Alexandria University website hacked

In 24/7/2009 the Alexandria University website was hacked, it appeared that some college whom i appreciate their opinion see that thing is normal to happen and it is not a big deal, whether i like that opinion or not i have to admit that
  • there must be something that i have learned in the past 5 years whether i remember it or not.
  • there must be a value for the CSD certificate "i have to admit that".

the message sent by the hacker is kept here.

i am sorry about my original post, may be a was overreacting, angry because it was a shame and i can't reply with any form on it. Finally i am sorry for the bad language i have used.

Sending HTTP GET request in Flash Lite 3.0


To send HTTP GET request in Flash Lite you have two options depending on the type of data you are receiving

Case you want to receive normal plain text
Sample Code

===================================================

var requestHandler:LoadVars = new LoadVars();

requestHandler.load("http://www.google.com",requestHandler,"GET");

requestHandler.onData = function(str:String) {
trace("data reached");
if (str == undefined) {
trace("Error loading content.");
return;
} else
{
trace("can be read.");
//testTxt is a container where text can be displayed
testTxt.text = str;
}
}
===================================================

N.B:
If you tried to print the str in the output window, the str will not be printed, the only way to see that output is to set the content of a container with it.

Case you want to receive XML data

Sample Code

===================================================

var xmlData:XML = new XML();
xmlData.ignoreWhite = true;

xmlData.load("http://rss.news.yahoo.com/rss/entertainment");

xmlData.onLoad = function(sucesso:Boolean):Void {
if (sucesso) {
var firstlist:Array = xmlData.childNodes;
var secondList:Array = firstlist[0].childNodes;
//.......................
//.......................
//....................... so on
}
};

===================================================

Tips for your graduate project documentation

In this post I will try to document what I have learned during the documentation phase of my graduate project.

Graduate project report comments:
  1. Written in Latex recommended, I personally suggest using MikTex and TexMaker.
  2. Introduction should goes like that
    • Overall All Idea.
    • Importance of that field "your thing".
    • Problem you are trying to solve.
    • Your contribution in solving that problem.
  3. Sections and subsections words should be capitalized.
  4. Avoid don't , isn't, use do not , is not.
  5. All axes in graphs should have the description and units.
  6. Make graphs black and white printable, show description line with different styles (solid, dotted) and not different colors.
  7. Add Related work sections for describing work done by others in the same field, don't forget adding references.
