    Hi, I came across an Virtual Box error Failed to load VMMR0.r0 (VERR_SUPLIB_WORLD_WRITABLE). It took a lot of time to find out the solution for it.
    The solution was :
    sudo chmod o-w /usr

    If any come across the same error please do remember the solution 🙂

    Applied for job at Automattic ( http://automattic.com/work-with-us/code-wrangler/ ) . I think those in the final year can apply for it. Knowledge in PHP is recommanded and those who have experience in using WordPress will have preference.

      Hope you convinced the participants. I think they will be frustrated. So, for their relief, maybe we can arrange for a skype session with Shankar.

    Finished working on the final InCTF ’12 web service 🙂 Could implement MVC architectural model using object oriented concepts in PHP 🙂 It is really awesome to work with PHP. But found it really difficult to write from the scratch after using web frameworks like Django.

    For those students who are learning PHP it is very important that you know arrays very well. So make sure that you learn it properly. http://oreilly.com/catalog/progphp/chapter/ch05.html this chapter will give you a well defined idea about arrays in PHP. Please do read this.

      Cool man!! Hope you guys chuck out the PPP this year in the Hack days. 😀

      • bithin 8:15 am on February 28, 2012 Permalink | Reply

        I think it would take years of practice. Team PPP is really good. They had started from the first year itself and we are too late to begin with. Long way to go 🙂

          Haha!! Who knows..!! Team B!0$ could finally rewrite the PPP..!!
