Nice to be back! I have finally finished writing the OOJASIC compiler, and will be releasing the first alpha soon. It looks good, and works SEAMLESSLY with java! I can say that, 'cos i wrote some programs in OOJASIC using myAPI. See the OOJASIC page for more info, and some screenshots.
Looking forward to releasing this soon!

Just updated JSubFixer, after fixing some minor issues.
*Created separate version for Windows, with an extra button to play the movie file then and there.
*The 'Load', 'Save' windows now stay on top, and don't get hidden.
*Made minor changes to all the TextAreas
Might add more features soon..... or might not 8).

This is some GREAT news. The lightest cross-platform subtitle-fixing software out there on the net is now much MUCH faster, thanks to a very useful insight from a friend.
This awesome insight came during an insanely boring Basic Electrical Engg. lecture, and hence, it's much more fun, too!
The same guy even gave me some other ideas to work on, which i might in the near future.........and i still haven't been able to make the myAPI Windows resizable. Hope i find a team soon. See ya later!
PS: thank you, Vaibhav Singh!

What is up, ppl?
It's 3:30 am, and I just released a newer, more stable version of JSubFixer.
I actually had a 2-cd version of The Dark Knight, and there were no matching subtitles available. So i downloaded a single-cd subtitle file, and tried to edit it using JSubFixer........and I couldn't. So i took it upon myself to make changes to the software to achieve this task. And lo and behold! I have JSubFixer version 1.4!!!

Just figured out that i could actually upload all my files onto this site only, instead of going for web hosting services 8).
So now you can download all files from my site INSTANTANEOUSLY, and without leaving the page.
I also fixed all the bugs in JSubFixer, and uploaded the third beta version(v1.3).

It's official! I have finally released the GUI-creation tools for myAPI, with the myAPI_v2.0, though under an additional license 8). The Documentation and Tutorial can be downloaded separately.
So what are you waiting for? Visit the Downloads page, and get started!!!
[PS: The API does not support resizing of windows yet. will update when I'm done with it.]

I just ran a trial of the new myAPI GUI-tool implementation SUCCESSFULLY!!! Though I feel really elated at the mo, there are some things that will need to be taken care of. I will point some of them out for you.
1. It's SLOW!!! Takes too much time for initial loading.
2. The window cannot be resized(yet).
3. This one is not a 'problem', but still: i have tested buttons only. Still have to see if icons, labels, etc. are working or not.
That's it for today, i guess. Must get down to some serious studies now. See ya!
<EDIT>2nd March, 2011, 4:42 pm<EDIT>
Made a lot of changes to the API. Here is an update:
1. Optimized. It is no longer slow. Takes approximately the same time as Swing.
2. Resizing not yet possible :(.
3. Every component tested. Buttons, Labels, Icons, etc. all working perfectly.
Still looking for a way to support resizing. Will let you know when it is finally done.

Just ended another hour-long session of my futile attempt to create a truely IETU GUI-toolkit for myAPI. With my sessional papers just around the corner and my mind stuck on the EXTREMELY DIFFICULT-TO-USE layouts provided by AWT and Swing(going through which I have already spent 8 hours), I doubt I would be able to get good results in either of them.
Getting impatient as well. Don't remember when I last had a good nght's sleep. It's getting on my nerves now. Will work on it for 2 more days at the max after my sessionals, and if doesn't work out, seek professional help. . .or probably start a frantic search for volunteers willing to chip-in some brain-power.
Hope i get back with better news soon. Signing off,

Whenever I read an article about the .Net framework, I invariably stumble upon a comparison with Java. About an hour ago, I finally decided to write an article on the topic.
First of all, I would like to state a very important fact: Java is platform-independent. Using Java, you can create applications for Windows PCs, Apple Macs, Linux and Unix-based systems, cell-phones and other embedded systems, and even software required to run Blu-Ray discs. On the contrary, C# is a language for the Windows-platform ONLY, and is a much better choice for developers who want to stick to development on the Windows platform, which is not a bad thing considering the fact that it makes 85% of the total pc user-base.
All in all, it comes down to what platforms you are looking forward to develop for. If you want to develop software for Windows using native APIs and the insanely-easy-to-use Windows-Form approach to creating GUIs, use C#. On the other hand, if you want to develeop platform-independent software, or browser-compatible applications(Java Applets), you got it, use Java.
Moreover, there are licensing issues associated with using C#, it being proprietary software. On the other hand, Java is mostly free to use and distribute, most of it being open-source.
I would like to end this post on a funny note, with a video that i discovered only a few minutes ago. I hope you enjoyed reading this as much i liked writing it. Take care.
