where i've been - 21% of the world so far

where i've been - 21% of the world so far... hopefully will get to see the whole planet before I die.

On the subject, I think VISAs and Borders suck! 15 million people are stateless today!!!

I resent the idea that some people in this world are told they cannot enter this and that country because they are from this or that country. I think it's a backwards mentality with no justification that 'based on a place' of where someone was born that is then somehow is directly related to their travel options on the planet... I hope international borders are removed. People argue that people need to be tracked across borders... yes some people need to be tracked but that can happen in many other ways, country restrictions are a primitative solution to what is fast becoming a borderless world.

Countries are increasingly interdependent on each other and so are their citizens.  

Dear future: I would like to see all border and visa restrictions removed please.

where do UK residents report powercuts: 0800 028 0247

The other day I had a powercut late in the night and I tried to call my electricity company but they had no operators at that time.

Seemed kinda there should be a service to report to at any hour so I made some enquires about where do UK residents report powercuts in the middle of the night?

Well there is a service and it's called uk power networks, the number for London area is 0800 028 0247

alas, it's put my mind at rest and I know it's boring to blog about but someone else might have the same question. goodnight

Made my 2nd android app to help people find their lost phones or devices

Made my 2nd android app to help people find their lost phones or devices. I've lost my phone a number of times, or had it stolen also :( Sure I had tracking apps installed on them and gratefully they have mapping GPS software on them but that just shows you where on a map they are. What if you're in a city like me most of the time and need to find your device in a building! Well hello, so like I just made this app to detect a single WiFi hotspot. e.g. Make a note of your phone or device personal hotspot. Install the app (for android phones) then start "Find My Hotspot" and see how you can detect the wifi / personal hotspot from your iPhone or whatever device. Bamb! We're almost there, you'll know you're device is in range. Sure I want to develop an AR 3D version but it's a start and I didn't see any other apps that zero in on just a single wifi network. It'd be too tricky wandering around having to look at your phone all the time to see if the network you wanted to find was in range.

reverse image search app in google play for android

Ok, I added my first mobile app "reverse image search" in google play for android:
http://bit.ly/reverseimagesearch
I think it's better to start with a high price then bring it down.

I want to improve the back-end to make it more accurate but I need the revimg (or similar) code.

The Guerilla Filmmaker's Handbook - Chris Jones, Genevieve Jolliffe

Checking out JIRA project tracker for software dev



It looks good and has some related tools. Mostly I've used bug trackers like Trac, Bugzilla, Mantis, Basecamp, this is just another interface to learn.
