As I told you before, I would publish iOS version of the dictionary if people keep editing the wiki. After I released PC version, I checked the wiki. Guess how many people edited the wiki? Let me give you a hint, it is less than 1 🙂 I realized that, this wiki won’t mature in near future. So I decided take one more thing off my bucket list.
Let’s talk about the dictionary. Unfortunately, I didn’t/don’t know much about Objective-C and iPhone programming. I read lots of code, installed Yosemite to my old HP PC(hint:hackintosh) and start learning it. After a month, and banging my head more than I can remember, I made something that worked. You should have seen me when it worked. Haha silly me. Anyway, I hope it also works for you. It is a universal app that should work both on iPhone and iPad which has iOS 7 or above. I tested on iPhone 5s and iPad Air and it worked. Since I don’t have a developer account, you need a jailbroken device to install this.
First of all, jailbreak your device.
Open Cydia and install Apple File Conduit “2”. Reboot.
For a long time, I tried to make English-Khmer chemistry dictionary to help Khmer students. I setup a WIKI at http://zischem.wikispaces.com ask students to fill it with chemistry terms. In the beginning, it was progressing very well. However, after some time, students stopped entering new words and project stopped. When I began this project, I promised my students that I will release dictionary as a software and put the name of most contributing students to about box of software. I was waiting for WIKI to mature. I found out that this is not going happen soon. Therefore, Today I give you Jericho my dictionary software. I know there are some bad entries or poor translations. However, I don’t know which ones and I hope someone who knows Khmer, English and some Chemistry edit the WIKI and fix those errors. If people start editing the WIKI, I may release updated version of this software. Anyway, I hope you like the software.
PS: Software only works on Windows. If dictionary matures, I will release iOS version 🙂
Another boring day and another tinkering post. For couple of days I was just resting at home and learning new stuff about computers especially programming. When I was tinkering with my old Dreambox 800, I found a cool plugin named AirPlayer. It turns your Dreambox to Apple TV so that you can stream the media on your iPhone to your box easily. However there was one problem. Cool features aren’t enabled unless we pay. Read More »
During my holiday, I wrote a small utility for my own usage. It allows you to check CCcam details. Because I was tired of using CCcam to check username and password. Frankly I also don’t trust some websites which allow you to check your CCcam details. Therefore I coded one program for myself called CCcam Suite. This software allows you to check your CCcam details. It achieves this by doing exactly how CCcam does. More information is in the readme file.
My brother told me that he just bought cheap media player named MyGica R6. It is actually cool device because it can play all kind of media files and it has network connectivity as well.
However he said that subtitles has kind a brown color and very hard to read. First of all I tried to go to its website but I couldn’t find any firmware or information about my model. After some Google search and Archive Way back machine, I achieved to find latest firmware for my model. I tried to update it through system menu but it didn’t work. I have found couple of methods to update media players which has Realtek chips. Read More »
Empty word document is staring at me and I don’t know what to write. I am going back to Turkey on 2nd of July 20:25 and I am full of emotions. However, it is hard to express it with my poor vocabulary. I wish we could upload our emotions but, unless someone really intelligent finds a solution (winks to himself) you are stuck with my poor English. I will leave the drama behind and talk about the good things that I remember. I will write it at once so don’t expect structure, grammar or any sense at all. Anyway here it goes…
It is that time of year, the pranking of students! Last year I pranked a couple of students during their presentations. You can check last year’s prank by checking this link. This year I wanted to prank more students and increase the level of awesomeness. Challenge accepted!
