l “First they ignore you, Then they laugh at you, Then they fight with you, And then, you win”.
-Mahatma Gandhi
On this note we, on the behalf of D-CLUB, are immensely delighted and obliged to present the inner reflection of the students of BSAITM. Logix is a platform not only to showcase the talents, guiding personalities but also to explore the unexplored and in the process learn how to walk on the path of success. Each one of us has a vision and a dream in our eyes. But there are very few of us who sincerely work for the same. People say that Mahatma Gandhi, Sachin Tendulkar, Martin Luther King, etc. dared to dream but actually they worked to achieve what they dreamt of.... And the thought ‘to win’ is the first step towards 'life-transforming victory’. And now, the time is here to lay a foundation of success for which we have taken an initiative for the first time to reflect and relate to the fellow students and a faculty of high standards through Logix. This edition of Logix will: Encourage, teach ,showcase, inspire, motivate and tickle your funny bone. So sit back, relax and enjoy reading the fine piece of work…..

Director’s Message
My dear students, I am very happy to know that you are bringing out a magazine by the name of 'Logix'. This is a good endeavour on your part. The magazine will not only be informative and useful to the students but will also serve as a platform for the students to ventilate their views, relating to the technical know-how of the subjects and the latest advancement in the respective fields in the industry. The students are expected to work harder to enhance their technical & analytical skills and all-round knowledge about general matters. This will increase their innovative aptitude, which will enhance their efficiency and effectiveness at the time of searching jobs in industries. Today India is amongst top 5 nuclear powers. It became possible due to two architects of atomic energy programs in India, Dr. Bhabha and Pt. Nehru. It was because of great vision, strong capability in policy making and support of Nehru that India could draw a road map for development of atomic energy even before its independence. 'Logix' will definitely help in realizing your dreams, taking the right steps and hence walking on the path of success to achieve the goal. 'Logix' will provide you an environment of competition. A good competitor always accepts the decisions with a smile and congratulates the toppers. Every student tries his/her best to get the top position in every field of life, but usually very few reach on the top. Education is everywhere and for everyone. The important thing is what kind of education you need and where it is. Everybody has some kind of addiction and I wish our students to be addicted to productivity oriented thoughts and face challenges . When the biggest problem is solved, we feel pleasure. After a while next problem on line comes again and our mind starts working to solve it. This process is continuous and it makes our life interesting, if we involve ourselves by heart. The worship of work gives the pleasure of life and peace of mind. In the universe, nothing is useless. Everything is useful for someone at sometime and in some quantity. It depends upon we people how to make use of it for ourselves or for the mankind. Through 'Logix' our students will definitely think how to work and utilize every moment of time and every particle of waste in the development of nation.

Thermodynamics of hell
The following is an actual question given in a University of Washington engineering mid-term.The answer was so "profound" that the Professor shared it with colleagues, which is why we now have the pleasure of enjoying it as well.The bonus question was: “”Is Hell exothermic or endothermic?” Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's Law, (gas cools off when it expands and heats up when it is compressed) or some variant. One student, however, wrote the following: "First, we need to know how the mass of Hell is changing with time. So we should know the rate with which souls are moving into the Hell and the rate they are leaving it. I think that we can safely assume that once a soul gets into the Hell, it will not leave.Therefore, no souls are leaving. As for how many souls are entering into the Hell, let's look at the different religions that exist in the world today. Some of these religions state that if you are not a member of their religion, you will go to Hell. Since there are more than one religions existing and people do not belong to more than one religion, we can project that all souls go to Hell.With birth and death rates as they are, we can expect the number of souls in Hell to increase exponentially. Now, we look at the rate of change of volume in the Hell because Boyle's Law states that in order to keep the temperature and pressure in the Hell constant, the volume of Hell has to expand as souls are added.This gives two possibilities: 1. If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls enter the Hell, then the temperature and pressure in the Hell will increase until all Hell breaks loose. 2. Of course, if Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of souls in the Hell, then the temperature and pressure will drop until Hell freezes. So which is it? If we accept the postulates given to me by Ms.Teresa Banyan during my Freshman year, '...that it will be a cold day in Hell before I be friends with you.' and take into account the fact that I still have not succeeded in having friendly relations with her, then the 2nd possibility cannot be true, and thus I am sure that Hell is exothermic and will not freeze."

