Code for Fun!!

Posted by on in iDevelop, iG:Syntax Hiliter, PHP, WP-Plugins | 166 comments

Seeing me freak out at solving maths equations, my mom used to say that solving maths problems is fun once you get the hang of it. I thought that she’s just telling me that to finish up my homework, but I now understand because its not that solving maths has become fun for me but I’ve found coding & solving problems in there to be fun, which apparently some people don’t. So logically speaking, when you get going in something, it starts looking fun to you, whatever it maybe, be it solving maths problems or logical equations while coding or cooking!!

Yahoo User Interface Library!!

Posted by on in iDevelop | 0 comments

There are many Javascript libraries around ranging from purposes of animation effects to allowing easy to cook AJAX applications. Be it Prototype or Rico, SAJAX or anything else, free libraries are available for you to use, gone is the time when you needed to grind your gray cells for hours & days to get that effect or user interface up & running. But what I dislike about all these libraries is that though they get the work done, they are quite difficult to use due to the lack of proper documentation. I know documenting some library or software takes a lot of time & most of the open source projects are done by individuals etc. in their spare time, but then its not of much use to others if there’s no documentation on various aspects as how to use it.

Development Ahead!!

Posted by on in iDevelop, iG:Syntax Hiliter, WP-Plugins | 6 comments

I’ve started looking into the code again for the iG:Syntax Hiliter, hopefully a version will be released by this weekend. 😉 I blogged earlier that the current v3.1.1 might not be compatible with WordPress 2 due some changes that I noted/guessed in the WordPress core since v1.5, but as some users have reported in and as I’ve tested it, iG:Syntax Hiliter v3.1.1 has no problems in working with either a fresh WordPress 2.x install or one upgraded from an older version. 😀 So you may go ahead & upgrade your WordPress installs if you’ve been holding back because of iG:Syntax Hiliter & if you’ve been waiting for the compatible release of iG:Syntax Hiliter to use with your WordPress 2.x install, go ahead and grab the current version & install it, no problems so far!! 😉

The IT services sector is booming again(after the dot com burst) & the companies are coming up everywhere to milk the opportunities that lay there for the skilled & daring. The already established companies began hiring again, breathing a new hope in those looking for jobs in this sector as well as in the freshers and students already studying & preparing to take their place in the IT sector!! One of the sub-sectors here is the web enabled services, the designing of web applications and their development to be precise, or as one can say in common tongue, website design and development.

Yahoo! Mail, it rocks!!

Posted by on in Serious Jokes | 4 comments

No, I’m not talking about the existing Yahoo! Mail, which is not bad in itself, but I’m talking about the Yahoo! Mail that’s not yet available to the masses. Yes yes, I’m of course talking about the new look & interface of Yahoo! Mail, which is currently in beta and accessible only to a very small percentage of Yahoo! users. I got the invitation yesterday when I logged in to mail, & asked me whether I want to try the beta, I of course wanted to & clicked the button, but I hit a snag there, as on the next screen I was informed that my browser(Opera v8.51) is not supported & that either I get a browser which is supported(IE6 or FireFox or Mozilla) or I continue on with old UI of Yahoo! Mail. Not one to let go of the opportunity, I immediately changed browsers & logged in again & there, the new interface loaded, & after the first look, my first reaction was ….. “wow”!! 😕

The last news on Google’s AdWords expansion, it was about AdWords Print Edition. Now it seems that Google will be trying its hand next in Radio, by delivering ads in the broadcasts, as Google looks set to buy a radio ad company called dMarc Broadcasting Inc. The purchase price of New Beach, California, based company is estimated at about $1.2 billion. Under the deal, which was announced few hours ago, Google will be paying $102 million in cash & about $1.14 billion over the next three years provided that the performance targets meet, like product integration, net revenue and advertising inventory targets.

Windows Live Mail sucks, literally!!

Posted by on in Serious Jokes | 37 comments

I got the invitation for testing the Windows Live Mail Beta & I opted for it, anticipating some enhanced UI that will help me use my Hotmail better. The invitations for this next generation of Hotmail are given out by themselves only, no existing beta tester can invite anyone else, as in the case of Gmail. So I jumped on, upgraded to Windows Live Mail Beta and logged in. But after using the interface for a few minutes, I was quite a bit disappointed, even though I’d known from the first looks that I’ll be disappointed!!

Bloggers' Evening Out!!

Posted by on in Serious Jokes | 2 comments

Note: If you are interested in reading a Hindi version of this, then please click here.

I’ve been waiting for the evening of January 2nd, 2006, with great anticipation, for the 5th Delhi Bloggers’ Meet was scheduled for half past six in the evening at the N-Block Connaught Place outlet of Barista. 😕 But the skies were not sharing my eagerness to meet the fellow bloggers and were looking menacing all day & started spitting their venom in slow motion by the time I was getting ready to leave for the meet. I waited & waited and when finally the skies stoppped for a breather, I seized my opportunity & rode my bike like hell, so as to get out of the area hoping against the hopes that they would leave me alone when I’m considerable distance away. That was not to happen as the conspiracy against me continued resulting a slight drizzle 2-3 times when I was on road. Unfazed, I continued to plough on. But determined to be not outdone by a mere mortal like me, the skies unleashed their fury when I took the turn for Laxmi Narayan Temple. Being stubborn as I’m(afterall I was nearly there), I increased my speed and continued on to Gole Market, Bangla Sahib and then Connaught Place. Since I hadn’t been to Barista(at Connaught Place) before, and as pointed out by codey earlier, I started to circumnavigate around the outer circle when finally after Ruby Tuesday & Federal Bank, I spotted the target!! 😀 I was already late by an hour and quite a lot soaked thanks to the fury of skies(which have given up by then & had gone for a break). So after parking, I dried up my bag & helmet, unsuccessfully tried to dry up my self & then went in.
