|I have moved!||
Hi guys, I have moved my blog to http://expertria.com
The reason I moved it because I am blogging lesser on MS stuff nowadays and more towards Rich Internet Applications and Web 2.0 stuff. So yah, keep me in your RSS reader if you still wanna support me.
I am proud to annouce that Foodlane.sg has launched its long awaited feature, Foodlane Groups. Foodlane Groups allow users to create their own groups (like Flickr Groups) and post their food images as well as to discuss about food and new food hideout. The interface is simple and tuned to be intuitive and straight forward. Hope you you guys can give support by taking a look / create a group. Even if you are not Singaporean,you can still join and discuss about food!
Foodlane Group: http://foodlane.sg/pages/group
|Ajax search youtube, metacafe, google video and velvetpuffin from 1 location, and sms them to your phone!||
I love this feature by velvetpuffin whereby you can search youtube, metacafe, google and velvetpuffin video from its main page. Very fast retrieval speed as they use AJAX. The interface is very clean too without any advertisements. Just search all you want! You can also sms/email the video directly to your friends handphone without any registration and for free.
Try it here: http://velvetpuffin.com/

|New Video for Icicle (Apollo Version)||
I have just uploaded a new video for Icicle to let users see what Icicle is capable of doing using Apollo. It is also a sneak preview of what the users will be expecting in the next v0.3 release.
In the next release, users can do the following:
In-Icicle opening of images, mp3 and videos
The photos/music player can 'break free' of icicle main window to exist on their own (useful for stuff like image slideshow, etc, without the need to see other stuff)
Better GUI, such as the upload/download progress bar
Watch Video: http://expertria.com/iciclev2/
Of course, you can always download v0.2.1 here: http://expertria.com/icicle.air
or see the web version if you are lazy to install apollo: http://expertria.com/icicle/web/
|Icicle is now Apollo. Access your box.net online files from your desktop!||
Finally, I manage to find some time to churn out Icicle V0.2, Apollo Edition ;)
About Icicle: Icicle is a desktop application powered by Apollo and Actionscript 3.0. Its a pure actionscript project (no mxml) that utilizes box.net api to allow users to access their box.net online files from their desktop. Currently, Icicle is in version 0.2 and supports the following operation:
1) Uploading of files/multiple files
2) Downloading of files
3) Rename/Delete/Move of files
4) Searching (via tag)
5) Adding/Removing/Editing of tags
6) Creation/Delete/Move of folders
Using Icicle, you interact your files around by 'tossing' them around.
With V0.2, I added the following functionality:
Transparency support using Apollo.
Look ma, my files are the same as my desk!
Thanks to Darukusan for being my QA tester until this version.
You can download Icicle V0.2 here:

|Icicle v0.1, Accessing Box.net online storage in Actionscript 3.0||
Icicle is a flash user interface to online storage provider box.net. Using icicle, you can access your files at box.net. At 0.1, you can upload files, delete, rename, create folders and download them. In the upcoming 0.2, I will add in tagging, moving of files/folders as well as sorting. I am release this version so that I can receive feedback as well as any comments and bugs notification. Heres some how to use:

Once done, return to icicle and you will see the files created on the desktop. You can do the following :
2) Draw a marquee to select multiple files
All feedback are welcome. I will port this to Apollo when I release v0.2.

And one more thing, its not done in Apollo.
After viewing a cultinary show yesterday, me and my dear decide to cook a crab on our own. The name of the dish is called "Egg Crab" (lousy translation from chinese). My task is simple: kill the crab, wash it and chop it to pieces. After running from the kitchen to the desktop a few times (to read the "how-to chop a crab" article), I finally able to cut the crab into neat pieces(with some help from my sister) and then delegating the rest to my dear to place the finishing touch: Here is the final look of the dish:
|Change of Job||
Last month had been a busy month for me managing Pixel Reloaded as well as changing my job from a Flash Instuctor into a full time Actionscript Developer.
Right now I am working everyday looking at Actionscript and getting some RIA to work. Well that sure takes away my rss feeding time(getting hungry) to minimum as well as my blogging time. In return, I get to spend time with..well..Actionscript everyday. In the time to come,I hope that I can switch back to training and development on free lance basis so that I can spend more time with foodlane to concentrate on the website development, as well as flexing with AS3.
I will continue to blog more on Flash, RIA as well as Flash Application Development until then!
