I have been using twitter quite a lot recently and to users that are using non-Latin tweets, it might have occurred that the hashtags don’t work.
It will add a search link on the word, unfortunately due to a twitter bug, I had to remove the number sign (#) because twitter can’t search with it.
- The script should work with all non-Latin languages (tested Hebrew, Arabic and Chinese)
The script does not work when the “more” button is pressed. If anyone knows how to solve that please contact me.fixed!
I hope this becomes a useful tool for people.
Qutecom Portable – a sip phone for your USB Flash Drive April 18, 2010Posted by GuySoft in Crictor, Hamakor, ITU, open source, programming.
Tags: open source, portable, programming, software, VOIP, windows
I came across the need for a portable VOIP phone for windows, apparently there is no package out there for this.
So I repackaged QuteCom, a cross-platform softphone. Just adding a simple parameter did the job!
You can download the package here.
Extract it and simply run the “runme.bat” file in the folder.
The package is kindly hosted for me on Hamakor FOSS Society. There is also a wiki page with additional information about Qutecom portable there.
Cheaper Than SkypeOut!
Thanks to this package I can now call anywhere on my VOIP accounts. Where usually only skype was available, meaning I have a cheaper-than-skype providers (Curently using voipvoip.com and callcentric). I really think standard VOIP should be more out there among the people giving a healthy competition.
Would love to hear feedback!

During my small semester break I managed to connect my Bumble-b chip to an analog-digital converter (ADC).
With this I can read voltage changes and send the information to the computer to plot live.
Here is a demonstration video:
How its all connected
Pidgin and X-chat plugins to execute a command on new messages February 14, 2010Posted by GuySoft in Crictor, Hamakor, ITU, linux, open source, programming, python.
Tags: open source, pidgin, programming, python, source code, x-chat
A while ago, when I coded message alert plugins for pidgin and X-chat so each time I get a new message my bumble-b LED display would flash, so I thought I might release the code here for people to use.
Both plugins will execute a command of your choice when receiving a new message.
Thanks to Simo Mattila who wrote the base code for the pidgin plugin
- Source code for the pidgin plugin
- You will have to follow the README file and compile the plugin. Then place the created .so file in ~/.purple/plugins/ .
- In the plugin menu there would be a configuration window to set the command.
- Source code for the X-chat plugin
- You will have to set the command inside the python file. Then copy it to ~/.xchat2/
- The X-chat plugin also is able to return the name of the user that sent the message.
Here is a video of the X-chat plugin in action:
I hope to find more time to posts the things I am doing, but as usual, university takes up all my time. Stay tuned
Brewing Cider December 24, 2009Posted by GuySoft in Crictor, diy, Hamakor, Uncategorized.
Tags: alcohol, brewing, chemestry, cider, diy
During the semester break, I brewed alcoholic Cider (not to mix with apple juice, which is no-alcoholic). My cider has 7.2% alcohol.
Although some readers might think that making alcohol out of plain apple juice might involve black magic, its actually quite simple. The only thing it really takes is time – about 3 months total to start drinking, but if you wait 5 months, you will get something that tastes much better. Its quite fun, and one can create unique flavors.

This is the second day of the IGF 2009 and the 4th and last day of my journey.
There was a lot to write about, and I had little time back in Israel, so it took a while to publish.
I recommend you read my closing statement.

Today was full and exciting as expected!

IGF 09 Day 2 – Internet Security, Social Networking IPv6 and a football match
Today was the second day of my visit, tomorrow IGF starts! Nearly all of the day I was in the 4th Symposium of GigaNet – a network of academic people that research Internet governance.
Although I am a technical person, and had to figure the basic relation the following: ICANN, IANA, ISOC, IGP, ccTLD and plenty more. However I’ll leave that to another post, since entire doctorates were written on how these organizations interact with each other (well ccTLD is not an organization, but you get the idea).
I managed to separate three topics I found interesting in particular so find the one you like:

(I am blogging this time on my OLPC/Nokia N810 so sorry about the typos)
I thought I might update that I arrived a few hours ago to the IGF conference.
It took about 13 hours to get here, I have mostly been traveling in a taxi cab today from Taba to Shrem. Apparently there are a lot of security checkpoints because of the conference itself!
What is the Internet Governance Forum? – The ‘G’ in IGF
Since I have little of ICT news to tell I thought I might start with a conversation Dima and I had on the way here, regarding what the IGF means – When we wanted to translate the ‘G’ (for Governance) in IGF to other languages we did not know what exactly it means – Is it the government as in maneging the Internet as a resource? Or standardizing the Internet? or perhaps government as in how to get governments to interact with the Internet? It seems its a a bit of all, yet not clearly one of them nether. When looking at the huge number of workshops (10 in parallel!) this seems to become more apparent: privacy and freedom of expression, net neutrality, technical implementation of the infrastructure and how governments and organizations should treat the Internet, its all there. It seems it will be hard pick which workshop to go to!

I thought I might update that I am going to the IGF (Internet Governance Forum) conference in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt from this Friday till Monday. I am going in hope to meet new people and hear the talks. I see this visit as a continuation of my visit to ITU TELECOM Asia 2008 in Thailand last year (which was a lot of fun).
I hope I would find time to update during the conference. I would try and twitter too. I am right in the middle of my second year in physics studies, so I will have little time when I get back.
Hope to update soon
