Next best thing since sliced bread

This has been a quite month not blogged much but have been twitting quite a lot lately. My pet project is still not complete have a few good ideas that I want to put in before I launch an alpha release. There is still quite a bit of work that needs to be put in to make it a little more functional. Have started a new blog with the site but still nothing written there. Surprisingly this month has been hectic and I've not been able to work on any of the weekends.

The project seems stupid at most times but then again its taken me a little more than 2 years to get to where it is. Have worked with 10-15 concepts before deciding on it finally. Am still not sure if this is what I will release but till next time when I blog. Hopefully that post will be about the launch of an alpha that a few people might get to see.

Tomorrow I leave for Thailand and will be there for a week and lets hope I relax my mind and body and hopefully complete the project. Regarding the project its got a lot to do with search and would hopefully make it simple to search things online. Not sure how many people will use it but I sure miss a simple tool like this. Its not a search engine, just don't have the server resources as of now to make one.

Link to switch to the new Yahoo! Mail interface

I still use the classic version of the Yahoo! Mail interface. Today I wanted to try out the new interface and I could not find the link that would allow me to switch. So just as a reminder in case I plan to switch again.

Try it now!

Will silverlight make any impact on flash?

I was trying out Microsoft silverlight a few days back and compared to flash it actually rocks. Its light years ahead of flash with a choice of programming languages and the basic design. Also if Microsoft sends it out as an update it will be in at least 70%-80% of all machines in a few days time. Thats just one side of the story. Since most designers/developers who have mostly worked with flash would not want to change since there seems no valid reason to change. So probably Microsoft needs to make a killer application in silverlight that can really challenge flash. But given the kind of platform that silverlight is its not very difficult to build one.

There is more to come on this topic as developers begin to see the technology and power of silverlight.
