The Last Samurai & the theme behind !!

Since I was writing all the technical and related posts all the way, Thought of writing something different. A great movie i happened to watch. Well the movie is pretty old and yeah this was my second time of watching it. It is The Last Samurai, I was pretty mad because The TV station did not put the subtitles for the Japanese dialogs , yet I figured out its great meaning. Last samurai is a movie which shows the ancient Japanese culture. But for me the movie was something different. It showed the great discipline people had those days and how discipline change people.

The movie Brings out topics such as discipline, respect and the way to earn great honer. It shows that a man’s death will be honed by the way he lived his life. In an indirect way the movie shows that people need some spiritual bond to mold their lives to a better and a meaning full one.

Its a tragic movie filled with a great meaning. So if you have still not watched it. Then i think you better, because I believe that Last samurai gives a new meaning to life.

Great work Team Enterprise !!!

Busy as Never Before

It has been passed sometime, that i wrote my last post. I was very much busy running here and there working on some new things, studying for exams and writing documents on IT laws. The end of April and the month May as i never thought before am very much stuck with work. For some reason fortunately or unfortunately we have been selected for second round in Microsoft Imagine cup not under one category but under two . this made my and my team’s work double. For me i had some work in the company too. Then with that I am still completing some of my assignments in the university. If its some programming or involved with coding it could have being interesting but unfortunately its all about writing documents. about group work. BCS code of ethics and conduct IT laws and all sort of boring stuff.

Last week we finished and released the P2Pminds beta version and hosted under sandaruwan’s domain for testing. this is a web based knowledge sharing system we did for our Software Engineering group project. developed in PHP as usual and used some ajax validation.

Other than P2P am working on our Imagine cup projects mainly with the AcSO. Having some hands on experience with ASP.net. and yeah Visual studio .NET is awesome I have to mention. It does lot of automation you just drag and drop.. most of the things are done for you. We are thinking of Adding Some Microsoft Silverlight effects to the site to give some new look and to show off with the newest technology of web animation and data binding. So I will post the link to AcSO as soon as we hosted it in imagine cup server. Probably 18th of this month.

And yeah the GeoLink It is still in primary stages where we are checking out the mobile emulators coming with visual studio. Seems a lot of fun ahead.

Other than these Last two days I was studding from morning till the exam time for the BCS examinations. well I guess doing few past papers is all what you need to get through BCS.

so thats it for now I am hoping to write a post with some more value sooner.. maybe about .Net compact framework or some things about ASP.net web parts.
