Well, I am a busy bee lately! Actually, the bones of this article were written a few years ago, but I thought it was worth resuscitating and adding to.
Google is a great search engine, using the whole Internet as one big database. But that database, like any database, is only as good as the data put into it. And there's the rub. The latest article on Linux, Unix, /etc/ investigates

Credit card data security standard goes into effect
But there are concerns about its implementation
The Payment Card Industry (PCI) data security standard being pushed by MasterCard International Inc. and Visa U.S.A. Inc. went into effect today for all merchants handling credit card data, but concerns remain about its implementation and compliance validation.
Under PCI, all companies that accept credit cards are required to comply with 12 security-related requirements that call for, among other things, encrypted transmission of cardholder data, periodic network scans, logical and physical access controls, activity monitoring and logging.
It's almost two here, and I really should be in bed, but I was searching for information on a Cisco Catalyst switch and stumbled on this guy's site. It's truly weird; Cisco information disguised in the form of celebrity interviews. (borderline NSFW) Having said that, it's good info and it does make a rather dry topic more interesting.
Can somebone please TELL MY WHY I SHOULD ***NOT*** USE C++ FOR KERNEL DEVELOPMENT . what are the pros and cons of it?
I have a C kernel up and running , it is for i586+, has features such as user mode tasks with preemptive multitasking, rudimentary device driver support, paging etc. and some basic obvious things.
I know C++ language well. I won't be using exceptions. i also have coded basic functions to support some other C++ features such as global object construction etc., and the code for operators new/delete won't be much bigger [i have kmalloc()]. the test kernel with iostream and cout-cin works well.
Oops.. things change/move so fast.
My project got changed... nd here i am with tickets in my hand..gotta go to korea(Seoul)

Finally sorted out the requirements........ & here i am listening number of Guns N' Roses, November Rain........trying to put all that it takes to write a skull driver...... nd hook the memory device.
I don't know where to start. We had a blast, even though neither team got to the finals.
One of my teams had some technical difficulties with their autonomous mode, simply because they didn't want to bring it back to the testing area so that I could see what it was doing, so that I could tweak the timing and speed of driving, and its arm. Because of that, it flew out in to the middle of the field crashing into the center goal, while it was raising its arm. Its arm did get up to where it was supposed to be, but since it had slammed into the goal it was stuck in the middle of it when the bot tried to turn to its left, putting considerable lateral strain on the joint of the arm, which caused the plastic part of it to crack. After lifting up their third tetra of the match, the arm fell off. Lucky this was only the first day, and didn't count against their rankings, but when getting back to the pits, their instructor wanted to change the way they were playing. Eventually, all they were doing was blocking the robots on the other team from scoring, but they were doing it a little to forcibly. They put two decent dents into another team that almost got them disqualified.
This is the nth time i have to rewrite my email parser. This thing is so difficult to get right. I just want it to die! So easy for humans and so difficult for computers.
Is there a generic interchange format thats easier to program?
Though the Name sounds pretty simple its not as easy to learn art of website design & implementation.,I never liked working on this kind a stuff .. but I am compelled by situations around me to do this stuff. i was working today on the web site of our department.Currently the work is in progress so its not up :(
As of now its just a simple queries execution .. This is what i have chosen as the data base entry ..Oh i for got to mention that i am using mysql ( sexy DBMS :-X) as backednd its easy to use & configure .. i started off by creating database and granting previleges to the account on the database.Then i created one table for storing the details..The format of the table is like this ..
