Alan Rickman is undoubtedly one of the greatest actors I will ever work with. He is also, one of the loyalest and most supportive people I've ever met in the film industry. He was so encouraging of me both on set and in the years post-Potter. I'm pretty sure he came and saw everything I ever did on stage both in London and New York. He didn't have to do that. I know other people who've been friends with him for much much longer than I have and they all say "if you call Alan, it doesn't matter where in the world he is or how busy he is with what he's doing, he'll get back to you within a day".

People create perceptions of actors based on the parts they played so it might surprise some people to learn that contrary to some of the sterner(or downright scary) characters he played, Alan was extremely kind, generous, self-deprecating and funny. And certain things obviously became even funnier when delivered in his unmistakable double-bass.

As an actor he was one of the first of the adults on Potter to treat me like a peer rather than a child. Working with him at such a formative age was incredibly important and I will carry the lessons he taught me for the rest of my life and career. Film sets and theatre stages are all far poorer for the loss of this great actor and man.

Goodbye Google+ Photos, hello +Google Photos!

In May, we launched Google Photos as the home for all your photos and videos. With Google Photos you can store unlimited high quality photos and videos for free, find photos fast, and see them organized by what matters to you. Plus, you can bring moments to life and share anywhere with anyone.

In an effort to ensure everyone has the best photos experience we can deliver, on August 1st we’ll start to shut down Google+ Photos -- initially on Android, and soon thereafter on the Web and iOS.

If you’re still using Google+ Photos, now is a great time to make the switch. You may have seen a prompt in Google+ Photos on Android with a link to download the new Google Photos. Don’t worry, all your photos and videos will still be saved and available after you switch to the new, stand-alone Google Photos app. With the new app you’ll still be able to backup, edit, and share your photos and videos, with unlimited storage, automatic organization, and more.

Download the new Google Photos today for uninterrupted access to all your photos, videos and albums.  If you don’t update to the new Google Photos, Google+ Photos on Android will soon stop working, but your photos and videos will still remain safely stored and available via or for export using Google Takeout.

Get the Google Photos app for Android

This is how I got personal details of every student of College of Technology...( Click the  link to goto the site -   check info against IDs )

Checking my profile at , i came across this link,

The link is used for extracting the registration card (every sem),, where USER=44969 is my college id,
This got my attention,,, as the link to my registration card is a [DOT]asp script with GET method used for extracting info...

so, if i changed the URL (session var USER) with any other valid College id, i can get respective registration form (or his/her details)...

so here we go...

i wrote a PHP script to download the page, by increment-ing a variable from 42332(starting id) to 45408(end id) and using the URL to download the page. Extracting and Storing the student info part in the database was the next part. Here is the script->

I extracted only the student details, not his/her advisers name or registration date(something least of my concerns)

I saved it to my website  and wrote a script to extract info corresponding to any College id...

What is most disturbing is that the university(GBPUAT of course) even after so many years,,, has not bothered to improve their site security. well ab kar bhi kya sakte he....

RIP Pantngr...
