Talks around PHP, Computer Science and Stuffs
I was able to invest time on improving the UI and adding new features to fxalert.net.
Fxalert.net is a web application allowing to create simple and advanced email and SMS alerts on the forex market. It supports more than a 100 of currencies pair.
The new features includes the following :
- Integration with facebook (you can now use your facebook account to login);
- UI Revamp;
- You can now create SMS / Mobile alert for up to 10 different countries and it supports more than a hundred of mobile providers;
- Aggregation of forex news from twitter and around the web;
- New FAQ section.
I hope people will like and find useful this new version.

I recently developed for fun a webapp offering forex currencies alert. It allows users to create 100% free custom currencies alert on approximately 100 currency pairs.
Alerts are sent by email for now, but others channels will be available soon such as SMS, IM.
You can check it out at www.fxalert.net.
Any feedback is welcome
On my last post, i mentioned that there should be a linux version of Mikogo. I just received an email a couple days ago informing me the beta started.
I am going to try it and will post some results / feedback here.
It seems very promising !
A few months ago, Salesforce acquired DimDim (the web conferencing tool) and they decided a change of strategy. For us users, that means no more DimDim as a free web conferencing application.
As a consultant, I often need to use web conferences and since the old DimDim days were over, I started looking for a new one.
After doing some searches and tests, I discovered Mikogo.
Their features list is pretty complete and wide. It is a completely free (without any ads) service.
I did some tests and it works really good. So, if you were like me, looking for a solid and free web conferencing service, I highly suggest you to try it out.
Their windows client is very light, and they support Windows & Mac. They also working on a linux distribution ! They have started beta invite yesterday, you can register for the beta here : http://www.mikogo.com/2011/04/21/mikogo-linux-beta-testers/
By spending some time reading their forums, it seems they have a nice community of users also.

Recently, I have been bugged by a new translate bar appearing on the top of my Chrome navigator each time I visit a foreign site. That bar would take an extra line space (Very annoying when you are using a netbook) and I had to click each time on the “X” to close it.
Usually Google is good with user experience, however in that case I was surprised by that very annoying feature. I would bet I am not the only one who got annoyed by it.
The good news is that with the latest release (220.127.116.115), you can disable that feature (Why is it enabled by default however ?).
To do that, go to Tools > Options > Under the Hood > Translate and deselect the box next to “Offer to translate pages that aren’t in a language I read.”
