1. How I got my ICSE results much before the said date and time B-)

    The Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) had announced that they will be publishing the ICSE (Indian Certificate of Secondary Education) 2014 examinations, for grade 10 students, results on the 21st of May at 15:00 IST.

  3. Using Font Awesome in your Qt app

    Update: Using QML instead? Click here to find out how you can use it in your QML app.

    Update 2: The script can now generate a javascript file as well to be used in a QML app.

    I was working on one of my projects and I thought it would be convenient to use Font Awesome instead of separate icon files for different icons (I love Font Awesome, thanks Dave Gandy!). I googled a bit and found some scripts/icon engines that would do this work but I tried none. I didn’t want to include any third party library. I wanted it to be simple. Qt is famous for its simplicity not just for UI implementation but for all of its rich APIs. Thankfully, I came up with a very simple solution. I had to write a simple script (thanks to Qt again) to generate a header file which contained all the Font Awesome icon names and their corresponding unicode values.

  9. Marble 1.5 for Mac OSX!

    I was trying to produce a Marble DMG for Mac OSX since February and as all of you know that OSX has its own banana skins to slip you off, especially when you have upgraded to OSX Mountain Lion ( the decision which I am already regretting ). But, finally I have succeeded in producing a Marble DMG. 

    Henceforth, I would be privileged if all the KDE developers and users who use OSX gave a try to this DMG on their Macs. Here’s the link to the DMG - https://dl.dropbox.com/u/50262219/Marble-1.5.0.dmg . Also, it would be very helpful if you give me your feedback via the Comments, be it criticism or suggestion, so that I can improve upon my work.

    Thank You :)
