Finally, got the Windows 7 gadget that reads my Google calendar. whoo, that was tough
Sounds very easy to find one, but since Windows Gadget service has been shutdown and only few gadgets are online within Microsoft website, I needed to search for a while.
Just got the first bag of our old family photos with some videos.
When I say "Old" I mean 1980s and 1990s photos and videos.
I admit this is one of my wildest dreams, to get them digitize and archived, then share them with family and friends, each with its password to allow own access.
Attempt failed to establish my own server.
I was looking to a simple cheap easy-to-follow method to create my own server hosting my own website(s) on one of my machines, but it failed.
It is clear that the DNS/IP/CNAME settings where I don't have any experience in were the main thing against me. I tried to avoid that using No-IP.com or DNSExit.com with something called "cloaking" to stop showing IP to end user, but it wasn't what I am looking for.
After few days of trying and failing, I managed tonight to have access to my own server, it is actually a folder on my own laptop that I can access using an IP address+Port.
Update 2018-12-30: Below links and pages no longer work
Being a father of a fashion addict girl, I could not resist the urge to like this picture, liked the concept, the idea of merging a girl addict thing to a guy addict thing into one piece of art.
It has been a while since I start using Google Calendar (Since I got my Android phone), after few months of successful update and syncing between Google calendar and Outlook, I needed a quick way to add events to my Google calendar (Once added to Google, an app will sync it with my Outlook calendar).
DX-Ball is one of the best games I played, silly buy joyful.
I had this game since 2001, one of my clients in File1 gave it to me, He said that you will love it, at that time I was kind of away from games and consider them a waste of time (I still feel that sometimes) however I became easily addicted to it, not only me, other friends and customers were easily addicted to it.
Azher Mehdi, one of my old friends from Baghdad, we were together , me, my brother Ghassan, Anees my cousin and Azher hanging around and reading books from my father's big book library.
Anees was the one that has most passion for books, especially Islamic ones and that was the reason that Saddam and his guys killed him.
Few days ago I had that app in Facebook to help me import all my Facebook status posts and links into an Excel sheet.
Link to first post
The challenge was to combine them both, since Get Me My Data does each type of post in a separate process, and the one that does all wall is not aligned well.
Since my early childhood, I have never been addicted to single game, I am not the type of gaming guy anyway, but ...
This one I was sitting on it for days forgetting everything around me playing until I finished it, I really enjoyed it that I start searching for it once I got my 1st laptop around 2004.
During a visit to the doctor, the nurse was trying to get my blood pressure and the meter slipped when she was trying to clip it on my finger, that is when I felt that it will fall and quickly moved my hand to hold it.
At that minute, the nurse was saying "Waao! you have a quick response.!!!"
That got me remembering the few "Quick" responses I had in the past, and here are some of them:
It has been a while since I last time did this, so here it is
Just note the Multiple desktop app (in the left bottom corner of screen) that I started using a while back.
Cannot live without it anymore
As you can see, I was working with I3 and EA at that time, doing remote desktop using Remote Desktop Connection or TeamViewer was what made me able to do these two positions at the same time.
As you can see in most of my screenshots for the past years, I used an app called Multi-desktop, which has been a way to organize my thinking and working at the same time.
You should see my smile when I red this article this morning, going through the list of top 25 cities for tech jobs, passing Washington DC, Devner, Portland, NY and San Francisco, which I was pretty sure that it will be #1, no, passing all those and landed into Austin, TX
On the way home from school, since we were hungry and the traffic was bad, I asked my 3 kids to think about something (to let them forget about all that).
So I asked them to create a sentence represents my car plate number. Similar to "Girls Can't Eat 15 Pizzas" we sow on Monk few months ago, why not we do one for my car plate and one for Mom's.
