A Christmas card gone wrong

Christmas cards should be joyfull, fun, nostalgic, full of snow or anything related that would bring a smile on the receiver's face. However, I don't know what would a parent feel if they would receive a Christmas card like this one: Don't Forget The Fucking Cookies!

It's a Christmas card set created and sold in The Onion (R) store, and it should be targeted for people that "don't send holiday cards". In case the image on their store isn't clear enough,  here's one closeup that they used to advertise via Google Adwords:

imgad

The advertisement image is just wrong, because it's a child in his bed with a gun pipe in his mouth. You can't see in the advertisement, but at the end of the gun is Santa. I'm not a parent but I still find this image quite disturbing, and even more disturbing is that this Christmas card set is on their bestseller list on the 11th position. I know that shocking things sell sometime, but for me this is just wrong, make fun of Santa, of Rudolf, the parent or anything else, but don't put a gun in a child's mouth.

Send free sms worldwide via Wadja

Want to send free sms to India, Pakistan, UK? Or sms a friend in Dubai, Usa, Sri Lanka or Romania? Well, if for some of these countries it's quite easy to find a free sms service (like USA), for others is very, very frustrating to keep looking for something that really works (try finding a reliable free sms service to Romania). Or at least it's frustrating if you're searching the wrong way. I started my search normally, googling for things like "free sms to" and the name of the country I was interested in, and after sending my "good thoughts" to a bunch of webmasters that trick you into visiting a page just to show advertisements instead of providing a solution, I've found my answer, Wadja.com



Wadja is a mobile social netwok, that lets its users to communicate via free sms, email and mobile web messaging. Wadja also lets you upload photos, video and audio files, and also lets you manage your friends list and interact with them. Of course that I wasn't really interested into social mobile network (or mobile social network, or whatever would be the correct description for it), but I was interested in sending sms. So I went to their home page Wadja.com and created an account. After that if you want to send sms file you have to validate your phone number. Once you validate the phone number, you'll receive a code that you need to punch into wadja and bham, you're hit by a car. Kidding. Bham, you've activated your phone and now you can send free sms worldwide.

free-sms

A couple of things about Wadja's free sms service:

  • it's limited to 90 characters
  • if you send mobile spam, hateful or abusive sms you'll be banned (fair enough, find another way to trash GW)
  • at the bottom of your sms the receiver also sees a small advertisement, such as "www.wadja.com/spuby FREE SMS www.wadja.com" (of course with the link to your profile page); this shouldn't bother the recipient though
  • If you're sending a free SMS to a person that's not a member of Wadja, you'll receive an "Daily limit reached to the same number outside Wadja" error message if you want to send more than 7 messages per day. Bummer. Anyway, it also seems they let you send photos via sms (mms)
  • each time an sms is freely delivered you'll receive an email in the inbox from wadja

I tested it for a couple of days and the sms messages were sent quite fast (less than a minute) to a mobile network in Romania. Wadja has its headquarters in Greece, so I'm not sure what's the delivery time for countries a bit far (such as India, USA) but I bet it's not that bad.

They also have a paid sms service, where you can send batch sms emails (to several friends at once) and it can have up to 150 characters. But for me, the need to send now and then a free sms to someone is fully satisfied by Wadja. I hope they keep it free.

[Update] Well a bit of more testing and I've found out that there is actually a daily limit of free SMS messages you can send. If the person you're sending to is not a member of Wadja.com (so it doesn't show in your friends list) you cannot send more than 7 free sms messages. They mention on the forum actually that you cannot send more than 3 free sms messages to the same person outside of the Wadja network, and 5 free sms messages per day in total, but actually I got this error only at the 8th daily sms "Daily limit reached to the same number outside Wadja".

Anyway, want to know if your network is supported by Wadja and if you are able to send an free sms to a mobile in your country? If you want to spear yourself from creating the account and finding out only after that if it's supported, just use the search button on this page and look below to see what mobile networks are supported. This SMS coverage information is copied directly from the Wadja account and beside naming the network it also says the prefix you'll need to use to send an sms to that country.

