Tasky :: a neat little tool

I just discovered one cool little tool called Tasky . Tasky can be used to assign tasks to different members of a team , it is a bit like Microsoft Project but it could be used for tasks which are not usually planned in Microsft project or just as a reminder for team members .

It runs with Tomcat and MySql. It took me like 30 minutes to get it up and running which is to say how easy it is to install. If you dont want it to run with MySql it can store all data in memory (this is good if you want to have just an idea of what you can do with the tool).

The interface is really cool ,relaxing and above all easy to use.

Hope you will enjoy it:

While visiting the hacker community on orkut i came across a thread about a site which offered you to hack through it . There are many levels involved each one more difficult than the previous.

Here is the url

This is a really good game , all those having an IT background should try it :)

P.S You should have a knowlegde of JavaScript , I personally managed to arrive on level 5 where I am currently trying to hack.

Running UNIX on your Game Boy

I found this article about a guy who actually made UNIX run on his Game Boy Advance (GBA) console. Man the lengths people go through to make their lives more interesting ..(haha!).

He gives off very clear and well formatted information on his findings, which is a good thing to get to understand what he says ..hmm

Ok so if you are interested in how to run UNIX on GBA here is the place where you can make your dreams come true (or make you lose your sleep):

Windows Media Player 10

Just installed the latest media player from Windows . The interface has changed a bit from the previous Windows MP 9 , however there is no big difference and in terms of functionality the following is possible:

1. Rip (Ripping music to your Hardisk)
2. Burn (Burning your own CDs)
3. Sync (with portable devices)
4. Guide (Gives you acess to information on latest music)
5. Online Stores (Access to Microsoft's new online Store)

The skins are the same as Windows MP9. I think they ought to have added a few new skins.

Basically i havent found much innovation in the new version but as its new and free well just as well install it :P .


Microsoft Online store:

Orkut the Community

Another service which is making a lot of noise right now is Orkut . This is basically a network of friends which you develop and which makes the Orkut community grow.

Right now the majority of people in Orkut surprising comes from Brazil (52%), US (16%), Iran (5%) and india (2%). I think this has got to do with invitations , to register to the community you need to send invitations and this normally engenders a chain reaction where 1 person sends 3 invitations and the 3 which comes send 3 times 3 invitations and so on...

Orkut is still budding and if you want to make your place for a service which is bound to be really cool well its the right time to get registered (..or invited :P ).

So if you want to get an invitation just let me know :)
