A shift towards Flickr

April 3, 2014 Leave a comment

flickr

So I have finally moved to #Flickr, for all my photography stuff. It was no doubt a long journey with #Picasa but after much consideration I finally vote for Flickr. Leaving Picasa was a sad moment as I always prefer to use #Google products (all solutions in one box) but due to some constraints Picasa wasn’t fitting with my needs.

The main reason was storage capacity. After having Canon EOS 100D as my professional camera, the need of more storage was inevitable. 1 terabyte of Flickr vs 15GB of Picasa is a huge difference, and this thing gave me really a breath of relax. As advertised over Flicker home page,  1 terabyte = 537,731 6.5 megapixel photos, and even if I chose high resolution photos of my cam .i.e. nearly 13 to 14mb per photo, even then there are 218,453 photos with 16.0 megapixel that I can upload over 1TB of free space. Waoooo … incredible.

You can find some of my clicst at https://www.flickr.com/photos/114820437@N08/sets … though they need to organize a bit right now.

One interesting things is, I’m still using Picasa desktop tool to organize and edit all of my photos. There isn’t any match of Picasa desktop tool with any other photo organizer+editor. Here Picasa takes the stage.

Don’t you think that editing and organizing them in Picasa and uploading them over Flickr is something injustice with Google!!! ((:

Sometimes, I feel like this.

Beta Builder :: Wireless Distribution of Your Adhoc Archive

June 5, 2013 Leave a comment

Hey .. how’s work going? It’s good Han !!! … good good … So you have done with your release and verified with QA after some bug fixing; That’s great; You done a good job;

Now Its time to share the Adhoc with client; Ok … so what would you do? You will probably generate an IPA and attach it in email along with release notes.. right ??? Or you will upload it over some ftp/dropbox to let the client download and install it via iTunes … han??

Well… orite .. that’s fine.. but you know what? In both cases when client has an IPA file, he/she has to use the iTunes to sync your app in device, and in case he is away from his desk (or wants to reinstall it after deleting the old installation) he is stuck ..

Listen .. you are missing one thing here … when you have IPA files and iOS version > 4.0, you should use the web-based, wireless distribution of Adhoc apps and the ability to embed provisioning profiles right into the IPA bundle; Your test users can now install the builds without ever using iTunes at all; Doesn’t it sound good?

faisaMosqueAnnotation.image = [UIImage imageNamed:@"faisalMasjid.jpg"];
faisaMosqueAnnotation.title = kFaisalMasjidTitle;
faisaMosqueAnnotation.subtitle = kFaisalMasjidSubTitle;

Day 3 – Walking and Talking :: Trek to Rush Lake, Nagar valley;

January 14, 2013 3 comments

Tuesday, 10th July 2K12:

It was my first ever night in camp; Such feeling are very different when you open your eyes and recall yourself that you are not in your bed and room, but in a sleeping bag & camp at the height of 10,200 feet, ~3100 meters; It isn’t a pillow under your head, its your rucksacks full of cloths and other travel items;

06:00h. I woke up and looked outside the camp; A cool breeze with aroma of mountain flowers & trees welcomed me with open arms; I took my tooth brush and came out of the camp; It was indeed cold outside; With a deep breath I tried to absorb the freshness of morning, and it made me tremble with cold from inside; The second try was canceled instantly; The water in washbasin is enough to numb my fingers and face;

Team is crossing Hopper Glacier

06:30h – 07:30h. Rizwan Yousuf is getting fresh and asking me to wakeup Asadullah and Butt sb; It was our first night of calm sleep after tiring travel of two days, so no one was ready to wakeup; Well one by one, we are getting fresh, and approaching to kitchen where hot omlate and parathas are waiting for us;

07:45h. We are packing our camps and sleeping bags; The sun is shining brightly with clear sky and we are hesitating whether we should put on our worm jackets or not? We have fixed our sticks, rucksacks are on our shoulders and shoes are tied; Its time to start our trek; Yes this is the moment we were waiting for;

08:00 – 09:00h.  We have left Hopper valley at back, and a long Hopper Glacier is in front of our eyes; It is full of mud, sharp rocks and stones, as you can see in above image; Seems it will take more than an hour to cross it; Read more…
