Twitter. Give it a try

April 15, 2008

I’ve been using twitter the past few days and there seems to be few Maldivians using it. Now most of the people who read my blog are almost always online surfing the web and chatting and stuff, so why not ask them to check out twitter I ask myself. But not a lot of people get what twitter is all about. Let me try to explain it in my own way and if you don’t get it I’ve put in a youtube video below which explains it in plain English.

My way: Twitter is just a way to communicate with your friends and family members. Let’s say you live far apart and you’re busy with your work and you don’t have time to call your friends or family. That’s where twitter comes in. You just type in what you’re doing at the moment and everyone on your allow list would be able to see your message. Twitter can be integrated to your IM clients as well as even through your mobile phones.

Let me give you an example; the other day I was hanging out with a friend and he left my place and he was going to take a train. Later I saw that he had been stuck at the train station for almost an hour. Yeah of course, he could have messaged me and told me that, but by putting that message he’s telling his other friends where he is as well. Pretty cool me thinks.

Twitter in Plain English

The video was done by CommonCraft.com. They have a lot of videos of stuff explained in “Plain English” as well.

So if you want to give twitter a try add me on twitter.com/maail. Some of the mvbloggers are using Twitter as well.

Jason Castro – Hallelujah

March 6, 2008

I haven’t watched American Idol in years. But this year Jason is making me tune in every week to see his performances. Jeff Buckly’s Hallelujah is one of my favourite songs of all time, which is probably the same for you guys as well and you owe it to yourself to hear Jason sing it. He nails it to perfection. And you gotta love those dreads. ๐Ÿ˜‰

LoveBites,Miro,and a Torrent Auto Downloader???

March 5, 2008

Love Bites is a funny approximately 2 minute web casts kinda thing which portrays the lives of a couple who had just got together. Like I said it’s funny, hilarious in some episodes, and informative as well if your new to the whole relationships game. It’s actually an American remake of a Quebec comedy series titled Un gars, une fille which basically means “a guy, a girl”. It’s being broadcast on TBS as shorts during commercial breaks and available for download as well.

I actually discovered this when I was browsing through Miro’s (previously known as the Democracy Player) channels. Miro is a really cool program where you can download almost any video from the web IF the video is available through RSS feeds, and it does so automatically when a new episode comes out. Now don’t get so excited about this cos I know what youโ€™re thinking and no, torrents doesn’t seem to work. Which brings me to this question. Why haven’t torrent bigwigs like Mininova and PirateBay not come out with their own torrent auto downloader? I know utorrent and other torrent clients can download torrents automatically if you want to through RSS feeds and it’s not so reliable since when I want to download LOST (best show ever btw!) and it starts downloading more than one torrent file. If they did something like Miro for torrents that would be awesome. And if you guys know something like that let me know. I’m tempted to do something like that for my final year project but believe it or not (shocked :P) downloading torrents are illegal. Oh well..

So anyways download Miro. Check out the program. Word of advice, not suitable for people with bandwidth quota. Speeds are great. Direct downloads. Can download youtube videos as well, sort them out by channels, make your channels and submit them to Miro, and others can look at them as well. How cool is that???

Here’s some great channels that I would recommend to add when you have download Miro which you can download here.

The Totally Rad Show (the name says it all)

Diggnation

Tekzilla

GeekBrief

Timo’s Movie Trailers

(Note to self: The unfilled void left after the demolishing of the great Tech TV by G4! is almost being filled by Miro. I’m getting all my tech shows delivered to my doorstop.) Oh and you should know all the great shows like Diggnation, TRS and Tekzilla is brought to you by the guys who used to run the original Tech TV minus Leo Laporte and they are now known as Revision3. So check them out at Revision3.com

Message From Your Heart – Kina Grannis

January 26, 2008


This is Kina’s Superbowl video. Beautiful song. Just watch it and I’m sure you’ll get the message from her heart. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Lyricsย 

Don’t break me, I bruise easily
The source of both your love and misery

I am steady, beating endlessly
While you are dozing, dreaming pretty things
Lovely things

I don’t work for free
Please take care of me

This is a message from your heart
Your most devoted body part
Taking blood and making art
This is a message from your heart
Pounding away into the dark
You could thank me for a start
This is a message from your heart

Don’t hurt me, I bleed constantly
My efforts leave me but flow back swiftly

My rhythm, soothing, like raindrops steady
On foggy windows when you gaze outwardly
Peacefully

I don’t work for free
Please take care of me
Please take care of me

This is a message from your heart
Your most devoted body part
Taking blood and making art
This is a message from your heart
Pounding away into the dark
You could thank me for a start
This is a message from your heart

Everytime you sleep
Everytime you eat
Everytime you laugh
Everytime you cry
Every time you love

This is a message from your heart
Your most devoted body part
Taking blood and making art
This is a message from your heart
Pounding away into the dark
You could thank me for a start
This is a message from your heart
