The mobile link for google plus (slow connections):
If you are using chrome, you should use https://m.google.com/app/plus/ for the better version.
If you encounter the glib gio error while firing an app from the commandline/shell, such as this one:
GLib-GIO:ERROR:/build/buildd/glib2.0-2.28.6/./gio/gdbusconnection.c:2279:initable_init: assertion failed: (connection->initialization_error == NULL)
Download the script from: https://gist.github.com/a664a61a49296da16e47
1. Opera 11.10 -> Me likey 🙂

4. Firefox Aurora (The dev build)
5. Ubuntu Natty
6. My new blogname.
This is a nifty little script which I use for google chrome portability. There is no proper portable chrome app with proper update functionalities.
How does it work:
TODO: If the existing installation on a comp is updated one, update my installation to that one. Will do that when I boot into windows next time :).
If you simply install p7zip-full, it fails to unrar rar archive saying “Unsupported Method” and “Sub items Errors: 1”.
To get rid of it, install the p7zip-rar which adds the codec Rar29.so required for the same. Its available in the repos. I don’t know why they have not included it in the full version, probably its non-free.
Some of you might be wondering how to share a google chrome profile between a windows and a linux operating system. Copying or creating a symbolic link doesn’t seem to work as the extensions go haywire. The reason is the use of “\\” in the profiles created in windows. Use the following command to change the path names in the Preferences file to use a ‘/’ instead of ‘\\’.
sed -i ‘s/\\\\/\//g’ ~/.config/google-chrome/Default/Preferencesas
Happy chroming! Its still the fastest starting browser.
There are many ways. But my favorite is to use a bookmark for the official usage site:
https://www.tatatele.in/prepaidPhoton/postUsage.do?mdn=<your photon phone number>&SOURCE=postpaidMCCI&d-4030679-p=1
This is for postpaid connections, for prepaid, I do not have any clue. If your accounts page shows the usage stats, you can open the frame in a new tab and get that link.
The only drawback is that its not real time. The delay is generally of 3hrs, but sometimes it may go upto 12 hrs, depending on the server updates. For real tme updates, I use:
Linux: vnstat with its php frontend. http://humdi.net/vnstat/ & http://www.sqweek.com/sqweek/index.php?p=1