Fantastic contraption, an addictive flash game

I don't have many memories from my early computing experiences, but I remember clearly that I spent a lot of time being captivated and playing The Incredible Machine, a game (actually a series of games) where you had to arrange all kind of objects (ropes, generators, bowling balls, animals, ... ) for the purpose of completing a simple task, such as lighting a candle or moving an object into a box. Those were the days where MS-DOS was the platform for such games, but now a simple flash game where you don't have to install anything does the same thing (actually much better) than what MS-DOS allowed. This is the case of Fantastic Contraption, a fun flash game where you have to arrange some objects (unlike The Incredible Machine in here you only have three types of wheels and two types of rods) in order to move one wheel from one box to another.

fantastic-contraption

Think this is easy? Well, even if this game looks like it's designed for 5-year old ones, it will actually make your brain spin faster trying to put that DAMN pink wheel in the box (I'm calm now, just that one of the levels gave me some headaches). Anyway, go ahead and try it for yourself, it made me a little melancholic thinking about my youth and how back then I had a more trained brain than now ...

Create multiple folders at once in Total Commander

One of my favorite old-time programs is Total Commander. I don't know if it needs any introduction, but just in case for those that don't know it, it's a file manager for Windows designed to replace Windows Explorer. Over time it got so popular with so many add-ons being developed, that the only thing I wonder about is why hasn't Microsoft bought this excellent Windows Explorer replacement from Christian Ghisler, its developer? I mean Microsoft did buy in the past Sysinternals, from where probably uses some ideas in Windows Vista (or will use in Windows 7) (Process explorer as an example). Maybe they can't afford it ;).

Anyway, what I like best about Total Commander is that from time to time I discover a trick about it that it's just plain useful. What I discovered recently is that you can create a series of folders in a single action. And it's very simple:

  • Open Total Commander (duh!) and browse to the folder where you want to batch-create the folders
  • Press F7 and write the name of the first folder you want created, followed by /, then the name of the second folder followed by /, the name of the third, ... you get the picture (and if not, below is a screen)

total-commander-tip

  • When you press OK Total Commander will batch-create these folders in the order that you wrote them, the next one being the sub-folder of the first - given the example above, this is how the folder/sub-folder structure of the batch operation would look like

tc-tip2

Good tip, isn't it? Ok, maybe I got a little carried away because I discovered it without reading about it somewhere first and like a house-cat that brings home every little dead thing it finds just to show to its master it did something I blogged about, but still, it is an useful tip ... I think (a pat on the back, anyone!).

Obama, the president

The web exploded today. Google News shows only on its main news page about 18000 articles on Obama for the past hours, Google Blog Search shows as top stories only blog posts about Obama, not to mention a gazillion other articles you could find through other channels. The web exploded for a reason, today America proved that it's truly the country where anything is possible, an excellent example of how a true democracy should look like. For the first time in its history, America has a black president. It's amazing because about 45 years ago Martin Luther King was having his inspirational speech regarding the Emancipation Proclamation. It might seem a long time for an individual, but it's a short period for a country.

Obama

I'm not American (as my English proves it) but I wanted Obama to win. If Obama's presidential skills are at least 10% of what his oratorical skills are, then America has a president ten times better than Bush. I listened to the Barack Obama Presidential Victory Speech, and even if I am not an American, I felt that I'm close to crying. The atmosphere, his human nature, his parenting side, his words - everything just fits together better than in many movies leading you towards tears. It's really amazing. Maybe because he's saying the truth about this. I wish him the power to put America on the right track again, because if America sneezes, Europe dies of fever.

McCain and the other future candidates have to learn something out of this. Obama won the internet world first, because the most percentage of Obama voters by age (compared to McCain's) was for the 18-29 segment (see CNN's exit poll). And in this segment of age are the most internet users too. This is why on every social interaction website Obama was viewed as the right choice, while McCain & Palin were criticized for every move they made. Interesting from that poll is that more women chose Obama than men, even if McCain had Palin on his side. Anyway, my opinion is that "he who owns the Internet shall rule the world" - maybe not literally.

