I wonder why it never caught-on!

Notepad++ Message

Category: WindowsTeknovis @ 6:44 pm

Wow – it has been a long time since I blogged!!!

I updated my favourite text editor recently – Notepad++. I was very impressed when the following message appeared slowly on my screen as if somebody was typing it:

Notepad++ Message

And just because I too believe in free speech (and equally the right not to agree with the speech being expressed):

Venngage

Category: Infographic,InternetTeknovis @ 10:19 pm

I came across two very professional looking infographics from colleagues this week. The colleagues are not designers, so I was very impressed with their work!

It turns out that they both used Venngage.

I must give it a try the next time that I think that I need an infographic!

Humorous Guide to Programming Languages

Category: Humour,Software DevelopmentTeknovis @ 9:42 pm

A friend recently sent this humorous guide to programming languages to me – A Brief, Incomplete, and Mostly Wrong History of Programming Languages.

Actually, this guide makes me feel that I want to learn a weird and wonderful new programming language!

Kindle Advertisement

I was browsing the Amazon site recently, and I came across the following advertisement:

Kindle Fire HDX Advertisement

Kindle Fire HDX Advertisement

I am extremely sceptical about the claim that it is “Lighter than Air“! Is this false advertising?

However, if it is true then I think it must be very inconvenient!

SamKnows in Ireland

Category: Hardware,Internet,TelecomsTeknovis @ 11:26 pm

I recently heard about SamKnows in the context of it being available in Ireland! In summary, it is a free to participate in scheme which involves plugging a box into your ISP’s internet connection in order to measure actual speeds! You can then compare these actual speeds to the advertised speeds in order to determine the difference.

How Angry Birds Started

I received this image over the weekend (I assume that it came from How Angry Birds Started):

I must confess that I have never played Angry Birds, but I still like the story of continuously trying!

There are lots of other nice infographics on Funders and Founders.

Crowdsourced Unreal Tournament

Category: Games,Software DevelopmentTeknovis @ 8:33 pm

Apparently the next version of Unreal Tournament is going to be crowdsourced according to Epic announces crowdsourced dev model for next Unreal Tournament.

I have fond memories of playing the multiplayer version of this game :) Actually, I do not think that I have played a single game of anything else since then!

Seagull Robot

Category: RoboticsTeknovis @ 5:50 pm

It is an old(ish) video, but it is still really impressive!

I can imagine some of the covert military operations that such a robot could be used for in the future!
