IComparable Interface to sort objects

Was trying Interfaces in .Net . Had a necessity to sort a set of Objects based on a criteria. The IComparable interface comes to the rescue. You can inherit the ICompable interface like this

public class ClassName: IComparable

private string m_Name;

public int Length = 0;

public string Name {

get { return m_Name; }

set { m_Name = value; }


I need to add a CompareTo method also in the class.

public int CompareTo (object obj) {

ClassName cls= (ClassName) obj;

return this.Name.CompareTo (ClassName) .Name);


Now I can use a Array.Sort method on the Array of objects based on the criteria Name.

XML with PHP4

I major upgrade is scheduled for one of my projects. Most of you will know which one..

I have been avoiding XML till now but this time round I cant escape without using the same..

I know a bit of XML but using it with PHP is what is puzzling me. PHP5 has built in XML support but PHP4 not much.

Need to use some 3rd party classes I believe.

Building the new system is going to take some considerable time for sure, but its worth the effort.

WordPress spikes server load and site down

This site varunkrish.com was down due to wordpress spiking the server load.

Finally its back up again.

Hosts in India are bad.. suspended my account without even informing me.

WTF? I paid them for a bunch of sites and they dont even have the courtesy to inform me before taking the site down.

I had to submit a bunch of freakin tickets to get the problem resolved.
