Firefox Sync

Firefox Sync. formally weave. I always wanted that I can continue my Firefox session from one place to anther. You don’t need to save password, you don’t have to save you history through Google Toolbar. You wont need bookmark addons. This is simply great. How many times did you left your computer at work on/hibernated because you thought you will loose your tabs(currently open sites). Sync currently supports continuous synchronization of your bookmarks, browsing history, saved passwords and tabs.

Lucid Lynx – Free man’s Mac

No matter how much I hate Apple and Macintosh for their marketing strategies, but I always appreciate innovation and consistency. Although price is also a factor.

No matter how much you bid to pay but you could never estimate the price of universal compatibility and top class user experience with the availability of option at every stage and still rock solid consistent performance that what is any GNU/Linux system is about and Ubuntu is a star team.

With their new star performer. Ubuntu 10.04 LTS aka Lucid Lynx is out and I can safely say that no matter how difficult is seem at first but impossible is nothing and Lucid Lynx is Free man’s Mac.

Urban Terror

This is a one great game. I tried it and I loved it. To all the counter-strike lovers who got shifted to GNU/Linux this is a life saver. I think there should be some variable to adjust the wall jump, power slide, and inhuman speed. I hope to find some good player skins colors.

Things I like:

  • GPL
  • Great maps
  • All OS support. 🙂
  • Realistic guns and limited ammo magazines.
  • Primary, secondary and side arm weapon slot.
  • Variable damage system.
  • Wounds/Bandage, Medikit
  • Wounds affects performance
  • Stamina system.

Blogging from emacs

Emacs is my favorite editor and I mostly use this on my work. I am also
an occasional blogger. I feel uncomfortable going on my blog and write
something while on work because of various reasons. 🙂

I found the solution for my problems in Emacs weblogger-mode. I can
draft, review, edit, improve, update and post all through my lovely
editor.

I love you emacs.

This post is prepared and posted through Emacs 23 on RHEL
5.1 through weblogger-mode.

Curl – A gentle slope system

Curl – A gentle slope system

Recently I (Shishir Sharma ‘criss’ )came to know about Curl Language. It’s a MIT – DARPA project. It’s a multi-paradigm hybrid functional language. Curl is reflective, homo-iconic, object oriented programming language. It supports closures, macros and declarative layouts.

Its syntax is based on TEX and has a big set of formatting operations. Curl is very scientific language, As they state …

“one uses the same easy-to-learn syntax to create interactive documents as to create regular text documents.”
