The art of Practical Exams...

Alsalam alikom wa ra7mat Allah w abarakatoh

Practical Exams are Art, that's what FCIS Doctors proved recently and I recommend IEEE & ACM to publish this in papers...

I'm in the 4th year (In Shaa Allah Graduation Year), so I passed 6 semesters (and In Shaa Allah about to pass the 7th) at the end of each of them, there were practical exams in which doctors differ... Let me tell u what happened this semester (the 7th) maybe in a later post I'll speak about the 6 past-semesters...

Last Saturday we had an exam in a new-interesting subject that is a research department all over the globe. this sounds nice so far... the materials are taken from Masters that are discussed in our faculty which is good too...

But, let's come to the practical exam...
We were supposed to deliver a package that will be tested on certain Input file provided by the doctor, and u r asked to display certain things... so if u display it right (compared to a judge-output data ;) ) then u pass, if not, u fail and a nice assistant comes and trys to encourage u to do any modification in the code to make it work...

Second part of the exam is an Oral exam, u go and sit beside the Professor who then starts to ask u whatever he wants.. some were asked 1 question and others (like me :D) were asked 5 questions... it all depends on him...
El mohem, I was the first one to finish the practical part... so I was the first one to take the first Shock of the Oral Exam... I sat beside the professor to show him on the laptop a bonus thing we made in the package... actually there were two things, the first he accepted, the second he didn't like :D... ok it's his opinion anyway...

After that he started asking me... as I told u 5 questions, I replied to the first 3 of them, and didn't manage to get what he wants as a reply for the remaining 2 questions...

I was so angry while leaving the Room... that I didn't even wait my friends to finish to check what did they do... I didn't like anybody to c me angry....

Later, a colleague called me to tell me about another exam, and she also told me that she heared the professor saying to one of my friends "eb2o 7'allo el ACM yenfa3ko" this statement is what made me write this post and is why I really dislike the personality of this Professor... despite having gr8 working-brain and a lot of info, I just don't know why he acts like this....

C u later everybody...

Alsalam alikom wa ra7mat Allah wa barakatoh

Comments

  1. I'm at work now but I couldn't stop myself from commenting.
    eb2o 7'allo el ACM yenfa3ko !! eh da !!
    I really hate these ppl elly bey7awlo yeday2o el wa7ed fel 7aga elly bey7ebbaha (we kwayes feeha kaman). What would happen if u were weak and just gave up doing what u r good at just becuz of a selly comment like this.

    U know, this reminds me of something we sometimes do. When u see a muslim masalan who is trying to be better but still makes mistakes. and some1 tells him (y3ny betsally we bete3mel kaza!!), some ppl may just stop what they r doing becuz it's being a source of annoying :S :S. Instead of encouraging them to do better, u r blaming them for being good !!

    bgd i hate this :S.

    sorry for the long comment, but it really bothers me.

Exploiting Double Free Vulnerabilities...

Alsalam alikom wa ra7mat Allah wa barakatoh



Huh!! that's what I said when I first saw that title... but let me explain...


Double Free means that you try to free a pointer two times (which is logically can't work).
Actually windows SP2 and later (even Vista) this can be done (in somehow) and can actually corrupt the heap (Vista will shout at your face if u did) and that can make you able to use and browse the heap as you want..

Facts to know about how Windows frees your pointers:
- There is something called Lookaside buffer (fast access, small size) and another thing is FreeList(slower access, the whole memory).
- Chunk is an object of the DataStructure that holds mainly 2 things: pointer to where the next free Chunk is and pointer to the previous free one (think about it like a node in a linked list)
- The first 4 bytes of the Chunk is the BLink (BackLink) and the second 4 bytes is the FLink
- delete ptr1;
delete ptr2;
Windows takes your Chunk (for ptr1) and puts it in the Lookaside s…

Windows7 adds Math Input Panel

Alsalam alikom wa ra7mat Allah wa barakatoh…I was reading a windows team post about Input Panels improvements in Windows7 [here]. When at the end I saw a very interesting –intuitive if you wish- new thing… which is, as you guessed, the Math Input Panel…Yes, that crappy font is mine… I “drew” that by mouse as I don’t have a tablet pen/pc.You can then paste it directly into word and it’ll recognize it as an editable equation…During my tests, the output panel (the top part) hanged, but I liked that the drawing panel was still responsive and I could still write/erase… till the top one started to respond again…One other thing to know, after you click Insert (that button down there) it copies the equation in MathML [Wikipedia link] format.. which is a standard way of representing equations and hence any application that recognizes the format can insert it not as an image but as a nice editable equation…If you think it recognized something wrong, you can click “Select and Correct” then draw …

Visual Studio 2008 Not saving changes or project properties?

Alsalam alikom wa ra7mat Allah wa barakatoh (Peace upon you)I’ve recently ran into problems with VS 2008. Summarized here:When you try to edit the project properties (specially C++ projects) you are faced with a little nice message saying “Exception from HRESULT: 0xF9F0F308”. Sometimes when you are editing a file (specially large ones), VS doesn’t recognize you’ve made changes (ie doesn’t display that ‘*’ in the files tabs) hence, when you save, nothing actually gets saved. For those 2 problems, a friend explained the problem and a work around (till they officially release a fix)…Open up a Visual Studio 2008 Command Prompt Run cd "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE" Make a backup copy of devenv.exe in case something does not work right.
ie. copy devenv.exe devenv.exe.bak Run editbin /largeaddressaware:no devenv.exe Happy VSing… :)
