Welcome SAM!!!

How many of you are bugged by Cyberoam at your workplace or college??

For those who don’t know, Cyberoam is a corporate firewall used by many organisations including our college… 😑 😑 😑 to block websites and restrict user’s internet accessibility. To continue (so called) uninterrupted access to internet user needs to login ever hour in Cyberoam client. In our college it also restricts the amount of data that user can access in 24 hrs to 100Mb. So if your usage exceeds than there are only three options for you:-

1. Wait for clock to Pass Midnight.
2. Plead your friends to give you their account details.
3. Make a fool of Cyberoam(Bypass it)….. πŸ˜›

Well for third option you need to be a genius…:D and for 2nd option you need cooperative friends… πŸ˜€

Enough of Cyberoam, lets talk about SAM(Syberoam Account Manager). SAM is simple GUI developed in Python with Qt bindings in collaboration with dhinchak (who gave birth to it… :D) for managing Cyberoam Accounts. In this you can add multiple accounts if you know your friend’s usernames and passwords and to reduce your annoyance we added certain features to it.

It re-logins into the current account after definite interval of time defined by user itself, it can also switch accounts if usage of one account reaches critical limit specified by user or it maxes-out. There are also notifications options which user can customize according to his liking. There are many more features in it which user can exploit if user wishes so as it’s OPEN SOURCE …. :D.

That’s my friend SAM( πŸ˜€ ). Do you like him?….NO…it’s your choice. It’s my creation and I love himm… :P.

After reading the post ,if you are slightly excited to check out SAM, it’s source is available at
SAM. For for information please have a look at README file in the source.

Though it’s still in development phase and since its tested only on our college’s server, it might not work fully or even partially outside our campus. Although we are working on it.

See you later….
Adios and Do comment… πŸ™‚ .


Apology of NULL Pointer

Well this post is not exactly my creation rather I came accross it when I was surfing trolltech’s blogspot.

So I am just copying the text, as I liked it very much and wanted to share.

Here it is:-

"Nobody likes me. I’m despised everywhere I go. I am accused of being the responsible of many problems and even calamities. Some say that I am accursed. Some even say that I am some kind of disease that needs to be cured. When people see me the first thing they think is β€œoh no, not again…”. Nobody has a kind word for me. People spends hours and hours finding ways to make sure that I am not welcomed. They spend incredibly amounts of time looking for ways to avoid me, to squash me and to make sure I cannot even get close. Even worst, some people has managed to make me invisible to their eyes, so even if I appear they do not see me. If I manage to get close and say β€œhi”, they do not say β€œhi” back to me. In fact, whenever I say something people look at me very weirdly. People has been told since the beginning that I am the worst thing that could ever happen to their software.

They do not understand me. And in fact I think nobody understands me. But that is ok, because no matter what I will still be around after your software is done. I will still be around when your software becomes outdated. In fact, you can count on me being around all the time. And yet I’m not haunting you. If you just stopped for a while and listened to my message, you will see that I can be your best friend. My mission is very simple: if I appear in your software it is not a sign that your software is badly designed, I’m just pointing out a case that was not considered before. If you could just understand that sometimes it is much better that I come and say β€œhi” than to close the door to me, you will realize that we can work together to make your software the best software ever. So please, stop cursing me and for once try to listen to my message.”
