Y

ou are reading the first issue of open source magazine on E-Technology. It's free, yes absolutely free for you. You can download every issue on first of every month from our website www.learnbywatch.com. Not only it is freely downloadable for every body but it is open for everyone's contribution, including you, yes, without you it is impossible to publish this magazine. It's quality, it's success, it's publication, it's look & feel everything almost everything depends on you. The intention to start this magazine is only one i.e. knowledge sharing. This project is not intended to earn money. But if somehow "Learn By Watch" start earning money from this project it will share with all the contributors based on their percentage of contribution. Although I know that you are busy, Some of you working somewhere, some are doing study, research, some of you are married and have family, so it is quite difficult for you to spend your valuable time on such a project that will not benefit you in any way. But think how much time it will required for this open source magazine? if only hundred peoples join this project then hardly 2 hour, in complete month is required from your valuable time and if this count reaches to 1000 then it will reduce to 2 hours in a year. Imagine it's benefits, you (other's also) will get a magazine everymonth (irrevalent to whether you contribute or not) that is full of news, featured articles, interviews and more required information. Till now you were reading what others are writing, now it's your time to write and let others read what you write. Send your articles to info@learnbywatch.com before 25 Jan 2011 for feb 2011 issue.


purpose. Almost every software developer wants that the software developed by him not only work fine but also it looks good. But a programmer is a programmer, it's not necessary that a good programmer can create good looking icons for his software. In this case what to do? well I have three answers 1) the first one is to open some vector drawing program and try to build icons yourself, read guides on colors, good icon creation and much more you can do to learn how to create a good icon. most of the software developers including me do not want to waste our time on making icons for the software and believe me for a programmer making attractive icons is harder then making a working software. 2) Hire a graphics designer: A professional graphics designer will design icons not only attractive but suitable for your software or website. But hiring a graphics designer just for icons may be very expensive. 3) The third and best method is to use an open source graphics library for this

A graphics library is a collection of graphics and open source means you are free to use it and redistribute it. There are many open graphics library available over the network but I have never seen one like NUVOLA. It was designed for KDE 3.0 using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. Icons were primarily designed using adobe illustrator and then exported to PNG format. Icons shadows and minor corrections were done using Adobe Photoshop. Kiconedit was used to correct some 16x16 and 22x22 icons. Author of this library is David Vignoni. You can visit his website http://www.icon-king.com for more information about his work. This library contains hundreads of icons in 6 different sizes and 5 different categories. Available sizes are 16x16, 22x22, 32x32, 48x48, 64x64, 128x128, can be used according to your requirements like menu-icons, toolbar, game symbols,

software toolbar icons. Even dull slides can be made attractive using nuvola graphics library. What else need to say some icons are given below let's see yourself.

Drag and drop attachments from Gmail to desktop A few months ago Gmail introduced a new feature which made it very easy to add attachments by drag and dropping attachments onto your email. The feature was simply drag and dropping these attachments from your desktop or a folder on your computer onto your browser which had Gmail open. Now Gmail recently announced that you can do the reverse that is move a attachment from your email onto the desktop.This actually improves the Email experience and makes the usual Email clients quite useless. I like this features as

often you end up looking at downloading or opening a file as a Google Document. This way I can just download it on my desktop and look it up. If I want to use it for another mail, I just need to drag and drop it back into the mail I am composing. This is a great way to make a browser interface more and more in line with the window interface. Especially when it comes to handling files. Lately Gmail has introduced quite a few changes including rich text editors for stylish signatures, Google Maps integration with Gmail and more..


Useful Google chrome Extensions There are many extensions available for Google Chrome on the Internet and some of Google chrome extensions you have used before. I have found 5 useful extension for Google chrome which will help bloggers, web designers and common Internet users as well.

E

ye dropper: It is a very useful extension for web-designers. Sometimes we want to know the text color OR color of logo on the webpage and by using this extension we can easily know the color of any text/image by clicking on the Eye dropper icon which will become available after you will install Eye dropper extension. After clicking the eye dropper icon, a pop will appear where you have to select 'pick color from webpage' button.

D

omain Availability Checker: What most of the bloggers do? They buy domains whenever they find their desired domain available. But checking the domain it

is available or not takes some time that is first you go to a domain registrar company webpage and check your desired domain there. This extension will surely help you all bloggers who are addicted to checking domain name availability. Just install this extension and write your desired domain name that you want to check it is available or not you will be shown at the same webpage that it is taken or not.

