New year party

I was asking Ashish, if he had any good plans for new years party. He suggested that instead of spending money on a new years party, use the same money and send it to the Tsunami relief fund. Now that is really a very good idea.

Later I was wondering that I would be missing out on a good party but then I thought it should be worth it.

Here is some information about Prime Ministers National Relief Fund

Thinking of getting this

Bust MTT1 Turntable

Bush MTT1 Turntable (49.99) for home (Bomaby) since there are so many records back home. I can rather go in and get the stylus but I guess the price diff is about 20£ and I dont even know if the stylus will actually work with the AIWA?

Or is getting that a waste of money.

I dont think it is a waste of monney since daddy really liked the player.

What I hate about FireFox.

Searching through a page. I know it seems really cool that it searches as I am typing stuff in the searhc box -- that is the good thing.

The bad thing is that in a mutiframed page is searchs through all the frames, so if I wanna search only through a single frame I cannot do that ( like in IE)

I really require single frame searching since I genereally use java docs and I genereally wanna search for a word in the detailed page of a class on the right frame.

Say I have selected JTable from the list of classes and I see the java doc for JTable on the right frame, now I just wanna search through JTable docs for say, invalid entry but that is not possible when I hit Ctrl-F since now is stars searching from the left frame and then goes to the right frame.

Desktop Blogging Application - BlogJet

Seems to be a really nice Desktop Blogging Application -BlogJet. I think I am going to install it on my desktop PC.

I was thinking that I could not post pictures from this application then I realized that Virgin  ( my ISP ) should be giving me free space and I guess I can use that for my postings. Moreover I also configure my phone for sending image pictures as a method of picture blogging, the only problem being, selecting individual pictures and attaching it to an email is such a pain using N6600 ( I think that is what I have ).

Interesting problem with InteliiJ regarding the CVS File View Window.

InteliJ has different windows like the CVS File View, Ant Build, Debug, Run etc all these windows are by default attached to the main InteliJ windows but they can be floated out as a sperate window. I did the same for the CVS File View window, since I have to monitors and wanna use up the space properly.

Today I somehow managed to get the Floating CVS File View window off the screen so that I can not longer see the top bar of the CVS FileView Windows when it is floated, I was quite irritated about it since I could not move the window about and I was kinda stuck with the location. The only option that I had was to disabling floating for the CVS File view window, that wasnt that good since I could not use the screen space properly.

So here is how I solved the problem.
Each project has a project file and this file is in xml format (which is realy good since I can read it and make a lot of sense of it), I had the project open and also had the project xml file open in the editor. Whenever I used to save the project in the InteliJ used to get a notification from the editor stating that the file has been updated by an external source ( InteliJ Project save ) and if I wanted to reload. Since this project file was really big I didnt want to go through the entire file to look for the XML tag that was realted to the CVS File View window. So here is what I did
1. Take a copy of the project file with the CVS File View attached to the main InteliJ window.
2. Float the CVS File View window ( in this case I cannot see the top bar of the CVS File View window ) and now save the project.

On diff'ing both the project files in dos I could locate the tag that had to be changed

window_info id="CVS File View" active="true" anchor="right" auto_hide="false" internal_type="sliding" type="floating " visible="true" weight="0.40048543" order="4" x="1442" y="-29" width="493" height="855"

As you can see above this tag has an attribute of y=-29 hence it was jumping off the screen.

On Sat I got this book on Relatiivty Understanding Einstein's Theories of Relativity: Man's New Perspective on the Cosmos Stan Gibilisco

It is really very nice book, I havent read a lot but but about a couple of chapers and it really seems interesting. The examples provided in the book are good and moreover the way he explains the stuff really makes you wonder about the size of space itslef. I really am going to go ahead and read more of this book. The initial examples were really good but I guess I may have to get someting on elementary physics since there are some calculations in other chapters. May be I will go in for Physic Demystified

I finally went in for another book on Relativity. The Elegant Universe: Superstrings, Hidden Dimensions and the Quest for the Ultimate Theory
