Well, it certainly seems that the Apple is finally ripe. Apple Computer released a security patch for the vaunted & secure Mac OS-X which fixes 15 security flaws which when exploited by a good lad, can crash Apache webserver running on it or can allow good guys run software remotely through the perfect Safari browser, among other good things.Read More
Well, I can’t think of even the Harry Potter website at Warner Bros. website. Its just too slow & I never found any useful info on there, just a load of crap. 😡Read More
As I posted in my previous post, Veerle was going on with his series of an excellent tutorial on designing a CSS based template. Yesterday, he published the 8th & final part of the series, from which I guess every reader should benefit. I’ll benefit a lot as I’ll start kicking around with <table> less layouts before I reach the level of comfort. 😀Read More
Deploying desktop applications written in Java has always been a problem. Having experienced them myself numerous times, I can say that its a nuisance that has to be tolerated. 😡
But not anymore. JSmooth is here to smooth out your experience as well as that of your client. Its a wrapper which creates Windows EXE files from Java JAR files, so that all the end user has to do is double-click the EXE file like in case of any other software.

If JVM is not found, like a gentle-bot, it opens the user’s browser explaining how they can get JVM. 😀Read More
This movie, Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, its coming September 17. What do you think? I just saw its trailer & it looks like typical sci-fi movie, with the environment etc. giving the feel of a video game. 😀
Starring Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow & Angelina Jolie, this looks like a host cast movie. 😀 And what’s more, Angelina Jolie stars like an old one eyed Pirate Captains, with a patch on one eye. 😀Read More
Its been a lot of time & I’ve hung on to the <table> tag for quite long. I’ve even argued fiercely whenever a CSS stylist has tried to advocate CSS based layouts & damned the tables.
Frankly, I’ve looked at several tutorials on creating a CSS based layout but they haven’t convinced me yet. They were sort of quickies when someone as dumb as me want to know anything & everything in a bit detail & with good explanations. So I thought that it isn’t time to move on yet. 😀Read More
Well, yes, that’s what it is.
Ever since I started blogging here from April 1(yes I’m sure of it), the visit-count at this blog have been around 15000+ per month, except in May when it dipped to 14400+. July saw the count rise to 17622 but what surprised me most, heck, astounded me, was that the count rose to 35127 in August!! 😯
Here’s a good article about using custom tag libraries in JSP over at IBM by Jeff K. Wilson. Though the article is quite old now(more than 2 & half years), its still a good read & quite useful for those who are starting out in JSP or aren’t aware of JSP’s ability of allowing custom tags. 😉Read More
Well, for those of you who are devoted to VB.NET, here are top 10 reasons as to why C# is better than VB.NET. 😀 Got around to it while reading the latest issue of Programmers Heaven newsletter & I know that its contradicting to my earlier post, but well, I look at both sides of the coin. 😉Read More