Biggest Conspiracy of my life
As a kid we are brought up in a fairy world, well if not all of us, its true for most of us. Then comes a time when all the people around us, who made us believe in these fairy tales suddenly leave us... all alone in the real world. A world which is far more different than the real… A world which suddenly doesn't give us the preferences, that we were used to… A world that all of a sudden starts treating us like an adult… Throughout our childhood we crave, to be treated like an elder And then suddenly our wish is granted!!! Towards the end we are left feeling…..dejected and cheated . Atleast, with me, it was…and still it is…. I've been mad at my parents for such long time for they made me believe.. that I was special… that the world is a good place… And that life is worth living for!!! I don't know why but, I still cant get over it And probably wont be able to…..for a very long time. Now ,that I have 'tiny miny' bit of sense of reality It has become difficult to imagine my life without these beliefs It has been practiced for the longest part of my life What I don't understand is “Why show a world so nice…when it doesn't exist?” Just to trap people and make them live in hope?? And when they realize the truth Make them suffer in misery??? What ? what is the reason??? For me the realization has been so sudden, that its kind of overwhelming. And probably it has hit me in the lowest phase of my life But i guess its only the transition that is difficult… neither of the world is too bad. (look,...I practiced it so bad that I'm still stuck with hope) Its hung in between…and that is the bad phase… But one cant help it you have to go through the transition…on your own. U just cant get up and be an adult…in a day!!! As we all move on with our lives, we are all meek for our adulthood responsibilities.

Synonym for BAMBOOZLED??

But, we all put up a brave face and carry on…. and sometimes its just too difficult… to carry on again and again, when all the people tell you that, you are incapable of taking care of yourself! But I guess it's a part of growing up and stop listening to people!!!

In this edition of the magazine we want to tell you some basic things about Robotics, what it actually means.The word “Robotics” does not come from the traditional definition “a four legged robot providing ease and comfort to you". Instead, all the things in your surroundings which are automated come under some of the categories of robotics. The basic fundamentals are few and you can combine them in different forms to make your robot work differently. Many of us think that robotics is something which is difficult to start and need a lot of knowledge. But for all our dear friends we make it clear that if you want to start something new you need patience and sincerity rather than adequate knowledge.We must now discuss some interesting facts about robotics.You might have seen some robots balancing objects or kicking the ball. So how could a robot know if there is an object in front of it or how it can locate only that particular object? This is done through image processing which is the next project for our club and its the responsibility of the whole club to work for thisand find the ways to build these types of robots. Now we are done with our swarm robotics and we will plan to organized a workshop in this regard or will make it ourselves. Robotics have a future in industries for e.g. Microsoft uses line follower robots to provide canteen service for their employees. It also provides an opportunity to participate in various competitions and will also add to your resume. Many of our team members participated and have won many prizes. “GON-Z WILL BRING NEW IDEAS AND TIPS NEXT TIME TILL THEN KEEP EXPLORING............”

LOGIX TEAM: Your experience when you came to the college ? Apoorv Kaushik: When I got admission in BSAITM, I knew nothing about the college except for the name. But I found a good infrastructure and a supportive faculty too. But frankly speaking, initially I was out of focus and lacked a decent level of seriousness. At the end of 1st sem. I was burdened with 2 supplees which taught me how to tackle difficulties.. LOGIXTEAM: Is it important to have basic instincts from childhood ? Apoorv Kaushik: Its good if you have it, but if not then it can be developed. LOGIX TEAM: How much importance, market exposure carries? Apoorv Kaushik: Market exposure is one of the most important aspects of any professional course, especially at a time of recession. But, excelling in this field gives you the right edge.

LOGIX TEAM: Please tell something about your 4th year project. Apoorv Kaushik: My final project that I submitted was a jet engine which was the 1st in Haryana's 3 popular universities. When I filed and compiled the topics and related subjects, I was surrounded by questions regarding its feasibility, its existence and was warned that if I didn't submit the project, the consequences would really be bad. It was something which no-one else thought of making. I followed what I dreamt of, worked hard for it and finally…made it. Students usually look for ready-made projects or buy them from the market which is not right.All knowledge that you have accumulated over the past few years goes in vain! Practically, this is not the correct attitude.

