Advantage that due to the number of options they have, they could think about which one would be most appropriate for their venture. Here are the most used textual content authors by web developers:

Notepad

Notepad is the most well-known textual content writer depending on the study. It does not assistance any structure or designs, which creates it very appropriate in a DOS atmosphere. It is one of the most preferred because it identifies both remaining to right and right to remaining dialects. It also does macro-recording and play-back for recurring key strokes, a highly effective frequent appearance search-and-replace, and assistance for many coding dialects. Although you can modify computer file using note pad regardless of what the structure is, it does not study UNIX or MAC-style textual content information perfectly.

Textmate

Developers desire Textmate because it functions declarative custom remaking, an eye for start records, recordable macros, foldable areas and thoughts, spend incorporation, and an extensible package system. However, it does not assistance variable-width or huge print designs, right-to-left dialects, (S)FTP, divided opinions and textmate tends to work more slowly when consisting with huge information or long collections. Developers must also be online to be able to confirm their web page because only W3C validator can be used for HTML approval.

Coda

It was developed to take care of the issue of ineffectiveness of full-featured web design systems corresponding to database incorporation foundation Xcode. One of its significant function is that it functions a new Find/Replace procedure. It advantages the customers because they were able to do complicated swithces using a technique just like frequent movement.

With the use of favorites, designers can go to the corresponding range of textual content from anywhere in the writer by hitting the weblink in the Value Gps.

Vim

Vim is appropriate with Ms windows, A red hat systemunix system and MAC OS. It is according to orders given in a text-user individual interface. The control range function is where its complete performance occurs. Some opinions it as a programmer’s best companion because it is very practical to use and it is very extensible. Developers are not the only ones who advantage from this textual content writer, but also the kids of Uganda. Although Vim is free and free, its certificate has charityware clasuses.

PSPad

PSPad is a free application textual content writer for Ms windows. It can handle format featuring and hex modifying, and is developed as a worldwide GUI for modifying many dialects such as PHP, Perl, HTML, and Coffee, autocompletion, an eye, FTP customer and find/replace using frequent movement.

Chennai well i have some thoughts to share

I am at chennai now and u know its the showpiece of loopsided economic liberalisation.There is anarchy in the way Chennai operates.I dont know whether you are in what side of the political spectrum but reality will show you that poor in Chennai have no place out here.Glitering shopping malls,food courts,awefull traffic its just all about money honey.I was interacting with one of my friends about the way of life in Chennai,i was complaining about the way people take cars to places totally congested say Usman road  where there is bridge under construction,he was totally shocked when i asked him to use public transport.I was remembered about a Emmanuel Khant’s thought “extract maximum pleasure from the earth with minimum pain to it and its inhabitants”.I came home feeling this city is for people belonging to people with money.The arrival of India the consumerist nation.

I got these questions bothering my sleep totally for some time:

“Is the money what i earn defines me and the way i spend it has any direct relation with my needs”

“Is my needs defined by my wishes then where come from these wishes originate am i just a prisoner of the society what the society defines as trend i go on consuming”

“How people become rich what generates inequality if its hardwork then the one who cleans up our ditches does mork work than a guy working for an MNC and he is more relevant in all sense.”

“Is life just a way to spend the money you earn,is this sustainable to this nation or to say the entire planet”

P.S:In kenya owing tremendous food scarcity a child was forced to eat what her mother vommited we are in an age of shortage   should we not share the burden when consuming scarce resources.As people say Ignorance is bliss.

Sub-Prime Mortage Crisis bane of free market

Free market fundamentalists have time and again argued the self healing nature of markets and have criticised any regulation to the operation of market forces.But as Marx put forward the capitalistic system is a system of crisis.This happens due to the accumalation of production and as there are no takers in the market the investment dries out leading to a collapse.The sub-prime mortage crisis that has affected the US and also the world financial markets is a one that has resulted out from greed for market financial operations without any logic remainds us of the economic crisis of the thirties. For those like me with no knowledge on economics the traditional banking system works the following way any bank has depositors who invest money for long time interests and security.The bank lends this money to those asking for loans based on the logic that the amount of money withdrawn would be far less than the money invested thus guaranteeing that the financial system is stable.But what happens in case of a rumour that investors start demanding money they invested in that case the central bank lends support as the whole process is short-term in nature.The traditional banking system was highly regulated in the aftermath of 1939 economic crisis.But in case of time all regulations were replaced by an adhoc system.

It involves lending loans to buy homes to capitalise on the housing bubble to people without any financial backing to repay the loan.Thus when the housing bubble burst the loans became bad and the financial institutions thriving on sub-prime mortages went bankrupt and the share value of these companies collapsed(For example Bear was taken over by JP morgan for 2$ per share).The complete dichotomy was that those flag bearers of deregulation of the financial system are asking for tax payers money to bail out that system from a complete collapse.The Fed has been reducing the interest rate and trying to improve liquidity without any positives.

Effect On India:

Indian banking system is highly regulated and any moves for capital convertibility will prove fatal for financial stability.The Fed rate cut means dollar value going down against ruppee which has affected our export oriented industry.I think its better to consider some cap on FIIs investing in India it brings a lot of speculative capital into the Financial Market.

The global food crisis coupled with the sub-prime crisis may lead to a situation of stagflation in the world economy we are in tough times .

Four Years a look back.,I will miss TCE

Hmmm time moves so fast with so much happiness my college life gonna end now.It has been a great time of life learnt a lot some amazing experiences amazing people whom i am gonna miss.I was a blank slide when i came in computers bit nervous whether i could cope or excel had a lot of aprehensions i think this college and my seniors provided me with some great passions to chase like free software among others.Thanks to one and all first of all to have made this expedition fruitful.

