Pidgin-Facebook plugin

After I got my gtalk enabled on my Pidgin, now that I'm thinking of whether somebody already did something on Facebook. Yeah it's there!


Work on multiplatform.. since I'm working on Ubuntu now, .deb worked just fine:

dpkg -i pidgin-facebookchat-1.35.deb
Selecting previously deselected package pidgin-facebookchat.
(Reading database ... 179380 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking pidgin-facebookchat (from pidgin-facebookchat-1.35.deb) ...
Setting up pidgin-facebookchat (1.35) ...

Hi Najmi,

The best way to figure out if I'd like to have you as a PhD student, and if you'd like to have me as your advisor, would be to meet and talk. We can do that once you start USC in Fall. I looked over your CV and papers you sent. This is nice work for BSc degree. What you want to do during your MS and PhD is to expand on the research part. Best way to do this, and also to improve writing style and language, is to read a lot of research papers so that would be my first suggestion. Look at top security conferences such as USENIX, CCS or security papers at networking conferences SIGCOMM, Infocom, NDSS and NSDI.

The length of the study depends on both your topic and your work. You usually are ready to graduate once you had 3-5 papers from your topic published at good conferences. Publishing takes time and that's the major source that defines when one can graduate. That, and finishing the work on the topic - but since you need to finish the work anyways…