LOGIX TEAM: What have you learnt from your experience ? Apoorv Kaushik: Don't give up and face challenges.Try to figure out the solution instead of running away from it because running is loosing. Every problem has a solution. Even I solved the difficult task of making a jet engine and I got help from the college management and the teachers.

LOGIX TEAM: Can we have last words of motivation ? Apoorv Kaushik: Lastly, I would like to say that one should never get disheartened by less marks, supplees, no placements etc. because in the end its your knowledge, skills and hard work which pay and matter. So at the end of the day what matters is your capability. All the best to all!!!

Superstition or Science???
Science was prevalent in ancient times and it still continues to guide basic day-to-day lives in the present times. But over the time, ancient science has taken the form of superstition. How ironical it is that today ancient science and methodologies, in the form of superstition and modern fundamentals stand against each other. Here are some illustrations in support of this: Our grandparents and their grandparents urged us to get up early in the morning and touch the ground with our hands before keeping our feet down. Also we should offer water to the first ray of the sun. Logic: During winters, if we keep our feet directly onto the floor, cold gets onto the head and could cause brain hemorrhage in extreme conditions. So when we touch the floor, the body temperature optimizes in response to change in temperature. And offering water to the sun in the morning had a logic behind it viz. infrared rays of the early morning sun are good for skin and health.

Know Your i-Pod
Do you own an i-Pod? If you do, well, you're part of the majority of music lovers. More and more i-Pod are sold every day than any other MP3 player in the world today. So, if you have an i-Pod, congratulations! And if you don't own an i-Pod, well, you will eventually. The iPod is taking over the world and soon, we will all be slaves to the little white digital music player from Apple. But, before we truly succumb to the i-Pod revolution (if we haven't already), here are some interesting facts about the i-Pod that you may or may not know about the world's favorite MP3 player. • The i-Pod is the most popular MP3 player in the world. There is nothing that even comes close to outselling it. • Although there is no world record for the greatest number of songs stored on an i-Pod (considering the various sizes of Apple i-Pod available), the consensus is that approximately 16,000 songs is about the limit. • The full range of sound for an average i-Pod is about 120 decibels. To put that in perspective, that's like standing next to a jet as it takes off! • Just as the iPod is the world's most popular digital MP3 music player, it is also becoming a favorite target of thieves and crooks in terms of portable electronic devices. And there you have it! Some interesting, useful (or useless) facts about the Apple iPod. 12

Sixthsense/WUW - Wear Ur World’
The future is here- ’Sixth-Sense / WUW - Wear Ur World’ developed by a young mind from our country. PRANAV MISTRY, a graduate in computer science from Palanpur, ‘master in design’ from IIT Bombay , and ‘master in Media Arts and sciences from MIT, USA’ is a keen lover of ‘designing technology’... 'Sixth-Sense' is a wearable gestural interface that augments the physical world around us with digital information and lets us use natural hand gestures to interact with that information. We've evolved over millions of years to sense the world around us. When we encounter something, someone or some place, we use our five natural senses to perceive information about it; that information helps us make decisions and chose the right actions to take. But arguably the most useful information that can help us make the right decision is not naturally perceivable with our five senses, namely the data, information and knowledge that mankind has accumulated about everything and which is increasingly all available online. Although the miniaturization of computing devices allows us to carry computers in our pockets, keeping us continually connected to the digital world, there is no link between our digital devices and our interactions with the physical world. Information is confined traditionally on paper or digitally on a screen. Sixth-Sense bridges this gap, bringing intangible, digital information out into the tangible world, and allowing us to interact with this information via natural hand gestures. SixthSense frees information from its confines by seamlessly integrating it with reality, and thus making the entire world your computer. The Sixth-Sense prototype is comprised of a pocket projector, a mirror and a camera.The hardware components are coupled in a pendant like mobile wearable device. Both the projector and the camera are connected to the mobile computing device in the user's pocket. The projector projects visual information enabling surfaces, walls and physical objects around us to be used as interfaces, while the camera recognizes and tracks user's hand gestures and physical objects using computer-vision based techniques. The software program processes the video stream data captured by the camera and tracks the locations of the colored markers (visual tracking fiducials ) at the tip of the user's fingers using simple computer-vision techniques. The movements and arrangements of these fiducials are interpreted into gestures that act as interaction instructions for the projected application interfaces. The maximum number of tracked fingers is only constrained by the number of unique fiducials , thus Sixth-Sense also supports multi-touch and multi-user interaction. The Sixth-Sense prototype implements several applications that demonstrate the usefulness, viability and flexibility of the system. The Map application lets the user navigate a map displayed on a nearby surface using hand gestures, similar to gestures supported by Multi-Touch based systems, letting the user zoom-in, zoom-out or pan using intuitive hand movements. The Drawing application lets the user draw on any surface by tracking the fingertip movements of the user's index finger. It also recognizes user's freehand gestures (postures). For example, the Sixth-Sense System implements a gestural camera that takes photos of the scene the user is looking at by detecting the 'framing' gesture. The user can stop by any surface or wall and flick through the photos he/she has taken. It also lets the user draw icons or symbols in the air using the movement of the index finger and recognize those symbols as interaction instructions. For example, drawing a magnifying glass symbol takes the user to the map application or drawing an '@' symbol lets the user check his mail. The Sixth-Sense System also augments physical objects, the user is interacting with, by projecting more information about these objects projected on them. For example, a newspaper can show live video news or dynamic information can be provided on a regular piece of paper.The gesture of drawing a circle on the user's wrist projects an analog watch. Such is a remarkable invention made by a person who is just like any other normal person but with a vision to create ‘SOMETHING BIG’. There are many such inventions by this great person which you can explore.....