In the first year i was bit nervous as with most juniors caught up many times with seniors in ragging tussle and had lots of fun started with friends making with like minded people.I entered the department in second semester and i still believe it was the best of all semester for all the good reasons.

In the second year i got involved with the free software community and participated in free software related  works like GLUGot and Fstival et al.I also was part of the organizing team in cyber and other symposiums held in the department.I learnt a lot inteam work,organising things.

In third year i was selected the joint secretary of the association and lead my class in organizing Cyber 07 which stands by forth the amazing memories in my life.I had to fight some personal troubles in my third year which painted some bad wounds in my memories.

In addition to it all i was part of poster design for Fstival once,designed site for CTech a private company nad redesigned TCENET css and designed the tecuthsav site.I was part of python development in TCENEt for a short period.Plaisir gave me some oppurtunities to explore my co-curricular abilities to a greater extent.

In the final year i got placed in TCS and motorola and enjoyed throughout with many different activities from my project to floodlights cricket etc.

It was some of my great friends who supported me some have walked with me during midnight performing some painstaking work be it cyber or fstival ho made it possible.Thanks a lot will misuu you all :S.

The absurd Copyright laws in digital era

Copyright laws have been here for years now to prevent plagiarism especially in written content and works of creativity.These were gradually extended to songs,movies and other means of entertainment.With the advent of the information age the whole world is connected through the Internet.Peer-to-Peer sharing of information is the order of the day now this is posing a threat to the global monopoly and the economic order imposed by the economic strongmen.The entertainment companies are trying to revert technological development to scuffle information sharing.They consider sharing of mp3 songs,movies,videos through the internet as a violation of copyright laws.The business model adopted by these companies are not in times with the information era it just concentrates on profits rather than logic.The main argument given by these companies is that the violation of copyright hurts the creator and is an insult to creativity.The companies also argue that for every file downloaded hurts the CD sales to great extent while this is baseless as all songs downloaded would not be bought. Now in reality if a customer is made to suffer like following these idiotic procedures many would not even hear to most songs.The companies should go for alternative business models as proposed by people like Edben Mogellen like customers contributing voluntarily to the creators.Information technology connected through networks facilitate manipulation and sharing of huge data very easily.

Now why was copying say printed material is not feasible for everyone is that the technology is costly but digital technology gives us infinite copying in just a mouse click without any loss of quality.Thus applying same copyright laws defies any logic and negates the very advantage of digital revolution.In Peer-to-Peer networks data is not stored in a single server but among peer computers.Every user is making information available to others instantaneously.

Tracing people by using IP addresses and randomly suing people for copyright violation has become the order of the day.The records industry is intimidating people by threatening them through courts. The copyright laws applied to present digital technology does not make sense.

The Draconian DRM:-

The companies have come up with an assault on information freedom by the new digital rights management which prevents copying entertainment material available in a specific encrypted formats.Thus if you need a song say on your player,ipod,computer you need to buy separately for everyone of them.Now these stupidities first of all irritate customers and the DRM methods are continuously broken in the Internet thus making them ineffective.Music is not brought anymore its just rented for specific time.It is impossible to come up with a DRM system that is unbreakable.Its an assault on the culture of freedom and pushes to a permission culture.The products of our culture like music,art,movies are not available for future use and may cripple innovation affecting creators of the future generation.the DRM will lock down the culture of information and freedom.With growing number of Internet users in India i believe the entertainment industry should go in for creative business model rather than joining the bandwagon.Restricting internet users is not feasible at all as the web is too big .

Conclusion–>The global capitalists are waging a lost battle in ensuring monopoly and preventing the free flow of information which the digital era promises.These steps are highly retrograde in nature and affect technological advancements.Hope the plot is broken and Long live Freedom 🙂

FStival 07 aka Software Freedom Day.,Why use GNU/LInux

Fstival 07 celebrated in our college as part of the software freedom day celebrated all over the world was lots of fun.The stalls were visited by many inspite of vinayak chathurthi a national holiday.The stalls were really memorable especially the second years did a fine job i visited lots of stalls and learnt a lot especially Latex,GIMP,Blender which i havent tried much.We also had lots of fun in the run up to the event.

Ok i thought of ranting something totally non-technical,non-philosophical  part of using GNU/Linux.I had a strange question from someone “why don’t use windows?” I was honestly amused by this question i didnt meant to say that the source code is open stuff and all he is no way interested in those things.Leave all prejudice and think about debian in day to day stuff:

I dont suffer from viruses infecting me no “MUHAHA” saying me to use I.E.

I copied the other day a movie file sized 750mb in five minutes from my pen drive in Linux it took me more than 21 minutes in windose xp.

I have all software available for download with amazing variety dont have to care about piracy or expiry date etc.

You worry about the GUI stuff stop by my room i will show you eye-candy with Beryl COmpiz which is a feature in Debian and not the entire OS but the other day Microsoft presented Vista there was not anything other than GUI madness..madness.

I havent spoken anything technical if  you wish to hear good quality music try MPlayer,Amarok hope your ears are not loaded with prejudice.

Hmmm and how many of the microsoft passionates buy original copy of vista or windows just using pirated bullshit and speaking some crap just because some one other is using GNU/Linux is childish.

Still you wish to lick the dollar dick go ahead who cares let us see if people are forced to spend 3K for basic edition how many of them dare to do that.

If you know computer history “Microsoft is the only company that makes money out of selling just software every company sells hardware suppoted with free software”.If someone had predicted that twenty years ago that a company would make money out of just bundling software people would have laughed and made a clown out of you .
