Shiira Project

Posted by Mark

shiiraShiira is a web browser written in Cocoa. It uses the KHTML rendering engine provided by Apple’s Web Kit. Since this is the same rendering engine used by Safari, HTML content rendered by Shiira will look the same as in Apple’s own browser. Its pretty compact at only 2.5MB and has some cool features… its only 2.5MB! [Link]

Note: Mac Only

Update: Ok I have decided to make Shiira my primary browser for the next few days. So far its better then Safari and a lot quicker and lighter then FireFox. One major disadvantage is that the WordPress admin area isn’t very compatible with Shiira or Safari.

Jpeg or PNG?

Posted by Mark

I have never used the PNG format for anything. I find it useless since Jpeg and Gif do the job a lot better so I was pretty pleased to find this website that actually proves this. PNG might be better file format but the files are much much more larger then Jpeg and Gif which doesnt make it very practical. [Link]

House of Wax Out… of the Theaters

Posted by Mark

According to an email from Moe, the movie House of Wax was removed from all theaters in Kuwait by KNCC due to heavy pressure from the Ministry of Information. I have no clue why they would do this since the movie was already heavily cut, maybe Paris HIlton is just banned in Kuwait.

Review: Manicotti

Posted by Mark

The Healthy Choice, as soon as I saw this in the Freezer I had to get it. Microwavable food that is healthy? Great! This meal seemed like a perfect choice for vegetarians or cheese lovers, its Manicotti, which is Ricotta, Mozzarella, Parmesan and Romano cheese filled pasta in herbed tomato sauce.

I took it out of the pack for dinner and heated it up. Like most microwavable meals the process is usually a 2 step, you heat for a few minutes, take out your meal, stir it up a bit, then put it back in for a few more minutes. This meal was no different and after a few minutes in the microwave it was done.

The first thing that I noticed was the smell, for a few minutes my kitchen smelled as if my wife could cook. The second thing I noticed was the looks, I am never going to get over the fact at how pictures on packages differ from the actual product. It still amazes me every fucking time!! It once again looks absolutely nothing like in the picture, if this was a match the box to the meal game I would lose. I took a bite and I have to say, the sauce is pretty good, but the actual cheese roll was tasteless. It also only had 2 rolls inside and for the price it cost me KD1.250 I would expect at-least double that. In the end I had to give it a score of 2.5 out of 5. There is nothing special about it, its over priced and it didn’t look appetizing. I wouldn’t buy it again.

Apple Intel Dev Systems

Posted by Mark

“It’s fast,” said one developer source of Mac OS X running on Intel’s Pentium processors. “Faster than [Mac OS X] on my Dual 2GHz Power Mac G5.” In addition to booting Windows XP at blazing speeds, the included version of Mac OS X for Intel takes “as little as 10 seconds” to boot to the Desktop from when the Apple logo first displays on screen.