Well, here in this post we will let you know what hot-n-happening is around or 'is about to' in the world of advanced technologies. We know about various multimedia data transfer and sharing technologies, where 'Infrared' was the 'wooing' thing. Then addition of 'Bluetooth' just made data sharing a 'candy' thing!!! ‘WiFi’ was an awesome invention too. But this time we have come across a new data transfer technology between any two multimedia devices i.e. 'TRANSFER JET'. TRANSFER JET is a touch-based, extremely fast Data transfer technology, which allows a user to transfer data with speeds equivalent to 560 MBPS. Imagine you with your friend…"hey Sid, give me that 2 GB movie yaar...” You touch your devices and movie sent in less than 4 secs….Clearly, the unique qualities of TransferJet™ makes it useful for many applications. So lets go a little deeper into the technical details of those qualities. TransferJet™ can transfer data at a peak speed of 560 MBPS, with an effective throughput up to 375 MBPS. The maximum range of operation is on the order of a few centimeters. And the network topology is always point-to-point.These last two features greatly enhance the simplicity of the system. In addition, TransferJet™ contains a robust protocol which includes error detection and correction, packet acknowledgment, and packet resend facility. All of these details work together to minimize complexity and interference.The low transmit power and point-topoint topology helps to minimize power consumption. Finally, each TransferJet™ device can detect the presence of another device as it comes within its range. Therefore, it is possible to save power by transmitting only when another device is detected. This is another advantage of the touch model. It is rather safer & more secure data transfer than Bluetooth. The TransferJet connection requires very close proximity of only a few centimeters. This close quarters communication greatly limits the possibility of electronic eavesdropping of the wireless transmission while still providing the benefits of very fast data transfer. Similar to Bluetooth, Transfer Jet will offer users the ability to restrict their equipment to communicate with only approved devices, preventing accidental data sharing with other non-approved equipment

THE GREEN GADGETS: Mouse with Grass Cover Seems Pointless. Here is a weird and pointless mouse which comes covered in grass. While the idea may look good to those who advocate green living, It is rather funny to imagine you might have to water the mouse so that the grass stays green and fresh..!!

