In the abysmal depths where the mind pines ;
For the delight of knowledge without which it dies.
The unreachable truth, unhindered, incessantly shines
Amidst the plethora of impeccable lies.
Like the ocean that keeps springing
The energy intense diminishes not for anything.
The cold matter flows, vaporizes for drinking
And keeps coming back and stays unlike anything.
Like matter sensed, occupying its very space,
Unable to subtract blanks, the implicit math is born without harm.
Destruction and creation ; The divine twin guardion stays
And all that is gone, always keeps coming back in another form.
Nothing specific as such but i was just curious on something that happened recently while downloading a huge file from a site.
Here goes …
Basically, i was downloading a video file of size 80MB when my system had something about 100MB left in the hard
disk. I felt it was fair enough to store the file for now, view the video and
then delete it to reclaim the disk space.
But here comes the catch. When i finished downloading the huge file, the system had actually downloaded it to a temporary internet directory and then tried to copy it to the destination directory which was specified. Now why would it want to do that ??
Doing something like that would require 2 times the size of the file downloaded to be present in the hard disk. Why impart such a constraint ??? All it needs to do is to download it directly onto the destination directory. Or what could have been done is to download the file to the temporary directory and then move it, not copy to the destination directory. We know that copying a file takes much longer a time when compared to moving a file, if the destination is in the same disk. So why copy ?? But the actual implementation does neither ! Why so ?
Are there any specific security or any other implications for doing the implementation the way it has been done now ?? Any ideas ?
The long awaited India Tour is finally happening !!!
Wahoo … I’m going to start the trip from here, Bangalore. Will be leaving from here to Mangalore, hopefully and roam around like a crazy haggard with nothing to lose and nothing in mind !
The plan is to roam around without a plan 😉
The route as of now is Bangalore->Mangalore->Pune->Bombay->Surat->Jaisalmer->Jaipur->Agra->Delhi…. The whole thing is still fragile and for all i know, i might stay in Goa for 10 days and come back but hey lets not get anymore ideas.
So for another 10 days, i’ll be completely busy. Its going to be great and i havent done something like this for a long time ! What cometh ahead, I shall face and enjoy 🙂
