PDA plugin with iPhone support

Today I upgraded my blog to latest WordPress 2.5. You have no idea what they have done to the WordPress. It is really great and lovely. I really like the new interface and media manager integration. Most of the functionalities what my organizer plugin did is of no use now. Thanks to WordPress team 🙂

After a very long time I sat down and update the pda plugin. While doing so I got little greedy and tried to add a simple iPhone theme to it. It is far away from beta version. Still lot more to go. I am still finding a best method to do the plugin with nice ajax features and animation what iPhone would support. Still far more to go on the theme. For a 4 hours of work it works pretty well. I know what are all the bugs in it but I will try to mend it and release a new version end of next week.

wp-pda plugin is now fully compactible with latest WordPress 2.5. I would like to get feedback from you all. Thanks for supporting the plugin so far 🙂

You can download the plugin from here.

Me and my friend Yogesh wanted to try something totally new. We decided to shave our head. In the course action my cousin Riyaz came in between and got his head too shaved. You can see how sad he is 😀 . One important highlight of the event is, Riyaz is doing it for the first time.

More crazy updates to follow 😉 ,,,,

Google Adsense Ad Pagination

Google Adsense Ad Pagination

Today I noticed in my blog Google Adsense unit two arrows.  Out of curiostity I went and click on it. It was nothing but pagination for that ad unit. Some keywords has too many ads so Google wants the end user to select from different pages and click on it 😉

Facts to know when driving in Dubai

Facts to know when driving in Dubai

  1. If your road map is more than a few weeks old throw it out and get a new one.
  2. If you are in Rashidiya and your map is one day old, then it is already obsolete.
  3. Forget the traffic rules you learned elsewhere. Dubai has its own version of traffic rules, which can be summarized as ‘Hold on and pray!’
  4. If it is your priority to cross, forget it and wait.
  5. There is no such thing as a dangerous high-speed chase in Dubai. Everyone drives like that.
  6. When you plan to get a new car, ask first about its acceleration from 80 to 160 Km/h (recommended: 3 seconds). Very important if you frequently use the Emirates Road.
  7. All directions start with Sheikh Zayed Road, which has no beginning and no end.
  8. The morning rush hour is from 5:00 AM to 1:00 PM. The evening rush hour is from 1:00 PM to 10:00 PM.
  9. Thursday’s rush hour starts Wednesday evening.
  10. If you slow down at a yellow light, you will be knocked behind by another motorist and then awarded a white ticket by the Dubai Police.
  11. If you are the first one at the intersection when the light turns green, ignore the car honking behind you and count to five to avoid crashing into one of the cars jumping the red light.
  12. Construction on all main roads is a way of life and a permanent form of entertainment.’Sorry for the inconvenience’ is an honor for your long-suffering
  13. All unfamiliar sights are explained by the phrase, ‘Oh, we must be in Sharjah !’
  14. Car horns are actually toys for Adults.
  15. Anyone in a Land Cruiser, Armada, Tahoe, Dodge, BMW or Mercedes with less than 5 digits in their number plate and tinted windows, has the right of way.
  16. If you are driving a Corolla, Sunny, or another small Japanese car, stay on the far right lane. No comment!
  17. Most roads mysteriously change names as you cross underneath intersections or bridges.
  18. To ask directions, you must have good knowledge of Hindi/ Malayalam/English.
  19. A trip across town will take a minimum of four hours, although Sheikh Zayed Road has an un-postered minimum speed of 150 Km/ hr.
  20. It is sobering to realise that local Arabs are taught how to drive by Malayalees.
  21. 18 wheeler trucks are one of the fastest vehicles in Dubai; they can do 120 Km/h on Hatta-Oman Road when fully loaded.
  22. The minimum acceptable speed on the Emirates Road is 160 km/h. Anything less is considered downright sissy.
  23. Al Khail Road is Dubai’s daily version of NASCAR.
  24. Dubai Autodrome has a new extension: The Emirates Road.

Welcome to Dubai 🙂
