At last I figured out the problem with my card and got it rectified. Actually I just had some money transferred to the account since, the balance was lower than the base amount I have to maintain. That was why no online shopping. Whatever, I just noticed a SALE for .in domain names and got uconnect.in registered in my company’s name. Now to put the domain to some use, I will go ahead with a hosting account with godaddy.com with unlimited disk space and bandwidth.

So, it’s official now, my card seems to be defunct. After two failed attempts to recharge my mobile online using my card yesterday, I tried again tonight. Well, I was trying to register a “******.in” domain in my company’s name and when I reached the final step of paying the registrar company, my card again left me out in the cold. Shit….. Tomorrow I am going to get my card/account checked for sure.

Basically the algorithm of facemash is based on the algo. for ELO ranking of chess players.

For more info refer to Wikipedia.

I seem to have struck some kind of a bottleneck which I wouldn’t be able to give any time until next year (at max. January). I am loaded with a lot of projects and ideas. So, I have my hands full. But let me tell you people that I have completed the coding. The program is based on C so no visuals but there seems to be some problem with database management end so I will not be uploading the buggy executable. But, I soon will.

And then after that I will be uploading a web version of it too.

Just figured out the algo for facemash. Now the only thing that remains is the code.

Though, I must confess that it was not all smooth sailing all the way. Actually the code is partially based upon the ELO Rating System. The difference being that we do away with the changing the value of  “K”.

I must say, I enjoyed the brain-storming and am quite impressed by this feedback based probabilistic analysis method. The most daunting task was to set the feedback algo correctly in order for the comparison between the i/p choice and the probabilistic choice.

Have started working upon the code. By the way I am using ‘C’ as the programming language. Basically I would just put the values inside ‘i’th structure and do the computation.

Wish me luck

After watching the movie, The Social Network, I was inspired to work out the algorithm for facemash. Well, the geek inside me never takes no for an answer, so I just started to work upon the algo. While working upon the algo, I found out that the algo is the same that is used for ELO Chess Rating System, though with some change.

OK, I just found out that Mark Zuckerberg’s now defunct domain facemash is up for grabs. There are still a couple of days left for the bidding to end, but the highest bidding has already reached approx. $30k. Dunno whether it’s just a publicity stunt for the movie or whether it’s for real. However I did a whois upon the domain and got some results. Seems like it(the domain) sure is the real thing.

The latest entry suggests that the domain now belongs to some other guy who is trying to sell it now.

Hello people, I am maxaxis. Programming and networking are my passions and I enjoy all things tech. OK, you must have got the point that I like geeky stuff. Maybe you are thinking that I am one of those nerds out there but that is not the truth. Although, I must confess that I am super-lazy and hate socializing.
