XnView is my favourite image browser. Free and rich features. Can see slideshows, convert file formats, browse the directory. I prefer to use image browser rather than photo manager.

XnView also works on Linux. But installing XnView in Ubuntu is troublesome, because we need to remove manually if want to uninstall the package.

However, installing XnView in Arch Linux is easy, using AUR, no problem for uninstallation. But to run XnView in Arch Linux, make sure the xorg-fonts-100dpi package is also installed, and add FontPath to xorg.conf.


Deluge: Bittorrent client for Linux

Once I was using Transmission as the bittorrent client when using Ubuntu. But I found that Transmission is not very nice, because cannot see the detailed information.

Then, I look for the alternative, then I found Deluge. The interface is similar to uTorrent. But uTorrent newer version does not work well under Wine. So, Deluge is my current solution as the bittorrent client. Good!

My News Reader on iOs

ya… this will be my first post here, and if you ask me what am I thinking of… for such a blog… ^_^,

there… I thought of MobileRSS,

hm… probably you’ll like other apps on iOS (mine’s iPad 2 and iPod 2… arrgh… damn old! waiting for iPod 5… ask me why can’t I just go get the iPhone 5?? nah!!! I still love my android, ie. Garmin Asus A10… which, of course, comes with superb Garmin map… especially after my Perth Trip… haha… I shall just put it on the altar, and worship it… ^_^ just kidding…!!!)

why MobileRSS??

ya, like I said, you probably have other better apps for news reading on iOS devices… be it the website itself, or maybe this famous Flipboard… (ok, I like it too.. but you know… both of them behave differently… just different!)

however, in my humble opinion, MobileRSS’s been a great apps as how Google Reader itself is, on web… *_* or in the cloud??


anyway, if you use other clients for news/rss/blog reading, then you may not know what I mean, but MobileRSS serves exactly as how I’ll use Google Reader on the web… for eg. “like”, “add star”, “share”…

and just like what I’ve told my brother…,

I read news on my iPad, ie. MobileRSS even much faster than using the Google Reader itself… (sorry, Google!)

as… I can quickly flip through, vs. I need to scroll down the page… ie. using the scroll button of my mouse… damn tiring man!

if you’ve loads and loads of junks to read like me,

and you like to click “like”, “share”, “add star”… then…

this maybe your good choice… if you own an iOS device…
