    GOOGLE:

    One of my favorite desktop calling app Gizmo5 is no longer served. Does this mean we cannot use Gizmo5 anymore.

    What is Google doing with Gizmo5?

    Below is the email I recieved from Gizmo5:

    Hello, Gizmo5 is writing to let you know that we will no longer be providing service starting on April 3, 2011. A week from today, March 11, 2011, you will no longer be able to add credit to your account.

    Although the standalone Gizmo5 client will no longer be available, we have since launched the ability to call phones from within Gmailat even more affordable rates.

    Thank you,

    The Gizmo5 Team

    You have received this mandatory service announcement email to update you about important changes to your Gizmo5 account.

    In the last couple of months Twitter has become a sort of internet sensation among netizens. Everyone tweets, be it Celebrities, Developers or Websites, bumping up the number of followers seems to be the latest trend. Keeping up with the trends there has been an explosion of sorts in the Twitter clients. Every developer want to write a twitter client! Today’s article will look into  some of my favorite Twitter Clients for Mac.

    While it is nothing wrong to tweet directly from a browser, nothing matches to the comfort of having a seperate app manage all our Tweets. Thanks to the recent explosion of apps for Twitter, we now have a lot of options to choose from.

    Wouldn’t it be nice if you had the ability to tweet the updates of your blog to all your followers without having to open a seperate client while you were still browsing a webpage on Safari ? Safari140 does just that! Safari140 doesn’t qualify as Twitter client but its more like a plug in of sorts for Safari. Just install Safari140, restart Safari and you are ready to tweet.

    All you need to do is press Ctrl + T and a pop up will open asking you to sign in to twitter. Sign in once and start sending updates just by pressing Ctrl + T right from Safari. I find it very useful and hence the mention.

    Download Safari140 .

    Bluebird is a very cool looking Twitter client in its beta stage. It has a clean interface and supports multiple accounts. Its got the ability to theme the client and a lot of great looking themes are already available for download. One great feature of Bluebird is threaded Direct Messaging. Bluebird supports Growl notifications and its got sound alerts too with the ability to set different sound alerts. Sadly though it doesn’t integrate an image hosting and url shrinking service.

    Download Bluebird .

    Nambu is one of my favorite twitter clients and is in beta stage. Nambu is the big daddy of features and UI design. Its got several sections, my favorite is the People section on the left sidebar. Clicking on People will bring up a grid view (like in iTunes) of all your friends and their followers. Double click any thumbnail and you get a lot of information about your friends. Another neat feature is Groups, which allow you to group your friends in seperate channels making it easy for you to follow their updates.

    Nambu Network integrates URL shrinking and image hosting services with Tr.im and Pic.im. There is a seperate section for this in the sidebar which lets you keep a track on all the links and images you’ve uploaded. Nambu has loads of features and one must try it out to know what it is capable of.

    Download Nambu .

    Tweetie for Mac arrived after Tweetie for iPhone was hugely successful and just like its iPhone counterpart, Tweetie for Mac is simply put ‘Amazing’. Tweetie has by far the best and the coolest interface. Unlike Nambu which is loaded with features, Tweetie concentrates on usability with simple yet stylish interface. New tweet windows has been detached, i.e to post a new tweet, you have to press Cmd + N and a small new tweet windows pops up. Type in your line and hit post, you can also choose to use a different account to post the tweet by using a button on new tweet window.

    Tweetie integrates with several image hosting and url shrinking services, the coolest feature is you can simply drag an image in the new tweet window and its uploaded to an image hosting service, hit the post button and its posted as your tweet!!

    Download Tweetie .

    Some other Twitter clients that have not been mentioned here are EventBox, Lounge, Twitterrific, Canary etc. These clients deserve special mention as several Mac users prefer to use these clients as opposed to my favorite list of clients. Like I said there are several clients and your taste may differ from mine, so try out for yourselves

    This article was an introduction to my favorite Twitter clients on Mac, next time I may cover some more as my favorite list grows.In the mean time tell us about your favorite Twitter client.

