    See My Simple Image Thumbnailer

    June 30th, 2007

    Last week when I noticed the MYRUET members could not upload proper sized image to their profile page, I prepared a simple image thumbnailer. I donno if it helped them a lot but I noticed few members used it. Here is the demo:


    It is very simple one to prepare. It manipulates the would-be scale size using this formula:


    function imageScale($image, $newWidth, $newHeight)

    if(!$size = @getimagesize($image))
    die("Unable to get info on image $image");

    $ratio = ($size[0] / $size[1]);

    if($newWidth == -1)
    $ret[1] = $newHeight;
    $ret[0] = round(($newHeight * $ratio));
    else if($newHeight == -1)
    $ret[0] = $newWidth;
    $ret[1] = round(($newWidth / $ratio));

    die("Scale Error");

    return $ret;


    Please check the thumbnailer and let me know if some changes can make this more strong.

    Best regards.


    Grand Opening of MYRUET Community Website (Beta Version)

    June 24th, 2007

    Today we (Lemon, Arif & Me) released a beta version of MYRUET (http://www.myruet.com). MYRUET is the community website aimed for all ex and current students of Rajshahi University of Engineering & Technology (RUET), Bangladesh. We released this version as a testing version. Upon members’ feedbacks on testing this website, we will change/modify the interface, functionalities & fix bugs. We would like to receive suggestions from the members who joined and tested.

    We were targetting to launch this community website from many months. But everyone was busy with works. Finally we seated together, managed time and after few days’ hard work we got an initial version to release.

    MYRUET is available in four domains:

    – www.myruet.com
    – www.myruet.net
    – www.myruet.org
    – www.myruet.info

    [All domains contain same contents.]

    We started thinking about this website one year back and booked the domains later. But it took almost one year to prepare a version. Lemon and Arif did a lot on this website. I enjoyed working with them.

    If you are an ex OR current students of RUET, please join MYRUET and start testing to help us improve the usability & quality of this site.

    Please feel free to send me your suggestions on the current version.

    Best regards.


    Easy Way to Install FFMPEG with PHP

    June 15th, 2007

    Audio/Video streaming is very popular today. Recently I have worked on such streaming for one of my projects. My server OS is Fedora Core 6. I found a great help to install FFMPEG (with PHP) that I want to share:


    I followed it line by line and got FFMPEG done. Obviously you will face some problems (depending on your OS and current status of the server). I had to do a few configuration stuffs that my server required during the installation.

    I hope you will find the above link as a great help when needed.
