News Alloy

January 27, 2006

On my previous post about t3h blox0r, the site’s developers said that the development is on hold. So I’ve tried searching another alternative to this ajaxy web-aggregator and found NewsAlloy. NewsAlloy is a Web based RSS Reader, which allows to subscribe your favourite News Sources and read news in a easy and manageable way. The […]

Windows XP Fixes, Tips and Tweaks

January 26, 2006

Being paranoid over the previous virus attack on my system, I’ve searched a couple of sites describing svchost.exe and rundll32.exe to at least understand a little bit about them :P. The former link is a description from Microsoft Help and Support, and the second link takes you to Ramesh’s Site: Windows XP Fixes, Tips and […]

I’ve been trying to make a WordPress theme these few days, and suddenly my graphic card’s fan broke down yesterday. I’ve sent it to the nearest service station, but unfortunately they said that it can only be fixed by the end of this week… So now I’m posting from my Dad’s notebook. And today, while […]

January 18, 2006

I’ve just got my copy of Apache, WordPress, PHP and MySQL yesterday and played around with them a bit. What fun! Now I’m trying to create a theme from scratch, referencing to John Godley’s Dissection of A WordPress Theme. Great tutorial! I only managed to finish part 3 of the tutorial, currently busy tweaking the […]

t3h blox0r !!1!

January 17, 2006

Despite the l33t n4m3 (which is, l33t), I really liked blox0r, an AJAXy online aggregator (think Bloglines). It has most of the features you’d expect from an online feed-reader, five different layout to choose from (similar to Outlook), bookmark features in addition to subscriptions, preview summary mode, soon-to-come tag feature, and a couple more nifty […]

Next-Gen Musical Instrument – TENORI-ON

January 15, 2006

At first, I thought this was just another cute little toy that produces light and sound. I was wrong. This video over at YouTube (Toshio Iwai – ArtFutura 05) left me utterly speechless. From what I’ve seen, this little instrument contains 16×16 matrix LED surrounded by an aluminium frame. The horizontal LEDs are the timeline, […]

iTunes Skin with Multi-Plugin 2.2

January 15, 2006

For those of you who’s wondering on how to make iTunes skinnable… You’re going to need the latest version of multi-plugin by localhost. It’s an excellent plugin with other features than just skinning iTunes. I’ve used it mainly to reduce memory usage when iTunes is minimized. Get it here and install it. If you’re using […]

Michael Arrington over at TechCrunch tells us about three new web2.0 classifieds sites. Looking over the sites he mentioned I got pretty interested in theadcloud. Basically you can add your ads about your products/services for free, and people can find your ads based on location (city). And of course, there are tags involved :P The […]