SERENDIPITY AND SCIENCE
Serendipity: “The faculty of making fortunate discoveries by accident.” Most of us might have heard of the famous quote by French pathologist Louis Pasteur that, “chance favours the prepared mind”. By “chance” we most commonly refer to “luck“ and speaking in scientific terms, it assumes the name of “serendipity”. Serendipity essentially means “invention by sheer luck or by chance“. And it is very interesting to see how luck had favoured scientists in bringing out some of the great conclusions to complex scientific problems. One of the finest examples of serendipity is the Universal Law Of Gravitation given by Sir Isaac Newton. In the year 1665, when Sir Isaac Newton was only 22 and a student, a deadly epidemic of plague broke out in England and he was forced to take rest at his ancestral home. One fine afternoon when Newton was resting under an apple tree, an apple by chance fell over him. It was this event that boggled the inquisitive gray cells within Newton's mind for why all bodies that are thrown upwards, always come down back to earth?? It was this simple event that paved the way for the discovering of gravitation & gravitational forces. Another such fine example of serendipity is the discovery of molecular structure of Benzene (C6H6). Benzene nowadays is a very common component found in many organic compounds. But in the early 18th century, the molecular structure of Benzene was the cause of major scientific research. Basically the molecular structure of benzene consists of 2 sub-structures with the double bonds i.e. 'C=C' moving from 1,3,5 to 2,4,6 positions. One night Augustus Kekule, the man who discovered the molecular structure of benzene was carrying out the research in the lab, but without being able to derive a solution. At last tired, he retired to sleep. Suddenly, in his dream he saw 6 people who were arranged in a regular hexagonal shape, dancing around a circular shaped flame. When he woke up he was clueless so as to what the dream might have conveyed to him. It was within months that he realized that he had actually discovered the true molecular structure of benzene. These people fancied their chances and discovered the fundamental entities of high level scientific methodologies used nowadays. So keep your minds, ears and eyes open and keep exploring...... - Saurabh Basu

Code For Swarm Robotics
Swarm Robotics Assembly of robots may seem to be complicated but actually, it is pretty easy. All you have to do is to connect the two bots i.e. 'mother’ and the ‘baby’ robot with the help of simple wires. Keep in mind that you have to connect the two, using ports PC4 and PC5 of baby bot to the PD4 & PD5 ports of mother bot. Here, the pins of Port D will receive input from pins of Port C so, port D is getting its input from Port C of the baby bot. Also you have to check the status of the mother and baby bot regularly and verify the position of sensors of the mother bot firstly and then the baby bot . Choose an action for the mother bot first and then, verify conditions for the baby bot to take necessary action. Follow this loop till the final condition is reached. This code is using binary values for the ports and if you are using some other controllers other than Atmega8, this code can be modified and converted to hexadecimal.
The code below is the code for a wired robo communication , a baby robo using the intelligence of mother robo #include <avr/io.h> #include <avr/interrupt.h> #include <util/delay_basic.h> void wait() //approx 100 msec delay at 12 MHz { uint8_t I; for(i=0;i<1;i++) _delay_loop_2(0); } void main() { DDRB=0b11111111; //Motor Output port for mother robot; only PB0, PB1, PB2 and PB3 are used DDRD=0b11001111; //PD4 and PD5 are sensor input pins coming from baby Robot; DDRC=0b0000000; //sensor Input port for Mother robot only PC4 and PC5 are used int baby_status=0, mother_status=1; // Mother status variable int baby_left_sensor=0, baby_right_sensor=0; // baby sensor variable int mother_left_sensor=0, mother_right_sensor=0; // mother sensor variable int state=0,finish=0; while(1) // infinite loop {mother_left_sensor=PINC&0b0010000; // mask bit 4 i.e 5th bit from right mother_right_sensor=PINC&0b0100000; // mask bit 5 i.e 6th bit from right baby_left_sensor=PIND&0b00010000; // mask bit 4 i.e 5th bit from right baby_right_sensor=PIND&0b00100000; // mask bit 5 i.e 6th bit from right if(!finish) { // run untill not finish if(mother_status==1) { if((mother_left_sensor==0b0010000)&(mother_right_sensor==0b0100000)) //if both sensors "on" { PORTB=0b00001001; // move straight } if((mother_left_sensor==0b0000000)&(mother_right_sensor==0b0100000)) //if left sensor is "off" { PORTB=0b00000001; // turn left } if((mother_left_sensor==0b0010000)&(mother_right_sensor==0b0000000)) //if right sensor is "off" { PORTB=0b00001000; // turn right } if((mother_left_sensor==0b0000000)&(mother_right_sensor==0b0000000)&state==0) //if both sensors "off" { PORTB=0b00000000; //stop mother robot mother_status=0; // set mother status to 0 baby_status=1; //enable baby robot by setting baby status to 1 PORTD=0b00001001; // move baby robot straight for 100 miliseconds so that it shift itself slightly to overcome both sensor off condition wait(); // wait for 100 ms state++; // increase state counter mother_left_sensor=127; // reset sensors to some illigal values mother_right_sensor=127; // so that if conditions after this line wont execute with old sensor value baby_left_sensor=127; baby_right_sensor=127; } if((mother_left_sensor==0b0000000)&(mother_right_sensor==0b0000000)&state==2) //if both sensors "on" {

