Tearfully, for the last time – I’m launching into one more technical babble.
There are really two kinds of blogging I’ve been doing: writing and sharing technical stuff generally desktop customization. However, I soon realized that my limited number of readers were predominantly not interested in any computer- related stuff let alone whatever latest and mightiest conky configuration I had set up. Hence, to cater to my exclusive tech audience I’m starting this new journal of my tech journey.
There are a lot of torrenting clients in Linux. Deluge, Transmission are especially quite good ones. However, none of them could ever touch my beloved utorrent – the king of torrenting clients. In fact, utorrent was a perfect piece of software – lightweight, great at what it does and absolutely intuitive ( Fact is you start hating other pieces of software once you start using it). My quest for the perfect torrenting client in Linux seemed doomed from the start – either it was too much or too little. And that was when I met this incredible piece of software.
I’m a man who expects perfection and I just felt like giving a good solid rant today, so here it goes. In my quest for the perfect distro I have roamed across the vast mine of distros that are available. And everytime I get simply astounded by the sheer variety and choice I have in choosing what distro I need.
I am in love with a beautiful girl called Shruti and this chrome theme is in dedication to her to prove my everlasting love ( along the lines of the legendary Debian ).
Hmm … How I wish that the above line was true . Frankly, I have never known anybody with that name, let alone a beautiful girl. I simply like that name a lot. So, with that out of the bag let me unveil to you my first Google chrome theme – Shruti.
Ah … you think ‘another guy gushes on the wonders of the net’. But wait a second, HEAR ME OUT. This ain’t the usual crap. I am not going to write about how my grandma, in some god-knows-what name place gets to see the photos of me, hanging out with my friends. And I’m definitely not going to write about how I got to meet all my friends, who had chosen a completely different career path. Instead I’m going to write about the sheer addictive drug that creates wonder whenever I feel it ripping through my nerves – the miracle of the internet.
I put forth my case using just two examples of the countless available.
Finally I got my hands on the only product ( Now, they’ve got Windows 7, that makes the count 2 ) that reveals Microsoft’s true genius – MS Office. I did try to take a look when it was at the technical preview state, but my Win-7 Beta somehow refused to go along. Now, with lots of expectations – especially after the trailer ( Yup, a full-blow HD trailer ) I downloaded it.
Gosh ! MS Guys after all have a sense of humor
The installation was a breeze. The app just asks whether you want to upgrade or do a fresh install. Everything else is taken out of your hands. Characteristic of the Win7 experience – something I hate and love.
I woke up this morning expecting another dreary day. Then surprise surprise Google dropped me a mail. Finally after nearly 6 months of waiting and steadfastly stopping myself from registering for a 2nd person invite Google decide to invite me to preview Google Wave. I’m going on high wave right now
Ho … ho. I found out finally how to pronounce linux. And guess what I have been doing it right, right from the first time I heard that word . Found this audio clip in wikimedia commons.
And if things still don’t work here’s the link for downloading : Linux by Linus
That was how I actually started. The problem arised when I wanted to embed a player in my page, instead of just a link. And surprise,surprise Ogg is not supported that easily. I looked into several 3rd party players, though they support Ogg the dynamic WP engine doesn’t seem to support them. WP simply supports, using a audio player plugin, based on flash any mp3 can be played.
Hello … everybody . It’s been a long time since I started working on my web-designing skills.
Yesterday, I crafted my latest version of the my simple and humble website. It’s been a long work and very tiring but neverthless a labour of love ( Luv that word )
Here it is …. Click on the picture to go the new page
U like it ? U hate it ? U think something is missing ? U think it is too much ? Rave, Criticize . Say anything about the design …
The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) is the main international standards organization for the World Wide Web (abbreviated WWW or W3). It has a markup and validation service for HTML and CSS widely considered to be the official standard for clean and efficient coding.
Google Invalid ?
I just came across this today while I was inspecting. Google the world’s leading search engine and considered by many to be the leading trendsetter in anything related to the cloud has it’s homepage riddled with HTML markup errors. In fact, when I ran the W3C validator I got this :
