Victor's Blog about the Web, Security and Life

The web for me is a hobby where standards and best practices are daily bread. Security is a concern that everybody must be aware of its details for IT in general, and the web in particular, to be a safer place. My life, on the other hand, is that of a regular Lebanese citizen where politics and social issues are discussed on a daily basis. I hope you enjoy reading my blog and make sure to drop me a comment about any topic you find interesting.

I was having an interesting discussion yesterday about web programming languages with a friend of mine during which we tackled various programming languages (PHP, Java, VB and C#) and their competitive nature for web programming. I found it very useful to place a summary (yet a detailed one) about this topic due to the interestingly arguable nature of this topic...

Two of my students, namely Elie Khoury and Wissam Salameh, implemented a virtual Ecosystem implementation that simulates life in an aquatic system including Sharks, Fish and Plants. The implementation is so beautiful that it allows any application user to test the proper settings required for an aquatic to avoid extinction or to simply simulate the life in such a medium for research purposes.

Last Friday, the NDP team competed against GM&A's team in Paintball. The score was a stunning loss for the NDP team. Yup! It was a stunning 5 for GM&A against a stunning ZERO (0) for the NDP team. No wonder the score was as such especially that the first phrase that we heard when we arrived from one of GM&A's members was: "Why do we need to play 90 minutes? All Beirut needed 90 minutes!!!" No comment on this though lol

Hard luck guys for this time and better luck for next time!

Pictures from the event can be found here.

Today, I received an email from a colleague at NDU entitled "Jesus is the Reason for the Season".

The email, like many other emails that you receive around Christmas, is centered around the Christmas spirit.

What really got me about this email is that it was the first email that I read trying to get back the Christmas Spirit from Santa to Jesus.

I am sharing this email here. I hope you like it and, better of, use it and send it to friends ;)
