Know where to check!!!

I was trying to use iframes in my website to display my photo album. Now the problem with iframes is that if u don't specify any height and width it uses the default height and width, which are extremely small. To specify the height and width you need to set the iframe properties dynamically using javascripts. I was using the onload property to call my script to set the size. I was setting the size but I was checking the wrong frame practically most of the day and was getting frustrated that it wasn't working. Well finally I thought ok am I checking the right place and I find that ofcourse I am not. Well breaking my head for like 3-4 hours cursing myself that I couldn't get it to work. I felt like kicking myself for my stupidity. I am still working on my beta website. Once its out you can see the place where I use the iframes.

Server is up yahooooo!!!

Finally, the storage server is up and running again. After spending the entire morning and the afternoon trying to figure out was wrong. Finally managed to rebuild the entire array with the available hard drives. There is still one drive with some bad sectors but I just hope that it doesn't show up in the next few days. Now that the storage server is up and running, I can now concentrate on my work. The plan is to work over the week on my research and work on my website over the weekend. I now have to work on getting the photo album uploaded, that's what is left.

Server crash

This is my first real post to my blog since the time I actually created an account on blogspot. Well and the best way to start is with news from my lab at Virginia Tech, Computer Systems Research Lab. Second day since the second crash of the raid storage server in the lab. We have one spare hard drive before we run out of all hot spares. We are waiting on two replacement drives. Currently drive is being backed up before the crashed drive is removed. Hope the storage server is up soon. During the mean time I am trying to work on my website. I hope to have the website up soon. Once its up will post a link that you can use to check out my website. Will end the first real post here.
