It seemed like ages had passed. Long ago, sometime around the prehistoric time, I knew a fellow dinosaur called CS. Yesterday, thanks to orkut, after ages, we got back in touch as men. It was quite a pleasant reunion and a very memorable day in my life. We did not speak for long as it was way past bed time, but caught up with most of the old times and the happenings in our lives.

- ATAD #23 – Pinhole cameraA pinhole camera works on a simple principle where light enters a small hole to produce an image on the film/sensor. This image is usually sharp, but since only a small amount of light is entering the pinhole, longer exposure times would be required. A pinhole can never replace your camera lens, but such a […]veed
- ATAD #22 – File Archives on LinuxThe two main formats for file archiving are tar and cpio. Both a used in tandem with compression utilities like the gzip and bzip. The archive formats were initially used for tape and other sequential access devices for backup purposes, it is now commonly used to collate collections of files into one larger file, for […]veed
- ATAD #21 – Linux process priority rangeThe Linux kernel implements two separate priority ranges. The first is the nice value, a number from –20 to 19 with a default of zero. Larger nice values correspond to a lower priority (you are being nice to the other processes on the system). Processes with a lower nice value (higher priority) run before processes […]veed
- ATAD #20 – Adding a linebreak in a wordpress postThe wordpress wysiwug editor seems to remove the tag from the posts and prevents me from adding line breaks to format posts better.

Since its development in 1969, Unix has undergone a lot of changes and has evolved over the years. Here are a few of the efforts towards standardizing Unix. Probably the first step was […]veed
- ATAD #17 – I/O interfaceCommunication between the processor and other devices are enabled by an I/O interface, and the Front Side Bus (FSB) is the data transfer bus that carries information between the CPU and the Northbridge (memory controller hub) of the Motherboard.

Of note are the characters '$', '`', '\', and '"' echo "Hello Word" #output: Hello Word echo "\"Hello World\"" #output: "Hello World" With certai […]veed
- ATAD #15 – Beyond the CPU clock speedIn completing a task the computer splits each instruction into a series of independent steps. The computer that driven by a clock will process an instruction at a time and proceed to the next one in the instruction pipeline when the next clock signal arrives. So naturally, faster the clock speed, the instructions waiting in […]veed
