I put together this script called csvify_fortinet_logs in order to convert the space separated format of Fortinet Router’s Fortiguard WebFilterLog to a more widely used and favorable for analysis format, CSV. I wanted to analyse the web filter log of the router, but could not use it as an input to pandas, so had to code this.
I am kind of changing the way I do things here on the blog, by introducing new categories, and by maybe letting go some of the categories. Its been over 5 years, and I feel that I need to make some changes now.
SORRY THIS NO LONGER WORKS. Import.io REMOVED THEIR FREE PLAN AND I JUST COULDN’T PAY TO KEEP THIS RUNNING.
Hi guys, its been a long time. I am tired of making empty promises (regarding posting regularly) so, let me not do it again. While I was beginning my data-science journey, I tried to collect as many sources for Nepali datasets as possible, and the following is the listing of the same. The problem is most of these datasets are in PDF (most are in a booklet), so you’d have to use some extraction utilities such as Tabula to convert it into a CSV or workable file format.
Hi guys, it’s been a while. I have been busy with my studies. I will try my best to continue updating the blog regularly (i.e at least 2-3 posts a week) but please don’t hold me to it.
I recently came across this promotion, and thought I’d share it here; it has been a while since I last posted about any freebies (or any post for that matter.)
Black Friday and Cyber Monday are over (and apparently Green Monday too). On these two days, western stores offer huge discounts on products. I was looking to make some purchase, but could not find a deal with free International shipping. Buying from stores, mostly those that are based on western countries, would cost you almost twice the actual amount just for sending the shipment. Some sites don’t even offer paid International shipping, in which case, you have to use a reship service and that would cost you lots of dough.
I spent the last two days scanning photos from my family albums (about 900 photos). Scanning each photos individually will take lots of time, however not any further processing is needed. When you scan multiple images at once, you need to crop and straighten each photo from a single page you scanned.
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.
Boom Boom Boom! is a webapp for your party.
What does it do?
Boom Boom Boom! throws up animations, text photos, graphics and different effects. You can use your mobile or keyboard to control it, or you can play the music and let the graphics change on its own.
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.
LiveReload is a handy tool for web-developers. Do you not use Dreamweaver alternatives for linux, or any other web development tools? If you make use of text editors to code and web browsers to preview the result, then you must be tired of constantly hitting the save button on your text editor as well as that reload button on your web browser.
