Ænema

Link
I know posting videos and lyrics on your blog is LAME.so don't remind of that.
On the other hand I sure could use a vacation from this bull-shit.So flush it all away , FLUSH IT DOWN



Some say the end is near.
Some say we'll see Armageddon soon.
I certainly hope we will.
I sure could use a vacation from this
bull-shit three ring cirrrrcus siiiideshow of
Freaks here in this, hopeless fucking, hole we call LA.
The only way to fix it is to flush it all away.
Any fucking time.
Any fucking day.
Learn to swim, I'll see you down in Arizona bay.

Fret for your figure and
Fret for your latte and
Fret for your lawsuit and
Fret for your hairpiece and
Fret for your prozac and
Fret for your pilot and
Fret for your contract and
Fret for your car.
It's a bull-shit three ring cirrrrrcuus siiideshow of
freaks here in this hopeless fucking hole we call LA.
The only way to fix it is to flush it all away.
Any fucking time.
Any fucking day.
Learn to swim, I'll see you down in Arizona bay.

Some say a comet will fall from the sky.
Followed by meteor showers and tidal waves.
Followed by faultlines that cannot sit still.
Followed by millions of dumbfounded dipshits.
Some say the end is near.
Some say we'll see armageddon soon.
I certainly hope we will
I sure could use a vacation from this
stupid shit, silly shit, stupid shit...
One great big festering neon distraction,
I've a suggestion to keep you all occupied.
(Learn to swim.)
Mom's gonna fix it all soon.
Mom's comin' round to put it back the way it ought to beeeeeeeee.

(Learn to swim.)
Fuck L Ron Hubbard and Fuck all his clones.
Fuck all these gun-toting Hip gangster wannabes.
(Learn to swim.)
Fuck retro anything. Fuck your tattoos.
Fuck all you junkies and Fuck your short memory.
(Learn to swim.)
Fuck smiley glad-hands with hidden agendas.
Fuck these dysfunctional, insecure actresses.
(Learn to swim.)
Cuz I'm praying for rain
and I'm praying for tidal waves
I wanna see the ground give way.
I wanna watch it all go down.
Mom please flush it all away.
I wanna see it go right in and down.
I wanna watch it go right in.
Watch you flush it all awaaaaaaaaay.

Time to bring it down again.
Don't just call me pessimist.
Try and read between the lines.
I can't imagine why you wouldn't
Welcome any change, my friend.
I wanna see it come down.
(Suck it down.)
Flush it down.

PhotoShrink 2.0 Shrink & Upload on the Fly

Sometime back i created a tool to reduce the size of images called PhotoShrink.The main purpose of doing this was to cut down the size of images before emailing, uploading to Facebook,Picasa etc. You can read all about that in my previous post about PhotoShrink. Many of my friends found it very handy when uploading Photos to Facebook. ( thanks to the high MP cameras they make these days ;) ). Well it had close to 180 downloads in Source forge as well. The first improvement that came out for it was to add a progress bar to indicate the shrinking progress.(thanks poori for bringing it up). Since it’s the vacation time & all i thought of doing that improvement and adding some more color to PhotoShrink and creating the next version PhotoShrink 2.0


The main enhancement in this is now you can directly upload photos to Facebook and create an album as well.You can directly upload your shrunken images to Facebook with only one click and create an Album in Facebook. It’s not only for the images shrunken from PhotoShrink; you can use it as a photo uploader for facebook independently as well.
I know most of the people (including my self) hate the Facebook Java applet uploader which at the last moment of the uploading says “upload failed”. Hope you guys will find it useful as much as i did. Any suggestions , improvements error reports are all welcome.

As usual you will need to install the .NET Framework 3.5 in order to run this.

There is no installer just download the .zip folder extract and use it.You can download the binary from here.

You can get the source code from here.

I used the Facebook Developer Toolkit for from codeplex for the integration with Facebook. The toolkit is simply awesome and provides very easy to use wrappers for .NET from the Facebook API.

