Was looking for a
audio file sound editor — but did not have any success with Audacity. Apparently, it doesn’t like CentOS much. However, during the quest, stumbled upon a post which talked about Ardour.
Installed like a charm, and the interface and features blew me away!
Lo and Behold! there’s a DJ in the making!
While in Chrome, just
F12 your way to awesomeness!
Update: Here’s an excellent presentation highlighting the key features of Dev Tools.
Thanks to Javatari, got to play Atari after a long long time — 20 years maybe. 🙂
My love for my phone resurfaced, when I had to flash it today (due to a reason outside of the context of this post). Anyway, in my quest for restoring whatever I had lost — applications mostly — came across ‘Humanity theme’ (of Ubuntu fame) and decided to give it a go. The result is what you see in this image. I loved it instantly!

Yes, in this age of Ice-cream Sandwiches, Honeycombs and iOSx’s — I am still fond of my phone. (This is in spite of the fact that Nokia abandoned Maemo.)
I was so excited when I got hands on my first tablet — Notion Ink Adam. Although the moment I booted it — right from the first swipe, something smelled fishy — but the innocent me decided to keep a brave face and be encouraged by the ‘exciting’ journey I was about to embark on!
It’s been more than an year now — and I’m still waiting for that ‘excitement’ to come along. The problems are numerous with this tablet. In my journey to try to fix it, I have come across hundreds of comments and blogs about how crappy the product is! One of them said: “It’s an unfinished product!”. I completely agree.
Two questions bother me every now and then:
- Why did they have to put a half-cooked product in the market?
- Even if they did, what stops them from COMING FORWARD AND FIXING IT?!!
I’ll not get started with the issues in this product — probably I’ll end up writing another Britannica. My advice to anyone thinking about getting a Notion Ink Adam would be: Do yourself a favour, don’t!! Even a Samsung Tab would be better (I say this inspite of having no trust in a company like Samsung — but I know for sure, at least their tab would boot!).
Shifted to WordPress from Livejournal (pugtex.livejournal.com). Two main reasons:
- i found the advertising (just below the header) quite annoying
- my workplace allows WordPress, but not LJ — for some crappy reason.
Hope this association lasts longer.
