A bit of FOSS contribution

Over at SANIsoft in the past few days we released two small but very useful bits of code. The code was written to itch the classical ‘I need it’ itch. I do hope there will be more like me out there who would like to solve the same problems.

The links to downloads and demo are on the pages which I have linked above

Since I decided that I want to be able to write reviews of software on my E71 phone (yeah, that will kind of make this journal bloggy 😉 ) the first thing which I wanted to do was ability to take screenshots.

A bit of Googling brought me to Antony Pranata’s website and his freeware application very intuitively named Screenshot for Symbian OS. Great! Continue reading Taking screenshots on E71

Reviving the journal

After a lot of reluctance I am pushing myself to revive the journal writing, this time though I am going to use a self hosted WordPress on my site at http://tariquesani.net/blog/. Yes the URL says blog but I essentially want to keep this as a journal. No! I do not want to revive the journal vs. blog flame wars.

If you are reading this on the Live Journal site – you will notice that the entry has been cross posted, I will cross post perhaps for a few days and then stop… All the entries right from 2002 have been imported in to the WordPress install.

In a reversal of sorts I have decided to host my pictures at flickr and will be using the blog to post links to them. The current Coppermine install at http://tariquesani.net/ will stay because of SEO reasons, but sooner or later I will make the complete site WordPress based.

For the interested the theme used is a modification of Amazing grace theme – I chose this theme for the rotating headers and warm colors – am finally getting bored of dark colors for my websites :) Anyone having any suggestions for themes are most welcome.

Some day I will make a list of all the widgets and plugins I use.
