Morange

I have Nokia N70 on the T-Mobile network, and it's really impressive. Labelled as a Smart Phone, it is a bit like a cross between a PDA and a normal mobile phone. Boy does it live to expectations.

You can check your emails (POP/IMAP), read Word documents, Spreadsheets, view To-Do lists and so much more. Now I sound like a sales man. The most handy aspect is the ability of downloading "mini-applications".

What I really want to talk about is a mini-application that let's you treat your phone as if it is an iPhone. Yes, you heard me. An iPhone. Why bother with a mobile phone that costs you an arm and a leg for a phone with a pretty interface. Well, I would, but I would not like to risk my limbs in the process.

This application is called Morange (http://www.morange.com) and is feature rich. You can receive an "push" POP/IMAP emails. It even works with GMail. All you have to do is enable POP3 in the settings (Follow this link to find out how http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=13273). It has Chat that works with Google Talk, Yahoo and MSN, as well as its own network. Then there's RSS, storage space to share files, and Remote Desktop for technicians on the go.

I can't live without it. This is the closest I can get to an iPhone, without losing my arms (and legs). In the process of using this, no Smart Phone can go without this if you want to be completey mobile and organised.

So download it and join the ever growing online mobile community. I have.

Open Source alternatives to Adobe Creative Suite

With the take over of Macromedia by Adobe, they have increased their arsenal of design packages, as well as the price. No-one can do pretty much without the popular package of Photoshop for their images, and Dreamweaver for websites, especially aspiring design students who do not have much money.

Nevertheless, open source software has come to save the day. What is open source software? In a nutshell it is free software with its source-code freely available to those who would like to expand or improve on the software. To expand further, anyone who’s tinkered with the source code such as optimisation or additional functionality can resubmit it back to the holders and let others enjoy the fruits of your labour.

I have trawled through the World Wide Web to find out how everyone can benefit from Open Source to build up their own studio and compete against Adobe Creative Suite. All this for free, apart from the cost of the Internet. I am planning to have a facility where you can purchase th…

Open Source alternatives to Adobe Creative Suite update

Oh yes, an update to an earlier post about getting hold of free or Open Source alternatives to Adobe Creative Suite.

I actually forgot to mention about Adobe ImageReady, which gets bundled with Photoshop. There are a number of basic animation tools, but none provide flexibility similar to ImageReady. Fortunately, Open Source lovers are in for a surprise in the form of GIMP Animation Package. This link will take you to the Windows download site as I cannot find any references to this for the Mac OS. Chances are that it could be part of the Gimp.app download, but I haven't had time to inspect this.

The Creative Suite package includes Adobe Bridge, which is a thumbnail viewer to convert images and open them up in any Adobe application for editing. No matter how they would try to trump up its name, it is still a thumbnail viewer. The best free application out there for this is IrfanView. Need I say more?

Are there any pixel pushers out there, who prefer to simply draw their own pics? Why…

ASP Reverse For Loop

It's kind of interesting of how reverse linking does not seem so obvious in classic ASP.  You would think that it would be along the lines of:

dim i
for i = 30 to 2
  'code comes here
next

but it's not.  To have a reverse For loop it's:

dim i
for i = 30 to 2 Step-1
  'code comes here
next

That's right that small bit (Step-1) makes all the difference.  I stumbled upon this by chance and thought that someone would benefit from this.
