Dream Come True

Ever since I was small (both in age and in size), I've always wanted to write my own games. The first game that I remember playing was digger when I was just around 7 years old. I didn't have a computer back then, I went to my friend house after school to play. Then when I was around 9 my father told me that those games were written using "programming" and that I could learn to do programming too if I wanted. At that time my father was doing his PhD at Warwick University and we lived in Coventry. And sure enough at the public library there was books for programming games. I was so excited. I copied them into the computer (my father had one at home then, it didn't even have a color monitor, just green shades) and mess around with them. That was how I started to learn programming. I cut my teeth on Quick Basic writing mostly text based games from books I borrowed from the public library. That was a long time ago...

But that have always been the dream. I've learned a lot along the way. Even picked up windows and directx programming when I was 17, trying to come up with something more than just proof of concept and that I can actually promote without feeling too ashamed at the final outcome. And back in the day, distribution has always been pretty hard. But now, with app stores and the likes, and phones that people play casual games rather than hard core 3d games which I can never catch up with by myself, I've finally produced something that somewhat resembles something like a publishable game. Introducing my first full game released to the general public, Space Diamonds.



Basically the aliens have come to steal your hard earned diamonds. Your friend Bob is working as fast as possible to save them onto your space ship, but someone got to fend them off in the meantime. That is your job Hero. You've got to shoot them aliens down and make sure they don't get away with the diamonds. It gets harder every time but you can do it.

So if you have an android device, with a presumably big screen (I think most probably the game won't work very well on small screens but I haven't got any device to test), please download the game and give it a whirl. Maybe you'll like it and give it a good rating and review... :) maybe...

Thank you... this is a dream come true... :)

haproxy on Centos 7 with SELinux

Setting up haproxy and varnish with reference to the configuration from these sites: http://sharadchhetri.com/2014/12/20/how-to-install-varnish-4-version-on-centos-7-rhel-7/ https://www.upcloud.com/support/haproxy-load-balancer-centos/ And finally can access plone on the server. But when I check the haproxy status, only client1 can be accessed. All other clients were down with general socket error, permission denied. Googling a bit I finally found out it was due to SELinux. Refer to this page: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/26420729/haproxy-health-check-permission-denied With the solution from that page, I installed policycoreutils-python and tried to run the command given: semanage port --add --type http_port_t --proto tcp 8081 But that command failed with the error that the port was already defined. When I looked it up using: semanage port -l | grep 8081 It belonged to some other type (transproxy_port_t). When I tried to delete the type using: semanage port -d -t transpro…

Installing Centos 7 on HP G7 Server

When I first initially tried it, the installer cannot detect any local hard disk to install to. After much googling found out that it was because a certain driver for the Smart Array Controller is no longer available on Centos 7. To allow for use of the new driver on old hardware, you need to enable the option. Once the DVD has booted and on the first menu screen, highlight the first option and then press tab which would bring you to a command line where you can add additional parameters to boot. Add the following parameters: hpsa.hpsa_allow_any=1 hpsa.hpsa_simple_mode=1 And then press enter to boot. You should now be able to install as you wish. After installation, on the first boot, make sure at the menu, press 'e' to edit the parameters and add them again. Then once booted, go to /boot/grub2/grub.cfg to permanently add the parameters to the menu.

Me and my sleep apnea

I have been suffering from sleep apnea for quite a few years already. It started to show when I was still with OSCC some 6 years back when I would sometimes "accidentally" sleep at my cubicle. Early on I just dismissed it as because I was growing fat (we ate a lot at OSCC.. :P and I barely went anywhere except my cubicle) and also because of babies. Oh babies.. those cute little things that keeps you awake at night so that they can be so cute and charming when your friends and relatives come over the next day. So it was dismissed. Later on I got more and more used to sleeping at work, started associating it with my lack of motivation and sometimes feeling of downright depression. And I kept growing fatter and fatter, which I assumed was the reason why I was getting more and more tired.

But then around 2 years ago a friend of mine suggested maybe I've got sleep apnea. And a few other people suggested I go to a sleep clinic and all that. Put it off for quite a while. Until…