A

utonito: I am sure you will find this extension very helpful. You might have used Google chrome Incognito Mode (private browsing) before. This extension adds another feature in it. This extension allows you to create a list of websites that you want to open in private or Incognito mode. Whenever you click on the website and if it is in the list of Autonito extension then it will automatically open in Incognito mode.

G

ooedit: It is an another online image editor extension for Google chrome. After installation, you have to restart the browser and right click on the image on webpage and will see a Gooedit bar below the address bar where you can edit image like set brightness, contrast, color according to your choice and when all things done you can save your edited image by clicking the save button on the Gooedit bar.

o

Get: Integrate various download managers with Google chrome. you may know about the error 'Google chrome has stopped working'. It is IDM who causes this error. But I found this problem resolved by using oGet extension, you can integrate Google chrome with IDM successfully by using oGet extension. Not only IDM, you can integrate DAP, Orbit, Flashget, Thunder etc with Google chrome. It is a must have extension for Google chrome. avi singh http://www.avitricks.info


I

n the world of free(dom) and open source software, there’s one type of application that’s missing. Well, technically there’s a lot, but there’s one that I’ve often wondered why there is no open source software for "making comics". For Mac users, there’s Comic Life For Windows users, there’s the Windows version of Comic Life, and a number of other offerings. I’ve played with the latter, and found a number of limitations, but

even with limitations, it’s more than the open source software sector has. (I can get the same kind of results for basic Comic Life functionality using a combination of Krita and Gimp, the two playing off of one anothers’ lackings, but it ain’t pretty, and it takes a few days longer per panel.) I’m a software programmer, but I wouldn’t know where to start when it comes to working with images. It seems simple enough: make templates with rectangles which are SVG images using masks. Drop images inside the rectangles. Allow resizing both either the rectangle (preferably with grid snapping, something not found in Comic Life for Windows) or inner image (which has resulted in very bad quality in the resized image for me in Comic Life, but it only occurs sometimes, and can be worked around by deleting the image, then replacing it and resizing it again). Speech balloons and their tails would be SVG images, preferably with an intelligent whitespace inner border, keeping text from bleeding over the edges of the bubble (and more control over the tail than Comic Life offers). If only I knew where to start (using either Qt or KDE), this would definitely be the type of program that a lot of people would use. Not just those 20 Linux users

and two BSD users interested in making comics, but also Windows users who can’t (won’t) afford to pay for Comic Life for Windows. (Well, minus those who simply pirate the software, taking it down to a target market of maybe 50 more users there.) I could probably learn where to start, but between fiction writing, anime watching, and photograph taking, my software programming’s looking rather restricted to what I do at work (which does not involve comics). Running Comic Life on Linux via a Win32 compatability layer (Wine) is a flawed implementation, and running it on Windows Vista has stability issues for me. I should invest a month into learning/writing such software. Yes, I should do that “one day”. In the meantime, I’ll simply wish someone else would do it, let someone else serve the target market of 72 comic maker hopefuls. Perhaps it’s best this way, as I have no ability when it comes to comic dialogue. But, that’s all right. I’m not planning on doing a series of anime comics (others handle that), but I did have a random idea come up during a discussion on racism earlier this year. Yeah, maybe it’s for the better that Linux/BSD users such as myself don’t


have access to comic software.

My Experiments with Speech Bubble

After playing with Inkscape’s ellipses and Bezier curves, with path union, and stroke and fill controls, speech balloons become a barely tolerable task. We’ll ignore thinking about what would go into making a thought balloon. At the very

least, it should work for photo comics. Image masking might become tolerable with preset templates, so long as I don’t plan to change the style of a template after starting a comic with it. I need to play with clipping and see if that’s what I should be using instead of masking. Neither masking nor clipping appears to allow moving/resizing the masked/clipped object while not moving/resizing the masker/clipper. Doing a path union on multiple ellipses makes for a nice speech balloon.

