JetBrains' Products Now Free For (Nepali) Students

A little late in sharing this wonderful news. If you don't know yet, JetBrains, the developer of awesome IDEs like IntelliJ IDEA and PhpStorm have made their products free for students. And guess what? This is unlike other free-for-students offer. Most of the free-for-students discounts are limited to students of US university and colleges only. The way to check whether a person claiming to be a student to avail these sorts of discounts is in fact a student or not, is to make him use his university provided email address.

How to login to a website via Google Script?

Whenever I have to accomplish something these days (in terms of programming that is), the language that I turn to at first is Google Script. I have gotten so used to it, and its interface that I prefer it over any other language, or services. The added bonus of using it is that you can run the script regularly by setting up a timer. No need to meddle with cronjobs and what-not on your server.

How To Resize and Create LVM Partitions on Ubuntu?

Too frequent BSODs and 'display driver not detected' messages were turning me insane. I decided to install Ubuntu via WUBI, but although the pain slightly decreased, the true potential of linux was still shrouded by Windows. I had been contemplating on completely formatting and installing Linux, and about a week ago, I finally did it. With just 1 Gb of RAM and a P4 processor, I thought Xubuntu would be the way to go - and it seems that I was right.

Grab Certain Texts From Gmail via Google Spreadsheet (Script)

I had worked on this a few weeks back, and without any prior knowledge of using GmailApp call on Google Spreadsheet, I had to struggle for a while to get it working. The code to do this is fairly simple and can be understood by just about anyone. The problem I was trying to solve was also fairly simple. First, some background : there's a new task initiated by my college, although as ridiculous as it might sound to you, a student (based on the order of the roll number) has to send an email blast each day to other students. The email blast should contain a word, it's meaning, example of its usage etc. There's a certain format that needs to be followed, and what I wanted to do was grab just the words within the email and store them so that at some point, I'd have a database full of every words that have ever been sent. (Not really my idea, though.)
