Last day at sun


At the last day of my first innings at Sun - 6 years and 3 months after I joined right out of college.
From the word go, I got the opportunity to work with some really brilliant engineers on really cool ideas, technologies & products - and that was one thing which continued to be so throughout my career here.

I am joining Yahoo! research engineering in Bangalore on monday ...
I can be reached at

Quake 4 and books

Got Quake 4 last weekend .... as soon as it was available here in Bangalore : but have not yet been able to play the game sadly :-(
My computer (with the rest of the stuff) is still stuck at Bombay and so I guess it will be another loooong week before I can get down and dirty with the game.
In case you are interested , you can play it in linux (more info here).... saw it in action on my friend's comp yesterday.

While I wait for my computer to arrive , I have gone back to my old habit of reading - I used to be an avid reader until I got introduced to programming (and the "pressures" of getting into an engineering college).
So in the past 3 weeks I managed to finish about two dozen books .... nothing else left to do after getting back home ;-)
\* lot of them novel's of the eighth doctor from the Doctor Who series , - ya ya , I am a geek :-P (never seen the tv series yet funnily !)
\* a couple of Asimov's , - as usual enjoyable :-D
\* a book by Abhijit Bhaduri called Mediocre But Arrogant (for MBA) - entertaining.
\* To Kill a Mocking Bird , by Harper Lee - really touching , no wonder it won a Pulitzer !

Also waiting for Civ 4 to get released here before I can get it ... really enjoyed Civ 3 , this should be fun.

And so I wait .....

Who am I

I nearly forgot about this blog ... until now ! So , first things first - an introduction of who I am and what I do.

I am Mridul Muralidharan , currently in the Instant Messaging and Presence project as a developer for the past 6+ months or so.
The product that comes out is Sun Java System Instant Messaging.
If this strikes a bell , it is 'cos the netbeans collab module is based on our product :-)
I am mainly focussed on HTTP suppport and security among other things.

Before joining this team , I was with Sun Java Studio Enterprise team for about an year and a half.
And before that , in Sun Java System Portal Server Secure Remote Access for 2+ years ...

So , been in Sun for about 4+ years now ... and it has been a blast throughout !

What to expect from this blog ?
Hmm , let me see ...

Stuff from work.
Like how to use the product , the api , etc more effectively and efficiently , caveats , gotchas , etc.

Stuff about work ...
Interesting problems solved / encountered , anecdotes , etc.

Stuff which has nothing to do with work :-)
Things I do in my free time - like chess , netbeans (I am a closet netbeans hacker) , opentools and other small projects I dabble in.

Feel free to post comments/queries ... and I will respond/will try to get resolution for them.
