Getting a hang of XBL and HTC

What behaviors are to IE, bindings is to Mozilla. I love this post, as I am writing after quite some time. All day long I read and studied a lot about these things. Here are some links you might like to check out.

There were a couple of more links but I guess I forgot to bookmark them. Anyhow these links should give you enough information about XBL and HTC.

The concept seem so stupid at first but they really make a lot of sense.

Airtel GPRS sucks

I feel a kind of emptiness that I have not felt in a very long time. I just wanted to write it down somewhere.

Really do not know what is going in my head. I just feel a little too confused. Just a week back things seemed so clear and then there are doubts cast all over. I think this phase will get over soon enough but till then need to put my head in the right place.

Eventually I would like to work on XUL, XForms and SVG. But cannot say what and where things will lead to. I am just not thinking of technology all that much. But let’s see, tomorrow is another day.

I am using a GPRS connection now and it simply crawls. It refuses to log into Google Talk, plus there is no way I can use any S/W to upload the blog articles. I have to log into Blogger and post them from there. I hope I can get a broadband soon enough. I had forgotten that net can be soooo.. slllooooooooooowwwwww. It’s taken me 3 hours to post this, and I am not kidding. Anyhow I did a couple of things during this time but still. It should not have taken more than a few minutes to complete the process.

And I thought I had opened up the blogger dashboard. I was so wrong. It’s still trying to open it as I type. I doubt if I will be able to post this tonight or ever.

And now I can finally blame all my problems on my Airtel GPRS. If it was any slower... I don’t even know what I was going to say argghhh..

The good, bad and ugly of "Regular expressions"

“Regular expressions” is one topic, which I love to hate. It needs to be used every now and then but the problem is that I never seem to get it. It’s been so long that whenever I try to write my own I simply make a simple search of google and I normally find it. So that is the max I know about RE. Lets see when I can finally get over this. Maybe someday.
