Sudoku

December 11, 2005 1 comment


This may be the worst time for an expert player, but I took 18:55 to solve my first
sudoku. I thought it was a silly game and kept away from playing all these days fearing addiction; but atlast tried it out today. I must admit I liked it. Download offline playable game.

AJAX – why should you like it?

December 9, 2005 Leave a comment

AJAX stands for Asynchronous Javascript And XML programming. I’m seeing increasing number of new web interfaces based on this model. Like the Personalized Google, start.com, live.com and windows live mail (signup for beta access). My hotmail inbox now looks so much cooler and feels faster and slickier to work with :). I’ve also been hearing about the new YahooMail beta, but not lucky enough to get the invite yet. The advantage I see is the ability of partial page refreshes; which make webpages look rich and behave responsive like standard desktop client applications.

The ASP.NET 1.x model seemed to have been extensively biased around server side programming, and even using a small client side javascript was never simple. But, its good to see things change in this area with ASP.NET 2.0.
