there is the video which will show you how to install and use page speaker add on. I have created this video only for non-tech savvy user, rest can skip it.
I have open sourced this extension.You can check this by going here. There are few known bugs but because of limited time availability i have shipped it. I love if you push the fixes.
Life is big journey, don’t be disappointed if you’re not successful now , you will as long as you don’t give up.