    Well, here is a small SQL query that does the trick for you.

    SELECT TABLE_NAME,COLUMN_NAME FROM USER_TAB_COLUMNS WHERE COLUMN_NAME like ‘%customer_id%’;

    Replace the “customer_id” with the text that you would like to search for.

    This works for a Oracle Database. I haven’t tried this with MySQL.

    You know what some linux users miss in the Windows command prompt. It’s auto-completion of file names. In Linux, if you want the file name to be auto-complete, press “TAB” key.

    The same thing can be achieved in Windows command prompt with an additional feature. If you keep hitting the “TAB” key, it will give you let you browse through all the directory and file names in the directory that you are in.

    In Windows XP, the auto-complete option is disabled. You can enable this in 2 ways.

    To use the Power Toys -> Tweak UI application provided for free by Microsoft. Tweak UI is a must have application which not only lets you enable Auto-complete but also various other tweaks to your Windows machine which otherwise would have to modified in the Windows Registry.You can

    the Tweak UI application from Microsoft’s website.After installing the application, open Tweak UI.

    As shown in the picture above, select the “Command Prompt” option. There are two options for you to choose. You can enable auto-completion of both File and Directory names. You can either choose what keys you want to use for the auto-completion.  I would recommend using a “TAB” key because you will feel native even when you use Linux command line.

    The other way to enable auto-complete is to modify the Windows Registry. You can find a Knowledge base article in the Microsoft webiste .

    The best key logger application on a windows machine would be keystroke spy. This is a small windows application which will not be viewable in the windows task manager.

    You can download this software from the link below.

    After you build your new Windows PC, you may have tried to access that new PC from another computer in your home network. Even though everything seems to be correct you might not even be able to ping the PC.

    You can run the “ipconfig” command to verify if the machine got an IP address.

    After you build your new Windows PC, you may have tried to access that new PC from another computer in your home network. Even though everything seems to be correct you might not even be able to ping the PC.

    You can run the “ipconfig” command to verify if the machine got an IP address.

    C:>ipconfig

    Ethernet adapter Wireless Network Connection 2:          Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . :

    IP Address. . .  . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.2

    Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0

    Default Gateway. . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1

    Try doing a ping to any other computer in the network. If you are able to ping from your machine to another machine but not vice-versa, then it may be because of the Firewall. By default on a newly installed machine, Windows turns on the Firewall. This may be a reason why you might not be able to access the PC.

    Open the Windows firewall window by doing the following:

    Start –> Run –> firewall.cpl

    Try turning off the firewall. You can re-enable the firewall if you need later. I recommend you to turn off the firewall until you figure out what the problem is.

    Now try doing a “PING” to the PC from any other machine. You should now be able to access the PC.

    Now you can either leave the firewall open on your PC if you are on a home network because you will already be behind a router which keeps you safe from the outside world. If you still want to you can turn on the firewall with adding some exceptions to this.

    I’m sure you been in a situation, where you had to connect to both wireless and wired network on a windows PC. If the wired network is connected to your internal network which doesn’t have internet connectivity, then you are stuck. This is because Windows OS sets the default gateway to the wired network. Below is the command to change the default gateway to wireless networks.

    To add default route with the default gateway address of 10.2.3.1, use the below command:

    C:>ROUTE ADD 0.0.0.0 MASK 0.0.0.0 10.2.3.1

    To make any route persistent after the reboots, you can add ‘-P’ argument to the route command.

    Below are some more commands for your reference:

    To print the Route information

    C:>ROUTE PRINT

    To add a route with 10.5.1.* traffic going to 10.2.3.1 gateway

    C:>ROUTE ADD 10.5.1.0 MASK 255.0.0.0 10.2.3.1

    To change the existing route of 10.5.1.* traffic to go to 10.5.1.1 gateway

    C:>ROUTE CHANGE 10.5.1.0 MASK 255.0.0.0 10.5.1.1

    You know what some linux users miss in the Windows command prompt. It’s auto-completion of file names. In Linux, if you want the file name to be auto-complete, press “TAB” key.

