Sync development and production files via a simple customizable bash script

Blog
Linux

Uploading website to the production sever is usually a time consuming task specially when you have to do it many times a day. Since the developmers working under my supervision do not have access to the online server i have to upload many websites many times day! and for addressing this issue while ago i decided to write a simple customizable bash script.

It syncs the remote server with local server and only uploads the files which have changes since the last update. I used the mighty lftp and the bash script mostly simplfies the usage.

Moving Users, Document and settings, or Home folder to another partition or disk

Blog
Linux
Windows

System partition (Where operating system is installed) is usually target for viruses, bad sectors, out of disk space (Which is quite common in Windows Vista and the next versions due to the winsxs folder's uncontrolled size increase) specially in Windows. You may need to re-install or even format your entire system partition, in situations like this the main problem is how to backup your data if your haven't lost it already!! Although it's possible but it's not easy, Unlike Linux , Windows does not have any official live CD so you would have to use command line or connect your disk to another system and wait until it backups your data and then you can start re-installing Windows, it's a very time consuming process and not every one has multiply OSs or PCs.

Using a different disk for users' data can also improve performance in Multi Tasking. Also If you're a Linux user there is another advantage. Using another partition for users's data allows trying other distributions - which is quite common among Linux users - without having to be worried about data loss.

Drawing organization charts easily with OpenOffice Draw

Blog

I don't know whether you've heard of OpenOffice or not. OpenOffice is perhaps the best alternative to Micro$soft Office currently available. It's a collection of applications that work together closely to provide the features expected from a modern office suite. Many of the parts are designed to be alternatives to those available in Microsoft Office.

But what's the different between these two popular office applications ?

Time to start taking online privacy seriously

Blog

Online privacy has always been one my concerns, and the reason is the fact that as a software developer i know what's happening behind the scene. I believe that it's up to us (Software developers) to let the people know that their privacy is getting violated every hour even when they're not a member of any social network!!!.

A blog post by Larry inspired me to write this post,

Earlier today, one of the people I follow tweeted that his young (under 5, I believe) daughter had just done something stupid. Nothing illegal or immoral, just the sort of embarrassing and sometimes destructive stupidity that young children tend to get into. And he then tweeted it.

Which means that his under age daughter's actions are now part of the permanent archive of the US government.

Using Actionscript 3 Tween for everything

Blog
Programming

If you ever used actionscript 3 then you probabely know that tween class does not work with anything other than simple numeric object properties. This is an issue sometimes becuase you might want to tween a function! or a property of a child object or even an string! There are plenty of third-party classes out there for extending the Tween class, but if you don't need all other features they offer and prefer to keep your swf's size small i must tell that there is solution , a rather easy one actually.

What we're doing to do is using dynamic objects,
