Joost – New way of watching full screen TV !

You gotta watch this. I am not a fan of watching internet videos as you know most of the time poor quality and if you increase the size quality will be even worse. I changed my opinion of watching video over internet after seeing Joost. It’s from the founders of Skype. TV like programs for totally free.

Kudos to Mirth Project !!

Recently I had to use an integration engine to integrate data from MySql and Oracle database to another system using LLP. I did a search for open source integration engines and browsed through few of them. Read through them and Mirth Project sounded interesting. Downloaded and could install in a few minutes. Guess what, it is one of the best open source projects I have used. I used version 1.5 and could install in both Windows and RedHat Linux. Currently I am using this for messaging HL7 messages (in xml format).

Kudos to Mirth Project team !!

I could create a channel which reads data from MySql and send xml file using LLP and more importantly all this was done in an hour (from scratch) !!!!
