Today, I want to share a utility program I built. This little program, takes subtitle files, and spits out a nice crisp paragraph. I tested this program with a directory containing subtitles of 2 movies, and on the 8th second, I was looking at their transcripts. To test the file I/O operation, I took transcripts for a graduate level computer science course. It was organized in sections and sub-topics, totaling about 200 small clips. Within 3 seconds, I had my class notes, which I could use to share with a class, highlight important things being said in the lectures without typing a word!
One more thing, it is free and open-source, you can literally clone it and start using it right away.
Few days back I started working on a utility project called Team Foundation Dev Tools ( http://ablaze8.github.io/TeamFoundationDevTools/ ). The goal is to extend the TFS api and serve some unmatched features like searching entire TFS server for some file and/or file path ( wild card and exact search ), commits by a specific user to any and/or project among all projects of a TFS server and such.
I’m not planning anything serious with it, just trying to build something I always wanted to see in an ideal TFS tool.
This is an open source tool and also supports .NET 3.5 & 4.5.2 so it’s compatible all the way back to Visual Studio 2008 running on Windows XP … up until latest and greatest !
The main reason for preparing such a handy book is to give, to the point and specific guide to the reader. I’ve searched a lot for such a manual when I was creating my own live operating system: “Linux Spark” but every time I read from any resource I found either something missing or something too technical. This book will help you, whether you are an experienced guy, Administrator, newbie or just a student finding some quick reference manual with its lucid and simple language. This book is ready for you to go to the terminal and just start commanding your UNIX/Linux system !
Your suggestions, comments and guidance are gladly accepted. It’s my strong wish that you share this book with more and more people who are really interested, because I firmly believe that the knowledge is free and to get some definitive guide exactly when you need … Should feel like magic!