Okay, with a little bit of work, making comics in Inkscape has officially become “considerably easy”. I might have to put together one of those tutorials I’ve always felt someone should have put together. (I’m “someone”, after all!) Speech balloon manipulation in Inkscape is super-easy. This one really scares me. I’m starting to think thought balloons will be quick and easy, after

playing with making an exclamation balloon. Colored balloons aren’t that hard to make, either, but they require a little more time and effort. If there’s any kind of scripting engine (such as Gimp has), that would make things a lot easier. Author: Christopher Fritz http://thepinksylphide.com

hen we go to purchase any laptop or desktop machine we will first search, what are the current technologies are in the market. As there are lot of technologies and factors to compare, specially processors, RAM, hard disk, graphics cards etc. As per as my survey for desktop machines Core2Duo processors are best enogh to work with 2GB DDR 3 RAM. Again it depends on the what type of work are you going to do on particular machine or PC. If you are into high computing and high speed then definatelly go for i3 processor with 4 GB DDR3 RAM. Again keep in mind that as technology changes price also varies. So its depend on your requirement and budget that what you prefer. And Hard Disk is 500 GB is sufficient for desktop machines. The difference between core2duo and i3 processor is, i3 is dual core only but with hardware level threading, also called as hyperthreading, It also have many other technological enhancements including an integrated GPU (Graphic Processing Unit). Intel developed hyperthreading, Intel virtualization and smart cache technology which makes these chips faster than core 2

PURCHASING LAPTOP? WAIT!!! read this... duo processors. Laptops with i3 to i7 processors are generally used now a days. While purchasing laptops, there are lots of doubts and quesions are there in mind, which laptop to purchase. As technology wise I suggest to go for at least i3 processor with 2 GB RAM. As i5 and i7 are always better that i3. But these are prefer by the business class people. For general use first one is sufficient. There is one more issue regarding 32-bit and 64-bit processor, which one is better. As far as performance and speed are concern both are good at current stage. Because if you want to improve your speed it needs to increase your RAM size in both processor. But there is limitation of RAM size in case of 32-bit processor upto

4 GB. Also a 64 bit processor has a data bus that is 64 bit wide, while a 32 bit processor has a data bus i.e. 32 bits wide. Thus, a 64 bit processor's data bus can carry in more information than that which can be done by the 32 bit processor's data bus. So, we again come back to the same conclusion, that 64 bit processors are faster than the 32 bit processors. So if you planning to go for more that 4 GB then definitely go for 64-bit and it is going to become new market trend. Prasad Pawar cseprasadpawar@gmail.com

and managing files between users, Google will do it for you. So in technical terms it’s virtualization of resource as a service over the internet. services Most cloud computing infrastructure consists of reliable services delivered through data centers and built on servers. Clouds often appear as single point of access for all consumers computing needs. So what is in it for everyone, well the end user gets the service, saves the capital investment on the resource and the provider get paid for the utility. Having seen the sunny side of it, let look at the darker one. Companies opting for cloud computing may land up actually paying more for the service then the actual resource cost. It a loss-loss situation where you do not get ownership of the resource and you pay more than its actual cost. So in situations where the capital budget is more flexible than the operating budget cloud computing may not make much sense. The cloud has been from the start accused on issues of data privacy and security. Well one has to admit letting a third party data center handle all his data and

Cloud Computing Juggling the economies of internet

I

nternet has made the planet smaller and smarter, and as it grows technology needs to catch up. Cloud computing is an internet based computing where a “resource” is provided as a “service”. The name was picked up because cloud was often used to depict telephone networks in communication diagrams. So much similar to that in cloud computing you dial in a service ,it spares the capital required to gather all those resources on each machine or at least on each network you build. So what is so attractive about cloud computing that everyone seems to be getting into it? Well for starters it doesn’t require that the end user trouble himself with technical details of the resource he needs, for example if you need to share some information among a group of users, use GoogleDocs (which is cloud based service). Why trouble yourself with setting up Microsoft Office and then circulating

computing, this does seems itchy, more if the customer data is sensitive in nature. Lastly, relative security levels of cloud computing is a major issue delaying its adoption. Some may logically argue that customer data is always more safely handled internally. So like two sides of coin we yet don’t know for sure which face would show up but looking at the amount of research companies like Intel, HP and Yahoo are putting in it seems cloud computing is here to stay.

Internet Explorer IE has been the most widely used web browser since 1999, attaining a peak of about 95% usage share during 2002 and 2003 with IE5 and IE6. Since its peak of popularity, its usage share has declined in the face of renewed competition from other web browsers to 55%, and is slowly trending downward. Microsoft spent over $100 million per year on IE in the late 1990s, with over 1000 people working on it by 1999.

Safari is a graphical web browser developed by Apple and included as part of the Mac OS X operating system. First released as a public beta on January 7, 2003 on the company's Mac OS X operating system, it became Apple's default browser beginning with Mac OS X v10.3 "Panther". Safari is also the native browser for the iOS. A version of Safari for the Microsoft Windows operating system, first released on June 11, 2007, supports Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7.