Rock on'

As Agony Unfolds

Hi guys, I've wanted to try out the Windows Live Writer for so long but it kept getting postponed day by day. Well finally here it is. I don’t know whether it would work but if you’re reading this well it works ;)

You can directly configure it to link with your blog and it even gets the colour scheme from your blog. You can do the usual stuff like adding images,posting links,adding video,spell check ,saving the draft etc etc. But what’s cool is you can set the labels for your posting as well. It’s really cool & i think you should try it if you haven’t used it.

Enough about Live Writer now lets get to the real deal.Three way Split between Plecto Alquem Capite (SL)/ Raaksha(SL)/ Pogrom(CA) Titled "As Agony Unfolds" was released today through Funeral Rain Records (Canada) and SLUM Records (Sri Lanka).It is totally awesome & sure will make you go (i wouldn’t know what to call it) “pissu hadenawa”. You can download the album from this link.

  1. Raaksha - Susaana Rujaawa
  2. Pogrom - Anvil
  3. Plecto Aliquem Capite – Seevali

Download it and give it a try,but heed my words this is not the crappy music you hear on radio.

Good job done my brothers expect more soon.

Raaksha

PhotoShrink - Easy way to compress your images

Writing something after a very very long time. Well it's not going to be any kind of a thought or a story rather to Share a tool i created with you guys. I created this first for my use but even before i finished coding i found someone who needed this ;) . So i thought you guys also would find it useful.
As the name suggests what the tool does is very simple it reduces the size of your images. This is done by decreasing the pixels in the image by a given percentage. For me it comes in very handy when i need to upload a lot of pictures to Facebook. It takes a very long time upload the pictures since most of the cameras that we use today have very high Picture quality & high resolutions.But when we upload we don't need that much quality, hence taking so much time to upload large files is a waste of time. The alternative is reducing the quality of your picture.Most of the photo editing software's provide this feature, but the problem is you'll have to open each photo reduce quality & then save. Imagine doing this to like 50 photos you have :O
This is the part where PhotoShrink comes in to rescue.
All you have to do is
1) Put all the images you need to reduce quality in to one folder
2) Set the Reducing Percentage from the slider
3) Shrink !
well that's it.



You can set the Reducing Percentage from the slider.
Ex : Original Size 1000 x 500 set percentage to 20% then reduced size is 200 x 100

You can choose the input images folder and the output folder from the file browser

Currently PhotoShrink supports 9 widely used image extensions and will support more in the future. This is a very early release and still it might have some problems here & there but it get's the job done with ease.

Please feel free to give your comments & suggestions for improvements.
You can download the tool from here
This requires .NET Framework 3.5 , Windows XP sp2 or above or Windows Vista

The source code will be available very soon (after adding the comments ;) )

Hope you'll find it useful.

Rock on'

Intelisense For jQuery In Visual Studio 2008

jQuery is one of the coolest things i came across in the past months. It's a neat javascript library that enables you to develop rich,interactive & fast dynamic websites very easily.
Since I'm helping one of my friends with his project these days i thought of using jQuery for that project. When i was playing around with the library the first thing that came to my mind was how brilliant it would be if we had Intelisense for jQuery as well (of course i would want intelisense when writing a document as well since visual studio had made it that much essential to life ;) ). After searching the web i came across this great post that explains the way to do this simply & cleary.
It has only 3 simple steps.
1. Install VS2008 servicepack 1
2. Install the patch that enables support for -vsdoc.js files
3. Download jQuery and the documentaion js file for visual studio.

REMEMBER the vsdoc file should have be prefixed as the same name as the .js file.
(ex: jquery-1.3.1.js and jquery-1.3.1-vsdoc.js ).
That's all. Then all you have to do is add a script reference to the jQuery js file and start coding.
You'll notice that now you have a very helpful Inetelisense for jQuery.

Another thing this is not only for jQuery you can do this to any of your external javascript files by just adding a additional -vsdoc file. How wonderfull it is to have an editor like Visual Studio.
A very very big thank you to ScottGu's Blog for making the best editor even more better and keeping us aware.