MILLIONS OF AIRCRAFTS AT AIRPORTS IN FUTURE...... I was amazed to know certain facts about the functioning of the systems installed at the I.G.I airport during my 2nd year Summer In-Plant Training and the same I would like to share it with you. Can anyone imagine the number of aircrafts which can be managed at the airports in a certain control region, in the near future? The answer is 7.2 x 1016 or it may go up to 5.20 x 1033 , which sounds unbelievable! The existing system uses 2 kinds of RADAR (Radio Detection And Ranging) i.e. PSR & SSR ( Primary And Secondary Surveillance Radar respectively). Along with the Range, Azimuth & Speed, SSR has an extra functionality of SSR CODE which identifies a plane uniquely in a control region & Altitude of the plane. The SSR sends out of a series of pulses to the transponder on the plane having a pulse width of 8µs for identification of the SSR CODE and of 21µs for knowing the height of the plane. And the reply from the transponder is in 3 kinds of modes: MODE A, MODE C & MODE S which are explained as under: MODE A The transponder sends out 12 pulses of 8µs pulse-width explained as under:

Weights given : C1 A1 B1 D1 ....... = 20 C2 A2 B2 D2 ....... = 21 C4 A4 B4 D4 ....... = 22 for eg: If all the pulses are available

Code Generated : C1+C2 +C4 A1+A2 +A4 B1+B2 +B4 D1+D2 +D4

C 7

A 7

B 7

D 7

In a control region 212 codes are possible. =>4096 aircrafts can be handled at a time.

24

INNOVATIVE SPARKS IN YOUR 'GRAY'???

MODE C Unlike MODE A, D1 is absent out of 12 pulses. So 211 combinations are possible => 2048 gray codes can be assigned to height levels of 100 feet each. MODE S MODE S will be used in the future in the same way as MODE A is used presently. For now only Data communication facilities are achieved through this mode. Unlike MODE A, minimum 56 pulses and maximum 112 pulses are used. This implies that 256 to 2112 aircrafts i.e. Millions of aircrafts can be handled in a control region.

Cloud Computing
Future of Internet based computing
Cloud Computing is an emerging computing technology that uses the internet and central remote servers to maintain data and applications. Cloud computing allows consumers and businesses to use applications without installation and access their personal files at any computer with internet access.This technology allows for much more efficient computing by centralizing storage, memory, processing and bandwidth. Cloud computing is broken down into three segments: 'applications', 'platforms' and 'infrastructure'. Each segment serves a different purpose and offers different products for businesses and individuals around the world. It is an internet based computing, whereby shared resource(s), software(s) and information is/are provided to computers and other devices on-demand, like a public utility. The term 'Cloud' is used as a metaphor for the Internet, based on the cloud drawing used in the past to represent the telephone network, and later to depict the Internet in computer network diagrams as an abstraction of the underlying infrastructure it represents. Typical cloud computing providers deliver common business applications online which are accessed from a web browser, while the software and data are stored on servers. As a metaphor for the Internet, 'the Cloud' is a familiar cliché, but when combined with 'computing' the meaning gets bigger and fuzzier. Some analysts and vendors define cloud computing narrowly as 'an updated version of utility computing'. Cloud computing customers do not own the physical infrastructure, instead avoiding capital expenditure by renting usage from a third-party provider. They consume resources as a service and pay only for resources that they use. Many cloud-computing offerings employ the utility computing model, which is analogous to how traditional utility services (such as electricity) are consumed, whereas others bill on a subscription basis. Sharing 'perishable and intangible' computing power among multiple tenants can improve utilization rates, as servers are not unnecessarily left idle (which can reduce costs significantly while increasing the speed of application development). In this approach, overall computer usage rises dramatically, as customers do not have to engineer for peak load limits. In addition, 'increased high-speed bandwidth' makes it possible to receive the same response times from centralized infrastructure at other sites. Recently, an Aberdeen Group study found that disciplined companies achieved on average an 18% reduction in their IT budget from cloud computing and a 16% reduction in data center power costs. - Mukul Mohan Rafiz

