Here ia a nifty extension for Firefox. Personas for Firefox is a extension that adds lightweight theming to your browser. I like this theming extension because as stated before its lightweight, it's easy to change from one theme to another without restarting Firefox and themes are readily accesible via a Fox mask icon on the status bar.

Apps on My PC: Virtualbox

I'm a jealous type of guy, last week i got jealous because my boss has "spaces " installed on his mac and so i Googled and got Virtuawin. Now i'm jealous of his mac because it's running parallels with Windows Vista as his guest and i said to myself I want one too!!! And so with the help of the mighty google i found a bunch of virtualization software and tried them. I tried VMware, Qemu and Virtualbox. Among the three i really like Virtualbox, I like it because its not that big of a download its around 16.9mb compared to VMware's 100+mb and its user friendly.

What is Virtualbox? Virtualbox is a hardware emulation virtualization software(say that 10x faster), by mapping the host computer’s hardware resources directly to the virtual machine’s resources, it creates a virtual copy of your computer. With this virtual machine you can install and run different operating system within your host computer.

I'm currently running Virtualbox on an Windows XP (XP being the host) and gOS Linux as guest. Everything works out of the box. :)

Apps on My PC: VirtuaWin

I'm a linux user since wayback. One of the things i like to use in linux is the virtual desktop because i like switching from one desktop to another basically to hide NSFW stuff. :D

A couple of weeks ago my boss showed me is his brand new os x leopard and all its features and the one thing that caught me is "spaces" which kinda look familiar oh wait i know its the same as virtual desktop on linux except it has a better name. So i figured i want one on my office laptop which sad to say is running windows xp. I googled for some virtual desktop software for windows and i found this wonderful piece of an open-source software named VirtuaWin. its just a simple program that sit on your systray and does its job pretty well. But what does its really do? well here's a quote from the official site of VirtuaWin:
A virtual desktop manager lets you organize applications over several virtual desktops (also called 'workspaces'). Virtual desktops are very common in Unix/Linux, and once you get accustomed to using them, they become an essential part of a productive workflow.

nuff reading start downloading!

A Different Kind of Networking

Tire of those social networking sites such as Friendster, Myspace, Multiply, Facebook well here is something new Hatebook the Evil side of networking. Hatebook is a parody site based on Facebook. Everything you know about social networking is thrown out the window cause what you'll find here is quite the opposite. Remember the albums or galleries of your friends well in Hatebook they have "Hate Albums" where pictures and descriptions of everything you hate is listed.. weird huh? They also got "I'm Better then You" instead of those testimonials/comments. Curious? well just go to and spread the hate.

Skins for DScaler

A couple of years ago i made some skins for a program named dscaler. DScaler is the program i used for watching Television on my PC. Its Default Skins is kinda lacking so i made a skin for it and this is one of my early foray into skinning. Here is the description of dscaler quoted from their official site

DScaler 4 is a piece of software that captures video, processes it, and scales it for presentation on a projector or computer monitor. DScaler implements highly sophisticated algorithms that work in real-time to provide PC owners with image quality matched only by very expensive equipment.

Go to for more info and to find out what capture card are supported.
