A deep thought………

Filed under: Uncategorized — maniacmind @ 10:54 PM

sitting alone and watching the sky

With the restless shore when the tide is high

Watching the ignorant walk of time

He always wonder what went wrong with life

With malevolence surfaced and lunacy revived

No friend to share a laugh or a foe in sight

Where is almighty Why doesn’t he show him the light?

When the war is within and warrior inside,

He finds no peace or no solace

But continues to fight against those Who were once his allies

He seems happy but he is sad

His day is good but dreams are bad

He had to smile for the picture in the frame

But had anyone seen his face when mirror calls his name

He was ignored easily for he had no fame

But he was always there when someone has to blame

No soul belived when truth was said

But they belived in his lie instead

Now who cares my thoughts lives or die

they are always nip and tuck In race with life

But why they did this to me

Was always a topic for him to debate

The game is over and he is left alone

before you realized its gone

Working with the usb to serial port convertor for hp6515b

Filed under: Uncategorized — maniacmind @ 9:48 PM

well got my usb to serial port converter few days back….initially it gava a lot of problems but somehow managed to make it work

assuming that you have the driver for your cable ..lets get started

the problem that is faced by me is that the ports that ponyprog was showing  was COM3 and COM4 but hey were occupied by some other applications  and the device manager showed that my serial port adapter is on COM5

so here is what i did(rather say what soumen and me did)

1.    Go to the device manager by right clicking on my computer and then on properties.

2.    Select port to see if your device manager is detecting your adapter or not.

3.     If its not detecting it that means your driver is not installed if you don’t have the drivers seach on net…or try too know the chipset used   then you can surely get the drivers( i got prolific 2303 working for me)

4.    Now if its detecting it go to the properties of the adapter,then on port settings and click on advanced change the port to COM1 or COM3 if its not used

5.    Restart the device manager .it will now show the port you selected..

6.    Now in my case i was using pony prog…so here is what i did..

7.    Attached my micro controller and calibrated it..

8.    Go to device set-up and select AVR micro—->at mega 16 (as i have this board).

9.    Now select security and configure.  bits from the above menu and check CK OPT,BOOT SZ0, BOOT S 71

10.   That’s all we did…………..time to burn the code press ctrl+w

ps: well it takes a hell lot of time to burn the code ……abort the verify operation as it takes a lot of time and always gives an error…its not a big deal as our code was working perfectly even after aborting verify

feel free to add and comment on it…………

LIFE THESE DAYS…IS TOUGH

Filed under: personal — maniacmind @ 10:13 PM

Well i m writing this post after a long time. well there is loads to etalk about…..first the techfest of the college called “Techtatva”. this time saw many changes in the techfest ….and was part of few of them myself.

first one was the whole process of registration was done realtime due to ankur’s work. then had a great fest this time with friends orgnizing the new look computer science events which in my opinion were refreshing.was part of mobivision event ….a rather new one. loved watching participants come with really good ideas….some of them were so good that  i wished i had those inbulit in my phone.particularly those involving free voice mailbox and other one was the alarm .here are some pics of the event i would like to share with all

was fortunate enough to get a good pool of volunteers to help me out with the event.had a great time with friends during that period.

but then everytime you feels life is on the right track something or other happens………yeah u guessed it rite….exams took place as as expected from the electrical dept. of our college they screwed us all…..if that was not enough for authorities they gave us a hell lot of assignments and guess what these morons have the time to check it and reject it saying its copied….wtf…….and also the people here don’t celebrate diwali in big way so the festival everyone back home is celebrating with such a zeal and intrest i ended up having just the dinner with friends and going to the college when whole north india was enjoying the fun and the real blast with fire-crackers……well that’s all cant think of much to write nw ……….just that i m looking fwd to the next week bcoz we have a linux insatll fest and guess what misery still don’t leave me …….i have my lab examinations next week too…………………

MOBIVISION WORKSHOP DAY 3 AND 4…..OVERVIEW

Filed under: mobile — maniacmind @ 6:02 PM

AS PROMISED ITS SUNDAY AND I M WRITEING THE DOCUMENTATION OF THE THIRD DAY OF WORKSHOP………………

we covered messaging here is a sample code with comments explaining the process…

# import the messaging module
import appuifw
import messaging

# create text input field
data = appuifw.query(u"Type your name:", "text")

# define the mobile numbers here
nbr1 = "123456"
nbr2 = "234567"

# define the text that the sms shall contain
txt = u"Greetings from:" +data

# create a query with type: "query" -> appuifw.query(label, type)
# by using an if statement one can check whether the user has pressed "ok" -> True or "cancel" -> False
if appuifw.query(u"Send message to your 2 friends","query") == True:
    # send out the sms; include the mobile number and the text to be sent
    messaging.sms_send(nbr1, txt)
    messaging.sms_send(nbr2, txt)

