It's Heroku time

Heroku is sweet. Was super fun to build a tiny little website for my parents as a toy padrino app. So here I present Sneha Hospital

In case you're interested, I've also put up the source on my Github Repo. Doesn't amount to much but anyway :D

Meld for Subversion

To get meld to work as an external diff tool for subversion requires a tiny little hack Create a script
meld "$@"
That's it.
$ svn diff --diff-cmd

Kupfer Launcher

Having switched out my company issued Thinkpad T400 for a Dell Latitude E6420, I've switched Eclipse to Idea and now Gnome-Do to Kupfer.
I love gnome-do, except that it is sometimes like an angry wife :-) . Shuts you out, pegs the cpu at 100% and makes everything a drag, all for no explicable reason. And so I decided to give Kupfer a shot having previously tried Synapse and not liking it much. And it's coming along good. Perceptibly faster than Do, hasn't hanged yet and I haven't yet missed any feature from Do.

Ah except for, I'll have to admit, Do got me to the intended application faster. Based on learning my frequently used apps. Hope Kupfer gets that going too.

Document suggest goodness

Ever felt tongue-tied and lost for words while writing something. Scribe (just relaunched) does document suggestions easy, intuitive and blazing fast. Ala google suggest.

6 months

June 6, 2010 to Dec 6, 2010

Already been 6 whole months since we got married. Totally did not see the time going by.


I used to be on livejournal and then for no apparent reason I came over to blogspot one day. Tried out some app in between that posted to both places but can't remember what happened to that either. Either ways, both my blogs don't see any action these days but I've got to come around and write a couple of reviews of some recent buys.

* Canon Powershot a3100is for Kuntal's parents.
* Samsung Series 5 LA 32C550 32" inch LCD television for ourselves.

Also in the backlog
* A review of the delightful Palace Estate homestay in Kakkabe, Coorg.
