Hey, it has been a while since I last posted something here on this blog. I have been busy with building my calculator/converter for iPad called Calculator Alpha. I uploaded it to Apple for review, so probably it will be up there on the App Store in couple of days (or maybe a week). It is going to be free and I think it will be competitive with other calculators out there for the iPad.
I was also busy building a website for my basketball team here in Slovenia. It is now live at http://www.kdjezica.com. It is build on WordPress blogging platform (like this one here, but is hosted on it’s own server). Hopefully we will keep it up to date so everyone will be able to follow what is going on with our basketball team.
On kdjezica.com we will represent all the teams that are part of KD Ježica, from the men’s team that plays in the second Slovenian league (which I am part of) to the youngest members of our club.
Everyday, when I wake up, I seem to be going to the same sites over and over again, first a stop to nba.com, then to mashable and to digg and then maybe to inc or xkcd comics. Since I visit these sites almost religiously I developed a web tool that allows me to add those sites, and then with simple buttons on the top of the page navigate them (clicking either Next or Previous). Since I would like to share this tool with everyone I am giving an url below:
When you visit the page above, you are greeted with a login screen seen on the figure below. You can either login with the provided credentials (username:demo, password:demo), or you can create your own login by clicking the link above the username field.
When you login you can add sites that you would like to browse, using the WebPageSurfer. Here you can add or delete websites. One thing to note is that the script is not trying to prevent sites that do not want to be “framed” to do so. There are not frame busting busters for example. The sites like that include twitter.com and nytimes.com for example.
. The second screen is seen on the figure below.
The next thing is to use the actual WebPageSurfer, you can do that either by clicling Go to your surfer on the top of your admin page or by going to http://www.tdteam.com/webpagesurfer/surfer.php.
When you get to the WebPageSurfer page you can see a little bar at the top, with the Previous and Next Buttons, meaning you will be going to the next or the previous web site from your login. In the middle of the bar is URL of the site and on the right is the link to admin area and option to remove the frame.
Tell me what you think about the application…
Last night while I was doing some browsing in the web, I came across an interesting site called flippa.com. The idea behind flippa is that you can try to sell your site or even your business, on the other hand since there are sellers out there you can buy and get a website you like.
Let’s see what flippa says about itself: Flippa: The #1 Marketplace for Buying and Selling Websites and Domains.
It is a cool idea and just by browsing around you can get a sense of things that people are selling and buying. One interesting section just sold seciton, where you can see projects, webpages and businesses that have been sold most recently.
One other site that I found recently and that I find useful, is startups.com. It is build on the same platform as stackoverflow.com (a site where programmers ask all kinds of questions). On statups.com people post all sorts of questions regarding startups, business, marketing, entrepreneurship and so on. Just by reading through the questions and answers you can gain lot’s of valuable information about the subject of startups. Highly recommended.