    # confirm with a pop-up note that the sms has been sent out
    appuifw.note(u"Messages sent", "info")
else:
    # in case the user had pressed "cancel", send a pop-up note that the messages have not been sent out
    appuifw.note(u"Well, your Messages are not sent then", "info")

then we learned how to create an appilictaion menu…

# this script lets you create a simple application menu

# NOTE:
# press the options key in order to open the applicaion menu
# when running the script!

import appuifw, e32

# create the "callback functions" for the application menu
def item1():
appuifw.note(u"booooom", "info")

def item2():
appuifw.note(u"gotcha", "info")

# define an exit handler function
def quit():
app_lock.signal()

# create the application menu include the selectable options (one, two)
# and the related callback functions (item1, item2)
appuifw.app.menu = [(u"one", item1),
(u"two", item2)]

appuifw.app.exit_key_handler = quit

# create an active object
app_lock = e32.Ao_lock()

# start a scheduler
app_lock.wait()

then we learned how to make forms Here is the code tried in the workshop….

import appuifw
import e32

# create an Active Object
app_lock = e32.Ao_lock()

def forming():
# create a list to be used in 'combo' selection mode
model = [u'6600', u'6630', u'7610', u'N90', u'N70']

 # define the field list (consists of tuples: (label, type ,value)); label is a unicode string
# type is one of the following strings: 'text', 'number', 'date', 'time',or 'combo'
data = [(u'Mobile','text', u'Nokia'),(u'Model','combo', (model,0)),(u'Amount','number', 5),(u'Date','date'),(u'Time','time')]

# set the view/edit mode of the form 
flags = appuifw.FFormEditModeOnly

# creates the form
f = appuifw.Form(data, flags)

 # make the form visible on the UI
f.execute()

def exit_key_handler():
app_lock.signal()

# set the title of the script
appuifw.app.title = u'Form'

# call the function that creates the form
forming()

appuifw.app.exit_key_handler = exit_key_handler
app_lock.wait()
a saple of form

a sample of form

then location id script was written its as follows:-

import e32
import appuifw
import location   #we imported a module named location whose function will beome clear as we move dowm the script

class gsm_location :
	def __init__(self) :
		self.text = u""

	def gsm_location(self) :
		(self.mcc, self.mnc, self.lac, self.cellid) = location.gsm_location()
		self.text = u"MCC: %s\nMNC: %s\nLAC: %s\nCell id: %s\n" % (self.mcc, self.mnc, self.lac, self.cellid)
		return self.text

	def close(self) :
		pass

e32.ao_yield() 

class gsm_location_app:
    def __init__(self):
        self.lock = e32.Ao_lock()

        self.old_title = appuifw.app.title
        appuifw.app.title = u"GSM Location"

        self.exit_flag = False
        appuifw.app.exit_key_handler = self.abort

        self.db = gsm_location()

        appuifw.app.body = appuifw.Text()
        appuifw.app.menu = [(u"Refresh", self.refresh)] 

    def loop(self):
        try:
            self.refresh()
            self.lock.wait()
            while not self.exit_flag:
                self.refresh()
                self.lock.wait()
        finally:
            self.db.close()

    def close(self):
        appuifw.app.menu = []
        appuifw.app.body = None
        appuifw.app.exit_key_handler = None
        appuifw.app.title = self.old_title

    def abort(self):
        # Exit-key handler.
        self.exit_flag = True
        self.lock.signal()

    def refresh(self):
		self.db.gsm_location()
		appuifw.app.body.set(self.db.text)

def main():
    app = gsm_location_app()
    try:
        app.loop()
    finally:
        app.close()

if __name__ == "__main__":
    main()

well this was the program after which the programming basics like classes ,objects and modules were
undertaken for all that stuff please refer books if stiil got a problem discuss it on forums.lugmanipal.org

Now we wrote the scripts for getting battery information of the mobile

import appuifw
import e32
import sysinfo

def check_battery_level():
    batty = sysinfo.battery()
    print batty

def exit_key_handler():
    script_lock.signal()
    appuifw.app.set_exit()

script_lock = e32.Ao_lock()

appuifw.app.title = u"Battery level"

appuifw.app.menu = [(u"check battery", check_battery_level)]

appuifw.app.exit_key_handler = exit_key_handler
script_lock.wait()

here we defined a function called check_battery_life and used the module sysinfo

now i will end with the keyboard script done on the last day for any explainations please ask your mentors or leave a comment here…with your email-id

# Dialing script by Jurgen Scheible

import appuifw
import e32
import telephone

def main_menu_setup():
    appuifw.app.menu = [(u"dial", dialing),\
                        (u"hang-up", hangingup)]

def hangingup():
    telephone.hang_up()
    main_menu_setup()

def dialing():
    number = u'+1234566'
    telephone.dial(number)
    main_menu_setup()

def exit_key_handler():
    global script_lock
    script_lock.signal()

script_lock = e32.Ao_lock()

old_title = appuifw.app.title
appuifw.app.title = u"Dialer"
main_menu_setup()
appuifw.app.exit_key_handler = exit_key_handler
script_lock.wait()

if i have left of forgotten something please leave a comment or email me on shane2418@gmail.com