Google Chrome Google Chrome is a web browser developed by Google that uses the WebKit layout engine and application framework. It was first released as a beta version for Microsoft Windows on 2 September 2008, and the public stable release was on 11 December 2008. The name is derived from the graphical user interface frame, or "chrome", of web browsers. As of December 2010, Chrome was the third most widely used browser, with 13.35% of worldwide usage share of web browsers, according to Statcounter.

L

ast week my uncle went to attend parents meeting in his children school. Principal ask a question to all parents "Do you have computer at your home with internet connection?". About 60% of the parents respond negatively. Principal announce that from the next session they are about to implement "learning management system" in his school. So assignements and projects will be based on some softwares provided by school and students need to submit them online. So computer at home is must for each student from next session. When I meet my uncle he tell me that he visited computer shops and computer cost is about Rs. 20000/- to Rs. 30000/-, he can't afford this much cost. He ask me to search for a second hand computer that costs around Rs. 10000/-. I never in the favor of purchasing second hand computer about 10K. So I decided to assemble a PC at 10K. To solve his problem first I meet principal to know about the softwares need to be used for assignments and projects. He handed a list to me, list contains very

general programs that can be run on a dual core PC with 1 GB ram. My motive was to assemble a PC that costs around 10K and able to run all general programs without any problem. I decide following configuration for the PC-

1. Dual Core 2.8 GHz.....................2650/2. Intel Chipset Motehrboard............1800/3. 1GB DDR2 RAM.......................650/4. 500 GB HDD...........................1750/5. Cabinet with 450W SMPS.............800/6. Keyboard mouse kit.......................260/7. 600VA UPS.............................1250/8. Speaker.....................................400/9. DVD writer...............................900/10. Second Hand CRT monitor............1250/Total Cost............11710/-

This configuration was very good for general use. It costs only Rs.11710/just one more thing that need to be add is a pendrive. A 4GB pendrive costs Rs.350/and it makes our PC complete. Our computer hardware is now absolutely ready but an operating system is still

missing. I choose Ubuntu, a linux based operating system for this purpose. Ubuntu is open source hence it's free for use. Now it comes to softwares. OpenOffice is used as an alternative to MS-office. Inkscape and GIMP are used as an alternative to CorelDraw and photoshop respectively. Scribus is used in place of pagemaker. XAMPP framework is installed for webbased projects. Because it is Linux based operating system, antivirus program is not required. Dev C++ is installed for c and c++ projects. Some educational games like tuxmath, tuxpaint, tuxtype and scratch are also installed for childrens. Mozilla firefox, dictionary is already installed in ubuntu. Pdf converter is not required because this facility is already available in openoffice. Our computer is now ready for the use of children, because it has 500GB HDD. more partitions can be created for installing other operating systems like windows 7 or XP. Ubuntu is very easy to use, 3 days training was enough for the childrens. They are enjoying their PC and my uncle is enjoying watching their childrens on PC. :) yogendra pal yogendra.pal3@gmail.com

id you ever type in hindi using some hindi font like 'kruti dev' or 'mangal'. If your answer is yes, you better know that without practicing one can not type a 200 words letter in less than one hour. Don't worry I will not ask you to practice these fonts. I am talking about transliteration. Transliteration is a technique that rewrite your text in other script. If you will write "ram" transliteration technique will rewrite it as "UÉqÉ" same way if you want to type "UÉkÉÉ lÉå zrÉÉqÉ Mãü ÍsÉrÉå eÉaÉ NûÉåQûÉ" you will type "raadha ne shyaam ke liye jag chhodaa". Isn't it easy? Now you may want to know about the softwares that you can use for this purpose. Lets look themThis is an open-office plugin developed by CDAC. Using Rupantar you can type in hindi. Because it is a plugin for open-office you need to install OpenOffice first after that download rupantar plugin from www.cdacmumbai.in, install it. It will automatically comes in toolbar, if you can't see rupantar button, enable it from view > toolbar > rupantar. You can en-

Type In

able/disable rupantar using rupantar button. Baraha Direct is the most popular software for transliteration. It can transliterate in various indian languages like kannada, hindi, sanskrit and other. It is very easy to use and can work with any application unlike Rupantar. When you run Baraha Direct it will be available in taskbar with the EN written on it. when you click on it you will see language option select Hindi from it and if you want to type in unicode select unicode otherwise select ANSI. If you choose ANSI you need to select BRH Devnagari font to type in hindi

otherwise you can write directly. This tool is my favourite tool because it predict hindi words while you type. The only problem with this tool is that you need internet connection while installing it. When you run it you can see it's icon in taskbar. To use it click on it and choose your preferred language. While you type Google IME will start predicting corresponding Hindi word, you can select one from the list and press space or enter. This is same as you type in Gmail while write in Hindi.

option 1 is the correct answer.

