Ubuntu: Problem installing flash player

Problem installing flash player
Recently, I installed ubuntu updates and my browser asked me for flash player, which was previously installed. i tried to install using the regular command
sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer
But, it says
flashplugin-installer is already the newest version
Finally, I found the workaround. Previous installation has to removed first (which anyway is not working)
Run the following commands :
sudo apt-get purge flashplugin-installer
sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer
Viola!! It works now.

Java: Use BigInteger in for-loop

In my previous post , I mentioned a way to handle large integers by using BigInteger. Now I'm going to provide a very important usage of it. We often use for-loop. So here is the way to use it: Ordinary integers: for(int i = 1; i <= n; i++) {  //Task to do } BigInteger: for (BigInteger bi = BigInteger.valueOf(1);                 bi.compareTo(n) <= 0;                 bi = bi.add(BigInteger.ONE)) { //Task to do } here n is a BigInteger variable.
