Heh, just open http://www.microsoft.com/india/default.aspx, let the flash thingy load and try to click on any of the three links. And you get a “No Such Link” page each time!

Learn how to crack Symbian applications, courtesy http://www.newlc.com/article.php3?id_article=606.
An interesting read. Of course, no actual tool used for the ARM disassembly is mentioned :-P

Baffled by the title?
It’s for this contest. If you have a blog, consider linking back to my site with the following text:

This one’s pretty old, but if you are new to Symbian development, you can download a WINS build of FExplorer here. Only binaries, no source. This app allows you to “browse” the phone emulator.
And if you want to browse your hard drive using FExplorer in the emulator, here’s how:
1. Open epoc.ini (it would be under the %EPOC_ROOT%\Data directory)
2. Add an EPOC drive and the corresponding path on your hard drive

Many of you may know that I am running Techbook thanks to the wonderful people at http://weblogs.us. But one disadvantage is that I don’t have access to server logs. So, the only way I can know the number of visitors to the site is by checking Google’s AdSense Reports page. If you use AdSense, you would know about the “Page Impressions” column, which tells you that.
- adding FTP support
- increasing storage space from 100MB to 1GB.
- adding full statistics reporting
(more details here).
Moving to WordPress will be interesting. I have never used it, although I have been wanting to try it out for a while now.
On the mobile front, I have some issues getting an ARMI build of my application. The WINS UDEB/UREL run just fine on the emulator, but on the emulator there’s not much action. Since I won’t be calling any location-specific functions (that get the area/cell ID), there’s not much to see here anyway.
In other news, Gmail went POP. I still don’t have that option. But that’s ok — I am in no hurry to download more than 250 MB of e-mail at home (yes, I have dial-up at home, and yes you can laugh all you want :-)… reason? I don’t *have* an option at this time, when no one is ready to give a broadband connection where I live).
Tomorrow should be interesting. I am pooped tonight.

Well, that’s about the most basic screen from Rent-A-Mobile. Uses the crappiest map of Bangalore available. It’s alpha-quality code (hell, I’m not even packaging this as a SIS file for now), so you know what I’m talking about. Once the handling of maps is complete, I will move on to integrating it with either a Bluetooth-enabled GPS receiver or rely on (ugh) the area ID/cell ID of the network.
If you are interested in contributing to the testing of this application (or contributing money for the GPS receiver – I need someone to sponsor it!), let me know. Of course, the primary requirement is for you to be in Bangalore physically, so I dunno how many people will actually turn up ;-)
Oh, and the screenshot is from the emulator, which is why you won’t see the signal strength being displayed in the top left corner.

I’m… surprised, to say the least.
