I received my Ubuntu Shipit :D

Hiiiiiii :D,

Finally I received my Shipit order for 55 Ubuntu CDs to Damascus, Syria at 21-12-2005 πŸ˜€
35 CDs for PC, 10 CDs for 64 bit PC, and 5 CDs for MAC.

The package came from Holand πŸ™‚

I received it after struggling with the customs department and the supervision department πŸ˜• … and they made me pay ~$60 customs πŸ™ .. it’s ok … I’m Happy πŸ˜€
So if any body around and want a copy tell me.

I already started giving some copies to my co-workers and relatives:)

These are some pics of the package :P:

Beagle – Google Desktop rival in Linux world

If you are moving to Linux or already have Linux and you saw the power of Google Desktop, you’re going to love Beagle.

Beagle is a tool for indexing and searching your data. Beagle is improving
rapidly on many fronts, and should work well enough for everyday use.

The Beagle daemon transparently monitors your data and updates the index
to reflect any changes. On an inotify-enabled system, these updates happen
more-or-less in real time. So for example,

* Files are immediately indexed when they are created, are re-indexed
when they are modified, and are dropped from the index upon
* E-mails are indexed upon arrival.

* IM conversations are indexed as you chat, a line at a time.
Have a nice day,

Windows Vista in seven Flavors

It took long time until Windows Vista showed up, and that’s because you’re going to get Windows Vista in seven flavors!

  • Starter Edition:

Which is like the old XP Starter Edition. It comes with the very basics like basic TCP/IP networking and won’t be suitable for most of games. This Edition is aimed at the Thirds World!

  • Home Basic Edition:

This Edition is very much like the current Windows XP Home. So if there is a Basic Edition there will be probably Home Premium Edition.

  • Home Premium Edition:

This is where the Basic and Premium Edition starts to split features. Home Premium Edition will build on the Basic Edition by adding, most notably, the next-generation of Media Center capabilities, including support for HDTV, DVD authoring, and even DVD ripping backed up (of course) by Windows DRM. For non-corporate types, this is probably going to be the OS that most people use. It’s similar to XP Pro in power, but with all of the added bells and whistles for entertainment. Well, most of them.

  • Professional Edition:

It won’t be like the current XP Pro, because this time it is truly aimed at businesses. Provide the kind of functionality you’d expect in a business environment, such as support for non-Microsoft networking protocols and Domain support.

  • Small Business Edition and an Enterprise Edition:

Which build upon Pro Edition by adding (seemingly minor) features aimed at appealing to each market. Small Business Edition, for instance, includes a networked backup solution, while Enterprise Edition will include things like Virtual PC integration, and the ability to encrypt an entire volume of information.

  • Ultimate Edition:

Windows Vista Ultimate Edition is a superset of both Vista Home Premium and Vista Pro Edition, so it includes all of the features of both of those product versions, plus adds Game Performance Tweaker with integrated gaming experiences, a Podcast creation utility (under consideration, may be cut from product), and online “Club” services (exclusive access to music, movies, services and preferred customer care) and other offerings (also under consideration, may be cut from product). Microsoft is still investigating how to position its most impressive Windows release yet, and is looking into offering Ultimate Edition owners such services as extended A1 subscriptions, free music downloads, free movie downloads, Online Spotlight and entertainment software, preferred product support, and custom themes. There is nothing like Vista Ultimate Edition today. This version is aimed at high-end PC users and technology influencer, gamers, digital media enthusiasts, and students.

What’s still not known is the price list, so let’s wait and see.

MSX on the mobile ?!


I’ve been running MSX on my Nokia 6600 ( It works on other mobiles ) for a few months now, and a lot of people asked me how I did it, so I’m writing it here just in case you don’t how. Trust me you will enjoy it πŸ™‚ it is so much more fun than new mobile games.

If you don’t know what is MSX let me try to remind you πŸ™‚ Don’t you remember that old Keyboard where you connect a recorder to it and inserts Tapes to play games, and some times Catridges. In the Arab world there is a company called Sakhr which made an Arabic version of it, so we used to call it Sakhr. I think now you remember it πŸ™‚

The way it works is by installing an emulator designed by Juha RiihimΓ€ki.

You just need a couple of softwares to be ready.

These are the packages:

  • version 1.07a, intended for Nokia 3600/3620/3650/3660/7650/N-Gageβ„’/N-Gageβ„’ QD, Sendo X and Siemens SX-1, or
  • version 1.07b, intended for Nokia 3230/6260/6600/6620/6630/6670/7610 and Panasonic X700.
    Download PC tool set for creating install packages from system ROM and cartridge ROM images.
  • The next thing you need to do is to find the ROM files throgh the Internet (Hint: Google πŸ™‚ ) and use the PC Tool to creat the install package that you will send it to your mobile, and you’re ready to enjoy the old games πŸ™‚

    That’s not all, you can also run MSX on all Operating Systems such as MAC, Windows, etc ….

    Look at this page for all the MSX emulators:

    And on top of all, it is Open Source πŸ™‚

    Hope you liked it.
    And if you have any questions I’m ready help.
