Today I played aroud with Junkbuster and Squid in Linux. Cool! I am using the Junkbuster modified by Stefan Waldherr <>. What I like of this guy's hack is that no longer do you see broken images. He had substituted the broken image logo with a 1x1(?) pixel. Squid just blasts the whole downloading process.

Together these two make my life easy and relaxed. I just don't need to see anymore hotmail logos, Slashdot logos/ad banner and even Kuro5hin's logos and banner!

Not to get back to my Masters project!

I was trying out Active Perl after a long... long time and was quiet impressed by the amount of progress. Things were quiet smooth, except when I needed to use PPM. The PPm , unlike "perl -MCPAN" doesn't do an automatic config setting the first time it is used. Thus it took me some time before I realised that HTTP_proxy had to be set as a ENV variable.

The guys should get this step in because when they expand and have mirror sites for their packages, one should be able to choose the site to use the first time around. I guess just following the present style in perl should be good enough.

Lately I have been trying to play around with MP3 streaming. Since my Univ has a hast LAN, I decided to write a search engine for MP3 search over Univ. LAN.

The whole process consists of two parts. First I use MP3 Voyeur to search the LAN for MP3 files. Then I wrote a perl script to put the generated MVL file into a MySQL database. Then I wrote a searchable front end to the database. Everything seems to work. The only problem is that MP3 Voyeur seems to be slow. It has been running for some 7 hours now. It has found around 32,600 MP3 files so far.

Next I will try to make dynamic MP3 playlists for myself. Ahhhhh once MP3 Voyeur finishes the search :(

I just had a very bad week. It turns out that the project that I was planning to do for my Master's degree has been done by some group for over 5 years now..

So I am, right now, in the hunting_for_problem mode.

Just sent the first draft of one of my course assignment to the lecturer for "Sneak Preview". I was suppposed to write on the use of "Template and Frames" in programming. I chose Tm (Template Manager). Waiting for the lecturer's reply.
