ODF plugin for MS Office


The OpenDocument format (ODF) is a free and open file format for electronic office documents, such as spreadsheets, presentations and word processing documents. ODF if primarily implemented by office suite and the main file format of the respective product.

This file format was popular among linux (Primarily open source developers as well) fans but the pain was using these documents under a Windows PC having MS Office. MS Office does not natively support OpenDocument currently. However you can download ODF add in for Microsoft Office at And the MS Office will natively support the ODF format from SP2 of Office 2007 onwards.

Few cool things in about URI scheme in Firefox 3


Firefox version 3 was released about a week ago. While I was browsing with Firefox 3 I came to find out few cool things as well. In fact the guys at Mozilla has really a sense of humor than last time. B-)

The changed places I noticed were about: config and addition of about: robots

In about: config there is a kidding warning message as follows.
There is an about: robots Easter egg as well.As usually they have included a new phrase from Book of Mozilla at about:mozilla

Try these with your copy of Firefox as well.

Long Filename Problem in LG KU250


There is a bug in the LG KU250 firmware (at least as of software version 10d) that if you transfer a file with a long file name which is longer than that the phone supports the file simply disappears but the space is occupied from the common memory of the phone. (This problem may not occur if you used external MicroSD card.)

The only option appear to be to restore the firmware into default state. The reset function as well as clear all memory function doesn't solve the problem. A factory reset code wasn't available to be known at the time of writing.

Note: LG KU250 is The winning handset in the GSMA's "3G for All" program 2007.