I only wish there would be a candidate in my country that I could admire at least half as I admire Obama. His views (nicely put up together on votehelp.org) on several important issues match mine, and as the results show they matched at least with those of at least 56 million Americans:

  • Withdrawal from Iraq - Obama will reduce the number of troops in Iraq and proposed a phased withdrawal of all troops. A peacemaker, not like McCain who wanted to increase the number of troops.
  • Education Funding - Obama wants to increase funding for education (brining in new teachers, improving access to technology, ...), where McCain didn't want to increase funding.
  • Minimum Wage - Obama supported bills to increase the minimum wage, so this will probably happen in the near future. McCain didn't.
  • Abortion - Obama is pro-abortion, McCain is anti-abortion (sure Palin had something to do with).
  • Drug Policy - Well, in here both candidates voted against the legal use of marijuana. No one is perfect :).
  • Corporate Subsidies - Obama wants to reduce the tax for 90% of Americans, while increasing it for large corporations. McCain wanted to reduce the taxes for large corporations, for fear of "moving offshore".
  • Aggressive Foreign Policy - With this, both candidates seem to be on the same side meaning they would continue co-operating with other countries to "meet common challenges such as terrorism".
  • Immigration Enforcement - Both candidates want to reduce illegal immigration. As a non-american I would like to see my country added on the visa-waiver program, so I could visit America without waiting 6 months for the possibility of getting a travel visa.
  • Environment Regulation - Obama seems to be on the right track, meaning he will provide help to ensure America meets better environment regulations (and what Bush ignored until now).

We will see how things go over time. I see Obama's victory as the victory of every American. And if America does better and the dollar is strong, us, non-americans, live better too. Yes, you can and you will.

Auto shutdown computer after playing a movie

I use Windows XP Professional (and won't be upgrading anytime soon to Vista), but I've always thought that maybe the Media Center edition of Windows would be more suitable for me. Anyway, my desk is in front of my bed, about 3 meters from it, and from time to time I like to watch a movie before going to sleep. So, I start the movie, crawl in my bed and watch it. By the time it finishes, or after about 15 minutes if the movie is really "good" such as one starring Paris Hilton, I'm half asleep and I have to gather all my powers to walk to the desk and stop the computer.

I always said that "I'll have to find a solution to auto shutdown the computer after the movie plays" but forgot about this. Since my computer crashed recently, when I got to the part where I had to install my favorite movie player, mplayer, I thought that it's a good timing to search for a replacement, the magic movie player that will shut down the computer after it plays a movie (or a list of movies). I didn't have to search too much, since there are some free movie players with this option.

After testing some of them, I ended using GOM Player, just because you install it and it's ready to play (comes with a bunch of codecs too) without installing anything else. To have it shutdown your computer after it plays a file or a list of files, follow these steps:

  • first of all, you have to install it, and you can do so by downloading it here: GOM Player
  • once installed, it will guide you through some basic profile settings (language, default playing mode) which you can just leave as default
  • after you see the main window, simply right-click on it and go to Options, select Shutdown once finished playing the current file (or the files in the playlist). This option will remain enabled each time, so make sure you remember to uncheck it when you don't want to have your computer shut down.

GOM-Player

That's it, not too difficult, and best of all is free. Of course there are other free movie players that include this feature to auto shutdown the computer after the movies finish playing. Here's some of the most known:

  • jetAudio, basic is free, closed source
  • Media Player Classic, free, open source
  • The KMPlayer, free but closed source
  • I'm adding VLC here too, because it's a very popular open source movie player, though I don't know for sure if it supports or not shutting down the computer after the movie is played. In their trac list, there's the auto shutdown feature added and they say it's not yet done, but it seems that previous versions do support this feature.