    You know what some linux users miss in the Windows command prompt. It’s auto-completion of file names. In Linux, if you want the file name to be auto-complete, press “TAB” key.

    The same thing can be achieved in Windows command prompt with an additional feature. If you keep hitting the “TAB” key, it will give you let you browse through all the directory and file names in the directory that you are in.

    In Windows XP, the auto-complete option is disabled. You can enable this in 2 ways.

    To use the Power Toys -> Tweak UI application provided for free by Microsoft. Tweak UI is a must have application which not only lets you enable Auto-complete but also various other tweaks to your Windows machine which otherwise would have to modified in the Windows Registry.You can

    the Tweak UI application from Microsoft’s website.After installing the application, open Tweak UI.

    As shown in the picture above, select the “Command Prompt” option. There are two options for you to choose. You can enable auto-completion of both File and Directory names. You can either choose what keys you want to use for the auto-completion.  I would recommend using a “TAB” key because you will feel native even when you use Linux command line.

    The other way to enable auto-complete is to modify the Windows Registry. You can find a Knowledge base article in the Microsoft webiste .

    The best key logger application on a windows machine would be keystroke spy. This is a small windows application which will not be viewable in the windows task manager.

    You can download this software from the link below.

    Before installing the application, you should turn off your anti-virus application.

    I’m currently testing this application and more reviews in future posts on how to use it and how to uninstall it.

    Cannot access Windows PC in the home network.

    After you build your new Windows PC, you may have tried to access that new PC from another computer in your home network. Even though everything seems to be correct you might not even be able to ping the PC.

    After you build your new Windows PC, you may have tried to access that new PC from another computer in your home network. Even though everything seems to be correct you might not even be able to ping the PC.

    You can run the “ipconfig” command to verify if the machine got an IP address.

    C:>ipconfig

    Ethernet adapter Wireless Network Connection 2:          Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . :

    IP Address. . .  . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.2

    Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0

    Default Gateway. . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1

    Try doing a ping to any other computer in the network. If you are able to ping from your machine to another machine but not vice-versa, then it may be because of the Firewall. By default on a newly installed machine, Windows turns on the Firewall. This may be a reason why you might not be able to access the PC.

    Open the Windows firewall window by doing the following:

    Start –> Run –> firewall.cpl

    Try turning off the firewall. You can re-enable the firewall if you need later. I recommend you to turn off the firewall until you figure out what the problem is.

    Now try doing a “PING” to the PC from any other machine. You should now be able to access the PC.

    Now you can either leave the firewall open on your PC if you are on a home network because you will already be behind a router which keeps you safe from the outside world. If you still want to you can turn on the firewall with adding some exceptions to this.

    I’m sure you been in a situation, where you had to connect to both wireless and wired network on a windows PC. If the wired network is connected to your internal network which doesn’t have internet connectivity, then you are stuck. This is because Windows OS sets the default gateway to the wired network. Below is the command to change the default gateway to wireless networks.

    To add default route with the default gateway address of 10.2.3.1, use the below command:

    C:>ROUTE ADD 0.0.0.0 MASK 0.0.0.0 10.2.3.1

    To make any route persistent after the reboots, you can add ‘-P’ argument to the route command.

    Below are some more commands for your reference:

    To print the Route information

    C:>ROUTE PRINT

    To add a route with 10.5.1.* traffic going to 10.2.3.1 gateway

    C:>ROUTE ADD 10.5.1.0 MASK 255.0.0.0 10.2.3.1

    To change the existing route of 10.5.1.* traffic to go to 10.5.1.1 gateway

    C:>ROUTE CHANGE 10.5.1.0 MASK 255.0.0.0 10.5.1.1
