I found a nice article on java.net about blackberry application development. Next time I got nothing else to todo (which wont be within the next six months) I will have to write a small application for my device.
Since I switched from my SonyEricsson P910i to a Blackberry 7290 a year ago I missed my password safe. On the P910i I was using Handy Safe because it had a desktop part that allowed me to sync it with my PC.
The password safe RIM provides for Blackberries could not be synchronized with the PC and so I was searching for another one. Finally I found it:MiniSafe for Blackberry – it allows me to define categories and types, has a built in password generator and I can synchronize it with my PC. The only thing missing is a password generator that generates pronounceable password like apg does. I really love these passwords, after typing them in three times you remember them.
Another nice little freeware application that I am running on my Blackberry is BBLight from BlackBerryTools. It switches on the light of my Blackberry every time I press any key – like on “normal” mobile phones
Today I googled for a program to convert ogg vorbis audio files into mp3 files – because my car player can’t play ogg files. I found hundreds of shareware programs with ugly UI’s and bad encoders.
At last I found a real cool one at www.rarewares.org – LameDropXPd did exactly what I wanted:
- Let me drop in the ogg’s,
- converted it using the best mp3 encoder – lame (IMHO),
- tagged it and
- saved it in the correct folder
Today we found a very funny site: www.angryalien.com – ever saw Pulp Fiction in 30 seconds?
I decided to move to WordPress.com – why? Because www.jroller.com was to slooow, and sometimes unavailable.
Too bad for my google rank
