Had my Flu Jab today

Hope I will be protected for an year. Main reason for me to take is to protect my young children to get one from me and also not to get flu and be off from work. As a contractor every day off from work really hurts.

Anyone can get a flu jab from any pharmacy for as low as £10. Many employers provide them as free like mine.

Khan Academy

I am really impressed with khanacademy.org. It has come a long way since I last visited this site.

Bill seems to have liked it. Have setup some tasks for him. He wants to be a Maths Wizard like Jacob in his class.

Trying to get him interested into programming as well. Let’s see how it goes. I will try anything to get him off his B4U Music addiction he has picked up recently.

Later on gained confidence to bowl without the stand. Bumpers can be seen in both the videos. They come up at the player’s turn who is setup to use bumpers

Convert PDF to Kindle Friendly Format (MOBI)

I was looking for a free software for converting my pdf files to kindle friendly format files so that ¬†kindle’s features could be utilised.

After some search, Calibre seems to be a good choice for the same. It lets you convert various ebooks into different file formats which are friendly for the many reading devices out in the market.

This software could be used as a good Ebook Management Tool as well.

Below is a video in Action.

Onlive Desktop on iPad in UK

Managed to install Onlive Desktop on my iPad . Was very curious to find out how is it. It looks great so far, but haven’t used much.

This is a free app and lets you logon to a Windows 7 system in Cloud, where excel , word and PowerPoint are installed. We can create files, edit them on IPad and save them. We can access those files later from a pc and can be downloaded.

This app is not available in the UK AppStore. There is a work around to access US iTunes stores from UK and install the App.

The tip mentioned in the post below works really well. Follow it carefully. You might also need to create a US account on Onlive.com as well.

Guide to access US iTunes Store from UK or any other country.
