Connecting to IRC with your mobile phone

Hey it's been a while since I have shared a project of mine, I have been very busy lately. Today I am going to share a program called JmIRC. This program allows users to chat on IRC using their mobile phone. This program is Java based so you don't need to have a smart phone!!

This program works on any phone that allows Java based apps, which is most phones, it will work on smartphones as well but the people that can't afford a smartphone can also use it.

How to use BlueChomp to find undiscoverable bluetooth devices

Intro
Many people think that putting your bluetooth device in undiscoverable mode makes it so that noone can see your device. While this is true for the conventional user, it is not accurate! Bluetooth devices can still be found by knowing or guessing the BDADDR which is the bluetooth equivelant of a MAC Address.

Dynamically including fivestar ratings in drupal content

While using the Fivestar module for Drupal I came across a situation where I wanted to use multiple seperate votes on a single page. Okay this can already easily be done no problem but I didnt want to clump them all together at the bottom of the page nor at the top nor in the middle. I wanted to instead use them inside my content as I was writing the content of the page. This would allow me to get votes on multiple things as they read the article.

webpage development width and height attributes in IE

As webpage developers we know about and commonly use the width and height attributes to change the layout of our pages. But here is a not very known fact that I just came across, IE or Internet Explorer atleast since IE 8 supports not only whole numbers but decimals as well in the attribute. It doesn't seem that Firefox or any other browser will support this but for example if we have width="99.9%"

IE will return the extra .9% thus typing width="99.9%" will display different than typing width="99%"

Svchost processes, learn what they really are

If your running Windows you have probably opened the task manager or task monitor ( whichever you want to call it nowdays ) and noticed that there is just about always multiple processes running called svchost . Wiki descibes svchost in the following manner "In the Windows NT family of operating systems, svchost.exe (Service Host, or SvcHost) is a system process which hosts multiple Windows services." However some malicious software or malware can also use this name to hide in our systems. So how do we know what that svchost process is actually doing?

I thought I would share them with you today.