Most of you will think of the 3rd option because you can see the condition is not true and hence the statement under if will not execute. Your concept is not wrong, you are right here but probably you miss the semicolon that is placed just after if statement in the programs. if statement ends here and the followed lines are not under the if statement, it's a free line and it's execution does not depend on any conditional statement.

If your answer is 3, probably you missed the ' = ' assignment operator in the if statement. it's not conditional operator, so it will not compare the values but it will assign the constant at right hand side to the variable at left hand side and hence the value that come in ' if statement ' is a nonzero value hence this program will print something.

If your answer is 1, I would like to congratulate you because you noticed the '=' assignment operator in the if statement but there is one thing that you forget that assignment operator not only make the if statement un-effective but also update the value of c from 'a' to 'b' and hence the option 2 is the correct answer.

if your answer is 1. probably you do not know anything about if statement otherwise you will never select this option,


condition is false so how can "Statement A" will print? if your answer is 3. obviously you know about the if statement but you just choosen a wrong answer because you just beleive in indent (space) that is given to the 6th statement with the intention to make you fool. if statement takes more then one statement ' if and only if ' statements are surrounded by the ' { ' ' } ' curly braces. so 6th statement is out of the block of if statement and do not depend on if statement. So the correct answer is 2.

On 18th of December 2010, InOpen Technologies an IIT Bombay SINE Company conducted hands-on workshop for demonstrating “innovative methods of teaching Computer Science curriculum in schools”. Representatives from many schools of AGRA attended the workshop held at Anand Engineering college, Agra. The session started with a brief introduction by Mr. Rupesh Kumar Shah who is the CEO and Founding Director of InOpen Technologies. CM started four years back when Dr. Prof. Sridhar Iyer was invited to be in the Academic Board of a well-known group of schools to take care of their Computer Science Curriculum. After it the team in IIT Bombay comprising of child Psychologists, Pedagogy Experts, Illustrators created Computer Masti after 4 years of intense research. It has its roots in Patanjali Yoga sutra for deliverance of concepts in form of Pratyaksha, Anuman, Aagma and Pramana. Dr. Prof. Sridhar Iyer is also a director of InOpen Technologies. Mr. Rupesh Shah start with a short presentation and explain the advantage of Computer Masti Curriculum that is it provides Schools with lot of innovative methods of Teaching. In this extra-

ordinary Computer Science Curriculum, ‘Concept is king’ and focus is entirely on deliverance of Concepts rather than Traditional Skill Oriented Computer Teaching." . Mr. Rupesh explain the value addition that can be availed to schools by Computer Masti. The audience participated during the presentation and totally agreed to the “Why”, “What” and “How” methods of Teaching. He said to us that Computer Masti e-books has been downloaded in more than 103 countries and has been translated in 8 Indian (Hindi, Urdu, Marathi, Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Gujarati and Bengali) and 2 foreign (Arabic and French) languages. Computer Masti Learning Systems has already been implemented in more than 35 schools through different delivery models. Mr. Yudhisther Yadav (Business Development Executive) and Mr. Rupesh Kumar Shah of InOpen Technologies conducted the hands-on session with the audience making them play with various Open Source Based Educational Games and Applications. The audience was thrilled by the hands-on session and enjoyed every bit of it. The simplicity of the software led the participants to create their own dynamic vibrant animations and paintings in no time. The participants were

thrilled to know that all these software and games come free of cost. At the End of this session they are surprised by the fact that with these application the FUN and LEARNING is single entity for the students. One of the participants, Ms. Ritu Rohatgi from Shri H R Inter College said “the CM Learning Solution is Incomparable. I mean everything is planned and organized with the approach which helps students to learn things unconsciously and also helps us to use the short attention span of students efficiently and effectively. Ms. Anu Abrol from St. Francis Convent, Agra said “the curriculum makes me feels good as I am able to relate the need of hour which I see in my school. At Last Mr. Yogendra gave the general information regarding Implementation process here after session was ended with Certificate distribution ceremony. Certificates were distributed by Mr. Rupesh (CEO, InOpen Technologies SINE, IIT-B) and Ms. V. Thakre (HOD, EIE, Anand Engineering College). A special thanks to Mr. Raj Kumar Thenua (Asst. Professor, EIE, Anand Engineering College) and Ms. V. Thakre. for their help.
