Code for RMI Calculator in Java

This is my assignment for Distributed Operating Systems. You’re free to download and use the source code for reference, but I would discourage using the code directly. Also, do not claim to have done this program yourself and you’re fine. :)

This code does Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division. Use ‘rmic’ to compile the code and create server and client stubs before you run it.

So what then? The only command that worked on my system was cd. (Not quite what I needed, eh?) I even had to shutdown my PC by turning off the power switch. Yea.. so there I was… messed up system, lots of time at hand. What did I do? I installed Ubuntu.

Gnome 3 on my PC

Trying out gnome-shell on Debian

It’s been a fortnight since Gnome 3 was launched (6th April 2011) and today I got my hands on Gnome3 for the first time. The highly anticipated Gnome-Shell that’s supposed to make all other desktop environments archaic finally arrived at Debian‘s doorsteps (available for amd64 and i386 platforms right now). Well, it’s still in the experimental repositories but I was feeling impatient, so I decided to download the experimental version. Read more…

The Innovision Website and NTH :)

This blog is not just another howto blog, but also my personal computer blog. The past few weeks have been very busy and interesting for me. Since the previous posts have all been guides, this time I’d like to share with you what geeky events have been going on in my life. 🙂
