A BufferedReader which returns line terminators

April 7, 2011 Leave a comment

I am working on a parser which must take into account line numbers, and make correlations between them and document’s offsets. For instance, I need to know at which line is the character #145 of a given text file. The problem is that different OSs use different line terminators: \n on Linux, \r\n on Windows, \r on Mac.

How small is the sun down there!

December 23, 2010 Leave a comment

I saw this wonderful movie taken from Mars Rover Opportunity.

The most incredible thing to my eyes was how small is our sun viewed from down there. Looks not so bigger than other stars, but its light is still so strong to bring day light to te whole planet.

How to make gwibber open Firefox (or any other browser) instead of the default one

December 7, 2010 3 comments

Since I found Gwibber installed by default with my Ubuntu 10.10 os, I started using itΒ  as my Social broadcast messages client, and I really enjoyed this way to stay informed about anything.

The only annoying thing about this brilliant piece of software was the fact that the links were opened with Epiphany instead of Firefox, that is my default browser.

I googled a little until I found the solution here.

Here is all you have to do to fix this problem:

1) install galternatives

sudo apt-get install galternatives

2) Change the values of these configurations:


Now gwibber opens the links in the browser you want. Perfect for me πŸ™‚

A mobile phone that works as a mobile phone!

November 17, 2010 1 comment

I travel by car everyday to reach the office, as millions of people do. One of the bad things that can happen to workers like me is to have some problems with the car AND, at the same, having the mobile phone out of battery. Very bad condition, don’t you agree?

This is the reason why I LOVE serious mobile phones that are loyal to the most important mission a mobile phone must have to follow: being reliable.

Most of modern devices waste their batteries doing a lot of unessential jobs (pictures, browsing etc.). Yes, they’re funny, cool, beautiful… but what about discovering at 19:00, inside your broken car, at 10 km from home, that the facebook app inside your IPhone has sucked up all your battery?

That’s the case you will regret a real, trustable, old (?) mobile phone!
