Google’s at it again and this time with a much-needed patent search engine. It sports the same minimalistic interface that’s a trademark of Google and allows you to perform fulltext searches on a database of over 7 million patents and view the details of each patent along with all the drawings / sketches. The scanned pages of the original patents are displayed in a PDF-like format with the ability to zoom in/out on the scans.

Apparently it uses the same underlying technology as Google Book Search. For those who’ve cracked their skulls over the notorious USPTO search engine this one is a mere breeze ;)

Here’s a screen-shot:

This might act as great tool for patent lawyers. Any comments ?

I came across this terrific freeware tool called Sandboxie that can run almost any given program in a virtual sandboxed space and revert your system back to the original state it was in, once you terminate the program.

YouOS is another experimental operating system that’s built around the Web 2.0 framework and runs straight from your browser providing you with worldwide accessibility (wherever you’ve got an internet connection). Compared to eyeOS, the interface pretty much resembles a Windows or Linux desktop and you can get cracking at it right away. Personally, for me this felt kind of cliche and I’d prefer the eyeOS…

eyeOS is based on the relatively new concept of Web 2.0 and provides you with a new work and organization method. It’s a completely free (Open Source) desktop system running from your browser, where anybody can collaborate and expand it.

This tutorial sparked off from my own ventures to incorporate a particular feature in a software I’m currently working on. It uses a mixture of languages (English & Thai) on a couple of screens to store user data. Certain data like First & Last Names & parts of address were to be entered in Thai – while the rest were in English. Now the current…

It was first published at Astahost Forums on February 5th, 2005.I’m sure all of you must have come across the term DHCP – anyone who’s connects to the internet has to come across it every now and then.

It stores the thousands of code snippets you may accumulate from all over the net over years and helps you keep them all neatly categorized in a fully search-able local lightweight SQLite database.CodeLibrarian, which is entirely written in C# is based on Microsoft’s .NET 2.0 framework and released as…
