It’s Windows Usage Challenge!

November 24, 2013 2:40 pm Leave your thoughts

As you may know by now, I don’t even attempt doing anything without my Hackintosh or Macbook.

However after looking at Windows 8 for some time, I decided to give it a try.

Let’s see whether I will run for my Mac after a week or not 🙂


The software I am going to use so far:

Media player: WebTunes, foobar2000

Messengers and networks: VK, Twitter, Miranda IM, Windows Mail

Browsing: Chrome, Download Master

Audio, video editor: Sound Forge 6.0, Vegas 7

Tidbits: CreativelyControlled, Audio Switcher, Sublime Text, WinSCP, PuTTY

Dakimaker Official Shutdown/Suspend

It’s been a nice half-a-year working on it. I learned the majority of what I know about web development now while making the software for

Sadly, now that the new term at school begins, I will no longer have time to keep DakiMaker updated — it was even on suspend the last month due to a bug in the software.

All the current orders that were in the system will be shipped out.

In case you have a question — email me on my Gmail. It’s on my github website, in case you were wondering.

Don’t worry — sooner or later it will come back in a whole new way.

Right now I am in process of downloading the disk image for it, actually. So it will be back one day.

But for now I must suspend most projects in order to study for the Russian State Exam.

Don’t expect much activity until next summer on any of the projects.

Thanks and see ya next time!

A word on WebTunes — a web-based music storage, coded in 3 days.

First I saw this awesome design by Chris Valleskey on Dribble. Then I stumbled upon Audiocogs Aurora.js. And realized this, when combined, can make an awesome thing. Since I had a decent break of about 3 days in my primary work, I decided to try my hand on a webapp that works completely via Ajax and uses a lot of JavaScript, JQuery and PHP (which seem a lot more fun than Objective-C, at least after over 4 years of just the said language), that would be useful for me since I started learning all the web stuff just a bit less than 4 months ago while trying to create Dakimaker. (Sadly, I learned that I can link MySQL tables as master->detail right after I finished these two.)

I must say it turned out quite good, at least I am writing this while listening to it. Not the best, but can save from carrying around a USB hard drive with FLAC rips of your CDs and some occasionally downloaded mp3s.

Get under the break for an in-depth review, a video, and even a demo playlist.
