Two Years…

October 20, 2005 Leave a comment

Here’s another anniversary message!! Yes… its exactly two years today, since I joined Hewlett-Packard. Though I’ve changed workplaces from Cunningham Rd to Racecourse Rd to Electronic City, I’ve been working in the same team.
Prior to this, I was with ITC Infotech, mostly with the Prototyping Lab, which is no more. If I’d to say one thing about my stay there… it would be POTS. For those who have the context, they know what I’m talking about. 😀

Here is a site which seems to have TMed this expression already, but that’s it for now! till I come up with a new one. Ofcourse, I hope to post more often this year or … may be lesser. Well… It depends !! 🙂

GreaseMonkey for Firefox

October 18, 2005 Leave a comment

One of the attractive features of Mozilla Firefox the customization and extensibility. GreaseMonkey is one of the many such cool extensions, that can totally change the browsing experience. It allows to configure running of a script everytime a site/page is visited. It means that… you can zap the (ugly-big-flashing) ad-banners in yahoomail or skip the audio ads or many such things. Also, it looks quite easy to write one yourself. Finally some ad-free browsing??!!

To try the next best thing… Fx 1.5 beta2.

Well, that’s how the channel9-guy-Scoble, starts his video interviews for msdn’s channel9. Interesting to see that he does the same with Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer too.

A lot more of channel9 videos.

Office Office

Here are some screen shots and a whole demo of the microsoft office12 UI. I’m impressed (I thought… I would not… but still… I am!!) . I like the idea of “ribbon” allowing contextual usage of the toolbar space. Currently, almost all apps allow customizing toolbar buttons, but its wonderful to have a “right set” of them presented to you at each step of your work. Guess, it’ll be a a lot of fun.

At the same time, openoffice is a great open-source alternative. I downloaded 1.1.5 to check-out what’s in and what’s not. Though, it misses quite a few features, its quite a good for the daily basic needs. Besides, it comes free!
