It is just a single line of shell command, but it helped me solve a problem so I guess it deserves its own post. Forewarning: You cannot undelete what’s already been deleted before implementing this method.
Packt Publishing have a lot of good premium books and everyday they put up a premium book for download for free. You could get a premium book a day by going to the Free Learning eBook page. I chose to automate the process and have the book grabbed automatically to my PacktPub account everyday. I have made the script available on Github for anyone who is interested to do the same: PacktPub Grabber.
Boom Boom Boom! is a webapp for your party.
What does it do?
Boom Boom Boom! throws up animations, text photos, graphics and different effects. You can use your mobile or keyboard to control it, or you can play the music and let the graphics change on its own.
LiveReload is a handy tool for web-developers. Do you not use Dreamweaver alternatives for linux, or any other web development tools? If you make use of text editors to code and web browsers to preview the result, then you must be tired of constantly hitting the save button on your text editor as well as that reload button on your web browser.
How often do you have to take a spreadsheet data and covert to a character separated value? Tabular data, be it a number or a text are all stored in a plain text form by CSV (Comma Separated Values) files. A CSV file can compile a number of records with separate fields, which are uniquely identified by a standardized literal comma, tab, any character or string. This type of file format has been widely supported and used in many fields. All types of spreadsheets and database management systems basically support these CSV files.
Hey everyone, this post is specifically meant for guys from Nepal, so if you’re not from there, you might want to skip reading it.
Starting today, I will post a weekly collection of some of the useful and fun links/tools/good reads that I have come across over the week. I will try my best to make this a regular thing, and post it on every weekend.
Last time we had talked about a service developed by a Nepali company which allowed users to make money every time their cell phone rang. This time also, we have got a service, which is developed in Nepal and can make you money not just for picking up calls, but for viewing SMS’ as well. It is somewhat different, however.
Graphi.me is an unique webapp that allows you to generate detailed infographic about your friends on Facebook. It shows different statistics about your friends and groups them, which will even help you discover things you didn’t know before.
I just learned about this Android app called CashOnAd which is suprisingly, home-made (when I say home-made, I mean made in Nepal). It is suprising because it deals with something not so popular in our country – making money through an unconventional way. What it does is let you watch video advertisements whenever you receive a call, and for each 6 seconds of video advertisement that you watch, you will earn 1 cent (~1 NPRupees at current rate). That does not sound much, but at least its something, I guess.
Today we have got a useful tool for those who like to watch TV shows on their computer. Episode Player is a free program that has got a very unique feature that makes it suitable for watching TV shows – it remembers the episode you had last watched, and the next time you open it, it starts the next episode. Episode player is not a video/media player however, it just remembers the video you last played and opens next videos with a media player of your choice (Windows Media Player, VLC etc).