TIPS AND TRICKS
Since Microsoft has launched its most awaited OS version till now, ‘WINDOWS 7’, which has been a great success. Smoothly running version of windows has some very special features too. Lets discuss a few here.... Explore God Mode to try this out, create a new folder and rename it to: The first part, "Everything" will be the folder name, and can be whatever you want: "Super Control Panel", "Advanced", "God Mode" if you prefer. The extension, ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C, must be entered exactly as it is here, though, including the curly brackets.When you press [Enter] this part of the name will disappear, and doubleclicking the new folder will display shortcuts to functions in the Action Center, the Network and Sharing Center, Power options, troubleshooting tools, user accounts and others - more than 260 options in total. Problem Steps Recorder As the local PC guru you're probably very used to friends and family asking for help with their computer problems, yet having no idea how to clearly describe what's going on. It's frustrating, but Microsoft feels your pain, and Windows 7 will include an excellent new solution in the Problem Steps Recorder. When any app starts misbehaving under Windows 7 then all your friends need do is click Start, type ‘PSR’ and press Enter, then click Start Record. If they then work through whatever they're doing then the Problem Steps Recorder will record every click and key press, take screen grabs, and package everything up into a single zipped HTML file when they're finished, ready for emailing to you. It's quick, easy and effective, and will save you hours of troubleshooting time. RSS-powered wallpaper And if a slideshow based on your standard wallpaper isn't enough, then you can always create a theme that extracts images from an RSS feed. For example, Long Zheng has created a few sample themes to illustrate how it works. Jamie Thompson takes this even further, with a theme that always displays the latest BBC news and weather on your desktop. And make use of a quick and easy tutorial showing how RSS can get you those gorgeous Bing photographs as your wallpaper. Or you can watch our custom theme video tutorial.

Engineering?? It Happens...
4THYEAR SENIOR SPEAKS…. Well well well !!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh my god that's not at all well….I just dropped myself on floor…this broken pavement, and my vision concentrating on college building. Does this college end somewhere? I can see hills in the college. Oh!! That's outside! So we are in mining and crushing zone!!! What place is this man? Moon? Forget it! I shall move further…..” counseling in library” someone said. “Library….!!! Will have to visit the worst place on earth”, I thought. But now I know I was wrong. Anyways….Time passed……. C'mon start preparing for exams, dad said…”What's that”, I wondered. Semester broke in from somewhere, don't know how. I tried all the things to prevent it from happening. Paper asked.. evaluate the efficiency of carnot cycle… I answered proudly, “Evaluated”. What great blunders I used to make…….. Guess what, I was honoured and asked to please give that exam once again.. well I didn't want to repeat my previous answers …. So I just told them all the stuff in book that seemed to be useless for me at that time. Ah..!!! 2nd year came finally… I mean I was in 2nd year but some final year students were my friends too.. and then, university fest-'UTSAV' organized.. I worked hard, danced even harder with final year students… but forgot to make certi's. 2nd year sounds like I gained something from first year….. yes surely I did. I gained 10kgs.At this point I would like to share one interesting thing….if you run after birds they fly...but if you sit still, they come close to you…so I decided to sit in the canteen all day… and not run after the books, what stupidity ……..!!! Actually I'm very good at implementing morals in my life. 3rd year came… they said u can't sit in canteen in first lecture.“Oh my god!!! How do u expect a student not to miss his first lecture… the birds are there, the burger is fresh, you get the first tea from the clean pan”, I wondered. “This is injustice… I'll have to have a 2 hours old burger..…man!! I don't believe this”, I cribbed. But then I thought, ”where will the 1st lecture studies go??” Rather, they should have made an alternative decision…. like sending a vendor in class… I can study with concentration when I have tea and a fresh burger in my hand. And let me tell you, I always offer tea to my teachers. But some call it buttering. I don't understand how can “tea-ing” do “buttering”. Then a concept of bio came in my mind... don't miss it. Butter is made from milk when you turn milk to curd and curd to chaach (butter milk). So when u make tea you put milk in it and canteens usually have spoilt milk, so curd makes tea…we also add water to it so offering tea is buttering. Yaah !! I know it's a big invention.That's why you are reading it today in this magazine, called LOGIX. 4th year came….volcano of tension erupted everywhere. I saw some people turning pages of books for CAT… I tried a lot to explain them that the book is for cats but they kept on saying that its for MBA. CAT to MBA… It doesn't even sound similar. Some were running here and there for internals, they said its their last year and they need to increase the percentage. 'INTERNALS' means something inside. We have stomach inside and what's inside that? Oh! My god.. samosa. So simple answer… I ran to canteen and had three samose. My weight was now something above 90. So my internals were maximum. I was happy again.Wait I'm not happy, happy is name of my friend and he's merely 60 kgs… very weak student.. I must say.. not even having one extra exam, I give at least 2 or three every sem…but its not a good habit , I know. Then came the 4th year project …ahaa!!! Now something new has come. Can we make a machine which digs earth and makes samose side by side… they said it's unrealistic.. great minds are always ignored…. Then I thought and thought and I went to sleep… in dreams came Einstein, I gave him samosa.. he gave me an idea and said you are lucky that I came.. if Newton had come samosa couldn't have done anything cause he eats only apples. But the idea as you know was from Einstein was very expensive to make. So finally I went to a tree, put samosa at top and kicked the trunk. Samosa fell on my head and I started shouting “Eureka Eureka”. Synonym for But somehow, I kept my samosa aside and completed my project. CLABBERED Hey..!! I tell you one thing, don't try and copy my steps or what I did in my college life… I have got copy right. MILK?? And u won't even get chance to write in the magazine if you are not an event head like me.

