Reverse a LinkedList in JAVA
Reverse a LinkedList in JAVA

It’s 2AM and my insomnia is in full-motion as usual. My random browsing stumbled me upon this site that has a list of good technical/programming questions, and one of which, rehashes some of the memories from my college days. The task is to reverse a linked list, and while the question is asked...

SOLVED: Forward IP/Port request to another WAN IP

I recently had a requirement from a client to “proxy” all requests to a particular IP. Reason being, they wanted to force the DNS updates onto their end-users who had their DNS servers lagged. Also, the point is to redirect users who had the IP address “bookmarked”. IAC, being...

SOLVED: SSHD “/bin/bash:permission denied” on Windows 7

I’ve been having a hard time getting sshd to accept logins on a Windows 7 x64 box. The problems ranged from the error mentioned in the subject line (“/bin/bash: permission denied” appearing during logins) to silent failures during password authentication, during which the ssh connection...

Just when I thought Palm was about to regain the stock back in the smart phone industry with the release of it’s Pre, I was corrected by a post from Joey Hess on how Palm has been sneaking behind my back and collecting my personal data, including names of installed apps, application usage (and... 

Sprint hash codes
Sprint hash codes

Enjoy these hash codes from Sprint. I have the list compiled for the Palm Pre, but most of these codes should work on other Sprint phones, as well: ##STICKYDIALER# (784259342537) This enables/disables the Sticky Dialer feature. The sticky dialer feature, when enabled, allows the phone app to run in the...

$tweet tweeting from shell / command-line

Here’s my attempt at giving something back to the software world. While playing with the twitter API (which is uber-cool, BTW), it seemed I could update the status on my twitter account by simply doing an HTTP POST.

Cisco got no love for Windows 64-bit? OSS is here to save you!

After my recent laptop upgrade, I bacame a [forced?] owner of Windows Vista 64-bit OS. Well, of course I didn’t waste any time and multi-booted the puppy with Ubuntu and OSX (yes, that’s Mac OSX). Long story short and while trying to install the Cisco VPN onto my windows slice, I discovered...

[Solved] Eclipse IDE (Access Restriction) issue

For the sake of keeping it as brief as possible, while saving you Eclipse IDE users hours of aggravation around the infamous “Access Restriction” issue, this is what usually does the trick for me. YMMV, of course: 1. Right-Click on your project and go to “Properties”. 2. Go to... 

A new chapter in history starts today

I’m watching the inauguration of soon-to-be now elected president Barack H. Obama go down at the Capitol hill. Also physically present are as many as 2 million people surrounding miles around the podium to witness the historic event unfold as the first ever African American president gets elected...

30 Life Lessons Learned by Age 30

Yes, I’ve taken the leap into the big 3-0! Time sure flies. Seems like just yesterday that I was in my mid teens and was horribly spoilt as a kid. By the time I was 22, I was a full-time student working on the final year of my Master’s degree, I was a resident assistant at college, AND I...
