Traffic habbits in Egypt

Alsalam alikom wa ra7mat Allah wa barakatoh

Of course almost everybody used a car one day to go somewhere, whether you were driving or not.. you must have seen this:

You are driving on 60km/hr and someone crossing the street on the slowest possible speed he can, then, he turns his head, look at your eyes (if you are the driver) then just continue his way on the same boring speed... like if he is saying "huh, you will never try to hit me..."... what is that he is doing!!!

At first, when I started to drive, I was just getting mad at them... and one of those times, I stopped the car, and shouted at that man... he turned over and said "Oh, sorry, didn't notice" DIDN'T NOTICE!!!!

I believe this problem is not only about traffic... I mean, the main source of this strange actions is that bad mood people are living now, depression if I can call it so... they are not feeling excited about anything... (I'm not referring to those who are excited about their football team winning or whatever) but you know that excitement about the future, you want to be in a better position after a few months, you want to have a company within few year, you want to go to the paradise when you die... without that excitement, we are living like mm animals that all what they care about is what to eat today, where to sleep... that's it.. maybe animals are doing something better, they are repeating Allah names thousands of times per day...

We can change this.... let's plan for it:
You don't like what is happening to your nation ?
I guess you also don't like what is happening to your country?
What about your family?
What about yourself? are you satisfied about yourself?

It's easier to do it backwards than trying to suddenly change the universe!!
Start by yourself, do find a goal for your life, and don't do like those who say "Oh, of course I've a big goal for my life, I want to go to the paradise". Ask them one question "Do you have it written somewhere?", I can assure you, you will find 95% of them will say "No."....
A written goal is something will you will work for, your mind will always remember it before doing any action...

Of course everybody knows about Sony's Mission "Change the world opinion about Jabanise electronics"... every meeting they hold, they write this mission on a whiteboard, and before anybody suggests anything, he look back to the whiteboard to confirm that he's on the right way...

Think of a goal, write it down, work for it...
Maybe one day, we will find people hurrying up a little bit !!

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… :)