WAKE UP MOHAN
It's a ‘wake up Mohan’ call form the ‘Logix’ group to all of us..... Under the article there is a brief discussion of 'something', that is everything we are missing and we always think our college is lacking in.Actually the only thing that we lack is 'the right attitude' and the 'inner authority to take the necessary steps'. Here is the glimpse of what is happening around… Infosys Technologies Ltd. launched Campus Connect; an industry-academia partnership initiative in May 2004, with 60 colleges.The initiative was aimed at deepening the industry-academia bonds and building a strong foundation for both academics and growing IT industry. This nationwide initiative is a great success. It focuses on creating industry-ready IT professionals, by aligning engineering talents with the need of the industry. Campus Connect is present where Infosys has a presence, be it India, China, Malaysia or Mexico. It partnered with 500 colleges in their pursuit of excellence. They conduct workshops and seminars in college to give an industry perspective, they publish Infosys courseware in Campus Connect portal, which is used by Infosys to prepare new recruits to global industry-ready standards & they share their bank of industry projects and case studies with their partner colleges. They have recently launched Aspiration 2020- a contest series to create alternate channels for students. In this programming contest, an effective english program for both students and faculty are pipelined.They offer student-project bank to provide simple software project definitions suited for pre-final/final year engineering project work. They offer industrial visits to demystify the image of business enterprises.

They also Sponsor for research paper presentation to encourage faculty and students to enhance their learning in the field of computer science & selected presentations are given financial assistance. To summarize, they make healthy and professional relationships. An initiative was also made by our college in this regard but was not a great success. Everybody asks why less number of student were recruited in Infosys. The main reason was the absence of ‘Campus Connect’. Companies like Infosys aim at multi talented students. They never aim at the university toppers and offer ‘Campus Connect’ to only those colleges, which can offer them students with innovative sparks in their gray and all these things are possible with a culture in our college. All the hidden talents in our college are unexplored which need a platform to enhance their capabilities. And this is the aim of this magazine. So go Green with Logix........... We will reveal some more facts about “Campus Connect” and will add some courseware they offer in other colleges.
A fine piece of work???

LAST WORDS
As the last words from Logix Team, it is requested to all the students to be synchronized with the changes in the modern world & 'Feel the force' to pierce through the difficulties. Be different and hear what your heart says. Don’t be a 'leaf in the flowing water', choose your own flow, change your own perception & frame your own definition of success. Success comes through self realization and group efforts. So the need of the hour is to make yourself ready for what you are. And we really thank all the readers for making our first edition a success!! Since creations are refined with time, we would certainly present even a better piece of work in the next edition. Your suggestions are sincerely accepted! So be a part of it and stay tuned......
