Managing Ideas

* What do you do for managing ideas..

– Any software?

– Sticky notes?

– Diary?

I always gets good (sometime even creative too) ideas during bath, loo or breakfast. And, from sometime, I started to maintain ‘Crazy Morning Ideas’ diary with me.

And these Google’ internal tools are also interesting..

Smart spams ;)

* They know what I wanted or want. Before marriage, it was spams regarding some pills 😉 and nowadays it is about lottery or prize of $50,000,00.00 (Note: they care about cents!). or some lonely son/daughter of former dictator of some unknown African country.

HackFest01: Lessons

* Lots of learnings! As I mention before, I tried to get festival-gu working with minimal hack of festival-te. I come to conclusion is it is now job of some what more attention and feedback from others regarding language specific stuffs. But, I also found that festival-te debian package also need to apply upstream patch(s) to work correctly. (see: bug: #404463). I also found solution of Kline to our IP from oftc.net’s IRC channels!

* I hardly sleep for 15 minutes in front of my lcd during event. Pizza was good and thanks to bigbazaar! Thanks to everyone for participation. We are planning to have next HackFest in starting of Feb. See also Nirav’s post about this.
